Team earns Ford trip By GEOFF KIMMERLY

NOVI — It’s one thing when a team watches another win a state championship and claims, “That should’ve been us.” But after nearly a year of wondering, No. 5 Williamston has earned the chance to prove it. For the past 51 weeks, the Hornets have felt they, and not eventual champion Marshall, deserved to play for last season’s Division 4 state title. Marshall had beaten Williamston in overtime of their 2009 district final. Now a year later the Hornets were to get their title shot at Ford Field. Williamston soundly de-

feated Detroit Crockett 33-13 in the Division 4 state semifinal at Detroit Catholic Central. The Hornets faced No. 8 Grand Rapids Catholic for the state championship. “We just believed in ourselves, and we’re going to states now,” senior quarterback Dylan Schultz said. “We were talking about it since the end of last year. We wanted it for ourselves and we believed that we could do it.” The Hornets (12-1) attempt to finish their dream season with a win on Ford Field Nov. 26, facing Grand Rapids Catholic. Catholic (11-2) beat No. 10 Edwardsburg 46-31 in the other semifinal Nov. 20. Williamston was the high-

est-ranked team left in Division 4 heading into the semifinals, but there was a catch in the division. Crockett also was ranked No. 5 at the end of the regular season, but in Division 3, before ending up in Division 4 for the playoffs. The Rockets (11-2) were led by junior quarterback Brian Blackburn, a 6-foot-5, 212-bomber who has cropped up all over the college recruiting radar. But the arrival of Schultz and his senior classmates had been highly-anticipated in Williamston since they were in middle school. And that 27-26 loss to Marshall last season added a slight See

WILLIAMSTON — With a monkey named “Bananas,” a bird named “Skittles” and a crocodile named “Broccoli,” Kimmee Partridge’s tale has all makings of a good children’s book. And because it was composed in digital format, the characters are able to move around on the page. That was just fine by six-

year-old critic Owen Denk, who read “Bananas and Spaghetti Meatballs” last week at Discovery Elementary School. “It’s awesome,” the firstgrader offered. Kimmee and her 22 classmates in Michele Ellis’s eighth-grade communication technology class composed digital picture books and read them with first-graders at the elementary school on Nov. 23. The exercise was an opportunity to combine literacy with technology in a partnership between the middle school and elementary school, said Ellis, who also teaches English. She asked her students

to compose original stories and create all the artwork themselves — no clip art allowed. “I tried to let them work through the process and figure it all out,” she said “They were super-excited. They had a real audience for their writing.” The students learned what makes a good story, with a complete beginning, middle and end, she said. They also learned how to create artwork digitally and input it into their picture books, she said. “We wanted to show firstgraders good writing skills,’ she said. See

shoulder chip that has surely helped push the Hornets to the brink of history. “These players have been gamers from day one. They were all a little nervous, but it was a good nervous,” Williamston coach Steve Kersten said. “It wasn’t like going in scared. It was like, ‘Hey, we can take it to these guys just like we’ve been doing all year.’ “ But it took a quarter and a half before the Hornets started taking advantage. Williamston missed recovering a Crockett fumble on the opening kickoff, and fumbled the ball away later in the first quarter. The Hornets’ first three drives ended in Crockett territory. And Blackburn hit Ashton Gaines on a 36-yard touchdown pass on fourth down to put the Rockets up 6-0 less than 10 minutes in. But once Williamston started capitalizing, the points came like a flood. A Crockett late hit on a punt return turned into a three-yard Dylan Monette scoring run. And an interception on Crockett’s next possession led to the first of Schultz’s three touchdown passes. The Hornets made it 21-6 after Crockett turned the ball over on downs early in the third quarter. Although the Rockets did pull to within 21-13, Schultz answered with a 76-yard touchdown pass to Monette.

And Williamston added its final touchdown, a run by Corbin Austin, after a Crockett fumble. “We didn’t accomplish our top goal, which was to eliminate the big play. We gave up some plays that we normally hadn’t been giving up,” Crockett coach Roderick Oden said. Blackburn did run for 91 yards and a score on 21 carries, and threw for 123 yards as well. But he was just 3-for-10 throwing for 25 yards and an interception during the second half as Williamston also ramped up its defense. The Hornets finished with six tackles for losses, and senior linebacker Nate Massa had two among his team-high 13 tackles total. Tyler Watters had two interceptions and a fumble recovery. Schultz and Austin had eight tackles. Schultz finished 10 of 19 passing for 249 yards and also completed scoring passes to Austin and senior Nik Jump. For winning their first playoff game ever just a year ago, and now facing a chance to win it all, Williamston’s players remained relatively low-key afterward. The pressure’s still on these seniors to win that first championship. But like those pre-game nerves, it might be a good kind of pressure now. “We just knew we had the tools, and if everybody did their job, we could (make) it,” Schultz said. “We’re just excited. We might not show it, but we really are.”

Letters to the editor Pawn shop honest

Regarding the “stolen bike recovered” article on the front page of the Nov. 21 Enterprise. I own Cash 4 Anything Pawn, and would like to make it very clear that I have never and will never knowingly accept anything stolen from anyone. If you have had anything stolen lately and believe it is at my shop, I invite you to come on in. While you’re here, you’ll find lots of shotguns, bows, tools, instruments, fine jewelry and coins, not to mention a very nice collection of rare fossils, dinosaur bones and Indian relics. Heck, we even have a meteorite in our collection! Among all this neat stuff you’ll also see signs that say, “If it’s stolen we don’t want it” and “A copy of every transaction goes to the police.” If you want to sell something I will have you submit your driver’s license, address, phone number and even require your thumbprint. That way, if you’re selling something that doesn’t belong to you, I can help make sure you go to jail where you belong! Had my pawnshop not been here, that bike most likely would have never been seen again.

This time of year I remember and count my blessings. Our community is truly blessed by countless acts of kindness by those from our city and surrounding communities. I am appreciative and thankful for each of them. Many in our community are making the choice to make a difference. In these choices, they provide benefits to those around them. Our youth have the challenge in today’s society to make good choices. I am proud to see the result of their commitment to overcome distractions around them evident by their success academically and athletically. Our community volunteers are countless. Our community is better because of those individuals who serve without recognition to be a friend to someone in need. I challenge each of us to count our blessings and be a blessing to those around us. Happy Thanksgiving! Michelle Hyne Van Wert Mayor, city of Williamston

It’s officially the holiday season! Behind the idyllic scenes of stockings hanging on the mantel, smiling children building snowmen, and festively decorated homes, there is sometimes a hidden undertone of panic. The holidays can be a very difficult time for many people, especially when the economy is poor. The library is a great resource that can make it easier for you to relax and enjoy your holidays.

Drivers asked to watch for new stop signs By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — City police are asking drivers to watch for new stop signs at the intersection of East Church and Highland streets. The City Council recently agreed to make the intersection a three-way stop to alleviate traffic problems in the mornings and afternoons. Police said traffic was backing up at the intersection, potentially endangering school children and the crossing guard. The new signs were installed on Nov. 23.

Man arrested on warrant

an outstanding warrant after a city officer stopped him for an equipment violation on Nov. 23. The officer stopped the car shortly after midnight after noticing the license plate light was out, police reports said. A check showed the driver had a warrant for failing to appear in court on an assault charge out of Meridian Township, The suspect as turned over to Meridian Township police.

picked up on a warrant for failure to pay child support. City officers went to an address on West Grand River Avenue on Nov. 22 to look for the man but didn’t find him at the apartment, police reports said. While walking back to

their patrol car, they saw a man walking east along the sidewalk who matched a photo of the man they sought. They confirmed his identify and arrested him on the warrant.

Agencies respond to vehicle fire

City police, the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office and the Williamston Fire Department responded when a vehicle caught fire on I-96 on Nov. 22.

E-mail fraud a threat By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — If there remains any doubt, former Mayor Ken Zichi wants everybody to know that he’s not stuck in London and doesn’t need “urgent assistance.” And, by all means, Zichi said, don’t respond if you’ve received an e-mail to that effect from one of his e-mail accounts. Zichi said an e-mail scammer “hijacked” one of his accounts on Nov. 17 and cleaned out all of his contacts. The scammer sent a letter saying he had been

robbed in London and needed help, he said. “I’m writing this with tears in my eyes,” the letter said. “I came down here … for a short vacation. Unfortunately, I was mugged at the park on my way to the hotel where I stayed. All cash, credit card and cell were stolen off me, but luckily for me, I still have my passports with me.” The letter goes on to say that the police were not helping him and that he couldn’t leave the hotel until he settled the bill. Zichi, a Howell-based attorney, said he discovered the problem shortly before 9

a.m. Nov. 17 when someone called to say they’d received the e-mail. He accessed the account and changed the password, he said, even though the scammer was still in the account at the time. Far as he could tell, some type of security program edited out language about where to send money, and no one was victimized, Zichi said. “People need to know not to respond to this kind of stuff,” he said. “Also, change your password if you have any inkling (that something is wrong).” It’s a good idea to use a different password for each account, he said.

WEBBERVILLE — The Webberville Garden Club, a member of the Michigan and National Garden Clubs, Inc., held a meeting Nov. 11, the final meeting of the year with the annual family potluck held at the Webberville Cultural Center. Jet and Terry Johnson hosted the evening. A gift exchange was done after dinner before the business meeting began. The business meeting started with a roll call of what programs everyone would like to have next year. The group reviewed the budget for the 2011 year and it was voted on and approved. A group was formed to go shopping for the Secret Santa family for Christmas. Jeannie Bosworth announced that the cookbooks had sold out and there was talk about possibly running more. Ann Evans and Jet Johnson talked about the fall festival with ideas for next year. Communications were read by Julie Hath. She and Bosworth discussed the Junior Garden Club and the activities they have been doing. November birthday wishes went out to Russell Bloom, Jeannie Bosworth, Andrea Horstman, Jet Johnson and Janet Wilson. The club will rest up for the winter and will restart in February 2011. — From the Webberville Garden Club
