Board talks about budget, LEAP value By WILL KANGAS

DELHI TWP. — Township trustee Derek Bajema said he was surprised to see he was the only board members to submit ideas for cuts to the 2011 budget recently. Bajema said trustees were asked to bring ideas to the Oct. 5 meeting, and his list included cuts across the township. “I don’t want to get into a situation where we are threatening the public

again,” Bajema said. He was talking about the recent voter-approved millage increases for police and emergency services. Bajema said township officials threatened the public by telling them the police force was going to be cut in half. Township Supervisor Stuart Goodrich said there were no threats. “We simply explained what could happen if the millage didn’t pass,” Goodrich See

Contract ratified for one year By WILL KANGAS

HOLT — A one-year contract between Holt Public Schools and its teacher’s union has been ratified. The Holt Board of Education approved the contract at its Oct. 4 meeting. Negotiations started in June between the district and its 350 Holt Education Association members. “Both sides really rolled their sleeves up to get this done,” Board President John Malatinsky said. Teachers were working without a contract since August. Holt Education Association President Eric Pulver said there were disagreements on both sides, but for the most part the negotiations were peaceful. “Because of the uncer-

tainty in regards to finances from the state there were issues to overcome,” Pulver said. “But the culture of trust between the HEA and administration helped get it done.” Pulver said the financial questions also contributed to the fact that the contract is for one year. The last contract was for three. According to the new contract, teachers will pay less in premiums for health care in exchange for switching to a higher prescription co-pay. Co-pays previously cost $5/$10 depending on use of generic brand drugs. The drug co-pay was changed to $10/$20. As for salary, Pulver said there was no major increase or decrease in the multiple salary ranges spelled out in the contract.

He said there was a 3 percent overall change to offset a decrease in net pay because members will be required to put money into a state retirement account. “We wanted to make sure the loss in net income would offset the 3 percent,” he said. Administration has three more contracts yet to negotiate: secretaries, paraeducators and bus drivers. Other changes from the previous contract include: • Holt Central High School teachers will be given paid planning time. • Mid-Winter Break will consist of two days instead of five, resulting in an earlier release of students for summer in June. • The HEA President will be provided release time for union business.

Surprise comes for Holt teacher By WILL KANGAS

HOLT — Sycamore Elementary teacher Tom Kreft got quite a surprise Oct. 5. A room full of fourth graders and representatives from OfficeMax greeted him with $1,000 and a new chair. It was all part of OfficeMax’s national campaign to help teachers pay for school supplies. “A Day Made Better” goes to 1,100 teachers across the country. “What a special day for Tom,” Sycamore Elementary Principal Melissa Usiak said. “What a special day for Holt schools as well.” Usiak said the school kept it a secret and staged a fourth grade school assembly rehearsal to keep Kreft in the dark.

“He was very surprised,” she said. “And having the entire fourth grade there to cheer for him was special.” On the OfficeMax website, Co-worker Sandy Callis said Kreft deserves it because he is a special teacher. “He is a lifelong learner who translates that enthusiasm to his students,” Callis wrote. The site includes photos of the event and tracks them as they happen to each teacher across the country. As for Sycamore Elementary, Office Max representative Serena Kinney said her favorite part was the joy of the event and the joy that could be seen in Kreft and the students. “One child raised her hand and said he loved Mr. Kreft and enjoyed coming to school everyday to see him,” Kinney said.

Five-week support group offered for loss of loved one Everybody grieves in his or her own way - and every loss is unique but one thing grievers often have in common is feeling isolated by their feelings of sadness and loss. That’s why Palmer, Bush & Jensen Family Funeral Homes is offering a 5 week support group during October and November - to offer a space to talk about loss in a setting where that kind of talking is supported; a space to express feelings of loss and not feel it’s something that should be hidden; a space to learn more about grief and realize that what you may be experiencing as someone who is grieving is completely natural and normal. The group will be meeting on Wedneday evenings from 6:30pm to 8pm at the Holt Delhi Chapel (5035 Holt Rd) for five weeks (Oct 13, Oct 20, Oct 27, Nov 3 & Nov 10).

Board names room after Davis Budget: Board talks LEAP dues


HOLT – Former Holt Superintendent Tom Davis was honored recently by having a room named after him. A ceremony was held before the Holt Board of Education met formally on Oct. 4. “It was time to recognize Tom for over 30 years of dedication to the district,” Board President John Malatinsky said. “What an honor,” Davis said. “It was nice to come back and see the people I used to work with. I spent most of my life in Holt.” Davis retired two years ago but has been busy as of late. He has turned into a “Superintendent-for-hire” with stints at Dansville and currently DeWitt Public Schools. After retiring he joined the Michigan Association of Superintendents and traveled the state to help first-year superintendents. “We have 100 first-year superintendent’s this year,” Davis said. “I hope they let me come back to help them.” From there Dansville called and asked if Davis could fill on an interim basis until the post could be filled.

said. He said it was the duty of the township to explain to voters what kinds of scenarios could play out. Voters approved the requests in August, and now the board will be approving the 2011 budget in December. “It appears to be business as usual now that the tax increase was approved,” Bajema said. Trustee Roy Sweet said he examined the budget and is comfortable with what is being recommended. “We have a township manager and department heads who can make adjustments to balance their budgets,” Sweet said. “Our job isn’t to make a $500 cut here and there. It’s to steer our competent managers in the right direction.” Bajema said he was accused of micromanaging the budWill Kangas get.

HOLT — The Holt Rams swim and dive teams are trading their goggles for oven mitts to commence the 17th annual Apple Pie Fundraiser. Over the years, more than 30,000 pies have been sold to Holt and surrounding communities to help support the swim program. “This is one of our main fundraisers for the year,” said Head Coach Marty Pohl. “Its fun making all of the pies, and the community counts on us to do it. They are all handmade and offered at a very fair price; $10 each or 3 for $28.” “We are in a re-building phase for both the boys and girls teams, but we have a strong core to build from,” Pohl said. “And you can never have enough swimmers”. Fundraisers like these help to reduce participation costs, which ultimately recruit more athletes. And the swimmers and parents have a blast making pies; over 1300 in about 10 hours. “It is quite the assembly line”. Rams swimming has a proud tradition of Excellence; more than 20 conference championships for girls and boys over the past 20 years and more academic All-Americans, 31 in all,

Holt High School girl’s cross country team members gather for a group picture after “Ruth’s Race” Tuesday afternoon, October 5, 1010. The race honored assistant cross country and track coach, Ruth “Ooche” Pridgeon. Pridgeon, died May 11, 2010 from pancreatic cancer. The top fourteen Holt harriers wore purple uniforms, and sold purple t-shirts in her honor, donating the funds to

Teacher/coach’s legacy honored with special race By GEOFF KIMMERLY

October 10, 2010

HOLT — The first wearing of Holt’s purple cross country uniforms was not the only thing that stuck out Oct. 5 to Rams girls coach Pam Stafford. As they remembered and honored a popular teacher and dedicated coach, Holt’s girls and boys runners seemed to carry something extra into the races against Grand Ledge and New Covenant Christian. They wore purple for Ruth Pridgeon, a middle school teacher and assistant coach for the high school’s cross country and track programs, who died May 11 at age 35 after battling pancreatic cancer. “The intensity of the girls and the guys wanting to run their best. They stepped up beautifully,” Stafford said. “They ran with their hearts and you could tell because ... they embraced the moment.” The race was tabbed

“Ruth’s Race” and will become an annual part of the fall season, Stafford said. Pridgeon died during last track season. Prior to that, on suggestion from some of her runners, the Rams created shirts supporting her fight that were designed by thensenior Shelley Dexter. Deep purple is the color associated with pancreatic cancer research. Stafford and her fellow cross country and track coaches met after Pridgeon’s death with the goal of doing something more. She and boys cross country coach David Foy decided heading into this fall to have a race in October, the same month as Pridgeon’s birthday. Along with wearing purple uniforms, the team sold shirts Tuesday that read “Ruth’s Race” and quoted one of Pridgeon’s many encouragements: “Never stop running until the finish line.” These shirts were designed by current senior Karina Drachman. Among Pridgeon’s contri-

butions at Holt was a fifthand sixth-grade “Girls on the Run” program she started to bolster girls physical fitness. Through that shared interest, she met Stafford. And Pridgeon’s legacy will be remembered by a group of girls from that program who will start high school a year from now. “She brought so much energy and enthusiasm to the girls and to the guys for both cross country and track,” Stafford said.

in a long line of successful athletes and thanks, in part, to the dedication from former longtime coaches such as John Bullock, Ron Pohlonski and the late Rick Edwards. “It’s something people want to see continue on,” said Samantha Williams, the team’s first-year coach. “It’s also to recognize a legacy that it’s the first year these girls are all coming together. In other sports, all three of these schools are huge rivals. To ask them, after playing against each other, to swim together this year, it says a lot about all the girls’ character.” Williams has four athletes

“It’s something people want to see continue on.” – Samantha Williams, coach each from Everett, Eastern and Sexton. A counseling masters student interning at Otto Middle School, Williams was hired in early summer. Her swimmers found out about the combined team at the start of August. Their first practices focused on team-building to help meld the three into one. The swimmers then came up with possibilities for a name, and voted for Legacy as the winner. Williams grew up in Jenison, which boasts a regular top-10 state finisher in girls

swimming. She’s assisted by Nathan Burchfield, a former all-area swimmer for the Vikings who graduated in 2006. The Legacy has had a tough start with losses in its first six dual meets. But Williams has received an encouraging sign. She also will coach a middle school program at Otto, and more than 30 girls have signed up.

Budget: Delhi trustees disagree Continued from page 4

A LEAP in faith The board voted to approve membership dues for LEAP, a regional economic development organization. Trustees Bajema and Jerry Ketchum voted against paying the membership dues, which were reduced by LEAP from $35,000 to $10,000. “I was under the impression the Delhi Township Downtown Development Authority was in charge of helping to capture new business,”

Ketchum said. Goodrich said LEAP is a “fantastic tool,” while Bajema said he didn’t like the fact that LEAP’s budget isn’t transparent. “What are they doing with all of this money?” Bajema asked. Goodrich said LEAP is partly responsible for bringing at least two businesses to Delhi Township, and the taxes they pay are more than enough to cover the LEAP membership dues. Draths Corporation is one of those businesses, Sweet said. The company is investing a lot of money in its new

headquarters at the Jolly/Pine Tree Road Executive Park area. “If we were to get just one business from our partnership with LEAP that would be enough to cover the dues,” Sweet said. Delhi DDA executive Director Al McFadyen said he supports LEAP, regardless of the fact that the DDA no longer shares the membership dues cost with the township. “That was a decision based on budget, not policy,” McFadyen said. “We support LEAP in its regional approach.”

State University w Political experience: None w Family: Married, two sons, two grandchildren w Campaign website:

What makes you most qualified to hold this office? I have decades of experience managing multimillion dollar projects for General Motors. What are the three most important issues facing the county and how would you address them? The single most important issue facing the county is finances. Property values, private and commercial, continue to decline. County income continues to

decline as a direct consequence. Like all of us, the county must live within its means. What county services do you consider vital and least eligible for cuts? All services must be reviewed relative to the county income. Every effort to maintain and improve the county infrastructure must be the first priority to encourage growth in the private, agricultural and commercial sectors.

Linda Keefe (i) w Party: Democrat w Age: Did not respond. w City of residence: Dimondale w Occupation: Independent con-

tractor for community projects. I also serve as president of the Kids Repair Program (KRP), a non-profit after school program that serves youth ages 9 - 17 in the tri-county area. w Education: BA, Psychology, Castleton College w Political experience: I am serving my fourth term

as a county commissioner. I previously served as a county commissioner in Ingham County. I have been endorsed by the United Auto Workers, the Greater Lansing Labor Council, and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. w Family: married, two step-children w Campaign website: What makes you most qualified to hold this office? This is my fourth term as county commissioner. I chair the Ways and Means committee and have six years of budgeting experience from serving on the Clinton-Eaton-Ingham Community Health Authority. I have always worked to see that our residents get the best possible services for their tax dollars. I want everyone that has no employer sponsored health coverage to receive necessary services from our health department and dental clinic. The Eaton County Medical Care Facility has increased its capacity by 42 beds so that families will not have to travel outside their county in order to visit a loved one.

The facility recently opened its Healing and Recovery Center, as well. What are the three most important issues facing the county and how would you address them? It is important to me to continue to provide high quality services to Eaton County residents, knowing that costs are rising and revenues are decreasing due to the losses in property values. Also important is providing prevention services for juveniles and to keep these students in school and help them to get a good education. Finally, preventative health care services to eligible families are important. Eaton County is building a dental clinic and applying for federally qualified health care status to enhance its services. What county services do you consider vital and least eligible for cuts? Basic services such as good roads, parks, public safety and our 911 system, and health care services, are all vital services and are the least eligible for cuts.

I have extensive background in budgets for Ingham County as well as experience in budgets during my city of Lansing career. I am a strong fiscal conservative and always look for ways to cut expenses or to save the taxpayers’ money. I understand the issues unique to rural and suburban Ingham County and represent those issues in board deliberations. I have come to know the concerns of my district over the

past six years through frequent involvement in every township I represent. I am involved in many aspects of community service. What are the three most important issues facing the county and how would you address them? 1) Maintaining law enforcement services throughout the county and making other cuts to the county budget to preserve those in any way possible. 2) Balancing a budget without increasing taxes or spending down reserves, asking county departments to consolidate and reorganize to preserve critical functions and asking for partnerships with county unions to achieve meaningful savings. 3) Economic development, particularly in the new economy sectors, to maintain Ingham County as a great place to live and work. This requires support to those in job outreach and recruitment and partnerships with other governmental units, Michigan State University and major business interests. What county services do you consider vital and least eligible for cuts? Public safety should always be a priority of any government, through law enforcement, prosecution and courts. Services which leverage federal and state dollars, such as those in the health department, should be maintained as much as possible. Innovations in technology should be used in order to achieve maximum efficiencies with reduced staff levels. It is critical that the county board work with the Legislature to improve funding for local roads, even though the administration of that budget is through the Road Commission board.

others may disagree. A new voice yet with solid life experience in dealing with the public as an employee and as employer. A voice that sees a union position yet fully understands also the problems of small business. After attending over 60 county meetings the past 18 months I have some understanding of the problems commissioners must address yet also see some problems with the commission. Possibly one with a new viewpoint may help add some sanity to what many see as government no longer serving the people and no longer in fear of the electorate. It’s time to give a hand up to those when needed and not create endless handouts. What are the three most important issues facing the county and how would you address them? County public safety, court system, and roads. As we watched the problems in Haiti unfold, who came first? Public safety, then road builders to get food and heath care. Try it in reverse, this is not rocket science. When economic activity is down, crime rises. Next we send people to court with a ticket in that there is not enough jail space. Do they show, how often, who chases these folks down. Now get them on a docket if you have less of a court system you have less people and Judges to move the system to a proper end in what we call Justice. Roads, if I need address this in detail then you do not live in Ingham County. Please, let’s stop blaming

the state. It’s their job to then blame Washington. Think it over citizens. D.C. is out of money, who do they blame? Sorry, I do not have the solutions so I can make no widespread promises. We do need new ideas. One may be more of you reading this should get to a few meetings each year at the county, township, or school board level and see what you can do. What county services do you consider vital and least eligible for cuts? “Least eligible for cuts” is a loaded question. All areas are on the table. Public safety is first to protect. However, does that mean all other areas slash away? No, realize service and peoples lives as employees and those needing services are critical to balance. Priorities are important and to what extent is each service to be offered and to what level?

Holt to seek tennis respect By SEAN MERRIMAN

HOLT — Holt’s tennis team has had a busy couple of days over the past week. The Rams had a solid showing at Thursday, Sept. 30 CAAC Blue championships, finishing third out of six teams. They edged out Jackson by one point in the finals, and Jackson had beaten Holt in their regular season matchup. East Lansing placed first at the event and Okemos took second. Holt’s lone title came at No. 4 singles. Josh Green earned a 6-4, 6-2 win over Okemos’ Brandon Baird. The two had met earlier in the year, but Green had to concede because he was too sick to finish the match. It’s Green’s only loss of the year.

“It says a lot to be able to come back and prove myself in such a competitive conference,” Green said. “It’s a great way to close out my last high school league match.” The Rams were back in action Tuesday as they played to a 4-4 tie against Haslett in a CAAC crossover match. Zach Smith was impressive at No. 1 singles, earning a 6-2, 7-5 victory over Haslett’s Aaron Laatsch. With the victory, Smith improved to 14-10 on the year.
