Housing rehab Friends remember Taylor meeting April 11 McCormick Park By KEN PALMER | WILLIAMSTON — Officials will discuss details of a new housing rehabilitation program at 6 p.m. Monday, April 11 at the Williamston Community Center. Under the Targeted Neighborhood Program, homeowners in an area south of Grand River Ave. and north of the railroad tracks near the downtown business district would be eligible for special loans to rehabilitate their house and make it more energy-efficient. A total of $258,000 is available for the program in Williamston and Mason, with about half designated for each community, said Michael Gradis, a community development consultant for the city. About 190 homes lie within Williamston’s target area, which includes some of the city’s oldest housing stock, Gradis said. Homeowners could qualify for a deferred, nointerest loan of up to $35,000, half of which would be forgiven if they remain in their home for at least 10 years, he said. The balance would be due when they move out of the home or the title is transferred. The program is aimed at improving energy efficiency and preserving long-term housing in walkable areas, Gradis said. It should be especially attractive to those who plan to stay in their homes for some time, he said. Ingham County received the funding through the Michigan Housing Development Authority and will administer the program jointly with the two communities. Bruce Johnston, director of the Ingham County Housing Commission, will speak at the media event on Monday and answer questions, Gradis said. Some basic facts: • To qualify, homeowners must have a household income of no more than 80 percent of the area median. Qualifying homeowners with a household income above 60 percent of the area median must pay a 25-percent match. • Homeowners who qualify for a loan must get an inspection and an energy-efficiency audit. Any needed code improvements would have to be performed first. • Homeowners would have to cover the extra cost if the work exceeds the amount of their loan. Financing help may be available through Independent Bank. • All property taxes and homeowners insurance must be paid up. Homeowners in the targeted area were notified by mail of Monday’s meeting, which will be held in Room 22 of the Community Center on School St., Gradis said.

memorial possible By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — Like many teenagers, Taylor Smith had her problems. But no one had a clue how bad things had become for the 15-year-old Williamston native until she shot herself to death Feb. 24 at her mother’s home near Howell. Just weeks earlier, she had transferred to Howell schools to find a new start. “I never, ever thought Taylor would have done this,” said her father, Kirt Smith. “There were no warning signs. She wasn’t depressed. I look through pictures, and she was always happy and smiling.” Longtime family friend Calise Pratt agreed. “She never said a word, never,” Pratt said. “That’s the scariest part for everyone. She and I had talked just the day before, and she seemed fine.” Now, Pratt and other friends, including former classmates of Smith, are raising money to create a memorial to the fallen teen and raise awareness about the problems of bullying and teen suicide. On March 28, the City Council approved Pratt’s request to place a memorial plaque on the gazebo in McCormick Park and directed staff to work with her group on a plan for the memorial. The group wants to build a gazebo called “The Healing Building,” plant a weeping cherry tree and dedicate a park bench to Smith in the area of the new fishing dock. Fishing was one of Taylor’s favorite hobbies, friends and family said. Pratt said the memorial could serve as a gathering place for Smith’s friends, who have no grave site to visit be-

The work would be done entirely with donated time and money, she said. “We need people to step up and offer their help,” Pratt said. Smith, who turned 15 just two weeks before she died, had bright red hair and green-and-hazel eyes. Friends said she loved to go fishing and camping and play soccer. She also had a good singing voice.

‘Always laughing’

and she was a little bit heavier-set,” Pratt said. “A majority of the issue was her height and weight.” Pratt said she isn’t assigning blame for what happened to Taylor. But schools need to do more to address the problems of bullying and teen suicide, she said. Students receive less than a week of instruction on those two topics during their four years in high school, she said. Williamston schools Superintendent Narda Murphy declined to discuss specifics about Taylor. She said schools deal with bullying and suicide in ways that go beyond the basic health class curriculum in high school, including counseling. That doesn’t mean there isn’t room for more information about bullying, Murphy said. “I would say the area that has caused the most concern for schools is cyber-bullying,” she said. “It’s very difficult to deal with because we have so little control over it.”

“She was really bubbly, always laughing,” said Collette Pratt, Calise Pratt’s daughter and a lifelong friend of Smith’s. “She was so beautiful.” But in ways that mattered to at least some of her peers, Smith was different — different enough that they bullied her from an early age, Calise and Collette Pratt said. “People judged her because of everything,” said Collette Pratt, 17. “She was different. She was her own person. She had her own personality. She didn’t fit the stereotype of what they Reason unclear really liked.” Calise Pratt said Taylor had talked No one knows for sure why Taylor with her about bullying since she was decided to take her own life, and in elementary school. “She was tall, with bright red hair, See Taylor/page 4

Nature group hits milestone

More land wanted

MNA began as a small birding group nearly 60 years ago. Executive Director Jeremy Emmi said

the organization is looking to acquire more, and someday doubling the amount of, protected special natural areas. “We’ve built the capacity of MNA to where we could protect more land each year, and we’re still headed in that direction,” Emmi said. “It takes a lot of resources, a lot of time, and a lot of hard work, but through our incredible volunteers and donors, we’ve spent the time, done the work and raised millions of dollars to protect land in Michigan.” Emmi elaborated on why MNA continues to protect land throughout the state. “We do it for nature itself, and we do it for humanitarian reasons so that future generations can enjoy it,” Emmi said. “We do it because it helps protect species and habitat diversity and promotes all of the other functions that

natural habitat provides. “Most of all, we do it for Michigan.” Established in 1952, MNA is a non-profit conservation organization committed to the protection and maintenance of special natural areas throughout the state. Through stewardship, MNA works to protect the rare and endangered plants and animals that reside in these areas, and promote a program of natural history and conservation education. For nearly 60 years, MNA has worked to acquire and protect more than 10,000 acres from the northern tip of the Upper Peninsula to the Indiana/ Ohio border. For more information on MNA and current initiatives, visit .

Williamston Enterprise

WILLIAMSTON –– The Michigan Nature Association (MNA) announced the protection of its 10,000th acre. Currently, MNA, based in Williamston, protects land in 58 of Michigan’s 83 counties. From its first property in 1960, MNA has grown to protect land, habitat and species at 170 nature sanctuaries throughout both peninsulas. Boosting MNA’s land ownership into the 10,000-acre range is the recent acquisition of an easement on a 600-acre property in Oscoda County, resulting from a partnership among the J.A. Woollam Foundation, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and MNA.


First Friday umbrellas

Rain is no real threat as a crowd of around 60 shows up at McCormick Park with umbrellas on April 1. They were there for the second annual Umbrella Mosaic, the Williamston Area Chamber of Commerce’s Discover First Friday promotion for April. Participants gathered along the Red Cedar River shore to display their umbrellas, some of which were customized for the event.

Bullying, suicide workshop set for April 28 By KEN PALMER

After losing his son, Matt, to suicide in 2002, Kevin Epling has advocated for anti-bullying legislation and worked to bring the problems of bullying and teen

suicide into the open. “We have to open the environment so that we’re able to talk about it,” said Epling. “That’s what’s going to save lives.” Epling will present “Bullying and Suicide: A lesson in Acceptance and Prevention” at

6:30 p.m. April 28 at Peckham Inc., 3510 Capital City Blvd., Lansing. The free program is sponsored by the Capital Area Health Alliance Mental Health Partnership Council, Peckham Inc., and the Community Mental HealthAuthority of Clinton,

Eaton and Ingham. The prevalence of bullying is difficult to track statistically. But Epling said there were 35 confirmed cases of bullycide in the U.S. last year. Fifteen cases have been recorded already this year, he said.

many factors might have contributed, Kirt Smith said. Taylor moved to the Fowlerville area with her mother, Deann, and started classes in Howell after the Christmas break, he said. She was facing expulsion in Howell because of legal problems involving drugs, even though she always tested clean in drug screens, he said. At first, the fresh start in Howell seemed to help, and Taylor was making friends, Collette Pratt said. But rumors started circulating, and classmates began hearing “stuff about her,” she said. Even so, no one knew Taylor was contemplating suicide, she and others said. “We will never know why,” Kirt Smith. “It’s just a

combination of little things. Teenagers live in the now. They don’t think about the future.” Smith said his focus is to help teens realize that help is available if they are contemplating suicide. The memorial plaque in the park will include the suicide prevention hotline number, he said. Former classmates of Taylor have stepped up to create a memorial and raise awareness about bullying and teen suicide, Calise Pratt said. Students held a “Taylor’s Day” at the school, wearing T-shirts donated by a parent and customized by them, she said. About two dozen Williamston students took part in a walk for Taylor at Howell High School last week. And friends are organizing a summit on

bullying and teen suicide in Williamston. The event may include a 5K walk or run and the participation of local police departments, Calise Pratt said.

WILLIAMSTON — The Williamston school district announced its Safe Routes to School (SR2S) grant for $199,500. SR2S is an international movement to make it safe, convenient and fun for students to walk, bike and roll to and from school. When routes are safe, it provides students (and their families) with an opportunity to be physically active and develop life-long healthy behaviors. The district is hosting a Parent and Community SR2S Kick-Off event from 7-8:30

p.m. April 20 at the McGoff Auditorium. The event will include a virtual walking tour of the “new routes,” principal presentations on drop-off and pick-up areas, SR2S incentives for all attendees and educational materials.

Luke Feltz of Williamston, a junior at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania, is spending the spring 2011 semester studying in Denmark as part of the school’s off-campus study-abroad programs. The programs supplement and enhance regular on-campus courses


ready begun and will include new bike racks, a sidewalk down Mitchell Road, new lighted crosswalks around the schools, improved dropoff and pick-up areas and a paved path and sidewalk by the elementary schools. Construction will be complete by Sept. 1. The education phase has also begun. Teachers at Discovery and Explorer elementary schools and Williamston Middle School are educating students on bike and pedestrian safety. As part of that education, the schools will each host a pedestrian safety assembly through Wayne State University on April 27.

Grocery thief sought

Domestic assault

A city resident was taken to the Ingham County Jail after allegedly assaulting his wife and smashing a car window on March 28. The victim said her husband, 32, hit her with the back of his hand and verbally abused her during an argument in their home on Foxborough Drive, police reports said. She eventually locked herself and their child in a vehicle in the garage, she said. The suspect tried to stop her from leaving by blocking her vehicle in the garage and smashed out the driver’s side window with a hammer, said the woman, who slipped out through the passenger side door, ran across the street and called 911, the reports said. The man was arrested without incident.

A local man was arrested on four open warrants and driving with a suspended license after being stopped by police on March 30. The suspect was turned

punched in the wall of a second-floor bathroom, police reports said. An officer who had reported seeing juveniles running from the building made contact with one of them the following day. Ultimately, two boys admitted damaging the wall, the reports said.

Possession arrest

A man was arrested for crack cocaine possession after police responded to a domestic call on April 2. A city officer and an Ingham County Sheriff’s deputy were called to a residence on White Street shortly before 8 a.m. and spoke with a woman who said that the father of her child, who does not have a driver’s license, had taken her new car to buy beer and crack cocaine. The officers recovered 3.8 grams of crack and a makeshift pipe, reports said. The man was taken to the Ingham County Jail,

Watch needed

Today more than ever we need to come together to look out for each other through programs like the Neighborhood Watch to deter criminal activity. We have been very fortunate in our neighborhood as crime has not been a problem, but it is all around us. If we can take steps to be proactive and do all we can to stop it before it starts then our neighborhood can be an example for others to follow. A few signs and a few organizational meetings and very little money can pay huge dividends. As a new resident of Williamston (November 2009), I went to an event to meet the new Chief of Police Bob Young, and officer John Pelong was there to talk about the National Neighborhood Watch Program. I live in a senior development for people 55 and older started in the 1980s. It is well established and full of terrific community-oriented citizens that have looked after one another for years but there is always room for improvement and a chance to learn. Through the watch program there are tools provided that can aid anyone in the event of property loss. On a Personal Property Identification Record you can list serial numbers for positive identification later and a

The Home Security Checklist can be used as a guide or checklist to make your home more secure. On the Watch Observation Notes you have a checklist to write down unusual suspicious activities with time, date and other important information to be reported to the authorities. The idea is to add eyes and ears to the local police and call them when you see or witness something out of the ordinary. The Williamston Police Department has been so helpful that I cannot thank

them enough. Anyone interested in looking into starting a watch program can contact police. I would be glad to offer my help by contacting me by email at The best thing about the program is that it allows you an opportunity to get to know your neighbors better. I look at it this way. It can’t hurt and sure could be a big help. I would like to see the whole city get involved so that we can create a reputation as a great community to live but not a good place to try to commit a crime. Kent Hall Williamston

Raffle winners announced Hasemann. “I want to thank the community for their outstanding support and investment in education here in Williamston. “As we all know, there is a tough year ahead in terms of budget support from the state, so this generous support is so appreciated. I also want to thank the trustees and volunteers for their tireless work in selling tickets. They work very hard on behalf of the kids.” The foundation’s next major fundraiser is the annual WSF Golf Outing to be held at the Brookshire Inn

and Golf Club on Saturday, May 7. Golf chairman John Smith said, “We are really hoping to see all the local golfers come out for a great day of golf. The format is a scramble — so all levels of golfers can have fun. If you’re not a golfer, then sponsor a hole, or donate a prize for the after-Scramble awards reception.” For more information, call (517) 655-7513 or e-mail — From the Williamston Schools Foundation

City Council planning cost-recovery measure By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — The City Council is expected to pass a measure that would make it easier for the city to recover costs of responding to hazardous waste spills, bomb threats and other types of emergencies. Under a draft ordinance set for adoption on April

11, the city manager could choose to assess costs against parties responsible for causing an emergency or a repeated misuse of city services, such as false alarms. City officials discussed updating the cost-recovery ordinance a couple of years ago at the request of Ingham County Sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Ott, who manages the hazardous materials team, City

Manager Tim Allard said. The issue was set aside until recently, when Allard suggested the Council revisit the idea. Ott renewed his request last month, telling council members that communities need to be prepared for emergencies like the Adams Plating fire in December. The massive blaze in Lansing caused residents to be

evacuated and left behind a pool of toxic chemicals that needed to be cleaned up. The city’s current cost-recovery ordinance is inadequate, Allard said. The new ordinance would allow the city to recover costs on behalf of N.I.E.S.A. and county agencies such as the hazmat team. The City Council passed a first reading of the proposed

ordinance in its meeting two weeks ago. But council members asked that it be changed to require that appeal procedures be printed on invoices sent out by the city. Under the draft ordinance, anyone who is billed for costs by the city could request a meeting with the city manager within seven days. They could then appeal the city manager’s deci-

sion to the Council. Some Michigan communities have used cost-recovery ordinances to assess “crash taxes” on non-residents involved in traffic accidents. Allard said Williamston has no intention of doing that. “There has to be some kind of pattern of misuse of city services,” he said.

St. Mary helps Japan By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — As Japan struggles to overcome one of the largest natural disasters in its history, some third-graders at St. Mary Elementary School are doing their part to help. “We had been reading a book and looking at Japan when this tragedy happened,” teacher Laurie Fulcher said. “We were praying for the people in Japan all the time, but the kids wanted to do something even more.” So the students organized a bake sale, bringing in goodies they make at home with their parents and selling them at the school. They’ve taken turns manning a rolling cart filled with brownies, cookies, cupcakes and other treats. They also are organizing a can drive to help the relief effort in Japan. The proceeds likely will go to the Red Cross or Salvation Army for the relief effort, Fulcher said.

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami devastated parts of northern Japan and damaged a nuclear power generating facility at Fukashima. Fulcher said her students are studying countries and learning where their ancestors came from. When the tragedy happened, they were reading a book about Japan, she said. “One of the students said we need to do more for them to help them rebuild,” Fulcher said. “The kids said, ‘let’s send some money and some wood over there.’ And some wanted to send toys for children who might not have toys. “I think it’s just so nice that they would want to do something like this.”

Right: St. Mary Elementary School students Tucker Thompson, 8, (right), and Noah Palmatier, 9, with some of the baked goods students are selling to help Japan’s recovery efforts.

Letter to the editor Peggy Murphy of Williamton would never describe herself as a hero, but that is what she has been to more than 80 Lansing area children who grew up as part of her “dance family.” Twenty years ago this past January, she and another Irish mom decided they wanted their kids exposed to the joy of Irish dance and music, so they began to meet in the basement of a local school to teach their youngsters the jig and the reel. Within a few years, the group heard that John Heinzman, a championship dancer from the Detroit area was heading up a new school of Irish dance headquartered in Taylor. Heinzman was impressed with their progress, and promised he would open a satellite school in midMichigan if at least 10 kids were willing to participate.

The Heinzman School of Irish Dance, recently renamed the Ardan Academy, continues to operate out of its satellite dance studio in Holt. The Irish Dance Company of Lansing, an allchildren performing group headed by Murphy, continues to flourish with 16 young dancers performing in over 20 dance performances this past March alone. Over the years, the Irish Dance Company changed as the children who had begun as young as 5 learned new steps in the Heinzman school and brought their experience and expertise to the weekly practice sessions. As the children matured, Murphy encouraged the older students to take over the selection of music and dance steps under her guidance. One of the best qualities about Murphy is that she emphasizes the love of dance over the perfect

dance step in each of her dancers. She also makes sure the dancers know that each performance is equally important. Her extensive knowledge of Celtic history is another trait she passes on to her dancers. Many residents in the greater Lansing area have made it an annual tradition to attend at least one of the dance company’s public performances, including the River Walk Theater during Silver Bells, the Grand Ledge Opera House during the St. Patrick’s Day weekend celebration or the Lake Lansing Band Shell in August. The dance company also enjoys an annual weekend in Gaylord during which they dance for the school children, nursing home residents and the party goers at the K of C Hall’s annual Irish Bash. This year Murphy announced that she would step back from her role as

Local dancing is better off through Williamston resident Peggy Murphy. the weekly overseer of the dance company. A young woman who grew up in the company will help the dancers at their weekly practices while Murphy

continues to manage the calendar of performances. At this bittersweet time for Murphy and her dancers, we want her to know how much she is loved

and appreciated. The Lansing community is a better place because of the willingness of this Irish mom to get involved. Beth Wojan
