City election
Voters stuck with incumbents in last
week's Clarkston City Council election, with
one new face replacing Council member Tom
Hunter, who did not run for reelection.
Voted to two-year terms on the council
were newcomer Jason M. Kneisc, with 171
votes, 29.95 percent of the total; and
incumbents Eric Haven, 156 votes, 27.32
percent, and David Marsh, 139 votes, 24.34
percent. Challenger Michael E. Cascone
received 104 votes, 18.21 percent.
Incumbent Alfred A. Avery was elected
to a partial term on the council, ending Nov.
14, 2016, with 156 votes, 69.33 percent of the
total. Challenger Peggy Roth received 68
votes, 30.22 percent.
In Clarkston, 232 ballots were cast out of
849 registered voters, a 27.33 percent turnout.
Avery was appointed in June to replace
Council member Richard Bisio, who resigned
his seat.
"I am excited to have been elected by the
residents of Clarkston," Avery said. "I want
the residents to know I will work hard to
improve communication with the city and the
residents. Im looking forward to
the implementation of the new website in
December and holding our open house in
February to provide residents with the
opportunity to learn what the website can
do."
The open house is scheduled for Feb. 2,
probably in Fire Station One. The council
member said he hasn't decided whether he
will run for a full term next November.
"Im just trying to concentrate on serving
the residents for the next year," he said.
Phil Custodio

Briefly
Order against Bisio
Judge Leo Bowman, Circuit Court
of Oakland County, ruled former
Clarkston City Councilman Richard
Bisio violated the Michigan Rules of
Professional Conduct with postings on
Facebook about his lawsuit against the
city.
The court agreed with city attorneys request at the Nov. 4 hearing to
restrict Bisio from making public statements about the suit, which charges
the city with violating the Open Meetings Act and Freedom of Information
Act. The court ruled against the city's
request for a $1,000 fine and fees
against Bisio, holding it in abeyance.
The court also declined to order
Bisio to remove the false statements
about the city from his Facebook
page, which was requested by city
attorney Paul T. ONeill.

Other options for urgent care after center closes


BYANDREAM. BEAUDOIN
Clarkston News Staff Writer
An urgent care center will close in the
Clarkston Medical Building after the pending sale of the medical facility to McLaren
Health Care Corporation.
"We are in discussions with them
(McLaren) to convert our urgent care center into an emergency room," Dr. Tim O'Neill
said. "We hope to have a final decision by
the end of the month. It could provide full
emergency services on our site in the partnership."
The Clarkston Medical Group, which was
started by Dr. James O'Neill, Tim's father, expanded from a Main Street practice to its current location at Sashabaw Road and Bow
Pointe Drive.
The medical center will be replaced by an
emergency room, part of "Plan B" for
McLaren after the hospital group failed to
convince state lawmakers the area needed a
full-scale hospital.
Urgent care centers treat common illnesses like the flu or cold and non-life threat-

ening injuries while emergency rooms treat


life threatening illness and emergencies.
According to Blue Cross Blue Shield
Michigan, urgent care centers serve patients
when their normal doctors office is closed,
but their injury or illness does not require a
trip to the ER.
ER and urgent care center billing is different, too. Urgent care costs less than trips to
the ER and health plans often require a higher
deductible for ER visits.
ERs are open 24-hours a day seven days
a week. Clarkston Urgent Care is also open
24 hour a day seven days a week, but many
other urgent care centers are not.
When Clarkston Urgent Care closes, options for care include Independence Urgent
Care, 7992 N. Main Street, open MondayFriday, 8 a.m. until 10 p.m., and weekends
from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Clarkston Health Center, operated by
McLaren Oakland near Dixie and White
Roads, open 24 hours a day seven days a
week. The facility is a full service emergency
room.

Josh Newblatt, a life long Clarkston resident and emergency physician, said he plans
to open a center on Sashabaw Road.
"We hope to fill the gap left behind by the
McLaren plan," Newblatt said
Hospitals are designated by levels, based
on degree of care, with Level 1 hospitals able
to treat the worst injuries.
The closest hospital to Clarkston with a
full emergency room is McLaren Oakland in
Pontiac, a Level 2 hospital.
The only Level 1 trauma hospital in Oakland County is the William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak.
Emergency rooms close to Clarkston include North Oakland Medical Center, Pontiac,
8.7 miles away, non-profit; POH, Level 2,
Pontiac, non-profit, 9.34 miles; Huron Valley
Sinai, Commerce, non-profit, 153 beds, 10.71
miles; St. Joseph Mercy Oakland, Level 2,
non-profit, 11.07 miles, 403 beds; Genesys
Regional, Grand Blanc, non-profit, 410 beds,
14 miles; and William Beaumont, Troy, Level
1, certified trauma center, non-profit, 296
beds.

New planters in Davisburg


The Springfield Garden Club, a Branch of
Womans National Farm & Garden
Association, installed custom stone planters
in Davisburg.
The project started in 2012 by past
President Nancy Bontumasi. She researched
the feasibility of the project and saw it to
fruition.
The Springfield Garden Club funded three
planters, at a cost of $1,000 each, with money
raised at their biennial Daffodil and Duds
Style Show and Silent Auction.
Two additional planters were purchased
by Atty. Dennis Strelchuk and his wife
MaryAnne, a member of the club. Creative
Stone of Davisburg, Mich., designed and
placed the planters, and donated one planter.
Five of the planters are located on Broadway,
in Davisburg.
The sixth planter graces the entrance to
the Springfield Township Library. Flowers
and seasonal decorations will be supplied
by the Club as part of their commitment to
beautifying downtown Davisburg.
The club received an award from Keep
Michigan Beautiful for their efforts to
improve the area. Meetings are held the first
Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m., with
the exception of July, at the Springfield
Township Hall on Davisburg Road.
Anyone interested in learning more about

Student actors deliver message of faith in new movie


BY WENDI REARDON
Clarkston News Staff Writer
Clarkston High School students Mitchell
Biggs, Alyssa Harbaugh, Luke Hodgson and
Ryan Weaver spent the last year taking their
acting skills from the stage to film in The
Messenger's Box, which is set to be released
on DVD this holiday season.
The Messenger's Box is about Jake
Casper, played by Hodgson, an ordinary
high school student who finds a powerful,
extraordinary box in the attic of his
grandfather's antique store. Jake must learn
the purpose of the box and the power within
in it in the faith-based movie.
"It is about how God's miracles can save
people," said Harbaugh.
"It's also about modern day miracles,
too," Biggs added. "Most people think
miracles are a thing of the past. The author's
goal was to show God is still alive and well."
"Jake struggles with his own identity and
being bullied by the thugs led by Ritchie,"
Hodgson said about his character, Jake. "He
is also coping with his grandpa's death
because there were very close. He is hesitant
to acknowledge his loss. Jake's biggest
obstacle is to solidify himself in a world filled
with adversity."
Biggs plays Jake's best friend, David.
"He is a very fearful person," Biggs
explained. "Hes not the brightest, but he
cares about Jake and he recognizes Jake is
going through hardships he doesnt share.
Sometimes he is the voice of reason making
sure Jake doesnt do something that gets
him into a bad situation."
Harbaugh plays Anna, Jake's love
interest, who just moved to the area.
"She is really there to support Jake and
provide a Christian prospective," she said.
Weaver plays a thug who is part of the
group following the main antagonist, Richie.
"Our job is to be his friend and support
him through his cancer and also help him
believe the heck out of Jake," Weaver said.
Harbaugh and Hodgson became involved
in the film, directed by Waterford resident
Gary Bosek, when they were given audition

slips from their theater director, Jeff Tice.
"We auditioned then they wanted more
people to become a part of it and play
different characters," Harbaugh said.
Both spread the word to their friends and
Biggs and Weaver became a part of it.
"I met Gary at a diner with Luke," Biggs
smiled. "I auditioned in the Starbucks' parking
lot. He gave me some situations and I acted
them out."
Weaver explained he was originally going
to be an extra after Bosek and Chase Murphy,

have seen the production side. It was


definitely a great experience for anybody,
like myself, interested in acting and also the
process of movie making. Also, I got to do it
with these three and other amazing people
so it was a great experience."
"It was really cool," Harbaugh added.
"For me it was seeing the technical side of
production audio, lighting, all of those
various components because I really enjoy
the technical side of theatre as well as
performing on stage. It a great experience as
the first film I have been involved in."
For Biggs, it was different than being on
stage and he rarely felt nervous doing takes.
"With those lack of nerves it was easier
to get into the character. I could play David
to the best of my ability without being
concerned about messing up and everybody
noticing," he said.
Hodgson was impressed by the
dedication from everyone involved in the
project including the actors and crew
members, which were all volunteers.
"It speaks volumes about the character
of the cast and crew," he smiled. "Its
incredibly moving not only was this
completely volunteer based but it came to
completion because so many movies in
Michigan either studios dont come here or
nothing gets finished. The dedication
everybody put in was admiral. The result is
something I can say I am proud of."
All four added to check out The
Messenger's Box when it is released on DVD.
"Its very unique. It does deal with new
things in the genre and its fun for the whole
family," Biggs said.
Harbaugh added though it is a Christian
faith-based movie it has a lot of different
aspects which will interest viewers not as
faith-based.
"A major strength of The Messengers Box
is its ability to not exclude a non- Christian
based," Hodgson said. "In terms of its plot
and character base it is much more accepted
in our community and the openness of a
more Christian perspective within that
community where it is more accepting."

A column by Phil Custodio

Race to
years end

This year, the weather was the nicest


yet for the Clarkston State Bank Back
Roads Half Marathon. Blue skies and
bright sun warmed up the brisk Sunday
morning nicely.
That sort of weathers going to spoil
me, especially if it returns to normal for
the season next year, with the usual gray
skies and bitterly cold winds.
Perhaps thats how a
November road race
should be run. I was a bit
off last years pace,
when it was much
colder.
That, and I didnt
train as much with the
Wolfpack running club,
running up and down the
backroads off Holcomb Road.
Still, I finished in 1:52;31, an 8:36
minute mile pace. It wasnt long ago such
a thing would not have been possible for
me. So next year Ill get myself up earlier, Saturdays, to run with the pack.
I spent more time in Independence
Oaks County Park for my training this
year, so I was more familiar with the
course. I can almost run it without signs
and volunteers waving me in the right direction.
It's a challenging course. Those
lakeside trail hills are intense, especially
the ones in the last couple miles. If I were
hiking, Id pick up a stick to walk up those
hills.
With the race over, that means its time
for Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. The year goes by
really fast when it gets to the holiday season.
Before then, though, American Legion
Post 63, 8047 Ortonville Road, is hosting a Veterans Day Lunch, sponsored by
Clarkston Masons Cedar Lodge #60, 11
a.m., Friday, Nov. 13.
Lunch is free for vets, and $6 for family members.
Call for reservations at 248-625-8231.
Clarkston Junior High School students
usually serve the lunch, and theyll also
continue their tradition of honoring a veteran with a stone tile in their Jenna Beno
memorial courtyard at the school.
They do a good job bringing veterans
to the school to talk to students. For many
years theyd invite World War II veterans in to talk about their experiences in
Europe, Pacific, and on the homefront.
That wont be possible much longer,
unfortunately.

Clarkston Invitational a success

Dear Editor,
I would like to once again to thank the
Clarkston High School Marching Band, who
this year performed a beautiful show titled
Romeo and Juliet at the annual Michigan
Competing Band Competition at Clarkston
High School, Saturday, October 24th.
This competition is hosted by the
Clarkston School Instrumental Music Association (CSIMA), and we are honored to have
hosted this competition for the last 38 years!
A lot of people dont realize this is probably
the biggest event that happens in Clarkston
every year! Thousands of students participate
and thousands more attend.
A special thank you goes to our very dedicated and talented directors; Mike Lewis,
Shelley Roland, Justin Harris, and newcomer
Ross Taylor. They put in many hours in preparation for a marching show, as well as work
tirelessly teaching and encouraging our students. There is also a number of support staff,
too many to mention, who also work with the
band to successfully execute a wonderful
show and I thank you for your hard work all
season.
Of course the most heartfelt thank you
goes to the band! The hours of hard work
these students put in to a final performance
is staggering. They memorize music and
movements, with the guiding hand of Ivan
Manning, that create such a delightful show.
This year it seemed Mother Nature was not
very nice to us on many of our Saturday
marching competitions and so it was a wet
season, including our own Clarkston Invita-

tional. However, these students brought it no


matter the weather and I applaud their commitment to keep on marching in the rain and
cold. I cant say enough about this group of
dedicated students.
I would also like to thank the area businesses who support us year after year, all of
the chair people who put in so much preparation and then work the entire day, our pit
crew who always come through with whatever is needed as well as hefting instruments
around, and Phil Bertolini and Gary Kaul for
coming out in the cold and rain to present
awards. I cant say enough about all the volunteers who step up and help run this event.
You are all awesome!
On a personal note, I am sad to see my
tenure come to end this season. Ive been so
honored to be the president of Clarkston
Schools Instrumental Music for more years
than I thought would be possible. Ive enjoyed every single minute of my four children being in band from sixth grade to 12.
Its been almost 10 years in marching band
alone! There have been so many concerts,
practices, football games, marching band
camps, competitions, festivals, and much
more. Its been hard work, but simply joyful,
and I consider myself so very lucky to have
been a part of instrumental music in
Clarkston. I want each person I have worked
with over the years to know how much you
have touched my heart. Shawn Chamberlain,
you are simply wonderful.
Kelly Finazzo
President, CSIMA

A call against business as usual


Dear Editor,
I noticed with some dismay that there were
no letters to the editor in last weeks
Clarkston News. Even in the tiny Village of
Clarkston there was much to write about.
Multiple law suits against the city with
more rumored, a new path and bridge in the
park that does not meet ADA or any other
governing criteria for a public walkway, undefined parking problems that will no doubt
be ignored after much study, a council member berating members of the public for commenting during public comments at Council
meetings and not one member of the council
saying anything in defense of those they supposedly represent, a city manager who berates a state representative for talking to those
they represent, and an election that pretty
much confirms business as usual in the Village Hall.
On the positive side, we have successful
restaurants with some exciting new ones com-

ing very soon, some great stores with great


owners, a renewed interest in the arts with
the Clarkston Cultural Arts group, and good
people living here. OK, thats all that I can
think of and thats troubling so perhaps some
of your other readers can help me out.
At a minimum, lets inform our leaders
and the public that any attempt to limit free
speech and the ability to talk to our representatives is not acceptable. That those who
think we cannot have civil discourse should
not be representing us. That those who represent us but do not want to talk to us in a
civil manner, should not be in our government.
Unfortunately I dont see it happening any
time soon in the Village of Clarkston with
the government we currently have. Congratulations to the newly elected City Council
members. Business as usual is not acceptable.
Cory Johnston

On October 7, I wrote about the love of cooler fall
weather. Temperatures were starting to dip into the fifties and I anticipated whipping out and donning my
sweater vests. (Of course, this was before a month of
60s and 70s that just ended last week. Go figure.)
In the column headlined, Fall is when my fashion
senses shine! I admitted to the world, I know, it is a
hard burden to carry, but I have broad shoulders. I can
handle the responsibility and I am about to share with you,
my minions, that my fashion-maven spidy senses really
start to tingle when the temperatures fall.
I think some of you readers doubt my legendary status in the Metro Detroit fashion scene?
Heres what reader Joe Gretka, formally of Leonard,
wrote me:
Don, your column a few weeks back describing your
fall fashion sense got me thinking about my own sense
of style when the weather starts getting cooler. I thought
Id pass along a few tips to help with your future wardrobe choices. These changes are still on target when it
comes to style and I know youll find them refreshing
and possibly part of your future buying options.
First of all you can put away those puffy white
tennis shoes (no white after Labor Day) and replace
them with a nice black pair of shoes with the duel Velcro
fasteners.
Second, get yourself one of those Reindeer sweaters. You know the ones every guy got for Christmas
from some friend or relative? Now heres the important part: Dont wear the sweater, simply drape it on
your back and tie the sleeves together in front of you.
Finally, dont be afraid of the most important accessory - Suspenders!

The fall weather requires long pants and long pants


equal sags and droops. Dont choose the solid color
narrow suspenders. Go for the wide bright or patterned style maybe with a colorful fall scene. The
wider suspenders come with a larger and stronger
clasp. This is important because not only will they
hold up your pants comfortably you can also fasten
the clasp to your underwear and kill two birds with
one stone.
Youll know youre in step when you walk through
a mall and watch the heads turn with the look of
astonishment.
* * *
Thanks, Joe -- I think?
* * *
So, I have been hearing about an effort afoot to
open up and change the Michigan Constitution to
put in verbiage stating something like, It is unconstitutional to discriminate against anyone based on
their sexuality, gender identity . . . Something like
that.
Since I am running out of space here this week, I
will bring it up later with a more thought-out column.
What I will say here is, I dont like the idea of specifying who cannot be discriminated against, if only
because that means everybody else not listed is fair
game for discrimination.
Quite simply, if the states constitution will be
opened and changed, it should say something like,
No person shall be discriminated against for any
reason based on being born, living and breathing and
not hurting anybody else.
Hmm? But, what about red heads?
I will try to whip that one out for next week!

Q: What if my gums bleed when I brush or floss?


A: Usually this is an indication that there is a problem with your
gums such as inflammation and buildup of plaque and bacteria
on your teeth. This is called gingivitis. Sometimes bleeding
may only be in one isolated area. This is often the result of
poorly fitting crowns and/or fillings which in turn tend to pack
food debris in between the teeth. If there is generalized
bleeding throughout the mouth, it may be a sign of periodontal
(gum) disease or even an undiagnosed serious medical
condition. Regardless, if your gums bleed you should see your
dentist right away.

can predict what a judge or jury might award to the injured person. Homeowners,
auto and watercraft policies are designed to provide coverage when the liability
on other policies have reached their limits. In the event an accident happens and
you are sued, you could be forced to pay a legal judgement from your current
assets and future earnings. A Personal Umbrella policy will also pay for defense
costs, which wuickly add up even if you win your case. The cost for an Umbrella
policy varies depending on your needs and is usually very affordable. Who needs
it? Anyone with assets and/or earnings that need to be protected.

KITCHEN RENNOVATIONS, CABINETS AND COUNTERTOPS

Q. What are the best materials to use when replacing my countertops?


A. There are no best materials. What is most important, is that you
hire an experienced, professional contractor who will listen to your wants
and needs, evaluate your current cabinetry and countertops, and help
you choose the counter surface that works best for you.

Orchard saves apple trees


BY ANDREA M. BEAUDOIN
Clarkston News Staff Writer
Roots to Fruits, a local company, will provide some new trees for local schools.
"The more trees we can plant at schools,
the better," said Roots to Fruits Co-founder
Mark Angelini. "We want to make the process more well known."
The company provides ecological and
permaculture designers and consultation, edible landscaping, and edible landscape design with native plants
Next week, owners Trevor Newman and
Angelini will present information to students
at Bailey Lake and Renaissance High School
about fruit trees and the environment.
Both schools get two new apple trees, to
be planted with hopes of planting fruit and
nut trees around the community will spread.
Roots to Fruit's will produce the trees from
trees they grew from an apple orchard on
Knox Road in Clarkston, which they are restoring through a variety of work including
clearing brush and restoring trees.
Newman and Angelini, Clarkston natives
and longtime friends, started their company
in 2010. They began restoring the orchard in
2012 after winning a grant from Sustainable
Agriculture Research and Education Program,, a program under the United States Department of Agriculture.
The grant helped Newman and Angelini
research and restore methods to save Michigan apple trees.
They restore the trees by grafting, a process that involves cutting a portion of the tree
and transplanting another tree stem in place
of the cut.
Apple trees grown from seed are completely different from their parent tree, so

some will not produce fruit.


"In the orchard we have done a variety of
grafting on trees," Angelini said.
Newman and Angelini have worked to
combine different types of trees, so they are
more healthy and productive. Their work is
a success.
"After we graft the tree it will start to produce fruit again," Newman said.
Trees once dying in the orchard are thriving and fruiting again.
Their grafting work has also resulted in
several different kinds of apples growing on
one tree, some are brand new species.
"We have over 50 kinds of apples in the
orchard, and some trees have three kinds of
apples," Newman said. "We have introduced
varieties that have never existed before."
Newman and Angelini have installed
many edible landscaping projects throughout Oakland County, in the Ann Arbor area,
Traverse City and many other communities.
They have also worked and in other states.
Here in Clarkston, their work is visible
outside KH Home on Main Street and Depot. On the south side of KH, the company
planted an edible garden filled with Clover
current, Alpine Strawberries and Bird's Foot
Trefoil.
Angelini and Newman said they hope
planting trees and installing more edible gardens gains momentum and keeps growing
in popularity.
"There is a whole town in England that
adopted an edible movement that grew to be
so successful it attracts tourists,"Angelini
said.
Newman and Angelini said many people
are becoming more familiar with edible gardening and productive landscapes, and they
hope even more people in Clarkston will become familiar with their work.
"I am excited for the promise of apple
trees and a land-based, local economy in
Oakland County," Angelini said.

A century of birthdays
BY PHIL CUSTODIO
Clarkston News Editor
Celebrating her 100th birthday on Nov.
17, Hazel Vancil of Clarkston is pretty happy
with life in 2015.
"I've heard it doesn't take much to keep
me happy," said Vancil, who has lived in
Clarkston for the past 40 years. "I dont think
money makes you happy. You'll be happy if
youre a happy person.
If she could change anything, she'd like
to still be able to drive.
You cant drive at my age, she said.
She and her husband, the late Paul Vancil,
raised two children, Sue McKee of Waterford
and Bill Vancil of Ortonville. She has five
grandchildren, seven great grandchildren,
and two great great grandchildren.
"She was a good mom. She did good job
raising two kids," McKee said.
"I didnt do everything. I had help," Hazel
said.
Paul passed away about 34 years ago at
age 66, after retiring from General Motors.
"I wish I hadnt lost my husband that
early," Hazel said. "He was super."

Over the years, she worked in grocery


stores, made wedding gowns as a
seamstress, worked in a glove factory, and
sold Tupperware.
"I did a lot of sewing. I liked to work,"
said Hazel, who still remembers the Great
Depression in the 1930s.
"We went through awful times. You
would either work or go hungry," she said.
"I dont know what kids would do now if
that happened."
She doesn't watch much on television
besides religious programming, and she
knows nothing about computers.
"I wouldnt touch one," she said. "I dont
know how to use them. I never missed it, I
dont feel like I did. What you dont have,
you dont miss."
Her advice to younger generations:
"Get all the education you can. Thats
what I wished I could have done," she said.
"I dont think I did anything special. I ate as
much as anyone else. I made the best fried
chicken. If everyone cooked that way today,
they would say that was bad. But it was good
for me."

Missing wallet

Stranger danger

A 46-year-old Independence Township


woman reported her wallet stolen after failing
to find it after two weeks, Nov. 4. She believes
someone took it from under the drivers seat
of her car, which she never locks. She also
said her cell phone was missing.

Deputies responded to Sashabaw


Middle School for a suspicious circumstance. The principal was contacted by a
parent who was concerned about a possible Stranger Danger situation at the bus
stop that occurred on Nov. 4 at about 6:45
a.m. The complainant reported her son
was walking to the bus stop when an elderly man approached him in a vehicle and
asked if he wanted a ride. The student declined, and boarded the bus safely. The
vehicle was described as an older small
grey or silver car, possibly a Lexus. The
man was described as being an older white
man with grey hair and a grey goatee. The
caller said her neighbors son saw the man
following his bus on the way home from
school. Once the complainant heard about
what her neighbors son had witnessed,
she contacted the school regarding both
incidents. Deputies searched the area and
surrounding bus stops for a suspect and
vehicle matching the description without
results.

Expired license

A deputy stopped a pickup truck for


turning left on a red light onto Maybee Road
from Clintonville Road, 8:54 p.m., Nov. 4. The
driver, a 33-year-old Independence

Windows opened to local art world


Clarkston Cultural Arts searched for window space to display artistic works, and they
found it at the corner of Waldon and Main.
The project spearheaded by the CCA is
called Windows.
Now visitors and residents can see several pieces of art in the windows of the old
Tierra Building.
In each of the many windows in the downtown Clarkston building, a piece of artwork
is on display.
Any artist can display their work in Windows if they are a member of the CCA and

CCA Director Denyse Semann Couture said,
Art is good, it brings life, art is alive, and it
makes you look at things outside the status
quo. It brings people together.
At night the artwork is lit up, so visitors
can still see the pieces. The art is very notably on display in the downtown building.
"We are so very thankful to Union Joints,
who so graciously allowed us to use their

Wolves finish top of the state


BY WENDI REARDON
Clarkston News Sports Writer
Runners faced tough competition at the
MHSAA Cross Country State Finals on Saturday and finished in the top 20.
The Lady Wolves finished in 11th place
with 346 points as Birmingham Seaholm,
Brighton, Highland-Milford, Northville and
Saline took the top five spots.
We did well, said Kevin Breen, head
coach for the girls cross country team. We
ended up taking 11th place - that was what
was expected. Some of the girls didnt have
their best races. I know they are disappointed
but overall it was a solid finish for us and one
of the best we have had in the last couple of
years. It was good to get the team out there
and be in the competition and make it to
states and that was my goal every year to get
the team there.
Senior Nicole Hanson led the team as she
finished in 25th place at 18:39.9.
Nicole had the injury to her foot which
hurt us the last couple of races, said Breen.
I dont think she was full strength but she
ran the best she could. She gave it her all.
She led the team as a senior as she has done
all along. It was good to have her out there.
Freshman Elizabeth Dalrymple finished as
the second runner in 50th place at 19:06.9.
She didnt have a good as a race as she
wanted but she is one of the best freshman
in Clarkston history, Breen added.
Also, finishing for Clarkston was freshman Malory Ferguson, 19:39.9; sophomore
Hailey Catania, 19:41.4; sophomore Emily
Gustafson, 19:48.5; senior Kailan Mehta,

19:56; and freshman Emily Ferguson, 19:56.6.


Hailey had a really great race and
dropped about 30 seconds, Breen added.
Emily had a strong race and Kailan and Emily
Ferguson also had solid races. They both
PRed by a couple of seconds.
The boys team finished in 19th place with
421 points as Rockford, Northville, Novi,
White Lake Lakeland and Rochester Adams
took the top five places.
It was a good finish, said Michael Taylor, head coach. Out of 150 Division 1
schools, a finish at 19 is a good accomplishment. I am really proud of these guys. They
worked hard, and they deserved what they
got all season. They competed every time
they went out.
Junior Mika Juuhl led the team, finishing
in 62nd place at 16:30.7. Also, finishing senior Grant Henley, 16:39.2; junior Gavin Eisert,
16:43; senior Eric Smith, 16:47.2; freshman
Shawn Slater, 16:49.1; junior Nickolas
Favazza, 16:58.2; and senior Michael Baker,
17:35.6.
The whole group ran as well as they did
at regionals, said Taylor. Mika did a great
job and Eric continued to be the glue in the
middle of the team that seems to hold things
together. Grant ran pretty well. The other
guys they kept under 17 minutes which is an
exceptional performance for those guys. It
was a solid performance for us.
He added the seniors helped the younger
classmen with group running and to make
sure they finish as a pack, and to stay close
and keep up which will help them out next
season.

Shutout King

BY WENDI REARDON
Clarkston News Sports Writer
Senior Conner Sajan was guardian of
the net for the Wolves this season and
finished his season with the Clarkston
Boys Varsity Soccer team with 12 shutouts
and a 89 save percentage.
I thought I had a great season, he
said. I played very well.
A few highlights from the season
include a shutout against Canton, 1-0, and
Plymouth Salem, 2-0, in the DeLaSalle
tournament, Sept. 12.
He played really solid with five saves,
Curtis Payment, head coach, said about
the Salem game.
Against the defending state champions
Canton, Sajan had ten saves.
He saved a breakaway. He saved a
couple of amazing shots, Payment added.
Sajan eight saves against crosstown
rivals Lake Orion, Sept. 22, 0-0
He did have an amazing game, said
Payment. He saved a breakaway in the
last ten minutes. He really saved us at the
end of the game.
He also only allowed one shot in the
net when the Wolves took on Rochester
Adams, 2-1, Sept. 17.
They knocked us out of the playoffs
the last few years, said Payment. Conner
had five saves. He probably saved about
ten crosses. He played amazing in the air.
Sajan began playing soccer when his
parents signed him up for the sport when
he was six-years-old.
I liked it and I pursued it the rest of my
life so far, he said.
He was introduced to the goalie
position six years later when his coach at
the time put him in the position for one
game.
He found he enjoyed it and stayed in
the position.
I enjoy the excitement and having the
team know you have their back, Sajan
added. Its a lot of fun directing my
defense. We are real close with each other
and we have a brotherly relationship. We
can get past anything together.
He did try other sports but kept coming
back to soccer, explaining it was the most
fun for him.
I enjoy it with the people around me

Wright
and the leaders who pushed me towards
it.
He would like to continue playing
soccer when he heads to college next fall.
He is currently looking at campuses in
Michigan and in the Grand Rapids area.
Sajan added it was important for him
to stay near family. Plus, going to a college
in Michigan will give them an opportunity
to visit and watch him play in games.
He plans to study business and focus
on financing because he finds the subject
fascinating.
When he isnt playing soccer, he
enjoys snowboarding and hanging out
with friends.
His advice for aspiring athletes is if
you enjoy it, keep pursuing it.

Hitters rule court

The Lady Wolves celebrate a point


against Lake Orion.

BY WENDI REARDON
Clarkston News Sports Writer
The Lady Wolves season ended against
Lake Orion after three games on Nov. 2.
"We played with a lot of passion and
determination," said Clarkston Varsity
Volleyball Head Coach Kelly Pinner. "We
knew we had a tough battle ahead of us.
Lake Orion is a great team that won the
district. They have been playing outstanding
all year. We played a good match against
them."
Clarkston was close in points in the first
and second games before Lake Orion won,
25-23 and 25-22. Then, the Dragons closed
the third game, 25-16.

team with 10 kills and senior Maggie Collins

had nine kills. Senior Emma Curd had six


blocks.
The Dragons ended the Wolves' eightyear streak at the OAA Red league
championship and district title.
"I told them after Lake Orion I don't want
you to walk away from this season thinking
you fell short or worried about the fact we
didn't win the league or win the district,"
Pinner said. "We had four really good seniors
they were out standing.
The four seniors include Maggie Collins,
Emma Curd, Ashley Schwartz and Lauren
Tate.
"They kept everybody up even in the face
of adversity," Pinner said. "Coming back from
some of those losses in the middle of the
season when we knew we werent going to
win the league it would have been easy for
the seniors to say this stinks and come in
with a different attitude. But they came in
with a positive attitude every day. They were
motivational for the rest of the girls. The
younger classmen learned a lot from them in
terms of how to bounce back from a situation
like that and how to keep striving for new
goals."
The Lady Wolves finished the season 3216-1 and have ten returners coming back next
season, including four sophomores - Jennifer
Chupinsky, Grace Kraft, Kayla Luchenbach
and Malinowski.
"I have had young kids on the bench but
in the terms of playing we have had one of
the youngest line ups we have had over the
years," Pinner said. "We had girls with a
huge learning curve the whole season. Some
girls developed at different stages than
others."
She added this season will help the
younger classmen for the next few years.
"They now know what it means to be in a
situation like that and the pressure you feel.
Hopefully they grew some from it," Pinner
said. "We definitely have a bright future
because we did have young kids that were
still developing. It helps our outlook for next
year."

Barbara has been instrumental in the survival and success of the Clarkston Independence District Library.
When Barb took office in 2010, the library was one of several departments of
the township, governed by the township
board. The law under which it was incorporated was repealed in 1976, causing
major funding and legal issues for the library.

From the beginning, Barb was a strong


advocate for re-establishing the library
with a district form of governance.
Through the complicated process, her
support was steadfast and impactful. As
Township Clerk, Barb kept herself and the
other township board members informed
as to the necessary steps to keep the process moving forward, as well as help the
board see the best path to resolution.
As a member of the Friends of the Library, Barb helped keep the community
engaged in the needs of the library and to
supply some of the extras to bring in new
and existing users.
According library director Julie
Meredith, Barb is the very definition of a
library champion.
Shes not the one standing on the
soap box shouting the praises of the library at the top of her voice, said
Meredith. She quietly develops support
one conversation at a time, allowing her
genuine passion to help educate people
about what the library truly means to
life in Clarkston and Independence
Township.

Communities come together for Aging in Place workshop. Photo by Andrea Beaudoin

Officials gather to grapple with aging population


BYANDREAM. BEAUDOIN
Clarkston News Staff Reporter
How communities care for an aging population and bridge the age gap was the topic
during the "Aging in Place" workshop at the
Oakland County executive building last week.
"The county calling all those people together was a great idea. Our communities need
to ensure our seniors can get around and
age in place with grace," said Independence
Township Supervisor Pat Kittle.
Downtown Development Authority directors, community officials and county executives gathered to hear presentations by keynote speaker Dick Carlisle, president of
Carlisle-Wortman Associate, and planner for
several communities including Independence
Township.
Clawson DDA Director Joan Horton and
Auburn Hills Director of Community Development Steve Cohen spoke about accomplishments in their community geared towards

helping aging residents live a better life and


also about the 2015 Friendly Action Plan created in the community.
Carolyn Morrison, president of Friends
of Seniors, on the Independence Township
Senior Center Board, and member of senior
council, said she was impressed with Carlise's
presentation and the workshop in general.
" It was excellent. I'm so pleased communities are taking interest in seniors and their
quality of life," Morrison said.
She spoke with Kittle about creating more
resources for seniors in Independence Township.
"Independence Township is going to
move forward. They did a survey two years
ago, we have been working on issues benefiting seniors in the community," she added.
Morrison, noted important information
given during the workshop.
"Seniors spend 92 percent of their income
locally," she pointed out.

Morrison said right now she and others


who work with seniors are addressing transportation issues for senior who cant drive.
"Our goal is to work with the community
so seniors stay for a lifetime," Morrison said.
"We need to look at the master plan and make
senior access to the township and city. For
so many years communities have focused
on the young population."
During the workshop, Carlisle told the
group the senior age group will be dominant
in a few decades.
By 2030 one in five residents will be seniors," he said. "By 2040 seniors will exceed
the youth."
Carlisle said senior generations nowadays
are much different.
"They are younger. They work longer, are
more physically active and more tech savvy."
Housing needs will change a lot, too.
Many large sprawling homes built today
will not be a popular housing choice for ei-

ther them as they age, or the youth, so communities will see the housing markets on
those homes decline.
He added it is time for communities to address the needs of a senior population now,
and many concepts benefitting seniors is included in "Placemaking" an initiative the state
of Michigan has encouraged communities to
embrace.
The Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce
kicked off a Placemaking in Clarkston in 2013.
A committee was also formed.
Placemaking creates spaces and places
bringing people together. It helps communities create places to bridge the gap between
young and old. It encourages communities
to create a "sense of place" or spaces and
places evoking a positive response from
people.
Speakers said communities must address
providing service, including health care, as
the aging population.

Living within the Townships means

2016 Budget Update


Patrick Kittle,
Township Supervisor
Just finished setting up the 2016 budgets. We made our final presentation
to the Township Board on October 20.
The next step in the approval process is
a Public Hearing and formal vote to be
held November 24. Thought you would
want to know the Township is on solid
ground financially and where we are
headed.
GENERAL FUND: Lets start with
the General Fund. The General Fund
(GF) is the pool of tax revenue used to
fund the primary functions of local government, that is, the Assessing Department, Treasurer, Clerk and Supervisor
Offices, the Finance and Building Departments, as well as the Parks, Recreation and Seniors team.
When all the departments data was
aggregated together, the General Fund
was set to spend $55,000 less than collected from taxes.
With an unrestricted fund balance of
$1.8M available over the 20% minimum
Township operational threshold, the
Board approved investing about
$350,000 per year over the next three
years from the GF cash balance into
capital improvements to upgrade our
Township and Parks. Township improvements for 2016 include a new security system and sidewalks for
Townhall.
The Township parks also get improvements: new electrical system and
interior paint for Brady Lodge in
Baycourt Park, bathroom renovations
at Sashabaw Plains and Clintonwood
Parks, a new camp building at
Clintonwood, a new roof for the softball building, plus ensuring Independence
is compliant with ADA requirements.
We feel this planned capital spend is a
sound investment in the community. Will
248

625-5111

keep you posted as projects for 2017 &


2018 are firmed up.
FIRE FUND: The Fire Fund is actually generated by two millages Fire
One at 3.1497 mils and
Fire Two at .35 mils. Fire
Two was approved in
2012 by Township residents to tide the Fire Department over during the
economic collapse in the
mid 2000s.
Fire Two has allowed
the Fire Department to
Township
continue to purchase esSupervisor
sential fire equipment
Pat Kittle
(tankers, ambulances, air
packs and the latest emergency medical
gear), as well as resurrect the Independence Fire Prevention Team. It is the
Townships plan to try to reduce the
amount levied with Fire Two to zero by
the year 2021 as the economy continues
to improve without compromising services.
Cutting Fire Two now, all at once, would
cripple Fire and ALS services for the community.
For 2016, the Fire Department will be
spending $55,434 less than generated by
the two approved millages to maintain and
equip the best fire and emergency response
team in North Oakland County. Chief
Mitch Petterson is doing a great job managing the team and the budgets in his new
role. If you have a chance, make it a point
to stop at the Citation substation and say
Hi to the new Chief.
POLICE FUND: Spending for the
Oakland County Sheriffs Department is
actually $33,090 higher than what we will
be collecting in taxes this year. This deficit spend is planned in that the Township
is authorizing the Sheriffs Department to
add a midnight shift supervisor to the Independence Team.
This increase in headcount will provide
an additional midnight shift presence on
the street with the advantage of on-scene

Thank You for Your Patience!


Its been a tough couple of months for this
office. My phone was blowing up on a
fairly regular basis from irate residents giving me an earful over the hassle and wait
times created with all the road construction. Well, the work is done. The trucks are
gone. The last orange barrels are finally
being picked up. And, from the positive
comments now being received, it appears
the project has done what it was engisupervision when emergencies arise. And
while the contract for the Sheriffs department that was just approved at the
October 20 Board meeting is only a oneyear pact with a net zero impact year over
year, the Township budgeted a worst case
scenario of a 3% increase in annual rates
for years 2017 and 2018 and still leave
the Police Fund Balance in a very favorable light. Will keep you posted when the
new contract with the OCSD is approved
and we know what the impact will be from
the new rates.
One additional highlight is the Township will resurrect the Neighborhood Road
Improvement Program from funds generated by the Oakland County Weighmaster. If your neighborhood is considering a
Special Assessment District to repave
your roads, either private or public, the
Township will kick-in up to a $20,000
match. Call the Supervisors Office at
248-625-5111 for details.
SAFETY PATH FUND: The Township Board is finally getting serious about
safety paths. The levied millage amount
was just increased to the maximum approved amount of .4467 increasing revenue by approximately $200,000 per year.
Budgeted Safety Path projects on the
table include: $400,000 for a North
Sashabaw pathway from Flemings Lake

neered to do help the flow of traffic


through a very busy intersection in a
more efficient and safe manner.
Thank you one and all for your patience.
Your consideration and support are really appreciated.
PS: Hang onto your hat. The next
project will be North Sashabaw from
Flemings Lake Road to Clarkston Road.
But relax this one is still a couple
years out.
-- Patrick Kittle
to Clarkston Road;
$600,000 co-op program with Oakland County Parks to link the north and
south entrances to Independence Oaks
County Park together along Sashabaw:
$600,000 for the three mile stretch
of ITC corridor from Clarkston Road to
Sashabaw Road near Oakhill Road;
$250,000 budgeted for a pathway
along Clintonville Road between Waldon
and Maybee Roads, and $200,000 for a
pathway along Cranberry Lake Road
between M-15 and Allen Road.
The Township, MDOT and HRC are
also beginning the due diligence to construct a pedestrian bridge over I-75 at
Waldon Road. This project will cost a
small fortune and is going to depend on
receiving Federal and State grants. Will
keep you in the loop as this project firms
up. A special thanks to Township
Trustee Dave Lohmeier for being the
driving force on this concept.
Sorry for the lengthy article, but we
thought it important to share the
financials with you. Bottom line is the
Township is on solid ground from a
money perspective.
Next month, well do a deep dive on

Times are a changing


By Patrick Kittle,
Township Supervisor
Bad news for you old timers who used to play
racquet ball at the Waterford Courts. The courts are
gone forever.
Good news for you beer aficionados who love a
cold ale. The new Hilltop Brewery is almost ready to
open. Featuring home brewed ale, an outdoor patio,
sports bar, dining and more ... the new Hilltop Brewery should be a crowd pleaser. While renovations
have seemed to be taking forever to date, the makeover is in full swing right now. It is estimated the
new micro-brewery should be open for business
within the next few months.
Will keep you posted.

Plans Approved for M-15 and Dixie
After years of putting up with the crumbling service station and now vacant land, the Township Planning Commission approved the site plan for a new
retail outlet at M-15 and Dixie Highway.
The front of the building facing the Village will
look as good as the rear and sides of the building
facing Dixie Highway, with plenty of glass and brick.
Primary access to the site will be from the adjoining
parking lot where the Rite Aide is located.
There will be plenty of landscaping to soften the

look of the property from Dixie travelers. The tip


of the lot will feature a patio with benches and a
flag pole.
Ground breaking is anticipated for 2016.

The move has started


McLaren Health Care to relocate
Emergency Room operations
By Patrick Kittle,
McLaren Health Care will be formally taking over
the Emergency Room operations at the Clarkston
Medical facility, located at Bow Pointe and
Sashabaw.
The former urgent care will be temporarily closed
for 10 weeks until McLaren can complete renovations to meet State requirements. In the meantime,
all non-trauma ambulance service will be routed to
the McLaren facility located in Watertower Place
at White Lake and Dixie Highway.
When the Bow Pointe ER is completed, the
Watertower facility will close.
McLaren Health Care has been trying to construct a $300M state of the art trauma center and
200 bed hospital in Independence Township for over
10 years without using one-penny of taxpayer dollars, stated Mr. Greg Lane, McLaren COO. This
is the first step in what has been a very long journey. McLaren is excited to be part of a great community like Independence.
To date, the State of Michigan Certificate of Need
Board has not approved the construction of the actual hospital. Dr. Tim ONeills family practice will
remain in operation at the Bow Pointe facility.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors: What you need to know


By Chief Mitch Petterson
The fire department has received numerous called asking about the difference
between standard carbon monoxide (CO)
detectors available at hardware and home
improvement stores, and the low-level
carbon monoxide detectors being sold by
local heating and cooling contractors. The
overall question being if one is better
than the other. The better question to ask
is whether or not one has a more appropriate application than the other. First, lets
define carbon monoxide, understand how
its produced, and how it affects the body.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, tasteless, odorless, gas that is a byproduct of
incomplete combustion. Basically, any
appliance, (including natural or gas fireplaces, barbecue grills, vehicle exhaust,
etc&) that has a flame, produces CO in
varying levels. In a high enough concentration, CO can be poisonous. Some appliances produce a very low concentration of carbon monoxide (like natural gas
stoves) while others produce a much
higher concentration (barbecue grills,
wood burning stoves). This is why certain appliances are vented to the outside,
such as a gas hot water heater or furnace. CO poisons the body by replacing
oxygen molecules in the bloodstream with
carbon monoxide molecules. A high
enough concentration of CO causes a poisoning of the tissues which impairs or destroys the body s normal respiratory,
cardiac, and neurological functions.
Even a candle produces carbon monoxide. But the concentration of CO is so
miniscule, that it easily dissipates from
the home through the natural air flow.
Standard Carbon Monoxide Detectors
For healthy persons, the variety of carbon monoxide detectors found at hardware and home improvement stores, meet
the industry standard for alerting occupants of the presence of concerning levels of carbon monoxide. Choosing a detector that has been certified by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), will assure that
the detector meets, or exceeds, the industry standard. These detectors provide
an audible alert prior to carbon monoxide
levels reaching dangerous levels. These
detectors have a tiered alarm activation
dependent on the concentration level of
CO over a period of time. As a rule, they
are certified to activate within one to four
hours of being exposed to a consistent
level of 70 parts per million (PPM), activate in less than one hour of being exposed to a consistent level of 150 PPM,
and activate in less than fifteen minutes

of being exposed to a consistent level of


400 PPM.
CO detectors with digital readouts will
display a number when the CO level
reaches 30 PPM or higher, but the audible alarm will not activate until 70 PPM.
The display provides early warning that
something is wrong before the audible
alarm ever activates.
Most healthy persons start to experience
the initial symptoms of CO poisoning after
one to two hours of consistent exposure to
200 PPM or more. The initial symptoms of
CO poisoning are:
Headache
Nausea / Vomiting
Fatigue
Symptoms of moderate to severe exposure to high concentrations of CO (400
PPM and higher, consistently over a one to
two hour period) are:

Severe Headache
Drowsiness / Confusion
Fast Heart Rate
Coma, and eventually, Death
Low-Level Carbon
Monoxide Detectors
For persons suffering from chronic
respiratory or cardiac diseases, such as
chronic bronchitis, emphysema, congestive heart failure, or coronary artery disease, low-level carbon monoxide detectors provide the benefit of early detection
and alert. Persons with these diseases are
more sensitive to the effects of lower concentrations of CO than are healthy persons. These detectors constantly monitor the air, and also have a tiered alarm
activation. As a rule, they are certified to
activate after five minutes of being exposed to a consistent level of 15-35 parts

per million (PPM), and activate after thirty


seconds of being exposed to a consistent
level of 70 PPM or greater.
These Low Level CO detectors are more
expensive (two to three times the cost of
standard CO detectors), and are sold and
installed by professional heating and cooling contractors.
Which Alarm is Right for Me?
Unless you have one of the diseases listed
above, or you have been told by a physician
that you - or a person staying in your home
- are susceptible to lower concentrations of
carbon monoxide, a standard CO alarm is
more than adequate.
If you have any questions regarding carbon monoxide or smoke detectors, or to
schedule a courtesy fire safety inspection
contact the Fire Department at (248) 6251924. Safety tips can be found online by

Change of seasons provide time to wonder


As the Clarkston Community Schools seek
to cultivate thinkers, learners, and positive
contributors to a global society , we fully
realize key dispositions of such thinkers
include thoughtful questioning, continuously
questioning (ourselves, our
Words from
parents, and our teachers),
and constantly and deeply the Sup't
wondering.
The fall of the year, as a
transition to winter, is a
splendid time to question,
ask, and wonder. As we walk
through the woods or down
our streets, we can see and
feel the seasons changing.
What is happening?
Why is it happening? Do Dr. Rod Rock
the same things happen everywhere on Earth
at the same time? These are amazing
opportunities to wonder together about our
world.
As children come home from school each
day, we can help, as families, friends, and
neighbors, to build these dispositions. We
can ask our children: What questions did
you ask today? We can hold in our own minds
the idea that our questions drive us as
learners.
Ron Ritchhart, a Harvard Researcher and
author, wrote: When Isidor I. Rabi won the
Nobel Prize in physics, he was asked, Why

did you become a scientist, rather than a


doctor or lawyer or businessman, like the
other immigrant kids in your neighborhood?
He replied, My mother made me a scientist
without ever intending it. Every other mother
in Brooklyn would ask her child after school:
So? Did you learn anything today? But not
my mother. She always asked me a different
question. Izzy, she would say, did you ask a
good question today? That difference asking
good questions made me become a scientist.
Let us work together to cultivate in our
children the disposition to seek deeper
meaning in the world around them.
In addition, I am happy to report as your
superintendent the following reasons to
celebrate this month your Clarkston
Community Schools:
The district is in the process of refunding
bonds, which will save taxpayers over $6
million.
Our Districts Operations Department has
begun providing operational services to the
Holly Schools. This represents monetary and
efficiency savings for both districts. We also
share operational and food service personnel
with Lake Orion~ community education
registration with Independence Township~
and a public television partnership with
Independence Township.
Phyle Industries recently donated
$250,000 to the Clarkston Athletic Boosters

to completely pay off the construction of the


Clarkston Athletic Fieldhouse. Thank you to
the Phyles, everyone who donated and
helped with construction, to the athletic
department, and to the Boosters for making
possible this enhancement to our community.
The CHS Marching Band competed in
the State Finals at Ford Field on Nov. 7.
The CHS Girls (regional champions) and
Boys Cross Country Teams competed in the
State Finals at Michigan International
Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan on Nov. 7.
Clarkston Schools is entering a
partnership with University of MichiganFlint to offer dual enrollment courses on
Clarkstons campus during the school day.
Eligible students can participate in one course
during the winter semester of this school year.
There is potential for this partnership to grow
in the coming years.
A sincere thank you goes out to everyone
who participated in Impact Weekend on Nov.
7 and 8.
As our alumni visit Clarkston from colleges
and careers to celebrate Thanksgiving with
their families, I wish to extend to them a
gracious welcome home and to send to them
my very best wishes. The same to all of our
staff members, students, families, and
community members.
Dr. Rod Rock is superintendent of
Clarkston Community Schools

Keys to heaven found in prayer


Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to all
who have served our country. Today and always we remember to stop and pray for everyone who is in harms way overseas and
for those who are in need of protection; The
light of God surrounds you, the love of God
enfolds you, the Power of God protects you
and the Presence of God watches over you;
wherever you are God is!
Wherever we are God is! Or, as we will
sometimes share with the
children, there is not a spot
Spiritual
where God is not. If I asMatters
cend to heaven, you are
there; if I make my bed in
Sheol (Hell), you are there.
Psalms 139:8.
Even in the midst of our
darkest days there is a loving, guiding, sustaining
presence and power that is
with us and within us,
Pastor
mighty to attract our good
Matthew Long
and to radiate good to others. We need but remember to call upon these
deep inner resources, our connection to God,
to Spirit, to Life.
A friend of mine gave me the phrase, If
God seems far away, who moved? I need
this gentle reminder at times to practice the
presence of God, rather than the absence of
God.
When we worry or are afraid, when we
hang onto anger or resentment, when we plot
and scheme, when we lie or bend the truth,
we are practicing the absence of God. We are
saying we are in charge, that there is no force
in the universe greater than us, we alone have
created the world and all that is in it. We are
like children covering our eyes with our hands
saying, you cant see me.
Repent (think again with a new level of
understanding) for the kingdom of God is at
hand (within our reach here and now.) Matthew 4:17.
This is the Gospel of Jesus, this is the
good news of the New Testament, the vision
of the Psalmist, the promise of Revelation
and the message of the Prophets: God, good
orderly direction, universal presence and
power, infinite spirit, divine beingness, cosmic consciousness, whatever name or concept of God and Heaven that we have is available to us in this now moment. The Kingdom
has come! Matthew 6:10.
Prayer and meditation are our keys to the

kingdom. This is how we practice the presence of God; we practice the presence of
peace, of love, of good out working in our
world and in our lives. God is not only our
father but a friend, a friend who wants to
hear from us, a friend who wants to have a
conversation with us, a friend who wants to
listen and to speak and be heard. This is what
prayer and meditation is: a conversation with
God.
Effective prayer is not about informing
God of our needs. God is omniscience: all
knowledge, omnipotence: all power, omnipresence: all presence. Omniscience already
knows all.
Effective prayer is about remembering
there is a God and we are not it. The words
we use are optional. We can memorize the
Our Father or Lords Prayer, the Shepherds
Psalm or 23rd Psalm, the Prayer of St. Francis,
the Prayer of Protection above in the first
paragraph, or any other words that speak to
us.
There are only three words necessary for
effective prayer. The first is: help, and the
other two are: thank you. I can do nothing
on my own. John 5:30.
We need help, we need guidance, we need
strength, we need the deep inner resources
arise out of humbly accepting our mortal limitations and opening ourselves to receive
Gods blessings in our lives.
An attitude of gratitude, giving thanks in
advance of the demonstration,is a necessary
ingredient in our realizing our blessings. It
strengthens our bond with the infinite potential and possibilities for being that are now
being made manifest within us, around us
and for us.
Meditation is listening. It can begin with
contemplation on the scriptures, the words
of prayer or a mantra. It is creating the space
for us to hear what spirit has to say to us. It
can be time in the silence, in the secret room
of our minds. Matthew 6:6.
Or it can be in nature, walking through the
woods or sitting by the lake. Any time and
place where we can quiet the drunken monkeys of thoughts and feelings and bodily
sensations we are creating the possibility for
listening to God; we are practicing the presence of God.This is where we not only know
but realize that; wherever we are, God is!
Blessings of peace, joy & love.
The Rev. Matthew E. Long is pastor of
Peace Unity Community.

The health & wellness of Americans


is in jeopardy. A report by the National
Research Council and the Institute of
Medicine shows the US is in dead last
among 17 countries including Australia,
Canada, Japan and Western Europe.
Experts in the health industry attribute
the dismal health rank due to poor and
under-insured. However,
the report concluded the
US health rank also
involves poor health in
people of affluence.
There
are
no
socioeconomic
boundaries.
From
infancy to adolescence,
young adulthood and old
Frank J.
age, people in America die
Granett
far more than the other
R.ph.
studied countries from
addiction, heart disease, cancer, diabetes,
pulmonary disease, and obesity.
Alarmingly, the study concluded
Americans consume more calories per
capita and abuse prescription (as well as
illicit) drugs than other countries.
As Director of Pharmacy Operations
at an adult psychiatric hospital, with over
28 years of consultative clinical
experience, I believe America requires an
immediate re-evaluation involving how
we assess and treat chronic disease.
Comprehensive assessments ruling out
underlying nutritional, environmental, and
physiological risk factors prior to
premature drug therapy should be
mandated for all conditions.
Americas youth consumes three times
the psychiatric and stimulant medications
than the rest of worlds children combined
as discussed in The American Epidemic:
Solutions for Over-medicating Our Youth.
We lead the world in suicide
massacres. Our food chain is toxified
with GMO, pesticides, preservatives,
food coloring additives and cancer
causing chemicals..

Heck, even the Subway food chain


recently got nailed for using
azodicarbonamide, a plastics foaming
agent, for their bread production. This
chemical is an effective bleaching agent
and helps produce more bread in less
time.
Sorry to be a messenger of bad news.
However, there is an upside to this report.
Americans are passionate, giving people,
and we help others in need if we have
the right information.
For many decades, Americans were
fed wrong information involving our
health and wellness. The US is home to
the best doctors, healthcare practitioners,
teachers and business leaders worldwide.
So how do we digest this bad report
card of Americas health and wellness,
and help people understand the direction
needed to move our country back into
the top tier of health in the world?
Education and information.
This monthly health & wellness series,
The Thrive Protocol, will provide
information, helping you and your family
become proactive in the development of
positive interventions, increasing physical
as well as mental health to prevent
disease. For example, how can we help
reduce the incidence of heart disease, the
number one killer in America?
Excessive craving consumption of
sugar, caffeine and fats combined with a
lack of exercise increases the risk of heart
disease.
There are nutritional
supplements to help people stop cravings
for these deadly food sources while
enhancing energy.
For more information visit the
Coalition Against Over Medicating Our
Youth, www.CAOOY.org and click the
Ask the pharmacist tab or email your
questions
to
me,
FrankGranett@CAOOY.org, or message
me on Facebook. Next month I will
discuss how to determine the underlying
causes of ADHD.

Fund raisers for Leader Dog program


Leader Dog for the Blind puppy raisers in
the Clarkston, Waterford, and White Lake
area have been raising funds for the New
Canine Development Center at Leader Dog
in Rochester Hills through Dine with Dogs.
Clarkston area Leader Dog for the Blind
host a fund raiser on Nov. 11 at Heroes BBQ
on Huron Street in Waterford Township.
This is an all day event where they will
donate 20 percent of the total bill if you tell
them you are there to support Leader Dog.
They will also have a 50/50 raffle going at
dinner time.
In December, Culvers hosts a fund raiser

on Thursday, Dec. 17, from 6-8pm. They will


donate 10 percent of the total sales of
everyone who comes in.
Kruse and Muer will donate 20 percent of
sales if you tell them you are supporting
Leader Dog on Monday, Jan. 18.
At each event, there will be several
puppies to greet customers. This also allows
people to come every month and watch the
puppies grow.
The goal is to raise $15,000, and they are
almost 75 percent there. For more information,

There was a lot of excitement and amazement as The Gateway unveiled a copper sculpture of the state of Michigan.

New Gateway to Clarkston


The Gateway of Clarkston,
formerly The Birdfeeder,
Clarkston Flower Shop and
Bonnie an Clyde, celebrated a
new name to combine three
stores. During the celebration, a
copper, 10-foot-tall sculpture of
the state of Michigan was unveiled.
Owners Sheri Schulz and
Steve Stroud have been preparing for the celebration for a long
time. Schultz said the copper
piece, created by Clarkston
based Iron Raven Metals, has
been in the works for years, and
she and Stroud, and employees
were excited to unveil the copper structure, which was created
as a symbolic Gateway to the
city of Clarkston.
Inside, the shop is beautifully

decorated for Christmas.


"It took us months to get
ready for Christmas," Schulz
said
We are really excited for our
customers and the local
community to see what well be
unveiling, says owner Steve
Stroud.
The shop has been family
owned for nearly 24 years. In
1992 Schulz and Stroud's parents,
Jerry and Patty, started the business. Jerry said his children have
been in charge for quite sometime and he is proud of the businesses growth and direction.
"I love what they are doing
here and I'm proud of them," he
said.
The Gateway is located at
7150 Main Street Clarkston.

Horton Hears a Who, Horton
Hatches the Egg and Miss
Gertrude McFuzz.
It takes place as JoJo, a creative
boy, imagines a story about how
Horton, an elephant, finds a clover
with a world on it called Whoville.
The small world is about to be
destroyed by citizens of the jungle
and JoJo and Horton are trying to
stop it.
Lauren Ormsby plays JoJo, the
son of Mr. and Mrs. Mayor in
Whoville.
"The whole play revolves
around JoJo's imagination," she
explained. "The play starts off as
he starts thinking of all these
characters and then it just explodes
into all these different ideas and
scenes."
Samantha Stanek and Justice
Williams play the roles of Mrs. and
Mr. Mayor.
"We are so busy with the Whos
and ruling them that we dont like
JoJo thinking these creative things
and he is abnormal," Stanek
explained.
"As his father and mayor I am
wanting him to act like me," said
Williams. "I am disappointed."

Though
JoJo's
parents
disapprove of his thinking, the Cat
in the Hat, played by Julia
Ruggirello, encourages JoJo to be
creative.
"The Cat in the Hat is the
narrator throughout the whole
story," Ruggirello explained. "He
eggs JoJo on to keep thinking
about these new ideas. Even
though her parents keep telling her
no more thinking, thinking is bad.
The Cat in the Hat is saying keep
thinking, thinking is good."
Ormsby explained playing JoJo
has been different because she is
playing a male character.
"It was different to use my
imagination to be someone I
haven't been before," she said.
Ruggirello added there were
some aspects of Cat in the Hat
which made it easy for her to step
into the role.
"Cat in the Hat is a goofball so I
didn't have to change that much
because I am kind of wacky
already," she smiled. "It is fun to
narrate the whole story, have lots
of energy and sing some songs. I
think its nice to be the big burst of
energy that keeps JoJo going
throughout the story. "
Seussical, Jr. is the first musical
production for the Clarkston Junior
High School Performing Arts
Center.
Mark Magni, theater director
explained they were looking for
something fun to do and Michael
Peterson, the junior high school

and high school's choir director,


suggested it.
"We wanted a play for a big,
flexible cast and just fun," Magni
added. "It something people knew
- there was recognition. Its your
imagination as a director, a
designer, as an actor. Theres very
little rules."
"I am so proud of the kids,"
Peterson added. "Its my first year
doing a junior high production and
it is a big undertaking for them.
Some of them have been in shows
before but not with the school. Its
been really neat to see them all
come together to work as a unit. I
am really happy for them and
hopefully it will encourage them to
try the high school productions."
The cast and crew invites the
community to come out and see the
production.
"Seussical is a nice children's
play," Stanek explained. "It's good
entertainment. I know my little
brother wants to see it badly
because he loves Dr. Seuss."
"It's really fun," Ormsby said.
"It's really involved with the
crowd."
"Yes," Ruggirello added. "I go
in the audience and talk to them.
It's great for families. I know a lot
of elementary schools talk about
Cat in the Hat and Dr. Seuss.
Green Eggs and Ham is our finale
song."
Seussical, Jr. is at the junior
high's performing arts center, Nov.
20 and 21, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5.

Cat in the Hat, played by Julia Ruggirello, sings How Lucky


You Are.

Horton, played by Dominic Maniscalchi, and Gertrude, played


by Bethany Vamvakitis, are excited to hear from JoJo and
Whoville.
