Census: Mason way up

MASON — The 2010 census produced good results for the city of Mason: a population increase of 15 percent in 10 years. The recent census showed Mason had 8,252 residents, up from 7,173 in 2000. City Administrator Marty Colburn mentioned a few reasons behind the big increase, including investments of industry, commercial developments and services from city staff. “The city services are maintained at a high quality and we are proactive to the changing needs,” Colburn said. Colburn listed Rayner Ponds, Summerwood, Coventry Woods, Riverwalk and the Green Acres assisted living community as examples of quality developments. Also, Colburn pointed out that through many discussions city staff has had with developments and residents,

In the ‘real world’


MASON — Sometimes kids have to get out of the classroom to learn real independence. That’s the purpose behind the CommunityBased Instruction (CBI) program at Mason High School. Students age 15 up to 26 learn traditional language skills in the classroom. However, they also learn how to vacuum a rug and use an oven. They too venture out into the community to get

a taste of the business world. After all, living independently at home and at work are important components of anyone’s life. So, it helps if the school district and the community help those with special needs who will be faced at some point with making it on their own. “Businesses have been kind enough to open up their doors to us,” said Ruth Tatara, a CBI paraprofessional who works with the students. However, they are based at Mason High School, with the program

funded by Mason Public Schools. “We’re in a class of our own,” Tatara said. Tatara helps in the classroom in a unique setting divided into two parts: the classroom and an “apartment.” The apartment section includes a washer and dryer, which gives students a hands-on way to learn how to clean their clothes. In the Home Living class, Tatara said, students learn how to cook using and oven and a stove and how to make a bed. See

LESLIE — Leslie Fire Chief Bruce Howe says five firefighters who fell through a roof while fighting a downtown building blaze on March 26 are lucky to be alive. The firefighters — among 10 firefighters injured Saturday during the fire at Moo’s Bar & Grill — were trapped in the burning building for roughly 30 minutes until a rescue team pulled them from the structure, officials said. “Thank God we didn’t have any fatalities out of that. It’s a blessing,” said Eric Weber, an engineer with the Lansing Fire Department,

which helped staff the 12-member rescue team sent to the scene. Nine of the 10 firefighters injured — as well as an apartment dweller — were released from Sparrow Hospital after treatment for minor injuries, including smoke inhalation, Howe said. A firefighter from the Onondaga Township Fire Department was admitted to the hospital for smoke inhalation, Howe said. The firefighter was reported in stable condition, he said. Other firefighters injured were from the Delhi Township, Leslie and Dansville/ Ingham Township fire deSee

CBI: Progam helps area A community effort

However, they also get out in the world for a true working experience. At the local Goodwill store, for example, the students have helped with inventory. At the Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter on March 29, Brandon Smith, 21, and Max VanWormer, 16, spent part of the day shredding paper for staff and working in the Kitty Kingdom, where adoptable cats are kept in a comfortable, playful setting. Tatara said eventually the students will be able to perform the “customer service” themselves, talking with potential adopters. VanWormer enjoys throwing a table-tennis ball at the cats and stroking them gently. “I like the cats and the dogs over there,” he said, talking about the shelter animals. Even playing with cats has its challenges. Last trimester (the students rotate duties between trimesters), a student with Attention Deficit Syndrome who worked

at the Kitty Kingdom talked too loudly in the facility. Tatara’s job was to convince him that if he talked more softly, the cats would come to him. Smith has spent CBI time at Darrell’s Market and Hardware, and has even put it in an application to work there. Smith said working in the community makes him feel good about contributing. “This is new for me,” he said. Tatara said the students receive stipends for their jobs, which are kept in a bank account in class. “Everything is encompassed in the classroom,” she said. It’s not all work and no play, though. Fridays, Tatara said, are reserved for recreation and leisure such as bowling and going to a movie. Even then, the students have to continue being in the “real world.” “They have to pay their own ticket,” Tatara said. Cathy McCormick, CBI program instructor, said, “It is a really cool program, giving special-needs students lots of hands-on experience, which research has proven to help students retain skills and learn skills faster.”

MASON — New crafter applications are still being accepted for the 28th annual Spring Fling Courthouse Show in Mason scheduled for 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. May 7.

The show is an outdoor show around the Ingham County Courthouse in downtown Mason and is held rain or shine. The show features a mix of arts and

crafts, flea market, food vendors and community group booths. Forms are available at Call the Mason Area Cham-

ber of Commerce office at (517) 676-1046 from 9 a.m..-3 p.m. on Monday through Friday, for more information. The 131 lawn and 18 street spaces are 10 feet by


well. “We got all these cupcakes,” Pam, his daughterin-law, said. “We’re trying to figure out the colors now.” Glenn’s son, Charles, said his dad was an area farmer plus kept a real estate office in addition to performing appraisals. Pam said Glenn even kept up with technology, learning how to use computers in the 1980s for his work. Glenn probably doesn’t surf the Web much now. In fact, when asked what he likes to do, he answered, “Sit here,” referring to his favorite chair brought from his former home. Also decorating his tidy living space at Green Acres are paintings by his late wife, Luceil, to whom he was married for 75 years. A

commemorative wall hanging signifying that diamond anniversary also hangs in Glenn’s room. Pam said her father-in-law reads the Lansing State Journal over and over, and isn’t much into bridge or Bingo. He also gets plenty of visits from family and staff. “The nurses come down and spend a lot of time with

him,” she said. Many well-wishers probably will show up April 9 to spend time with Glenn for his personal centennial, even though his 100th birthday doesn’t appear to enter his mind much. “Never thought much about it,” he said. However, Pam pointed out, “And now we’re making such a big deal of it.”

Oesterle notes 100th birthday

MASON — Come Thursday, April 7, Glenn Oesterle will be one of the few people on the planet to mark a certain milestone: a 100th birthday. An open house for Oesterle, will take place from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at his home, the Green Acres assisted living community, 1025 E. Ash St.. If you ask Glenn, though, about his upcoming celebration, he might answer, “That’s what they tell me.” However, that Saturday will give Glenn a chance to visit with family from as far away as Florida and Washington, D.C. Friends are invited as

10 feet and the fee is $60 per space. Exhibitors may set up any time after 6 a.m. May 7. The show is non-juried and applications are accepted on a first-come, firstserve basis until all booth spaces are reserved. Electricity is not available. No carpeting or flooring is permitted on lawn spaces. Daylong parking for vendors must be off-street, but several municipal lots are available. This year, organizers are again moving toward having three main sections in the show: “Artisan’s Row” for arts and crafts, “Community Corner” for local groups and “East Market” for flea market and manufactured

items. Only one vendor for certain manufactured items is allowed (i.e., Tupperware, Mary Kay, etc.) in “East Market.” There is also an area entertainment stage and an area called “Kid’s Korral,” which has activities for youngsters. Michelle Davis of the Shopping Guide and chair of the event said, “Our estimates are that upwards of 4,000 to 6,000 people attend the show each year, depending on the weather.” Davis said it a good response is anticipated this year based on current interest and last year’s sold-out success. — From the Mason Area Chamber of Commerce

AURELIUS TWP. — Learning the fine points of fine arts can begin with primary colors. Making color wheels, Styrofoam prints, masks and maracas — and learning about mosaics, foil relief and paper weaving, among other topics — were the focus of many stations visited by students at North Aurelius Elementary School during the March 25 Enrichment Day. “We just pick a different theme every year,” Principal Gina Stanley said, “to give the kids a fun thing to do.” Fine arts was this year’s theme. Indeed, the day was popular among the kids, giving them a break from traditional subject matter. For example, when firstgrader Ashton Bonner was asked his favorite part of making a color wheel, he said, “Mixing this,” and pointed to several piles of edible frosting in primary colors used to make new colors. Reading teacher Kristin Grattan helped at the color wheel session in which colorful squares were placed on

tive assistant position. Over the years, Titus has been involved with Relay for Life, Mason Cares and as a victim advocate for the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office. Her retirement was celebrated with a party on April 1. — From The Dart Bank

They also mixed frosting in a wheel shape as another part of this activity. “To see the way they make it with frosting is really fun,” Grattan said. A little discipline also had to be mixed into the activity as Grattan asked the students what senses (sight, smell) they use with their

lands on their laps. “You can’t touch, though, can you?” Grattan noted. Students were to visit other stations, whose titles included, “Pointillism,” “Movement” and “Dulcimers.” The day was to end with an afternoon assembly, “Rich Eddy’s Rocking Oldies.” Grattan said, “It’s such a cool, wonderful way to learn.”

The Biggest Counter People in Mason

Mason MEAP results good MASON — Bruce Barbour, executive director of curriculum for Mason Public Schools, said he was pleased with the recent results on the Michigan Educational Assessment Program MEAP) test. “Congratulations are in order for Gina Stanley, principal of North Aurelius Elementary, and her staff and students where 100 percent of the building’s third- and fourth-graders were deemed proficient on the mathematics portion of the assessment,” Barbour said. Also, 75 percent of Steele St. Elementary’s fourth-grade students were proficient on the newly reinstated

writing assessment compared to the state average of only 47 percent. Steele Principal Kathy Dean attributed the students’ success to the implementation by her staff of the Lucy Calkins writing program, which has been taught to Steele’s third-graders longer than at any other of Mason’s elementary buildings. Mason plans to launch this program district-wide in grades 3-6 next fall. Other highlights of Mason’s results: • Fourth-, fifth- and seventh-grade students scored higher than last year in both reading and math.

EAST LANSING -- Mason’s track teams began their season indoors at the MSU Invitational at Jenison Field House on March 29. Both the boys and girls finished sixth in the event, which included 14 girls teams and 15 boys’ teams. The teams combined for 15 top-5 finishes, and won two of them. Cassidy Hass took first place for the Bulldog girls in the 3,200-meter run, posting a time of 11:42.00, 15 seconds ahead of the field of 27 runners. Hass also took second place in the 1,600 when she was edged out of a second win by about a quarter of a second. On the boys’ side, Sean Wren won the 60-meter hurdles, posting a time of 8.32 seconds. Mason took three of the top five places on the boys’ 3,200-meter run, led by Tan-

ner Hinkle, who finished second with a time of 9.33.1, just .1 of a second behind East Lansing’s Robbie Glew. Mason VanDyke finished fourth and Joe Cecil finished fifth in the race, with times of 9:51.0 and 9:58.0, respectively. Three Bulldog pole vaulters finished in the top five, led by Trey Hornberger, who cleared 12 feet, 6 inches to finish second. Tim Conn’s jump of 12 feet placed fourth. On the girls’ side, Emily Reader’s vault of 9 feet placed third out of 18 competitors. Mason’s girls’ head coach Dave Jones was pleased with what he saw at the indoor meet. “For not filling in all events the other night, I thought our girls had a very strong start to the season,” Jones said. “Most of our distance runners have been working hard all winter, and

• Sixth- and eighth-grade students’ reading scores were at about the same levels as last year, but students averaged a three-year high in social studies (sixth), science (eighth) and math. • The percent of Mason students deemed proficient was higher than both the state and Ingham County averages in 17 of the 18 areas of assessment on the 2010 MEAP, with seventh-grade writing being the exception. A total of 43 percent of seventh-graders were proficient on the writing portion, which matched the county average while the state average was 48 percent, Barbour said. — From Mason Public Schools

Our toughest test, however, is right after spring break, when we head to Waverly, so our chances at a repeat may be determined early in the season.” That meet at Waverly, which also includes Sexton, will take place on April 12.

Mason blanks Charlotte

MASON — Mason began what could be a special girls soccer season the right way, with a 6-0 home win over Charlotte on March 28. Abby Meirndorf and Kali Barry each scored twice for the Bulldogs and Dani McNeilly and Jordan Young had one each in a game that could have been decided sooner via mercy rule but for some rusty finishing. Mason forced 17 saves from the Charlotte keeper, including one on a penalty kick in the second half. Mason head coach Christie Hursey said that her team played better than they scored. “We scored some goals but we obviously have to work on that,” Hursey said. “Our transition, our passing and our connecting with each other was really well played today.” The Bulldogs started quickly, as McNeilly got the opening goal of the season less than three minutes into it, curling a 20-yard blast into

the upper corner to give Mason a 1-0 lead. Barry scored the first of her two goals four minutes later, running onto a through ball from McNeilly and slotting it home from 10 yards out to make the score 2-0 with 33:27 left in the first half. Barry was the provider on Mason’s third goal, taking yet another through ball, this one from Brooke Dippel, and tapping it to Young, who blasted it home for her first career varsity goal with 19:41 left in the half. Meirndorf made it 4-0 just before halftime, curling a shot from near the left-wing corner of the penalty area into the upper corner of the far post with 22.2 seconds left on the clock. Mason’s fifth goal came 3:20 into the second half, when Meirndorf scored her second by putting a corner kick into the upper corner of the par post, the classic “Golazo Olimpico” making the score 5-0. Young then returned the favor from her first-half goal, stealing a Charlotte goal kick

and slotting a perfect pass to Barry, whose shot went through the Oriole keeper’s hands and made the score 6-0. Emily Bartlett and Amber Denomme combined for the shutout in goal for the Bulldogs, but both were largely spectators in the game. Charlotte had its one and only shot on goal with 6:50 left in the game, a free kick from 30 yards out that Denomme saved easily. Hursey said that it was a good game in which to tweak the tactics. “We have some formation things we needed to look at and work through, and see where the players did their best,” she said. “In the early games you’re just trying to get on the same page so that you can start improving throughout the year.”
