Webberville & eastern Ingham County for 138 years

The police beat goes on Road project

WEBBERVILLE — It’s not every day that you get to arrest the assistant principal. But for 13-year-old Austin Oakley, it was just another day on the beat. And he was determined to do things by the book. While searching the building, Austin and his fellow team members located the suspicious character hiding in a storeroom and quickly had him in custody. “Come out of there, put your hands up,” Austin shouted, blue plastic gun in hand, before handcuffing the make-believe suspect: Assistant Principal Richard Smith. The search scenario at the Webberville Secondary Education Building came on the final day of the Junior Police Academy, a boot camp of sorts for students 12-14. Over four days, Ingham County Sheriff’s Deputy Jim Cousino led the 16 students through real-life scenarios ranging from drug searches to traffic stops to crime scene investigations. Along the way, the children learn something about good citizenship, making good decisions and protecting themselves and others from threats, Cousino said.

WILLIAMSTON — Some residents say they were left feeling out in the cold about a road reconstruction project that will claim a pair of mature maple trees along North Williamston Road. About a dozen people attended an open house discussion on the road project on July 13 at City Hall, followed by an informal City Council meeting Karen Joy McGarry and several neighbors raised concerns about the loss of the two trees in front of her business, Equipoise, at 3169 N. Williamston Road and said they weren’t given adequate notice about the project. “I’m just sad about the whole thing,” McGarry said. “The trees are part of it. (But) it just amazes me that they didn’t contact the main property stakeholders in the beginning.” City officials said they did

their best to notify residents who will be impacted by the project. There may be no way to spare the trees without jeopardizing the grantfunded road project, they said. A section of North Williamston between Linn Road and Industrial Park Drive is scheduled to be rebuilt beginning in September. The first phase of the reconstruction project was completed in early June. The project is being partly funded by a $375,000 federal grant administered through the state Department of Transportation. McGarry said the city didn’t follow the proper process regarding historical homes and should have notified residents impacted by the road work as the planning began. The road project will affect the value her property, she said. City officials said they had to act quickly to take advantage of the grant money and did their best to notify residents in the area. The grant guidelines require a 50-foot “clear zone” along the corridor, meaning that any trees or other immovable objects within that See

big hit. In the “Creeper Grab,” the students practiced fighting off Cousino as he tried to grab them, kicking him in the shins and running to find help. “All week, we’ve been pushing the idea of personal space and how to get away if somebody tries to grab you,” Cousino said. The Junior Police Academy is an accredited program developed by Police USA, a national organization that provides training and tools for community resource officers. It’s designed to encourage young people to work with police to build safer schools and communities. Cousino, the community resource officer assigned to Webberville, worked with Secondary Principal Tim Dowker and Assistant Principal Smith on the Webberville program.

The kids were conscientious and eager to learn, the officer said. “If you spend 10 minutes with these kids, you can’t help but be impressed,” Cousino said. “I think I had more fun than they did.” Recruit Austin Oakley and classmate Kaleigh Atkins, 13, were back at the academy for the second time. Both said they enjoyed themselves. “We’ve done a lot more stuff this year,” said Austin, whose grandfather was a police officer. All that police training seemed to have an impact. When a reporter walked into a classroom to interview them, several students ran to get Cousino, who had stepped out for a few moments. “That’s what they are supposed to do,” Cousino said, laughing.

zone must be removed, Allard said. The city could ask for an exception to those rules, but engineers said it has no chance of succeeding without an overriding justification, Allard said. Moreover, an appeal would likely delay the project for several weeks and could postpone the project until the next construction season, he said. A longer delay might jeopardize the grant altogether, he said. If the roadway were moved to spare the two trees in the city right-of-way, at

least three on private property would have to be removed, Allard said. “I feel that we’ve done a reasonably good job, and we’ve come up with a very good design that, unfortunately, would result in two mature trees being taken down. Construction bids are scheduled to be opened on Aug. 6. Plans call for the road to be rebuilt along a straighter path to smooth the flow of traffic, city officials said. Also, a hilly section will be lowered by a foot to provide a better line of sight. The two lanes will be 12 feet wide,

with a 5-foot paved bike path on either side. Mayor Michelle Hyne said she understands the concerns about the trees but believes the current plan is the best way to go for the city. The city had to move quickly to take advantage of the grant, she said. “I don’t think it’s an issue that any of us are happy about,” she said, “But we have a deteriorating road that needs a total rebuild, and we are now in the position to fund this total project. “We need to find a way to make this work.”

The Red Cedar: a natural, historic treasure The Red Cedar River is a huge attraction in the small town of Williamston. The Red Cedar River runs right through the middle of town as it passes along the north edge of McCormick Park, traveling under the bridge and through the new rapids. The Red Cedar River or the Cedar River, which they used to call it, was first discovered by an explorer named Hugh Howard in 1790. He was a British fur trader on an adventure through mid-Michigan. The name “Cedar” came from the fact that the length of the river was lined with thousands of cedar trees. Over the years the name was changed to the Red Cedar River. One version for the change is that it was to distinguish between another Cedar River in Michigan. Originally, the river used to be a water trail for the Native Americans. If you were a member of a Native American tribe, in your wooden canoe many years ago, going down the river you would see acres of corn, beans, rice and even pumpkins. These foods were planted by the Native Americans who lived in the region. Even now, the river is sur-

rounded by hundreds of farms and houses, similar to the Chippewa camps and villages that were found all along the river. The Red Cedar River is a home for many types of wildlife. During a recent kayak trip from Dietz Road, east of Williamston to Ferguson Park in Okemos, many animals were seen, including beavers, woodchucks, foxes, deer, owls and muskrats.

I was speaking with a patron last week who shared a great way to save some money this summer when it is just too hot to cook. Check out for online coupons that could save you 60 percent of your dining bill. Let someone else do the cooking and the washing up! I also wanted to let you know about an important vote coming up this summer that affects the library. Many of you are aware that almost 90 percent of the funding for the CADL system comes from property taxes, collected as a millage. Our current millage has expired, and in order for the library to remain open, it must be renewed by the voters in our service area. Renewing the millage would not increase taxes.

Voters would simply be agreeing to continue funding CADL at the current rate for the next four years. With these funds, the 13 CADL locations and bookmobile will continue to provide excellent services, collections and programs. Without them, our doors will close on Jan. 3, 2011. The vote will take place this Aug. 3. For more information, please visit millage, or pick up a brochure at the library. The Williamston Library, a Capital Area District Library, is located inside the Community Center at 201 School Street. For information about our hours, programs or services, please call (517) 655-1191 or visit Michele Brussow is head libarian of the Williamston Library.






Don’t Let The Story End

“Going to the Downtown Lansing library is one of my fondest childhood memories. I believe access to the library at a young age led to a lifelong love of reading and learning. My husband and I look forward to passing on our love of books to our future children using CADL.” 0100025369

ed by Tony Caselli, the show is scheduled for Nov. 11-Dec. 19. • “Oedipus” is the classic Greek tragedy about providence and destiny. Oedipus journeys through life, attempting to outrun a foretold prophesy only to land right in the hands of fate. Four actors bring the story to life as the intimate Williamston Theatre space is theatrically expanded to hold this epic tale of the ages. Directed by Caselli, the show runs Jan. 27-Feb. 20, 2011. • “While We Were Bowling” takes us through the struggles a “typical” 1950s family faces as it tries to hold itself together through teenage marriage, paternal death, the integration of a young black boy into the family and the pressurefilled legacy of bowling. These trials and tribulations force them to redefine what family means. John Lepard will direct this Michigan premiere, set to run March 17-April 17, 2011. • “Eleemosynary” is an evocative play about love, personal identity and the importance of family. This bittersweet comedy examines the subtle and often perilous relationship between a young girl, her mother and her grandmother. A unique family blessed — and cursed — with supreme intelligence and eccentricity, this play shows a snapshot of powerful familial love. Directed by Lynn Lammers, performances will be held May 12-June 12, 2011. • “And The Creek Don’t Rise” is a new comedic, heartwarming tale of survival, acceptance and embracing a new homeland. Rob and Maddie, longtime Michiganders and one of the many casualties of economic downsizing, find themselves experiencing a severe case of culture shock after they move to a small town in Georgia for a new job. When their friendly nextdoor neighbor invites Rob to join him in a Civil War re-enactment, a simple and comical misunderstanding ignites

WILLIAMSTON — The Williamston Theatre, located at 122 S. Putnam St., celebrates its fifth season starting in September. The 2010-2011 season will include: “Blue Door” by Tanya Barfield, “Greater Tuna” by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard, “Oedipus” by Sophocles, the Michigan premiere of “While We Were Bowling” by Carter W. Lewis, “Eleemosynary” by Lee Blessing and the world premiere of “And The Creek Don’t Rise” by Michigan playwright Joseph Zettelmaier. Each of the six productions will begin with five preview performances. During the first four previews, audience members will participate a talkback session with the director after each play. Preview performances are the first two Thursday performances of each production as well as the first Friday, Saturday and Sunday performances. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 8 p.m. The Sunday performance is at 2 p.m. • “Blue Door” is a vivid, exuberantly theatrical play about the African-American male experience. A tenured professor of mathematics is jolted from the rut of his life when his wife accuses him of denying his heritage. While experiencing a disorienting insomnia, he inadvertently conjures his ancestors. Three generations of men, from slavery through black power, challenge him to embark upon a journey combining the past and present. Directed by Suzi Regan, the show runs Sept. 23-Oct. 17. • “Greater Tuna” is a love-letter to small-town mores, qualities and quirks. Meet Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye and Rev. Spikes, just some of the upstanding citizens of Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas. In this off-Broadway hit, two actors take the viewer through a typical day in the life of Tuna and its most whimsical denizens. Direct-

I serve as a hearing panel member for the Attorney Discipline Board. All areas of government are under pressure to improve efficiency. What are your suggestions for improving the efficiency of this court? The efficiency of the court is dependent upon the efforts of several people interacting in any given case. The judge, the court staff, the attorneys and the parties all need to work toward a common goal of efficient processing of the litigation. The court’s judges are responsible for setting appropriate control over the progress of cases. Unnecessary delay in that progress can result in inefficiencies and increased costs to the parties and the court system. Implementation of a Federal Court style electronic filing system is one method of improving efficiency of the court’s processing of matters. Do you accept political contributions from attorneys or law firms that appear before you? Is this a conflict of interest? Please explain. Yes, the Committee to Elect Jim Jamo is accepting campaign contributions from attorneys. It is not a conflict of interest as long as the candidate abides by Canon 7 of the Code of Judicial Conduct, and if elected adheres to his or her ethical obligation to judge without bias toward any party appearing before the court.

In-Laws: Jack and Peggy O’Berry w Campaign website: What makes you qualified for this position? I have worked in the legal field for 34 years, starting in an entry level position. My experience is diverse and covers a variety of issues that would come before a Circuit Court Judge. This experience includes a range of private practice topics, including family, real estate, contracts, employment and criminal defense cases. In addition, I have served as an Assistant City Attorney for over 23 years with criminal prosecution and municipal experience. I have also handled numerous issues before various administrative agencies. I have experience both at the trial level and appellate level. My experience in both the District Court and Circuit Courts along with appellate experience makes me uniquely qualified as a Circuit Judge with a broad perspective to draw from in weighing the evidence in any type of case. All areas of government are under pressure to improve efficiency. What are your suggestions for improving the efficiency of this court? Resources are limited and must be used the most effectively. The use of specialty courts is a way to divert cases that could otherwise be handled more effectively and reduce recidivism. For example, substance abuse is the underlying cause of many criminal cases. Not every one should be incarcerated and with limited jail and prison space, warehousing individuals to be released just to repeat crimes is not an appropriate resolution. A sobriety court uses other resources to intervene in the pattern and has proven to be very successful in reducing repeat violations. The courts have been using facilitative mediation to encourage parties to resolve civil cases. This practice should be continued, however, an incentive must be put into place to encourage the parties to settle and not just use mediation to prolong a case. I have training as a facilitative mediator. Those cases that cannot be settled very quickly should proceed to trial immediately. Do you accept political contributions from attorneys or law firms that appear before you? Is this a conflict of interest? Please explain. The election laws prohibit accepting any checks from businesses or corporations. In addition, I have always believed that law firms should not host fundraisers for judicial candidates. One of the canons of ethics provides that the appearance of any impropriety be avoided. Although a judicial candidate can only solicit $100 from an attorney, the total amount given per election cycle can be much higher. Furthermore, if the law firm has several members and each contributes to the judicial candidate’s campaign this can be a significant amount.

Do you believe that the court is providing timely and quality service? If so, elaborate on details. If not, what do you propose to improve? The efficiency of the court has gone down over the last few years. As an attorney who has practiced before this court and others I see many days which turn out to be wasted time for the attorneys and all of the parties. My goal would be to minimize the amount of preliminary matters brought before the court, with the use of specific pretrial orders which contained hard and fast dates. Do you accept political contributions from attorneys or law firms that appear before you? Is this a conflict of interest? Please explain. Yes we have accepted contributions from other lawyers. I do not believe the minor amounts of contributions could or should create a conflict of interest. Remember the limit for contributions as I understand it is $1,000.00.

ble extracurricular programming. The Michigan High School Athletic Association, based in East Lansing, is best known for conducting tournaments, registering officials and helping its member schools in the daily administration of their after school athletic programs. It’s now taking a cuttingedge step to give schools the opportunity to meet some of their needs through videostreaming technology. In cooperation with When We Were Young Productions, the driving force behind the MHSAA Network; and PlayOn! Sports, the platform for the Web site; the Association has been conducting a pilot program involving more than 20 schools to determine the viability of its new Digital Broadcasting Program. The schools, primarily from the Capital Area Activities Conference in mid Michigan, were provided with a kit so they could create video coverage — complete with graphics — of their athletic events in all sports and at all levels. They were also given a base stipend for their participation, and a number of schools more than doubled their money by exceeding the minimum number of events they produced and posted after the completion of each game to the Web site. The total number of games created by the pilot

schools exceeded 600 during the fall and winter sports seasons, and will grow even more with spring sports coverage. Schools also have enjoyed added exposure for their athletic programs, given the students involved in producing the content work experience. “I’ve talked to staff members at schools involved in the Digital Broadcasting Program who tell me that this has engaged the kids doing the production in a very meaningful way,” said Thomas Bouwer, marketing specialist for PlayOn! Sports. “At one school, a young man who was considering dropping out has stayed in school and is doing better in school because of his participation in the program.” Bouwer is now working with schools in the pilot group, and recruiting additional schools from the Ottawa-Kent Conference on the west side of the state, to use the opportunities the Digital Broadcasting Program provides for schools and its booster clubs to raise new funds for their programs — not simply diffuse existing funds. “There’s a lot of excitement on the part of schools about the opportunity to sell banner ads, pre-roll ads and even in-game advertisements on the digital broadcasts of their school’s games,” Bouwer said. “They see the potential for the financial assistance they need, and the

55th District Court — Paid for by the Committee to Elect Paul T. Joseph P.O. Box 293 Williamston, MI 48895

WILLIAMSTON — The Michigan Barn Preservation Network celebrated 15 years during its their annual conference and meeting at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing recently. This conference begins with a day-long bus tour of area barns that falls under the job assignment of Dan Creyts of west Lansing. This tour is popular with those who have a hunger for the history of barns. MBPN also recognizes barn preservation projects. Clifford Simmons of Omega Farms in Williamston recently accepted the award for

its recent restoration of the Sale Barn near its farm office complex on M-52 just north of Grand River Avenue. MBPN awarded the Omega Barn the Commercial Agricultural Adaptive Use recognition. The farm encompasses some 4,000 acres that were built up by the Simmons Family. At one time the family had a second location in Kansas, a ranch where it raised cattle. Challenges witih managing two locations so far apart led to rethinking its farming philosophy, resulting in this single-location decision.

Omega Farms has long been known for its concrete fences and beef cattle. Both of these factors are being incorporated in the restoration of the Michigan Buildings on Omega. Going into 2009, buildings on Grand River Avenue had been upgraded. The Sale Barn was the focus of its energies for project 2009. — From Cecil Darnell

DEWITT — East Lansing Post 205 baseball came up short in the Spartan Classic, winning three games before losing to St. Joseph Post 163 in the final during the threeday tournament held July 9-11 at DeWitt High School. Post 205 started the tournament with a 1-0 win over Lakes #2 Palomino of Walled Lake. Williamston’s Dylan Monette was the winning pitcher, striking out five Lakes batters. St. Johns’ Jared Nurenberg scored the lone run for Post 205, smashing a double. He took third on a sacrifice fly and scored on a sacrifice fly by Nikolai Jump of Williamston. Post 205 lost 5-2 to St. Jo-

seph in the second game of the tournament. Brian Risk of Hanover-Horton took the lost, his first of the year. He struck out five and allowed six hits. Post 205 Coach Bob Gast said they outhit St. Joseph 9-6, but three errors resulted in three unearned runs for St. Joseph. Nurenberg hit a two-run homer for Post 205’s only runs. Chuck DeClarke of Lansing Catholic went 3-for-3 with a double. Jacob Pearsall of St. Johns was the winning pitcher in an 11-2 defeat of Grand Ledge. He struck out four Comet batters. Tyler Watters of Williamston had a big game, going 3-for-3 with a homer and a triple. He drove in three runs. Jump went 2-for-3 at

the plate. St. Johns batters Jacob Robinson and Ryan Joy each hit a home run. Portland St. Patrick’s Tyler Smith was the winning pitcher in the 10-2 win over Sanches Construction of Lansing. He struck out five and gave up five hits. “We were leading 3-2 going into the bottom of the sixth inning, and all of a sudden we started hitting,” Gast said. “We scored seven runs to get the mercy win.” DeClarke was 3-for-4 with a double. Nurenberg went 2-for-4 with an RBI and scored a run. DeWitt’s Trevor Bowers was 1-for-2 with an RBI. Connor Metevier, another DeWitt player, was 1-for-4 and scored a run. Post 205 bounced Gladwin 8-0 in the semifinal. DeClarke was the winning

pitcher, striking our four batters. He has a 6-1 season record and also blasted a home run in the game. Nurenberg was 1-for-3 with a two-run double. Robinson and Jump each went 2-for-3 with an RBI. Allen Manyen of Mason was 2-for-3. After two lengthy rain delays, a coaching ejection, three lead changes and a game that took more than five hours to complete, Post 205’s title hopes came up short in a 13-11 loss to St. Joseph Post 163. “It was an exciting game, but it’s just never fun to end up on the short end of the stick,” Gast said. “We had some good pitching left that just wasn’t so good in this one.” DeClarke blasted a tworun home run in the bottom

of the sixth inning, tying the game at 8-8. “He has been our guy all season long, and he would have been the MVP of this tournament had we won,” Gast said of DeClarke. “He means so much to this team — and for him, I would have loved to seen us win this tournament.” Things unraveled in the top of the seventh as St. Joseph scored five runs, two of which were unearned, to take a 13-8 lead. Post 205 added three runs in the bottom of the seventh on a homer by Robinson, but it was not enough to overcome St. Joseph. Robinson went 3-for-4 with four RBI. Joy had a two-run homer. Jump was 2-for-3 with an RBI. Nurenberg was 3-for-5 with a two-run double.

Post 205 had four errors in the title game. East Lansing came up short against the CMU All Stars, losing 9-4 July 13. “It was not a typical game for us,” Gast said. “We just had a lot of errors and they are a good team. We swept them twice at MSU, so they were hungry to get after us.” Monette was the losing pitcher. Robinson was 2-for-2. Watters was 2-for-4. Post 205 plays in the Palomino State Tournament at Mount Pleasant July 21-24. The next stop would be the North Zone Tournament at Kankakee, Ill. on July 28-31. The Palomino World Series will be held at San Jose on Aug. 4-8. — Sean Merriman of LSJ Media contributed to this story.
