Delhi Twp. ‘11 budget discussed By WILL KANGAS

DELHI TWP. — The 2011 general fund budget was approved by the board at its Nov. 16 meeting, but not without one ‘nay’ vote. Trustee Derek Bajema voted against that portion of the budget. “I voted no on the 2011 general fund budget because it plans to spend $142,000 more than the 2010 budget did,” Bajema said. He said he has a hard time voting to approve it after voters recently approved raising taxes for police and emergency services. “Now that new revenue is secured the township continues to spend more creating problems down the line that should be fixed today,” Bajema said. The bulk of the increase in spending is used to fund higher personnel costs in the fire department, he said. “We have a respondsibility to offset that increase with cuts so the budget stays

flat,” he said. Township Supervisor Stuart Goodrich said this was not a ‘final’ vote on the budget and that Bajema’s charges are misguided. Goodrich said it is apparent everyone else on the board is comfortable with the budget. “If we are all happy with it why would we want to make some changes?” he said. He said the township budget operates differently than how state budgets operate. The township has made personnel cuts as well as cuts in health care costs for its employees in recent years. Goodrich said the increase in costs for 2011 could be because of the higher costs of health insurance that is being felt across the state. Continued decreases in state revenue funding and drops in property tax value cut revenue dramatically,

and Dimondale since 1995

HOLT — The Holt High School kitchen area was transformed into a makeshift apple pie factory on Nov. 13. Volunteers from both the Holt Boys and Girls Swimming and Diving teams put on hair nets and aprons and made apple pies as part of a yearly fundraiser. Co-organizer Mark Majeske said the fundraiser is in its 17th year and is becoming a Holt tradition. “We sold over 1,000 pies this year,” he said. “It is quite the operation.” Team members pre-sell the pies leading up to the assembly day, where lines of volunteers mix apples with cinammon and dough before they are packaged and shipped to those that ordered them. “We ran out of cinammon a couple times,” Majeske said. “I think we cleaned Sam’s Club out that day.” He said volunteers assembled pies using over 3,000 pounds of apples. “It gets messy, but we clean it up afterwards and make sure everything looks the same way that we found it.” The process of making them starts a few days earlier, as the dough is prepared at the Immaculate Heart of Mary church kitchen. From there the dough is taken to the high school kitchen on the Friday night beforehand and the preparation begins. “Then on Saturday we go full speed ahead,” he said. “We were still making them as people were picking them up around noon.” There are still some extra pies. Those who want them can contact Janet Harris at (517) 763-5428.

LANSING — The Early Childhood Investment Corp. (ECIC) has awarded $928,233 in ReImagine Early Years grants to 11 school districts across the state to foster innovative P-8 (prenatal through age 8) educational reform. The Ingham School District, which includes Holt Public Schools, will get $100,000 of the grant. ReImagine Early Years grant funds will be used to: • Implement preschool or other early childhood programs to improve school readiness • Improve student proficiency in core content areas • Create continuity between early learning and elementary schools • Create high quality learning environments in early grades

The grants, which were funded by the Kellogg Foundation, were targeted to school districts identified by the Michigan Department of Education last year as Project ReImagine sites. Project ReImagine is an effort to encourage innovative strategies using public and private partnerships to help change the way education is delivered in Michigan. Schools or school districts receiving the grants are: Comstock Public Schools, Farwell Area Schools, Grand Rapids Public Schools, Ingham ISD, Lakeview Community Schools, MasonLake-Oceana ISD, N.I.C.E. Community School District, Oxford Community Schools, Saginaw ISD, Traverse Bay Area ISD, and University Preparatory

Academy in Detroit. “Making sure children have high quality early learning opportunities from birth through age 8 is crucial to their later success in school and in life,” said Jessica Gillard, director of early learning and innovation for the ECIC, a public/private initiative that is spurring investment in enhanced delivery of early childhood programs through system-building. State Superintendent Mike Flanagan prioritized the focus on early childhood education as a key component for Project ReImagine applications. “We understand the value of providing children with quality learning well-before they toddle into kindergarten classrooms,” Flanagan said. “These grant funds will go

DIMONDALE — Dimondale Toddler Time volunteer, Connie Caron, had a desire to give back to others and help teach young children the value of doing good deeds. Connie had heard of the Connecting Kids Project and knew the list of items needed for foster care children in Eaton County included blankets.

Taking this information the Dimondale toddler time spent about four weeks working on the blankets to give to those in need. Laminda Dingwell, a mother of two children (Isaiah and Elijah), offered to help Connie out by taking her own free time and cutting out all the fabric needed to donate 9 blankets to the

Connecting Kids Project. Dimondale Toddler Time made 2 infant blankets, 4 blankets for older children and 3 teenage blankets. They even included a ribbon on the blankets that say “Hand made with love by Dimondale Toddler Time moms and children”. There is a spot for the new owner to write his/her name and date so

the child will know that this blanket is THEIRS and theirs alone. The group also gathered some toiletry items that were on the organization’s wish list for the foster children. Connecting for Kids is a group of volunteers that provide items needed to the Foster Kids in Eaton County so that the children have something that is theirs, without these items the foster children often have little, if any, personal belongings.

Connie read the book The Berenstain Bears – Think of Those in Need by Stan and Jan Berenstain. Then blanket bags in hand they headed to the local drop off site in Dimondale for the Connecting Kids Project, Main Street Pizza. Here they ordered pizza so they could celebrate their gift to others with a pizza party to end Tuesday’s Toddler Time. Toddler Time is a literacy-based playgroup sponsored by Eaton Great Start
