Elections now ‘even’


MASON — Mason Public Schools has made the switch from holding its regular November school board elections to even years. According to Superintendent Mark Dillingham, as of last December, the Michigan Election Law, as signed by former Gov. Jennifer Granholm, allows school districts that hold their regular elections in odd years only to change to even-year elections. Dillingham said it’s cheaper to hold elections that coincide with a general election. “If we didn’t make the switch,, it would have cost us approximately $19,000 to conduct a stand-alone election in 2011,” he said. Two of the four open seats for the Mason Board of Education in the November 2012 election, Dillingham pointed out, will carry a four-year term. One seat will carry a six-year term and one will carry a fouryear term until the November 2016 election, when it becomes a six-year term. Two of the three open board seats in the November 2014 election will carry a four-year term and one will carry a six-year term. The terms are staggeredso that no more than three seats would be up in any one year, Dillingham said. The exception is 2012 because of the change in the law allowing the district to switch to even-year elections. Leslie Public Schools holds annual elections.

Center now closed

Leslie recycling facility closes By CHRISTIE BLECK

LESLIE — The Leslie Recycling Center is no more. Earlier this month the City Council voted 7-0 to close the center, located downtown on Commercial/Carney Drive, next to the police station. The center had been in operation since 2005. City Manager Brian Reed said the center had become an eyesore and that the large amount of materials at the site had become a burden for the downtown.

The problems included iIllegal dumping of trash and dumping of materials that were not recyclable, Reed said. But the main problem was too many materials left on the ground — a source of many complaints over the past year or two, he said. “The bins filled up so quickly that nearly every day there were materials on the ground,” Reed said. “It had become an eyesore for our downtown, and we have trash and materials that had blown throughout the downtown, into residents’ yards and behind the center in the woods and into Huntoon Creek,” Reed said. Reed pointed out that the center still had many positives. “It was used profusely by residents of Leslie and many surrounding cities and townships,” he said. “It was very popuSee Recycle/page 2

LESLIE — The smell of fresh paint greets visitors walking up the stairs above 106 S. Main St. That’s because four new apartments have been completed under a grant from the

Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA). A Jan. 18 open house was the second event showcasing renovated downtown living spaces available through MSHDA grants. There now are five renovated apartments in town. Building owner Bob Howe undertook the latest See

Jan. 11: An officer was dispatched to a Mason home on a suspicious person call. The complainant reported her teenage son had come home from a walk and told her that a woman driving a vehicle had stopped at the intersection of Maple and Rogers and yelled from her car, “Hey, are you a virgin?” The car then drove off heading north on Rogers. The complainant stated her son described the car as a gray Pontiac G6 occupied by two black females. The suspect driver was described as in her 40s, with her hair up in a bun. No description of the passenger was given. Jan. 12: An officer was dispatched to Kerns Road to check the welfare of a woman who had been dropped off in front of a residential facility, thinking it was a homeless shelter. The woman reported needing a place to stay because she was homeless, her foot hurt and she wanted medical attention. Medical help was summoned, and the woman was taken to an area medical facility for treatment. Jan. 12: An officer received a late larceny complaint that had occurred on West Columbia Street. The victim reported ordering a package that she later learned was delivered and left for her on her porch, but she never found it. She suspected an estranged boyfriend may have taken it, but had no evidence of such. The suspected theft occurred in November, and there are no leads. Jan. 12: An officer stopped a car with an expired registration. When the driver was contacted, he was talking on the phone with his girlfriend and kept waving off the officer as the officer tried to ask questions. Finally, the driver

handed the phone to the officer, asking him to speak to his girlfriend, but the officer gave it back to him and proceeded with the investigation. It turned out the driver spoke poor English, had no valid driver’s license, was driving with an expired registration plate and had no insurance on the car. As the officer was concluding the investigation, the driver’s girlfriend showed up and assisted in translating for the officer. The driver was released with citations for driving without an operator’s license, expired registration plates and driving without insurance. The car was impounded and towed from the scene.

Cashing out

Jan. 14: A Mason business owner called to report embezzlement by a former employee who no longer worked for the company. The victim stated he earns points from his charge card that are applied as cash credit to his account. After auditing the account he had discovered the cash rebates had been spent by the employee by using the card for her own use. This is the second embezzlement complaint by the victim evolving the same suspect, and the investigation continues. Jan. 15: An officer was crossing town on U.S. Highway 127, traveling behind a pickup truck, when the truck made an abrupt exit at Kipp Road. The officer followed, soon noticing the condition of the rear plate, which was subsequently found to be improper and not belonging on the vehicle to which it was attached. Contact with the driver — who stated he was coming from Kalamazoo and going to Grand Rapids — found he was wanted on felony drug charges out of Grand Rapids. Additional investigation found evidence of drugs in the car, and during booking at the Ingham County Jail, the suspect removed a wad of bundled cash from its place of concealment inside the crotch of his underwear and turned it over to officers. A subsequent K-9 check for drugs on the cash was positive, and the cash was seized under the drug forfeiture statute. The

suspect was lodged awaiting transport back to Grand Rapids, and the car was impounded, but not seized for forfeiture. Jan. 15: Officers were dispatched to a suspicious vehicle complaint at a local restaurant because a vehicle with two unknown occupants was parked outside after closing. Officers found the car and discovered the pair were availing themselves of the free Wi-Fi service provided by the business. Jan. 15: An officer responded to a multi-unit lodging facility for a resident creating a disturbance and bothering other residents. The officer found the suspect and soon determined he was intoxicated. The man was cooperative and agreed to quiet down. His companion, however, was discovered to be wanted by Maso police for an outstanding drunk driving warrant, was arrested, taken to the Ingham County Jail and lodged.

Disturbance, the Sequel

Jan. 16: Officers were called back to the multi-unit residential lodging business for the same person who was once again intoxicated and causing problems. This time the proprietor ordered him out, and the matter was closed, until later in the morning when officers were called back two more times. The first time, the suspect couldn’t be found, but the second time, he was — and he was arrested for trespassing on the property and then lodged in the Ingham County Jail. Jan. 17: Officers responded to a Mason residence where the residents — the victim and suspect — explained they had an argument over the victim’s family member, who resides with them and will not find a job. The couple reported the argument became violent when the suspect threw the television remote at the victim, then slapped her face with an open hand. The suspect was arrested for domestic assault and lodged in the Ingham County Jail. — From Chief John Stressman

sioner Don Vickers (District 16) said he used the recycling center. “I hated to see it close,” Vickers said. However, Vickers acknowledged that on weekends when containers were overflowing, trash had been left on the ground, creating problems for city employees. Vickers, who expresed concern that people might

stop saving items to be recycled, said he and a few other citizens are discussing possible solutions. Reed also said the city will continue to analyze alternatives in the future.

project, in which the entire second story was gutted to construct four apartments above JPRC Physical Therapy.

Program funded through MSHDA

The city received $256,000 from MSHDA in 2009 to build affordable downtown housing. The program’s focus is to renovate upper-level apartments in currently unused space. MSHDA will grant up to $35,000 per unit, with the owner contributing 25 percent in matching funds and covering anything above and beyond that amount. “For businesses, we have more people living downtown, and that will generate more activity,” City Manag-

er Brian Reed said in a prepared statement. Reed also said the program generates tax revenue for the city and rent revenue for the building owner. Another plus, Reed said, is that the program takes unused space and turns it into affordable housing. Howe said that until several years ago a Masonic lodge occupied the space where the new apartments are located. He, too, is a program supporter. “It wouldn’t be possible without the MSHDA grant,” Howe said. “It’s not economically feasible for somebody to put this kind of money in this and make it work.” Howe said the one-bedroom apartments will rent for $610 per month, which includes heat, electricity and garbage pick-up.

Bruce Johnston, executive director of the Ingham County Housing Commission (ICHC), noted the amenities in the new downtown apartments, including the wood floors. “Everyone loves the hardwood look,” Johnston said, “and carpet is very expensive to replace as a landlord.” Each apartment comes with a washer and dryer, as well as a no-tank water heater. Johnston said. The “on-demand hot-water system,” saves energy, he said. Two apartments have balconies, Johnson said, while one has a fireplace. For rental information, contact Howe (517) 927-5028 or the ICHC at (517) 244-7170.

Christie’s chronicles Christie Bleck

home repairs as I can without resorting to asking the neighbor across the street (who happens to be an airplane mechanic, so you know he’s good at this kind of stuff) or leaving an item unfixed. Often it’s the latter. My garbage disposal hasn’t been working for months, so carrot scrapings and the like have been going directly into the trash (which, I’m proud to say, I take out on a regular basis with help from no one).

with an indentation that’s a monument to my inability to fix it properly. However, a very nice significant other of mine who has the proper carpentry tools has offered to repair it. It really bothers me to be the “girlfriend” in this situation, but if I have a smooth table again, I’ll play the (hopefully temporary) part and consider making an investment in C-clamps.

Tool time

Speaking of tools, I do have a few on hand. I have several hammers, one of which is a — get ready for a sugar buzz — hammer with a pink flowered pattern. This effeminate tool

probably works as well as a similar hammer without the foo-foo design. In fact, I have a hammer almost like it that’s primarily a genderneutral silver in color. Both do the trick, but I’d prefer to be seen in public working with the metallic hammer than the one that looks like it was made for a giant Barbie doll. More pink: Several years ago at a Ducks Unlimited fundraising banquet I won a set of “girl tools.” These came enclosed is a pink case. Despite the color, they’ve come in handy on several occasions. A part of me wishes they were camo, though. I’m much better at gardening for some reason.

Were I living in Mason, I’d feel more comfortable with my expertise at the Victory Garden by the Ingham County Fairgrounds and the new Community Garden off Jefferson Street. I’m more adept at using a trowel and spade than a drill bit and Phillips screwdriver, so-called “man tools.” I’m proud of the northwest corner of my garage that holds my rake, snow shovel and spade. Again, a very gender-neutral scene. I wonder if I can chalk up this discrepancy in skills to sociological conditioning from the get-go. When I was a wee one, I loved going to hardware stores. I still do, but my trips are

My big bad

Recently I had the misfortune of standing on a side table I shouldn’t have stood on to hang up some artwork. Unbenownst to me, the top wasn’t a solid piece of wood; it was made of slats that the best I can figure were evenly glued side by side. Not anymore. ‘Helpless’ not in my I tried to reglue the broken slat back into place. I vocabulary — yet had the right idea but no In my continuing battle C-clamps, as I was told latagainst sissiness, I’ve been er, to hold the heavy slat in trying to handle as many place. The top is fixed but FREE ESTIMATES! We Work All Winter!

Sometimes I really hate being a “girl.” By that I mean fitting the stereotype of being a nail polish-wearing, gossip-magazine-reading and spider-spottingand-screaming female. I really fight against this. For one thing, I don’t wear nail polish because it’s one more beauty-maintenance item I’ll have to deal with, and sometimes simply combing my hair takes a lot out of me. Besides, as a youngster I had a hard time coloring inside the lines, and keeping polish within similar dimensions has to be nearly as difficult. Magazines? I try to limit my periodical perusings to Audubon, National Wildlife and Humpty Dumpty. Arachnids? I let spiders take up residence in my shower stall unless they’re too large and hairy, and then they get the boot to my rock garden, weather permitting, where they can live until they find their way back to my shower stall. It’s kind of like spider recycling.

Fortunately for Frederick, Allegiance Health vascular surgeons and their team were already at the hospital and able to perform an immediate life-saving repair.


Although prepared for conventional surgery, his surgeons were able to make the repair with a minimallyinvasive procedure, using two tiny incisions. Frederick was able to go home the next morning. “It was truly amazing,” he said. “I am very grateful.”

Mason gets third hoops win By SCOTT YOSHONIS

January 23, 2011

MASON — Mason gutted out their third girls basketball win of the season, and their second against once-andfuture league opponent Charlotte, in a 32-29 slugfest on Jan. 18. Kali Barry scored eight of her gamehigh 13 points in the second half to lead the Bulldogs to a record of 3-6, and what Mason head coach Scott Shattuck said was a huge victory for his program. “It was an important win for us,” Shattuck said. “We need to understand that we can compete, and getting this win is important for that.” The Orioles jumped out to a 10-1 lead in the first quarter, but the Bulldogs fought back from there, going on a 13-4 run beginning with the team’s first field goal of the game, a drive to the basket by Angie Cena with just 7 seconds left in the first quarter. The run continued in the second, with Mason finally tying the game 14-14 on a free throw by Elizabeth Staltzer with no time on the clock in the first half. Charlotte opened up a five-point lead halfway through the third quarter, but again the Bulldogs reeled them back in, scoring the last three field goals of the quarter, the last two putbacks by Barry, to take a 22-21 lead into the fourth. In contrast to the difficulty that both teams had scoring in the first three quarters, there was a relative flurry of four lead changes in the first 1:25 of the fourth, before Mason sophomore Gabby Trudell started a 6-0 run with a banked-in 12-footer and a tough bucket in the post. One of the assistant coaches on Charlotte’s bench was then penalized for allowing his frustration to get too vocal, giving the Bulldogs the ball back. Although Mason missed both free throws, Kaleigh Lound made some room down low for a layup that gave her team a

Scott Yoshonis

Mason’s Brooke Dippel (20) gets off a shot with a hand in her face in the Bulldogs’ 32-29 win over Charlotte on Jan. 18. 30-25 lead with 4:13 left in the game. Mason defense clamped down from there, allowing just one Charlotte field goal in the final seven minutes of play. Charlotte squandered their chances to come back by missing the front end of all three 1-and-1 opportunities in the final 1:30. Not that Mason was lighting the place up from the free-throw line themselves. After Dani McNeilly converted both ends of the Bulldogs’ first 1-and-1, they missed the last two in the final 27.3 seconds, but the damage was done, and the game ended 32-29. Raychel Wolever led the Orioles with 12 points. Shattuck said that, despite their de-

fensive victory, his team knows that it’s going to have to score more than 32 points to win most games. “I think our team understands the nature of competition,” he said. “We just have to finish a shot. In order to win the game and keep ourselves in the flow and the rhythm of the contest, we have to score points on a consistent basis. The girls are positive and coachable and they work hard in practice, so we’re optimistic that we can keep moving forward.” Mason will make two trips down Highway U.S. 127 for CAAC Red contests this week, to face Jackson Northwest on Tuesday, Jan. 25 and Jackson Lumen Christi on Friday, Jan. 28.

Donavan P. Riley

Mason Age 70, passed away January 17, at Sparrow Hospital, following a sudden illness. Born August 27, 1940, in Morgantown, West Virginia to Donovan and Dorothy Jane (Rogers) Riley, Don graduated from Washington Lee High School in Arlington, VA. Following his graduation in 1958, he joined the United States Army. During his time in the Army and the Army Reserves, he earned, among other accolades, the 1961 Individual Rifle Championship Award. Don then worked for the Federal Government and later as a Computer Programmer in what was then a fledgling industry. He proceeded to earn degrees from Miami Dade Community College and Florida International University, allowing him to begin his long career as an educator. After teaching in FL for three years, he moved to MI in l978. Don is fondly remembered for his 22 years teaching Earth Science in the Mason Middle School. During this time, he also earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Central Michigan University in 1985. His dedication to education allowed him to touch the lives of thousands of students over the years. "Mr. Riley" loved teaching, and brought enthusiasm and dedication into his classroom every day for more than two decades. After his retirement in 2000, he dedicated his time to many causes, foremost of which was the DALMAC Bicycle event. Over the course of 15 years Don went from riding in the event to being one of the organizers of the yearly crossstate ride. His tireless efforts in support of this event and the Tri-County Bicycle Association will be missed by all of those fortunate enough to have served with him. He is survived by Suzanne (Mills) Riley. They married in 1978 and have remained devoted to one another ever since. Other survivors include his two sisters Rebecca (Elmer) Purcell and Allene (Fritz) Kussin, both currently residing in Concord, MA. His nephews are Joshua and John Froehlich of New York City, and Dr. Charles Norman II, his wife Crescent, and their children Jacqueline and Charles III, of Owosso, MI. He was preceded in death by his parents, Donovan Riley and Jane Corkery, and his nephew Peter Froehlich. In addition, he is preceded by Richard and Clarice Mills, (his inlaws and dear friends), and their daughter Keitha (Mills) Norman. Funeral Services will be held 11:00 a.m. Monday, January 24, 2011 at First Presbyterian Church of Mason, 131 E. Maple Street, Mason, MI 48854 with the Rev. Bill Pinches and the Rev. Charlie Herrick officiating. Interment immediately following in Ridgelawn Cemetery, Breckenridge, MI. The family will receive friends at the Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes, 621 S.
