MASON — The Mason City Council will continue its temporary medical-marijuana moratorium for another 180 days. The City Council on May 16 voted 7-0 to extend the moratorium on issuing licenses for primary caregiver operations and dispensaries in the city. The Council on Dec. 20, 2010 originally declared a moratorium for 180 days, which runs through June 20. However, it revisited the issue at the April 18 Council meeting, talking about the legal complications of the law and how other municipalities are handling the issue. The Council made no decision at that meeting, but Mayor Leon Clark noted at the time, “Keep in mind the clock’s ticking.” During the discussion at the April 18 meeting, the Mason City Attorney’s Office recommended the moratorium’s extension because of evolving case law and further study of the law. With no discussion, the Council unanimously voted to extend the moratorium last Monday.

Moratoriums common

The Council is not the only one to have extended a moratorium. The Leslie City Council, for example, on April 12 extended its 180-day moratorium until the end of the year. On Oct. 5, 2010, the Council passed the first moratorium, with City Manager Brian Reed explaining at the time that the city wasn’t yet prepared to understand how the

law fits into local zoning. The Williamston City Council’s second 180-day moratorium is set to expire on Aug. 23. The city is considering an ordinance that would restrict caregivers to three industrial zone areas. The draft ordinance is on hold while a committee reviews developments regarding the issue. In a May 17 public hearing, the Williamstown Township Planning Commission unveiled draft rules that would allow registered caregivers to operate either from their homes or from storefronts along the Grand River Avenue corridor. It plans to discuss the draft rules at its June meeting and will send its recommendations to the Township Board.

Law unclear

In 2008 state residents passed an initiative, the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act, which authorized patients to obtain the plant by creating and allowing primary caregivers to grow, possess and deliver limited amounts to patients. Dispensaries have been established in some areas from which medical marijuana can be sold, delivered and dispensed to patients. However, dispensaries currently are in violation of federal law, which is contributing to municipalities’ confusion on how to regulate them. The resolution the Council passed 7-0 on Monday regarding the extension listed several concerns regarding the act. They include the fact that the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act has resulted in primary caregivers combining to form dispensaries in adjacent municipalities in which multiple registered caregivers operate from a single building. This creates situations in which amounts of marijuana greater than the Act would otherwise allow for a single caregiver are being possessed and stored on single lots and properties.

Needles in nets

Aggravated assault

May 11: Officers responded to a domestic assault where the victim was waiting outside the home while the suspect remained inside. The victim accused the suspect of infidelity, stating that she has to chauffeur him about, and he forces her to drive him to another woman’s house for visits. The victim stated this angers her and when she confronted him with it, he grabbed her around the neck and threw her onto the bed. The victim also claimed at one point the suspect removed his pants and tried to force her to have intimate relations with him, which she refused; but the suspect restrained her by the hair, pushing her about, so that she struck a door jamb and a kitchen counter. She added that when he released her, he struck her in the mouth. Having familiarity with the suspect’s assaultive behavior, and because of past encounters, two officers, two deputies and two troopers went to the residence, where the suspect surrendered peacefully. He was arrested and lodged in the Ingham County Jail. The Ingham County prosecutor has issued charges of aggravated domestic assault and battery.

Of Canadian origin May 11: An officer received an attempted fraud complaint from a Mason resident who reported receiving a phone call from a purported attorney in Spain, claiming to represent her grandson who was in a Madrid jail on drug charges. The complainant stated another man came onto the phone who claimed to be her grandson, was crying and reported needing $3,600 for bail money. Before withdrawing any money to send for the requested bail, the complainant called her son who reported the grandson was not in jail

Tots make escape

May 12: Officers were notified of two 2-yearold children found playing in the backyard of a residence on Maple Run, one of whom was naked from the waist down. Investigation located the mother at a nearby residence where the officer noticed a window screen pushed out from an open bedroom window. The mother was unaware the children where not in their room and was quickly reunited with the exploring duo.

Harassment by hose

May 12: An officer responded to an assault complainant where a parent reported her child was assaulted by a neighbor child. The parent reported her child was threatening to spray the other child with water from the garden house when the other child struck him. The other child stated she was tired of constant harassment by the hose wielder and didn’t want to be sprayed — especially at the risk of getting her cell phone wet — so she hit him. The parent of the second child explained this was part of an ongoing pattern of harassment by the alleged victim’s family and she was trying to move her family from the area but couldn’t for financial reasons. She agreed to have her daughter stay away from the other child to avoid problems. The complainant thought any request for her son to keep away the alleged assailant and cease his actions was unreasonable. She wanted to prosecute and if needed, she would “turn (her son) loose” if the girl kept this up. The officer recounted an ongoing series of complaints involving the two, which originated in assault allegations naming the hose holder as the suspect, and the girl as the victim. The matter is closed.

Many citations given May 12: An officer stopped a car on Cedar Street for an equipment violation. As the stop was made, the officer quickly ascertained it was following another vehicle that was in front of it. That vehicle also stopped. Contact with the suspected offender found he was driving while suspended and the car was owned by the driver of the vehicle he was following, who also was suspended and wanted by the Lansing Police Department. The officer was informed the pair was on their way to a prearranged meeting point where they could make a visitation with the child they shared. The first driver was released after being issued citations for driving while suspended, improper display of a registration plate and no proof of insurance. The second driver was cited for driving while suspended and was arrested and turned over to Lansing Police officers on the warrant. A licensed driver was called to take possession of both vehicles.

Garden by flashlight

May 12: Suspicious activity was reported in the Community Garden on N. Jefferson St. A witness reported seeing a man in the garden after dark using a flashlight and accompanied by a small dog. The officer found nothing obviously out of place but did notify the appropriate responsible party at City Hall about the incident.

Bicycle missing

May 13: The theft of a bicycle was reported in the 800 block of Eaton Drive. The victim stated he left his bicycle at his friend’s house after forgetting it and when he went to retrieve it, it was gone. The missing bike is a red 20-inch BMX Mongoose with a black Schwinn bag attached. The victim has no suspects.

No assault prosecution

May 13: Officers responded to a domestic where the complainant reported her former boyfriend was on the front porch and wouldn’t leave. Officers found the pair arguing on the porch and immediately saw the trespassing suspect had blood from apparent scratches on his face and a cut and swollen lip. The pair agreed the argument was over alleged infidelity and that the complainant had struck the suspect as a result. As is the procedure in domestic violence cases, the complainant was arrested for domestic assault, taken to the Ingham County Jail and lodged. The following day the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office denied the warrant, citing the victim’s unwillingness to prosecute.

Fraud alleged

May 13: A Mason resident came into the police department to report an attempted fraud. The complainant stated she responded to a Craig’s List posting advertising for a care worker. However, she became suspicious when See MASON POLICE REPORT, Page 4

the person responsible for the posting could not answer her questions about the needs of the person needing care. She became convinced this was an attempt to induce her into a fraud when the poster stated he was sending her a check to cash, some of which she was to keep, and the majority balance she was to send to a woman in Colorado. The complainant reported she severed ties with the suspect, but the check still arrived, registered mail, as promised. Instead of following directions, though, she brought the check and turned it over to the investigating officer. The matter remains open.

The driver was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of drugs, and a search warrant was executed for blood samples. The passenger was arrested on the multiple warrants and cited for open intoxicants. Both were taken to the Ingham County Jail and lodged.

Assault charge issued

May 14: Officers were dispatched to a domestic assault in progress after a neighbor reported seeing a male drag a female into a house. Officers located the pair at their home and investigated, finding a large bruise on the victim’s upper arm. It turned out the couple argued because the suspect was trying to exit the relationship and leave. The victim ran out of house and the suspect followed her, forcing her to return. Although the apparent injury was supposedly inflicted four days prior during another assault by the suspect, the victim reported that this date she was grabbed by the arms and dragged into the house by the suspect. The officers found more injuries on the victim to substantiate her allegations, and the suspect was arrested for the domestic assault. The following day the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office issued a charge of domestic assault.

Stop yields arrests

May 15: While patrolling late in the evening, an officer came upon a car stopped at an intersection, waiting for a yellow flashing light. The officer stopped behind it, and after a short time had passed, the car and driver continued on. The officer then pulled it over. Contact with the driver found she was the designated driver for the intoxicated passenger, even though she did not have, nor had she ever had, an operator’s license. In addition, the officer found that although the driver had not consumed alcohol, she had been consuming marijuana, still had one joint she claimed belonged to the passenger and was not a medical marijuana user. The officer also discovered the intoxicated passenger

ant reported receiving an inquiry, by telephone, from a person claiming to be coming to Mason from Georgia and needing to lodge a horse at the complainant’s business. The complainant added that the suspect sent a check to cover the lodging fee and enough balance ($2,000) to forward to the hauler to cover costs of transporting the horse.

Band aid

The Ingham County Community News recently published an article about the school board

proposal to cut the Mason band program from two full time band directors to one and a half. Band parents, students and other supporters have spoken at the last two Mason Board of Education meetings to support retaining two full time directors. The reasons are myriad, from higher overall test scores in school, particularly in math, to the long and distinguished tradition the Mason band program contributes to the students and to the community. High school director Beth Bousfield and middle school director Amber McRay routinely begin their days at 6 a.m. This isn’t when they get up; this is when they unlock the doors and prepare to teach jazz band, an activity that is not part of the academic day. Fifty students arrive at McRay’s band room to begin tuning up at 6:30. Fifty. They are committed to an extra-curricular activity before school because there are so many competing priorities after school. There are also 50 “chauffeurs”

up and out the door to get their musicians to rehearsal on time. Students participating in the high school jazz band were so numerous that Bousfield had to split them into morning and afternoon groups. These women direct the symphonic, concert and marching bands, the eighthgrade Bulldog band, the two seventh-grade bands and the sixth-grade bands, often coteaching to maximize performance, not to mention time spent preparing for district and state solo and ensemble festivals. Losing “one half” of McRay would severely hinder the progress these programs have made. That the high school jazz band performed at the Mason School Foundation fundraiser speaks to their caliber. The symphonic band was so good that they earned division one ratings at the district level. This doesn’t happen by accident. I am convinced that if they competed at state, there would be a sign at our city limits stating “Mason High School Symphonic Band,

State of Michigan Division I, 2011,” as there are for sports teams that have made great achievements. But because the program is so accommodating to other extracurriculars, particularly sports, the band was not able to travel to state competition. Imagine just one day without music. No movie soundtracks, no suspenseful music on your favorite TV shows, no radio stations, no iPods. Imagine a football season or a holiday parade without a good marching band. And what about “Thursday Night Live” performances? I work at MSU, and universities too face deep budget cuts, but can you imagine a Spartan football game with a mediocre Spartan Marching Band? We realize the school board has a difficult task, but why cut something that contributes to the overall quality of life in “Hometown America?” We support the Mason bands — it takes two.

MASON — Mason Public School’s Early Learning class is carried on a great tradition in late April by performing a circus, a program performed by many Mason kindergarten and Early Learning students for more than 20 years. Sue Cousins’ Early Learning students have been honored to host the circus since the retirement seven years ago of the late Margaret Brown Doolittle from Mason Public Schools. Doolittle had been actively involved in helping with the circus since her retirement, but this was the first circus without her. Doolittle passed away her memory. The circus honor of the dedication she enjoyed performing it and this winter, but the circus has been renamed “Doolit- had given to the circus and the parents who watched. tradition continues on in tle’s BIG TOP Circus” in all the students who have — From Mason Public Schools

Timely Tips for Hiring Remodelers Red Flags For Identifying the Unprofessional Remodeler Doesn’t have a license or insurance. All remodelers should be able to demonstrate evidence of both. Doesn’t write contracts. Without a clear written plan, it’s difficult to know what work you are both agreeing to complete. Expectations should be agreed to in writing. Requires payment in full prior to starting the job. It’s reasonable for your contractor to ask for payment up front to purchase materials for your job. Shady contractors demand full payment and may leave with the money. Vastly underbids other contractors. If a bid is way lower than everyone else’s it may indicate inexperience or a method of cutting costs that severely affects quality. Cannot provide references. Professional remodelers will always be able to provide the names and phone numbers of past customers. How to Evaluate A Home Remodeler’s References


Before you sign a contract with a home remodeler, ask them to share with you the names and phone numbers of customers they have worked with in the past. Here are several questions to ask the previous customers: ( .,=6+ 2,= @>#) ?@>! -,0?#4-?,# 4"4>0/ ( '>+ ?@) #)3,+)6)# 34>0?4>0 4 0)4? 40+ -6)40 ;,1 !>?)/ .4! 466 +)1#>! @4=6)+ 4842 >0 4 ?>3)62 $4!@>,0/ ( '>+ ?@) -,0?#4-?,# 9))& 641,# 40+ 34?)#>46 +)642! ?, 4 3>0>3=3 !, ?@4? 2,=# ;,1 84! !?4#?)+ 40+ -,3&6)?)+ ,0 ?>3) 40+ 8>?@>0 1=+")?/ ( .)#) ?@)2 )4!2 ?, 8,#9 8>?@/ '>+ ?@)2 9))& 2,= >0$,#3)+ 4! ?@) ;,1 &#,"#)!!)+/ ( '>+ ?@) #)3,+)6)# !=&&62 2,= 8>?@ &4&)#8,#9 ,0 4 ?>3)62 14!>!/ ( 7,8 8)66 +>+ ?@) -,0?#4-?,# 8,#9 8>?@ 2,= ,0 &#,16)3! ?@4? 4#,!)/

Mason junior Katie Smith lets a shot fly during the Bulldogs’ 3-0 win over Battle Creek Lakeview in the girls soccer regular-season finale on May 16. ALAN HOLBEN/FOR LCN

Mason on win streak Scott Yoshonis

MASON — Mason has fin-

into the open net to make the final score 3-0. Previously, Mason wrapped up the CAAC Red title with two wildly dissimilar wins, a tough 1-0 win at Jackson Lumen Christi, in what was the de facto league championship game on May 10, and a formality of a league finale, 12-0 over Sexton at home on May 12. “It was awesome to win the league,” Hursey said. “It was great for our seniors. We’ll cherish that, and then head on to the Cup and look forward to the tournament in a few weeks.” The CAAC Gold Cup tournament began with the Bulldogs facing East Lansing on May 19, after this paper went to press. The winner of that game will play either Williamston or Holt in the Cup semifinal on Tuesday, May 24, for the right to face either Okemos, DeWitt, Eaton Rapids or Lumen Christi in the CAAC Gold Cup final on Thursday, May 26.

Living with arthritis pain? Time to show it who’s boss. Studies show that moderate physical activity — the kind that gets your heart rate up and keeps it up like walking, biking, or swimming — can actually reduce pain and stiffness, and improve your mood. But it’s more than just keeping busy, you need to get up and get active at least 5 days a week for 30 minutes each day. You can even do it for 10 minutes, 3 times a day. In just 4 to 6 weeks you’ll notice a difference. Get physically active and show arthritis who’s in charge.

ished its girls soccer season with a record of 14-2-1, and on a six-game winning streak, the last of which was a 3-0 win over Battle Creek Lakeview on May 16. Kaleigh Lound scored twice and Sam Houchlei had the other Bulldog tally in a game that was never really in doubt. Mason head coach Christy Hursey said that she liked what she saw, as her team prepares for the CAAC Gold Cup. “I thought we played really well today,” Hursey said. “I thought we connected a lot better, we finished a lot better, but we still have some things to improve before the Cup next week.” Mason dominated possession from the outset, but didn’t create many good scoring chances until the last 15 minutes of the first half, when Abby Meirn-

dorf sent an inch-perfect through ball into the path of Houchlei on the left wing. Houchlei deftly pulled it back to her right foot and blasted the ball inside the far post to make the score 1-0. The two almost combined for a second goal three minutes later, when a Meirndorf corner kick was blasted off the near post by Houchlei, but Mason did get the second goal soon after. Lound ran on to a long ball, turning on the afterburners to race past a helpless Lakeview defender, putting it past the onrushing keeper with one touch and slotting it home with the second, making the score 2-0 with 6:28 left in the half. Lound finished off the scoring with 16:48 left in the game, when Jordan Young sent her into the Lakeview penalty area with a diagonal ball. Lound again beat the keeper to it, and rolled it

MASON — Mason went into its Division 3 girls tennis regional with a bit of momentum, after winning its third CAAC Red championship in the past four years, and their second consecutive outright title. The Bulldogs swept the league dual matches, and tied with Jackson Lumen Christi atop the league tournament, which Lumen hosted on May 12. Mason won all four singles flights, with Emily Hall, Jessica Swanson and Stephanie Norgaard taking flights two through four, respectively. Seniors Brianna Fassezke and Huntar Martin won the second doubles title and Jessi Blask and Alanna Kulhanek took first-place points in third doubles for the Bulldogs. The team will also go in as underdogs to win the regional, behind the tournament host, Haslett, according to Mason coach Jim D’Angelo. “They’re the favorites going into the regional.

his team an idea of what they needed to do to beat Haslett, possibly the best team in the area this season. “It was important, because we wanted to see where we stood against them,” he said. “We knew that they’re very, very good, we knew that the depth of their singles is better than the depth of our singles overall. “Our singles are good, but their singles is unbelievable.” The regional was held on May 19, after this paper went to press. On paper, the Bulldogs were favored to finish in the top two in the tournament and qualify for the state finals, but D’Angelo is careful not to take anything for granted. “I wouldn’t say that we feel comfortable,” he said. “You just never know. “If you have an off day things can go wrong and you can lose some matches you think that you might have won on paper. “You still have to make it happen.” If Mason did finish in the top two, they will play in the state finals at Kalamazoo College on June 3-4.

As a four-year varsity letter winner, Emily has helped her teammates to a 22-2 dual meet record over the past four years. She is the girl’s track team’s top pole vaulter and 400 runner, and she anchors the mile relay team. At the Bay City Western Invitational, Emily topped her own school record in the pole vault, making a height of 10 feet. She is also a team leader and very versatile, having competed in half of the available events in track and field at various times.


Emily has also earned 8 varsity letters in Sideline and Competitive Cheerleading. She has been awarded MVP and Coaches awards. She was on the state qualifying Competitive Cheer team and has been All League and All District. She plans on attending Olivet and studying business and physical therapy.

“I don’t see why they wouldn’t be,” D’Angelo said of the ninthranked Vikings. “For us to beat them in any of the flight, we’ll have to play very, very well, because they’re the real deal.” This is despite winning six of the eight flights at the CAAC Red tournament, led by freshman phenom Abby Perkins. Perkins breezed by Lumen’s Aimee Griffin in the top singles flight, 6-0, 6-1 in the flight championship match. D’Angelo said that his team’s experience, and not just the talent of newcomer Perkins, is the key to their success this year. “All the other girls have worked hard for the last couple of years, even if they’re not quote-unquote USTA players, to try and improve,” he said. “The effort and work to improve by the juniors and seniors has made our depth really good all year.” Mason also has the extra motivation of having lost to Haslett in a non-league dual match, 3-5, on May 9. D’Angelo said that match gave

Charter Township of Delhi Sanitary Sewer System Revenue Bonds (the "Bonds") pursuant to the Revenue Bond Act, Act 94, Public Acts of Michigan, 1933, as amended, for the purpose of defraying all or a portion of the cost of acquiring, constructing and installing certain improvements to the Township’s sanitary sewer system, including, but not limited to, the construction of facilities to dewater and dry the Township’s sludge to reduce transportation and disposal costs related to sanitary sewage disposal, as well as all other necessary and related improvements, the acquisition of necessary rights in land, and engineering, bond issuance and financing costs. The Bonds may be issued by the Township in one or more series, the aggregate principal amount of which will not exceed $5,500,000. The Bonds will be payable primarily from revenues derived from rates and charges received from users and customers of the Township’s public sanitary sewer system, and will be payable in not more than thirty (30) annual installments at an effective rate of interest to be determined upon sale of the Bonds not to exceed six percent (6.0%) per annum, payable on the unpaid principal balance from time to time remaining outstanding on the Bonds. The total cost of the sanitary sewer system improvement project is estimated to be $5,500,000, all or a portion of which cost is to be paid from the proceeds of the Bonds. The project may be constructed in one or more phases. SOURCE OF FUNDING The State of Michigan, through its Department of Environmental Quality, makes funds available for municipal water supply and sewer disposal system improvement projects at a below-market interest rate (currently 2.50% per annum) through a Clean Water State Revolving Loan Fund administered through the Michigan Finance Authority. The Township will seek to finance all or a portion of the entire project cost through bonds issued through said Clean Water State Revolving Loan Fund. SOURCE OF PAYMENT OF BONDS THE PRINCIPAL OF AND INTEREST ON THE BONDS shall be payable primarily or solely from the net revenues derived from the operation of the Township’s public sanitary sewer system remaining after payment of operation and maintenance expenses. Said revenues consist of rates and charges for services, including connection fees, which rates and charges are required to be maintained and increased from time to time in order to provide sufficient revenues to meet expenses for operating and maintaining the sanitary sewer system, anticipated principal of and interest on bonds, and to provide reserves for payment thereof. A schedule of the rates and charges is on file in the office of the Township Manager of the Charter Township of Delhi, 2704 Aurelius Road, Holt, Michigan 48842 (phone 517-694-2137). ADDITIONAL SECURITY - FULL FAITH AND CREDIT PLEDGE In the event the Bonds are sold to the Michigan Finance Authority, and/or in the event certain state or federal financing is received for the project costs, the Township is authorized pursuant to the Revenue Bond Act to pledge its full faith and credit for the repayment of the Bonds. In this event, the Township would be authorized within its charter tax rate limitations to levy such taxes or advance such funds from the general funds of the Township as might be necessary to prevent or cure any default in the repayment of the Bonds resulting from an insufficiency of revenue derived from the operation of the Township’s public sanitary sewer system. Although it is not anticipated that the Township will ever be required to advance funds, the Township would, in the event of an advance, be entitled to be repaid from the next sanitary sewer system revenues available after correction of any deficiency or default. NOTICE OF RIGHT OF REFERENDUM THIS NOTICE is given pursuant to the requirements of Section 33 of the Revenue Bond Act, Act 94, Public Acts of Michigan, 1933, as amended. If within forty-five (45) days from the publication of this NOTICE OF INTENT to issue Bonds a PETITION signed by not less than TEN PERCENT (10%) OF THE REGISTERED ELECTORS residing within the limits of the Charter Township of Delhi shall have been filed with the Township Clerk requesting a REFERENDUM on the question of the issuance of the Bonds, then the same shall not be issued until approved by the vote of the majority of the electors of the Township qualified to vote and voting thereon at a general or special election. The current number of registered electors in the Township is 17,759. Further information regarding the public sanitary sewer system improvement project and the Bonds described herein is available at the office of the Township Manager of the Charter Township of Delhi, 2704 Aurelius Road, Holt, Michigan 48842 (phone 517-694-2137).
