Harbor Springs Hearing on amending code to allow theaters downtown set for May 15 As reported last week, a proposal for a non-profit theater in downtown Harbor Springs has been brought before the Harbor Springs Planning Commission. As there was no provision, or even mention, of theaters in the city zoning code, the Commission directed that proposed amendment language be drafted. The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on Thursday, May 15, on two options for amending the zoning code. The first would allow “a public assembly building, similar to a theater or auditorium, in the CBD (Central Business District) as a permitted principal use.” The second would allow such a building as “special land use.” As reported, a group of individuals is “in the process of forming a nonprofit 501(c)3 entity to be known as ‘Harbor Springs Lyric Theatre.” This

School District

Harbor Springs School District voters traditionally pass the CharlevoixEmmet Intermediate School District’s Vocational Technology millage by a more than 80-percent approval rating, superintendent Mark Tompkins said. He’s hoping voters will do the same on May 6, with the 0.75 mills for four years renewal on the ballot. The school election for the millage-- which covers students in Harbor Springs, Alanson, Boyne City, Boyne Falls, Central Lake, Charlevoix, Ellsworth, East Jordan, Beaver Island, Pellston, and Petoskey-- provides crucial funding for a variety of voc-tech programs. In Harbor Springs alone, the millage provides more than $200,000 per year for programs. “This millage funds drafting and architectural design, woodshop and advanced furniture making, graphic arts, and business management coursework. All of these classes are very popular with students,” Tompkins said. “Our students can also go to other schools in the ISD to attend their specialized programs, such as auto shop or home building, both of which are available in Petoskey.” The Tuesday, May 6 election will take place at voters’ regular precinct polling locations.

Letter to the Editor


Follow through on removal of tennis courts

Consider woody habitat when clearing near lakes

To the Editor: I am writing to encourage the City Council to follow through with its decision to remove the tennis courts and not bring the issue to a vote. As has been pointed out previously, the topic has been debated and discussed for a long period of time. Input was sought from all interested parties and it was determined that the removal was in the best interests of all. By any measure, the tennis courts are used by a small sector of our population, whether full time residents, resorters or vacationers for random and, seemingly, short periods of time. While over three hundred signatures is impressive, I wonder how many of the signers use the courts and how often. On their behalf I would encourage City Council to proceed with a decision to relocate the courts as soon as possible — perhaps to the park adjacent to City Hall or the property across from Ford Park. We elect the Council to make decisions on our behalf. Some are not controversial, others are. But for voters to second guess a tough decision that was made after extensive discussion and review is counterproductive to the energy, investment and initiative that seems to be percolating to revitalize our community, i.e. the new theater proposal, the recent sale of the old Juillerets property, Coolhouse Labs, etc. These things are a start, but more needs to be done. Opening up the downtown waterfront for ALL to enjoy is a lynchpin in this effort. Let’s get on with it! Rob Holben Registered voter and full time resident of Harbor Springs


Poetry American Life in Poetry BY TED KOOSER, U.S. POET LAUREATE

Those of us who live on the arid Great Plains love to hear rain on the roof. Not hail, but rain. William Jolliff, a poet from Oregon, where it rains all the time, has done a fine job here of capturing that sound.

Rain on a Barn South of Tawas It may be as close as an old man in Michigan comes to the sound of the sea. Call it thunder if you want, but it’s not thunder, not at all. It’s more like the rush of semis on a freeway somewhere between Bay City and Flint, the road a son will take when he learns, sometime around the last taste of a strap, that the life he was born to is nothing at all like a life he’d ever bother to live. There’s an anger in it, a tin-edged constancy that has no rhythm, quite, something more like white noise that still won’t let you sleep. Think of some man, needing to get a crop in, but the fields are sop, so he’s trying to find something to fix, something to keep his hands working, something to weld, something to pound, something to wrap his calloused palms around that might do less damage than a lead-rope knotted and tossed over the limb of a tree. If you ever decide to lose your years by working this land, you might think again, about the barn you build, or roofing it with tin.

LANSING – Low lake levels and wood loss are causing some fish to binge until they run out of food, according to recent research. Jereme Gaeta, a researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studied the relationship between bass and perch, predator and prey, as dropping water levels altered the habitat offered by submerged trees and wood. Fallen trees and wood create a coarse woody habitat submerged in lakes. “Woody habitat is great for many species of fish in terms of foraging for food,” Gaeta said. “It’s a place for algae to grow and bugs to live.” Trees in lakes can also provide shelter. But when levels drop and the lake shrinks, trees that were once submerged can end up entirely on the shore. That serves up prey fish on a wide-open smorgasbord for predator fish. “With a loss of shelter, fish end up in what’s called the ‘foraging arena,’ which is where the prey and predators interact,” Gaeta said. “When we lose coarse woody habitat, you’re forcing those prey fish to live out there all the time, with no place to hide.” The result? Predator fish gorge themselves on prey fish until there’s not many left. Although Gaeta’s study looked at bass and perch in one Wisconsin area, he said he expects the problem exists in similar areas in the Great Lakes region. “Minnesota, Michigan and up in Canada, particularly,” he said. “These results are applicable throughout timber regions you can find in the Great Lakes and throughout North America.” Although he doubts coarse woody habitat loss would lead to any species’ endangerment or extinction, Gaeta is concerned that dropping lake levels brought on by climate change could remove fish entirely from specific areas. “If lake levels continue to drop, I do think there are cases where species will be extirpated from lakes,” he said. “Or at least dropped to such

low levels that the fisheries are essentially dead.” Although climate change suggests a long-term drop in lake levels, that’s difficult to establish accurately, said Jennifer McKay, policy specialist for the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council in Petoskey. “You really can’t predict, with some sort of accuracy, long-term lake levels. Sometimes short-term levels can be tough,” she said. But while predicting and controlling lake levels isn’t a realistic option, there are other steps to help save habitats, Gaeta said. “People want to build houses by lakes and appreciate nature, but they’re clearing away and moving the wood that helps nature,” he said. Gaeta said when building houses near a shoreline, developers need to consider leaving wood alone that they would ordinarily clear, and also purposefully placing any wood they did clear into the lakes. “Manmade” woody habitats are nothing new. Purposefully placing wood into bodies of water can create dams that control river currents and draw fish to certain areas to create a fishing hotspot.

Fred Sittel, vice-president of the Three Lakes Association in Bellaire, has been involved in multiple projects for woody debris placement for both current control and fishing purposes. Sittel said that he thought if more people understood what wood can do for a body of water, they’d be eager to help. “We never seemed to have a problem gathering people to help our projects,” he said. “It’s often an easy fix.”

And although Gaeta says that wood placement can’t fix everything, it’s a good way to help. “The ecosystem may never go back to the way it was. We don’t know yet. But some of this is preventable, and we think we’ve shown how important this is,” he said. (Capital News Service is provided by Michigan State University Journalism School)

Strong winds cause power outages, problems in region Monday Strong, gusty winds on Monday caused numerous power outages in the area and created numerous calls to area fire departments for downed lines and occasional grass fires. Tree-related power line damage throughout the Great Lakes Energy (GLE) service area caused power outages for customers of that electric cooperative.

The red farm house had been a staple sight when pulling into Cross Village, and Horn explained that people had stopped by after the fire and mentioned how their parents had been driving past the house forever. Luckily, no one on scene, including the roughly 35 first responders, the resident and a pet were injured during the incident. The house was insured and residents plan to stay with family in the area temporarily. Also responding to the incident were the Harbor Springs Area Fire Department, Carp Lake Fire Department, Pellston Fire Department,

Department of Natural Resources, Allied EMS and the Emmet County Sheriff’s Department. The cause of fire is still under investigation. “We have no real cause,” Horn said. “It is not believed to be the wood stove but we don’t yet know the actual cause.” Gift cards and donations for the Scott and Katharine Hawes are being collected at Kelbel Pharmacy located at 205 East Main Street in Harbor Springs. If anyone has photos of the Hawes family, Kelbel Pharmacy will also print one free 4x6 photo to be donated to them.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 It has been a long time since there has been such positive buzz about any proposals for downtown Harbor Springs as I have heard about the plans for a new theater. I suppose there are a few reasons for that, but for many of us, it is because we have such wonderful memories of the Lyric. Rather than taking away, this is returning something to the downtown area that not only has been

sorely missed, but also can and will be used by everyone (unless, as I heard yesterday, they only show “artsy movies.” It’s always something.) This is a great “bring people in to town” idea. For so many years, the Lyric was a part of all of our lives. Let’s face it, there wasn’t always a lot to do and if you couldn’t drive, the Lyric offered a wonderful way to spend an evening. The option of walking or riding a bike to the theater is so nice, and after the theater you could get a little ice cream cone from the soft serve place right next to the theater and walk down to the beach or the deer pen or wherever you felt like strolling. Part of our tradition here used to be a free movie for the kids after Santa’s visit. Some-

times it was in the Quonset hut, but sometimes it was at the Lyric. For those of us who didn’t go to the actual movies (we had Walt Disney and Saturday Night at the Movies on television,) this was such a treat. I remember seeing Old Yeller and lots of other Disney favorites, so much more fun in the theater than in your living room. During the life of the Lyric, they had quite the variety of movies. At least one summer, they did all classic films. Seeing Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte and others like them on the big screen was such a treat. I remember watching Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter starring Herman’s Hermits and something with Freddie and the Dreamers singing “Are

You Ready to do the Freddy?” They didn’t always run older movies. I remember watching Jaws in that theater, and Alien and the Exorcist; perfect summer fare, don’t you think? Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Carrie, Mahogany, A Star is Born, National Velvet, and Mary Poppins; all experienced at the Lyric and remembered fondly. Pretty much anyone who grew up here or summered here has memories of the Lyric. I know that Lynn and Herb Glahn had their first date there and Penny McPherson has some wonderful tales about the Lyric. Mr. Beer and Mr. Fowler were two of the employees that ran the projector and the goddesses of the concession stand included Karen White Pennington, Robyn Parsons Kloss

and Kirsten Larsen, among many others. Pat Horn was a janitor there for some time, along with his many other jobs around town. In fact, a plethora of people worked at the theater itself or the ice cream window or babysat in the upstairs apartment over the years; seems as though everyone has some connection. So here’s hoping that everything goes smoothly with this new plan and we once again have a (wishfully thinking) year round point of entertainment in Harbor Springs. Now, as a wise woman stated last week, if we only had a drive-in for summer nights…. Suddenly I am hearing the strains of “Let’s all go the lobby” running through my head. I hope that passes quickly. Our sincere condolences to

the Sabin family on the passing of Teena Sabin on April 19th. The Sabins do have a very extended family in this area and we will be thinking of all of them.

Sunday, May 4th, Happy Birthday to Patti Gregory Chang, Alison Warner Walstrom and Danny Hughey. May 5th we send birthday wishes to Jake Warner and to some friends far away, Jamie Warner Elliott, Tina Cummings Lemon and Michael Moore. May 6th we say Happy Birthday to Pete Cummings and finally, on May 7th, to John McGregor II.

Weather HighLights

Week’s Low: Sun, April 27, 29F Week’s High, Mon, April 28, 56F April is going to leave us this week but it seems the April showers will continue on for a while longer. All those planning their return here from warmer climates will probably be glad to know that most of the snow is gone. There are a few places in the woods, in other shady areas and in places where it was really piled up over the winter that still have some left. Because there was strong wind at the beginning of this week, the ice in the harbor is breaking up. With predictions for rain the rest of the week, maybe the May flowers will be popping up. We welcome May!!

Dr. Thomas Charlton is the medical director for the Northern Michigan Medical Control Authority which oversees the provision of emergency medical services in the region. He is also an emergency room physician with McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital. Harbor Light Newspaper photo/ Charles O’Neill

Emergency medicine is a calling for Medical Control Authority director By Kate Bassett Harbor Light Newspaper

When Tom Charlton was a little boy, he loved to mimic the “Wee-Woo” siren noises of local fire trucks and ambulances. His dad was an internal medicine doctor and Charlton said his mom knew “he was hooked” on emergency medical services (EMS) from a very young age. Sitting in the booth of North Perk Coffee Shop in downtown Petoskey recently, Charlton-- who now serves as an Emergency Department physician at McLaren Northern Michigan-- smiled and shrugged. “It’s in my blood. It’s who I am,” he said. Truer words might never have been spoken. As Charlton, who has been living in northern Michigan for two years now, started listing his (very long) list of credentials, there was zero hubris, simply enthusiasm and passion for helping those in need. Raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Charlton was a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and firefighter throughout his college career. He is one of the few doctors in the state that has completed an Emergency Medical Services fellowship, and has a master’s degree in Health Administration. Listening to Charlton talk is like listening to an audio textbook on the history of EMS, its models, its successes, pitfalls, and needs for the future. In short, he’s the kind of resource that rural areas like northern Michigan rarely get to call their own. “My wife and I made a very conscious decision when we moved. This is the place we want to raise our family (the Charltons are expecting their first baby in a few short weeks). We may be new to the area, but we already feel very rooted

here. This is our home, our community.” In addition to serving as an Emergency Department doctor, Charlton has also taken on the role of medical director for the region’s Medical Control Authority. Medical Control Authorities (MCA) are organizations designated by Community Health Departments throughout the state, for the purpose of supervising and coordinating an Emergency Medical Service system. His role-- and the knowledge he brings-- may become increasingly important in the coming years as Emmet County struggles to find the best way to subsidize ambulatory care in the area (see related article in this week’s edition). As a whole, Charlton explained, the role of MCA’s in Michigan has major pros-- and one major con-- in helping communities establish and maintain strong Emergency Medical Services. “What Michigan did right is create Medical Control Authorities by county/region, and the hospital-- not local municipalities-- selects the medical director. This is important, because it allows the medical director to be a true third party at the table. I can 100-percent advocate for the patient. What the state neglected to do, however, is fund the authority.” Locally, McLaren Northern Michigan makes sure the MCA is “well funded” considering its rural location, Charlton noted. This is especially true in a time when bad debt and charity care dollars remain on the rise. “McLaren actually pays for any and all drugs used on an ambulatory run. In other parts of the country, those costs come out of the reimbursement from runs. You can imagine how expensive this can be,” Charlton said. “More and more people have insurance because of the Affordable Care Act, but the truth of the matter is that many only

Challenge of providing optimal Emergency Medical Service -CONTINUED from page 1.

Part of the funding crisis has nothing to do with Emmet County, Charlton said. The laws Michigan has in place regarding emergency services do not include a mandate for ambulatory care. That means there is no law that requires the county to provide residents with ambulance services. “It’s frightening to think about living in a community without ambulatory care,” Charlton said. “But it isn’t illegal, and therefore, it isn’t traditionally funded by many municipalities.” In bigger cities, ambulances do not need to rely on taxpayer subsidies, as they generate enough through billing 911 “runs” (only when a person is taken to the hospital) and “taxi” services (transporting patients from one medical facility to another). “In an area like this, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see we just don’t have the run volume to break even,” Charlton said. The other problem northern Michigan faces, he noted, is the unevenness of the seasons-- in the summer, run volumes spike, but it is next to impossible to maintain that level of staffing during the much quieter off season months. “We want to make sure our year-round residents are always covered. And that requires a serious conversation about funding. We need to stop looking at EMS as individual areas and start operating as community members, as friends and family and neighbors who are willing to do what it takes to ensure everyone gets the coverage they need. We need to look at this as a system. This is the kind of thing that can either bring a community together, or drive it apart. I’d like to see us work together.”

Charlton is the first to say Emmet County’s EMS is under-subsidized, but he’s also the first to stress “throwing money at a problem” won’t fix it. “We could have an ambulance on every corner, but how often do you think those paramedics would be intubating people or putting in a chest tube? Skills that don’t get used can get rusty. The real question is how much is enough (and how much is too much)? The goal is to have enough resources, but not too many resources.” Having studied the county’s system-- ambulatory care is covered by Allied EMS and Mackinaw City EMS-- Charlton said he has a clear idea of what optimal coverage might look like. The current model has two Allied trucks and one Mackinaw City truck on at all times, with a back-up ready to go if needed. Charlton said where the trucks are positioned leaves a “donut hole” of poor coverage in the center of the county, where the population is more sparse. “People there are already paying taxes for EMS, but aren’t getting a lot for it. I’m sure if you were to ask folks in Cross Village or Pellston if they should have a truck stationed closer, they would say yes,” he said. Charlton added ideally, he would like to see substations somewhere north of Harbor Springs, somewhere south of Petoskey, and somewhere in that center “donut hole” where current response times are not acceptable (although, he added, that truck could also ‘float’ some, as the center of the county receives the least number of calls), plus a truck in Mackinaw City. Current funding for Allied EMS has relied heavily on a

handful of donors who have purchased new trucks and equipment. Charlton said that he is grateful to live in such a philanthropic place, but noted that type of donordependant operating mode is not a long-term, sustainable solution. “Equipment like heart monitors run $45,000, and ambulances cost between $150,000 and $200,000. Our fleet, as a whole, is long in the tooth,” he said. “It’s time we start reinvesting in EMS as a community. We need the right resources for the right patients and we need to be able to get to them in the right amount of time.” To this end, Charlton added there are only a handful of times that an ambulance is needed within a few minutes: for uncontrolled bleeding or signs of impending (or already occurring) cardiac arrest, which is when a heart stops beating. “Last year, we had 35 cardiac arrests (on EMS runs) and we were able to bring about 25-percent of people back, which is at or above the national average,” Charlton said.

Having worked with many of the area’s EMS personnel, Charlton knows first hand the level of dedication and service they provide. “I am so impressed by how long they have hobbled along without adequate funding. I give a lot of credit to these guys, who have been running the system for so long, patching it up and making tough choices,” he said. “They deserve better. It’s morally unacceptable to not do something better than what we have now. There is rust on some of our trucks. Several have 250,000 miles on them and many have broke down on multiple occasions. You don’t want to be in the back of an ambulance and have it break down.” It is time for the people of Emmet County to speak up, Charlton stressed. He suggested contacting county commissioners, township boards, city council members, and even him. “We need to hear from as many people as possible. We need to know what folks want. We have a functional EMS, not a high performing EMS,” Charlton said. “I want to see us change that.”

have ‘Catastrophic Coverage’ with high deductibles,” he added. “Many people will have their first payments due as a result of an ambulance ride or Emergency Room visit-- and many don’t have upwards of $4,000 to cover their initial deductibles. So, bad debt numbers are still going up. If anything, this results in ambulances being paid even less than before, and we really will need subsidies to keep the doors open.” Charlton said rising costs and smaller reimbursements mean communities need to work together more than ever. As the director of the MCA in this region, Charlton’s goal is to increase communication and resource sharing whenever possible. As an example, Charlton explained that North Central Michigan College’s paramedic program has “high fidelity” mannequins for students to practice a variety of life saving techniques on-- these training tools are so lifelike they respond (and can change responses) to exactly what each student is doing. Charlton said it would be great for the county’s EMS providers to be able to train on the mannequins as well. He also noted the area’s Central Dispatch is strong and well-funded (by the state). With highly-trained professionals and incredible technology, Charlton said the region has great partnerships already in place. The hospital itself is so impressive, especially given its rural nature, that Charlton said his goal is to have ambulatory care that matches. “I would challenge people to go anywhere in the country and find a hospital as strong as ours in a county with 35,000 people. You won’t find it. That’s part of the reason I’m excited to be here.”

EMS in the field The following definitions of different levels of Emergency Medical Services “in the field” were provided by Tom Charlton, medical director of the region’s Medical Control Authority. Medical First Responder (MFR): In this area, MFR’s are volunteers (often doubling as fire fighters) who have been trained in basic first aid, advanced CPR, resuscitation, etc. Medical First Responders cannot transport people to the hospital. Their role is to provide initial scene stabilization-- to stop the bleeding, push on the chest, deliver the baby-- and wait with a patient until an ambulance arrives. Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Basic: Generally the entry-level of Emergency Medical Services. EMT Basics have a little additional training (mostly non-invasive) and are able to transport a patient. EMT Basics can also administer some medicines. EMT Specialist/Advanced EMT: There are very few of this level of EMT’s nationwide. Known as “mini-paramedics” EMT Specialists can administer additional drugs, use heart monitors, and have more assessment abilities. Paramedic: The backbone of life support in a community. They provide the most advanced diagnostics, assessments, medical administration. Essentially, paramedics provide a small scale Intensive Care Unit in the back of an ambulance.

At the Movies with Cynthia Morse Zumbaugh

Transcendence I love Johnny Depp. I will admit that freely, and I never question his talent. I do sometimes question his choices. I prefer the comedic Depp; his quirky nature plays well into comedy, but not as much in dramatic and serious roles. That said, this is an original plot. Will Caster (Depp) is a computer genius and one of his goals is the possibility of uploading a person’s being, their soul, into a computer so they can live theoretically forever. His experimentation has moved to work with a monkey and his work is stringently opposed by an anti-technology group. I’m not giving away too much of the plot when I say that Caster is fatally wounded and is trying, during his remaining time, to use his experimentation on himself, to upload his “essence” into a computer. There is too much going on and although the film is beautifully shot, it is not particularly easy to follow. Supporting cast includes Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, and Morgan Freeman. While there isn’t a problem with any specific performance, the total is not a good representation of the sum of the parts. It just doesn’t work. Depp, in particular, has no spark. There are plenty of messages woven into the plot, some biblical overtones about starting again, but too much and not enough at the same time; too many thoughts tackled without a sufficient explanation for many of them. Rated PG13, there is not really any sex or nudity and the profanity is fairly mild. There is quite a bit of violence for a PG13 movie and some intense scenes, but younger children would be bored and confused; I know that my inner child was through much of this movie.
