Leslie OKs plan for water facility LESLIE — The Leslie City Council has approved a final project plan for improvements to its water system. The city had to OK a plan so it could apply for a state loan from the Drinking Water Revolving Fund (DWRF), City Manager Brian Reed said. The purpose of the project is to replace the existing iron-removal plant on Bellevue with a new facility next to the current one. The project also involves installing water meters, improving system reliability and upgrading water-tower safety. The estimated cost to users, if a 20-year 2.5-percent DWRF is granted, would be a total annual cost of $226,200 or $18.88 per month per residential user. “The existing water-treatment plant is 37 years old and is just plain wearing out,” said Greg Minshall of Fitzgerald, Henne & Associates, city engineers. Minshall said DWRF loans are awarded based on points for treatment options and system improvements, with a final priority list created by Oct. 1. A fundable range is developed in Octo-

Farms come alive

Neverrest trip takes visitor back in time By CHRISTIE BLECK

ALAIEDON TWP. — Getting butter for the morning’s toast now is usually just a trip to the grocery store away. It wasn’t always that way, as farming folks from yesterday had to painstakingly churn away to make the creamy spread. Remnants of that lifestyle — vintage butter churns — and other agricultural artifacts are on display at the Neverrest Farm Family Museum, located at 1911 Harper Road. Owned and operated by Ronald Smith

“We got a little bit of everything.” – Ronald Smith, owner and family, the museum is home to a unique array of items, from arrowheads to old farm tools to vintage toys. Smith, 79, built the museum in 1986, building on a collection amassed by his late father, Owen. “We got a little bit of everything,” Smith said. Among the museum items are gas engines, a toy train, art pieces, Sparton KarSee Museum/page 4

LESLIE — The Leslie City Council has extended its six-month medical marijuana moratorium to the end of the year. The City Council on April 12, listening to the advice of City Attorney Mark Grua, decided to wait for more regulatory guidance from the Michigan legislature. In 2008 state voters passed a law that allows registered caregivers to grow a limited number of plants for patients with prescription for the drug. Last October, the City Council passed a 180-day moratorium on medical marijuana-related businesses. On Tuesday, Grua suggested giving the legislature a chance to sort out the law, which has been a point of confusion for many municipalities that have sought legal advice on how to deal with it. “This Medical Marijuana Act has kept law firms busy,” Grua said.

Issues unclear

Many municipalities have passed moratoriums so they can clarify zoning and other issues. For instance, Grua said some communities have limited medical-marijuana businesses to a particular area with a special-use permit. “It takes a lot of thought to go into the structure,”

“We really don’t have the resources to battle it out in court with the big guys.” – City Manager Brian Reed Grua said. City Manager Brian Reed stressed that the city is not keeping an eye on anyone with a medical-marijuana card. Councilmember Jennifer Shuster asked if any potential business people had contacted the city about setting up shop in Leslie. Reed said about half a dozen had inquired about the possibility. Grua said he and Reed had been looking at other model ordinances in the past six months. What was found, according to Grua, was a “myriad of options.” “It’s a patchwork out there as far as how communities respond,” Grua said. Reed noted Leslie has limitations now on how it can handle the issue. “We really don’t have the resources to battle it out in court with the big guys,” he said. “Give it a little more time,” Grua said.

Museum: Neverrest place for history Continued from page 1

belt seat belts, old dairy bottles and car jacks, flat irons, a bottle of Dickinson’s witch hazel and an unopened can of White House coffee dating back to at least the 1950s. Numerous horseshoes also line one wall of the museum. “Can’t find any two alike,” Smith said. There even are old sewing ma-

chines, arrowheads and mastodon bones. Smith, a dairy farmer who’s lived on the property since 1940, said some of the artifacts go back to the 19th century. “A lot of it was before my time, you might say,” he said. Smith gives museum tours to individuals and school and 4-H groups so they too can learn about farm life from decades past. “It’s a history of things, really,”

Smith said. Vevay Township farm aficionado and local author Cecil Darnell appreciates what Smith has done for the community through his museum, saying he’s dedicated to keeping everything working as originally intended. “Ron’s willingness to share his family interest in our rural history is selfless,” Darnell said. The Neverrest Farm Family Museum is “open by chance” and is available for group tours. Call (517) 676-9391.

Safety improvements and installing new water mains will occur from 2014-2020. However, Minshall pointed out he doesn’t see “shovels hitting dirt” this year.

those residents. The township is attempting to correct its admitted deficiencies in the application for a specialuse permit, Klein said. “We would be very pleased if after a new public hearing, a negative recommendation from the planning commission results in the township board denying the application,” he said. However, Klein said he and others opposing the application don’t expect that to happen. The township cannot legally issue a permit for racing or construction during the appeal process, Klein noted. Coats said he believes the dragway would be an economic plus for the area. “We want to work with the community to help revitalize this area, and you can’t go wrong when you bring money and jobs into a struggling economy,” Coats said.

Ingham clerk facing lawsuit


MASON — A lawsuit claims that Ingham County Clerk Mike Bryanton forced out an employee after it was determined she left a voice mail message that hinted Bryanton was cheating on his wife. The lawsuit, filed last week in Ingham County Circuit Court, claims Bryanton violated a state law that prohibits employers from administering polygraph tests when he required the now-former employee, Nicole Anderson, to undergo a voice test to determine if she left the message. It also says Bryanton, who is married, promoted a woman with whom he was romantically involved to a high-level position in the office, despite the fact that she had minimal experience and had worked in the office 1 1/2 years. That employee, Janie Lee, was promoted in July 2010 from deputy clerk to chief deputy/elections coordinator. In an interview, the 65-year-old Bryanton denied having a romantic relationship with Lee, 34. He said the salary increase came as a result of a reorganization that saved the county tens of thousands of dollars. “There’s no inappropriate relationship between Janie Lee and myself,” he

said. Lee’s salary went from $32,241 in 2009 to $61,072 in July 2010, according to county records. Lee’s promotion, Bryanton said, was part of a reorganization done because of budget cuts. The reorganization was approved by county commissioners, Bryanton noted, and salaries are set by the county’s human resources department. Lee, in an interview, said, “Nothing inappropriate has ever happened between me and Mike.” Several former employees — all of whom left within the last two years — told the Lansing State Journal they supported the lawsuit’s claims of a romantic relationship between Bryanton and Lee. Teresa Borsuk, a county employee for three decades who was chief deputy until retiring last year, said Bryanton kept a photograph of Lee’s young daughter on his desk. Anderson, a former deputy clerk, says she resigned under pressure after being accused of leaving a voice mail message for Lee’s boyfriend that said: “There might be more to your girlfriend Janie’s relationship with her boss.” Anderson denied that she was responsible for the message left in early January. The lawsuit says Bryanton, county attorney Bonnie Toskey and Anderson’s union representative, Sally

Auer, met Feb. 8, and afterward, Toskey told Anderson that she would have to take a voice test. That test found that Anderson’s voice matched the person who made the call. She resigned under pressure, the lawsuit says, but then tried to take back her resignation. On March 4, Toskey notified Anderson that the county had accepted her resignation and “refused to acknowledge” that she tried to rescind it, the lawsuit says. Anderson’s attorney, Jeffrey Ray, said his client didn’t make the call to Lee’s boyfriend. She resigned, he said, because she was made to believe she didn’t have a choice. “They told her they had scientific proof it was her, no matter what she said,” said Ray, who also questioned why her union representative did not back her. Auer did not return a message seeking comment. Requiring Anderson to take a voice test, according to the lawsuit, violated Michigan’s polygraph protection act, which prohibits employers from administering polygraph tests to employees. The voice test, the lawsuit says, used instrumentation to help verify Anderson’s truthfulness, and thus was the same as a polygraph.

MASON — Michael E. Cavanaugh of Mason, vice president of Fraser Trebilcock, was named Michigan Lawyers Weekly “Leaders in the Law,” and was recognized at recent luncheon in Troy. He is one of just 25 lawyers in the state who were granted this award. Cavanaugh is past-president of the Ingham County Bar Association, a member of the Steering Committee for Friends of Legal Aid, successfully argued two cases before the United States Supreme Court, a captain in the U.S. Army and a youth soccer coach. “Mike has a unique blend of great intellect and work ethic combined with exceptional advocacy skills that results in tremendous success for his clients,” said Thaddeus Morgan, president of Fraser Trebilcock. In 1979, Cavanaugh was representing Dr. Ronald Hutchinson, a research scientist funded by the government who was studying aggression in primates, including monkeys and humans. In a story retold by Super Lawyers (2008), “The Navy and NASA were interested in human applications of the research during extended confinement in space and under the sea. At that same time, Wisconsin Sen. William Proxmire,

had just created the ‘Golden Fleece Award’ for what he considered wasteful government spending and announced a Golden Fleece for Dr. Hutchinson, alleging he had “made a monkey out of the American taxpayer.” Not only did a U.S. Senator ridicule a professor for conducting research, that same senator contacted the relevant agencies to defund his project. After losing in the lower courts, the U.S. Supreme Court accepted the case.

Noted case

Today, most law students study Hutchinson v Proxmire, 443 U.S. 111 (1979), and the infamous “Golden Fleece Award,” a case that Cavanaugh argued on behalf of the petitioner in the U.S. Supreme Court regarding free speech and libel. Cavanaugh practices commercial and employment litigation as well as alternative dispute resolution, with Fraser Trebilcock in Lansing. — From Fraser Trebilcock

He is living much more comfortably now, due to a procedure performed by Mohan Kulkarni, MD. The procedure, called TIF, repairs the muscle dysfunction that causes GERD. “I liked that this procedure doesn’t require an incision and there is a shorter recovery period,” Hugh said.

the trunk lid of a car, the other on the side of the car. Six more MDOP incidents were discovered and reported later in the morning. Cars on Kiwanis Drive, Middlebury, Lansing St., Walnut Court and W. Columbia were spray-painted, and a garage door on Peachtree was spray painted with an upside down L. Dodge’em and leave April 6: A hit-and-run accident was reported after a vehicle drove over a pole on the sidewalk in front of a downtown business. The witness reported seeing a blue and primer gray Dodge pickup on top of the pole. The witness added the suspect stared at him, making him nervous, so he avoided contact but did watch as the driver had to use a jack to free the impaled vehicle. The witness then saw the suspect go into a store and stay briefly, causing the witness to believe the suspect had done “the right thing” and called the police. But the witness, being suspicious, talked to an employee of the store and found out the suspect made no calls, so the witness did. The matter remains under investigation. Couple disagrees April 7: An officer and a deputy were dispatched to a Mason home after the Dispatch Center received a call of an argument between adults from one of the participant’s children. The call was disconnected during the information gathering interview. The officer found that an argument, but no assault, had occurred between the pair. The female stated it was over sex; the male stated it was because the child was disrespectful all the time. The male was wanted in Inkster for loitering in a drug area, but Mason was outside the pick-up radius, and Inkster PD would not pick up. The pair separated for the night to cool off. Laylin mayhem April 7: An officer was dispatched to Laylin Park where it was reported seven juveniles where “tearing up the park” and had thrown a garbage receptacle into the pond. The officer found the suspects playing “hacky sack” in the pavilion after they had moved the picnic tables out of the way. The officer also found a trash receptacle in a creek bed to the east, and one in the pond. The group claimed three other roving teenagers pushed

the barrel into the pond. The seven put the tables back and removed the one receptacle from the creek bed. The barrel in the pond was out of reach and will be reported to the Parks Department for removal. Spray Paint Part II April 7: A late report of damage done to a vehicle was received from Peachtree Place. The victim’s vehicle had been spray-painted the same way as the prior 11 victims reported. The colors of the spray paint where consistent with the prior incidents.

Between April 5-11, Mason police investigated 63 reported incidents involving a variety of activities. These are some of those incidents worth noting. For a complete report, visit Un-fare cab ride April 5: An officer was dispatched to a larceny complaint on S. Cedar St. The officer met a cab driver who reported picking up a “fare” at an apartment complex, taking him to an address in Lansing where he had to wait while the suspect ran inside a residence, then back out again to the cab after only a brief stay. The complainant added he then returned the fare to the apartment complex where the suspect bolted from the cab without paying and disappeared into the apartment building. The suspect was described as a thin white male, about 20 years old, wearing a white or light-colored T-shirt and baggy jeans, with a tattoo of a spider on his neck. A witness was located who identified the suspect, but when the officer called the residence, asking for the suspect by name, he was told he had the wrong number. The investigation will continue. Almost $6K worth taken April 5: An officer was called to take a larceny report in the 500 block of Hull Road after the complainant called to report the theft of $5,800 worth of merchandise, primarily iPods. The complainant stated that video documentation showed two black male suspects entering the premises — one, making multiple trips in and out, and the other, leaving with a backpack he did not enter the premises with. It appeared the locked display had been forced open and the items removed. The suspects were recorded arriving at the premises in a tealcolored vehicle at about 2:50 a.m. On a painting spree April 6: An officer received a malicious damage to property report in the 100 block of Kiwanis Drive where a suspect or suspects spry-painted “FTW” on the driver’s door of the victim’s car and spray-painted over the license plate. A second incident where “FTW” was spray-painted on the side of a car was reported on Foxview. A third incident involving the “FTW” and other spray-paint graffiti was reported on Ash St. The officer found two more graffiti incidents where “FTW” was spray-painted on cars, both on Peachtree Place — one on

14 Candy bar fails to hide April 8: An officer stopped a car for a loud exhaust and when he contacted the driver, he noted the driver was stuffing a candy bar into his mouth and devouring it as quickly as possible, while trying to look away from the officer as if to conceal his actions. Investigation uncovered the driver was impaired. A breath-alcohol test resulted in a .02 percent, even though the driver claimed never to have consumed alcohol. The investigation then turned to impairment by drugs. Supported by the obvious impairment and drug paraphernalia found inside the car, the driver was arrested for driving while under the influence of drugs. A search warrant for blood was obtained and executed at a qualified medical facility, and the driver later was lodged in the Ingham County Jail. A new LOL April 8: Another traffic stop was made for a moving violation during which the officer noticed a plastic bag protruding from a passenger’s coat pocket. When asked, the passenger reported he smoked the contents to get high. Examining the bag, the officer noted it labeled “LOL, not for human consumption.” The driver then admitted to having a pipe which is used to get high, producing a small glass pipe from a pocket. Neither person showed any signs of impairment. They were released after the driver was issued citations for improper lane use, failing to change the address on her driver’s license and possession of drug paraphernalia. The “LOL” was seized and will be submitted for testing as a possible violation of the recently passed K2 statute that made certain chemicals used in manufacturing faux marijuana-like substances illegal. F.T.W., FYI April 8: An officer was dispatched to assist

the county in securing an area perimeter during a K-9 track that occurred on Cedar Street for an armed robbery suspect. An officer received another graffiti complaint from the Parks Department that had occurred over the previous night. Delinquents had spray painted four names, each with a large “X” through it, followed by the word “DONE” and then “F.T.W.” Anyone having any information regarding the vandals responsible for the rash of graffiti incidents recently inflicted on Mason and its citizens is asked to contact the Police Department. Driver arrested, lodged April 9: An officer witnessed a car speeding southbound on S. Jefferson St. As the car continued on, the officer also witnessed it weaving in and out of its lane, driving in the northbound lane after crossing Kipp Road. Once the car was stopped and the driver contacted, a drunken driving investigation proceeded. The investigation and a breath-alcohol test result of .13 percent substantiated the officer’s decision to arrest the driver for operating while under the influence of alcohol and take him to the Ingham County Jail, where he was lodged. The car was left legally parked at a friend’s driveway where the driver had stopped. Suspect arrested April 9: An officer was following a car as it proceeded eastbound on Ash Street. When it entered the intersection of Jefferson Street, a southbound car ran the stop light, striking the victim’s vehicle. Before the officer could react, the suspect continued south without stopping. When the officer caught up, the suspect continued on without pulling over for the emergency equipment warning until he reached Lansing St. The officer had called for another unit check on the victim and an MSP trooper re-

Spray-Paint Part III? April 9: An officer received a report of two juveniles spraypainting an apartment dumpster and a vacant house on E. Cherry St. The two have been located and contacted with their parents, and the investigation remains open. On its face, this matter does not appear to be related to the recent rash of graffiti tagging reported around the city. Self-help sought April 10: Officers received a report of an intoxicated and suicidal person driving around the complainant’s neighborhood. The complainant reported being estranged from the suspect for two days after an argument. This date the suspect called and made comments leading the complainant to believe self-harm was intended. The officers could not locate the suspect and while they were interviewing the complainant, a family member called to report the suspect was on the way to seek voluntary treatment. An easy citation April 10: An officer was dispatched to the skate park for a disorderly person riding a bike in the park. When the officer arrived, the suspect walked his bike up the officer, stating he knew the officer was there for him. The officer confirmed it, issued a citation for violation of park rules and sent the suspect on his way. At least stories match April 11: Officers responded to a call of a fight between a male and female in a parking lot on N. Cedar St. Both subjects told the officers the same story. They met there to discuss the male’s infidelity and an argument broke out. The female was walking away when the male grabbed her from behind, after which she turned and pushed him away. The male then went into the vehicle, wrapped a belt around his neck and proceeded to tighten it. The female then got into the vehicle and wrestled the belt off the male’s neck.
