Dog owners argue park fee strays from original intent Beginning Nov. 1, entry to Soldan Dog Park requires pass By SUSAN VELA svela@lsj.com

Free entry into Soldan Dog Park ends in less than two months. Dog owners will need an electronic pass card to roam through the Lansing-owned, off-leash facility located on the edge of Hawk Island County Park as of Nov. 1. Annual passes will cost $40; $25 for students. Day passes will cost $5. Officials with the Ingham County Parks Department, city of Lansing and Friends of Greater Lansing Dog Parks struck Online an agreement earlier Extra this year to split the For a video, see approximately $7,000 this story at cost of an electronic www.lsj.com. key system. “We will be able to run a safer dog park by having a means of funding improvements to the dog park,” said Murdock Jemerson, director of Lansing’s Parks and Recreation Department. He said the dog park — which attracts up to 100 patrons a day along with their pooches — does not generate any revenue now because entry from Hawk Island County and Scott Woods parks is free, although Hawk Island does charge up to $4 for entry. But some say the fee is just another sign that Soldan is straying from its original intent: A 17-acre romping place, with a large pond, for dogs and their owners. Since the facility opened in 2007,

Soldan Dog Park on the edge of Hawk Island Park in Lansing will begin charging an entrance fee Nov. 1. the park has blocked off a circular path because of some neighbors’ complaints. And, “not everybody can afford $40 for a year especially with the economy the way it is now,” said Maxine Thome, 60, of Lansing. Dog owners can purchase their annual passes starting Oct. 1 from locations that include some county offices and Lansing City Hall. While officials say they’re not sure how much money they’ll raise annually, pamphlets at the park mention plans to use revenues for dog waste bags, Porta-John rentals, fence repairs, erosion control and general improvements. Some patrons would like to see benches installed, but Willis Bennett,

the county’s parks director, said he opposes benches because owners may let their dogs stray beyond their immediate control. Bennett backs the new fee. The cash-pinched county now uses about $2,000 a year for routine Soldan maintenance. “I know that the reasons behind it are all very valid,” Bennett said. Patrons wandering though the park on Sept. 7 mainly were regular users who said they supported the pending fees. “Just so certain people wouldn’t bring certain dogs in,” said Joseph Tomo, a 60-year-old Lansing resident entering the park with his Great Dane, See Dog

lighting the high-achieving school as an example to others. At that event, Lansing Superintendent T.C. Wallace Jr. said the district and its 14,000 students are starting the year with unprecedented community support. That includes an effort by Black Men Inc. of Greater Lansing to get dads involved with their kids’ educations, support from two former Lansing mayors, David Hollister and Tony Benavides, and involvement from area service groups. “That gives us a new level of optimism that the community is getting behind the schools,” Wallace said.

New teacher: ‘My kids’ Nicole Jensen, Elliot Elementary School’s newest Principal Nabila Boctor hugs student Dallas Ledesma, first-grade teacher, already 6, on the first day of classes at Wexford Montessori has seen a lot. Magnet School in Lansing. One student didn’t want ROD SANFORD/Lansing State Journal

to let go of his parents, another wasn’t sure if she was in the right room and another couldn’t fit her box of crayons in her backpack. And that was just the first five minutes of Tuesday’s school day. Jensen is one of 24 new full-time teachers hired at Holt Public Schools. “I’m really excited about this job,” Jensen said. “I’ve been a substitute and have interned but now these are my kids.”

First day is ‘special’

“No matter how many times you do this, it’s special,” he said. “I’m in no way tired.” Lansing Community Newspaper reporters Dawn Parker and Will Kangas contributed to this report.

By the time he and other Lansing School District officials met Granholm at Mount Hope Elementary at 10:15 a.m., Wallace was well into his day. The superintendent started the morning greeting Sexton High School students, then popped in to visit the 60 kids enrolled on the early shift at the district’s new alternative high school, housed within Sexton.

When was the last time your child saved you money?

“It’s off and running,” he said. “It’s wonderful to see nearly every seat filled.” Wallace said he has enjoyed the first day of school every year since 1967, when he started work at a teacher.

District plans to transform Eastern High School changes may mean longer day, intense training By KATHLEEN LAVEY klavey@lsj.com

The Lansing School District is moving ahead with plans to revamp Eastern High School, leaning toward a model that would leave most staffers in their jobs but include a longer school day or year. Wallace “Eastern has demonstrated that the things we started doing last

year to change student achievement are working,” said Principal Susan Land. “We don’t want to fix it if it’s not broken.” Despite substantial gains in student test scores, Eastern has failed to make adequate yearly progress under federal No Child Left Behind rules for more than five years in a row. Last month, it wound up on the state’s list of 92 persistently low-achieving schools. That forces district officials to created a plan by Nov. 16 to change the school.

The district has four models to choose from in mapping a new plan for Eastern. It can: • Replace the principal and at least 50 percent of the staff. • Close the school and reopen it as a charter school or a school managed by a nonprofit organization or the state of Michigan. • Close the school and assign its students to Everett or Sexton high schools. • Use what’s known as a transformational model to change the way Eastern operates. It involves intensive training for teachers and school leaders as well as increased learning time for students. Superintendent T.C. Wallace Jr. dismissed both clos-

ing the school and reopening it as a charter and the option of closing it altogether, saying officials are leaning toward the transformational model.

“That’s the most viable el is also the one that takes option and consistent with the most work and planthe path we are going down,” ning.” Eastern has had several Wallace told the school board at Thursday’s meeting. See Eastern/page 14 “The transformational mod-

Orange fencing lines some of the Lansing River Trail near General Motors’ Lansing Grand River assembly plant, an indication that repairs are needed because of a crumbling shoreline from erosion below. Lansing’s park millage monies are bound to finance the repairs — along with other significant projects — now that voters have renewed the city’s five-year, 1-mill park levy, according to park officials. “We have a long list,” said Ron Lott, a member of the Lansing Park Board. Possibilities include renovating or replacing 20 or more playgrounds, reopening Crego Park after more than two decades, installing splash pads at Gier Park, and tennis court renovations at Dunneback and Lyons parks. Public hearings will begin in November and park officials, including the board and Murdock Jemerson, the city’s parks and recreation director, hope to present the mayor and City Council with its 2011 recommendations near January. The council

Millage renewal The city’s 1-mill park levy generates approximately $2 million a year, Jemerson said. He said the latest River Trail work probably will require about $150,000 of both current and new park millage money. Jemerson said the gabion basket — basically the wall holding the earth and rocks of the shoreline — is collapsing because of runoff. The new millage, while strictly a renewal, doesn’t commence until July 2011. The owner of a home with a

decides on the annual recommendations every spring, during its budget process. Some residents are anxious to see what happens. In fact, their support of the city’s five-year, 1-mill park levy is growing. Passage has gone from 55 percent support in 1990, the levy’s first year, to 73 percent support in the recent Aug. 3 election. Melissa Ciloski, who lives near the River Trail, on Platt Street, said she wasn’t able to vote because she was overwhelmed with her three children. But repairing the River Trail, she said, is a move she approves. “We love the River Trail,” Ciloski said, adding that she
