THE ANNUAL Owosso Historic Home Tour will
be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 20, said Elaine Greenway (right) and Lorraine Weckwert (left) of the
Owosso Historical Commission during Tuesday’s
Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce
Chamber A-M membership breakfast at the
Owosso-area Big Boy.
Among Tour locations will be the Thom Anderson home on Curwood Castle Drive, the Dimmick House bed and breakfast on W. Oliver (dating to the 1800s), Cerveny Jewelers, downtown
Owosso, Sosumi on E. Exchange and the second
floor rental unit of the Gutting Building next to
J&S Tires. Also the Demis Building (known for
decades as the home of Pabst Brothers Furniture
and Appliance, originally the Osburn Building
with a top floor Opera Hall.
In addition, the all-new Abiding in the Vine
Tea Room, soon to open in the 100 block of E.
Main (M-21), the newly-opened Market on Main
next door, the Hanna apartments in the former
Shippee & Smith building at Main and Water,
the Owosso Community Players with the newlyopened Lebowsky Center on E. Main and the
100-year-old Owosso Branch of the Shiawassee
District Library on W. Main.
The pioneer windows are among attractions of
the 1800s First Congregational Church, Washington at Williams, known as “The Stone Church,”
CIRCUIT JUDGE Gerald Lostracco, who was co-chair of the volunteer group
which began in about March 1985 to assure renovation of the landmark Shiawassee
County Courthouse spoke to the Board of Commissioners Committee of the Whole
Wednesday afternoon asking the board to get information on bonding for county
building maintenance needs. (Behind him is the framed rendering of highly-revered
Board Chairman Jake Surbeck, in whose honor the Surbeck Building is named, and
owossoindependent.com
who died in November 1972 while in office.)
The Courthouse Preservation Committee’s initial goal was to restore the ornate
Circuit Courtroom, then it expanded to the entire building, rather than let it deteriorate to the point where demolition was the only solution.
“We raised money for the work. I asked George Hoddy, who was then 80 years old,
to head our fund drive. He accepted and $1.5 million was raised. A Building Authority was established to bond for the rest on the $3.5 million project. We received state
grants as well.
“Because of this, the county did not have to ask for a millage. The Courthouse now
has a �True Market Value’ of $10 million, I’ve been told. I would be glad to meet
with board members on how the building authority can work so you can get information from bonding attorneys.”
In early 1990, the Building Authority financed the $500,000 addition to the county

jail, “the only addition it has had,” noted the Judge.
County Buildings and Grounds Sup’t. Phil Heavilin estimated total county building needs at about $3.5 million. Board Chairman Jeff Bartz said he would appoint
Commissioner Gary Holzhausen to meet with Judge Lostracco. Holzhausen said
one question he had was how the previous bonds were paid off.

Re-Bidding Underway
Owosso’s City Council voted to reject the sole bid received by the
city in late July for replacing the retaining wall along the Shiawassee
River adjacent to City Hall. City Manager Don Crawford had recommended holding the bid while seeing what could be done, since it was
valid for 30 days. That bid was for more than double the engineer’s
estimate of $305,000 for the work.
No bids were received for the city’s parking lot project involving
the lot between the Armory and Matthews Building, rebuilt several
years ago with a state grant, and the new more than 100-space parking lot just over half a block north of Wendy’s parking area, which
Crawford and past Assistant City Manager/Community Development
Director Adam Zettel said was because of the “parking shortage” in
the downtown.
Re-bidding on the parking lot project was underway by Aug. 8, with
plans to open bids at 3 p.m. Sept. 2, then confer with state officials
the next day on the nearly $700,000 state-administered Downtown
Infrastructure (DIG) grant.
The city has invested more than $100,000 in engineering for the
parking lot project as well as the retaining wall work.
During the meeting Tuesday night, councilmembers expressed
surprise to learn that the final Tax Increment Financing (TIF) plan
they had approved for the parking lot project did not include the

Letters to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
I would like to thank the voters of Shiawassee County
for recognizing the need to take care of our seniors by
voting yes on the Senior Millage on Aug. 5, 2014. It is not
without your continuous support that we are able to grow
our programs and to serve more seniors in their homes.
Cynthia Mayhew, executive director
Editor, The Independent:
I wanted to add my personal “Thank You” to everyone
who donated and/or worked on the millage campaigns
this summer for the Friends of SATA. It takes a group
effort and the results were, once again, very rewarding;
as were transit millage election results statewide. SATA
has clearly demonstrated its value to the communities that
participate in its service area.
I also want to let everyone know that, after several years
as the chair of the ad-hoc Friends of SATA organization,
it is my intention to step down from this post in the coming year. I will remain on hand to assist current SATA
Director Larry Alpert and incoming Director Mary Rice
through the transitioning phase with Larry’s retirement
this Oct. 1, and I won’t be completely disappearing from
the Friends, but I’ll be reducing my own volunteer activities in the coming year and I think it is time for some
fresh leadership to step up.
I hope that someone in the community will be interested
and willing to lead the Friends effort in the future, and if
anyone is interested in doing so and wishes more information, please feel free to contact me and I’ll be happy to
share what it involves.
Again, great job everyone and Thank You!
Clark Harder, Owosso

Take-Home Pay
Reduction
With Shiawassee County’s continued budget deficits expected after voters rejected the four-tenths mill Headlee
Override Aug. 5, county employees will be asked to contribute about 1.5 percent more of their pay to the Michigan Employees Retirement System (MERS) fund. That is
because the county’s MERS liability is 60.9 percent funded – and MERS has recommended that the county ask
employees to pay 5 percent of their pay into the system.
A Finance Committee special meeting will review
“what” the request should be, said its chairman, Commissioner John Plowman. “I’m thinking about 1.5 percent
rather than the 5 percent MERS has recommended,” he
told fellow commissioners during Wednesday’s Committee of the Whole meeting.
County Administrator TJ Clark read a letter on behalf of
county employees asking that commissioners make their
decision as soon as possible since employees’ take-home
pay will be reduced.
County Clerk Lauri Braid said that whatever the commissioners decide, the change can be put into effect for
non-represented employees anytime, reducing their takehome pay. Most of the county’s unionized employees have
contracts that have been extended on a year-to-year basis,
so commissioners will have to ask to re-open those contracts to make the change, and the cut in employee takehome pay, Braid said.
After the special committee meeting, which will be open
to all, emphasized Plowman, the recommendation will go
to the full board in September for action.

Editor, The Independent:
I want to thank all of those who came out and voted in
the Aug. 5 primary. Without your support, I would not be
moving on to the Nov. 4 election.
I also need to thank all who put out yard signs, stuffed
thousands of envelopes and assisted me in knocking on
thousands of doors. You know who you are, and your faith
in my candidacy is greatly appreciated.
Finally, I would like to give a special thanks to my two
primary opponents, who both ran positive campaigns and
were true gentlemen to me throughout the process.
As we take this campaign into November, please be assured that I will continue to fully serve the county as your
prosecuting attorney. I may not be able to reach out to as
many people as I would like, but my priority remains to
do the job I was elected to do. Thank you again, and on to

Letter to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
On behalf of The People’s Choice Committee, we wish to express our appreciation and
gratitude to the voters of Shiawassee County!
A democracy truly does spring from the grassroots level. We could not have had this
measure of success without all of you who attended board meetings, donated time/money, took a yard sign, talked to your family and friends; and, most importantly, voted Aug.
5 for improving our local government.
Our success moves us closer to bringing common sense and accountability back to
our county government. To complete this journey, we still must address several more
commissioner races in the Nov. 4 general election. This upcoming board’s election is all
about their direction and administration over the past 10 years.
The majority of the current board (with the exception of Commissioners Holzhausen and
Schneider) still does not get the message that all we ever wanted was for them to share in
the sacrifices, as has everyone else (i.e. the county employees and the taxpayers).
Anyone wishing to join this historic grassroots effort may call (989) 725-5389. Thank
you...this is a proud moment for Shiawassee County!

Burns Township Board to Buy
Streeter Property
Page 5
By Graham Sturgeon, staff writer
The Burns Township Board voted 3-2 on Monday, Aug. 11, to purchase the property
where the Streeter Funeral Home was located for no more than $80,000 (the property is
listed at $71,000) to build a new Township Hall and Library. The funeral home, which was
owned and operated by Ernie Streeter for many years, was destroyed by fire Jan. 27, 2011.
Township Clerk Sharon Granger had informed the board that the current site of the
Township Hall, which is on the north side of Bath Road at the corner of Champagne
Lane, is too small to accommodate the township’s fire staff and the Township Hall facilities together, so an addition or new building would be necessary.
Supervisor Dave Mitchell, along with Treasurer Valerie Ritter and Trustee Cheryl Cole,
believe that the Streeter site, which is further east on the south side of Bath Road, would
be optimal for many reasons. In addition to the existing township building needing upgrades to its equipment and storage space, the three also cited the benefit of being closer
to the downtown area as reasoning for their decision. The Streeter site also has two sewer
hook-ups and two water hook-ups, as well as two existing buildings that could be put to
use by the township.
The dissenting voters, Township Clerk Granger and Trustee Gary Adams, said they
were caught off guard by this proposal, and do not like the idea of spending upwards
of $80,000 to purchase a new site when the township already owns five acres at its current location. According to Clerk Granger, the board has been planning for nearly three
years to add on to the current building and has raised nearly $500,000 to do just that.
This proposal, which Granger says was “sprung on” herself and Trustee Adams, could
create many potential problems. If the township offices were moved across the street to
the new site, that would leave the Burns Township Fire Department to care for the entire
existing building with the 1 mill operating budget the department has, which Granger
said “would be next to impossible.” She said she is also worried that the Fire Department
would then be responsible for the much-needed repairs that the Bath Road facility is in
line for. These repairs include an update to the radiant heating system and the tiling of
the parking lot, which would have to come out of the Fire Department’s operating budget
or their 1/2 mill repair and equipment budget.
“I was completely caught off guard by this proposal, and I do not appreciate being put in
this position,” she said. Granger hopes that this is not the last word on the issue, and she
“hopes that the board would want the approval of all five members before going ahead
with such an expensive project.”

THE FRESH & LOCAL Market at
DeVries Nature Conservancy, operating
3 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays in the DNC’s red
barn, 2635 N. M-52, began with a ceremonial ribbon cutting Wednesday afternoon,
Aug. 13, involving the Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors.
The chamber’s oversized scissors were
held by DeVries Nature Conservancy Executive Director Ken Algozin joined by
board members Charlie Keenan and Aubrey Grant, her son, James, 8, the DeVries Garden Manager Heather Schwerin
of Clio, Linda Keenan, Ambassadors and
Sue Osika of the chamber’s staff.
Charlie Keenan, who is president of the
Owosso Community Players, has grown
pumpkins at DeVries for four years,
which are available to the public. Aubrey
Grant was co-manager of the Downtown
Owosso Farmers’ Market during a transitional time.
It operates on the principal that fresh, locally grown food should be available and
affordable to everyone. The Market’s midweek hours of operation were selected to
accommodate anyone whose work schedule or family responsibilities limit their
ability to attend the traditional Saturday
morning farmers’ markets, said Algozin.
In addition to cash payments, the Market accepts Visa, MasterCard, Debit cards
and SNAP benefits (Bridge Cards). Individuals interested in volunteering at the
DeVries Community Garden will receive
produce vouchers in exchange for hours
worked. In addition to items grown at
the DeVries community garden, produce
from other local growers will be available
for purchase. For more information, persons may call (989) 723-3365, or send an

Letter to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
If it wasn’t for the Headlee Amendment we would be renting our property from the
government as they do in Russia. The government would have taxed us out of ownership.
Government uses all the best reasons to increase their income under the pretext that
they are doing this because they need more income to help the Veterans, schools, roads,
ambulance service, fire departments, road improvement, elderly, handicapped and every
thing else that people are compassionate about.
When a person runs for office they should understand that they are being elected to
operate the office with the money that the voters have allowed them to use, not bypass
Headlee, create and raise everything they can contrive to increase revenue.
In 2007 our county commissioners voted in new private road requirements. Many
residential developments are created with private roads. The private roads are to be developed and maintained by the developer or the residents as agreed. The county has no
obligation to maintain or improve any part of the road.
In 2007 the best lake development since Manitou was under way at the former Springbrook Lake. It was a fantastic development with large lots and high-end housing. This
was being developed and budgeted with a private road agreement.
The county road commissioner wanted the private road to be upgraded to such high
standards that it destroyed the entire development. The Board of Realtors, myself and
several other realtors, the developer and others fought the new ridiculous upgrade to the
private road rules to no avail. The shortsighted commissioners destroyed what could be
bringing in huge amounts of revenue that could be used
for all the wonderful things I mentioned above.
Owosso has made destructive decisions for no apparent
good reasons that killed potential revenue. Now they want
us to pay more taxes for their shortsightedness. Say no to
all Headlee Overrides. Let them know that they will loose
elcome to
their jobs if they don’t think like responsible people that
are working on behalf of the citizens.

Owosso and Cat
Problems
The City Council will talk about doing
something about nuisance cats, feral cats
and cat colonies in neighborhoods – all
after a Dutchtown resident asked the city
council’s members Aug. 4 to “do your
jobs” on enforcement of the City Code
which limits adult animals to three per
residence. Councilmembers turned to City
Manager Don Crawford and Public Safety
Director Kevin Lenkert to follow-up on the
Code enforcement. That will be during the
7:30 p.m. Monday meeting.
A year ago Crawford proposed that the
city license both dogs and cats when he
was asking that the city take licensing
away from Shiawassee County. The council held a public hearing on that, but put
the proposal on hold while enforcement
of dog issues was reviewed with county
commissioners.
The city has a leash law – requiring that
all dogs be on a leash when they are off an
owner’s property, except if they are at the
Bark Park, or face the potential of a fine up
to $500. Owners must clean up dog and cat
droppings under the Code, or face a fine
up to $500 as well. Dogs are banned from
being loose on a sidewalk or anyone else’s
property at any time in Owosso.

Letter to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
We would like to thank the communities of Laingsburg and Owosso, as well as the neighboring communities, for your generosity and
support through this difficult time
in our lives.
The Coral for Crystal benefit June
28 at American Legion Post 248
in Laingsburg was a huge success.
Thank you to those who organized
everything, set up and cleaned up,
served food and drinks, donated food, donated raffle and
silent auction items, donated financially and just simply
attended! The constant flow of people there was overwhelming and brought Jason and I to tears! You all truly
have servant hearts and we are forever grateful to have
you all in our lives.
This benefit could not have been possible without
each and every one of you. We cannot thank everyone
enough for all that has been done, and continues to be
done, for our precious family. The money raised was

astounding and will help beyond
measure as I continue to fight the
battle of a lifetime. As expenses
keep coming, from gas to drive
to Novi weekly, to healthier food
options, supplements and medical
bills, we are so thankful we do not
have to stress about how to pay
for it all. But the money doesn’t
mean nearly as much to us as the
true love and sincere prayers and
(Courtesy Photo) heartfelt thoughts our family receives daily.
God has chosen me to be His seed and is using me in so
many ways to bring glory to Him! If ever you are struggling, you can find comfort in Him… I promise life is
easier when you have a great vertical relationship with
God. Find the good and the joy in life every single day
and wake up happy!
They say it takes a village to raise a child. I say it takes
an army to help others get through some of the toughest
times in a person’s life. Thank you for being my army!
Love, prayers and thanks to you all.

Thank you to Troop 85 of Owosso, and the Boy Scouts
of America, and our chartering organization, Trinity

Thank you to Jeff Peltier, the architect, for designing the
stairs and to Dave Chrenka, the county building inspector, for making sure the building
of the stairs follows the
989-723-1118
Building Code.
Thank you to Tom Leaf for all the time you put in on
building the stairs, doing videography and photography
and for being in charge of the monies for the project. You
are a true friend and you made my project easier through
your support, knowledge and time.
Special thanks to the tellers and staff at SageLink Credit

Editor, The Independent:
I would like to extend my thanks to the Shiawassee
County community for their support in the construction
of the stairs at Henderson Road County Park and the Tom
Harkema Memorial Trail. Thank you to the Harkema
family! I especially appreciate Sue Harkema and Mary
Kay Kenny. I could not have built this without your support. All you have done is greatly appreciated.
Thank you to the Owosso Public Schools for their support. Specifically, Teresa Laskowski for coordinating

I appreciate all the funds donated for the project from
all sources. I want to recognize Main Beverage Company

largest donation by any business to the project.
To the men who worked on the project: Thank You! I
appreciate Ric Crawford for transporting and spreading
gravel. Tony Newman, the Drain Commissioner, without
your guidance and help, the project could not have been
done especially the culvert installation. Sean Cooney and
Mark from Home Depot: your help, support and knowledge in building the stairs was instrumental in completing
the project. Josh Poullion, Noah Giraud, Jared Mersino
and Ben Culp all donated time to help build the stairs and
in other parts of the project. You each have my sincere
