Leslie OKs budget

LESLIE — The Leslie operating millage will remain the same — 16.6 mills — under a 2011-12 budget passed by the City Council on June 7. The general fund (city operating) budget is $1,165,112, with the overall budget at $2,714,644. City Manager Brian Reed said the city remains in good financial condition, with staff aggressively managing its budget for the future. “We were able to balance the budget this year without major cuts, but it is getting more and more challenging to do that,” Reed said. One reason the budget was balanced, he said, is that the city has operated without key staff for significant periods of time. For example, it has been operating without a Department of Public Works director and also has pushed back maintenance and repairs. However, Reed mentioned some points of concern: • The city will lose about $50,000 in property tax revenue because of falling property values.

AURELIUS TWP. — Numerous snack bags of potato chips lined the tops of the bookshelves at the North Aurelius Elementary library on June 7. Chips are one of the favorite snacks of retiring North Aurelius Principal Gina Stanley, who was honored by staff and the community at a crowded reception. “That’s a big joke,” Stanley said, referring to the chips. In fact, on Bosses Day, she said, her Potato chips are a love of North Aurelius’s Gina Stanley. CHRISTIE BLECK/LCN See STANLEY, Page 3

MASON -— The city of Mason has focused on many areas of growth in recent years, with housing redevelopment, a new city hall/ police station and street improvement being just a few. Although there has been some emphasis placed on culture, that realm might be the next focus. The City Council on June 6 discussed the possibility of creating an Arts and Culture Commission. City Administrator Marty Colburn acknowledged that some arts-related activities have been undertaken in the city, including the Thursday Night Live! concerts at Courthouse Square, the Sundried Music Festival and the placing of a bust of Mason’s first governor, Stevens T. Mason, at city hall. Colburn said the Mason Area Historical Museum and the library have been involved in cultural efforts as well. There also has been talk of having an old-fashioned mural painted on one building in the downtown area and the American Legion creating multiple statues representing veterans of various wars. However, these efforts have not been concentrated

into one commission, and that’s what the city is considering. How it would be handled and who it would involve, though, is unclear. “I’m not suggesting the city go create a commission to create more workload,” Colburn said. Colburn said the city needs “workhorses” who understand culture. The city, he pointed out, doesn’t have the staff to concentrate on this area, so people such as artists and historians could be the ones spearheading the effort.

An ‘asset’

That’s an asset the Michigan Municipal League is promoting as a desirable part of a community, Colburn said. Councilwoman Barb Tornholm said the League See ART, Page 4

MASON POLICE REPORT Between May 31-June 6, Mason police investigated 74 reported incidents involving a variety of activities. These are some of those incidents. For a full report, visit

Unlocked truck taken

May 31: An officer responded to the 500 block of Hull Road for an automobile theft report. The victim stated he left his pickup parked in the lot with the doors unlocked and the keys sitting on the center console. When he returned one half hour later, the pickup was gone. The victim reported walking the entire lot and not finding it. The vehicle has been identified as stolen in the state- wide data base, and the investigation remains open.

Tree threat removed

May 31: Officers responded to a dangerous situation on N. Rogers St. where a large tree, damaged by the storm, was an imminent threat to fall onto a house, endangering all those inside. The supervisor on the scene noticed the tree splitting down the trunk as he watched and determined the residents, including two dogs and a pet bird, needed to be evacuated from the home before crews would even consider removing the tree. Evacuation was completed, and the work initiated.

Protest unsuccessful

May 31: An officer responded to the skate park after a report of a male riding his bicycle inside the skate bowl, a violation of park rules and city ordinance. The offender was discovered and identified as a repeat offender. Although he denied committing the act, the eyewitness was on the phone with the officer and in sight of the interview. When he received the citation, the suspect reacted by yelling protests and slamming his bicycle onto the sidewalk, causing it to tumble. It did no good, as the officer did not take the ticket back. The department will begin the procedure to attempt banning the suspect from the skate park, as is its practice in dealing with repeat offenders.

their baby for no apparent reason, punched holes in the walls and threw things around. The male stated he was angry because his girlfriend came home two hours late, her sister is living with them and the sister is very disrespectful to him. He added that on this date his girlfriend threw an alarm clock at him. The sister stated she did not see an assault, and the officers did not see any evidence indication that an assault had taken place. The male left for the night and both parties were advised of recourses they might pursue. or confirmation later.

Essay assignment

June 1: While patrolling near Bond Park, an officer witnessed a male juvenile riding a bicycle inside the skate bowl, a violation of park rules. Upon seeing the officer, the cyclist tried to flee but did not get far. During the interview, the officer was told a variety of reasons for the juvenile’s actions, but it finally came down to the young man knew the rules, which was why he fled at seeing the officer, but admitted never reading them and he was not truthful with his explanations of ignorance to the officer. The offender was given two options as consequences for his actions: to receive a $50 ticket or to write and submit a one-page essay explaining why he should be truthful with the police. The young man, who reported being a good student, opted for the essay. The officer released the youth with a due date of June 6 to submit the paper and a promise his parents would be notified of the incident.

Sibling spat

June 2: Officers were dispatched to a domestic dispute between brother and sister. They found the purported victim outside, stumbling around in the street, with a cut on his face and a scraped elbow. The alleged suspect reported her brother got drunk and became argumentative. She added that when she threatened to call the police if he didn’t leave her alone, the purported victim said he would report she assaulted him and then began striking himself in the face several times. Three adults a crowd The victim was also found to have a breathJune 1: Officers were dispatched to a domes- alcohol level of .32 percent and medical assistic dispute at a Mason home. The female stated tance was summoned. No arrests were made her live-in boyfriend was yelling at her and and the report will be referred to the Ingham

Budget Continued from Page 1

The city also lost $87,000 in state revenue sharing, although part of that amount may be restored if Leslie can meet state mandates. • Both major and local street money declined due to shrinking gas tax revenue and the city population loss. • The special fire station debt millage will increase from 0.6 mills to 0.99 mills because of declining property values.

Overall, general fund expenditures are budgeted to fall by about 14 percent, Reed said. But it will cost the city nearly 44 percent more to operate the swimming pool, he said. The pool was set to open June 10. According to the recent city newsletter, the pool needs substantial repairs, and the city applied for a grant from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Land and Water Trust Fund to overhaul the facility. The city likely will find out about the grant in August. It costs nearly $70,000 every year to operate and maintain the pool, with annual revenue of $20,000 coming from memberships,

County prosecutor for review of charges. The victim was left under medical supervision for treatment of injuries and detoxification.

Moving-day theft

June 3: A resident reported a theft of a computer hard drive and a bicycle seat from the front porch of his residence. He stated the computer and a bicycle were on the front porch as he drove back and forth during moving day and while the property was unattended, someone took the seat off the bike and removed the hard drive from the computer tower. The victim was more concerned about identity theft than the loss of the hardware. The matter remains open.

Road rage erupts

June 6: Officers and Ingham County deputies responded to a road rage complaint that occurred along Cedar Street from Ash to Buhl. The complainant had pulled into a parking lot to await police and the suspect was last seen northbound on U.S. 127. The complainant reported driving northbound, approaching Ash on Cedar, and having the green light when the suspect turned off of westbound Ash in front of him onto northbound Cedar. The complainant stated that he had to brake abruptly and swerve into the left lane as he passed Ash, to avoid a collision. He added that as they both headed north, the suspect pulled into the left lane proceeding north in front of him. The complainant admitted to gesturing his dissatisfaction to the suspect driver and eventually changed lanes, noting the suspect had been on the phone the whole time. With this, the suspect then changed lanes in front of the complainant and spiked his brakes, causing the complainant to suffer another near miss. The complainant went on to report the suspect then held up a handgun in a holster and put it down, and then held up the handgun again, without the holster, in plain sight for the complainant to see. The complainant stated it was at that time he decided to pull over, park and call the police. Deputies caught up with the suspect on U.S. 127 near Jolly Road. After a brief interview, the suspect surrendered his firearm, reported he was a concealed pistol license holder and Continued on page 5

daily passes and contributions. The bulk comes from the general fund. Rates for this year are: single resident, $60; single non-resident, $70; resident with one or two children, $100; non-resident with one or two children, $130; resident with three or more children, $150; and non-resident with three or more children, $180. Water and sewer funds are in good condition as the city prepares for major capital improvements, Reed said. “We have continued to manage our resources very conservatively,” he said. “But it does eventually have an impact that our residents will see as we continue to try to do more with less.”

office is filled with them. A “potato chip tower” at the event even came with the sign, “Your leadership ‘chip’ and friend ‘chip’ will never be forgotten.” Stanley spent 34 years with Mason Public Schools, teaching at Alaiedon Elementary and the former Cedar Elementary before becoming principal at North Aurelius in 2002. “Thirty-four years,” Stanley said. “It’s time for the next adventure.” Stanley said she will miss the kids and “all the funny little things they do.” Their enthusiasm made an impression on Stanley — “When they walk in the door every day, smiling, happy to be here,” she said.

Stanley said she is proud of the systems put in place in her tenure for students who need support, such as the Success Learning Center and Response to Intervention. Her students will miss her too. Second-grader Hayden Cheney said he will miss “her smile.” Karis Foster, another second-grader, said, “I like that she’s kind and loving to us and cares about us.” Classroom composite photographs, gifts and handmade table coverings signed by students all attested to Stanley’s popularity. Said one note, “Thank you for helping us learn and grow.” Mike Prelesnik, currently assistant principal at Mason Middle School, will take over North Aurelius principal duties next school year.

similar to Mason and size and scope,” Droscha said. Mayor Pro Tem Michael Waltz, though, cautioned the city not to rush into creating an Arts and Culture Commission as city staff is “maxed out” on duties. As someone who was involved in bringing the Mason bust to city hall, Waltz said that effort required a lot of administrative legwork. Droscha said that he believed the Thornapple Arts Council, involved with Hastings, is a self-funded group and a separate entity. According to its Website, the Thornapple Arts Council of Barry County was as an all-volunteer organization until 1998 when a part-time managing director was hired. It now has a full-time executive director and a part-time program coordinator. “It’s all a balancing act, I realize,” Droscha said, “but it’s a positive thing to be considered, I think.” Tornholm said regarding bringing together the city

Singers interested in a multi-generational community choir are wanted to sing at a community church service at noon Sept. 25 under the direction of Rebecca Scofield, Leslie High School choral director, singing an arrangement of “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” as well as one other familiar hymn. Practices will be from 3-4:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11 and 18 at Congregational United Church of Christ, 116 W. Bellevue, across from the gazebo.

and such commissions, “These organizations can be structured to be cooperative with each other and not be exclusive.” Mayor Leon Clark also had some reservations, explaining the city is having a hard time filling other commissions now. “I’ve heard people talk, but I haven’t felt that ‘swell’ yet,” Clark said of the possible arts and culture group. Colburn, however, said efforts should be placed on capturing the “gifts of the community.” “The real key here,” Colburn said, “is to just get the discussions going.” In a June 7 telephone interview, Shirley Renwick, program chair of the Mason Art Guild, said infusing more arts into the community would be great. “Certainly we could talk about it,” Renwick said. Renwick said local residents love the Thursday Night Live! concerts. “It feels good to have the town doing stuff like that,” she said.

MASON POLICE REPORT agreed to return to the Mason Police Department for an interview. The suspect was later released, but his pistol and concealed pistol license (CPL) were seized. A copy of the police report will be submitted to the Ingham County prosecutor for review of charges and to the Concealed Weapons Board for review of and possible revocation of the CPL. FRAUD ALERT: The department has been notified that some Internet scam perpetrators, who direct their victims to Wal-Mart to conduct money transfers, now provide guidance regarding countermeasures to Wal-Mart’s anti-fraud tactics. The target victims of these financial scams are instructed to send money by wire transfer from Wal-Mart stores, with the false promise of receiving significantly larger sums of money in return. WalMart trains its employees to ask money-wire customers

if the money being transferred was solicited through the Internet, among other questions intended to determine whether the money-wire customer is the intended victim of a cyber scam. If evidence of fraud is elicited, Wal-Mart employees will terminate the transaction. Now, scam perpetrators continue to recommend WalMart’s money services but advise victims that if they are asked, they should claim they are wiring money to family members and specifically deny that the wire transfers are in response to an Internet solicitation.

Bulldog soccer team loses in regional semi

Ladywood box and found Harrison open on the left side. Her left-footed blast just missed the far post. The Bulldogs had their best chance of the half on a free kick from about 40 yards out on the left side. Brooke Dippel sent a long ball into the box, and found Abby Meirndorf at the far post, but her volley forced Blazer goalkeeper Madeline Reed to make a diving save at the base of the post. With the Bulldogs pressed forward for the set piece, Ladywood scored on the counterattack, when DeYana Walker took a pass from Kelly Capoccia just inside the 18, teed it up for

her left foot and gave Mason keeper Emily Bartlett no chance, tucking the ball inside the left post to make the score 1-0 with 15:39 left in the first half. The Blazers scored again less than four minutes into the second half on a ball sent over the top of the Mason back line. As calls for offside went unheeded, Capoccia gathered the pass all alone, and again Bartlett was left helpless on the calm finish that made the score 2-0. Amber Denomme replaced Bartlett in the Bulldog goal with about 18 minutes left in the game, and was immediately victimized by Ladywood’s third

goal, on a diagonal pass that carved open the Bulldog defense and was put home by Walker for her second of the game, that made the score 3-0 and effectively ended it with 14:48 left on the clock. After winning its first district title in six years, Hursey hopes that her team can build on its success next season. “I think everyone can see the level that we have achieved, and I really hope that they strive for more next year,” she said. “I think it’s possible (to advance past regionals) and I think they’re capable, but not if they play this way.”

Hursey said she was frustrated with her team’s effort in the game. “We did not play our best soccer tonight,” Hursey said. “We turned the ball over too much, we played too sloppy and they beat us to every ball. We were a little bit of heart short tonight.” Mason resisted wave after wave of Ladywood attacks before finally putting a spell of possession together in the attacking third halfway through the first half, when Lound found some space at the top of the

CHELSEA – Mason ended its girls soccer season with a record of 18-4-1, after falling 3-0 to Livonia Ladywood (15-3-6) in the Division 2 regional semifinal at Chelsea on June 8. Previously, Mason won its first girls soccer district title since 2005 with an impressive 3-1 win over East Lansing in the tournament championship game on June 3. Christine Harrison scored two goals, Kali Barry had a goal and an assist and Sam Houchlei had two assists in the district final for the Bulldogs, who defeated East Lansing twice during the regular season and controlled possession for virtually the entire contest. Mason was forced to come from behind, however, as the Trojans opened the scoring when, against the run of play, Maddie Hulse found some space on the right-wing side of the Mason box and blasted a right-footed shot just inside the far post to give the Trojans a 1-0 lead, which they held at the half. Mason again took the play to East Lansing after the break, and the Trojan defense held fast until

Barry found some space on the left wing. Barry’s cross found Harrison at the near post, and she made no mistake with a first-time finish that tied the game 1-1 with 27:02 left in the game. Mason took the lead when Houchlei placed a perfect pass on the ground in the Trojan box to a wideopen Harrison, whose easy far-post tap-in gave Mason a 2-1 lead with 9:48 left in the game. Lound and Houchlei started the play that resulted in Mason’s third goal, a nifty 1-2 on the right wing that sprung Houchlei toward the goal. Her cross to the far post was chested in by Barry with 6:27 left in the contest to make the final score 3-1. Mason head coach Christie Hursey came just short of saying that this was as well as her team can play. “You always want to think that they can play better,” she said, “but I thought we had a really good game, and I’m encouraged as we head into regionals. We haven’t played great soccer this week, but we really brought it tonight.”

Every morning my arthritis tells me to stay in bed.

Fortunately, I’m in charge. Is arthritis keeping you from living the life you want? Then take charge with moderate physical activity. Sure, it’s not easy, but studies show that getting your heart rate up and keeping it up, at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, helps reduce the pain and stiffness from arthritis. It also improves your mood. But it’s more than just staying busy, so pick an activity like walking,

MASON — A youth tennis program will take place at the Mason High School tennis courts for players ages 5-18 starting Tuesday, June 14. Classes are structured to encourage stroke development and fun. The older players will focus and point situations and stroke development. Classes will focus on players developing their style of play and learning strategy based on their style. The younger players will use special nets and tennis balls geared for the younger players so they can rally more quickly and start playing points earlier. The program will use the QuickStart Tennis curriculum developed by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), which uses lower compression balls. The low compression balls bounce lower and more slowly, which allows younger players more time to get to the ball and develop swing patters. Schedule: • Ages 4-7, Tuesday and Thursday, 5:30-6:15 p.m. This age group will have two classes. The Junior Stars are players relatively new to tennis. The Junior Hitters have a little more experience and will focus more on rally skills. Cost is $50 for a four-week

Watching wildlife frugal — and worth it

Taking the Marshland Wildlife Drive to view Northern flora and fauna, I admit, was not the most demanding wilderness trek I could have made while visiting the Seney National Wildlife Refuge recently. Still, all I need to enhance my hobby of wildlife watching is a good set of eyes (which I complement with a really sweet pair of binoculars). This time of year (late spring/early summer,

depending on whether you go strictly by the equinox/ solstice thing or the human thing of considering June the start of summer) I step up my wild observations. Birds are migrating back from warmer regions, not tanned but in bright plumage (the males shamelessly use their gaudier feathers to attract susceptible females for mating). Wildflowers and grasses are growing, and soon I should see bats dart around at dusk,

This is a pair of trumpeter swans at the Seney National Wildlife Refuge in the Upper Peninsula. Their heads are stained from dipping them into the water. CHRISTIE BLECK/LCN

CHRISTIE’S CHRONICLES Christie Bleck decreasing the local insect population. What I like about wildlife watching is that it’s relatively inexpensive and can be accomplished anywhere. While enjoying a cookout last year with the Mason Sycamore Creek Garden Club at Laylin Park, I noticed a green heron lurking by one of the ponds. If you’ve ever seen a green heron, you’ll understand what I mean when I say lurk. It seems to have a hunched-over, sinister appearance, although I’m sure I was out of danger, not being a fish. This sighting was not expected; I had come to the cookout to learn what the Garden Club had accomplished and to score some really good homemade food (success on both counts). I’ve gone on more hard-

core wildlife trips before, the journeys that require good hiking shoes and preferably head netting and a pith helmet (OK, that helmet’s sort of just for show). But with time a factor a few weeks ago, the sevenmile Marshland Wildlife Drive was a fairly easy way of covering a lot of ground in a short amount of time. It did not disappoint. Trumpeter swans are fairly common there — so common, in fact, that I was starting to get blase’ whenever I saw one (“ho hum, another trumpeter”). My traveling companion and I also saw what turned out to be the source of much of our conversation: beavers. Dave snapped a few photos of the suspected beavers, one of which I passed on to a naturalist-friend, who confirmed the blocky, swimming head was indeed indicative of a beaver-like presence. So what’s to see this time of year in the non-wilderness environment of Lansing, East Lansing, Mason and the surrounding areas? Tiger swallowtails are

always spectacular — large, yellow butterflies that sometimes stop to unknowingly pose for me. Soon the fragrant common milkweed will flower. The victim of an unfortunate moniker, the milkweed has a white, milky substances that oozes from its stems when pressed (I’m guessing that’s where the name comes from). But that’s not what impresses me the most. The pinkish flowers are so fragrant I’ve often wondered my perfume makers haven’t caught on to the

scent and found a way to bottle it. There are just a few examples of the local flora and fauna making themselves more known now. So, I highly recommend a trip along the Hayhoe Riverwalk, or even your own backyard, to see some really cool natural stuff. It shouldn’t cost much. Wear a pith helmet if it adds to the experience. Christie Bleck is editor of the Ingham County Community News. She awaits her first 2011 sighting of a hummingbird moth.
