From basswood to bust By CHRISTIE BLECK

INGHAM TWP. — Surrounded by chisels, mallets — and the ever-present Italian music — Dansville carver Emma Malcangi takes inert chunks of wood and turns them into lively works of art. Last month, Malcangi placed in a top competition, the International Woodcarvers Congress in Maquoketa, Iowa. She earned second places for her carving of an Indian for group (realistic bust) and class (bust). Vic Hood of Fairview, Tenn., a wood-carving instructor familiar with Malcangi’s entry, said the piece was excellent because it “wasn’t static.” “It’s got a lot of expression in it, and a lot of feeling to it,” Hood said. Malcangi, 74, who lives in a rural area on Columbia Road, started wood carving in 1987, studying under her mentor, the late Georg Keilhofer of Frankenmuth. One of her first creations was an Italian castle, Castel del Monte, which she displays in her living room along with other religious wood carvings she’s completed, including a large crucifix and a statue of St. Francis of Assisi. Malcangi won the Governor’s Choice Award from the Michigan Wood Carvers Association in 1995 for her St. Francis carving, but it was her Indian bust that catapulted her to international acclaim. The creation, of course,

Desire essential

Although she studied with Keilhofer for eight years and read books on the subject, Malcangi’s ability to create art from wood

came from within herself. It’s like music, she said. “Actually, you have to want to do it,” Malcangi said. “You have to have the desire.” Unlike other modern wood carvers who use power machinery (it’s quicker, she explained), Malcangi sticks with the European classical method. “It’s a dying art, because I don’t use power tools or sandpaper,” Malcangi said. After all, it’s how Michelangelo made his carvings, so there must be something to be said for the ancient method. “You’re doing it for the

MASON — You don’t have to live in Texas to be informed about oil and gas leases. Ingham County MSU Extension is putting on a workshop, “Things to Know Before It Flows, Information You Should Know Before Signing an Oil/Gas Lease” from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, July 8, at the MSU Pavilion at the intersection of Mount Hope and Farm Lane in East Lansing. The cost is $10 per person. Extension educator Dan Hudson said the purpose of the program is to help local landowners understand what they need to do to be sure that any oil/gas lease contract they make is written in a way that is mutually beneficial. Hudson said that standard contracts generally are written in a way that’s not as advantageous to the landowner as it could be. “There are many points in most contracts that landowners should be sure are rewritten to reflect their needs and interests,” Hudson noted. Landowners, he said, should keep in mind these questions: • Will they be charged for any of the expenses incurred by the company during exploration? • Will roads/driveways be returned to original condition after exploration and extraction is completed?

• What fraction of the revenues will the landowner get? “These and many other aspects of the contract are negotiable, and it will pay to be informed,” Hudson said. According to Hudson, landowners might not think that the content of this workshop even really applies to them, since nobody has tried to get them to sign a contract. The fact is that many who own land in Ingham, Jackson, Eaton, and Clinton counties will probably be contacted by representatives from oil/gas companies in the near future, according to Hudson. Bruce Noel, a Leslie farmer who also owns land near Jackson County and is a member of the Innovative Farmers Group, is in oil/gas lease negotiations regarding that property. Noel said he is worried about others being in a similar situation. “Sometimes I’m afraid they’re signing documents that are very involved,” he said. Noel said he plans to attend the workshop.

said, such as chip, caricature and chain carving. She acknowledged her way differs from those methods. “It does take longer,” Malcangi said, “but it’s an original. It’s hand-carved.”

It’s in the details

Carving the delicate features of faces, hands and feet is difficult, Malcangi said, because of all the anatomical details. For example, facial features have to be proportioned with each other and lined up correctly, with a face being divided into three parts before carving begins. Malcangi uses basswood for her carvings because the wood, unlike pine, doesn’t

have knots. “You don’t want a knot in the face,” she pointed out. Malcangi stains most of her carvings and uses German wax on them as well. However, it’s the intrinsic value that’s an important part of each piece. Otherwise, it’s just a hunk of wood. “Every carving has to tell a story, or it should,” said Malcangi, pointing to one of her pieces, a carving of a monk with a smirk on his face, holding grapes on his way to make wine. Malcangi doesn’t sell her work, but still derives satisfaction from the art itself — and the constant learning that goes along with it. And like Michelangelo, she said, artists don’t always feel accomplished. “It’s an ongoing process — if one wants it to be.”

Letters to the editor Beer tent clarified

Thank you for the article regarding the beer tent and the Ingham County Fair in the June 20 Ingham County Community News. I do need to clear up one comment made by Commissioner Andy Schor. Yes, patrons of the beer tent will only be able to purchase two beers at a time, but it is two beers per trip to the bar. Patrons will be allowed to make as many trips to the bar as they wish to purchase up to two beers or until the bartender says “you have had enough.” Don Vickers Ingham County Commissioner

False complaint

My husband and I recently had a visit from the Ingham County Animal Control. Our neighbor is upset that Tom had his name on a current police report (barking dog complaint made out on the neighbor’s dogs) which has been ongoing for two years. The officer had a report that we had too many pets and our house and backyard smelled of feces. I was told that I could have has many pets as I wanted and no feces smell was evident. All complaints were unfounded. Needless too say, the officer was visibly upset that she was sent out on a false complaint. Anybody that calls animal control falsely should be cited. The Ingham County Animal Control is understaffed and underfunded. It has numerous more serious calls to respond to than false complaints. Tom and Vicki Whipple Mason

A town that cares

As I walked in to the social hall at the First United Methodist Church in Mason, I was treated to some of the sweetest music — not the music one would expect to hear in a church, it was not from a piano or an organ, but the sweet hum of several sewing machines and the chit chat of many happy women and men doing something they really enjoy: making quilts for the 119th Field Artillery that’s stationed in Charlotte, training to be shipped to Afghanistan in the near future. The quilts are 40 to 70 inches, just the right size to fit a single cot and not touch the ground allowing the bugs to crawl to the sleeping veteran. The material for the shell is made of red white and blue cotton that can be easily washed wrinkle free and filled with batten for warmth. The same sweet music can be heard at the All Saints Lutheran Church on South Street in Mason as well as in many homes through this patriotic city. Knowing that in Afghanistan the temperature ranges from 100 degrees during the day to near or below freezing at night, the citizens of Mason would like to give our veterans warmth for their bodies as well as the warmth of knowing the quilts were made with loving hands just for them. Between 150 and 200 have been made, with a goal of 200. Any person wishing to either help with this project, or make a monetary donation, may do so by contacting the office of either one of the churches. Charles Zanger Mason

Mason Community Garden gets greener By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — The cabbage is green, the corn stalks are growing and the marigolds are adding color to the plot of land along Jefferson Street by Maple Grove Cemetery. The Mason Community Garden, which officially opened on May 22, is getting greener and vegetables, fruit and flowers grow. The garden was created for local gardeners to grow produce for themselves and the Mason Food Bank. Of course, maintenance is of the utmost importance. “The grass clippings are a hit,” said Kelli Green, who with Jon and Amy Vincent coordinate the garden. The clippings, Green

said, were donated by the city. “It has proved itself that it’s keeping the weeds down and keeping the hose clean when we water the garden,” she said. (It’s easier to brush off dried grass from a hose than dirt, Green explained.) Green was at the garden on June 24, pulling weeds along the garden’s edge by the fence to keep it looking neat. Although some local residents might not be appreciative of the recent storms that produced heavy rain, that precipitation has helped the community garden, according to Green. “There’s a lot of pretty gardens over there,” she said of the various “subplots” that divided the entire garden.

Crops being tended at the garden include corn, tomatoes, cabbage, lettuce, carrots, strawberries, cucumbers and peppers. Flowers like marigolds, bee balm and lavender also are being grown. Green also credited volunteers with helping maintain the garden. For the Vincents, the garden, which includes 19 individual plots measuring 10 feet by 10 feet and the community plot measuring 30 feet by 50 feet, already has paid off. The couple is growing three varieties of tomatoes and a row of beans, among other vegetables, and already have harvested radishes. “The radishes were great,” Jon said. “Good size.”

GRAND LEDGE — Not everyone can drive a 35,000 pound, 40-foot-long vehicle designed to carry 71 passengers and have the wheels go within one inch of where they are supposed to go. But those who can take a lot of pride in their skills. Thousands of school bus drivers in Michigan do that, along with many other tasks, every day. And they do it while carrying 70 or so rowdy students and maintaining order at the same time. The top 38 school bus drivers in Michigan assembled at Grand Ledge Hayes Middle School in Delta Township on June 22 to show off their skills at the 33rd annual state school bus driving championship. The top drivers, winners of nine regional meets, competed in written and performance tests designed

to identify the best school bus driver in Michigan. “It is nice to bring the best of the best to Lansing and honor them as individuals,” said Karen Losch, executive director of the Michigan Association for Pupil Transportation. “We like to give them a chance to show off their skills.” Drivers were measured on their ability to perform a number of tests of their skills, including driving within one inch of a straight line without crossing it; making a right or left turn and coming within 3 inches of, but not hitting, a marker on the inside of the turn while not forgetting to signal properly; or bringing a bus to a stop within 3 inches of a line. Fifty volunteer judges watched as the drivers went through the various tests, counting and measuring and assessing penalty points for the inches by which they missed the marks.

One of the judges, former bus driver Dick Sheren of Grand Ledge, said he enjoyed all of the time he spent on the job, and still misses it. “I drove a bus for 18 years. I wish I could have for 35 years,” he said. The winner, a driver from Grandville, will go to the national championships in St. Louis in July. Losch said Dean Transportation will sponsor his trip to compete for the national title.

Right: Kevin Doty of Mason measures how close to a line a bus driver was able to bring her vehicle to a stop. To earn a perfect score in this test at the state school bus driving championships, held this year at Grand Ledge Hayes Middle School, drivers had to bring their front bumper to 3 three inches of the line without crossing it.

June quake recorded on prof ’s seismograph By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — It helps if you have a seismograph set up in your home. Local resident Ralph E. Taggart, who also is professor and chair of geological sciences at Michigan State University, happens to have one in his basement. That device recorded the 5.0-magnitude earthquake that hit the border of Ontario and Quebec on June 23. Taggart said his seismograph records earthquakes throughout the world. However, because the June 23 quake was relatively close to

the area, it produced a huge signal — the “biggest one I’ve ever gotten,” according to Taggart. “It was kind of fascinating,” Taggart said. The quake didn’t topple local buildings, but as Taggart noted, “People actually felt it in Michigan.” Mason might not be as earthquake-prone as, say, San Francisco or Los Angeles, but Taggart noted it rests on the Mason Esker. According to w w w. g e o . m s u . e d u / geogmich/eskers.html, an esker is a long ridge — an ancient river bed formed inside or on top of a glacier.

They are long narrow hills that resemble railroad embankments. Being on an esker, which Taggart called “essentially a big gravel pile” — probably makes it easier to feel earthquakes elsewhere, he said, particularly in the mid-continent region. Central Michigan, he pointed out, has a low probability of earthquakes, and local residents are more likely to feel events in neighborhood states or provinces. Taggart pointed out, “Although we can predict that some regions will be far more likely to experience earthquakes than other ar-

eas, the technology does not exist to predict when the next earthquake will occur, or how big it will be, in any particular place.” It made sense for Taggart, as a geological sciences professor at MSU, to have a seismograph at home. He said that because of being in that field, he ought to get acquainted with one. Taggart said his seismograph came from a kit, designed to be used in school science classes, obtained from a scientific supply company. “I have had mine running for almost a year and a half,” he said.

Keep your pets serene this Fourth of July MASON — The dispatchers of Ingham County Animal Shelter have been busy answering calls regarding lost pets due to the severe thunderstorms lately. Pets dart out gates and doors when they are frightened by the loud cracks of thunder and bolts of lightening. This is the same for the July 4 holiday as well. “We receive numerous calls the week before and after the July 4th holiday for lost pets,” Director Jamie McAloon Lampman said. The day after July 4 is often one of the busiest days of the year at animal shelters. Dogs can be found miles from their homes, frightened, confused, disoriented and exhausted. Many animals run away out of fear of the unbearable booms from the fireworks. They’ll hide from their owners until the noise subsides. The result is many frantic pet owners looking for their very frightened dog or cat.

The Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter is urging residents to make sure their dog or cat is safe this July 4. They suggest all pets have an ID tag on their pet or a micro-chip. If possible, pet owners could write their contact information on the animal’s collar. “Believe me, it works,” said animal care technician Gail Sinneave, who cares for more than 200 animals daily at the shelter in Mason. “We get pretty overwhelmed with dogs and cats who are obviously someone’s pet. It’s very rewarding to see a family be reunited with a lost pet after such a scary event.” Losing a pet is stressful for both the family and the pet, Sinneave said. “We can get pets back to their owners much sooner if they have some identification on them,” she said. Pet owners have described their dog leaping through a window or breaking their chain to escape the loud noises. A dog that would normally never dart

A black magic marker works well. • If you are considering tranquilizing your pet, consult a veterinarian well in advance. • Seek help from a professional animal behaviorist well in advance of the event. • Don’t leave your pet outdoors unattended. • Don’t let your pet be another statistic — protect them by being prepared. The best prescription for the Fourth of July lost animals is to keep your dog or cat indoors with you and your family during these stressful times.

HOLT — An Oakland County state representative is drumming up local support for a petition drive to allow Michigan citizens to opt out of the new federal healthcare law. State Rep. Tom McMillin (R-45th District) was at the Charlar Place on June 29 for a town hall meeting hosted by Jeff Oesterle, a Republican candidate for the 67th District house seat, which serves South Lansing, Delhi Township and rural Ingham County. McMillin said the Michigan Citizens for Healthcare Freedom’s petition drive, if successful, will put the healthcare issue on the November ballot. A total of 381,000 signatures are needed, with the deadline of July 5 for them to be turned in to the Secretary of State.

A fundamental right

McMillin explained the basic purpose of the petition drive. “Washington cannot get between us and our doctors, and we have a fundamental right to provide for our own healthcare,” he said. The petition proposes changes to the Michigan Constitution, and they include: • prohibiting government from restricting a person’s right to choose his or her private healthcare system or plan. • prohibiting government from interfering with a person’s or employer’s right to pay directly for lawful medical services. • prohibiting government from imposing a penalty or fine on those who choose to obtain or decline any healthcare coverage of participate in any particular system or plan. McMillin stressed that


the ballot initiative would not opt out Michigan. Instead, it would allow citizens to opt out, and those wishing to stay in the program could do so. “We should have the ability to see whatever products are out there and buy whatever we need for insurance,” McMillin said. Often called “Obamacare,” the president signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in March. The act includes stopping insurance companies from imposing pre-existing condition exclusions for children under age 19 and prevents the lifetime limits of health plans. However, some are suspicious of the bill. “We don’t agree with socialism,” Caroline Stiefel of Holt said. McMillin acknowledged that the question of a federal law trumping a state law has been raised. “My answer is: Amer-

icans love freedom,” he said. McMillin said he expects that even if the petition drive is successful, the issue will end up before the U.S. Supreme Court. If the drive fails, he said the effort would not be

dropped, and it would continue toward being placed on the 2012 ballot. State Rep. Barb Byrum (D-67th District) said via email, “As a small business owner, I am concerned about the increasing cost of healthcare and I believe

we should focus on making the new federal health care legislation work for everyone.” Oesterle said, “Citizens in Michigan ought to have the opportunity to vote on this, whether to participate or not.”

Children safe

June 22: Officers were summoned to assist Child Protective Service (CPS) agents who had a court order in hand requiring seven children — ages ranging from 3-8 years — staying at a Mason residence, to be taken into the state’s custody. The children were safely secured and removed from the premises by CPS.

Couch gets new home

June 23: An officer was dispatched to a larceny complaint where the caller reported her couch stolen. The complainant reported buying a couch from a man, which he left for her in the apartment building parking lot. The complainant added that the seller’s neighbors took the couch and wouldn’t give it back. However, it turned out the complainant didn’t contact the neighbors. The officer did, and the neighbors reported the couch was sitting next to the dumpster, so they surmised it was being thrown away and claimed it as abandoned.

Phone manners matter

June 25: Officers were dispatched to a call of a male and a female verbally fighting outside a Mason residence. It turned out that only the male was present, and he was yelling at his girlfriend over the phone because she had knocked the driver side mirror off his truck. He was advised not to yell over the phone anymore and assured the officers there would not be any problems when his girlfriend returned home later.

Unsportsmanlike conduct?

June 26: An officer responded to a sports tournament where an upset parent was causing a scene and being asked to leave. The complainant stated no enforcement action was needed, but wanted the parent to leave for the day and not attend the next day, either. When the officer made contact with the parent, the man apologized for his behavior but was insistent that he and other parents from the opposing team were being treated rudely by the tournament directors and officials. He was warned in regard to his disorderly behavior and agreed to leave and not return for the next day’s games. The officer agreed to speak with the complainant about the man’s accusations and did so. The complainant stated he would monitor the actions of the tournament officials.

Men in black

June 26: An officer was dispatched to a local business to assist with getting a disorderly person to leave. The suspect was described as wearing all black, having tattoos and looking like a “biker.” After the officer arrived, the complainant pointed out the man and explained that he had been saying inappropriate things of a sexual nature to two female employees and a customer, and that the victims were upset about his behavior. The suspect, when confronted, denied the accusations and stated the complainant was lying. He was even more upset when told he was banned from the store and would be arrested for trespassing should he return. Before leaving, he stated he would be calling the owner of the store to protest. Later investigation revealed he had behaved in a similar manner on other occasions as well. The case remains open.

Assault by broomstick

June 27: Very early in the morning, officers were dispatched to Sycamore and South Rogers Street where a drunk male was reported to be chasing another male down the street with a broomstick in his hands. The officers only located the broom-wielding party, who stated he had been drinking with another man who became upset when he asked him to quiet down due to the time of night. He went on to say that the other started “running at him,” which frightened him, so when his companion did it again, he grabbed the broom and hit him with it. The last he saw of the other man was him running down the alleyway. An officer asked if he would submit to a preliminary breath test, which he consented to. The result was a .217 percent blood-alcohol content. At the complainant’s request, the officers followed him home and watched him dump the rest of his alcohol. They then attempted to locate the other subject, as they

Sibling spat

June 27: Two officers responded to a threats complaint at a Mason residence. The complainant stated his brother had threatened to shoot him over a video game after returning home in a bad mood. The officers spoke to the other brother, who was apologetic about what he had said and stated he had just been upset because the video was a rental and his brother had left it where it could be scratched. If that happened, he would lose his deposit. He further stated he hadn’t meant what he’d said to his brother and wanted to apologize to him. The officers left after the brothers reconciled.

Driver cited

June 27: Just before midnight an officer was traveling westbound on Sycamore Street when he observed a vehicle in front of him with an expired plate. After being pulled over, the driver stated she was aware of the expiration. However, she couldn’t afford to pay for the plate. She also didn’t have a valid driver’s license and was cited for driving while license suspended-first, the expired license plate and no proof of insurance. She and her passengers were meeting with friends nearby, and the vehicle was left legally parked. Found property: Three bicycles, a T-Mobile cell phone, a man’s wallet and a set of keys with a flash drive. If you believe any of these belong to you, contact the Mason Police Department.

June 26: Two officers were sent to a Mason residence for a subject refusing to leave. An ex-girlfriend was at the complainant’s house arguing with him over money he had taken out of her account without consent. The complainant explained he had used the ex-girlfriend’s ATM to pay a bill for her. The female stated he had used it to pay for many other items as well, which were not authorized by her. The male said he had paid for a lot of things for her, and admitted he had probably spent too much on the card. He just wanted her to get away from and stop bothering him. The two were advised to stay away from one another, the male was given a personal protection order brochure and the female was given a ride home.

Defensive tactics rule; so might the carp Sometimes it’s fun to disagree with people. Make that a LOT of times it’s fun to disagree with people. Why? It’s fun to gauge their reactions. The silent treatment also is effective, but not nearly as fun. Normally I’m not that antagonistic. I’ve had it done to me, and believe me, seeing me on the defensive can be pretty ugly, making a Tasmanian devil on steroids look like a bunny on tranquilizers. To avoid my Taz-like reaction, I’ve developed several defensive adaptive methods for my tormentors: (a) Ignore them, or pretend like you’re ignoring them; (b) Physically leave the premises, which is easy to do unless you’re in a speeding car or bomb shelter when the mushroom cloud’s just forming; and (c) Disagree. In my previous job, I was forced to co-exist with socalled alpha males who I think were really insecure omega males in disguise, who needed to prey on the single female, a.k.a., The Easy Christie’s Target. It took me months, even Chronicles years, but I finally found a way to combat this: Take Christie the opposite stance, no matBleck ter how ludicrous. This is particularly fun with Far Right types. They really hate disagreement. I mean, really hate. They particularly were offended by my “alternative” (single) lifestyle, which, no matter how much I defended it (hey, I can watch “Rollercoaster” at 1:20 in the morning while eating Gerber Biter Biscuits uninterrupted) was not accepted. I was met with admonitions such as, “Time’s running out” (for what specifically, I was not told; I’m still alive, by the way) “You’re in denial,” “You’re your own worst enemy” and — my favorite — “I know how happy I (emphasis on “I”) am.” I should mention that two out of the three people who spoke these remarks later divorced. Anyway, I counterattacked the “I know how happy I am” dude with “That’s you. I’m not like that.” Then comes the silence, the lip twitch and the 20-minute pout.

Repeat if necessary. If that doesn’t work, go the Silent Treatment route. That makes them even angrier, and the lip twitch becomes a full-body twitch. It’s glorious. But sometimes a snappy comeback is in order. My brother is really good at this. One if his would-be responses to an intolerant type is: “I’ll tell you after I return from my evolution class with my rabbi.” My brother isn’t Jewish, but the desired effect is achieved.

Local is better

Strangely, in my travels through Mason, I don’t encounter much of this resistance so I don’t get a chance to try out my newfound silence/devil’s advocate stance. Maybe people have become more evolved over the last 15 years or they figure I’m so beyond redemption, why even try to antagonize? I mean, I wear Play-Doh-scented cologne and a Teletubbies watch on occasion, so perhaps they think they should steer clear of such a creature. Hey, folks, I’m basically harmless. Just don’t cross me. IN THE WE-TOLD-YOU-SO DEPARTMENT: A bighead Asian carp has been found in Lake Calumet along the Chicago Area Waterway System. It was the first physical specimen of the invasive species found above the Army Corps of Engineers’ electric barrier system. It didn’t take long for state politicians to react to this. U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow released this statement: “This evidence should be a wake-up call that this is an urgent situation for the Great Lakes. I strongly urge the Army Corps to close the locks now while they continue to determine the best way to permanently separate the Chicago Area Waterway System from the Great Lakes.” U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers also quickly released his statement: “The danger this signals for our Great Lakes cannot be overstated. These fish pose a significant risk to all fish and natural life in the Great Lakes, threatening the $7 billion in economic activity generated by Lakes fisheries, and putting Lakes boaters at great risk due to the erratic behav-

ior of the carp.” (I hear the big fish is quite the jumper.) Rogers also emphasized the urgency to close the locks immediately and for Congressional leaders and President Obama to take “quick and meaningful action.” Mason already has. The city council passed a resolution urging action to control the Asian carp, even though the town is in the middle of the state and not exactly on the shore of a Great Lake. With what little I know of the business world, it seems to me that an economic crisis dealing with Great Lakes natural resources eventually will impact the entire state. So, I understand being proactive on this issue. Nothing against the Asian carp — I like fish in all forms — but it belongs in the Eastern Hemisphere, not Mason or Lake Michigan. Christie Bleck is editor of the Ingham County Community News. She usually is not such a dark, malevolent person.

At Sparrow, we welcome new life every day. So when we created our vision, we thought about our smallest patients. They inspired us to set our sights high: to be recognized as a national leader in quality and patient care. To get there, we’ve made bold changes. Recently, Sparrow Hospital received Magnet recognition for nursing excellence—an achievement earned by only 6 percent of hospitals in the country. In addition, we have specialists you can’t find anywhere else in the region, like our pediatric intensivists and neonatologists who are specially trained to work with our youngest patients. And that’s just the beginning. To learn more about the inspired changes

Millage needed to keep library doors open Summer reading is well under way at the Leslie Library! Seeing the excitement in the eyes of the children who sign up is well worth the time and effort of getting them involved in the program. Not only are they keeping their reading skills sharp, they are enjoying our special programs related to the theme of “Make a Splash!” Be sure and check a schedule of all summer library events at, or stop by to pick up a printed one. At the The library can help in so many ways. One examLibrary ple is the mother who came in late one night looking for Barbara a jump drive, which her son Keeler had forgotten to tell her he needed for the next day. Remembering that we had a supply of these for patrons to purchase saved her a trip to the store. Computer help is another area where the library can be a valuable partner. We recently helped a woman learn to

use the computer so she could create a resume and apply for a job. Another patron learned how to search online and was able to find just the recipe she needed. Several people who have always been intimidated by computers have learned to use them by attending our free computer instruction classes. Others come in to use our free WiFi to access the Internet. Of course we are a valuable resource for book lovers, too. My husband learned how to download a book to his MP3 player so he could listen to a book to on his train trip to St. Louis. Then there was the husband who just discovered how expensive it would be to purchase all the books his wife likes to read. He used the calculator on the Capital Area District Library (CADL) Web site ( calculator) to figure out how much the library was saving him in dollars and cents, and was surprised at the answer. “The library needs the funding, doesn’t it?” he asked his wife. She replied, “It sure does — I’d hate to be without it.” He laughed and said, “Me, too!” It’s a timely story because our funding is coming up for

renewal. Many of you are aware that almost 90 percent of the funding for the CADL system comes from property taxes, collected as a millage. Our current millage has expired, and in order for the library to remain open, it must be renewed by the voters in our service area. Renewing the millage would not increase taxes. Voters would simply be agreeing to continue funding CADL at the current rate for the next four years. With these funds, the 13 CADL locations and bookmobile will continue to provide excellent services, collections and programs. Without them, our doors will close on Jan. 3, 2011. The vote will take place this Aug. 3. For more information, please visit, or pick up a brochure at the library. The Leslie Library, a Capital Area District Library, is located at 201 Pennsylvania St. For information about our hours, programs or services, call (517) 589-9400 or visit Barbara Keeler is the head librarian at the Leslie Library.

Mason alumna gets the call from the Hall By NEIL KOEPKE

MASON — Jackie Venier took an interest in horses and equestrian during her elementary school days in Mason. When she was in sixth grade, she took lessons at Massman Stables in Mason and a few years later, starting competing. And it didn’t take Venier very long to have success while riding Half Arabian horses in state, regional and national competition. At age 15, she finished first in reserve in the Michigan All-Arabian Region VIII championship in August, 1999, and two weeks later, she won two championships in the Arabian Horse Association of Michigan. “I always wanted to take lessons. When the Massman Stables opened up in Mason, I started taking lessons there and (after a year) started working with Leesa Massman, the owner,’’ said Venier, who graduated from Mason High School in 2002 and MSU in 2006. “I bought my first horse (Prompt) from one of her students, started showing him and it took off from there.’’ Venier went on to win several national, regional and state championships, along with numerous top 10 finishes in competition throughout the nation. “When I started working with Jackie, we had a long way to go and it wasn’t always easy, but I could see she had the components of becoming a champion,’’ said Massman, a nationally recognized trainer who coaches the MSU equestrian team. “She was very coachable as far as analyzing a performance and deciding what she needed to do to be better.’’ As one of most successful young riders in midMichigan, Venier was one of eight individuals and one team inducted into the Greater Lansing Sports Hall of Fame on June 24.

The Venier File Hometown: Mason Age/Current residence: 26/Royal Oak Sport: Equestrian (Arabian horses) High school: Mason, 2002 graduate; competed in swimming and equestrian College: MSU, degree in finance, 2006 Achievements: Michigan All-Arabian Region XIII reserve champion, 1999; Arabian Horse Association of Michigan 17-under champion, 1999; top 10 Arabian Youth Nationals, 2000; top 10 National Horse Show finals, 2000, in saddle seat; two top 10s in National Horse Show finals, 2001; national champion, Arabian Youth Nationals, 2002; reserve champion, National Horse Show Finals, 2002; 4 other top 10 finishes, 2002 NHS Finals.

Arabians challenging

Venier, who was nominated for Horsewoman of the Year by the Arabian Professional and Amateur Horseman’s Association in 2002, credits Massman for a big part of her success. “She provided me the tools to compete and succeed,’’ Venier said. “I’ve worked with different trainers but she’s the one that’s been there throughout my career.’’ Venier’s parents, Dr. James Venier and his wife Jane, played a major role, too, with emotional and financial support. “I’ve traveled all over the country for different events and they’ve been right there,’’ she said. “We’ve done our share of traveling.’’ Early on, Venier was attracted to Arabian horses, now one of the most popular breeds in America. They’re known for great energy, intelligence and beauty but still are a challenge. “It was exciting. As soon as I saw them, I knew it was what I wanted to do,’’ she said. Massman said Venier had the ability to understand the process in reaching her goals and related well to Arabian-Saddlebred

horses. “You always have the horse factor and her horses weren’t always easy. She had to work through team building with them and through some tough times,’’ Massman said. “But she handled it well and it helped her improve her skills. “The breed she chose is one of the most challenging. They’re very smart and have a lot of energy but finesse and patience are huge in showing that breed.’’ Several of Venier’s best memories came in 2002. She won a national championship in the Arabian Youth Nationals and was the reserve champion in the age 14-17 division in the National Show Horse Finals, both while riding Captive Moment. “I think the biggest win was being reserve national champion. That was an event in which I probably worked the hardest at put forth my best effort,’’ she said. “We had a lot of struggles with that particular horse. “I was really excited to win because I didn’t expect it. Winning (youth) nationals was great but it wasn’t

Jackie Venier of Mason talks to her Arabian horse Prompt, the first horse she ever owned, at the Ingham County Fairgrounds back in 1999. Venier was inducted into the Greater Lansing Sports Hall of Fame for her equestrian accomplishments on June 24. an event that we struggled with as much.’’ In the same year, Venier was nominated for Horsewoman of the Year in the halter event by the APAHA. She didn’t win but was simply proud to be recognized. “I felt honored to be nominated by other trainers and people I’m competing with,’’ she said. After graduating from Mason High, where she also competed in varsity swimming, Venier went to Mich-

igan State and cut back on competing. She earned a degree in finance at MSU in 2006. “Jackie is one of those people who is multi-talented. She’s an athlete but also highly intelligent,’’ Massman said. “Any athletic endeavor is difficult but with horses, you have to be dedicated to working with them every day and be responsible for their care. “She was always able to balance school, the swim

team and being involved with horses.’’ Now living in Royal Oak, Venier is a financial planner for Plante Moran Financial Advisors in Southfield and is pursuing an MBA from the University of Michigan. “I’m not competing at the moment,’’ she said. “But I’m taking lessons (at Mancini Training Center in Howell) to learn a new division and looking forward to getting back into competition as soon as grad school is done.’’

Landon Hidy made it a clean sweep, taking both the June 18 rained out feature make-up and the June 25 15-lap feature. Jordan Harvey led the rained out feature until Hidy got around him. Harvey was able to issue a challenge to take back the lead but Hidy was able to drive away in the waning laps for the win. The June 25 feature saw Kyle Drake come back with a stellar run after being caught up in someone else’s mess during the last Spartan Sunday show. Drake came from the rear of the field, challenged Hidy for the lead but couldn’t quite make it happen. However, Drake was able to run with Hidy to finish second. Harvey, Tony Marshall and Mark Carson rounded out the top five. Pony Stocks The Dukes of Hazzard had nothing on Patrick Denison on the last lap of the Boss Snow Equipment Pony Stock feature. Aaron Taylor, a third-

generation driver, took the early lead when the green was displayed until Denison jumped into the outside groove and drove away from the field. Wayne Beckner Jr. steadily picked off cars as he worked his way to the front. By lap 14, Denison, Beckner and Todd Metz Jr. were running in tight little pack when Metz and Beckner got together, ending their evening. On the restart, Denison and Metz Sr. were on the front row, with Darren Wright jumping into the fray. Coming down the back stretch, Metz Sr. tapped Denison, turning him sideways. Denison corrected and headed through the infield, jumping the first berm over the Figure 8 straightaway, came down, hit a smaller berm over the go-kart track, came down and got launched over the other side of the gokart track, only to end up leading coming out of turn four. Metz Sr, had slowed for

the “merging” traffic coming down for the checker and Wright capitalized on the outside, taking away the second spot. Metz Sr., Rich Roberts and Marisa Jones rounded out the top five. Joe Bates took another B-feature win after Brandon Moody had led for 11 laps. Moody and Bates ran sideby-side for several laps, with Bates taking the lead away from the outside with nine laps to go. George Garza got around Moody as well to finish second. After 20 laps, it was Bates, Garza, Moody, Tyler Heeney and Scott Sparagowski as the top five. Wayne Beckner Jr. and Rich Roberts took the rained out A- and B-feature wins from June 18. Friday, July 9 is a MOD 50 for the Valvoline Instant Oil Change Modified division. The Pure Stocks, Boss Snow Equipment Pony Stocks, and Legends will also be featured. Michelle Sprague covers motorsports for LSJ Media.





Valvoline Modifieds Dan Loughan, showed the way for the Valvoline Instant Oil Change Modified division, leading the first 15 laps of their feature, until an altercation brought out the caution, and John Mamula capitalized from the outside on the restart. Mamula went into the lead, but Tom Hernly Jr. was steadily moving up through the field and tacked himself on to Mamula’s rear bumper by lap 20. Nyle Weiler and Dan Loughan were battling for third when caution waved on lap 23. Mamula chose the outside lane for the restart, leaving Hernly to challenge for the lead from the inside, once the green was displayed. Hernly took the lead, leaving Mamula to try and take back the lead. At the checkered, it was Hernly, Mamula, Larry Wallace, Weiler and Sonny Coito. Bill Heeney Jr. and Brad Lamberson each won their heats.

Gallagher. On the restart, Gallagher once again chose the high side, leaving Joe Hodgeson Jr. to fend for himself on the inside. Jon McNett took advantage on the restart and followed Gallagher through on the outside around Evan Barrett and Hodgeson Jr. Tim Ryan was able to work his way up into the fifth position, as Barrett got around Hodgeson Jr. for third. Barrett drove to the low side of McNett to take away the second spot, leaving McNett to hold off Hodgeson Jr. for third. Barrett tried to dive under Gallagher going into turn four, with two laps to go, and spun out, bringing out the caution. On the restart, it was Gallagher, McNett, Hodgeson and Ryan to settle the score. Hettinger jumped into the mix and at the line, it was Gallagher, McNett, Hettinger, Beckwith, and Ryan. McNett and Barrett both took heat wins.


DELHI TWP. — A pictureperfect evening on June 25 greeted the Andrews Chevrolet Super Late Models at Spartan Speedway, which was a pleasant surprise, as every other Friday night that they’ve been scheduled has been rained out. Seventeen Supers hit Spartan Speedway’s 1/4-mile and defending track champion, Jimmy Gallagher, made a special trip to the Corrigan Oil Winner’s Circle, as the feature winner on the anniversary of his father’s passing. Logan Beckwith was shown as the early leader, with Bob Bauer and Gallagher in hot pursuit. After a lap eight caution, Beckwith chose the inside front row for the restart and Gallagher, always a threat on the high side, was given the outside front row. Gallagher drove into the lead, and 10 laps later, Beckwith took a look under Gallagher and spun out, leaving sole possession of first to

Slow-troll for good crappie, bluegill action Gliding over the still water with a gentle summer From the Field breeze felt great, we were trolling for crappie and bluegill and having a riot. Each Jack Payne summer, I take a page from my friends down south and someplace between vertical troll for the tasty panfish. The key to success is boat and a maximum of 45 despeed and keeping your line grees. Some days you barely

burp your trolling motor and other days you might run at 1 mph. Normally the slower speed is the best. Work two rods with double hooks on each. Have one rod set just below the surface and another half way down or at the depth where fish are shown on

your graph. A long soft rod is best and an old fly rod is perfect. Rod holders are nice but not a requirement. We use a basic drop shot rig with two lures when targeting summer panfish. We use plastic body baits such as the Whip R Knocker or the Whip R Snap from Stopper Lures, the Charlie Brewer one and two inch grubs or the Mr. Twister two-inch tails. Under very calm conditions a couple of number seven split shots work great. Under windy conditions or when the fish are deep, an egg sinker ran between the two baits is preferred. Two other baits should be considered and used with the plastics. The Pinky Jig or the Little Nipper from Lindy and their feather like design glides through the water in a seductive manner that’s hard for a crappie not to inhale.

Use insects, worms, little bait fish

Crickets, wax worms or minnows are a staple with most anglers. I love crickets but you need to be fast on the draw. Gills can suck a cricket off a hoop faster than toddlers can drop the tops of their ice cream cones. We use the fast snaps so that we can change lures Courtesy photo quickly once a pattern is esJack Payne holds a 17-inch trolled crappie that was released back into the tablished. Chartreuse, yelwater. low and pink are the most

consistent colors. Bend your hook out slightly to increase your hook-up ratio. Keep the hooks razor sharp with a file and most of your fish will hook themselves. Under clear skies and clear water, the best angling is the first and last few hours of the day. Dark water or murky lakes are the opposite. Great angling takes place during the middle hours of the day and the last light often the least productive. Birds often give away the location of panfish using the surface. If birds are diving at minnows or if schools of minnows are spotted scooting across the surface, then the crappie are close at hand. A large weed flat holds baitfish and plankton and draws in bluegill. Troll the edges of the weeds. Fish the side of the lake that’s receiving the wind except during a hard blow. Then search out the quieter waters. Troll between the shoreline and the swim rafts. This might require dodging around a few docks and logs, but the crappie filter from the shallows to the cover of a raft all day long.

Perhaps the best rig going for bluegill and darn good on crappie is the single hook mini-spinner. In most cases you will need to make your own. A small spinner, size zero or a one with three to four beads and either one or two hooks is it. Tip it with a piece of meat and troll away. B&M Rods and Lindy both carry pre-tied panfish rigs designed for minnows. Cut off the hook and tie on a fast snap for more versatility. Thirteen-year old Luke Michaels produces his own line and sells through Anglers that are mobile until a school is located will often return home with a bucket full of large panfish. Suspended fish are often holding at the same depth as the edge of first drop-off. Corn meal and Italian bread crumbs create a tasty and crunchier fillet. We add a touch of garlic powder and lemon pepper from Hi Mountain Seasonings for robust tasty fish. Jack Payne is a frequent contributor to the Ingham County Community News.
