Mick will be ‘truly missed’ Local resident, city councilman, “Chain Gang” member, dies By KATE BASSETT Harbor Light Newspaper

Communities are shaped by individuals, and Harbor Springs lost one of its greats last week. Mick Heinz, a City Council member known for his dedication and love for his town, died following a series of recent health issues. “From a local government perspective, Mick was a rare breed,” said -CONTINUED on page 3.

Northern Michigan is a place well known for inspiring art, and the current class of Leadership Little Traverse-- a program dedicated to creating leaders and communityservice oriented individuals-- is gearing up to celebrate this truth with area young people in the first annual Articipate, happening May 18- June 1. The youth-focused art show is being modeled after the well-known Grand Rapids event, Art Prize. “As a group, our Leadership Little Traverse class has a lot of artistic people in it, so when it came time to choose a service project, it was a natural fit for us to do something

that honors and promotes art in our community,” said Stephanie Baker, a member of this year’s leadership class. Similar to Art Prize, Articipate will feature juried student 2-D and 3-D art (ages 14-19) placed in various businesses and community spaces during a week-long exhibition. This year’s event will take place in downtown Petoskey, however, organizers hope to see it grow to all the communities in the Charlevoix-Emmet School District in the future. “We are starting smaller this year, but what we ultimately want is to see this grow beyond our Leadership Little Traverse project (which is a one time event) into an annual event that is supported by the entire area,” Baker said. Perhaps the most exciting part for young artists, she added, is the $500 prize, donated by Sturgeon

River Pottery. “We wanted to make this a big deal. It’s rare for a student competition to have such a large prize, and that only happened thanks to Sturgeon River Pottery. It’s something we’re so excited to offer.” She stressed the prize money-and two week exhibit at Crooked Tree Arts Center for the top finishers-- is only one aspect of Articipate. Although the juried show is a competition, it is also a way for anyone interested in art to display their work in the community. “We really want to encourage all young people-- not just kids in art classes-- to take this opportunity to express themselves by way of art. I remember in high school I had to choose between music and art, and I chose music. I had no immersion in the arts at that time in my life, so when I went to college, I found my-

One of the last orders of business during the April 16 City Council meeting was to discuss the replacement process for late Councilman Mick Heinz’s City Council seat (for the remainder of his term). The City Council vacancy will be filled by appointment approved with the vote of Council members. -CONTINUED on page 3.

self floundering around as a finance major,” laughed Baker, who now has her own photography and graphic design business in Harbor Springs. “I didn’t have any idea I was an artist. The whole idea of Articipate is to get kids to step out of their comfort zone and explore different aspects of art.” In an effort to bring more students into the artistic fold, Articipate will also hold a one-day workshop with local artists in the area of drawing, painting, and photography, at Crooked Tree Arts Center. The sessions are open to anyone in 8-12 grade. The workshop, which is being held in conjunction with the opening of Crooked Tree’s annual Youth Art Exhibit, will take place on April 21. Crooked Tree Arts Center has served as the “mentor organization” for this Leadership Little Traverse class.

Harbor grad’s connection to pool and swimming helped launch career teaching and coaching By DANIELLE McINTOSH Harbor Light Newspaper

Editor’s note: This is another in an occasional series profiling Harbor Springs High School graduates pursuing unique and interesting paths in life. If you have a suggestion for such a profile, please email us at news@ncpublish.com

Seth Beat, a 2001 graduate of Harbor Springs High School, said his affinity for community was first developed swimming laps at the Harbor Springs Community Pool. His experiences as a Hammerhead Swim Club athlete eventually led him to his current position and passion as a high school swim coach. Beat said he left his small hometown after high school graduation for the same reason most kids do: to experience a different place --a bigger, busier place-- with lots of

new faces and opportunities. As an adult, however, Beat admitted he is beginning to realize what you want as a teenager, isn’t always what you want when you really do “grow up.”

This is why Beat still proudly claims Harbor Springs as his home away from home. “Where I live, life is busier, but I sometimes want to take a break from all of it. When I was young, I thought everyone knowing one another was a bad thing, but I think it would be nice to see familiar faces once in awhile,” he noted. Beat is currently the boys varsity swim coach at Wayland High School, just outside of Grand Rapids. As a youngster, Beat and his brother, Noah, were some of the first kids to take part in the Little Traverse Bay-area Hammerheads Swim Club, developed some 22 years ago. Beat only swam on the team until he was a freshman in high school, but continued to work as a lifeguard at the city beach and taught swim lessons -CONTINUED on page 9.

The loss of longtime resident, council member and friend, Mick Heinz, made for a somber atmosphere at Monday’s, April 16, City Council meeting. A long list of agenda items, did however spark some hope in those invested in the livelihood of Harbor Springs. The first item on the agenda was a recommendation from the city clerk to increase the current millage rate from 5.7368 to 5.7884. The change requires a public hearing to be held before the City can levy the rate. A public hearing date is scheduled for the regular scheduled May 7 meeting of Council. A license agreement for the continuation of downtown carriage rides through the summer months was also discussed. Karin Offield -CONTINUED on page 3.

In support of Petoskey Library option... To the Editor: I would like to support Martha Lancaster’s Letter to the Editor in your latest issue (Harbor Light issue of 4/11/12), regarding the Petoskey District Library vs. the Alanson District Library. For my part, a little like Ms. Lancaster, I use the Petoskey library often (mostly MelCat), combining it with shopping, or even attending the Petoskey Film Theatre across the street. How horribly boring it would be to have to drive to Alanson for one purpose only! (And with the gas prices!!!!) Here’s hoping Petoskey remains our library for the time being. Best, Charlie Reyner

gram, if the average American biked or walked to work or shopping once every two weeks instead of driving, the pollution of close to one billion gallons of gasoline would be prevented from entering the atmosphere every year.

Consider the true cost of your commute By JEFF WINEGARD Top of Michigan Trails Council

W

ith gas over $4 a gallon and this spring’s record high temperatures, household budgets and the environment are on many minds. Smart Commuting—walking, biking or carpooling to work—is an enjoyable way to address both.

Watch, I said. You squinted your little eyes.

An easy and fascinating way to determine the cost of commuting in a car or SUV is to use the Commuter Calculator at RideShare.com. Click on “Calculate Your Savings” near the bottom of the home page. The Calculator has sliders to customize the estimate with the round-trip distance traveled, the vehicle’s gas mileage, the price of gasoline, and even typical wear and tear costs for various size vehicles. Amanda Arthur of Resort Township gave the Commute Calculator a try. “First I calculated my commute to work in downtown Petoskey and was pleased to find it came to just $3.06 a day. Then I ran the numbers for my previous commute, when I lived in Carp Lake and was happy to see how much we’re saving by living closer to town: it was $31.20 a day! I was curious, so I also calculated my cost to drive my kids to Gaylord for travel hockey and figuring skating practices. We go at least twice a week. Bad news: $39.52 a trip. Thank goodness for carpooling!” The Rideshare Company Commute Calculator includes only costs borne directly by the individual. The costs borne by taxpayers—such as emergency services and road building and maintenance—and through healthcare costs, land use costs, etc, are explored at CommuteSolutions.org through their “True Cost of Driving Calculator.” Commute Solutions estimates that, on average, every mile driven costs 39-cents in indirect costs.

The balloon looked happy, waving Good-bye.

CorreCtion

BY TED KOOSER, U.S. POET LAUREATE E.B. White, one of my favorite writers, used to say, “Simplify, simplify, simplify,” but that doesn’t mean that writing has to be simple, which is a different matter. Here’s a fine poem by Laurel Blossom of South Carolina that’s been simplified into a pure, clean beauty.

Red Balloon Rising I tied it to your wrist With a pretty pink bow, torn off By the first little tug of wind. I’m sorry. I jumped to catch it, but not soon enough. It darted away. It still looked large and almost within reach. Like a heart.

The following was submitted to this newspaper as “news release” by a representative of the Harbor Springs Education Foundation. It was published as a “Letter to the Editor” from Foundation president Jan McDonald. We have been informed this was not meant as a letter, but instead as a “news release”. We regret the misclassification. -Charles O’Neill, Kate Bassett

On the environmental side, smart commuting has many benefits: conserving energy, reducing emission of greenhouse gases, and trimming air and water pollution. Burning one gallon of gasoline emits 19 pounds of carbon dioxide. Since a gallon of gas only weighs 6.3 pounds, this may seem counterintuitive, but at http://www.fueleconomy. gov/feg/co2.shtml the United States Environmental Protection Agency gives a simple explanation of how the process of burning increases the weight by attaching oxygen atoms to the carbon. The main pollutants from vehicles are • Particulate Matter—tiny bits of soot and metal which can damage lungs. • Hydrocarbons, which contribute to ground level ozone. • Nitrogen Oxides, which also contribute to ground level ozone formation, irritate the lungs, and weaken defenses against diseases like pneumonia and flu • Carbon Monoxide Pollution from vehicles also includes toxic chemicals which are linked to cancer, birth defects, and other serious illnesses. Examples include benzene, acetaldehyde, and 1,3-butadiene. According to the Harvard University Commuter Choice Program, if the average American biked or walked to work or shopping once every two weeks instead of driving, the pollution of close to one billion gallons of gasoline would be prevented from entering the atmosphere every year. Good for the wallet. Good for the planet. Smart Commuting makes sense all around, and the exercise will even help manage the stress of coping with environmental concerns and high gas prices!

and Scott Ward, representing Brek-N-Ridge Farms, agreed to pay the suggested fee for the license agreement that will permit the offering of horse drawn carriage rides through downtown for a small fare. The Harbor Springs Chamber requested permission to use upper Zorn Park to host an August 4 fundraising event to replace the traditional spring golf outing. The “Summer White Party” will be an elegant social gathering centered around tradition and history, according to Scott Herceg, Chamber Director. The chamber plans to partner with the Harbor Springs Historical Society for the event. The Historical Society will

also bring back Shay Days this year,July 20-22, after a three year hiatus. The event will use the museum building and The Shay House, as well as the old reservoir site to bring in live steam engines. Also new this summer, outdoor movies will be shown upon approval from nearby neighbors. Owner of Skydive Harbor Springs, Luther Kurtz, cooperating with the Harbor Springs Library, hopes to host outdoor movie nights in the Hotel Janel site. The movies will be shown after Street Musique, are free and open to the public and will start at approximately 9:30 p.m.. Current downtown construction brought forth discussion of the possible

burial of utility lines on East Bay Street. “The discussion began when the street disappeared,” said resident Kathie Breighner, Monday night. Two private residences, along with the Little Traverse Yacht Club and the Harbor Springs Chamber of Commerce, requested the city to consider moving overhead utility lines underground on the 300 block of Main Street to enhance the appearance of the block entering the downtown shopping district.

Harbor Light Community Newsweekly

The City Electric Supervisor will review the requested area and make a recommendation to city council. The costs of burying the utility lines will be an expense of the property owners, not the city. Following a leak in the 25year old flat roof section of the Harbor Springs Harbor Master building, Council has advised it be replaced. The roof will be replaced using HT Roofing, as recommended by City Manager Tom Richards, in order to have the repairs completed by boating season.

City Attorney, Jim Ramer, suggested that an applicant review committee be formed to streamline the process. Mayor Al Dika supported the committee idea (which would likely consist of Dika, Richards, and one other Council member), while councilperson Alan Hegedus rejected the committee concept. “I would like to be part of this process, for my community and for Mick, and I believe the selection process should be a public process.” City Manager Richards,

reminded Hegedus that the committee will do the preliminary screening process, but all council will present for the final decision. The committee concept was voted on by a majority vote. Applicants interested in the City Council seat are required to have lived in the city limits for two years, and have taxes up to date. A public notice is posted in this issue of the Harbor Light Newspaper, with an application deadline of Monday, April 23.

and new ideas has been a strong force in the community in recent years. Dika said having someone who was both a “local” and cheerleader for seeing the city truly successful for years to come, was an important voice for City Council. “I’ll miss Mick sitting next to me at the table. He was my partner. Often he would call or drop by the shop and say ‘we’ve got to talk,’” Dika recalled. “We would hash out ideas, especially with all the ‘change discussions that are going on today, and he’d tell me what he thought was appropriate and acceptable, I’d tell him where I was coming from, and I’d say 98-percent of the time we would find common ground. “Sometimes he’d tell me to reel him in if he got out of line while speaking from the Council table- I never did that. I always felt that what Mick had to say from the table was clear, to the point and needed to be said. Working with Mick, with his gentle toughness, was an honor.” In the end, Richards summed up the collective sadness at Heinz’s death in a way that fit the man who was so well known and loved in this community. Simply. “He’ll truly be missed.”

“We have learned so much from Crooked Tree and they have been incredibly supportive of our idea. We’re really fortunate to have such a strong arts organization in this community,” Baker said. With more than 30 entries already in hand, Baker said the Articipate committee has extended the deadline to apply until April 30, wanting to make sure as many young artists as possible have the chance to have their work included. “We’ll put together a walking tour map so people can go from shop to shop to see all the artwork on display,” Baker said, adding they are still looking for “host businesses” to exhibit each student’s piece. Down the road, she said she hopes Articipate evolves to include performance art, and adult participants as well. “This is our starting point, but there’s so much potential for this to become a true celebration of all forms of art in our communities.” For information or to apply for Articipate, visit www. articpateupnorth.org

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH czumbaugh@charter.net | 231.526.7842 I thought that I was going to two funerals on Saturday and the idea wasn’t particularly appealing. In fact, these were honest celebrations of life of two men well worth celebrating. I have commented on what a special man Eddie Kelbel was, but the courage of his family and the loyalty of his friends deserve another mention. Ed graduated from Harbor Springs High School in 1977; I’m not one for counting years, but that was thirty-five

years ago. His teammates (and in the seventies we often considered teams, not classes) flew in from Arizona and Florida and Massachusetts for the ceremony; those are true friends, life-long friends. Lane Beatty told me a few times this weekend that I needed to call this column “The Last Practice” which indicated to me that after the loss both Eddie, and of Steve White in 2007, this was an end of sorts and I felt that almost did a disservice to the rest of those

stalwart buddies. As dearly as Eddie and Steve are and will continue to be missed, that core friendship between the remainder of that group will endure and in this age of throw-away relationships, that is something to treasure. I understand now what that title meant to them; after the premature loss, in their words, of their “#1 cheerleader, then the head of the ‘C’-crew and now our ‘A’ crew gunner with a guaranteed jump shot,” this was just an opportunity, as a

group, to say their good-byes. As for the Kelbel family, let us all pray for a time of peace and healing; this winter has been a hard road for all of them and they have handled it with more grace than anyone could expect. Bizarre side note, I know, but there was an interesting development Saturday evening at Eddie’s “Afterglow” party, rather like a rare alignment of planets or stars. In attendance on Saturday night were four consecutive years of

Harbor Springs Homecoming Queens; Kelly Snively, Julie Kelbel Leik, Karen White Rosinski and Tracy Johnson Hollerith. Maybe this sighting will bring us all luck; we could surely use some right about now. If ever a man understood the concept of service, that man was Michael (Mick) Heinz. Right out of school, he served in the Army in Vietnam. On his return, he was an employee of the city for thirty years, but his voluntary in-

Obituaries Michael Heinz Michael K. Heinz 67 of Harbor Springs died April 10, 2012 in Grand Rapids. He was born Feb. 7, 1945 in Petoskey to Lyle and Anna (Lanterman) Heinz. He grew up in Harbor Springs where he attended school and graduated from Harbor Springs High School in 1963. He proudly served in the US Army from 1966-1968 and was stationed in Viet Nam. On Dec. 5, 1970 he married Madaline Peterson in Harbor Springs where they made their home. He had worked for the City of Harbor Springs in the Dept. of Public Works over 30 years and was a supervisor for many years. Mick’s involvement in Harbor Springs included serving on City Council for many years, eight years on the school board, president and

volvement went far above and beyond. He served on the City Council, but he participated in so many ways that reflected his love and involvement with this town, especially the kids of all ages. From the School Board to Little League to Boy Scouts to Flag Football to his seemingly permanent position along the sidelines of football games and in the bleachers for basketball, he didn’t miss much. Every other story I heard or read this weekend began, “he was -CONTINUED on page 12.

Andrew Major coach of the Little League, flag football founder and coach, Boy Scout leader and worked the down box for the sideline “chain gang” at football games for many years.

Community History Note: Back in 1981, the Harbor Light Newspaper collaborated with area history experts, local civic organizations and area businesses to produce a Harbor Springs Centennial Edition of the Harbor Light marking the 100th birthday of Harbor Springs. We are in the process of bringing the articles and features from that issue back to life and plan to re-issue that edition in a new format at some point in the next year. As part of that process, we will be including excerpts and articles from that edition periodically here in these pages, along with other history-related content. We hope you enjoy these looks back in our community’s history. We are also featuring these articles online in new blog:

Excerpt from Harbor Light Newspaper , Special Centennial Issue, July 1, 1981

Brief History of Harbor Springs Schools By WILLIAM BAKER (Excerpted from “Harbor Springs: A Collection of Essays”)

The study of education in Harbor Springs, like so many other studies of Harbor Springs, must begin with the Catholic missionaries. Father Peter DeJean was sent to reside here permanently in May 1829. That summer, under his supervision, the Indians erected a church and a rectory that included a large schoolroom. The school opened on August 23, 1829, with two lay teachers - Joseph Letourneau and Elizabeth Williams. By the end of September the teachers had enrolled 13 day students and 25 boarders. The original Catholic school ceased to operate at some unknown point in the mid19th century. While in operation, however, the instructors taught not only religion and the “Three R’s,” but vocational classes as well - carpentry, gardening, cooking, housekeeping, bookbinding, printing and smithery. On September 4, 1884, the administration of the church was taken over by the Franciscan order. In 1885 the Franciscans reopened the school and by 1886 had erected a new three-story school building. Two other buildings were erected before the first brick building was built in 1913. Holy Childhood School as it stands today was completed with a brick addition in 1926. Holy Childhood School was established to educate Indian children but when white settlers moved to Harbor Springs the children of the parish also attended. Local children, both Indian and white, were referred to as “day students.” Indian students from outside

the parish were the “boarders.” At the beginning of December 1886, the school had 64 boarders; the school census of 1970-71 listed 107 boarders, the most ever enrolled. In recent years the number of boarders has dropped sharply. Two factors have brought about this decline: new welfare programs have provided economic incentives to families who keep their children at home, and the number of boarding accommodations was reduced to 65 when the living quarters had to be moved from the third floor to the first floor to meet state safety requirements. Throughout most of its history, Holy Childhood School has been financed primarily by the local church. The federal government does provide some assistance, and the state of Michigan helps support the lunch program, but most of the money needed comes from church fund-raising projects and contributions from summer residents. Public education began in Harbor Springs sometime during the second half of the 19th century. Exactly when is unclear. A government school, taught by Margaret Boyd (sister of Andrew J. Blackbird), is thought to have been established for the Indians as early as 1857. Will E. Hampton, in his unpublished memoirs of boyhood in Harbor Springs, says a small schoolhouse opened in the fall of 1875 on the north side of Third Street near Judd Street. Hampton also records the opening of the first graded school in the village in 1878. The first written record of school construction is the

report of a special school election on July 30, 1890. By a vote of 19 to one the electors of the district voted to bond the district for $1,700 to build a two-room, two-story addition to the existing school building, then located on Spring Street. The board decided to erect this addition at the north end of the school and resolved to solicit bids from “builders living within the township.” The bid was duly awarded, and on October 4 the board accepted the building. The next addition to school facilities was authorized by voters in 1905. By 1912 it was obvious that more classroom space and a gymnasium were needed; board minutes show that the school had been renting Melching’s Hall (at Melching Boat Works on the waterfront) for $50 to play basketball. By spring of 1914 the board had decided to build a new school and on April 28, 1914, the electors approved bonding the district for $68,000 to purchase the present high school site and erect a schoolhouse. The school built as a result of that bond issue stands today on Bluff Drive overlooking Little traverse Bay. From 1949 through 1963, 13 districts were annexed to the Harbor Springs schools. These annexations came about at the request of the rural school districts who wanted their children to be able to take advantage of the facilities Harbor Springs had to offer. As a result of this growth, the school board began looking at building needs again in 1951. On December 2, 1954, a scaled-down proposal to build an elementary school on Lake Street and a farm

Harbor springs HistoriCal soCiety Harbor History Talk explores the stories in the stars The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society is pleased to welcome Mary Stewart Adams on Thursday, April 19 at 7:00 pm for An Evening with the Stars. Adams is a star lore historian and has been an integral part of Emmet County’s work to establish a designated International Dark Sky Park at the Headlands (two miles west of Mackinaw City). The park is just the sixth such park in the United States and the ninth in the world. Please join us and find out what histories lie in the beautiful night sky above us. Mary will focus her talk on recent history including 19th century history of making mirrors relative to astronomical research as well as the introduction of the light bulb and its role in the disappearing night sky. Mary’s talk takes place during International Dark Sky Week (April 16-21, 2012). For more information about our Dark Sky Park, please visit Emmet County’s Dark Sky Park site. Admission to the Harbor History Talks is $3 per person and free for HSAHS members. Light refreshments will be served.

shop near the high school was approved. In 1958 district residents approved a five-room addition to the elementary school and a new gymnasium. In 1967, school electors voted in favor of a $675,000 bond issue to construct additions to the elementary and high

schools and remodel some classrooms in the high school. The last step in the improvement of school facilities was approved in 1977. The bond issue provided funds for remodeling most of the existing facilities, converting the 1958 gym to a middle school and building an addi-

tions to house a gymnasium, cafeteria, offices and locker commons. The elementary school was also expanded and remodeled. The End (Note: Bill Baker was superintendent of schools).

Harbor grad’s connection to pool and swimming helped launch teaching, coaching career -CONTINUED from page 1.

at the community pool for many years thereafter. Years later, after attending Central Michigan University to study education, Beat

found himself sitting in a job interview for a teaching position at Wayland High School. “I always kept my swim instruction background on my resume, because my dad once told me, ‘everyone needs to know how to swim.’” While he was preparing for the interview, he saw that the school had a swim program, so he inquired about it.

“I wanted to make myself more marketable, even though I knew little about competitive high school swimming,” he added with a chuckle. Straight out of college, Beat managed to land his ideal job -- teaching high school math, as well as assisting with the girls’ swim team. Beat admitted his lack

Tax Efficient

of high school competitive swimming was overshadowed by his self-confidence and positive attitude. “High school swimming events are different than the competitive events I was familiar with; I knew little about training swimmers-and nothing about the diving aspect. Here I was, a male assistant, coaching under a female head coach and a team full of girls. I was definitely out of my element.” But Beat said he did not let this hold him back, and made a conscious effort to become a sponge and learn anything and everything he could about high school swimming, as well as the best training and coaching methods. “I learned through asking a lot of questions. I would talk to other coaches and I did a lot of research. I started with the girls and got to know them and their strengths and abilities.” After his first year as an assistant, Beat came back with ideas; he built a strategy and he knew the kids and their strong suits. When Beat’s strategies and methods proved successful, he transitioned to the varsity boys’ coach. “In high school, the sport is seasonal rather than year round, explained Beat, “which means that you will have some kids coming in

with little to no experience. And especially boys, because of their age, their bodies can completely change from year to year. One year they will be short and scrawny and the next year they are six foot three with lanky arms.” Just as Beat started to settle into his new role, the pool was threatened (at least verbally) with budget cuts. Similar to a situation Harbor Springs now faces, the pool could have been closed due to lack of funds for maintenance and operation. Luckily for Beat and his student swimmers, the community rallied behind the pool, fully supporting the community resource. Swim parents and school staff cooperated to turn the pool into a profit center rather than an expense drain. This meant opening up the pool to the public for classes, lifeguard certifications, lap swims, birthday party rentals and more. “Our pool has really done a 180-degree change. It went from a pool only for students, to being utilized constantly. We still don’t have a lot of money, but we are almost in need of a new pool and the discussions are stirring through the school district.” Pointing out that Harbor Springs Community Pool has already historically been busy with community activities, Beat noted that all pools

have a disadvantage because ‘swimming is not a spectator sport,’ and maintaining pools can be costly. With this said, the area’s Hammerheads program took the title this year at the Michigan Team Swim League State Meet, and has previously placed second behind Midland for the past nine years. Despite the fact that the Harbor Springs pool was closed for the summer to minimize costs, the Hammerheads came back strong in the fall and boasted 105 participants, which is up from years past, according to head coach Tracy Mauer. Beat gave a supporting nod to the rumors of a potential recreational mileage to help keep the pool afloat. He said the lessons he learned in his hometown pool undoubtedly shaped both his character and career. “It seems like the pool is always utilized. I am really emotionally attached to that pool and it is frustrating to see it struggle. I hope Harbor Springs can save it,” he said.

Thursday • April 26th • 2pm - 7pm

It speaks volumes about this quality of movies out there right now that this is the one that I voluntarily chose to see this weekend. I like scary movies, but I find too often that Hollywood doesn’t comprehend the difference between “gore porn” and movies that are scary because there is some actual thinking and suspense involved. This, happily, surprised me. The Cabin in the Woods has humor and some actual original thoughts, though it doesn’t always seem that way. Writers Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Drew Goddard (Cloverfield,) who also directs, take the stereotypical characters from a teen slasher movie and play just enough games with them to make it interesting. This is almost impossible to review without revealing some of the more interesting twists and I surely do not want to do that; I hate spoilers. Suffice to say the movie begins like so many before it, five teens head out for a vacation in the titular cabin in the woods. That’s about as far as normal goes for this movie. I’m not a big fan of “creatures” but they actually make them work quite well here and if you manage to guess the ending, I’m impressed. The young cast is surprisingly good in their clichéd roles. Jock, good girl, bad girl, nerd and pot head; are all the bases covered there? I have to say that although I am not always a fan of pot-based humor, Marty (Fran Kranz) was probably my favorite character and definitely the origin of much of the humor. Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Connelly, Anna Hutchinson and Jesse Williams round out the teens, but the faces of the involved adults are far more familiar. Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitfield are wonderful, playing it very low key in not very normal situations. Rated R, there is plenty of profanity, some sexual conversations and brief nudity, but the rating is for violence and gore, there is plenty of that.

Week of Apr. 18-24, 2012

Celebrate Global Astronomy Month at Headlands April 20 Every year in April, the international dark sky community celebrates Global Astronomy Month, and this year the Headlands International Dark Sky Park in Emmet County is joining in the celebration. This month-long observance follows on the success of the International Year of Astronomy in 2009 and finds dark sky communities, astronomers, citizen scientists and star gazers alike joining hands around the world to raise awareness about the

my coach,” be it for baseball or football. That and the constant references to that omnipresent grin; he had a smile for everyone. What wonderful ways to be remembered and what a gift to have touched so many lives. He was also proud of his service to his country and so respectful of those who served before him; one smile and salute from Mick on Memorial Day last year made my father’s whole day. To Maddie and the family, you are in our thoughts and he will always be remembered. I told Merlin Tippett last week that I didn’t want to continue writing this column when it was so frequently about our losses but the truth is, as tragic as these losses are, it is important to remember these lives that touched us all so much. Our future is shaped by those who came before. This week, very sincere condolences to the families of Martha Rockwell, David Peariso, Ellie Thatcher, Robert Nolan and Richard Holmes. I know that a couple of these people have had long and arduous struggles and I hope that the knowledge that they are now at peace will help their families in the weeks ahead. On a far more pleasant note, Happy Anniversary this week to one of my favorite G couples, NEvelyn I T as Dave and Olson S LI49 years together W celebrate E N on April 20. Here’s to another fifty. Lots of people celebrating birthdays this week, too. Happy Birthday to Shauna Simkens and Jeannette Werden on April 19 and to Rod Niswander on the 20th. On Saturday, Happy Birthday to David Leroy Rhine and to Carol Niswander Manthei and on Sunday the 22nd, Happy Birthday to Art Tebo. On Monday, we send our best wishes to Jan Jury and on Tuesday to Rob McCready. Finally, on Wednesday we send our regards to Beth Robinson Becker, Kati Ward Negley and to Laura Zumbaugh Jackson. Happy days to all and many, many more.

wonder and beauty of the deep dark overhead. Already this month, the star gazing has been spectacular with the bright lights of Venus and Jupiter co-mingling in the West, Mars overhead among the stars of Leo in the East, and Saturn rising earlier and earlier as the month progresses. The Headlands International Dark Sky Park will celebrate all of this and more with the event, Around the World With the Stars. Students, families, teachers and all are invited to come together Friday, April 20 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Beach House for an indoor program of making star domes and other crafts, while hearing star stories from various cultures, followed by outdoor viewing of sunset at 8:30 p.m. until starshine (children under the age of 9 must be accompanied by an adult who can assist with crafting). The event takes place rain or shine, cloudy or clear. “Especially in this month of global astronomy, it is good to know that if we can’t see the stars, we must be the stars,” said Dark Sky Park program director, Mary Stewart Adams. “Participants are welcome to bring binoculars, glue, scissors, telescopes and enthusiasm!” Also note that the peak of the Lyrid Meteor Shower is predicted for the following night, so participants may catch some early strays at the Friday gathering.
