In The News: Where they were when JFK was shot Nov. 22, 1963 is a date that shocked the world and shook the United States to its core when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. For the 50th anniversary of that tragic day in American history, the ad-visor&chronicle asked Marshall residents John Carroll, Susan Collins, Georgia Marsh, John Marsh, Walt Nichols, Bruce Smith, Mark Stuart and Lois Zuehlke where they were the day JFK was shot.

SHARING the bounty in thanksgiving

Marshall Fire to have a new home in 2015 At its Nov. 18 meeting, the Marshall City Council took the first steps to build the Marshall Fire Department a new home. The council accepted the recommendation to purchase property from Golden Rule, LLC of New Mexico for property on East Michigan Ave. (parking lot space of the east-side of the old State Farm property), a 1.8 acre site for $25,000. “I think that is very reasonable,” said City Manager Tom Tarkiewicz. “The site is about 30 seconds from the downtown, driving at normal speed, which is a very quick response to get into the city. If you look at where the other townships are located (who respond to fires through a mutual aid agreement), this is geographically in a very good spot.” See story on page 12

Power back on for most following weekend storms Sunday, Nov. 17 brought in storms and winds exceeding 70 mph, causing power outages to more 10,000 homes and businesses and property damage to many areas throughout Calhoun County and throughout the state as 296,000 Consumers Energy electric customers were affected. By midweek more than 250,000 customers from Sunday’s storm had power returned and the remaining 41,900 were expected to have service restored by Friday or Saturday. See story on page 32

Bringing green to the scene in Homer On Nov 20, the Homer Totem titled “Growing Community Awareness” made from recycled tires was permanently installed at the corner of M-99 and Hamilton St. by the Homer Middle/High School. “The totem project hopes to inspire local artists and creative community members to create public art from discarded tires,” said artist Sabine LeDieu, who has been working with the Art Center of Battle Creek to create community totem projects. “We want to be able to showcase this county’s creative personality and support environmental re-use.” See story on page 43

Heart, commitment, determination propel MHS swimmers to state meet Although the weather outside feels like and looks like winter, there is still one Marshall High School sports team competing in their fall sport, where practices began in summer. What started back on Aug. 14 will come to an end this weekend Nov. 2223 as eight swimmers-Jessica Bush, Jen Diver, Nina Hendler, Taylor Karns, Monica Lubis, Anna Sitar, Brooklyn Tobias and Jane Turner represent MHS at the Division 3 state meet in Holland. The swimmers have swam literally hundreds of thousands of yards over the past three and a half months, with coach Dave Karns estimating that each swimmer has covered approximately 40,000 yards per week.

T

hanksgiving is a time when people are reminded to pause in their busyness and reflect on gratitude for awhile. One large group of people for whom many others are grateful are those who donate food and money to this area’s food pantries. Food insecurity is greater than ever this year and LeAnne Blight, left, manager of the Bread of Life food pantry at Crossroads Church, and Harriet Carroll, President of MACS, Inc., work with many others to provide as much food as possible to those in need.

Word on the Street

Where were you when John F. Kennedy was shot? Editor’s Corner

Nov. 22 marked 50 years since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas. Most people remember where they were when they got the news that the nation’s 34th president was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald.

by John Hendler Back in 1990, while working in Miami as a traffic reporter, one of my coworkers was a guy named Dave Mitchell, who upon our first meeting told me that his claim to fame was that he was one of the last people to touch John F. Kennedy before he was killed in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. As the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death approached, I got in touch with Dave to ask him about that day 50 years ago and he was gracious enough to share his story. Dave, then a 16-year-old high school sophomore, decided to skip school to be at Love Field so he could see the President and Mrs. Kennedy. He got there so early, he told me, that he was literally, the only one there. No police, no Secret Service, nobody but me,” he said as he just waited for nearly three hours while a crowd of close to 3,000 eventually people showed up. “At about 11:15 a.m. Air Force 2 landed with Vice President Johnson and a number of dignitaries aboard,” said Dave. “About five minutes later, the presidential plane landed...By this time, all the people behind me were pushing up against the fence line. I was at the far end of the line, standing right in front of where they had parked the presidential limo. There was only one lady to my right. We had been chatting for over two hours, getting more excited to see JFK with each passing minute. We had discussed the possibility of the president coming over to the fence line and shaking hands, but thought the odds of that actually happening were about 50-50.” After getting off Air Force One, the Kennedys made their way to the fence line to begin shaking hands. “The lady next to me and I both smiled,” remembers Dave. “We knew that as we stood in front of the limo that there was a very good chance we'd get to shake hands with him. They worked their way down the fence line, from our left to our right. There were hands and arms everywhere, and try as I might, I could not reach his hand. Then he shook the hand of the lady to my right and as he withdrew his hand, I managed to touch him on the back of the hand between his thumb and index finger. At that moment the secret service agents turned both of them away from the fence line and put them into the limo.” As the presidential motorcade drove away, Dave waited for his father to pick him up and then they stopped for lunch. But Dave wasn’t particularly hungry and instead went to a neighboring bookstore where he noticed the owners of the store huddled over a radio. “I asked what was going on and the man said the president and the governor had been shot,” said Dave. “I stayed and listened to the radio for just a moment and then decided to run down the street and tell my dad. I envisioned myself bursting into the barbecue joint like a news anchor delivering a bulletin, shouting ‘The president's been shot!’ However, when I rushed in the door, they already had a radio going full blast giving all the details. My father, a big man (325 pounds), had just gotten his barbecue, but said he'd was so shaken he didn't think he could eat. This was a little surprising since he was always a big eater and I never saw him lose his appetite in my life. On top of that, he was a staunch Republican and didn't really like Kennedy that much. He told me, however, it didn't matter, Republican or Democrat, he was our president and he'd been shot in our city.” On the drive home, and because the car radio was broken, Dave and his father stopped at a store to hear the news that the president was dead. “We left the store and went home where my dad dropped me off and I spent the rest of the afternoon watching the unfolding events on television like many other Americans did that day,” said Dave. Dave said that while watching the coverage, a sobering thought entered into his mind that still stays with him to this day: “I realized that I was one of the last individuals on this earth to make physical contact with John F. Kennedy.” Until next week, may the good news be yours.

"I heard it on the radio when I was on my way to pick up one of my attendants to go to my rehearsal dinner for my wedding, which was the next day.”

"I was a junior in high school. I was getting settled into my advanced English class with my favorite teacher. It couldn’t have been a better place to get that horrible news. We spent the hour talking about how we felt.”

"I was working in Albion and someone called me and told me the president was killed. It was a shock, but we had to keep working.”

"On the day of the assassination, I was living in Denver. After the announcement was made, the children were released from school. My kids didn’t understand why I was in tears.”

"I was 11. I was at Wattles Park Elementary and the teacher announced that we would all be going home because the president had been assassinated. The room got real quiet. When I got home, my mom was crying.”

"I was in high school algebra class at Harper Creek and it was announced over the speaker that the president had been shot. Everyone was speechless.”

Columns Working on drainage district deficit situation By CHRISTINEKOSMOWSKI Calhoun County Water Resources Commissioner Dear residents of Calhoun County, I was elected as the Calhoun County Water Resources Commissioner in November 2012 and took office in January. Upon taking office, I learned that a large number of drainage districts that I am charged to manage were operating in severe deficits as a result of work performed on the drains prior to my taking office. This is an unfortunate and distressing situation that by law I am required to immediately address. Also by state statute, any county fund in a deficit must submit a deficit elimination plan to the state of Michigan. Without such a plan, Calhoun County would be at risk of losing its state aid funding, a consequence that

would be devastating to the county and its citizens. There is only one way to cure the deficit situation for each of the drainage districts and that is through the assessment process. I take the power and responsibility of assessing citizens very seriously and consider it to be the most difficult part of my position. However, it is a necessary part and a requirement of the Drain Code given the troubling situation confronting me upon taking office. Those that live within a county drainage district are responsible for all of the costs of any maintenance performed. Each drainage district is responsible for the costs of work done on that particular drain. Much maintenance was performed but not paid for prior to my entering office and that is the source of the deficits. Depending on the amount of the deficit, some assessments may be for one, two, three or four years. Most are within the one to two year timeframe. The assessments are intended to

bring the drainage districts into a sound financial status going forward. Furthermore, this assessment will ultimately save taxpayers money by allowing for the implementation of an ongoing drain and infrastructure maintenance program that will avoid much more costly catastrophic failures of the drainage infrastructure in the future. I consider it an honor and privilege to serve the citizens of Calhoun County and will always perform my duties to the best of my abilities. At times, I may be required to make difficult decisions and unfortunately I was faced with one of the most difficult upon discovering these deficits when I took office. I encourage interested citizens to contact my office with any questions regarding the deficit elimination plan and the assessments mentioned above. My office is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment on Fridays. You can reach me at 269-781-0790 or visit the Calhoun County website at www.calhouncountymi.gov.
