Group wants to bring theater to downtown

Council approves running event, liquor license request, spending items

Forming non-profit ‘Harbor Springs Lyric Theatre’ By Charles O’Neill Harbor Light Newspaper

Downtown Harbor Springs may-once again-- be home to a theater, if a local investor group can bring its plans to life. According to a written statement provided to this newspaper, a group of individuals is “in the process of forming a non-profit 501(c)3 entity to be known as ‘Harbor Springs Lyric Theatre.” This not-for-profit event space will be organized exclusively for charitable educational purposes, and operating a community-supported and mission driven theater in Harbor Springs. Harbor Springs resident and city council member Jeff James is serving as the spokesperson for the group. “This year round venue will offer film, drama, musical arts and literature which will educate (and entertain) the public in cinematic, performing and literary arts. The theatre will enhance the cultural and intellectual life of the community,” James said in the statement. “Very soon this non-profit entity, Harbor Springs Lyric Theatre, will be actively soliciting the necessary funds to purchase, design, and renovate the existing structure to form a multi purpose theatre/stage for all to enjoy and bring much needed life back to downtown Harbor Springs,” he said in the statement. James confirmed in a separate email that the group has three adja-CONTINUED on page 3.

City cancels water drip advisory It must truly be spring in northern Michigan, as the “water drip” request to keep service lines from freezing is officially over. Customers of the Harbor Springs municipal water system in the City and West Traverse Township are now advised to discontinue running water, city manager Tom Richards said on Monday, April 21. “The trend toward warmer temperatures in recent days has reduced the depth of frost in the ground and the risk of water line freezing appears to be over for the season,” he said. Charges for water usage are being adjusted so that customers should not see a higher water bill as a result of the winter-drip program. Questions about the program should be directed to Harbor Springs City Hall (526-2104) or the Harbor Springs Water Department (5260604).

While it is spring, and the Bear River in Petoskey is filled and rushing with melted snow water, it has hardly been a warm season so far. Ice cover remains on Little Traverse Bay, although it is by no means solid or safe enough to traverse. Temperatures have stayed largely in the 40s. (Harbor Light photo/Charles O’Neill)

Emmet County

Governor appoints local resident to new statewide recycling council

By Kate Bassett Harbor Light Newspaper

Governor Rick Snyder recently announced a statewide plan designed to increase residential recycling access statewide. He also announced appointments to a nine-member Michigan Recycling Council to guide the plan’s implementation, including Emmet County’s own recycling guru, Elisa Seltzer. Seltzer has directed the Emmet County Department of Public Works since 1990, and operates Emmet County Recycling (ECR). ECR’s recycling facility processes and markets recyclables for Cheboygan, Emmet, Otsego and Presque Isle Counties. The ECR system accepts 28 day-to-day materials for recycling from its curbside collection program and drop-sites throughout the four county area. An additional 32 materials—including electronics, construction and demolition materials--are accepted for recycling at the Emmet County Drop-off Center in Harbor Springs. Emmet County Recycling does not rely on tax dollars. In 2011, the recycling system employed roughly 24 people directly and provided $2.5 million in benefits to the region.

“I am very excited to work with such a respected group of recycling professionals as well as with the dedicated DEQ staff on this important initiative. This sounds pat, but I mean it! It’s been a career-long dream of mine to work on bringing recycling to its full potential in Michigan,” Seltzer said in an interview with this newspaper.

During the announcements, Snyder noted “Michigan has a strong tradition of protecting and enhancing its environment. But when it comes to recycling, we must do better. Michigan trails other Great Lakes states and much of the nation in residential recycling. It’s a complex challenge but one that we can address. This plan puts us on the right path.” Michigan’s recycling rate for residential household waste is about 15 percent. The national average is 35 percent. A recent study concluded more than $435 million in recyclable metal, glass, paper and plastics goes from Michigan households to Michigan landfills each year. Those are staggering numbers-- in both negative and positive ways-and Seltzer said she understands the challenges the state’s new Recycling Council faces. “We’re charged with addressing longer term policies and goals. The most challenging include funding, increasing the number of communities with drop-site and/or curbside programs, involving waste haulers in providing collection services,and how to incentivize communities to -CONTINUED on page 2.

A quick meeting of the Harbor Springs City Council on Monday, April 21 spanned both ends of the community spectrum, with notice of a Memorial Day event to raise funds for the Harbor Springs Food Pantry, approval of the city’s updated master plan, and a request for a resolution in support of a club liquor license, allowing the Depot Restaurant in downtown Harbor Springs to complete its privatization. Josh Baker, owner of The Outfitter, presented a request to City Council to hold a Memorial Day 5k run/walk, similar to the Thanksgiving Day run he and his wife, Molly Ames Baker, already put on each year. Council members agreed to the event, noting Baker should work to make sure he coordinates with the American Legion’s Memorial Day activities. The 5k will take place at 8 a.m. on May 26, with a $10 suggested donation entry fee. 100-percent of proceeds will go directly to the food pantry in this “no fuss, all fun” handtimed race event. City Manager Tom Richards introduced the Depot Dining Club’s agenda item by saying the club “requested a resolution in support of a club liquor license,” as a result of “some change in structure.” He said it is his understanding the city has the opportunity to recommend approval as one of the steps of the Liquor Control Commission’s licensing process. “This is because the Depot is going private, correct?” Mayor Al Dika asked, adding, “I’m sorry to see that happen, frankly. I don’t think we need more private clubs in this town.” Still, the resolution of support was passed 4-1 by Council, with Matt Bugera voting no. Council also approved letting bids for the Spring Street paving project, which must be completed by June 14, and a roof replacement for the Ford Park building, which was granted to TWB Contractors of Harbor Springs. The DPW was granted approval for a new plow/ dump truck to replace a 1993 truck, and the Electric department will be getting a new digger pole truck. -CONTINUED on page 3.

Tennis courts petition gets 305 signatures A petition containing 305 signatures of City of Harbor Springs residents has been turned in to the city, according to organizer Bill Horwath, requesting the decision to remove the waterfront tennis courts be put to a vote of the people. The Harbor Springs City Council this winter voted to remove the courts after it had been discussed over the course of the past few years in relation to an overall redesign of the city waterfront. The petition reads: “We the following registered voters of Harbor Springs, Michigan declare that we want the action by the Harbor Springs City Council to remove the public waterfront tennis courts rescinded and have the issue decided by the voters of Harbor Springs, Michigan.”

For Earth Day and every day after...Stop Toxic Littering

Sexting, Selfies, and Snapchat…Oh my!

To the Editor:

By Annie Ossewaarde

Smokers should rethink toxic littering. Cigarette butts are found on the ground, along the road, in front of buildings, along the shore at the beach and throughout the parks. Cigarette butts/filters leach toxic chemicals and carcinogens that pollute our environment. Everyone should place cigarette butts in receptacles or trash bins before entering a public place. I find more people leaving butts inside the doors of buildings or dumping their car ash trays right onto the pavement of parking lots. Recently I watched the SAFE Youth’s new tobacco awareness video on YouTube.

I was amazed at how much toxic litter was found on our beaches alone. As a service project they collected 1,396 cigarette butts/filters along the beach; that is a lot! I hope our local municipalities consider making our parks and beaches tobacco-free. Cigarette butts could release toxins in our freshwater lakes and kill the fish and other organisms. So everywhere on the planet, let’s avoid toxic littering. Happy Earth Day! Sheila McKinney Levering

collaborate,” she said. Luckily, Seltzer has plenty of experience to draw from, and Emmet County can serve as a fantastic model for other communities throughout Michigan. “Emmet County was fortunate to benefit from state leadership on this issue in the 1980s. It led to the development of recycling programs which are now considered best-in-class for being convenient, comprehensive, and cost-effective,” she said. “Emmet County set the bar high in terms of the number of materials we recycle; our collaboration with regional and statewide markets,selling top-grade recyclables to Michigan factories; keeping jobs in Michigan and maximizing return on investment.” Seltzer said she would also like to see the state also set high goals for statewide recycling access and participation. “One of the most successful aspects of our programs are the policies behind the scenes that have enabled recycling to grow in our communities. These include our Solid Waste Ordinance and Pay-As-YouThrow requirements (for haulers to charge their customers based on volume). We also provide a great example of how counties can partner together to improve recycling over a wide region.” “States with healthy recycling programs have found that, in addition to reducing

pressure on landfills and helping the environment, recycling creates jobs and opens markets for recovered materials,” Snyder said. “We’ve been throwing away money for decades. Addressing this issue is simply the right thing to do.” The 15-point plan focuses on four key areas: Benchmark and measure progress – including developing ways to better track Michigan’s recycling rate and document the progress of the state’s effort. Public education and technical assistance for communities – other states report that an informed and supportive public is a key to increasing recycling, along with providing tools for local governments to develop local programs. Provide convenient access – successful recycling programs feature convenient access at the local level. Develop markets – stimulation of market opportunities for recycled products will be addressed with grants and other economic incentives. The DEQ drafted the plan in cooperation with 45 key stakeholders including recyclers, landfill operators, manufacturers, waste haulers, bottlers, grocery store operators and others. “This plan represents a real breakthrough for the myriad interested stakeholders around recycling,” said Michigan DEQ Director Dan Wyant during the plan’s announcement event. “What

we celebrate today is their leadership, our partnership and the sustained commitment from everyone to keep ‘Pure Michigan’ pure in the years ahead.” The effort is supported by a $1 million appropriation in the governor’s recommended fiscal year 2015 budget, along with $500,000 in DEQ pollution prevention grants that will be committed to support local recycling programs over the next two years. “The Michigan Recycling Coalition is pleased with the governor’s leadership on this issue,” said Kerrin O’Brien, executive director of the Michigan Recycling Coalition. “This initiative recognizes that we can and should do more to fully achieve the economic and environmental rewards that a comprehensive residential recycling program will bring to Michigan.” Seltzer agreed, noting, “recycling just makes sense.” “ I am so glad that Governor Snyder sees the potential to improve Michigan’s economy by putting forth this Recycling Initiative and appointing a Michigan Recycling Council. His leadership can go a long way towards improving recycling that will benefit all of Michigan in jobs, resources and economic vitality,” she said.

Sexting, Selfies, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter…the list goes on. We are slaves to social media. While much of the technology we have today is a fun and great way to keep in touch with people on the surface that you wouldn’t otherwise, there is a dark side of social media that has taken captive of our youth and dug a hole so deep that many kids cannot find their way out of it. How many of us have been in the middle of a conversation only for it to be interrupted by a text, tweet, ding or buzz? Recent research shows that, on average, people check their phone 110 times a day. When you consider the peak hours this computes to about once every six or seven seconds! How much can you find out about a person without ever actually seeing his/her face? With how easy it is to know all this about a person how much easier would it be to talk about or post something negative. There is almost no filter on social media, which makes the perfect avenue for bullies to strike. Cyberbullying is the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature. A recent study in 2010 from the Archives of Suicide Research, showed that cyberbullying victims were almost twice as likely to have attempted suicide compared to youth who had not experienced cyberbullying. Children who have reported being bullied using the internet are almost three times as likely to have brought a gun, knife or other object that could be used as a weapon to school. Senate Bill 0074 will require schools to write cyberbullying into their policy in order to

define and have a protocol for disciplining it where applicable. While this is still uncharted territory this bill will raise awareness to this issue and equip educators to address it in their schools. This bill has been sitting stagnant in the state senate since October, 2013. It is time that we take action again something that is a very real part of our generation and is not going anywhere.

The Planning Commission agreed to move forward in drafting a proposed ordinance to permit a theater as a use, and as another option, an ordinance that would allow it as a ‘special land use’.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842

MIKE PIERCE D.D.S. New Patients Welcome Weekdays 7 am - 4 pm 289 E. Main St. Harbor Springs 231-526-9611

Out of the many things that we have to be thankful for, I think one of the most precious is our memories. Times and places past are not lost to us and those who are gone are never far away. One of the most amazing aspects of memories is the way they can be triggered by the slightest thing, a sight, a sound, a taste or a smell. Madge Kosequat was sitting a little bit in front of me in church on Easter Sunday and, on the back of her chair, she had her plastic rain bonnet. Made me smile immediately and made my Easter better because I never see one of those without thinking of my mother; those bonnets and full length, over the head, flower aprons. For my dad, it is suspenders and handkerchiefs; so few people use them anymore, he was never without either one, so when I see them, he’s always there in my mind’s eye. Memory stimulation is not always visual. I never hear the word “verbose” without thinking of Betty Jezisek (and yes, it was often my writing that she was referring to when she used it.) During the NCAA

basketball playoffs when Wisconsin played, I felt the urge to stand frequently at each rendition of “On, Wisconsin,” a reflex action from the days when we stood each time our school song was played. If I slip into complete nerd mode while traveling and pass the time while performing algebra in my head to calculate how long it will take to get somewhere traveling at a certain speed, I flash back to Tom McDonald and Jim Zylstra. Little did they know that not only was I paying attention, their lessons would serve as entertainment for me all these many years later. I rarely drive by what is now

the Little Traverse Township Hall or by what used to be the Flying Dutchman without George Menzi coming to mind, watching him and Bob Snideman and company entertain. Can’t you just feel the makeshift maracas in your hands as they got the crowd involved in the music? So many smiles, so much happiness shared. We all have songs that we relate to specific people in our lives and when you hear them, you smile a little, don’t you? I can’t hear the Heart song “Magic Man” without thinking of Jeff Bodzick; the lyric says, “never seen eyes so blue” and happily, that has al-

ways brought his face to mind. For you, it might be the song from a first date, a wedding, a graduation, but whatever the memory, that song is permanently associated with that person or event. I remember being at a pool party at Nub’s Nob for someone’s birthday a very long time ago, we had one of those little portable record players with us and Badfinger’s “Come and Get It” was playing over and over; we thought that song was so very risqué. We used to be allowed to play music during gym class and it was always the Tapestry album by Carole King or American Pie by Don McClean. I can’t hear any of this music to this day without the sights, smells and sounds of days gone by in my head. My father-in-law, Bob Zumbaugh, is forever meshed in my memory with the television show Matlock and running across the show never fails to bring him to mind and a smile to my lips. Bob never really mastered the mysteries of the cable box and remote, so I was frequently called home for lunch so I could “fix” his television so he could watch reruns of Matlock. He was so impressed with my abilities to change the channel… As a very personal memory for me, I can never see a box of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes without thinking of Mary Murchie Ivey. We toured the Kellogg’s factory our senior year; we were supposed to be touring colleges, but we got sidetracked. Mary spent much of the tour asking about the “Kellogg’s Crow” which completely confused the tour guide, since the Corn Flake’s mascot is a rooster and, I might mention, we were actually wearing little paper rooster hats at the time.

I doubt that I will ever walk in the Stutsmanville Chapel or the gym at the school without looking for my Aunt Becky and Uncle Howard Morse. It just seems like they should be there, they are part of those places and always will be. That’s how memories work. So thank you to Madge for bringing me a little sunshine on a cloudy and rainy Easter Sunday, just by being there and being you. I have been asked to pass along the following; I think it is self explanatory and that it shows again why this community is so special. “Arthur and Brenda would like to thank family, friends, and this far reaching community for their prayers and support during this challenging time. We are humbled and overwhelmed by the response. God Bless.” Now let’s get to this week’s birthdays. On Thursday, April 24, Happy Birthday to Rob McCready and a happy 20th to Laura Garber. Friday, April 25, we send birthday greetings to Beth Robinson Becker, Katie Ward Negley and to Laura Zumbaugh Jackson as she celebrates #50. Saturday, April 26th, Happy Birthday to Terry Meyer and to Jane Kaup (and I hope Jane is in town to celebrate in her favorite fashion at Teddy Griffin’s.) April 27 we offer birthday greetings to Roxie Beach and Steve Murchie and on Monday, April 28th to Carol Marszalec Greig and Ben Veling. Tuesday, April 29, Happy Birthday to Cece Waybrant Sanzone, Jeremiah Radke and to cousin Jim LaCount. Finally, let’s end the month with birthday wishes on April 30 to John Medicine, Laura Septic, Mark Brown, Lisa Talaga LeClaire and Mia Roekema.

Rachael Brushaber of Harbor Springs has been inducted into the Heidelberg University (Tiffin, Ohio) chapter of Psi Chi, the psychology honorary organization, during a ceremony on campus April 3, 2014. A graduate of Harbor Springs High School, Rachael is a junior majoring in psychology.

Welcome to spring! Very soon the crocus, daffodils and narcissus will be in bud - a new beginning after a long winter. As an apartment complex we will soon have a new beginning, too. Thirty years ago concerned citizens saw a need for affordable housing for seniors and after much diligence and hard work the

Letter Carriers Food Drive May 10 To the Editor: Saturday, May 10, 2014 marks the 22nd anniversary of the National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. Letter carriers walk through the community every day, often coming face to face with a sad reality for too many, hunger. So, each year on the second Saturday in May, letter carriers across the country collect non-perishable food donations from our customers. These donation go directly to local food pantries to provide food to people in Harbor Springs who need our help. The need for food donations is great. Currently 49 million Americans -1 in 6- are unsure where their next meal is coming from. Sixteen million are children who feel hunger’s impact on their overall health and ability to perform in school. And nearly 5 million seniors over age 60 are food insecure, with many who live fixed Crossword incomes often too ask forof: help. Theon weekly Puzzle is embarrassed brought to youto courtesy Our food drive’s timing is crucial. Food banks and pantries often receive the majority of their donations during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons. By springtime, many pantries are depleted, entering the summer low on supplies at a time when many school breakfast and lunch programs are not available to children in need. Participating in this year’s Letter Carrier Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is simple. Just leave a non-perishable food donation in a bag by your mailbox on Saturday, May 10 and your letter carrier will do the rests. I invite you to join in America’s great day of giving and help us in our fight to end hunger.

I would like to give a big thank you to the Harbor Springs Fire Department including Dick Schiller and Rick Holdorph for their quick response to a gas leak and subsequent quick fire at Turkey’s Cafe on Main St. A big chunk of ice fell on the gas meters and caused a rupture of the gas line.

dream became a reality. Three buildings were built in 1979 and in the ‘90s a fourth building was built to give us a total of 41 attractive apartments. This is a picturesque location near to downtown Harbor Springs, churches, the post office and the beach. All of us who live here enjoy ourselves and appreciate the handy parking and well maintained sidewalks. Now there will soon be construction of a new building to replace buildings A, B, and C. Another new beginning! When it is completed it will be as beautiful as before but more up to code with air conditioning and elevators. The location will remain the same which is ideal for walking exercise which all of us love to do. Other activities

will continue to be offered such as classes for swimming and computering, parties and potlucks, Bingo, and physical exercise of various kinds. New at this time are classes for Tai Chi which is a slow motion exercise practiced by millions of people around the world. We have a very good instructor who comes once a month to teach us new movements. Our newest venture will be a Low Vision Class. Any senior in this area can join us for our activities. For more information call our office at 231-526-7108. If the housing interests you, you can come here and get your name on a list.We welcome you! Submitted by Jeanette Scheffler

Week’s Low: Sat, April 19, 29F Week’s High, Sat, April 19, 58F The good news is we didn’t have any measurable snow this past week. Saturday was a lovely day with temperatures close to 60 as folks were out and about enjoying one of the few real spring days we have had. Easter Sunday brought us a chilly, rainy day for the most part causing most activities to be held indoors. Predictions for the remainder of the week and into next week include high temperatures at best in the mid 40s and lows in the ‘20s and ‘30s. Since “April showers bring May flowers” let’s look forward to the arrival of the wonderful spring flowers soon to be coming up around town and in our woods!!!

Sponsors needed for Smart Commute Week

Brass Band, high school band to present combined concert April 27 The Northern Michigan Brass Band (NMiBB) will present a special combined concert with the Harbor Springs High School (HSHS) Band as part of its ongoing series Something for Everyone on Sunday, April 27 in the Harbor Springs High School Performing Arts Center. The program will begin at 3:00 P.M. The program will feature both ensembles performing separately and combined. The concert will also feature brass players from the HSHS Band joining NMiBB in a performance of Star Lake, a stirring march by British composer Eric Ball. Now in its fifteenth year of operation, NMiBB will also perform a program of original and transcribed brass band music by Gustav Holst, Malcolm Arnold, Derek

Bourgeois, Johann Strauss, and Glenn Miller. General admission is $10 with students admitted free. Proceeds will go, in part, to support the Harbor Springs High School Band Program. Tickets will be available at the door. According to NMiBB Conductor Ralph Schweigert, the idea for a series of programs based on the concept “Something for Everyone,” originates from the fact that not everyone listens to music in the same way. “Some people listen with their heads, others with their hearts and still others with their feet,” Schweigert said. “I try to include music that will appeal to all these listening styles on any one program.” The program will open with the Harbor Springs High School Band performing Three Folk

Miniatures by Andre Jutras and Scenario by Jared Spears conducted by Patrick Ruddy followed by the combined bands playing Father of Victory, a classic French march by Louis Ganne, conducted by Ralph Schweigert. The NMiBB portion of the program will include the March from A Moorside Suite, an original composition for brass band by the great British composer, Gustav Holst; Little Suite for Brass, another major composition for brass band by another great British composer, Malcolm Arnold; Serenade by Derek Bourgeois; and Thunder and Lightning Polka by Johann Strauss, Jr. The concert will conclude with a medley of Glenn Miller tunes including Little Brown Jug, A String of Pearls, Moon-

Instant Wine Cellar fundraiser April 25

After a long winter in Northern Michigan, you are invited to a night out this spring to enjoy a fundraising event that supports volunteerism in Emmet and Charlevoix Counties through Char-Em United Way’s Volunteer Connections. The 4th annual Instant Wine Cellar will take place on Friday, April 25 from 7-11pm, at Stafford’s Perry Hotel in Petoskey. The night will feature a chance to win several large collections of wine or craft beer and will include live entertainment from Northern Michigan’s own Boyne River Remedy. Entry to the event is a bottle of wine or six-pack of craft beer. With the purchase of raffle tickets, guests have a chance to win one of several collections of wine or beer from the donated beverages. Adding to the entertainment, there will be a silent auction, as well as hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. A special committee is organizing the evening to benefit Char-Em United Way’s Volunteer Connections, which serves nonprofit organizations and volunteers by providing resources, recognition, and management. The purpose of Volunteer Connections is to promote and increase volunteerism in our two-county area. This year, the event’s silent auction will have some amazing items, including a trip to Napa Valley for a balloon ride and wine tasting tour. The complete silent auction can be viewed on by searching ‘instant wine cellar,’ with final bidding made at the event.

County historical collaborative offering program April 30 on Mackinac Point lighthouse, shipwrecks and new museum The Essence of Emmet historical collaborative will host another of its twice-yearly historical programs on a topic of local intrigue, on April 30, 2014, at the Fairgrounds in Petoskey. “A Straits Perspective: Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse, shipwrecks and a new museum” is the topic for this free program that is open to the public at the Community Building at the Fairgrounds. Time is 6 to 8 p.m. No reservations are required and refreshments will be served during an intermission. Speakers include Phil Porter, Director of Mackinac State Historic Parks that include Mackinac Island State Park, Michilimackinac State park and Mill Creek State Park, plus a number of historic sites and museums within these parks. Porter will speak first about the history of Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse, including construction of a new building at the site, the Straits of Mackinac Shipwreck Museum.

The museum will tell the story of the ships and sailors whose time on the Straits ended tragically. Featuring a variety of original objects and artifacts, including some recovered from the steamers Eber Ward and Cedarville, the museum will be housed in the reconstructed warehouse, originally built in 1890 and torn down around 1940. The museum is expected to open in July 2014. Also speaking at the event will be Craig Wilson, the museum historian for Mackinac State Historic Parks and supervisor of staff at Colonial Michilimackinac and the Old

Heaven is for Real I hesitated in choosing this movie for review. I know that there are those who will hate it because of the subject matter and those will think it is outstanding even if it is horrible because of the subject matter. It is based on the best selling book of the same title and tells the story of a young boy who astounds his parents with tales of Heaven following a near death/death experience during an appendectomy. Colton Burpo (Connor Corum) has been raised in a Christian family, his father is a pastor, he attends church regularly but when he begins, after his operation, to tell stories of relatives dead long before he was born, Jesus and multicolored horses and other stories of heaven, his family doesn’t know what to make of it. Even his father is skeptical. I’m not going to debate theological issues, but rather the merits of the movie. It is slow, in places, but for a movie with no special effects to carry through the slow spots, it really does a pretty good job. It’s not a “preachy” movie at all; in fact, it was written with quite a bit of humor and believable humanity. And if you do believe the story, it raises many interesting thoughts. Greg Kinnear is very believable as the father/part time preacher. In fact, the entire family is about as likeable as any you could ever ask for. Thomas Haden Church and Margo Martindale are both excellent as the neighbors and Kelly Reilly is good as Colton’s mom, but Todd, Kinnear’s character, carries the movie. Connor Corum is cute to the edge of saccharin, but it’s hard to criticize that face too much. There is no profanity or nudity, but there are some intense scenes. Rated PG for those scenes, small children may not understand it and those slightly older will undoubtedly ask some interesting questions after seeing this.

On the Bookshelf The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair Reviewed by Katie Capaldi The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, by Joel Dicker, translated from the French by Sam Taylor (Penguin Books, $18.00) If we are in the honest sort of mood when a customer asks, “What are you reading right now?”, we will likely respond with an answer along the lines of, “This really great book . . . but it won’t be released for a couple of months.” It is one of the many perks of being a bookseller, this chance to read books before they make their way onto our shelves. It gives us the ability to share our enthusiasm with the books’ publishers, authors, sales reps and with you. This advance access to books is sometimes a double-edged sword, for we always run the risk that our customers will forget about these titles by the time they see publication (again, here comes that honesty: we also run the risk that we too will forget about these titles). It is tricky to sell a book that we cannot physically put into your hands. So this conversation about what we are reading becomes a carefully choreographed advance and retreat. We must hint at what is to come, but then step backwards into books that we can hand over right now. I am convinced that one day, research will prove that bookselling is an ideal way to keep the brain young. But that is a discussion for another day. What I ask of you today is this: please, please do not forget about this book. Clip this out. Keep it somewhere safe. Or better yet, call the store and ask to have a copy reserved for you. The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair will go on sale on May 27th, and promises to be a thrilling start to your summer reading. The novel has already seen tremendous popularity across all reading tastes in Europe and will soon take the states by storm as well. So, what is the truth about the Harry Quebert affair?Well, goodness, you don’t want me to spoil the ending for you! Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? We readers enter the story on August 30, 1975. For all intents and purposes, this is the day that forever casts a pall over the small town of Somerset, New Hampshire. It is the day that the bright, cheerful and beautiful 15-year-old, Nola Kellergan is spotted momentarily fleeing through the woods, covered in blood, and then disappears from sight. As with all histories, however, there are events that came before and there are events which follow these single turning points. Both the past and the future hold truths which will unlock the mystery of what happened to Nola. For Marcus Goldman, a one-time bestselling novelist struck with the dreaded curse of second-book-writer’s-block, a story may have just found him if he has the courage to tell it. It is 2008 and Nola’s body has been unearthed, having been buried on a Somerset property not far from the place she was last seen alive. The place belongs to another famous American man of letters, Harry Quebert, who is coincidentally Goldman’s mentor and the older man with whom Nola fell in love during the summer of 1975. When it comes to light that Quebert’s seminal novel, The Origin of Evil, was really a narrative of the affair between him and Nola, the world of the literati condemns him even more harshly than the possible death penalty he faces. Goldman is convinced that there is so much more to the affair than meets the eye. Combine this with the fact that his publisher has sniffed out the next literary blockbuster, and the young writer finds himself swept up in the volatilities of small town secrets, the jealousies of unrequited love, the ignorant violence of youth, contemporary America’s obsession with media and celebrity, the delicate fragilities of the web of lies that was spun long before that fateful day in 1975, and the basis for his book. This novel is a puzzle if there ever was one, and one that seems at times will never fit together in a way that reveals a complete picture. The remarkable feat is in the getting there. Alternating points of view, time periods, plot lines and even writing styles maintains a kind of frenetic and compulsive energy from the hand of the author to the mind of the reader. Ultimately, yes, you want to know what happened to Nola, but along the way you also discover a fascination with what is required in the writing of a good book. Every chapter opens in conversation between Harry and Marcus. “Never let fear or fatigue stop you. On the contrary: You should use them to help you keep going.” The teacher imparts a bit of wisdom to his protege: thirty-one rules, to be exact. And just like Marcus Goldman, the reader is left wondering if we are being taught how to write or how to live.

Sports Round-Up

Varsity Track and Field

Coaches, parents, fans: Submit your team scores to news@; 526-2191.

Varsity Baseball Friday, April 18 Harbor Springs v. Kalkaska Game 1: HS - 3 to Kalkaska - 1 Ean Walda had a rough first inning with two walks and a hit batter, but battled to get out of it without surrendering a run. From there he settled in and cruised to the win. Ean went all 6 innings giving up 1 run on 3 hits and 4 walks while striking out 7. Besides the first inning, Ean commanded his fastball well which made his offspeed pitches very effective. Our bats perked up a little after being shut down a week ago in Grayling. Chase Lepird, Ean Walda, Jake Hickman, Mitch Wallin, and Dillon Schwark each recorded a hit. Zach Gorman, Ean Walda, and Dillon Schwark scored our runs. Chase Lepird added 2 RBI’s on a two out, two strike line drive in the 5th to pad our lead. That hit proved to be the difference. Game 2: HS - 6 to Kalkaska - 7 Aaron Burdick pitched 3 innings allowing 4 runs (3 earned) on 1 hit and 7 walks while striking out 7. Jake Hickman pitched 2 innings giving up 3 runs (1 earned) on 4 hits and 1 walk. Burdick just couldn’t consistently find the strike zone for us, but the 6 K’s show if he can throw strikes consistently, his “stuff” is electric. Hickman did a nice job in relief to keep us in the game. Our offense was led by Chase Lepird who went 2 for 4 and scored 2 runs. Zach Gorman, Ean Walda, Mitch Wallin, Erich Hibbler (2 hits), and Charlie Kelbel each added to the hit total while Aaron Burdick drew 2 walks. Zach Gorman, Ean Walda, Aaron Burdick, and Dillon Schwark each scored a run in addition to Lepird’s 2 runs. The entire team contributed to a well played game. An untimely error in the 4th allowed Kalkaska to score the go ahead (winning) runs. Overall, game 2 was a great back-and-forth high school baseball game. -- Submitted by coach Josh Brey
