Students get ‘big’ history lesson on state By WILL KANGAS

HOLT — As far as history lessons go, this was a big one indeed. Third graders from Wilcox Elementary School took part in Michigan’s Big Histo-

ry Lesson last week. This was no ordinary field trip. Students are set up in their own class room at the Michigan Historical Museum and stay for an entire week during normal school hours.

Everyday students explore something new in the large museum and write about what they find in their journals. For Wilcox third graders on Nov. 29, the students learned about immigration with a hands on exhibit and

Twp. lights tree, Santa visits By WILL KANGAS

DELHI TWP. – With a roar of approval from the crowd, Santa Claus stopped by for a visit with Delhi Township residents Dec. 1. The reason for the visit was the township’s annual tree lighting ceremony, which included a full parking lot of people — it was undetermined if they were on the “naughty” or “nice” list. They were, however, bundled up as the season’s first legitimate snowfall came down and added a nice touch to the festivities. Members of the Holt High School Choir led the crowd with Christmas songs along with members of the Holt High School band. Township Supervisor Stuart Goodrich was the emcee of the event, and introduced the two students picked to

Fourth graders Zach Cripe of Sycamore Elementary and Cameron Maysonet of Midway were given the honor. When asked how they were chosen, they replied “Because we were good.” “The students were thrilled,” Goodrich said. “What a great evening.” Goodrich, who has been

supervisor since 2001, said he was informed the job “Master of Ceremonies” is in his job description. “I was told this year that I had no choice but to do it because it is in my official job description,” Goodrich said. “But I would have done it anyway.” After the tree was lit Santa Clause came via firetruck See Tree/page 19

lesson. After a introductory film, the students are lined up and given passports of actual Michigan Immigrants. They are then sent in to a receiving area, like Ellis Island, and must try to become an immigrant. The students are “tested” by doctors (some had a questionable rash) learn about what job they will get

and carry their baggage with them. “I am a dentist and have three children,” one student said proudly as his passport was stamped for approval to become a citizen of the United States. From there students learned that living at the turn of the century in Michigan wasn’t easy. An exhibit about mining

in the state’s Upper Peninsula demonstrated the working conditions and the danger around them. Students listened wideeyed as the story of one mine that collapsed under the weight of a lake took 51 lives. The “BIG” History Lesson began at the Michigan Historical Museum years ago and received a 2000 Certificate of Commendation from the American Association for State and Local History., according to the state’s web site. The week’s lessons are correlated with state standards, and assessment tools are used throughout the experience. Cost for the one-week lesson in the 2010-2011 school year is $250. To prepare, teachers participate in a “BIG” History Lesson planning and professional development workshop, where they learn about the museum and its resources. The workshop emphasizes object-based learning, thematic study and the use of community resources as teaching and learning tools.

EAST LANSING, MI | Some things in life have easy solutions. Hungry? Eat. Tired? Sleep. Bored? Gosh, who could be bored?! Lose something? …Now that can be tougher. Any kind of loss can cause frustration, or regret, or pain. But some types of loss impact our lives profoundly--like the loss of a loved one, the loss of your health, or the loss of one of your senses-your hearing, for instance. With the holiday season approaching, why not do something about that loss? Consider it a holiday gift to yourself. Imagine hearing your children, grandchildren, or great grandchildren without constantly asking them to repeat something. Think about hearing the sounds of the holidays again—the oven timer when the cookies or turkey are done, the carolers at the door, TV specials, and don’t forget the wonderful sounds of holiday music! 2<9 :57G =F& <95E=A; ?BFF 75A 69 8=:,7H?G to face.

When your student asks for canned goods for his classroom collection, please give whatever you can to insure that no one in our community goes hungry. Elliott Elementary School secretary Judy Lenon, volunteer Denny Walsh, counselor Terri Peters, and school principal Steve Netzel helped deliver food baskets to the classrooms for the Holiday Food Drive.

New Holt McDonald’s breaks company record HOLT — Michigan’s newest McDonald’s officially opened for business in Holt recently, setting a new McDonald’s Corporation standard across the United States. The new restaurant, located at 2400 N. Cedar St. in Holt, opened for business on Nov. 3, just 51 days after ground was broken, eclipsing McDonald’s Corporation mark for restaurant construction and completion by 8 days. The new facility replaces the McDonald’s restaurant that had stood on that site since the mid 1970s. “I’m excited to give our customers a brand new restaurant. Over the years we have developed a strong customer base who have proven our viability here and we wanted to reward them by giving them a state-of-the-art restaurant that offers fast service and quality food,” said Mike Dickerson, owner/operator of the Holt McDonald’s. The new restaurant features a double-drive through and a contemporary interior that offers seating for 72 customers, flat screen televisions and a unique bubble wall that has already drawn huge customer interest. The new restaurant added about 10 new jobs, employing a total of about 70.

Holt Senior Amanda Johnson will be looked upon to lead the girls basketball team in 2010-11. Holt lost to DeWitt in the first game of the season. season. “I want to lead through example and be the one to help motivate every player on our team to always get better,” Johnson said. “We have a lot of talent on this team, and this has the

chance to be a really successful year for us.” When asked about the possibility of making it back to the regional finals and facing another rematch against area-foe East Lansing, Johnson responded:

“Our goal is to always focus on the game ahead, but yeah, we have definitely discussed it quite a bit leading up to this season. “Now it’s my job to push the team to get beyond that point.”

December 5, 2010

A scene from Mandy Johnson’s high school basketball career: Last year. Regional semifinal game. Holt taking on girl’s basketball powerhouse Grand Rapids Christian. Under five minutes left in the game. Johnson steals an inbounds pass, dribbles the length of the court and makes a lay-up while getting fouled, giving her team a five-point lead. She sinks her free throw and the Rams go on to win and advance to their third consecutive regional championship. Another scene from Mandy Johnson’s high school basketball career: Two days later. Regional championship. The Rams fall 61-43 to No. 1 ranked East Lansing, marking the third consecutive year that the Trojans had knocked Holt out of the state tournament. “It was hard for all of us because it took so much to get there and then it just all came to an end,” Johnson remembers. “We worked so hard to get to that point.” Now, with the past behind her and her senior season approaching, Johnson will take on an unfamiliar role this winter: being a team captain. Being on the varsity team since her sophomore season, Johnson has had the opportunity to play behind a number of talented seniors including all-area selections Jasmine Woods in 2008 and Jessica Peatross in 2009. While she helped lead the Rams to two of those three straight district titles with her play on the court, Johnson often took a back seat from a leadership standpoint and let the seniors do the talking. “When you have six or seven seniors on the team like we have in the past, it can be hard to be the authority. You don’t want to hear someone younger than

you telling you what to do or where to go,” Johnson said. “But now, it’s great to know that I have that kind of power to help influence and motivate my team. “Being a senior captain, I want my teammates to know that I have worked as hard as I can in order to get here.” That hard work became more then evident this past summer as Johnson dedicated herself to improving her game in every possible aspect. Once the spring soccer season wrapped up, she started attending open gym practices and then began her AAU summer basketball season, playing for MGBR Elite. The team traveled across the state, competing against top-end competition every weekend for two months straight. “For that two month period of July and August, my life was pretty much just basketball,” Johnson said. Johnson’s ultimate reward came in mid-August when she accepted a basketball scholarship offer from Western Michigan University. Despite averaging 12.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and setting a school record with 83 steals last season while being named a Class A AllArea selection, Holt coach Doug Harkema believes that Johnson’s game has come a long way from where it was last year to where it is now heading into her senior season. “She’s just a phenomenal athlete, and when you combine that with her will to win, you’re looking at a big time player,” Harkema said of Johnson. “She’s got that physical ability that you just can’t teach. “What’s really scary is that her best basketball is still probably two or three years ahead of her.” But more important then being the Rams best player out on the court, Johnson wants to make sure that she is her teams best leader this

HOLT — Maci Sump began competing at the sport of gymnastics when she was just eight years old. Now, 10 years later, Sump’s hard work and dedication has paid off in the ultimate way. Sump, who is in her senior year at Holt High School, recently signed a national letter of intent to attend West Virginia University on a gymnastics scholarship. She was also offered scholarships from Western Michigan and Southern Utah, but ultimately felt like West Virginia was the right place for her. “I loved the coaches, the team, and the whole atmosphere,” Sump said of West Virginia. “But, my education is what really led me to my decision.” Sump plans to study special education while at West Virginia. She will go into a five-year program, which will allow her to receive both her bachelors and masters degree in her desired field. When Sump isn’t in the classroom, she is competing for Geddert’s Twistars USA Gymnastics Club, which is one of the most prestigious gymnastics clubs in the country. While competing for Twistars, Sump has accomplished being a two-time Level 10 National, Regional and State Qualifier. She is also a two-time Level 9 and 8 National, Regional and State Qualifier. The Levels are determined by overall skill, and Sump has been competing at level 10 for nearly three years now.

Holt’s Maci Sump recently signed with West Virginia University. Last year, Sump qualified for the Junior Olympic Nationals in Texas, where she placed 19th out of 51 girls at the competition. She said that signing her letter on intent and making that commitment to play the sport, which she loves so much at the collegiate level, was an experience that she will never forget. “When you commit to college, it almost doesn’t seem real,” Sump said. “But once I signed that letter, it was shocking and overwhelming at the same time. It made me feel just like my childhood dream had come true.”
