Committee Says Putnam Policing Sufficient, Recommends Survey

News Photo 4/23/14 - Putnam Township does not need extra police protection, but it would be beneficial if the residents were willing to pay for it. That was the determination of the township’s Police Protection Committee last night. The committee was established to examine whether the 40 hours a week of dedicated patrols by the Sheriff’s Department are sufficient, or if full time patrols from the Pinckney Police Department are warranted. After several weeks of discussions with stakeholders including Undersheriff Mike Murphy, Pinckney police Chief Jeff Newton, and Pinckney Schools Superintendent Rick Todd, the committee decided that additional patrols would be a quality of life improvement. However, they said the data on crime in the township does not justify paying for more than 40 hours a week of patrols, and the committee’s recommendation to the township board will be to continue to contract with the Sheriff’s Department. However, that is not the end of the issue. Committee Chair Pat Carney tells WHMI they are also recommending that the township seek public input on the issue through a professional survey company to determine if residents are willing to pay for 24-7 patrols. The upgrade would cost an estimated $800,000, doubling the size of the department and likely requiring a property tax of about 2.6 mills throughout the township and Village of Pinckney. While this would be an increase for most residents, it would be a substantial decrease in property taxes for those who live inside the village who already pay 6 mills for police protection. (TD)

Two Republicans, Four Dems File Last Minute For Local Races

News Photo 4/23/14 - The local races for the US House of Representatives and the county commission got some last-minute candidates before the filing deadline yesterday. With incumbent Mike Rogers resigning his 8th District seat in Congress, a total of seven candidates are vying for his spot. Three of them registered yesterday before the deadline to submit. Among them were Rochester Hills Republican Bryan Barnett as well as Democrats Jeffrey Hank and Eric Schertzing, both of East Lansing. In the race for the county commission, three more new candidates joined yesterday before the filing deadline. Donald Pushies and James Delcamp completed the Democratic roster, which now includes one candidate for each of the nine seats on the board. Republican Douglas Helzerman also joined the race last-minute and will challenge incumbent Ron VanHouten for the District 4 seat in the August primary. No eleventh-hour candidates joined the races for the local state senate and state house seats. (TD)

Bob Maxey Ford Of Howell Student Athlete Of The Week

Sports Photo This week we would like to recognize Hartland softball player Katie Singer. Singer pitched a perfect game in the Eagles ten to zero win over Wayne. Not only was she flawless on the mound but contributed to the offense as well going three for four with three RBI’s. She followed that up by scoring a pair of runs with two hits and two RBI’s in the second half of the double header. She is off to a great start this season and has been a big reason the team has a record of four and two. Once again we would like to recognize Hartland softball player Katie Singer as our student athlete of the week. Congratulations on an outstanding performance from Bob Maxey Ford of Howell and WHMI Livingston County’s Own 93-5.
 
Michigan Headlines

IONIA, Mich. (AP) - A convicted murderer who escaped from a Michigan prison in February faces a court hearing Wednesday on escape, carjacking and kidnapping charges. Michael Elliot is being arraigned in Ionia District Court. Elliot was captured Feb. 3 in LaPorte County, Ind., one day after escaping from Ionia Correctional Facility in western Michigan. Authorities say the 40-year-old slipped under gates and made holes in fences to get away before carjacking a woman in Ionia. The woman escaped in Indiana.

DETROIT (AP) - Federal regulators are investigating the 2014 Chevrolet Impala after a driver reported that the emergency braking system activated multiple times without warning. The driver says that in one instance, the Impala was traveling at 40 miles per hour with no one in front of it when the brakes activated. The car was struck in the rear by another vehicle. No injuries were reported.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court has overturned a decision that favored a Florida woman as guardian for grandchildren in Michigan. The court says Lori Scribner doesn't get an advantage under state law just because she's a relative. The children are age 12 and under and have been in foster care for five years. Foster parents want to adopt them. The case is returning to the appeals court for work on other issues.

DETROIT (AP) - A woman who successfully sued the University of Michigan over racial preferences says the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold a state ban on using race in university admissions is a "great victory" for voters and the state. Jennifer Gratz says the ruling is good news for university applicants who will know they're being accepted or rejected based on merit. The justices ruled 6-2 that Michigan voters had the right to change their state constitution in 2006 to prohibit public colleges and universities from taking account of race in admissions decisions.
