Federal funds could lead to roundabouts By WILL KANGAS

DELHI TWP. – It may be a longshot, but Holt’s busiest intersection may be transformed using a roundabout by 2015. The Delhi Township Planning Commission reviewed a recent analysis by local engineering firm DLZ to determine if a roundabout would help traffic at two of Holt’s intersections. The Cedar Street and Aurelius Road intersection, where five roads converge, was given a higher priority because of its amount of traffic volume. The prelimanary study was conducted because if projects are to get funding from grants, they must have some preliminary work done, Downtown Develop-

ment Authority Executive Director Al McFadyen said. “It’s a longshot, but if this were to become a reality this is one of many baby steps that have to be taken,” McFadyen said. “We don’t know if we would be approved for the funds, but this is one of several hoops we would have to jump through.” The federal funding is available through CMAQ, or Congestion Mitigation and Air Quallity grants. “The nice thing about these types of grants is that it usually provides 100 percent funding,” McFadyen said. The cost of placing a roundabout at Cedar Street and Aurelius Roads was estimated to be $1.2 million. Roundabouts first were talked about publicly during forums last December, when

the DDA hosted a study concerning Cedar Street between Holt Road and Aurelius Road. Cedar Street is going to be resurfaced in late 2011, and a study to change it from four lanes to three was conducted, but rejected. The DDA and township planners have been pursuing “a more walkable” community as requested by residents in a survey. A roundabout at Holt Road and Aurelius Road was also examined, and would cost $1.04 million. McFadyen said a third roundabout at Holt Road and Cedar Street would not seem plausible. “We don’t even know if the use of the roundabout would help with the air quality,” he said. “The next step is to see if we get funding.”

Board readies for next step in budget plans By WILL KANGAS

DELHI TWP. – Now that two millage requests were approved by voters Aug. 3, township trustees and officials plan to move forward with budget plans for 2011. An August 17 meeting was the first township board meeting after the election, and had a light agenda.

But harsh words awaited Township Trustee Derek Bajema at the end of the meeting, as other board members publicly criticized him for his published comments after the millage passed. Trustee Roy Sweet, who chaired the meeting in the absence of Stuart Goodrich, said he and other board members were offended by

Bajema’s quote in the Aug. 8 Holt Community News. In it, Bajema said “My first priority will be to set up dedicated separate funds to make sure this new money is only going to public safety.” Bajema and trustee Jerry Ketchum voted against placing the question of a tax increase to the voters earlier this year.

Sweet said Bajema’s quote implied that the board and township officials would not make sure the extra taxes would go towards police and fire services. “He should know that we are required to do this by law,” Sweet said. “Staff took some offense to it as well.” Bajema said what he meant was that because mil-

lions were taken out of the general fund to help pay for police and fire in the past, he would hope that money that is now freed up would not be used to pay for other township services. “it’s what we do with the general fund money that otherwise would have been obligated to public safety,” he said. He said he doesn’t feel

as thought that is what voters thought they were supporting. He said he would prefer if the township put the money into a reserve fund specific to police and fire use only. “I just want to make sure both current and new funding is being dedicated to this important township service,” he said.

Workers find remains that are sent to MSU

Bone find causes slight delay By WILL KANGAS

Pioneer Cemetery, located on Aurelius Road, north of Cedar Street, has been in existence since 1853. It is the resting place for Delhi’s first township clerk, Caleb Thompson, elected in 1842, and is the burial site for more than 200 of Delhi’s pioneer residents. Pioneer Cemetery is an Ingham County historical site and is in the Michigan State Register of Historic Sites. A new retaining wall will allow a wider path.


DELHI TWP. – Bones thought to be over 100 years old were found in the ground next to Pioneer Cemetery. Construction workers were excavating near the cemetery on Aug. 13 when they found the remains. The workers were clearing earth for a project that will place a wall further towards the historic cemetery, and provide more room for pedestrians walking the sidewalk next to it. It was interesting,” Delhi Downtown Development Authority Executive Director Al McFadyen said. “We think these were very old bones and probably were moved as Aurelius Road grew in the 20th century,” he said. McFadyen said there was no sign of a box or casket for the remains, which appeared to be more than one person. The bones included a compete skull and the remains were found at 6 to 8 feet below ground. A preliminary scan before the project started was used to make sure the historic cemetery’s plots would not be disturbed. “It was a surface scan though,” McFadyen said. “So it would not have detected the bones that were found be-

cause they were so deep and away from the plots.” Township officials said work on the project was halted and the Ingham County Sheriff’s Dept. Chief Deputy Greg Harless was called to the scene. Harless said the remains and the site had to be investigated to ensure that they were burials and not the result of any foul play. According to a township memo, police representatives were present on-site and began their investigation which included assistance from Dr. Todd Fenton, an anthropologist from Michigan State University and his students. Dr. Fenton proceeded to evaluate the remains and sift through some of the soil looking for fragments. “It was determined that the remains were easily 100 years old and clearly were from an unmarked grave site. The remains were taken to MSU, where they will most likely stay and be used as a study tool for researchers,” the memo stated. Work on the site started again on Monday, and more bones were found, this time a larger group, including ribs and shoulder blades, McFadyen said. For now, major excavation is complete and the new retaining wall was slated to be installed by week’s end. As for the bones, all of the remains collected will be housed by MSU on a permanent basis and used for study.

Sports Rams football team preps for new season opener on Friday. “He used the simple phrase, ‘count on me,’ “ Holt coach Al Slamer recalls. “It’s a trust factor that tells one another, ‘Count on me to work hard, to be there for one another, to always be a good teammate.’ It has great meaning and our players have really rallied around that statement.” After an outstanding season in 2009, which ended with a state semifinal loss to Division 1 powerhouse Novi Catholic Central, Slamer and


HOLT — The message came loud and clear for the Holt Ram’s football team. At the conclusion of Holt’s summer skills camp, a number of college coaches addressed the team and spoke to them about what it takes to be successful. Chris Boden, who is the assistant head coach at Ferris State University, projected a message that has stuck with the Rams as they prepare for their season

the Rams have shifted their focus to doing all they can to get back to that semifinal game, and this time, be on the winning side. “It hurts because we know that we were good enough to win it last year,” Slamer said. “I can tell that this is a pretty hungry team we have this year. They want to get back.” The Rams return 11 starters and 40 senior lettermen from a final four team that set the standard for success for Mid-Michigan

football in 2009. Gone are the household names like quarterback Jordan Beachnau , receiver Dominic Todd, tight end Nick Schmidt and linebacker Ben Dudley. But according to Slamer, this year’s club will rely heavily on an experienced defense and special teams unit to win games. “If you’re counting on outscoring people all the time and only focused on offense and not worried about your defense, well then it could be a long year for us,” Slamer said. “Our strong suit is that we are solid on defense and special teams and we will keep developing our offense, which will come along with time.” Holt returns its entire fourman front on defense, as well as all-league linebacker Mike Smith, who will captain the defense. Also returning in the secondary is senior safety Jake Gallimore, who played both ways for the Rams last season and will be looked at to do the same this fall. Slamer believes that his team’s ability to fill key voids at the offensive and defensive skill positions will be key to their success this fall. The good news is that the majority of those players who will be looked at to fill those positions will be seniors this year, and had the chance to watch and work with varsity starters last season. “We have some inexperienced seniors, which on any good team, that’s what happens,” Slamer said. “Junior year is that apprentice year,

Ph: 1 5 7.323.3645 0100027450

and then they come back and contribute as seniors.” On the offensive side of the ball, Gallimore and junior Jake Bozzo, are the likely candidates to play quarterback for the Rams this season. Gallimore started at running back last season, but received some reps at quarterback when the Rams were winning big. Bozzo quarterbacked the junior varsity team to a 7-2 record last season and was called up for the state playoffs. Both quarterbacks have good arm strength and are extremely mobile, which is a key factor in the Rams “power spread” offense. Curtis Nick and Nick Thomas return at running back and should lead a powerful rushing attack. Nick was the team’s leading rusher and Thomas rushed for 400 yards and caught 12 passes for the Rams last season. “Were going to spread you out and bring you in tight, and when your quarterback has the ability to run well, all of those factors kind of come together,” Slamer said.


Holt Community News


Paving the way for the running game will be an experienced offensive line, which features all-league standout Kenny Rogers, who has already verbally committed to play at Central Michigan next year. Joining him is 6-foot-7 256 lb. guard Ben Steward. An open competition will continue to develop throughout camp as the Rams look to fill some voids at both receiver and tight end. Holt’s top returning receiver is senior Danny Middleton, who caught 20 passes for the Rams last fall. Holt will open its season with a nonleague game against Sexton. When asked what will make this season a successful one, Slamer pauses for a few seconds. “It’s not all about winning or loosing, its about giving your best every single time and being able to look in the mirror and knowing that we did our absolute best,” he said. “If we give it everything we absolutely can, regardless of the outcome….What more could you ask for?”

Saying they lacked information, Lansing City Council members tabled a request Aug. 16 to permit a South Cedar Street commercial building once housing a Builders Square and Farmer Jack grocery store to become a place of worship. “We have to be in full faith that we’re making the right decision,” said Councilwoman Jessica Yorko, requesting more details from Abundant Grace Faith Church. The request remains in the council’s Committee of the Whole, which is expected to return to the church’s

proposal by September. Yorko and other council members wanted more specifics regarding the church’s plans for improvements, outreach and how the church would accomplish its goals inside the commercial building. According to the Rev. Louis Dixon Sr., the church has been leasing its present building at 3222 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. He declined comment after the vote. Yet, he said before the vote that he has high hopes for the 5750 S. Cedar St. location that the church purchased for approximately $700,000 from a California bank. “Our job is to try to make

Fire chief: Americhem blaze handled well By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — The alarm for the Aug. 6 fire at the Americhem Sales Corp. filled Mason Fire Chief Kerry Minshall with dread. “This is the type of call you never want to hear,” Minshall said in his report about the local response to the fire before the Mason City Council on Aug. 16. A series of explosions rocked the Americhem plant, 340 North St., at about 3 p.m. No one was seriously injured. Sgt. Robert Ott of the Ingham County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management said the cause of the blaze still is under investigation. A preliminary investigation, Ott noted, indicated that some type of spark or static could have caused the initial fire.

Unintentional and undetermined

August 22, 2010

Minshall said in an Aug. 17 e-mail that there is no a specified cause yet. The Ingham County Sheriff Office’s Cause and Origin Team, Americhem’s insurance company (Aaxia Chemical Insurance) and the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration have all looked at the scene and have differing opinions as to the probable cause. “My report will therefore be ‘unintentional and undetermined,’” Minshall wrote. Americhem is a chemical distributor and blender that carries a line of industrial chemicals, solvents, oils and automotive fluids. Minshall told the city council that a tanker loaded with mineral spirits exploded. However, he pointed out that past decisions resulted in a positive outcome concerning the blaze.

Before 1998, Minshall explained, solvents were kept in Americhem’s main building, but later were moved to the rear of the facility. Also, the Mason Fire Department’s large-diameter hose allowed the water main to be on top of the ground. At its peak during the fire, he said, firefighters used 4,000 gallons of water per minute for two hours. Minshall said dikes were placed in a nearby street to contain water. Good turnout gear also helped firefighters with the blaze, according to Minshall. “This type of fire is extremely, hot,” Minshall said. “It’s hotter than a typical structure fire.” Years ago, he said, firefighters’ coats would have melted in the heat. With such a large fire, more help was needed. Although Mason firefighters were on the scene within a minute, Minshall said aid was received from Delhi Township, Dansville and Leslie. Ingham County HazMat also was activated for the Americhem fire, shutting off valves at the tank farm on site. The Mason Police Department helped with traffic control for what Minshall called a “spectator event.” Councilmember Neal Johnson asked Minshall if anything could have been handled differently, noting, “It looked textbook perfect.” Minshall said that although he replayed the fire in his mind, he was happy with the outcome. In a letter to the community from Bruce L. Whetter, Americhem president, said considerable efforts were made for safety-related items when he rebuilt the facility after purchasing the assets of the old Americhem

in 1998. “While rebuilding,” Whetter wrote, “we spared no expense to assure that stateof-the art equipment was installed and a large distance was put between the solvents tank farm and any other buildings.” Whetter also credited the first responders at the fire. “The responders were many and totally coordinated with the Sheriff’s Office, the fire chief, hazardous materials personnel, as well as Homeland Security.”

Right: Firefighters battle a blaze at Americhem on Aug. 6, which is still under investigation.

racers compete

Customer Appreciation Night held at Spartan DELHI TWP. — Valvoline Instant Oil Change, along with the Spartan Speedway, hosted Customer Appreciation Night for all of its loyal customers on the evening of Aug. 13. With the season winding down, and point chases heating up in every division, Friday night was no exception. The Andrews Chevrolet Super Late Model division saw three lead changes among the leaders and Logan Beckwith, of Hanover, came out on top. Jon McNett started the night out with a commanding lead, but Jimmy Gallagher narrowed the gap, with Chris Hettinger and Evan Barrett tacked to his rear bumper. Caution waved for McNett and Hettinger, with Hettinger having to restart from the tail of the field on lap 14. Gallagher jumped to the high side of McNett and took away the top spot on the restart, with Beckwith moving quickly up through the field. Beckwith caught Gallagher and the duo pulled away from the field, leaving Barrett and Dave Stehouwer to decide third. Stehouwer got around Barrett on lap 24 with Hettinger diving under Barrett to take away fourth on lap 26. Caution waved four laps later, and Gallagher restarted outside of Beckwith. Beckwith took the lead from Gallagher after the restart, while Hettinger got around Stehouwer for third. Beckwith went on to take the win over Gallagher. Hettinger, Stehouwer

and Barrett rounded out the top five. Gallagher took the heat win for the division.

Pure stocks John Clancy, of Harbor Springs, made the trek down to the quarter-mile bullring in Mason to run with the Pure Stock division. The division also welcomed George Speer, who experienced mechanical difficulties prior to the start of the 20-lap feature. Nine Pures lined up for their feature, with Clancy taking the early lead. Mark Childers took over the top spot on lap two, with Matt Childers right on his tail. Matt took the lead on lap five with Landon Hidy sitting third. Hidy took the lead on lap nine, but Matt gave him a run for his money, keeping pace with the leader for the remaining 11 laps. Mark Carson and Jordan Harvey had a battle royal going to decide the fourth spot, with Carson coming out on top. At the line, it was Hidy, Matt Childers, Mark Childers, Carson, and Harvey. Matt Childers took the heat win for the division.

Valvoline feature Some new faces took the opportunity to run the Valvoline Instant Oil Change 35-lap feature. Mike Wieman made the long haul from Harbor Springs and Paul Jamison, tire specialist for Martin Truex, made the trip to Spartan Speedway from

MIS to get behind the wheel of Tom Hernly Jr.’s Modified. Welcome back to Gilbert Little and Roger Kellogg, both making their first appearance of the season. Sonny Coito took the early lead from Wieman, just two laps in, with Wayne Haughton in hot pursuit. Behind the leaders, Ron Parish, Chris Stearns and Travis Eddy were battling for position. Haughton took the lead from Coito on lap seven, as Eddy challenged Parish for third on lap nine. Haughton put some real estate between himself and Coito in second, while Eddy reeled in Coito and went to work on him for second, but ran out of laps in his bid for the second position. Chris Ozanich jumped into the mix and was able to run away from Stearns for fourth. At the stripe, it was Haughton, Coito, Eddy, Ozanich and Stearns. Jim Heeney and Nate Moon took wins in their heats.

Pony stocks Ten Boss Snow Equipment Pony Stocks lined up for the 20-lap A-feature with Todd Metz Sr. taking the lead at the drop of the green. Patrick Denison moved into second on lap three and took the lead by lap six. Tyler Heeney and Todd Metz Jr. were mixing it up to decide third. Edson Rowley Jr. jumped into the mix and the fans saw a five-way battle for third shaping up as Wayne Beckner Jr.

and Darren Wright joined the trio. Metz Jr. got around Heeney for third and set his sights on his dad for second. Metz Jr. took the second spot away at the halfway point and set out to reel in Denison for first. Metz Jr. caught Denison on lap 12 and made the pass for the lead on lap 15. Beckner Jr. broke free form the five car pack and reeled in Denison for third, but ran out of laps for a shot at the lead. At the checkered, it was Metz Jr., Denison, Beckner Jr., Metz Sr. and Heeney. Brandon Moody took the early lead in the 20-lap B-feature, but veteran driver, Darrell Taylor quickly moved in to challenge Moody for the lead. Moody was able to hold off Taylor for 14 laps, while Scott Sparagowski gained on Taylor for third. Taylor drove under Moody for the lead on lap 15 and drove away from Moody in second. Sparagowski went to work on Moody for second but Moody was able to out run him. After 20 laps, it was Taylor, Moody, Sparagowski, Rob Miller and Wayne Parkhurst. Taylor and Metz Sr. tallied heat wins for the evening.

This year’s Festival marks 12 years of family fun! Starting with Saturday’s big parade and events to the spectacular fireworks finale, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy.



Hometown Festival makes changes in 2010 By WILL KANGAS

HOLT — 2010 Holt Hometown Festival Committee Chair Sharon Osborn thought her job would be simple. “It turned out to be quite the job,” Osborn said. “But it will all be worth it.” Osborn went door to door in Holt to drum up support

and ideas for the festival, which will be Aug. 28 and is in its 12th year. “I call it getting ‘happy feet,’” she said. “The result was some changes this year and some great ideas for next year.” Rather than being concentrated in one location, the festival events will branch out a bit this year. The Tim Horton’s/Cold

Creamery at on Cedar Street will host a classic car show in its parking lot. The showings will be judged and trophies awarded, along with live music from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Co-owner Michele Hirschfield said she is excited that the festival is branching out to other locations. “It’s a great way to see what Holt has to offer,” she

said. That’s not to say there won’t be plenty to do at the festival’s usual site, behind Sycamore Elementary and next to the Holt Junior High. “I’ve heard that there will be some new inflatables,” Osborn said. Those houses of bounces will be available during children’s activities time from noon until 6 p.m.

Something new this year will be “Club Twenty One” for tweens and teens. “We felt there wasn’t something to do for kids that were older,” Osborn said. “When the car show moved, it freed up space.” The club, sponsored by Journey Life Church in Holt, will have video games, music and laser tag. Dancing will be available

form 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. Osborn said the Holt Farmer’s Market is another location for the festival. It will feature live music and have special vendors there as well, she said. “We managed to pull off what will be a fun time,” Osborn said. “Based on the feedback I received this year, next year’s will be even more fun.”

Courtesy image The Holt Hometown Festival promises plenty to do for all ages, including vendors, inflatables, a car show and fireworks, as well as an open parade. The parade route will cover alot of ground, and will end at the Holt Junior High.

Okemos Army Sgt. broke down, family says Iraq combat veteran will undergo tests By KEVIN GRASHA

OKEMOS — The Iraq war combat veteran accused of firing a several shotgun rounds at Meridian Township police officers near his Okemos home Aug. 9 will undergo psychological testing to determine whether a criminal case can proceed against him. Frank Reynolds, Army Sgt. Brad Eifert’s attorney, said in a court hearing Aug. 17 before 55th Dis-

trict Judge Thomas Boyd that the 35-year-old soldier was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder when he returned home from his second year of duty Eifert in Iraq in 2006. But what exactly led to the Eifert’s mental breakdown on Aug. 9 remains unclear. The day of the incident, Eifert’s commander and another sergeant visited with him, according to his grandfather, Gerald Eifert. “He just broke down over something,” Gerald Eifert said. “He knew he

needed help, so he called them.” Judge Boyd last week ordered Brad Eifert to undergo criminal responsibility and competency tests. Eifert is charged with five counts of assault with intent to murder. Prosecutors say he fired the shotgun at five officers while they surrounded him in a wooded area near his home on Wabaningo Road. The maximum sentence for assault with intent to murder is life in prison. Prosecutors also have issued five alternative counts against Eifert of assault with a dangerous weapon, which is punishable by up to four years in prison. Reynolds, said his client “had absolutely no in-

tention of killing or hurting anyone.” Gerald Eifert said his grandson likely was shooting into the air.

Working as recruiter He recently had been working as a recruiter with a recruiting battalion in Lansing, officials said. He was chaplain for the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Mason, according to a post official. In 2006, he served in the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, officials said. Eifert also served in Iraq in 2003 with another infantry division. His grandparents said they don’t know much about his time in Iraq. Eif-

ert’s wife, Michelle, declined to comment for this story. The Mason High School graduate received several medals, including a Combat Action Badge, Reynolds said. The badge is for soldiers who actively engage the enemy or are engaged by the enemy, according to the Army. On Aug. 9, the day of the incident, Eifert was “having disorganized thoughts,” Reynolds said in court.

Sought help He sought help from his commander and another sergeant. The three met at Eifert’s grandparents’ house in Alaiedon Township. Eifert then drove to

his home. According to police, that evening, at about 7:30 p.m., officers were called to the home after a report of an altercation. Eifert, who was in the garage, was “agitated” and “threatened to shoot the officers,” according to police. He then went into the wooded area, where officers contained him for several hours while talking to him on a cell phone. Authorities say he fired several rounds at the officers while he was in the woods. At about 10:55 p.m., he walked back inside the home and refused to surrender. Police used a Taser to subdue and arrest him.

American Red Cross lists local blood drives LANSING — The American Red Cross encourages all eligible donors to make an appointment to donate blood before summer comes to a close, because there is currently an urgent need for blood donors. “During a heat wave, we sometimes see an even bigger decline in the number of blood donors than in a typical summer,” said Sharon Jaksa, CEO for the Great Lakes Region of the American Red Cross. “The challenge is that people don’t want to leave their air conditioned homes or businesses to donate blood.” The Red Cross needs to collect about 700 units of blood everyday to ensure patients throughout the Great Lakes Region get the blood products they need. All types are needed, but right now, types O negative, A negative and B negative are especially needed.
