Fund for long-term care By CHRISTIE BLECK

MASON — The Mason Area Historical Museum Board of Directors is thinking long-term when it comes to major improvements to

the museum and the historic Pink School. The museum board is raising capital funds to enable future developments for the buildings. The museum, located at 200 E. Oak St., and the

school, located at 704 W. Ash St., are in good repair, but as with any building, will need major work at some point. “They’re both solid right now,” said Mary Hagen, CapSee Fund/page 13

LESLIE — Safety, student welfare and salary requirements were factors mentioned in a Dec. 1 community forum held at Woodworth Elementary School about the search for a new superintendent/curriculum director for Leslie Public Schools. Susan Friend, a former principal in the Grand Ledge and Waverly school districts, currently is interim superintendent. She succeeded Corey Netzley, who accepted a superintendent position with Hemlock Public Schools. “It is a big job for anyone to fill, no matter who that individual is,” said Tim Carroll, Leslie school board president. Vice President Mary Crowl said most superintendents have curriculum experience. “There’s a big movement to combine those two (positions),” trustee John Wayne Stewart said. Crowl said that William DeFrance, superintendent at Eaton Rapids Public Schools, had expressed interest about combining the superintendent jobs from both districts. “They’re looking at a possible sharing of services,”

Crowl said. “It doesn’t necessarily have to mean superintendent.” Crowl said the Eaton Rapids district had approached Leslie four years ago with a similar idea, but it was believed then that Leslie wouldn’t be on an equal footing. Treasurer Eric Isham suggested the board needs to look at the current situation and quickly enter into discussions. “We would be really interested in at least talking about it,” DeFrance said in a Dec. 2 telephone interview. DeFrance said the idea is to save money with a “management services concept” in which central office functions would serve both districts. At last count, the Eaton Rapids district had 2,776 students. Leslie’s total was 1,375. City Manager Brian Reed, who moderated the forum, said a strong school district will help the city. “I believe we really have

to have a synergy working together,” Reed said. The job is posted, although no salary is mentioned. However, the figure of $85,000 was discussed by the board, with trustee Michael Knauf warning that the new superintendent could use the position as a “stepping tone” if the salary is too low. Residents who attended the forum also expressed a desire for the new superintendent to maintain a “local atmosphere” by attending school events. “I would like the focus to stay within the community,” Pam Kunkel-Chappell said. The application deadline for the Leslie position is Jan. 7, 2011, with initial interviews slated to begin later that month. The proposed start date is April 1, 2011 or as agreed upon by the board and new superintendent, but not later than July 1.

Ingham County Community News


Mason police report Between Nov. 23- 29, Mason police investigated 52 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.

Situation suspicious

Nov. 23: A suspicious situation report was taken from a complainant who reported chatting with a man who sent her pictures of himself. When statements he made didn’t add up, the complainant became suspicious about the man and searched him out on Facebook. She found an account with the same last name and pictures sent to her, but that person denied knowing the suspect. The complainant has since terminated the relationship.

Not a bumper car

Nov. 23: An officer was called to investigate a hitand-run accident where a witness observed the suspect vehicle back from a parking stall in a private lot and strike another legally parked car, striking it so hard, it moved the parked car. The witness identified the suspect, who was then called. The suspect — contacted by phone — said he did not hit the car that hard and could not understand why it was not all right to drive away after striking and causing damage to another vehicle. He will receive his ticket for leaving the scene of an accident by certified mail.

December 5, 2010

Assist, not arrest

Nov. 23: An Onondaga man came to the police station to report items stolen from his car — when and where, he did not know. He alleged that he was arrested in Mason and a friend took custody of his car. During the multiple days the friend had the car, some items

where removed. The friend and others claimed to know nothing about it. The report was created as a citizen assist for the benefit of the complainant, and closed because no crime, if any, was shown to have occurred in Mason.

Tires slashed

Nov. 24: An officer received a report of malicious destruction of property in the 400 block of Coppersmith where two tires were cut and flattened on the victim’s vehicle. While investigating this, the officer discovered a second crime involving slashed tires to a vehicle parked in the 300 block of Coppersmith. The crimes remain under investigation.

Bad holiday spirit

Nov. 24: Another malicious destruction of property was reported after vandals destroyed Christmas decorations at a residence on North Jefferson Street. The victim reported the vandals struck over night.

Pile is vile

Scales of justice

Nov. 24: An officer patrolling near Elm and Park during dark-time hours came across a cyclist on an unlighted bicycle, riding against traffic. The officer recognized the suspect as a probationer and made contact. Investigation found the rider to be in possession of marijuana scales disguised as a cell phone and a marijuana grinder. The suspect, who was on probation for the breaking and entering of a Cedar Street business, claimed multiple legitimate uses for his paraphernalia, but the skeptical officer pointed out the distinctive aroma and debris left by marijuana. The suspect was released without his implements and with a citation for possession of drug paraphernalia. His probation officer will be notified.

At the conclusion of the interviews, the officers were satisfied by the parent’s assurance that no real threat of violence existed and she had matters under control. However, the caller has a history of offenses and is currently on probation, so his probation officer has been notified.

into her cart and was distracted with shopping when she noticed a white male, wearing a dark hoodie with the hood up over his head, near her cart. A short time later, she noticed her wallet was missing from her purse. She also reported having a brief conversation with the suspect, whom she described as having a large neck, which was tattooed, and having tiny squares tattooed underneath his eyes. Later in the evening, the wallet — minus cash — was discovered stuffed into a toilet tank by cleaning staff at a nearby restaurant. The investigation will continue.

Classic clues

Nov. 27: An officer driving northbound on Jefferson witnessed a southbound vehicle cross the center line into the officer’s path of travel. It straightened out and continued past, with the officer U-turning and following. The officer noted the car kept straddling the center line as it continued on. The vehicle would not yield when the emergency lights on the patrol car were activated, but did pull over after the siren was activated. Contact with the driver found him to display all the signs of alcohol impairment, including providing the wrong paper work and pointing south when asked if he knew why he was being stopped. After failing his sobriety tests and producing a .22 percent breath-alcohol level, the driver was arrested and taken to the Ingham County Jail, where he was lodged. The car was left legally parked.

Letters to the editor Now that the dust has settled and Mason has a new City Hall completed, let us hope the powers that be can consider a much needed project: a new library for the county seat. Our current library facility is so crowded, crumbling and not handicap-accessible for the most part. Many of the smaller cities around Mason have a modern, up-to-date library. It really is overdue to consider a library project for Mason. This project would enhance and greatly benefit our community in many ways. Dolores Cook Mason

Dinner a success

A very sincere thank you to all who helped with the 22nd Community Thanksgiving Dinner at the First Methodist Church of Mason — those who served, carved, greeted, prayed, cleaned up, and donated turkeys, side dishes and desserts. Also, thanks go to those who came and enjoyed the fellowship. A big thank you to Gerry Van Douser for coordinating; the Presbyterian pie ladies; who donated 20 yummy pies; Dart, which donated paper products; John, who washed all the dishes; and all those unnamed who donated or otherwise helped put on a wonderful event. We hope to see you all next year! Have a blessed holiday season. Elaine Ferris and Gerry Van Douser Kiwanis Club of Mason

Community thanked

On behalf of the Williamston football program, I thank the people of Williamston for their incredible support of our football team this season. I think back to the crowds that we had at LCC, Goodrich, Marine City and Detroit Catholic Central. Thanks for investing in the young men on our team with your enthusiastic school and community spirit. I love that we have remained a tight-knit community that cares and supports each other. Thanks also for the overwhelming attendance and support at Ford Field. I was told it was like a homecoming with all the generations of Hornet supporters coming together. Thanks again for investing in the lives of young men. We had a tremendous ride — together! Coach Steve Kersten Williamston High School

Mason band participates in education event EAST LANSING — Regional leaders representing business, education, government and media came together recently at the Kellogg Center to celebrate the importance of a strong educated workforce. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is a key education component for students. The evening kicked off with a performance by the Mason High School Jazz Band, directed by Beth Bousfield. David Hollister, president and CEO of the Prima Civitas Foundation, spoke about the region’s assets and the importance of education. He commented about many of the areas cherished historical landmark companies, such as General Motors to creative innovation centers like Impression 5 and the Information Technology Empowerment Center (ITEC). “We need young, talented minds who want to stay here in mid-Michigan,” Hollister said. “We have a lot of career opportunities and we have growing organizations that need educated and qualified candidates.” Zach Constan, outreach coordinator of Michigan State

University’s National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL), spoke about the importance of a STEM education to facilities such as the NSCL and Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). “You don’t have to be a nuclear scientist to work here, but you do need a STEM education,” Constan said. Stanley S. Kogut, Jr. Ingham Intermediate School District superintendent, shared information about The Middle College at Lansing Community College that will open next fall for students interested in a STEM education.

Animal Shelter


In November, Leslie Middle School decided to help out the Ingham County Animal Shelter. Student Council members collected empty shoe boxes and empty dog food bags. Seventh-grader Brendon Brown, a Student Council member, said, “I think it’s good because the Ingham County Animal Shelter probably doesn’t have all the stuff they need.” On Nov. 17, Mrs. Franz announced that due to the overwhelming amount of shoe boxes, Student Council would no longer collect them. Also, it was announced that they would keep collecting empty dog food bags until the end of November. Mrs. Thompson, one of

takes three steps to decide if the roads are suitable for buses to travel. Troy James, director of operations, travels the roads at about 5 a.m. to determine whether the roads are safe for the buses to start their route. Friend checks with the National Weather Service to see what is predicted for later in the day. She also contacts the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office to get traffic and accident reports to see what the roads are like in Ingham County. “If the roads are not safe for our students, but the weather will improve and the roads will clear, we can call for a two-hour delay. If we believe that the conditions will not improve in a timely manner, then I make the decision to cancel school,” Friend said.

Leslie Middle School has a program called P.A.L.s, which stands for Peer Assistance and Leadership. A P.A.L. has to be honest, loyal, friendly, kind, cheerful and responsible. Students that are P.A.L.s have an obligation to leave class to help other students and attend meetings. To become a P.A.L., interested students must turn in a statement on why they want to be a P.A.L. and why they think that they would be a good P.A.L. Prospective students then have an interview with Christopher Donoghue, the

school’s counselor, who decides if they are eligible. Seventh-graders AnnJel Moore, Emma Steckelberg and Gracie Carroll said, “We wanted to be a P.A.L. because we love to help people.” The following students participate as P.A.L.s in the program: Eighth-grade P.A.L.s: Joseph Jackson, Taylor Ostrander, Josie Burlison, Sheyanne Smith, Kelsea Wulff, Chelsea Mays and Alyssa Droscha.

ital Improvement Fund chairperson. “But how long can you count on that?” Hagen said that the roofs, for example, on the museum and school are good for another 10 years, plus the heating units are working well. However, major work eventually will be needed on the historic buildings. The museum, formerly the John and Emily Rayner townhouse, was built in 1868. The Pink School was built in 1854. Dues, sale items and events raise more than $13,000 annually, which covers bills and minor repairs to both buildings. Hagen said the Capital Improvement Fund is restricted to funding larger projects.

To donate to the Capital Improvement Fund for the Mason Area Historical Museum and the Pink School, send checks payable to the Mason Area Historical Society to P.O. Box 44, Mason, MI 48854.

“It’s not something that’s going to be spent on little-bitty things,” Hagen said. Foundation grants, bequests and major gifts are sought. The fund stands at $3,025 now, according to Hagen, who mentioned that the Mason State Bank Centennial Fund and the Dart Foundation already have donated $2,000 and $1,000, respectively.

Area Historical Society (MAHS). She said that after she retired from teaching in 2004, she was asked to be the docent at the Pink School whenever elementary school groups, area Scout troops or interested adults wanted to spend some time in an authentic one-room country school. Doolittle said, “Since then, I’ve been amazed at how delighted the children, especially, are to discover how their counterparts learned and played at the Pink School from 1854 to 1956. “As the class members get ready to leave, we always reflect on how fortunate we in the Mason area are to have the Pink School, and I remind them that it’s their job as young historians to tell others about the Pink School’s history so it won’t become lost.” Hagen said contributions to the MAHS may be sent to P.O.

Leslie spot a nice place to spend eternity I’m not sure what lies in the Great Beyond. It could be the stereotypical vision of fluffy white clouds, harp-playing cherubs and St. Peter giving you the once-over before you’re let in past the pearly gates. It could be going back to the most pleasant time of your life and staying there for good. (For me, that would be braiding lanyards in my formative years in the city recreation program at the neighborhood school.) Or it could be just a big blank spot. I hope it’s not the dreaded No. 3. I’d much rather spend Christie’s eternity in the idyllic landchronicles scape shown in a vintage postcard, date unknown, of Christie Leslie that I acquired on Bleck eBay. I’m not sure where this scene is in town, or of there really is such a spot, but the thought of walking in sandals (I’m not a barefoot person) among leaves of carrying colors, blooming ground flowers and a gently flowing stream is very appealing. Biologically, it doesn’t seem that this scene is plausible. I don’t know of too many spring-blooming flowers growing next to trees with autumn colors. Perhaps this is an amalgamation of flora and fauna to delight the visual senses. If so, it works. If the stream contains brook trout — bonus! Speaking of favorite times of yesteryear, one of my top pastimes in my often-misspent youth was playing board games. Along with other 1960s toys such as Silly Putty, the

original Creepy Crawlers set — and the original Easy-Bake Oven, the original Super Ball and the original Kiddle Kolognes — board games kept me occupied for many an “inside day.” It seems that in about every other column I tend to out myself and give away my advancing age. (I also can show you the AARP and Scooter solicitations I’m already receiving in the mail.) Recalling these toys of the later Baby Boomers is further proof I’m past the half-century mark. But so what? Our toys of yesteryear didn’t come with instruction manuals the size of a Dostoevsky novel, nor did they require an advanced computer set-up with enough cords to choke a moose, or at least get tangled in its antlers. Interpreting an instruction manual usually meant figuring out to handle an embarrassing bankruptcy in Monopoly and what happens when you land on the “Free Parking” space. (Officially, nothing. We used to put all the money players owed by picking up certain unfortunate Chance or Community Chest cards on this space, but official rules dictate this shouldn’t be the case. Bummer. It’s almost as exciting as landing on the “Just Visiting” jail space, and in fact, even less so in real life. At least you’d be getting intimate inmate details in the latter, whereas in the former all you’d just do is put coins in the meter. However, bend the rules as you wish.) Either way, it was an easier time. Whenever I get the chance, I scrounge up a game of Monopoly with my nephew Joe and my dad. (I admit it’s hard to corral my peers into such a leisurely pursuit.)

This is an idyllic Leslie. For all I know, it could be an artist’s rendition of the Garden of Eden. Why my fixation with retro toys, board games and whimsical postcards? It’s a fairly easy way to reconnect with my (relatively) carefree past, therefore making my current care-full days more tolerable. Now if I could just find that Leslie scene, I’d sit under that orange tree amidst the multi-colored flowers, braid a lanyard and drop a line into the stream. There are much worse ways to pass time in the afterlife.

Thanksgiving has passed, and with Christmas fast approaching, it’s time to consider practical gifts for the outdoors person. On the ice-fishing scene, Stopper Lures has what I need for a more productive season on the ice. The new Whip’r Rod Ice Combo features a super-sensitive tip to detect the lightest of strikes. It comes matched and balanced with a smooth openface reel. It makes for a perfect set-up when fishing deeper than 10 feet. The rod combos come in four lengths. I like the longer rods best but a short rod works great in a small shanty. Not owning a portable shanty, this is not a problem for me. I use a lot of tear drops. This summer we tried the new Skandia Tungsten weight ice jigs with the ultra-sharp hook. Tungsten is heavier than lead so you can use a smaller profile jig. They are balanced perfect for jigging and have proven effective all summer. Hopefully a few more jigs will be found in my Christmas stocking. A quick way to cure winter blues is thinking about spring. A fly rod at ice-out is a great cure, and the Hot Tip Spiders are deadly. The floating spider has white legs painted fluorescent orange on the tips. Once again Stopper Lures comes to the rescue.

Thermacell has proven itself over the years. I carry my small unit in a belt holster when turkey hunting, archery hunting, camping and while sitting along a bank working over a few suckers. They now have a lantern model for sitting around the campfire, the fish-cleaning station or when eveningfishing along the bank of your favorite stream. Wolverine has a dandy pair of hikers that’s waterproof and lightweight. They come insulated or non-insulated. Winter activities give the nod to the insulated models and during the warmer seasons the non-insulated get the nod. I have the insulated pair, and, boy are they nice while working in the wood shop. What I really need is another pair of New Balance 955 walking shoes. These are the most comfortable shoes I’ve worn and they are perfect on the walking trail, the mall or anytime that I’m not wearing a hiking boot. I also want a pair of Wrangler Jeans. When fishing and hiking I like the angler series with the pockets for a pliers and such. The rugged wear jeans fit great for allaround use, and the wran-

Mason loses season opener


throws. Bulldog head coach Scott Shattuck, in his first game back in charge of the program after coaching the Mason girls from 1989-1999, said that his team’s performance at the charity stripe was the main culprit in the defeat. “That was the difference in the game, I thought,” Shattuck said. “When you reduce it down to the least common denominator, it was the free throws that killed us.”

CORUNNA -- Mason’s 2010-11 girls basketball season began with a tough 37-32 loss at Corunna on Nov. 30. Despite trailing for most of the game, the Bulldogs mounted a fourth-quarter rally and took a slim lead into the final two minutes of play. The game was tied with 44 seconds remaining, when a Coruuna three-pointer and two late free throws gave Always close them the five-point win.

no more than seven points in the entire contest. Mason traled by just one point, 7-6 at the end of the first quarter, and would have trailed by just that single point at the end of the second but for four consecutive missed free throws in the final 1:08 of the half, which ended with Corunna holding a 13-8 edge. Brooke Dippel keyed a 6-0 Bulldog run early in the third quarter with two quick buckets on two straight trips, and Angie Cena’s 15-footer cut the deficit to 15-14 with 5:41 left in the quarter. But the Cavaliers responded with a 6-0 run of their own, taking their biggest lead of the game, 21-14 with 4:40 left in the third, and held a 25-19 edge going into the fourth. Cena scored the first four points of the fourth, which began a run that eventually gave the Bulldogs the lead, when Christy Eifert drained a jumper from the free-throw line, ironically enough, that gave Mason a 28-27 advantage with 2:47 left. That lead lasted seven seconds, as Corunna’s Georgia Gregoricka hit a jumper from just inside the threepoint arc. Two Bentz free throws gave the Bulldogs the lead back, but Gregoricka then hit two threes in the span of 40 seconds to give her team the lead that they would not relinquish. Mason’s last chance to get back in the contest came with 17 seconds left, when they sent Corunna freshman Lauren Ruess to the line for a one-and-one. Ruess obligingly missed the front end, but the Bulldogs failed to get the rebound, and two late Cavalier free throws made the final score 37-32. Shattuck said that, despite the loss, there were positives to take from the game.“They never quit,” he said. “I hope that’s a charac-
