HPS Superintendent No Longer a Candidate for Muskegon Position

News Photo 4/23/14 - It appears as through Howell Superintendent Ron Wilson is no longer in the running for a job in west Michigan and will remain with the district at least for the time being. In a posting on a social media site, Wilson announced that he did not make the final cut for the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District position, saying he was rather disappointed, but not devastated. He interviewed recently and says the board decided to do second interviews with two candidates that have ISD experience but thanked the community for all of its support. Wilson’s contract with Howell was extended through 2017. There was a public show of support for Wilson to receive increased compensation while he sought employment in the west Michigan district, with some expressing frustration because the school board had not yet come to an agreement on a new contract with Wilson. Wilson’s total compensation package is $209,000. He’s seeking an increase to his base salary from $155,000 to just under $174,000, which he says would be congruent with what former Superintendent Chuck Breiner was earning in 2008. He is also seeking an annual 3% cost of living increase. A Board of Education committee has been working on possible contract proposal, but nothing has been formally presented. The Board of Education will hold its regularly scheduled meeting Monday at 7pm in the administration board room on Highlander Way. (JM)

Razzmatazz Manager To Remain As New Toy Store Steps In

News Photo 4/23/14 - The owners of the Razzmatazz Toy Store may be leaving town, but that does not mean Howell will lose its downtown toy vendor. The store is currently having a liquidation sale to empty out its inventory since the current owners are moving to California this year. After some uncertainty about the fate of the location, it was recently purchased by Toyology, a similar store currently located in West Bloomfield. Manager Becky Gremore will continue to operate the store and serve as its public face in Howell. She says the new company is very similar to Razzmatazz, and will continue to focus on educational and imaginative toys for local kids. She adds that she is very grateful that they will take over the store and allow her to continue to be Howell’s “toy lady.” The liquidation sale at Razzmatazz will continue until the inventory is gone or the lease runs out at the end of June. Toyology will likely set up its new store and open its doors in the first weeks of July. (TD)

Fire Department Millage Renewal Will Go Before Voters In August

News Photo 4/23/14 - Voters in Putnam Township will be asked to approve a millage renewal, rather than an increase, for the fire department this summer. Fire Chief Greg Amburgey tells WHMI the increase was discussed due to the rising cost of operating the department. The department responds to about 500-600 calls each year, compared to 300-400 per year a decade ago. Amburgey says he also expects to replace vehicles in the coming years, adding to the cost of operation. The current 1.1923-mill tax will provide the department with about $367,000 this year, but costs will exceed $400,000 and the difference will be taken from the department’s fund equity. The township and the fire department will reexamine the issue and determine if an increase is necessary in 2016. The renewal will be offered to voters on the August primary ballot. (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

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Rick Snyder isn't embracing Michigan House Speaker Jase Bolger's demand that Detroit unions give money to help shore up pensions as part of the city's strategy for exiting bankruptcy. Snyder and legislative leaders have pledged state aid to settle the bankruptcy, partly to ensure city pensioners can't sue the state when their benefits are trimmed. But it's not a done deal in the Legislature.

TROY, Mich. (AP) - A Detroit-area priest and his parish administrator are facing fraud and conspiracy charges. Prosecutors say the Reverend Edward Belczak and Janice Verschuren schemed to steal nearly $700,000 from St. Thomas More in Troy. Belczak was removed from the church last year after an audit raised questions about parish finances.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state school superintendent says students shouldn't be automatically suspended or expelled if other interventions can improve their behavior and keep them in school. He's spoken to students and teachers who have finished a Detroit-to-Lansing march to protest what they say are unnecessary suspensions and expulsions for minor offenses.

LEAVITT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in western Michigan have a roundup on their hands. They say as many as 20 cattle got through a break in a fence at a farm in Oceana County's Leavitt Township, about 25 miles southeast of Ludington.
