Taylor Smith remembered Tree, plaque placed in late teen’s memory



Family friends Calise Pratt and Dan Norton show off the plaque dedicated to Taylor Smith in a May 14 ceremony at McCormick Park. Behind the plaque is a weeping cherry tree planted in her memory. The 15-year-old Williamston girl loved weeping cherry trees. KEN PALMER/LCN memory was installed on a pedestal near the river. A weeping cherry tree — a favorite of Taylor’s — was planted a few yards away. Donations covered the cost of the plaque, which includes the national Suicide Prevention Hotline number, as well as the park facilities fee. Donations came from many sources. Students at Williamston Middle School, for example, raised about $1,000 through a free-throw toss last month. Friends and family donated $1,000 to the Howell Conference and Nature Center, which will be used to send two children to camp to rehabilitate two injured animals, said Calise Pratt, a family friend who

helped organize the event. “We appreciate all of the volunteers, especially the Six-String Place and the Howell Nature Center and all of the police officers who volunteered their personal time,” Pratt said. “All in all, I think it went wonderfully. “It was very emotional for (Taylor’s parents) Kirt and Deann. But they were just in awe with all the people who helped.”

Township looks at medical pot Ken Palmer

Ken Palmer n estimated 150 people gathered in McCormick Park on May 14 to pay tribute to a fallen area teenager and to see that her legacy won’t be forgotten. Friends of Taylor Smith, many of them wearing customized purple T-shirts, took part in a fundraising walk and rallied against bullying in a four-hour event that also included the dedication of a plaque and a tree planted in her memory. “I’m glad that we’re doing this,” said Rachael VandenBroek, 21, who described herself as Taylor’s best friend. “Something needs to be done to stop bullying.” The 15-year-old Taylor, who transferred from the Williamston schools to the Howell district last December, took her own life on Feb. 24. Friends said she had been targeted by bullies for years. “She always felt like she never fit in, that she never had any friends,” VandenBroek said. Kevin Epling, an author and activist who has rallied for laws requiring more anti-bullying measures in schools, made a brief speech, even though his basement had flooded during a rainstorm the night before.

Township leaders are considering two approaches to regulating medical marijuana businesses under the state’s Medical Marijuana Act. In a May 17 public hearing, the Planning Commission unveiled draft rules that would allow registered caregivers to operate either from their homes or from storefronts along the Grand River Avenue corridor. Commissioners hoped to determine the residents’ preferred strategy, but only one person commented at the hearing. The Commission plans to discuss the draft rules at its June meeting and will send its recommendations to the Township Board. One set of rules would allow registered caregivers to grow medical marijuana and serve patients as a home-occupation or homebased business, provided they live in the home and are located at least 1,000 feet from a drug-free zone, such as a school or church. Only one caregiver could operate from a parcel, and marijuana could not be used on the premises unless the caregiver is a patient. The second set of draft rules would allow caregivers to operate as a special

land use in the B-1, B-2 and I-1 zoning districts, under many of the same restrictions as the first option. A number of residents spoke against the residential option in a public hearing last year, township officials said. But the only person who spoke in last week’s meeting said she prefers to keep medical marijuana business activity out of commercial districts. Commissioners postponed a decision until next month’s meeting, partly because four members were absent. Township officials said they want to adopt a set of rules before the township’s moratorium on medical marijuana businesses expires in August. Local communities have taken vastly different approaches to regulating medical marijuana businesses since state voters passed the Medical Marijuana Act in 2008. Some have enacted an outright ban on such operations while others have done nothing. The city of Williamston is considering a proposed ordinance that would restrict caregiver operations to three industrialzone areas. But the draft ordinance is on hold while a committee reviews developments regarding the issue.

Car-pole crash knocks out police power Ken Palmer

WILLIAMSTON — A driver whose car hit a utility pole on May 12, knocking out power to the city police department, told police that he fell asleep at the wheel. The 29-year-old Williamston man was cited for careless driving after the early morning crash on W. Grand River Ave., directly in front of the police station. The crash affected two utility poles and several utility lines. The police department was without power for part of the day, and phone service and Internet access also were affected. The driver told police he had fallen asleep and woke up just before hitting the pole. He was despondent over recent events in his life but denied he was trying to kill himself. He was taken to Sparrow Hospital for an evaluation, police said.

Shoplifter sought Prosecutorswerereviewing video evidence showing a woman walking out of a local market with about $160 worth of stolen merchandise. The theft occurred April 26 at D&W Market but went undiscovered for about two weeks, after an inventory check spurred employees to view security video, police reports said. After receiving the complaint on May 14, city police tried to locate the suspect - a 34-year-old Lansing woman, but discovered she had moved from her last known address, the reports said. The case was sent to the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office.

WILLIAMSTON — A pastel work by a sixthgrader at Williamston School took a top award at the recent Susan Lorenz Memorial Art Show, presented by Williamston Community Schools. The event was created in honor of Lorenz, a middle school student who passed away more than 28 year ago. To commemorate her life, her family coordinated with the school system to put on the show and offer prizes for the participating students. One $150 prize is selected by a panel of jurors. All Williamston residents can participate in the show, but only students enrolled in preschool through 12th grade are eligible for competition prizes.

This year, the jurors were Dianne Wolter, Sue Long, and Leslie Donaldson, who selected the 2011 Purchase Award winner, a pastel work by Hailee Null, a sixth-grade student at Williamston Middle School. Hailee’s work will be hung, as part of the Susan Lorenz collection, in one of the district’s buildings as inspiration to the students and staff of the community schools. For the 2011 year, there were 12 honorable mention awards: Emma Agnew, Ami Bartlett, Chyenne Berrien, Anna Bowling, Benjamin Eyke, Natalie Heilman, Megan Lawson, Hunter Lyle, Ellen Mamula, Ethan Martin, Kaitlyn Nix and Austin Syrek.

Kids help Williamston Food Bank

WILLIAMSTON — The Williamston Food Bank recently received an unexpected donation: several tubs of nonperishable food items brought in by the family of 8-year-old Dani Vincent. Dani, a Williamston elementary school student, collected the food by asking her friends to bring an item of food to her birthday party instead of

a gift. Her parents, Mike and Sarah Vincent, said Dani is a “generous little girl” who wanted to help needy families. Recently, 9-year-old Hailey Riffle asked her birthday guests to bring a food item to her party instead of a gift. After her 7 year-old Kaitlyn Stanford’s birthday party, her parents, Rob and Deb Stanford, helped


Kaitlyn deliver the ems to the Food Bank. Williamston youngster Isabel Szymecko has celebrated her birthday by collecting food items instead of gifts for three years in a row. “What these girls are doing is remarkable,” said Danny Hulbert, co-director of the Williamston Food Bank. — From the Williamston Food Bank

WILLIAMSTON — The defending CAAC Cup champion DeWitt girls soccer team showed it won’t give up its title easily with a pulsating 2-1 non-league win over Williamston on May 12. Natalie Knauf and Stephanie Twait scored for the Panthers (12-3), who had to rally after the Hornets scored less than two minutes into the game. “This was big,” DeWitt coach Jamal Mubarakeh said. “Just before the CAAC Cup, it’s good for our kids to get a win like this over the best competition we’ve had so far.” Williamston (11-4-1) scored 1:59 into the game, when the Hornets stole the ball at the top of the DeWitt box and pushed it out wide See SOCCER, Page 10

Every day is an opportunity to show arthritis who’s boss. Living with arthritis pain? Time to show it who’s boss. Studies show that moderate physical activity — the kind that gets your heart rate up and keeps it up like walking, biking, or swimming — can actually reduce pain and stiffness, and improve your mood. But it’s more than just keeping busy, you need to get up and get active at least 5 days a week for 30 minutes each day. You can even do it for 10 minutes, 3 times a day. In just 4 to 6 weeks you’ll notice a difference. Get physically active and show arthritis who’s in charge.

Park in the City Parking Lot behind the pharmacy.

You can enter the pharmacy thru our new rear Pharmacy Plus entrance or thru the rear entrance of the True Value Hardware.

to Courtney Wright on the right wing. Wright’s cross got through Panther sophomore keeper Lauren Early’s hands and dropped for Adrienne Watts, who tapped it into the empty net to give her team a dream start. Early would more than make up for her error, however, starting just four minutes later when Williamston’s Lynnae Prevo was sent in clean on goal over the top. Early raced off her line and snuffed out the chance. Erica Goodenough set up DeWitt’s first goal, turning away from a Hornet defender in the box and finding Knauf open. Knauf’s

right-footer gave Williamston goalie Caitlyn Clem no chance into the upper corner and tied the game with 19:43 left in the first half. DeWitt nearly doubled its lead with 14 minutes left in the half, when a free kick by Emmalee Skorich from just outside the left-wing corner of the Hornet area forced Clem to make a fingertip save and turn it over the bar to keep the score tied at the break. Williamston started strong in the second half, creating two golden chances in the first four minutes. First, Watts got behind the DeWitt defense and in clean on Early, who made a fine save at the near post. The rebound came out to Abby Punch at the penalty spot, but her shot went right back at Early, who again made the save. Watts created the next Hornet opportunity by chasing down a loose ball in the right-wing corner. Her cross to a wide-

open Prevo at the far post was turned wide. Williamston would live to regret the two missed chances. DeWitt scored the winning goal with 30:53 left in the second half, when Carley Rhiness, who had marked Panther striker Addy Schaar extremely well for the entire game, lost her footing, allowing Schaar some space on the left wing. Twait blasted Schaar’s cross with a perfect half-volley from about 15 yards out into the upper corner of the net to make the score 2-1. Williamston’s last good chance to tie the game came with 4:20 left, when Watts won the ball to the right of the Panther box and sent in a cross to Prevo, who raced Early to the ball, but the first-year varsity keeper managed to force the shot to roll

inches wide and preserve the win. Williamston coach Jim Flore said that the loss was just a bump in the road on the way to the postseason. “We had a lot of opportunities, and we just missed them,” Flore said. “It was a great high school soccer game. DeWitt won it, but I don’t feel too bad about it, because I think we might have another chance to get them in the CAAC (Cup).” Mubarakeh liked that he won the game without his two main scorers, Schaar and Goodenough, getting on the score sheet. “We never let down, we kept our cool and composure, and a lot of kids stepped up,” he said. “We settled down and made tic-tac short passes, and when we do that, we’re on top of our game.”

Timely Tips for Hiring Remodelers Red Flags For Identifying the Unprofessional Remodeler Doesn’t have a license or insurance. All remodelers should be able to demonstrate evidence of both. Doesn’t write contracts. Without a clear written plan, it’s difficult to know what work you are both agreeing to complete. Expectations should be agreed to in writing. Requires payment in full prior to starting the job. It’s reasonable for your contractor to ask for payment up front to purchase materials for your job. Shady contractors demand full payment and may leave with the money. Vastly underbids other contractors. If a bid is way lower than everyone else’s it may indicate inexperience or a method of cutting costs that severely affects quality. Cannot provide references. Professional remodelers will always be able to provide the names and phone numbers of past customers. How to Evaluate A Home Remodeler’s References


Before you sign a contract with a home remodeler, ask them to share with you the names and phone numbers of customers they have worked with in the past.

NATIONWIDE COMPANY IN BRIGHTON THIS WEEK PAYING CASH FOR GOLD, SILVER AND COINS. By David Morgan STAFF WRITER Been following the gold and silver market lately? Well if you have a jewelry box, a lock box full of gold or a coffee can full of old coins, you should be, according to Ohio Valley Refinery spokesperson John Miller. “The gold and silver markets have not been this strong for over 30 years” said Miller. Typically when the U.S. dollar is weak and the economy is flat, gold and silver markets soar. “That’s good news if you are sitting on a few gold necklaces or an old class ring” says Miller. Starting Tuesday at 9am and every day this week through Saturday, the Ohio Valley Refinery is setting up a satellite refinery right here in Brighton at the Holiday Inn Expres. During their 5 day stay, anyone can bring gold, silver or platinum items and turn them in for immediate payment, explains John Miller. “Just about everybody has some amount of gold or silver just lying around collecting dust and this week anybody can sell theirs direct to our refinery. Typically selling direct to a refinery is reserved for larger wholesale customers like jewelry stores, pawn shops and laboratories” says Miller. “We are changing how business is done,” he explains “we want to do business with everybody so we took our business to the streets”. “Our teams visit various cities around the country hosting 5 day events and allowing the general public to take advantage of our services. “The turnout has been overwhelming” says Miller. “Usually each day is busier than the previous day. It seems once people come to us and sell something, they are so amazed what an old ring or gold coin is worth, they go home and start digging around for more and telling relatives, friends and neighbors. It’s like a feeding frenzy by the third day. People line up with everything from gold jewelry to sterling silver flatware sets to old coins. I think during this LJ-0100093599

bad economy everybody can use extra money, but most people say they are taking advantage of selling direct to our refinery because of the higher prices we pay”. During this special event, anyone is welcome to bring all types of gold, silver and platinum to the refinery and turn it in for instant payment. The types of items they will accept include all gold jewelry, gold coins, gold ounces, dental gold, old coins made before 1965 including silver dollars, halves, quarters and dimes, anything marked “sterling” including flatware sets, tea pots, silver bars, silver ounces and all industrial precious metals. What should you expect if you go to the event to sell your gold and/or silver? Just gather up all gold, silver and platinum in any form. If you are not sure if it’s gold or silver, bring it in and they will test it for free. When you arrive at the event you will be asked to fill out a simple registration card and will be issued a number. Seating will be available. When your number is called you will be escorted to a table where your items will be examined, tested and sorted. This only takes a few minutes, using their expertise and

Items will be counted and/or weighed. The value of the items will be determined based on up to the minute market prices. Live feeds will be available at the event displaying current market prices of all precious metals. If you choose to sell your items, they will be bagged and tagged and you will be escorted to the cashier to collect your payment. Waiting time to sell your items may range from just a few minutes to 1 hour, so bring something to read. If you are the owner of a jewelry
