Dog alerts homeowner to early a.m. fire By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — A city man escaped from his buning home by climbing onto the roof and jumping to the ground with his dog in tow. The homeowner, Richard Henderson, said the dog may have saved his life by waking him up after the fire started around 2:30 a.m. Dec. 20, fire and police officials said. The blaze at 206 E. Riverside Drive began in the baement and caused an estimated $70,000 in damages, fire officials said. Henderson said he was sleeping in his upstairs bedroom when the dog awakened him, authorities said. He grabbed his dog and climbed through a window and onto a porch roof, then jumped to the ground, A city police officer was the first on the scene and found both man and dog uninjured. The cause of the fire had not been determined,, fire Chief Bill Siegel said. Several area fire departments responded to the blaze. Firefighters were at the scene for about four hours.

Assault arrest

A 43-year-old city resident was arrested on a domestic assault charge after smashing his wife’s cell phone with a hammer during an altercation on Dec. 19. The dispute began during the morning at a residence on Cedar Run Court, police reports said. The alleged victim, 42, said her husband had recently discovered she was seeing someone else. He grabbed her arm and put his forearm across her throat while taking her cell phone, she claimed. He then smashed the phone with a hammer on the kitchen table, she said. Two officers noticed scratch marks on the woman’s wrist and redness on her throat, although she refused medical attention, the reports said. The man was lodged in the Ingham County Jail.

Alumni mingle with current science students By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — You could forgive Austin Donohoe if he told you that high school is, like, so yesterday. After all, Donohoe graduated from Williamston High School (WHS) in 2009 and studies mechanical engineering at EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla. Yet, there he was, strolling past a huge spread of food at WHS on Dec. 17. “It’s fun to come back and give some of the teachers a hard time for old times sake,” said Donohoe, 20, one of nearly

three dozen alumni who attended the annual Science Turkey Feast at WHS. Now in its 10th year, the pre-Christmas lunch is a chance for alumni who took upper-level science courses to mingle with current science students. As hosts, the current students bring food for their alumni guests who are home from college during the holiday break. The college students share their experiences and answer questions so that current students know what to expect after they graduate. “Everybody is doing some learning,” said Bill Struck, a chemistry teacher who said he borrowed the idea from an Okemos teacher a decade ago.

“Our students, as well as our teachers, learn from what our graduates have experienced.” The event helps build a sense of community among past and present students, Struck said. And knowing what to expect gives current high school students a better chance for success when they head off to college themselves, he said. The alumni spend the whole day at school, speaking to students in various science classes. “We’re encouraged to answer questions about our college experiences honestly,” Donohoe said. Other guests at this year’s lunch were

2010 graduates Leanne Sellinger and Chad Rhiness, and 2008 grad Bryan Kendall. The holiday lunch is a chance to catch up with friends and former teachers, they said. “Only now, I don’t know anyone,” said Kendall, a computer science major at the University of Michigan. College is a very different experience than the structured world of high school, they said, and time management is key. “It’s very hard to learn how to study in college,” Sellinger said. “You have so much free time. You’re only in class for four hours a day, and you have all this time on your hands.”

Opinions mixed on school bus cameras

Cameras put on four buses By KEN PALMER

WILLIAMSTON — Just days after installing security cameras on four of its buses, the school district used them to resolve a theft case. After a student removed something from another student’s backpack, officials checked the recorded images and saw the incident happen, Superintendent Narda Murphy said. “We did a review, and sure enough, there it was,”

Murphy said. The camera systems were bought used from the Okemos school district. And for Murphy and other school officials, it was a long time coming. “A lot of research shows that when they are present, fewer incidents occur,” Murphy said. “If something happens on a bus, we don’t have to rely on one student’s word over another student’s word.” But at least one parent said he isn’t so sure that cameras on buses is such a good thing. “It’s kind of creepy to know that there are cameras trained on our kids on the buses, and that people can

look through (the images) at any given time,” said Chad Munce, who has two children in the school system. “It just reminds me of the book, ‘1984,’ Now, there’s going to be a Big Brother watching on our kids’ buses. It doesn’t seem justifiable.” Parents were notified of the change in a short announcement about three weeks ago. Only the transportation department and district administrators would view the recordings, the announcement said. Murphy said she understands Munce’s concerns. But the images will be viewed only when the bus

driver suspects something happened, she said. “It really is just about following up on an incident,” she said. “(The recordings) are saved for a short period of time, then discarded.” Michigan school districts have been using cameras on school buses for years, although state education officials said they don’t track that information. Okemos recently bought four new school buses and sold some of its used cameras to Williamston at “a very good price,” Murphy said.. New school buses come equipped with cameras, she said. The district, which regu-

larly operates 16 buses, randomly decided to put the cameras on the four lowestnumbered buses, she said. The district will try to add more cameras over time as its budget allows, she said. Transportation Supervisor Pam VanSickler said each of the four buses has three cameras. One points toward the back of the bus, another shoots forward from the rear of the bus, while a third captures a full view of the door and the driver, she said. Munce said he doesn’t see a need for the cameras and believes they arose form the district’s decision to combine students from all grade levels on each route.

“It’s not like we have metal detectors at the entrances to the schools,” he said. “It just seems like kind of a drastic step to me.” The district combined grade levels on its buses about three years ago, primarily to save money, Murphy said. “It’s working incredibly well, and I think that’s a testament to our bus drivers,” she said. As for the cameras, she noted that the district installed cameras at the entrances to its buildings as part of the last bond issue. “The high school has them throughout the building,” she said. “It’s just not unusual at all.”

non-emergency calls beyond the 80-hour mark for $45 per hour. Officials from both townships seemed pleased with their new partnership. “The process went rather quickly and very smoothly,” Williamstown Supervisor Mickey Martin said. “We started talking to them about this a year ago, and they had been kind of gearing up for it mentally.” Williamstown Township and a dozen other rural townships are affected by Ingham County Sheriff’s Office cutbacks that take effect Jan. 1. The cutbacks will leave the sheriff with minimal staff to cover the county. Township officials solicited bids for police service after voters passed an assessment proposal on Nov. 2. A committee reviewed five bids and concluded that Meridian’s best fit the township’s needs.

The Williamstown Township board approved the contract in a special meeting Dec. 21. The Meridian board had approved it the week before. For now, at least, homeowners will pay a flat fee of $150 and business owners $250 for police service. The assessment is expected to generate about $300,000 a year. The township got a boost on Dec. 14, when the Ingham County Board of Commissioners earmarked $122,000 to help Williamstown pay for police services. The offer requires that Meridian give precedence to qualified, laid-off Ingham County deputies when it hires officers to fulfill the Williamstown contract. Meridian agreed to that contingency as part of its contract with Williamstown, officials said. Meridian plans to hire one officer as a result

of the contract, they said. The county money will allow Williamstown to buy more patrol time. But township officials say they plan to keep money in reserve to cover unexpected expenses. “This is our first year at it, and we’re going to need to have a reserve,” Martin said. The contract caps the amount Williamstown pays for service beyond the basic 80 hours at $22,500 per quarter, Martin said. “I don’t anticipate us needing to go over that amount,” she said. Township officials have met with Meridian police to discuss the lay of the land and point out the intersections with higher accident rates, Martin said. To minimize any confusion, officials also plan to add signs informing drivers of the arrangement, she said. The signs would say some-

thing like, “Police protection provided jointly by Williamstown Township and Meridian Township.” Martin said. In its Dec. 14 vote, the county board also earmarked $97,000 for Alaiedon Township if it completes a deal with the county for police protection. The board had previously offered to

help any of the 13 rural township that chose to contract with the county for police protection. Of the 13 rural townships, only Williamstown passed a ballot proposal to pay for police services in the November general election. Alaiedon voters narrowly defeated the ballot question.

Williamstown, Meridian finalize police contract

WILLIAMSTOWN TWP. — It used to be the county sheriff. But come Jan. 1, you’ll be much more likely to see a Meridian Township Police Department vehicle on township roads. That’s because the neighboring townships have finalized a two-year contract for Meridian to provide police coverage in Williamstown Township. Meridian will provide 80 hours of patrols for a base fee of $171,700 per year, with an automatic renewal option. The department also will respond to emergency and

WILLIAMSTON — The show is titled “Minimal” — and the participating Second Monday Artists carry that philosophy forward in their work. The public is invited to meet artists at a reception from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 8 at Gracie’s Place, 151 S. Putnam St. The exhibit is open for viewing during business hours from Jan. 5-26. While the artistry, impact and technique in their paintings, photography and sculpture is impressive, Ron Cook, Lee J. and Nancy Kronenberg, Gail Noren and Melinda Pope have the ability to show the underlying structures, the “bones” of the subject, with minimal embellishment. Cook’s large canvasses demand attention with bold shapes and colors. “I enjoy being outdoors at any time of year,” said Cook, “and am drawn to subjects in the environment that exhibit strong abstract patterns. “I am especially drawn to the underlying structure of manmade as well as natural objects and enjoy the random patterns that occur spontaneously when materials are subjected to the wind and weather.” Award-winning artists and husband-and-wife team Lee and Nancy Kronenberg were recently honored by having their art selected for display at the Michigan Governor’s residence through fall 2011. At Gracie’s Place, their work will feature strong textures in Nancy’s paintings and pleasing and unusual forms in Lee’s metal sculpture. Said Nancy, “Finding the images and then developing the art takes me on a journey where there is no time or space — only the art.” Lee said that “the most exciting experience occurs when I dream about a sculpture and then begin to build on that dream.” Noren’s paintings resonate with the joy and energy that is part of Noren’s ebullient personality. Pope uses light and shadow in her photography to offer unexpected visions of the ordinary.

Get holiday break ideas at library Need a new book to curl up with during the holiday break? The Capital Area District Library (CADL) has some great suggestions for you! Whether you’re into romances, fantasy and science fiction, suspenseful thrillers or entertaining picture books to share with your little ones, we have you covered. You can request our free e-mail newsletters and get recommendations delivered right to your inbox. To sign up, visit and click on “Email Newsletters” on the left side of the page. This month, the CADL staff took a look back at 2010 and compiled a fantastic list of our favorite books, movies and music. Some even have reviews. If you click on the “Books, Movies + Music” link at and follow it to “2010 CADL Staff Picks,” you will find a listing of our favorite releases of the past year, plus links to some of the notable “Best” lists. Some clear-cut book favorites include Holly Black’s “White Cat,” “Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand” by Helen Simonson, “Faithful Place“ by Tana French (the most mentioned mystery among

Library notes Julie Chrisinske

staff), and “The Passage” by Justin Cronin. Be sure to check the staff picks for best movies and music, too. My personal favorite? Hands-down, it is Natalie Merchant’s doublealbum “Leave Your Sleep.” After waiting seven years since her last release, I can’t stop listening to this remarkable recording in which Merchant, the former lead singer of 10,000 Maniacs, set other people’s poetry to music: poems from Victorian England and Jazz Age America, from e. e. cummings and Mother Goose. It may sound strange, but it totally works. For this monster work, Merchant called on specialists like the Klezmatics, the Irish band Lunasa, Wynton Marsalis, the Fairfield Four gospel singers, the jazz-funk jam band Medeski, Martin & Wood and members of the New York Philharmonic, eventually involving more than 100 musicians.

It’s an outstanding record that I can’t recommend highly enough. Upcoming events include the Stitchin’ Time Knitting Group at 6 p.m. Jan. 4 at 6 p.m., and our Drop-in Lego Club on Thursday, Jan. 6 after school until 4 p.m. Note that all CADL locations will be closed for the holidays on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.

PORTLAND — The Lady Hornets were unable to overcome a 31-point attack by Portland’s Taylor Roe and Sarah Trierweller in a CAAC White contest, losing to the Raiders 38-28 on Dec. 17. It was the first loss of the season for the Hornets. Williamston fell behind 7-2 in the first quarter. Jordan Waters scored the only first-quarter basket for the Hornets. Williamston cut

the Portland lead to four points early in the second quarter when Lauren Epple hit a three-pointer. But Portland put together an 11-0 run to go up 21-5. Emily Nemeth hit a three-pointer late in the second quarter. Portland held a 21-8 halftime lead. Williamston pulled to within eight points of the Raiders late in the third quarter on a basket by Ashley Villarreal and a three-point shot by Kortney Smith, but that was as close

as the Hornets would get. Late in the fourth quarter, Epple hit her second three pointer and Nemeth stole a Portland pass and drove the court, making a basket, drawing a foul and making the free throw. Epple scored six points. Villarreal had five points. Kassie Kimichik, Smith and Waters each scored three points. The loss gave Williamston a 5-1 record. The Hornets are 1-1 in the CAAC White.

Hornets make comeback By BILL McLEOD

“We’re going to get there. It’s a process and this is a step in the right direction.” – Williamston coach Rod Palmer that was grabbed by Westphal, who flipped it back to Schultz for an easy layup. After baskets by each team, VanRiper scored with an assist from Adam Goodman to give the Raiders a 30-29 lead going into the fourth quarter. Midway through that quarter, Tyler Watters hit a pair of free throws to put the Hornets up 35-34. A Monette three-point shot gave Williamston a four-point lead. Connor Roe’s long two-pointer cut the Williamston lead to 40-39 with less than two minutes left. Williamston scored six unanswered points, capped off with a long inbound pass from Justin Cane to Schultz for an uncontested layup. “We battled, we stuck to our game plan and the kids played hard, but we had a few key turnovers down the stretch,” Portland coach Dave Pettit said. “Against a team like Williamston you have to take care of the ball on every possession because their game plan is to get it and go. Give them easy baskets and you’re in trouble.” Monette scored 10 points. Cain and Schultz scored eight points apiece. Watters had six points and Nik Jump scored five points. VanRiper had 10 rebounds to go with his eight points. Krausz led Portland with 13 points. Zach Goodman scored 10 points.

PORTLAND -— The Williamston boys basketball squad overcame an eight-point second-quarter deficit to beat CAAC Gold Division rival Portland 48-40 on Dec. 17. “I was really impressed with Portland. They are well coached, they played hard, they are really gritty,” Williamston coach Rod Palmer said. “But give a lot of credit to our kids. They battled back. They just gritted it out.” Several of the top players for Williamston were on the football team that made it to the state final, minimizing the amount of time they had to practice before the hoops season. “I don’t think people understand what it takes out of the guys when they finished the kind of run they just did,” Palmer said. “We are struggling offensively; we really haven’t worked on it a lot. We’re going to get there. It’s a process and this is a step in the right direction” After battling to a 10-10 tie in the first quarter, Portland pulled out to a 21-13 lead at halftime. Dylan Monette scored Williamston’s only basket in the second quarter, hitting a three-pointer. Jared Krausz scored five points in the Portland run. Hunter VanRiper scored six points for Portland in the second quarter. The Hornets started to comeback early in the third quarter. Monette cut the Portland lead to five points when he deflected a Raider pass. Ethan Wirth grabbed the loose ball and flipped it to Monette for an uncontested layup. John Westphal cut the Raider lead to one point when he hit a jumper from the top of the key. Westphal made the next basket with a drive to the hoop with an assist from Monette. Dylan Schultz gave the Hornets a 27-26 lead when he tipped a Raider pass
