Lansing’s ‘night out’ is breath of fresh air



LANSING — Doug and Denise Vanscoy did not shy away from a Lansing neighborhood watch party Aug. 10. Their granddaughter 7-year-old Amaia Edmond was fatally shot last month and they wanted to show support for the neighborhood watch groups committed to preventing crime. Wearing a colorful T-shirt and pin recognizing the young life lost, Denise Vanscoy said that neighbors need each other, whether it’s for a kind word, moral support or the courage to rely on police. “People need to know their neighbor,” she said, speaking outside the Gier Community Center in north Lansing. Approximately 50 neighbors had gathered for a family-style picnic of hot dogs, cupcakes and basketball. Across the city, the Lansing Police Department and nearly 30 other neighborhood watch groups held similar picnics to honor National Night Out. It’s an event intended to band communities together to fight crime and let criminals know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against their dark forces. “Neighborhood watch is key to our city,” said inter-

Residents gather outdoors for Lansing’s version of National Night Out, a time for neighboors to talk about various safety issues and get to know each other. im Police Chief Teresa Szymanksi, who mingled with members of the Lewton Rich Neighborhood Association in south Lansing. “We believe in it. It works.” She noted there are 201 neighborhood watch groups. Because of their influence - activities range from talking to residents, talking to police and keeping tabs on crime - crimes are being prevented and criminals are getting arrested, Szymanski said. Earlier in the day, 23-yearold Jerry Brian McKinney of Lansing turned himself in for questioning in connection to Amaia’s death. She was caught in the crossfire between her stepfather and an intruder at his home in the 100 block of Custer Avenue. Hundreds gathered for a recent vigil held in honor

LANSING — The way Toni Glasscoe laid it out, the younger students were “coming to LCC to see what you can be.” As for the older ones, the high school kids just a year or two off from college, they were “coming to LCC to find out how I can get mo’ money. Can I hear it? Mo’ money.” The crowd chanted it back to her. The 100 or so students in the audience already had been promised money. They were HOPE Scholars, at-risk students from the Lansing public schools who’d had an offer extended

to them in the sixth grade: graduate from high school or earn a GED and get two years of tuition, fees and books from Lansing Community College for free. The academy, which took place Aug. 10 at LCC, was a way of making sure they and their parents knew how to take advantage of it. Which is why Victoria Jackson was sitting in LCC’s Dart Auditorium with her 16-year-old daughter, Ciara. Her daughter is a good student, a good basketball player, she said, and the program “gives her a step up, gives her an opportunity to get her foot in the door and do something with her life.” See H.O.P.E./page 2

of Amaia and another homicide victim, 19-year-old Shayla Johnson. Plenty of other city officials attended the LewtonRich neighborhood watch party, including council members and city administrators. There was live music and red, white and blue festoonery strung around street signs. People were chatting while waiting in line for food and while resting after a good summer meal of hot dogs, chips and watermel-

on. “Hi, new neighbors,” organizer Patty Farhat called out, waving at Terresa Acou, and her son, Rod Martin. They moved a few months ago from Canton, near Detroit. They don’t remember having neighborhood events like the one they experienced on Aug. 10. “It creates a certain amount of camaraderie between the homeowners,” Acou said. “It’s definitely a plus.”

“Any roadblocks along the way, I want to be aware of and try to avoid them.” Part of what makes going to college intimidating is “the process,” said Glasscoe, LCC’s director of K-12 initiatives and career preparation, the process of filling out financial aid forms, getting registered on time, all the bureaucratic rigmarole required just to get through the door. That’s why the people involved in HOPE use what Glasscoe called an “intensive, high-touch strategy,” keeping tabs on students, helping to connect them with support services, trying to make sure they apply for all the grant and scholarship money available to them. The last of those is perhaps more urgent now that many who have supported the program have shifted their attention to the Lansing School District’s Promise Zone, which would extend LCC scholarship offers more broadly. Former Lansing Police Chief Mark Alley, who conceived the HOPE program in 2000, and others “cannot continue to fund-raise,” Glasscoe said, “because now they’re fundraising for Lansing Promise.” But for the youngest students - participants are identified in sixth grade - paying for college was still a ways off. They were there just to see what college was about and to start imagining themselves as college students. “I think it’s having a positive effect,” said Lee Leatherberry, as he accompanied his son, Banashe Aahari, on a campus tour. “It gives him hope. Even if it doesn’t work out, it still makes him strive.” Banashe, who is going into seventh grade at Pattengill Middle School, summed up his feelings on the day with a single word. “Cool.”

JazzFest success comes from music By ALISHA GREEN

LANSING — Jazz isn’t just background music anymore, according to local musicians. Anyone who thinks differently can hear why they should reconsider their stance after this year’s Lansing JazzFest, at the intersection of Turner Street and East Grand River Avenue. “You don’t have to be a jazz aficionado to enjoy the music that we perform,” said Neil Gordon, guitarist for

the Neil Gordon Trio. The group played several songs at JazzFest on Aug. 6 from their first CD release, called “It Takes Three,” along with their own arrangements of some R&B songs, pop songs and jazz standards updated with their own take on the music. “The music is always evolving,” Gordon said. “People are always coming Matthew Dae Smith/For the Lansing State Journal forward with fresh approaches to the music and Emily Thompson, 25, and David Torres, 28, both of offering original ideas, and Lansing, dance to Orquesta Ritmo at JazzFest in Old See

JazzFest: Music festival continues to grow in Lansing Continued from page 6

the music stays new and alive and interesting.” Michael Sailors, the composer and arranger who conducts and rehearses the Sailors/Delancey Jazz Orchestra, agreed that musicians are keeping jazz fresh, and part of that is in the way they perform on stage. “I think more than ever today it is in the musicians’ hands to make it entertaining,” Sailors said. “When I have shows here in Lansing I make it entertaining, and people come out and say that was very different from the usual jazz experience they have.” The jazz scene in Lansing may seem small now, Sailors said, but it also seems to be improving in quality. “Musicians are getting better,” he said. “Michigan State turns out students every year who can really play their instruments and they know the history of jazz; they know the history of their instruments, so there are people in town who really understand how jazz should be played.” Sailors said he is moving out of state, so this was his last show in Michigan, he said. He composed a three-movement suite dedicated to Michigan. JazzFest isn’t the only place to catch the genre in the Lansing area, however. The Neil Gordon Trio and other jazz bands can also be found playing at local venues like Moriarty’s Pub in Lansing and Mumbai in East Lansing on Thursday nights, Gordon said.

Zoo offers rare program LANSING — Potter Park Zoo, the oldest accredited zoo in Michigan, is now one of only 19 international locations to be accredited with a postdoctoral residency program by the American College of Zoological Medicine. Filling that position for the 2010-2013 cycle will be Justin R. Schlanser, D.V.M., the first resident in the new animal care program. “This is a significant achievement for Potter Park Zoo,” Zoo Veterinarian and Animal Curator Dr. Tara Harrison said. “Not only is this program the first of its kind in Michigan, but the accreditation puts us in a select group of facilities worldwide recognized for top-notch post doctoral training in zoological medicine.” The three-year residency incorporates Potter Park Zoo, Toledo Zoo, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health. The program connects the institutions in a way that allows post doctoral veterinary students the opportunity to gain exceptional clinical training in a variety of settings. Dr. Schlanser will be placed on a rotation between the five organizations, during which time he will learn the general aspects of zoological medicine such as an-

imal husbandry, nutrition, preventive medicine, pathology, and surgery with animals in a both a captive and free-ranging environment. The program is designed to further train veterinarians who have already earned doctoral degrees but are interested in specializing in the area of zoological medicine. “Dr. Schlanser is an excellent choice for the first Potter Park Zoo resident in zoological medicine,” said Harrison. A 2003 graduate of Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Schlanser began his veterinary career in the Veterinary Corps Division of the United States Army. He attained the rank of Major and has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He earned the Meritorious Service Medal and was selected to be the first veterinarian to serve as an elite U.S. Army Ranger with the 75th Ranger Regiment at Fort Benning, Ga. A native of Northville, Dr. Schlanser and his family recently relocated to Ingham County from Georgia. Potter Park Zoo is located at 1301 S. Pennsylvania Ave. within Potter Park along the Red Cedar River in Lansing. The zoo is open daily year-round, summer hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call (517) 483-4222 or visit — From Potter Park Zoo

ical job of training the physicians of the future,” said Dr. Thomas Petroff, vice president of medical affairs at Ingham Regional. Prior to accepting the position at Ingham Regional, Dr. Patterson served as assistant professor of internal medicine at Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Patterson has received numerous teaching honors,

including multiple faculty teaching awards and hospital teaching awards from Ingham Regional, as well as two distinguished lecturer awards from the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University.

Raptors win AYBT state title The Mid Michigan Raptors, which features Cole Jamieson of Lansing Christian and a host of other area players, won the Michigan American Youth Basketball (AYBT) state title and finished third in the national tournament in Fort Wayne, Ind. The AYBT is a summer, grade-based, youth basketball organization. The tour hosts 5 on 5 basketball events throughout the Midwest and east coast. The season series starts in each state where the teams compete over a series of weekends hosted by towns all over the state. The teams are seeded based on their records and the state season culminates with a single elimination tournament hosted by Central Michigan University. The Raptors had an amazing run and captured the crown with a thrilling one point win over Little Ma Powers out of Detroit. The team continued on to the National Tournament where they lost in the semi finals finishing third overall.
