Otsego gets a taste of authentic Mexican fare with the opening of the Casa Real Mexican Restaurant

Otsego city officials celebrated the opening of the Casa Real Restaurant with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Officials are pictured here with restaurant staff and owner Luciana Ortiz, cutting the ceremonial ribbon.

Thursday, April 19th, 2012 Otsego city officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Casa Real restaurant that opened on February 5th. The restaurant is owned by a brother and sister team, Juan Carlos and Luciana Ortiz, who both moved here from Kalamazoo to start their own restaurant. The two are originally from Degollado, Jalisco in Mexico. They moved to Kalamazoo from Texas in March of 2011. Both now reside in Otsego. Most of the staff are family members or close family friends who have also moved to the Otsego area. Juan Carlos has worked in all areas of the food industry. For the last 4 years he worked in Somerset, Kentucky and most recently at Los Amigos in Portage & Kalamazoo. Juan and Luciana wanted to open their own restaurant showcasing their own authentic Mexican fare. They began looking at locations in smaller towns. Otsego was their choice of location for the restaurant they’ve

named “Casa Real.” The restaurant is located at 232 W. Allegan Street in Otsego. When you enter the restaurant, you won’t find any evidence that the building once housed a laundromat. The beautifully remodeled building has a real Mexican atmosphere with its well planned design and bright artwork. But the real treat is the authentic Mexican food. Authentic dishes such as Carnitas, Enchiladas Rancheras, Coctel de Camaron (a shrimp cocktail dish) and much more. Everything Casa Real serves is made fresh every day. The restaurant will soon serve drinks along with Mexican beers and margaritas when they are granted their license to do so. Stop in and try one of their delicious dishes and welcome this new business to the area. The restaurant is open Sunday thru Thursday from 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. If you have any questions or would like to order food to take home, you can call the restaurant at (269) 692-6339.

Wanted: Old Cell Phones My name is Karen McGuire, the daughter of Jimmy & Kumi McGuire and I'm a 7th grader at Woodrow Wilson Middle School. Recently, I was accepted into a program called People to People. This summer, I will be taking a trip to England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales to learn about their cultures and what it takes to become a student ambassador.

Saturday, May 19th ––9am-3pm–– First Congregational Church of Otsego Sale held in the church parking lot 120 West Morrell St. Proceeds assist Ryan & Trisha Howrigon with adopting 2 children.

I need to raise funds for my tuition on this trip. One of the ways is recycling old, used or even broken cell phones. I am working with a company called PhoneRaiser in Texas. I send them the cell phones; they refurbish them and send them to third-world countries or people in the army. I found out through this program that 1 phone can contaminate up to 39,000 gallons of water if disposed of in a normal landfill, and that currently only 4% of the cell phones get recycled.

We Love You!

Faith &Hope “Judge Not” Matthew 7:1

Some years ago, I was in a group planning a community Baccalaureate service for high school graduates. One of the pastors said, “Of course the people of my denomination will be the only ones going to heaven.” We pounced on his remark by saying “You may be surprised!” We all do it. Sometimes consciously and other times unconsciously or unintentionally we judge others. Why do we do this? For one, we judge others to make ourselves look better. For another, we may judge others because we are jealous of them or we just plain do not like them. Most often we judge others because we do not know all the facts. We have heard the old sayings, “Do not judge me until you have walked a mile in my moccasins” and “There, but by the grace of God, go I.” To make things worse, Jesus adds “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged …” (Matthew 7:2). In judging others we bring judgment upon ourselves. “Why do you look for the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?”(Matthew 7:3). How do we overcome this problem? Here is how we pray the Lord’s Prayer in our church, “Forgive our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us.” The following poem comes from an unknown source: “I dreamed Death came the other night and Heaven’s gate swung wide – With kindly grace an Angel came and ushered me inside – And there to my astonishment stood folks I’d known on Earth – Some I’d judged and labeled “unfit” and “of little worth” – Words of indignation came to my lips but never were set free – For every face showed stunned surprise – No one expected me …” Prayer: Dear Lord, “Forgive my sins as I forgive those who have sinned against me.” In Jesus’ name. Amen. Peace to you and please join us for worship this Sunday in a church where Jesus’ love is lived.

LOOKING BACK....

Miles is a sturdy, noble-looking fellow. He has a special super power - his nose! He loves to sniff and snack. He is eventempered and has a gentle disposition. This amiable little hound has the strength of a truck when he is on the scent of something at the end of a leash, but then just as quickly, he can decide that the hunt is over and he will stroll easily beside you. Just add love, food and a moderate amount of exercise, and this merry little guy will be a great companion. Call or email anytime.

Remembering

Mike Mollitor June 14, 1954 - April 30, 2007

You may remember Mike as a brother, as a friend, or the guy who came running when you needed a hand. You may remember his music, his sense of humor, or his faithfulness as a friend. Mike gave a part of himself to everyone he knew. His faith in God and the way he bravely faced his illness continues to be an inspiration to many. So, when you meet someone who knew him, remember him together and know he's "dancing on clouds and walking with angels". Rhonda, Lisa, Michael & Family

The Family of Michael Leo "Mike" Welcher Would like to thank everyone for their loving support, phone calls, condolences and prayers during this time of our sudden loss. Thank you also for the many cards, flowers, dinners and memorials given in Mike's name. Special thanks to the Otsego Fire Department, Plainwell EMS, Borgess ER & CVL Staff, Plainwell Public Safety, and Winkel Funeral Home for their caring service. Thank you to our Friends and the Plainwell & Otsego United Methodist Women for the lovely luncheon, Jack Rose and the Scouts, Denny Stelzer for the "Welcher Chant," Mike's "Boys of Fall" and Rev. Dan Minor for the wonderful personal service for Mike. (It fit him to a "T"). Ransom Library Donations needed for May 19 book sale. Proceeds benefit library programs.
