Waiting for spring...


Winter weather has been good for ski areas By Jessica Evans Harbor Light Newspaper

Compared to last year, when the area was seeing multiple 80 degree days in March and had a relatively mild winter overall, this season northern Michigan received its fair share of snow and cold temperatures, which boded well for local ski areas. According to Erin Ernst, public relations manager for BOYNE, it has been a great winter season for both Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain. “We finished the season up compared to last year at Boyne Highlands. The winter season at Boyne Mountain is still on-going with skiing and snowboarding available on weekends,” Ernst said. She noted traditional winter weather this year has made a difference in the amount of traffic Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain saw throughout the season. “The weather this year was definitely a factor that contributed to increased business levels,” she said. “We heard repeatedly all season long how fantastic the conditions were.” Last year, while Boyne Highlands was able to stay open for their annual spring Krazy Daze event, they were forced to close on March 20, a few days earlier than normal due to unseasonably warm weather. This year, the resort had no trouble making it to their March 24 close date and was also able to open for their 15th Annual Spring Board Meeting, a terrain park event which took place on April 6 and 7. “Boyne Highlands strives to be the first resort in Michigan to open each season, and Boyne Mountain is one of the last resorts to be open in the spring offering skiing and riding for as long as quality conditions allow,” Ernst said. “Since all our season passes and lift tickets offer skiing and riding at both resorts, this allows for the opportunity to enjoy a great long season on the slopes.” Jim Bartlett, general manager of Nub’s Nob ski area, also noted that business was up this season. “We had a great year,” he said. “It wasn’t a record-breaker, but it was much better than last year and probably the best we’ve seen since 2008.” Last year, due to the warm temperatures, Nub’s Nob was forced to close their doors early. The ski area closed March 22, two days prior to their annual Mardi Gras event. This continued on page 12

With temperatures still hovering in the 30-40 degree range, everyone and everything is still waiting for spring. While starting to break up, ice remains within the bay. The past winter was a good one for area ski resorts (see related story) and the snow levels should help somewhat with low lake levels.




Namesake of Zorn Park, longtime priest and resident of Harbor Springs will buried here this summer 130 years after his death Harbor Light Newspaper


Father Philip Zorn, the namesake of Zorn Park in downtown Harbor Springs, served as priest of the Holy Childhood of Jesus Church on Main Street from 1862 to 1884, and will be re-interred here in June. Father Zorn’s life and his journey back to northern Michigan will be the topic of discussion at the next Inventory Harbor History Talk, hosted by the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society Clearance on April 18, at 5:30 p.m. According to Father Francis Patridge, of the AugusMen and Women tine Center at the Sacramentine Monastery in Conway, who will be presenting at the Harbor History Talk, Zorn Hilda made a lasting impact not only in Harbor Springs, but winter hours 11-5 also much of northern Michigan. “Harbor SpringsMon-sat was the main church up here at the time,” Patridge explained, “so the majority of the other address area churches were under phone his domain. Churches in Petoskey to as far away as Beaver Island and Suttons Bay were all stations he was responsible for.” A German immigrant, Philip Zorn had come to

Bishop Frederic Baraga who was operating a mission in the area, was thrilled to have additional help in ministering to the residents here at the time, Patridge said. After a year of training, Father Zorn was ordained in 1856 and following this, served as priest at the Holy Cross Parish in Cross Village. “After a year, though, Bishop Baraga moved Zorn to Harbor Springs, since he had a little more pizazz than the priest who was currently there,” Patridge said. “Zorn was extremely capable and Harbor Springs was the larger of the two parishes.” Zorn worked closely with the Native American population and in time, learned their language. According to Partridge, Zorn was highly respected by the Native Americans and was given the native name Wassigijig, which means bright or heaven. continued on page 9

Mackinac summer means new businesses, exhibits

American Life in Poetry

By Edith Zhou


Capital News Service

New businesses, new history exhibits and new members of the Mackinac Island State Park Commission kick off the island’s approaching tourism season. Named as the 8th mostpristine destination island in the world by National Geographic, Mackinac Island attracts more than 1 million visitors each year, according to the Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau. As the second-largest industry in the state, tourism brings in more than $17 billion annually, according to a report from Michigan State University. Mary McGuire, executive director of the bureau, said several new businesses that offer recreational activities will open this season, including Great Turtle Kayaking, Green Planet Extreme Kayaking Tours and Spirit of the North Yoga. “The businesses here do all they can to update each season. There are only a few communities in the world that open and close so many businesses each year,” McGuire said. Kelsey Schnell, the public relations and marketing officer at Mackinac State Historic Parks, said the parks also have new things happening this season, including special exhibitions and anniversary activities. “This June marks the 250th anniversary of the attack at Fort Michilimackinac by Native American warriors, so a newly reconstructed rowhouse and two new exhibits will help relay that story as part of the commemoration,” Schnell said. According to Schnell, the new rowhouse, in Mackinaw City, was reconstructed after years of archaeological excavation and research. It features two exhibits, one of which includes an authentic stone fireplace ruin from the original structure. The other exhibit will showcase a short film depicting the attack and events leading up to it. “And Fort Mackinac interpretive programs will

continue to highlight the anniversary of the War of 1812, so daily demonstrations of military uniforms and musket firings will take place on the island throughout the summer months,” he said. McGuire said the parks are working hard on different ways to attract more visitors. “We are primarily a wordof-mouth place, so the social media has been wonderful,” she said. Television shows feature the island such as the CBS Early Show, and the bureau is also a partner in the state’s Pure Michigan campaign. “I will continue to work towards bringing television and film crews to Mackinac, as well as travel writers, because being featured and written about has always had longer- lasting results for us since the reader views the articles with more credibility,” McGuire said. Recently, Gov. Rick Snyder announced the appointments of Mary Callewaert of Mackinac Islan, and William Deary of Jackson to the Mackinac Island State Park Commission. The commission’s seven members oversee operations and maintenance of Mackinac State Historic Parks.

“The businesses here do all they can to update each season. There are only a few communities in the world that open and close so many businesses each year.” Mary McGuire Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau Executive Director “I feel honored to be appointed. I have been up on the island all my life and I am familiar with the environment,” Callewaert said. Callewaert’s family owns many Mackinac Island businesses, including Ryba’s Fudge Shops, Island House, Pancake House and Mary’s Bistro, and she also serves as a Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau board member. “All the work I have been doing these years will help me to do my job for the commission,” Callerwaert said. “I have a lot to learn before I start my work. I will try my best to attract more people here and

share the island’s beauty with the world.” The current chair of the commission, Dennis Cawthorne of Mackinac Island and Lansing, and secretary Barry Goodman of Southfield are leaving after their terms end this month. Cawthorne has been the chair for more than 18 of his 22 years of service. He said his accomplishments include support of the refurbishment and reopening of Old Mackinac Point Light House, creation of Historic Mill Creek Discovery Park, opening of Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum, reconstruction of buildings at Colonial Michilimackinac and rebuilding the 220-year-old stone walls of Fort Mackinac. Callewaert and Deary will serve six-year terms that expire April 12, 2019, and their appointments are subject to Senate approval.

There’s something wonderful about happening upon a musician playing for his or her own pleasure, completely absorbed in the music. Jeff Daniel Marion is a fine poet from east Tennessee. And here’s a woman playing the bagpipes.

Playing to the River She stands by the riverbank, notes from her bagpipes lapping across to us as we wait for the traffic light to change. She does not know we hear— she is playing to the river, a song for the water, the flow of an unknown melody to the rocky bluffs beyond, for the mist that was this morning, shroud of past lives: fishermen and riverboat gamblers, tugboat captains and log raftsmen, pioneer and native slipping through the eddies of time. She plays for them all, both dirge and surging hymn, for what has passed and is passing as we slip into the currents of traffic, the changed light bearing us away.

Letter to the Editor Conservancy land open to public To The Editor: I am writing to correct an error in a story by Michael Gerstein about land conservancies and state land. Mr. Gerstein stated that the Little Traverse Conservancy “guards in the neighborhood of 44,000 acres in the Lower and Upper Peninsulas, although the majority isn’t open for public use.” In fact, the majority of the land we have protected is indeed open for public use! Every acre owned by Little Traverse Conservancy is open to the public. Every acre that we have helped to secure for local, state and federal park and recreation agencies or universities is open to the public. The only protected land not open for public use includes the privately owned farms and forests over which we hold conservation easements. These easements protect public values, such as scenic views from public roadways, wildlife habitat, ecologically significant wetlands and other features which are of value to the public even without physical access. These constitute less than half of our total protected acreage. Thank you for this opportunity to clarify the matter and to be sure that the public is invited to visit and enjoy our nature preserves and the land we have helped local, state and federal agencies to acquire for public recreation and nature study.

Woman rescued after kayak tips in icy harbor

Officers from the Harbor Springs Police Department, along with the Harbor Springs Fire Department and and Allied EMS, responded to a report on Saturday, March 30 of a local woman who had tipped her kayak in the harbor and had fallen into the water. At about 3 p.m., the Harbor Springs Police Department responded to the 911 dispatch call of a tipped kayak, said Harbor Springs Police Officer Steve Timmons. Three women were attempting to kayak to Harbor Point and were approximately two-thirds of the way across the harbor when the incident occurred.

“When we realized how far out they were, we knew that launching any rescue attempt from shore wouldn’t work,” explained Timmons. Rescue options were considered including a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and a hover boat, offered by the Pellston Fire Department. Petoskey Police Department also had a dinghy that was available for use to access the kayaker. The solution was found locally, however, as a workboat from Walstrom Marine was used to make the rescue. “We were able to pull her from the water and get her back to Walstrom’s where Allied EMS stepped in to assess her condition,” Timmons said. “We then returned to

pull her kayak out of the water and to make sure the other two women got back to shore ok.” Timmons stated that there is still a fair amount of ice on the harbor. He noted that the women had been breaking the ice with their kayaks as they paddled toward Harbor Point. The woman who fell in the water, was in for 20 to 25 minutes, he said. “When we pulled her from the water, she could still speak to us, but was in the beginning stages of hypothermia, which is nothing to overlook,” he said. According to Timmons, there is always the potential for danger when going out on the water with temperatures

being so low. “I’m not a kayaker myself, but I do know there is always the possibility of tipping when you go out. Water temperatures right now are not even above freezing and staying in water that cold for any length of time can bring someone’s body temperature down very quickly.” Timmons said following the rescue, he believed the woman was taken to the hospital. He noted the response of all agencies involved was essential in completing the rescue successfully. “Everyone worked together really well and in doing so, was able to offer a positive solution to this incident,” he said.

Out of that, I will only maybe keep one gallon for myself.” Gay will introduce audience members to the basics of beekeeping during his lecture.

United Way reaches 95 percent of goal; $70 for 70 Years drive launched Char-Em United Way announces that it has reached 95% of its 2012-2013 Campaign goal, with only one month left to go in the campaign. “As we mark our 70th anniversary in the Charlevoix and Emmet community, we are encouraging our supporters to donate “$70 for 70 years” to help us reach our $425,000 goal by the end of April,” says Steve Andreae, United Way Board President. “We have an online fundraising page for contributions honoring our anniversary at http://www. help-us-celebrate-70-years .” The Frey Foundation has offered an additional $30,000

challenge grant to United Way to match new and increased gifts. “We are very motivated by the Frey Challenge,” says Andreae. “With the human service needs so great in our community right now, we hope to be able to reinvest the maximum amount back into the services people need.” “This year, the number of funding requests from local agencies and the amount of funds requested is greater than ever – almost $80,000 more than last year,” continues Andreae. “I encourage everyone who has not donated to the Campaign to make a donation now, before the end of April.

Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 First, let me acknowledge that sometimes my mind doesn’t exactly function normally; I find very strange thoughts popping in, unbidden, at inappropriate times. This happened last Sunday while I was in church. The sermon was about Thomas and his doubts and suddenly I wondered, can you imagine if they called each other by diminutive or affectionate names. I mean absolutely no disrespect or sacrilege by this, but it just wouldn’t have been the same to call the disciples Tom, Pete or Paulie. I tried to do some research and see when it became

common place to shorten or otherwise change names. As near as I can tell, many of the shorter names may have originated in Europe, but common use was an American thing that began in the 1800’s. By then we had Buffalo Bill and Tom Sawyer; I don’t recall reading about Bill Pitt or Sir Tom Moore. I wonder how much of an influence Teddy Roosevelt had on this trend. Teddy worked well for him, but I doubt that his distant cousin would have been as efficient as Frankie or even Frank. Ole’ Bill Shakespeare (just doesn’t work) may have said, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” but would the story of Jules and Ro really have struck a chord? Prince Ham of Denmark speaking with his friend ‘Tio? Sorry, Bill, it’s just not the same.

Some short versions make perfect sense, like Tom for Thomas or Jon for Jonathon. Others are a little more confusing. I’ve never understood why Jack is a nickname for John. A little research and I found that in medieval times, John was altered in the Germanic to Jackin or Jankin. Another mystery, at least in my mind, is why the shortened version of Richard became Dick. Apparently the Normans had a peculiar pronunciation of the “r” in Richard and when the English attempted to mimic them, it came out sounding like a “d” instead of an “r”. The relationship between Henry and Hank is a little stranger. Hank is also derived from Hankin, a form of Jankin, and it was originally another nickname for John. It’s really unclear when it came to be associated with Henry instead

people had called her Lisa most of her life. It is worth the effort to take the time and have the courtesy to get names right. For the current generation who likes to drop syllables from words (prolly does NOT mean probably,) it’s kind of ironic that it seems more of them are particular about using full, given names. There seem to be many more Michaels around than Mikes, more Susans than Susies, more Catherines than Cathys; that’s kind of a nice change. We lost Margaret Thatcher this week. Would she have commanded the same respect as Maggie? I think not. Nicknames are fine for people you know well, but for those in the public eye or someone you have just met, the respect of a given name is nice. Now let’s get to some birthdays, some special ones this

of John. I’ve never understood how Margaret became Peggy, but apparently Megan was the Welsh version of Margaret and Peg and Meg were the shortened versions of Megan. Sarah being changed to Sally was probably another case of mispronunciation by the English when trying to pronounce Norman names. It’s probably considered an act of affection to use a shorter, more personal version of a name, but for many people, it’s not received that way. I’ve mellowed enough with age that I no longer take umbrage when called Cindy, but I’ll never get used to it nor accept it comfortably, either.

We still have loads of fresh, delicious greens and the homemade dressings to go with them, locally raised meats for those of you brave enough to fire up the grill on Saturday night and eggs, pancake mixes and maple syrup for a cozy Sunday breakfast. Remember, everything tastes better when it’s made by your friends and neighbors! Applications have gone out for the summer market and if you were a previous vendor or asked for an application this winter it will be in your mailbox soon. If you weren’t or didn’t, stop by and talk to us about what you would like to offer ~ we can let you know if it’s something we have on our wish list and give you an application. We are getting pretty full and are only looking for products that we do not currently offer. Just a reminder, though...we don’t do crafts and we are NOT a cottage law market.

For Week: 4/10/13


POD Collection Events are scheduled for: • Tuesday, April 23 from 10am – 4pm. McLaren Northern Michigan, Cheboygan Campus (Entrance North of the Emergency Department) • Thursday, April 25 from 7am – 4pm McLaren Northern Michigan, Petoskey Campus (Hospital Circle Driveway - Entrance off Mitchell Street across from Johan’s Bakery) • Saturday, July 27 from 9am -12pmEmmet County Drop-Off Center (7363 Pleasantview Road, Harbor Springs) • Saturday, September 7 from 9am -2pm Boyne City Road Commission Garage (Just east of the Boyne City Public School football field) • Thursday, October 24 from 7am – 4pm McLaren Northern Michigan, Petoskey Campus (Hospital Circle Driveway - Entrance off Mitchell Street across from Johan’s Bakery) Properly disposing of unused medicines at POD collection events reduces the risk that prescriptions will be mishandled and end up on the street, prevents avoidable poisoning of both children and adults, and prevents contamination of water resources. Residents are encouraged to bring prescription medicines and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals to any of the POD collection events. We

request that residents keep the medicines in the original container for easy identification of the medicine but erase or black out all personal information from the prescription bottles. The POD events are unique in the area in that they accept all prescription drugs, including those classified as controlled substances. Pills, liquids, ointments, lotions, and even pet medications are all accepted at the events. The service is being organized and paid for by a group of leading local institutions united in their concern about the public health, public safety, and environmental effects of holding on to, flushing, or landfilling unwanted drugs. Group members include McLaren Northern Michigan, Emmet County Household Chemical Drop-off Program, Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, Harbor Area Regional Board of Resources (HARBOR), Inc, Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council, Petoskey Department of Public Safety, Cheboygan County Sheriff, Charlevoix County Recy-

cling Program, Charlevoix County Conservation District, Charlevoix County Sheriff Office, Charlevoix County Road Commission, City of East Jordan Police Department, Northwest Michigan Community Health Agency, Emmet County Sheriff, Prescription Services Pharmacy, Charlevoix Area Hospital, and Central Drug Store. In addition to collection events, residents may also dispose of pharmaceuticals at permanent POD Drop Boxes located at law enforcement agencies throughout Northern Michigan. For the locations of the POD Boxes, visit www. For more information contact Jennifer McKay at Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council at or 231-347-1181.

Good news!

A couple of weeks ago we reported on a lost dog, Sandy, whose family is from Ohio. They were visiting in the area when Sandy got loose and ran off. A search began but there was no sign of her before her owner had to return to Ohio. The search continued, however, thanks to help from Facebook, Twitter, print messages and more. Time passed, the search continued and Sandy’s family returned to continue looking for her. On Monday morning, after 18 days, Sandy was found and returned to her very grateful owner. “She was skin and bones but she is okay,” was the report.” Thank you so much to everyone who helped bring this to a happy ending!!

Weather HighLights WEEK’S HIGH On Sun., April 7


WEEK’S LOW On Sat., Apr. 6


Welcome back to those returning from spring break. Our weather is probably not what you hoped to see. You didn’t miss anything - we have had a hard time even reaching the high 30s and there have been periods of rain, sleet, snow, a little sun but very little warmth. We have lost most of the snow, but predictions for the rest of the week are for more of the above. We do have to remind ourselves that it is still early April in northern Michigan. Spring is just around the corner and April showers bring May flowers. The birds are singing, the early spring crocuses are working hard to pop up and our winter travelers are returning. Hopefully they will bring spring! Weather highlights brought to you weekly by:

People Local resident named 2013 National Project Learning Tree Outstanding Educator By Jessica Evans Harbor Light Newspaper

Growing up in Chicago in the late 1970s, Maureen Stine was about as removed from nature as she could be. This could not be further from the truth today. These days, the Indian River resident works as a conservation educator and Farm Bill specialist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) in Onaway, where she assists private landowners throughout six counties in northern Michigan in protecting and conserving healthy forests in the region. Stine also runs her own business, Natureology, where she creates environmental education programs for children and offers professional development opportunities for teachers, parents and group leaders. She also volunteers on the USDA Earth Team, which provides educational education to students k-12 and training opportunities to teachers. Additionally, she is the co-chair of the Getting Kids Outdoors in Emmet County, is the Michigan Green Schools program liaison for Cheboygan, Otsego, and Presque Isle Counties, and a member of the Leadership Team for the Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative. It goes without saying that Stine is an avid supporter of promoting and sustaining environmental education efforts in northern Michigan. Because of this, she was recently honored as the 2013 recipient of the National Project Learning Tree Outstanding Educator for her efforts in environmental education. Project Learning Tree (PLT), is the national environmental education program of the American Forest Foundation, which is sponsored by the Michigan Department

of Natural Resource (DNR). Stine will be honored at the PLT’s 27th International Coordinators Conference, April 29-May 2. “I’m extremely humbled by this,” Stine said. “There are so many great people in Michigan working in this field and to be selected from all of those folks is a wonderful feeling.” Stine noted that perhaps more than anything, she is grateful that this award has brought national attention to the Michigan Project Learning Tree program. “It’s an honor, and this award has brought national recognition and interest to this program, which is great,” she said. Stine uses PLT activities and service-learning opportunities to provide meaningful experiences for students of all ages with an emphasis on trees, soils, and water quality issues. She recently guided 125 students on the Cheboygan River to test temperature and pH, gather macroinvertebrates, and remove monofilament fishing line from the river banks. The students are now working on a public awareness campaign and installing trash receptacles and interpretive signage to edu-

cate others about the dangers to wildlife from improperly discarded fishing line. Stine said she particularly enjoys working with children and educating them about conservation issues and the environment. “Working with kids is what I was put on this earth to do,” she said. “I find it so fulfilling to watch students discover new things. I believe in selfdiscovery and often the kids end up showing me things. Working with them feeds my energy and they’re so fun to watch when they’re learning something new.” Stine noted she hopes environmental education will become mainstream within public schools, as it is an important way for children to learn and grow, she said. “In the 1900s, almost all kids were involved in some form of environmental education, and I think that in today’s technology driven world, kids are spending more time indoors and less time outside engaging in free exploration of nature,” Stine said. Stine noted northern Michigan offers endless opportunities to those involved in her field of work and she is grateful for the numerous partnerships she has formed with local organizations over the years. “Partnerships in northern Michigan are incredibly important to have and organizations like Getting Kids Outdoors, Sturgeon for Tomorrow, and the Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative are all important ways we network and bring people together. There are so many opportunities for us to help out within our communities in this field, and I’m glad to be part of that. This is truly a labor of love.”

North Central to host tours of new building continued from page 1

The project, which cost 10.4 million, was partly paid for by funds raised, with state dollars and bonds, and without placing any burden on Emmet County taxpayers. Harris contributed a substantial portion of the funds to build the new

facility. “It’s a beautiful building and will provide a lot of opportunities for students, faculty and staff and the college as a whole,” said North Central Michigan President Cameron Brunet-Koch. “We’re very thankful to Jack Harris ev-

eryone who has contributed to the development of this building.” For more information about the open house or North Central Michigan College, call 231-348-6840.

New nature preserve established A large tract of land was recently donated to Little Traverse Conservancy as the Hymas Woods Nature Preserve. The new preserve is near Pickerel and Crooked lakes, which are in turn part of the large Cheboygan River Watershed. The Hymas Woods Preserve complements other nearby lands to provide water quality protection, wildlife habitat, and scenic open space. Scott and June Hymas first discovered Michigan when their daughter, Kim Shomin, married a Petoskey native. When Kim’s husband unexpectedly died in 1990, Scott and June made more regular trips to help Kim and her two young sons. Eventually, they purchased land adjacent to Kim’s and built a home where they could stay during their long summer visits. Over the next several years, more acreage was added and they acquired three parcels which now, together, comprise the 149-acre preserve. “I had always dreamed of owning my own forest,” June said. “I think the thing that really made us decide was the bald eagle nest in a tall snag in the meadow north of Coors Road.” Early on, the couple joined the Petoskey Regional

Audubon Society and through it, began visiting some of LTC’s other preserves. They also began to learn about the beauty of northern Michigan. “More and more, we observed the wildlife that was using the meadows and woods around us,” June explained. “Hognose snake, deer, wild turkeys, a pair of coyotes, barred owls, pileated woodpecker (along with four other woodpecker species), marsh marigolds, trilliums, and many others. Sandhill cranes came down in the field often after we mowed the meadow.” June also pointed out the diversity of habitats found on the new preserve including wetlands, cedar bog,

maple forest, aspen groves, conifer-mixed woodlands, and open meadows. “We even found a seasonal pond with turtles and frogs. The more we looked, the richer and more interesting it was,” she said. LTC land protection specialist Ty Ratliff noted that June and Scott truly had preservation in mind from when they first began buying this property. “In dedicating this preserve for the use of the native wildlife of northern Michigan, we hope to honor both the local Native American heritage of our grandsons and the lives of the loggers and homesteaders who also lived on this land,” June said.

Jack Hobey, author of the Lost Boys: The Beulah Home Tragedy, will share information from his book at the upcoming Friends at the Carnegie presentation on Monday, April 22 at 7 p.m. (Courtesy photo.)

Friends at the Carnegie present Lost Boys: The Beulah Home Tragedy

Old Mission Church, as it was originally called before being re-named Holy Childhood of Jesus Church, sat in the same location at the end of Main Street as it does today. There was some effort made to change the location when the church was rebuilt in order to straighten Main Street, however the current structure was build over the old one, so Main Street stayed the same. The church that stands today is possibly the fourth version of the mission church. Catholic priests came to the area as early as 1691 to begin missionary work with the native Odawa population.

Father Philip Zorn returns to Harbor Springs continued from page 1

Most Harbor Springs residents are only familiar with the name Zorn because of Zorn Park, located on Bay and Main Streets. The property which is now Zorn Park was once owned by Father Zorn and it’s thought that’s where his residence was located. Following his death, the land was given to his brother who later sold it to the city of Harbor Springs. In 1884, Zorn was sent to another Native American church in Elbridge, Michigan and ministered there for the remainder of his life. In 1900, he fell ill and was taken to the Catholic hospital in Manistee where he died on April 14 of pneumonia. He was buried in Manistee, much to the curiosity of Patridge. “They just ended up burying him where he died,” he said. “It didn’t make sense, because they didn’t even really know him in Manistee. He was never stationed there. Why wasn’t he buried in Elbridge where he was serving? Or Cheboygan where he had relatives or Harbor Springs where he lived for many years?” Partridge noted that lack of finances on the part of Zorn’s family is what most likely kept them from having him buried elsewhere. It has been Partridge’s mission for over 40 years to see that Father Zorn was returned to the place he served the longest. “I thought to myself what a shame it was for him to be buried in a place that held no meaning to him at all,”

Father Weikamp founded the Benevolent, Charitable and Religious Society of St. Francis in 1855 in Cross Village. He came with a group of nuns and brothers, including Father Philip Zorn. Zorn briefly served in Cross Village before moving to Harbor Springs to serve that congregation. (Courtesy photo.)

Partridge explained. “He should be back home where he belongs.” Father Zorn will return home this summer and be buried at the Holy Childhood of Jesus Parish on Main Street in Harbor Springs. Zorn’s remains were exhumed last fall and transported to Stone Funeral Home in Petoskey where they are being stored until a funeral service is held at some point this upcoming summer. Partridge noted that he is

happy his goal of bringing Father Zorn back to Harbor Springs has come to fruition. He also said he is happy to be able to share Zorn’s life at the upcoming Harbor History Talk. “Most people around here don’t know much about Father Zorn,” he said. “They know the name from Zorn Park, but that’s about it.” The Harbor History Talk will be held on Thursday, April 18 at 5:30 p.m. at the Harbor Springs History Museum,

349 E. Main Street in Harbor Springs. Reservations are not required but appreciated. Coffee and cookies will be provided and admission is $5 per person and free for Historical Society members. For more information, call 231-526-9771.

Between 1900 and 1910, Boyne City was the fastest growing town in the United States. Major manufacturing operations lined the town’s lakefront. Boyne’s citizens included a number of notable industrialists, but Boyne City’s most famous and highly respected resident was a man named Herman Swift. Herman established the Beulah Home for Boys in a cavernous old hotel building in North Boyne City in 1902. The Beulah home was a major source of civic pride and promoted as “The Greatest Life Saving Station on the Great Lakes.” The Lost Boys story revolves around the complex and tragic life of Herman Swift, his efforts to provide a home and guidance to orphaned and cast out boys. A resulting scandal, which gripped Michigan and garnered front page newspaper coverage across the State of Michigan, lead up to the closure of The Beulah Home in 1913. Swift faced criminal trials in Charlevoix County, and the case of the People vs. Herman Swift became on the most sensational cases to ever go to the Michigan Supreme Court. There it was reviewed on appeal by famous governors Chase Osborn and Nathaniel Ferris. The story touches on area towns: Charlevoix, East Jordan, Harbor Springs and Petoskey. It is touched by numerous notable historical figures, including: Ephraim Shay, Joseph Hudson of Detroit, Bay View’s John M. Hall and many more. Most importantly, the story is about the Beulah Home boys and their courage. Most arrived at the drafty, spooky Beulah Home when they were only eight or nine years old. Some were delinquents, sent to the Home by Juvenile Courts. Most were given up to The Home by mothers who lost husbands and could no longer provide for families that included five to ten children. The boys farmed The

Beulah Home’s large acreage, worked for area residents and sang and danced to earn their keep. All aged eight or nine, they didn’t hesitate to take the opportunity to hop a train in Boyne City, travel to Boyne Falls and then on to the exciting town of Petoskey. Jack Hobey dedicated the book to the boys who lived in the Homes Herman Swift operated in Buffalo, Chicago, Leoni Township (Jackson County, Michigan) and Boyne City. Hobey grew up in Midland, Michigan. He is a University of Michigan and Harvard Business School graduate. Since retiring from a career managing manufacturing companies, he has been researching and writing books dealing with Michigan history and involving a level of mystery and intrigue. Hobey discovered hints of The Beulah Home story while researching his first book, “Wish You Were Here… The Edward Beebe Story,” a book published in 2007, which describes the life and career of photo postcard photographer Edward Beebe who worked in Northern Michigan at the turn of the 20th Century. Hobey’s latest book, “Lawless Years: The Tony Chebatoris and Jack Gracey Story,” was published in November 2012, and tells the story of two Detroit/Hamtramck tough guys who attempted to rob a bank in Midland, Michigan on September 29, 1937 and met dramatic fates. Tony Chebatoris is the only man executed in the state of Michigan in the last 180 years. There will be a book signing after the presentation and there will be books available for purchase. The event will take place on Monday, April 22 at 7 p.m. at the Carnegie Building at 451 Mitchell Street in Petoskey. Friends @ the Carnegie Speaker Series is open to the public and admission is free.

The Call Before I talk about the movie, I just have to make mention of the passing of Roger Ebert. For years I enjoyed his television show with Gene Siskel and though I tended to agree with Siskel more often than with Ebert, their knowledge of the business never ceased to amaze me. It is truly a shame that cancer took them both much too soon. Now, on to the movie. The Call is the story of a 911 operator who must recover from an error on the job that costs a girl her life. Returning after a self imposed break, she works on training rather than manning the phones herself, but circumstance intervenes and she becomes involved in an abduction of another young girl. Halle Berry plays Jordan Turner, the 911 operator and she does a good job with a not great plot. I’m sorry that an actress of her quality can’t seem to find better material, but she perseveres. Abigail Breslin is Casey, the abducted teen and the two of them make up the majority of the movie and they carry it to the best of their considerable abilities. Michael Eklund is more than a little over the top as the bad guy; his performance could have used a little of the subtlety offered by the ladies in this movie. Rounding out the larger roles is Morris Chestnut, another fine actor who deserves better material than he is usually given. This is not a bad movie, it certainly keeps your attention, but there are holes in the plot that require quite a bit of imagination and there were no twists to surprise. I kept remembering back to a similar plot line on television on Law and Order SVU and I really couldn’t help thinking that they handled it in a more believable fashion. Rated R, there is some profanity and some uncomfortable sexual situations, weird and violent, and some definite violence and scary/tense situations. Not for younger children.

Harbor Light Community Newsweekly  11 Brought to you in part by:

Books of Note Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell St. Martin’s Press I told myself that I would not review this book for the paper. I told myself that I would love it, and stick it in the store’s newsletter, and talk about it with people in and out of the bookstore. I think I knew that I was lying to myself all along. But, even as I sit here, writing this review and preparing to send it out for print, I am still vainly trying to convince myself not to review this book. Surely, everyone has already read John Green’s tremendous and glowing review of it in The New York Times. Surely, they have encountered the buzz and vibrations it has sent through social media. Surely, somebody else has already told them how it may just be the best book of the year -- how it will stay with you for a lifetime and turn your insides to a gooey mix of fluttering and joy and remembering and hurt. Surely we are all long-over those blasted, confining categories of contemporary fiction and young adult, and are more than happy to blur the lines. What I have discovered since reopening the doors last Monday is that none of this is true, and so . . . This is Eleanor: chubby, red-haired, “Big Red,” guarded, cynical, new girl, soft, freckled, lonely. This is Park: half-Korean, scowling, scrawny, impatient, disbelieving, hopeful, boy, lonely too. This is Eleanor & Park: beautiful, lost & found, tender, unexpected, complete, not-at-all-lonely. When Eleanor returns to Omaha to move in with her bullish step-father, resigned mother and gaggle of younger siblings, she steps aboard the bus her first day, determined to pass the school year as quickly and under the radar as possible. Her shyness, looks and contempt for her classmates, however, are the very blood in the water that they need to immediately target Eleanor as the victim she has always allowed herself to be. Park doesn’t really care one way or another about this girl, but is she really just going to stand there and make things worse for herself? In a gesture of pure discomfort -- nothing more -- Park commands her to sit, and inadvertently begins a relationship as timeless as Romeo & Juliet, Abelard & Heloise, Guinevere & Lancelot. First, there is the sharing of a bus seat, which slowly progresses to monosyllabic, barely-audible utterances, eyes glued to the bus floor. Then, comes the lending of X-Men comics and Smiths mix tapes, a confusion about how this exchange began, and a grinning acceptance that it will continue. Next, the world stops spinning and time is a silly construct. Fingers touch, heartbeats align, girl looks at boy. Neither has a clue what comes next, but something here feels right. Finally, there is the story of Eleanor & Park. There is Eleanor’s acutely painful and restrictive home life. But there is also Park’s sprite of a Korean mother and his military father, who may just be the greatest and most generous forces at play in this novel. There are mean girls in gym class and the girls that pick up the pieces afterwards. There is an annoyingly popular younger brother and a raging hormone of a best friend. There is the floating of first love and the grounded reality of imperfection. There is honesty, raw emotion, gentle discovery and real heart. There is a journey with a beginning, an ending, and a hope that is vast. There is good and bad and a book that will make you feel everything there is to feel in between. Reviewed by Katie CaPaldi

Bay Bluffs resident continues to create artwork, play piano and stay involved in activism efforts despite battling Parkinson’s disease By Jessica Evans Harbor Light Newspaper

Dona Hiar likes to stay busy. From painting and drawing, to creating Native American quill boxes and playing the organ, Hiar has a number of activities that she enjoys. She even gets involved in grassroots activism efforts and recently gathered 125 signatures to help establish a statewide referendum to keep wolves protected from a proposed wolf hunting season in Michigan. Though the 76-year old Bay Bluffs medical facility resident has battled Parkinson’s disease for over 25 years, this is no reason for her to stop doing what she loves. “Too many people who have Parkinsons think this means it’s the end of their life,” Hiar said. “Sometimes this just makes me sad, because

people don’t try. They need to know they can’t just give up. They need to get out and do something.” Hiar noted that activities such as painting and playing the organ help calm her down and actually help with the Parkinson’s symptoms. She said she particularly enjoys painting and drawing, and enters her artwork in the county fair every year. She has plenty of blue ribbons to show for it. “I’ve entered my work in the fair every year since I was 13. I’ve never had any lessons; I learned from my grandmother, who was an artist. I used to sit at the table and watch her do scenery paintings,” Hiar recalled. “I enjoy painting immensely.” Hiar, who is third generation Ottawa Indian, also makes porcupine quill boxes. She has a standing contract

Hiar enjoys playing the piano. Playing helps calm her down and helps in dealing with her Parkinson’s disease, she said.

Ski areas report increased business this winter season continued from page 1 year couldn’t have been more different. All of Nub’s Nobs trails and runs were open and operating at 100-percent right up until they closed for the season on April 7, Bartlett said. “This year was just about as good as you can get for March,” he said. “Last spring, we were getting thunderstorms. This year, we were getting snowstorms.” “Easter was also early this year, and schools usually coordinate their spring break schedules with the holiday, so that kept us very busy, too,” Bartlett added. “We saw a bump in business the week before and after Easter, and that, coupled with the great weather conditions, made for a great spring for us.” Bartlett noted his crew is starting to clean up for the season, but are already looking forward to next. “We just want to tell everyone thank you for their support this year and we’re planning to work hard this summer to get everything ready for another great season next winter,” he said.

with Mackinac State Historic Parks, who purchase any boxes she creates. Looking at her artwork, it’s easy to see Hiar’s favorite subject matter is animals. A longtime animal lover who has owned many dogs, cats, rodents and farm animals, it seems that there isn’t an animal that she doesn’t love. Hiar holds a special place in her heart for wolves, however, which makes sense considering she raised them for many years. Hiar, who was in the nursing field for over thirty years, moved out to Arizona to work as a nurse on a Native American reservation for eight years. During this time, the chief of the reservation rewarded her hard work with a three month old Canadian Timber wolf puppy. She named the puppy Star, and it became her companion for 18 years. Over the years, she owned several more wolves, including her beloved wolf Kody, and had several litters of puppies along the way. “My wolves lived with us in the house. They slept with us and they were really a lot like dogs. They were not aggressive and got along with all our other pets. I just about died when I heard about the bill for wolf hunting,” she said. “As you can see,” she said with a laugh pointing to a photo of her wolf licking her face, “they’re really dangerous.” Hiar and her husband

Paul own a 160-acre farm in Levering, where she used to have a studio for her artwork and offered to teach anyone interested how to knit, crochet, cross stitch or make porcupine quill work. Hiar’s husband Paul is currently staying at the VA hospital in Grand Rapids for medical issues. Though they can’t be together right now, Hiar noted that every night they talk on the phone and pray together. Hiar said that while Parkinsons has made it difficult to do some of things, she still plans to continue all the activities she loves. “I’ve had good times and bad times, but I tell everyone I’m not ready to die yet,” she said with a smile. “I know I’m not going to let it get me down.”
