Lansing State Journal Saturday, March 8, 1997 3B COPS AND COURTS Capitol Report State risks loss of welfare help Michigan well below Work-hour standards for two-parent families Associated Press -DETROIT Linda and Ibb Shakhan of Detroit are part of the reason Michigan risks losing about $33 million in federal welfare subsidies next year. The Detroit couple have three children and are on welfare, but both are working. Yet they don't meet new federal requirements that say one parent in a two-parent family must work or join in a work program at least 35 hours a week while on welfare. .., Linda Shakhan, 36, puts in about 25 hours a week cleaning buildings for a private company. Ibb Shakhan, 38, worked at a pizzeria but had to quit because heat from the ovens aggravated his high blood pressure, his wife said. ' At least 60 percent of Michigan welfare families must meet the work requirement this summer. The state otherwise will lose 5 percent of its next federal welfare grant, or about $33 million. ; v As of November, when the most recent numbers became available, Under the dome Here is a daily look at activities of the Legislature and state government. If you've got ideas for stories, call Chris Andrews at 377-1054 or Greg J Borowski at 377-1 157. the state wasn't even close to the federal target. "Our preliminary estimate was 5 percent of participants were working 35 hours. Even if the actual number is double that, it's still not very good," said Jim Tobin, Michigan Jobs Commission spokesman. "We don't disagree with the concept," Tobin said. The number of two-parent families on welfare is relatively small. As of January, 16,521 of Michigan's 155,558 households receiving Temporary Assistance to Needy Families payments had two parents.

They could not be reached.for comment Friday. The tires have been accumulating since at least the late 1980s, said Nadine Deak, a state inspector in Allegan County, which is south of Grand Rapids along Lake Michigan. Haulers such as the Lyonses are paid by tire dealers and service sta- tions to take away old tires. Used tires can go to certain landfills or they can be cut up for other uses, such as fuel. In the case of the Allegan County tires, sitting unprotected outdoors, there are several risks. "They hold a great deal of water, and mosquitoes eat up water quite nicely," Deak said. "It's an excellent breeding ground. There are certain breeds that can carry" serious diseases. "There's also the potential for fire," she added. "Runoff from fire can cause ground-water contamination because tires contain a petroleum product." And any fire would likely close U.S. 131 for several days because the tires are near the highway, Deak said. Divers to search river for body Police continue to scope Grand River for Mason man last seen on Feb. 2 Lansing State Journal LANSING A dive team from the Ingham County Sheriffs Department will search the Grand River today for a 25-year-old Mason man missing since Feb. 2. A duffel bag belonging to Franklin Gottschalk was found on the river bank, between West Saginaw and Shiawassee streets, about the time he disappeared, said Ingham County Sheriff Detective Donna Townshend. On Friday, sheriffs officials used a Michigan State Police dog trained to find cadavers to search the river. "We wanted to come out with the dog to see if he could get an alert," said Detective Brian Valentine. "The dog wasn't available until today." Valentine said the dog, named Jack, indicated areas of the river that police should search further. Jack's handler, Kris McPhall of the state police Houghton Lake post, said the dog sometimes tries to jump in the water, put its head in it or whine when there is something suspicious. McPhall said the 6'2-year-old dog, was trained to find bodies in water and underground. Valentine said a dive team would continue the search today at 1 1 a.m. in the eight-foot deep river. East Lansing City offers reward: City officials will pay $2,500 to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the person or people who destroyed a 4-year-old sculpture, they said Friday.

The reward is being offered by the East Lansing Downtown Development Authority, the city's Art Commission and Crime Stoppers.
