unexcused absences. Under the charter, the council will have 60 days to appoint someone to serve the remainder of Simmons’ term, which expires in December 2013. Besides Simmons’ replacement, the Council will get at least one new member in the November elections. Four Council seats are up for grabs, inluding the seat now held by Larry Wittrup, who is not running for election. Wittrup was appointed to serve the remainder of the term won by Tim Grossman, who was removed from the board after five consecutive unexcused absences. Eight candidates are running for the four seats, including incumbents John Pratt, Michael Moody and Scott VanAllsburg. The election and new vacancy come at a time when the city is searching to replace City Manager Tim Allard, who plans to retire in November. Wittrup, Pratt and Moody are part of a sixmember search commitee that were supposed to have brought a list of candidates to the City Council by late September. As of last week, the committee had met three

times. But problems posting the job opening with the Michigan Municipal League meant the notice didn’t go up until less than two weeks ago, committee members said. As of sept. 21, the city had recieved three or four applications, said Wittrup, who chairs the committee. Wittrup said he’ll recommend that the group bring its recommendations to the Council by the second meeting of October. Because council seats could change hands in November, it might help to to postpone candidate interviews until December, he said. “We need to make sure we make the right decision,” Wittrup said. “Do you do it the smart way, or do you hurry and perhaps make the wrong decision?”

This year, Banned Books Week falls from Sept. 24–Oct. 1. Observed since 1982 and sponsored by a long list of library associations, booksellers and education groups, BBW is an annual event supporting the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. It highlights the benefits of free and open access to information, while spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. Whenever I talk about this topic, people are surprised at the number of books that have been banned or challenged. They also question the seemingly silly reasons. Here are some examples from children’s lit: • “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” by author Bill Martin, Jr. and illustrator Eric Carle. This book was bumped from a Texas elementary school curriculum when someone confused Bill Martin, Jr. with a Bill Martin who wrote “Ethical Marxism.”

GUEST COLUMN Julie Chrisinske

• “The Lorax” by Dr. Seuss. Challengers felt the book showed an unfair portrayal of the logging industry. • “James and the Giant Peach” by Roald Dahl. Opponents claimed that this classic promotes alcohol and drug use, and encourages disobedience to parents. • “Light in the Attic” by Shel Silverstein. This book was successfully banned because it was said to “glorify Satan, suicide and cannibalism.” • “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl.” This treasured account of a real-life Holocaust experience was banned for its tragic nature, which some readers felt was a “real downer.” Other passages were deemed “sexually offensive.”

The list of book bannings and challenges goes on and on. But in the end, book banning just doesn’t work. It’s essential that all people, including young people, have the opportunity to explore books and ideas of all kinds. And even more importantly, parents need to be the primary judges of what is appropriate for their children to consume, from books and music to the Internet and television.

We want to express our appreciation and thanks to all the Rotarians whose innovative grant program made this possible. Jill Cutshaw and Danny Hulbert, Co-Directors, Williamston Food Bank

I found out that I was not “part of the project,” that Bismark Street has the second lowest pavement ranking on a one-to-five scale and that it will be several years before my 200 feet of Bismark will be paved. Given that I had PortaJons in my yard, my lawn was dug up, the Spaulding/Bismark intersection was excavated and that I had heavy equipment turning around in my driveway, it’s hard to believe I wasn’t “part of the project.” To educate myself on the finances of this problem I called several paving contractors. As a separate contract project, resurfacing (without grinding) with a couple of inches of asphalt would cost about $5,000. I was told it would be cheaper if done as part of a larger project (aka Economy of Scale) — such as the recent water system improvements, for example? To put this estimate in perspective, $5,000 is 1/2 of 1 percent of the total $5 million cost of the north side water project. Yes, 1/2 of 1 percent. This fact makes it clear why Bismark wasn’t completed — it would have broken the project budget. $5,000, by the way, is less than 25 percent of just the recent amended change orders on the job contract(s). To assist the City of Williamston with the funding necessary to complete projects such as the paving on Bismark to Spaulding, I propose that we taxpayers assist them with money from a community can and bottle drive, thereby demonstrating our civic consciousness and rectifying their silly, penny wise and pound foolish decision to

ignore 200 feet of over a half mile of total paving. My recommendation to the Williamston community is that local residents affected by future major city projects begin their can and bottle drive well in advance of the work. Then, they will have the funds available to supplement financial deficiencies in city decisions. Given this grassroots effort, the city could make a can and bottle collection point available at City Hall and at other locations such as the city engineer’s office. Maybe, through these measures, your street will get completely paved after four months of construction and inconvenience, unlike mine. William (Bill) Lovis Williamston

NEWS IN BRIEF Marriage retreat returns to DeWitt The popular international marriage retreat, Retrouvaille, is once again offered in the Lansing area. Retrouvaille (French for rediscovery) will be at the St. Francis Retreat Center in DeWitt Sept. 30-Oct. 2. The primary goal is to provide help for couples who live in the disappointment and pain of a troubled marriage. The weekend provides a safe setting, encouraging couples to learn communication in a respectful manner. Restoration takes time.

The retreat will help couples rediscover a loving marital relationship.

Hornets are ready to surprise people

Nick Porter, Williamston senior running back and linebacker, is ready to surprise some people. Heading into the Sept. 23 game with a 2-1 record, Porter believes his team is just as capable as they were last year at making a long run into the tournament. “I think we are living up to last year’s standard pretty good so far,” Porter said. “There are a lot of inexperienced guys, but

I’ve been really impressed with the junior class.” The Division 4 state runner-up team bounced back from a 28-44 loss to Ithaca in its season opener, to grab two straight victories over Lakewood and Perry. Porter has continued to control play on both sides of the ball for the Hornets. The senior entered the game against Portland Sept. 23 with 307 rushing yards on 39 carries and three touchdowns. “We had that first loss to Ithaca, and it really showed that we had a lot


to work on,” Porter said. “That loss showed that we needed people to step up and that bye week benefited us a lot because it gave a lot of guys the opportunity to step up. These last couple of games we’ve looked like a very good team.” The Hornets came out of the bye week and grabbed a 32-14 victory over Lakewood followed by a 48-12 defeat over Perry. Only a few starters are back from last year, but the Hornets are loaded with talent.

Porter is getting a lot of help from senior quarterback John Westphal and junior running back Ray Duncan. Westphal, a first year starter, headed into last Friday’s game against Portland, with nine touchdowns, completing 42-of-67 passing for 738 yards and eight touchdown passes. “Nobody knew how he was going to play,” Porter said. “He’s been big for us this year. “Ray Duncan has also really impressed me. He is

a junior and making all the plays for us.” Duncan headed into Portland’s matchup with 10 receptions for 224 yards and four touchdowns. Coach Steve Kersten said, while he was pleased with the offensive performance in the victory over Lakewood, his team will need to minimize penalties in order to survive the upcoming competition. The Hornets had 134 yards in penalties against Perry. “That’s my main area of concern,” Kersten said.

“I think the ceiling has been raised this season. The players came in with high expectations and the effort is there. We just have to put it all together.” The Hornets will have to minimize those errors if they have any hope of surviving a tough Lansing Catholic team Sept. 30. “A big part of last year was senior leadership,” Porter said. “We’ve got senior guys that can make those plays this year. I think we can really surprise some people.”

After a 4-0 start to the season, Williamston tennis faced its toughest competition recently with three dual meets against No. 4 Portland, No. 2 Ann Arbor Greenhills and No. 1 Lansing Catholic. The Hornets fell in all three dual meets, but coach Phil Brillantes thinks the losses may be just what his team needed. “Playing against the best is really the only way to see what your team in made of,” he said. “We learned that we have come along a lot further than expected and we can compete headto-head with some of the best competition in the state, even if this is a rebuilding year for us.” Junior Michael Sienko

remains undefeated at No. 1 singles and recently defeated defending state champion Paul Heeder of Lansing Catholic. Sienko also defeated Chance Conley from Portland, who has also been a top contender for the title over the past few years. “All my singles guys have improved greatly and have pulled some great wins against all those teams,” Brillantes said. “If we get to States, I feel some of my singles guys have the ability to make a deep run in their respective flights.” “Even though we haven’t been winning on paper, our growth has been incredible,” Brillantes said. “Last year, we were not even sure if we would even make States.” The Hornets will host Lansing Christian Tuesday.

Spend Michigan Snake Day with some reptiles Whether you love or loathe snakes, Michigan Snakes Day, Sunday, Sept. 25, from 1 to 5 p.m., is the event for you. Twelve of Michigan’s 17 species will be on hand for up close-inspection. Learn how to identify them. Handle gentle specimens of a variety of species. Watch a snake climb a tree. See snakes eating worms, frogs and mice. Watch other snakes chase and catch fish in a pool. Photo opportunities galore. At 2 p.m., sit for the presentation - “Facts

Over Fear: Things Everyone Should Know About Snakes.” Erroneous beliefs spread through society that produce bad feelings toward these wrongly-vilified reptiles will be discussed. Will a snake bite? Will a snake chase you? Are snakes slimy? Do snakes have fangs? Can a snake sense fear? One question after another produces a factual explanation that sheds light on the unthreatening reality of these needlessly-persecuted creatures.

Visit with the state’s only complete zoo of Michigan turtles and frogs. Walk the trails. Refreshments, too! Admission is $5 per person. Nature Discovery is located at 5900 N. Wil-

Okemos will host Parkinson’s walkathon Dawn Parker

If you’re not walking or running, there will be lots of other things to do and enjoy, including the OHS Someko Singers, Michelle’s Dance Troupe of Haslett and MSU Music Therapy students. Orloff estimates some 30,000 Michigan residents have Parkinson’s. Symptoms include tremors at rest, slowness of movement or reaction and problems with falling or loss of balance in the later stage of the disease. The Lansing support group, one of 56 statewide, meets monthly at Valley Court Community Center in East Lansing at 6 p.m. on the third Tuesday. “There is no cure and no diagnostic test. You don’t die of Parkinson’s, but it can take its toll,” Orloff said. “It affects the patient and the family, and we are working to help both.”

“It’s a good thing this is a show with more mature actors. We’ve gone through our 20s, we’ve experienced a lot. We’ve made mistakes, gotten over that and learned from them. I’ve drawn on all those experiences to bring that into the character.” KARA TREMEL Performer

“It’s a good thing this is a show with more mature actors. We’ve gone through our 20s, we’ve experienced a lot. We’ve made mistakes, gotten over that and learned from them. I’ve drawn on all those experiences to bring that into the character.” While Payne said playing someone she’s never been requires some suspension of disbelief, she does remember what it was like to be 16. She also sees the female

characters as having different acting challenges than the men. “They go from young men to adults, and there’s a lot of tension between them. We haven’t had a transition like that at all, so we’re making two completely different journeys as an actor,” she added. “Thinking about how they moved in the 50s, vs. a hooker character in the 60s – the time period and who your character is makes such a difference.”

OKEMOS – Parkinson’s is a harsh disease – difficult to diagnose, perplexing to treat, a burden to manage. Regular exercise is thought to help, and those participating in the second annual “I Gave My Sole for Parkinson’s” walkathon and 5K run are committed to making things easier. The event begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 1 at Okemos High School, 2800 Jolly Road. Onsite registration begins at 9 a.m. Chairpersons are Gene and Alice Kenyon of Mason. Michigan Parkinson’s Foundation executive director Deborah Orloff said there are 272 participants already pre-registered. The 5K will take place on Okemos High’s crosscountry course, while walk-

ers may walk for as long as they like on the school’s track. Same-day registration is $15 for adult walkers and $10 for those 12 and younger. The fee for runners is $20 in advance and $5 extra on the day of the event. Funds raised help develop Parkinson’s-related programs in the Lansing area and across Michigan. Orloff said some of the funds from the inaugural race went toward a recent daylong Parkinson’s symposium held at the Lansing Center. “This is not just fund-raising. This is bringing people together from all over the state – this is a celebration of people with Parkinson’s,” Orloff said. In addition to sponsors, event t-shirts will also feature the names of those for whom people are walking in honor or in memory.

fun. It’s not like any show that’s ever been written. Theater-wise, I’m lucky to get three hours of play every night.” Payne grew up in Buffalo, N.Y. She attended Niagara University for college and spent summers at New York University studying dance. Both actresses said they’ve been able to draw on their own life experiences to enrich their respective characters. Frankie and Mary, for example, eventually go their separate ways. “I’ve had a rollercoaster ride of relationships. Some have been great, and some were not so great,” Tremel said. “I’ve definitely used the not-so-great ones when it comes to portraying the character.” Touring and the life of an actor is “not a stable life,” she continued, and definitely takes its toll on relationships.

When you think heart, think Sparrow. Eldon did.

“The last time I saw my granddaughter she asked me, ‘Da-da, can I see where you had your heart surgery? I showed her, and she wanted to know if it hurt. I said, ‘No,’” explained Eldon Watson. Not surprising since Sparrow is now home to the region’s leading heart team: expert doctors and nurses using the most innovative technology to provide life-saving care.

September 25, 2011

Eldon is now back to his favorite routine–weekly visits Eldon Watson, 79 Proud grandfather, exercise enthusiast Valve replacement surgery, pacemaker installed Performed by cardiovascular surgeon, Ara K. Pridjian, MD; and electrophysiologist Ranjan Thakur, MD
