Kiwanis Club’s $20,000 gift to Haslett library Members of the Kiwanis Club of Haslett have presented a check in the amount of $20,000 to be used for the Haslett Library Move. It is the fulfillment of a pledge made to an ongoing community fund-raising effort. The club’s gift will mean the library’s Community Room will be named in the Kiwanis Club’s honor. From left, are Kiwanis Club president Phil Deschaine and club member Andrew Such, who is co-chairing the campaign to move the Haslett library into the former Meridian High School.

MERIDIAN TWP. — Belts are poised to be cinched tighter in Meridian Township government, now that voters have rejected a Headlee override millage request. Unofficial results from Ingham County Clerk show the proposal failed Nov. 2 by 395 votes, with 7,726 voting no to 7,331 voting yes. Had the request for up to an additional .7998 mills passed, the township would have taken in $550,000 in 2011 and $1.3 Supervisor million in 2012. In the short term, the McGillcuddy proposal’s failure means vacancies in four police and four fire department positions will not be filled. Declining revenues from lower property values will likely mean budget cuts in future years. The only thing to do now is move forward, township manager Gerald Richards said. “We do have a budget for next year,” he said. “From my vantage point … I feel like there was a lot of information out there on the ramifications of whether Headlee passed or failed.”

Informed decision

Richards said information on the proposal was made available through many

“My read on it is people looked at the difficult economic times (we are in) and had to make a decision – do I choose to pay more taxes, or do I risk lower service to pay less taxes? I’m not sure we will ever know.” — Township manager Gerald Richards avenues, notably the Meridian Monitor publication sent out to all residents. “The voters decided that they did not want to tax themselves additionally,” he said. “As a staff, our job doesn’t change. We will continue to provide the best service we can with the resources we have available.” Those resources have been steadily dwindling, leading to an average of 10 positions eliminated in both the 2010 and the 2011 budgets. Further cuts will not be optional, township supervisor Susan McGillicuddy said. “We will have to make some drastic changes township-wide,” she said. See Changes/page 3

“People shouldn’t be surprised.” Additional job cuts are possible in the 2012 fiscal year, Richards said, barring unforeseen revenue increases. The township’s fiscal year follows the calendar year, and the $30 million 2011 budget passed at the board’s Oct. 19 meeting. “We will do our best to provide quality service with the funds in the 2011 budget,” Richards said. Township administrators will pursue efficiencies, he added, including additional collaborative efforts with neighboring communities. The township already shares an assessor with East Lansing, as well as inspection services. Among the options is an experiment with a four-day work week for some township employees beginning next year. However, Richards said additional cuts – no matter how necessary – will make maintaining the same level of service difficult. “My read on it is people looked at the difficult economic times (we are in) and had to make a decision – do I choose to pay more taxes, or do I risk lower service to pay less taxes? I’m not sure we will ever know,” he noted. The proposal could be brought forward again as

“We will have to make some drastic changes township-wide. People shouldn’t be surprised.” — Meridian Supervisor Susan McGillicuddy soon as next November, but that would take a special election. It would also require a vote of the township board. For now, Richards has his

marching orders. “The voters have spoken, and we are going to move forward knowing our revenues and the budget we have to work with,” he said.

Rental restrictions area could be broadened in Glencairn neiborhood By DAWN PARKER


To accommodate their request, Schmitt said it was instead suggested the existing district be amended by adding the properties in question. The December meeting is also scheduled to include a public hearing on Ordinance 1251, which requires an informational sheet to be circulated at least two days prior to circulation of petitions. Schmitt said the informational sheet will be assembled by city officials, and will include information regarding the process and regulations of establishing an overlay district. “It will be like a FAQ

10000 Off

(Frequently Asked Questions document),” he added. There are 16 rental overlay districts in East Lansing with various strictures – some allow new rentals, while some do not. Many of the original overlays came in when the ordinance was passed in 2004. Additions have been steady over the past couple of years, Schmitt said, with requests coming into the planning office every couple of months. Most requests are spurred by individual properties in neighborhoods, he added.

EAST LANSING – The expansion of one of East Lansing’s rental restriction districts in the Glencairn neighborhood will come before the city council next month. At its Nov. 3 meeting, the council set a public hearing for Tuesday, Dec. 7 to hear comments on Ordinance 1248, which would rezone the southeastern portion of the Glencairn Neighborhood to expand the current R-O-1 district. The R-0-1 district is the most restrictive of the three such districts, prohibiting

the issuance of any more rental licenses. Community development analyst Tim Schmitt said a group of residents along the east and south sides of the current district proposed creating a new restriction area, called an overlay district. The homes are located on the south side of Marshall, on Dorothy Lane and on portions of the 600 and 700 blocks of Sunset Lane and Forest Street. However, the requesters did not meet the 50-property minimum threshold for the number of parcels needed to establish a new district.

New E.L. board to study school configuration By DAWN PARKER

EAST LANSING – One incumbent will rejoin the East Lansing School Board, accompanied by one newcomer. Incumbent Donna Rich Kaplowitz earned a new 4-year term on the board in Nov. 2 general election. Kaplowitz was the top votegetter with 5,667 votes cast. The newcomer is Jay Todd, who eked out second place with 3,755 votes, 211 more than challenger James A. Smith. Todd said Wednesday he is excited about the “new



challenge” before him. “I think I will be working with some good people,” he said. “Being on the school board will give me chance to use some skills I have honed over the years for the (benefit of the) community, and I’m looking forward to doing that.” Kaplowitz, Todd and

their colleagues will be actively involved in the ongoing discussions regarding the possible reconfiguration of the district. “The process is in place – let’s see how it plays out,” Todd said. “We have to listen to the community and get a sense of what they’re really hoping for and looking for, and see what’s feasible.” For now, Todd is just looking forward to getting to work. “I’m happy and gratified, and I thank the people who voted for me,” he said. “I hope I live up to their expectations.”

Okemos election

OKEMOS – Voters in the Okemos school district returned two sitting members to the school board and elected one new member. Incumbent Amy Crites was unopposed for a new four-year term on the board. “I’m happy to serve the Okemos community in my position as school board member,” Crites said Wednesday. Newcomer Steve Vagnozzi was also unopposed and will join the seven-member board. Board member Deb Baughman, who was appointed in July to replace Robert



McDonough, defeated Damian Fisher and will serve the two remaining years of McDonough’s term. The board has numerous challenges ahead, including theloomingpossibilityofneed-

ing to make further cuts in the 2011-12 school year while preserving its dwindling fund balance. It’s all Baughman about the money and where it comes from, Crites says. “It’s really a matter of getting our funding source better solidified. The state really has to look and see what its priorities are,” she said.

Open space tax wins by wide margin


MERIDIAN TWP. – One millage request in Meridian Township did pass. A request for a reduced Land Preservation millage got the approval of voters, with 9,813 voting yes to 5,392 voting no, or 65-35. The proposal reduces the amount of the millage from .75 to .33. The millage is extended for an additional 10 years, and is expected to

bring in $3 million to the Land Preservation Fund during the life of the millage. At the beginning of 2010, the millage fund had a balance of $2 million, with $3 million set aside in reserve. Of the reserve balance, $2.4 million is set aside as an endowment. Seventy-five percent of the fund is used to purchase land, with the remaining 25 percent diverted for maintenance. The township has 17 different land preserves amounting to 738.28 acres.

A total of 109.78 acres were donated, and 628.5 acres were purchased for more than $8.4 million using the special tax money. The vote “reflects a commitment on the part of the residents of the township to invest in the township’s future,” noted Land Preservation Board chairman Tom Woiwode. “It also illustrates a commitment to and support of a program they have found very valuable over the last 10 years.”

EAST LANSING – It’s a landmark year for the Women in the Arts Festival. The celebration of regional women artists, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, includes artists, musicians, poets and other creative arts. The volunteer-run organization aims to create space for creative women to showcase their talents. “We created this festival 25 years ago as a way to showcase women artists locally when there weren’t very many places where women could show and sell their work,” festival producer Diane Wilson said.

Local police report

MSU student arrested for making knife threat By DAWN PARKER

November 7, 2010

EAST LANSING – A Michigan State University student is facing charges following a recent assault. East Lansing Police Lt. Bill Mitchell said Jonathan Thomas, 22, of Troy began threatening his roommates with a knife around 9 p.m. Oct.30. When Thomas’s roommates tried to calm him down, Mitchell said Thomas instead became more agitated and grabbed additional knives, Thomas reportedly also locked the only exit door leaving the apartment. However, one of his roommates was able to call police, and when officers arrived Thomas dropped the knives and surrendered without incident. Mitchell said a felonious assault charge was issued against Thomas. At the time of the assault, Thomas’s blood-alcohol level registered a .21, nearly three times the Michigan legal limit for intoxication of .08.

said the unwanted person had been asked to leave several times but would not comply. The man was inside the house when officers arrived, Mitchell said. The man was arrested for unlawful entry and taken to the East Lansing jail. He became resistant and assaultive on arrival, Mitchell said, spitting in an officer’s face before he could be restrained. In addition to the initial charge, Mitchell said the man will likely be charged with disorderly conducthinder/resist/assault. The man’s blood-alcohol content was measured at .17, just over twice the legal limit for drunkenness in Michigan.

Okemos woman hurt

A 52-year-old Okemos woman was hospitalized following a recent pursuit by Meridian Township police. Meridian Township Lt.

Crash investigated

The Meridian Township police officials say they are investigating a one-car crash that occurred after a grand father encouraged his teen-aged granddaughter to drive faster on a gravel road. The crach occurred Monday, Nov. 1, at 4:30 p.m. Meridian Township Police, the Meridian Township Fire Department, and the East Lansing Fire Department responded to a crash on Tihart Road west of Cornell Road. The vehicle, a Kia Rio four door, was traveling east on Tihart Road. The driver was a 15-year-old female resident from Haslett. Her grandfather, a 57-year-old resident from Georgia, encouraged her to drive faster on the gravel road. The man then put his foot on the accelerator. The 15-year-old lost control of the vehicle and it went off the right side of the road and struck a tree. The driver, her grandfather, and another passenger, a 15-year-old female resident of Haslett, were all transported to Sparrow Hospital. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

Rising Star review

Rising Star program Lansing Community Newspapers and the Wharton Center For The Performing Arts are partners in a venture called, “Rising Stars.”

Love you Bobby!

The announcer introduced the band and the crowd clapped wildly and cheered “We love you, Bobby!” The stage lit up, and the audience roared as the band started to play. As the band began,

Rising Star Ariel Rogers

incense was lit on stage, giving a hint of ambience of what it may have been like to see Dylan in the ‘60s. Known for changing up the rhythm and sound of their songs, the band performed in a bluesy, country tone, playing resonator guitars, upright basses, and banjos. Dylan started out playing the organ, then switched to guitar or his renowned harmonica. Whenever he played the harmonica, members of the audience stood up and applauded as loudly as they could. As he started to sing “Stuck Inside Of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again,” it was evident

that Dylan’s once nasally voice had changed, and was mixed with raspy undertones. Despite these small changes, it was still the Bob Dylan who was on stage, the same man who played at the Newport Folk Festival in 1963 and was one of the most prominent American counterculture figures of all time.

Just like a woman

Dylan and His Band played “Just Like A Woman” and “Workingman Blues #2,” which based on the shouts and whistles were some of the fans’ favorites. As the band played, the backdrop on stage had projections of cityscapes and at one point, it was a live video of the band being shown on the screen. The background’s picture often reflected the

‘People of all ages, ranging from preschool all the way up to retirement-home age came out to see The Voice of a Generation.’ mood of the song, making the music even more powerful. In response to the audience’s shouts and ovations, there was an encore in which Dylan played “Like A Rolling Stone,” a song that even the most naïve of Dylan fans know the words to. Nearly the entire audience stood up and were dancing or tapping their toes to the song that changed the rock ‘n roll scene forever. “Like A Rolling Stone” was No. 2 on the US charts for two weeks in 1965, and reached No. 1 on the list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time by Rolling Stone Magazine in 2004.

Dylan is currently touring across America with his band, sometimes performing twice in one day, until the end of November. Dylan is has been touring and playing shows since the early 1960s, making him very accustomed to the daunting tasks of being an American music icon. “A lot of people can’t stand touring, but to me it’s like breathing,” Dylan has said. “I do it because I’m driven to do it.” Ariel Rogers is a Grand Ledge High School student and is editor of the Comets’ Tail student newspaper.

Bob Dylan hit ‘all-generations’ chord


There are many examples of sportsmanship we witness on any given day. Handshakes after a game, players taking a knee when a player is injured and so on. On a recent Thursday night I witnessed one of the best examples I have seen in many years. Williamston hosted Haslett for freshman football game. This was Haslett’s last away game at that level, and the team was winning by several touchdowns. There was less than five minutes to play, and Haslett had the goal line in sight. The players were lined up , and the call from the sidelines is for a special player named Matthew Kindervater to run the ball. The hand off went to Matthew, he rolled toward the goal line and is hit by several Williamston players. Second down and 10. There was another hand off to Matthew. There was a wall of Vikings in front of him trying to make a hole for him, and he gains a couple yards. Third and 8. Now clearly at this point the players and spectators realized that there is something very special about Matthew, and that the Vikings were trying desperately to open up a hole so he could score. Again the hand off to Matthew. Again there was wall of Vikings in front of him, and there were several behind him

helping to plow through the Hornets defense. The Haslett players and fans know how very special it would be for Matthew to score this touchdown, and you could feel the energy as everyone stood to watch and cheer him on knowing that this was it. Time out Williamston Hornets. Both teams go to the sidelines and talk strategy. The Hornets were unsure what is going on, but they realized that clearly Haslett was working hard to get Matthew into the end zone with the football. The teams took the field. The ref walked over to the Haslett huddle and said something to the Haslett quarterback. A brief moment of confusion then back to the huddle. Both teams lined up. The hand off was once again to Mathew. The wall in front of himmade a hole. The players behind him pushed him forward. He made it through. Touchdown Haslett. Haslett’s players surrounded Matthew and celebrated. Haslett’s sideline and spectators went wild. It was a truly special moment in time for the Haslett community. Thank you Williamston freshman and coaches for being the good sports that you are and giving us this moment in time. A moment that will not be forgotten and will always be treasured.

In addition, a record total of 50 volunteers helped things run smoothly. Left: Calvin Bosanic, 5, of East Lansing tried his hand at “ring around the witch’s hat” in the games area. Right: Dot’s nice! “Spotted dog” Quincy Vicaire, 3, of Lansing had trouble deciding which pumpkin she preferred.

E.L. Art Festival will put focus on first-time artists EAST LANSING — The East Lansing Art Festival has modified it’s nationally recognized Emerging Artist Program to include a more diverse population of artists who have never before exhibited their artwork in a juried art festival or show. Prior to this change, the Emerging Artist Program was designed solely for current college students or recent art program graduates. The eligibility has been modified by the festival board in order to expand the program to a wider base of up-and-coming artists who have yet to receive exposure in a juried show.

“The festival board recognized that emerging artists aren’t necessarily all students or recent graduates,” said festival coordinator Corinn VanWyck. “Artists have diverse backgrounds and some wait until much later in their lives to truly pursue their artistic passion. We want our Emerging Artist Program to provide opportunities to these types of artists, in addition to students.” The festival’s Emerging Artist Program was recently nationally recognized in a feature spread entitled “Where are the new artists?” in the November edition of

Sunshine Artist magazine. The program was recognized as one of a handful of successful programs across the country, joined by the St. Louis Art Fair in Missouri and the Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival in Texas. The art festival is currently accepting artist and emerging artist applications for its 2011 event, taking place May 21-22 in downtown East Lansing. There will be a discounted application fee of $30 until Nov. 30, for early applicants. The application fee increases to $40 in December.

E. L. grid era ends After a tremendous year filled with both emotional highs and lows, East Lansing’s football team had its season come to an end on Oct. 29 with a 27-23 loss to DeWitt in a Division 3 district opener. Senior quarterback Tyler Tucker passed for 157 yards and three touchdowns, while Spencer Treadwell added 121 yards on the ground. The loss marks the end of an era for a very talented senior class.

“These players have all come a long way and grew, and had an outstanding year. They all played well together, and it’s just good to be around people like that.” — East Lansing coach Bill Feraco

finals meet this weekend

Okemos runners’ hopes high


OKEMOS — Heading into this year’s cross country season, Okemos coach John Quiring had no idea what kind of team the Chieftains would field this fall. However, slowly but surely, the team began to form and Quiring’s expectations began to rise. Senior Carson Schaefer joined the team after spending last fall on the Chieftains’ football team. Then, senior Jordan Johnson jumped on board after transferring from Lansing Eastern High. “I began to tell people that with the addition of those two guys, we could very well be a top-10 team in the state,” Quiring said. “We had the talent to do some big things this year.” That talent was on display this past weekend as

22nd at last year’s state championships and hope to improve in this year’s Division 1 state finals, which was scheduled to take placed on Saturday. “We know from last year, that there are a lot of good teams around the state…but we have a lot better team then we did last year,” Quiring said. “Our goals are set pretty high, but I know that this group is really going to as all six of the Chieftains’ go for it.” runners placed in the top-20. Schafer led the way, placing seventh overall with a time of 16:57. Seph Dabrowski, Tyler Fisk and Jordan Johnson followed, placing 14-16th place respectively. “Seph (Dabrowski) really stood out, he ran a great regional,” Quiring said. “At the half mile point, he was in second place and really went out very strong.” The Chieftains placed

The Chieftains finished with a final team-total of 70 points, 15 fewer than runnerup Caledonia. “This is a really tight group of guys, who all ran a great race for us,” Quiring said. “We don’t have one huge leader, so we rely on a group of guys to share the lead.” That became more then evident in the regional race,

hanksgiving may be my favorite holiday. I think it’s the pie. I discovered the power of pie at an early age, when I saw it bring and keep people around our kitchen table, serving great family stories right along with it. I see pie bring our library staff together to mark any occasion, from birthdays to successful millage campaigns to a simple celebration of teamwork. And I consider it a privilege to work for an institution as American as apple pie. So check out these titles and immerse yourself in the power of pie!

Pie’ books

“The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (Flavia de Luce Series No. 1)” by Alan Bradley The time is 1950, the setting is Buckshaw, the decaying but beloved de Luce family mansion. The star of the show is 11-year-old Flavia, the youngest de Luce daughter who has an obsession for chemistry and all things poison. When the brilliantly wicked but lovable

Instead of flying into her new life, she decided to turn the move to New York into a slow culinary quest by driving America’s “pieways.” She and a friend made a leisurely trip across the country seeking the answer to their burning question: does pie still have a place in our fast-food nation?

ters and recipes is the result. If you love pie, you’ll love everything this title has to offer! “Pie in the Sky DVD Mystery Series” published by Acorn Media This is a gentle, funny British mystery series produced back in the 1990’s but thoroughly enjoyable today. Richard Griffiths, who you may recognize as the unappealing Uncle Vernon Dursley of Harry Potter fame, is the star. Here he plays a reluctant but capable detective on the cusp of retirement who would like to devote all of his time to his passion in life — his restaurant Pie in the Sky, named for their infamous steak and kidney pies. The charm lies in the cast of quirky characters ranging from Henry’s incompetent assistant chief constable to the repentant ex-cons who staff the restaurant kitchen. An added bonus — Henry’s impromptu cooking lessons and recipes that are shared along the way. Happy Thanksgiving! Eat pie! Ann Chapman is the head librarian at the Haslett Library.
