CORRECTION – In the Sept. 3 issue of the Tri-County Citizen Primerica Financial Services was incorrectly identified as an investment firm. It should have been identified as a financial services firm. We apologize for the error.

CORRECTION – In the Sept. issue of the Tri-County Citizen Lisa Greenfelder was attributed to a comment saying she was not in favor of starting before Labor Day. Greenfelder said, “I have never said I do not want to start before Labor Day, in fact I repeatedly have told friends and family and community members that as a sports parent, it would be more convenient for my family to start before Labor Day. If the community was polled, I believe the response would be 50/50 with parents. Because not all parents have athletes, they may not enjoy an earlier start date.” We apologize for the error.

WEDDING BALL – During the Sept. 5 meeting of the Chesaning Village Council, village administrator Troy Feltman presented a request to the board regarding a wedding at Showboat Park. The request was for the use of the park near the front softball field. And while the wedding would not be using the ball field, they did not want the ball field in use during the wedding. After discussion, the board agreed the group could either rent the ball field to guarantee exclusivity, or take the chance that someone else wouldn’t.

GRAVES MOVED – During the Sept. 7 meeting of the Chesaning Township Board, supervisor Bob Corrin thanked trustee Bill Hedrich and clerk Fran Kukulis for doing what was needed to move 33 graves at Wildwood Cemetery. The graves were previously located on the edge of the deteriorating riverbank along the Shiawassee River. The graves were moved to a new area in the same section of Wildwood on Sharon Road. The headstones were moved, each set on new foundations. Hedrich thanked contractors Bill and Joe Zelinko, as well as Elaine. Funeral Director Doug Misiuk provided his services at no charge to the township. Trustee Pete Hemgesberg said it was quite an undertaking, but they were very respectful. The graves moved were all from the early to late 1800s. The township went through all the necessary channels to gain a court approval to move the graves.

ROAD WORK – During the Sept. 7 meeting of the Chesaning Township Board, supervisor Bob Corrin reported many of the summer’s road projects have been completed. He said the Gasper Road bridge looks good. The Corunna/State Road project has been completed, upgrading that portion of the road to all-weather.
