Glen Tolksdorf President

A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce Members, We all know how fortunate we are to live and do business here in the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula! The Keweenaw is home to a thriving and diverse business community and the Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce (KCC) is here to support and develop our local businesses in a variety of ways. The KCC Visitor’s Center is located in the William J. Hodge building by Franklin Square at the entrance to downtown Houghton. The KCC thanks the City of Houghton for the recent updates to the facility, including new information and brochure displays, an array of maps, and pictures of local businesses. Additional “Welcome” and “Open” signs will also be added soon. Make sure to drop off your business brochures to be added to the display! Over the last two years, the KCC’s Board of Directors has met weekly in the absence of an Executive Director. Due to our Board members’ hard work, KCC membership has increased, revenues are up, and the budget is in place to hire a new Executive Director. The position is expected to be filled by May of this year. The most commonly asked question of the Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce is, “Why should I be a member?” The answer, in a nutshell, is that a strong Chamber of Commerce membership makes for a stronger local economy. The KCC supports, attracts,

and develops businesses through a variety of resources and events, including: the Visitor’s Center, where we share information with visitors who stop by in person and with outside interests that want to know more about our area via phone or email; Eggs & Issues morning events, with speakers and discussions on topics of interest; Business After Hours, providing opportunities to host informal gatherings at member businesses and network with other members; member workshop support services where experts share valuable management data and skills; golf outings; the website at; a monthly newsletter; and many other activities.

Feel free to contact us at (906) 482-5240, by email at, or stop by the Visitor’s Center. Thank you for your support and we look forward to growing together! Sincerely,

Glen Tolksdorf, President Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce

Keweenaw Cash Offers Variety, Flexability In recent years, the popularity of gift cards and gift certificates has continued to grow. But, despite their popularity, there are some drawbacks. One being that, single-business gift cards are limited to the business from which they were issued. The Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce's Keweenaw Cash is an exciting alternative to gift cards with virtually all of the advantages and none of the restrictions. As the name implies, Keweenaw Cash can be used as cash at the more than 500 participating members of the Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce. Trina Barrette, Office Manager at the Chamber, said for consumers, Keweenaw Cash makes life a lot easier. “Many people struggle when it comes to gift giving,” she said. “Keweenaw Cash takes away a lot of guess work for the giver and gives the recipient a lot of options.” What sets Keweenaw Cash apart from traditional gift certificates or the newer gift cards is the fact their use isn’t limited to a single business. Barrette said the uses of Keweenaw Cash have expanded far beyond the traditional gift certificate. “People have used them to pay their utility bills or make an insurance payment,” she said. “They’ve even used Keweenaw Cash at local hospitals and doctor’s offices.” Another example of the flexibility of Keweenaw Cash is that they can be purchased in any denomination the consumer needs. “We print them here,” Barrette said, “So we can make any amount no matter how large or how small.” “If someone wants to give a hundred dollars or more, we suggest printing the Keweenaw Cash in smaller denominations. This allows the recipient more flexibility and enables them to use the certificates at several businesses.” Barrette said that not only is Keweenaw Cash accepted by most local businesses, it is the business community itself that is the

biggest user of the program. “Employers such as Portage Health, Aspirus, GS Engineering, and Midwest Loans use Keweenaw Cash quite often,” she said. “They’ve been used as Christmas Bonuses, prizes in silent auctions and other fund raising events, and for employee incentives and awards.” She said Keweenaw Cash is also used as retirement gifts, to mark a milestone, or as part of a welcome package for new hires. While Keweenaw Cash is available from the Chamber all year long, Barrette said there is a noticeable increase around the holidays. “It really is a perfect gift that can be used as cash throughout the Keweenaw.” Barrette said the certificates come in envelopes with a list of all the participating businesses to make it easy for the recipient. To find out more about Keweenaw Cash visit the Chamber office at 902 College Ave. in Houghton, call 906-482-5240, or visit their website:

OUGHTON — For one week in June of 2013, Finns, Finnish-Americans, and even those who just wanted to celebrate Finnish culture flocked to the Copper Country for FinnFest USA 2013. The event was a logistical challange with both indoor and outdoor venues spread throughout the area. The success of the event was rewarded as the 2013 FinnFest team was named Person/Project of the Year for the Keweenaw Chamber of Commerce annual Spark Plug Awards, presented at a special banquet February 14, 2014. The awards, which recognize leaders in the Keweenaw, are a joint effort of the Chamber, Keweenaw Economic Development Alliance, MTEC SmartZone, and, added as a partner this year, Keweenaw Young Professionals. "I was very honored," said Susie Landers, Managing Director of FinnFest. "However, I feel that the award should be going to the Board, all the committees, and the entire community because they really stepped up for this event. The support was amazing. This


community has raised the bar for any future FinnFest. It was a very rewarding experience for me, and I'm looking forward to the next time." Other awards went to: Jessie Brassard - Young Professional of the Year MTEC SmartZone, Smart Start Program - Growth Calumet Electronics - Quality Glenn Simula, GS Engineering - Innovation Pettibone - Teamwork Portage Health - Transformation Jon Haeussler - Hancock Sesquicentennial Chair - Community Development Event organizer, Karyn Olsson, called the evening the most popular business networking function of the year. "It's businesses celebrating other great businesses in the community," she said. At the end of the program, organizers recognized the turnover among the business community's leadership with four retiring notables receiving the "Exhaust Award": former Houghton City Manager Scott MacInnes; Copper Country Intermediate School District Superintendent, Dennis Harbour; Keweenaw Economic Development Alliance Executive Director, Phil Musser; and Bonnie Holland, Executive Director for Finlandia University's Jutila Center for Global Design and Business. Les Cook, Vice President for Student Affairs and Advancement at Michigan Technological University, presented them each with the award, an oversized plaque with a rusty exhaust pipe. "It ended the evening on a very humorous and fun note," Olsson said.

Aspirus Keweenaw Expands Services OUGHTON - Officials with Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital saw a need for expanding their services in the Keweenaw. As part of a plan to accomplish that goal, they started construction on a new clinic in Houghton in the fall of 2013. During an official groundbreaking ceremony at the site between Walmart and the Country Inn & Suites, representatives of Aspirus Keweenaw, a Wausau, WI-based Aspirus Network, City of Houghton officials, representatives of Neenah, WI-based Miron Construction Company and about 50 invited guests heard details of the plan for the facility. Before the ceremony began, Chuck needs made necessary by the Affordable Care Act in mind, Nelson, Aspirus Keweenaw CEO; Rick Nevers, Aspirus Vice Nelson said, adding that, “This facility is being designed with President for Marketing and Planning based in Wausau, WI; some flexibility.” and Steve Tyink, Vice President of Business Innovation with Nevers said construction of the new clinic shows the comMiron Construction talked about the new Houghton clinic. mitment Aspirus has to the Upper Peninsula.

Renovations to Start in Spring ANCOCK — Renovation work on the former Hancock Middle School paused for most of the winter months, but it’s expected to pick up again in the spring, according to Curt Hahka. Hahka, who is Finlandia University’s Director of Facilities, said a new fire warning system, which includes strobe lights, alarms, and emergency lighting, is completed in the building. “It’s up to fire code now,” Hahka said. In 2009, Finlandia received the building, which opened in 1923 as Hancock Central High School and the former Condon Field, now MacAfee Field, in exchange for providing Hancock Central High School graduates who qualify to attend the University with tuition remission. The building will eventually house classrooms for the University’s College of Health Sciences. “We’re into this for about half a million (dollars) so far,” he said. OHM Architects, Engineers and Planners in Hancock is doing the engineering for the renovations of the building. It’s hoped work can begin on the classrooms on the third and fourth floors in the spring, Hahka said, depending on when funding can be found for the work. “We’ve been hitting a little bit of this at a time,” he said. “We’re looking at getting the rooms up to par.” New carpeting and new windows are planned for the third and fourth floor classrooms, Hahka said. Besides the fire warning system, the building’s roof was recently re-covered with a fire resistant material. New seats were installed in 2012 in the second-floor auditorium, and more seating is planned. It’s uncertain what, if anything, will be done to the gymnasium, also on the second floor. There is a small kitchen next to the gym. The auditorium, gym, and kitchen can all eventually be used for community events. There could possibly be a storefront on the second floor, as well. Hahka said Finlandia President Philip Johnson would like the partial coverings currently on the building’s windows removed to provide a full view from inside the building. “We’re looking at doing whatever it takes to make (the facade) fit its era,” he said. On the third and fourth floors, Hahka said there will be separate, stand-alone heating systems. “We’re looking at upgrading from steam to a hot water system,” he said.


It was hoped classes would have started already in the building, but Hahka said work is slowed by lack of funding. “We wanted to be farther along than we are,” he said. Fredi DeYampert, Finlandia Vice President for Academic Affairs, said the plan is to move classes from the main campus gradually. The Physical Therapist Assistant and Medical Assistant programs would move first and the Nursing program would be last. There will be small, medium, and large-sized classrooms to fit the needs of particular classes. When the move will start isn’t certain, however, DeYampert said. “It’s unknown at this time,” she said.

A Venture for Portage ANCOCK — A process which began more than two years ago has been finalized and now a joint venture between Portage Health and for-profit Tennessee-based Life Point Hospitals is in effect. In January 2012, President and CEO Jim Bogan and the Portage Health Board of Directors began the process to find another health care system to partner with to help with capital improvements and provide financial support needed for the changes, which would be brought about by the implementation of the Federal Affordable Care Act. Also, the hospital was financially sound at the time and could negotiate from a position of strength. Eventually, four systems were chosen as possible partners. That was trimmed to two candidates and finally LifePoint was chosen as the best fit for Portage Health. Bogan said he’s very pleased the joint venture with LifePoint is completed. “This is a happy day,” he said, at the time. The joint venture had to be approved by the office of Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette and Bogan said that was done Nov. 27, 2013. Bogan said the joint venture is going to benefit not only Portage Health, but the community it serves as well. “It’s going to provide the opportunity to excel and make even better the services we offer the community,” he said. “With the partnership with LifePoint, Bogan said,” Portage Health will be able to recruit more physicians and expand care, particularly in urology, cardiology, and behavioral health which will be a new service for the health care system.” The agreement includes $60 million in capital investments from LifePoint and Portage Health over the next 10 years. LifePoint will provide $48 million and Portage Health will provide $12 million. Bogan said LifePoint was chosen in part because its ideals are the same as those held by Portage Health, including commitment to preserve jobs, dedication to a collaborative relationship with the medical staff, dedication to quality of care and service to patients, and the importance of local governance. Although the partnership is 80/20, governance will be 50/50. LifePoint will eliminate Portage Health’s long-term debt, also, Bogan said. The agreement included a major investment in a new, locally-governed charitable foundation, which Bogan said will replace the former Portage Health Foundation. Its Board members have been


seated and its effects will be felt immediately. The Foundation will hold the hospital’s 20 percent interest in the joint venture, will be involved with assuring compliance with the agreement, and will accept contributions and distribution of earnings to support community needs. The Portage Health Foundation Board of Directors announced recently it has received an initial deposit of approximately $32 million dollars and has named Kevin Store of Houghton as the Executive Director of the reconstituted Portage Health Foundation. “We are very pleased to begin moving forward with the Foundation,” said Lennon Mattila Hughes, Chairperson of the Foundation’s Board of Directors. “We have a lot of work ahead of us as we begin to reorganize the Foundation and prepare for it to reinvest into our community.” Hughes said that the Foundation is moving forward with caution and is taking appropriate steps to ensure the assets will be managed properly, as the Foundation has potential capitalcall responsibilities as the 20 percent minority owner of the recent joint venture. “The Foundation will have limitations as to how much it will be able to invest in the community and those parameters have yet to be determined.” Hughes added. LifePoint Hospitals operates 60 hospital campuses in 20 states. The company headquarters is in Brentwood, Tenn. Its website is Other than banners at the various Portage Health sites in Hancock, Houghton and Lake Linden, Bogan said there will be no physical change to any of the buildings. “Business will continue to be Portage Health,” he said. 13

“We’re building a lot of services in one convenient location,” he said. “We need to expand. We’re growing.” Dan Dahlquist, President of the Aspirus Keweenaw Board of Directors, said the board is very supportive of the new clinic. “We’re very excited about this opportunity,” he said. “It’s been a long time coming.” Scott MacInnes, who was Houghton’s City Manager at the time, said at the ceremony that members of the city council wanted a first-rate medical facility in the city, which they think is needed to attract people to and keep them in the area. David Voss, President and CEO of Miron Construction, said the company has been working with Aspirus for years. “We really think this building will be a showcase,” he said. Jerry Luoma, Aspirus Keweenaw Medical Director, said the

new clinic will greatly benefit patients. “This is all about improving the way patients get health care,” he said. Dave Nelson, Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital Upper Peninsula Marketing Lead, said on March 11, the clinic is expected to be operational in late May. “Construction of Aspirus Houghton Clinic is 100 percent on track with the official opening scheduled for early June,” Nelson said. “Most of of the basic clinic functions are targeted to start up at the end of May followed by the comprehensive services bundle to be fully operational by June 6. A cross-functional team of doctors, nurses, and clinic administrators have been intimately engaged with Miron Construction and other local contractors with excellent results so far.”

Michigan public universities have $23.9 billion “economic footprint” KEY


ANSING — Michigan’s 15 public universities are key employers and economic drivers in the state, responsible for more than 120,000 jobs and with spending and earnings accounting for $23.9 billion in economic activity, according to a report from the Anderson Economic Group commissioned by the Presidents Council, State Universities of Michigan. The universities collectively supported more than $12 billion in earnings in Michigan in 2012, according to the report. The 1.3 million alumni living in the state earned $47 billion in wages and salaries in 2012, the report says. With more than 300,000 students, Michigan ranks 6th among the states in public university enrollment, despite being 9th in population. Enrollment grew 5 percent 2003 to 2012, despite a shrinking state population and major cuts in state support per student. Annual degree completions increased even faster, by 13 percent – 16 percent for bachelor degree completion. “This report shows our universities are important contributors to jobs and prosperity in our state,” said Glenn D. Mroz, President of Michigan Technological University and Chairman of PSCUM. “Whether it’s the salaries earned by professors, our investment in new buildings needed to keep up with student demand, or the earnings of our graduates, it’s clear that public universities are vital to every one of Michigan’s 83 counties.” The study showed that Michigan Tech’s payroll alone pumped




$145.4 million into the economy in 2012, 97 percent of it spent in Michigan. Michigan Tech is the largest employer in the Keweenaw with nearly 1,400 employees. Portage Health is second, employing 800. The report showed an additional $86.6 million in non-payroll spending, including support for research, instruction and academic support, student services, facilities operation, athletics, and construction. Student spending—including room and board, off-campus rent and food, books, supplies and clothing, and off-campus entertainment—accounted for another $102.2 million in spending in 2012. “Michigan Tech is a key economic driver in its community and for Michigan, as are the other state universities,” Mroz said. “This report shows our universities are important contributors to jobs and prosperity in our State,” said Mroz at a news conference in Lansing. The Presidents’ Council, State Universities of Michigan commissioned AEG to do the study and produce the report. Highlights of the report can be found at Michael Boulus, Executive Director of the Council, said the report, which has county-by-county detail of enrollment, spending, and alumni residency shows that Michigan universities drive local economies in many ways.

The Copper Country’s Vibrant Downtowns

Downtown Houghton HOUGHTON — Connected by the Portage Lake Lift Bridge and more than 150 years of history, Houghton and Hancock offer delights of many kinds for visitors. Houghton and Hancock will be collaborating on an event linking the two cities on the first weekend in August, said Susie Landers, Director of Business Development for Downtown Houghton. While details are still being fleshed out, Landers said the tentative theme is “Fun on the Canal,” with vendors along the Houghton and Hancock waterfront and water races. “I feel we need to start working together for both of our downtowns to become stronger,” she said. “Collaboration in the community is always key.” The first weekend in August, not coincidentally, is also when Michigan Technological University alumni come back to visit.



After working closely with Winter Carnival and the Women in Engineering convention, Landers said the event should provide excitement and activities for returning graduates — which in turn might inspire even more follow-up trips. “That’s another reason we want to do it then, to highlight our community in the hopes that people will come back in different times when they see all the things you can do,” Landers said. “We’ve got options on the water, trails, biking, so many things. This is a great opportunity to highlight our community to our visitors.” People who want to get involved with the event can contact Landers at 370-3110 or Mary Kaminski of the Hancock Downtown Business Association at 482-2422. Houghton is the largest city in the Copper Country on the Keweenaw Peninsula and is the county seat of Houghton County. Houghton was named after Dou-

glass Houghton, an American geologist and physician renowned for his exploration of the Keweenaw Peninsula. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 7,708. It has been listed as one of the “100 Best Small Towns in America.” The City of Houghton is home to Michigan Technological University, Portage Lake Golf Course, Dee Stadium, the Nara Nature Trails, Carnegie Museum, Kestner Waterfront Park, West Houghton Neighborhood Park, East Houghton Waterfront Park, and a lakefront hiking trail. It also has a vibrant downtown of shops, restaurants, and venues featuring live music and entertainment. The West Houghton Park, has an outdoor ice rink and lawn tennis courts. Along Portage Lake is the Raymond Kestner Waterfront Recreation Area, the principal feature is a large “Chutes and Ladders” playground. It also includes Houghton Beach. Along the waterfront, in the area that used to be occupied by the railroad tracks, runs the flat, paved Waterfront Trail for bikers and pedestrians. At one end of this trail is the Houghton RV Park

and at the other end the Nara Nature Park. Midway along this corridor is Mattila Square. Princess Point is also along this trail. Veterans Park is just across from the Portage Lake Lift Bridge from Hancock and contains the memorial to the Houghton Company, which fought in the Civil War. Houghton is the headquarters for Isle Royale National Park. The Portage Lake Lift Bridge connects Houghton and Hancock, by crossing over Portage Lake, which is part of the river and canal system that crosses the entire peninsula. The Portage Lake Lift Bridge is the world’s heaviest and widest double-decked vertical lift bridge. Its center span lifts to provide 100 feet of clearance for ships. Since rail traffic was discontinued in the Keweenaw, the lower deck is used to accommodate snowmobile traffic in the winter. This is the only land based link between the north and south section of the Keweenaw Peninsula, and is crucial. Hancock is the northernmost city in Michigan. The population as of the 2010 census was 4,634. It is the sister city of Porvoo, Finland. The city was named after John Hancock. Points of interest include the Community Arts Center, featuring a large gallery and studios on Quincy Street. Also on Quincy Street are Finlandia University, the Finnish American Heritage Center and North Wind Books all

Downtown Hancock in one convenient complex. Finlandia University, is the only Finnish college in the United States and the only private college in the Upper Peninsula. Begun in 1896 as Suomi College, the school became a fouryear university in 1996. Enrollment has increased in recent years to almost 600. The Finnish American Heritage Center houses changing exhibits of Finnish, Finnish-American, and regional artists and other subjects related to that culture. An extensive archive in the lower level serves anyone interested in Finnish-American roots. Located next to the Finnish American Heritage Center is North Wind Books, now owned by Finlandia University. The store has select general reading and children’s books in addition to its regional specialties: Finnish and Finnish-American books, history and literature of the Upper Great Lakes and Upper Peninsula, including maritime, Native American, copper

mining, nature, and the environment. Additional attractions in Hancock include the Keweenaw Coop Natural Foods & Groceries, Temple Jacob, McLean State Park, Mont Ripley Ski Hill (owned and operated by Michigan Technological University), Porvoo Park on the waterfront, and the Hancock Recreation Area, featuring 28 acres of beach and campground, and the Quincy Mine Hoist Association. A short drive north from Hancock are the communities of Calumet and Laurium. Although each has a relatively small downtown in terms of geographical size, there are no shortages of shops, restaurants, and recreational activities. Laurium features fine dining, a bowling alley, two venues for live music, antique shops, a craft shop, full service building supply, a family medical clinic, Michigan's northern-most hospital, and much more.

Downtown Calumet is a delight for both visitors and residents alike, abounding with gift shops, antique stores, and specialty stores such as art galleries and copper gifts. Like Laurium, Calumet offers great dining, an abundant night life, and fascinating historical sites! Downtown Calumet is the focal point of the Keweenaw National Historic Park. The former Union Building has been transformed into an ultra modern Visitor's Center which tells the story of the copper mining heritage of the Keweenaw. In addition to the plentiful retail opportunities, both communities are alive with one festival or activity after another. Largely through the efforts of awardwinning Mainstreet Calumet, the Village hosts the start and finish of the CopperDog 150 sled dog race, fast becoming one of the premiere races in the Midwest, Pasty Fest, Heritage Days, First Friday art events, Great Bear Chase Ski Marathon, and more. Laurium's Lazy Days of Laurium has positioned itself as a "mustdo" summer event. The fun doesn't stop in the winter as the Swedetown Hill

and ski trails, Calumet Colloseum, and Gipp Arena provide ample sledding, skiing, hockey and skating for all levels of expertise. For more than a hundred years, the Calumet Theatre has been and continues to be a venue for world-class entertainers as well as school and community stage productions and concerts. Perhaps the most unique downtown you’ll find is at the very tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula, in Copper Harbor. As the name implies, the community was once an important copper shipping port. Today, visitors from throughout the country flock to take advantage of recreation, relaxation, and shopping. The area abounds with hiking, world class moutain biking, ATV, cross country skiing, and snowmobile trails, boating, complete with dramatic views of Lake Superior, Lake Fanny Hooe, and more. Copper Harbor is the home of Fort Wilkins Historic State Park and the gateway to Isle Royale National Park via the Isle Royale Continued on Page 20

Downtown Calumet 17

Eagle Harbor Continued from Page 17 Queen Ferry. Natural beauties such as the Estivant Pines, Manganese Falls, Hunter’s Point, and more offer great vacation and recreation activities. The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, golf course, and recreational facilities were built during the Great Depression as a Civil Works Administration project and are still alive and vibrant

Copper Harbor

today. While it may be small, Copper Harbor’s downtown is a truly one-of-a-kind shopping experience with more than two dozen stores and shops offering unique gifts. The area’s restuarants feature some of the finest dining in the region and lodging options range from the basic to the sublime. Overseeing activities is the Copper Habor Improvement As-

sociation, a volunteer group founded in 1971. Not only does CHIA work to promote the business climate in the Harbor area, they sponsor activities designed to keep the community alive and vibrant year round. Winter activities include holiday tree lighting, an ice fishing tournament, antique snowmobile run, cross country skiing, Mount Boheimia ski hill,

and of course the northern stop of the CopperDog 150 sled dog race. In the spring and summer you’ll find birdwatching activities, golf and fishing tournaments, motorcycle rallies, and a July 4 parade and fireworks display that is the envy of much larger communities.

Today many people who do not have celiac disease are following a gluten-free diet. They may suffer from a gastrointestinal problem. A gluten-free diet avoids all foods containing wheat, barley and rye. Econo Foods has responded to this need for gluten-free by expanding the â&#x20AC;&#x153;natural & organicâ&#x20AC;? department to present a wide selection of gluten-free foods, including large refrigerated and frozen sections.
