Fuller Field tops in ‘10 By CHRISTIE BLECK cbleck@lsj.com

ALAIEDON TWP. — Students at Alaiedon Elementary School have a tangible — and emotional — link with soldiers serving overseas. Near the front of the building is a special case displaying military items, including a flag flown over a U.S. base in the Parwan Province in Afghanistan last Sept. 11. One of those soldiers stationed there is Allison Stein, a task force peacekeeper whose son, Drew Gibbs, is a second-grader at Alaiedon (and who, coincidentally, was born Sept. 11, 2002). The flag is a link and a reminder to students that loved ones around the world are keeping the country safe.

“I think kids recognize these are students, these are classmates, whose parents are very far away,” Principal Lisa Francisco said. “They can’t visit weekends.” Monica Tarrant, an Alaiedon parapro, also is Drew’s guardian. She helps the two keep in touch. “We Skype once a week, as much as we can,” Tarrant said. In fact, other grade schoolers are keeping in touch as well. Tarrant said second-graders recently created cards that were to be sent to Stein. Francisco said fourth-graders also sent letters to Ron Ziehmer, husband of kindergarten teacher Danielle Ziehmer. Ron, a warrant officer 1, is stationed with the Army National Guard in Iraq. (Stein also is with the National Guard.)

DANSVILLE — It took eight years and $600,000 for volunteers to build Dansville High School’s Fuller Field. But those efforts have paid off with major recognition. The Michigan Sports Turf Manager Association has named Fuller Field its Athletic Field of the Year. The facility topped fields from all over the state in all divisions for the honor. “Eight years to get a project done?” said Matt Anderson, an MSU graduate student on hand at the Feb. 16 award ceremony at the Hancock Turf Research Center on campus. “Holy smokes.” However, there was a reason for the project’s duration. For years, the Class C school had one athletic field shared by football, soccer and other activities that was laid out east and west, forcing teams to look into the sun during the start of many games. Also, the high school had a track team but no track for practice or meets, and athletes had to use the town streets and school hallways. “All track meets were away meets,” said Mark Collins of C-More Green, a Dansville company that maintains athletic fields for several school districts.

er, made a commitment to build a $600,000 project for a community-oriented multipurpose facility. With no school funding available at the time, volunteers would schedule work days and come with their tractors, shovels and other tools to construct the facility. The field, which seats 1,100 people, was completed in 2007. It includes a football field, track and field area, press box, ticket booths, concessions, locker rooms, landscaping, fencing and a parking lot. Fuller Field, appraised at $1.9 million after its completion, also is open to the community. The field is a native, sandy loam soil field seeded with an 80:30 bluegrass/ ryegrass mix, fertilized with four pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet that’s seedField of dreams ed every fall. Doug BeVier, In 1999, the Dansville the school’s building and Athletic Boosters, headed grounds supervisor, mows by Chris and Nanette Full- and paints the field.

Collins noted there are pros and cons regarding building such facilities through donations. Pros include not dipping into school funds and building a facility under “community ownership.” Cons include keeping up volunteer motivation, making sure what is donated is used and the length of time needed to finish the project. For example, Collins said that using volunteers with no general contractor was a challenge. “Sometimes that’s a little bit hard to control,” he said. However, the challenges likely were worth it, considering the outcome: a firstrate community facility and state recognition. Dansville Public Schools Athletic Director Nancy Jungkans took note of the volunteers’ part in the honor. “I’m sure they’ll be as honored about this award as we are,” Jungkans said.

Have you tried an eReader yet? Although printed books will never fall completely by the wayside, digital books (or “eBooks”) are staking a claim on the future of reading. If you don’t believe me, consider this: More than six million eReaders were sold in 2010. By 2013, that number is predicted to be upwards of 15 million. So what is all the fuss about? Simply put, an eReader allows you to download digital books directly to an electronic, hand-held device like an Amazon Kindle or Barnes & Noble Nook, using

After many years in this business, we’re still surprised when asked, “How do you manage to continue to publish a newspaper without selling it on a subscription basis?” The answer is simple. Fact is, most of us are accustomed to the traditional daily newspaper that we pay to receive at our home or business. Lansing Community Newspapers exists on an entirely different – although not uncommon – business model. We distribute this newspa- From the per to nearly every home in editor this area at no charge. We subsist almost exclu- Kurt Madden sively on revenue generated through advertising sales. Our broad delivery allows us to reach a larger audience than subscription newspapers. And our news is distinctly local; in fact, the majority of the news in this newspaper is submitted by readers like you. Simply put, lots of folks read the paper because it is relevant to their lives. It’s been a successful business model, and it makes this newspaper and its 11 sister newspapers in the Lansing area a good example of how to operate free weekly newspapers. That doesn’t change the fact that publishing a newspaper today costs more than ever. Our two largest expenses are the printing and distribution of this newspaper. As we have in the past, we are promoting our voluntary pay program. This column is an effort to explain what this program is, and isn’t. The voluntary pay program allows you and other

readers to make a contribution of $13 for 26 weeks or $26 for 52 weeks, and if you choose, tip your carrier an additional amount. The amount equates to 50 cents per issue. An envelope explaining the program is inserted in this issue. We won’t gloss over two key issues: • Yes, the money raised through the program makes a difference, assists us in keeping advertising costs lower and makes it easier to continue to operate the paper at an acceptable profit. • This program is voluntary. If you enjoy the newspaper, or a component of the newspaper, and if you experience good, consistent delivery of the newspaper, we hope you participate. However, if you have delivery problems, or for any other reason are unhappy with the newspaper, we ask you to do two things.

First, don’t participate in the program. Second, call us and give us a chance to solve your delivery problem or gain an understanding of what kind of local information would interest you Finally, understand that delivery of this newspaper to you is not contingent on this program. You will continue to receive your newspaper regardless of whether you choose to participate in this program. Thank you for your continued support of this newspaper. We are successful because of the support of you, our readers and advertisers. If you have any questions, or concerns regarding the voluntary pay program, please call 1-866-226-1812.

Letter to the editor The Mason City Council at a regular meeting was trying to decide if they wanted to lease Rayner Park from Ingham County. Lots of people were there. I said if maintenance cost was an issue, I would volunteer eight hours a month. I then said: Nineteen more people like me and you get a fulltime employee. They voted to lease it, and I put my name on every list I heard about. Someone planned three events; I could not make the first but did attend the second. Grandkids Ashley, Anthony, James Caleb and Payge came with me.

When we got to the park, the only people there were inmates with a guard. They had started moving wood chips in the play ground area. I went to the guard and asked if he could find them something else to do as my grandkids could move wood chips. He agreed and they went down the road to trim brush. The kids and I worked about an hour or so before someone else showed up. The kids did a great job and were not deterred by working on this big project with little to no help. They were an inspiration. At a meeting with three city officials, I voiced my thoughts, after which they asked me to coordinate activi-

ties. I declined the titles they wanted to give but did take on the job. I figured that I would show up and work even if no one else did. If my grandkids could do that so could I. I did wrap on a few souls, wrote some letters to the editor, talked with friends and made some phone calls. People responded beyond my expectations. An award I received on Feb. 7, a joint tribute of recognition for my work witih Raynor Park that was given by the Mason City Council and Board of Education, goes to my grandkids and the people of Mason.

Mason police report

Ingham County Community News

10 Between Feb. 8-14, Mason police investigated 33 reported incidents involving a variety of activities. These are some of those incidents. Officers render aid Feb. 8: Late in the evening, officers responded to check the welfare of a female at a restaurant on Cedar Street. She was asleep in a booth and had been there for over three hours. Since the business was closing, she couldn’t stay there any longer. Investigation revealed the female was homeless and had no resources. She did have warrants out of Detroit, but was out of the pick-up range. Due to the extremely cold temperature outside, the officers worked at finding her a place to stay for the night and were finally able to make arrangements, after which they drove her to her lodging making sure she got there. Feb. 9: Very early in the morning, an officer was dispatched to a residential facility on Kerns Road for a voluntarily missing person report. At the time of the call it was 10 degrees, with a wind chill of -5 degrees, so the officer requested the assistance of a K-9. Lansing Police Department sent its K-9 to assist and they attempted to conduct a track. After about 30 minutes, the dog could not find the track and was going in circles, so the physical search was called off. The missing person was put in the law enforcement system, and officers tried finding her by other means. Later in the day, the missing female’s caseworker was able to reach her by phone, but the female — who stated she was OK — would not give her location. Her whereabouts are still unknown. Feb. 9: Officers again were dispatched to a local business on Cedar Street to do a wel-

fare check. The business’s manager stated a female had been standing in the parking lot for a long time, and she was concerned for her welfare due to the cold. At a business next door, the officers found the same homeless female who had been helped out by other officers the previous day. When approached, the female advised she had made arrangements to be picked up by CATA Rural services later. The officers verified this information. The business owner ended up helping the female financially to assist her on her journey. No fairy tale Feb. 9: Officers responded to a Mason residence to take a harassment complaint. The complainant states she and her ex-husband share custody of their children and that the ex’s girlfriend had once been removed from the ex’s home because of her treatment of the children and investigation by Child Protective Services. However, the girlfriend was once more living there. The complainant gave a copy of a social network posting she found on the Internet in which the girlfriend allegedly commented on putting children in the oven (as in the fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel). The complainant was advised to re-contact the Protective Services caseworker and report the information and that a police report had been filed. The children remain in her custody. Feb. 10: While on patrol, an officer noticed two parked, running vehicles in a school parking lot. As it was just after 2 a.m., the officer found this suspicious and went to investigate. There were two females and a male in the occupied vehicle, and they advised they had just returned from a restaurant in Lansing and that one

of the females was warming up the vehicle she had left parked in the school lot. When checking their records, the officer noted that one female had a warrant for her arrest. The female stated she knew there was a warrant — and that she had been arrested on it prior to that time; however, the warrant was actually for a person who had stolen her ID. The officer verified this information was true. The male, who was the designated driver, had bloodshot eyes and smelled of intoxicants, but denied having been drinking. A blood-alcohol of .06 percent revealed otherwise, and the driver apologized for lying to the officer. The officer explained to him that he was not over the legal limit to drive, but that he could still be arrested if he was not able to handle the amount of alcohol that was in his system. He was advised to stop and have a cup of coffee before driving to his destination. The three subjects left without further incident. ‘Dog-food’ run goes bad Feb. 13: An officer attempted to pull a vehicle over on Kipp Road for an equipment violation, but the driver refused to stop despite the fact that the officer had activated the squad car’s emergency lights and siren. The driver finally pulled into a driveway outside the city and got out of his vehicle. The officer ordered him back inside it and waited for backup. When the second officer arrived, the suspect was ordered out of the vehicle and handcuffed. Investigation revealed he had a suspended driver’s license and fireworks in his car. The suspect stated he had gone into town to buy dog food, that the vehicle belonged to his girlfriend and he didn’t want to get it impounded; thus, the reason he “ran.” He was

arrested and lodged in the Ingham County Jail and the vehicle was impounded. The case was submitted to the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office, after which they authorized a warrant for fleeing and eluding-fourth, driving while license suspended-second and possession of illegal fireworks. Feb. 13: An officer responded to a business on Hull Road for a shoplifting complaint. The complainant stated he had observed the suspect pull several of the store’s own bags out of her pocket and place items from her shopping cart into them — then try to leave the building without paying for the items. The suspect, who had attempted to steal over $200 worth of clothing and other merchandise, told the officer she had bagged up the merchandise, intent on stealing it. Further investigation revealed she had a history of trying to steal from the business twice before. She was placed under arrest for retail fraud-second and transported to the Ingham County Jail, where she was lodged. Feb. 13: An officer stopped a driver on northbound U.S. 127 for erratic driving. Investigation revealed no record on the female driver, but the female passenger, who smelled strongly of intoxicants, was on probation out of the 12th District Court in Jackson. She admitted to having consumed a large amount of intoxicants and having an alcohol problem after submitting to a preliminary breath test that resulted in a 0.28 percent blood-alcohol content. The driver was cited for having no proof of insurance, and the report was to be sent to Jackson police. Continued on page 12

Marital marijuana? Feb. 13: An officer made a traffic stop on Cedar Street near Cedar Woods for an equipment violation. When initially speaking with the two male occupants, the officer noted their eyes were red and glassy in appearance. They claimed this was because they were emotional over the marital problems the driver’s parents were having — that they were cousins, and that the one was there to give the other moral support. On the officer’s second contact with them, they had decided they were not cousins after all, but they were very nervous. When the driver was getting out of the vehicle at the officer’s request, the officer observed the passenger toss something out the window, which turned out to be a pack of rolling papers. Both males then admitted to having smoked marijuana that evening, but neither held a medical marijuana card. Marijuana was located in the vehicle, and the driver was arrested on the marijuana possession charge and lodged in the Ingham County Jail. He was cited for the defective equipment violation. The passenger was turned over to his mother after she was called to pick him up along with his ci-

tation for marijuana use. The vehicle was impounded. Feb. 14: An officer was dispatched to a Mason restaurant for a threats complaint. The business was not open yet, but there was an individual in the lot who was making threats from his cell phone. The male suspect was very belligerent with the officer when approached, and began yelling at her, as well as at someone on his cell phone. He stated he had just gotten out of jail and wanted to speak to his girlfriend who worked there. Because of the suspect’s behavior, the officer requested back-up, and officers from the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office responded. When the suspect was more compliant, the officer went to speak with the girlfriend. The girlfriend stated she and the suspect were in a dating relationship and that he thought she’d been cheating on him, so he was threatening to beat up the supposed other party. She was advised on how to seek a personal protection order against him although she stated he had not threatened her. The officer also spoke with the business manager and advised him — if it was deemed appropriate — that the corporate offices could send the suspect a “no tres-

passing” warning letter. The manager did inform the suspect — in the officers’ presence — that he was no longer welcome there. The suspect stated he understood and would not return, and he was allowed to wait there for a ride from his mother. Feb. 14: An officer took a walk-in complaint from a resident who wanted to report a suspicious situation involving her stepdaughter. She stated that the stepdaughter’s ex-boyfriend had shown up at a friend’s house with a gun, looking for the stepdaughter, but that the friend’s husband had forced him out, causing the gun to be left behind. Since then she had not been able to make contact with the stepdaughter. When the officer went to speak with the friend, he was told basically the same thing from her, except that the gun was a pellet gun. Later in the day, the friend advised the officer that the stepdaughter had called and she was fine and safe. A short time afterward, the stepdaughter and the suspect showed up at the MPD together with a different story than had been told previously. When called back again, the friend and her husband recanted part of their original story, advising the suspect had not brought the gun with him, but was actually picking it up from the house — he had not forced

his way into the residence as previously described. The conclusion of this complaint was that the stepdaughter was safe and not missing; she was seeing the ex again, against her family’s wishes; and there had been no weapon threat or home invasion as had first been reported.

MASON — Heartwood School’s Garden/Nature Club was recently awarded a $220 grant from the Capital Region Community Foundation’s Youth Action Committee. The check was presented to the students at Heartwood by Pauline Pasch, program officer/Youth Action Committee (YAC) advisor and two Mason High School Students on Jan.26. “We are very thankful to the foundation and the Youth Action Committee for choosing our grant this year,” ssaid Cheryl Meyer, certified occupational therapy assistant at

Heartwood. “The grant had to be written by our students, so our staff worked with them to get an idea for the grant, to answer questions and to write it in their words. We are so pleased that their work was rewarded.” Grants from the YAC are awarded to encourage young people to create meaningful short-term projects that promote environmental awareness and protection and that bring children in contact with wilderness areas, gardens and nature. The Heartwood club titled its grant “Recycling Rain and Weeds.” The money will be used to purchase a rain barrel and tumble composter. “Heartwood’s garden project is an exciting example

of the many types of activities our Youth Action Committee strives to support through mini-grants for the environment,” said Pauline Pasch, Capital Region Community Foundation program officer and YAC advisor. “This project will offer a great learning experience for the students as well as help improve the environment for the school.” For more information about Heartwood School or its programs and services, go to http://inghamisd.org. Heartwood School is available for all students in the Ingham ISD service area with physical and cognitive special needs. — From the Ingham Intermediate School District

Mason beat South Lyon 60-15 but lost to Tecumseh 40-28 in the final. Junior tri-captian Adam Robinson said after the meet, “ We had a very good season. Our team worked very hard and accomplished many of our goals. We just fell a little short here at regionals.”

Heartwood to take the plunge MASON — A team of supporters from Heartwood School will be participating in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge on Saturday, Feb. 27 to raise money for Special Olympics. The event will be held at Eagle Eye Golf Club at noon. The Heartwood team is made up of staff, family members and Mason High School student supporters. After raising funds, participants dress in costumes and prepare to plunge into freezing cold water for a good cause. Proceeds from these plunges help support year-round sports training and athletic competition for more than 18,600 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Michigan. A total of 24 Polar Plunges are taking place throughout Michigan in January, Feb-

ruary and March. “This event is really fun and is a great bonding experience for all those involved,” said Marcia O’Brien, principal at Heartwood School and participant in the Polar Plunge. “The Special Olympics is something near and dear to our hearts here at Heartwood, and we try to support it as much as we can.” Those interested in supporting the efforts of the Heartwood Team can make a donation online at www.firstgiving.com/ lansing-polar-plunge-2011-175923. All donations to the Special Olympics are tax-deductible. For more information about Heartwood School, go online at http://inghamisd.org/ heartwood/index.html. — From the Ingham Intermediate School District
