Bike enthusiasm uncurbed Schools make Bicyclists take exam progress

to road for Women on Wheels tour By CHRISTIE BLECK

“As long as it was warm, it wasn’t bad in the rain.” – Julie Galbavi, Women on Wheels participant

Merit tests good overall By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — Julie Galbavi of Lansing starting cycling a year ago. Like many beginning athletes, she wants to work her way up to better performance. Participating in the 30th Annual Women on Wheels bicycle tour on July 24 was one step toward this goal. The tour, which emphasized providing a welcoming environment for women and novice riders to develop confidence in their road-riding skills, departed from Mason High School and separated into three routes measuring 17, 32 and 50 miles. The weather didn’t completely cooperate on tour day, with rain falling on the participants. The event drew about 150 registered riders, according to Adreah Saxton, ride director. Saxton said the rain kept away the riders, who usually number about 400, away this year. “This is unusual for us to have the weather we did,” said Katie Donnelly, tour spokesperson. That didn’t stop Galbavi from riding. “As long as it was warm, it wasn’t bad in the rain,”

said Galbavi, who also liked the “fruit stops” along the way. The event was organized by the Tri-County Bicycle Association, based in Lansing. TCBA also hosts the Dick Allen Lansing to Mackinaw (DALMAC) tour held annually over Labor Day weekend. Proceeds from the DALMAC tour have allowed The DALMAC Fund to grant over $900,000 to bicycledrelated groups and causes in the state since 1975.

Longtime rider The tour also wasn’t just for women only. Bob Gibbs of Okemos rode — which probably wasn’t surprising, given that he’s cycled for 80 years. That’s eight decades, which included Gibbs riding on bicycles with wooden rims in the early years. Gibbs, who will turn 92 this September, typically rides five miles every evening. He likes the physical effects that riding a bike can afford.

MASON — The latest Michigan Merit Exam results overall were good for local school districts. Statewide, high school juniors each spring take the test, which includes the ACT college entrance test. For Mason Public Schools, 55.6 percent met or exceeded Michigan standards in math, while 72.2 percent met or exceeded reading standards. Other results were: science, 65.5 percent; social students, 85 percent; and writing, 49.6 percent. According to Mark Dillingham, former assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction and as of Aug. 1 the new superintendent, reading was up 6 percent from last year. Writing was the same, math and social studies were down slightly (3 percent) and science was up 1 percent. “One-year changes of 3 percent, higher or lower, are commonplace,” Dillingham said. “More statistically significant are the 4 percent, higher or lower, movements, like reading this year.”

Emphasis on reading Dillingham said reading will be emphasized this year,

and a focus will continue on writing through K-12. The district, he noted, has developed new school improvement plans at the district and building levels in which deficiencies or gaps in all core curriculum disciplines will be targeted. Dillingham said the district also will starts to align its curriculum in language arts and mathematics to the new Common Core Standards, which were adopted by the Michigan Board of Education recently as part of the federal “Race to the Top” initiative. For Leslie Public Schools, the results for meeting or exceeding standards were: math, 54.4 percent; reading, 67.5 percent; science, 57.5 percent; social studies, 80 percent; and writing, 46.9 percent. Bruce Barbour, director of curriculum instruction for the district, said Leslie is at the state average — 58 percent — in science and above the state average in the other areas. “Last year, we were above the state average only in social studies,” Barbour said. “We are pleased with the progress we are making, but know we still have a ways to go to be where we want to be.” For Dansville, the results were: math, 47.8 percent; reading, 67.2 percent; science, 67.2 percent; social studies, 83.6 percent; and writing, 50.8 percent.

Intersection site of recent fatal crash

Harvey honored

Jim Harvey, recently retired superintendent of Mason Public Schools, is honored at a Kiwanis Club of Mason breakfast on July 20 in the new city hall community room. Harvey, a member of the Promise Scholarship board, received $500 from the Lions Club for the program.

MASON — The Ingham County Road Commission is planning a traffic study for the intersection of Barnes and Edgar roads. The study comes after a July 16 fatal accident at the Aurelius Townshi intersection. Killed in a two-vehicle collision was Mason High School sophomore Sarah Caltrider, who died the following day. Bill Conklin, managing director of the road commission, said the traffic study will evaluate the possibility of a four-way stop at the site. The study will include traffic counts on all four approaches to the intersection. The timeline was not specified, according to Conklin.

“We’re preferably looking to do it in the fall when construction projects are done,” Conklin said. The commission currently is short on staff, he said, but it’s possible temporary staff will come on board later this summer. Conklin said that if internal staff handled the traffic study, the cost would be included in the budget. If the study were to be handled by an outside source, he estimated the cost at $5,000-$10,000. Jean Bement, a city resident who until October 2009 lived near the intersection, wrote in a letter to the road commission, “Because I lived in the area for so long, I am still very cognizant and cautious when approaching this intersection. “While I don’t have the all the accident details and do not know any of the those involved personally, I believe that a four-way stop may have prevented this tragic ac-

cident or at least lessened the chances of a fatality.” Conklin responded by saying that if stop signs or other controls that aren’t warranted are put up, experience has shown that drivers routinely disobey them. Then drivers on the side road may have a false sense of security that main road drivers will notice and obey the main road signs. “For example, if unwarranted, unexpected stop signs were placed on a main road at a low-volume side road, a side road driver could stop and then proceed immediately if he or she were the first vehicle to arrive, assuming that the main road vehicle would stop for their (main road) stop sign,” Conklin wrote. However, the main road driver arriving at about the same time, and not usually seeing traffic on the side road — and thus being in the hab-

it of not making a complete stop at this and similar locations — could go through and hit the side road vehicle that had the legal right to proceed, he said. Four-way stops, then, could introduce different, but just as serious, hazards, Conklin pointed out. He also wrote that twoway stops, on the other hand, put all the responsibility for stopping, and not proceeding until safe to do so, to only one of two drivers arriving at the intersection simultaneously. This, Conklin noted, would avoid a possible accident resulting from confusion about who has the right to proceed. A “cause” page on Facebook entitled “4 Way Stop on Barnes and Edgar Road!” has been created, with more than 500 members as of press time.

MASON — The Capital Area District Library on the Aug. 3 ballot will ask voters to renew its current millage of 1.56 mills for four more years. The current millage expired on Dec. 31, 2009. According to CADL, the

millage is a renewal, not an increase. Because of falling property values, funding for CADL already has decreased, requiring CADL to reduce its 2009 and 2010 budgets. If the millage doesn’t pass, the 13 CADL branches as well as its bookmobile would close on Jan. 3, 2011, and would remain closed until operating funding is approved.

However, Sheryl Bass, head librarian at the Mason Library, is confident that the millage will be renewed. Bass said the message about supporting the millage is getting out to library patrons, but that’s “preaching to the choir” regarding the issue. She also has been canvassing the town to drum

up support. “It seems pretty positive,” Bass said. “I’m personally optimistic about it.” Barb Keeler, Leslie Library head librarian, said she hasn’t heard one way or the other about local sentiment toward the millage renewal. However, she noted that the library patrons obviously are in favor of it. Aurelius Library head li-

brarian Jennifer DeGroat also had kind words for that branch’s users as well as the community at large. “Aurelius Township has always been supportive of our library,” DeGroat said. For an Ingham County resident who owns a home with a taxable value of $50,000 and a market value of $100,000, the 1.56-millage

rate would be about $78 a year. About 90 percent of CADL’s funding comes from tax dollars through a millage. The millage would not fund building, remodeling or expanding library facilities as local municipalities provide these items for their respective branches.

Mason soccer teams to host golf fundraiser MASON — The Mason High School boys and girls soccer teams will host their third annual golf outing/ fundraiser on Aug. 21 at Eagle View Golf Club. The event will raise funds for uniforms and equipment and to improve the soccer

facilities. The cost of the event is $70 per person and includes 18 holes of golf, a cart, lunch and a steak dinner. There will be contests (longest drive, closest to the pin, etc.) plus raffle prizes, a live auction and prizes for

the winning team, including a hot air balloon ride. The varsity level sponsorship ($250) will have a hole sponsorship recognition sign posted at one of

the golf holes, their name son a large banner which will be displayed both at the golf outing and at one of this fall’s boys home soccer games and have their name

sprinted on a shirts for all participants. JV level hole sponsors ($100) will also have a hole sponsorship signs posted at holes and have their names printed

Leslie holding yard sales By CHRISTIE BLECK

August 1, 2010

LESLIE — Dozens of yard sales will take place Aug. 13-14 throughout Leslie during a community-wide event. Sponsored by the Leslie Area Chamber of Commerce, about 60 sales will feature a multitude of items, organizer Marie Charnley said.

Charnley said the number of yard sales expected for the Friday and Saturday event are much more than expected. “It’s going to be a big deal that weekend,” Charnley said. Items expected to be for sale, she said, include older John Deere toys, an antique sewing machine, a Moped, books, DVDs and a side-by-

side refrigerator. Charnley said the sales will begin at 9 a.m., with no particular closing time set. “I tried to have as few rules as possible,” she said. Charnley also said the community yard sale is a way for people to “just get to know our small town.” For more information, contact Charnley at (517) 589-8612.

Mason student takes trip to Shiga, Japan By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — She had to wait a year, but Mason High School senior Lauren Waltz finally made it to Shiga, Japan. Waltz had been scheduled to travel to the Asian country in 2009 as part of the Michigan-Shiga Student Exchange Program conducted through Michigan State University. However, the H1N1 threat canceled the trip. Waltz, though, didn’t face that obstacle this year, and on July

9 returned from Shiga after spending about two and a half weeks there. “It was so fun,” Waltz said. “Everything over there is just beautiful.” What struck Waltz was the physical beauty, with the ever-present mountains and “perfect” trees. “Everything was just intricate,” Waltz said. Japanese behavior also differed from American behavior in at least one way, according to Waltz.In Shiga, residents greeted everyone. “We don’t do that here,” Waltz said. “We say, ‘good

morning,’ but not to everyone.” Waltz lived with a family of three, plus went to school, both of which taught her a lot about Japanese culture. For one thing, according to Waltz, Shiga residents rode bicycles everywhere. That meant she had to ride to school, a one-hour trip — in 90-degree weather — wearing a school uniform. “I was exhausted from jet lag,” Waltz said. “I just had no desire to move.” Finally, Waltz ended up being driven to school, a trip

that still took 45-50 minutes because of heavy traffic. There were local quirks, such as the grooves on the bridge at Lake Biwa playing the “Lake Biwa Song” as her bus was driven over it. It also was often hot and humid. “They didn’t use air conditioning a lot,” Waltz said. However, that might be because of the local culture’s emphasis on energy conservation and recycling. Waltz said that in public, there were individual trash cans for bottles, cans, trash, etc., unlike the American re-

ceptacles used for all discarded items. “You had to separate everything,” she said. That concern for conservation carried over into other parts of their lifestyles. “Even the little things in their life — they don’t waste anything,” Waltz said. Waltz and her family will welcome a Japanese foreign exchange student, Hiroshi Furuhashi, in their home in September. That student will get a taste of American culture and how Mason residents live day

to day. Local cuisine might have a particular appeal to Furuhashi as he plans to be a chef. He also is allergic to “flat fishes and yellow tails,” which might not be a problem in the Waltz household. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen those in the store,” said Lauren’s mother, Lynda LaLonde. Either way, Waltz was glad she experienced Shiga. “I just think their lifestyle is admirable in a way,” she said. “I liked it. I want to go back someday.”

Area library seeks voter support on Aug. 3 If you are a registered voter in Ingham County, please be aware of an important vote coming up this week that affects all the libraries in Capital Area District Library (CADL) system. Many of you are aware that almost 90 percent of CADL’s funding comes from At the property taxes, collected as library a millage. Our current millage has expired, and in orBarb der for the library to remain Keeler 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 bookmo-

bile 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 Tuesday, Aug. 3. For more information, please visit, or pick up a brochure at the library. The value a library provides to communities is substantial, but it can also be measured in terms of savings for individual users. To get some idea of the value the library provides you and your family, check out the calculator on our Web site ( It allows you to determine what your out-of-pocket costs would be if you purchased certain goods and services at retail prices. For example, a family that in one month’s time checks out eight books, eight DVDs, one audiobook and one magazine, plus attends one children’s program and logs in four hours on library computers, has used $253 worth of library services. That adds up to more than $3,000 in one year! The library offers a great return on a small investment, even for

those who are not weekly or monthly users. One of our most popular value-adds is our Summer Reading Program for kids and teens. This season’s program is approaching its end, with Aug. 14 as the last day to claim prizes. But that doesn’t mean use of the library should end! We’re available year round, 24/7. As a reminder of the many activities, materials and opportunities we offer, stop in and pick up one of my “CADL is Your Lifesaver” bookmarks. Then let us help you sign up for a computer class, learn to download eBooks or eAudiobooks, learn to place a book on hold, and much more. We want you to be comfortable using our library both in person and online. The Leslie Library, a CADL, is located at 201 Pennsylvania St. For information about our hours, programs or services, call (517) 589-9400 or visit Barb Keeler is the head librarian at the Leslie Library.

Mason police report


Steele Street suspicions July 20: Officers responded to a suspicious person complaint on Steele Street. A caller reported two suspects were sitting outside a building, possibly sharing a marijuana “joint,” and that they may have entered the building. The officers arrived and could not find the duo, but did locate an open door. Investigation found the building undisturbed, and the matter was relayed to a staff member.

Probationer problems July 20: An officer was called to the 55th District Court Probation Department for trouble with an intoxicated probationer who had a history of combative behavior directed toward police officers. By the time the officer arrived, a deputy and trooper were already escorting the suspect into a courtroom to appear on a contempt of court charge after producing a .07 percent breath-alcohol level during a breath test given by the probation officer. When the suspect denied to the judge that he had consumed any alcohol, a breathalyzer test was ordered. If the results were substantiated, the suspect was to start serving 30 days. The judge then ordered the case turned over to the

Other evidence validated the vehicle had not been moved in a very long time, including — as it was being towed away — the heavily corroded exhaust system, which fell off the car onto the street. The property owner received a 10-day warning for the remainder of the code violations, after which a follow-up investigation will be conducted.

Mailbox, post damaged July 22: An officer was called to the 600 block of Okemos where vandals had damaged a mailbox. The mailbox and post had been struck by an unknown force, detaching the box from the post, damaging them both.

Citations issued

will be assessed after the drug screen results are obtained.

Vagrant asked to leave July 22: An officer responded to a report of a vagrant in a Mason apartment complex. The complainant reported a non-resident hanging around inside a building and trying to look into apartment door peepholes. The complainant suspected the suspect had also been sleeping in the hallways. When the officer approached him, the suspect got up and tried to walk away but was stopped. The end result was the suspect was told by the complainant to leave the property and not return. The matter is closed.

Pay before prosecution July 22: An officer received a theft of gasoline complaint from the clerk of an area service station. The complainant said a green van was filled with gasoline and then driven off without the driver paying. The complainant obtained the registration plate, and the officer was able to locate the registered owner, who will be contacted. These issues are usually resolved with payment before prosecution is sought. There also are driver’s license sanctions applied for those convicted of such offences.

Threats noted July 23: An officer received a report of threats to a Mason resident who stated her ex-boyfriend has threatened to rape her and beat up her roommate’s boyfriend. The complainant said the ex has called by phone repeatedly to make the threats, and although concerned, she does not want any further action other than to document the incidents.

Nuisance noisemaker in trouble

During his time inside the apartment, the officer was berated and harassed by a vociferous male who kept demanding the officer leave, even though the man did not reside there. Turns out he was wanted by the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office, so when the officer left, so did he. The officer issued a citation to the apartment resident for possession of drug paraphernalia — for a scale with marijuana residue on it located on a night stand — and the loud music. The vocal objector was turned over to Eaton County deputies for failing to pay child support. He will go from there to Calhoun County where is also wanted for a probation violation.

Felony warrants issued July 25: An officer received a dispatch to go to an allnight business where the clerk was having trouble with a customer. The call came from a third party whom the clerk had called for help. The caller relayed the details to the officer via the 911 dispatcher. When the officer arrived, he witnessed the suspect walk out of the business and go immediately out behind the building. The officer was close enough to witness the suspect unzip his pants, exposing his genitals, and begin urinating. The officer approached him, told him to zip up and that he was under arrest. The suspect thought otherwise and pushed the officer, then fought to resist arrest. When both were on the ground and it became apparent the officer would have difficulty getting control of the suspect, he applied departmentissued OC spray, which eventually took effect and allowed the officer to arrest the now-compliant suspect. The store clerk reported the suspect had been hanging around the business and just appeared this evening, acting weird and gross. The suspect was taken to an area medical facility for treatment after the application of chemical spray and detoxification. When he was cleared medically, the suspect was taken to the Ingham County Jail where he was lodged. The next morning the Ingham County prosecutor issued a twocount felony warrant.

July 24: An officer was dispatched to a loud party inside an apartment building. The officer arrived and easily detected the source of the noise, thus, was able to contact the resident. While the door was open, the officer was able to smell Smuggling fail burnt marijuana from inside the apartment, and during the July 26: Officers and deputies responded to a dispatch for interview of the resident, was invited in to speak to everyhelp at the 55th District Court after a visitor was discovered one present.

trying to smuggle drugs into the courthouse. The suspect placed a cigarette package in a basket to be scanned for contraband. When the security officer recognized the contents of the package as contraband, the package was seized. Seeing this, the suspect grabbed for the contraband, and a struggle for control initiated during which the suspect was able to grab the item away and flee. A deputy was alerted to the struggle and attempted to stop the suspect, who continued to flee, tearing up the evidence as he ran. The deputy was able to catch and detain the suspect before the officers arrived. Recovered was the destroyed packaging and one marijuana “joint.” The suspect was arrested for the violation of his conditional bond held by the 54th District Court. As officers tried to pick him up off the ground where he had rolled up into a cocoon to create a dead weight, he began crying and declaring he did nothing wrong. He was eventually taken into the Ingham County Jail where he was lodged. As for not doing anything wrong, the Ingham County prosecutor saw otherwise and issued a three-count warrant for resisting and obstructing a police officer, assault and battery on the court security officer, and possession of marijuana. Note: Over the course of the last three days, Mason police officers have been able to track down and identify a small group of organized youth responsible for the majority of the thefts from automobiles around Mason the past two months. A considerable amount of the items reported stolen have been recovered. The investigation is ongoing as still-missing items are recovered and further follow-up is conducted. The reports will be submitted to the Ingham County prosecutor for review of charges once the investigation is complete. FOUND PROPERTY (still unclaimed): The Mason Police Department is in possession of a woman’s bicycle, man’s bicycle, boy’s bicycle, two other bicycles and a large key ring with a lot of keys and a padlock on it. Anyone who has lost or had stolen any of these items is asked to contact the MPD. If anyone has any questions or comments regarding this report or any other police matter, contact the Mason Police Department at (517) 676-2458 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays, or — From Chief John Stressman

Ingham County 4-H Fair

August 2 - 7 700 E. Ash St., Mason

Entertainment value is key for county fair By WILL KANGAS

MASON — Led by first-year Executive Director Barb Hensinger, the Ingham County Fair has a mission. “We wanted to offer a lot of entertainment for the price of admission,” Hensinger said. The result: Ingham County fair-goers will not have to pay extra to see daily grandstand events this year. Events like the tractor pulls, figure eight demolition derby and SJO Supercross will not cost extra. The admission cost, which is $8 for adults and $5 for children and seniors, is the only price to pay this year for grandstand shows as well as other offerings, Hensinger said. “We allow people to bring their own lunch and that along with our 4-H exhibits and entertainment at the Shirley Clark Pavilion, there will be a lot to see for the price of admission,” she said. Michigan’s struggling economy has had an impact on county fairs recently. Along with that, Hensinger said there is pressure to make sure the fair ends up in the black because of Ingham County’s tight finances. Hensinger, however, is no strang-

er to county fairs. A Mason resident, she is the division director of fair, racing and exhibitions under the Michigan Department of Agriculture. Hensinger said other new things to see at the fair this year include a “Guitar Hero” contest on Aug. 3, 4 and 5. There will also be “The Zone,” which will feature Laser Tag and a special “Laser Vault” obstacle course. “It’s kind of like a James Bond type of thing,” she said. Hensinger said there will also be a “Fitness Challenge” that will allow fair-goers to throw medicine balls and compete in a standing long jump against each other. “We’ll have our popular petting zoo and shows for the little ones everyday as well,” she said. The idea was to offer a lot of fun for a low price for those that want to save money and can’t afford to travel, she said. Also new this year is a refreshment tent, where beer will be served in a designated and monitored area. The tent was approved by county commissioners in June in the hopes of raising more funds for the fair and attracting more people.

The Ingham County Fair in Mason has been a county event for over 150 years and includes a variety of fun. Officials say there are many things to do for the ow price of admission.

Prelesnik is named 2010 ‘Friend of the Fair’ MASON — The 2010 Ingham County Fair has named Mike Prelesnik of Mason as the 2010 Ingham County Friend of the Fair. Prelesnik first became interested in the fair as a 4-H and FFA member showing still life and livestock exhibits at the fair. Eventually while in college, Prelesnik became superintendent of the “4-H Night at the Grandstand” which featured a talent show, animal parade, a parade of 4-H floats, and Ag Olympics. Over the years the event has

moved to a talent show in the Shirley Clark Pavilion and a parade through the fairgrounds on the opening night of the fair. This year will be Prelesnik’s 17th year as superintendent of the fair and talent show. Prelesnik has also been involved with the horse pull as superintendent since 2005 when it was added back to the fair after an absence for several years. Additionally, for several years Prelesnik announced buyers at the junior livestock auction and

judged 4-H barns and exhibits. While a student at Michigan State University, Prelesnik worked as a 4-H intern and also as an assistant in the fair office. This led Prelesnik to apply for an appointment to the fair board, and he was appointed to the board on January 1, 1998. Prelesnik’s term on the fair board recently ended after he had served 12 years on the board including three years as secretary-treasurer and six years as president. Throughout his years on the board, Prelesnik was involved with many activities at the fairgrounds including capital projects on the grounds, adding new events to the fair week, coordinating grandstands shows, working with carnival and concessionaire vendors, assisting with off-season rentals, and helping with fair marketing. Prelesnik is also a member of the Angel House Winter Carnival and Craft Show planning committee, and his interest in the fair industry led him to starting his own amusement company, Mason Rail Time Adventures in 2007.

and going into turn one, Ryan and Beckwith tangled, collecting three other cars in the process. Beckwith got his spot back and was able to continue, but Ryan, Joe Hodgeson Jr., and Gallagher retired to the pit with damage of one form or another, and only Gallagher would return to action. At the stripe, it was Jackson’s Beckwith with the win, followed by Sonny Coito, Bob Bauer, Dan Krzywosinski and Jimmy Gallagher. Evan Barrett and Jon McNett took heat wins. Valvoline Modifieds John Mamula and Justin Kazmar made up the front row for the start of the Valvoline Instant Oil Change Modified division. Kazmar took the early lead, but Mamula dove to the inside to take the spot away on lap two. Caution waved on lap seven and Mamula chose the inside lane for the restart. Ozanich capitalized on the outside and took the lead on

lap nine, while Tom Hernly Jr. had made his way to the front, sitting in third. Ozanich, Mamula, Hernly, Larry Wallace and Kazmar were all running nose to tail, but Mamula drifted high and Hernly dove under him for second. Wallace followed suit and Mamula faded to fourth. At lap 20, Hernly jumped to the low side of Ozanich to make the pass and take away the lead, as Coito went to work on Mamula for fourth. Hernly opened up a sizeable lead over the field, but caution on lap 31 erased it. On the restart, Hernly picked up where he left off, leaving Ozanich to hold off Wallace for second. Coming down to the checkered, Mamula and Haughton got togeth-

er, sending Mamula spinning across the start/finish line, but Hernly Jr. took the win on Shaheen Chevrolet Night, followed by Ozanich, Wallace and Coito. Jim Kennedy, Wallace and Ozanich scored wins in their heats. Pure Stocks With attendance lagging in the Pure Stock division, Landon Hidy took the win over the five-car field. Mod driver Chris Ozanich tried his hand behind the wheel of a Pure Stock, led the first lap, succumbed to Hidy, and got nipped at the line by Matt Childers to finish third. Mark Childers came home in fourth. Kyle Drake retired to the pit early with mechanical problems and was shown in fifth.

Pony Stocks The Boss Snow Equipment Pony Stock A-Feature saw Wayne Beckner Jr. take a commanding lead over the field, leaving Patrick Denison to fend off Todd Metz Jr., Aaron Taylor and Darren Wright for second. Denison was able to hold on as the trio behind him ganged up on him, trying to take the spot away. Metz tried every angle to get around Denison, while Wright and Taylor duked it out for fourth. At the line, it was Beckner Jr., Denison, Metz Jr., Wright and Taylor. Beckner was also the heat winner.

DELHI TWP. — The Andrews Chevrolet Super Late Models made another appearance at Spartan Speedway on July 23 with thunderstorms and rain threatening to put a damper on the Shaheen Chevrolet and Autograph Night racing program.

Jon McNett took off like a shot when the green flag waved leaving Bob Bauer to fend off Logan Beckwith and Jimmy Gallagher. Beckwith got around Bauer and began to reel in McNett, catching him by lap 22. Caution waved for McNett, whose race car put down a line of fluid on the track, ending his night. On the restart, Beckwith and Tim Ryan sat on the front row, with Ryan jumping the start. Beckwith brought the field down, a second time, very slowly, and Ryan ran Beckwith up the track coming out of turn four for the green. Caution waved again, and a restart was in order.

Post 205 wins four, captures state title By BILL McLEOD

MOUNT PLEASANT — East Lansing Post 205 pitchers shined in the Palomino League state tournament, not allowing a run in all four games to clinch the state title. “I’ve been talking about our pitching staff all season long, and they backed me up,” Post 205 coach Bob Gast said. “Looking back, no one ever won the state title without giving up a run.” Gast said it is very difficult to shut out four teams in a row— a hit followed by a bad bounce on a grounder, and suddenly the runner is in scoring position. “It’s so easy to score a run without shelling the pitcher,” he said. “This was quite a feat for us.” As effective as the team’s pitching performance was, Post 205 hitters proved they were up to the task, feasting on their opponents’ pitching. East Lansing scored 39 runs while blanking opponents in the four-game series. Post 205 advanced to the Palomino North Zone regional in Kankakee, Ill., where they were to face a Minnesota team and two teams from Illinois in the first three games. The winner was to advance to the semifinal round July 31. Last year Post 205 advanced to the Palomino World Series. It was the fifth time Post 205 has been to the series, and Gast is optimistic about making getting

there this year. “It’s going to be tough, but we have better pitching than we had last year,” Gast said about getting through the regional. “They know all about us down there (at Kankakee). It’s going to be a battle.”

State tournament Post 205 started the state tournament with an easy 21-0 win over Allen Park in the July 21 opener. Albion College junior Chuck DeClarke, a Lansing Catholic graduate, was the winning pitcher, striking out five in four innings. DeWitt’s Trever Bowers came on in relief, shutting out Allen Park in the final two innings. Ryan Joy of St. Johns went 3-for-3 at the plate. B.J. Salazar of Lansing Eastern was 2-for-3. DeClarke had a home run and a double, drove in three runs and scored three times. Tyler Smith of Portland St. Patrick had a solo home run. “Everything we hit found a hole,” Gast said about scoring 21 runs. “Allen Park is a good team, but I think they got shell-shocked after we scored five runs in the first inning. It was one of those things where everything we did worked.” Williamston’s Dylan Monette was the winning pitcher in the second game, besting Walled Lake No. 2 10-0 July 22. He struck out six and allowed just two hits. “It was a stellar perfor-

mance for Monette, he was on his game,” Gast said. DeClarke had two hits and drove in two runs. Markus Wojtkowicz of Owosso went 2-for-2 with an RBI. Mason’s Allen Manyen hit a two-run double and scored a run. The third game of the tournament was a repeat showdown with the Central Michigan Stars. Post 205 swept the Stars in an early-season doubleheader, but the Stars most recently bested East Lansing 9-5 and 11-5 in a July 13 doubleheader. Gast said Post 205 struggled in the loss, not hitting, pitching or fielding well. “That game was a wakeup call for us,” Gast said. After the loss to the Stars, Post 205 went on to win the rest of its scheduled games to close out the regular season. Gast said Post 205 was ready to get redemption for the losses, especially after he went to the press box to turn in the lineup card and a coach for the Stars asked Gast if he “wanted the silver (second place) metal now?” “That was bulletin board material,” Gast said abut the coach’s smug comment. The game featured a match up between St. Johns pitching ace Jacob Pearsall and Mount Pleasant sophomore standout Evan Hill. Pearsall walked away with the 2-0 win, striking out five and allowing just two hits in 5 2/3 innings. “He was right on top of his game, he was dominant

Mark Robinson for LSJ Media

Members of the Palomino League state championship team include Trever Bowers, Austin Corbin, Chuck DeClarke, Clay Harmon, Ryan Joy, Nikolai Jump, Allen Manyen, Dylan Monette, Jared Nurenberg, Greg Oginsky, Jacob Pearsall, Brian Risk, Jacob Robinson, B.J. Salizar, Tyler Smith, Travis Thomas, Tyler Watters and Marcus Wojtkowicz. Post 205 is coached by Bob Gast and assisted by Sid Middleton, Mark Manyen and Lance Beasley. for 5 2/3 innings,” Gast said. “He just ran out of gas (at the end) on a very hot day.” Portland’s Travis Thomas came on to pick up his fourth save of the game, getting out of a two-out, bases loaded jam in the sixth inning. Gast said it was huge to get the win over Hill, who is already being heavily recruited by several Division 1 colleges. Gast said the win took the win out of the Stars’ sails for the rest of the tournament. The Stars finished third. St. Johns players showed well in the game. Jacob Robinson, a recent St. Johns grad, scored both runs for

Post 205. He scored in the first inning when Redwing teammate Jared Nurenberg doubled. Robinson scored again in the third inning, this time of a single by Joy. The St. Johns players preserved a shutout in the sixth inning when the Stars had the bases loaded with one out. Nurenberg field a grounder at third, flipped to Robinson at second for the force out. Robinson fired to first baseman Joy for the double play, thwarting a Stars threat. DeClarke picked up a 6-0 win in the July 24 tournament final over Walled Lake No. 1, pitching the complete game. Clark had a perfect game

until the fifth inning, when a Walled Lake batter got a hit on a bouncing grounder. DeClarke faced only 22 batters in the nine-inning game. “He’s got everything you want in a pitcher,” Gast said. DeClarke has a 9-1 season record with a 0.93 ERA. He has held opponents to a measly .117 batting average. DeClarke had a double and scored a run. Manyen went 2-for-3 with an RBI and scored a run. Nurenberg and Williamston’s Tyler Watters each had two RBI. Post 205 heads for regionals with a 39-7-1 record. The World Series will be held Aug. 5-8 in San Jose, Calif.

Nothing says a vintage fundraiser cookbook like recipes of tuna lasagna and lime jello salad, all entered via manual typewriter. It’d been awhile since I’d gotten any local historical artifacts off eBay, so I entered “Mason,” “Leslie” and “Dansville” into the search box. Lo and behold cropped up the Dansville 4-H Cookbook. I paid my money (under $10, I think) via PayPal, and soon I was the proud owner of the 202-page bound volume. The cookbook was printed and bound by General Publishing and Binding out of Iowa Falls, Iowa, in 1979. That’s 31 years ago. Christie’s Fortunately, food hasn’t changed that much in those chronicles three decades, and dishes such as Milky Way Cake Christie (made with four Milky Way Bleck bars), Six-Week bran muffins (batter is supposed to keep for that long) and Glamour Dogs (I think it’s the Worchestershire sauce that fancies them up) probably taste as good now as they did then. Compiled by the Dansville 4-Leaf Clovers, I’m assuming the cookbook was a fundraiser for the group. Credit, according to an inside page, went to Shirlene Harris; (“whose idea it was”) Ruth Crowell (for the creative artwork); Mary Reed, Louise Baldwin, Loretta Heiler, Nancy Fitts, Elizabeth Townsend, Polly Diehl and Carol Perrine (copying and editing); and “to each one who shared a recipe for all to enjoy.”


peanuts, cream of chicken soup, butter (my choice) or margarine, finely chopped celery and finely chopped onion, and you have a dish not often seen on local restaurant menus. The cookbook gives recipes for simple fare, too, including French dressing and “French type” dressing (without comparing the two, I can’t tell you how different they taste). If you can find Tang breakfast drink powder (and I do still see it around), you can whip up Light and Luscious Tang Dessert, except you can’t use instant pudding. There also is a section on microwave cooking. Keep in mind this was 1979, and microwaves weren’t as prevalent as they are today. Were you one of the technologically advanced chefs back then, you could make Spiced Fruit Compote, Carrots with Basil, Chicken Marengo and, last but not least, Creamy Wilted Lettuce (the bacon and sour cream seem to make this palatable). Karen Krepps, one of those who submitted a recipe, seemed to have a sense of humor. She entered Elephant Stew, which called for a medium-sized elephant, two rabbits (optional) and salt and pepper to taste. Use of meat tenderizer was advisable, and brown gravy was to be added to cover. The chef was to cook the meat over a kerosene fire at 465 degrees for about four weeks, with the finished dish serving about 3,800 people. Non-edible dishes — although they could be consumed when in dire need — included uncooked clay, modeling clay, jewelry dough, finger paint and papier mache. Courtesy photo I’m not sure how popular these types of cookbooks are as fundraisers nowadays, but there was something to be This Dansville 4-H Cookbook contains many culinary said for the communal effort to create a product to help a treasures such as Tomato Juice Cookies, Sausage group, especially 4-Hers. Succotash Scallop and Flying Farmers Cake. As the verse at the front of the book noted: “Each time you turn these pages Looking for something new to cook Fondly remener each person Who made possible this book.”

I’m not much of a chef, but many of these recipes might be worth an attempt or two. Take Tater Tot Casserole. With a pound of ground beef, a medium onion, a can of mushroom soup and a package of Tots, you can create a savory concoction worthy of any grade schooler’s lunch tray (or my dinner plate, for that matter).
