Zumba fundraiser on Aug. 24 to help local boy When Erin Wheeler of Kalamazoo read the Facebook page, Hearts for Landyn J Titus, she knew she had to do something to help the 5-yearold boy from Battle Creek who was recovering from critical injuries sustained from a dirt bike accident last month. “Reading his story really touched me,” said Wheeler, who is a Zumba instructor and has been part of many charity events. “I wanted to step up and help.

MHS athletic trainer Dana Nichol Dana Nichol has always been a sports fan. Growing up in central Pennsylvania between Pittsburgh and State College, Nichol (pronounced the same way as the five-cent coin), an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan, ran track in high school and also was involved in competitive cheerleading.

Ten Years of STUFF For KIDS

or 10 years, Kids ‘N’ Stuff Children’s Museum has been a place where children can explore and grow. At the root of all its programs, is the idea of having fun while learning. “The families who have enjoyed time together at Kids ‘N’ Stuff make the work of the last 10 years worth it all,” says director Kathy Fischer. Sebastine Ocampo is one of thousands of children who have visited the downtown Albion site during the last decade. He is figuring out how, by combining different colored plastic blocks, light can change color. For details on the Aug. 23 anniversary celebration, see story on page 21

Word on the Street How serious a concern is distracted driving?

Editor’s Corner

It has been determined that receiving a text message takes a driver’s eyes from the road for almost five seconds, the equivalent of driving the length of a football field. With advancements in technology, today’s drivers face more distractions than ever.

by John Hendler In preparation of my getting my driver’s license when I was 16, all I had to do was drive something like 20 hours with my father as passenger. There he would be in the passenger seat, his arms extended to the dashboard bracing for impact while yelling at me almost non-stop. Talk about distracted driving. In 1980, aside from my father’s conniptions, my only distraction seemed to be the crackling sound of the AM radio that, on a good day, might pick up one or two stations. How boring life was for the driver of yesteryear: no cell phones, no texting, no CDs, no iPods. No phone, no lights, no motor cars, not a single luxury, like Robinson Crusoe, as primitive as can be. Yes, I was in a motor car, but I couldn’t get that line out of the closing credits to Gilligan’s Island out of my head. Sorry. Anyway, last week, as part of my daughter’s Segment 1 driver’s training, I and other parents were invited to hear about distracted driving from Kim Haylett, who lives in Bronson. Haylett goes around the region talking about distracted driving and how only a couple seconds of inattention can bring about tragedy; tragedy Haylett knows firsthand. In October 2008, her daughter, Sarah Haylett-Jones, a deputy for the Monroe County (Ind.) Sheriff’s Department was struck and killed by a teen driver who was texting behind the wheel. In addition to hearing a mother’s emotional plea to the new drivers and parents to not use cell phones in the car, Haylett showed a documentary titled The Last Text that examines the consequences of texting and driving, with testimonials from those who had been injured or had lost loved ones. It is one of the most sobering videos you’ll ever watch and one that should be watched by each and every driver, regardless of age. The website offers some statistics: In 2010, 3,092 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver and an estimated additional 416,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver. Drivers who use hand-held devices are four times more likely to get into crashes. Driving while using a cell phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37 percent. We always hear about the senseless tragedies that take people’s lives, especially our young drivers. Maybe, through a vigilant, heightened sense of awareness, the tragedy of distracted driving will be a thing of the past. Until next week, may the good news be yours.

“I think texting is a huge concern because your eyes aren’t watching the road. Even when talking on the phone you are not paying full attention to driving.”

“Using the phone takes your mind off driving and your not focusing on the road.”

“Using the phone and radio in the car distracts you from what you should be doing, which is paying attention to the road.”

Cindy Taylor, Battle Creek

Rosemary Salisbury, Coldwater

Kaitlynn Hansen, Battle Creek

“I don’t text when I drive. My four kids don’t text when they drive either.”

“I hate it when I see people texting and weaving all over the road.”

“Yes, texting is a concern, but I am more concerned with those eating while driving or putting on their makeup.”

Wind turbines: should they be built in Marshall Twp.? To the Editor: Recently, there has been considerable discussion and publicity surrounding erecting wind turbines in Calhoun County. Wind turbines have been erected in numerous locations throughout the USA with both positive as well as disastrous results.

The Marshall Township Board of Trustees will consider a zoning ordinance amendment that would allow construction of wind turbines in the township at its regular meeting Monday, Aug. 20. Many township residents have expressed concern

about the wind turbines because of the negative impact the turbines could have on the township’s residential environment. I encourage all Marshall Twp. residents to attend this board meeting and become knowledgeable of the impact these turbines could have on

the value of their home site. Wind turbines may have a place in our energy program, but should they be built in the proximity of residential home sites in Marshall Twp.? Wanda Cascarelli, Marshall Twp.

Support Eldon Vincent for Marshall mayor in Nov. To the Editor: I am writing to support the candidacy of Eldon Vincent for Marshall mayor this November. Eldon and his wife Carrie own and operate the Garden Theater Shops next to the Cronin Building on W. Michigan Avenue where he operates Yippee Tax Service, his CPA office and his law office. They also own and operate Vincent’s Mainstreet Mercantile in the same building. They are true

stakeholders in our community. Eldon Vincent wants to see the community establish priorities that include fiscal responsibility and tax base enhancement by seeing the city create an environment that will attract small businesses that are the heart and soul of an economy to our community. Eldon Vincent believes in: • Maintaining police and fire protection, not by building new buildings, but with

staffing with professionals to keep our community a safe place to live and work. • Reaching true consensus on responsible development and insuring neighborhood integrity throughout the community as a whole. • Living within our means. Being considerate of the community as a whole. It is more important than in any other time in remembered community history that we as a community come together and put aside

the differences that are divisive. To insure keeping the community that we all know and love, we need leadership that will move us forward. Eldon Vincent is that man. If you don’t know Eldon, please drop by his offices at the Garden Theater Shops on the second Thursday of the month from 8-9 a.m. to visit with Eldon and talk with him yourself. Craig K. Kempf, Marshall

Thanks for support of library’s Summer Reading Program To the Editor: As another Summer Reading Program comes to a close, I would like to thank the many people in the community who support the Marshall District Library. This summer more than 900 people of all ages participated in the library’s “Dream Big – Read!” program, tracking their reading and receiving prizes. From early literacy

storytimes and Glow in the Dark t-shirt painting to Dream Interpretation and Hemingway Travelogues, more than 1,000 people attended the Marshall District Library’s 50 educational and recreational programs this summer. The importance of summer reading has been demonstrated repeatedly in a variety of research studies. Children who read over the summer do

much better in school when it resumes in the fall. Adults that participate in the summer reading program model positive habits and essential skills to children. We are delighted that so many people chose to visit us and participate. We are also very thankful to the many local businesses that donated funds and prizes to encourage library visitors to keep reading all summer long.

The Marshall District Library is always happy to receive suggestions and feedback from all of the members of the Library District. Please let us know what we can do to help you continue to explore, discover and grow. Angela Semifero, Library Director
