In The News: ‘The best kind of busy’: Harrington family gets ready to adopt child from China What started as an innocent April Fools’ joke led to the adoption of two special needs children for one Marshall family. A few years back, Tiffiny Harrington had joked to her children that instead of sponsoring a child in a foreign country through Bethany Christian Services, she and her husband, E.J. were actually adopting a child. With five kids already at home, she figured that the children would not be so keen with another kid joining the family. “Instead, they were thrilled,” said Harrington. “When I told the kids that I was joking, they were devastated. But that got my husband and I to start talking about adopting. Maybe our kids were on to something.” See story on page 42

Fountain Clinic receives $20,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield grant Marshall’s Fountain Clinic, a free clinic that serves Calhoun County’s uninsured residents, received a $20,000 safety net grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan on Oct. 21 designed to help uninsured people get access to health care and dental treatment. The grant is part of more than $1 million in grants awarded by BCBSM for the ninth consecutive year to safety net clinics across Michigan to help more uninsured people get treatment and care. See story on page 21

Marshall City Council approves two tax abatements At its Oct. 21 meeting, Marshall City Council approved two tax abatements for Michigan Kitchen Distributors and Tenneco, Inc. “Any assistance we can provide to local businesses, particularly those with long duration, is appropriate,” said Mayor Jim Dyer. Michigan Kitchen Distributors invested $264,000 in personal property and Tenneco Inc. invested $6.83 million in personal property for a new production line. Industries within the city have had roughly $16.9 million in new growth this calendar year. “This particular calendar year has been especially good for us as far as abatements go,” said Marshall Area Economic Development Alliance Industrial Manager Mike Hindenach. “...Most of that is automotive related, but I’ve always set a goal to try and get roughly $7 million a year and this is just blowing that away. So, it’s been a very good year for manufacturing here.” See story on page 4

Marengo Bridge replacement underway A nearly 90-year-old bridge in Marengo Twp. is being replaced thanks to a federal grant for primary roads that Calhoun County received this fall. “It’s a wonderful addition to the community,” said Blaine VanSickle, county commissioner for District 6. “It was an old narrow bridge that was hardly two lane passable. I’m glad we are getting some bridge work done from our county road commission.” The bridge, located on 23 Mile Rd., has a completion date of mid-November. See story on page 32

New Marshall Performing Arts Center opens Hundreds of local residents turned out Oct. 1920 for the grand opening of the new Marshall High School Auditorium, known as the Marshall Performing Arts Center.

Word on the Street Would you want to know if you were pre-disposed for disease?

Editor’s Corner

An online company offers genetic testing for as low as $99 to find out people’s likelihood of developing certain health conditions or diseases such as some cancers, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, etc. Would you want the test?

by John Hendler With another Halloween upon us, I got to thinking about my Halloweens as a child and you know what? Sure, Halloween was a great way to get a lot of free candy, but I never remembered it being such a huge “holiday.” Even though the next day the calendar would turn to November, the thermometer in Miami still thought it was August as many Halloweens were well above 80 degrees. Hot and humid didn’t go very well with the crude, rudimentary costumes of the early to mid 70s. If you’re over a certain age, you know what I’m talking about; those plastic masks that hugged your face and could also have served as a suffocation device, that is until the lone, thin, stretchy rubber bandtype string in the back snapped off either side of the mask that would leave a red mark on the side of your face. I think one year, after stapling the string to my mask nearly 10 times only to have it break and pinch my face again and again, I finally gave up and went as a welt. The times the mask stayed on, and if I didn’t suffocate, I’d get to maybe three houses before the sweat building up under the mask would drip into my eyes, forcing me to remove the mask. One year, dressed as Superman (I think I was Superman five years in a row, having made a bet in second grade with some kid best known for stapling his tongue), my eyes were burning so badly from the sweat, that I had trouble seeing where I was going and knocked over two little kids both dressed as H.R Pufnstuf, boots and all. The kids, maybe 5 or 6 (I was 10) started to cry as I started giving them my candy just to shut them up before their mom, thought of in many circles to be psychotic, caught wind of what I had done. I wasn’t quick enough doling out the candy as their mom came running once she got within earshot of the crying. As a parent now myself, I could understand how one could be upset over the sight she saw: Her two Pufnstufs (boots and all) sprawled out on the blistering sidewalk as a kid twice their age, appearing to be crying, is screaming at them to take the candy and shut up. Well, the Halloween gods must have been smiling on me that day, because the mom, after scooping up her two Pufnstufs walked away without a word. Fortunately for me, she had dressed as a mime (instead of Witchiepoo), but the look she gave me made me realize that I’d better watch myself next Halloween. As they say, that’s another story for another time. Have a safe and fun Halloween and until next week, may the good news be yours.

"I think it’s a great resource. I’m not sure I would want to do it at this point in my life.”

"Yes, but only if the information would allow me to change my behavior and increase my chance of avoiding a particular illness.”

"I think it would be beneficial, especially with treatable conditions. Any heads up on a condition would be helpful.”

"I would not go out of my way to do it, but if I had a reason to believe I was pre-disposed, then I would consider it.”

"Certain things I’d want to know about and certain things I wouldn’t want to know about. If you knew you had the potential for a certain condition, you wouldn’t live life.”

"I probably would not want to know. I’m living my life the healthiest I can. Whatever is going to happen will happen.”

Give our Albion children more educational opportunities To the Editor: A major reorganization has taken place in the Albion Public Schools that will give our children more educational opportunities leading to fruitful lives as productive citizens. With the changes, the district’s goal is to become one of the top K-8 programs in the state. Our school needs the community’s financial help. Dramatic downsizing in the last several years has led grades K-8 to a single building, which was built nearly 50 years ago. It needs a new roof, air-handling system, windows, fire-safety sprin-

klers, and electrical wiring – nothing fancy, just necessary. These renovations would increase the safety and quality of the learning environment for our children. In order to continue moving forward, the district is asking that voters approve 3.5 mils for six years in a sinking fund that can be drawn upon for capital improvements. This would be an additional annual tax of $175 for a house valued at $50,000, a little less than $15 per month. Currently, the Albion school district has the lowest millage taxation of the 13 school districts in Calhoun County (We

are still paying off a bond from 1995). Should the sinking fund millage pass, we would be ranked 6/13, in the middle of the pack. Downsizing has been hard on the community, whose citizens remember the enrollment and vitality of the district when they were in school. The good news is that preliminary enrollment numbers are up 10 percent from what was projected in the transition to K-8. Students and teachers are now together in the community’s common school building – together in proximity and in spirit. Whatever your position, we

urge you to go out to your normal polling place and vote your conscience on Tuesday, Nov. 5. We hope that you will vote to help Albion’s children in the school district’s fresh start as K-8, from good to great.

Law that helps people...Unclaimed property By GEORGE M. STRANDER Ingram County Court Administrator and Probate Register

First in a series. “Finders keepers, losers weepers.” While this mantra may apply to the quarter someone finds on the street, it does not apply to unclaimed bank accounts, securities, checks or other like assets a bank or

business may have. As with every other state, Michigan has a law governing the reporting, transfer (or escheat), and return or reimbursement of certain unclaimed assets; this law is called the Michigan Uniform Unclaimed Property Act (or UPA). Because of the UPA, even though you have lost track of an asset it does not necessarily mean you have lost it. Ab a n d on ed p r op er t y a n d st a t e cu st od y: The first tenet of the UPA is that certain types of abandoned property are to be transferred, or escheated, to the custody of the State of Michi-

gan. When an asset will be considered abandoned will differ depending on the type of property and what entity is holding the property. Holders of property include entities like banks, stock brokers or businesses. If an asset is considered abandoned, it is escheatable to the state if one or more other things about the apparent owner of the asset are true: (1) The last known address of the apparent owner is in Michigan (according to the holder of the asset); Column continued to next page...

Osborn also had an interception. Right: Running back Jerome Washington gained 108 yards on 14 carries, made seven tackles and had an interception.

Above left: Danny Welke (2), Drew Maisner and Madison Hautau during the Star Spangled Banner.

MHS volleyball comes back to beat Lakeview in five sets The Marshall High School varsity volleyball team, after dropping the first set at home versus Lakeview on Oct. 23, came back to win in five sets, capturing the fifth and deciding set, 16-14. "This was the hardest-fought match we have had this year,” said coach John Miller. “Lakeview had a chance to clinch the conference outright and we knew coming in that they would be ready to do so. That is what we prepared for all week.Win or lose, our standing in conference would not change, so I told the girls, 'Let's cause some havoc at the top.’” Among the highlights: Grace Crawford had 17 kills, 18 digs and four aces; Logan Kiessling had 16 kills and 16 digs; Kaylie Bates had 38 assists and 13 digs; and Brooke Mason had 19 digs. The team’s overall record improved to 23-11-1 and 3-4 in the conference (6th place). photos by John Hendler

Cross-country teams race at regional today Girls race at 1 p.m., boys at 1:40 p.m. at Ella Sharp Park in Jackson Girls team places 5th at SMAC meet The Marshall High School girls cross-country team placed fifth at the Oct. 19 SMAC league meet. Marshall was led by freshman Rachel Schoepke, who had a time of 20:15 and was 19th overall. Lauren Feasel was 22nd overall with a time of 20:24. She was followed by Abbey Ufkes (28th, 20:38); Anyah Preston (32nd, 20:52); Maya Williams (35th, 21:08); Tiffany Gross (56th, 22:06); and Molly Blanchard (74th, 23:14). “I was happy with how we ran,” said coach Steve Wissink. “Lauren had been sick earlier in the week so she didn't run as well as we both thought she would, but all but two runners ran personal records. Rachel Schoepke continues to improve each week, and to make All League in the Big 16 is quite an accomplishment for a freshman, and Anyah Preston ran her best race in two years of cross-country.” Wissink said the team is right “on the bubble” to make it back to the state meet. “We've had another

great year with the girls bringing home six trophies from invitationals,” he said. “But we go into every season with the same goal and expectation - get back to the state championship meet... If we don't make it, we'll know we gave it everything we had, and be happy with the effort and the fact that we represented our school and our town in spectacular fashion for another year.”

Boys team places 8th at SMAC meet The Marshall High School boys cross-country team placed eighth at the Oct. 19 SMAC league meet. Marshall was led by Kurt Swaton who was named AllConference, placing 14th with a time of 16:47. He was followed by Weston Herman (44th, 17:43); Chris Bell (55th, 18:03); Calvin Smith (59th, 18:07); Elijah BalliSolis (61st, 18:15); Jontaj Wallace (78th, 18:59); and Christian Kalisz (79th, 19:03). “We saw some great competition at the meet,” said coach Mary Hovarter. “The boys raced very well in this field, setting many personal best times.”
