Anderson told friends and family of the last time he bought his mother flowers. It was a couple weeks ago when he stopped in a Hastings grocery store during a drive back to Battle Creek.
The family knew they were in the final days. A woman in line commented on the flowers, and Anderson told her about his mother. As he tried to swipe his card, the woman moved him out of the way and paid for them. "'Go see your mama,'" he recalled her saying.

Walking out of the store, Anderson realized that the woman was the kind of person his mother was.
Kain came from a tough upbringing, eventually building a business, having four sons and employing many through the years. Anderson said she could have landed anywhere, receiving job offers back in Denver and elsewhere.
She decided to stay in Battle Creek.
"But you know why she did? You guys," Anderson told the crowd. "She lived for you. She loved you. We could say Mama ran a restaurant business, but she really ran a people business."

Kain had four sons: Ken Anderson, who preceded her in death; Scott Anderson; Tom Anderson; and Newt Callahan. She also had dozens of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Callahan will continue to run the business, which has operated for nearly 50 years.

Sophomore guard Chamera Young scored a team-high 13 points, guards Quaye DeGraffenreid, Joy Hastings and Alandria Terrell combined for 19 more and forward Nasha Flowers added six big points and six boards to complement Bell’s 11 points and six rebounds.
“The last few games we’ve had other kids step up for us,” McKinley head coach Pam Davis said after her team won its fourth straight to improve to 13-2 overall, 8-2 in the league. “That makes us a little bit more difficult to defend, even though I feel Kierstan is the best player around and everything has to go through her.
“But it’s very nice when we can get double figures like Chamera had today. She came up huge for us.”
Young hit three 3-pointers, drove the baseline for a score and converted a fastbreak for her 13. Her back-to-back 3s in the second quarter broke ties at 16 and 19, and McKinley never trailed after the second.
Second-quarter baskets by Bell, Terrell and Hastings encouraged Young, she said.
“They get into it; I get more confident,” said Young. “I just try and help my team.”
Bell took the lead first, and her team followed. She had seven of her team’s first nine points, and Hoover never led in the game. But Bell had only four points the rest of the game as the Vikings’ Alexis Green and Tiffany Bentler played her tough in holding her to her season-low total.
That meant McKinley needed its guards to convert both their own shots and their fastbreak and transition chances. And they did, as t... http://www.cantonrep.com/article/20160123/SPORTS/160129646
