Old technology on display Voters to have input on parks By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — Piles of cut logs and the sounds of rhythmic chugging and loud “choo-choo” whistles filled the Michigan Steam Engine and Threshers Club grounds again during its annual reunion held July 30-Aug. 1. The technology that powered the agriculture machines of yesteryear was on display, and was used in various demonstrations, including cutting logs in an antique sawmill and making homemade ice cream. The event attracted visitors from throughout the state. Two patrons were Joan and Irving Baumgart of Devils Lake. “People here don’t have an identity crisis,” Joan said. “They all know who they are.” “And it’s fun to see the old equipment,” Irving added. One of the oldest pieces of equipment at the reunion was an 1880 steam engine manufactured by Rumely, the featured company this year. It’s believed to be the oldest known Rumely. The 8-horsepower machine, which sold for $1,000 at the time, has an iron-wheeled truck with brake, a brass whistle and a patent pop safety valve, among other features. Paul Ledwidge of Dexter brought his 1895 Port Huron tractor to the reunion, one of many similar

MASON — Mason voters on the Nov. 2 ballot will be asked if they support an additional millage to support city parks. The city, in addition to maintaining its current parks, including Laylin and Hayes, now is in charge of Rayner Park. Earlier this summer the city entered an agreement with Ingham County in which the city will pay $1 per year through Dec. 31, 2016 to lease the park. After meeting agreement terms, the city has the rights to buy the park for $1. The county had closed the park because of budget reasons. It’s been estimated it costs about $44,000 annually to maintain Rayner, located at 730 E. Ash St. The ballot question, however, is an advisory vote only. The question will read: “Do you favor the Mason City Council, as part of the annual budget process commencing April, 2011, increasing the city’s general operating millage by up to 0.5 mills for the fiscal year commencing July 1, 2011 for the purpose of raising addi-

tional revenue for support of the municipal park system? It is estimated that such increase would raise up to an additional $106,000 in FY 2011-12 and would cost a household with an average taxable value of $57,000 an additional tax of up to $28.50 per year.” After the vote is canvassed, results will be reported to the Mason City Council, which decides on the final budget. “I think it’s a simple, easyto-understand ballot language the average voter can understand and identify with,” Mayor Pro Tem Robin Naeyaert said. Naeyaert pointed out that “thousands of people” had indicated they wanted to keep Rayner Park open. “This is truly the time to put their money where their mouth is,” Naeyaert said. A Facebook group named Save Rayner Park! has more than 2,300 members as of press time. Mayor Leon Clark stressed that the additional funds raised through the millage would be for all city parks, not just Rayner. As of July 26, a total of $53,406 in donations was earmarked toward Rayner Park. City Administrator Marty Colburn said the city will accept donations at anytime. COUNCIL MEETING MOVED BACK: Because of the election, the City Council will meet at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 3 at city hall.

Everything from tall weeds to garbage complaints will be Duthie’s s responsibility to identify and either resolve or enforce. This is part of the overall strategy of the Mason Police Department to continue its community policing efforts — incorporating the problem solving of issues that tend to disrupt neighborhoods and unintentionally breed crime problems. The department remains committed to being a positive influence towards maintaining the highest quality

of life possible for Mason’s residents through proactive law enforcement, as well as encouraging good citizenship practices. Part of good citizenship includes responsible caretaking of the community. The hiring of Jim Duthie as code enforcement officer will only enhance the efforts of the Mason Police Department toward achieving this goal. — From the Mason Police Department

Shelby Warner of Eaton Rapids takes aim during a laser tag game on Aug. 2 at the Ingham County Fair.

Fair mixes new and old By CHRISTIE BLECK

August 8, 2010

MASON — Triggers and targets have made their way into the Ingham County Fair to go along with the more traditional fair attractions such as cows, rabbits and carnival rides. Laser tag is part of a new section of the fair called “The Zone” where technology mixes with fun. That’s a mix that appealed to Shelby Warner, 8, of Eaton Rapids, who played laser tag with her brother, Triston, 11. “It’s fun because I get to hit my brother,” Shelby said. Dawn Dault, owner of, based in Chelsea, guided the young participants through laser tag. The game, she said, involves participants taking harmless “head shots” with at each other during a 15-minute period, with “nine lives” allowed. The player with the least number of “responds” (hits) wins. Also new at the fair this year are camel rides and a walk-through “Bird En-

counters” exhibit in which patrons can feed budgies ((parakeets) with seed-sticks. Animal Oasis, a Michiganbased exotic and domestic animal display company, is offering the exhibit. “It’s a wonderful way to interact with animals in a comfortable and fun environment,” Don Strobel, owner of Animal Oasis, said in a prepared statement. “Budgies are natives of Australia — so you don’t see them in flocks here — except now.” The display also includes an eclectus parrot, a miligold macaw and a pair of green-wing macaws.

Still the fair However, the Ingham County Fair, located at 700 E. Ash St., still has its traditional midway and 4-H competitions. One youngster who did well was Enoch Carpenter, 17, of Dansville, a member of the Stockbridge-based Happy Hustlers. On Aug. 2, Enoch took home the trophy of grand champion-any other breed after showing his Penedesenca chickens — known, he said, for their unusual combs

that are single until the back of the head when they become multiple combs. Penedesenca chicks also lay dark brown eggs. Enoch said judges look for bone structure, among other features. “Pretty much in this case, it’s somewhat potential, because they’re real young,” Enoch said of his rooster/ hen combo, which is under a year old. Enoch also was recognized for his Jacob sheep. “He likes those rare breeds,” his mother Sandy said. Branden Bauer, 13, of St. Johns, a member of the Webberville 4-H Club, received awards on Aug. 2 for grand champion-breeder ram (a Tunis) and ewe (a Chevotte). “He’s a lot smaller than all the rest,” Branden said of See

Continued from page 5

Vehicle impounded

High-tech thefts July 31: An officer investigated the burglary of a residence in Mason Hills that occurred between 11:30 p.m. the 30th and 2:15 a.m. the 31st. The thieves appear to have entered through an unlocked sliding door off a second floor balcony while the owner was out. Included in the items taken were a Samsung 50-inch LCD television, a 42-inch Pro Scan HDTV, a Play Station and an Xbox 360.

Bicycle confirmed stolen July 31: A bicycle theft was reported in the 100 block of Mason Street. After seeing what he believed to be a suspect riding off on a bicycle that he knew belonged to another, the witness contacted the victim and confirmed the bicycle was stolen. The bike is a men’s 21-speed, blue with a black basket with yellow straps. The suspect was described as a brown haired white male, 13 to 16 years old, wearing glasses, a dark shirt and jeans.

Need city permit too July 31: An officer received a report of a vendor selling bed sheets from a booth at Cedar and Columbia streets. The vendor produced a permit from the Ingham County clerk but did not have one for doing business from the city of Mason. When told of the infraction, the vendor agreed to pack up and not return until he had the proper permits. No action was taken by the officer, and the matter is closed.

Diseased animal dispatched

Aug. 1: An officer stopped a vehicle being driven on Cedar Street with 2009 registration plates. The driver reported not having purchased plates or insurance for lack of funds to do so. The vehicle was impounded, and the driver released with citations for operating with expired plates and no insurance.

Unwelcome return customer Aug. 1: An officer responded to a trouble complaint at a Mason business where a suspect came in asking for a clerk who was off duty. The complainant reported the suspect asked why the other clerk had him arrested the last time he had been in the business — he was arrested on July 25 for urinating in public and resisting arrest while behind the business and charged with a two-year felony for resisting a police officer and disorderly person, obscene behavior. The complainant pointed across the street at the suspect who was obviously searching through a dumpster. When the officer contacted him, he found the suspect was out of jail on a conditional bond, one of the terms being no use of alcohol. In spite of what was described as “foul body odor,” the officer was able to determine the suspect had consumed alcohol and had in his possession a partially-consumed can of beer. With the evidence in hand, the officer arrested the suspect for violation of the conditional bond and took him to the Ingham County Jail where he was lodged after being told the owners of the business at which he was causing problems didn’t want him to return.

The Taser talks

July 31: An officer was called to a report of a rabid raccoon in Rayner Park. The officer found the animal, which was obviously diseased, spinning in circles. He was able to maneuver the animal to a safe location and dispatch it with a handgun. The carcass was then removed and disposed of. It was determined that the animal had distemper rather than rabies.

Aug. 1: Officers and sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a fight complaint on West Maple Street. When the first officer arrived, he found cars parked at angles blocking the street and two men restraining an agitated third man. When the officer got out of the car, they stopped, and all three approached him. Suspecting an ambush, the officer warned the trio to keep at a distance — they refused and continued toward the officer until he unholstered his Taser and warned them All was well again, after which they complied. Aug. 1: An officer was dispatched to a family dispute When the remaining police units arrived, the matter where the complainant wanted his stepson to leave after was investigated and — according to participants — de-

Overdose taken Aug. 1: An officer was dispatched to a residence where the caller reported having taken an overdose of medication. The victim stated she took an excessive quantity of two types of pills to harm herself, and when they didn’t work, called for an ambulance. The victim was taken by ambulance to a medical facility for treatment.

Keeping tabs on driver Aug. 2: An officer stopped a car on Lansing Street for having an expired registration plate. The driver explained he had purchased new tabs but lost them. While talking with the man, the officer happened to notice several empty beer cans on the back seat, along with an opened case of beer and a can of beer sitting in the center console between the driver and the front seat passenger. The officer also noticed the odor of intoxicants emanating from the driver as he talked. Further investigation, coupled with a .15 percent breathalcohol level produced during a breath test, confirmed the officer’s suspicions, and the driver was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. The car was impounded, and the passenger was released after being cited for the open intoxicants found under his seat, directly beneath him. The driver was lodged in the Ingham County Jail.

termined to have unfolded as follows: The first suspect, who was mad at his estranged wife, drove to Maple Street to confront her. Two suspects heard about it and went to intercede. During a scuffle between the estranged couple and others over a child, another suspect — the estranged wife’s companion — exited the house and threw a golf club at the entangled group. It’s here that a dispute arises as to who acted next. Some said one of the three men who arrived pulled a handgun from his holster, after which the golf club hurler produced a shotgun and brandished it. Another version was the shotgun appeared first, after which a suspect produced his handgun — it was found he possessed a carrying-a-concealed-weapon permit. By all accounts, no one pointed any weapon at any one in particular. In the end the interviews were conducted and three firearms were seized as evidence. All the combatants were sent on their ways, and the report will be sent to the Ingham County prosecutor for review of charges. Things could have turned out a whole lot worse.


Anniversary Everett and Lois Ann Snyder-Downing of Alaiedon Township, Mason, celebrated their 64th anniversary on July 27. They were married in Clinton County, have one son, David Everett (Patty) and grandchild, Amanda Downing-Young (Tyler) of Lansing. Everett, a master printer, worked in the printing industry for 64 years, served as president of the Lansing Club of Printing House Craftsmen in 1960. He is compiling a history of printing in Michigan and as an expert in early printing processes, is often called upon to authenticate ages of printed materials. Everett was instrumental in the creation of the permanent early print shop display at Michigan State University Museum. In 1996, he accepted an invitation to share his expertise on printing presses with the staff at the Williamsburg Print Shop and assisted it in restoring an early wooden hand-printing press. Everett enjoys taking his miniature printing presses to schools, gives background on the history of printing to the class. He helps the children hand-set their names, etc., and op-

erate the press while printing their work. Lois has been active in music, studying voice, piano and music therapy, winning gold and silver medals in international voice competitions. She was a soloist for Lansing Matinee Musicale and participated in their music therapy program by taking music instruction to veteran’s hospitals, nursing homes, etc. In 1958, she initiated a music therapy program at Woodhaven School for special needs children, a volunteer program which continues at the Beekman Center in Lansing. Lois is a member of The Daughters of Union Veterans. Lois and Everett helped a neighborhood get toxic material removed from a gravel pit area and new fencing where two children had perished. They also fought and won to get two new laws passed in the Michigan legislature. Their written testimony, requested by a committee in Washington, D.C., became part of the effort to pass the Fair Credit Reporting Act. They also helped Michigan schoolchildren’s campaign to have the mastodon declared Michigan’s Official State Fossil, signed into law in 2002, and see-

African American Parade & Everett and Lois SnyderDowning ing the mastodon appear on the 2009 Michigan map. Everett, Lois, Dave and family have been active with the State Capitol Battle Flags Task Force as volunteers, working for the preservation of Michigan’s Civil War battle flags. Lois, Dave and other task force members contributed hundreds of hours at libraries and archives here and around the country, researching the history of Michigan’s Civil War flags and the flag bearers in preparation for a landmark book on Michigan’s flag bearers. In their effort to raise funds for the flag project, Ted Turner was convinced to release the movie “Gettysburg” in Lansing one day before the national premiere, which raised over $5,000 for the flag project. No celebration is planned other than a quiet dinner with family due to Lois’ illness and hospitalization.

Sheriff’s deeds dip slightly for June MASON — Ingham County Treasurer Eric Schertzing and Register of Deeds Curtis Hertel reported that the number of sheriff’s deeds in Ingham County for June 2010 compared to June 2009 decreased slightly. In June 2009, 175 sheriff’s deeds were recorded and last month 171 were recorded. The discouraging news, however, is that the number

of sheriff’s deeds recorded by the end of June 2010 is an 11.1 percent increase over the same time frame in 2009. In 2009, at the end of June, 879 sheriff’s deeds had been recorded and at the end of June 2010, 977 sheriff’s deeds had been recorded. In the mortgage foreclosure process, a sheriff’s deed typically starts a sixmonth redemption period

for the property. Hertel said he wants to encourage citizens who are having trouble making mortgage payments to call 211 or visit for a referral to a financial counselor. “The encouraging news is that it appears the market may be stabilizing,” Schertzing said. 0100025295

MOVE uses a family-centered planning approach to develop mobility programs based on current theory and research in education, psychology, biomechanics and motor science. It offers a wide array of services from basic care to curriculum development. The MOVE curriculum teaches students basic, functional motor skills that combine natural body mechanics with an instructional process to help students acquire improved motor independence. Heartwood students will benefit from this partnership by increasing their abilities to sit, stand, walk and transition. Over the long term, it’s anticipated that participating students will gain more mobility, better health, more dignity and new opportunities for participation and inclusion in family, school and community life.

Library remembers true ‘Friend’ Thanks to the voters in Ingham County, the Capital Area District Library (CADL) millage has been renewed for another four years. Despite decreased revenues due to falling property values, CADL is committed to doing more with less. That means we will continue to provide the communities we serve with excellent services, essential technologies and exciting programs. From all of us at CADL, thank you for your generous support. The subject of support is a timely one, as I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the passing of one of our most ardent supporters, and a true gem in the Mason community: Onnolee “Lee” Burton, who passed away at the age of 90 on July 10, following a long illness. Lee’s service to the Mason Library is a long and dedicated one. She served as treasurer of the Friends group,

At the library Sheryl Bass

and later as president. Being a Library Friend was a volunteer opportunity tailor made for Lee, an avid reader and book lover. The Friends’ used bookstore, Bookworm Heaven, became her domain. She recruited other volunteers and located sources of used books, eventually turning a haphazard collection into an orderly bookstore, which she personally helped organize and maintain well into her 90th year. Lee also recruited volunteers for the Friends’ semi-annual book sale, plant sale and art sale, which continue to be major fundraising events. She was a strong advocate for the Mason Library and en-

couraged the Friends to use proceeds for the repair and upkeep of the library building as well as for programs, helping ensure a pleasant, safe and engaging environment for library users. Lee Burton believed in the mission of libraries, and understood that a strong and vibrant public library is the cornerstone of a vital and stable community. Staff and patrons of the Mason Library couldn’t have asked for a better “Friend.” Lee would have been delighted by the community’s vote of confidence in the library. She will be missed by us all. The Mason Library, a Capital Area District Library, is located at 145 W. Ash St. For information about our hours, programs or services, call (517) 676-9088 or visit Sheryl Bass is the head librarian at the Mason Library.

CADL millage renewal gets thumbs up

Voters pass county and school millage requests By CHRISTIE BLECK

LESLIE — Leslie Public Schools Superintendent Corey Netzley is thrilled over the Aug. 3 election results. The renewal operating millage through 2020, levying 17.0617 mills, passed handily, 716-559 (56 percent of 44 percent). Maybe more importantly, the additional 0.9383 mill needed for the school district to receive the full 18 mills allowed by the state passed, 653-607 (52 percent to 48 percent). It was the sixth try to get the fully allowed millage, according to Netzley. “Gee, I can’t think of enough good things to say,”

Netzley noted about the election. Netzley credited the oneon-contact between school staff and volunteers in getting the word out. She also said there’s been a “raised level of knowledge” in the past year of how difficult funding has been for school districts. Netzley said that although property values change from year to year, she estimated the increased millage will bring in an added $35,000 annually for the district. “This allows us now to get at least the minimal funding by the state,” she said.

Mayhem rules at Spartan Speedway races DELHI TWP. — July 30 was the night that race fans had marked on their calendars as soon as the 2010 schedule of events was made final. The fans love to watch competitors wreck stuff — on purpose. Spartan Speedway hosted its biggest “night of destruction” yet, and first on the docket were the Pony Stock 20-lap features, with cars running three- and four-wide through the corners. Brittany Toth and Scott Spahr brought the field to green, with Spahr as the lap one leader. Wayne Parkhurst II took the lead on lap two, but Ken Dollarhite made a bonsai move to the inside to take the spot away. Joe Bates and Rich Roberts began their march to the front and Roberts took the lead on lap 12, with Bates moving into second one lap later. Roberts opened up a pretty good lead and Bates was able to reel Roberts in, but at the line, it was Roberts, Bates, Dollarhite, Mike Westphal and Parkhurst II. In the A-Feature, Darrell Taylor took a commanding lead, at the green, with Darren Wright holding down second. The hounds were barking at his heels though. Edson Rowley III took the long way around and drove into the second position leaving Wright to fend off Todd Metz Sr., Patrick Denison and Wayne Beckner Jr. Rowley clicked off the laps as he began to cut the gap between

himself and Taylor. Rowley had closed on Taylor’s bumper, when Beckner Jr. made a run at Rowley to take away the second position. Beckner set his sights on Taylor, from the high side, and took the lead on lap 16. At the stripe, it was Beckner, Taylor, Metz Jr., Denison and Rowley. Heat winners for the evening were Parkhurst II, Rich Roberts, and Metz Jr.

Flagpole race First up was the Flagpole race for six- and eight-cylinder competitors. Three large tractor tire “flagpoles” were placed strategically about the quarter-mile race track. The drivers started from a deadstop on the front stretch, circled around to the back stretch, maneuvered around the outside of the first “pole” and cut through the infield via the Figure 8 track. A sharp right was made at the intersection and drivers had to circle the second “pole” in turn three, at the end of the Figure 8 straightaway, in a counter-clockwise direction, with either the circler, or merging traffic, having to yield. Then it was back to the front stretch to circle the “pole” placed on the start finish line. The first driver to complete six laps would win. The green flag waved and Ron Haynes of Vassar dominated after a lap or two, winning the race. Jim Gokee and Trent Jenson came home second and third,

respectively. The Pony Stock segment of the Flagpole race saw Scott Sparagowski of Michigan Center take the win. Nine ponies lined up to go in tight little circles, and when the green flag waved, mayhem ensued. No one could remember for certain which way to go after circling the “poles,” so Jim Leasure and race director Bill Lackey, took the ponies on an impromptu game of follow-the-leader, just to remind them how the “flow” of flag pole racing went. Once the green flag waved again, Ken Dollarhite took the lead but Scott Sparagowski ducked under Dollarhite, hugging the front stretch tire, and took the lead from a dominant Dollarhite. Sparagowski went on to stretch his lead out by executing tight circles around the “flagpoles,” where timing is everything. Dollarhite had to settle for second, followed by Patrick Denison in third.

Pony Stock Figure 8 Thirteen Pony Stock drivers put their race cars on the line and tested their mettle by running the 12-lap Pony Stock Figure 8. Rich Roberts led wire to wire, in spite of a red flag, for a collision at the intersection between Pony Figure 8 specialist Edson Rowley III and Pony Stock regular Misty Allen, thus adding to the carnage portion of the evening’s events.

George Garza was able to keep pace with Roberts, when the green waved again, but ran out of laps. At the checkered, it was Roberts, Garza, Joe Bates, Ken Dollarhite and Wayne Parkhurst II.

School Bus Figure 8

sure and Ken Dollarhite. Trailers and tow vehicles on the Figure 8 ended the vening. Ten souls risked the “specialty” trailers they had towed to the track, specifically for this event, and the trailers ranged from the ordinary boat trailers with boats (or a bike) to a yellow submarine, a sub hunter (complete with pyrotechnics) and a UFO. One red flag was flown as Joe Bates smashed into the back of a speedboat that was “dead in the water” and lying near the Figure 8 intersection. Afterward, the track littered with trailer parts and their “accessories,” the win was to be decided by Trent Jenson with his “hunting boat” and Dave Thorburn and his UFO. Thorburn came home the winner, sans UFO, which got knocked off and dragged around the track under Edson Rowley’s tow vehicle earlier in the competition, leaving the little alien rider in the bed of Dave’s truck without a ride home. A special Sunday show is slated for Sunday, Aug. 8. This show will feature a Super Late Model 75 and Slugfest No. 4 for Pure and Pony Stocks. Pures and Ponies will also run on the Figure 8. Racing will begin at 6 p.m. Check out the Spartan Speedway website,, for more information.

The ultimate example of doorhandle to door-handle racing is the School Bus Figure 8. The track was littered with bus parts by the time the checkered waved. One red flag for a collision at the intersection for Kitsmiller RV driver, “The Disturbed One” Dane Long, and Valvoline Instant Oil Change driver, Bob “White Bread” Cantine, resulted in a race delay as the condition of both of the drivers, as well as the condition of the backstretch wall and the buses, was checked. Long continued and Cantine retired for the evening. With plenty of beating and banging going on, Chris Taylor in the Liquid Web bus clawed his way into the lead. Culligan’s “Hey Culligan Man” Chris Hoffman issued a last-ditch effort to take that lead away, but Taylor was able to hang on for the win. Long worked his way up from the back of the pack to finish third. Other competitors included Deb Loughan in the Beacon Sales “Gurple” bus, Jim Custer driving the Beekman Bobcats bus (which also won the best-looking bus contest) Michelle Sprague covers motorand two Spartan Speedway sponsored buses driven by Trevor Lea- sports for LSJ Media.

Post 205 sluggers advance to World Series By BILL McLEOD

August 8, 2010

KANKAKEE — East Lansing Post 205 baseball took top honors in the Palomino North Zone regional, earning an invitation to the World Series in San Jose, Calif. Post 205 won four of their five games at the regional, held in Kankakee, Ill., on July 28-Aug. 1. Williamston’s Tyler Watters delivered the big blow for Post 205 in the regional

opener against a team from Minnesota, smashing a tworun go-ahead homer in the bottom of the fifth inning to give East Lansing a 7-5 win. Dylan Monette, another Williamston player, was the winning pitcher, going five innings. The Hornet righthanded thrower has a 5-2 season record. Portland St. Patrick’s Tyler Smith pitched two innings in relief for the save. St. Johns’ Ryan Joy ripped a bases-loaded dou-

ble to drive in three runs. Mason’s Allen Manyen was 2-for-2 with a double and drove in a run. Williamston’s Nic Jump had a double. Post 205 lost the second game of the regional, falling 3-2 to Midlothian, a team from Illinois. Lansing Catholic’s Chuck DeClarke pitched the first six innings. Sexton’s Clay Harmon took the loss, working the final 1 1/3 innings. St. Johns’ Jared Nurenberg led the offensive at-

tack for Post 205, driving in two runs with two hits. DeClarke, Manyen and Joy each had two hits. Post 205 got back on the winning track in the third game of the regionals, besting the Kankakee Americans 12-11 on July 30. St. Johns pitcher Jacob Pearsall got the win and Harmon picked up the save. Pearsall has a 6-1 season record. Joy blasted a three-run homer. St. Johns slugger Jake Robinson was 2-for-3

with a double and scored three runs. DeClarke was 2-for-2. Post 205 clenched the North Zone title by defeating Kankakee 6-5 in the semifinal and then routing Midlothian 14-8. In the semifinal, DeClarke doubled and hit a home run. He scored three runs and drove in one. Robinson was 2-for-3 and scored twice. Nurenberg had a double and drove in two runs. Robinson and DeClarke

each homered in the North Zone final win over Midlothian. Robinson drove in two runs while DeClarke scored three runs and drove in two. Watters, Manyen and B. J. Salazar of Lansing Eastern each had two hits and both in a run. Post 205 played the winner from the South Zone in the World Series on Aug. 6 with results too late for this edition. Last year Post 205 finished eighth in the Series.

Several years ago a local pilot took me on a trip in a biplane from Mason Jewett Airport. Apart from a little motion sickness near the end, it was a swell thing to do. I was no Amelia Earhart or Pancho Barnes, but being in an open cockpit was as close as I was going to get to being a vintage aviatrix. Last summer I was a passenger in a “ride-around” of about 10 laps in a stock car at Spartan Speedway in Delhi Township. Centrifugal force had its way with me, but again, the experience was enjoyable.

ally). Fortunately, we didn’t capsize into the weeds. With other volunteers, I helped push the 235-pound balloon in the bag, and off we went for a celebratory non-alcoholic post-ride visit to Tom’s house. I highly recommend going to the festival where, weather permitting, balloons are scheduled to take off at 7:15 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14. Watching a multitude of giant, colorful, inflated orbs taking to the sky is well worth the trip. FACEBOOK UPDATE: The phrase “social networking” has worked its way into my lexicon over the last year. It is a bit of a redundancy. I mean, if you’re networking, you’re social, and vice versa, correct? Now it means being part of a Web-based community of like-minded individuals/groups who share your affinity for being social while sitting at a computer, home alone. That’s OK by me, a world-class mutation of socialness and lonerdom. Facebook has launched me into the fascinating and lightning-fast world of Bejeweled Blitz, of which I can take part while chatting online with a friend from high school I haven’t seen in about 30 years. (By the way, I recently broke the 350,000 mark, which is chump stuff for certain other players but my alltime high.) It’s also frustrated me in that I’ve gotten stuck on one level of Bubble Island. But without having to spend money on a long-distance phone call or having to craft a hand-written letter with my increasingly rotten penmanship, I can share YouTube videos of a tiny floating hedgehog, a presumably beginning band butchering the theme to “2001: A Space Odyssey” and the full-length version of Emerson, Lake and Palmer’s “Fanfare for the Common Man.” My friends

This is the view of the Ingham County Fair as I saw it from a hot-air balloon. Were the Ferris wheel riders looking at me?

“I got a bird’s-eye view of the Ingham County Fair, many deer scampering through farm fields, free-range chickens and cyclists getting their exercise on country roads.” – Christie Bleck can upload embarrassing photos of their grade school years and that party where they just had one too many. The city of Mason too is getting in on the act. In fact, it has a “City of Mason, Michigan” page where you can learn that a “sour gas” smell resulting oil and gas wells located southwest of Mason can spell trouble for the olfactory senses if the wind shifts the wrong way. It also has a “Mason, Michigan-Local Business” page

that includes posts such as “Mason is...Hot. Hot. Hot!” (from July 23) and a regular “Mason, Michigan” page where you get the Wikipedia account of the city. Mason High School and its alternative program, Summit High School, also are on Facebook. It’s the thing to do. Christie Bleck is editor of the Ingham County Community News. Next on her list of things to try is sky diving...maybe.

My latest George Plimpton (the late, great participatory journalist) undertaking was being taken up in a hotair balloon by local pilot Tom Bergeon, who seems to know every Mason landmark from high up. Hot-air balloons are to be featured at the Aug. 14-15 parish/community festival at St. James Catholic Church, 1010 S. Lansing St. Participants had to get in some pre-fest training putting up and taking down the balloons. However, Tom was kind enough to ask if I wanted a free ride. Although I’m cursed with a mild case of high anxiety, I decided to go for it. Tom, another passenger and I lifted off from St. James and took a trip that ended up somewhere in Vevay Township, I think. I kept thinking to myself that all I had to do to make a fatal plunge was to just hop out of the basket. But, I stayed inside for the ride. I was glad I did. I got a bird’s-eye view of the Ingham County Fair, many deer scampering through farm fields, freerange chickens and cyclists getting their exercise on country roads. I made sure I kept both hands securely holding on to something for most of the trip, and never did get the nerve to peer over the basket’s edge. However, just as I was getting used to the ride, we landed, with several very large thumps (this was the scariest part of the ride, actu-
