In The News: Albion Board of Education votes to close high school Albion Public Schools made a “courageous” decision to save its community-centered school, while offering through a regional partnership the best education possible for their high school students, noted Albion Public Schools Superintendent Jerri-Lynn Williams-Harper and Marshall Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Randy Davis. On May 14, the Albion Board of Education considered options on how to restructure its K-12 model that would be affordable and of high quality. After deciding on a K-8 model, the Albion district extended an invitation for Marshall Public Schools to enter into a cooperative agreement to serve the Albion community as their new high school destination. Marshall Public Schools will hold a community forum on the matter on May 22 at 6 p.m. in the Marshall Middle School Auditorium. See story on page 6

Appreciation of a

NATION

Former State Farm property threatened by foreclosure The former State Farm property on East Dr. in Marshall went into foreclosure April 2 by the Calhoun County Treasurer’s Office due to delinquent taxes. The County Treasurer’s Office is now working with a receiver out of New Mexico to determine the future of the building. “We foreclosed on the property for non-payment of (the 2010) real estate property taxes,” Calhoun County Treasurer Christine Schauer said, adding that the title and escrow companies who own the building, Golden Rule, LLC and Willis Asset Management, LLC of New Mexico, have also been delinquent on their taxes for 2011 and 2012. A court in New Mexico will determine if the property will remain as an asset of Golden Rule, LLC, or if it will revert to the county for foreclosure. See story on page 14

Veterans Roundtable held at Marshall High School A Veterans Roundtable was held May 15 in the Marshall High School Media Center at which Marshall residents who fought in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan spoke to small groups about their military experience. Each group of 12 students and one or two veterans spent 20-25 minutes together discussing veterans’ responses to the questions which had been submitted earlier by the students. See story on page 40

Marshall’s Michigan Week is May 16-22. Events include the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast, the Manufacturers Luncheon, Education Day, Tourism/Hospitality Day, Heritage Day and much more. We asked these six people what they love about Marshall and Michigan.

by John Hendler The education landscape in Marshall will be undergoing some rather significant changes in the coming months and over the next few years. For the past few weeks, we have reported on the reconfiguration of Marshall Public Schools’ three elementary schools, culminating in a three-year transition plan that will put the elementaries in a two-tiered model beginning with the 2015-16 school year. About a month ago, the ad-visor&chronicle ran a piece by MPS Superintendent Dr. Randy Davis on the possibility that Albion Public Schools would close its high school for budgetary reasons and become a K-8 district with Marshall High School and the Marshall Alternative High School becoming the destination for high school students from Albion. On May 14, the Albion Board of Education voted to close Albion High School and invited Marshall to consider being the destination of Albion’s high school students. MPS will hold a community forum on Wednesday, May 22 at 6 p.m. at the Marshall Middle School Auditorium to hear what local citizens have to say about the matter. The Battle Creek Enquirer ’s May 16 headline, Race an issue for Albion, Marshall left a bad taste in my mouth. Are we back in the 60s and 70s? Are expectations for this cooperative so low already? I’m sure there are some people out there in both communities that are close-minded about the coming changes and are expecting everything to fall apart. But, I believe that we must follow the lead of our school leaders and expect the best for our young people. Isn’t that what we, as parents, also hope for when it comes to our kids? In this issue, Davis and Albion Superintendent JerriLynn Williams-Harper indicated that this matter is a winwin for both school districts and that they are asking our government leaders to set aside funds to support professional development for teachers and administrators outside of existing contract expectations on differentiated instruction, curriculum diagnostics and working with diversity in developing better understanding. Also, preliminary planning has been put forth in organizing a Youth Summit in the summer for high schoolaged student leaders from both communities to develop a shared vision of what our schools could become in this new cooperative. The piece concluded by stating that this potential collaboration and partnership between Albion and Marshall could create a “diverse educational environment” for students from both communities to learn and grow. I believe this can only help better prepare our kids for life in the real world, where they will meet and interact with people from all walks of life whether they go to college or into the workforce. We need to stay positive and optimistic and expect the best of our young people; that way, great things can happen - for them and for us. Until next week, may the good news be yours.

Re-think the elementary school three-year transition To the Editor: I have attended almost every Marshall Public Schools Board of Education meeting since the elementary reconfiguration was first mentioned. Unfortunately, I missed the most recent on May 6 where Dr. Randy Davis gave his recommendations to the Board. As a concerned parent of a current Marshall elementary student (and another scheduled to start kindergarten in 2015), I have several comments and concerns with the proposed three-year plan of transition. I understand that there are serious budget issues in our school district, as well as

many others. Although I’m not happy that teachers may be losing their jobs and class sizes will be increasing, I understand the need to make that change. What I don’t understand are Phases 2 and 3 of the proposed transition. I don’t understand how reorganizing the grades in the current three elementary schools will save any money. I foresee a community of upset parents and children with all the chaos and cost of changing the current configuration. Additionally, there will be a transportation nightmare for those families with multiple children attending differ-

ent elementary schools. Why spend $50,000 plus to move around all the classrooms, materials, furniture, etc? Why move the Shamrock Center to Walters when it was recently redesigned specifically for the Gordon Elementary site? I simply don’t comprehend spending a significant amount of money in order to possibly save money. And if the decline in enrollment continues, the longterm plan seems to favor closing one of the three buildings. How does a twotiered model work when and if that happens? Will students again have to be shuf-

fled around? I agree budget cuts are necessary. However, please re-think the three-year proposed plan and focus on our young children and their best interests. When I think of my current first grader and how she loves her school, her teachers and friends...I can’t imagine her having to change to a whole new building, with new teachers, administrators and support staff and possibly without some of her close friends as well. Salena McDonald, Marshall

Thanks to Marshall for supporting Great Escape To the Editor: As the theatre producer, I want to lead a sustained round of applause and throw a stage full of roses to the cast and crew of Great Escape Stage Company’s recent production of On Golden Pond. From Fran Rauth’s nuanced and lovely staging to Mike Kinter and Georgia Marsh’s heartwarming and lived-in performances as Norman and Ethel Thayer to the rest of the talented

and dedicated cast and backstage helpers, area audiences heartily embraced the show and ticket sales exceeded our expectations. For those audience members who weren’t able to get in - my apologies. Hopefully you’ll come back and join our loyal patrons in seeing another production this year. And for those who participated in our ticket stub drawing, Paula Haybach was the winner of four tickets to the next show at Great

Escape. My sincerest thanks to the community of Marshall, as well as the downtown merchants, for making Great Escape continually feel right at home on Main Street. Randy Lake, Marshall

It’s time for rational thinking by city council members To the Editor: Where is the money coming from for hospital expansions? What will the hospital and City Council do when historic Marshall is

an empty stage of faded memories? I don’t think any council member can be right in their actions if he or she does not consider their effects on historic Marshall when making their

choices. It’s time for objective rational thinking by council members. Emerson Shelby, Marshall

Marshall drops league tourney opener in 2 OT 1-0 loss to Stevensville-Lakeshore sets up home game vs. Loy Norrix May 20

photos by John Hendler

Above: Marshall’s Chelsea Tobias tries to get past two Stevensville-Lakeshore defenders during the first overtime May 15 in the first round of the SMAC tournament. Lakeshore scored midway through the second overtime to win in sudden death, 1-0. The loss dropped Marshall’s season record to 13-2-2. Marshall’s starting goalkeeper Kelsey Postema sat out the May 15 game due to a knee injury sustained in the final moments versus Jackson on May 11, where she had to be carried off the field by coach Adrian Harkey and the Jackson trainer, above right. Monica Lubis, below left, took Postema’s place in goal. Below center: Defender Sara Heidenreich. Below right: Anyah Preston defends a Lakeshore player at midfield. Marshall’s second round game will be at home on Monday, May 20 versus Loy Norrix.

Crazy Legs Soccer June 8-9 Fundraiser in memory of Max Buzzell By ALEC ADKINS MHS Class of 2010

Morgan Benham takes the pitch in the seventh inning of game one versus Sturgis on May 14.

Right: Max Buzzell, who passed away last June. Far right: Max’s best friend Alec Adkins and Max’s sister, Morgan Buzzell. The Crazy Legs Soccer Tournament will raise funds to start a scholarship in Max’s name.

Hello soccer players, soccer fans and loved ones of Max Buzzell. In June 2012, my best friend, Max Buzzell, lost his life to an unfortunate accident at the young age of 20. Max and I played soccer together for many years; we played for the Marshall Travel Team and then, The Kingdom soccer club in Kalamazoo and then onto the Marshall High School team, graduating in 2010. Max was a true team player, and a great friend to many. Several of you may know his family; father John, mother Helen and older sister Morgan. They are one of the remarkable families I have had the privilege of knowing and being a part of and so I would like to pay tribute to Max by honoring him with a soccer tournament. This tournament is a nonprofit fundraiser that will raise money to start a scholarship in Max’s name, in which Helen will be initiating. We also will

be donating money to the Marshall Verona soccer fields. On June 8-9, we are holding the Crazy Legs Soccer Tournament, a 3v3 soccer tournament, at Marshall Verona Soccer fields. This is an open soccer tournament for all skill levels from ages U6 to adults. Fees are $120.00 per team for U6-U7 and $180.00 for U8-adults. Teams consist of at least 6 players per team and games are 2 - twelve minute halves. This is a fast paced game that will focus on building team skills, communication, passing and of course shooting! Boys/Men will be playing on June 8th and Girls/Women will be playing on June 9th. For registration and tournament rules please contact us by email. Deadline for registration is May 30 but we will accept teams up to registration on Friday June 7 if space is available. We are selling shirts to players and fans to assist with this tournament/scholarship that can be ordered before the tournament or purchased the

weekend of the tournament. The shirts are $12 and come in red with yellow writing and blue with white writing. To place an order before the tournament, contact us by email, the shirts can be seen on our Facebook page; Crazylegssoccer. This will be a fun soccer weekend as we are planning for other soccer activities and games. So please get a team for fun, or for competition to remember a great friend. Max had several friends and also had a love of sailing so if your skills are not on the soccer field and you would like to help with the tournament, we are glad to have you as a volunteer or if you would like to sponsor to help with costs of supplies for the tournament or towards the scholarship please contact us by our email. Email to crazylegssoccer@rocketmail.com. For updates please go to the Facebook page Crazylegssoccer.
