In the wake of voter rejection Tuesday, Nov. 4, of the 1.5-mill, five year
proposed tax levy for Sheriff’s Office
services, the Shiawassee County Board
of Commissioners Finance and County
Administration meeting Monday afternoon is expected to list the proposed
2015 county budget – with no money
for Sheriff’s Road Patrol along with
other cutbacks.
Tuesday’s vote was 9,556 for the proposal – 14,077 against, in unofficial tallies, subject County Board of Canvassers
meetings to certify the results.
Sheriff George Braidwood said Wednesday afternoon his office was working on
its proposed 2015 budget with a 16-person reduction. Commissioners have said
in the past that other county operations
will be affected without the Sheriff’s Proposal funding – and that will mean other
departments will be affected, meaning
fewer personnel in offices, thus some offices may have to reduce the hours they
are available to the public.
The 2015 budget proposal for Monday’s
committee meeting will go to the Committee of the Whole meeting, 4 p.m.
Wednesday, then could be forwarded
to the 4 p.m. Thursday Board of Commissioners meeting for adoption, though
there could be delays. All meetings are
in the Commissioners’ Chamber of the
Surbeck Building, 201 N. Shiawassee
(M-71), downtown Corunna and are
open to the public.
Commissioner John Plowman of Perry
is chairman of the county’s Finance and
County Administration Committee.
Commissioner John Horvath of Owosso
is chairman of the county’s Committee of
the Whole. Commissioner Jeff Bartz of
Bennington Township is the board chairman. Each won re-election Nov. 4 for new
two-year terms which begin Jan. 1.

During his time at Durand, Lloyd was heavily involved
in athletics, coaching football, wrestling, basketball and
track, in addition to being the school’s Athletic Director,
1976 through 1981. Lamphere has also been the district’s
drivers’ education instructor for 52 years, and he still enjoys giving road test examinations for the district.
In addition to his teaching resume, Lloyd has been a
track and basketball official for 37 years with the Genesee County Coaches and Officials Association. He was
inducted into the Michigan High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1991, and he was named the Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ “Man of the Year” in 1973.
He is also a private in the Sons of Union Veterans of the
Civil War, of which organization his oldest son Dean is the
Commander of the Michigan 14th Company A.
While Lloyd is very proud of his honor as 2014 Sage
of the Year, he “did not expect the honor, and never tried
to get the award.” He says that his family is what is important to him, and “watching his son (Larry) play professional baseball with the Houston Astros” is what he is
most proud of. Lamphere has been married to his wife
Wanda for 54 years, and they have three sons together.
Their oldest, Dean, is a system analyst for Borg Warner
in Chicago in addition to serving in the SUVCW with his
father. Their middle son Larry, after his prosperous career
as a professional baseball player, has been an athletic director for Lapeer, Ortonville Brandon and Clio, where he
won the 2014 “AD of the Year” award. Their youngest,
Mark, has a private investigation company out of Owosso
named Shark Investigative Services.

His family keeps him busy these days, but Lloyd enjoys
restoring 2-cylinder John Deere tractors in his spare time,
and he will probably be Durand’s drivers’ education instructor until he can no longer do the job. The Durand
School District and the community as a whole are lucky
to have had this man’s service over the last half decade.
His old-school, hard-working philosophy is something
every youngster could learn from.

Jeremy Root of Byron was unopposed in the Nov. 4 election, having defeated Commissioner Robert McLaren
of Shiawassee Township in the Aug. 5 primary. He had
2,271 votes.

write-in campaign.
All of the terms begin Jan. 1, 2015.
Sheriff’s Patrols
by Contract?
With Tuesday’s voter rejection of the Sheriff’s Services
Proposal, one way townships could be asked to pay toward
services is by contract with the Sheriff’s Office, the way
some other area counties do. Townships could also consider talking with cities about possible contracts for services.
Currently, townships earmark money, sometimes approaching more than $100,000 a year, for road projects done
jointly with the Shiawassee County Road Commission.
Townships held their annual post-election dinner Friday
night at GiGi’s of Corunna, their first time gathering since
voters turned down money for Sheriff’s services.

Lostracco, who had been a highly-popular prosecutor
during the second half of the 1970s had gone into private
practice at Durand in the early 1980s before running for
Circuit Judge 30 years ago.
State Sen. John Moolenaar of Midland, a Republican, defeated Democrat Dr. Jeff Holmes of Alma to win the twoyear term succeeding longtime Congressman Dave Camp,
who said in the spring he would not run for a new term.
State Sen. Rick Jones of Grand Ledge, a Republican, beat
Dawn Levy of Elsie for the four-year term.
State Rep. Ben Glardon of Owosso Township, a Republican, turned back Annie Dignan Braidwood of Bennington Township. This will be Glardon’s final term due to
voter-adopted term limits.
The county’s proposal for two-tenths of a mill for Veterans Services for five years easily won approval, 13,782 to
9,734, to provide money for personnel.
Owosso’s proposed street millage for two years at just
over 1.9 mills was defeated Tuesday, 2,304 to 1,784. That
was put on the ballot after voters in November 2013 rejected City Manager Don Crawford’s proposal for $10
million in bonds for streets and trails – to be repaid over
30 years, which critics said would mean paying for streets
long after they had worn out.
Chesaning’s latest effort to get street work money, a $4
million bond issue in three increments, $1.5 million for
2015; $1.25 million for 2018; and $1.25 million for 2021,
won approval Tuesday, 570 to 257, with the estimated
property tax increase for 2015 just over 6 mills.
At the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners, Republican Hartmann Aue defeated Owosso Charter Township Supervisor Danny Miller for a two-term, 2,304 to
1,589. Aue had defeated Commissioner Mary Nordbeck
in the Aug. 5 primary. She was appointed in early spring
to replace the resigned Dan Stewart.
County Commissioner John Horvath, a Democrat, turned
back John C.M. “Jack” Davis, a former Owosso mayor,
1,283 to 1,122.
County Commissioner Gary Holzhausen, a Republican,
won over Tom Elliott of Corunna, in a repeat of their 2012
contest, 1,950 to 1,558.

Tuttle’s Thoughts
What is inquiry-based learning? How does
inquiry-based learning relate to the Veterans of
the United States? I would like to share a personal story that depicts inquiry-based learning
at its best.
Recently, I asked each of my parents to write
an autobiography. My hope was that they
would share their cherished histories with my
siblings, our children, and me. I never thought
my father, whom I would describe lovingly as a “grumpy old man,” would
comply with my request, so imagine my surprise when I received his
15 page autobiography in the mail. He didn’t send it via email because
he doesn’t know how to send an attachment and it doesn’t matter how
many times my siblings and I try to teach him, he is just not interested
in learning. However, it was typed on a computer, so I was impressed.
Anyway, I began reading his autobiography and I was engrossed in what
he had written. I thought I knew everything about my father via the stories
he had shared throughout my life, but come to find out, I knew very little
about his existence prior to my birth. The stories were fascinating, some
made me laugh, some made me cry and some inspired me.
One night, instead of reading a book to my two children, I decided to
read grandpa’s autobiography. I became a bit frustrated because my kids
continued to interrupt with questions—questions that I often did not know
the answers to because it wasn’t my life. After being interrupted repeatedly with questions, I asked my children to write down each question as
they came to mind. I told the kids that we would send a cumulative list
of questions to grandpa so that he could share the answers with them.
This worked well until we started reading the excerpts in my dad’s autobiography about his military service. He describes himself as a “tweener”
because his years of service in the Air Force fell between WWII/Korean
Wars and the Vietnam War. At one point, my son hollered, “Stop, I can’t
write fast enough to get all my questions down on paper!” So, I paused
to give him time, but after about the fifth question just on that topic, we
decided to pick up the phone and call grandpa so they could just talk.
Wow, I was intrigued with the conversation even though I could only
hear my son’s side. My son would ask one question and the answer my
dad provided generated many more inquiries from my son. The conversation lasted over an hour which was significant because one thing everyone who knows my dad understands is that he is a man of few words.
So, for him to converse for an hour was incredible. He spoke to his passion about not only the subject matter, but about educating the younger
generations. The conversation ended with my son telling his grandpa
that he would talk with him later about his time in the Air Force and his
childhood memories of WWII because he was interested in getting back
to, as Paul Harvey would say, “. . .the rest of the story.”
In Owosso, we talk repeatedly about inquiry-based learning and education. Inquiry-based learning starts by posing questions, problems or
scenarios rather than a presentation of facts. Students research and
identify questions to develop their knowledge. Specific learning processes that students engage in during inquiry-learning include:
• Creating questions of their own
• Obtaining supporting evidence to answer the question(s)
• Explaining the evidence collected
• Connecting the explanation to the knowledge obtained from the
investigative process
• Creating an argument and justification for the explanation
Inquiry learning involves developing questions, making observations,
conducting research to find out what information is already recorded,
developing methods for experiments, developing instruments for data
collection, collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data, outlining possible explanations and creating predictions for future study. (http://
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inquiry-based_learning)
The scenario that played out in my household was a perfect example
of sparking a child’s interest, allowing the child to ask the questions, and
collectively seeking the answers. My son learned more in that one hour
conversation with his grandfather who, at that moment was not only a
grandpa, but was speaking from the perspective of a United States Veteran. This was inquiry-based learning at its best.
What can you learn from a veteran of the United States of America?
Have you ever taken a moment to ask a veteran questions about their
experiences (some may not wish to talk about it which says a whole lot by
saying nothing at all)? This is how inquiry-based learning occurs and this
is what we strive for at Owosso Public Schools. I encourage you to join
the district as we honor our Veterans on November 11th. The schedule of
Veterans Day Celebrations is referenced in this week’s “Trojan Times.”
Proud to be an American,
Dr. Andrea Tuttle

Central Elementary is in the midst of their annual Young Entrepreneur
(YE) fundraiser/lesson. Instead of using outside organizations for fundraising, Central students and staff create, market, and sell their own
products through the YE Program. YE is a learning tool for students as
they, at an early age, begin embracing the fundamentals of entrepreneurialism. Students apply the basic principles of economics and accounting such as supply and demand, quality control, net gain, labor
costs, and so on. Customer service is also a key component to this program. Central Principal Mrs. Graham reports that this year all profits stay
in the classroom to help fund field trips and other classroom activities.

Fourth Graders Set Sail
Through the Inland Seas Education Association, all
Owosso Public Schools’ fourth graders became scientists
on a floating classroom when they set sail on the field trip
of a lifetime! Students and teachers boarded buses this
fall to travel to beautiful Sutton’s Bay, Michigan, where
they set out for an adventure on a traditionally-rigged tall
ship schooner.
The trip correlated with the fourth grade science unit on
invasive species. Students were excited to apply classroom concepts on Lake Michigan as they gathered water
samples to test the water’s acidity. They were also involved
in collecting plankton samples and investigating what they
found under microscopes. Students worked with the ship’s
crew to pull nets up from the bottom of the lake to see what
species could be discovered. Teachers report that seeing
students work like actual scientists to collect and analyze
samples taken, was thrilling and empowering for all.
Additionally, students learned boating terminology and
they helped with many important tasks on the ship such as,
raising the three sails onboard the boat, steering the boat,
and pulling the anchor.
“This was a trip that every fourth grader will remember
for a lifetime!” exclaimed Bryant fourth grade Teacher Mrs.
Karla Tuma.

Ecology, history, geography, geology, biology, chemistry, and meteorology
concepts were covered on the ship. Emerson students Brandon Philipps, Kaleb Entwistle, and Deegan Hickmott listen closely to a crew member while on
the ship.

Festival of Lights Parade Entries Sought
It is time to start thinking about your family’s or your organization’s entry in the
2014 Corunna Festival of Lights Parade 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5. Entry forms may be picked
up at Corunna City Hall, 402 N. Shiawassee, Corunna. Entry forms are also available by e-mailing [email protected] and requesting one. Persons wishing
additional information may call Shauna Bayless or Merilee Lawson at Corunna City
Hall, (989) 743-3650.
This year’s theme is “Christmas in Corunna.” Parade units will be judged in one of six
categories: Best Use of Theme, Best Use of Lights, Best Marching/Walking Unit, Best
Rookie Entry (first time in parade), Best Decorated Vehicle (truck, car or tractor) and
The Spirit of Christmas (best representing what Christmas is all about). Winners in each
category will receive a trophy before the start of the parade and a $50 check from the
Corunna Downtown Development Authority, awarded after the beginning of the year.
Festival of Trees Sponsors Sought
The Corunna Parks and Recreation Commission is looking for 2014 Festival of Trees
tree sponsors. As a sponsor, you are assigned an elementary classroom or an organization from the Owosso/Corunna/Durand/Vernon area. Students and other individuals
make ornaments and decorate a Christmas tree that will be on display in the Corunna
Community Center (historically known as The Casino in McCurdy Park). Each tree will
have a star at the top displaying the business, group, organization or family that sponsored the tree and the classroom that decorated the tree.
Trees will be displayed Dec. 5, 6, 7, plus Dec. 13 and 14 during the citywide Festival
of Trees.
Sponsorship is $100 per tree with $50 going to the class or organization to purchase
supplies to make decorations. Applications may be picked up at Corunna City Hall or by
calling (989) 743-3650 to have one sent to you. Persons wishing more information may
contact Carol Spaniola, (989) 743-3293.
Help Decorate ‘Giving Tree’
Catholic Charities asks the Shiawassee County community to share the warmth of the
coming Christmas Season by donating hats, gloves, mittens and scarves. Items received
will be used to decorate the “Giving Tree” in the lobby of Catholic Charities in downtown Owosso. Beginning this month and throughout the cold winter months, these items
will then be gifted to Shiawassee County residents in need.
“There is such great need in our community,” says Vicky Schultz, president and CEO of
Catholic Charities and longtime Corunna resident. “You have no idea what something as
simple as a pair of gloves can mean to someone who has very little. Homemade, gently
used, and new items are all welcome. We hope to gather enough to last the entire winter.”
Donations are accepted at Catholic Charities’ Owosso office 120 W. Exchange, 8:30
a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Fridays. Blankets, towels
and sheets, as well as toiletries and canned food, are also welcome for Catholic Charities’ Community Closet and Food Pantry.
Persons in need of items from the Community Closet and Food Pantry can visit Catholic Charities noon to 3 p.m. Tuesdays or 9 a.m. to noon Fridays. “Please bring identification for each member of the household and proof of income,” it was emphasized.
Catholic Charities of Shiawassee and Genesee counties has been serving those in need
since 1941. This diverse social services agency offers an array of programs including
counseling, substance abuse treatment, prevention and education, foster care and adoption as well as a Community Closet and Food Pantry, serving all people regardless of
faith. For more about services, persons may call (989) 723-8239.

Letters to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
It’s disappointing to know that I will not be going to the Capitol in January to represent
the people of the 85th House District.
The tireless efforts of my supporters, campaign staff and volunteers through the district
have shown that hard-working families, seniors and students need better representation.
Even though I will not be representing House District 85, I will continue to listen to the
concerns of the people in our communities and make sure Rep. Glardon is staying true
to his constituents and not following party lines.
The 85th House District is full of strong people, and we need strong representation
to match.
Annie Braidwood, Bennington Township
Editor, The Independent:
I went to bed election night believing that I would wake up the winner of the 85th
District State Representative race and be able to go shopping for some new clothes and
shoes. Somehow during the dark of night, Ben slipped by me. I wanted to hold off conceding with hope of a recount, but I need to get over it and move on.
Seriously, I learned a lot that will help me help others to run for local offices and get
government working within the budget that the taxpayers voted for them use.
The single party ticket makes it impossible to breakthrough the Republican/Democratic
monopoly of our election system. As I watched the results come in, I noticed that the Libertarian Party only drew 1 or 2 percent of the votes in each election. Since I got almost
5 percent of the vote, I should feel okay.
I never had my full commitment to running because I knew I had no hope to win. I even
called twice to withdraw, but I was put on hold and I hung up before they got back to me.
Half of my relatives in this county didn’t even know that I was running, just like most of
my readers didn’t know.
I thank Ben, his wife and daughter for their determination to fight on through negative
ads that were trying to make one of the finest families of our county look bad.

I wish to express my hearty thanks to all the great people of District 3 who supported
me by their contributions and most importantly with their votes.
I know that all the people who ran for office care deeply about Shiawassee County.
Also, I wish my opponent, Mr. Holzhausen, the best in representing District 3.
There are many difficult issues facing us in the next two years such as permanent 4-H
funding, expansion of M-52 and M -21 to connect to the I-69 corridor, and most importantly new and unique ways to increase Shiawassee County’s income. The election is
over, let’s support our hard working commissioners.

Letter to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
I am writing on behalf of The People’s Choice Committee. First of all we would like to say thank you to all who
took the time to vote in the Nov. 4 election! We would like
to congratulate all of the commissioners who ran or won
in their individual districts. It takes great courage to put
your name on the ballot, and to personally commit to a lot
of work and sacrifice. What makes our democratic form of
government so extraordinary is the simple fact that people
are willing to run, and voters are able to send a message to
their leaders, regardless of political party.
Our PAC sees a new direction and leadership for our
county – we have all become a part of history in Shiawassee County. We have full confidence that, just as the
community has come together for positive outcomes; we
are now hopeful that seven persons have a wonderful opportunity to come together too!
Every incumbent and every newcomer to the new board
has something special to contribute. All we ask is that you
use your individual talents and skills for the betterment of
our citizens. We thank all of our supporters for everything
they did to help us accomplish our goals. We send out our
best wishes to everyone on the new Board of Commissioners. Our hopes and prayers are for a genuine and long-lasting cooperative spirit to benefit all of us!

Central Pharmacy Perry
If you are looking for a local hometown pharmacy, then
Central Pharmacy–Perry is the place to go. As the former
Snyder’s Pharmacy (inside Snyder’s IGA), they offer free
local delivery and strive to give fast and friendly personalized service and short wait times, all the while still helping with their clients’ healthcare needs. They also have a
new computer program called iMedicare, that helps seniors choose which Medicare program that will work the
best for them.
New owners, Heather Russell and Dave Larner, both
pharmacists, are both Perry High School graduates whose
parents still live in Perry, and are focused on making their
new business a pharmacy with the hometown feel. Larner
had worked for the previous owners of Snyder’s Pharmacy at the Perry location and also at the Owosso location,
Owosso Community Pharmacy, for about 10 years. When
the opportunity arose to buy the Perry location, these two
longtime friends decided to buy it.
Russell formerly worked at Rite Aid in Perry for 10 years,
then an independent pharmacy in Okemos for six years.
Larner formerly worked at Rann’s Pharmacy (the first independent pharmacy in Perry) and Owosso Community
Pharmacy. Both Russell and Larner worked at pharmacies
while in high school and continued in the profession.
Larner is also a part owner of Central Pharmacy–Owosso
with a silent partner. He splits his time as a pharmacist
between the two locations. Both Owosso and Perry locations employ local technicians. Another location is Central
Pharmacy–Laingsburg, which recently opened. Although
it is under different ownership, the three locations support
one another.
Russell, along with her husband and four children live in
East Lansing, while Larner, along with his wife and five

From Penny Corbin, SCCHMA
The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF International)
has awarded Shiawassee County Community Mental Health Authority (SCCMH) with
a three-year accreditation, the highest accreditation level. CARF Accreditation is a national gold standard for behavioral health service excellence.
In its letter to SCCMHA Chief Executive Officer Joe Sedlock, CARF representatives
stated: “This achievement is an indication of your organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served. Services, personnel and
documentation clearly indicate an established pattern of practice excellence.”
Additionally, the CARF cited SCCMHA’s “Main Street USA” program as in exemplary conformance to service excellence standards. Main Street is a skills development
program that includes a consumer-operated cafeteria, a lending library, a boutique and
other employment skills–related programming. Main Street primarily provides these
comprehensive and effective services to individuals with developmental disabilities.
Our goal is to promote self-sufficiency, self-determination; and productive, purposeful
lives. The report further specifies Main Street’s unique and innovative environment
for the provision of these services and allows for a therapeutic setting that promotes
an unusually high level of rapport between all staff and consumers engaged in the
“neighborhoodlike” center.
SCCMHA is committed to deliver the highest quality behavioral healthcare to everyone
in need. For more information about SCCMHA, persons may visit www.shiacmh.org or

‘Friends’ Bug ID Night
All are invited to explore life in the river by learning to identify aquatic bugs at the
Friends of the Shiawassee River’s Bug ID Night, 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 13, at the
Baker College of Owosso Welcome Center, 1309 S. M-52, Owosso.
Samples of benthic macro invertebrates (aquatic bugs) were collected this fall by the
Stream Team—a volunteer group organized by the Friends of the Shiawassee River
(FOSR). By tallying and identifying these bugs, participants will be helping the community to learn more about the water quality of the Shiawassee River. The evening will
begin with a short training session for new volunteers. Volunteers 12 years old and up
are welcome.
Bugs will be identified by volunteers with the help of an aquatic biologist from the
Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). These aquatic bugs were collected from river sites along the South State Drain off Chipman Road as well as DeVries
Nature Conservancy, McCurdy Park, the Owosso Middle School and below the Shiatown Dam. Depending on the number and diversity of bugs identified, each site will be
assigned a water quality rating that will be reported to the MDEQ.
Macroinvertebrate identification is fun, easy and a great way to learn more about the
river! Anyone can learn how to identify aquatic bugs. Having this knowledge will truly
make the Shiawassee River come to life for volunteers. To pre-register, persons are asked
to contact the Friends of the Shiawassee River by emailing Devin Gill at [email protected] or calling the FOSR office, (989) 723-9062.

Letter to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
In the wake of the Nov. 4 General Election, I feel compelled to address many issues.
It is an absolute travesty that for the duration of the election campaign period the “loudest” voices heard, or at
least in appearance by the outcome this past Tuesday, was
that of the most profoundly oblivious group of individuals
within the County.
With a robust ignorance many comments were made
against the Sheriff’s Office millage. The most commonly
heard was in regard to DDA or Downtown Development
Authority language on the ballot. This language appears
on ALL county election ballots where a tax or millage is
going to be voted on. This same language also appeared
on the millage that was passed for the Veterans Services
during the General Election and the Senior Citizens during the Aug. 4 Primary.
For those who questioned “why” this appears on a ballot
they could have easily found answers by simply educating
themselves about election laws and ballot language to get
the facts straight before placing inaccurate comments into
circulation that could change the course of lives for many.
In the answer you would have learned that it must appear
BY LAW and the Board of Commissioners cannot remove
the language or alter it in any manner.
Millage proposal language in Shiawassee County is prepared by an outside labor attorney to avoid any violations
of the law as they apply to such language. The Commissioners merely vote on whether or not to place it on the
ballots for residents to vote on.
Furthermore, the term “scare tactic” has been thrown
around like the punch line of a favorite joke. I can attest
that this is neither a joke nor a “scare tactic.” The Board
of Commissioners will be reviewing the proposed 2015
budget during the week of Nov. 10 that has been prepared
by/presented to the Chairman of the Finance Committee
for the Board of Commissioners for review and adoption.
Of the cuts to the budget, the biggest of them will be to
the Sheriff’s Office to the tune of $1.5 million. Moving

Veterans Day: My Dad!
WWII Charles Grant Peckham,
Staff Sergeant, US Army; Infantry;
Advanced Drill in Weapons and Survival
By Charlotte Fromholz, Owosso Township
My Dad was a Drill Sergeant and a Specialist in Survival. But not the stereotype, shouting obscenities and
trashing some poor recruit. His approach was the exact
opposite. He was a gentle and soft -spoken man, and he
was extremely successful.
I think it is great to hear about a drill sergeant who managed to communicate to his men that he truly cared about
whether they came home or not. They got it, and in return,
he was given the greatest degree of cooperation and his
platoons got top honors – and were always asked to march
in parades, which provoked a lot of teasing.
Finally, and I think this is the kicker, when discharged
from the Army, some of his recruits looked him up. One
of his Eagle Scouts came to see him even before he went
home to family!
Prior to serving in the Army, Dad had been a Boy Scout
Master and had many successes with so-called bad boys.
He taught survival skills to his Scouts and my brother
Chuck remembers a crazy game in which the Scouts
would blindfold Dad, turn him around and around and
then ask him to point “North” or “East.” He could do it
every time but he still stressed, “Always trust your compass.” His survival skills in the woods were remarkable.
His troops were aware that they mattered and that being
successful in his platoon went a long way in staying alive
on the battlefield. How he conveyed this to them? I know
he tracked the causalities. He told of an incident in which
he was embarrassed because he showed up for drill still
blowing his nose (another one wasn’t coming home) and
OWOSSO
MEDICAL GROUP
he was not good at hiding grief. And he was not a talker.
In fact, he would stutter at times. In school, the teachers
would have him sing or recite poetry – sort of like Mel
Tills doesn’t stutter when he sings. I remember him singing in Church and putting his Scouts through their paces
in that sing-song cadence. He didn’t miss a beat.
He was skillful in weapons training and was a sharpshooter, expert marksman, etc. He told of one guy who
was having trouble keeping his rear end down when crawling on the ground. He said something to the effect that he
talked to him, told him that he made an easy target, and
wasn’t coming home if he couldn’t keep his butt out of the
air (I don’t remember exactly) and that was the end of the
problem, but there had to be more! As a teacher, I know
you just don’t “tell” someone who isn’t getting it. Knowing my Dad, he would have worked with him to identify
the problem and correct it, just like he used to with us
kids when he took us fishing. And he would never have
humiliated him by bawling him out in front of the others.
(Note, per my brothers: they think that Dad would have
corrected using the butt of his rifle on the offending buttocks. using more colorful language. They are probably
right since they spent more “man” time with my Dad.)
A real Drill Sergeant drills survival until it becomes
second nature. It wasn’t just marching and shooting guns,
it was “What do you do when you are separated from your
unit?” “ How do you camouflage yourself?” “How do you
safely maneuver back to your group?” “How do you move
through woods, through water, through bogs and not be
seen/heard?”
When a group finished training and they were about to
be sent overseas, Dad would submit a request to accompany them. He was turned down every time. Finally he was
told that he was much too valuable where he was and that
he was doing more there to save lives than he could ever
do on a battlefield. He did maintain contact with some of
the soldiers he had trained,
receiving letters from them
telling him of some of the
things they had encountered
and suggestions on how to
improve on training. Now,
these letters were heavily
The Sunday Independent • Sunday, November 9, 2014
(Courtesy Photo)
censored, but the gist of some of it did make it through
and Dad was grateful to hear from them and to be aware
of additional things to train for.
He got a lot of teasing because of his “soft job.” I remember my uncles joking and saying stuff like the only
thing he did in the Army was march in parades – and he
did march in a lot of parades! My mom said that his drill
teams were absolute perfection. They marched, shouldered their rifles and completed drills with just amazing precision. And so, when the powers that be needed
a group to march in a parade, or welcome VIPs, Dad’s
group was chosen over and over. They were just the best.

Celebrating Hospice Care
Property Available
November is National
Hospice Month
From Barb Holland, Memorial Healthcare
November is National Hospice Month. Considered to be
the model of quality, compassionate care at the end of life,
Memorial Hospice care utilizes a team-oriented approach
of expert medical care and pain management, along with
emotional and spiritual support tailored to the patient’s
wishes. Healthcare professionals who specialize in hospice and palliative care work closely with our staff, chaplain, trained and screened volunteers and family caregivers to address all the symptoms, complications and needs
of the patients we are privileged to care for.
Memorial Hospice is committed to providing the very
best end-of-life care and to enhancing the quality of life for
terminally ill people and their loved ones. Generally, this
care is provided in the patient’s home. Memorial Healthcare Hospice also has two rooms specifically designed for
providing hospice care at its main hospital campus.
Key components to Hospice are treating the person, not

As part of its efforts to create a sustainable and successful downtown, the city of Laingsburg is now accepting
proposals to acquire or lease property it owns at 104 W.
Grand River. The site includes an existing 2,412-squarefoot building (which has previously been used for storage
purposes), which can be redeveloped into something new
with commercial purpose (current zoning is C-1 (Central
Business District). Infrastructure is already in place (including sanitary sewer, storm water, and road access). The
city does not have a public water system.
“The property is located in the thriving downtown district in the city. This is a great opportunity for the development of a business in the heart of Laingsburg where there
are currently many successful businesses in the immediate surroundings of this location,” said Treasurer Paula
Willoughby.
Laingsburg is working with the Shiawassee Economic
Development Partnership (SEDP) to host a forum at 9 a.m.
Tuesday, Nov. 18, at the site for those who would like to
learn more about the project.
“We encourage all interested parties to attend the forum,
including local entrepreneurs who may be interested in
starting or growing a business here, or those in the development community who focus on downtown revitalization
efforts,” said SEDP President/CEO Justin Horvath. Those
that plan to attend are asked to contact the city of Laingsburg, (517) 651-5374, or the SEDP, (989) 725-9241.

Letter to the Editor
Continued from Page 10
into 2015 how the Sheriff chooses to administer these cuts are for him and his administrative team to decide.
At first look when you chop at it with a hatchet the Road Patrol was alluded to publicly
as the point of impact for this budget reduction. The Deputies who patrol the streets of
Shiawassee County have names like John, Jim, Tom and many more; their kids go to
school and play sports or attend other activities with many of your children all throughout the County.
Taking a massive swing to this component of the Sheriff’s Office puts most, if not all
Page 15
Deputies out of a job. These men and women who give up time with their families over
the holidays and weekends so that you can safely spend time with yours deserve more
than what they received by this County, in the message sent on Election Day. They
deserve to have the Sheriff’s Office budget viewed and reviewed in every attempt to
save their jobs.
Sheriff Braidwood is a leader who understands that he does not just have employees to
lead, he has people, people with families, which is a huge testament to his character. He
will have to evaluate all aspects of the financial impact that his Office is about to endure.
No matter what his decision is one thing remains the same, it will change the operational face and tempo of this illustrious agency. If he is successful in salvaging some
jobs so that less have to be placed out of work, that deserves applause, but many of you
will see it as affirmation that this was only a “scare tactic” and those who develop that
mindset, you should be ashamed of the thought.
The loudest voices heard throughout Shiawassee County
should be from those with sound knowledge of the issues
and the facts related to those issues, not from individuals
with presumptions and their own detrimental agendas.
This correspondence is not directed towards any one
individual or any specific organized group of committees, it is merely a general observation to elicit points of
consideration.
TJ Clark, Shiawassee County Administrator

Letter to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
A recently published report put out by
the Mid-Michigan 2-1-1 Call Center shows
that unmet electric service payment assistance needs in the third quarter of 2014
have risen 92 percent over the same three
months in 2013. The report states that this
is, “…due to a lack of immediate resources
with active funding…” The report is published each quarter to inform human service, and other professionals working with
families, of the top referrals and unmet
needs throughout the county.
“Real people are helped every day with
2-1-1 service that is provided, toll-free,
day or night, to every person in the county,” said Retta Parsons, CEO, Shiawassee
United Way. “I am reminded of the needs
of a senior citizen that illustrate just how
helpful this service can be.”
Bob, an elderly man, had utility expenses
that had become too much for his budget
given the exceptionally cold weather. He was
afraid that he was going to get shut-off. Not
knowing where to turn, he phoned 2-1-1.
The 2-1-1 Call Specialist listened and
learned quickly that this was the first time
Bob had needed assistance. Knowing this
situation could become urgent quickly,
the Specialist contacted a local agency
and advocated on Bob’s behalf, explaining his situation. After hearing the issues
Bob was facing, the agency determined
the level of assistance for which Bob was
eligible and also had a temporary hold
placed on his account to avoid shut-off in
the immediate future.
During last winter’s ice storm, the public
was instructed by the county’s Homeland
Security Team to phone 2-1-1 for the location of warming shelters and other basic
needs. Later, during a heavy snow state of
emergency, the public again was pointed to
the service for basic needs and other questions so that 9-1-1 lines could be used for
