Hundreds of students from Lansing-area schools celebrate rite of passage

Matthew Miller



ictoria Smith’s family let out a shout as she crossed the stage at the Lansing Center on Sunday morning. They waved. They called her name. “Look at her. Look at her,” said her grandmother, who had travelled from Missouri to be there. This was Smith’s graduation from Everett High School. The family seemed determined to cherish the moment. “It’s almost sad, because she’s going to be moving out and stuff, but it’s a happy moment, too, because she’s reached that coming of age,” said Smith’s younger sister Danesha. “She is super excited. She’s ready to get out and tear up the world.”

And she had company. In all, 641 students graduated from Lansing’s three high schools on Sunday along with hundreds of others from East Lansing, DeWitt, Waverly, Haslett and Holt high schools. At the Lansing Center, where the graduations for the Lansing schools were staggered throughout the day, thousands of family member and friends filled long rows of chairs in the massive exhibit hall. They carried cameras, bouquets of flowers, bundles of balloons. Darlene Smith, Victoria’s mother, had made a T-shirt with photos of all her five children on it. But it was Victoria’s name written across the front. “This is the most beautiful moment,” she said, “the greatest day ever.”

When Waverly Middle School landed on a list of the state’s 92 lowest-performing schools last August, teachers had two choices: “They could wallow in it, or they could rise up,” said principal Mike Moreno. Moreno said the school’s two dozen teachers drove a plan to improve the school. That plan includes a boost in tutoring time, adding 28 minutes to each school day next year and creating an optional summer academy open to all 500 students. The effort paid off: On June 6, the Michigan Department of Education announced that Waverly Middle School will get nearly $1.5 million this year to implement the plan. The money — known as a Site Improvement Grant — is renewable for two years. Waverly Middle School is among 24 schools across the state — half of them in the beleaguered Detroit school system — to earn grants to help pay for state-mandated improvement plans\uFEFF. Lansing’s Eastern High School was among the 68 schools that did not receive grants. Last August, Waverly Middle School staffers and families were surprised to find it listed among the 92 lowest-performing schools in the state. The listing perplexed many Waverly administrators, because the school had made adequate yearly progress under federal No Child Left Behind laws. Eastern High School also was required to reorganize. Its plan includes more reading and math tutoring, optional class periods at the beginning and end of each See EASTERN, Page 3

school day and a mandatory, for-credit “advisory” period. It’s designed to give teachers a chance to check on students individually and make sure they’re on track to succeed. Eastern’s plan will cost an estimated $800,000. It applied for a $500,000 grant but did not get funding. “We’re obviously disappointed that the Michigan Department of Education did not have enough funds to fulfill all the applications, including Eastern’s,” said Steve Serkaian, spokesman for the school district. “Nevertheless, it’s full steam ahead in implementing the plan.” All 92 schools that wound up on the lowest-performing list were required to make fundamental changes in the way they educate students, employing one of several models for change.

a half-dozen new staffers including math and reading coaches, as well as the extended school day and summer program. Moreno said the seventh- and eighth-graders who attend Waverly Middle School already are getting more tutoring in key areas such as math and reading. The extra 28 minutes in the school day will give teachers more time to help students along. Moreno said he’s also excited about the summer academy, which begins with a one-week session this August, expanding to two weeks next year. Students will meet for half-day sessions with free breakfast and lunch provided. Besides tutoring in the basics, it will include enrichment classes that challenge students who already have the basics down. “We’re feeding the kids who need academic help and we’re feeding the kids who are already fine and need challenges,” Moreno said.

Choices included: • The transformational model, which involves a new principal and boosting learning and teacher planning time. • The turnaround model, which includes replacing the principal and at least half the staff. • Restart, which involves closing the school down and reopening it as a charter. • Close/consolidate, which involves closing the low-achieving school and enrolling students in highachieving schools in the district. Moreno was named principal at Waverly Middle School last fall; the school also just got a new dean of students. Teacher Jeremiah Baynes was appointed to the position last month, replacing Becky McQuillan, who asked to go back to teaching. The $1.47 million will pay for classroom technology such as document cameras, which Moreno describes as “the futuristic overhead projectors of our time,” and

LCC weighs raising tuition by 3.9% Matthew Miller

Deborah Canja’s question was more than hypothetical. “What if we were to say, you know, I’m just not in favor of a tuition increase?” she asked. “What options are you going to give us to rework the budget so that there isn’t a tuition increase?“ Canja and other members of Lansing Community College’s Board of Trustees had spent the previous two hours listening to college administrators present their budget proposal for the coming year. To close a budget gap estimated at $7.4 million, the proposal called for a 3.9 percent increase in in-district tuition, taking it from $76 to $79 per billing hour. It called for layoffs, five

full-time employees and 15 part-time. It called for new student fees. Holding tuition level, said Lisa Webb Sharpe, the college’s senior vice president for finance and administration, would leave only a few options: more layoffs, more fees, reductions in the discretionary budget requests submitted by the administration. The latter group includes things such as money to keep full-time faculty positions, money to keep the college’s technology current, money for student success initiatives. Like other community colleges in the state, LCC will get 4.1 percent less from the state than it got last year, a reduction of a little more than $1 million. Its share of local property

taxes will fall by nearly $1.5 million. And that’s on top of a 17.6 percent increase in its contributions to the state employees’ retirement fund and an 8 percent jump in health insurance costs. The proposal presented Monday night included $4.9 million in cuts: $1 million from the academic programs the board voted to eliminate last month, nearly $700,000 from layoffs, along with a number of smaller measures, the elimination of vacant positions, cutting an expensive software program used for employee training and so on. Regarding the layoffs, Webb Sharpe would only say, “They’re actually from across the college and we’re not prepared to release a list until after the

board votes on it.” Which the board must do before the of the month. Canja, the board’s chair, has opposed tuition increases in the past. She said she’d oppose one this year. “I believe that times are difficult and that even though we are more affordable than the forprofit schools and we are more affordable than universities, our clientele counts on us to make education affordable and accessible and we need to stick to that,” she said. Her colleagues, however, seemed more amenable. “I couldn’t find anything in here that I thought was untoward at this point,” said Trustee Larry Meyer, referring to the proposal. “I’m certainly leaning toward it.”

A Lansing School District official says no graduating Sexton High School seniors were directly involved in a fight that occurred June 5 on Michigan Avenue, and that the fight was smaller than initially reported by police. “It did not disrupt graduation, it did not involve graduation,” said Lansing deputy superintendent Jim Davis, who was at the Lansing Center for Everett, Sexton and Eastern graduations, which were spaced throughout the day. “It did occur in that period right after graduation outside the Lansing Center.”

Outside Lansing Center

Lansing police Lt. Noel Garcia said the initial call to the fight was placed by a Lansing Township police officer who happened to drive by the incident that afternoon. Garcia said he reported an incident involving an estimated 15 people. Garcia said spectators could have been included in initial reports from

police that the fight included 30 to 50 people. “The larger number comes in when people are watching the fight or when the police get there, everybody kind of runs,” he said. Davis said he observed a scuffle through a Lansing Center window and went outside, where two Sexton staffers and others were trying to break up a dispute involving a handful of people. Sexton’s graduation began at 2 p.m. and the dispute was reported about 3:45 p.m.

Attempted to mediate

Davis said he was outside with others attempting to mediate the dispute for a few minutes before police arrived. Davis said he and other school officials believe the incident was a neighborhood dispute. Garcia said no one was arrested and no assault reports were filed. He said anyone who was involved and wants to file a criminal report or request further investigation should contact police at 483-7600.

Authority says most City Market booth space is leased Lindsay VanHulle

Anytime ~ Anything ~ Anywhere

Glenn Hills Sr. opposed the new Lansing City Market building in concept, especially its smaller blueprint and limited parking. To this day, he remains fond of the old one — opened in 1938, the year he was born — on the corner of Cedar and Shiawassee streets. But he can say now that the layout and foot traffic at the new facility, down the street, have supported his family’s longtime cheese stand. “A lot of people enter into a new building with a lot of enthusiasm, and I hope the enthusiasm continues,” Hills said. More than a year after opening, the agency that runs City Market is touting the move as a factor of increased occupancy. Lansing Entertainment & Public Facilities Authority said it has leased between 95 and 100 percent of available booth space within the past year, a change from

see,” she said of the winter success. The City Market hasn’t added vendors. Instead, it has allowed existing businesses to lease more booth space. The smallest is 80 square feet and the largest tops 800, manager Joseph Lesausky said. The owner of Aggie Mae’s Bakery, for one, recently added a deli. About 50 square feet is open, but he said another vendor is considering expansion. It’s a transition still under way, a strategic rebranding of sorts that managers and vendors alike say will take time to materialize. Assigning rigid space widths to maximize the number of vendors would serve a purpose, Lesausky said. But it wouldn’t allow businesses to maximize space to their advantage.

Riley Ngubeni, 3, smiles at mom Denise Ngubeni as she eats mango sorbet at the Lansing City Market. The market is in need of more fresh produce and meat. But until a seller interested in a yearlong commitment surfaces, Snook said, it makes sense to offer space to thriving vendors. “We still encourage the diversity, to keep that there. We don’t need 85 sandwich shops,” she said. “If we start to go over, people will let us know.” The City Market reverted to earlier hours this winter after an experi-

ment to reach people in the evening didn’t work. LEPFA targets longtime patrons and young professionals, but holds events to draw people in and build repeat visitors. The agency promotes the market differently based on the demographic, Snook said, taking more of a farmers market approach for older generations and a trendy urban one for the younger set. Therein lies the problem, said Travis Sybrowsky, a vendor and owner of The Grain Market. The City Market needs to decide what it wants to be, he said, adding that business spiked in the first few months last year but since has stabilized too low. Sybrowsky wants to know if it is designed to sustain vendors over time or nurture start-ups until they can afford their own storefronts. “I want the market to succeed,” he said. “We haven’t rebranded ourselves very well.”

Lansing Catholic mandates drug testing Policy requires students, staff to give hair samples this fall Kathleen Lavey

Lansing Catholic High School staff and students will begin mandatory drug testing this fall. “The whole idea is to prevent students from using drugs, and if they are, to get them to stop and get them the help they need,” Lansing Catholic Principal Thomas Maloney said. “Parents have told us they want a drug-free, healthy environment at Lansing Catholic.” Maloney on June 2 said the school, which has about 500 students in ninth through 12th grades, deals with about 10 violations of the drug and alcohol policy

each year. It is the first of four Catholic high schools in the 10-county Diocese of Lansing to begin such a program. All students and staff will be required to allow a hair sample to be taken in September. Samples will be sent to a California lab for a test which can detect drug use within the past 90 days. Random testing will occur throughout the school year, Maloney said. Students who test positive for drug use will be referred for counseling or for rehabilitation if necessary, then retested at a later time. School policies already prohibit staffers from using drugs. Maloney said if a staffer tests pos-

itive the manner will be handled swiftly using personnel policies already in place. John Brennan, president of the Lansing Catholic school board, said the board’s decision to go ahead with drug testing was unanimous. Brennan said he hopes kids would be able to use the policy as a tool to help them resist if they are in a situation where drugs are available. “Peer pressure is hard,” he said. “But they could say, ‘Look, I can’t do this, because we get tested.’” Danielle Crilley, 15, will be a junior this fall at Lansing Catholic. She said she supports drug testing. “I think overall it’s going to be better, because it’s going to force people to make better decisions,” she said. “I think it’s good that

our school is going to be taking precautions on this issue.” About 175 Catholic schools around the country have implemented drugtesting policies. The other Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Lansing are in Flint, Ann Arbor and Jackson. “We are seriously considering moving in this direction for all of the high schools,” said the Rev. Steve Mattson, superintendent of instruction for the diocese. Pam Campbell, superintendent of Lansing Christian School, which serves 600 kids in preschool through 12th grades, said she does not think the school will move in that direction for its 200 high school-age students. “Some Christian schools test their athletes and students that are involved in

The new test at Lansing Catholic won’t detect alcohol use, which also is prohibited among students by school policy. Maloney said the school will continue to work with students and families to discourage the use of alcohol and tobacco. The American Civil Liberties Union has challenged drug-testing efforts in Michigan high schools, including a lawsuit against Grand Blanc Public Schools, which required student athletes to undergo random drug testing. A court upheld random drug tests for athletes. Rana Emir, communi-

cations director for the Michigan Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said courts have not supported random drug testing among entire student bodies in public schools because it is a violation of privacy. She said rules can be different for private schools because families voluntarily choose to send their children there. Lansing Catholic draws students from more than 20 different middle schools and K-8 elementary schools. Its staff includes about 30 teachers. Tuition after grants and subsidies is about $5,800 per student.

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


Hearing loss is better serviced by healthcare providers with the appropriate credentials and resources.

Expertise Critical in Accurate Hearing Care




Lansing City Community News


A native of Michigan, JANETTE WARRINGTON has worked in ministry and as a correspondent for a statewide recreational newspaper. She is the author of The Humpty Dumpty Syndrome and A Caregiver’s Triumph that share her experiences with her son’s brain injury and as a caregiver. Challenged by dyslexia, Janette earned a PhD at the age of 69 and was granted second honorary degree fro her extensive work in the brain injury movement.

The Humpty Dumpty Syndrome Bill calls my inner child creativity “janooting” particularly if I failed great or small. I absentmindedly try to go “in” doors marked “out” or “out” a door marked “in”. Once after such a mishap, Bill calmly waited for me. When I reached him his only comment was, “Did you get all that straightened out?” We both laughed. Laughing at oneself is healthy. It might seem strange, but I was the perfect candidate to help David recover from a right side brain injury. David got lost, went in the wrong public bathroom, or out back doors instead of front doors at restaurants. I could go on and on but a good candidate for the job was me. The following book, The Humpty Dumpty Syndrome documentary tells David Warrington’s story with much humor and some tears.


here is a rumbling across Americans when it comes to our health care and out legislation’s reform on health care. Americans are beginning to reassess their freedom, values, and respect for life, and legislators who are using health care as a call for power. Author Janette Warrington hears our rumblings and speaks out as a concerned American, but also as a caregiver who has advocated for health-care change through her unique storytelling abilities. Irish Pumnel (pictured high school years) is my dear cousin. The following poem she wrote (published 2009-2010)

Poor me, I’m too old to have fun. I’m too old to have a productive life. Why don’t you stop feeling sorry for yourself? Between Clean Sheets although a book goes through Millions of people never got the chance for a long life. Let’s suppose you are here for a reason. many edits with corrections marked.

She is a To become the person you wanted to be. talented writer. I take full responsibility. I’m talking true quality in the individual here. Love Jan This can take time. Don’t despair. If you need to improve, and you’re still breathing, go for it. You will be a better person, It is as simple as that. Iris Pumnel


Caregiver’s Triumph covers the seventeen years we spent wintering in Florida during our “fun” years (Bill 65+ and I 55+). Our children visited each Christmas; we traveled with our children to resort areas in Florida and on Caribbean Cruises. We signed with our retirement park residence on a trip to Alaska that included Jane, David, Bill and myself. Trips to Europe also included our children. Jane is married to Dan Kowieski. They live at Interlochen, Michigan. They raise a truck garden. Jane works for Michigan Land Usage. Dan works for the city of Traverse City. Stephen Cooper is married to Bonnie; they have four children and five great grandchildren. Steve works as a physicist in Detroit, Michigan. Bonnie teaches and babysits her grandchildren. Steve Warrington is married to Linda. They are both retired educators from public schools. Steve teaches part time for Lake Superior College. They have three grandchildren, two girls and a boy. Douglas is next and he passed in 1978. David is at a dependent living center. We visit him almost daily. We have a part time caregiver come in three days a week; he is our nephew Terry Moffatt. Some of the very elderly in our park have struggles with their children’s visits. They want to take over their parents affairs before these seniors are ready. We could hear doors slam and cuss words at departure time to go back North. At the clubhouse waiting for the mail I overheard an 85 year old resident state, “well my kids are at it again”. They believe my wife is not emotionally or mentally able to take care of affairs if I am not able. This they believe extends beyond my grave. They have taken mother on an excursion, patronizing her, telling her she needs to lean on them; they know best. That may have been the case for them, but not everyone.

Left to right: (front) Jan, Bill, and Jane; (back) Linda, Douglas, David, Steven W. Stephen C.

Women of today have been in the workforce earning pensions and making investments for retirement. They’re not about to let their children tell them how to spend it. Some children and sibling’s attitudes are not appropriate for today’s more comfortable retirees. Their knowledge of finances has given seniors comfort they earned. All adults want safety and happiness. Seniors can speak up about what’s reasonable where children have discourse. The gentleman waiting for the mail continued to say, “My wife and I are not packages to be put on a shelf in some dependent living center. My now second wife is very active and we do not understand why children and other supporters are still trying to push us”. Core concern of unhappy children over their parents care could be disguised as an inheritance and entitlement issue. And, sad to say, there can be greed. If reasonable answers with much hoop jumping to resolve claimer’s issues are accepted, there still could be no resolve. The issues of their loved one’s care will come up again with a new face. I recommend seniors have a strong will or living trust set with their desires. The trust my husband and I have set up is outlined in my books, A Caregiver’s Triumph and Between Clean Sheets. Every man his own ancestor and every man is his own heir. He devises his own future and he inherits his own past (a quote from an unknown author).

June 12, 2011

My own brute strength and determination would not be enough to sustain me, and I knew that. But what would? One thing I did know for sure what that I was burned-out. Warrington offers humorous anecdotes and stories wrapped around spiritual insights picked up along the path. Her journey had taken her from experiencing intense loss and grief as a child, to becoming a burned-out caregiver, then finally to healing, a joyous triumph in spirit, and a place of rest in the Lord. Part personal journey and part instructional, this book is suited for any caregiver, whether it is meeting the needs of children, aging parents, pastors, or church leaders. It is for caregivers who are looking for hope and help along their journey, as well as those in the body of Christ who are hoping to better understanding the problems of others.

As co-activity director, one of my jobs was to maintain a normal schedule of activities and programs where seniors could reinvent themselves on a lesser scale. This too could show their beautiful fun loving inner child without raising eyebrows. I stopped at the door-slamming couple’s house. The husband asked if I saw the “freak show” in the driveway when their children left for north. I answered “no”, yet I knew from my college studies regarding seniors what controllers do to a senior’s self esteem. “Freak shows” are acted out with crying angry words, and frantic pleas. We acted out some of these issues in drama at the clubhouse events and critiqued them for better departures. We also featured speakers in estate and financial planning. The Northern visitors worry if senior’s decisions are left too long there will be less opportunities for happy living. The gentleman waiting for the mail continued, “Some of our children do not accept my wife’s resolve. I told her to stand strong for the right to make our own decisions as long as we can. If push comes to shove, I am calling the cops”. Those seniors near him laughed and encouraged him on. As I left the clubhouse I wondered how that Christmas holiday would end. Sure enough, car doors banged and cuss words were flowing loudly. In this case, the next morning during coffee hour, the couple was not there. We can all get off track at times. However, the negative guest Christmas departures, with the sounds of slamming are greatly outnumbered by positive sounds of guests who joined all in banging cups at the clubhouse tables at Tuesday gathering. All awaited a fresh brew of coffee saluting the hosts. It was a pleasure to introduce these amazing northerners. One wrapped it up by stating, “My folks made decisions for me long ago that were not necessarily theirs”. Seniors then shouted, “Go for it. Live married or otherwise with who you will, have a ball, spend it all” was the cry we all rang out. We preserve your right to choose for yourselves. LJ-0100099044


My artifacts and restoration material are from various counties in Michigan. Restorations are identified. A carriage house stands in back of the house.

In contacting Senator Debbie Stabenow’s office, staff members stressed the need; wholeheartedly endorsing respite from care giving. Examples—Mom can take a break from chasing toddlers, getting shoes fastened on time to catch the bus, or a teen could be giving parents trouble. A time out may be in order. A warm bath in a 100 year old house filled with antiques and other paraphernalia might be the change of pace needed. Other options could include a gay nineties dress up birthday party, wedding anniversary; going away party or a small graduation celebration. A public or private school field trip, summer or bible meetings could be held at a dining room table. This could simulate a father figure reading scripture, prayer or even home school on snow days at a large table in the late 1890s. Jan Warrington’s residence could provide a place for grand or great grandparents to express their inner child freely as they reminisce about simpler times. Society as a whole can make it hard for a senior’s inner child to bloom. Others many not understand when they left behind the sobering side of their personality; bogged down with the process of making a living and paying more bills than a paycheck can cover—pinching pennies for manageable challenges. A senior’s inner child is free again; as it was in their earlier days to bring warmth to those about them. The relaxed carefree inner spirit of the senior can thrive with as much joy and laughter that the grandchildren easily relate to.


generations. Let’s stop saying words like senile or crazy and instead use endearments like “I’m glad to see you enjoying life”. There is nothing sadder than observing a senior’s self esteem lowered because of insensitivity. Seniors can seem emotionally depressed when it’s only reaction from ridicule. Sometimes seniors get all steamed up. Those who patronize will say “naughty, naughty” when it’s really good old fashioned passion from being hurt emotionally and spiritually. A quiet time to simmer down could be the answer. Some tips for dealing with seniors: 1. Determine who has to be on hand to help in an emergency 2. Do not patronize or talk down to them. They are not children. 3. Don’t propose a giant leap if just a baby step will solve the problem. 4. Do not play one against the other to get decisions made. 5. Determine how much responsibility you can take on to help seniors, not just lip service. 6. Do not be a hard nose. Seniors have had a lifetime of experiences with hard knocks. They will not cooperate. 7. Let seniors take the lead. Be sure both parties are aboard on all plans. Do not make plans with one without the other. They have spent their whole life together and do not want to be separated now.

We salute former Governor Granholm for her good work in getting technical companies to come to employ Michiganders. Why a 100 year old Jan Warrington house you might ask? A Lansing city official stated that there are over 500 vacant houses in the capital city. Some were built in the late 1800s in the lumbering era of Virgin Michigan Pines. Taking one under our wings can save some. My heart breaks over the foreclosure of 816 Prospect Street where Jan Warrington’s house is located. I feel compelled to turn this sadness into something good. The cry is freedom for a place to heal from a broken heart, recover from surgery, emotional exhaustion or other stresses that are artificially induced and can be sorted out. But there is also the cry of the City of Lansing. Cry freedom! I have restored this house to the time when it thrived with a family with a good provider. If those with financial means are inspired by this writer, and could restore one of these old homes, that could bring a sense of purpose to others. I belonged to an investment club. Lansing’s 500 vacant homes could be a cry for you! Jan Warrington’s house can be a relief from stress. God grant me the serenity to not create stress, but instead sense what is real pain in myself or others that causes stress, whether it be artificial or otherwise. Most of all help me to recognize the opportunity to do something constructive about it. God Bless you all.

It is hard to strike up the band for the words “I’m wrong” or stand in the gap for someone to bring balance. Where earlier a 100 piece orchestra or rock band was appreciated for entertainment, now a simple flower bowing to a gentle breeze is enough.

Project near Eastwood may start this month Melissa Domsic

LANSING TWP. — Plans to add more retail, parking and apartments near Eastwood Towne Center will move forward with the approval of the Lansing Township Board of Trustees. The 5-0 vote on Tuesday allows the township to use funds from the sale of $22 million in municipal bonds to build about 120,000 square feet of commercial

space and a parking garage on vacant land just north of NCG Eastwood Cinemas. Lansing Township-based DTN Management Co. will build 124 luxury apartments on the site. “This has been such a long process,” township Supervisor John Daher said. “I want to say I’m excited, because I am, but I also know that there’s still a lot of work to do.” The township hopes to start foundation work in late June or early July, with some buildings complete by November. A full grand opening is slated for August 2012. The board also unanimously approved a request

by the movie theater to build a 17,470-square-foot addition with 440 seats and a large-format screen that’s 70 feet wide and three stories tall. Theater owner Steve Smith said he’s concerned that customers from the new restaurants and stores will take up parking spaces reserved for the movie theater.

sense used, because my parking is sacred to me.” Daher said the township hired a national parking expert to help plan the development. “I’ve worked with Steve Smith for 10 years. We’re going to do whatever we can to accommodate him,” Daher said. “I’m not an expert on parking. I realize that cross-parking is an absolute necessity in order for this project to succeed. How that works out, I’m going to leave to the experts.”

The DDA plans to use lease payments from commercial tenants, fees and other income to pay back the $22 million in bonds as well as pay Eyde annual rent.
