Portland officials discuss offers for energy needs

Knights assist area schools

The Portland Knights of Columbus Council 2168 raised over $5,000 during its 2011 Tootsie Roll drive earlier this year. These funds were donated to area schools to be used for their programs. On hand for the presentation of checks were (front row, l. to r.)

PORTLAND — Where the City of Portland receives its electricity in the future is an issue that will be brought before the City Council in the near future. Portland city manager Tom Dempsey discussed two possible transactions at the council’s July 5 meeting that would supply a portion of the city’s power needs in the future. Both transactions would take place in conjunction with the Michigan Public Power Agency (MPPA) of which Portland is a member. One project would a partial ownership through the MPPA of a natural gas combined cycled facility located in Fremont, Ohio. The plant is owned by American Municipal Power and would provide power to MPPA members. “What is great about this project is that it is 99 percent complete so there is almost no construction risk,” said Dempsey. “The plant uses natural gas, which is environmentally friendly, and is

located near major gas pipelines and near high voltage electrical lines.” Dempsey said that as part of the transaction Portland would receive about 600 kilowatts of power during the peak usage time, which generally is between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. each day. “The MPPA has performed an independent assessment of this project and have stated that the is the best deal that they have seen,” said Dempsey. “The MPPA has been looking into this technology for years and this project has been the best option that they have come across.” Dempsey also said that it would provide an alternate power source in natural gas. The two plants that Portland currently has an interest in through the MPPA are both coal plants. They are the Belle River plant north of Detroit and the Campbell plant between Holland and Grand Haven. Dempsey added that a proposal to See ENERGY, Page 4

Pewamo woman to go to trial for March incident Kevin Grasha


ST. JOHNS — On March 7, Nichole Munson climbed into the trunk of a car armed with a stun gun and wearing sunglasses, dark clothes, surgical gloves, and combat boots, according to testimony Wednesday. It’s not clear what Munson planned to

do, because the car’s driver, Gayla Harkness, pulled over to the side of the road, found Munson — the ex-wife of her boyfriend — crouched in the trunk. Harkness immediately summoned help. Clinton County Prosecutor Chuck Sherman said during a preliminary hearing Wednesday in 65A District Court that Munson’s ultimate goal is not known.

“What we can prove,” Sherman told Judge Richard Wells, “is it was something with malicious intent.” Munson, 35, of Pewamo was ordered to stand trial on several counts, including carjacking, car theft and armed robbery. No trial date was set. Her attorney, Ron Zawacki, argued that because Munson’s name was on the car’s


title at the time, it couldn’t be a carjacking or a theft. “You can’t carjack your own car,” Zawacki said in court, noting that a month before the incident, the judge handling Munson’s divorce awarded the 2006 Chrysler 300 to her. See CARJACKING, Page 4

land Community Arts Council (PCAC) has announced its new “Lens of the Community” photography project. Portland residents and visitors are encouraged to submit photographs that depict Portland. The photographs will be displayed and sold at Riverfest, Aug. 19-21, and select photos will be published in a collectible book depicting the year in images. To facilitate the project, the PCAC is offering three walking workshops, where beginners to professionals can improve their photography skills. “The Lens of the Community project is designed to collect snapshots of our community,” said PCAC Director Rush Clement. “We want to continue this project every year, and create a series of books depicting Portland’s ‘history’ as it happens.” Everyone is encouraged to participate in this project, from beginners to professionals. To enter, submit two copies of each photograph, using the form on the PCAC website. All photos must be 5” x 7” or 4” x 6”, and may be in color or black and white. There is a $5 entry fee per photo, and a maximum of three photos per entrant. PCAC mem-

played outside local businesses. Those who would like to bid on a chair can simply go into the business, register as a bidder, and place a bid. Bids begin at $50 and are in $5 increments. “A person can register once and then bid on any of the chairs downtown,” said Clement. We encourage people to keep checking (and raising) their bids.” The person with the highest bid on Oct. 15 wins that chair. The PCAC is also giving a People’s Choice award to one artist. “Throughout the summer, people can go into the sponsoring business and put money in a canister to vote for that chair,” Clement said. “At the end of the summer, we’ll tally the votes, and the chair that brought in the most money wins.” Clement noted that the PCAC will award half of the money raised through votes to the winning artist. The remainder of the money, and money raised through the silent auction, will help support the PCAC’s many programs, events, and activities throughout the year. Sponsors include Duff Chadwick and Associates, which is displaying a chair depicting Chief Okemos, painted by Derek Rainey; Cheeky Monkeys, displaying a chair painted by Jessica Marks; and Raffaeles’ Marketplace, displaying a chair painted by Potterville artists Kimberly, Casey, and Lilly Conklin. Downtown businesses that would like to sponsor a chair should contact Rush Clement at (517) 647-6545. Clement noted that helping to support Portland busi-

Dempsey also informed the council of a second proposal through the MPPA for a 10-year agreement for power from a nuclear plant located in Illinois. “With this purchase we would receive one-third of our base power needs and we would know the pricing structure for the next 10 years.” Dempsey added that the plant is already online and the company, Next Era, has a good reputation for pro-

viding clean power and is financially solid. “Both of these projects would diversify our power sources to include natural gas and nuclear sources along with coal,” said Dempsey. “If you think there will be a carbon tax or a cap and trade, then you would want to do this. If a carbon tax is enacted, demand for power from these sources would go up.” The 10-year contract would include a 3 percent increase every year. Portland would receive 0.3 megawatts of power. Dempsey added that members of the city’s Light and Power Board have met with MPPA representatives at length and recommend joining both projects. Dempsey added that a resolution to join the nuclear power project may not come for a few months.


Outside the courtroom, Zawacki said he expects to challenge the charges in Circuit Court. Harkness, who works in dining hall services at Michigan State University, testified that she was driving home the afternoon of March 7, when the trunk light came on. Harkness lives north of St. Johns. She said the trunk light went off, but came back on again shortly before she took the Price Road exit off U.S. 127. According to testimony: Harkness pulled over, and

face up to the sunglasses. The two did not get along, and Harkness said there was bad blood between them. According to testimony, Munson came up with a scheme to stage a robbery at her own house and blame Harkness. That friend, Audrey Gross, who took nursing classes at Lansing Community College with Munson, testified that she had driven Munson past Harkness’s home at Munson’s request. Clinton County sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Fritz Sandberg testified that one day after the incident Munson admitted being in the trunk. She did, Sandberg testified, after he claimed there was an MSU surveillance video of her climbing into the trunk. Such a video does not exist. Munson also told Sandberg that the stun gun may have fallen out of her bag onto the trunk floor.

tried to shut the trunk, which she said was slightly open, but it wouldn’t latch. Harkness eventually decided to access the trunk through the back seat. What she then saw made her think, “I’m about to die,” she testified. On the trunk’s floor, she saw a stun gun, a set of keys to the car — and someone wearing combat boots, dark clothing and rubber surgical gloves. Harkness said she screamed and fought against the person in the trunk as that person tried to get through the seat. Eventually it shut, and Harkness ran. “All I could think was I needed to get out of there,” she testified. As Harkness told two people who’d stopped to help to call 911, Munson drove off in the car. Munson, Harkness testified, was wearing large mirrored sunglasses, and something dark covered her

LANSING — Three area students were among 28 Michigan high school students who found out what it takes to become Michigan State Police (MSP) troopers, as part of the first session of the 35th annual American Legion Student Trooper Program. The program began on June 26 at the MSP Training Academy in Lansing and concluded with a graduation ceremony on July 1. Local students who participated in the program included Kyle and Jasen Benjamin of Portland, and Joshua Volk of Eagle. The week-long program, funded by the American Legion, is conducted by the MSP, with assistance from deputies and local officers of Michigan police agencies. The program is designed for highly motivated young men and women who are seriously interested in careers in law enforcement. In order to attend, each student is responsible for securing his/her own sponsorship from one of the American Legion offices located throughout the state. The program, which is patterned after

a regular MSP trooper recruit school, promotes an educational experience for building teamwork while learning about law enforcement fundamentals. Between P.T. at 6 a.m. and lights-out at 10 p.m., the students learn about traffic and criminal law, defensive tactics, firearms and marksmanship fundamentals, first-aid, water safety, patrol tactics, crash investigations, law enforcement career opportunities, forensic science, conservation law, narcotics, and underwater recovery. “Each student had the opportunity to get a taste of what it takes to become Michigan State Police troopers,” said Capt. Kari Kusmierz, commander of the MSP Training Academy. “The Michigan American Legion Student Trooper Program promotes the importance of education and helps build teamwork while learning about law enforcement fundamentals. The students also learn the importance of leadership and respect in order to serve as positive role models to others in their community.”

PORTLAND — A Portland High School junior received a high honor in a prestigious writing competition. Jordyn Stirton received a Silver Key in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition sponsored by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers. Stirton submitted an original science fiction piece titled “Marlot Grove.” She is the daughter of Brian and Mandy Stirton. There were approximately 185,000 submissions to the contest in 30 categories. Each submission was judged on originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal vision or voice. “I’m honored to have earned the silver key, and I look forward to writing again for next year’s pro-

Stirton gram” said Stirton. The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers identifies teenagers with exceptional artistic and literary talent and brings their remarkable work to a national audience through the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The awards were founded in 1923 and are the longestrunning, most prestigious

recognition program for creative teens and the largest source of scholarships for young artists and writers in the United States. The program offers opportunities for creative teenagers in grades seven through 12 from public, private and home schools throughout the country and its territories, as well as American-run schools abroad and students who make art and writing through community organizations. Stirton is a member of the PHS concert and marching bands. She was recently inducted into the National Honor Society, and has raised nearly $3,200 in support of her upcoming 19-day trip to Europe with the People to People Student Ambassador Program.

BABY TALK – PART I So you just found out you’re pregnant. Congratulations! That is wonderful! What is even more amazing is that your baby already has a spine, most of the body organs, arms and legs beginning to form, and its own nervous system. And it’s only 5 weeks old! Miraculous! In order for your baby to develop normally, it has two basic needs: One is proper nutrition and the other is a normally operating nervous system. Let’s cover nutrition first. At the risk of insulting my readers, some people operate under the impression that as long as they are not hungry, they eat well. Not true! As a mom, you must be aware of the fact that everything you eat and drink affects your baby. Everything! Generally the baby will take from the mother whatever it needs in terms of nutrition and I have met many mothers in my practice who are literally undernourished as a result. As a mom, you must remember that you are eating for two. Simply “filling up” is not the answer. Your baby has very specific needs as it is growing and developing. Its rate of growth is seven times faster than its three-year-old brother. Much like feeding a baby elephant some may say! The baby will take as much as it can from mom so it is important that mother provides proper fuel for all that rapid growth. So the following are essential for normal development of your baby: 1. Iron. Mom requires at least 800 mg daily. This is crucial for the development of red blood cells in your baby and is contained in most dark leafy veggies. If you must, you can obtain a liquid iron supplement from a health food store. The nicest way of getting iron is from a tablespoon of dark molasses in a glass of milk three times a day. What a way to treat your baby! Taking Vitamin C will help in the absorption of Iron from your digestive tract. 2. Folic Acid. This is very important in the normal development of the nervous system and cannot be omitted. You are lucky though, Folic Acid is contained in most foods which contain iron so it’s a cinch to get. If you really want to get fancy, Oysters are loaded with Folic Acid. They are also a known aphrodisiac and that may be why you are reading this, but that is another topic! 3. Calcium. Our friend! Mom and baby need at least 1200 mg daily. Broccoli is the best source of calcium or you may try raw almonds if you are not into broccoli. Vitamin D helps in the absorption of Calcium from the digestive tract. This can be tricky because Vitamin D can also cause nausea and “morning sickness”. I found that the easiest way of getting Vitamin D is from a careful suntan; whether it be outside or in a reputable tanning salon. If you do decide to use the “electric beach”, be careful of heat. Babies do not like getting too hot! I would also like to caution moms on taking Vitamin B6 when pregnant. It tends to reduce the amount of breast milk available for feeding; not a good thing! I’ll continue in two weeks. See you then! If you would like additional information on this very important subject, please call our office.

With the accompanied support of her parents, Chris and Jamie, as well as her grandfather, Pat, she won second place in her division.
