In The News: Marshall Public Schools to hold elementary forums over reconfiguration In the coming weeks, Marshall Public Schools will be hosting three elementary school forums for community input on Superintendent Dr. Randy Davis’ recommendation that the district move to a two-tiered model for its three elementary schools. Revealed at the Board of Education business session Feb. 3, Davis recommended that Gordon Elementary and Hughes Elementary would each house K-2, while Walters Elementary would house students in grades 3-5. The forums will be held at Hughes on Feb. 12 at 7 p.m.; Gordon on Feb. 19 at 7 p.m.; and Walters on Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. See story on page 20

Human trafficking: A local and global issue to be discussed Feb. 15 International Justice Mission is a human rights agency that brings rescue to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. IJM lawyers, investigators and aftercare professionals work with local officials to secure immediate victim rescue and aftercare, to prosecute perpetrators and to ensure that public justice systems - police, courts and laws - effectively protect the poor. On Saturday, Feb. 15, IJM’s Vice President of Spiritual Formation Jim Martin will be giving a presentation on Human Trafficking: A local and global issue, at Crossroads Church and Ministries on Old 27 in Marshall from 6-7:30 p.m. “We’re hoping to inspire and possibly empower individuals to help,” said Crossroads Pastor Clare Loughrige on the free event. “We’re hoping to fill 800 seats for this event.” See story on page 26

Celebrity Luncheon raises $4,200 for Calhoun County Fairgrounds Following the Valentine’s theme for the event, more than 200 people from all over Calhoun County showed their love for the Calhoun County Fairgrounds by attending the annual Celebrity Luncheon on Jan. 31 at Cornwell’s Turkeyville USA, hosted by the Calhoun County Agricultural & Industrial Society. Fair supporters helped to raise $4,200 while enjoying a Cornwell’s lunch of turkey, dressing and all the trimmings, with half the proceeds going to the CCAIS. See story and photos on page 34

‘Love Like That’: a series on love Marshall United Methodist Church Pastor Melany Chalker shares the first of her four-part series on love. “It is the season of love and with all the snow, wind and arctic temperatures, who can blame companies like Hallmark and Russell Stover for overtaking the season with heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and glitter-stained cards filled with mushy love poems,” she said. “Love is in the air, in the window displays and in the aisle bins in every store in America.” See column on page 23

Reuben Race 5K Run/Walk to benefit Fountain Clinic For its 10 year anniversary, Pastrami Joe’s, 105 N. Jefferson St. in Marshall, was looking for a way to give back to the Marshall and Battle Creek communities. Over the past several years, Pastrami Joe’s has sponsored Reuben Eating contests whose participants have raised thousands of dollars for The Fountain Clinic. For 2014, however, owner Jodi Lubis is sponsoring something new: the first-annual Reuben Race 5K Run/Walk for Charity on Saturday, March 15 with a start time at 9 a.m. See story on page 22

Theirs is a...

worth fighting for!

D

ebbie and Larry Robinson of Marshall say with almost five decades of putting their love to the test, they’ve made it through many of life’s struggles, learning one thing for sure - their love is worth fighting for. “We don’t know how to give up,” Larry said. “We are always willing to give it one more day.” The couple danced into each other's hearts early in life and have been sharing their life together ever since. This summer the Robinsons will celebrate their 49th wedding anniversary. See story on page 24

Word on the Street What does love mean to you? The ad-visor&chronicle asked these six Gordon Elementary School fifth graders what love means to them and what their families’ plans were for Valentine's Day on Feb. 14.

Editor’s Corner by John Hendler I saw a segment on the Today Show a while back that dealt with cyber-loafing or cyber-slacking, the practice of being online at work for non-work purposes. A recent study reports that most of us spend more than half our time at work and in some cases, as much as 80 percent of our time at work looking at things that have nothing to do with our jobs. You know who you are. You know how easy it is to take an at-work detour: You go to retrieve that important e-mail message, but first you’re just going to take a “quick break” to check Facebook, just in case anything important has been posted, like photos of the sunrise, photos of cats wearing hats or photos of dogs walking on logs. Or, there might be a game you could partake in such as,”Name a movie title with the letter A in it.” Or, you check out the postings about recipes, your friend’s kid’s “funny” story at dinner or someone waxing poetic about the years passing them by: Life is good, but it’s just not what I dreamed it would be. Now, you’re kind of bummed out and you look at the clock as that quick break has turned into 90 minutes. No way you can get to work after reading that sad post about your friend’s life not turning out the way he dreamed it would be, so you give yourself a few minutes to perk up by playing Words With Friends, Song Pop or Slot-O-Mania. Or check out some videos on YouTube: Bob’s Burgers Tina Driving and Dutch Announcer Can’t Stop Laughing are two of my favorites. You tell yourself that, absolutely, positively, you will get back to work just after you chill for a few minutes. And after you check the weather forecast. You notice it’s going to snow (no kidding) and just for fun, you check the weather in the Bahamas and start wondering how much it would cost to get away for a long weekend to beat the winter blues. Finally, at around 11 o’clock and some two hours later, you are finally ready to get to work. That is until, a co-worker asks if you want to take an early lunch. After the morning you’ve had, how can you refuse? Apparently this so-called study has a “cure” to solve this scourge in the workplace that is known as cyber-slacking. And I will find out what this cure is, just after I check on the weather in Kathmandu and check the cricket scores from Australia. Five minutes, that’s all. Okay, 10 minutes, but that’s it. Promise. Until next week, may the good news be yours.

"I think love is creepy! On Valentine’s Day we go out to dinner.”

"Love is my phone because it has things I can do when I’m bored. I like Valentine’s Day because we get chocolates in yarn baskets.”

"Love is caring for another person, like my mom and dad treat me. I like Valentine candy hearts.”

Lily Collins, Marshall

Morgan Hackworth, Marshall

Tyler Rupp, Marshall

"Love is like a spark between two people. At our house, we have Valentine heart pancakes on special plates.”

"Love is an emotion that you can feel for a friend, your family or even a hobby. I like the chocolates that my parents give us.”

Look closely at your Marshall electric/sewer/water bill To the Editor: Has anyone looked closely at their city of Marshall electric/water/sewer bill recently? My total due the city was $149.68. Of this total due, $56.66 is made up of those things listed below, which is over a third of the bill. I am absolutely livid that the service charges, sales taxes and power supply cost adjustments are more in some cases than the actual usage.

My electric usage for the period through Jan. 13 was $66.46. The A 95 Low Income Surcharge, electric service charge, power supply cost adjustment and electric sales tax were an additional $23.95. That is over a fourth of my usage. My water usage totaled $11.10, however, the water service charge was $18.12, more than my actual use. The sewer usage was $15.55, and the sewer service

charge was $14.48, only $1.07 less than my actual use. How did we get into this position of paying more in service charges than we actually pay for use of the service? How did we get into this position of paying almost as much in service charges as for the use of the service? I’m not sure which governmental entity is responsible for this, but I do feel whatever that entity is, owes

it to the people of Marshall to “fix” this. I encourage you to look at your most recent bill from the city of Marshall. If you are experiencing the same unreasonable charges as I am, please let your City Council know of your concerns and dissatisfaction with this gross injustice. Judy Peters, Marshall

Have some respect for the American flags downtown To the Editor: While driving Michigan Ave. through downtown Marshall, I have noticed for several weeks now the American flags that are displayed on existing parking meters are tattered, fallen or completely gone (although the wooden flag pole is still propped in the holder). The flags are even lying on the ground wrapped around the parking meter poles. Yes people, that ‘s right; go take a drive through downtown Marshall and see for yourself. Our American flag is being disrespected by “us” U.S. citizens and we call ourselves “Americans.” Wow! Some of you were the first to stand up and holler when enemies of the U.S. disgraced our land, you were the first to scream about the direct attack on the Twin Towers, yet you don’t scream and holler about the flags that lay lifeless in the piles of snow in the downtown area of Marshall. Shame on you! The American flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the

ground, the floor, water or merchandise, via United States Code Title 4 Chapter 1—The Flag (#8 b. Respect for flag). The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled or damaged in any way (#8 e.). And yet hundreds of us continue to ignore this disrespectful display of our symbol of freedom as it lay tattered and worn on the ground. Every American vet, active or nonactive service member, U.S. citizen and citizen of Marshall should be ashamed of how our flag is being treated. Our American service people (past and present) have sacrificed for this country and we, as citizens, can’t even take care of our flag properly. How it breaks my heart to see the flag disrespected like that. Remember, those that fought for our freedoms and the sacrifices they endured; respect that. The very least we can do, is take care of the U.S. symbol of freedom. Shame on the person(s)

who have neglected these flags. Shame on the person(s) who have left them out in the weather without caring for them. Shame on the person(s) that have let the flags fall to the ground and get dirty, wet, buried in the snow or walked on. And shame on the person(s) who have shoveled and piled snow on the fallen flags. As an American, I am very disappointed in the treatment of this beautiful symbol of freedom. Maybe the flags should be removed from display altogether if they cannot be treated with respect. I am not sure “who” pays for those flags, nor am I sure who is responsible for them and their care, but as a tax paying American, I am very disappointed in the condition of the flags and the negligence of their caretakers. Shame on anyone who is not peeved about this topic. As Aretha Franklin would say, “just a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T!” Becky Lautzenheiser, Marshall

The Marshall High School boys varsity basketball team saw its record drop to 3-9 following a 49-38 home loss to Sturgis on Feb. 3. Jacob Brubaker led Marshall with 12 points, while Landry Reynolds had nine points. On Jan. 31, Marshall dropped a 69-60 contest to Harper Creek. Marshall hosted Lakeview on Friday evening and will play at Coldwater on Tuesday, Feb. 11. Pictured above left: Marshall’s Tyler Torrey, 11, Angus Bennett and Danny Welke wait for a possible rebound versus Harper Creek. Above right: Chris Thomas fights for the rebound.

The Marshall High School wrestling team placed 15th at the SMAC league meet on Feb. 1 as two Redhawks earned medals. Those wrestlers were Kiefer Bartlett, who placed fourth at 119 pounds and Jasper Hilger, who placed sixth at 145 pounds. “We only brought home a couple of medals but almost everyone won at least one match,” said coach Nick Zuehlke. “We fought for every point and I was encouraged by the effort with our small line up. “Kiefer wrestled four very tough matches and I was impressed with his improvement. It should be just the finish he needs to propel himself forward going into districts.” The team district tournament was Feb. 6 while the individual district tournament is today, Feb. 8. “Jasper was impressive again earning another medal,” said Zuehlke about the first year wrestler, who went 3-2 on the day and suffered two losses where he was in the match “right til the end.” “Jasper had a real nice come from behind overtime victory, scoring six points in the third period to tie the match and attacking the winning takedown early in the overtime period,” said Zuehlke.
