City of Marshall to face lawsuit The city of Marshall may have its day in court to defend its April 1 decision to pass the Oaklawn Hospital Campus Overlay District Ordinance due to a lawsuit that was recently filed against it by the Marshall Neighborhood Association, Michigan Historic Preservation Network and 16 Marshall residents. “All of us, plaintiffs and our whole town, have been harmed by the recent actions of our elected representatives,” said Marshall Neighborhood Association President Martin Overhiser. “They did not consider taxpayer concerns, city finances, the city’s Master Plan or state laws...when they gave the hospital a large blank check zoning area.” City Attorney Paul Beardslee will be handling the case, with help from the Detroit-based law firm Miller Canfield. “My belief is the ordinance was properly adopted, and I think once facts and laws are considered, the court will reach the same conclusion,” Beardslee said.

Word on the Street What was your reaction to the Boston Marathon bombings?

Editor’s Corner

The April 15 multiple bombings near the finish line of the Boston Marathon left three dead and hundreds injured as the act of terror brought back memories of 9/11, sparking outrage and disbelief around the nation. What’s your reaction to the bombings?

by John Hendler I wrote this in the hours following the bombings at the Boston Marathon: We see it every year here in Marshall, and on May 18, we will see it once again during the Oaklawn Hospitality Classic: throngs of family, friends and community members cheering and offering encouragement to runners young and old along the route of the 10K, 5K and Fun Run as well as at the finish line. For even the well conditioned athlete or just the novice, the scene and atmosphere is uplifting and gives those runners that little extra to make it the finish. Take that atmosphere and the crowds and multiply it by 20-fold and now you’re on Boylston Street at the finish line of the Boston Marathon April 15, where the cheering and encouragement quickly turned to panic and chaos following two bomb blasts that left runners and spectators literally running for their lives in the first of its kind attack since 9/11. Over the past decade, we as a nation have become accustomed to hearing about the near misses of terrorist attacks: The Shoe Bomber, The Underwear Bomber, the bomb found in a car in Times Square, etc. In all. some 30 bomb plots have been disrupted since 9/11. Thwarting those attacks kept us safe but also created a bubble of complacency that was shattered on Monday afternoon and proved once again how vulnerable we are and how unavoidable these acts of terror are. Equally as shocking of the attack itself is how inevitable an attack like this was or future attacks will be. It’s not a question of if, but rather a question of when. To those that don’t value human life or the human spirit, they will eventually find a way, despite the best and heroic efforts of law enforcement officials to keep us safe. Sadly, the horror of Boston is just another example of a world gone mad. But, we must persevere; we must forge on. There is more good than bad in this world and we must not allow scumbag terrorists to take over our lives and force us into hiding. And where, exactly, do we hide? Where is truly safe? A movie theater? A college campus? A shopping mall? An elementary school? A sporting event? That’s what they want - to paralyze us with fear. But, we, as a nation must not and cannot allow this small minority of savages to rule over us and to set the rules. There is so much good out there and we must remain resolute in not letting these crazies take our country from us. We must remain united in taking the fight to them, by standing together and celebrating all that is good in the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Until next week, may the good news be yours.

“I was surprised and shocked that something like this could happen. People come from all over the world for this event.”

“We should find the cowards who did this and put them in a room with the victim’s family and let them work it out. That’s how justice should be served.”

“We, as a people, are hurting. We have to get back to focusing on community and family. Those emotionally lost people results in a loss of life and injuries that could have been prevented. We need to connect.”

Jim Longhurst, Marshall

Kelley Fast, Quincy

Bob Foltz, Chicago

“My reaction was shock and a real sense of sadness. I hope that people recover. I am confident in the nation and our people’s resilience. Let’s find whoever is responsible for this.”

“I was shocked that there are people or a group out there that will go to this extreme to hurt innocent people. I have a lack of understanding and comprehension of why they would do that.”

“My first reaction was that it is getting to be a scarier world to live in, but as horrible as events like this are, they also serve to strengthen cohesion and resolve for our country. I guess that’s the silver lining.”

Marshall, our neighborhoods are suffering

To the Editor: Having a hospital that takes care of our needs, right here, in our city is so wonderful and having it employ a thousand people is excellent. Yet, as I drive around Marshall, I have noticed two things; that the blocks from W. Michigan Ave. to Mansion St., there by the hospital, is one parking lot after another; and that there are buildings overshadowing beautiful neighborhood houses. The thing that strikes me

is, we, as a community are a small town. We are not Battle Creek or Kalamazoo, or even Grand Rapids. How can we use so much of our space for parking lots, especially when it’s in a residential area? Aren’t there any large spaces away from homes? There has been much discussion on the Oaklawn Hospital campus situation, even having shopping in the hospital. Who would ever think of shopping at a hospital? I cannot fathom ever

saying, “I’m going to the hospital to shop.” Hospitals are for helping people with their well-being and healing. I believe in democracy. I believe that people need to be included in the decisions that affect them. From where I stand, maybe I’m wrong, but does it seem like things are a little out of balance? To me, Democracy means compromise. Has there been any real compromise? There seems to be a lot of hard

feelings. Is it due to a lack of compromise? I own a home on the other side of town. But I have noticed the not too pleasant commercial changes taking place in that area. Maybe, it’s just me. In the end, I think this situation has turned into a “winner-takes-all” outcome. And our neighborhoods are suffering for it. Whitney Jonas, Marshall

The best solution for the hospital to go forward To the Editor: Seldom do we take time to appreciate and thank our public servants, even when we heartily agree with their performance. I especially strongly feel we owe our mayor and City Council gratitude and plaudits for their Oaklawn Hospital zoning decision. Perhaps my perspective is somewhat biased, having 38 years of management experience with State Farm Insurance and having recently terminated a tenure of 26 years as a member of the board of trustees of Oaklawn. Large organizations, especially, cannot survive unless they plan, not only for today or tomorrow, but for five, 10 and 20 years in advance. The larger the project and financial obligation,

generally, the longer-range the plan must be. Otherwise, by the time the need becomes desperate, it is too late to seek plan approval. Oaklawn’s Board of Trustees deliberated its long-range needs for several years, considering other options, finding the overlay to be the only practical and most cost efficient solution for planning for its prospective current and future growth. Long overdue parking shortages can now be addressed. As a volunteer at the information desk at Oaklawn, the most frequent comments I hear are, “Thank heavens for the parking ramp (and valet service).” and “When will you get some more parking close to Oaklawn?”

Want to voice your opinion?

Our family has had our youngest son, 13 grandchildren and three greatchildren delivered at Oaklawn, let alone having received other medical and surgical services. We cannot imagine having to have gone elsewhere for our needs. To limit Oaklawn’s future growth options is to warrant its closure. We might all agree that would be catastrophic to Marshall. I truly empathize with those residents surrounding Oaklawn. But, I strongly feel this is the best and only valid solution for the hospital to go forward.

Girls soccer winning streak at 6 Marshall now 6-0 after win at Charlotte; Game vs. Lakeview rescheduled The Marshall High School girls varsity soccer team, following its 3-0 win at Charlotte, improved its record to 6-0 on the season. Scoring for Marshall at Charlotte were Chelsea Tobias, Brianna Kalisz and katie Blank. On April 13 Marshall won the annual Sportsfest by defeating Pennfield in a shootout, 2-0 ( penalty kicks by Lauren Feasel and Sydney Reichenbaugh) and defeating Parma Western in the final, 3-0. In the final, goals were scored by Kalisz, Tobias and Reichenbaugh. The April 17 game at Lakeview was stopped just prior to halftime due to thunderstorms with the score 0-0. No make up date had been announced at press time. This week, Marshall hosts Gull Lake on Monday, April 22; plays at Battle Creek Central on April 24; and hosts Vicksburg on April 26.

MHS softball just comes up short in opener Loses in 10 innings to Gull Lake, 5-4; Game two cut short due to darkness By JOHN HENDLER News Editor Looking to improve on last season’s double-digit win total, Marshall High School varsity softball coach Anthony Miller must have been encouraged by what he saw after his team jumped out ahead of Gull Lake 3-1 in the first inning of the season opener on April 16. That contest would take 10 innings before Gull Lake came back to win 54 and the second game was cut short due to darkness with Marshall trailing 4-2 after five innings. Still, Miller was very positive after his team’s first outing of the season. All in all, we had two well-played games,” said Miller. “We can definitely build off of these losses and continue in a positive direction.” In game one, Marshall pitcher Katie Jarvis allowed four earned runs and had 10 strikeouts. Leading hitters for Marshall included Lauren Long, with a single, double and RBI ; Jarvis, Morgan Benham and Ashley Kent each collected a base hit. In game two, pitcher Morgan Benham allowed three earned runs and struck out two. Marshall: Lauren Long, Megan Drumm, and Jarvis each had singles with Jarvis also driving in both Marshall runs.Rikka Helle had a double.

MHS baseball swept by Gull Lake in home opener The Marshall High School varsity baseball team dropped its home opener doubleheader versus Gull Lake on April 16 by scores of 11-1 and 2-0. In game one, Ben Walton drove in Marshall’s only run with an RBI single. Mitch Konkle and Dan Welke had two hits each. In game two, Marshall pitcher John Dorosh limited Gull Lake to one earned run over five innings. Chase Bennett then came in and pitched two innings of scoreless relief. Alex Walton had Marshall’s lone hit of the second game. “Overall, Gull Lake created some breaks for themselves in the first game and took advantage like good teams do,” said Marshall coach Trevor Kelly. “We would have liked to have been a little more disciplined in game two at the plate but still have a lot of positive takeaways. This was a good early season test to see what we have and I think we are moving in the right direction.”
