Mason schools ‘Yonkers’ comes to Mason count down

By CHRISTIE BLECK cbleck@lsj.com

MASON — New York accents and dialogue written by noted playwright Neil Simon will fill the Mason High School stage Nov. 18-20 as students perform “Lost in Yonkers.” The play will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Mason High School Auditorium, 1001 S. Barnes St. Vocal/drama teacher Helen Hansens said the play centers on a family in Yonkers of which the grandmother is a German-Jewish immigrant. “She raised her children in the United States, so each of her adult children has a little quirk,” Hansens said. Although she acknowledged that there are comic parts in “Lost in Yonkers,” the production is unique for the high schoolers because they’re digesting experiences well beyond their years. Hansens said she had to work with the actors so they could access those experiences. For example, Abi Combs, who plays the grandmother, had to learn a German accent. “One of the things I’ve said is, ‘talk with your parents and talk about the losses you’ve had in your life,’”

MASON — The recently released fall membership count for Mason Public Schools is cause for concern among board members and staff. The official unaudited count, which took place Sept. 29, showed a full-time equivalent count of 2,935.34 for the district for 2010-11, down from 3,027.08 in 2009-10.

Kindergarten sees big drop

Mike Hyatt (left), J.J. McCarty and Olivia Hayhoe rehearse a scene from Mason High School’s production of “Lost in Yonkers.” Hansens said. Zach Riley, who plays Eddie in “Lost in Yonkers” — his seventh Mason High School production — said he’s playing a character who has a “lot kept inside him.” Riley, however, is enjoying the experience. “It’s really great, and it’s been a very new path, I guess,” he said, “with trying to figure out my character and trying to figure out his story.”

If you go 7 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Nov. 18-20 Mason High School auditorium; (517) 244-6416

Other principal actors include Mike Hyatt as Jay, J.J. McCarty as Arty, Olivia Hayhoe as Aunt Bella, Myah VanWormer as Aunt Gert and Stu Shattuck as Uncle Louie. The cost is $8 for adults and $6 for students and

seniors (there will be no charge for seniors with an Gold Pass available in the school’s Family Services office). For tickets, visit www.showtix4u.com or the Family Services office, or call (517) 244-6416.

A particularly big decrease came in kindergarten, from 226 last school year to 167. At the school board’s Nov. 9 meeting, Vice President Ralph Beebe said that drop “struck” him, and Superintendent Mark Dillingham agreed. “It was a shocker at 167,” said Dillingham, who expressed hope that number eventually would rise to 180. Dillingham surmised that some parents held back their children who would have started kindergarten, instead placing them in pre-school or Early Learning programs. Dillingham also pointed out that since 2000, the birth rate in Michigan had declined 21 percent in Michigan. Total state aid for Mason is $19 million, or 70 percent of the district’s budget, Dillingham noted in a Nov. 10 e-mail. A total of 23 percent comes from local revenue, and 7 percent comes from the federal funds. The district originally budgeted for a loss of only 57 students this year, Dillingham wrote. “The loss of students represents about $145,000 in state funding. Fortunately, Mason will be able to use EduJob’s money (stimulus dollars) from the federal government to offset the loss of students this year.” The EduJobs money, according to Dillingham, eliminated the need to take the money out of fund equity or to implement budget cuts this up to this point in the school year.

Student of the Month

The Kiwanis Club of Mason has named Ben Uebelhart the Student of the Month. Nominating science teacher Kathy Omillian said, “Ben Uebelhart of Mason High School has been a very mature, positive, contributing member of our chemistry class. He is always prepared for the day, coming in with a great attitude and kind smile. Ben has demonstrated time and again his dedication to learning. It is evident that Ben leaves school and spends time at home studying and reviewing his material. He is quick to volunteer to help solve a problem, answer a question or ask a question when necessary. He is well prepared for tests, projects, and daily work. Ben is also a student who is willing to help out his peers. He is good at rephrasing information as he explains chemistry to his peers. He is always willing to help out.”

hen I tell people I am a librarian, there are two common responses. One is “I love the library! You must enjoy your job,” or something similar. The other response is less positive. Sometimes I receive a blank look followed by a question along the lines of “Does anyone even use the library anymore, now that we have the Internet?” The answer to that question is most definitely “Yes!” In fact, use of the Dansville Library’s materials and services is higher than ever. While people still borrow and return books, other types of media also receive very heavy use. Movies, music and audiobooks are extremely popular with our customers of all ages. The popularity of eBooks and audiobooks also continues to rise dramatically, as electronic access makes it possible to

til today, no one has risen against the administration and attempted to stop this deprivation of our right to have fun in school. Join me today as we take small and harmless steps to fight back.” The originator also referenced infamous British rebel Guy Fawkes and the movie “V for Vendetta” — both, which involved blowing up British Parliament. All in all, more than 180 friends connected with the originator who identified himself as “V Guy Fawkes” and frequently referenced segments of the movie and the “gun powder revolution.” Eventually during the numerous posts, the question of whether the originator intended to blow up the school was put forth. This caused some concern that things may have gone too far, and it was decided that on Guy Fawkes Day, Nov. 5, the school would be checked for suspicious containers to ensure student and faculty safety. The Michigan State University Public Safety Department provided two bomb-detection dogs that went through the building before opening and found nothing.

The positive in all this — besides being assured the school and its occupants were safe — was that the students began arriving while the dogs and handlers were still on the premises. The students and staff had an opportunity to meet and interact with the dogs and the handlers, and the officers on the scene reported a very positive and educational experience for everyone.

Judge looks into case

Nov. 5: Officers were contacted by state of Michigan Child Protective Services (CPS) workers regarding a Mason man who had just been in the Ingham County 30th District Court and pleaded guilty to child abuse first degree (Michigan Penal Code Act 328 of 1931; Section 750.136b (2): A person is guilty of child abuse in the first degree if the person knowingly or intentionally causes serious physical or serious mental harm to a child…). He was released on a conditional bond, which forbade contact with any child under the age of 18. The CPS caseworkers had information that the convicted felon was violating the conditional bond by having contact and residing in the same Mason resi-

dence as his two children. Officers and caseworkers went to the home and confirmed the man had been in contact with the children and allegedly lived next door in another apartment unit. When investigators went to locate the suspect, they saw a man they thought to be him duck inside the door as they approached. When no one answered the door — not having established enough information the person inside was indeed the suspect — the investigators left. The suspect later called the department to explain he was residing in a city north of Mason and would stay away from his children. He was told CPS was taking the matter to the presiding judge to determine if the terms of the bond were violated.

Having a ball

Nov. 6: An officer was dispatched to a medical assist call where a child had his hand lodged in a bowling ball return. By the time the officer arrived, the child was free and his parent planned to take him to seek medical treatment. No police action was called for.

Trio cited

Nov. 6: An officer respond-

ed to a complaint of trespassers inside the Bond Skate Park. He located three violators who claimed that a youngster from the neighborhood said it was all right, but the officer took a skeptical approach and pointed out the trespassers’ ages, the clearly displayed signs and locked gates around the park as a notice the park was closed and it was not OK to be inside. The trio received city ordinance citations for violating the posted park hours and was released.

Odor a giveaway

Nov. 6: An officer was contacted by a neighboring police agency and told they had a person wanted in Mason on a stop and wished to turn the suspect over. A meet was arranged, and custody of the prisoner was transferred. On the way to the jail, the officer reported detecting an overwhelming odor of marijuana that was not present prior to the prisoner being placed into the car. This, and the fact the officer had searched the squad car as part of the pre-patrol regimen all officers are directed to conduct prior to his shift, led the officer to believe the suspect possessed marijuana. When presented with these facts, the suspect ad-

Nov. 8: Officers were sent to an intoxicated, suspicious person in the downtown area. While responding, the officers were told that the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office had received multiple complaints throughout the day regarding the suspect. Officers found the suspect and determined he was intoxicated. Rather than continue to deal with an ongoing and time-consuming problem, the officers found out where the suspect was trying to go and saw that he got there. The matter was closed with a quick ride to his destination. REMINDER: Pursuant to city of Mason Ordinance 78-6, parking is prohibited on city streets from 2-6 a.m. Nov. 1-May 1.

Nov. 7: An officer received a call from a woman regarding a car that was reported stolen by the victim’s drug dealer Nov. 1. The victim had alleged becoming incapacitated from heroin and awakening to find his car gone. The woman caller stated she had heard about the car being reported stolen, disputed the victim’s accounting of the incident and later — upon meeting with the officer — produced a title and signed receipt from the alleged victim saying $300 had been accepted in exchange for the car. The new owners — the caller and her boyfriend — reported having made a down payment of $200, and then the final $100 balance when they took possession of the car. She added that the car was purchased for her son who had been driving

Methodist church offering clothing bank By CHRISTIE BLECK cbleck@lsj.com

MASON — It might be one of the better-kept secrets in town, but the women running the clothing bank at First United Methodist Church of Mason don’t see it that way. They see the bank as a valuable resource of which more people should take advantage. The clothing bank, which has been operating in some form since 1967, currently is open from 1-3:30 p.m. the first Tuesday of each month at the church, located at 201 E. Ash St. The mission is the same: providing folks in need with suitable clothing. “They’re trying to reach a different part of the population who really needs the clothes,” said Pat Mentzer, who is involved with the bank. Another community member connected with the bank, Claudia Ireland, said it’s more organized now as items are sorted by size. “Before, we just hung everything up and stacked everything,” Ireland said. Also, off-season clothes are stored away from current-season clothes, she noted.

“I feel that we are doing something that is worthwhile.” — Pat Mentzer, clothing bank volunteer Mentzer said they’re trying to make the clothing bank more accessible to people. “I feel that we are doing something that is worthwhile,” she said. Ireland said both church members and non-members donate clothes (hours are 9 a.m.-3 p.m. weekdays).

Clothes distributed throughout area

The clothes sometimes make it out of the local community. Another woman involved in the bank, Ina Lyon, said men’s clothes are donated to the open-door ministry at Central United Methodist Church in Lansing. Ireland said that brandnew children’s clothes (with the tags still attached) are taken to Angel House, a children’s advocacy center and shelter for teen mothers in Mason. “We also take into account whether teenagers would like them,” Ireland said.

News in brief Van Atta’s to hold wreath-making classes

November 14, 2010

Van Atta’s Greenhouse & Flower Shop will hold two holiday wreath-making classes at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30 and Wednesday, Dec. 8. There is a class fee of $25, and attendees are encouraged to bring pruners and their preferred add-ons such as ribbon, décor, etc. Each class will be limited to 20 people. To register, visit www.vanattas.com or call (517) 339-1142. Van Atta’s is located on Old M-78 in Haslett.

According to Ireland, children’s clothes are needed the most, while Mentzer said boys clothing in sizes 8-16 and XXL men’s jeans are needed as well.

A new clientele

Working a clothing bank means hearing many personal stories. Mentzer said one woman is putting three kids through college and really needs the second-hand clothes. Another visitor to the bank is an unemployed man studying to be a paramedic. Lyon said they’re seeing many of the “new poor” who now need help. Christie Bleck “A lot of people don’t want to come down for Ina Lyon (left), Claudia Ireland (center) and Pat Mentzer want the community to know about First United Methodist Church of Mason’s clothing bank. help,” Ireland said.

The real SSG: Brad Eifert is my hero

I thank all who have sent their encouraging thoughts and prayers to my husband SSG Brad Eifert; and a special thank you to my parents, family, Ms. Barbara Jackson of DeWitt and to VFW Post 7309. Many have read or seen TV reports about the events in connection with my husband’s arrest and incarceration. Please do not judge, publicly berate and convict my husband. He is a great father, husband and soldier. I am writing not just for my family but for all who have been exposed to public condemnation. Community support for my husband is appreciated and reveals how much people care. VFW Post 7309 in Mason will host a fundraiser be at 1 p.m. Dec. 11 to raise money for The Brad Eifert Veteran’s Relief Fund. My husband has served for eight years in the U.S. Army. His Military Occupation Specialties (MOS) for the first five years of service was Cavalry Scout with the 1st Battalion 8th Infantry Regiment. He served two tours of duty in Iraq and received four hash marks for his combat service. He received the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary medal for service from 2003-04, a Campaign medal with two stars for service in 2006-07 and a Combat Action badge. After returning from his second tour in Iraq in 2007, he began a three-year recruitment assignment. During this assignment he received highest honors. Since returning from Iraq he sought his own personal

psychological help to deal with various Post Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms (PTSD). Since 2007 he has tried to work through and cope with these symptoms and voluntarily used the Veterans Administration, receiving counseling. If he were living and working on a military base these services would be immediately accessible. In July of 2010 Brad was officially diagnosed with PTSD by military staff doctors at Fort Knox, preceding his medical discharge from military service. Since his incarceration, his medical board status has been placed on hold and he remains active military. The U.S Department of the Army revoked his payroll as of Aug. 16. While I realize he is being held at the Ingham County Jail, facing charges, he has not been convicted of a crime. While I have great faith in our justice system, I believe that he has not been considered innocent until proven guilty. Furthermore, my fears grow daily that he is not receiving any of the assistance an honored combat veteran should receive. While the events of that day are under investigation and his lawyer is working to seek justice, I am thankful that my husband is safe and alive. My heart goes out to all the men and women who have fought for their

country, and for those that have been wounded physically and carry with them both outward and inward scars. I have great respect for all the men and women who serve and have served our great country. I did find some interesting information concerning another “soldier” being held in a County Jail in Texas; an article from ABC NEWS.COM

reported another soldier is still receiving his pay. If this is true, why would the Department of the Army so quickly condemn and financially revoke my husband’s pay? My heart, thoughts and prayers remain with SSG Brad Eifert, my husband, best friend and teammate. Michelle Eifert and her husband live in Okemos.

Editor’s note: SSG Brad Eifert, 35, was taken into custody Aug. 9 in a wooded area after firing several shots near his Okemos home. He was charged in 55th District Court with five counts of assault with intent to commit murder and is incarcerated in the Ingham County Jail on a $125,000 cash bond. He has been ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation to determine whether court action should proceed. His family and his attorney say he is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome as result of his military service in Iraq.

Young Scribes cancer found in women. To help raise awareness, Leslie Middle School had Pink Day on Oct. 25. That day, teachers and students wore pink to support breast cancer research. Students brought in quarters to donate to the American Cancer Society. Principal Carol Franz said, “We’re doing pink day to help raise awareness and raise money to help the research.” After the money was counted, Leslie Middle School raised $213. Mrs. Freeman’s fifth-grade class brought in a $50.50, which was the largest amount from any class in the building. As a prize, they got to vote on what silly pink thing their teacher would wear for a day. These included things such as a pig nose or a tutu. A total of 201 students and staff wore pink. Franz said, “I think pink day was very successful, and hope to make it an annual event.” — Written by Jessie Ruiz and Kimberly Driksna

Rollover crash investigated

Help at Rayner

MASON — At 7:01 a.m., Nov. 9, Mason police officers, assisted by Ingham County Sheriff’s deputies and Michigan State Police, investigated a single vehicle rollover traffic crash on northbound U.S. 127 at the Cedar Street overpass. Investigation and witness interviews established that the vehicle had made an abrupt change in direction, causing it to roll over three times before coming to a rest on the shoulder of the roadway. The 22- year-old female driver, the only occupant

of the vehicle, was ejected through the rear window. The victim, Ashley Griese of Lansing, who was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, was taken to Sparrow Hospital and was listed in critical condition at press time. Family members were been notified, and the crash is under investigation. Officers noted poor visibility because of fog at the time of the crash, and the area is a frequent deer crossing. — From the Mason Police Department

Potter Park Zoo announced the death of Vladimir, a 16-year-old male snow leopard.

Zoo mourns leopard “It’s always very difficult to make the decision to euthanize any rare species,” Brady said. “Our staff and visitors can be comforted by the fact that Vladimir lived a long life and brought joy to many people over his 16 years.” Vladimir was born July 18, 1994 at the Sunset Zoo in Manhattan, Kan. He arrived at Potter Park Zoo in October of 2008. Vladimir was part of the Snow Leopard Species Survival Plan (SSP) sponsored by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Potter Park Zoo works closely with other AZA zoos to enhance and help conservation efforts of snow leopards around the globe. Snow leopards are an endangered species found from Western Mongolia to Northeast Pakistan and Bhutan. A secretive animal, the snow leopard lives mainly in mountain ranges and is specially adapted to live in colder climates. Potter Park Zoo is located at 1301 S. Pennsylvania Ave., within Potter Park along the Red Cedar River. The zoo is open daily year-round, winter hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, call (517) 483-4222 or go online at www.potterparkzoo.org. — From Potter Park Zoo

LANSING — Potter Park Zoo announced the death of Vladimir, a 16-yearold male snow leopard. “The snow leopards are a favorite among our zoo visitors,” said Zoo Director Gerry Brady. “Vladimir will be greatly missed by everyone in the community.” The animal care staff and veterinarians from Michigan State University decided to euthanize Vladimir after test results confirmed the condition of his declining health. Unfortunately, he did not respond to treatment. As standard procedure, a necropsy was performed by veterinary pathologists from the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health at MSU. “We knew that Vladimir’s poor health conditions were related to his advanced age. Both his liver and kidneys were severely compromised,” said Dr. Jim Sikarskie, MSU’s Zoo and Wildlife Veterinarian and the zoo’s back-up veterinarian. “We made the right decision for the right reasons at the right time. We are sad that he is gone but glad that he lived such a great life”. The average life expectancy of a snow leopard in the wild is about 12 years; while with the quality of care given by accredited zoos such as Potter Park, they can live to be 15 years or older.

Merindorf Meats taking part in hunger program LANSING — Since 1991, the Michigan Sportsmen Against Hunger (MSAH) have been working to create linkages between donors, wild-game processors, and charities that feed needy individuals. The Mid-Michigan Food Bank is a recipient again this year. Merindorf Meats and More of Mason will be involved in the program. MSAH is an all-volunteer grass roots organization and is led by sportsmen and women concerned about making a positive difference in the community Together, they have assembled a network of processors and charities across Michigan to help channel wild-game donations into the hands of those in need. Michigan leads the nation in hunting license sales. Thanks to participating pro-

cessors, in the 2008-2009 hunting season MSAH helped facilitate the processing of more than 32,800 pounds of venison into nutritious meals for needy families all across Michigan. Support of this program is a vital contribution to their mission of “recycling” natural resources into opportunities for a better community. Go to Sportsman Against Hunger at its website, www.sportsmenagainsthunger.org For more details, visit www.midmichiganfoodbank.org.

Sports Bulldog harriers third in state tourney By DICK HOEKSTRA dhoekstra@lsj.com

BROOKLYN — Mason coach Charles Miller thought Ionia was going to repeat as Division 2 state cross country champions when runners went past him with a quarter-mile to go on Saturday at Michigan International Speedway. But the effects of fighting illness and a 102-degree body temperature then took its toll on Ionia junior Nick Wharry. And teammate Connor Montgomery — who had gone out faster than ever before — began to falter. Montgomery slowed down, got a little wobbly, fell and eventually crawled to the finish line in 117th place in 16:59. Wharry ended up 130th in 17:05. “If Connor and Nick are up there with Don Blight (a senior who was 12th in 15:53) like they usually are and were earlier in the race, we win,” said Ionia boys coach Chris Young, whose team finished fifth. “I never would have let Nick run if I had known he was that sick, but he didn’t tell me. It’s hard for them, because they wanted it for Don. But they’re both juniors, and they’ll be back.” With six out of seven runners achieving personalbest times, it appeared No. 2-ranked Mason was poised to grab the title. But third-ranked Grand Rapids Forest Hills Northern finished 55 points in front of Mason. “We were so keyed on Ionia since they were No. 1,” Miller said. “Yet I told the guys that Forest Hills Northern, when they got their (second) runner back, might just pass us both. “Still our guys ran great, we peaked at the right time,

Soule finished with a time of 19:21. and for a young team to finish this well is exciting.” Mason was led by sophomore Alex Whitmer, who made All-State while finishing 17th in 15:59. Any runner who finishes in the top 30 in each of Saturday’s eight races earns All-State recognition. “I wish we had won, but I am glad we placed so high,” Whitmer said. “At the beginning of the year, our goal was to just get here as a team.” Mason had taken fourth

in its regional and missed qualifying as a team a year ago. Whitmer was the only member of his team who had run in a state meet, having advanced as an individual in 2009. And there are no seniors among Mason’s top seven, which also included all-state sophomore Tanner Hinkle (28th in 16:09) and freshman Mason VanDyke (33rd in 16:13). Another Mason runner, sophomore Cassidy Hass, re-

It feels good that the hard work paid

off.” Hass’s time will be on display on the Fieldhouse wall, as it broke the school record by 13 seconds. Freshman Abbey Soule also qualified for the state meet, placing eighth among freshmen in the race with a time of 19:21. “As a coach you hope your

runners have their best performance at the state meet,” Mason girls’ coach Jamie Latimer said. “The girls this year far exceeded my expectations, both having a nearly 30-second personal record.” Ingham County Community News sports writer Scott Yoshonis contributed to this story.

MASON — DeWitt held Mason, one of mid-Michigan’s top rushing attacks, to less than half its average yardage, and quarterback Caleb Higbie nearly outran the No. 7 Bulldogs by himself as his team pulled away for a 24-14 victory — and its seventh district title in the past 10 years — Nov. 5. The loss ends Mason’s season with a record of 9-2, and deprives them of both their first-ever district title and their first-ever 10-win season. Bulldog head coach Jerry VanHavel said that the result was just. “It’s just two good teams, just a good game,” VanHavel said. “Neither team did anything surprising to the other. It’s just they’re a little better and they made a few more plays early than we did. And I thought our offensive linemen were outstanding in the second half. It really took

a toll for a while. But it grinds clock and when you’re down, you’ve got to score quickly.” Quarterbacks such as Higbie have dominated most conversations about DeWitt football over the past decade. And he might be the best of a recent all-state bunch. Higbie was excellent again at Mason. But the No. 5 Panthers’ defense played at least an equal part in winning one of the state’s most-anticipated district final matchups. A Week 9 loss to St. Johns made DeWitt look potentially vulnerable to Mason’s running attack. But that instead may have prepared the Panthers more for this game. “We knew that their plan was going to be to run it down our throats,” said DeWitt senior linebacker Dylan Keener, one of three Panthers with 12 tackles. “We came out with a lot more fire. We came out ready to go. St. Johns was definitely a lesson to us, and we learned from that. ... We’ve definitely got a

lot more confidence in ourselves.” Not only did DeWitt (10-1) earn another game, but after two road trips to start the playoffs, the Division 3 regional final this weekend will be at home thanks to Harper Creek’s 38-21 win on the other side of the bracket. The Panthers got a jump Friday when Higbie ran for a seven-yard score six minutes into the game, and then hit twin brother Jacob Higbie with a 20-yard scoring strike less than three minutes later. That proved to nearly be enough, thanks to the defense. Although area leading rusher Saylor LaVallii ran for 80 yards and two touchdowns, the Bulldogs (9-2) ran for just 129 yards total — slightly less than half their usual output on the ground. But Mason didn’t back Matthew Dae Smith for LSJ Media down. LaVallii’s second scoring run brought his team Mason’s Jon Geer (80) runs against DeWitt’s Ryan Wieber during the Bulldogs’

within 21-14 with 7:32 to play. “Defensively, we did not get off to a good start ... but when we settled in, we did a great job,” VanHavel said. “A big game like that, you’ve got to play well all the way. But Mason kids don’t quit. We played hard the whole way.” Jacob Higbie made the play that finished the job. He attempted and connected on DeWitt’s first field goal of the season, from 25 yards out, to make things just comfortable enough during the final three minutes of the game. Caleb Higbie threw for 170 yards total and ran for 125. Jacob Higbie and junior linebacker Ethan Rennaker both added 12 tackles. “Our kids are going to be really excited to play at home because we’ve

been pretty good there, and we’ll be excited for the challenge,” DeWitt coach Rob Zimmerman said. “But I think the last two weeks that we’ve played awfully good. “We’ve made some mistakes, but they’ve dug down and done the things they need to do to win football games. And that’s all that matters right now.” VanHavel said that he told his team that they have nothing to hang their heads about. “The message (after the game) is I love our kids, I respect our seniors forever,” VanHavel said. “They’re great kids. We’re a good football team but we didn’t play our best tonight. DeWitt played outstanding and they deserved to win. We just love our kids and we’re proud of what they’ve done, proud of their efforts and proud of the fact that they competed for 48 minutes.”

EATON RAPIDS — Robbins United Methodist Church took the message of Pastor Mark Payne seriously on Sunday morning, Oct. 10. After three Sunday messages that called for the people to put their faith into action, the church postponed their morning worship celebrations until noon so they could go out into the surrounding communities to serve. More than 100 people went to six locations. Some went to the Eaton Community Hospice House to help clean and organize the Thrift Shop, as well as get the grounds ready for winter. Another group went to the Eaton County Medical Care Facility to serenade the residents with old standards and gospel music. One of the volunteers even danced with one of the residents.

You deserve a rapid recovery from your hysterectomy. A robotic-assisted hysterectomy offers most women numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to hysterectomies, particularly with more complex procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecological cancer. Women undergoing robotic-assisted surgery typically experience: • Significantly less pain and fewer complications • Less blood loss and a decreased risk of infection • Less scarring • A shorter hospital stay (as short as a single day for total hysterectomies) and dramatically-decreased recovery time • A quicker return to normal daily activities Sparrow is mid-Michigan’s leader in robotic-assisted surgery.
