Lansing police, fire could face big cuts By KEVIN GRASHA kgrasha@lsj.com

Lansing police and fire departments face significant cuts if a proposed property tax increase is not authorized by voters, Finance Director Jerry Ambrose told City Council members March 14. Between 150 and 200 city positions — many of those police officers and firefighters — would be eliminated to help close a $20 million budget gap, Ambrose said. No final decisions have been made, Ambrose said, but officials said as many as 60 firefighters and 60 police

CITY BUDGET

The city of Lansing’s general fund budget has seen chronic deficits in recent years as spending commitments have outstripped city resources, such as property taxes and state aid. City leaders are preparing a fiscal 2012 budget that will be Lansing’s smallest since 2001. 2001 $98 million 2007 $109.8 million 2010 $117.2 million 2011 $109.4 million 2012 $98 million (projected)

Official: Rejection of tax proposal may bring 120 layoffs officers could be laid off. Other cuts include eliminating road reconstruction projects and sidewalk maintenance as well as more furlough days for non-emergency city employees. The May 3 ballot question would allow the council to raise $8.5 million. Ambrose also raised the possibility that about $7 million in state revenue sharing could be restored. Police Chief Teresa Szymanski said in a statement that the cuts would make it impossible to maintain the level of street patrols now in place. Instead of having 17 to 19 officers deployed at any one time, there would be 13 to 15, she said. Initiatives like community policing, school resource officers and the department’s motorcycle division would likely be reduced or eliminated, she said. See

BOYS BASKETBALL REGIONAL FINALS

Big Reds repeat as regional champions By SCOTT YOSHONIS | syoshonis@lsj.com

FOWLERVILLE — Sexton won a Class B regional title for the second consecutive year. And the Big Reds did it with one good half of basketball for the second straight game, a 65-51 win over Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard at Fowlerville on March 16. Tyrin Wade led the Big Reds with 17 points and Denzel Valentine added 16 for Sexton, which advances to play Dearborn Divine Child in the quarterfinals at Marshall Eastern beat on March 15. at final, 46-44 Despite his team’s slow start, Sexton Page 6 coach Carlton Valentine said that the win was a big one. “I’m happy for the guys,” Valentine said. “I’m happy for the family, the Big Red community and our guys. They’ve worked hard and they deserve it.” The Big Reds never trailed, but the Fighting Irish stayed right with them in the first half, thanks in large part to sophomore Myles Lockridge scoring 17 points in the first two quarters. Sexton opened the game on a 5-0 run and held the Irish at arm’s length for most of the half until a late Irish run closed the gap to just one, 31-30 at the break. The Big Reds took control in the third quarter, led by Wade, who scored just four of his points in the first half, but

LANSING — During January and February, severe winter weather across much of the U.S. forced hundreds of blood drives to cancel, resulting in a shortfall of more than 32,000 blood donations across the country, the lowest we have seen in a decade. A national recovery campaign in February and early March helped to boost blood donations and move supplies out of critical level status. However, the overall blood supply is still below sufficient levels to be prepared to respond to any kind of medical situation. This spring, the Red Cross urges those who are able to help refuel the blood supply to boost it back to sufficient levels. Particularly as the weather starts to warm and people become busy with spring activities, it is vital to refuel the blood supply now before spring fever hits, and accidents possibly increase. In an effort to help increase donor turnout, the Red Cross has partnered with Meijer to offer every person who comes out to donate, the chance to win free groceries ($250 value). In addition, everyone who attempts to donate in April has a chance to win a Mother’s Day Out package at participating salon and spas. To schedule an appointment to donate, call 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800733-2767) or visit www.RedCrossBlood.org for more information. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more, depending on their height) and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. Bring your Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID when you come to donate. • Lansing Blood Donation Center, 1729 E. Saginaw, 1-6:45 p.m. — From the American Red Cross

By KATHLEEN LAVEY | klavey@lsj.com The Lansing school board met in two closed sessions the night of March 15: The first to consider a legal opinion regarding Superintendent T.C. Wallace Jr.’s authority to hire and fire top administrators; the second to discuss specific issues with Wallace and his attorney. The result was a commitment by the board and Wallace to improve the way they work together. Members seek “There were no issues left on the clarification of table without some who has work plan to address them,” Walauthority over lace said after the administrators meeting. “Nothing changes in the work we have to do.” The nine-member board is looking for ways to cut costs, facing up to a $30 million deficit in its $185 million budget for the 2011-12 school year. That puts administrators as well as teachers and support staff on the potential layoff list. At the heart of the issue discussed Tuesday was a legal opinion requested by one or more board officers regarding who has the power to authorize contracts for seven key district administrators. The board members have been divided on who should exercise authority on issues such as length of contract and compensation over

the deputy superintendent, human resources director, chief academic officer, chief financial officer, chief operations officer, director of special services and director of communication. Their salaries range from $102,000 to $120,000. The board did not disclose the contents of the legal opinion. At its March 3 meeting, the board voted to suspend a policy adopted in 2007 for communicating with the superintendent. Among the 10 points in that policy: • No individual board member has the authority to direct the superintendent. • Only one school employee, the superintendent, reports to the board. Not all board members agreed with the move to request a legal opinion, however. “Some board members wanted to get a legal opinion about his contract and some other board members, including myself, wanted to get a second opinion,” said member Ken Jones. He said he believes Wallace is doing a good job. Board member Amy Hodgin said she was frustrated that previous attempts to meet with Wallace to discuss the issue were unsuccessful. Nicole Armbruster, appointed in January, said she felt the meetings took steps toward clearing the air. Board President Shirley Rodgers said, “There were things that we had to resolve, and I believe there was some direction, and Dr. Wallace is going to be providing us with some more information.”

Group confident India trip will pay off for city By MELISSA DOMSIC mdomsic@lsj.com

Lansing of���cials have returned from a $25,000 trip to India feeling confident about their efforts to convince a manufacturer to build a major plant in the city. Mayor Virg Bernero, three people from the Lansing Economic Development Corp. and two international trade consultants spent 3 ½ days in Mumbai and Pune, India. They returned March 14. The trip was funded by the LEDC, a quasi-governmental agency that receives funding from the city of Lansing, tax revenue and other sources. The money came from an unfilled position at the LEDC. The organization left the

position empty because it expected it would have to be eliminated in the next budget year. Officials would not name the company involved but said it already has a presence in the area. They expect the company will make a decision on where to expand in the next three to four months, said Bob Trezise, president and CEO of the LEDC. Bharat Forge America, owned by Pune’s Bharat Forge Ltd., makes forged engine and chassis components and other nonautomotive parts in Lansing. But a local company official has said it was not involved in the Lansing trip. Trezise said Lansing is competing with other communities, in-

cluding one whose officials are meeting in Germany with the unnamed company. “There’s a lot more work to do and they’re looking at a variety of places,” Trezise said. “But boy, did we really get more than in the door.” The city group met with company officials, toured their facilities and pitched Lansing’s assets. “Just the fact that we were able to personally meet with the CEO, formally and informally at his home for dinner, is incredible,” Bernero said. “That was why we took the extraordinary step of going all the way to India, because rarely are you going to be able to have that level of access.” Trezise said he has a vacant

property in mind for the facility, but would not say where. The plant would house nonautomotive manufacturing operations. Trezise wasn’t sure how many jobs the plant would bring, but said it would spur new suppliers and other businesses. Officials pitched some business incentives, such as property tax

abatements, but avoided promising several business tax incentives that would be eliminated under Gov. Rick Snyder’s budget proposal. Snyder in February proposed replacing the state business tax with a 6 percent corporate income tax and eliminating several business tax incentives, including those often used by Lansing to lure businesses. Bernero and Trezise were accompanied by Ken Szymusiak, LEDC director of business investment and incubation; Greg Ward, chair of the LEDC board of directors; and two representatives of Global Perspectives LLC, an international trade consulting firm with an office in Birmingham.

Family Theatre brings two single act plays to the stage LANSING — For its second play of the new year, the Mid Michigan Family Theatre will present two one-act plays, “Once Upon America” by Claire Boiko and “The Boy Who Cried ‘Bully!’” by Tom Quinn March 18 through March 27 at the theater, which is located in the Frandor Shopping Center at 440 Frandor Ave., Lansing. These two one-acts contrast quite well with one an-

other. “Once Upon America” is a historical drama and “The Boy Who Cried ‘Bully!’” is an updated version of an Aesop’s fable set in a modern playground. Here is a brief plot synopsis of the one-acts. Several young immigrants have left their homes and families behind to search for a new life by coming to America by boat in the year 1910. There is Ben Moscow-

Sexton: Second-half surge for win Valentine said Wade’s timely surge was the turning point of the game. “It was huge,” Valentine said. “He’s our leader, he’s been our leading scorer all year, and if he does well in the first half, we do well in the first half. He’s got to put two good halves together

for us.” The Big Reds’ defense also came up big in the third quarter, allowing just four points, both on tipins by Richard’s 6-foot-10 senior Darren Washington, and taking the previously red-hot Lockridge completely out of the game. Richard’s Luther Page launched a three-quartercourt heave at the third-

quarter buzzer that went in but was judged to have been taken after time had expired. Page, however, began the fourth with a three-point play that started a 7-0 Richard run, cutting Sexton’s lead to five points. That would be as close as they would get, as the Big Reds went on a 9-2 run from there to take the lead back to 12, 55-43, and

cruised to the regional title. Richard coach Pete Schoch said the key to the second half was Sexton playing at an increased tempo.

Great Start honors associate director for work in area EAST LANSING — Lucy McClintic, associate director of Head Start and early childhood programs for Capital Area Community Services in Lansing, was named the recipient of the Great Start “Fierce Heart” Award at a ceremony recently at the Kellogg Hotel and Convention Center. The annual award, established by the Early Childhood Investment Corporation (ECIC), honors an individual who works tirelessly to improve the lives of infants, toddlers and preschoolers in his

or her community and across the state. It was presented for the first time in 2009 to Rich Van Tol, director of early childhood programs for the Saginaw Intermediate School District. In a pay-it-forward twist, Van Tol was charged with selecting this year’s winner. “When I started to make a list of the people I most respect and admire, she was at the top of the list,” Van Tol said of McClintic. “When we started a new Early

Head Start program in Saginaw County, she was incredibly generous with her time. She had the program before many of us, but she was always there, not just for me, but for many others across the state in the same situation. She’s always been a positive voice for our early childhood work.” ECIC is a public/private initiative working to restructure Michigan’s investment in children from birth to five through state and local community efforts. Michigan’s 54 Great Start Collaboratives —

which serve all counties in the state — are the local infrastructure for the Great Start initiative, bringing together parent leaders and community decision-makers from diverse sectors — education, business, clergy, law enforcement etc. — to create and implement a plan to foster school readiness. McClintic is a graduate of Michigan State University. She taught in the Detroit, Portland and Capital Area schools and was education coordinator for Capital Area

Eastern loses out in final seconds

By SEAN MERRIMAN smerriman@lsj.com

CALEDONIA — Eastern showed throughout the state tournament what it can do when it plays with tenacity and that “will-to-win attitude,” coach Rod Watts talks about. The Quakers also showed how hard it is to sustain those things, especially when playing against the defending Class A state champion. Cha Cha Tucker scored a gamehigh 14 points, but Kalamazoo Central knocked Eastern out of the state playoffs for a second straight year in a 46-44 loss on March 16. “It’s tough because we came so close and it felt like one more possession, and the game was ours,” Watts said. “We had a feeling that this game might go down to the wire.” Watts was spot on with that assumption, and what a breathtaking finish it was. After trailing by no more than seven points throughout, Eastern stormed back late in the third quarter to take a two-point lead heading into the fourth. Clinging onto a one-point lead with just under 40 seconds remaining, Tucker was fouled and went to the line, where he split a pair of free

Late goaltending call is difference in 46-44 defeat throws to give Eastern a 44-42 lead. Kalamazoo Central responded by tying the game at 44 with 18 seconds remaining on a putback basket by senior TJ Buchanan. Eastern dribbled the clock down and Tucker fired a deep three-point sho that fell off the mark. The Maroon Giants secured the rebound and heaved a half-court pass to senior Daquavion McCants-Wilson who went up for a lay-up, which appeared to be blocked. But instead, both goaltending and a foul was called, giving Kalamazoo Central a two-point lead. The Quakers would have one last chance with 1 second remaining but a full- court heave was off the mark, and the celebration was on for the Giants. “It was a tough call at a tough time,” Watts said of the goaltending call. “It looked like it was a block from my point of view, but the refs have to make the best call they can make, and that was it.” Buchanan led Kalamazoo Central with 12 points, while McCants-Wilson

and Tyler Bell each added 11 points and five rebounds apiece. Kalamazoo Central held Eastern all-state senior forward LaDontae Henton to just 10 points on 4-of-15 shooting from the field.

Fire Chief Tom Cochran said in a statement that the cuts to his department would result in longer response times for fires and other emergencies. Three of the city’s eight fire stations could close. Ambrose’s cuts assume that the budget deficit will be $20 million. In an interview, Councilman Brian Jeffries said that number is likely inflated and makes

assumption such as every vacant city position being filled. Still, Jeffries said the budget situation is so dire, there may be no choice but to cut public safety. Residents, he said, should brace for a reduction in services. The city, Jeffries said, has not effectively dealt with a structural deficit for the last several years. “We haven’t made cuts that actually change the structure,” he said, adding:

“We kept putting band-aids on it, hoping next year is going to get better. I don’t think the city of Lansing can get away with that anymore.” For the last five years, public safety has been spared from significant budget cuts, Ambrose said. Since 2007, Ambrose said, police-fire department staffing has decreased less than 4 percent, compared with a 26 percent reduction for the rest of the city’s work force.

Future of Lansing ‘aerotropolis’ is unclear Airport project hinges on tax incentives Snyder wants to cut By MELISSA DOMSIC mdomsic@lsj.com

DeWITT TWP. — Local officials are in a holding pattern over plans for an “aerotropolis” at Capital Region International Airport. The economic development project hinges on tax incentives Gov. Rick Snyder wants to eliminate. Officials from DeWitt Township and the city of Lansing in January announced they were applying for a Next Michigan Development Corp., or “aerotropolis” designation, which allows municipalities to use tax incentives to attract manufacturing, distribution, technology and other businesses to the airport property. The program was created by state legislation passed in December. But last month, Snyder proposed a budget that would replace the state business tax with a 6 percent corporate income tax and eliminate several business tax incentives, including those for brownfield rede-

velopment and renaissance zones. It’s unclear how Snyder’s proposal would affect the aerotropolis project, but the main benefits of the program revolve around incentives such as brownfield redevelopment tax credits or renaissance zones, which eliminate most state and local taxes in a designated area for a certain period of time. “A blanket approach to eliminating incentive tools may have some very negative, unintended consequences,” said Lansing Finance Director Jerry Ambrose. At this point, the city and township will continue working on a 425 agreement for land, tax and services sharing. The airport is in DeWitt Township. Many tax incentive programs, such as a tax abatement on new personal property, are available in Lansing but not the township. A 425 agreement would allow those incentives in the township. “With every great idea,

there’s challenges that you have to overcome,” said Rodney Taylor, DeWitt Township manager. “This is a tough point for the state and ... we need to give the state a fair opportunity to make the adjustments they need to make.” Bob Selig, executive director of the Capital Region Airport Authority, which

A new date has not been set. the first step in applying for the Next Michigan DevelopOffiicials originally said the aerotropolis would cover the 2,000-acre ment Corp. designation. airport property and land within a mile of the airport.

Now how many have said their hearing aids make some sounds too loud, don’t work well in noise, or they can’t tell if they are really helping them hear at all? Audiologists and dispensers try to make hearing aids function the best they can to give the patient a good outcome. But there were always a lot of difficulties surrounding comfort and understanding of speech. Let’s say you have a small child, an average sized wo woman, and a very large man, all with the same hearing loss. All hearing Julie Pabst aids would be Audiologist programmed the same way, according to the hearing aid manufacturers software. But the ear canals themselves must figure into the process, as well. Without diving into too much physics, ear canal size and shape for the child would be quite small. The woman would be close to the average size ear canals and the man’s ear canals would be quite large and long. The child would receive too much power from the hearing aids, the woman’s fitting would be close, and the man’s hearing aids would seem very quiet. All hearing aid manufacturers base their science off the average ear. But no one has the average ear. Live speech mapping is the latest innovative approach to hearing aid fitting which uses natural speech to show how effective digital hearing THEIR HEARING AIDS?

aids are in helping you to hear speech. With digital speech mapping, an actual speech signal, not tones or hissing sounds, is used to test the hearing aids while inserted in the patient’s ears. This allows for the shape and size of the patient’s ear canals to be included in the fitting process, as well as using the most important signal we hear, speech. For hearing aid fittings to be successful, speech must be appropriately amplified with respect to loudness, clarity, and comfort. Soft speech should be perceived as soft, moderate speech sounds should be perceived as moderate, and loud speech sounds should not reach the patient’s discomfort level. Speech mapping helps to provide a clear “visual” sense of the hearing loss, and the benefits or perhaps the limitations that your current hearing aids offer in relation to actual speech. While wearing hearing aids, a tiny probe microphone is inserted into the ear canal while the hearing aids are running, then a stimulus (voices/ music) is used to measure the output and shows if the hearing aids are amplifying sounds appropriately. The Live Speech Map is displayed on a monitor through easily-understood graphics so that you can actually see sounds that are missing and be presented with a clear visual sense of hearing loss and aided benefits relating to actual speech. It allows you to see graphically just how the aid is performing in a live, real world environment. Once we see what sounds you’re missing, we’ll be able to tune your personal hearing aids until it restores the missing speech patterns and tones. So, not only will you hear the difference a hearing aid makes with your speech, you’ll be able to see the sounds being restored visually as well. A successful hearing aid fitting should be a dynamic, patient-centered
