FRASER — About five years ago, David Winowiecki received a phone call in the middle of the night that became a nightmare.

Someone dropped off his stepson at a local hospital after the young man overdosed on prescription pills and alcohol at a “pharm party.”

“(Kids) bring a handful of pills they throw in a bowl, mix it up and wash it down with alcohol,” Winowiecki said.

After receiving the news, Winowiecki woke up his wife, Debby, and they raced to the hospital where their son had turned “blue” and was revived.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Everything worth having comes at a sacrifice.

That’s a lesson Clinton Township residents Josh Garrison, 31, and Jacquelyn Monastero, 28, have been living for the past 10 years.

In January, their story captured national attention when they were named as one of five finalists for a Hawaii wedding giveaway from the ABC morning talk show “Live! With Kelly.” It was too fitting an opportunity to pass up, considering they met 10 years ago on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — With the installment of a new gate system at the township’s dog park, township workers will have a more active log of the canines accessing the park.

Township Parks and Recreation Director Linda Walter said the gate system upgrade, which uses plastic key fobs in place of key cards to enter the dog park, will allow them to track in real time who accessed the park. More than 560 people have passes to the park, which is located behind the Clinton Township Adult Senior Life Center on Romeo Plank Road.

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Whatever their stories or reason for coming, the men who attend a once-a-week parenting workshop have at least one thing in common.

They’re all trying to grow as fathers.

By the time the workshop, aimed at helping men build healthy relationships with their children, begins at 7 p.m., the Macomb Intermediate School District building is all but empty for the night. But in a back room of the building’s second-floor library, the men convene around a table for two hours every Thursday for 14 weeks.

FRASER — As 9-year-old Jadan Vizino and 8-year-old Jacob Flachsmann shuffled around the boxing ring, exchanging jabs, it was clear that the pair weren’t mad, but rather were focused.

The punches don’t hurt, Flachsmann said later. Once you’ve boxed a few times, you get used to them.

“It’s real fun,” he added. “You have to be real fast. You have to move a lot.”

FRASER — Being without grapplers in the 140- and 145-pound weight classes early in the season isn’t killing the confidence of members of Fraser High School’s wrestling team.

Until the Ramblers can fill those holes, which coach Ed Skowneski says the staff is working on, Fraser will essentially be down 12 points before it hits the mat for its matches.

FRASER — It started with tragic news.

Susan Bertolini-Fox’s mother, Irene Bertolini, had breast cancer.

But she wasn’t done living yet. Feeling inspired by a pottery display at Greenfield Village, the mother-daughter duo signed up for a pottery class together at Oakland Community College.

“She was a very positive woman and wanted to do something new,” Bertolini-Fox recalled of her mother, who overcame her diagnosis to live another 12 years before passing away in 1995. But pottery, it turned out, had a much longer impact.

FRASER — For Fred and Donna Kostrick, work is their lifeblood.

“When you keep busy, it keeps you young,” said Donna, who is 80 years old.

This is the motto of arguably two of the hardest working people in Fraser. Even though the couple technically retired in 2001 after working together for 42 years as gas and water meter installers, they never really did.

“When we retired, we just couldn’t sit around,” said Fred, who is 86 years old. “It started as a hobby, kept growing. Now the whole family is involved.”

Picture a typical senior residence and images of bingo, arts and crafts, and green Jell-O might come to mind.

Walk into a modern retirement community, though, and you may be more likely to see seniors playing video games, heading out with a travel group or performing a sun salutation in yoga class.

Today’s senior living communities are not the stale, dreary places stereotypes make them out to be.
