JIM PETERSON, the
Owosso Community Players
Interim Executive Director,
announced Tuesday morning during the Shiawassee
Regional Chamber of Commerce Chamber A-M Membership breakfast at the
Owosso-area Big Boy that
as of a week earlier he had
taken on those duties with
OCP.
“We have a lot of good
people,” said Peterson, who
added that his role is that
of a volunteer. Peterson
and his wife, Cheryl, have
been deeply involved with
rebuilding of the Lebowsky
Center after the February
2007 fire which destroyed
the Stagehouse and Auditorium, leaving the lobby heavily damaged.
OCP’s latest production, “Dearly Departed,” opens Friday evening for two
weekends at the Lebowsky Center, with tickets available through the OCP’s online service, or the Box Office, 114 E. Main (M-21), downtown Owosso.

The Owosso Community Players will open
the comedy “Dearly Departed” at the Lebowsky
Center on Nov. 14 at
8 p.m. for a two-weekend
run. Directed by John
Morovitz and David
Conant, this Southern
comedy tells the tale of
the dysfunctional Turpin
family as they struggle to
maintain proper decorum
for their father’s funeral.
The show is sponsored by
Watkins Funeral Homes
and Wunderlich Securities of Flint.
The story takes place
in the backwoods of the
Bible Belt, where the
patriarch of the Turpin
family drops dead at the
breakfast table. The eccentric family, led by the
newly-widowed Raynelle
(Carol Henley) tries to
cope with the funeral
arrangements. The task
is not easy, thanks to
drunken brother Ray
Budd (Jason Reich), financially-challenged Junior (Paul Peters) and his
suspicious wife (Nicole
Davis). Other characters include the spinster
sister Delightful (Jessica
Hickey), the condescending holy roller Aunt Marquerite (Angela Clayton)
and her deadbeat son
Royce (Tom Laurin), as
well as the former yam
queen Juanita (Erin
Powell) and the Reverend Hooker (Bill Altimore). “The characters
and the situations in this
family are what makes
the show so funny,” said
Rhonda Abrahms, who
portrays Ray Budd’s
wife Lucille. “I’m having
a blast laughing at rehearsal, though my particular character is one

Letters to the Editor
Editor, The Independent:
I came across this in World Magazine and thought it
was a very fitting tribute to our veterans:
Ashlyn Moore, with the Patriotic Education Travel
Program of the College of the Ozarks, traveled to the
beaches of Normandy with 10 WWII veterans for the
65th anniversary of D-Day. “One of the veterans came
up to me at the end of the trip and he had been very emotional that day. He had been reflecting a lot on his fallen
friends. And he was so emotional he could hardly speak.
I was just standing there holding his hand, and he looked
at me and said, ‘Ashlyn, make it worth it. Make your life
worth the sacrifice.’ And that is something I vow to do
every single day.”
May we all make our lives worth the great sacrifice of
our veterans and their families.

Editor, The Independent:
Today’s children are our future and soon they will become workers, parents and leaders. As a community, we
depend on the future success of our children’s healthy development and growth. With support from nurturing families and engaged communities, our children can thrive
and have the opportunity to grow into healthy, caring and
contributing adults. Preventing child abuse and neglect
– and other childhood traumas – will take effort from all
families and community members to ensure our children
have the foundation to become tomorrow’s leaders.
This past April, we observed National Child Abuse Prevention Month and it reminds us all of our collective responsibility to make positive choices that will impact the
safety and well-being of our children. Throughout the year,
Shiawassee County Community Mental Health Authority
(SCCMHA) encourages all individuals and organizations
to play a role in making Shiawassee County a better place
for children and families. By ensuring that parents have
the knowledge, skills and resources they need to care for
their children, we can help promote children’s social and
emotional well-being as well as prevent child maltreatment within families and communities.
Research shows that when parents provide six protective factors, the risk of neglect and abuse diminish and
optimal outcomes for children, youth and families are
promoted. The six protective factors are: *Nurturing and
attachment. *Knowledge of parenting and of child and
Experience

youth development. *Parental resilience. *Social connections. *Concrete supports for parents. *Social and emotional development well-being.
“All year long, we recognize and celebrate the important role that communities play in protecting children,” said Joe Sedlock, SCCMHA CEO. “Everyone’s
participation is critical. Focusing on ways to build and
promote the protective factors, in every interaction with
children and families, is the best thing our community can do to prevent child abuse and promote optimal
child development.”

The Beta Sigma Phi Sorority Sisters would like to Thank
everyone for their support at our 23rd Annual DaddyDaughter Dance held Oct. 22 at the Owosso Knights of
Columbus Hall. Thanks to the Knights of Columbus for
the use of their facility. Thank you to our DJ, Kurt Lewis,
for 23 years of great music and entertainment. Thanks
to all the Dads and Daughters that had an enjoyable evening of dancing. We especially thank the members of the
Owosso National Honor Society, that helped us as they
earned community service hours. We look forward to seeing everyone next fall. The proceeds from the dance are
used for our “Warm Coats for Kids” project. We donate
coats, hats, gloves, and socks, to the elementary schools
in Shiawassee County.

We have a rare opportunity to bring our country back to
greatness and give meaningful employment and a future
to those that deserve it most. This is so simple it would
give millions of jobs to deserving Americans, eliminate
trillions in national debt, and put the environmental protection agency out of business.

because of cement casings or human error. If your water
is polluted you would be repaid with a huge reimbursement because there is so much profit. Because this extraction is being done on land and not miles below the ocean
these companies will solve the problems. Remember also
that Arabs killed 3,000 people in the twin towers, another
5,000 fighting this unwinnable war, and took us from the
richest nation to the poorest with $17 trillion in debt.
Because the Arabs can extract a barrel of oil at $10 per
barrel and fracking cost $70 a barrel the Arabs have reduced the price of oil to $75 to put fracking out of business and keep us dependent on them.
Ten years ago, T. Boon Pickens suggested that we run
natural gas along our major expressways and convert our
trucks to natural gas. We now have capabilities of compressing natural gas and many areas are switching buses
and trucks to it and burning a non carbon emission as
they save well over 50% on fuel. Eventually this would
put fracking out of business also, and make America
free again.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could offer every returning Vet
a real job in construction, engineering, surveying, etc.,
instead of unemployment and welfare when they come
home and let the Arabs fight over worthless oil.
Another special group that would have priority to jobs
would be the coal miners and other coal related industries
that have been bankrupt because of cap and trade.
Is special interest more important than saving America?

Handel’s Messiah at
First Congregational
Church UCC
First Congregational Church UCC will
be presenting, free to the public Handel’s
Messiah, Saturday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. Conducted by Dr. J. Ellsworth Jackson with
full chorus, harpsichord, pipe organ and
chamber orchestra. Handel’s Messiah
is a musical right of the holiday season,
the baroque-era oratorio still awes listeners years after the composer’s death.
For many amateur choirs, the work is
the heart of their repertoire and the high
point of the year. In most of Handel’s oratorios, the soloists dominate and the choir
sings only brief choruses. But in Messiah,
says Laurence Cummings, director of
the London Handel Orchestra, “the chorus propels the work forward with great
emotional impact and uplifting messages.” Tickets will be available until we
reach capacity, complimentary tickets are
available at First Congregational Church
UCC, Shiawassee Art Center and the Shiawassee Chamber of Commerce.
Christmas Wishes
Program Begins
As the Holiday Season draws near, Capital Area Community Services, Inc. begins

Wishes. Becoming a donor would enable
you to fulfill wishes for low-income children who live in Shiawassee County. To
‘adopt’ a child or children for Christmas,
please call CACS at (989) 723-3115.
“Anyone who is not able or interested in
buying and wrapping a gift, but would like
to help by sending cash or a check, please
make it payable to Capital Area Community Services, Inc. (Christmas Wishes),
1845 Corunna Avenue (M-71), Owosso, MI
48867. We will purchase gift certificates
from local stores with all cash donations.
“We have received many applications
from low-income families registering their
children this year. Individuals, families,
businesses and other groups or organizations are encouraged to extend a helping
hand and add to the enjoyment of your
holiday. Thank you for caring!”

Sheriff’s Road
Patrol on
Chopping Block
By Helen A. Granger, staff writer
“The $1.5 million proposed office budget cut will eliminate the road patrol,”
Shiawassee County Sheriff’s Undersheriff Doug Powell said Monday, Nov. 10
after budget cuts were announced at the
Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners Finance and Administration committee meeting.
“Approximately 15 to 17 deputies will
be affected depending on our review of
the other non-mandated services,” Powell said. “At this point no one is in the
position to retire … we’ll just have to see
what happens once we review the entire
operations and consider all the factors.”
“It was not a joke folks. It was the real
deal,” Commissioner John Plowman,
chair of the committee said after announcing the following cuts: Buildings
and Grounds $40,000 (that includes
$20,000 for Courthouse maintenance
and $20,000 in wages); approximately
$20,000 expected utility savings; District
Court, $40,000; Probate Court, $40,000;
Prosecutor’s Office, $40,000; $52,000
from general government (mostly legal
fees and other government offices); and,
$1.5 million from the sheriff’s office.
The cuts eliminate an estimated $2.1 million from the 2015 county budget. That
leaves approximately $450,000 that the
county is planning to use from the delinquent tax fund. However, Treasurer Tom
Dwyer recommends only $300,000 be
budgeted from that fund. He also recommended that the county not make up the
$150,000 difference from the county’s
unassigned fund balance now at approximately $900,000.
Plowman explained in a separate interview with The Independent that the county is hoping to balance the 2015 county
budget with the proposed $2.1 million in
cuts and by taking the $450,000 from the
tax delinquent fund. “We do not plan to
Page 3
withdraw money from the county’s unassigned fund balance,” he said.
The unassigned fund balance – often referred to as a “rainy day fund” by municipalities and government entities – should
ideally be held at between 15 percent to
20 percent of the county’s overall $15
million budget, Plowman explained, adding: “That means the county should have
about $3 million in that fund and we only
have $900,000. We are shaving it close
with the cuts … unfortunately overhead costs are up and wages have been
crushed,” he said at the meeting.
No layoff announcements or personnel changes have been made at this
time pending review by the respective
departments.
The matter was referred to at the 4 p.m.
Nov. 12 Committee of the Whole meeting
with adoption expected Thursday.

Cold temperatures, heavy snow and treacherous ice storms are all risks of the
coming winter season.
“Severe winter weather can be dangerous and even life-threatening for people
who don’t take the proper precautions,” said FEMA Region V acting administrator
Janet Odeshoo. “Preparedness begins with knowing your risks, making a communications plan with your family and having an emergency supply kit with essentials
such as water, food, flashlights and medications.”
Once you’ve taken these steps, consider going beyond the basics of disaster preparedness with the following tips to stay safe this cold season: *Winterize your
emergency supply kit. Before winter approaches, add the following items to your
supply kit: Rock salt or other environmentally safe products to melt ice on walkways. Visit the Environmental Protection Agency for a complete list of recommended products.
* Sand to improve traction. *Snow shovels and other snow removal equipment.
*Sufficient heating fuel and/or a good supply of dry, seasoned wood for your fireplace or wood-burning stove. *Adequate clothing and blankets to keep you warm.
Stay fire safe: *Keep flammable items at least three feet from heat sources like
radiators, space heaters, fireplaces and wood stoves. *Plug only one heat-producing
appliance (such as a space heater) into an electrical outlet at a time. *Ensure you have
a working smoke alarm on every level of your home. Check it on a monthly basis.
Keep warm, even when it’s cold outside: *If you have a furnace, have it inspected
now to ensure it’s in good working condition. *If your home heating requires propane gas, stock up on your propane supply and ensure you have enough to last an
entire winter. Many homeowners faced shortages due to the record freezing winter
weather last year, and this season there’s the possibility of lower than normal tem989-723-1118
peratures again. Don’t be caught unprepared.
**Avoid the dangers of carbon monoxide by installing battery-powered or battery
back-up carbon monoxide detectors. *Winterize your home to extend the life of your
fuel supply by insulating walls and attics, caulking and weather-stripping doors and
windows, and installing storm windows or covering windows with plastic.
**Prevent frozen pipes: If your pipes are vulnerable to freezing, i.e., they run
through an unheated or unprotected space, consider keeping your faucet at a slow

Barbara Sluka-Zumsteg, associate director of Program Operations for CACS in Lansing
stated, “This is our way of celebrating the 50th anniversary, by distributing food, informing people of our services and thanking them for using the services.”
CACS distributes food to over 4,000 households in Eaton, Ingham, Clinton and Shiawassee counties quarterly, and that includes 800-900 households in Shiawassee County.
The food is provided by the USDA. Fifty percent of the cost is funded and a community
services block grant funds the other 50 percent. In 2013, over 1.2 million pounds of food
was distributed through the four counties. Lots of volunteers and CACS staff are needed
to hold a food distribution.
The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TCFAP) is a quarterly food assistance program that provides commodities to low-income households four times per year. Food boxes
are distributed during four months of the year – March, June, August and November.
Also available is Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), which is also funded by the USDA. Food packages are distributed monthly to supplement the nutritional
needs of low-income pregnant and breast-feeding women, new mothers up to one year
postpartum, infants, children up to their sixth birthday and those persons at least 60
years of age who meet income eligibility requirements.
Also available through CACS are programs for Family Stability, which include homeless prevention and utility and housing assistance; Foreclosure Counseling; Energy Education; Financial Education; Free Income Tax Preparation; Advocacy, Outreach and Assistance; and Information/Referral and Linkage to other services in the community. For
more information, persons may visit the Capital Area Community Services Office, 1845
Corunna Avenue, Owosso, or by calling (989) 723-3115.

80 percent or more reductions needed to prevent the most dangerous risks of climate disruption. The target is within reach, he says, but power plant carbon pollution standards,
among other changes, will be needed.
Lashof adds that the only way to keep the ball rolling is via a coordinated effort including stricter federal carbon and energy efficiency standards, new state renewable energy
and energy efficiency incentives and reworked zoning and transportation policies that
discourage the use of private automobiles. “We can build the clean energy future we
need, but we aren’t there yet and it’s not going to happen by itself.”
Also, even if Americans can mobilize to get their emissions in check, will it matter?
During 2012, energy-related carbon emissions fell by some 3.7 percent in the U.S., but
rose 1.4 percent overall around the world. Indeed, global carbon emissions are on an
unrelenting upward march as developing nations acquire the taste for the extravagant
fossil-fuel-driven lifestyle perfected in the U.S.

United Methodist Women Celebration
Over 300 women plus several clergy members gathered at the Owosso First United
Methodist Church on Saturday, Oct. 25, for the 41st annual celebration and meeting of
the United Methodist Women Detroit Conference.
The conference theme was “To Experience Freedom as Whole Persons.” The ingathering gift for this meeting was the collection of socks by all of the attendee with 2,702 pairs
of socks collected and donated to the Shiawassee County Salvation Army.
Carolyn Wing, president of the local UMW, greeted and welcomed the group and Kay
Mowery, Detroit Conference UMW president conducted the meeting. A goodwill offering was collected with Meredith Cassing providing the solo accompaniment.
Missionaries Randy Joe Hildebrant from God’s Country Cooperative Parish, Paradise,
Michigan, Mary Gladstone-Highland, a Church and Community Worker based at the
Clarkston UMC, and Chelsea Spryes from the NOAH (Networking, Organizing & Advocating for the Homeless) in Detroit all spoke briefly of their positions.
In the afternoon following lunch, the guests were treated to special music by the Owosso First Bell Choir and pianist Ann Ferden.
Several committee reports were given and conference officers for the coming year were
installed. The conference budget (pledge to mission) is $275,000.
Keynote speaker was Michigan area Bishop Deborah Lieder Kiesey. She was ordained
as a Deacon in 1974 and as an Elder in 1977. After serving numerous churches, she was
appointed a Bishop in 2004. Following this, communion was served and the ingathering
of socks was dedicated and the benediction given.
Previously, on Oct. 14, the local group met with Joanne McCall from Nelson-House
Funeral Home for the program. McCall gave a gift certificate to Jan Mayer. Linda Harris
led devotions and Judy Nichols and Gail Rheaume served refreshments.
Decline of CO2 Emissions
Continued from Page 6
Furthermore, EIA says our energy-related carbon emissions are already rising again
given recent increases in natural gas prices that have steered some utilities back to coal.
The EIA anticipates U.S. energy-related carbon emissions rising 1.7 percent in 2013
and another 0.9 percent in 2014. The most important remaining question, says Lashof,
is whether or not the U.S. will continue to reduce its CO2 emissions to achieve the
president’s 2020 goal of a 17 percent reduction from 2005 levels—and eventually the
