Leslie passes Teen aims for ‘16 Olympics Is a world champ medical pot in taekwondo moratorium By CHRISTIE BLECK



LESLIE — The Leslie City Council has adopted a 180-day moratorium on medical marijuana-related businesses while it seeks to clarify details such as zoning. The council on Oct. 5 passed the measure so the city can study the implications of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act. In 2008 state voters passed the law that allows registered caregivers to grow a limited number of plants for patients with prescriptions for the drug. However, Leslie City Manager Brian Reed noted at the council meeting, “There was very little thought as to how that was going to roll out.” Many communities have struggled with how to regulate marijuana-related businesses. For example, the Williamston City Council on Sept. 27 passed a temporary moratorium while the city works on local ordinances. Reed said that Leslie is not yet prepared to understand how the law fits into local zoning. The moratorium, he said, gives the city time to research implications and be given guidance on how to regulate businesses. Reed said that after the moratorium is completed and the issue is studied, a report then can be presented to the council. City Attorney Mark Grua said the Court of Appeals decided on Sept. 14 that the law doesn’t permit the right to sell marijuana. Grua said he agreed with the city’s moratorium. “I think it’s an appropriate response at this time,” he said. Mayor Pro Tem Randy Fox questioned whether the moratorium prevents users from smoking medical marijuana in their homes. “I don’t think it’s anybody’s business what people are doing in their home, legal or not,” Fox said. Reed stressed that the city isn’t regulating personal issue and that the issue is “still evolving.” Grua also pointed out that users can’t be prosecuted if they’re compliant with the law.

MASON — Alex Mize knows she’s involved in a sport with which not many people are familiar. But that doesn’t keep her from pursuing her Olympic dream. The 18-year-old Mason teen spent Aug. 9-15 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., learning new tactics in her chosen sport, taekwondo. Mize already was a notable in the sport, having won the title of world champion in sparring in the 17-29 age group in the American Taekwondo Association’s world championships in Little Rock, Ark., in June. In August, Mize took part in an athletic development camp so coaches could train promising taekwondo athletes. Mize practiced three times a day and was trained in tactics, but it was in an inspiring environment. “There’s, like, Olympic rings everywhere,” she said. “It’s like your goal is so close.” (There also was the added inducement of seeing the beautiful Rocky Mountains outside her window — the best part of being at the Olympic Training Center, Mize said.) Mize took part in lots of conditioning, she said, but also learned about using electronic body protectors, which allow scoring by electronics instead of judges. Taekwondo is a martial art similar to judo and karate. How similar they are depends with whom you speak. “People argue about it all the time,” said Mize, who noted there are subtle differences between the sports, all of which originated in Asia. Taekwondo, Mize pointed out,

This is Alex Mize in one of her taekwondo moves at the Olympic Training Center.

“You have to hit them hard enough to injure them.” – Alex Mize means “the way of the head and foot” in Korean. Mize said that in taekwondo, athletes participate in three twominute rounds and can hit above the belt and not on the spine. One point is awarded for kicking and punching the body, two points are awarded for a turning kick and three points are given for a blow to the head. And then, a competitor, Mize said, has to hit with a “trembling shock.” “You have to hit them hard enough to injure them,” she explained, with the ultimate goal of knocking out the competitor.

If that sounds rough, Mize stressed, “If both fighters are skilled, it’s hard to knock them out.” Meaning, if you train right, you won’t get hurt. And that’s what Mize is trying to do: train right.

‘Will and determination’ Mize started the sport at age 10 with Larry Daft at Mason Martial Arts. “Alex has the will and determination to succeed,” said Larry’s wife, Valerie, of the third-degree black belt. Mize trained with the Dafts until about a year and a half ago. She now trains with the MSU Taekwondo Club under coach Ron Southwick. Mize said she hopes to compete at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. That means more training. “It’s a game,” Mize said. “If you want to be good at it, you have to learn the rules.”

Letters to the editor Favors Kean

Voters in Vevay Township have an excellent opportunity to elect a candidate who has the desire to serve. Candie Oesterle is a 10-year veteran of the township office who is well-versed in the day-to-day operation there. She too is a fully accredited and certified election administrator who has assisted in the election process in past years. Since June she has had “hands-on” experience in helping with many of the clerk’s duties including, but not limited to, payroll, accounts payable and receivable, filing necessary state and federal reports, assisting with board minutes. Along with this, she has been the full-time secretary and deputy treasurer. I urge the residents of Vevay Township to vote for the candidate who has proven herself. She is a “team player” and works well with office staff, which is vital for a smooth running office. She honestly cares about the citizens of the township. She will have my vote. Jim Luks Mason

The right to vote has been focus of the Civil Rights Movement and the Women’s Right Movement. Why? Because the act of voting can change the landscape of any community and any nation. The office of the clerk has more increasing demands and statutory duties than any other office, and for this reason it is critical that the person selected as Vevay Township clerk is a person who can diligently monitor changes in election law, procedures and requirements and administer elections with integrity. The Ingham County Republican Party selected JoAnne Kean as our representative to perform this important duty. The Republican Party joins with former Vevay Township clerk, Susan Kosier, in endorsing JoAnne. Linda Lee Tarver Chair Ingham County Republican Party

We would like to extend our support to Candie Oesterle for the office of Vevay Township clerk. We have known Candie for many years and can attest to her integrity, honesty, hard work and commitment not only to the people of Vevay Township but to her family, friends and the community of Mason. We have witnessed Candie’s dedication to her job not only as a Vevay Township employee but also when she was our church secretary for several years. Candie always has a pleasant smile and kind demeanor when she helps people at the township office. We are 100 percent behind Candie in her quest for the Vevay Township clerk position. Gerry and Carol Van Douser Mason

Vevay Township functioning sans clerk By CHRISTIE BLECK

VEVAY TWP. — Vevay Township has been operating without an official clerk since June, and Supervisor Ron Weesies wants residents to

know the situation. Weesies said that former clerk Susan Kosier resigned on June 1 for health reasons, although she had planned to carry out her two-year term. However, that was after the May deadline for

candidates to sign up for the August primary. The board, according to Weesies, had to pick a clerk by July 15. That board, Weesies said, was split 2-2 between JoAnne Kean and Candie Oesterle. Weesies said the county

clerk, who has the right to call for a special election, sent letters to the Republican and Democratic parties asking them to submit a candidate by Aug. 4. Republican delegates decided on Kean while

Democrats made no selection, Weesies said. Oesterle later filed paperwork to be on the Nov. 2 ballot under “no party affiliation.” In the meantime, Weesies said Kean, who was deputy clerk, has acted

as elections clerk. He and township Treasurer Shaun Sherwood have been filling in with general clerk duties. “We have been limping along,” Weesies said. “It’s just important the township does have a clerk.”

ccording to Norton Anti-Virus, 65 percent of people have been a victim of cybercrime and computer hacking. In the poll, some Internet surfers expect to be victimized, while only 3 percent think cybercrime won’t happen to them. Nine percent think they are”‘ very safe” online. Sixty-five percent — seven out of 10 — have been violated by cybercrime, according to the Norton Cybercrime Report. Large amounts of money and Social Security numbers have been stolen, right on down to your MySpace or Twitter being hacked.

Font door open? The point is: You wouldn’t leave the front door to your house wide open, would you? You certainly wouldn’t leave the keys to your brand new 2010 BMW in the ignition, would you? Would you leave your savings account receipt in the garbage, without tearing it up first? I didn’t think so. So why do we think it’s

Tech Trends Chris Wardell

OK to leave our PCs, WiFi or networks unprotected? Most people can’t even put a face to their intruders, which makes the problem all the more frustrating. Computer hacking has become more sophisticated, and long gone is the brainy, singular person working alone to hack into your network for the fun of it. Think more along the lines of well-organized, underground crime syndicates. They work together in numbers and more than likely, are spread out worldwide. These hackers will get what they want, and they will use special software to get your private information and seize your computer. They will steal your identity without a second thought. If you shop, bank or post photos online, you

are putting yourself at risk of cybercrime. They don’t just target one person. Just like any other crime, the victims are faceless, nameless, as are the cyber-bullies.

The emotional costs Besides having to deal with the hassle of changing all of your information and trying to recoup some of your money, there will be emotional turmoil as well. You will feel violated, upset and defenseless, while putting the blame squarely on yourself.

Common sense You can protect yourself with some simple common sense. Make sure your wireless router is password-protected. Never leave your password as something simple like “password” or “admin,” or “home.” Make sure it’s

SOUND Solutions

These days, the “less-is-more” principle dictates that we set aside CD players for iPods and talk into razor-thin cell phones. While small certainly has its advantages, sometimes larger is more. Among hearing instruments, in-the-ear and in-the-canal models offer the advantage of being barely noticeable. On the other hand, a traditional behind-the-ear model may be larger but it is also more powerful, easier to use, and makes use of longer-lasting batteries.

11 Between Sept. 28 and Oct. 4, Mason police investigated 55 reported incidents involving a variety of activities, both criminal and noncriminal. These are some of those incidents worth noting and intended to keep citizens informed of department activities.

Toning it down Sept. 28: Officers were dispatched to a residence where neighbors reported loud music and arguing. When they arrived, they found four adults sitting on the porch enjoying a beer and listening to music. The four reported another resident of the home was talking loudly but no argument took place. This was confirmed with the loud talker, and everyone agreed to quiet down.

tions. The source also claimed to have just inherited $177 million, which was in a bank vault, and needed the fax recipient to claim the funds. All that was needed was the recipient’s information for the fax sender to process the claim. Nice try, but it didn’t work. The complaint has been forwarded to the appropriate federal agency for review.

Officers proactive

Sept 28: The code enforcement officer opened three investigations for Nuisance Code violations for: blighted property in the 100 block of East Oak Street and 500 block of South Jefferson Street, and brush piles in the 100 block of North Rogers Street.

Sept. 29: Officers were called to a Mason home where a woman and child reside who reported hearing someone trying to enter the residence. The officers recognized the address and knew the complainant recently has had domestic troubles with a former boyfriend. They found no sign of an attempted entry or a prowler. They did note, however, that the residence’s exterior had no lighting, so they assisted by replacing burnt-out bulbs so the resident could see outside in the dark. They also took time to cover up a window through which a prowler could see inside without being detected.

Fraud fails

Mason police report Continued from previous page

and, later, the caller asked the victim to withdraw $1,000 from her credit card account, deposit it into her bank account and await instructions. The victim suspected a fraud but attempted the transfer until convinced not to do so by bank staff. They referred the victim to Mason police to make a fraud report. The credit card was canceled before any fraudulent charges could be made. Further investigation will be conducted. Oct. 1: An officer was called to a Mason home where the resident complained the wrecker driver repossessing a car drove it on a flat tire, which could damage the rim. The complainant also reported the driver moved another vehicle parked in the way by disconnecting the drive shaft but reconnected it when the move was done. The officer informed the matter would be civil and should be taken up with the finance company.

Report unfounded Oct. 1: Officers were called to a Mason business after a caller made a report of a small child being molested inside a restroom. The complainant stated a female patron reported finding a small child inside a women’s restroom, then changed the story to finding the child inside a men’s room after investigating the sounds of someone crying. The woman was contacted and informed police she had heard the child crying, entered the men’s room to investigate and found a suspect molesting the child. She gave a vivid recounting of what she claimed to have witnessed.

The suspect, the child and parents were all located and interviewed separately, and no evidence of the alleged molestation was found. What was finally determined was the intoxicated witness (.19 breath-alcohol level) had already made some heinous accusations about the alleged suspect and his friend — which had been reported to the manager by the two men before this incident was reported — including claiming the friend was her son, which the friend denied. Later review of the video recordings inside the business determined the alleged suspect and the child never came into contact, but the witness was seen to come across the child outside the women’s restroom and walk her inside. The matter remains under investigation.

Missing person found Oct. 1: Officers responded to a parking lot near Kipp and Cedar after a caller reported an elderly female with no teeth was there, was acting strange and needed to be checked out. Officers found the woman and soon determined she was an endangered missing person from Leslie. Leslie police were notified, and arrangements were made to have the caregiver respond to the officer’s location. The victim was turned over to this caregiver, and the missing person alert was cancelled.

Vandals caught Oct. 2: Officers and a state trooper were dispatched to Laylin Park for vandalism in progress. The complainant reported three juveniles turning over picnic tables and chucking two tables into the pond. Officers found the trio attempting to hide in the trees north of the park and returned them to the scene. They reported two of the three committed the vandalism while the third refused to participate, telling the two they were stupid. One officer took pictures of the scene as evidence then convinced the pair to set things right, which they did by turning tables back over and retrieving the two tables from the pond, putting them in the spot they formerly had occupied. All three were taken home to parents, and the report will be submitted for review of charges.

Cruise control culprit? Oct. 3: An officer cutting across town on U.S. 127 happened behind a northbound vehicle swerving in its lane, crossing the fog line several times. When the car was stopped and the driver contacted, the officer was greeted with an overpowering odor of perfume emanating from the vehicle’s interior — a common ploy used to disguise the odors of marijuana and alcohol. When asked from where she was coming, the driver refused to tell because she

Oct. 2: Officers were called to a liquor establishment where some disorderly persons had been cut off from consumption of alcohol by management and were refusing to leave. The officers found the group and determined one person was upset because he didn’t know why they’d been cut off.

Oct. 2: An officer received an embezzlement report from a Mason business. The manager reported an employee taking money from the business and being documented doing so on video. After completing the interviews, the suspect surrendered most of the cash back, reporting financial difficulties for his family as his motive.

thought she would be arrested and claimed she was swerving in her lane because she did not have cruise control. However, the officer was able to determine the driver’s .10 percent breath-alcohol level — a result of having consumed alcohol at her place of employment, a strip club in Jackson — was more responsible for the erratic driving he had witnessed than was the lack of amenities on the vehicle. The driver was arrested and lodged in the Ingham County Jail; the car, impounded.

MASON — The Mason City Council has tabled action on 10 traffic-control orders that would have changed the speed limits on various streets. The council decided to send the issue back to the city Traffic Commission to review and make recommendations before it takes action. Councilmember Leslie Bruno, Jr., said that’s standard procedure. “Usually they’re reviewed by them before they come to us,” Bruno said. Traffic Engineering Associates, Inc., based in Grand Ledge, prepared traffic-control orders for speed limit

changes for a special study presented at the Sept. 7 council meeting. City Attorney Dennis McGinty said that the state requires that traffic rules have to be supported by a study. “If we don’t agree, we could be pulling the rug out from under our cops,” councilmember Neal Johnson said. Councilmember Michael Waltz suggested that instead of increasing speed limits, it might be more appropriate for the Mason Police Department to make traffic stops “instead of increasing it (the speed limit) as if to say it’s OK.” The traffic-control orders would have been for these streets: West Columbia, East

Columbia, Jefferson, Okemos, Kerns, Cedar, South, Lansing, Barnes and Temple. Speed limits would have been changed on various stretches of those streets. They include: • a maximum speed limit of 45 mph on Jefferson from the intersecting center line of Howell Road to half a mile south of the center line of Howell. • a speed limit of 35 mph on Okemos from the north city limits to the intersecting center line of Columbia. • on Kerns Road, a speed limit of 45 mph from the intersecting center line of Howell Road to the intersecting center line of Cedar Street (M-36).

• on South, a speed limit of 45 mph from the west city limits to the west side of the bridge deck structure over U.S. 127. • on Barnes, 35 mph from a point 400 feet south of the intersecting center line of Bond Street to the intersecting center line of Kipp Road. • on Temple, 35 mph from the intersecting center line of Ash Street (M-36) to the intersecting center line of Kipp Road. Not all residents were pleased with several of the proposed speed limit increases. John Sabbadin, who lives on Lansing Street, noted that paramedic class attendance is up at the Lansing Area

race, expressed displeasure of the proposed increase from 25 mph to 35 mph on South Cedar from South to Kipp. They made note of school buses picking up and dropping off students on South Cedar at South as well as parents entering and leaving the St. James Catholic Church parking lot during soccer season. “If the speed is increased to 35 mph it will be much more difficult to exit from any of the residential areas, as well as the professional offices, located on S.

Sabbadin argued that the speed limit should be 35 mph, not 45 mph. “You get 25 people flying out of that parking lot,” he said. Mayor Pro Tem Robin Naeyaert also pointed out the close proximity of the Patterson Veterinary Hospital and the shelter Angel House. “Those three driveways are right together,” Naeyaert said, “and if you have people leaving at the same time, it’s a major concern.” In a Sept. 16 letter addressed to Mayor Leon Clark, Jim and Robyn Sheely, who live on Hartwell Ter-

Mason sophomore Tyler Raab (15) shields the ball from a Haslett defender during the Bulldogs’ 4-2 win over the Vikings in the regular-season finale on Oct. 5. Raab scored a goal and assisted on two others in the game.

“They finished, which was good, and had a couple of weaknesses in the back that we can make into coaching moments.” – Mason head coach Nick Binder and sent him in clean on goal with a perfectly timed ball over the top. Raab pushed it past the helpless Viking keeper to make the score 3-1 with 35:51 left in the game. Raab returned the favor on Mason’s fourth goal, when he took the ball square from the top of the box, and then glided past three Haslett defenders to gain the byline on the left wing. Raab flicked the ball with the outside of his right foot to Rogers, who scored with his right knee to make the score 4-1 with 22:48 left on the clock. Haslett scored a late goal on another poor clearance by Mason’s back line, when a free kick from 50 yards led to a wide-open shot

right in front on which Flamme had no chance that did little but flatter Haslett with a final score of 4-2. Binder said that the injuries to his team led him to switch his lineup around. “We tried some different things,” Binder said. “Maybe not by choice, but we found a couple of things tonight, so hopefully that can give us more options as we get some guys back.” Mason will continue its CAAC Cup run at home on Tuesday, Oct. 12 against either Lansing Catholic or Okemos and finish it on Thursday, Oct. 14 against either Holt, Charlotte, DeWitt or St. Johns, with the venue to be determined by results.

HASLETT -- Mason ended its boys soccer regular season the right way, with a 4-2 win at Haslett on Oct. 5. Zach Rogers scored two goals and assisted on another in the game and Tyler Raab had a goal and two assists to help improve the Bulldogs to 14-1-3 going into the CAAC Cup tournament. That tournament began with a game against Lansing Everett on Oct. 8, after this paper went to press. Mason head coach Nick Binder said that he liked what he saw in most of the contest. “The guys all played hard,” Binder said. “They finished, which was good, and had a couple of weaknesses in the back that we can make into coaching moments.” That finishing started early, as the Bulldogs found the mark less than six minutes into the contest when Peter Brandenburg found some space on the left wing. Brandenburg sent in a sweet cross that Rogers headed home to make the score 1-0 with 34:16 left in the first half. Haslett came back with its best chance of the half four minutes later, as a shot by Ranga Mutatu from just outside the box forced Mason goalkeeper Jacob Derby to make a leaping save and tip the ball over the bar. That would be the last time that Derby would be troubled in the game, as Mason dominated possession until the second half. Wilson scored Mason’s second goal with 2:46 left in the half on a blast from the 18-yard line that the Haslett keeper got a finger to, but couldn’t keep out of the net, and the Bulldogs took a 2-0 lead into the second half. Josh Flamme took over for Derby in the Mason goal in the second half, and was greeted rudely by the Vikings, who sent a long ball into the Bulldog penalty area immediately after the break. Mason’s defense failed to clear it, leading to a somewhat fluky rebound goal for Haslett that made the score 2-1 just 1:36 after the break. Rogers helped get the Bulldogs their two-goal lead back when he saw Raab making a diagonal run

Mason tennis topples Orioles By SCOTT YOSHONIS

MASON — Mason gained momentum for the boys tennis regionals with a 7-1 non-league dual win over Charlotte in the regular-season finale on Oct. 5. The Division 3 regional tournament was played on Oct. 7, and was not completed before press time. Cody Pavlat won his match in first singles 6-1, 6-2, Jacob Cochran fell in second singles 2-6, 4-6, Ryan Beebe took the third singles flight for Mason 6-2, 6-2 and Charlotte defaulted the fourth singles flight, since they only have 11 players on the roster. Loren Shattuck and Andy Brouillette took the top doubles flight 7-6, 6-0, Derick Hearit and Samuel

VanDyke won second doubles 6-3, 6-3, Aaron Brown and Brendan Martin took third doubles 6-1, 6-0 and Nicholas Gandhi and Michael Schon prevailed 6-1, 6-2 in fourth doubles. Mason head coach Dee McCaffrey said, “We were missing a guy, so we moved some guys around and they all responded well.” McCaffrey said that he’s confident going into the regionals. “Most of the teams, we’ve had on the schedule, and as we’ve watched our team scores throughout the year, they all seem to have progressed.” If the Bulldogs finished in the top two at the regionals, they will play as a team at the Division 3 State Finals at Kalamazoo College beginning Friday, Oct. 15.

MASON — Ten local students from Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties were recently awarded grand prizes for their participation over the summer in the Passport to Adventure program developed by the Keep Learning initiative. This program was designed to encourage students and their parents to continue the learning process over the summer. The program focused on outgoing fourth-grade students, as research indicates that this is the first age at which students might begin to lose interest in their education. Grand prizes winners included: Anna Rue, North Aurelius Elementary (Mason) and Lulu Firestone,

Heritage Elementary (Stockbridge) who both won an Apple iPod; Paul Harris, Bath Elementary (Bath) and Kaitlyn Poe, Steele Street Elementary (Mason) who both won a Flip HD digital camcorder; Fisher Welch, Wexford Elementary (Lansing) and Victoria Herceg, Kinawa Middle School (Okemos) who both won a Kodak digital camera; Robert Stehlik, East Olive Elementary (St. Johns) won a Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader; Sam Zayko, Vera Ralya Elementary (Haslett) won the Wii gaming system; Tara Flanagan, Pleasant View Elementary (Lansing) won the Toshiba net book computer; and the Apple iPad was awarded to Carmen Austin, Wacousta Elementary (Grand Ledge).

Students were asked to attend at least eight of the 13 venues that participated and have their passport stamped after touring the facility and answering a trivia question about something they would have learned during their visit. Once the students had received at least eight stamps in the passport, they were able to return a postcard to be entered into the drawing for the grand prizes. Venues included such locations as Impression 5 Science Center, the State Capitol and the Michigan Historical Museum. Prizes were made available because of grants received from Jackson National Community Foundation and the Capital Region

Community Foundation. “This was a wonderful opportunity to spend some time with my daughter over the summer uncovering some of the gems we have right here in our own community,” par-

ent Linda Flanagan said. “I think it is important that our children continue their learning throughout the summer, and this was a great program to accomplish that.” Keep Learning . . . is a

Boy Bulldogs first in Red league jamboree By SCOTT YOSHONIS

DELTA TWP. — Mason’s cross country teams each posted encouraging results at the CAAC Red league jamboree in Jackson on Oct. 6. The Bulldogs won the meet on the boys’ side, while the girls placed a creditable fourth in the event hosted by Lumen Christi at Ella Sharp Park. Tanner Hinkle led the way for the Mason boys,

who took four of the top five places in the race on the way to 22 points, 32 ahead of second-place Lumen Christi. Hinkle won the race with a time of 16:14.1, 16 seconds ahead of the field. Joe Cecil, Mason VanDyke and Alex Whitmer finished 3-4-5, with times of 16:31.9, 16:33.6 and 16:49.3, respectively. Jacob Hansen rounded out the scorers for the Bulldogs, finishing ninth overall with a time of 17:20.9.

Mason’s girls finished in fourth place as a team with 80 points, three points behind third-place Jackson Northwest and only seven points out of second place. “That’s a big improvement,” Mason girls coach Jamie Latimer said. “Great weather led to several career or season records for the girls.” Abbey Soule was the first across for the Bulldogs with a time of 19:53.3, which was good for sixth place overall.

Cassidy Hass was less than one second from breaking 20 minutes with a 20:00.7, good for eighth overall. “I don’t expect to see the 20-minute barrier in her future for much longer,” Latimer said. Ashley Yallop and Karley Miller finished 20th and 21st with times of 21:34.1 and 21:37.0, respectively, and Nadia Riggs was the last scorer for Mason, posting a time of 22:18.4, which Latimer said was two seconds

“Great weather led to several career or season records for the girls.” – Mason girls cross country coach Jamie Latimer off of her personal best. Latimer also said that she hopes that the good feelings generated by her team’s performance will give them confidence with the state

tournament coming up. “I think it was very beneficial for the girls to run on the course they will visit again for regionals,” she said.

Mason Class of 1922 and Anchora, Part Deux T

he Mason High School Class of 1922 is continuing to be perused by yours truly. It’s easy to do so with a copy of its yearbook, the Anchora. Previously I touched on a few classmates with distinguished names, such as Gibbins Howlett. Now I’m on to other prey. Harold Paine, senior, nickname “Painey,” was a

member of the football team from 1920-21 (don’t know what happened in ‘22), and the “M” Club, was involved with the junior play and last but not least was president of the Hot Lunch Club. Maybe this organization’s goal was to bring a monthly meal of hot stew/ hot dogs/hot soup to Mason High School. In my primary school years (first, second and third grades at a Catholic school), we had periodic hot lunches consisting of hot dogs and our condiments of choice. (I recall my preferred combo of mustard and on-

ions was met with some scoffing.) Anyway, hot lunches were a big deal, and this was in the 1960s, not the 1920s, so I can imagine the thrill of hot dogs being served back then. Back to the senior class. Alice Burgess, or “Burgy,” was another active student. Class president in 1919, was class treasurer the next year, secretary of the Portia Club in 1920-21, secretary of the Glee Club in 1921, editor-in-chief of the Anchora and a member of the school play. Alice also found time to be nicely coifed for her senior photograph, with a wavy hairstyle and tasteful necklace.

Where there’s a will... Members of the Class of ‘22 realized that the time was near when it

was to be “torn asunder and wishing to avoid all argument and obliterate all opportunities for dispute over our various possessions and treasures,” decided to publish its last will and testament.

Bequeathed items Here are a few bequeathed items: • Kenneth McCowan willed and bequeathed his football pants to Bobbie Bullen providing they fit. • Russell Brown gave all his “old girls” to Russell Hulse. He didn’t provide any details. • Future cross dresser? Lennagene Hazelton willed her hair ribbons to Fred Brown for neckties. • “Slim” Dean willed his surplus height to the appropriately named Ronald Smalley. • Phillips Cady passed on his right to be “an old

Saving history for future generations Representatives of the Dart Foundation present a $1,000 check to the Mason Area Historical Society’s Capital Improvement Fund, which is established for future major replacements, repairs and improvements. This is part of the society’s long-range plan to preserve Mason’s history. Lorraine Simone and Shirley Beckman accept the check for the society from Supriya and Deborah Ide. Pictured are, from left: Simone, Beckman, Supriya and Ide.

OLIVET — Olivet College senior Ethan Felsing of Mason has earned Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Week honors in men’s soccer. Felsing had two outstanding games in goal for the Comets as they defeated Alma College, 3-1, Sept. 28. The team also played to a 0-0 tie at Calvin College on Oct. 2. Against Alma, Felsing contributed seven saves and assisted on a goal with a long punt down field. Against Calvin, Felsing collected outstanding eight saves, including several stops on breakaways from the attacking Alma offense For the season, Felsing has delivered six shutouts with a 0.73 goals against average and has made 49 saves for the Olvet soccer team.

bachelor” to Lourice Curtis. I hope she was understanding about this possible heartbreak.

Anchora advertising Local businesses were well represented in the 1922 yearbook. One was Pearson Studio of Mason. In big letters were the words “Mostly All,” followed by “of the cuts seen in this Anchora were made from photos taken at the” — and more big words “Pearson Studio.”

Appointments could be made by phone or studio. I appreciate the truth in advertising here. Note Pearson didn’t claim it did “all” the cuts, just “most of them.” I wonder if they coifed the well-groomed Alice Burgess. More 1922 Anchora news later. Christie Bleck is editor of the Ingham County Community News. She wonders what the folks at Pearson would have done with her thick mop of hair.
