City hoping residents


favor a street millage

2.5-mill levy would raise $1.3 million over 5 years

streets in Imlay City. Officials hope residents will pass a street and sidewalk
improvement millage at the polls on Nov. 3.

IMLAYCITY City
officials arent waiting for the
state or county to repair their
deteriorating streets.
In mid-August, Imlay
City Commissioners passed a
resolution agreeing to place a
street and sidewalk improvement millage on the ballot on
Tuesday, November 3.
The proposed millage

calls for a 2.5-mill citywide


levy over a period of five
years, running from 2016 to
2020.
If approved, the millage
would raise an estimated
$265,868 for city streets and
sidewalks during the first
year; which would translate
to about $1.3 million for the
full term of the levy.
A condition of the proposed levy was that the Imlay
City Downtown Development
Authority had to agree to opt-

ing out of collecting any


extra-voted millage over
the next five years; which the
DDA Board has agreed to do.
The city recently hired
Rowe Professional Services
to conduct a study and isolate
which city streets are in greatest need of repair.
Streets identified as those
in immediate need of repair
included: Almont Avenue,
Calkins, Pine, Dirgo, Hunt,

and ended up in the ditch

Fatal tractor accident


The Lapeer County Sheriffs Department,
Goodland Township firefighters and Lapeer
County EMS were called to the scene of a serious accident Tuesday morning at a Cade Road
residence, just south of Clear Lake Road. A 64
year-old man was killed when he started his tractor while standing next to it. The vehicle was in
gear at the time and ran him over, pinning the
victim beneath the rear tire. As of press time, the
mans identity was not released pending notification of family members.

Area athletes hoop for a cure


By Maria Brown
Tri-City Times Assistant Editor

IMLAY CITY Pink


isnt a school color for either
Imlay City or Capac but on
Thursday, October 8, there
was plenty of that color out
on the basketball court when
the rivals took part in their
third annual Hoopin for a
Cure breast cancer awareness game at the Imlay City
Middle School.
The Imlay City girls seventh and eighth grade teams
hosted the benefit event.

During warm up, the athletes


boasted pink gearheadbands, shoelaces, socks and
shirtsand spectators in the
stands also proudly wore pink
for the occasion.
After posing for photos,
players took part in a letter
exchange, giving positive
notes of encouragement to
each other.
The athletes are going to
be competing against each for
the next four to five years but
that doesnt mean they cant
be friends. It was a great way
to promote sportsmanship on

and off the court, said coach


and event organizer Kristyn
Kurka.
At halftime, cancer survivors were asked to stand and
be recognized. One of the
gyms wall featured a special
display with the names in
honor and memory of family
and friends who had battled
the disease.
So many of the athletes
have been touched in some
way by cancer. Doing a
breast cancer awareness game
just fits perfectly. When the
survivors and fighters stand at

half time to be recognized, I


always get chills. I lost both
grandmothers to breast cancer
before I was born, she said.
Throughout the week and
during the game, players collected donations which
totalled more than $670.
The money will be split
equally between The Breast
Cancer Research Foundation
and the American Cancer
Society, Kurka said.
The Imlay City and
Capac girls basketball teams
thank the community for their
support!

members are looking to fill an
assortment of vacancies within their ranks and among
staff.
At their Monday meeting,
members regretfully accepted
the resignation of DPW
Superintendent Ron Martin,
effective January 4, 2016.
Earlier this month,

seat on the council. She asked
that her letter to fellow

confidential.
The village is also
accepting applications to fill a
vacancy on the Zoning Board
of Appeals.
Council President John
Grzyb said hed like to wait
until after the first of the
year to make an appointment
to the council, saying he feels
its critical to fill the
superintendent position first.
The past 12 years have
been rewarding. I
have
enjoyed working for you and
working with my fellow
employees, Martin wrote in
his letter to the council.

Thank you for the opportunities that you have


provided me...I wish the
Village of Capac the very
best.
At Mondays meeting,
Grzyb announced changes to
committee assignments in
light of Hlubics resignation
and members voted to appoint
Paul Libkie as their new
President Pro-Tem.
Applicants for the ZBA
seat must be village residents.
The board meets annually in
the spring but some additional meetings may be called, as
necessary. Letters of interest
can be submitted to the village offices, 131 N. Main

that is paramount to what a
state representative responsibilities are, he says. Thats
why I decided to run.
If elected, Kempf says
his top priority will be to reestablish connections for
Lapeer County and restore its
good reputation.
Right now we have at
best a tarnished reputation in
Lansing, he says. The first
priority is to mend some
fences, and to regain the
voice for Lapeer County.
Right now theres been a

huge roadblock in getting


anything done on fixing the
roads, and that is a priority
because right now we have
no voice leading that fight on
our behalf.
He says Lapeer County
needs to elect a representative that will hit the ground
running, and Kempf says
hes prepared to do just that.
Its especially important
at this time that we send
someone whos familiar with
the process, he says.
Along with restoring dignity to the 82nd District State
House seat, Kempf says he
will fight for more local control over the state and federal
money that trickles down to
Lapeer County senior citizens through the Valley Area
on Aging.
I think that we have
done a very good job in helping our seniors here in
Lapeer County, but we need
to take away some of the

roadblocks to how we utilize


state and federal funds,
Kempf says. After 15 years
as a county commissioner, I
can tell you that no one
knows better than we do here
in Lapeer County how to
best serve our senior population.
Kempf says hed also
focus his attention on bringing jobs to Lapeer County,
adding that hes not convinced a rise in the states
sales tax will be beneficial.
I believe that raising the
sales tax is not going to be
the answer to increasing the
economy in the state or in
bringing jobs to Lapeer
County, he says.
Because hes been a
county commissioner for 15
years, Kempf says he has a
good handle on the municipal
budgeting process, and he
believes that is paramount
for any elected official.
As for reaching across
the aisle to accomplish his
goals, Kempf says his record

speaks for itself.


It is not just a matter of
reaching across the aisle, he
says. Its necessary to be
able to work with people on
complex problems, and to
come up with solutions that
benefit the people of Lapeer
County.
Kempf says many of his
supporters are Democrats,
and though hes a lifelong
Republican he doesnt shy
away from listening to all
perspectives.
I think we have to work
together to come up with
solutions to the problems we
face, not to draw lines in the
sand, he says.
Kempf and his wife Joi
live in downtown Imlay City
where they own and operate
Kempfs Imlay City Florist.
He is an active member of
the Imlay City Lions Club,
Rotary Club and Eagles
Club, as well as the Imlay

from many
DeLuca
areas that are
essential to being a good representative of the people.
Guerrero DeLuca says
her experience as Mayor, a
teacher, and a corporate
manager overseeing a
multi-million dollar budget
portfolio make her uniquely
qualified for the job.
For those who know
me, know that I bring facts,
numbers and data to support
my positions, she says.
However, I also bring
fairness, cooperation,
transparency and problem
solving.
Middle-class values and
opportunities have built this
country, Guerrero DeLuca
says. It is time to start
making responsible decisions
in Lansing that reflect those
ideals.
If elected, her top
priorities would be restoring
safe roads and bridges,
investing in public education
and job creation.
Making sound financial
decisions in Lansing is the
key to getting these three
priorities accomplished,
Guerrero DeLuca says.
She says the formula for
road funding is flawed, with
little being funneled to
counties and local
municipalities. Shed also
take a look at how county
road agencies are forced to
compete for those dollars,
and at finding an equitable
tax structure to fix and

maintain the roads.


If we lived in Utopia, I
would promise never to raise
taxes to fund our roads, she
says. Unfortunately, we
do not and we must review
all options, as long as it is
fair and equitable.
Guerrero DeLuca
believes public schools are a
cornerstone of every
community, and big cuts in
state funding over the last
four years have had a
negative impact.
Each year local
administrators and school
boards have had to decide
what or who will be cut next
in order to make ends meet.
This is unacceptable for our
students, she says.
Guerrero DeLuca would
also take a look at the states
charter school system.
Michigan has the most
for-profit charter schools
than any other state. I believe
state taxpayer monies should
remain with traditional
public schools and non-profit
charters, she says. Our
children are not commodities
and the purpose of education
was never to make a buck
but to educate and prepare
our students for their
futures.
With regard to jobs,
Guerrero DeLuca says shed
help create a culture where
businesses can flourish
locally and on a statewide
level.
While we all know
government cannot create
jobs, it can and should create
a culture of cooperation
between our state and local
municipalities, she says.
Guerrero DeLuca is a
lifelong resident of Imlay
City. She and her husband
Joe, a 25-year veteran of the
Imlay City Police
Department, have two
children.

for employment in the real


world, he says. More needs
to be done. Our ISD has this
year established a program to
provide two years of college
level training so that our students can enhance their vocational skills or move on to
college as their choice may
be.
Howell says youths are
currently being saddled with
too much debt when they pursue higher education, and
often when finished find
themselves in low paying
jobs.
I want to see that
change, Howell says. More
state support needs to be
given for apprenticeships, on
the job training and vocational training throughout the
State of Michigan so that students can be matched up with
available jobs. Currently, we
have a large number of jobs
that go unfilled because of the
lack of trained applicants.
Howell recently retired
from a 41 year-long legal
career during which he served

Howells top priorities for

The legislature has failed
miserably in appropriating

that his approach would be
twofold: advocate for the
counties to receive a bigger
share of the gas tax revenue to
invest in roads, and secondly
make fixing the roads the
states top priority.
We need to divert money
from less important programs
so that our roads can be
repaired. I do not see a need
for a tax increase to accomplish this, he says.
As for jobs, Howell would
continue to push for more
vocational programs at the Ed

have already been highly successful when it comes to
careers for young people.

NORTH BRANCH
Republican Gary Howell
believes Lapeer County residents deserve effective representation, and he is the one
who will do just that if elected
to the 82nd District State
House seat on November 3.
Howell, an attorney and
U.S. Army veteran, is one of
11 Republicans and three
Democrats seeking the seat,
which was vacated by former
state rep Todd Courser in the
wake of a sex scandal and
botched attempt to cover it
up.
Howell, 67, says Lapeer
County deserves better than
what it got from Courser, who
he believes was never an
advocate for his constituents
from his first day in office in
January of 2015.
Our county has taken a
hit from all the adverse publicity relating to the events of
the last few months, Howell
says. More importantly, our
county has lacked effective
representation in Lansing.
My dedication to public service has led me to offer myself
as a candidate for state representative.
Howell says his experience as a municipal attorney

and service as Chair of the


Lapeer
County
Road
Commission and as a member
of the Lapeer County
Intermediate School District
board make him uniquely
qualified to tackle the job in
Lansing. His 40 years as a
farmer is another asset when
it comes to understanding the
importance of the county and
states agricultural industry.
And thats not all, when it
comes to his decision to enter
the race.
One other factor in
deciding to run is the broad
base of support I have here in
Lapeer County, Howell says.
I have been gratified by the
large number of friends, community leaders, business
owners, and local officials
who have stepped forward to
support my campaign.
Howell says hes received
many endorsements, including that of the Michigan
Chamber of Commerce, but
most of his campaign contributions have come from
Lapeer County residents and
organizations within the
county.
I was particularly gratified to receive the unanimous
endorsement of both the
Lapeer County Farm Bureau
and the Chamber of
Commerce, Howell says.

She arrived armed with facts
and data.
Margaret answered
questions concise and to the
point. Other candidates

seemed repetitive, some


seemed to read from a script.
Some were enthusiastic and
animated, at times drawing
chuckles from the crowd. It
was also clear, all candidates
are ready to put the debacle of
our former rep behind us.
They are ready to move
forward with the best interest
of Lapeer County and its

ince 82nd District State


House Rep candidate
Todd Courser seems to enjoy
writing fiction, I thought Id
take a minute or two to talk
about facts. Silly me, but
what with being in the business and all, the way things
really are can be quite
important.
I have used the phrase
word salad to describe
much of Coursers email
missives, and notice these
days the salads being tossed
with a liberal (uh, sorry
Todd) dose of fairy dust (not
that theres anything wrong
with that) and its bugging
me (oops, sorry again, Todd.
I mean bugging as in bothering, not wiretapping as is
your go-to explanation...)
So, lets start with
excerpts from the latest
Courser for state rep diatribe that greeted me in my
email inbox this morning:
Courser email: You
can either see through the
hype and lies of the
Progressive retreads at the
paper and in the main
stream media or you cant;
Translation: I like to
call the truth hype and
lies because I have no
defense for the way I acted
once Ihit Lansing. I had an
affair with another state rep,
was caught up in the drama;
didnt attend committee
meetings, was fairly regularly absent for those. I also
never passed one piece of
legislation, nor even had one
make it to committee. But I
am really adept at concocting a crazy email where I
called myself bisexual and
accused myself of paying for
sex with a male prostitute. I
also called my lover a
tramp in the email cause I

just love

women.

This was
my controlled
burn to
inoculate
the herd
so theyd
think some
big, nasty,
Lansing

mafia progressive
machine was hounding me.
Its more convenient than
admitting the truth that I was
a hypocrite and a manipulator who thinks the people
who elected me are ignorant
and malleable.
Courser email: ...you
can either see and understand that this was a political hit by employees who
turned away from the Liberty
movement and conspired
with the Progressive power
to deny the voice of 90K
people of Lapeer County or
you cant;
Translation: See prior
translation. I enjoy rewriting
history. This is Toddland
after all. In Todd we trust
and whatnot. I threw the
whistleblowing aides under
the bus. They refused to help
with the controlled burn.
Theyre really at fault here.
Theyre the ones to blame
for not turning a blind eye to
my duplicity and hypocrisy. I
call the shots here; isnt that
obvious by now?
Courser email: ...you
can either see how I stood
against the Liberal on slot
day after day...
(Record scratch sound):
Catherine here...on slot?
Okay. Ill skip that one.
Courser email: ...and
see that it took enormous

16% each.
It proves Margaret is a
leader, she is ready to take her
leadership to Lansing and
represent Lapeer County.
Lets all follow Margarets
lead and make Lapeer great
again. I urge you to vote for
Margaret Guerrero DeLuca.

Impressed with candidates skills, knowledge


I attended the candidates
forums at the Lapeer County
Sportsmens Club and at the
Ed Tech Center and was
impressed by not only the
turnout of the people, but how
the candidates expressed their
political positions. The candidate that I believed to have
shined that night was Margaret
Guerrero DeLuca. She

impressed me with her knowledge of the issues and her


delivery during her time to
speak helped me to understand she is the only candidate that understands and
cares for Lapeer County
seniors, middle class values,
public schools, personal
choices, job creation and the
only candidate that has a con-

structive plan to fix our roads


and bridges. As a wife of an
Imlay City policeman, she
also believes strongly in the
Second Amendment but
believes as 75 percent of gun
owners that legislators must
do something to curb the gun
violence in America. Children
in our schools should feel safe
and not worry about guns as

she stated in her debate and


she should know because she
is a school teacher.
I believe that Margaret
Guerrero DeLuca has the necessary skills and values to be
the next State Representative
of the 82nd District.
Respectfully,
Gary L. Cooley

Disgusted with final question at forum


I have to say while I
enjoyed most of the Candidate
Forum sponsored by the TriCity Times at Lapeer Ed Tech
on Oct. 13, I was appalled at
the Tri-City Times final
question of the evening. If
you were not running, who
among the other candidates
would you support? While
the audience low rumble
showed shock and laughter, I
am amazed that no candidate
called you out on this
question instead of answering
it. By asking this as a
question, Tri-City Times
picked a fictional scenario,
with no time or thought able
to be given to it by each
candidate. I truly believe each
candidate never wants to vote
for anyone but themselves in
the election for State Rep for
the 82nd District. Other
questions were typical issues
on which each already had a
stand, prepared for and had
researched. The who else
would you vote for question

was certainly not relative or


telling as it would never occur
to a candidate to vote for anyone but themselves.
It showed nothing of the
integrity of the paper and
good journalism, it was
simply
dramatics.
For
instance, one candidate said
theyd choose a hybrid of two
candidates, one from each
party. Not even possible. One
chose from the opposite party,
but when approached later,
regretted that answer. If they
had a week to think about it,
as they would when voting on
an issue in Lansing, I bet
many answers would change.
So if that question is to be
published, I suggest you go
back to each candidate and
ask, given time to think about
that, what would their answer
be now. Much more indicative of how they will decide
issues in Lansing. Put those
answers side by side if you
must report the first set.
I
personally
was

Its the actions, not the words that count


S

residents in mind.
It was evident Margaret
Guerrero DeLuca took
control. The final question of
the evening was other than
yourself, which candidate
would you vote for? top vote
getters
were
Margaret
Guerrero DeLuca with
25%. The next closest were
two
candidates
with

strength, tenacity, grit, fortitude, and courage to represent you or you cant; and
either you can see the enormous personal sacrifices
made on your behalf by
myself and my family or you
cant.
Translation: I am the
victim here, not you voters;
not my wife, not my family!
Not Gamrats family! Me!
Im the victim! It took all
my might to arrange those
trysts. Being a successful
cheater and liar isnt easy! It
took all my skills to create
that false flag email! It was
hell! I couldnt hardly stand
the pressure from the blackmailer who was probably
my lovers husband! Those
darn ingrates who insist that
I live what Ipreach are just
trying to destroy me because
Im such a courageous, gritty guy...with a heart condition to boot!
Courser email: The
Speaker barred the doors
from allowing the
Representatives to leave, to
eat, to even go to the bathroom unless they voted, and
locked the room for 14 hours
until 3 a.m. on 9-11-15,
when the Leadership refusing to allow bathroom
breaks, eating or even leaving the room forced Reps to
vote for expulsion.
Translation: State Rep.
Dan Lauwers (R-St. Clair
County) is an honest guy,
darn it! He was there on 9-11
and he told that Progressive
retread at the paper that Rule
32 was invoked. House
members could not leave the
chamber but they could use
the restroom as often as they
wished. There was also coffee, iced tea and water in the
back of the chamber for rep-

resentatives to consume. But


it sounds so much more harrowing and evil and dark to
assert that the House members were chained to their
desks with flogs in hand just
waiting to take me out. And
maybe saying that will
deflect from the fact that I
quit.
Courser email: ...It
was the Progressive
Leadership refusing to take
no for an answer. They
wouldnt accept anything
less than what they demanded. The peoples voice was
denied that night.
Translation: You dont
think Id allow my former
colleagues to control the situation, do you? I quit, but
Id prefer not to talk about
that. I have to have all the
control! All the time!
Because its all about me.
Quitting was my final...
uhm...half a peace sign
salute to those accountability-loving Establishment
Repubs. I courageously
and grittily robbed them
of the chance to kick me
out, but the herd wont
remember that! Theyll
remember my righteous
claims that THEIR voices
were taken away
that night when I pushed
my pen across that sheet
of paper and resigned. I
told the reporters it was a
huge weight lifted off my
shoulders, and they
reported that. Its all over
the internet, in black and
white all over the world but
I say it didnt happen!
You should believe me
because... well...youre the
herd. And controlled burns
are my specialty...

disgusted you didnt choose a


more relevant question when
the voters had so many more
real questions there would
have revealed their representation of the 82nd in Lansing.
There were many other
important issues such as
Common Core, Michigan
budget, their stand on womens issues, etc., that voters
want to know about. As voters, we took the time to come
out, put our questions out
there, and you chose a madeup fictional scenario that the
public and the candidates are
still trying to put into a perspective, like it actually meant
something. And it couldnt

possibly have meant anything.


It wasn't a real
scenario. If they thought
someone else was better for
the job, they wouldn't be
running for office.
Kudos to Lapeer Ed Tech
for their hosting of the event
and the students from the
culinary
program
who
provided refreshments for the
evening. Lapeer shines in that
aspect!

Editors note: The question referenced in this letter
was among those submitted
by area residents who attended the forum.

Courser alienated
bulk of Republicans
The Republican Party has
a chance to correct an error
made in the last primary when
Todd Courser was selected as
the candidate for State
Representative. The short
time he was in office should
be sufficient for voters to say,
Id vote for Donald the Duck
before Id vote for Todd
Courser.
The Detroit News recently quoted a Lapeer County
citizen saying, I think he's
definitely upsetting the right
people. I think that is
partially
correct.
He
definitely upset people but
that is not necessarily a good
thing. It is all well and good
to have a conservative philosophy and to be willing to
stand up for your values and
beliefs. However, politics is
the art of the possible and not
my way or the highway.
Every representative was
elected by the people in their
district and have as big a
claim to have their views
heard and considered as the
next. If anything is ever to be
accomplished, a politician
has to be willing to compromise. One may not get all that
you want but perhaps you
might get 75% of what you
want and the choice may well
be 75% or nothing. Alliances
have to be built and trust in
other members of your party
as well as members of the
opposite party to be able to
legislate in a manner that best
serves the State of Michigan.
An open mind, receptive to
alternate views is a necessity.

From my observation Todd


Coursers mind is a locked
vault that rejects any opinion
contrary to his own.
Todd Courser seems
unwilling to compromise. He
appears to have alienated the
bulk of the Republicans in
Lansing as well as the
Democrats. This has nothing
to do with his alleged extra
marital affair but solely
relates to his actions as a
representative. Our county
was poorly served when he
was our representative.
His resignation in the face
of overwhelming evidence of
his inappropriate actions only
serves to emphasize why he
should not be nominated. In
spite of his statements where
he acknowledged inappropriate behavior he now seems to
claim he is the victim of the
vast Republican conspiracy. Apparently he and
Hillary have that in common.
In my opinion if he
receives one vote that is
one too many. Lets nominate
a candidate who has wisdom,
judgment,
governmental
experience and a conservative
approach to politics. My
personal choice is Gary
Howell but there are
others who would likely do a
good job as well.
Last election the voters of
Lapeer County got what
they asked for when they
elected Todd Courser. Lets
not make the same mistake
again.

Good guys vs. bad guys


A

s my grandfather and I
watched intently on our
21-inch black and white
television, sometime in the
late 1950s, the big man in
short, tight trunks picked up
his opponent horizontally
above his head, spun around
and then slammed him hard
on the mat flat on his back.
As the crowd yelled encouragement, the big man then
climbed up the three ropes
in the corner of the ring and
dove from the top one down
directly on top of his prone
opponent, pinning the hapless mans shoulders to the
canvas. The referee dropped
to his knees and, on being
assured that both shoulders
were indeed touching the
mat, pounded his right hand
three times on the canvas. It
was over.
Dick the Bruiser was
declared the victor in another match on Motor City
Wrestling on WXYZ-TV,
Detroit hosted by Johnny
Slagle. (Later, there was
another show on CKLW,
Windsor, with Lord Layton.)

Detroit was
a hotbed of
professional wrestling
in the
1950s and
60s with
thousands
and thousands of
Rick Liblong
fans tuning
in on television or attending live
matches at Cobo Arena or
Olympia Stadium and other
local venues. My grandfather was one of those fans.
He wasnt much of a fan of
other sports but he loved the
rough and tumble of the
wrestling matches. I often
sat with him as he cheered
on his favorite, Dick the
Bruiser (real name Dick
Afflis), on TV.
Watching with him so
often I got so I knew the
names of most of the big
time wrestlers of the day.
There were good guys and
bad guys and the fans
would cheer or boo accordingly. In addition to the

All the Liblong day..

Bruiser, one of the bad


guys, there was Leaping
Larry Chene (pronounced
Shane), one of the good
guys. Leaping Larry would
jump up quickly and wrap
his legs around an opponents neck and flip him to
the canvas. Mark Van
Poppelen, formerly from
Capac, who emailed me and
suggested this column subject, said this about Chene:
I never missed a show on
Saturday afternoons with
Leaping Larry Chene (my
favorite) and others. I
remember when he wrestled
in Capac once and I went to
greet him when he arrived
(he was dressed in a suit). I
asked for an autograph but
neither of us had a pen so
instead he picked me up and
put me on his shoulders as
he walked into the gymnasium dressing room. When he
tragically died in a car accident I was so upset I didnt
want to go to school.
He added, I was so inspired
by these guys that I had
wrestling shows in my base-

ment and charged admission! I think I wore a ski
mask as a masked villain!
Some of the other wrestlers were The Sheik (Eddie
Farhat from Williamston,
MI), Bobo Brazil (Houston
Harris), Ricky Crusher
Cortez, Cry Baby Cannon
(George McCarther), Tony
Rocca William Haystacks
Calhoun and many, many
others. Dick the Bruiser
even wrestled, and defeated,
Alex Karras of the Detroit
Lions.
Once grandpa took me
to see a live card of
matches in Imlay City. It
was mostly fake, of course,
but they made it look real.

You could not convince my


grandfather that it wasnt
real even when we were sitting ringside and could see
the moves up close. I understand that most of the wrestlers were friends out of the
ring. When big names are
booked to perform several
nights a week you know
they cant get seriously hurt.
Too much money involved.
Ah, fond memories of
fun with grandfather. There
is still professional wrestling
but I admit I havent seen a
match since my grandfather
passed away long ago. Most
of the wrasslers, as he
called them are gone now,

Calling the cows down memory lane

t was my job
way back
when to mosey
down to the north
lane of our farm
on the corner of
south Shoemaker
and Hough roads
to round up the
cows and herd
them back to the

barn for the eve


nings milking.
They were let
down the lane following the mornings milking. I would call,
Caboss! Caboss! for Come
Bossie, Come Bossie and they

would leisurely and gladly head


back to the barn for their udders
were full of milk and they would be
glad to be milked. sometimes I
would take a book with me. I was
into reading Freckles and Girl of
the Limberlost and would sit
beneath a huge oak tree on the bank
of a crick that meandered through.
The tree is now dead but I can still
see it when down at the pond. It
brings back pleasant childhood
memories. Sometimes I would go
early enough to visit the two springs
that furnished the cows with fresh
water. Now they supply our pond
with water.
The farm was known as the

Everett Ferguson Farm and they


built the house that was home to me
for many years.
In a few years Red and I married. We rented Uncle Harry Witts
farm on Doran Road near Imlay
City. But I got terribly homesick for
my old home. I snuck over to my
parents and told them Ithought
they should retire and Red and I
could take over my beloved farm...
but dont tell Red my idea! It
worked!
Red thought the spring-fed pasture down the north lane would
make a good pond. So, Digger
Dan as two-and-a-half-year-old
grandson Curt called the big crane

that came and when I babysat for


him we would go down and watch
Digger Dan do his stuff.
Many good get-togethers have
been enjoyed there, and now it was
time for Digger Dan to return and
clean the pond. Alan took me down
a couple of times to watch the procedure.
Today part of the family
returned to see what had been
accomplished. Of course, it looks
sort of messy now but I got a kick
out of watching the little turtles that
had gathered to investigate. I guess
that is why I have been dubbed
Nature Girl.

Trip to Upper Peninsula brings aha moment


W

ere safely back home from


our little trip, happy we
went when we did instead of this
past weekend when we could have
been driving in some snow. A local
we met in a coffee shop told
us we were hitting the colors just
right in the Upper, and we certainly
did see some magnificent views.
The kids had arranged for some
lovely accommodations in Sault Ste.
Marie and Munising, and our first
excursion was to see a huge ship
reportedly the largest to pass
through the locks at Sault Ste.
Marieas it waited for the water
levels to adjust to allow its passage.
The vesselupwards of 1,000 by
100 feetreportedly could carry the
equivalent of 3,000 twenty-five ton

trucks or 700 train cars. Even as


I look at those numbers, Im
questioning
whether I wrote
that down
accurately.
I cant think in
those kinds of
measures, and
could easily have
gotten them
wrong. As I

review the
figures again, the

ones I copied
from a placard in
the information center, I realize Im
not sure whether the sign meant the
vessels listed could fit on the
freighter, or if the loads they could

carry could be carried by the cargo


liner. Either way, the numbers are
quite astounding, wouldnt you
agree?
Speaking of vast numbers is
reminding me to share an
experience of a few nights later. I
was lying awake, hashing over the
events of the previous day. Often
when that happens, I just give up on
sleep, and go read a little while. As I
passed a window, I couldnt help but
notice the night sky, studded with
myriads of stars. That reminded me
of the little stash of handouts I had
found the day beforea dozen or so
left over from a MOMS Night meeting. Copied on too nice of cardstock
to just toss, I had saved them. Here
is what they said:

College experience for


high school students

Editors note: The following guest column was


submitted by the counseling
office at Almont High School.
For more information contact the high school at
810-798-8595 or visit
www.almontschools.org.
hen you ask an Almont
student what they need
help with the most from a
counseling office, the
response is usually help in
choosing a career and how to
choose a college. With this in
mind, Sue Frederiksen,
counselor at Almont High
School (AHS) set a goal to
begin the process during the
sophomore year. The 10th
grade class was given the
opportunity to visit Baker
College in Flint last
December to explore STEM
options at a private school.
With the help of the English
teachers, Mary Campbell and
Tonya Halvorson, students
wrote a paper in the spring of
the year about their career
interests. To follow up the
paper, Ms. Frederiksen presented material on how to

choose a college and


research careers.
AHS then partnered up
with the Four County
Community Foundation and
Saginaw Valley State
University, a public university, to take the graduating
class of 2017 on a college
visit on October 9. Ms.
Frederiksen wrote a grant
asking for assistance with
transportation to take the
class on a college visit. In
communicating with the
admissions staff at SVSU an
agreement was signed where
SVSU would provide a free
lunch for the AHS students.
Jennifer Pahl, SVSU
College Admissions
Administrator, greeted the
Almont students at the door
and gave a brief synopsis of
what SVSU can offer students. Highlights were the
90+ undergraduate programs,
average class size is 23 students, all classes are taught
by professors, 93.6% of nursing students pass the nursing
licensing exam the first time,
scholarships are granted if

you have a 3.0 GPA and a 22


on the ACT, and in 2015
Victory Media named SVSU
a STEM Jobs approved
College. She also shared how
important it is for students to
get on a college campus to
make the determination on
the right college for them.
Students were given a tour of
the campus before being
treated to lunch in the
Marketplace.
Upon returning to AHS,
students were asked to evaluate the day. The overwhelming majority shared that the
day was very informational
and suggested that this
become a yearly activity.
Many of the students had
never been on the campus of
a public university and were
amazed at the opportunities
available to them. Several
stated that they are going to
work harder in the classroom
to increase their overall
grade point average because
they can get more scholarship money by working
harder. Overall the trip was a
monumental success.

THERE IS SOMETHING
COMFORTING ABOUT A
BILLION STARS
HELD STEADY BY A GOD
WHO KNOWS WHAT HE IS
DOING.
Oh! I knew what I would be
reading. Psalm 19. One verse in,
and I knew I could head back to
bed. But I didnt. I read a little
further, and then I turned off the
lamp and went back, knowing I
could turn over the cares of the
day to the One who can balance
billions of stars. Those numbers I
cant wrap my head around either,
but then, I dont have to. I just rest
in them.

e should travel while


our bones and bowels
still work, a sage said
long ago. Her quip caused me
pause. I hoped such expensive
adventure
would be
within our
reach before
my knees
and insides
gave out.
Sure,
we visited
Mom and
savored her

southern

summers.
One July we
drove our Volare station wagon
to Disney World, lodged in my
uncles time-share in Orlando
as their guests.
What our two surviving
daughters remember most
about that Disney trip is their
belated big sisters flatulence,
then rolling down windows for
fresh air.
In retrospect, boarding a plane
with Becky couldve been
risky. A family trip abroad was
a dim dream in the furthest
nebula of the universe.
Then, in the early 80s, a
company that offered trip
incentives hired my husband.
For our maiden destination,
my sister Patty shipped me a
box of her summer clothes
and solved my #1 problem for
touring Puerto Vallarta.
I farmed out our girls to
neighbors and friends for four
days and experienced the thrill
of swimming in the Pacific
Ocean. In spite of
Montezumas revenge upon
our return, I had tasted distant
travel and hungered for more.
Dear reader, weve since
flown to Hong Kong, Hawaii
and Londonsailed to
Pompeii and the Cliffs of
Dover. A cruisers nightmare,
our ship collided with a container vessel in the English
Channel. We stood in our
muster station, stunned by
drama, the other ship aflame
in its dark, watery grave.
Unharmed, we survived the
perils of a voyager.
When our youngest was
thirteen, I worked to pay her
fare for the companys
European road rally. It was a
remarkable cultural experience
to drive a BMW through
Germany, Switzerland and
northern Italy. What fun to
order venison pasta and sing
O Sole mio in a quaint
village overlooking the
Dolomites.
Paris was the following
years location, so it was our
Francophiles turn to travel.
Barely sixteen, she guided us
through the citys Metro to
patisseries, Luxembourg
Gardens and up the Eiffel
Tower. I first saw the sign of a
sojourner upon her in La Ville
Lumire.
And the eighteen hours of
confinement China bound?
Please, avoid drinking tea. I
couldnt sleep for two days.
I dressed for comfort and
drank plenty of water on my
flight over the Nile to visit
our sojourner in Uganda. She
and her husband greeted me
at Entebbe Airport with the
little boy they later adopted
and immigrated to California.
So when the day of departure
dawned upon my bum knee
two weeks ago, I slipped
into my cozy queen bee shirt
and black pants, tied my
walking shoes and asked
airport security for a
wheelchair. Within four
hours, my husband and I
flew above the Golden Gate
Bridge. The miracle of
modern travel.
I limped along the
boardwalk in Muir Woods
with our daughter who follows
the sages advice to extremes.
In the dappled light of giant
Redwoods, that enduring
vision of family travel
abroad gleamed brighter, drew
closer. Hope came into focus.

Property values rise, taxable values remain flat


By Maria Brown
Tri-City Times Assistant Editor

LAPEER COUNTY
Property values continue to
rise, Greg Hill told county
commissioners on Thursday,
but thats not great news for
county coffers since taxable
values have only crept up
slightly, .03 percent.
Hill presented his 2015
apportionment report last
week. Flat taxable value figures result from a low rate of
inflation, he said.
Lapeer Countys 2015
taxable value stands at $2.687
billion. The county millage,
which stands at 3.7886, gen-

erated $10.1 million in 2015


with an additional $3.8 million coming from 1.43 mills
in extra voted operating
funds.
Hill warned that Lapeer
County and much of Michigan
could encounter a Headlee

Water line contractors


working without permits

Lapeer County Road Commission


seeking opinions regarding options
By Maria Brown
Tri-City Times Assistant Editor

LAPEER COUNTY
The Lapeer County Road
Commission has stood their
ground and refused to issue
new permits for the KWA
water line but that hasnt
stopped contractors from
working.
According to county
engineer Ryan Doyle, contractors reached their limit for
laying new pipe early last
week but this Monday, they
resumed that activity without
the necessary permits.
We are talking with our
attorney about options. Then
we have to talk to our Board
and see what they want to
do, Doyle said, noting that a
meeting is slated for Monday.
Last month, road commissioners voted to revise
Genesee Countys permit,
effectively ending the current
permit and, from then on
requiring Genesee to apply
for new permits in one mile
segments. They stipulated
that restoration and road
repairs must be on schedule

by the time they reached the


315+100 station (a half mile
west of M-53 along Clear
Lake Road) or they would be
forced to stop laying pipeline.
Crews apparently reached
that point on October 13.
Doyle said progress is
being made on that restoration work but Genesee failed
to seek new permits before
new pipe laying began this
Monday, October 19.
Earlier this month,
Governor Rick Snyder called
for the expedited completion
of the Karegnondi Water
Authority pipeline in light of
water quality concerns in the
city of Flint. The water line is
due to deliver water from
Lake Huron to Genesee
County, succeeding the citys
reliance on the Flint River for
drinking water. The city cut
ties with Detroit Water and
had plans to continue sourcing water from the Flint River
until the KWA is completed
sometime in 2016.
Last week, with financial
assistance from the state, the
city temporarily reconnected
to the Detroit Water system.

Millage: Imlay City seeks


to improve streets, walks
from page 1-A
East
Second,
Cheney,
Melanie, Marilyn, Shirley
and Maple Vista.
City Manager Tom Youatt
noted that the aforementioned
streets do not require infrastructure upgrades, only
resurfacing.
He said city streets requiring infrastructure repairs will
be costly and will have to
wait until the citys budget
allows.
Youatt said he hopes
grant funding can be obtained
to help pay for street repairs
that require infrastructure
upgrades.
The need to rehabilitate
our city streets is real, said
Youatt. With this millage, all
the money raised will go
solely to repairing streets and

sidewalks in Imlay City. The


money will not go anywhere
else.
Track record favorable
Youatt pointed out that
Imlay
City residents have
demonstrated their support
for road improvements in the
past; a mindset he hopes will
translate to a majority of
votes on November 3.
Imlay City and the City
of Lapeer were the only
Lapeer County jurisdictions
to vote in favor of passage of
last Novembers 1.85-mill
tax levy for countywide road
improvements.
Though not necessarily a
mandate, Imlay City residents
approved the countywide
proposal by a margin of 448
residents in favor to 305
opposed.

Republican Ian Kempf responds to question as candidates (l-r) Jake Davison, James DeWilde, Rick
Guerrero Jr., Margaret Guerrero DeLuca, Gary Howell, Allan Landosky, Jan Peabody and Chris Tuski
listen in.

Forum:
from page 1-A
down in a resounding defeat,
legislators appear to be
dragging their feet on an
alternate proposal.
Against that political
backdrop, all 13 candidates
were asked the following
question: What will you do
to promote problem-solving
over political partisanship?
Several said they would
be willing to work with
those on the opposite side of
the political aisle.
Gary Howell said if
elected, he will be open to
the opinions and suggestions
of Democrats.
I would be ready to
repeal bad Republican policy, said Howell. I strongly

benefits should both parties


work together toward compromise.
Its time to put party
politics aside and to do
whats best for all of our
residents, Guerrero Deluca
said.
Pointing out that people
in her own party sometimes
disagree, Sharna Smith said
she will listen to the voices
of others, regardless of differing opinions or political
affiliations. Ithink working
together is the key, she
said.
Republican James
DeWilde alluded to a time
when representatives from
both major parties spent
time socializing outside of
the political arena.

opposed the decision to put
Proposal 1 on the ballot.
That was bad Republican
policy.
Candidate Russ Adams,
a Republican, said he has
grown weary of the ongoing
political gridlock in Lansing.
The governors position
that we have reached an
impasse on roads makes no
sense to me, Adams said.
You have to be able to
work together to get things
done. There have to be compromises. We cant say no
to everything.
Fellow Republican Ian
Kempf said he has considered differing opinions
throughout his two decades
of service as a Lapeer
County Commissioner and
manager of the Eastern
Michigan State Fair Board.
You simply cannot lead
by dictating to others,
Kempf said. Things can
only be accomplished by
working together. Im proud
to say that Ive been reaching across the political aisle
for 20 years to get things
done, and Ill continue to do
so if elected.
Democrat Margaret
Guerrero Deluca says shes
campaigned on the mutual

Its high time we do


that again, said DeWilde.
We have to be able to
work with the people across
the aisle. We accomplish
nothing without working
together.
Jake Davison suggested
that political partisanship is
not likely to go away any
time soon, even after the
November 3rd special primary election.
Having been an aide to
a former 82nd District
Representative and subsequent State Senator Jud
Gilbert, Davison says he
possesses the knowledge
and insights of a seasoned
insider in the state capital.
In Lansing people are
not suddenly going to
change their minds, he
said.
Jan Peabody, who finished second to Todd
Courser in the 2014 District
House race, said she does
listen to opinions of her
Democrat counterparts.
I work with all people
not knowing or caring
what party they are, said
Peabody. It matters not to
me if they are Republicans
or Democrats, though I will
not compromise my conser-

vative values.
Gun rights run table
On the matter of gun
rights, all 13 candidates said
they support the Second
Amendment and the right of
Americans to bear arms.
They disagreed somewhat on open carry laws
and allowing weapons in
schools, even when concealed.
Democrat R.D. Bohm
said he supports gun rights
but has concerns about new
gun legislation being proposed by State Sen. Mike
Green (R-Mayville).
Greens bill would prohibit openly carrying weapons in schools, day care centers, sports arenas, bars,
churches, entertainment venues, hospitals, casinos, college dorms and classrooms.
However, concealed weapons could be allowed in
those environments.
Howell said he supports
Greens bill, but with some
reservations.
Hes trying to protect
the second amendment by
not allowing open carry in
schools, said Howell.
Having people trained in
weapon use in schools
would also be helpful.
Landosky said the Green
bill is essentially designed to
stop scaring people who
are alarmed by the sight of
people open carrying in public venues.
Other gun-related comments from the candidates
included:
Bohm: Common sense
must prevail. To put guns in
places where arguments can
start is not a good idea.
Davison, a supporter of
Greens bill, said banning
guns anywhere violates the
rights of law-abiding people.
DeWilde said he would
draw the line on allowing
guns in places that serve
alcohol.
Guerrero Deluca, who
is married to an Imlay City
police officer, said the
majority of people in law
enforcement oppose guns in
schools.
Kempf favors the presence of licensed police liaison officers or trained security personnel in schools. He
does not like the idea of
mandating teachers to train
in the use of weapons.
Teachers are there to teach
our kids, he said, not to
serve as security.
Peabody: Ialso support the use of school liaison
officers in our schools.
So why the election?
The Tues., Nov. 3 special election to elect a new
82nd District Representative
from Lapeer County was
necessitated by the recent

resignation of Todd Courser.
Courser had been the
subject of a Detroit News
investigation into his extramarital relationship with fellow Tea Party conservative,
Rep. Cindy Gamrat of
Plainwell, and the extraordinary measures they took to
obstruct information and
cover up the affair.
In the early hours of
Friday, Sept. 11, Courser
opted to resign his post,
rather than face imminent
expulsion by fellow House
members.
Inexplicably, Courser
went to the Lapeer County
Courthouse on the next business day to file paperwork
to run for his former seat in
the November election,
which was required to pick
his successor.
The special election will
cost Lapeer County residents about $120,000.
The Republican and
Democrat winners on Nov. 3
will challenge one another
in a general election on
March 8, 2016.
In the meantime, Lapeer
County will be without representation in Michigans
House of Representatives.

RURAL LIFESTYLES

Sumac:
moniker
comes
from the
soft hairs
that cover
its branches, much
like the
velvet
found on a
deers ant
lers.
Smooth
Brown
sumac
doesnt
exhibit these hairs and crosses between staghorn and
smooth are common, the
OSU Extension experts say.
Poison sumac is also hairless
but can be distinguished from
other kinds by its white fruit
and smooth-edged leaves.
Staghorn sumac produces red

fruit in cone-shaped clusters


which start to appear in the
spring. Some birds use these
as a food source later in the
year.
According to the OSU
Extension bulletin, Native
Americans used sumac as an
antiseptic and astringent and
in place of tobacco.
Sumac is a spice commonly found in Middle
Eastern cooking, made from
grinding the dried fruit. It
appears this food product
comes from another variety
of the plant that grows in that
region of the world. Its used
in place of lemon, offering
sourness and astringency to
dishes.
Ornamental varieties of
sumac are offered to home
gardeners too although most

experts warn they can be


aggressive growers, spreading rapidly by runners.
Tiger Eyes sumac features chartreuse foliage in the
spring and summer before
turning a brilliant orange
color in the fall. It can grow
up to eight feet tall and wide.

ACROSS MICHIGAN
This past spring poultry
farmers across the United
States were affected by a
highly pathogenic avian
influenza virus, which has
been documented as the largest domestic animal health
disaster in U.S. history.
Once again, the Michigan
departments of Agriculture
and Rural Development and
Natural Resources reminds
domestic poultry owners to
be aware of the disease risks
present during the fall
migration of wild birds. Wild
birds can carry various
diseases that may spread to
poultry operations if the wild
and domestic birds have an
opportunity to intermingle.
Avian influenza viruses

have been found in many wild


bird
species
including
shorebirds,
quail
and
pheasants, but are most often
found in migratory waterfowl
like ducks, geese and swans.
Although no cases of
HPAI were detected in
domestic birds in Michigan,
backyard poultry owners
should take precautions to
prevent contact between
their birds and wild birds.
Precautions include:
Restricting
outdoor
access, including access to
open ponds.
Using well water or
municipal water as drinking
water for birds.
Keeping poultry feed
secure so its not accessible to
wild birds or rodents.

Avian influenza is a
virus circulating in the
environment, said Dr. James
Averill, MDARDs State
Veterinarian.
Practicing
proper
biosecurity and preventing
contact with wild birds should
always be a priority for
poultry owners.
The DNR routinely
conducts avian influenza
surveillance on wild bird
populations,
examining
deceased wild birds as
well as live-trapped wild
birds.
Waterfowl hunters should
have little concern about
avian influenza, but are
encouraged
to
follow
precautions when processing
waterfowl, such as not

eating or drinking while


handling birds; wearing
gloves while processing
birds; avoiding direct contact
with and then quickly and
properly
disposing
of
intestinal contents, and thoroughly washing hands and
utensils.
If you think you have a
sick backyard bird, contact
your local veterinarian.
However, if your flock is
experiencing severe illness or
multiple death losses, contact
MDARD at 800-292-3939 or
for after-hours emergencies
call 517-373-0440. Michigan
residents who notice the death
loss of three or more wild
birds should report it to the Avian flu concerns prevented local 4-Hers like

umac is pretty reliable


when it comes to providing some great fall
color but, in my opinion, the
hues seem especially vibrant
this year. This wild shrub is
pretty much along every road
but goes practically unnoticed until the month of
October.
According to Ohio State
University Extension, staghorn sumac (Rhus typhina) is
a member of the cashew family and native to the eastern
North America with a range
from Quebec in the north to
Georgia in the south and
Iowa to the west.
Considering it shows up just
about everywhere, it should
be no surprise and sumac
will tolerate all kinds of soil.
Its believed the staghorn

Worried about stumbling upon the poisonous variety of sumac? Take a look
at the leaves. Staghorn sumac has leaves with a serrated edge while poison
sumac features smooth-edged foliage.
There are two low-growing
varietiesfragrant sumac
and Gro-Lowthat can
serve as a groundcover or
low hedge. Both boast shiny
green foliage during the
growing season. The fragrant
variety features a reddishpurple hue in fall while the

Fall migrations increase avian flu risks

Gro-Low type produces red


berries in fall and winter.
One sumac thats been
bred to stay tame in terms of
size is Prairie Flame. The
male clone produces flowers
but does not fruit.

Is a warmer, drier winter in store?


By Maria Brown

Tri-City Times Assistant Editor

TRI-CITY AREA
Forecasters at the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administrations Climate
Prediction Center issued the
U.S. Winter Outlook last
week, calling for above-average
temperatures
and
below-average precipitation
for the Upper Midwest,
including Michigan.
Playing a big factor in
those predictions is an El
Nio, among the strongest on

record.
A strong El Nio is in
place and should exert a
strong influence over our
weather this winter, said
Mike
Halpert,
deputy
director, NOAAs Climate
Prediction Center.
While temperature and
precipitation
impacts
associated with El Nio are
favored, El Nio is not the
only
player.
Cold-air
outbreaks and snow storms
will likely occur at times this
winter.
However,

intensity of these events cannot be predicted on a seasonal


timescale.
Other factors that often
play a role in the winter
weather include the Arctic
Oscillation, which influences
the number of arctic air
masses that penetrate into
the South and noreasters
on the East Coast, and the
Madden-Julian Oscillation,
which can impact the
number of heavy rain
storms in the Pacific
Northwest, NOAA said in
a press release.

Landosky would bring


business model to Lansing
Lapeer Republican in race for 82nd District seat
By Catherine Minolli
Tri-City Times Editor

LAPEER Republican
Allan Landosky wants to
bring a little business sense to
Lansing, and he feels hes the
guy to do just that.
The 62-year-old engineer
believes his 35 years of experience on complex projects as
both a team leader and team
builder will serve him well
should he be elected to the
82nd District State House
seat.
Landosky is among 11
Republicans and three
Democrats seeking the office
vacated last month when former state rep Todd Courser
resigned in the wake of a sex
scandal and bizarre attempt to
cover it up.
Landosky says along with
his engineering and science
background and experience,
his family also serves as
motivation to make a change

Work to get to and maintain a higher level of taxpaying employment.


Work with governors budget and revenue team to ensure there is fairness of tax application.
Support and communicate on a routine basis to the constituents of Lapeer County pending
legislative bills and legislative progress.
My plan is to work in the legislature like I did in private business, putting in the time and
effort to get solutions and progress on issues critical to both the state and Lapeer County.

I have the highest concern for the future welfare
and success of my children,
their spouses, and my grandchildren, Landosky says.
This is my primary
motivation for seeking elected office.
Landosky says his experience in the automotive and
utility industry makes him
well suited for what lies ahead
should he be elected.
My experience working
on the onerous regulations
and the general political disregard for the cost of taxation
and general inaction have led
me to be a candidate for the
82nd district seat, he says.
If elected, Landoskys
goals include achieving and
maintaining a higher level of
taxpaying
employment,
which he would do primarily
by promoting long range regulation stability and project
funding to set the course for
business growth.
Hed also work with the
governors budget and revenue team to make sure there
is fairness in the tax application process. Hed work to
communicate with Lapeer
County residents on pending
legislation and the legislative
process.
I would explain what
this means to the residents of
Lapeer County relative to
implementation and taxation, he says.

the heels of a communitywide


survey, during which those
who regularly traverse the
M-53 corridor were asked to
respond to a series of questions pertaining to safety,
public access, physical
upgrades and other needed
improvements.
The open house is a followup to the survey, said
Imlay City Manager Tom
Youatt. The ideas and suggestions provided in that
survey helped shape the
development of the concept
plans and proposed improvements.
Youatt said Wednesdays
open house will inform the
public about the results of the
survey and of specific
improvements being consid-

ered for implementation


along the M-53 corridor.
Visitors are encouraged

M-53 and to view concept
maps and other information,
and share their ideas, Youatt
said.
He noted that in addition
to city officials, representatives from the Spicer Group
engineering firm will be
available to meet with residents and answer questions
pertaining to future upgrades
along M-53.
Representatives
from
CNRailway, Michigan Dept.

Corridor Plan is identified as
a goal in the Imlay City
Master Plan.

Six residents vie for four commission seats


Im definitely in favor of
Three incumbents, three newcomers in Imlay race growth,
but not at the expense
opportunities they need.

IMLAYCITY Six
residents are running for four
open seats on the Imlay City
Commission in the Tuesday,
November 3 election.
The candidates include
three incumbents: Brian
Badder, Al Ramirez and
Bob Tanis; along with newcomers Joi Kempf, Evelyn
Machleid and Mike Romine.
The three candidates with
the highest vote totals will be
elected to four-year terms.
The fourth-highest vote recipient will serve a two-year
term.
Candidate Brian Badder,
31, is a lifelong area resident
and has lived in Imlay City
since 1992.
A 2002 graduate of Imlay
City
High
S c h o o l ,
Badder
is
employed
full-time by
the
Imlay
City
school
Brian
district,
Badder
where
he
serves
as
chairman of the school districts AFSCME union #1421.
He also works weekends
as a part-time cook at Imlay
City Big Boy.
Badder has served on the
Imlay City Commission since
2012, having been appointed
to a post following the resignation of Arlan Winslow. Hes
also served on Imlay Citys
Planning Commission and
Zoning Board of Appeals.
Badder said he has
enjoyed the opportunity to
serve the community, and for
that reason, is seeking another
term on the commission.
Ihave no personal agendas or axes to grind, said
Badder. Being able to serve
Imlay City has been very satisfying. Id like to keep doing
so on behalf of my fellow
residents and taxpayers.
Badder is pleased with the
progress the city has made in
recent years, and envisions
even better things to come.
There are a lot of important issues were working on
right now, he said, including infrastructure projects and
a new contract for water
delivery for our city.
Im pleased to see our
involvement in the Americas
Best Communities (ABC)
program and the efforts of our
SEEDGroup, said Badder.
I
also think some good
things are going to come out
of the M-53 Corridor plan,

with regards to traffic flow,


new growth and physical
improvements along the highway.
Iconsider Imlay City a
small city, he said, but with
big opportunities for those
who decide to live or work
here.
I have an open mind and
am able to work well either
independently or with the
group to help get things
done for the city, said
Badder. I enjoy being on the
commission and I want to
keep doing it.
Incumbent Al Ramirez is
another city commission candidate with a long family connection to Imlay City.
Ramirez is a former Imlay
City Police reservist, Lapeer
County United Way Executive
Board member and operated
Imlay Citys Brotherhood

He worked in management at Pinnacle/Vlasic

year.
Ramirez

commission.
A strong proAl
ponent
of
public safety Ramirez
and
for
upgrading the citys streets
and infrastructure, Ramirez
said he is pleased with the
progress the city has made in
recent years.
I think we made a good
selection with the hiring of
our city manager (Tom
Youatt) and our DDA director
(Dana Walker), Ramirez
said. I also think we have
good city employees and
strong department heads.
Everyone, including the city
commission, seems to be
working together. Theres a
lot of cooperation.
Ramirez considers negotiating a longterm contract with
Detroit Water as particularly
vital to the citys stability and
growth.
Water, infrastructure and
public safety are the keys to
bringing new residents, businesses and jobs to Imlay
City, he said.
If elected, Id like to see
us continue resurfacing our
streets for our residents,
Ramirez continued. If residents vote to pass the street
millage
proposal
on
November 3, well be able to
get started doing that.
I would like to see more

According to Michigan

if they are age 60 years-old or
older; unable to vote without
assistance at the polls; expect-

said. We need something


that will bring more people to
the downtown district.
Otherwise, I like to see
everyone working together,
said Ramirez. I like seeing
cooperation between the city
and the (Imlay) township and
with the (Eastern Michigan)
fair board. All of those things
seem to be happening. I like
being a public servant and
want to continue doing that.

I really feel like the city
is on the right path right now,
said Tanis, and I want to
continue to be a part of that.
Tanis said he has not
always felt that way, noting
there is a spirit of cooperation
within the city that had not
existed for some time.
I think we are all working together in a way that was
not happening before, he
said. Iappreciate that the
city manager (Tom Youatt)
keeps us well informed about
things that are going on with
the different city departments.
There seems to be good
communication and everyone
is working together for whats
best for the city, Tanis continued. That includes the
commission, our city employees, the DDA and everyone.
Tanis said his experience
as a firefighter has been beneficial, particularly when his
suggestions or input are
sought out by the commission.
I think it helps both the
commission and the fire
department in terms of keeping everyone informed, he
said. The reason I want to
run again is because I feel
good about the way things are
going. I want to help keep it

that way.
Joi Kempf, 54, believes
her experience as an Imlay
City business owner, public
servant and community volunteer have laid the groundwork for her bid for a seat on
the city commission.
T h e
owner
of
Kempf s
Imlay City
Florist
for
more than a
decade, she
also
has
Joi
experience at
Kempf
the county
level; having served on the
steering committee for the
establishment of Lapeer
Countys
Habitat
for
Humanity. She also sat on
Habitats Board of Directors
and created its HabiChatter
newsletter. For 20 years, she
was the summer program
director for the City of
Lapeers
Parks
and
Recreation.
Kempf has served on the
Imlay
City
Downtown
Development Authority for
more than 12 years, as a board
member, vice chairperson,
and now as the DDA Chair.
Kempf is currently the
vice-chair of the Imlay City
Area Chamber of Commerce.
Over the past 18 years, she
has been a volunteer for the
Imlay City Blueberry Festival,
Lapeer County Agricultural
Society and at the Eastern
Michigan Fairgrounds.
Kempf said she is very
pleased with the citys ongoing progress and wants to participate in that process.
Things are so positive
right now, she said. Its
been exciting to see and I
want that spirit of cooperation
and positivity to continue.
Ive made a commitment
to Imlay City, said Kempf. I
live here, work here and have
my business here. I want to
keep things on the right track.
I love this town, she
said. Its a great place with
caring people and lots of
friendly people I like that
aspect of this community.
While generally pleased
with the way things are going,
she would like to see increased
business and job opportunities citywide.
Right now, the citys
industrial park is full, Kempf
noted. But Id like to see
new businesses downtown,
possibly another restaurant.
My goal would be to
continue enhancing our community, so residents are provided the things, choices and

of losing our communitys


charm.
Im running for city
commission because I feel I
have the experience, business
insight and a genuine affection for this community,Kempf said. I would
represent the interests of my
fellow residents with the same
dedication I give all other
aspects of my life.
Kempf has been married
to
Lapeer
County
Commissioner Ian Kempf for
21 years. Ian also serves as
Fair Manager of the Eastern
Michigan State Fairgrounds.
Evelyn Machleid, 38, has
been a resident of Imlay City
for six years.
She is a 1995 graduate of
Capac High School and is
currently employed at Rubber
Enterprises in Imlay City.
Machleid said she is seeking a commission seat to represent the concerns and
interests of her fellow
residents.
Ithought about this a lot
before deciding to run,
s a i d
Machleid.
There is no
better way to
have
an
impact
on
y o u r
Evelyn
community
Machleid and neighbors
than
by
serving.
Though she sees a lot of
good things happening in the
city, Machleid is frustrated
with the number of empty
buildings in the downtown
district.
The downtown area has
been revamped, but theres
really nothing to do down
there, she said. We need a
burger bar, or a pub, or a
Michigan micro-brewery;
some things to bring people
downtown.
We also need more
things for kids to do after
school, she continued. We
need to create a community
center. I think we have enough
people who would support an
idea like that.
Machleid alluded to what
she considers to be high rental
costs, which might be
discouraging
prospective
business owners from coming
downtown.
There needs to be more
incentives and good reasons
for
people to come
downtown, she said. All we
have is the Farmers Market,
the summer concerts and the
Blueberry Festival. There

girls golf team, consisting of five
sophmores and a freshman have caught
the attention of Division 4 squads and

Raiders fall point shy of BWAC title share


By Kevin Kissane
Tri-City Times Sports Editor

ALMONT Almont
concluded the Blue Water
Area Conference portion of
its schedule with a narrow
28-27 defeat to host Cros-Lex
in a Blue Water Area
Conference varsity football
battle last Friday night.
With the decision, CrosLex improves to 6-2 overall
and ends BWAC play sporting a 5-2 record. Almont
drops to 6-2 this season and
wraps up league action at 5-2.
Going into the game we
had the mind set it was for a
BWAC
championship,

Almont Coach James Leusby


said. All we needed was a
little help from Richmond and
for us to win to get a piece of
the title, he noted.
Unfortunately, we could
not hold up our end. I am
proud of my kids and the way
they handled the ups and
downs of tonights game. It
would have been easy for the
kids to hang their heads after
Cros-Lex scored on the opening kickoff. But they didnt
and instead we put a drive
together that would get us
right back in the game behind
the running of Boyd Glenn
and our newly put together Boyd Glenn, of Almont, holds on to the football while fending off a Cros-Lex
offensive line. We will turn defender during Fridays BWAC gridiron confrontation.

Almont will conquer Crestwood Friday


I

t is hard to believe that


the regular season draws
to a close in just a few days
from now.
Here is a look at this
weeks contests, all of
which are scheduled for
Friday at 7 p.m., and the
teams I predict will prevail:

Football...
Dearborn Heights
Crestwood (4-4) at Almont
(6-2).
There is no doubt in my
mind that this battle should
be the most entertaining one
offered this week. That is
why I suggest you bundle up
and head on out to watch
this clash.
Dearborn Heights
Crestwood, which competes
in the Western Wayne
Athletic Conference, heads
into the battle fresh off a
21-13 road win against

nonleague
counterpart
Garden
City.
Almont,
meanwhile,
enters the
fray coming off a

narrow
28-27
league road setback to CrosLex.
Almonts upcoming
assignment is certainly not a
pushover and I fully expect
the outcome to stay up for
grabs for awhile. I believe
the contest is tied at the halftime break, before the
Raiders pull away for a
30-20 victory.
Imlay City (2-6) at
Southfield Christian (3-5).

Though not a marquee


matchup by any means, this
clash has the potential to be
a contest where the outcome
remains in doubt until the
end.
Southfield Christian, a
member of the Michigan
Independent Athletic
Conference, will be looking
to bounce back from a 40-12
loss to league rival
Rochester Hills Lutheran
Northwest last Saturday at
Grosse Pointe Woods
University Liggett.
Imlay City, meanwhile,
will be aiming to gain a
favorable verdict after
dropping a 48-6 outcome to
visiting Blue Water Area
Conference adversary Yale
last Friday.
By all accounts this one
is a tossup. Just a hunch,
but I predict a 20-18 upset
victory for the Spartans of

Imlay City High School.


Capac (2-6) at
Sandusky (8-0).
This contest pits a pair
of teams coming off
lopsided victories last
week.
Sandusky enters the fray
fresh off a 54-12 road
triumph against non-league
foe Memphis, while Capac
will aim to make it
back-to-back wins after
rolling to a 56-14 victory
over Blue Water Area
Conference rival Armada at
home.
Capac, which looked
good in its triumph a week
ago, will have to step up its
level of play significantly to
make this a competitive
matchup.
I believe they start out
the game strong and stay
around for awhile.
However, the obstacle they

are up against will prove too


much to overcome.
Give me Sandusky to
post a 30-12 win here.
Dryden (2-6) at
Deckerville (7-1).
This contest pits a pair
of teams which won with
ease in their gridiron confrontations a week ago.
Deckerville is coming
off a 50-6 rout of league
counterpart Peck, while
Dryden made non-conference foe Covert absorb a
55-0 loss at Webberville.
Peck, lest I remind you,
handed host Dryden an
81-32 setback earlier this
season. That leads me to
believe Deckerville is the
real deal.
When the clock zeroes
out for the last time, give me
Deckerville to lock up the
league title with a
40-18 victory.

42-11

Monday, October 12.


For Imlay City, Emma
Sellers led the way with five
points. She was backed by
Kayla Rossen and Abigail
Thibodeau (four points each),
Amelia Chavez (two) and
Gia Hart (one).

Imlay City drops home finale to Yale

Photo by Kevin Kissane

IMLAY CITY Imlay


City dropped a 48-6 verdict to
visiting Yale in a Blue Water
Area Conference varsity
football meeting last Friday
night.
With the decision, Yale
goes to 3-5 overall and 3-4 as
far as BWAC clashes are
concerned. Imlay City slips
to 2-6 this season, including a
2-5 showing when they square
off versus league adversaries.
Yale took advantage of
our slow start, Imlay City
Coach Steve Lestage said.
We were able to get a little
life when Pat Pauli returned a
kickoff for a touchdown, he
noted.
Yale extended their lead
with a strong ground game.
We were unable to move the
ball on offense due to their
pressure up front. We played
better defensively in the
second half and kept Yales
offense scoreless in the third
quarter. Yale then tacked on
two more scores in the fourth
quarter to close out the win.

Imlay City Coach Steve Lestage watches a play


unfold during a BWAC game at home.
In Fridays meeting, Yale
charged out to a 21-6
advantage after one quarter
was done.
The
next 12-minute
stretch would see Yale add 13
points, while holding Imlay
City to none. That left them

holding a sizable 34-6


cushion at the halftime break.
Quarter number three
would prove scoreless.
Yale then outscored Imlay
City 14-0 the rest of the way,
good enough to close out a
48-6 win when the final

second ticked off the clock.


Imlay City generated
their six-point total courtesy
of a 75-yard kickoff return
for a touchdown by Pat Pauli.
For the evening, Dylan
Hammond completed one of
12 pass plays for eight yards
as Imlay Citys quarterback.
His successful toss went
to Seth Reiff.
The Imlay City ground
attack generated 91 yards on
11 totes.
Individually, Pauli (47
yards on 11 totes) notched
Imlay Citys best credentials.
The remaining 14 Spartan
rushes netted a combined
44-yard gain.
Seth Hawthorne (11
stops) and Nick Sears (nine
tackles)
paced
Imlay
Citys defense.
Jonathan
Keeley (eight stops) backed
their performances.
Imlay City will look to
bounce back this Friday
when
it
travels
to
Southfield Christian for their
season
finale. The nonleague clash is slated to get
underway at 7 p.m.

Routs: Capac runs over

from page 1-B

The victorious Capac side
produced their 56-point total
aided by a Jeremy Webster
five-yard touchdown run
(followed by a successful
extra-point kick courtesy of
Megan Jamison); an Ian
Detroyer 65-yard touchdown

four-yard touchdown run
(followed by a successful
extra-point kick courtesy of
Jamison); and a Jacob Parski
39-yard touchdown run
(followed by an accurate
extra-point
boot
from
Jamison).
For the evening, Boers
completed two of six pass
plays for 15 yards as Capacs
quarterback. He threw zero
interceptions along the way.
His successful throws
were distributed to two
different targets. Their ranks

consisted of Noah Burgess


(one catch for 15 yards) and
Parski (one reception for a
four-yard loss).
The Capac ground attack
chewed up 387 yards of

five sophomores and one
freshman and were the
youngest team that qualified
for states, he noted.
If this team of girls

even greater success in the

start.
Zimmerman said the
conditions the golfers
encountered at states were
difficult.
The conditions were not
optimal for scoring,
Zimmerman observed. The
temperature was in the 40s
and winds were gusting up
to 20 miles per hour, he
noted.
