Rayner Park embraced

Community turns out for spring cleaning By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — Jim Maddix looked at the dozens of volunteers who showed up on April 2 to clean up Rayner Park as it opened for the season. “This is just nothing but amazing to me,” Maddix said. Maddix has been spearheading clean-up efforts for Rayner, located at 730 E. Ash St. Last year the city entered into an agreement with Ingham County in which the city will pay $1 per year through Dec. 31, 2016 to lease the park. After meeting agreement terms, the city has the rights to buy the park, which had been closed by the county because of budget reasons, for $1. However, it has been estimated it costs about $43,000 annually to maintain the park. Last November, residents passed an advisory vote favoring the City Council increase the city’s general operating millage by up to 0.5 mills for fiscal year beginning July 1 to raise funds for the entire municipal park system.

Making it their own

In the meantime, volunteers have been pitching in by providing manual labor to spruce up the be-

For more photos, visit loved park, which includes a castle-like play structure, a native woodland garden, basketball courts and picnic areas, among other amenities. Maddix said residents who volunteered on April 2 to rake, gather leaves and perform other tasks are taking ownership of the park. “This is their park,” Maddix said. “They want it to be theirs.” Michelle Cordano showed up with her son Nicolas, 4, to help out. “It’s a beautiful park, great playground,” Michelle said. She also was thinking of the future.

“We want it to stay nice and clean for generations,” Michelle said. Barbara Spottek, who worked along with her husband Randy, said she has been coming to Rayner for years. “It belongs to the community now,” she said. “We have to take care of it.” Eight-year-old Julia Swan also said she enjoys Rayner. “I really like, pretty much, the swings,” Julia said. Boy Scout Troop 141 and Girl Scout Troop 335 pitched in, and Gordon Schleicher said area Kiwanians and Aktion Club members (adults with disabilities) were there to lend a hand as well.

Schleicher said he too was happy to see the big turnout. “It’s a park the community loves,” he said. Maddix said clean-up efforts will be ongoing. Anyone who wants to get involved can email him at or visit the Facebook page, Rayner Park Volunteers. However, Maddix appears to be already impressed with the way the community has gotten involved, especially one teen who asked him if age 14 was old enough to help. It was. “I’m in awe of the people of Mason,” Maddix said.

MASON — The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close the Kipp Road bridge over U.S. 127 on April 11 for reconstruction until early September. During construction, the entrance and exit ramps at the interchange will remain open but Kipp Road will be closed directly over the highway. When the bridge is closed, eastbound traffic on Kipp will be directed south on U.S. 127 to the Barnes Road exit, then north on U.S. 127 back to Kipp. Westbound Kipp traffic will be directed north on U.S. 127 to the Cedar Street exit, then south on U.S. 127 back to Kipp. A weekend closure of U.S. 127 to remove the existing structure is currently scheduled for the following weekend, April 15-17. During this closure, motorists should expect both

northbound and southbound U.S. 127 to be closed from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Sunday. Traffic will be maintained using the entrance and exit ramps at the interchange. Another weekend closure also may be needed for beam setting at the new bridge. Otherwise, only shoulder closures will be in effect on U. S. 127 during this project. The entire project is expected to wrap up by the Labor Day holiday weekend. For updates, visit — From the Michigan Department of Transportation

have a misconception about the natural landscaping. Clark questioned whether the project would be controlled growth, or if there would be ivy growing up the walls and a large tree canopy covering up the building. Schneider said the site wouldn’t be a prairie, but even as a tidy spot, wouldn’t be what people are accustomed to. Schneider said, “I think the landscape certainly has to reflect that LEED certification.” Councilwoman Barb Tornholm agreed with the concept, saying that not only would the site be a “signature piece” for Wildtype for a way to educate the public on proper landscaping. Councilman Mike Waltz suggested a legend be placed at the site to identify species. Goosen said he could make that addition.

The Mason Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors provides a ribbon cutting on April 1 for the opening of BlueGrass Lawn & Landscape, Inc. at its new location of 781 Hull Road, just south of Kipp Road.

According to a recent survey by the Better Hearing Institute, more than nine out of ten (93 percent) consumers said that hearing instruments improved the quality of their lives. Eighty-five percent of the respondents to the survey indicated that they were satisfied with the benefits they derived from using a hearing instrument. Nine out of ten survey respondents said they enjoyed improved communication in one-on-one situations with the help of a hearing instrument. More than eight out of ten were satisfied with their instruments’ performance in small

groups and while watching television. Seventy-five percent were satisfied with their instruments outdoors, while listening to music, during leisure activities, in the home, at restaurants and religious settings. P.S. Nearly half of the respondents to the survey mentioned above used digital instruments as opposed to analog ones.

For a demonstration or to inquire more about any of these devices, please contact an audiologist at the Hearing Health Center.

Friends celebrate John Smith’s 100 years By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — At age 100, John Alfred Smith still drives (although not very far) and plays computer games. His active life — and 100th birthday — was celebrated with a gathering of friends and city officials on April 2 at Smith’s residence, Jefferson Square. Was the big day different for Smith? “Not much,” he said, matter-of-factly. “Same as yesterday.” However, Smith planned the event himself, even providing the KFC meals for party-goers. Fire Chief Kerry Minshall joked that he came to the celebration so he “could start planning his own.” Fred Meyer, manager at Jefferson Square, said the centenarian is “very sharp.” “He has to be independent to live here,” Meyer said. Smith was born April 2, 1911 in Boston. His father died when he was only 10 years old, thrusting their family, according to a fourpage autobiography Smith penned himself for the spe-

cial occasion, into poverty. However, that bonded the family, with Smith taking advantage of every free educational opportunity he could. His educational resume reads as follows: • La Salle Extension University, accounting • Alexander Institute, business and economics • Rindge Technical School, metalography • Northeastern University, industrial engineering • Wayne State University, industrial management • Mass School of Culinary Arts, professional cooking Smith’s working career includes stints as a cook; private secretary; departments manager, executive vice president and general manager of General Alloys Co. of Boston; and an officer and assistant executive vice president of the Michigan Steel Casting Corp. of Detroit. It hasn’t always been easy. Smith wrote in his miniautobiography, “This excellent company (sadly) was dissolved in 1956, when taken over by industrial pirates.”

Smith then re-entered the real-estate business as a salesman, but following an economic recession, accepted a production engineering position with the Swedish Crucible Steel. Co. of Hamtramck. After six years with the company, “internal politics began to make life too unpleasant,” so Smith went back to real estate, becoming a broker with his own company until his retirement in 1979. Recreationally, Smith called himself a lifelong exponent of physical culture, exercising with weights and running, and also was an avid golfer. Smith and his late wife, Gertrude, had three daughters: Carol Gertrude, Eileen Patricia and Barbara Jean. Smith stays busy, and is currently putting the finishing touches on his first major Christie Bleck writing effort, “The Wagering & Investing Miracle Phe- John Smith, seated, celebrates his 100th birthday with (from left ) Mayor Leon nomena.” Clark, City Administrator Marty Colburn and Fire Chief Kerry Minshall.

Gets special day

Mayor Leon Clark proclaimed April 3, the day after his birthday, John Alfred Smith Day, declaring him a “memorable person.”

Clark noted Smith had lived in the city for only 17 years, but that didn’t seem to matter. “One hundred years is a long time,” Clark said. “Sev-

enteen years is not so long. But we’ve adopted you as a citizen of Mason.” City Administrator Marty Colburn mentioned the proximity of City Hall to

New church focuses on community outreach Service important

The first Sunday of every month is Service Sunday — as opposed to Sunday service — at The Fringe. For example, church members have volunteered at Jefferson Square, a senior community in downtown Mason, and created Valentine baskets and Thanksgiving dinner for Angel House, a local shelter for children and teen mothers. The Eisenmanns said they anticipate expanding to jail ministry and tutoring students in after-school programs. “We kind of consider ourselves missionaries now,” Eric said. The Fringe has about 30 members now in three Bible studies areas. The Eisen-

Each year Jehovah’s Witnesses gather to commemorate Jesus’ death on its anniversary, Nisan 14, 33 C.E., which this year falls on Sunday, April 17th after sundown. Jehovah’s Witnesses warmly invite you to meet with them to examine the significance of Jesus’ death (Isaiah Chapter 53) at 8 p.m., April 17, 2011 at the Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 1331 Eifert Rd., Holt.

VEVAY TWP. — Don’t be turned off by the church’s name: “The Fringe.” Actually, the full name is The Fringe: A Wesleyan Church, recently begun by husband-and-wife pastors Eric and Tamar Eisenmann. The “Fringe,” Eric explained, indicates it’s on the fringe of culture, not obsessed with material goods and concerned with the poor and forgotten. That means, according to Tamar, not living the most comfortable life. “Jesus sacrificed for us, so we’re called to sacrifice for him,” she said. Tamar recently was pastor at Kentwood Community Church near Grand Rapids. Eric served as an intern at the church, having recently received his pastoral license. The Fringe, whose office is in the Eisenmanns’ home at 1653 Menominee Drive, is an offshoot of Kentwood.

“They ‘plant’ a church every year,” Tamar said. The Eisenmanns have their own religious mission. “It’s really about who we are as followers of Christ, and who we are called to reach,” Eric said.

U-steal, U-lodged

March 30: An officer received a theft report in the 500 block of Hull Road. The complainant stated two people sharing a cart were at the U-scan. One of the pair scanned items and was paying when the second pushed the cart with the remaining items past the U-scan and headed for the exit, with no attempt to pay. Due to the suspect’s stated intent of not paying for the items in the cart and a history of such behavior, he was arrested and taken to the Ingham County Jail, where he was lodged on a charge of retail fraud, second degree.

stopped at an area service station and happened to notice a man pumping gas into a black Cadillac who appeared nervous and was watching the officer very closely. After making sure the car and its owner were not “wanted,” the officer went inside, but upon looking out a window, witnessed the driver get into the car and drive away without paying. After checking with the clerk and making sure the gas — totaling $62 — was not paid for, the officer followed. The suspect car turned onto northbound U.S. 127, and the officer activated his lights and siren. The vehicle did not pull over at first, and the two occupants could be seen moving around inside the car and something being thrown into the back seat. The car finally pulled over to the side of the roadway. Investigation revealed the object thrown into the back seat was a cold, but open can of beer. The driver was arrested for theft of the gasoline and transporting open intoxicants. The passenger, who had been drinking, was given a ride home so as not to leave him wandering the freeway. The driver was lodged in the Ingham County Jail and the car, impounded.

Since he had not done any work for “Michael” yet, he thought this was very suspicious — especially since the check, when he got it, was for $2,970. He did some research on the addresses and phone numbers associated with the check and realized the whole thing was a scam. Fortunately, although he had been told to deposit the check and wait
