School District Pool millage tax to go to voters in November
New tech to start showing up in school this fall
By KATE BASSETT Harbor Light Newspaper
When stepping inside the voting booth this November, community members will be asked to step up and help pay to keep the Harbor Springs pool open. Following a year of discussion, committee meetings, and opinion gathering, the Harbor Springs Board of Education has decided to put a six-year, 0.13 mill request on the ballot. The money garnered each year-an estimated $120,000-$130,000-will be put directly into a fund used only for the pool. “It will be used mostly for operations and staffing,” said superintendent Mark Tompkins. “We are hoping to expand our programming, and the goal is to have the pool reopened for the year before the election. That shouldn’t be a problem at all.” According to the district’s pool proposal document (which is available for viewing on the Harbor Springs Public Schools’ website, www.harborps.org), “in a typical year, the pool costs the district approximately $130,000 after revenues. This does not count the expense of -CONTINUED on page 10.
Lawsuit filed against school district By KATE BASSETT Harbor Light Newspaper
Former Harbor Springs elementary school principal Karey Scholten has filed a lawsuit against the school district, alleging a hostile work environment and wrongful removal from her position. Scholten was the principal of Blackbird and Shay Elementary Schools from 2005 until she was placed on medical leave during the last months of the 2010-2011 school year. Her contract with the school district did not expire until June 2012. She spent one school year in a central office position, focusing on curriculum for the Harbor Springs School District. As reported in the September 7, 2011 issue of the Harbor Light Newspaper, following a special Board of -CONTINUED on page 10.

Gow Litzenburger, owner of Litzenburger Landscape, drove down Main Street Thursday, August 9 after the Harbor Springs Car Festival in his recently renovated New York City taxi cab. The cab, a 1987 Chevy Caprice, is completely authentic even down to the functioning meter and retired medallion from the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission. The cab was restored by Litzenberger’s staff mechanics and restoration team. Litzenburger decided to purchase and restore the taxi after having two of his restored business trucks used in movies. Litzenburger says that even if the cab is not used in a movie, he is excited to have such an interesting commercial vehicle and he said it is something he has always wanted.

County Fair coming to town ‘greener’ By DANIELLE MCINTOSH Harbor Light Newspaper
The Emmet-Charlevoix County Fair has worked to make upgrades to the annual event that are mindful of not only local families, but also the environment. The fair will run August 21-26, featuring the Skerbeck Carnival, Grand Stand Events, 4-H Horse and Livestock Shows, the return of Hometown Idol and more. Fair Manager, Agnes Shaw, said that on top of trying to offer affordable “quality time” to families, the fair is also making an effort to preserve and honor natural resources. With a Green Fair Project Grant, as part of a Michigan soybean promotion, the fair will be awarded up to $5,000 matching dollars for soybean projects used to run the event. “It was not hard to come up with $9,000 worth of soybean products that we could use,” added Shaw.
Shaw explained the ink used to print fairbooks, and the paint used for all wood at the fair, are made of soy. Tractors and all diesel vehicles will be filled with biodiesel fuel this year. “The grant has really helped with
fair expenses as well,“ Shaw said. She noted the fair is a non-profit organization and benefits from admission costs and grants such as this one. Making upgrades this year will also benefit the horses. The 100-year old horse stalls in -CONTINUED on page 10.

Students in Harbor Springs will see evidence of the district’s new technology bond when they return to the classroom on September 5, as work began this summer on the schools’ five-year tech plan. “We spent the summer getting classrooms and wireless access up to speed,” said superintendent Mark Tompkins. He noted all elementary rooms now have new audio and video equipment. Teachers will also have new work stations. “All of our teachers, K-12, received iPads (tablet computers) this summer,” Tompkins added. “They have had time to play around and get to know these devices, and now they will undergo a two-day training to learn how to use instructional apps as teaching tools. There are so many possibilities, it is great.” Tompkins also said students will not be receiving their own iPads this year, even though many districts with dollars designated for technology give them to both instructors and learners at the same time. “Right now, we’re focusing on the adults. We want our teachers to really know how to use these devices, and to fully understand the advantages and disadvantages of using them as teaching tools in the classroom. We also want to make sure our wireless network can handle all the new usage, make sure our security controls are in place, etc. We want to do this slow and right. We are really excited to see our teachers learn and create new opportunities through technology.” Other projects the district started this summer included “tuck pointing” work on the bricks of the 1915 portion of the high school, as well as work on the pool. Tompkins said there have been problems with the pool’s roof leaking, despite it being replaced just last year, and the district is currently working with the roofing company to rectify the situation. The only major facility update currently underway is the high school locker room renovation project. While Tompkins said construction is going as planned, the locker rooms will likely not be complete until late September/early October.

Letters to the Editor Remembering a ‘local hero’ To the Editor: I am sad and I am sorry that most of the world did not have the chance to meet Mrs. Myrtle Johnston (obituary appeared in last week’s Harbor Light Newspaper). Those poor souls never had the opportunity to be cheered by her smile, warmed up by her hug, experience the love of life sparkling from her eyes, learn the meaning of a real work ethic by her example, feel the pure pride she held for her family and her home, be infected with her wonderful humor, or be nourished from her kitchen. I am sorry they did not get the chance to learn from her that one
should never judge strength by the size of the individual. It is too bad that so many never had the opportunity to learn about caring, compassion, trust, and generosity from Mert. She showed us how to be all those things to family, friends, and community without expecting or wanting anything in return. Locally, I am so sorry that so many will have to go without knowing the tastes of her breakfasts, lunches, pies, and her endless cup of coffee. It is very sad to know that future Harbor Springs Fire Fighters will not have a chance to get a hug from Mert at the annual Christmas gathering at the Legion, or share coffee in her restaurant after a fire; no matter the time. It is a crying shame that some day people will forget that she al-
lowed certain Harbor Springs people to carry a key to her restaurant so coffee could be shared at 5 a.m. seven days a week. It has been a while and it is simply too bad that high school yearbook ad people cannot sit down and talk to Mrs. Johnston about an ad in the yearbook. On the other hand I am glad. I am glad I was able to know Mert (Yes, she did tell me that her name was Mert). I am glad I can share my memories of one of my local heroes with others. I am glad that she left a bit of herself in her three daughters and her grandchildren. I am glad that the last time I saw this wonderful humanitarian we shared a hug, had a great, but too short, conversation, and left with a grin and a giggle. Our corner of the world has another void that just will not be filled. Tim Jardine Harbor Springs
American Life in Poetry BY TED KOOSER, U.S. POET LAUREATE
A while back, we published a poem about a mockingbird, but just because one poet has written a poem about something, he or she doesn’t hold rights to the subject in perpetuity. Here’s another fine mockingbird poem from Carol V. Davis, who lives in Los Angeles.
Mockingbird II How perfectly he has mastered the car alarm, jangling us from sleep. Later his staccato scatters smaller birds that landed on the wire beside him. Perhaps the key to success is imitation, not originality. Once, when the cat slinked up the orange tree and snatched a hatchling, the mockingbird turned on us, marked us for revenge. For two whole weeks he dive bombed whenever I ventured out the screen door lured by his call: first tricked into thinking the soft coo was a mourning dove courting, next drawn by the war cry of a far larger animal. He swooped from one splintered eave, his mate from the other, aiming to peck out my eyes, to wrestle the baby from my arms, to do God knows what with that newborn.

In support of outdoor movies To the Editor: I would like to voice my support for Luther Kurtz’s effort and accomplishment in bringing outdoor movies to downtown Harbor Springs. On his own he has done what the ‘place making’ and ‘visionering’ groups are trying to do. Bring elements to Harbor Springs that will keep our young residents here, and attract tourists and others to Harbor. I attended the outdoor movie and found it to be a very enjoyable experience. I didn’t do an actual head count, but must have seen 50 others there, including couples with young children. The venue of Thursday nights on the grass at the marina provides a great environment, and one similar to what other cities are doing to bring life to their towns and to support their residents. Harbor needs to applaud Luther’s efforts and support him in any way possible. I will. Wayne Avis Harbor Springs
Comments on possible waterfront changes
Save the trees Need for a Harbor Springs when building bike path family To the Editor: restaurant
To the Editor:
To the Editor:
As a lifetime resident and past member of the original DDA, Chairman of the Harbor Commission, Chamber of Commerce past president, and local business man, I have some comments on the redo of the waterfront. 1. Losing parking places there will lose jobs in the business places that depend on them. 2. The Harbor is full, the Harbor Plan that I was part of in 1982 and revisited in 2002 stands and there is no room for expansion. 3. Tennis courts must be replaced if removed from the present location. The Zoll Street City property would absorb 4 new courts and still have lots of green space. 4. A focal point of a carousel, fish pond, fountain etc offers no interest to the local people, or visiting public. Who is the visiting public in Harbor Springs? Not casual motel staying folks, but resorters, cottagers, and property owners who love what we have now and will resist any reduction in the waterfront parking in favor of bringing day tourists who buy only ice cream and go away, and further drive out our full time summer people. They are our industry. They need services the locals supply. The day tripper does nothing for the town. This has been going on for some time. When I was invited to a meeting at the old City Hall, there were about 30 people there, and yet, only four of us lived here long enough to remember what life was like in the 50’s-60’s 70’s and 80’s. Jack Burley Harbor Springs
Thursday, August 9 was a wonderful summer evening in Harbor Springs. We attended a very interesting lecture at the Harbor Springs History Museum on old landmark hotels in this city. It was Street Musique Night with lots of music and entertainment. The bonus was the fun Car Show at Zorn Park. All of these events attracted many visitors and locals. However, I overheard a sad commentary while trying to have dinner at the only family pizza restaurant in town. There was a line for seating due to all the fun activities going on. A family in front of me in line was getting frustrated by the wait. Finally, the wife with her children, said to her husband, “I told you I didn’t want to come to Harbor Springs” because of the lack of dining for families. How sad we provide lots of opportunities for visitors but no facilities to attract them to stay longer and eat and shop. There is an opportunity on Main Street in the previous Cedar Creek Interiors/ Card store to have a family restaurant. With all our efforts with the Downtown Development Authority, Chamber of Commerce, and WadeTrim study, we need to make family friendly dining a priority in Harbor Springs. Everyone knows this and talks about it all the time. Now someone will hopefully step forward to make this happen, if we want to make our wonderful city sustain itself as well as “grow-back to the future.” Sandi Wolf Harbor Springs
I am writing to the newspaper today, with the hope that a last minute change can be made to the Harbor Inc. Bike Path plan on M-119. As most people know, the Bike Path is complete from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs, with the exception of a ¼ mile stretch in front of Wequetonsing Golf Club. This last section is slated to be completed in early September. What most people don’t know, is that there are 4 magnificent oak trees that will be cut down in order to complete this project. The smallest of these trees have been there for at least 70 years. You can’t miss them as you drive along by the east side of the golf club, as they beautifully frame the side of the road. I do not use the Bike Path, however, it is my understanding that it was created to offer bike enthusiasts, runners and walkers a safe and aesthetically pleasing path from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs. I believe it has some value, but at the same time, I do not want the path to ruin the beauty of our up-north community. As much as the path has twisted and turned around mailboxes and driveways and natural obstacles on M-119, I would hope that MDOT and Harbor Inc. could come up with a creative way to save these beautiful trees from being cut down in the process. Once they are gone … they are gone forever. It takes a person’s lifetime for another tree like them to regrow to this size. I have been told by a number of people involved in the process that the path can go through without cutting these trees down. The path may be slightly more narrow, but it CAN BE DONE !! If this is important to you … please contact Harbor Inc and MDOT to ask that they kindly work around these magnificent natural treasures. Tracy Dulak Harbor Springs

‘Flotilla’ of watercraft being assembled here for Pure Michigan video shoot By DANIELLE MCINTOSH Harbor Light Newspaper
Harbor Springs will gather a “flotilla” of watercrafts for a Pure Michigan video shoot on Saturday, August 25 at the west end of the Harbor. The shoot will be done by Rob Bliss, the creator of the Grand Rapids LipDub video. Bliss’s viral video is known for generating millions of dollars for the city of Grand Rapids in tourism and publicity. As a partner of the Pure Michigan campaign, Harbor Springs was invited to dub one line of a song played for a new video featuring 50 Michigan cities. Harbor Springs Chamber executive director, Daniel DeWindt, said the video shoot is an opportunity to gain added value as a partner of the ongoing campaign. The obvious hope for the video is for publicity and greater exposure.
“But on the grassroots side, it’s an exciting event for locals and resorters to get together and get excited about Harbor Springs,” DeWindt added. DWindt went on to explain that summer resident, Rob Dube, proposed the idea of gathering watercraft of all sizes to showcase the harbor and all the people that love this town. Motorized and nonmotorized watercraft, including kayaks and paddleboards are welcome. “We don’t want it to seem ‘yachty,’” DeWindt said with a chuckle. “We are a boat town, but that is not all we are.” The true hope of bringing people out on the water is to showcase the deepest harbor in the lake and offer a different panoramic view. “Petoskey is going to have people in front of the waterfront, featuring the sunset, but physically being on the
Giant Petoskey Stone Marbles
water will be great fun and a unique vantage point,” DeWindt said. Logistics for the event are still in the works, added DeWindt, who noted the event has many working parts. Because the filmmaker is also filming 50 other cities, a specific time has not been set for the shoot. “One of our hurdles right now is that we might be able to provide a window of time, rather than an exact time for
people to gather,” DeWindt noted. The video shoot is currently scheduled for Sunday evening. Volunteers will be a key component to the success of the event. So far Josh Baker, owner of the Outfitter, has volunteered to help retain paddle boards, and other non-motorized watercrafts. Volunteers are also needed to coordinate the gathering of boats and safety logistics.
From a petting zoo to late night entertainment, Petoskey’s 10th Annual Festival on the Bay offers waterfront festivities for all age groups. Celebrate Petoskey’s waterfront August 17-19 with festival favorites such as the Corporate Challenge, Celebration of the Sunset, Keweenaw Star cruises, Jiimaan canoe rides, Chalk and Chocolate and entertainment tents.
New this year, the festival will feature a children’s area and petting zoo on Saturday, parasailing on Little Traverse Bay, and a teen dance on Saturday sponsored by SAFE Youth. Local non-profits have organized children’s activities including digging for Petoskey stones, a bounce house, an obstacle course, and yoga. This year 11 bands will
rock the Entertainment Tent on both Friday and Saturday. Performers will start at 5 p.m. on Friday and 12 p.m. on Saturday, and will perform until midnight both nights. Festival on the Bay will be selling buttons for $5 each, a small admission will be
An update on trail work being done throughout the area was recently provided by HARBOR Inc. executive director Rachel Smolinski. There are three trail projects currently being started or completed near Harbor Springs. The Safe Routes to School trail, also known as the Hoyt Road Trail, was approved for construction during a late July HARBOR Inc. board meeting, despite more than a $20,000 shortfall. Smolinski said she is pleased to note that shortfall has been reduced to just $9,300, thanks to generous support from the community. “I will continue to pursue various funding sources for the remaining amount in

order to meet our obligation in October. In the meantime, an on-site utility meeting occurred last week. I have been assure that we will see the beginning of activity on Hoyt Trail by Monday, August 20th,” she said. Approximately 300-feet of future trail on the Little Traverse Wheelway will be built to serve as a connector at Kosequat Park. The trail will be located through the wooded area behind the Bay Bluffs facility, where there is an existing dirt path. It will connect a trail-head area in the park with the Little Traverse Wheelway. “We are working in collaboration with the Top of Michigan Trails Council to include directional signage connecting the trail with downtown Harbor Springs and Hoyt Trail. Additional safety signage will be included as needed,” Smolinski reported. Trail plans and additional funding were approved by Harbor Springs City Council on Monday, August 6th, with bid requests going out to local contractors on August 12th. “We expect bid back within the next week and a half; therefore, construction may begin sometime in September,” she added. The last project Smolinski provided an update for, closing the “Wequetonsing gap” on Little Traverse Wheelway, has been a safety-related top priority since the trail was put into place. “The pre-construction meeting for this project was at the Gaylord MDOT office last Wednesday (August 8),” she said.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH firstname.lastname@example.org | 231.526.7842 You can accuse me of waxing on ad nauseam on the reasons that I like living here; I wouldn’t deny it. I heard a couple of stories recently that confirmed again for me that it isn’t just my rose colored glasses but that we are honestly surrounded by incredible people. The charm of this area is not the shops or even the views; it is the people.

Mary Lou Thayer called and asked me to express her gratitude for the proverbial “kindness of strangers.” She and daughter Brenda were out walking Taz, their newest fuzzy family member down in Wequetonsing when the dog made an unplanned move, causing Mrs. Thayer to fall and fall hard, striking her head. She said that people came from seemingly everywhere to help. Someone offered tissues, her glasses were damaged in the fall and there was a doctor in the crowd who helped put them back to a point where they were wearable. Another gentleman pulled up and offered them a ride back to where they had left their car. Although she didn’t get any names, understandable in that circumstance, she wanted to express her very sincere thanks to all of these kind strangers. (Mary Lou is okay, albeit a little bruised and broken around the edges
and with some recovery time in her future before another walk.) Another story that warmed my heart recently involved Ally Bonser Warner and her daughter Carrigan. They were on their way back from an appointment at DeVos Children’s Hospital and they stopped at a gas station in Fife Lake. After getting what they needed, they went to pay for their purchases when a woman stepped forward and said she wanted to “pay it forward,” she paid their bill and told them to have a nice day. She told Ally that she does this as often as she can afford to and that she tries to find women with children as she was once a single mom herself. On what was undoubtedly a difficult day for Ally and Carrigan (doctor’s appointments and tests are rarely fun,) this generous act brought a ray of sunshine. I personally have experienced the honesty and good-
ness of people regularly, as I have left my wallet at 7-11 and in my cart at Glen’s (more than once) and I left my purse at the movie theater most recently; always got them back intact. My favorite personal story took place a few years ago. My niece and I were driving to Traverse City to catch a plane, it was about 5:00 in the morning and we stopped at my office in Petoskey for some last minute details. On our way a few moments later and we stopped for something to drink, only to find that my purse with our plane tickets and several hundred dollars in cash was no longer in the car. Apparently it had fallen out when we stopped at my office. The police station wasn’t manned at that time of the night, so we drove around and found a police car, planning to have him call dispatch and see if by chance the purse had been turned in. He was on the phone/radio when we got there and believe it
or not, he was speaking with a citizen who had been out jogging, found the purse and was calling to have the police pick it up. We drove a block or two to where the gentleman lived, got the purse and were on our way, all in about fifteen minutes. He was very gracious and wouldn’t accept a reward, but he did save our vacation and I am forever appreciative of that. The Pollyanna in me believes that, for the most part, people everywhere are fundamentally good, but the realist in me knows that my odds of getting my wallet back are much better here than if I left it on the subway in New York City. This is yet another reason that I am happy to be living in Northern Michigan. The kindness and generosity of the area will again be tested this weekend with a fund raiser for Meghan McKinney Vanhorn at Nub’s Nob from 3-8 this Saturday. Meghan is suffering from a
yet to be diagnosed illness and any help for her and her family will be appreciated. I know there have been absolutely wonderful gifts donated for both silent and live auctions; there will be food, carnival for the kids and entertainment. Happy Birthday wishes going out this week on Thursday, August 16, to Jerri LaCount and Peggy Seamon and on Friday to Ed Meyer, Gary Morse, Rudy Mildner and Jesse Hadix (couple of my favorite cousins in that list.) On Sunday, Happy Birthday to Tara Lasley Kruzel, John Adams and Kimberly Hurd and on Monday a birthday wish accompanied by a hug to Maddy Heinz. Finally, Happy Birthday on Wednesday, August 22 to Kari Tippett Rye and John Johnson and Happy Anniversary wishes going out to Jesse and Tami Hadix on August 17.

Chamber Orchestra to stage two musical performances this month in Petoskey, Charlevoix The Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra will stage two musical performances in Charlevoix and Petoskey this month. On Sunday, August 19, in Charlevoix, the orchestra will give a free performance at 3 p.m. in the band shell on the waterfront. The performance is underwritten by the Charlevoix County Community Foundation. On Saturday, August 25, the orchestra will be joined by the Crooked Tree Arts Center’s Pre-Professional Dancers for a performance at 7 p.m. in John M. Hall Auditorium in Bay View. The Saturday evening concert will feature the original “Peterboro Letters Ballet” premiered by the orchestra last year. The chamber orchestra commissioned Heather Raue, the Crooked Tree Art Center’s director of dance, to create a new ballet based on the music of northern Michi-
gan composer Lynn Palmer Warren and the lithography of northern Michigan artist Betty Beeby. Warren’s music was inspired by Beeby’s lithographs that were based on a collection of letters from 1904 that she had found in a trunk owned by her father. The letters had been written by a 43-year-old single woman who had recently been reunited with her 26-year-old son who her family had told her had died shortly after his
birth. Two other works will be featured at the Bay View concert. Violinist Yuri Namkung will perform “The Lark Ascending,” a romance for violin and orchestra written by Ralph Vaughan Williams, and pianist Tony Patterson will perform two Chopin piano compositions, Waltz #14 in E Minor and Nocturne in C Sharp Minor. Members of the ballet troupe will provide dance accompaniment for

Wequetonsing Golf Club has been incredibly generous in working with us on this project, and we unfortunately cannot ask them, nor can we expect them to give us more of an easement, in order to circumvent the oak trees. “Given the granted easements, we will have just enough space to construct the path to meet MDOT safety requirements.

Sharing her love of sailing here for more than 35 years -CONTINUED from page 1.
With an ingrained knowledge of the mechanics of sailing, and many years of onwater experience, Wilderom ran the LTS sailing school from 1971-2005. One of her biggest motivations for running LTS for so long? The many fond memories she has of being out on the water, and the freedom that came with knowing how to sail well at an early age. “I’ve had wonderful times growing up sailing,” she said “I naturally want to share that with somebody else.” From the start, LTS was a popular program, and has only continued to grow each year. By the time Wilderom retired, sail school was limited to 30 kids in the morning and 30 in the afternoon. Scholarships for the weeklong sailing sessions have always been high on Wilderom’s list. She said she highly values giving kids in the area an opportunity to sail, particularly those who may not have otherwise have access to on-water opportunities. Currently, LTS supports scholarships for 12-15 local students. During her 35 years, Wilderom cemented the foundational beliefs of LTS, grounding strong ethics into sailing and racing. This directly correlated with one of the first lessons she taught: a respect for the water.
“I have an honest respect for the water and love of it too,” she said, noting safety is key. For Wilderom, going down to the sailing school every day was a true labor of love. “It was fun; you felt like -CONTINUED from page 1. you were doing something Education meeting-- which significant in the kids lives,” included a 50 minute closed Wilderom said. “It was love session to discuss legal opinat first sight, it was the most ion-- Scholten was officially wonderful job and I never had removed from her position as elementary principal.

Tompkins said a committee, headed up by athletic director Dave Iafolla, has been created to campaign for the community pool millage. “We’re hopeful the community will support this important resource,” he noted.
In April, the state of Washington declared a pertussis epidemic. The CDC also noted that more than half of the infants who contract pertussis at less than one year of age require hospital care. Dr. Meyerson said infants should receive four (4) doses of pertussis vaccine by the time they reach 18 months of age, and recommends a routine booster dose before they begin kindergarten. He also warns that the protection offered by diptheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTaP) boosters can fade over time, meaning pre-teens (starting routinely at age 11) should get a DTaP dose. Adults who did not receive a DTaP dose in their earlier years – particularly healthcare workers, or those who are around infants, including relatives and daycare providers –should also obtain a booster dose as soon as possible.

There will be no demolition derby event this year, due to a lack of “clunker” cars. For the third year, Manna Food Project, along with Gibby Fries and Skerbeck Carnival, have donated 300 gate passes and ride tickets for local families. “We know that it’s hard to get by sometimes, which is why we try and keep the fair inexpensive and have not to raise ride or gate prices this year,” Shaw noted.

Thousands of children and adults lost their lives to pertussis – commonly known as “whooping cough” – each year, in the years before effective vaccines became readily available. But despite today’s proven success and availability of pertussis vaccination, many people remain unvaccinated, which places them at extreme risk of contracting and spreading this highly contagious bacterial disease. “The most important thing parents can do to protect their children from illnesses like pertussis is to get their infants vaccinated, and follow the schedule for booster doses as their babies grow,” advised Joshua Meyerson, M.D., medical director for the Health Department of Northwest Michigan. Dr. Meyerson added that, although vaccination has substantially reduced the number of pertussis cases, the disease remains a threat. “It can be a very serious illness,” he said. “It’s also important for family members of young babies to get a pertussis booster shot, so they’re protected from the illness and don’t pass it on to infants.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), increased pertussis activity or outbreaks were reported in a majority of U.S. states during the first half of 2012. The agency says nearly 18,000 cases have been reported nationwide so far this year – more than twice the number reported in 2011 – and nine infants have died.

Through the generosity of the Dorothy Gerber Family, Crooked Tree Arts Center will be offering strings classes for the youth orchestra program and in the schools again this fall! The strings program is celebrating its 13th season for offering classes to students in northern Michigan. Last season over 500 students from Charlevoix, Emmet, and Antrim counties participated in the program. Crooked Tree Youth Orchestra classes are scheduled to begin on Monday, September 17th. The Crooked Tree Youth Orchestra program consists of three main ensembles including the Concert Orchestra class, which is primarily for string players with at least two years of playing experience, and the Chamber Orchestra
for the advancing high school and adult players. The Symphony Orchestra includes strings members from the Chamber Orchestra with the addition of students that play wind, brass, or percussion instruments. Students that participate in the Symphony Orchestra are given exposure to music written by composers, such as Mozart and Beethoven, which was intended to be performed by an ensemble with a blend of string instruments and wind, brass, and percussion instruments. Last fall, the Symphony Orchestra was able to purchase percussion equipment for the program with a grant from the Charlevoix County Community Foundation. Also happening this Sep-
tember, orchestra directors Robert Dudd and Jennifer McAndrew will be visiting Char-Em ISD area schools to demonstrate strings instruments and enroll beginning students in Dorothy Gerber Strings Program in the Schools. “What’s great about the Dorothy Gerber Strings Program is that there is no cost for families to register their children in the class,” McAndrew said. “The students do need to provide their own instrument which they can rent through one of the several music companies that service our program. Crooked Tree also provides scholarships to families that need financial assistance in paying for the rental of the instrument, making it possible for every child
to have the opportunity to be a part of our program.” Strings classes are offered to students third grade through high school. A Homeschool class will also be available to home school families in the area. On Monday, October 1st at 11:00am there will be a meeting for all home school students interested in enrolling in the strings program. Please contact Crooked Tree Arts Center regarding registration for the Youth Orchestra and String program classes offered in the schools at (231) 347-4337 or by visiting the Crooked Tree Arts Center website at www.crookedtree. org.
Coffee at Ten event at CTAC to feature boat builder Emory Barnwell on August 21 Barnwell Boat Works owner, R. Emory Barnwell-- who grew up in Harbor Springs-will discuss the making of the 14’ sailboat that is currently on display in the Edith Gilbert Gallery at the Crooked Tree Arts Center. His sailboat is part of the Artists of Mackinac Island exhibition that is currently on display until September 2. After obtaining a degree from the University of Montana from the College of Forestry and Conservation, he next attended the International Boatbuilding Training College in Lowestoft, England to study traditional wood boat construction and restoration, building classic plank-on-frame boats with time-tested, proven methods and materials. One of Barnwell’s first challenges out of boatbuilding school was the two year
restoration of the Bernida, a Great Lakes Champion sailing vessel that was designed by George Owen and built by George Lawley in 1921. The Bernida was the first boat to win the Bayview to Mackinac race in 1925. On display in the Edith Gilbert Gallery is a boat the Barnwell complete this March with classic handcrafted boatbuilding techniques. The Coffee at Ten series is free and open to the public. The Crooked Tree Arts Center is located downtown Petoskey at 461 E. Mitchell Street. For more information please call the Arts Center at (231) 347-4337 or visit www. crookedtree.org.

City looking for Tree City volunteers Harbor Springs City Council is looking for local citizens to help the City become a Tree City USA participant. Developing a “Tree Board” is one of the four criteria to be met if the City is to take the step to becoming a “Tree City”. The Arbor Day Foundation’s “Tree City USA” is a program for cities that want to develop community plans, programs and policies to protect and enhance their ‘urban forest’ and make theirs a more attractive and healthy community. At the August 6 meeting of City Council, city manager Tom Richards briefed the Council on the benefits and opportunities of becoming an official Tree City. He also advised Council of the four key requirements of joining

the program. Tree City communities must: · Establish a Tree Board or department · Develop an ordinance for the proper maintenance and regulation of trees in the City · Create a community forestry program to help increase, manage and care for the City’s trees · Annually recognize Arbor Day through a local event or proclamation Council reviewed the many efforts that member cities use to help promote a more desirable and sustainable community. They considered the positive steps already taken in managing the City’s trees and they expressed interest in pursuing the Tree City format for an even more comprehensive effort that would be guided by the public.
Council members recognized the critical role that local citizens can have in determining the best path toward enhancing and managing the City’s trees, but they also expressed concern that a small community like Harbor Springs may not have enough interested local citizens who would be willing to commit the time and effort necessary to establish a productive citizens’ Tree Board. Council agreed that it should reach out to the public to see if a Tree Board is a viable option in Harbor Springs. Mayor Dika encourages all citizens interested in serving on a Harbor Springs Tree Board to contact him at: mayor@cityofharborsprings. com or by calling City Hall at 231-526-2104.
