The Leslie Public Schools’ projected deficit for the 2009-10 school year has grown to $700,000. The worsening deficit became evident after receiving the most recent economic information from the State of Michigan’s House Fiscal Agency. Next year’s revenues are projected to decline by $240,000, while operating costs will increase. The budget building process for the 2009-10 school year will require difficult decision making. Approximately 85% of the district’s operating costs are for staff. The remaining 15% is available to cover expenses such as utilities, athletics, text books, technology, school buses and building repairs. Reductions in staffing are expected. A budget work session was held by the Leslie Public Schools Board of Education on Wednesday, January 14, 2009. During that meeting, the board was provided lists of suggested budget cuts and revenue enhancements generated by input from the staff. The Board reviewed each idea and separated them into 4 groups: 1) support, 2) reject, 3) need more information, and 4) possible consideration at a later date. The superintendent is providing additional information as requested and assigning dollar values to each. Initial estimates show more will have to be added to the list of supported ideas if they are to cut $700,000 from the budget. The Board of Education has set Wednesday, February 11, 2009 for a second budget work session. It will begin at 6:00 PM at the high school board room. All school board meetings are open to the public.

What’s in Store for Horse Racing? by Julie Glair, freelance writer Jackson Harness Raceway opened in 1948. How sad to see that it closed on December 5, 2008. What is in the future for the rest of Michigan’s racing industry? “The horse racing industry is in serious peril of being driven out of the state, as evidenced by the recent closing of the Jackson Harness Raceway and declining racing revenues across the board,” said Ernie Birchmeier, livestock specialist with Michigan Farm

Bureau. Five years ago, lawmakers were warned before Proposal 1 was passed by Michigan voters. The agriculture industry predicted dire unintended consequences of amending the state constitution to restrict additional gambling without popular vote, a ballot heavily financed by the casino industry. In this ballot initiative, casinos are exempt from the requirement to have voter approval before gaming expansion. Michigan Farm Bureau President Wayne H. Wood warned in 2004, “Passage of Proposal 1 won’t stop…casinos from entering people’s backyards, but it will make it much more difficult if not nearly impossible for horse racetracks to evolve…” It was that inability to evolve that led to the Jackson track closure in December, one year after Muskegon’s thoroughbred track was purchased by the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians.

The Forgotten “Thank You” by Julie Glair, freelance writer Dawn Clark, have you heard of her?... NO!?... How about Miss Dawn? “YES!” Now you know her…She’s the Lead Teacher for Early Childhood Programs for Stockbridge Schools. Miss Dawn is quite something when you see her in action at Smith Elementary School. She enriches children from age 4 through kindergarten in her program appropriately named “Young Explorers”. You can pick out her room from a quick peek in the door: fish tanks filled with Hissing Cockroaches, a couple of friendly rats, a turtle and frog all at home in her Animal Area. Nature can be found everywhere. A sand box filled with buried bones. Leaf imprints hanging from the ceiling. Miss Dawn’s love of nature is no secret and she really exposes children to the amazing world around them.

Originally born and raised in Chelsea, Michigan she moved to Stockbridge in 1986. Dawn is married and has two children, M a t t h e w Chrisinske, age 21 and Lynsey Clark, age 13. Dawn was a volunteer Boy Scout leader when Matthew w a s i n (Continued on page 6)

The following commentary was written by State Representative Barb Byrum (D-Onondaga). If you have any questions, please call her office at (517) 373-0587. The national recession has hit Michigan the hardest. We were informed earlier this week that the unemployment rate for our great state has shot past 10 percent and although this is bad news for all of us, it has motivated me and my colleagues in the Michigan House to fight even harder than we ever have for the state and our residents. It is critical that we pass plans to create a business-friendly environment to generate jobs and boost our economy. Earlier this month, it was announced that our state faces yet another budget deficit and due to the nation's weak economy, it could top $1 billion. This budget shortfall has the potential to threaten our economic recovery, but I will work tirelessly to ensure that this does not happen. Lawmakers need to take a serious look at our budget

Waterloo Police Make it 2 for 1.

(Continued from page 1)

Submitted by Chief Cottrell

A Munith couple were arrested last night after Waterloo Police stopped the male half for a traffic violation. The 30 year old Roberts Dr. resident chose to stop his car in his own driveway but was unable to provide the investigating officer with a valid drivers license. While talking to the man, the officer realized the man's pregnant girlfriend was also wanted for a felony forgery warrant in Jackson County. The driver was arrested and then officers went to the house and searched for the girlfriend. The woman was found hiding in her child's bedroom closet with her feet tucked up under her on a small dresser. Her arrest completed the family affair and both were taken to the Jackson County Jail pending arraignment. The family pit bull was also locked up in his cage in the bedroom.

Congratulations! We, at the Church of Christ, would like to congratulate our very special young people for the recognition they have received from their peers in this year’s Home Coming and Coming Home activities; Emily Lewis -Sophomore class Home Coming Queen, Anthony Rickle -- Freshman class Coming Home King, James Wireman and C.J. Lewis--Senior class Coming Home King nomination. We are proud of them--not just for the recognition by their peers--- but because they are wonderful people.

House Bill 4610, introduced and shot down in 2004, known as the Agricultural Enhancement bill, would have allowed Michigan’s racetracks to add video lottery terminals. This, if only in a small way, would have allowed the tracks to compete with casinos. Supporters of the bill said it would have added $300 million in revenues for Michigan. The inability to generate additional, taxable income gave casinos an advantage, and that uneven playing field led directly to Jackson Harness Raceway’s demise, said Brett Boyd, President of the Michigan Harness Horsemen’s Association. “Mountaineer Gaming (owner of the license to race and simulcast at Jackson) decided to cut its losses because it couldn’t expand gaming,” Boyd said. “It has been successful in other states where they are allowed to expand gaming.” The real shame about the Jackson closing, Boyd said, was that attendance was increasing at the track. “It’s unfortunate,” he said, “because last year, we saw some of the largest attendance in the last 40 years. Jackson had great marketing, great connections with families and children with dollar hot dogs and popcorn and pop and other promotions. It was a low-priced family entertainment option, particularly on Saturday nights. But the problems were insurmountable. With three metro Detroit casinos and several Indian casinos spending millions of dollars to be sure the so-called racino idea didn’t progress, Mountaineer finally waved the white flag. Every time an effort has been made to do something similar to what makes other states successful, it’s been railroaded by the casino interests.” The loss of this long-standing, beloved attraction came at the cost of 40 full-time and 100 seasonal jobs.

Great Lakes Plein Air Painters Association The Great Lakes Plein Air Painters Association (GLPAPA), is a group of artists who work en plein air at a number of painting meets at various sites around the state of Michigan during the spring, summer and autumn seasons. What is meant by painting en plein air? En Plein air is a French term meaning painting from life in the outdoors. The main reason that artists work en plein air is that they find that they learn more by seeing scenes in their natural state, and can therefore better capture the essence of the place in their work. There is a certain immediacy about working from life and also an intimacy that comes from standing in the midst of your subject this cannot be duplicated in the artist’s studio. Since light and shadows change so rapidly, painting en plein air demands that the painter quickly capture the scene, usually completing the painting in two hours or less. Due to this limited time, painters usually work on small canvases or panels, making only minor changes, if any, in the studio. Completing the entire process on site assures that the work can correctly be called a plein air painting. The art works that you see here today represent the varied approaches of a number of GLPAPA members,

I assure you that my top priority is to make sure any cuts made to the state's budget will not threaten education, health care, public safety and especially our ability to create and retain jobs. I am confident that the stimulus package the federal government has promised will help Michigan during these tough times; however, we cannot and will not wait for Washington to act. The Legislature is working tirelessly to resolve this budget issue and ensure Michigan never faces a crisis like this again. By working together – Democrats and Republicans alike – we can make Michigan a better place to work, live and raise a family.

7th Grade Girls vs. Columbia Central What a Game! Alex Noffsinger, Student Writer

A lot of people underestimate women’s basketball. I myself, growing up as a Michigan State fan, rooted on the Lady Spartans to a couple final fours and a national championship appearance. My sister has played basketball throughout her life too, so I’ve learned to appreciate women’s basketball. With every game I watch, I appreciate it more as if it were the men’s game of the week, or maybe like this week, the 7th grade girls basketball game of the week. The Lady Panthers were going into Wednesday playing their third straight game on three straight days. Monday and Tuesday were huge W’s, but Columbia Central wasn’t going to be an easy task. The first was a quarter that Stockbridge may just want to forget as they couldn’t knock down a shot from the field or the line. The score after one quarter was 4-3. The Lady Panthers had gone 1-5 from the line too. The second was much better as the scoring picked up a little bit both teams went 0-2 from the free throw line. It was close at the half setting up a dramatic second half that ESPN2 should see. It was the Panthers roaring with an electric fast break offense off of Columbia misses that stunned Columbia Central players and coaches. With the Panthers controlling the fast break tempo the Columbia Central players looked out of sync. The Lady Panthers went into the fourth quarter with a 24-12 lead to never score again. The fourth was a totally different story as Columbia Central chipped away at the Stockbridge lead silencing the crowd. The fast break offense that Stockbridge was using in the third was turning into turnovers in the fourth. With no answer to the Columbia push it was up to the clock to expire before the once insurmountable lead could get toppled. Columbia Central had the ball with seconds to go when a three ball wouldn’t go giving the Fighting Allison’s another win. The final score was 24-21 after Columbia Central went on a 9-0 run to close out the game. Kelsey Crockett the daughter of the coach had a double-double for Stockbridge. I think the keys for Stockbridge in the first were poor shots and missed opportunities at the line. In the second half it was a quick and aggressive fast break game that got them the lead, but turnovers in the fourth that nearly squandered it. Great game ladies.

Stockbridge Wrestling Results Submitted by Coach Mills

The Stockbridge Panthers, still trying to fill voids, suffered their first league meet losses today in Webberville. Stockbridge 10 vs. Jackson Parma Western 62 Stockbridge 33 vs. Webberville 48 Victories for the Panthers 112 – Joey Rizzolo went 2-0 119 – Joey Hodges went 2-0 125 – Sean Higgins went 1-1 135 – Derek Moore went 1-1 285 – Cody Fuller went 1-1 Division III, Stockbridge Panthers traveled to the Dexter Invitational team tournament where they took on more Division I teams. With three voids in the line up it is hard to compete at this level, but Coach Mills is looking for some diversity to prepare for the State finals. Although the team only won one match for day, the team will benefit from their losses. Stockbridge went 1-4 for the day. Stockbridge Stockbridge Stockbridge Stockbridge Stocbridge

Aggie Varsity Girls Worked Hard to Split Pair of Games.

Stockbridge Splits Games It appeared as though the Panthers were going to shake off a couple of losses last Tuesday after leading Lansing Christian 28-18 at the half, but the Pilgrims would prove to be to much down the stretch as the Panther’s fell 48 - 44 last week on the road. Stockbridge was outscored in the 4th quarter, 20 - 7 as Lansing Christian overcame a 9 point, third quarter deficit to win. Jacob Powers led the team with 12 points followed by Brandon Mason with 9.

The Aggies continued their stellar play last week in a contest with Carson City Crystal as they ran off with a 67 - 28 victory. Ten Aggies were able to get in the scoring column as the offense scored in double digits in each of the 4 quarters while holding Carson City to les then 10 points in 3 of the 4 quarters. Kelsey Effner led the team with 17 points and 7 rebounds. Krista Mashak tallied 15 points and 10 steals, while Abbey Hedemark scored 11 points and had 6 assists. Kayla Minix added 7 and Stephanie Bohlman 6. Friday night saw a tightly contested defensive effort between league leaders as Dansville played host to Laingsburg. In the end the Aggies came up short by a final score of 32 - 28. Kelsey Effner scored a game high 14 points. Emily Walker had 11 rebounds. Rebecka Guy, Abbey Hedemark, and Stephanie Bohlman scored 5, 4, and 3 points respectively. www.frazziniphotography.com Varsity Girls Basketball

Blackhawks Struggle Offensively The Lady Hawks had a tough time getting things going on offense this week as they dropped a pair of games to Parma Western and Lansing Catholic. Against Western Paxin Stern was the lone player in double figures for the Blackhawks with 14 points in a 72 - 38 loss. Autumn Barratt and Megan Martin each had 5 points. In their contest last week with Lansing Catholic the shooting touch just wasn’t there as Leslie only shot 7 of 17 from the charity stripe. Rebecca Swab was the only player to score more than 5 points as she finished with 13 points.

The Panther’s roared into action again Friday at home where they played host to the Golden Eagles of Columbia Central. Coach Ladd shook up the starting line-up for the Panthers, still playing without 2nd leading scored Jeff O’Brien, as he brought leading scorer Thomas Lovachis off the bench to score 16 points enroute to a 48-40 win. The game was marked by some solid defensive play by a number of Panthers, including CJ Lewis, which contributed to the 38-25 lead Stockbridge enjoyed after three quarters. The home crowd had reason to fear a repeat of Tuesday’s fourth quarter fall-out at Lansing Christian, as the Eagles cut the lead to 5 points with just over 4 minutes remaining, but Stockbridge put on the clamps and came out victorious. Jacob Powers was the second leading scorer with 14 points. David Rowse had 6 and JD Summers 5.

It was a tough week of offense for the Leslie Blackhawks on the hardwood this past week as they dropped a pair of SMAA league contests to Lansing Christian and Parma Western this past week. Against Parma Western the Hawks were defeated by a 79 - 56 score. Travis Crowe led the team in scoring with 17 points. Ryan Masters was second in scoring with 11 and Trent Page chipped in 9 points. It was unfortunately more of the same as Leslie took on the Pilgrims of Lansing Christian on Friday night as they lost 62 - 45. Lansing Christian seemed to get all the calls as they went to the charity stripe 38 times compared to 18 visits by the Blackhawks. Trent Page had another stellar night as he scored 16 points and ripped down 12 boards. Travis Crowe scored 9 points.

The JV Girls basketball team defeated Lansing Christian in a tight contest by a final score of 40-39. It was a total team effort as all eight girls contributed to the victory. A strong offensive showing in the first half gave the Lady Panthers a 28-22 lead. They followed that up with a great defensive effort in the second half, especially the fourth quarter when they allowed only six point. Sam Stephens led the team with 8 rebounds and 3 steals. Jamie Lindquist handed out four assists, while Amanda Ballagh pulled down seven rebounds and hit the go ahead basket with only seconds remaining. Raven Summers and Julia Snider each scored 10 points, followed by Stephens with 8, and Lindquist and Kellie Rizzolo added 5 and 4 respectively. The Girls basketball had a rough shooting night as they lost to Columbia Central 47-10 in their second game of the week. The girls played hard and did a lot of good things, but they were unable to make shots. Julia Snider had a team high 8 rebounds while Kellie Rizzolo and Sam Stephens each grabbed five. Raven Summers led the offense as she scored eight points.

Aggie Men Suffer Pair of Losses It was a tough week on the pine for the Aggies as they lost two contest to Laingsburg and Carson City Crystal in CMAC action. Eli Tinkle had 10 points and 15 rebounds in a 64-41 lose to Carson City. Nate Bailer and Cody Schiebner each had 7 points. Schiebner was the leading scorer with 10 points in a 50-34 lose to Laingsburg. Bailer was second with 7.

Jacob Pace contributed 15 points in the 3rd quarter alone and finished with a game high 19 points including 3, three pointers. Jeff Katz played an outstanding all around game by dishing out 4 assists against 0 turnovers, grabbing 5 steals, shooting 6 for 6 from the free throw line and finishing with 9 points.

Page 6 - THE I love learning new things, mainly obscure things. Little fun facts that I can arbitrarily throw into conversation and seem really intelligent. Like your thumb is the same length as your nose, the most common name in the world is Mohammed and that Shakespeare invented the words “bump” and “assassinate”. Did you know President Andrew Jackson’s pet parrot had to be removed from his funeral in 1845 because it was swearing? Why am I obsessed with finding out these little ditties? What drives me to study them and then memorize them? What possessed me to buy “The Ultimate Book of Useless Information”? Simply put, I like knowing there are answers for almost everything. I am obsessed with order and place. Everything in my world must have a place and an order and to have something that does not belong or fit drive me insane. Being a writer, I don’t like surprises. I like to know the ending before it begins. I need to know how the story goes from start to finish so I can write it all out and put it in order. The same goes for the game “Mahjong”. No matter how many different ways you play, if you play the tiles correctly you will never have any left over. And “Tetris”; now there’s an order fanatic’s dream. As for my shopping habits, at the grocery store I will buy two of everything; one to use, and one to have as backup. I never realized I did it until it was pointed out to

Much Ado About Nothing. Corinda Hackworth chackworth@yahoo.com

me. But it I feel comforted knowing I have an extra whatever to fall back on. I can’t run out; no surprises. I like knowing that when I buy my daily coffee at Red Sky, it comes out to $1.33. And I am one of those people who pays exact change for things. The employees patiently wait while I dig through my purse to find the exact amount. And I feel really unsettled when I don’t have the thirty-three cents. I will have something left over; a remainder. Noticing my idiosyncrasy, Sherrill, owner of Red Sky Coffee Shop in beautiful downtown Stockbridge, asked me if I preferred odd or even numbers. I pushed my lips out as I pondered the question (“monkey face”, which I’ve noticed I’m making more and more). While I considered the answer, she told me that she prefers prime

WEEKLY PRIDE

numbers. Prime numbers are individuals. They are their own person. I told her I had to go the other way on that one. Even numbers are perfect for me. Everything is neat and even without a barrage of decimal points dragging behind. Decimal points are messy. Decimal points bring baggage into the relationship. Jean, an employee at said coffee shop, told me about a patron whose amounts always total $3.18. This customer will buy a gift certificate for himself in the amount of $31.80. Not only does he have ten cups of coffee prepaid for, but by also using his punch card for every cup purchased, his eleventh cup is free. Now that to me is ingenious. No loose ends, exact change plus an extra cuppa. What else is there? It makes perfect cents. (Ha! Get it?) It’s also extremely comforting for me knowing that there are more individuals like me out there. Well, I find it comforting while others deem it downright scary, one Bryan Hackworth. But again, I must reiterate the point: there is always an even solution to messy problem, an answer to every question, a fact for everything. So the next time you want to look intelligent, you can spout off the following fun fact: if the population of China began walking past you in single file, the line would never end because of the rate of population. And sleep soundly knowing that if you’re wondering why, there’s probably an answer.

kindergarten for several years. Then as Lynsey was ready to begin Daisy’s in kindergarten, Dawn stepped up again and became the Girl Scout leader for the troop she still leads as 8th graders today. “Scouting is important. It’s a great opportunity to show kids responsibility, leadership and independence. They need to believe in themselves. We still have 9 girls in our troop and we’re very excited about a trip to New York City we’ll be taking in April,” Dawn said. One of Dawn’s other passions is the love of God. She taught Sunday School for 12 years using drama, puppetry and other unique hands-on methods of teaching. She calls herself a “prayer warrior” and believes it is God’s will for her life to touch children’s lives. Miss Dawn spent 26 years in middle management for Gelman – Francis Manufacturing before receiving the “nudge” to work with children. “Children have no fear. They are amazing ‘sponges’”. She went on to say, “Often there is not enough family time for kids, so I make sure the children have opportunities to express themselves and especially be listened to. I also think it’s important to make them laugh. We really have a lot of fun with learning.” Dawn also has the opportunity to spend time with kids as she drives a school bus for Stockbridge. “I remember as a kid spending a lot of time at my Grandma Musolf’s farm. She would spend time with me outside, learning about nature. If I wanted to play office or veterinarian, she would set up an entire office or clinic. She really encouraged me to use my imagination,” Dawn reflected. “I wish I had thought up this quote myself, but there is a poster on my wall in my classroom that really sums up how I feel about what I do”: ‘They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.’ by Carl W. Buechner
