Roundabout plan shown Hearing set for Feb. 15 to transportation board E. L. closer to medical

marijuana ordinance

By DAWN PARKER dlparker@lsj.com

EAST LANSING – The case for a roundabout at Park Lake and Burcham is straightforward, according to two Ingham County Road Commission representatives who spoke at last Monday’s East Lansing Transportation Committee meeting. The road commission plans to construct the roundabout at that intersection using a $600,000 federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant. The grant should cover all related costs, road commission director of engineering Bob Peterson said. Any additional costs would be paid by the road commission, not by East Lansing or Meridian Township, whose boundaries the road touches. ICRC director Bill Conklin also spoke at the meeting, telling commission members the roundabout project initially became eligible for grant funds some five to six years ago. City council members approved the project at that

EAST LANSING – The city’s medical marijuana moratorium may expire Feb. 16 – then again, it may not. At their Jan. 25 work session, council members set a public hearing for their meeting of Tuesday, Feb. 15.

The hearing will consider Ordinance 1245C, which establishes regulations governing commercial medical marijuana operations. The ordinance could be approved at that meeting, or the council could vote to extend the moratorium. Under the terms of the revised ordinance, such op-

erations would be allowed as a special land use in B-4 zoning, which zoning and planning administrator Darcy Schmitt said is in existing professional office areas.

Ingham County Road Commission director of engineering Bob Peterson explains how a roundabout works to members of the East Lansing Transportation Commission. The road commission plans to build a roundabout at the Park Lake-Burcham intersection by summer 2012. time, but it was delayed due to funding issues. The funding is available in fiscal year 2011, but Peterson said the installation will most likely not be completed until summer 2012. He attributed the delay

What’s next • A second public hearing on the proposed roundabout is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 1 at the Meridian Township Hall, 5151 Marsh Road. • The East Lansing Transportation Commission sought more information in order to make a recommendation to the city council. Its next meeting is Monday, Feb. 21.

to time needed for design work and to purchase needed right-of-way in the area. The funding can only be used for the purpose specified by the grant, Conklin stressed. “It cannot be used for general maintenance or toward the general fund,” he said. The planned roundabout would have one lane of traffic in each direction, making it similar to existing circles at Marsh and Hamilton and Hulett and Bennett roads, both in Okemos.

OHS to perform thought-provoking comedy

Definition of Insanity.

PRIVATE TRAINING GETS RESULTS.

3 Towne Courier

OKEMOS — Okemos High School’s drama department will perform comedy star Steve Martin’s “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” in the OHS auditorium as the department’s winter production. Holly Bodjanac, the play’s director, said, “This show is one of my favorites. It makes you laugh out loud, but it also makes you think. It is fun for the audience to watch. I have always been a fan of Steve Martin, and I am honored to be performing one of his shows.” It is the classic “two guys walk into a bar” joke taken to a whole new level with the fictionalized meeting of Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, both in their early 20s, and both about to change the course of history. The year is 1904, and Einstein is set to publish his book, The Theory of Special Relativity the following year; Picasso will paint his masterpiece, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon in 1907. The characters come together in a bar called The Lapin Agile — translated as The Nimble Rabbit — to talk about what it takes to be a true genius and who will make the biggest impact on the 20th century. In addition to Einstein and Picasso, there is a “messenger from the future” who will be easily recognizable to the audience and also influential in the 20th century. Throughout the play, Martin seamlessly weaves a witty banter, while also getting the audience to think about what we

Many roles

He worked in five different areas of the department during his first six years there, eventually rising to lead Public Health in 1997. That division disbanded 18 months ago, and Styka closed out his career in the

Health Care Fraud area. May of 1971 was a busy month – besides graduation and a new job, he and his wife, Georgia, were married May 28. Georgia, a teacher in the Okemos schools, had graduated from Michigan State that March with a degree in education. The couple met in 1970 at the state Democratic convention at the Pantlind Hotel (now the Amway Grand)

When he first decided to run for school board in 1990, Styka said his motivation was ensuring Okemos schools remained top drawer. “I thought they were the best in the area at the time,” he recalled. Styka won election a total of five times, once by fewer than 21 votes, and retired as its president. Now that he’s hung up his gavel, Styka hopes to be regarded as someone who did well by Okemos students and the community. “I want to be remembered as someone who put kids first, someone who was willing to try new and better ways of educating them, and as someone who cared about people and respected people,” he said.

would first yield to pedestrians, then to cars already in the circle. The grade of the roundabout would be raised 3-1/2 feet, helping counter speed from drivers traveling southbound, which Conklin said would help naturally slow speeds.

Accidents

Conklin said three or four angle “T-bone” crashes occur annually at the Park Lake-Burcham intersection, along with other types of accidents. The intersection has been evaluated for a traditional signal, but Conklin said accident data did not warrant the installation of a signal. East Lansing resident Bill Hartwig, a 36-year employee of the Michigan Department of Transportation who retired as the head of the Transportation Projection Planning Commission, told commissioners roundabouts were safe for pedestrians and saved time and energy. “The notion that roundabouts are somehow pedestrian-unfriendly is simply not true,” Hartwig said.

The continuous movement of traffic is also a plus for roundabouts. “You may have to slow down to 20 miles per hour sometimes, but you keep moving,” Hartwig said, while noting reduced travel time usually equals lower energy use. Hartwig said he began studying roundabouts in the early 1990s, and worked with a British engineer to bring the circles to Michigan and the U.S. Roundabouts are safer, he said, because the number of conflict points is reduced for all travelers. Another factor is the $6,000 to $8,000 annual cost to operate and maintain a signal, which public works director Todd Sneathen said is three to four times what it would cost to keep up a roundabout. “Whether people are there or not to use a signal, it still operates,” Hartwig said.

Speeding

East Lansing Police Capt. Tom Johnstone said his department does see excessive speeds from drivers traveling east on Burcham, a 25 mph zone. The speed limit on Park Lake is 35 mph.

“Because of the hill (coming east from Hagadorn), it’s easy to find people speeding,” Johnstone added. Conklin cited statistics saying serious crashes are reduced 75 percent and all accidents decline 30 percent, corroborated by Meridian Township Lt. Greg Frenger, who said accidents at both Okemos roundabouts have declined over time. There were three crashes adjacent to the Marsh and Hamilton circle in 2010 – one single-car, one sideswipe and one rear-end collision – but none in the circle itself. That compares to 14 crashes in 2003 and 13 in 2001. At Bennett and Hulett in 2001 – before a roundabout was installed – there were five crashes. There were four crashes in 2005, with a circle in place, and four in 2010 – two in the circle, and two due to traffic backups. Frenger said he believes roundabouts have reduced the severity of crashes at those intersections. “Hamilton and Marsh, when I started working here, that was a terrible intersection for crashes,” he said, citing the limited sight dis-

tance traveling west across Hamilton. “I think at Hamilton and Marsh it’s made a difference. As time has gone on, crash numbers have gone down, and I do believe it’s probably slowed people down.” Commissioner Laura

Goddeeris said she slows down considerably when approaching the intersection during the winter months, in case another driver doesn’t stop. “I can see this (the roundabout) mitigating some of those concerns,” she added.

Vice-chair Konrad Hittner was more skeptical. “I’ve never really experienced congestion problems at that intersection,” he said. “I’m not sure I see the cost benefit being terrific, in terms of my own traffic experience.”

Closer: Rules for marijuana dispensaries finalized

Continued from page 1

to the number of registered caregivers who could open a business, but such a dispensary would have to abide by all relevant rules and regulations. Those include being 1,000 feet from any schools or registered day care facilities and a separation of

500 feet from any other dispensary. Individual caregivers would be permitted to grow marihuana in their homes, but cannot have patients come to them. Having dispensaries in B-4 zoning would allow patients to visit an office without the visibility of a storefront location, an idea which has found favor with some. “It’s

more private for the patient and the caregiver,” Schmitt said. Hours of operations may be imposed as part of the special use permit, and a surveillance camera could be a security measure when no one is in the building. The owner of the property would have to request the special use permit, but the caregiver would

not have to identify themselves to council. There would be no limit placed on the number of caregivers in a dispensary. “All we can regulate is the commercial aspects,” council member Kevin Beard said. The language in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act has created uncertainty in many communi-

ties statewide, and East Lansing is no exception. Assistant city attorney Tom Yeadon said legal action is always a possibility. Could it be challenged? Yes, because the act is so vague as to what it will allow and won’t allow,” Yeadon said, adding he was confident in the city’s ability to meet any legal challenges. ❚ LARGE SELECTION OF FASHION FRAMES & SUNGLASSES

It’s been just over a month since I started at SOF and I couldn’t be happier. I came here because, bottom line, I wanted results. I had been looking around to find a gym that would help me get past the plateau I’ve been on. I was tired of using the typical gym equipment and was looking for more. I had done my research and knew the staff was very knowledgeable and experienced in their field and I was intrigued by their training philosophy and program. I signed up for the 21 day trial and after my first session I knew I was hooked. I know there are a lot of gyms out there that have a lot to offer (I’ve belonged to quite a few in the area), but SOF finally feels like home. ~Abby Weston

EAST LANSING — The East Lansing Arts Commission newest exhibit — entitled, “Connections: Works in Wax” by local artist Jeremy Mason — will be celebrated at a special opening reception on Sunday, Feb. 6 from 1-2 p.m. at the East Lansing Public Art Gallery. Financial planner by day and artist by night, Jeremy Mason said he has always been creative. He never quite knew how to express his creativity, but when he bought a new house more than three years ago and needed art for the walls, his life as a painter began Since that time he has immersed himself in the local art scene and his works have been shown throughout

mid-Michigan and in the Traverse City area. Mason sees a connection between what he does during the day and what he does at night, and that duality shows up in his work in a wonderful way. “My work can be chaotic at times, but there are also some Jeremy sensible lines and shapes that tie everyMason thing together,” he said. “My work is a representation of the liberation from my own narrow definition. I use non-traditional methods and raw technique to create honest

Handcrafted Artisan Breads for Your Home or Restaurant

and bold images. “My paintings ask as many questions as they answer. My goal is to explore the depth and range of human emotion while creating snapshots that others can connect with.” The exhibit will be displayed Feb. 6–March 2 at the East Lansing Public Art Gallery, located on the second floor of the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road. The gallery can be visited anytime during regular hours: Monday-Friday from 6 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sunday from noon – 8 p.m. Admission is free.

Icy roads blamed for many crashes in East Lansing an accident, and when they arrived they discovered the vehicle had rolled onto its side. Road conditions were described in the report as “very icy”. Although the driver, a Lansing man driving a Dodge Durango, was not injured, Johnstone said the location and the type of crash required officers to close U.S. 127 for about 40 minutes to right and remove the vehicle. About 15 minutes earlier at the same spot, another vehicle lost control and went into the median. The vehicle sustained minor damage, but no one in the vehicle sustained any injuries.

By DAWN PARKER dlparker@lsj.com

EAST LANSING – The combination of icy temperatures and slick roads made for a busy weekend, Jan. 22-23, for East Lansing police officers. East Lansing Police Capt. Tom Johnstone said his department responded to numerous property damage accidents many in the area of the U.S. 127-Interstate 496-Trowbridge Road interchange. “This time of year in poor weather conditions, that interchange is incredibly icy,” Johnstone said. “Most drivers are familiar with that area, but we know a lot of vehicle traffic from outside the area passes Arrest after brawl through that interchange.” Seven people were arAt 10:46 a.m. Jan. 22, rested and cited following officers responded to an early-morning brawl at southbound U.S. 127 at an apartment complex. Trowbridge on the report of At 2:30 a.m. Jan. 22, offi-

cers were dispatched to the 1000 block of Waters Edge on the report of a fight. Johnstone said officers were told to expect around 10 people involved in the brawl, but found 15 to 20 people when they arrived. Michigan State University and Meridian Township officers also responded. Seven people were arrested and issued disorderly conduct citations for fighting in public, and Johnstone said alcohol was a factor. Only minor injuries were reported. Johnstone said one officer used pepper spray in an attempt to break up the fighting.

Police: Alcohol violations Continued from page 10

An officer on patrol in that area clocked a vehicle traveling at 94 mph in a 70 mph highway one. The officer stopped the vehicle at I-496 and Cedar, and upon contact with the driver the officer detected signs

of intoxication. The man was put through field sobriety tests, after which he was arrested. The man’s bloodalcohol content was measured at .19, more than twice the legal limit in Michigan for intoxication and above the .17 threshold for the state’s new super-drunk

driving statute. Blood-alcohol ratios over .17 brings enhanced fines and penalties, Johnstone said. A special detail to actively seek open container and related alcohol violations involving underage drinking resulted in 51 appearance violations in two days.

Okemos foundation announces big grants

Education grants surpass $40,000 this school year

OKEMOS — The Okemos Education Foundation has announced $17,422 of Strategic Fund grants to the Okemos Public School district. This brings the total amount to $40,535 in this school year that the

non-profit, all-volunteer organization’s newest funding program has provided for valuable learning opportunities at all levels of the district. “The school funding crisis in Michigan has forced our district to delay or eliminate purchases that have a significant impact on our students,” said Dean Bolton, the foundation’s chair. “The foundation created the Strategic Fund to help maintain

activities and programs that the district can no longer afford. We are so grateful that our community has stepped up to the challenge of maintaining excellence in Okemos Public Schools.” This round of grants includes • funds to purchase art and business software for Okemos High School classes; • math instruction computer programs for Kinawa School • funding for supplies for elec-

tive courses at Kinawa and Chippewa Schools • and language arts intervention software for the elementary schools. Since its creation in 2010, the foundation’s Strategic Fund has also provided funds for 17 afterschool clubs, new textbooks, and field trips for Okemos students. “We are so appreciative of the efforts of the OEF and the generosity of our community! Once again,

the OEF has secured funding to truly have a positive and meaningful impact on our classrooms and our students. This is another example of our district’s mission ‘Together...educating with excellence...’,” remarked Okemos Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Catherine Ash.

Haslett choir’s ‘shake-up’ event at Spartan Stadium By DAWN PARKER dlparker@lsj.com

HASLETT – It’s February, Teresa Williams reasoned – time for a party. That was three years

ago, and “February Shake Up!” has become a popular fund-raiser for the Haslett High School Choir Boosters. This year’s event is going to another level – the

Spartan Club at Spartan Stadium. The party is set for 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 5. Tickets are $30 or $50 per couple in advance, or $35 apiece at the door. Dress is tailgate casual for this adults-only event, the theme is “Tailgate Time” and all proceeds benefit the Haslett Choir Boosters.

Scholarships

Funds help many students meet non-budgeted expenses – for example, scholarships to summer music camps. The chance to help students keeps attendance

up, Williams said, and contributes to an average of $7,000 raised annually. “It’s so amazing to see the community come together,” she added. The evening includes live music from Party of Seven, headed up by Haslett dad Tim Colonnese, along with dancing, hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, silent auction and a raffle.

Auction items

Silent auction items include a stay at a Boyne Mountain cabin, a wine tasting party, photography sessions, sailing lessons, jewelry, golf packages,

salon packages and gift cards to restaurants like Dusty’s Cellar and Bravo Cucina Italia. Other items include passes to the Michigan Athletic Club, a gift certificate from Capitol Harley-Davidson, a prom package featuring $150 toward a dress from Lett’s Bridal, a one-night stay at the East Lansing Marriott, a youth golf membership at Meridian Sun Golf Club, the right to conduct a song at the high school holiday concert and a pair of Apple tutoring sessions by high school TV coordinator Brian Town.

victories in a three-year span and was consistently finishing at the bottom of the league standings. “It was difficult at times, going up against big powerhouse teams and knowing that we just didn’t have the type of bowlers to compete with them,” Matsudo recalls. But this year has taken on a new twist — and things are looking up for the Haslett bowling team. The Vikings jumped out to a surprising 5-0 start this season, including wins over Charlotte and Corunna, two teams consistently among the area’s best. Haslett has already won more matches this year than it had in Matsudo’s first three years combined. They currently sit at 5-1 on the season, which is tied for the top record in the CAAC.

smerriman@lsj.com

When Dean Matsudo took over as Haslett’s boys varsity bowling coach four years ago, he inherited a team not traditionally known for winning. In fact, the Vikings had been picked to finish last in the league standings in every year of the team’s existence. “We were always known as a golf, soccer or swimming school. All those sports would dominate,” Matsudo said. “When I took over the position, I just wanted to try and build the program to the point where we could compete, and have some fun along the way.” The Vikings struggled in the first three years under Matsudo. The team managed only four total

“It’s like we have shocked the rest of the bowling community with our recent success.” — coach Dean Matsudo Winning perspective “It’s been very exciting for everyone involved,” Matsudo said of his team’s recent success. “Originally, we wanted to just make it fun, and now that we are winning, it makes it even more enjoyable and adds a different perspective on things.” The Vikings are led by Arthur Harris and Phillip Prescher. Harris is a transfer from Lansing Sexton, who has provided an immediate boost to the team. Prescher is a junior, who has been

one of the mainstays in Haslett’s starting lineup. The team received new uniforms this past year, which features a lightning bolt across the shirt. Matsudo believes that the lightning bolt is a sign for the energy that has struck the team this season. “It used to be that we would get no respect, that we couldn’t compete at a high level, but now, we’ve started gelling together and winning some games,” Matsudo said. “It’s like we have shocked the rest of the bowling commu-

Trojan girls find winning formula By SEAN MERRIMAN

smerriman@lsj.com

EAST LANSING- The formula is simple for East Lansing’s girls basketball team: Get out and run, make your open shots, and you can give any opposing defense fits. The Trojan’s did just that in their last Tuesday matchup against Grand Ledge. Deborah Hoekstra scored a game-high 29 points and East Lansing shot 50 percent from the field in a 69-43 victory over the Comets in a CAAC Blue contest. “We shared the ball really

000J2++*#.='J4'9

a little scared at one point.” The closest that Grand Ledge would come in this game is when they were able to cut the deficit down to 11 in the second quarter, but the Trojans responded with a 6-0 run to put it away. “Grand Ledge is a really good team that has taken some teams to the wire, but fortunately for us, we didn’t let it get to that point,” Smith said. “I’m just really pleased with the way we came out, defended hard, and then we were able get some nice baskets on offense. “This was a complete basketball game that our team played here tonight.”

Sports briefs

East Lansing boys continue winning ways

John McAdoo helped lead a balanced scoring attack for East Lansing with 16 points as the Trojans (10-1, 5-0) defeated Grand Ledge 81-60 in this CAAC Blue contest. Delvin Bell had 15 points and Tracey Edmond chipped in with 13 points for East Lansing. The Trojans posted a big win Jan. 21 over Okemos, 75-67, roaring back from a 24-9 first quarter deficit. Edmond led the Trojans in scoring with 17, and Bell chipped in 10.

Okemos rebounds to defeat Jackson

Chris Harrison-Docks scored a team high 25 points to lead Okemos (8-2, 3-1) to the 64-52 CAAC Blue victory over Jackson. Mack McKearney added 17 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists. The win keeps Okemos league title hopes alive.

Rose Brogan scored 11 points and senior Kelsey DeShambo added eight rebounds for the Trojans (8-3). “We’re a pressing and running team, and we are starting to get to that point where we can throw five girls on the court that create a tough guard for anyone,” said East Lansing coach Rob Smith, whose team had 10 different players score in the victory. “A lot of our success tonight has to do with that we were extremely patient and we are getting good shots. After that, it was a matter of maintaining because they made some runs and got us

nity with our recent success.” In addition to the success that Haslett has had with its boy’s team, the school was also able to add its first girls varsity bowling team this year. While they have not had as much success as the boys team in the win column, Matsudo is extremely impressed with their improvement from where they started to where they are now. “When we first had tryouts not one girl could break 100, and now they are all averaging over 125, which is pretty amazing to see,” Matsudo said. “The main thing here is that I love seeing kids getting involved with the sport of bowling. “Not only are they learning to play the game, but we are giving kids skills that they can use for the rest of their life.”

well tonight on the offensive end and no one played selfish in this game,” Hoekstra said. “We were able to shoot such a high percentage because we were passing up good shots to get great shots. That’s just part of playing East Lansing basketball.” The Trojans took control of this game by jumping out to an early 17-3 lead in the first quarter and putting on the cruise control button from there on out. They relied on an aggressive style of defense to create easy shots on the other end of the court. Junior forward Natalie

Zach Parker had 18 points and Joe Varlesi added 17 but Haslett fell to Williamston 53-51 in a nonleague matchup Tuesday night. The victory marked the first time in the past five years that Williamston has defeated Haslett. “A lot of our kids are real good friends with their kids, so other than the loss, the game is a lot of fun,” Haslett coach Rob Porritt said.

Okemos girls rally to victory

Junior guard Julia Grisdela scored 17 points including five 3-pointers as the Chieftains withstood a fourth-quarter rally to down Jackson 53-47 in CAAC Blue action.
