Williamstown chooses Meridian for services Police patrols, 911 service to be provided By KEN PALMER

Firefighters are at the scene of a Dec. 8 house fire on Church near Putnam.

Local fires battled


WILLIAMSTON — Firefighters battled two blazes in the city over a five-day period, including one that damaged a home on West Church Street near Putnam Street. Several area fire departments responded to a blaze at 120 W. Church on the morning of Dec. 8.. No one was home at the time, and no injuries were reported. Assistant Williamston Fire Chief Brad Johnson said city police noticed smoke a the structure around 8 a.m. and summoned firefighters. The cause of the fire was under investigation. The other fire occurred about 12:20 p.m. Dec. 3 on the third floor of a building at 106 W. Grand River Ave., above the

Dollar Times store. A woman and a young child were treated for smoke inhalation, but no other injuries were reported. The flames were contained to a hallway, and the cause remained under investigation.

Shed targeted twice

City police and the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Admiral station on West Grand River Avenue about midnight Dec. 6 after an alarm sounded at a storage shed behind the building. Tracks in the snow indicated that two males were involved and that someone tried to force open the shed door, police reports said. The suspects ran See

WILLIAMSTOWN TWP. —The township plans to hire the Meridian Township Police Department to provide police patrols and 911 service to the township. The Township Board on Tuesday voted 6-1 to accept the recommendation of a committee that screened bids from three area police agencies and two individuals. Meridian offered to provide 80 hours of patrol per week, along with 24-hour 911 service, for $170,000 a year. Williamstown could buy additional patrol time at $45 per hour, township officials said. The Ingham County Sheriff’s Office and the city of Mason also submitted bids. Meridian was the low bidder, although money was not the only consideration, township officials said. “It wasn’t just price, alone,” Supervisor Mickey Martin said. “Proximity was a big factor. Meridian borders our township on the west, and the response time should be the shortest.” On the downside, Meridian has never contracted with another government unit for

police protection, she said. The Meridian Township force has 39 sworn officers. Police Chief Dave Hull said he didn’t know if the twonship will add officers because of the Williamstown contract. Representatives from the two units will negotiate a contract that must be approved by both township boards, he said Williamstown Township officials plan to pay for police service with money from a special assessment. On Nov. 2, township voters passed a ballot proposal asking if they wanted to pay for police protection. Voters in 12 other rural townships in the county rejected similar ballot questions, leaving Williamstown on its own. A five-member committee solicited bids from area police agencies for a range of service options, including 24-hour patrols, seven days a week. Besides Meridian, Mason and the county, Williamston police Sgt. Jeff Hull and former Williamston police Chief Mark Hetfield submitted bids. The city of Williamton declined to bid for the contract. None of the bidders could provide around-the-clock service within the township’s budget of about $300,000 per year, officials said. The proposals from Hull and Hetfield came close, but committee members were

concerned that those proposals wouldn’t cover all of the costs of starting a new police department. The sheriff’s office bid $250,000 and Mason $301,000 for 80 hours of patrol, plus 911 service. The committee concluded that Meridian was the best option, followed by the sheriff’s office. Committee members were concerned that starting a new police department might carry problems, including a lack of supervision at times and inadequate backup.

‘Not an easy decision’

“It was not an easy decision for the committee to make,” Martin said. “They looked at a lot of factors and had good discussions.” Police service has been a big issue in rural parts of the county because the sheriff’s office will eliminate its road patrol division at the beginning of next year. Aftr the ballot proposals fell in the other townships, some residents urged the Township Board to reconsider the assessment plan. But the board decided to proceed with the special assessment, noting that nearly 55 percent of voters approved the ballot question. Trustee Frans Wilbrink, who has opposed the assessment plan on various grounds, voted against the board’s action in Tuesday night’s meeting.

WILLIAMSTON — A city resident is collecting donations to help a family of three displaced by a fire last week. “They lost virtually everything,” said Sandy Whelton, a friend of John Delaney, whose 110-yearold house suffered an estimated $60,000 in damages from the Dec. 8 blaze. “With Christmas coming, we need to think about other people. The kids are going to need clothes.” The blaze at 120 W.

Church St. began about 8 a.m. in the back rooms and caused extensive smoke and fire damage to the inside, fire officials said. Delaney, who operated a hair salon at the residence, and his two children were not home at the time. City police Sgt. Jeff Hull noticed smoke coming from inside the house and called the fire department, police and fire officials said. Firefighters from several area departments responded, extinguishing the blaze in about an hour, Williamston Fire Chief William

Siegel said. Delaney operated Oz the Salon at the old white house on West Church, just west of Putnam Street. He also is a singer and actor who does costume-related work for Michigan State University’s Wharton Center, friends said. Anyone who wants to help the family can make a check payable to “Delaney Family Fund” in care of Sandy Whelton, 428 Mill St., Williamston, MI 48895. They also can leave a check at Whelton’s home or at The Equipoise, 3169 N. Williamston Road.

Today, 201 School St. serves as a community center, library, food bank and senior center. However 136 years ago, when Ulysses S. Grant was president and people drove horse and buggies instead of cars, it served as a school. It was one of the most important buildings in Williamston because it provided education and bright futures for the citizens in the small farming community. The first public school was built in 1874 and served its purpose until it burned to the ground in 1887. The community needed a school, so local contractor, Hiram E. Higbee, built a new one in the same year. Upon completion of the new school, more room was needed, so another building was built northwest of the new school. This new building served as the high school for the Williamston community.

into one building at the price of $155,000, with the addition of a gymnasium. However, different colors of bricks were used to build the buildings, so even though the buildings are connected, a clear difference in the two buildings can be seen from the back side. This “hybrid” building served as all three schools until 1961 when a new elementary school was built at 416 Highland St. and a new high school was built at 3845 Vanneter Road. The building at 201 School St. remained the Williamston Junior High School until 1990 when a new high school was built at 3939 Vanneter Road. The old high school building then became the new junior high school. The building at 201 School St. became the community center and remains the community center to this day. This historic building in downtown Williamston remains a local symbol. Even though the building lost its original purpose as a school, it’s still important to the community.

Williamston Enterprise

You deserve a rapid recovery A robotic-assisted hysterectomy offers most women numerous potential benefits over traditional approaches to hysterectomies, particularly with more complex procedures like radical hysterectomy for gynecological cancer. Women undergoing robotic-assisted surgery typically experience: • Significantly less pain and fewer complications • Less blood loss and a decreased risk of infection • Less scarring • A shorter hospital stay (as short as a single day for total hysterectomies) and dramatically-decreased recovery time • A quicker return to normal daily activities Sparrow is mid-Michigan’s leader in robotic-assisted surgery. The experience and expertise of our highlydedicated team has made Sparrow midMichigan’s leader in robotic-assisted surgery with more intensively-trained surgeons than any other hospital in the region.

generous donation from MPC Lumber in Williamston, along with some cash donations from Boy Scout supporters, provided the necessary materials for the project to get under way. In April, volunteers from Troop 63 cut the wood and assembled the racks, under the direction of Ryan. In mid-May, the ground where each bike rack was to be placed was leveled and prepped by scouts and other community volunteers. Once the sites were prepared, the bike racks were installed and were ready for use this summer. The Eagle Project took 152 hours to complete: 36.5 leadership hours by Ryan, as well as 115.5 hours by 14 other dedicated scouts and volunteers in the community. An Eagle Scout Court of Honor will be conducted for Ryan at 3 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 12, at the Williamston United Methodist Church, located at 211 S. Putnam St.


In 2003, he received the Arrow of Light, and two years later, he was tapped as a member of the Order of the Arrow. During the past five years, Ryan earned a total of 47 merit badges and participated in two expeditions to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, N.M. A 2010 graduate of Williamston High School, Ryan was named valedictorian and is now attending Michigan State University as an Academic Scholar.

WILLIAMSTON — As part of a community that recognizes fitness as an important element in quality of life, biking is one of several activities that offer Williamstown Township and Williamston residents the opportunity for improved health and a chance to enjoy the great outdoors. With the completion of a bike path along Grand River Avenue from the Williamston Post Office at Zimmer Road west to Meridian Road through a grant-funded project, residents and visitors are now able to walk and bike more safely to the Williamstown Township Community Park. Fortunately, one local teen recognized the need for having bike racks at the park so that people can take in a soccer match, baseball game or walk the trails and not have to worry about leaving their bike unsecured. Ryan Ryan McGuire, a resident McGuire of Williamstown Township and active member of Boy Scout Troop 63 in Williamston, proposed the idea of building and installing three eco-friendly bike racks in the township for his Eagle Project. Two of the racks would be located at Williamstown Township Community Park (one near the soccer fields and the other near the walking trails) and one at Williamstown Township Hall, near the pavilion and baseball field. After drafting a preliminary plan for his idea and rendering a drawing showing what the bike racks would look like, Ryan received approval from Troop 63 and the Williamstown Township Board to proceed.

Mayor: Teamwork key to 2010 city successes December brings 2010 to a close. Some of us have experienced joys, while others have experienced sorrows. The common bond we all have is the spirit of community, regardless of our year’s journey. Times in our state and community our economically tight, but the gifts and opportunities we have witnessed this year are numerous, and we need to cherish each of them, although we need to continue to serve those who are less fortunate. As we recently shared Thanksgiving and reflected on what to be thankful for, we are in the Christmas and New Year season. We reflect and appreciate the community spirit alive and well, and Williamston’s resolve to celebrate our youth, volunteers and neighbors. While other communities are struggling, our city has been afforded the opportunity to experience opportunity during a difficult economy. Highlights include: • Locating, building and opening the Centurion Medical Products headquarters, a state-of-the art 72,000-square-feet facility, providing 200 quality jobs. • Completion of Federal Department of Commerce Economic Development Grant Road Project in the I-96 Industrial Park, providing business and job growth opportunities. • The Williamston Road Phase I project, providing grant funding to complete the long-awaited work from I-96 and Williamston Road. • The Wellhead Protection Plan, providing a community committee offering input and solutions to safeguard and manage our water supply. • The City of Williamston 2010-14 Master Park Plan, giving a detailed plan for our city’s parks and future. • The McCormick Park Project, providing grant dollars to our city for an improvement project, including state grants, to provide recreational opportunities to our entire com-

• The Sept. 11 Memorial Service, where the city remembered and shared the tragic events of 9/11 together with our fire department (Northeast Ingham Emergency Service Authority), police department, city officials, churches, service groups, residents and business owners. • The Memorial Day Parade sponsored by our American Legion members, including our veterans, youth, officials, residents, remembering the ultimate sacrifice given by our military so we can continue to live in freedom and offer hope to those around the world. • A resolution for Stop the Loss Foundation, with no city funds, giving the city support and encouragement to this organization supporting their assistance to veterans faced with invisible wounds of post-traumatic stress disorders. • City support of Eagle Scout Drew Peyton’s Eagle Project of the Jubilee 5K Race and the Williamston

Boy Scouts’ annual haunted house at the Williamston Community Center. • A neighborhood Michigan Housing and Development Authority (MSHDA) grant partnered with the Ingham County Housing Commission, with no city funds, gave financial opportunities to residents to improve designated neighborhoods. • Completion of apartments in commercial downtown, provided by MSHDA Downtown Rental Rehabilitation grants, with no city funds, for affordable housing opportunities and business retention. • The purchase of mobile digital speed signs to ensure public safety and institute a pro-active approach reminding residents of their approaching speed into the city and other targeted areas. • Pure Michigan city policy, to post city events on the Pure Michigan Website promoting our communitywide events and a marketing tool for our downtown area.

The city is currently reviewing a committee and city policy to work on drafting a Complete Streets Policy, as recently passed by the legislature and signed into law. • AmMedical marijuana moratorium. The city passed a moratorium for six months, allowing the Planning Commission and City Council to review the current state law, municipal policies, identifying and proposing zoning proposals, and providing public input. • Passage of the city’s zoning rewrite of local ordinances. • A Safe Routes to School Grant Award, a partnership between our schools and city. • Implementation of NIXLE by the city and police to provide a community information service for residents to stay connected to important information, our police department, local schools, community agencies and organizations. • Securing the U.S. De-

partment of Agriculture Rural Development program loans at historic low interest rates for the long-needed city’s water and sewer improvements. • City budget workshops and posting of documents on the city’s Website, and public locations, providing transparency and opportunity for taxpayers to have a voice in the budget process. I am thankful for the dedication and commitment to community exhibited by the hard work and results of our partnerships between our residents, city boards, staff, businesses, churches, service groups, schools and local, county, state and federal agencies. The opportunities our community has experienced would be impossible without the teamwork.Please let me offer my heartfelt appreciation to each of you for your spirit of community and wishes for a safe and happy holiday season. Michelle Hyne Van Wert is the mayor of Williamston.

Perry w Top player: Sarah Trierweiler, Portland w League outlook: The top half of this league is strong with Portland expected to be highly ranked in Class B and Lakewood and Lansing Catholic featuring experienced standouts. Few teams locally will be able to deal with the Raiders’ frontcourt size — but the Vikings might be among that few. WILLIAMSTON

w Last season: 8-13, fifth

w Coach: Pete Cool, fourth season

(119) jr.; Jacob Brandon (171) jr.; Jacob Lippe (140) fr. w Outlook: The Hornets had good offseason participation in the weight room and in summer camps. Look for Sawaya, a two-time CAAC champion, to again qualify for states.

w Returning starters: Lauren Epple (5-10

F) sr., Michaela Marble (5-5 G) sr., Jordan Waters (5-6 G) jr., Kelsey Erickson (5-9 F) jr. w Outlook: Epple was an all-leaguer last season and leads a veteran starting lineup. A number of newcomers are expected to contribute as the team looks to finish over .500 for the first time in three seasons.

Independent League WEBBERVILLE w Last season: 10-10 as independent w Coach: Kris Tennant, second season w Returning starters: Samantha Perez (5-8 F) sr., Afton Eberly (5-9 F) sr., Shonda Hart (5-5 F) sr., Katie Crandall (5-2 G) sr. w Other contributors: Angel Baldwin (5-4 F) sr., Haley Beck (5-2 G) sr. w Outlook: Perez was the team’s second-leading scorer and Eberly its top rebounder last season.

CAAC Blue/White

Coaches’ prediction: 1. Lansing Catholic, 2. Lakewood, 3. Grand Ledge, 4. Corunna, 5. Portland, 6. Williamston. w League outlook: The Blue and White are again combined after the Blue combined with the Red and the White competed on its own for 2009-10. Leagues favorites Lansing Catholic and Lakewood finished ninth and fifth, respectively, at regionals last season. Grand Ledge could have its best team in five years of competing and should push for a top spot.

w Team composition: 18 total (four

seniors, four juniors, five sophomores, five freshmen) w Returning starters: Adele Burke (sr.), Jaedyn Allen (jr.), Alex Harris (jr.). w Outlook: The Hornets have doubled in number from last season, although only a few starters are back.

DeWitt, 3. Williamston, 4. Eaton Rapids, 5. Ionia, 6. Corunna w Top swimmer: Andrew Beaumann, Haslett w Top diver: Chris McLauchlan, Haslett w Outlook: This could be the most talent the CAAC Gold/White has had in a number of years.

Hornets top Stockbridge


Tuesday, Dec. 14

WILLIAMSTON — Hornet wrestlers earned their first win of the season, beating Stockbridge 55-21 at the Battle of M-52 held in Williamston Dec. 8. Williamston came up short in the second match, losing to Dansville 49-24. “We are pretty young, we graduated a lot last year,” Williamston coach Pat Weber said. “They (younger wrestlers) have been role players and now they have to step up and learn how to be starters.” Weber also has about 10 wrestlers who were part of the Williamston football team that just finished second in the state finals. Several have had only a few practices. “They are in football shape and not wrestling shape,” he said. Against Dansville, Williamston’s Tyler Schmidt won by forfeit at 103 pounds. Williamston forfeited at 112 and 119 pounds. Williamston’s Mitch Diamond lost to Cole Ragon at 125 pounds. Williamston voided at 130. Brodie Austin earned a win for Williamston with a 12-6 decision over Brandon Gochis at 135 pounds. Zach Ostrander pinned the Aggies Dayton Yanz at 140 pounds. Paul Sawaya picked up a Hornet win by forfeit at 145 pounds. Dansville’s Kaleb Meyer pinned Collin Schoenborn at 152 pounds. Williamston’s Spencer Demand lost a 6-4 decision to Jacob Hause at 160 pounds. Dansville’s Joey Stid pinned Jacob Brandon at 171 pounds. Williamston’s Caleb Risdon defeated Andre Perez 11-6 at 189 pounds.

Prep schedule

LANSING — The Friends of Fenner Nature Center (FOFNC) invites the public to its Holiday Open House from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 18. The event, sponsored by the FOFNC and supported by the Lansing Park Board, will feature an appearance by Santa Claus and his elves, fun games and crafts and the opportunity to learn more about the nature center. “Fenner Nature Center has undergone significant changes in how it is managed, and the Friends of Fenner are proud to say that Fenner Nature Center is currently expanding programming to better reach Lansing-area residents, as well as visitors from around the world,” said Jason Meyer, executive director of Fenner Nature Center.

“I hear stories from people all the time about how they came here as a kid, and haven’t been back for 20 years, or that they have lived in Lansing for their entire lives and had never heard of Fenner. “This open house is our way of inviting the community out to our park and nature center so that they can see first-hand what an amazing place we have hidden right here in Lansing.” Fenner Nature Center is composed of about 130 acres of a variety of habitats, ranging from forest to wetland to prairie. This mix of habitats, along with the four miles of hiking trails, provides people the opportunity to get close to Michigan’s native plants and animals in a natural setting. The staff at the nature center lead guided

walks and programs for participants of all ages. “I hope that people see this open house as more than a one-time visit to Fenner,” Meyer said. “I see it as an invitation for folks to get involved in nature, in their community, and to find a place to reflect on what is important in life — not just during the holiday season, but throughout the entire year.” For more information about the open house or other programs offered at Fenner, call (517) 483-4224 or visit the Website at Fenner is located at 2020 E.

Theater receives grant to continue matinees WILLIAMSTON — The Williamston Theatre will be continuing its School Day Matinee program and will be able to provide free tickets to live theater for area high school students thanks to a generous grant from the Verizon Foundation. The theater will be offering School Day Matinees for its upcoming production of “Oedipus” in February 2011. The theater will be mounting an adaptation of Sophocles’ classic Greek tragedy about providence and destiny written by Tony Caselli and Annie Martin. Oedipus journeys through life, attempting to outrun a

foretold prophesy only to land right in the hands of fate. Four stellar actors bring the story to life as the intimate Williamston Theatre space is theatrically expanded to hold this epic and stunning tale of the ages. “We’re very excited to be continuing our School Day Matinee Program with this play,” says Executive Director John Lepard. “Students will have a unique opportunity to see this classic tragedy come to life. It’s the best way to learn about drama and storytelling.” High school students from East Lansing, Mason and Williamston will be attending specially


Letters to the editor Holiday safety

During this holiday season the Williamston Firefighters’ Association reminds you to take extra care as you decorate your home. Please be especially cautious with holiday lights on your Christmas tree and around your residence. On average, Christmas trees account for 250 house fires, 14 deaths, 26 injuries and over $13 million in property damage every holiday season in the United States. Keep your tree properly watered and remove it from your home promptly if it becomes too dry. As you are decorating or undecorating this season, please inspect all of your lights and bring any damaged or non-working strands to the Northeast Ingham Emergency Service Authority (NIESA) Williamston Fire Station at 1296 W. Grand River Ave. for recycling. Proceeds from this project will be used to help with community outreach and service projects. The Williamston Firefighters’ Association

Fan of Depot

Currently there are “safe places” for most of us. One of my safe places is the Williamston Depot. I love that place and am in awe of the folks who take care of it: Jane Johnson, Clois O’Dell, Rosemary Phillip and too many others I’m not going to mention. I’m sure I would leave someone out. Sunday, Dec. 5, was such a great place at the Depot. Warmth, friends, cookies, Val Berryman and his Santa Claus collection from around the world — a lovely two hours. This town will always be grateful to David Jones for being the primary motivator for moving the Depot from its original location to the present site. It’s a lovely building. Living in Williamston is a treat! Betty Honey Williamston
