Bridge work to force detour on southbound US-31 in Petoskey
Gas leak leads to fire at downtown building Limited damage to exterior of Turkey’s Cafe At approximately 4:40 p.m. on Saturday, March 30 the Harbor Springs Area Fire Department responded to a natural gas leak at 250 East Main Street in Harbor Springs,home of Turkey’s Cafe and Pizzeria. “Our crew had located the source which was a gas leak near the meter at the back of the building,” said Dick Schiller, Chief of the Harbor Springs Area Fire Department. “While we were there something ignited the gas and caught the building on fire. We were able to contain the damage to the outside of the structure, other than a little water damage inside the building.” Upon extinguishing the fire DTE Energy crews arrived and were able to shut of the gas. “Everything went pretty well under the circumstances,” Schiller said. It could have been a major incident but luckily crews were already on scene. The snowfall from this winter was definitely a hindrance to us.” Electricity to the building was maintained, preventing spoilage of the foods inside the restaurant. Assisting on scene were Allied EMS, Redmond Friendship Cross Village Fire Department and the Harbor Springs Police Department.
Emmet County Group seeks to recognize local history efforts
526-6914 • State & Main
The annual Bowling on Main Street drew quite a crowd of people (and a dog or two) to the corner of Main and State Streets Tuesday, April 1. On the 20th anniversary of an event meant to celebrate how empty the town gets for spring break, it seems that it actually highlights how many folks are in fact here. There was even a wait for a lunch table at one of the nearby restaurants. No ‘Fooling’! (Photos by Mark Flemming)

Throughout Northwest Michigan, individuals, volunteers and organizations are protecting and preserving this region’s rich history in ways not often recognized by the public. But without these caretakers of our past, many stories that have defined this area of Michigan would be lost to the passage of time and memory. To recognize these extraordinary efforts in protecting, preserving and sharing our history, the Essence of Emmet – a local collaborative of organizations and individuals sharing an interest in our history – has announced it will begin an awards program. To be eligible for the awards, the recipient(s) must be individuals and organizations dedicated to the preservation, presentation and promotion of the history and -CONTINUED on page 6.
Rolling toward Spring...
After delays due to a longer and harsher winter than expected, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) was scheduled to begin work on US-31 and the Mitchell Street bridge in Petoskey on Wednesday, April 2. Work has now begun beneath the Mitchell Street bridge on the substructure, to be followed by construction on US-31 between Liberty Street and the Mitchell Street bridge. This work will require starting the detour of southbound US-31 traffic on Lake Street and Ingalls Avenue beginning April 2. Northbound US31 traffic will remain on US-31. “The extended cold weather has delayed the start of construction, but along with our contractors, we’ve set an aggressive revised schedule to get the majority of the project completed by the end of July,” said Matt Radulski, construction engineer for MDOT’s Gaylord Transportation Service Center (TSC). “Weather may result in additional delays, but at this point, that’s our goal for completion.” The project includes resurfacing and rebuilding US-31 from US131 to the Mitchell Street bridge, median construction, traffic signal work, bridge railing reconstruction, and bridge deck repairs. The entire project investment is expected to be $3.5 million. During construction, access will be maintained to businesses within the project limits. Access to McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital will be maintained at all times, and additional signs will be placed directing motorists to the hospital.

Highly Creative people are often drawn to work with different mediums, to expand their artistic knowledge as much as possible. Kristen Koehler, an artist who graduated from Harbor Springs High School in 2009, said she sees it all as part of life’s big adventure. During the summer of 2013, Koehler worked in the gallery at Boyer Glassworks in downtown Harbor Springs.

‘30 Years: Restoring the Balance of Justice’
Emmet County Prosecutor promotes awareness National Crime Victims’ Rights Week Submitted by Emmet County Prosecutor’s Office
Each year, the Emmet County Prosecutor’s Office staff and its Victim Witness Advocate work behind the scenes to help those who bear the burden of crimes: the victims. In the past year alone, that meant assisting over 1,000 victims with court appearances and events, referrals to supporting agencies and correspondences that are often the result of criminal actions. The Prosecuting Attorney renders services that range from referrals for counseling services to assistance in the collection of restitution for victims, as well as serving as their advocate through the judicial process. “The crimes affecting these local victims ranged in severity from simple larceny to homicide,” said Jim Linderman, Emmet County Prosecutor. “It’s important for the public to know that there are support services and a team in place to assist those who have experienced crime and its aftermath.” Each year, the Emmet County Prosecutor joins with the National Center for Victims of Crime to recognize National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, which is April 6-12, 2014. The theme of this year’s Crime Victims’ Rights Week is “30 years: Restoring the Balance of Justice,” which refers to the 30-year anniversary of the Victims of Crimes Act and its mission to fund crime victim compensation and victim assistance programs across the United States. “Millions of crime victims are helped each year and for them, it means that they are not alone to face the physical, mental and financial devastation of crime,” Linderman said. Before VOCA was passed in 1984, the world was a different place for crime victims, their families and communities. Local service providers who could meet victims’ needs for support, counseling or shelter were few. The criminal justice system often failed to recognize the victims’ need to be included in the justice process, and crime victim compensation programs were not consistently available and no source of support. For the past three decades, however, the Crime Victims Fund has provided support that is increasingly open, inclusive and flexible, Linderman noted. Over the years as well, the crime victims’ field has opened its doors to a wider range of crime
victims, including victims of color, those with disabilities, American Indian and Alaska Natives, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender victims, children exposed to violence, labor and sex trafficking victims, and victims of elder abuse. Services have become more readily available and allied professionals work together to make sure crime victims receive the help they need to move ahead with their lives. “Thirty years is not an invitation to rest on three decades of progress – although much has been accomplished – but a reminder of the work still before us to restore the balance of justice to all those harmed by crime,” said Linderman. He foresees the challenges ahead to include the growth in financial fraud and online victimization; the urgent need to address human trafficking; the increasing role DNA will play in justice for victims; and the ongoing work of reaching out to underserved victims, marginalized populations and those whose victimization is hidden or under-reported. With an aging population, the victimization of vulnerable adults is also an emerging concern. “We will continue on a local level to support victims of crime in whatever ways that we can, because as a community it is the right thing to do,” said Linderman. The National Center for Victims of Crime partners with the U.S. Department of Justice to raise the public’s awareness about the impact of crime on victims during National Crime Victims’ Rights Awareness Week. For more information about crime victims’ rights and witness assistance, visit the Emmet County Web site and the Prosecutor’s pages, at www.emmetcounty. org/prosecutor/. A toll-free directory of service providers for victims of crime is also available on the site. The Emmet County Prosecutor’s Office works closely with the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan, Inc., in providing victims’ services. Services, support, advocacy and counseling are provided to survivors of crime at no cost. The WRC’s 24-Hour Crisis and Information Line: (231) 347-0082 or (800) 275-1995 for long distance callers.
Are there words enough for how much we love our community? It was cold, it was slushy and it was the first weekend of Spring Break. We came, we set up and we waited....about five minutes before the first customer walked in the door to get fresh eggs and it was uphill from there. Our local support is outstanding and we appreciate it on every wintery Saturday morning. We’ve said good-bye to a couple of vendors as they headed to warmer climes but we have plenty of tasty treats still available. Fresh canneloni, manicotti, ravioli, noodles and pesto (is your mouth watering yet?), fresh eggs and delicious locally raised meats, fresh roasted coffee beans, scones and bread and cookies, maple syrup....all here just waiting for you. And don’t forget about Easter, it’s just a couple of weekends away and NOW is the time to get your ham. We will be open on the holiday weekend but the hams are frozen so don’t wait to get yours. Thinking about your side dishes, remember that Jib will have gluten free rolls and some other gluten/vegetarian treats to add to your feast. Oh, and did we mention that Mr. Regentin will be back after a week’s hiatus to learn more about helping bluebirds and their habitats? Yep, he will be ready to sharpen your knives and make your kitchen a safer place to be while you are dicing, chopping and carving! Open at the Middle School Saturday from 9 am - 1 pm.

Local mental health agencies forced to cut services due to state funding reductions Community mental health programs in the State have had 54% of State General Fund/General Purpose money cut effective April 1st. The agencies were notified of this reduction in a March 24 communication from the State Department of Community Health. Specific allocation communications were received by local CMH Directors on March 26. State funding is the only resource for persons without any form of government health care or insurance. The 54% reduction was pursuant to appropriation adjustments in P.A. 107, related to the Healthy Michigan program, and P.A. 34, the recent supplemental appropriation approved by the state legis-
lature in mid-March. “The assumption is that most of our clients will qualify for Medicaid or Healthy Michigan,” says Ed LaFramboise of Alpena, Director of Northeast Michigan Community Mental Health, “but we know that many won’t.” Eligibility requirements could be the problem. “Persons with Medicare aren’t able to apply, and that’s a problem,” says Greg Paffhouse of Traverse City, CEO of Northern Lakes Community Mental Health. “Many persons with serious and persistent mental illness, who absolutely require services, are Medicareonly clients, which means that State GF must be expended for their services, as Medicare does not cover everything we do.”
Record winter ice hurts shipping, may help tourism in U.P.
Hundreds of letters have been sent across the north notifying existing clients of the reduction. “It’s a painful thing to do,” says Kaczynski. “Access to services will be limited to this group.” Most funding received by community mental health agencies is Medicaid, according to Alexis Kaczynski, Director of North Country Community Mental Health, headquartered in Petoskey. “Last year, 82% of our funding was from Medicaid”, Kaczynski said. “Twelve percent was from State sources, but losing half of that is a catastrophe. There are a lot of demands on this resource.”

LANSING — The recordbreaking ice on Lake Superior is bad news for the steel industry but not for tourism in some parts of the Upper Peninsula. The Sault Ste. Marie locks opened as they do every year on March 25. But this was the first time since 2009 a boat didn’t pass through the very same day. The lack of boat traffic in 2009 was due to economic reasons. This year it is because of the ice, said Mark Gill, the U.S. Coast Guard director of vessel and trafficking services in Sault Ste. Marie. No boats passed through the locks on opening day because they hadn’t reached them yet. They are still trying to make their way across frozen Lake Superior. The delay could threaten jobs in industries that rely on transportation of raw materials across the Great Lakes, Gill said. Those are industries that rely on iron ore that is shipped from Duluth, Minn., to steel mills in Detroit and areas along Lake Michigan. If the boats are delayed another two weeks, workers at steel mills could be laid off, Gill said. The limestone industry is another industry that relies on Great Lakes freighters. According to steel companies, limestone is used to remove impurities from molten iron and without it, removing impurities requires a more expensive process that could lead to job losses, Gill said. A ship that recently passed through the St. Mary’s River -CONTINUED on page 4.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH firstname.lastname@example.org | 231.526.7842 We have had some beautiful weather lately, maybe just by comparison, but I have certainly enjoyed being able to walk the dogs without taking 20 minutes to gear up before going outside. I know that that this week is Spring Break and that probably explains a little of this, but it amazes me that when I am walking the dogs or driving around, I rarely see kids outside playing. After a winter like this, wouldn’t you think that everyone would be ready to

spend a little time enjoying Mother Nature rather than cursing her? On Sunday of last weekend, a lovely day, we saw four kids playing on a hill on the corner of Middle Road and M-119; that was it. Maybe that many more people ski or snow board, but they sure weren’t in their yards or at the playground or Kiwanis. As the snow begins to melt around the edges of the school, that was always an indication that “marble season” was about to begin. And whenever grass began to peek through, baseballs came out. You might not be able to play a game without a diamond, but we used to play a game where one person hit the ball to you, you were credited (for the purpose of the game only) a monetary amount depending on what you caught. A fly ball was the most, then a bouncer and finally a grounder. Some of us were talking a few weeks ago about playing Annie Eye Over or Eenie Ivy Over or some other variation. You picked a reasonably low building and had a team on either side. You would throw the ball over and if they caught it on the other side (honor sys-
tem, which didn’t work with some people), they would run around the building and throw the ball at you, you had to reach their side before that happened in order to be safe. If the ball didn’t make it over, you yelled “pigtails” and if they didn’t catch it, they would throw it back for your chance to catch it. Remember when you are a very little one, someone has to push you in the swing, but as you get a little bigger, you learn to pump your legs and make yourself go higher without assistance? Mastering that was such a milestone at the time, no more dependence on anyone. Then you learned to jump out of the swing on the forward arc, flying through space for a portion of a section and hopefully landing with all bones intact. Another perennial favorite for me was kickball because you didn’t have to be super athletic to play it. I’ve heard recently that kids are no longer allowed to throw the ball to tag someone and get them out; that would have ruined the game for me. I was enough smaller and slower that if I were made to run
them down and tag them, I would never have gotten anyone out. When I think of how fast Mark Clare and Richard Lasley and Laurie Beatty were, for example, that rule would have accomplished exactly the opposite of what I assume it is meant to do, to protect the smaller children. It would have taken all the fun out for a slower, smaller kid like I was. When the snow melted off the sidewalks, out came the chalk for hopscotch. You had to find a small, flat stone to toss into the squares because it was less likely to bounce or roll and then. This required balance more than athleticism, so I had a little better chance. We would have been dying to play hopscotch or jump some rope after this winter, anything to be outside. So, for the 20 or so of us that remain in town this week, let’s get outside and enjoy any day that isn’t 20-below and blizzarding. I can only speak for myself, but especially at this time of year, a part of me longs to be 10 again so I can be outside playing instead of sitting at a desk at work. On a far more serious note, our condolences to the fami-
was a wonderful day. This week, let’s begin on Thursday, April 3rd by wishing a Happy Birthday to Lisa Williams Dunlap, Lise Sampson, Trisha Witty and Madison Silveus. On Friday we offer out of town birthday wishes to Scott Moser and to my sister, Ruth Morse Vogel. Saturday, April 5th, Happy Birthday to Lyal Hankins and to Janet LaCount Richardson (another of my relatives, they’re never ending.) On Sunday I am happy to send birthday greetings to Wayne Chellis and to Monica Coveyou and on Monday to Diane Love, Archer Hogan, Debbie Banks Mueller and April Moore Washburn. Tuesday, April 8th, Happy Birthday to Mary Adams, Patrick O’Kenyon and Deb Greenwald and to end our week, Happy Birthday on April 9th to Randy Cole, Abigail Medley and Barb Rivard. Finally, let’s wish a Happy Anniversary to Bob and Judy Bernhart on April 5th and to Jerry and Wilma Tippett on April 9th.

took eight days, said Linda Hoath, executive director of the Sault Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. It normally takes a ship 12 hours to go through the river. Gill said the Coast Guard simply does not have enough resources to escort boats between the Great Lakes this winter. The U.S. and Canadian Coast Guards share 11 icebreakers in the Great Lakes Region–not enough to accommodate the extreme weather. They are usually only used to take boats across St. Mary’s River between Lake Superior and Lake Huron during the winter. This year however, icebreakers have had to escort ships the entire
way across the frozen lakes. “There are three boats out [in Lake Superior] right now with two icebreakers,” Gill said. Glen Nekvasil, vice presi-
dent of the Lake Carriers’ Association, said the Coast Guard can’t meet the demand of the industries. “This is an extremely difficult situation,” he said, “We

Cheryl passed away last week, there will be a memorial service on May 3rd at Stutsmanville Chapel and our thoughts and prayers go out to Leo and Barb Smith and to Mark and Amanda and to Cheryl’s daughter, Kelsey Galmore.

asked for more [federal] funding for icebreakers. They said we had adequate resources and now we don’t and I’m not denying that this is a bad winter, but now we need them now.” Things are looking up. Fortunately, warmer weather in the coming weeks could give the U.S. Coast Guard more flexibility, Gill said. Although the iron industry is getting the cold shoulder, this year’s winter is showing its softer side to tourism in some parts of the Upper Peninsula. Tourism in Sault Ste. Marie during the first two months of this year went up 3 percent from last year, Hoath said. Pat Black, director of the Marquette County Convention and Visitors Bureau, said tourism in Marquette is up
about 5 percent from last year. “We keep track of it by counting hotel rooms,” she said. “We are up from last year.” But Sault Ste. Marie and Marquette are exceptions, said Tom Nemacheck, executive director of the Upper Peninsula Travel & Recreation Association. Tourism in the Upper Peninsula on average has gone down this year. “A lot of our visitors that normally come are from areas that are seeing subzero temperatures this year,” he said. “No one in Lansing is going to say, ‘hey, let’s go Up North this weekend’ when it’s so cold down there they don’t want to leave their apartment.” The cities that are doing well usually have events or a recreational activity to attract people, he said.

passing of Paul Eugene Tippett 91. He died on March 23, 2014 at Bortz Health Care. Paul was born to Robert and Sarah (Brown) Tippett on July 29, 1922. He was the third of their eleven children. Paul began farming at the age of 17 when his father died and an uncle gave the family a cow to help them survive during the Great Depression. Five of his brothers served in Paul Tippett the military in WWII, but the draft board left him home to help support his mother and younger siblings. He was always grateful to the older/wiser farmers that gave him much needed advice when he was just starting out and, in his later years, tried to pass his knowledge on to anyone who asked. Paul believed in helping the community and was a member of many community groups and helped with many community projects. He married Dorothy “Evelyn” Schreier on October 17, 1959. Paul is survived by his wife Evelyn, children Larry and Sharrie, daughter-in-law Tina, grandson Justin with his wife Emily and their children Annabelle and Tylar. He is also survived by his siblings Jerry (Wilma), Carl (Agnes), Ellen Schreier and Mary Belle Gregory and by many nieces and nephews. Six of his brothers have preceded him in death, as well as many brothers- and sisters-in-law. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, your favorite charity or to Bortz Health Care as a thank you for the excellent care he received. A celebration of his life is being planned at a later date. And remember, a balanced diet is a cookie in each hand. Online memories and condolences may be shared at stonefuneralhomeinc.com.

McLaren offers program for children touched by cancer McLaren Northern Michigan is offering a program to provide emotional support to children (ages 5-12) who have a parent or other loved one diagnosed with cancer. The six-week program is called CLIMB®, which stands for Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery. Through CLIMB®, art and play activities help children to understand and develop coping skills. This free community service is funded by McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation. “The goal is to help children identify and express the complex feelings they may experience during this difficult time. If there is a child who may benefit from support in navigating their way through a loved one’s cancer diagnosis, please know this resource is available,” said Amy L. Juneau, an oncology social worker at McLaren Northern Michigan. Through CLIMB, children will learn:
• Cancer is “not their fault.” • They are not alone. • About cancer and treatment options. • How to express their feelings. • How to manage anger. • How to communicate effectively with loved ones with cancer. The program will take place from 5:30 - 7 p.m. on Mondays, April 14, 21, 28 and May 5 12 and 19 at the Community Health Education Center (CHEC) located across the parking lot from the main entrance to McLaren Northern Michigan. CLIMB was developed by The Children’s Treehouse Foundation, a non-profit foundation dedicated to the emotional support of children who have parents or grandparents with cancer. For more information or to enroll a child in the CLIMB® program, please contact Amy Juneau, at (231) 487-4015.

Week’s Low: Sun, March 30, 17F Week’s High, Mon, March 31, 48F We did make some progress this past week in the weather department and it was delightful! The weekend was great. We could actually feel spring in the air many found a sunny spot to just sit and enjoy. There has been a noticeable melting of snow piles, even though there is still a long way to go before they are gone. Of course, there are going to be relapses with predictions of rain, sleet, ice and snow over the rest of this week, but it doesn’t seem to be anything we can’t handle. Perhaps we will even see some grass before too long and those early spring flowers. It will be so appreciated after our long winter!!! Enjoy!

Petoskey Middle School Robotics team headed to regional championship The FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) North Super Regional Championship will be held on Thursday, April 3, 2014-Saturday, April 5, 2014 at The University of Iowa, Carver Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa. Seventy-two teams will compete for an opportunity to advance to the FTC World Championship which will be in St. Louis in April. Out of the over 830 registered FTC teams in the North Region (Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and West Virginia) the top 72 will be competing at the FTC North Super Regional Championship. Each team consists of up to 20 students in grades 7-12 in which the students work with adult coaches and mentors, to do hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning and develop 21st Century skills by designing, programming and building a robot. The teams and robots then work together to compete in matches. Petoskey Middle School Team #5411 (Geeks, Gears & Gadgets) will attend this event in Iowa City. The team of 20 7th and 8th graders was divided into four groups in the process of Notice getting their robot ready for competition. They have a Design Team, a Build Team, a Programming Team and a Media Team. After the G3 Robot was built, the team worked on other tasks including community outreach & fundraising which helped raise money for travel and expenses to support their efforts. They were particularly successful with their efforts in “Crowd funding”, which brought a new awareness of the team’s financial needs by tapping into a broader audience through social media. This type of internet fundraising turned out to be very well received by the local community, who shared the G3 story on Facebook and Twitter. In a short time the Team reached a new level of followers who gave generously. One of the biggest challenges they had was hosting the FTC Michigan State Qualifying Tournament. In early December G3 hosted 15 Teams from all over the state of Michigan. Seven Teams advanced to the State Championships in Marshall Michigan. G3 was successful in Marshall, winning the State Championship and a spot to go to the Iowa FTC Super Regionals. Along with winning, they were awarded the coveted “FTC Judges Award” To see more of FTC Team #5411, and its accomplishments, visit http://www.g3robotics.org.

Learning the art of glass from a downtown Harbor Springs creator -CONTINUED from page 1.
a year or so and move on. That’s also what’s happening now, and I’ve been lucky too, because it is usually by word of mouth.” “From a day-to-day perspective it is probably the most helpful,” Boyer said. “But they also help me learn. When I’m teaching them and showing them certain ways to do things, it makes me look at the way I do things. It makes me more attentive. They do it a different way, so it helps me to see it from a unique perspective. It becomes simpler and much more beautiful.” Koehler started with the basics and has continued to learn the glass art process along the way. “When I started in the studio I began with gathering glass. That involves using the blow pipe to pick up the glass inside the furnace. The furnace is heated to 2,000 degrees,” Koehler said. “It took me a long time to get used to the heat. That was a big challenge. It is definitely an intimidating thing to do because it feels very unnatural at first, dipping the pipe into something very hot that is very liquidy and hard to
control. I would gather the glass and take it to Harry so he could shape it.” Next she learned to pick up color with the gathered liquid glass. “The color comes from chips of glass. You have the hot clear glass on the rod and you dip it in bits of color. I’ve been working with Harry in picking out different color combinations,” Koehler said. “I think Kristen’s education definitely helps in this process, some people just have that already though,” Boyer said. “She helps me with the color design and she already has that skill set. She has her own aesthetic that goes along with that too. She has an opinion of what is beautiful and what goes together well. She can just see that in the world around her.” Koehler compares glass blowing with ceramics with the sense of motion involved in each process. “It’s similar to ceramics in the fact that you always have to keep the piece in motion, or spinning, to maintain the center of gravity. It is different because with the glass you can’t touch it. Sometimes you
just want to use your hands and make it into what you want but you obviously can’t do that because it’s really hot,” Koehler said. Although sculptural pieces are popular in both glass art and ceramics, she says she enjoys making the functional pieces more. “I like making functional stuff, which is the opposite of my photography degree. In photography you don’t have to make anything functional,” Koehler explained. She said she does enjoy the artistic approach as well. “I’ve gotten really good at making birds which is fun because now I have learned how to use the tools. I can sit at the bench and use the different tools to shape the glass and make these little bird sculptures,” Koehler said. “I’ve made a couple of bowls that vary in size and shape and I’ve made a couple of vases.” “I really like to make the vases because you actually get to blow the glass. People think that you blow everything, but with birds and paper weights there is no blowing. So that’s just a whole other challenge. I like to experiment with dif-
ferent shapes and colors for the vases and bowls.” But the process doesn’t end when the piece is blown or shaped. “When you make a piece it has to be put into an annealing oven to cool gradually so it doesn’t crack. That process happens overnight,” Koehler explains. “The next day you get to take out the piece and that is a fun surprise because it never turns out how you would expect. The colors shift from when its hot. It’s sort of like ceramics where you trim a pot after you throw it and apply different glazes. You never know how it will come out of the kiln. When the glass is hot all the colors look orange so you don’t really know what its going to look like.” Koehler also works on the final steps of the pieces before they go into the gallery with a process called cold work. “When you break off of the blow pipe it’s really sharp and jagged on the bottom. So I work in the back grinding the bottoms on a wheel with rough metal plates. It goes through three different stages of grinding until it’s flat and smooth on the bottom. Then I
polish the bottom, which is on another wheel. The process is time consuming but it is also very important because you want the object to sit flat on a countertop and not have any scratches on the bottom,” Koehler said. Almost the entire process of glass blowing and shaping can be viewed through the large window in the studio. “I think part of the reason Harry is so successful is because people get to watch him work. You have a good story to go along with your piece because you got to see it being made.” Kristen said learning something new each day, seeing those stories being created, is the best part about the job. “It’s great Harry is able to take on apprentices, and it’s nice because he appreciates the help. It is a lot of very physical work. I am sore when I leave.” “Right now I am in a transition period to my next adventure, so working for Harry is a good learning opportunity. Working for somebody in the art world, that is local, is great. It is the same with Three Pines,” Koehler said. “I’m not
really sure what I want to do next. Right now, I’m just trying to learn something new and take that knowledge and hopefully apply it to something else.” Boyer has also taken on Matt Skaggs as a second apprentice. “In the past I just had one, but when I have two it helps me with scheduling to always have someone around,” Boyer said. “I have had older apprentices in the past but I like having younger apprentices because they tend to be less reserved. The older you get, you see more dangers around. You are trained to not do things because of the heat and the younger apprentices are not set in those ways yet. They are much more willing to learn the process.” Boyer Glassworks is located at 207 State Street in downtown Harbor Springs.

Community Craft Night brings families together sharing food and traditional arts By Tamara Stevens Special to Harbor Light Newspaper
t’s another cold Monday evening during this seemingly endless winter. But inside the Little Traverse Bay Bands (LTBB) of Odawa Indians’ Government Complex building on Hathaway Road, mouthwatering aromas of homemade soups and casseroles fill the warm space. Women unpack craft tools and supplies, and begin to knit, do bead work, sort porcupine quills by size. Couples and families stream inside,carrying dishes to pass and friendly greetings for each other. Every other Monday evening is Community Craft Night and Pot Luck at the LTBB of Odawa Indians’ Government Complex. Hosted and organized by the LTBB’s Education Department staff, Craft Night is an opportunity for all members Dorothy Boda (left) shows her six-month-old granddaughter, Keilee Boda, how to drum on a hand drum of the community to get together at the Community Craft Night. Keilee’s mother, Tamara Richards, holds her daughter, while her older and socialize, share craft skills and daughter, Deanna Richards, (right) 10, watches.

The pot luck meal is free, and so are the lessons in crafting. “It’s fun to be social, especially during this long winter,” said Yvonne Keshick, who is working on an intricate porcupine quill clan symbol pendant. “We talk with each other and find out how each other and our families are doing. The food is the social glue, it brings everyone together.” The “social glue” is built around the main course, which tonight is three enormous pots of homemade soups: one scorched corn soup, one bean, and one hominy (white field corn), and traditional fry bread. The scorched corn soup is a traditional way of preserving corn long before refrigeration, said Theresa Chingwa, Cultural Specialist in the Education Department. Corn is scorched while it’s still on the husk outside over a fire, or it can be scorched in a pan. Then the corn is cut off the husk with a knife, and dried. Once it’s dried, it can be stored in airtight jars or bags. When it’s used in a soup, the smoky flavor of the scorched corn comes through and enhances the seasoning. Joan Tepkeah Jacobs made the hominy (white field corn) soup. -CONTINUED on page 5B.

The art of leftovers By Danielle Charles
If you are anything like me, you will typically find yourself, at the end of the week, opening the fridge upon a motley collection of forgotten ingredients. Leftover rice, a half of a zucchini, the chicken breast that got lost behind the carton of milk; these forsaken, weeknight meal refugees cower in the back of the fridge like frightened rabbits. You know, when you open the door, that they will be there waiting, and yet you still hope, against all reason, that they will somehow have disappeared of their own accord, so you won’t have to deal with them. Better people than I would see these forsaken scraps and be inspired. They wouldn’t see a shriveled tomato and gallon of unwanted beans; they would see a Spanish stew, or a surprise ingredient in a chocolate cake. But I, lacking anything resembling an imagination when it comes to leftovers, just end up throwing them into the compost. I sneak them out under cover of darkness, hoping nobody will see, half expecting my grandmother to jump out from behind a bush armed with photos of starving children. The shame is almost unbearable. So it came as a great relief when a friend recently passed a recipe onto me that was specifically designed for using up leftovers; a recipe that I can attest has irrevocably changed my status on those dreaded food scraps and altered my wasteful ways. My grandmother (and my conscience) can now rest easier. I say recipe, but the leftovers bowl is really more of a food philosophy than it is a recipe or a meal. It says, don’t look at the those helpless scraps of food as leftovers: see them as an allyou-can-eat buffet in your fridge; the components of a strange but fantastic salad bar just waiting to be gathered together. The idea is that anything, if still reasonably fresh, can be given a new lease on life simply by arranging it prettily in a bowl, sprinkling it with toasted seeds and a scattering of fresh herbs, and then smothering everything in a delicious dressing. Simple – yes, but also profound. To give you an example, I will tell you what I found cowering in my fridge this past weekend. There was the Tupperware of black beans that never made it into the chili they were intended for, the half a block of tofu from Wednesday’s Chinese dumplings, the wilting bunch of kale shoved to the back of the crisper. What might have ended up feeding the neighborhood fox a week before, was instead taken out of the fridge with a giddy excitement. I steamed the kale and warmed the beans in a pan. The tofu went into the oven with a marinade of soy sauce and sesame oil. I put on a pan of rice, which ironically, on this one occasion, was not already lurking in the fridge. But the real magic, I think, came with the toppings. The recipe my friend gave me called for an almond sauce, but I had tahini so I went with that. A little creamy tahini mixed with lemon juice and olive oil was all it took. I toasted a mixture of seeds – sesame, pumpkin and sunflower –- in a dry pan until they smelled wonderful and then sprinkled them with salt. Now I was ready for the transformation. I put the ingredients into my bowl, arranged in neat little piles. I sprinkled the seeds over the top. I drizzled the dressing over and, wallah! There were no leftovers in sight. Just a delicious looking meal that I gladly would have made any night of the week. And soon, there really were no leftovers in sight. I think the compost pile is going to feel very neglected from here on out.

Spring, Poetry and Glorious Nothings
pring is coming. Put your ear to the door. The trickle and plinks of snowmelt announce the beginning of April, and the chirping of the bird chorus is gaining volume. “Here comes the sun. Doodle, doodle”, is the song line that is looping through my brain these days. This Beatles’ song does not include the “doodle, doodle”. OfEmily Meier and Wally ficially, it’s a much more subtle “do, do, do, do.” But my mom sang it to us as kids on sunny days and the “doodle, doodle” was her interpretation, which has now become mine by default. I am not a winter person. I must have bear in my bloodline because every year when the days grow shorter and colder I begin to yawn, my brain gets foggy, and I go into a low energy mode of survival. It lasts for months. If I could climb into bed in the name of full hibernation, I would. But now there is this song of sunshine in my head again. The days are getting longer. We have survived. How appropriate that April, this time of awakening and renewal, is also National Poetry Month. National Poetry Month was first introduced in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry in the United States (since 1999 our Canadian neighbors have joined in the annual celebration as well). During the month of April, schools, libraries, booksellers, and poets ban together to celebrate poetry. It seems fitting that this concise, musical, genre is celebrated at a time when the grogginess of winter is fading. Poetry asks the brain to wake up, hear a beat, sing along, and listen closely to the weight of words chosen with great care. Poems ask our mind to work in conjunction with our heart and our senses. I can hear groans. When I was teaching college English courses the poetry section was always invariably met with groans followed by protests: “Why do we need poetry”, “Poetry makes me feel like there is a right and wrong answer to reading,” “I just don’t get poetry”. Sadly, I think that this is a reaction to poetry being mistaught for many years in the schools. Teachers presented students with a poem, asked for their interpretation, and then went on to correct them as if there were only one way of reading and hearing a poem. The poet, like any good writer, hopes to present an idea, character, moment, emotion and/or a visual landscape through specific language. This is done through thoughtful word choice and attention to the sounds of the language on the page. The poet hopes to evoke emotion and engage the senses. But what the reader brings to the poem is what completes the process. Award winning poet David Baker once shared with me a time when he read one of his new poems to an audience. It was about baseball, growing up, and losing a parent. Afterward, a woman in the

And she’s not wrong. Though maybe I should go back and rethink some of my wording,” he said. He liked to tell this story because, while it is an extreme example, it illustrates the point that art is open to interpretation and what we as readers bring to a poem, shapes our understanding of it. And that is not wrong. Celebrated poet Robert Haas told me that the rhythm of poetry is the most basic and natural of beats, likening it to the human heartbeat. “Readers shouldn’t over think it all. If you were in your mother’s womb, and I am assuming none of us arrived any other way, then you are familiar with the very basis of poetry. And if you were read to as a child, then you are already quite advanced, as most children’s books build on this same beat and rhythm,” he explained. So you see, you are a natural and poetry is in your blood. However, if you wake up more slowly to spring and feel timid about joining the full celebration of National Poetry Month this April, you are in luck. Three Pines Studio in Cross Village is exploring this very idea of poetry and interpretation in a special May exhibit. A recently published book of Emily Dickinson’s envelope poems entitled, Emily Dickinson The Gorgeous Nothings, lends the exhibition its title, Gorgeous Nothings. The book is a collection of the scraps of envelopes on which Dickinson scribbled lines, the beginnings and first drafts of her poems. In them, we see her process as a writer. We see the glimmer of the creative process at work. Joann Condino, owner and cofounder of Three Pines Studio, was inspired by this collection when she first read it last fall. “The poetry of Emily Dickinson’s envelope poems and their physicality reached out from the page,” she explained. By early winter,
Condino had a novel idea for a new exhibit. She decided to “gift” thirteen different artists each with a specific poem from the envelope poem collection. Each painter, collagist, sculptor, fiber artist, glass artist, ceramicist and photographer was asked to interpret and incorporate the poem he/she was given using their own creative vision and medium. Much like poetry, which creates parameters for the poet with rhyme, meter and poetic form, so this exercise asks these artists to work within a set of parameters. I asked Doug Melvin, one of the artists included in the show, how this affected his work. “Far from being constrictive, I usually find that parameters established for a given show, whether by theme, subject matter, or medium, are good springboards for a creative effort, and inspirational rather than confining,” he said. I asked Melvin to speak a little to his specific process in creating his piece for this show. “The poem Joann asked me to interpret mentions crickets, so the use of that as my main subject was obvious, and dovetailed nicely with my current work in sculptures of animals made from recycled metal parts and objects. It seems to me that “my” poem deals with the gap Dickinson felt between the artificial marking of the passage of time by our reliance on clocks, by which we regulate the trivia of our daily lives, and the more important cycles of natural time signaled by the arrival and later disappearance of crickets (and other natural phenomena, by extension). Here is one of the great values of our best poets -- to be quietly sensitive to aspects of our world that the rest of us are too busy and animated to notice,” he explained. I have been given a glimpse of Melvin’s finished work as well as some of the other artist’s creations that have come from this experiment. They are inspiring, inventive, and wonderfully creative. “The variety of expression in the various artistic media will make for a beautiful and interesting show. And, could serve as a gateway for viewers and artists to explore and enjoy more of Dickinson’s works,” Melvin said and to which, I couldn’t agree more. I am excited for this show and proud that our community supports and celebrates the arts in such creative ways. April may be National Poetry Month but here in the North it looks like May is going to be just as much of a celebration thanks to Three Pines Studio and all the participating artists. “Poetry is important…to the Florentines of Dante’s time and to the hipsters of our time. Poetry paints, sings, whispers, texts, and twitters. Walt Whitman probably would have liked Facebook because it is a portrait of all of us,” Condino explained in a final word. I hope that some of my past students are finding the connection between poetry and the modern world as well. For poetry, in all its interpretations, is welcome here…doodle, doodle.

Community Craft Night brings families together -CONTINUED from page B1.
“Everybody makes hominy soup differently,” Jacobs said. She used a mix of yellow and white corn, kidney beans, and pork, because it’s off season for venison or elk. “It’s always a potluck,” said Jannan Cotto, Director of the LTBB Education Department. “We provide a main dish and people bring side dishes. This gives people the opportunity to come together and share their culture with each other.” The Community Craft Night and Pot Luck is one of many activities that the Education Department provides in its Cultural Services programs. Cultural Services works with LTBB citizens, descendants, and community partners to provide cultural education for the benefit of both tribal and non-tribal community members and educators, said

As Keshick sorts through handfuls of porcupine quills looking for similar-sizes for her clan symbol pendant, she explains how hers is the turtle clan, or Nissawaquat, which means “fork in the tree.” Her mother’s clan was the water snake, out of Cross Village. She’s still doing research to determine which clan her father belonged to. When she finds out his clan, she’ll make a pendant with his clan’s symbol, she said. Keshick’s been creating intricate quill pendants and boxes since 1970. The quills come from friends, hunters, and the tribe’s Department of Natural Resources. She can complete a small quill box in about one week. She introduces four genera-

“I never didn’t know how to do it,” Naganashe said. “My father did it, and my grandfather did it.” When the drumming and singing begins, couples hold hands and slowly dance around the ceremonial circle fire in the center of the large community room. Children walk up to the drummers, transfixed by the sounds. Women join in the drumming and shake rattles in rhythmic time with the songs beat. Young drummers are shown by elders how to properly keep the beat. The fellowship of the evening is palpable as crafters continue working. After about an hour of drumming, everyone claps and applauds the musicians. Those who were creating, knitting, doing quill work begin packing up their supplies. Hugs are exchanged and farewells are waved across the room. Coats are buttoned up as they head out into the dark night, warmed by a celebration of roots, a passing of knowledge, and the connection of shared experience. The LTBB Community Craft Night and Pot Lucks are held every other Monday evening from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the LTBB of Odawa Indians Government Complex at 7500 Odawa Circle off Hathaway Road just west of Pleasantview Road.

tions of her family who are attending Craft Night: her uncle, Simon Otto, her niece, and her granddaughter. After most people have had their dinner, many hands pitch in to clean up and divide the leftovers into carry out containers. Hand-held drums are displayed on a table. The drummers explain their designs and patterns to curious children. Some of the drums are round, while others are octagon-shaped. Deer hide is stretched over a wooden frame and fastened with narrow strips of deer hide that are used as thread to attach the drum surface to the frame. The sinew forms a handle on the back of the drum, which is as unique as the front. Patterns on the drum’s surfaces result from where the deer fur was burned off the hide. Some are intricately painted by artists. One drum has a dark pattern in an area, but nowhere else on it. That’s the blood mark from when the deer was shot, explains Michael Naganashe, a drummer. “Every drum has a different sound,” Naganashe said. “Each one is unique.” Naganashe’s drum was made by his cousin, Aaron Otto, who is also a drummer. Naganashe and the other 10 to 12 drummers who are here this evening form the War Club and Spirit Lake drum groups. They travel throughout the state and the country drumming together at pow wows. “We’ll be in Indiana this coming weekend,” Naganashe said. “Then next week in Missouri, then Wisconsin, then we’ll be in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the Gathering of Nations.” Naganashe has been playing drums since he was born, he said.

Noah After the first few minutes, I couldn’t help but think of the old ad campaign from the eighties; this is The Bible, this is The Bible on drugs. After a few minutes, I was wondering if they were serious. Rather than the biblical epics that we grew up with, this telling of the story of Noah was a mixture of Mad Max and The Lord of the Rings. I was conflicted going in, I had heard that they played a little fast and loose with the story and as much as I hate the way Hollywood does that with all their “based on a true story” movies, I really didn’t want to see it done with this story. The other side of me thought if they need to dress it up with special effects and giant rock creatures in order to get an audience into the theater where they will hear the story, maybe it is worth it. I stayed and I’m glad that I did. Was this the story of Noah that I grew up hearing? BasiTuesdaycally Sunday it was but there were some interesting and curious additions in there. I must have missed hearing Openthrown at about5:00pm a stowaway on the Ark and I truly don’t remember the fallen angels in the shape of large, stone creatures, for Located 12as miles north of Harbor Springs andBible 11/2 miles example. But my husband reminded me, the does south of Cross Village, on State Road refer to giants; maybe this is just an interpretation.
