In The News: Focusing on Albion’s youth: Hundreds attend community forum An open dialogue about the Albion community and its youth took place Sept. 15 at Washington Gardner School in Albion. Dubbed “1,700 Hearts and Minds,” the forum, hosted by Albion College, and attended by about 200 residents, featured local leaders and child advocates sharing ideas about local programs, services and opportunities for Albion’s children and young adults. “Like a snake, we shed old skin and old ways and we become something new,” said Albion Superintendent Jerri-Lynn Williams-Harper about positive changes for the Albion school district. “ See story on page 10 Keep & Martinson Lumber celebrates 140 years in business Keep & Martinson Lumber, Inc. of Tekonsha is celebrating 140 years of being in business. Owner and operator Benjamin Johnson has chosen Saturday, Sept. 26 to invite customers and friends to come to 921 N. Washington St. in Tekonsha to help him celebrate, from 12-5 p.m., with a short ceremony at 2 p.m. See story on page 33 Are you prepared to be emergency-ready? September is National Preparedness Month, a nationwide effort to encourage Americans to take the necessary steps towards emergency preparedness. “People don’t think about, if their electricity is off for three days, what are they going to need?” said Durk Dunham, director of the Emergency Management Division for the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office. “What can be stored? How much money will they need? I want people to be asking questions like that of themselves. I want people to be thinking about that. There is no excuse for somebody that is living in a dwelling to not have an emergency plan.... You’d be surprised at the number of people that don’t have a plan or have never really thought about it.” See story on page 42 Scarecrow Fun Days comes to Marshall Four Marshall residents plan to resurrect a popular fall event “Scarecrow Fun Days” that will take place from Oct. 13-30 with decorations be displayed in downtown Marshall. “This event is an opportunity for our community to work together to draw visitors to our local area to enjoy the beautiful fall festivities in Marshall,” said organizer Joan Rapp. See story on page 11 Bellevue farm to participate in 2015 Alpaca Day Because it is the goal of the 4 Musketeers Alpaca Farm to put the alpaca in the public eye, each autumn the business participates in National Alpaca Farm Day, scheduled this year for Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the public to learn more about these gentle animals. See story on page 41 Local artists to be featured in Art Prize Kimber Thompson of Marshall will have her artwork displayed during the 7th Annual Art Prize in Grand Rapids, as will EastEnd Studio & Gallery artist Lane Cooper of Freemont, Mich. Thompson’s work, “RealiTV,” is an acrylic-painted canvas that depicts the relationship people have with television.

fter years of consideration and planning, the curtain is about to go up on the finishing touches at the Joyce & Lucy Franke Center for the Arts. An extensive renovation effort has been underway since early spring and the “refreshed Franke” will be on display beginning at the Sept. 26 blues concert and Oct. 4 rededication. Inviting the public to visit the downtown Marshall site are those most instrumental in this recent initiative to keep arts alive in Calhoun County, from left, Project Designer Patrice Marquardt; Facility Events Manager Dave Deppe; Executive Director Patty Franke Williams and Chairman of the Board Tom Franke.

Columns Time for some required reading By DOUG VANDERLAAN J-Ad Graphics Inc.

Editor’s Corner by John Hendler Some observations after watching the second GOP debate: I think many will look back at this debate as the night Donald Trump started to lose his hold on the field. His same general statements without specifics are starting to get old and he’s becoming more entertainer than candidate for president. CNN didn’t help any, incessantly showing Trump on a split screen with whomever was talking so we could see The Donald’s reaction. Not to mention all the questions about Trump to the other candidates. It was a three-hour Donald Trump show. I feel like Trump finally ‘jumped the shark” and I don’t see him climbing any higher in the polls than where he’s at now. Carly Fiorina will certainly see her numbers rise as she showed that not only does she belong on the main stage, but she also came across as the most serious and most “presidential” of the candidates. And, she held her own against Trump. I also thought Chris Christie had a strong showing as did Marco Rubio. Jeb Bush finally showed some backbone and Ben Carson did OK, but at times he seemed to disappear. Also disappearing, and seeing their chances disappear as well, were Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee as well as the four candidates that were in the “Happy Debate.” As for Ohio Gov. John Kasich, he may still have some staying power yet as the field will certainly shrink from 15 to less than 10 in the coming weeks. The Democrats will finally have a debate on Oct. 13, and I suspect Bernie Sanders will try and pull Hillary Clinton out from behind her podium of safety and canned answers, but I’m sure CNN will do its best to protect Hillary from Sanders as he tries to mix it up with her. As for Joe Biden, I think he’s going to run, and if he runs, I believe he will be the Democratic nominee. Since his son’s death, Biden has shown courage and strength and is carrying himself as America’s elder statesman who comes across as caring, open and funny, all the things Hillary Clinton is not. There’s still so much time until the first primaries and caucuses that it’s impossible to know for sure how it will play out. I just hope that in the future debates the networks that host them become more serious in their approach and of their questions of the candidates. Enough with the sideshow; there are very serious matters that need our attention. And besides, we already have enough garbage on TV already. Until next week, may the good news be yours.

The image of my late father squinting through his cigarette smoke over the kitchen sink as he paged through the copy of John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath that my high school English teacher had lent me is probably what cemented my love for the written word. “You’re not reading this trash,” he announce. “It’s obscene.” He must have seen the part where the young migrant woman with compassion for a starving, malnourished laborer began to nurse him after her baby died. I hadn’t reached that point yet, but I’d already been gripped by the encounter with a devalued and degraded people in this land of opportunity. I chuckle today at that image of my father from my teenage years. I’m even more amused imagining if and how the book got returned to my teacher. If he got it back, it was probably returned by my father who likely also demanded a refund on the tuition he worked so hard to pay for his son’s Christian school education. My dad would have considered it a ‘payback’ to watch my struggle trying to protect our own children from the evils of video game violence and the scourge of television and big-screen pornography being shopped as entertainment. My father’s world changed, and it became more than he could bear. I worry now about my world, being too willing to change and allowing the world to become the decadent waste it’s become. So, maybe that’s why today I sound so much like my father while screaming with teenage-like passion that something has to change. This time, it’s also about a book. It’s one of the most disturbing I’ve ever read but, instead of trying to throttle it out of the life of a young person like my father did, I think this one should be required reading for every high school senior in America. In “Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town,” investigative journalist and best-selling author Jon Krakauer tells the story of the most

underreported crime in America, acquaintance rape. Unlike burglary or embezzlement or any other felony, the victim often comes under more suspicion than the alleged perpetrator. When it happens on a college campus, where most young people live on their own for the first time, it’s almost impossible to prove and prosecute. Alcohol, liberal sexual mores, and , especially, the entitlement culture built around college sports teams make it no surprise why acquaintance rape is so prevalent on American campuses. A December 2014 U.S. Department of Justice report stated that from 1995 to 2013 females of 18 to 24 years of age were the highest number victims of rape and sexual assault. The report documented that 110,000 women in this age group are sexually assaulted each year. And that’s based on just the number of women who choose to report. In agonizing detail, Krakauer builds the case in his book for why a woman might elect not to report a rape, and this is where it gets disturbing. Undertrained officers sometimes ask if a female victim has a boyfriend, suggesting infidelity. They cite the difficulty in proving the charge, especially if it happened after alcohol consumption. If the victim does decide to bring charges, prosecutors are reluctant to prosecute for fear of losing the case. Confidentiality is always promised but, especially in a campus environment and a social media world, rumors cast victims as promiscuous, unbalanced and seeking attention. If the case does go to trial, a victim’s entire personal life is brought into question by hungry defense attorneys. Whatever a victim decides to do, the trauma is rarely over. Medical experts place the rate of post traumatic stress syndrome 50 percent higher for rape victims than that of soldiers returning from war. I’m not painting the matter with a broad brush because I realize that, in some cases, women may be just as responsible in creating situations that lead to permanent regret. A visit to a Barry County courtroom will show the evil of both men and women in devising situations that lead to tragedy, even beyond

sexual offenses. That’s why I feel so strongly that Krakauer’s book — as raw, disturbing and sexually visual as it is — be a primer for every high school senior in America, especially if college is in the plans. I’m not alone, though I recognize the cautions — first demonstrated to me by my father — in allowing literature to be exposed to young and impressionable minds. Jeff Keller has been teaching since 1974 and, as a member of the Hastings High School English department. He knows well the needed balance between exposure and discretion. “My own kids went to Hastings High School, and I know it’s a bit isolated, especially if a senior’s going to go to a big campus school like Michigan State or the University of Michigan,” agrees Keller. “Literature like that can be beneficial, it can open a student’s eyes and help them see what’s going on across the world, but it’s a fine line. We have to be careful because I’m still teaching freshmen who are 14 and 15 years old.” Also at risk is parent and community reaction, like my father’s, especially when specific works of literature become required reading. The Thornapple Kellogg school district went through this in 1979 when a pair of objecting parents found five school board votes to have the novel Catcher in the Rye banned. After months of public vetting, hundreds of column inches in letter-to-the-editor submissions, and national-spotlight attention, the district did restore the book to the shelf but teachers could only “suggest” it as an alternative reading assignment. Even then, based on local newspaper accounts, students were already declaring their independence, demanding their right to read the book, and protesting moves to suppress their right to learn. Today’s young people are no different, just running on jet fuel. Freshmen, Keller acknowledges, have already seen R-rated movies and played video games rated ‘M’ that aren’t even supposed to be purchased for them. Continues to next page...

Happy 51st birthday to Mary Lands; 11 years missing To the Editor: It’s been 11 years since we’ve heard from our daughter Mary Lands; 11 years of her birthdays going by with no word from her. There are people who know what happened to her but won’t come forward. Our family hopes this never happens to them. We don’t wish this on anyone.

Mary was cheated out of being with her family and children and seeing her grandchildren. Why? She was a wonderful person who didn’t deserve this. She was friends with everyone and loved life to the fullest. She was a hard worker and raised her children to be respectful and responsible adults. We miss her daily and live with this every day of our lives. If anyone thinks

you get closure, you don’t. You have to learn to live with it. Please come forward and let us know where she is so we can put her to rest. She deserves this. Cliff and Anita Marshall, Marshall

52nd Historic Home Tour was a successful event To the Editor: On behalf of the Marshall Historical Society, I wish to send a big thank you to the many sponsors, volunteers and others who made the

52nd Historic Home Tour the success that it was. It is truly remarkable that so many hundreds of citizens are able to come together each year to stage

this important event in support of the Honolulu House and the other Marshall museums. It is a demonstration of our community pride and of the regard that Marshall

has for its historic heritage. Well done, Marshall! Gerald Lehmann, President, Marshall Historical Society

“I’ve always loved to golf. But as my heart condition got worse, I couldn’t do much of anything anymore. Even walking across the room left me feeling tired and out of breath. Fortunately for me, the doctors at Bronson helped change all that. They told me about a new heart surgery called TAVR that could actually give me my life back. And that’s exactly what happened. Within days of my surgery at Bronson Methodist Hospital, I could walk without feeling out of breath, and I wasn’t tired anymore. My nurses, they were great, too. They talked to me, listened to me, even gave me pudding and popsicles in the middle of the night. Better yet, I’m back doing all the things I did before my heart condition: mowing the lawn, going to the gym and playing golf with the guys — terrible as ever.” Roy, Battle Creek, Michigan
