In The News:

Real estate market showing signs of life Besides the onset of warm weather, flowers in bloom and America’s pastime once again taking the field, spring is also a time when the real estate market comes to life and this spring seems to be more lively than in recent years as potential buyers and current homeowners are looking to refinance and take advantage of record-low interest rates. Realtor Matt Davis, of Rosemary Davis Realtors in Marshall, says he’s “really excited” by the current real estate climate. “What I’m seeing in the market is great,” said Davis. “We’re seeing people coming back into the (buyer’s) market; we’re seeing really low inventories.” See story on page 14

Fighting daily to find the words; Local event to raise funds for apraxia Marshall High School graduates Hailey Casarez Rollo and her husband Randy, want to do what’s best to help their daughter Miah, 3, overcome Childhood Apraxia of Speech. To support her in her efforts, they are holding an event May 26 at Riverside Pub in Marshall to raise funds for their team, Miah Speaks. “We are looking forward to the event and looking for people to come out and support this cause,” Hailey Rollo said. “There is no cure for apraxia, but that doesn’t mean that we have to be uninformed. Let’s spread awareness.” The Rollo family will be participating in a walk for apraxia on June 23 and all the proceeds raised will be given to the Apraxia Kids Foundation. See story on page 44

Kids ‘browbeat’ law enforcement during shooting competition For years, the kids in the Scholastic Clay Target Program have been competing throughout the region against other kids their age, but for the first time last Saturday, they took part in a unique competition – a competition against local law enforcement officials to see who would walk away with bragging rights. “Everyone is a winner today,” said SCTP President Larry Arbogast. “There were no ribbons or trophies, just bragging rights and what that means for these kids is that they can shoot against anybody. It’s a confidence booster, actually.” The event was held at Centerline Gun Club in Bellevue and drew 62 kids from the SCTP “Fudd Dusters Shotgun Sporting Team” and 30 law enforcement officials from the Calhoun County Office of the Sheriff, the Department of Natural Resources and the Battle Creek Police Department. See story on page 42

Public can now text anonymous tips to Silent Observer The general public might already be aware that Calhoun County started the first Silent Observer tip line, 269-964-3888 in the world back in 1970. While that phone number still generates about 800 crime stopping tips per year locally, now, the public has more ways than ever to help put criminals behind bars and receive reward money in return. “We want to bring more awareness that there is more of a reporting process option,” said Battle Creek Area Chamber of Commerce Program and Events Manager Alicia Davis, “not only with the telephone number, but there’s the option of texting through your mobile phone and also through the web and there are free phone apps available.” See story on page 34

arshall’s celebration of Michigan Week 2012 began with Friday’s Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast. Today, Saturday, May 19, features the running of the Oaklawn Hospitality Classic and Tourism Day. With the Governor's Mansion as a backdrop, deciding which of the city’s museums to visit first are, from left, Monica Anderson, President and CEO of the Marshall Area Chamber of Commerce, Michigan Week host organization, Chamber Tourism Director Karen Hagerty and Michigan Week Honorary Co-chairs Harriet and John Carroll. Tourism Day offers an opportunity for residents and visitors to tour Marshall's historic treasures at no charge.


Word on the Street What do you like about living in Michigan? Marshall’s Michigan Week kicked off Friday and will run through May 23. What do you like about Michigan, and what makes it special?

Editor’s Corner by John Hendler I have been somebody’s Best Man just once and based on my performance, it’s not surprising that it was my one and only time. But, I have a chance to redeem myself as my dear friend Walsh, age 54 and a lifelong bachelor, is getting married this weekend. When he asked me to be his Best Man, I was honored, but part of me was equally excited as I would finally get the chance to exorcise the demons that have haunted me for the past 22 years. It was March 4, 1990 and the wedding was slated for early evening. After I arrived at the wedding sight and got the groom situated, I went into a back room of the facility (kind of like a sports bar) to watch the last holes of the Doral-Ryder golf tournament where Greg Norman forced a sudden death playoff after shooting an electrifying 62. He then chipped in for eagle on the first extra hole for the win. I was so engrossed in the golfing drama that I lost track of time, and after realizing I had only 10 minutes, ran down the hallway in my tux to get to the wedding on time. The problem was that this was one of those huge all-in-one wedding facilities and there were actually two other weddings taking place simultaneously. So, here I was, peeking my head in through the doors to find the right wedding. Naturally, I guessed wrong on the first two tries and finally found the right wedding behind door number three. Sweating profusely and out of breath, I was about to step off to do my duty when I realized that I didn’t have the ring. I told my stunned friend that I’d be right back and ran the length of the building to that back room to retrieve the ring that I’d left at the bar after showing it to the bartender. Despite the self-inflicted drama, the wedding began on time, and although sweaty and disheveled, I was able to make it through the ceremony. I should have quit while I was ahead. Prior to the reception, the DJ pulled me aside and told me that I would be the third to speak in toasting the bride and groom. “What are you talking about?” I asked wide-eyed as I realized at that very moment that I had forgotten all about the Best Man’s speech. To say it was a train wreck would be an understatement. Sweating as much as Albert Brooks did in Broadcast News and sporting that deer-in-the-headlights look, I gave my “speech”: Let’s hear it for the bride and groom! You happy guys look so happy, and I think I can speak for everyone here in telling you how happy we are for your happy day. I wish you a happy marriage and a happy life together. For the record, that was six mentions of the word “happy” in 20 seconds. I know this because I get to relive those 20 seconds of “happy” infamy every time I go visit my friend and his wife and their kids, and they laugh hysterically as it plays on their 70-inch screen, while I look at my bumbling self, albeit thinner and sporting more hair on my head. Talk about pouring salt on the wound. So, as Best Man for a second time, I am ready. I have had the speech written for a month and my plan is to arrive at least 60 minutes early and if it means waiting in an empty church, so be it. Hopefully, it will be the right wedding. Until next week, may the good news be yours.

“I love the four seasons most of the time. I like that we have a seasonal change. I wouldn’t like living somewhere that has the same climate all the time.”

“I’ve always lived in Michigan because of the diversity of the vegetation and crops that are grown here. I don’t have to go somewhere else to realize that.”

“You mean there is someplace else? Seriously though, I love the season changes, downhill skiing, ice fishing, camping, deer hunting. And that’s all in Michigan.”

Tonia Fortner, Prescott, Ariz.

Pat Field, Marshall

Randy Forman, Marshall

“You have lots of water. We have no water. Back home they are burning up as we speak. There have been four forest fires recently. The water is so good here and great to drink. As for Marshall, this town is a gem.”

“Michigan has something for everybody and no one else can brag about having water all around them.”

“I’ve lived here 60 years. I like the change in seasons and that there are lots of small towns. I enjoy sightseeing on my Harley along the lake lines and the UP. I enjoy hunting and fishing and all the beaches.”

Letters A very concise summary of the truth in wake up call To the Editor: My sincere thanks to Emerson Shelby for taking the time to express his opinion and submit the “Wake up call to your future” in the May 12 issue.

His note was a very concise summary of the truth, and I commend him for “putting forth” on such an important issue while many of us it back. Take note, he mentioned that both parties

are involved. Yes, there are those who will chide Emerson’s rhetoric. In order for them to sit up and take note, they will need Obama to physically hold a pistol to their

head. Thanks again, Emerson. Well done. Walter Bucki, Marshall

The Alternative Prom - the final chapter To the Editor: The Alternative Prom was held as planned May 12 and was very successful – all tickets were sold, no shameful dancing was done and no problems encountered. Kendal Jasienski and Morgan Olmstead should receive high marks for a job well done. Some people have made remarks about these girls, who were acting on the wishes of the majority of the senior class. As far as the comments made by an apparently misinformed person’s letter in

the May 5 ad-visor&chronicle, I can assure you the girls are outstanding students and girls of great moral character. My granddaughter was an honor student at Marshall High School all through her time there. Her father Joseph graduated from the welding tech program at Ferris State University and is a prototype tech at Tenneco research facility in Grass Lake. Her mom is a graduate for Western Michigan University and has a Master’s degree in education and teaches at Union

Correction: A submitted press release in the May 12 issue regarding the Marshall Civic Theater Youth’s upcoming production should have indicated there was no participation fee. Auditions for “Bye Bye Birdie” are May 22 and May 23 at 7 p.m. Clarification: Regarding the Marshall City Council meeting article in the May 12 edition, Oaklawn Hospital President and CEO Rob Covert said the hospital could accept proposed restrictions to its expansion plans on N. Prospect St. if the permitted building height is changed to 38 feet, and if Oaklawn is allowed to expand to High St.

City High School. Both parents supervise their children’s activities and support them 100 percent. As far as the person’s comments on May 5, I spent 43 years in industry as an industrial engineer, superintendent and the last 12 years as a customer service representative. As far as rules set forth by companies for the employees, almost 100 percent of these rules are established by the employees and the company. And most important – calling the graduates of high school in 2012 children is

ridiculous. The high school graduate can get married; choose their work or go to college; serve their country in time of war; and die for their country if required. Are these children? Absolutely not. They are young adults and what better place could they have gotten their high school education than Marshall High School? God bless Marshall High School and God bless the United States of America. Frank Jasienski, Marshall

Girls soccer drops league tourney opener Marshall win streak snapped at 10 after 2-1 OT loss to K-Zoo Central

photos by John Hendler

Marshall players, including Layla Harkey (21), watch Kalamazoo Central players celebrate after Ali Russo scored the game-winner in the eighth minute of overtime to give Central a 2-1 win in the first round of the SMAC tournament May 16. Trailing 1-0 in the final minutes of regulation, Harkey, right photo, tied the game (assist Katie Blank) with just over two minutes to play. The loss snapped Marshall’s 10-game winning streak. “it was a disappointing loss but I was very pleased with our play,” said Marshall coach Adrian Harkey. “We played hard, we played aggressive and we played good soccer. We did a nice job of passing the ball around and creating some good opportunities. Central is a good, tough, physical team and this was a good game for us to go through. This game will make us a better team.” The loss left Marshall’s record at 13-2-2. Marshall hosts Lakeview in the second round on Monday, May 21.

Sydney Reichenbaugh makes a run through the Kalamazoo Central defense late in the second half.

Brianna Kalisz scores her third goal versus Jackson on May 14 as Marshall won 3-2. Against Charlotte on May 12, Kalisz scored four goals in the 9-1 victory. Kalisz has 15 goals on the season.

Tense moment: Coach Adrian Harkey and Marshall players anxiously look on as Vicki Sell takes a shot during overtime versus Kalamazoo Central.

Katie Blank assisted on Marshall’s only goal versus Kalamazoo Central and also had an assist versus Charlotte on May 12.

Cooper, along with local business and community members, were recognized for their efforts to renovate the baseball field complex which included new drainage, a levelling of the playing surface, new fencing and a new scoreboard that was purchased thanks to Cooper, TEAM, Bill Welke’s umpire clinic, the Cronin Foundation and Marshall Public Schools. At right, Cooper is greeted by John Ramos, who caught the first pitch at home plate.

Paige Van Arman led Marshall with three hits, while Hannah Marshall, left, and Morgan Benham, right, each had two hits in the contest. The victory put Marshall’s record at 11-15 overall and 6-6 in divisional play. Marshall was defeated in game one, 5-3, as Emily Parks led Marshall with two singles. Elaine Ledbetter had a double and Katie Jarvis and VanArman each had a single.
