City blight begone By CHRISTIE BLECK

State, federal money used to upgrade area homes


MASON — Ingham County Housing Commission Executive Director Bruce Johnston said “curb appeal” is one feature that two rehabilitated homes bring to the city. Homes at 732 S. Columbia and 120 S. Barnes were shown to the public at an Oct. 12 open house. The homes were the first two high-quality, energy-efficient houses completed with grant money from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) funding using Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funding. The NSP provides targeted assistance to local and state governments to acquire and redevelop foreclosed properties that might otherwise be blight in their communities. Rehabilitation costs for both Columbia and Barnes properties, Johnston said, were about $200,000.

A white enclosed porch (above) adds to the appeal of the newly renovated home at 120 S. Barnes. The city also unveiled another energy-efficient home at 732 W. Columbia. The homes were improved through federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program funding. Electrical, plumbing and other improvements such as siding and roofing were made, plus both houses are equipped with 5-Star energyefficient appliances, according to Johnston. “There really isn’t anything left to do,” he said.


“This house is real fine for a family,” City Administrator Marty Colburn said of the Columbia home. That home comes with what Colburn and Johnston noted was a “mother-in-law or grandmother suite” because a bedroom, a handi-

capped-accessible bathroom and kitchen adjoin each other. Mark Thompson, building commissioner of the Ingham County Housing Commission, was on hand See

INGHAM COUNTY — For years, officials in rural areas of the county fought to preserve their only source of regular police protection — the road patrol division of the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office. With the fight all but lost, they decided to form their own police collective in an unprecedented show of regional cooperation. “The county has cut us off, so this is the best option we thought we could put forward,” said Williamstown Township Supervisor Mickey Martin. “We have these meetings, and every one of the 13 supervisors will show up. It’s been phenomenal.” How it all works will be determined in the Nov. 2 elections, when voters in the 13 rural townships decide if they are willing to pay for police protection. Voters in all but two of the townships will be asked if they want to ap-

The issue Voters in 13 rural townships will decide next month if they want to pay for police protection through special assessments. The townships are Alaiedon, Aurelius, Bunker Hill, Ingham, Leroy, Leslie, Locke, Onondaga, Stockbridge, Vevay, Wheatfield, White Oak and Williamstown.

prove special assessments that would cost homeowners a flat rate of up to $150 a year and business owners up to $250 a year. In Alaiedon and Wheatfield townships, the assessments would be based on a millage rate of 1 and 1.56 mills, respectively. If all of them pass, the assessments would generate about $2 million a year for police services. The townships would form a police board to administer the money. “The plan is to have 18 officers available,” said See Patrols/page 8

Patrols: Out-county residents to decide road issue Continued from page 1

county Commissioner Randy Schafer, R-Williamston, who is openly supporting the ballot issue. “The best option is for these 13 townships to stick together. We’d get better services.”

Options The police board could decide to contract with the sheriff’s department or one or more local police departments or form its own police department. “We would do whatever is going to be the most cost-effective,” Martin said. “We’re hoping we won’t need to levy the whole amount every year.” Urban and rural factions spent years battling over the sheriff’s road patrol before the issue was finally decided this year. The county Board of Commissioners has steadily cut funding for the sheriff’s department and ultimately decided to eliminate the road patrol on Jan. 1. That will leave much of the out-county area with no one to respond to all but the most serious of incidents, local officials said. In emergencies, the state police, county sheriff or other police agencies will respond as they are able. But response time is a serious concern, local officials said. Counties are required to provide 911 service, said county Commissioner Laura Davis, a Democrat who represents Aurelius Township and part of Delhi Township. “How quick that response is, that’s where the discrepancy is,” Davis said. “You’re asking someone to show up from who-knows-where.” Leslie Township Supervisor Dallas Henney said he and the other township supervisors are trying to educate voters about the issue and don’t want to scare them. “If there’s a life-or-death situation, they would have to

help out if they can,” he said. (But) it’s going to be a very precarious situation. You just hate the thought that something happens and there’s nobody there to respond.” Henney said he knows that some individuals don’t believe that townships should fund this. “They think the county should do it, But the choice comes down to whether or not they want to have police coverage come Jan. 1,” Henney said. It’s not unusual for two or three local governments to band together for things like police and fire protection. But in scope, the rural police board idea in Ingham County is probably unique, said Jim Beelen, a spokesman for the Michigan Townships Association. “A special assessment is a wise choice because the information gets out the same to all of the units,” he said. “I think it’s wonderful that so many units can get together and approach it this way.” Martin said she and Henney began organizing meetings of township supervisors after it became clear they would lose road patrol service. “We felt a responsibility to at least get something together,” she said. “Individually, townships could do it. But it’s cost-prohibitive for townships to go it alone. It’s just way too expensive.”

Issue still unclear Many questions can’t be answered until after the election, officials said. Because each township is voting separately, some might approve the assessment and some might not, leaving holes in out-county police coverage. Townships that defeat the ballot proposal would be on their own. “We will work with what we have,” Martin said. Whatever happens on election day, the supervisors will

have just two months to form a police board and get the ball rolling. “We’re going to be meeting constantly,” Martin said. “We already have two meetings set up in November. We’re working very hard to get everything scheduled and in place so we can take off.” The supervisors have contacted the sheriff’s department and the police departments in Mason, Leslie, Williamston and Meridian Township about contracting for police services, Martin said. All of them have expressed some interest in the idea, she said. The new police board could decide to contract with a single agency to cover everyone or divide the area into sections and contract with several different agencies. “We’re just going to look at all the options and pick the one that makes the most sense,” Henney said. “We’re going to keep a real open mind.” Township supervisors say they’ve taken no official stance on the ballot proposals. They’ve held town-hall meetings and sent out newsletters explaining the issue. There is no election committee promoting the proposal and no organized opposition at the township level, officials said Schafer said he’s attended a number of town hall meetings and believes the ballot proposals will be successful. “It not a popular thing to talk about ballot issues or taxes, but I just go around to every group and say I’ll support it,” he said. Davis, who also fought to save the sheriff’s road patrol, said out-county residents will get much better service than they are used to if the ballot proposals pass because service levels had been cut so far. “I believe people value it enough to vote yes,” she said. “I think people want to have safe neighborhoods. People understand if they have a certain level of public safety, the economy can grow. It’s an economic investment.”

A big thank you to the Mason Girl Scouts who took on the challenge of setting up and taking down all the signs and barricades for the Mason Farmer’s Market, and ran a fundraising booth for their 2012 trip to New York. It was a great success as lots of goodies were baked each week and many marketgoers appreciated an enormous variety of baked goods and crafts. This effort by girls and parents was appreciated every week. (OK: Who did make that great seven-layer bar cookie?) A big thank you to parents and girls alike, who hauled, setup, and baked their way to a great season — and have promised to do it again next year: MJ and Traci Phillips; Traci and Caitlin Bergeon; Gina and Rachel Dumont and Sierra Young; Cindy, Joe, Racheland and Hannah Hyaduck; Sarah and Makayla Rickets; Maribeth, Carrie & Katie Harger; Gwen and Shelly Bagley; Michele and Jessamy Burton, Monica and Jane Bush; Mary & Alex Croff; Forest and Madison Hill; Pam and Janae Miller; Gail and Leaha Sinnaeve; Kathy and Amber Sodman; Suzie and Shelby Wiborn; Sava Treloar; Teresa and Marlee Rapp; and Luana and Chelsey King. If you missed anything, feel free to contact MJ Phillips of Mason for their cookbook. It’s only $10 and has most of the recipes from the booth!

fighting to end free lifetime health care benefits for lawmakers. She also has voted to have her pay slashed by 10 percent. See Barb’s record for yourself, and you’ll know why the special interests have a reason to be afraid of her. Lavonne Pullum Holt I know that State Rep. Barb Byrum has what it takes to fight for education and the future while cutting wasteful spending out of our budget. Barb is masterful at finding ways to slash government waste, and she doesn’t believe our children should bear the burden of irresponsible government spending. Instead, Barb has voted to hold lawmakers responsible by cutting their pay and lifetime health care benefits. Rachel Beecroft Mason

Oesterle endorsed Candie Oesterle is my endorsement for Vevay Township clerk. I know firsthand that she is a person of diligence, integrity and very skilled in public relations. As a former Vevay Township deputy clerk, I witnessed Candie’s expertise and work ethic as she served as deputy treasurer. Candie always has a ready smile, a listening ear and the ability to deal with concerns in a timely fashion. Also, please note this little known fact that a person can vote a straight ticket and still vote for Candie as an independent. Janice Wheeler Mason I hope to clarify a couple of points regarding the election of clerk for Vevay Township. When Susan Kosier vacated the office, her deputy clerk was appointed to conduct the primary and the general elections that would be held during the rest of Susan’s term. Shaun Sherwood, the township treasurer, and Candie Oesterle, the deputy treasurer, have handled the other duties of that position. Conducting elections is an important aspect of the clerk’s job,

but there is more to it. The second point I want to clarify is that it doesn’t take a great deal of special knowledge to handle the job of township clerk. Candie Oesterle has worked for Vevay Township for 10 years altogether, and during that time, has helped in several capacities, including running elections. Whatever the clerk does that Candie doesn’t already know, she could easily learn. She would do the job as she has done everything else in the township office — competently and graciously. Yes, Candie Oesterle is a very good friend of mine. She’s also a very good friend of Vevay Township. Annette Haines Vevay Township As a lifelong resident of Vevay Township, I have pledged my vote for Candie Oesterle for Vevay Township Clerk. Having worked at the town hall office for 10 years and living in the township for nearly 38 years, Candie has the skill and experience to do this job and do it very well. Candie is very adept at working with people which is a huge part of township government. Please consider Candie Oesterle as our new clerk. Mary Stid Vevay Township

Kean endorsed On Nov. 2, Vevay Township voters will elect a clerk to fill the remainder of my term that will expire on Nov. 20, 2012. The two candidates are both popular, committed, honest people, so the choice for many may be difficult. For me, while choosing the best qualified candidate is not difficult. It is difficult to choose one over the other, as I have affection and respect for both of them. Because of some ongoing health issues, I felt I could not finish my term and retired on June 1 and as the township board could not agree on the appointment of a new clerk, the law gave the responsibility for nominating candidates to the executive committees of the county political parties. Both candidates requested the Republican nomination. Since most of the committee members did not know either candidate, their choice had to be based on overall qualifications and experience. The Republicans overwhelmingly se-

lected JoAnne Kean. When the Democratic Party chose not to submit a nominee, JoAnne’s opponent, Candie Oesterle, then opted to appear on the ballot under “no party affiliation.” Township clerks and treasurers are required by state statute to have deputies, so an additional burden on those officials is to have a well-trained, knowledgeable deputy who can assume the duties of the office in the event that the official cannot. JoAnne served as my deputy clerk from 2007 until June 1 and has acquired the necessary knowledge and skills to do just that. Having been employed by the township prior to 2008, JoAnne welcomed and embraced both the current township treasurer Shaun Sherwood and office secretary/deputy treasurer Candie Oesterle when they joined the office at that time. Other than myself, JoAnne Kean is the only actual accredited elections administrator in the jurisdiction and as such, and was appointed by the township board to conduct this year’s primary and general elections. JoAnne’s experience, education and training in the many technical and legal responsibilities and duties assigned to the clerk’s office make her most qualified to assume the clerk’s position. She is committed, organized and meticulous in the execution of her work, has a good understanding of the issues before the township and is professional and respectful to the public. JoAnne’s candidacy is further supported by senior township board members, Supervisor Ron Weesies and trustee Dale Ruttan, as well as various members of the planning commission and zoning board of appeals with whom she has worked. JoAnne is a fair-minded, forward-thinking person of integrity who I know will always stand for local control, the balance between property rights and community concerns and make lawful, educated and equitable decisions on behalf of the citizens of Vevay Township. I was proud to have JoAnne as my deputy clerk and would be proud to have her finish my term. I hope you will join me in giving her your vote on Nov. 2. Susan Kosier Mason

I have been a resident of Vevay Township for 38 years and my children also own property and reside in the township. Community involvement is very important to me and I have been very active in many areas. What are the three most important issues facing Vevay Township and how would you address them? 1. Police protection: I feel it is vital for the township to protect its residents. I will explore any and all possibilities to see this is accomplished. 2. Zoning enforcement: If a zoning ordinance is important enough to be passed, I will encourage enforcement. If it isn’t in the best interest of the residents, I would recommend it be amended. 3. Fairness to its residents: I believe everyone should be treated with fairness and respect. I want every resident to feel they can get the assistance they need and I would encourage them to become more involved in township policies. What services do you consider vital and least eligible for cuts? I consider police and fire protection to be vital and would oppose cuts in those two areas.

Mason police report

Tree tentative Oct. 5: The code enforcement officer opened an investigation for a dead tree hazard on private property on North Rogers Street. The tree, hanging over Consumers Energy lines, might be a violation of the City’s Nuisance Trees Ordinance; Article III, Section 86, and has been referred to Consumers Energy for inspection and the city’s Parks Department for follow-up action.

Telephone tangle Oct. 5: A resident came in to document that an unidentified white truck drove southbound on Barnes Street, got hung up on the telephone line to his house and pulled it down. He was advised to contact his phone carrier and have the line repaired.

Million-dollar scam Oct. 5: An officer was dispatched to a residence for an attempted fraud complaint. The complainant stated he had received a telephone call from someone calling himself “James Cooper” and claiming to be from Leslie. Supposedly the complainant had won a Mercedes Benz and a million dollars.

Easily recognizing this as a scam, the complainant provided no money or personal information, but did say he “toyed with” the caller a little while before hanging up on him. The officer advised him to contact the Mason Police Department should he get another call.

Kipp Road larceny Oct. 5: An officer responded to a larceny report on Kipp Road. The victim stated that when he went to his vehicle, he found the front hood slightly ajar and his car battery missing. The vehicle was unlocked at the time. The complaint remains open and leads are requested from the public.

The complainant reported a resident of the facility left on her own accord with her boyfriend and had not returned. The complainant added the missing person did not pick up her child from day care, and staff members were on their way to take custody. Investigation uncovered the missing person left town with the boyfriend by taxi cab. A facility staff member made contact with the boyfriend by cell phone, but was hung up on. An endangered missing person alert has been entered into the statewide data base, and a referral filed with Child Protective Services regarding the abandonment. The investigation remains open.

Double-sided deal fails Oct. 7: A Mason business owner reported an attempted fraud by someone putting a 10-inch double-sided length of packaging tape at the end of a $5 bill, running it through a change machine in order to get the change, and then trying to pull the bill back out of the machine. In this case, the machine didn’t cooperate and retained the evidence, which was discovered by the owner in the course of business. One officer recalled seeing this stunt performed on the television show “Cops.”

In the United States we value the concept of “government by the people, for the people, and of the people.” When a township sets out to either develop or rewrite their master plan the more public input that is sought and received the better it will represent all of the residents in the township. The same thing applies to the zoning ordinance. The job of administering and enforcing the zoning ordinance falls to the Zoning Administrator. The Zoning Board of Appeals insures fairness and the due process rights of the residents of the township. This board is the “appeals court” for Zoning Administrator decisions. The final piece to this puzzle is the formation of zoning districts. The Master Plan defines the general areas and types of development foreseen in the township. The Zoning Ordinance and the Zoning Map outlines specific areas in the township for specific uses. There is another key right of the citizenry that is affected by township government. Our right to vote is administered and safeguarded by the Township Clerk who is also a member of the Township Board. The Board is the legislative body of the township and gives final approval of the Master Plan and the Zoning Ordinance. Make sure you exercise your right to vote on November 2.

MASON — The Mason school district is working on creating customized calendars for parents. Superintendent Mark Dillingham told the school board on Oct. 12 that the district wants to improve its pa-

rental communications, and special online calendars are a way to accomplish this. “This way, parents can find where and when events are happening,” Dillingham said. Bruce Barbour, executive director of curriculum, said parents eventually will be able to access dates via the Mason Public Schools’

Web site at and through Google calendars. There are advantages to both methods, according to Barbour. Using the school Web site, he said, is quick and easy, and no Google account is needed. Although the calendar

link at the top left of the school Web site is not “live” yet, Barbour said that eventually parents will be able to click on a particular school to access that calendar. Eventually Google calendars, which require a free Google account, will be made public and use weekly, monthly and yearly views.

All that’s required, Barbour noted, is Internet access, with mobile access also available. “Anyone anywhere can pull up their calendar,” he said. Changes to calendars will be made immediately and are automatic, Barbour said.

Dillingham, who pointed out that 85-90 percent of the district’s parents have web access, said more information will be available to them through the district’s newsletter “Keynotes” in early December. “I think it’s going to serve the district well,” Barbour said.

Leslie’s Harkness has entries in exposition LESLIE — Steven Harkness of Leslie has entered four head of market hogs in the swine division of the 37th Annual North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE). The NAILE is recognized as the world’s largest purebred livestock show with more than 22,000 entries and nearly $700,000 in prizes and awards. Scheduled for Nov. 6-19, the event takes place at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. Purebred farms from nearly every state and Canada bring livestock to compete in one of 10 expo divisions: dairy cattle, dairy goats, boer goats, beef cattle, quarter horses, draft horses, mules and donkeys, sheep, swine, llamas and alpacas.

The expo is also home to numerous youth events that are an important part of the livestock industry’s traditions, including: Eastern National 4-H Horse Roundup, Youth, Junior College and Senior Collegiate Dairy Judging Contest; Dairy Quiz Bowl, National Collegiate Livestock Judging Contest, National 4-H Livestock Judging Contest, Junior College Livestock Judging Contest and National 4-H Poultry & Egg Conference. Additionally, youth exhibitors enter market animals, those targeted for meat production, in the Junior Steer Show, Junior Market Swine Show or Junior Wether Show. These youth shows are sponsored by Farm Credit Services of Mid-America and are national recognized for both the quality of competition and prestige of winning. Champions

Shelter offering cat spay/neuter program MASON — The Ingham County Animal Control (ICAC) is offering spay and neuter help to cat owners who can not afford the surgery on Oct. 26- 27. According to Director of Ingham County Animal Control Jamie McAloon Lampman, “We can pay now, or pay later. And by paying later, I mean having to deal with thousands of unwanted cats that will be brought to our shelter or become abandoned.” To date, the shelter has taken in more than 1,900 unwanted cats, she said. By helping cat owners who could not afford to have

the surgery done, McAloon believes this program will prevent the death of thousands of cats that would have been euthanized. According to shelter staff, 55 to 60 percent of the staff’s workload is caring for thousands of cats and handling close to 4,000 cat complaints annually. The cost to the pet owner is $20 for a male or $25 for a female cat and a rabies and distemper vaccination is included in that cost. Due to limited space, only 80 cats can be accepted for the event. Pet owners are limited to three cats

per household and feral cats are welcome. The fee must be paid in advance of Oct. 26 to reserve an appointment. Call (517) 676-8373 and leave a message or come by the shelter at 600 Curtis St. during business hours. The Feline Fix-It program is made possible through donations to the shelter’s spay neuter fund. To donate to the Spay/Neuter Fund send a donation to ICAC Spay/Neuter Fund, 600 Curtis St., Mason, MI 48854, or go to — From Ingham County Animal Control

Mason makes title game By SCOTT YOSHONIS

MASON — The Mason boys soccer team booked a place in the CAAC Cup Group 1 championship game, and handed Lansing Catholic their first defeat of the season, with a 2-0 semifinal win on Oct. 12. Previously, the Bulldogs advanced to the semifinal with a 1-0 win over Lansing Everett on Oct. 7. Nick McNeilly scored the only goal against Everett with 11:54 left in the first half of their quarterfinal clash, off of a long free kick by goalkeeper Jacob Derby. Derby sent the kick from just inside the Viking half in front of their bench to the far side of the Everett box, where Zach Rogers blasted a volley across the face of the goal and McNeilly turned it in past helpless Viking keeper Brett Dawsey. Injuries have taken their toll on Mason’s attack, which has severely reduced its scoring from the run of play, but head coach Nick Binder was happy that his team found the back of the net anyway. “It was a set piece. Again,” Binder said. “We keep living and dying by them, fortunately living more than dying lately.” With districts coming up, Binder said that the temptation to take it easy during the Cup to rest and heal and test new players and tactics goes out the window when it comes time to play the games. “It’s easy, two days before the game, to say that we’re going to take it as a learning experience,” he said. “But our guys love to compete, in practice, on the bus and all that kind of stuff, so it’s a good win for us.”

Both No. 4 So was the semifinal over the previously unde-

feated Cougars. The two teams went into the game each ranked fourth in the state, Mason in Division 2 and Lansing Catholic in Division 3. Zach Rogers and Tim Lyons scored the Mason goals, both on rebounds, a few minutes on either side of halftime, to send the Bulldogs to the tournament final for the second consecutive year. That CAAC Cup Final was played at DeWitt on Oct. 14 after this paper went to press. The loss ended a brutal stretch for the Cougars, who defeated Okemos and DeWitt before falling short against the Bulldogs in their third tough game in the span of five days. Lansing Catholic coach Gus Flores was happy with his team’s effort in their first defeat, and only the second time they had trailed, this season. “It was inevitably going to happen,” Flores said. “We kept fighting through, so the boys can hold their heads up high. Mason is another quality team around here, and we wanted to see if we could match up with them. I think we did. We gave them a battle.” Mason opened the scoring from a long free kick from the left wing by Peter Brandenburg. Cougar goalkeeper Nick Davis saved the initial shot, but the rebound fell to Rogers, who tucked it inside the far post with exactly four minutes left in the first half. Binder said that his team’s 1-0 lead at the break was a fortunate one. “(We played) much better in the second half than in the first half,” Binder said. “We had trouble matching Lansing Catholic’s intensity in the first half, we lost a few marks in the midfield and we didn’t deserve to be winning in the first half by any stretch.” Tyler Raab started the

Rogers’s first-time shot forced a diving save from Davis, but Lyon was right there to make the score 2-0 just over three minutes after the break. The Cougars had their chances in the game, the best and last of which when Eric Watson’s free kick from outside the left side of the Mason penalty area was headed inches wide of the near post by Aaron Wilson with 11:20 left in the game. Binder said that he liked what he saw after the break. “We were much, much better in the second half,” he said. “We located, we put pressure on every touch, and I thought that was the difference.” After the Cup Final comes the start of the Divi-

sion 2 district tournament, which Mason will open at Marshall on Tuesday, Oct. 19, which may be the most valuable part of having a successful CAAC Cup tournament. “The biggest thing is that we get to play a meaningful game in preparation for a really meaningful game on Tuesday,” Binder said. “We’ve been pointing at that one for a while now.” After the district openers, the rest of the tournament will be played at Eaton Rapids. The winner of the Mason/Marshall game will play Coldwater there on Thursday, Oct. 21 for the right to face either Battle Creek Harper Creek, Battle Creek Pennfield, Charlotte or Eaton Rapids for the district title on Saturday, Oct. 23. Mason will host the Division 2 regional tournament beginning on Oct. 27.

Everyone seems to know they can count on the library when they’re looking for books by their favorite bestselling author, classics on their student reading lists or old favorites like Dr. Seuss. But the library also is chock-full of great science information for curious minds. Often the first topic to spark scientific curiosity in children is dinosaurs. There is something about huge, extinct, prehistoric animals that rouses wonder and imagination. A quick search of the Capital Area District Library (CADL) catalog brings up a variety of resources, from dinosaur encyclopedias, books of facts, stories, magazines (CADL Dansville has an issue of ZooBooks dedicated to the topic) to DVDs and CDs. One of my personal favorites is a music CD narrated and sung by Al Jarreau. Called “A T-Rex named Sue,” it’s based on the true story of the largest tyrannosaurus skeleton ever found.

Bulldog harriers on track late in season By DICK HOEKSTRA

With all but one runner returning from a team that won the 2009 Greater Lansing Cross Country Championships by more than 120 points, it appeared before the season that Division 2 state champion Ionia would easily repeat. But then came the emergence of second-ranked Mason, which lost 110-123 to Ionia in the first meeting of the season against each other at the recent Portage Invitational. “I don’t think we ran our best on Saturday,” Mason coach Charles Miller said. “So we’re happy to take another crack at them.” The boys race was to take place at Ledge Meadows Golf Course on Oct. 16, after this paper went to press. This year’s final victory margin may be similar to St. Johns’ 141-144 win over Ionia in 2008, but each team might score about 100 points less than that since both Ionia and Mason will

likely place all of their first five within the top 30 runners who receive individual medals. Both team’s top runners will also compete with East Lansing senior Robbie Glew and Perry senior Justin Krauss for first place individually. Ionia junior Connor Montgomery has run the fastest time so far this fall, 15:47 while winning the Grand Rapids Catholic Cougar-Falcon Invitational on Sept. 25. Senior Don Blight and junior Nick Wharry were each the Bulldogs’ top runner in the two meets after that. “They have no qualms about who wins, and that’s neat,” Ionia boys coach Chris Young said. “Each is distinctly different. Connor has great heart, Wharry has all of the talent in the world and is still learning how to use it, and Blight runs on pure guts.” Tanner Hinkle has replaced sophomore teammate Alex Whitmer as Mason’s top runner in most

recent meets. Hinkle’s top time of 16:13 is more than a minute faster than his 2009 best of 17:29. “He has run every day since July 2009,” Miller said. “While I wouldn’t recommend that for everybody, that work ethic has made Tanner very strong.” Junior Joe Cecil, who joined other teammates on most of Hinkle’s summer workouts, also improved from a 2009 best of 17:02 to 16:18 so far this fall. The latest Bulldog showing considerable improvement is freshman Mason VanDyke. The 2009 Greater Lansing Junior Cross Country Championship winner was Mason’s second man with a 16:26, down seven seconds from his previous best. “He seems to be coming on at the right time for us after some slight injury issues early in the year,” Miller said. Six returning Ionia runners were faster in 2009 than Mason’s top returner (Whitmer), who ran 16:52

last fall. But the Bulldogs’ vast improvement from 32nd in the 2007 Greater Lansing meet to 22nd in 2008 to ninth last year should take them to first or second on Saturday. “I knew I had a good group coming, but you never know how it’s going to come together,” Miller said. “It’s been fun watching it come to fruition. To have a chance going into this meet of winning it is exciting for them, for me and for Mason.” Determining who may take third to Ionia and Mason will likely depend on the performance of their fifth runners among Division 3 fourth-ranked Lansing Catholic, Division 2 honorable mention Haslett, CAAC Blue leaders Okemos and East Lansing, and Division 3 No. 6 Perry. Other teams aiming to crack the top 10 include Holt, Division 4 secondranked Potterville, Charlotte, Grand Ledge, Alma and Williamston.

Mason cross-country runners Jacob Hansen (1571) and Joe Cecil (1567) are in action earlier this season at the Spartan Invitational back on Sept. 17. The Bulldogs will compete in the Division 2 regionals at Jackson’s Sharp Park on Oct. 30.

LaSavallii leads Bulldogs to nonleague win By SCOTT YOSHONIS

October 17, 2010

MASON — Saylor LaVallii rushed for 248 yards and four touchdowns to lead Mason to a 45-12 rout of Muskegon Heights (3-4) in a non-league football game on Oct. 8. The win clinched automatic qualification for the MHSAA state playoffs, and gave the Bulldogs some momentum going into their biggest game of the year, the CAAC Red finale against Sexton on Oct. 15. That game, which was played after this paper went to press, gave Mason a chance to clinch a share of the league title with a win. Sean Wren and Ben Hinamanu scored the other touchdowns for the Bulldogs (6-1), in a game of two distinctly different halves. Mason scored just twice in the first half, both with the benefit of a short field. First, Eric Nelson recovered a Tiger fumble at the 50, but the Bulldogs had to settle for a 27-yard field goal by Jacob Derby that made the score 3-0. Then, Mason took over after a shanked Heights punt that gave the Bulldogs the ball on their own 43. LaVallii scored on a 33-yard run three plays later to give his team a 10-0 lead with 2:41 left in the first quarter. Muskegon Heights then also took advantage of good field position, as Deontae Hudson ran the ensuing kickoff back to the Mason 41 yard line, and Adam Ross scored from four yards out on the first play of the second quarter to cut the lead to 10-6.

Penalties and mistakes hampered both teams for the rest of the half, which saw the Tigers’ Division 1 college prospect Willie Snead drive his team down to the Mason one-yard line. A holding penalty drove them back, and Wren picked off a Snead pass in the end zone with 3:56 left in the second quarter to keep the contest 10-6 at the break. “We didn’t get into our rhythm in the first half,” VanHavel said. “Part of that was them (Muskegon Heights) playing well, but part of it was our not playing well in the first half. I told the kids at halftime to just settle in and get a good rhythm, and that’s what they did in the second half.” “We didn’t play our best football game tonight, but that’s a positive for us. It was a great victory, and you can’t look down on a victory.”

Second half better Mason began to find, or create, holes in the Heights defensive line in the second half that were not there in the first, starting with Wren, who ran 64 yards for a touchdown with 3:40 left in the third. Snead scored from 11 yards out on the Tigers’ next possession to make the score 17-12, but it was all Bulldogs from there. LaVallii broke free for a 65-yard TD on the next snap from center, and scored from six yards out on the fourth play of the fourth quarter to increase the lead to 31-12. Hinamanu broke several tackles on the way to a 48-yard

TD run on the first play of Mason’s next possession with 7:35 left in the game, and LaVallii provided an exclamation point to his, and Mason’s, evening with an 88-yard touchdown with 1:09 left. The Bulldogs have scored 44 points or more in all five of its wins this season. “It was a big win for us, but we have the biggest game of the year next week, so we have to prepare for that,” LaVallii said. “St. Johns was a really tough loss for us, so we have to get to work this week for Sexton.” That Sexton game, which gave the Bulldogs the chance to claim their third straight league title, was a mirror image of last year’s clash between the two. Mason went to Sexton having clinched a share of the 2009 title, looking to take it outright with a win, but the Big Reds made it a three-way tie with St. Johns with the upset win in overtime. This year, Sexton went into the game with at least a share in their pocket, and a Mason win would almost certainly cause a three-way tie with the Redwings at the top of the standings. This week, the Bulldogs travel to Eaton Rapids on Friday, Oct. 22 for the regular-season finale against the woeful, winless Greyhounds, winners of just four games in the last six seasons. Mason will begin its postseason with a pre-district game on Friday, Oct. 29, with the venue and opponent yet to be determined.

Inspired by wonder

When we think about our future, we see our children and the people of mid-Michigan. So when we created our vision, they inspired us to set our sights high: to be recognized as a national leader in quality and patient care. To get there, we’re making bold changes like creating mid-Michigan’s first ER designed just for children. We also partnered with LifeNet of Michigan to start the region’s first dedicated helicopter service that speeds patients to our Level I Trauma Center.

October 17, 2010

And that’s just the beginning.
