Focused on downtown

Chamber hosting Chili Cook-Off Sunday Winter may have settled into the bones of northern Michigan at long last, but there will be plenty of heat coming from downtown Harbor Springs on Sunday, February 19 during the annual Harbor Springs Area Chili Cook-Off. Amateurs and professional chefs alike will bring their best recipes to be judged by community participants. While the event, held at the Pier Restaurant from 2-4 p.m., is a great excuse to fill your belly to the brim, it will also strive to fill the shelves of the Harbor Springs Food Pantry. Those who attend the Chili CookOff are encouraged to bring nonperishable items to donate to the pantry, including food, cleaning supplies, paper products, toiletries, and even pet food. “We always have such great, friendly competition, and some really good chili,” said Scott Herceg, executive director of the Harbor Springs Area Chamber of Commerce, the group organizing the event. “The partnership with the food pantry adds an extra community service layer that makes everyone feel good.” Tickets to the event will be available at the door. For more information, contact the Harbor Springs Area Chamber of Commerce (231) 526-7999. -CONTINUED on page 3.

City’s DDA seeks proposals for downtown enhancement plan By KATE BASSETT Harbor Light Newspaper

Winter Ride...

Harbor Springs has long been known for its slower pace and small town charm, and weekend horse and carriage rides through downtown now celebrate the waterfront community’s winter beauty. Passengers can be picked up for a free carriage ride at several spots on Main Street and near the restaurants along the corner of State and Bay Streets.

Financing improvements to the Harbor Springs School District was the focus of the Board of Education’s meeting Monday, February 13.The board approved the letting of bids for locker room renovations and trophy cases, as well as infrastructure improvements, such as network electronics. The board also approved the General Fund and Community Schools Budget Amendment for this fiscal year. The district was expecting a $1.1 million deficit for the 2011-2012 school year, and the amendment showed that number to be reduced to just over $1 million, with some $866,000 of the district’s fund balance slated to be used for the shortfall. Despite the continuing economic struggles the district faces, the majority of Monday’s discussion was spent looking forward, focusing on the annual May school election ballot. Two proposals-- the annual

non-homestead operating millage (which will move to a three year approval this election) and a renewal of a Building and Site Sinking Fund -- will be on the ballot. If the building and site sinking fund millage is renewed, the district will be renewing at a lower rate of .54 mills, rather than the current .66 mills, noted superintendent Mark Tompkins. Dating back to 2007, Tompkins said voters can physically see most of the district’s previous sinking fund investments, including projects like the high school’s weight room, pool maintenance, portable buildings at Blackbird Elementary and a new music and band wing at the high school. This time, the Board of Education voted to put a five year (as opposed to three year) building and site sinking fund proposal on the ballot. Tompkins said the longer time frame will allow for a longer lists of projects to be completed. “Our list of projects can change monthly, with necessities and main-

tenance. We hope the community understands the importance of this millage,” Tompkins said Monday night. Prior to meeting adjournment, the board announced a posting for a new head football coach, following the resignation of Head Coach Del Walden, would be externally posted this week. The board will also be accepting applications for a new Elementary Principal between March 14-28. In the meantime, the board will prioritize the characteristics of an effective principal for the posting. The interview process will include several steps, Tompkins explained, including possible case studies or observation periods. “The best way to know if a teacher is effective, is to watch them teach. We want to figure out a way where we can measure and observe a principle and we are thinking of the best methods to do so,” Tompkins added.

There has been a LOT of discussion in the last year about the future of Harbor Springs. It’s no secret this small town is struggling to maintain a year-round economy, and conversations about everything from building community to filling empty storefronts captured the attention of City Council, who reactivated the Harbor Springs Downtown Development Authority (DDA) in 2011. Now, with guidance from Council, the DDA has taken the first step toward creating a plan for action, putting out a request for proposals for a Downtown Enhancement Plan. The search for a qualified consultant to help “formulate a strategy designed to bring more vitality back to the downtown,” will steer the work of the Authority, which was originally formed in 1983, but has been quiet for nearly a decade. “I have been approached by many people that own property in the community who have complained that Harbor Springs isn’t ‘fun’ any more, that there is little for a young family to do downtown, there are no family style restaurants, there is little variety in the restaurants we do have, few stores open in the evening, there are no places for single adults to hang out (our existing watering holes don’t lend themselves to that),” said Mayor Alan Dika. “There were many groups discussing ways to make our town more fun, more vital, a better place to do business, a better place to live. I hoped to bring these groups together under some sort of umbrella, pool their energy, and be able to implement some of the better ideas being generated. The DDA is a tool at our disposal that can do just that, so I fired it up again,” Dika said. “The DDA was recently given the directive from the City Council to pursue a downtown enhancement strategy that included, among other things, the consideration of a new waterfront plan,” said chair Rob Mossburg. “The request for -CONTINUED on page 2.

Springs, off Stutsmanville Road. The land upon which the new tower is rising was owned by the Emmet County Road Commission, and it currently houses a 150-foot communications beacon used mainly by the ECRC to help its drivers communicate. After Bradley discussed CCE’s communications needs with Brian Gutowski, Emmet County Road Commission Manager, the ECRC transferred ownership of the parcel to CCE for construction of a new 350-foot tower, which is in progress. In exchange for the land, the road commission continues to get space on the tower and in the equipment shelter. Prior to the new arrangement, CCE had been renting space at a cost of $1,500 per month on a privately-owned tower at Boyne Highlands. “We were looking to get out

Whether it’s a road commission truck plowing the wintry way in front of an ambulance racing to the hospital, or multiple regional agencies coordinating a life-saving rescue operation, inter-agency collaboration is paramount to a successful emergency response system. In Emmet, Charlevoix and Cheboygan counties, such cooperation is the norm. “People expect emergency services to be available exactly when they need them,” said Bob Bradley, director of CCE 9-1-1 Central Dispatch. “And they are. We all work hard to ensure that.” The most recent example of how collaboration benefits the region is a new communications tower being constructed north of Harbor

American Life in Poetry

-CONTINUED from page 1.


Carol L. Gloor is an attorney living in Chicago and Savanna, Illinois. I especially like this poem of hers for its powerful ending, which fittingly uses the legal language of trusts and estates.

Moment At the moment of my mother’s death I am rinsing frozen chicken. No vision, no rending of the temple curtain, only the soft give of meat. I had not seen her in four days. I thought her better, and the hospital did not call, so I am fresh from an office Christmas party, scotch on my breath as I answer the phone. And in one moment all my past acts become irrevocable.

proposals stresses the importance of engaging full time and seasonal residents, property owners, and the business community in this planning process and the mining of ideas from a variety of resources to formulate a vision for downtown Harbor Springs.” It also will analyze the downtown retail, business, office and residential market, and identify potential economic opportunities for downtown, including possible year-round and off-peak business opportunities. Mossburg said the DDA expects the plan will include a list of specific, prioritized projects and strategies for the revitalization of downtown. Timing for the plan, according to the request for proposals, states the consultant will present final documents to the DDA no later than October 1, 2012.

Hospital cancer program accredited The cancer program at Northern Michigan Regional Hospital recently received three-year re-accreditation with commendation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons, and is recognized as a Comprehensive Cancer Program by the Commission. The accreditation program, a component of the Commission on Cancer, sets quality-of-care standards for cancer programs and reviews the programs to ensure they conform to those standards. Northern Michigan Regional Hospital received the threeyear accreditation with commendation following an on-site evaluation during which the facility demonstrated a commendation level of compliance with one or more standards that represent the full scope of the cancer program (cancer committee leadership, cancer data man-

agement, clinical services, research, community outreach, and quality improvement). In addition, the facility received a compliance rating for all other standards. “Everyone involved with our Cancer Center is dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive care to patients and their families,” said Reezie DeVet, Northern Michigan Regional Health System President and CEO. “This recognition emphasizes our commitment to not just treating cancer, but improving outcomes for patients in our region afflicted with this disease.” Accreditation requires that comprehensive Commission on Cancer accredited cancer programs ensure patient access to: • Comprehensive care, including a range of stateof-the-art services and equipment • A multi-specialty team approach to coordinate the best treatment options

• Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options • Cancer-related information, education, and support • A cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers and treatment results, and offers life-long follow-up • On-going monitoring and improvement of care • Quality care, close to home “Our re-certification by the Commission recognizes the enormous commitment and talent of dozens of professionals who care for our cancer patients,” said Justin Klamerus, MD, Program Director of Cancer Services at Northern Michigan Regional Hospital. “ To learn more about the Cancer Center at Northern Michigan Regional Hospital, please visitnorthernhealth. org/cancercenter or call 800.248.6777.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 Remember the old poster/ bumper sticker quote, “Practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty?” I know I have hit this subject before, but I never fail to be amazed at the generosity of our community, where this attitude is a part of daily life. I spent part of Sunday afternoon at the 4-H center at the Emmet County Fairgrounds at a fund raiser for Brother Dan’s Food Pantry. This is the third year for this annual event and it was amazing. The place was packed full of people who had paid to attend, many of whom were not particularly affluent, simply every day people willing to share. Some of the premier bands/entertainers in the area donated their time, there was wonderful food from many businesses and a small army of volunteers working

constantly to be sure that the buffet was always full. In addition, there was a silent auction with gifts and services donated by businesses and individuals. Everyone there had in some way or another assisted in the cause of raising money to help insure their neighbors had food on their tables in these difficult times. Next week, there is a similar event for the Manna Project; I have no doubt that it will be a resounding success. There are two fundraising events this month for the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, both of which will be well attended and well funded. Fund raisers held for someone who is sick or for a family who has lost someone and is having trouble meeting their bills or for a family that has lost their home to fire are always well attended and very successful. I know from personal experience that when my parents’ home burned down, they were overwhelmed by the compassion and generosity of their friends and neighbors; there was no fundraiser, people just took it upon themselves to offer donations. Jeri Paige Wilson shared that over Christmas, people would come in to K-Mart and pay off lay-aways for random, anonymous people; when the buyers came to pick up their merchandise, there was no balance due. What a special Christmas present that was for some struggling families. I’ve heard stories from the staffs of the fast-food restaurants of people going through the drive through and paying for their own food and for the car behind them; I’m told that also happens at the toll booth on the Mackinac Bridge. I happened to stop into both the Salvation Army and the Manna Project offices just before Christmas and the sheer number of volunteers was awesome, people giving not just their money but also their time. In these days when it seems that news outlets tend to cover only the horrific, head-

line grabbing stories, I am convinced that there is just as much good going on, it just doesn’t seem to merit the same press. And maybe it is true everywhere. I can’t attest to that, but here, we take care of our own; that is what being part of a community means to me. When left to their own devices and choices, people are always willing to dig a little deeper and give, even if it means going without a little for themselves. Helping out your neighbor can mean at-

tending an event like the ones mentioned here or simply dropping off a batch of soup when someone is sick or offering to baby-sit because someone needs a break. I know of several cases in the last year of virtual search parties helping to look for lost pets. It happens here every day to no fanfare or recognition. I hear people complain about living in small towns because everyone knows your business. That may be true, but it’s comforting to know that they

She is never phased with what is in front of her. Her ability to adjust to the style of play (which on this night was very physical-the 2 teams combined to shoot 76 free throws) is just incredible. Unfortunately, our team came up a bit short on the night.” Friday, February 10 vs. TC St. Francis TCSF 60, Harbor Springs 39 Stat Leaders: Elena Ongaro, 14 pts Jenna Lechowicz, 11 pts Maggie Walker, 7 points, 11 rebs Coach’s Comments: Head Coach Jennifer Foley said, “St. Francis is a top 10 team in the state in class C. We knew it was going to take a great effort to defeat them. We came out very strong in the first quarter but in the middle 2 quarters they really took it to us. Their physical play and execution defensively took us out of what we wanted to do. Games like these are great for us down the stretch as they prepare us for the tournament.”

Lynn Dinning has been a full-time professional ski instructor for 35 years, with the last 30 spent teaching skiers at Nub’s Nob. An Alpine Ski Instructor who coaches all ages and abilities, Dinning also teaches Nordic Skiing and and specializes in helping cautious skiers build confidence. With winter finally settling into its rightful place in northern Michigan, we checked in with Dinning to get a little inside scoop on the world of “pizza and french fries” (also known as learning how to stop and go on the slopes).

Girls capture Conference Ski Title

How has the sport of skiing changed since you began as a ski instructor?

Wednesday, February 8 at Boyne Highlands Heading into Regionals, Harbor Springs Women’s Varsity Ski Team now reign as Lake Michigan Conference Champs. Womens GS, 1st place Abigail Hackman, 2nd place, 59.00 Rose Pellegrom, 4th place, 1:00.08 Tia Esposito, 6th place, 1:00.89 Morgan Mooradian, 7th place, 1:01.96 Claire Cunninghma, 8th place, 1:02.81 Meg Shepherd, 17th place, 1:05.55 Womens S, 2nd place Abigail Hackman, 2nd place, 1:11.98 Morgan Mooradian, 4th place, 1:14.78 Rose Pellegrom, 6th place, 1:16.48 Tia Esposito, 10th place, 1:18.79 Meg Shepherd, 12th place, 1:19.64 Mens GS, 2nd place Jac Talcott, 5th place, 1:04.38 Nick Mogford, 6th place, 1:05.00 John Bailey, 7th place, 1:05.35 Greg Gallagher, 12th place, 1:06.43 Forrest Lundgren, 13th place, 1:06.75 Dan Davis, 18th place, 1:10.47

We use to have the long straight skis; the new design of skis in the past 20 years has revolutionized the industry. New skis are more joint friendly, and people can ski much later in life. Skiing is now for people of all ages, and generations of families can now ski together.

Rebounds: Eva Zoerhof,10; Shallon Grawey, 8; Morgan Reeves, 5 Assists: Layne Compton and Maddy Savard, 3 Coach’s Comments: Head Coach Tom Brogger said, “What a great way to finish an exhausting week. With our third game in four nights at St Francis, the girls had to be somewhat fatigued. To their credit, it did not show. We are an aggressive team. Defensively it really helps us. Offensively, we’re getting better at playing this way, yet under control. The eight point lead we gained in the first quarter ended up being the difference although there were many tense moments as the game moved along. In the end, it was our stall in the final two and a half minutes that might have surprised them a little and was really quite good. It’s easy to see who’s been leading this team lately. It’s in the stats above. Unfortunately though, what you don’t see are the quality minutes we get from our bench in this and in every game.”

Mens S, 2nd place Dan Davis, 6th place, 1:14.50 Forrest Lundgren, 7th place, 1:15.27 John Bailey, 9th place, 1:18.26 Jack Talcott, 11th place, 1:18.40 Greg Gallagher, 12th place, 1:18.69 Matthew Fought, 15th place, 1:20.08 Coach’s Comments: Head Coach Jane Ramer said, “The girls are all peaking at the right time and winning the conference is a great mental boost for them as they get ready to compete in our Regionals this week. If we have some solid finishes from both the girls and boys we can accomplish our goal of qualifying for the State Meet.” Regionals will be hosted in Harbor Springs at Nub’s Nob on Thursday, February 16, all day. Start time is 9 a.m. The top 3 teams from the Regionals will qualify for the State Meet.

Scoring: Shallon Grawey, 9; Morgan Reeves, 8; Maddy Savard, 6; Layne Compton, 4; Betsey Simons, 2 Rebounds: Shallon Grawey, 6; Eva Zoerhof, Morgan Reeves and Morgan Lauer, 5 each Steals: Betsey Simons, Layne Compton and Maddy Savard, 3 each Coach’s Comments: Head Coach Tom Brogger said, “It was “just like deja-vu all over again”. Probably not the best thing to be going through when talking about a loss. We have followed this script before. We play hard, fall behind, storm back but fall short in the end. Ouch! Is the effort there and are we getting better? Yes, clearly and I don’t think anyone would argue that. Can we get over this hump? Yes -- again and that will be our [coach and players] challenge. After being down by 10, early in the forth quarter we had the ball twice with a chance to tie in the final 30 seconds. Our girls do amazing things sometimes and I’m still proud of what they’ve accomplished.”

What is advice you would give families when teaching kids to ski? Take a lesson. In the off season we can get rusty, just like riding a bike. Take a tune-up lesson with a trained, certified coach. With any age our lessons are about safety first, fun and learning.

What is your most memorable moment teaching on the hill? We teach a wedge stop or “pizza” to our youngsters. I remember one of our instructors telling a young boy, about four or five, to “pizza”, but the boy didn’t understand. And he said, “but pizza is round” -- apparently he had been eating personal size pizzas and had never had a slice. This reminds us that there is a ton of ways to say the same thing. And it’s not until you see that light bulb go off, and that look on their face that you know that you finally got through to them. That is one of the most rewarding parts of coaching.

Why are lessons worth the investment? People are very comfortable with having coaches for other sports like baseball, football and swimming, and skiing should not be any different. Since we can’t ski in the off season, lessons are important for re-teaching our muscles and form to avoid developing bad habits. We can also use lessons to boost our level, hone our skills and teach our bodies to be more efficient.

What can beginners do to have a positive experience on the slopes? If anyone has questions, or cautions, come to a professional. Often we can fix the issue quickly and easily. Remember to be safe and have fun getting outdoors with friends and family.

Who is your skiing hero? All of the professional ski and snowboard instructors I had and worked with along the way, helped me to become a better skier and instructor. And I am forever grateful to them.

Community History From the

Note: Back in 1981, the Harbor Light Newspaper collaborated with area history experts, local civic organizations and area businesses to produce a Harbor Springs Centennial Edition of the Harbor Light marking the 100th birthday of Harbor Springs. We are in the process of bringing the articles and features from that issue back to life and plan to re-issue that edition in a new format at some point in the next year. As part of that process, we will be including excerpts and articles from that edition periodically here in these pages, along with other history-related content. We have invited the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society and its executive director Mary Cummings to submit related content as well. We hope you enjoy these looks back in our community’s history. We will also be featuring these articles online in new blog -- more on that later. -Charles O’Neill

“All Aboard... Let Our Password Be Onward!” Memories From Early Times The following article was published in the Little Traverse Republican in the Feb. 21, 1877 issue: A meeting was held last Saturday night attended by citizens of Little Traverse and adjoining towns in Hartwell’s Hall to hear a committee report possibly of building the railroad from the M.E. Camp Ground (Bay View) to the Little Traverse Village. A.J. Southard and W.R. Bowser contacted the railroad company, Grand Rapids and Indiana, and reported the company would be interested if sufficient interest could be aroused through the public subscription of funds to aid in the cost of constructing a spur line. The benefits which will be derived from such a service as an extension of the G.R. and I, are beyond description. Think for a moment the capacity of our beautiful harbor with its connection and facilities for water navigation to all parts of the United States. Would it be a surprise, then, with a position second to none hundred miles either above us or below us on the Great Lakes to see within a few years hundreds of vessels taking position beside our docks. Steps are being taken now for the erection of a new school building in Little Traverse, and other improvements are being made that will be a credit to our town. We feel that the future success and prosperity hinges on our ability to persuade the railroad to make a connection here. We now say All Board - then let our password be - Onward!

Walk Down Memory Lane... Editor’s Note: Walk the streets of Harbor Springs with knowledgeable native resident, M.A. “Chick” Erwin. Hear now more about hometown personalities and places and community events when Harbor Springs was younger. These reflections and recollections will be continued from time to time throughout this centennial season... BY MATTHEW A. ERWIN with Tim Jardine Of the Harbor Light Staff

As the lumbering era started to fade in the Harbor Springs area resorters began arriving, replacing the lumberjack and another era took hold. Harbor Springs quickly would grow and soon emerged as a summer season favored place to be. In the latter part of the 20’s and early 30’s the automobile replaced the horse and carriage, although boats and trains still stopped here and the adventurous would drive to their summer homes. Business downtown flourished. M.A. (Chick) Erwin was growing up in Harbor Springs in those days. What follows is a glimpse of what Harbor Springs was like some 50 eyars ago, a walk down memory lane. * * * Harbor Springs was bustling when July rolled around in 1930. The Great Depression that had distressing effects in larger cities had not hit this resort town too noticeably. Summer homes had been readied, lawns trimmed and the natives were looking forward to the annual arrival of summer residents. Many of these would arrive by boat, coming from Chicago, and one of the first sights they would spy was the lighthouse on Harbor Point, followed by the red roof of the Ramona Park Hotel. As the big steamer neared the dock they would see Billy Perry, sitting on this dray, waiting to haul luggage to the resorts and hotels. His team,. “Tom” and “Bill”, waited patiently

along with his helpers, big Gus Kiogima and Eddie Shaw. After the boat had docked and the passengers had made their way down the dock, they would see Joe Ettawageshiec selling his Indian novelties, some made by him or bought during the winter months and some of the Pontius family selling flowers. To the west of the dock stood Booth’s Pavilion and the very active train depot. A look straight ahead offered a State Street scene and to the east would find huge piles of lumber, stacked there by the Roe Brothers, who also ran a tour boat and a dock building business, and John Rarick’s Fixit Shop and three-wheeled motorcycle used for deliveries. ‘BEST WATER ON EARTH’ As passengers crossed the tracks by the end of the dock they might head east along Bay Street there to be picked up by their chauffeurdriven limousines stored here in one of the garages during winter. Or they might go to the Emmet House or “Wa-Wa-Ta-See Inn”, both located near the intersection of Bay and Gardener Streets. “Shorty” Abbott’s Pool Room stood where the Bar Harbor stands now. Before prohibition “Shorty” had quite a saloon. Unknown to most of his customers he stood on a box while serving them. He wanted to be impressive and felt he would have to stand taller than his natural frame would allow. Outside the building was a flowing well and Mr. Abbott had placed a sign there saying: “Shorty Abbott’s Well. Best water on earth,” Walking down Bay Street, a person would pass Olaf Stiansen’s Bay Street Garage”. Some resorters would stop here to meet their driver. Next to the garage once stood the first gas station in Harbor Springs. Henry Melching ran it, later moving it to where the Hollywood Sunoco stands now. Mr. Melching also operated a bus service, which offered rides to cottages and to the golf course.

Remember when it really used to snow? Remember the old winter sports park? Remember the 20-man bobsled that used to run on the Bull Moose Hill? If you haven’t had your quota of “real winter” this year, the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society invites you to “Share Winter Memories” this Thursday, February 16 at 7:00 pm. This casual discussion is part of the Historical Society’s monthly Harbor History Talk series. We have invited community members including Eleanor “Muggs” Jardine to talk about winter activities through the years. We have also invited Elise Hayes to share her memories of her family’s 35+ year history at Nub’s Nob Ski Area. The talk with be informal and audience participation will be strongly encouraged. Additionally, anyone bringing a winter-related artifact or photo to share with the group will receive free admission! This program is also your chance to check out the real 20-man bobsled on display at the Historical Society. The talk will begin at 7 pm and light refreshments will be served. Admission to the Harbor History Talk is $3 per person and free for HSAHS members. The Harbor History Talks are presented ten months out of the year by the Historical Society and are sponsored in part by Graham Real Estate. The History Talks take place in the second-floor Anton Library at the Harbor Springs History Museum, 349 E. Main Street, Harbor Springs.

I have never seen them play so well. Each one did something outstanding during our game. Amanda Hoffman really kicked in high gear last night and was a great leader on the floor. Sophie Seitz was our second leading scorer for the night with 7 points. She was taking it to the basket with such ease -- so great to see. Also, Perry Bower and Karli Schwark rocked defensively. They never slowed down. Perry was everywhere and coming up with the ball multiple times. She had 11 steals for us. Each girl had a shining moment.”

At the Movies with Cynthia Morse ZuMbaugh

The Vow To be honest, this isn’t the kind of movie I generally rush out to see. I’m not a big fan of what looks to be a chick flick. But it was Valentine’s Day weekend and my pal, a big fan of this genre, wanted to see it, so we did. Strangely enough, I think I liked it better than she did. It wasn’t the story (based on true events, or so they said) because that was slow and quite predictable. So I would have to credit the performance of the two leads. They were both so endearing that they actually made me care, even extracting a tear or two from me. Leo and Paige (Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams) are a hopelessly, obnoxiously happy couple. He owns a recording studio, she is an artist and life is great; they are even contemplating children. Everything changes when, while driving home one snowy Chicago night, they are slammed by a truck and both wind up in the hospital. Leo wakes up to find that Paige is in an induced coma, hoping that the swelling on her brain goes down. He spends every waking moment at the hospital, only to have her wake and not know him at all. In Paige’s world, she is back at law school, living with her parents in a very upscale neighborhood and engaged to a real slime ball. Somewhere and for some reason, she previously made a total break from this world and these people, and therein lies much of the story. Since she doesn’t remember what happened and this is the last life she remembers, that is where she feels safe. It is up to Leo to make her fall in love with him again. As I said, the story itself is not that great, but the performances are very good. McAdams especially is very convincing in her confusion and her anger and her fear. I’d forgotten how odious Sam Neill can be, but he certainly reminded me as Paige’s father and Jessica Lange is good in her role as Paige’s mother; I just didn’t care for the character. There are a couple brief sexual situations, a little nudity (his, not hers) and some minimal profanity, but certainly not much. I daresay teen girls especially will really like this, but speaking as a cynic on this subject, it’s not as sappy of a chick flick as I was afraid it would be.
