Defense Attorney Matthew S. McKone was
assisted by attorney Scott J. Gould of Owosso in Zach’s defense. A not guilty plea was
entered. McKone questioned investigators
whether heroin usage could have contributed
to the shooting.
If James is found guilty, the premeditated
murder charge carries with it a sentence of life
in prison without possibility of parole.

“Starting in July, several of CMU’s third-year medical students will begin to utilize the Memorial staff
and facilities, as well as those of several physicians
in private practice, in fulfilling their Comprehensive
Community Clerkship,” said Dr. Michael Schmidt,
CMU’s Regional Assistant Clerkship Director. “This
phase of the student physician’s clinical education
comes after completing two years of rigorous classroom work in which all aspects of human medicine
are taught along with learning the basic clinical skills
needed to accurately obtain a patient’s medical history, perform a physical examination and undertake
diagnostic decision-making.”
The third and fourth years of medical school involve the further development of patient care skills.

At Memorial, students will be exposed to primary
care practices, as well as some specialty care. “The
process is not mandatory for either medical staff
members of patients,” says Dr. Schmidt. “Patients
can become teachers and assume the most valuable
role in educating the next generation of doctors.
Nevertheless, the decision to allow a medical student
to take part in one’s care will always be left to the patient to decide. If a patient says, ‘no,’ then the student
will not be taking part in their care. Obviously, we
hope patients will enthusiastically say ‘yes!’”
Memorial welcomes this development and recognizes this as a win-win for the medical school, the community, and the hospital. According to Brian Long,
FACHE, president and CEO of Memorial Healthcare,
“Having these medical students in the community
is great for our clinical staff, reinforcing the need to
stay up-to-date and progressive as these students begin to find their way in the world of modern health
care. Teaching is a great way to learn. In addition,
having the students here at Memorial, a top-notch facility, is a great way to show these young doctors just
what this fine community, this great hospital, and this
outstanding medical staff has to offer as a potential
future home.”
“The staff and administration hope the community
will embrace this tremendous opportunity for growth
and service to the education of future physicians.
Please join us in welcoming these fine students to our
community,” adds Long.

A Message from the DNR
The DNR urges caution when using fireworks as
well as enjoying campfires over the holiday weekend. Warm weather and family gatherings can make
the Fourth of July a fun time with great memories.
But before you celebrate, the Michigan Department
of Natural Resources is asking residents and visitors
to make sure they understand the importance of fireworks and campfire safety.
“With folks filling state parks, campgrounds and
backyards to celebrate the Fourth of July, it’s vital
that precautions are taken prior to lighting campfires
and setting off fireworks,” said Dan Laux, DNR fire
prevention specialist. “You can have fun while celebrating with friends and family, even if you’re being
safe and making sure your property and our natural
resources are protected. The best way to avoid the
risk of starting a wildfire this holiday weekend is to
attend public fireworks displays and leave the lighting to the professionals.”
The National Fire Protection Association estimates
that local fire departments respond to an average of
19,700 fires caused by fireworks each year. For those
planning to use fireworks, the DNR suggests keeping these safety tips in mind: *Sparklers can reach
1,800 degrees Fahrenheit — hot enough to melt gold.
Always place sparklers in a bucket of water when
they have gone out; when thrown on the ground, they
can cause grass fires.
*Point fireworks away from homes and keep them
away from brush, grass and leaves. *Chinese lanterns can stay airborne for 20 minutes and reach
heights up to 1 mile high before coming down in
unplanned locations. The open flame has the potential to start fires.
*Soak all fireworks in water before throwing them
in the trash.
Laux said that in addition to fireworks safety, people should keep the following things in mind when
enjoying their campfires: *Use fire rings in nonflammable areas when
possible. *Never leave
a campfire unattended.
*Keep a water source
and shovel nearby. *Place

to make sure no embers are left.
“Fireworks and campfires are a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July, but you’ll enjoy the holidays much more knowing that your family and your
property are safe,” Laux said. “Fire prevention is
everyone’s responsibility.”

TOURS, OPEN HOUSE – The Commons, a Memorial Healthcare Community Development, will be hosting a community ribbon cutting and open
house 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, July 9, at 2085 E. M-21, via the new Caledonia
Drive on the west side of Godwin’s Furniture.
“The Commons is a development targeted at providing the community with

from the Shiawassee County Medical Care Facility will be on-site with renderings of their new facility planned for a 10-acre site in The Commons just
north of Home Depot, and expected to open in late 2016, replacing Pleasant
View in Corunna. Light refreshments and tours will be available.

SITE WORK for the new Owosso Charter
Township Hall and Fire Hall on S. Delaney
Road across from Georgia Pacific is expected to
be underway Monday morning, by Timberland
Development,
said
Township
Building
Inspector/Zoning Administrator Bob Delaney
on Thursday.
The about 13,000-square-foot building includes
about 5,000 square feet for the Township Hall
and offices with the Fire Hall having four bays
and related offices/storage areas. There will also
be a basement.
“Timberland has been the contractor on
Memorial Healthcare projects, including the new
medical offices on the east side of Ovid,” said
Supervisor Danny Miller. “We’re hoping to be
able to use the hall by late this year.”
The contract is for $1,225,000 “and nothing is
being borrowed. We have set aside money for the
project by both the township and the Fire Fund,”
said Miller.
This rendering of the new Hall/Fire Hall is displayed at the present hall, 2998 W. M-21.
