In The News: Albion and Marshall school districts hold community forum Members of the Marshall and Albion communities came together March 18 to hear a presentation on the cooperative agreement between Albion Public Schools and Marshall Public Schools and how things are going nine months later. The presentation, held in the auditorium at Albion High School, was given by Albion Superintendent Jerri-Lynn Williams-Harper and Marshall Superintendent Dr. Randy Davis. “This (decision) was very hard, very painful,” Williams-Harper said, but added that the agreement was in the best interest of her students and “really changed the course of history.” See story on page 26

Word on the Street What do you think happened to flight 370? Editor’s Corner

Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has been missing since it vanished from radar on March 8. Numerous theories abound about what happened to the Boeing 777 and the 239 people aboard.

by John Hendler I read an interesting piece online a while back on thehistoryplace.com titled Nazis March into the Rhineland, that recounts how, in March 1935, Hitler decided that Germany would openly defy the military limitations set by the Treaty of Versailles and rearm. Hitler waited to see what the reactions of France and Great Britain would be, but there were none, Hitler surmised because the two nations didn’t have the stomachs to respond militarily. Still, the move caused concern and Hitler, a couple months later announced: “Germany wants peace. None of us mean to threaten anybody.” Hitler even went as so far to draw up a 13-point peace plan with all sorts of assurances. A year later, three battalions of the German Army crossed the Rhine River into the Rhineland, a demilitarized area extending west to the French border. Again no action was taken against the Nazis and again Hitler made promises: “We have no territorial demands to make in Europe. Germany will never break the peace.” In March 1938 came the invasion of Austria and the Anschluss and then Czechoslovakia on the grounds that Sudetenland Germans just inside the border were being threatened and mistreated. The west appeased, all in the name of keeping the peace. The rest, they say, is history, as World War II wasn’t very far behind. Now, we have Russian President Vladimir Putin and the annexation of Crimea, following a “referendum” that had 97 percent of citizens voting to leave Ukraine and be a part of Russia. Of course, this vote took place with armed Russian forces in the street. The United States and the European Union are right to not recognize the referendum and to condemn Russia, but words alone mean nothing to Putin. Sanctions imposed last week by President Obama on 11 Russians and Ukrainians of Putin’s inner circle were laughed off by Putin and his government and flicked away like one would flick a mosquito off their arms during a summer picnic. The only thing that gets a bully’s attention like Putin is strength and that has been sorely lacking from both the United States and the EU. The new sanctions announced late last week by Obama against another 20 high-level Russian officials and associates of Putin as well as a bank may have a bit more teeth, but expect that to have little influence on Putin’s decision making. Now, more than ever, the United States needs to show strength and resolve and back up our eastern European allies with more than just lip service to keep Putin from finding a new “excuse” to save Russians from eastern Ukraine. So far, Putin has viewed America’s inaction (Iran, Syria, Crimea) as a green light for him to do anything he wants without reprisal. Until next week, may the good news be yours.

"It’s down. It’s lost at sea. There is no conspiracy here.”

"I believe it ran out of fuel and crashed in the ocean. I think eventually they will find the black boxes, but the plane is probably completely destroyed.”

Letters

Marshall heroes showing their true colors To the Editor: What wonderful police officers, firefighters, EMTs and I hope I didn’t leave anyone out that we have here in Marshall. In January, I went to get the mail after that terrible storm. It was way below zero (which I had no business going and getting the mail in that temperature.) I got the mail after going through six feet of snow and on the way back I fell and couldn’t get up. People kept going by but the people of the community would not stop and help.

They couldn’t help but see me. Thank God above I had my cell phone on me and called 911. They arrived right away with the rescue truck and the ambulance. They got me into the house and made sure I was all right. If I had not had my cell phone on me I would have died that day in the cold weather. In February, I paid a company with my debit card their employee took my numbers off my debit card and spent the rest. Our wonderful police department and Sgt.

Kris Ambrose investigated and found who it was, where they lived and their phone number. He issued a warrant for their arrest last week. Thank you Sgt. Ambrose, I got all my money back and the company even gave me back my payment. On March 4, I knew my friend was in trouble. She did not answer her home phone or cell phone. I went do there and I could not get in. I had the key to her house but couldn’t get pass the locked storm door. I called 911 again

and this time Officer Andrew Groeneveld and Officer Sean Brown showed up and undid the storm door and I used my key to get in. It was too late; she was gone. I was so upset for my friend of 20 years. Officer Groeneveld and Officer Brown were so compassionate and caring that day that it sure helped in my hour of need. Once an officer had to help me when I was going home and ran out of gas...

Veterans Corner Helping veterans get their compensation I have been helping veterans with all kinds of different problems and needs and have just started my ninth year this month. As a Post Service Officer for the American Legion and belonging to Post 79 in Marshall, I do my PSO duties for them. I do almost Don Weberling anything I can that Post 79 Service Officer is for veterans. American Legion I help veterans get enrolled in VA healthcare. Usually for veterans that do not qualify for

Disability Compensation Claims that are Service-Connected to the time they served. Service-Connected is something that a veteran suffers from, that happened while in the military, either physical or mental. When you raise your hand, you swear to defend the Constitution of the United States of America and to defend it against all enemies, foreign and domestic and to discharge all duties assigned to you, so help you God. You now belong to the military of your country, 24-7, even while on leave from your duties. With that oath from you comes the duty and promise

from the government of the United States to take care of your medical needs incurred while serving. I also help veterans with Disability Compensation Claims. If those claims are approved and the veteran receives compensation, he or she is automatically placed in the VA Medical System and receives free care for the condition they claimed. Until next time, keep your flag flying high and often. I am always available to discuss any problems you have to try and help you: 269-2759440.

Serving the Community A special thank you, from local business owner Nancy Foust, to all of the downtown businesses and community for their ongoing support in maintaining and growing her business over the last 20 plus years. “I would particularly like to thank REALTOR and local resident, Lori Sturdevant, and the office of Rosemary Davis, REALTORS for all of their hard work, dedication and hospitality in assisting to positively close this rewarding chapter in my life through the sale of this building. Throughout this process I feel Lori has been very professional, enthusiastic and supportive, going above and beyond in order to look out for my best interests and ensuring every detail was taken care of.” “It has been wonderful to serve the local community … I appreciate the opportunity to have been associated with so many wonderful people over the years.” In addition, Nancy wishes to thank Zarzuela Restaurant owner Richard Kane, for his support and continued success. REALTOR Lori Sturdevant also expresses her gratitude for the experience. “I would personally like to thank Nancy for allowing myself and Rosemary Davis, REALTORS the opportunity to not only list/sell her business but to develop our personal relationship and share this exciting time and transition with her … I have enjoyed working with Nancy and I want to wish her well on her next journey in life.” Further, Lori feels that as a community, we are incredibly fortunate to have caring business owners, such as Nancy, who provide growth, support and service for our community. This experience is bitter-sweet for Nancy, while she has loved being immensely involved within the community throughout the years she knows it’s time for the next phase. She is excited to open a new chapter in her life, called Retirement, with a focus on family and friends. Nancy will be sharing her time between Spain and Marshall. So when you see Nancy, wish her well!

“I knew I needed stitches after a young horse jolted back and hit me in the face. What I didn’t know was where I’d get the best care. My biggest fear was being left with a big scar. But that all changed when I went to Bronson Battle Creek. I didn’t wait long. And everyone in that emergency department was so comforting and kind. My doctor was fantastic, too. He made me laugh when I needed it most, and my face healed up nicely. So thanks, Bronson, for making my bad day a whole lot better.” Talia Champlin, Battle Creek, Michigan, December 30, 2013

1st Annual Reuben Race 5K raises funds for Marshall’s Fountain Clinic

photo by John Hendler

The 1st Annual Reuben Race, sponsored by Pastrami Joe’s, was held March 15. The 5K run raised funds for Marshall’s Fountain Clinic. Pastrami Joe’s owners Jodi and John Lubis lead a pack of runners east on Mansion St. Approximately 100 people took part and this event, says Jodi Lubis, was held St. Patrick’s Day weekend to welcome spring and to get people thinking about the Oaklawn Hospitality Classic in mid-May. “John and I both are runners and we thought it would be more fun to have this event for the Fountain Clinic and it’s more in line with our lifestyle versus the Reuben Eating Contest (that used to be held the same day as the Marshall Blues Festival),” she said.

6th Annual Fred Weberling Bowling Classic results JEDDS won the 6th Annual Fred Weberling Classic tournament held on Friday, March 14 at Marshall Lanes. The team shot a 3,744 handicap total. The members and their actual scores are: Janet Rodgers 553, Eric Lewallen 580, Doug Crispyn 595, David Schaum 748 and Scott Rodgers 755. David Schaum’s series included a 300 game. “The event is becoming a real blast,” said tournament director Sue Hutchings. “The teams are a mixture of our current league bowlers, people who belonged to teams in the past and friends of Fred’s family who only bowl just this once a year.” The field was full with 16 teams. Also cashing in the top five were: The Woodpeckers with 3,647 (Ken Zuehlke 602, Dave Biggs 603, J.D. Stealy 724, Shannon Damron 672 and Jason Stealy 584), Damron Brothers Asphalt with 3592 (Ted Damron 532, Fred Damron 565, Dylan Damron 557,

Mike Johnston 521 and Rich Dopp 642, Mixed Up with 3,577 (Tim Woods 640, Janet Woods 591, Doug Russell 526, Beck Harden 588 and Debbie Jarvis 488) , Marshall Lanes Pro Shop with 3,575 (Steve Murphy 673, Jim Schaum 695, Bob Hutchings 681, Anthony Brown 697 and Mark Moon 619), and Melon Heads with 3,568 (Hubie Kelly, Jr. 494, Austin Zapata 489, Hubert Kelly 532, Brad Morgan 674 and Justin VanArman 671. As not everyone is a “certified” bowler, the tournament also paid the last place team and the next to last place team. Earning those distinctions were Les Get Strikes with 3,280 (Leslie O’Dell 315, Gary King 356, Annette Castle 296, Tom Gruber 559 and Billy Woodworth 431) and The WEBS with 3,296 (Don Weberling 387, Tony Weberling 476, Eric Weberling 583, Brian Weberling 510 and David Weberling 419.
