Library day... The Harbor Springs Library celebrated its official grand reopening by reviving a century old tradition, Library Day, on Friday, May 18. “It was a huge success,” said library director, Alexandra Osetek. The privately-funded library, which is open to all residents of the Harbor Springs area, recently underwent renovation and restoration work. Now complete, the library is continually upgrading its services while honoring the long-standing history of its space. Current hours and a schedule of upcoming events are available at

Downtown Developments Commission ponders parking

DDA moving ahead with planning process


The Harbor Springs Downtown Development Authority (DDA) announced they have received commitments from private donors for 90-percent of needed dollars to bring on Wade Trim Inc. consulting firm. “The checks are on their way,” said board president, Rob Mossburg, during the board’s May 16 meeting. A suggested public information gathering process will be the first step in an effort to improve Harbor Springs’ central business district and waterfront spaces; it is tentatively set for the weekend of July 21. The board agreed that while most Fourth of July visitors may have gone, Regatta fans should be arriving. The hope is also to utilize a long weekend, with the inclusion of a Thursday night Street Musique. May’s meeting also served an educational purpose, bringing Becky Goodman, Petoskey’s Downtown Director, to speak on her experience with Michigan’s Main Street Program. The Main Street Program is a program that aims to support and improve Michigan downtowns; it has had proven success in communities like Boyne City. -CONTINUED on page 3.

Parking was the word of the day during this month’s Harbor Springs Planning Commission meeting. During the Thursday, May 17 meeting, discussions surrounded current and possible zoning code language, new business requirements, and an on-going study of parking needs. Part of the push for examining the city’s current zoning language-- specifically for new business/restaurant parking needs-- is a result of the new Depot Dining Club, located in the old train depot on Bay Street in downtown Harbor Springs. The Dining Club was granted a Special Land Use permit to operate a full line restaurant earlier this year, but because of zoning language, was restricted to only operating for dinner hours (which requires less parking spaces, per the current code). “In order to get out from under their operating restrictions, they needed to provide off-site parking,” noted city manager Tom Richards in a phone interview Tuesday morning. “The code states these spaces must be ‘irrevocable’ and there had been difficulty in finding arrangements to meet that part of the standard.” The Depot Dining Club requested they be allowed to lease nine spaces behind the Fischer building on Third Street and nine more on the east side of the Holy Childhood Complex. While the spaces would not be ‘irrevocable,’ the club noted operations would revert back to limited hours, should the spaces ever become unavailable. “The concept is supported by the code, but not the code’s -CONTINUED on page 3.

Leaders talk ‘placemaking’ at local summit in Petoskey By DANIELLE McINTOSH Harbor Light Newspaper

Inspired by a placemaking summit in Traverse City last year, local leaders in Petoskey and Harbor Springs decided to host a summit of their own focusing on the regional health of the economy. In Harbor Springs, placemaking efforts are being used to develop a “sense of place” or a pride in an area. “It attracts jobs and economic development,” said Matt McCauley, of the North West Council of Governments, organizers of the event. The summit, held Monday, May 21 at North Central Community College, hosted around 100 local leaders and focused on developing a regional identity. “The success of northwest lower Michigan will come when all communities reach their full potential,” McCauley said. He went on to note, ”It’s about the locals identifying unique places and making them great.”

The first speaker of Monday’s summit was Dan Gilmartin, a Detroit Native and the executive director of the Michigan Municipal League. He emphasized the economic importance of placemaking, and the idea that places should attract people and business. Gilmartin also touched on the trend of young professionals choosing where they -CONTINUED on page 9.

Memorial Day... ‘Short days ago, We lived...’ Memorial Day was established in the 1860’s in the south as a remembrance to those killed in the Civil War. The first official observance of Memorial Day was May 30, 1868 and has continued throughout our country since then to honor those killed while in the service of their country.

“A veteran is someone who wrote a blank check, payable to the United States of America, for an amount up to and including their own life.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following history of the poppy program is being shared with Harbor Light readers thanks to local Legion Auxiliary member Marge Ward.

In 1915, during World War I, Doctor John McCrae, a Lt. Col. in the Canadian Army performed a funeral service for a young friend and soldier, Lt. Alexis Helmer of Ottawa who was killed by a shell burst on May 2, 1915. Lt. Helmer’s death deeply affected Dr. McCrae. In a nearby cemetery Dr. McCrae could see the wild poppies amid the white crosses on the battlefields. He wrote a poem that described what he saw on the deserted battlefields of western Belgium and Northern France – a region called Flanders. That poem is...

“In Flanders Fields”

- Gene Castagnetti, Director of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Hawaii. (American Legion Magazine)

-Submitted by Harbor Springs American Legion Auxiliary/ Marge Ward

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row That make our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe;

To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. In 1917, a teacher from Georgia, Moina Michael, became a volunteer with the YMCA Overseas War Workers. While on duty, she read the poem that Dr. McCrae had written. His words haunted her and she pledged to keep the faith and always to wear a red poppy as a sign of remembrance for those who died. She wrote a response to Dr. Mc- Crae’s poem. Her poem is ..

“We Shall Keep The Faith”

File photo of George E. McDonald, Jr. who was killed in action in Vietnam, an 18-year old from Harbor Springs, in April, 1968.

And now the Torch and Poppy Red We wear in honor of our dead. Fear not that ye have died for naught; We’ll teach the lesson that ye wrought In Flanders fields. Moina Michael became known as the “Poppy Lady”. She continued instructing a group of disabled veterans and noted their need for financial and occupational assistance. She lobbied The American Legion to have veterans assemble poppies for distribution. The poppy was made the official memorial flower of The American Legion in 1920 and the American Legion Auxiliary in 1921. The poppy program was made one of our national programs in 1924. (American Legion Auxiliary Magazine). Each poppy is made by a disabled or hospitalized veteran and each year over 25 million red crepe paper poppies are distributed by American Legion Auxiliary volunteers. Please support this veteran’s program and be proud to wear a poppy.

Oh you who sleep in Flanders fields, Sleep sweet – to rise anew! We caught the torch you threw And holding high, we keep the Faith With All who died. We cherish, too, the poppy red That grows on fields where valor led; It seems to signal to the skies That blood of heroes never dies, But lends a luster to the red Of the flower that blooms above the dead In Flanders fields.

Letters Should we attract new students to Harbor Springs? To the Editor: I have been reading the articles in the paper about the Harbor Springs Schools and their budget woes for the past several years, and I have a couple of questions. Several years ago (when we had approximately 1,100 students) the school chose to opt out of participating in“Schools of Choice” because of concerns they would lose their “out of formula” status if their student population increased too much. Are we still not accepting students from out of the District? I see from theschools’ web site that we were not accepting new students for the 201112 school year. So here we are in 2012 with fewer than 1,000 students. Would it make sense to revisit the “opt out” decision and perhapslook at this as an opportunity for generating revenue – vs. budget cutting alone? How many additional students would it

take to jeopardize our “out of formula” status? Perhaps it would be helpful if “out of formula” was explained (again), and information provided about what our average per student cost is vs. the foundation allowances received by other “in-formula” Districts. Is “out of formula” still a good thing to be? What is being done to attract new students to the District? Cutting curriculum choices like Multi-Age, French, and Learning Center are not going to encourage parents to enroll their children here – in fact, these cuts have got to give Harbor Springs parents pause about keeping their children in the Harbor SpringsSchool District. We should all be concerned and involved in the health of our local schools – you cannot have a vibrant community with an ailing school. Lynn Glahn

The intent of the regulation is to protect public health, safety and welfare; provide adequate separation of primary caregiver facilities from schools, churches and other areas where children congregate; and mitigate negative secondary impacts associated with medical marihuana use and handling in residential areas. Further information and a complete copy of the proposed amendment is available for review at the Township Hall (526.7361). If you have questions or comments regarding these hearings, you are welcome to address the Planning Commission at the hearing, or you may contact the Township Hall at 526-7361. Written comments can be submitted by noon on the date of the hearing to the Township Hall, 8000 S M-119, Harbor Springs, MI 49740.

that consisted of training to promote personal leadership growth among the individuals as well as opportunities to experience and learn about different facets of the community. Those facets included local history, government, human services, education, economy, and the environment. Chip Hansen, President of the Charlevoix County Community Foundation delivered the keynote address at Friday’s graduation ceremony. Hansen told three stories to the class that emphasized three different qualities of leaders: the ability to plan ahead, perseverance, and the importance of leading by

example. He provided small gifts to the class to remind them of these three “pillars of leadership” and urged the class members to incorporate those pillars into their lives. Hansen was followed to the podium by class members Dana Andrews and Matt McCauley. They were selected by their classmates to speak on behalf of the class. Andrews reflected on the many connections he made through the LLT program with area community leaders, as well as with his classmates. “I didn’t realize how impactful these relationships (with my classmates) would be,” he said. “It’s a very big part of LLT,” he added.

What a Yes vote on library question could mean... To the Editor: The Harbor Springs Library hosted Library Day on May 18th, drawing a large and appreciative crowd of approximately 200, which was dazzled by the recent and significant renovations. So this seems like a good time to clarify what a yes vote on the November 6th millage election would mean. A check with the National Center For Educational Statistics reveals that the State of Michigan has .279 public libraries per service population of 10,000 people. The Harbor Springs Library has a servicearea of only 8,000 people. Adding an additional library would result in a library to service-area population ratio nine times the state average. So clearly a yes vote could not result in two libraries for Harbor Springs. Instead, it would mean replacing the present millage-free library and leaving the upper story of the downtown library building an empty shell. Asking the generous supporters of the present century-old Harbor Springs Library to continue their support in the face of an increased property tax for a new and unnecessary district library would seem not only unreasonable, but unfair as well. So if you want the present historic landmark library to disappear, a yes vote on November 6th will accomplish that, as well as an increase in Week: your property tax . Bob Ross Pellston

6  Harbor Light Community Newsweekly By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 Decoration Day was enacted to honor fallen veterans from the Civil War, but the day grew to encompass honoring the memory of all veterans. It became Memorial Day and has morphed into a day to remember all of those that we have lost, definitely the veterans with all the honor they deserve, but also friends and family that are no longer with us. I know that for many in this community, this will be a bittersweet day as this will be the first year that they take the day to remember recently lost loved ones. The cemeteries come alive with flowers and flags, decorating the graves as tradition demands, but remember that it can also be a nice day to remember the veterans who are still with us. I know from watching my father that nothing makes him happier than when someone comes up to him and thanks him for his service; I’m sure he’s not the only vet that feels that way. One outing that we usually did every Memorial Day was a trip to the park at the top of the stadium for a picnic. Picnics are a traditional Memorial Day event, dating back to the Civil War days when they used to have a “dinner on the ground” as part of their Decoration Day activities. Food somehow tasted better when it was outside. Memorial Day also marks the beginning of the summer season. The Fourth of July used to stand as the real beginning of the season here, but as more and more people arrive earlier and earlier, most seasonal businesses open for the summer around the Memorial Day weekend. I grew up hearing that you shouldn’t plant anything before Memorial Day because of the chance of frost, but I succumbed to temptation with the great weather a couple of weekends ago and, as predicted, that was followed by frost so I will indeed be replacing some

of the flowers. You’d think someday I’d realize that those old traditions are traditions for a reason and worth listening to, but that doesn’t seem to happen and based on the number of people who were buying flowers that weekend, I’m not alone in my misplaced optimism. We have been blessed with two glorious May weekends thus far and though there is a slight chance of rain, the upcoming holiday weekend is predicated to be almost as good. This is just the most

amazing time of the year, with all the beautiful shades of green and the cloudless blue sky, the birds are all back and the smell of flowers fills the air. We lost many lilacs because of the bizarre weather this spring, but there are enough left to make the air wonderfully fragrant right now. We also go from months of little or nothing to do to having so many activities that you can’t possibly do them all. Last Friday was another successful golf tournament to raise money for the Jeffrey

Bodzick Memorial Scholarship Foundation; as much as I would love to participate in that, I would probably be beaten to death with a club by whatever poor souls wound up in a foursome behind my pathetic game.

Society, a great cause if ever there was one. Saturday was the Grateful Dog Walk to raise money for the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society. Top money raiser was regular LTBHS volunteer Ian Whitman, who was participating for his third year (not bad for an eleven year old), followed by Marisa Mroczkowski. Congratulations to both of them and to all who participated or donated. Saturday and Sunday saw thousands of bicyclists take to the roads in the Annual Zoo-de-Mack bike ride and a tip of the hat to them; that ride in those temperatures had to be a little grueling, one would think. Now we are into the graduation party or wedding every weekend season, with festivals galore to fill in any empty moments. This weekend, there is the Memorial Weekend pageant in Mackinaw City, along with their parade on Monday. Harbor Springs will host their usual parade and events for Memorial, as will most of the area towns. So get out and enjoy the weekend, but keep in mind that it isn’t all about barbecues and parties; take a moment to remember the real reason for the celebration. Two families who will be remembering this year are the families of Dolores Marszalec and Jeremiah Backus, both of whom passed away last week. Many of you will remember Mrs. Marszalec from the lunch room at the school or because you know one of her many children. Jeremiah didn’t live here, but his mother, Myrna Backus Moore grew up here and he has many relatives in the area. Our thoughts go out to both families on what will undoubtedly be a difficult weekend for them. Congratulations to Glenn and Barb Ernst, who celebrated 60 years of marriage on May 17. Also congratulations going out to Jennifer Girardin Kruzel on her completion of the nursing program at NCMC. Both of those are feats are definitely worth mentioning.

Chick’s creative advertising copy Editor’s Note: When calling for weekly advertising from shops in Harbor Springs, one of the more engaging stops would be Erwin’s Drug Store.With each week would come another rhyme about this or that service or product. “Chick” proved an endless source of creative “copy” that, we’ve been told, provided our readers with a chuckle. Each “pitch” floated forth with its own distinctive wit and charm. Here are a few, just for fun.

* * * BACK IN 1881... A year after this store was founded, we ran this advertisement in this paper, CITY DRUG STORE HARBOR SPRINGS East Main Street Drugs & Medicines, Wall Paper, Paints, Varnishes, Brushes, Oils, Toilet Goods, etc. kept constantly on hand. PRESCRIPTIONS CAREFULLY COMPOUNDED Night calls promptly attended to. Residence in the new building. M.J. ERWIN

We ran this ad in ‘81; When Harbor Springs had just begun. We still are anxious as can be To serve you well in ‘53. A hundred things like window shades, We’ve long released to other trades; but thanks to you who helped us “click” From “M.J.” on down through to “Chick.” Though you’re a “Figure Philbert” And think juggling them is sporty; You’d better have the answers right When filling out “1040.” So get yourself a ledger And a column book or two; You’ll have the facts to pay that tax To Internal Revenue. If fishy smells pervade your home Now that the perch are here... Deodorizing bombs and sprays Will clear “that atmosphere.”

ABOUT TOWN How to place your listings in this section

At the Movies with Cynthia Morse Zumbaugh

The Dictator I have to be honest enough to admit that I chose this movie because of its short running time. I wasn’t too excited about any of the options this week, so my choice was colored by not wanting to spend time in a theater instead of being outside in the wonderful weather. I wasn’t a big fan of Borat or Bruno; I found them crude and the humor wasn’t my style and I fully expected this to be more of the same. To a great degree, it is; if you are easily offended, stay out of the theater. I actually preferred this one to writer and star Sacha Baron Cohen’s earlier offerings; it was no less crude, the humor was no less sophomoric, but it had a much better plot and some funny performances and premises. Cohen plays General Admiral Alladeen, dictator of Wadiya. He is tricked by his right hand man, Tamir (Ben Kingsley,) into going underground to avoid assassination and is forced to live as a commoner in New York City. Scorsese had it right all those years ago; these are mean streets, especially for someone completely unprepared for this life. Meanwhile, a double carries on in Alladeen’s place in public in Wadiva. Alladeen falls in love with a tree-hugging, extreme leftwing feminist, so we know the clash of cultures will provide plenty of moments. In fact, Zoey (Anna Faris) even protests against Alladeen and his regime, not knowing that the man she rails against is in reality the man she is accepting into her life. This movie has something to offend everyone. Rated R, the language runs the gamut; they don’t miss too many words, there is nudity and sexual situations, some violence played mainly for laughs and enough bigoted and offensive remarks to last a lifetime. If you can drop any pretense of political correctness when you enter this theater, you will laugh at this movie. Not all the jokes are gold, that is for sure; some of them fall completely flat, but they are non-stop and if only 50-percent strike your fancy, that still delivers many more laughs than most comedies.

Superior State University and a MA in Political Science from Central Michigan University. Currently Veselenak is an adjunct instructor of Michigan History and American Government at Alpena Community College in Alpena, Michigan. He enjoys writing about various historical and nature-oriented events in the State of Michigan. In the past five years, Veseleank and his son Gavin, 13, have driven to local areas of Presque Isle County, Michigan, searching for massasauga rattlesnakes crossing roadways on warm summer evenings. Their purpose is two-fold: to rescue the snakes from death on roads and to observe the snake which is disappearing in Michigan and surrounding states. Veselenak has always been interested in Michigan’s eastern massasauga rattler. He only began to seriously study them after finding a few while searching for mountain lion scat (droppings) in remote areas of Presque Isle County as a volunteer for the Michigan Wildlife Conservancy. At the time, the Michigan Wildlife Conservancy was heavily involved in documenting evidence of the presence of a natural, surviving original population of cougars within the State. Veselenak’s interest in a remnant population of cougars (panthers) triggered his growing interest in the native massasauga rattlesnake. This was the impetus for his book Swamp Rattler. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and the author will be signing books after his presentation. This program is open to the public and admission is free. The sponsors of this event are the Petoskey District Library and Friends of the Library. For more information, contact the Library at 231-758-3121.
