Board approves budget; teachers, administrators get pay increase
Market in Full Swing
By Kate Bassett Harbor Light Newspaper
On Monday, June 23, the Harbor Springs Board of Education approved administrator, support staff, and teacher contracts for the 20142015 academic year, as well as the the 2013-2014 amended budget and the 2014-2015 operational budget. “A lot of work went into this,” superintendent Mark Tompkins said, noting he is “hopeful” the district will soon begin to operate “in the black” again, after several years of deficit spending due to increased expenses and a decrease in revenues (a result of a drop in taxable values). According the the preliminary budget-- it will be amended several times over the course of the year-in 2014-2015, the district will likely operate in a deficit of $161,448, using fund balance (savings) to cover the difference. As of June 2014, the district has some $2.3 million in its fund balance (only $1.8 million of which is “spendable”). “Tonight, we are looking at just a template for the future,” Tompkins said of the budget numbers. “It’s our best guess, and it is very conservative.” District financial manager Pam Gibson explained that because the district relies on non-homestead property taxes as its main source of revenue, it is a challenge to pinpoint exact numbers at this point in the year. “There is a July Board of Review (for tax appeals) and another one in December,” Gibson said. “A lot of changes can happen that are out of our control, and sometimes we just don’t have the information. It’s a challenge.” -CONTINUED on page 2.

School board passes budget Camp Daggett invites paddlers for Kayak for a Cause -CONTINUED from page 1.
Several board members expressed concern over the quick turnaround of the budget-- the board received a finalized version just hours before the budget hearing and meeting on Monday night-- and while Tompkins explained they are crunching numbers up to the last possible minute, he said next year they would work to allow the board to review the budget for at least a week. One of the biggest discussions of the night was about administrative contracts, and specifically, about the two percent cost-of-living increase in salaries for the district’s administrative teams. The administrative contracts are all for two years. “I’m very grateful for our administrators taking four years with no increase at all, and I do strongly feel this increase is warranted and justified. However, we’ve not reached a balanced budget yet,” said board member Paul Fairbairn. “This is hard to talk about because we are discussing peoples’ livelihoods, and doing so in a public meeting. I do think we are doing a disservice to our community when we have to borrow money (from savings) to pay for an increase.” Board member Bryan Lauer agreed. “This might be the only place in the world that gives raises when the budget is in the red,” he said. “There has been a lot of negativity in the last couple years and people have weathered that storm,” board member Rob Fuhrman said, noting he is in complete favor of the raises. “It’s a nominal amount of money. We have talked about the percentage we are comfortable with in terms of our fund balance-- 15 percent-- which we still exceed. I’m very grateful we’ve gotten to this point. We’ve been able to maintain the programs we have and keep the cuts away
from children so far. There was a lot of work that went into this and I feel very confident in what we are doing,” he said, adding “we need to give a little to keep the conversation open and running and so we can keep moving forward.” Board president Gary Morse stressed it is important to keep working toward a balanced budget. “It’s important to remember this budget is created on worst case scenarios,” he noted. In a roll call vote, the board unanimously approved administrative contracts. The same unanimous approval followed for support staff contracts and teacher contracts, though Fairbairn expressed the same concerns over the teachers’ one year 1.25 percent cost of living pay increase. During the meeting, the board also approved Chris Cerrudo as the district’s new technology director. Cerrudo replaces Chris Nelson, who left the district to become Superintendent of Suttons Bay School District. Cerrudo comes to Harbor Springs Public Schools from North Central Michigan College’s technology staff. He has also worked with Kalkaska Public Schools and the University of Michigan’s Biology Station. “We had two very strong candidates, and Chris won with his strong problem solving, communication, and professional development skills,” Tompkins said. “I think he is the perfect fit for where we are with technology. We’ve built a robust infrastructure, rolled out the new computers/ipads, and now we are at the most important phase: supporting teachers and students.” Cerrudo was approved on a one year contract. A teacher assistant and additional part-time “help desk” technology staff person was also approved by the board.

Planning Commission approves site plan for $6.2 million senior complex The Harbor Springs Planning Commission last week unanimously approved the site plan for the construction of a new $6.2 million senior living building on the Village of Hillside campus at Traverse and Main Streets in downtown Harbor Springs. The approval came at the June 19 meeting. The new one and two
bedroom apartments will be barrier free and include elevators. In addition, an expanded Friendship Center of Harbor Springs will be part of the overall project. Construction is slated to begin in 2015 after fundraising goals are reached. The two story building is designed to fit with the landscape with an aestheti-

cally pleasing exterior and grounds. Additional parking spaces are planned to accommodate Friendship Center participants. “Demand for senior rental apartments is expected to increase by 17% over the next five years,” said Webb Martin, current president of the Board of Directors at Hillside. “The
new building will provide eight additional apartments, but more importantly, it will replace the existing 24 units with apartments that better meet the needs of seniors.” The Village of Hillside campus is also the home of the Friendship Center of Harbor Springs. The Friendship Center provides hot lunches, social activities, outings, medical and financial services, and more, four days a week. The current room is far too small
to serve seniors’ needs. The renewal project will increase the size from 672 square feet to over 2,000. A fundraising effort is underway to raise $1.5 million to finance a portion of the construction. As part of that effort, Fred and Marty Walstrom will host a festive summer party at The Boathouse on Sunday, July 13 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Area restaurants will feature local specialties and The Young Americans

With the Fourth of July just around the corner, we see the United States flag flying everywhere. It has been driving me nuts on the way to work each day because there is a house on my route with the U.S. flag along with some others flying in front of their home. I admit to being woefully ignorant regarding the flag, but I do know that you are not supposed to have any other flags higher than or to the right of the U.S. flag. I decided to do a little research to see what is law and what is tradition. According to what we all learned in school, Betsy Ross sewed the first United States Flag in 1776; that is disputed. In 1777, the Continental Congress described the flag but gave no reasoning for the design. George Washington believed that the red came from the English uniforms,
the stars from the sky and the white for the home country. It was later explained as the white representing purity, red for valor and blue for vigilance and justice. The National Flag Code was drafted in the twenties and signed into law by F.D.R. in 1942 and although it is law, the Supreme Court ruled that there can be no enforcement without a conflict with Freedom of Speech. Leave it to the US to keep a law on the books that they cannot enforce. Probably a positive, since there are many parts of the code that are widely ignored. For example, the flag is never supposed to be used as part of any advertising. It is also not supposed to be displayed in any part on any articles of clothing except patches on a uniform, that sort of thing. Good thing there is no enforcement; Meadowlark

Lemon and company would have been locked up years ago. And technically speaking, since the Code refers to not just the flag itself, but also the standards and colors, the symbols for both the Republican and Democratic parties along with the symbol that President Obama used in his advertising, would all be in violation. The flag is never supposed to be draped over anything, except a coffin in specific circumstances. It should never be gathered or bunched up (but buntings are okay; that confused me.) How many Olympians have draped the flag over their shoulders like a cape? That’s a no-no. Finally, it should always be raised first and lowered last and should never touch the ground. As the Flag Code is law, it is constantly evolving and changing. In 2005, for
example, Homeowners Associations were prohibited from disallowing homeowners from flying the flag. There are currently several pending changes to the code, including one prohibiting flags from being made elsewhere and imported. The Code states, “No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America” and “the flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing.” I appreciate that definition, but I like wearing my Fourth of July colors. On a different note, I was very excited to see the Morris home on Ann Street being renovated so beautifully and even happier to hear that Bill Morris is the one handling the renovation because he has moved back home. Welcome back to Bill and his family. We need to wish a farewell to several very nice people

Emmet County. According to the application written by Logan Bickel, a YAC officer, and Sara Ward, YAC Advisor, twenty-five members of the committee aimed to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Youth Endowment Fund by adding to it. They did so by first, learning more about endowment, next learning about a fund development campaign, then crafting an appeal letter as a group, and asking a few friends or family to contribute to the Youth Endowment Fund. To add credibility to the request, they contributed on their own with piggy banks. To date, the effort has received over $3,000 in response to the appeal letters and over $200 in dollars and cents added to piggy banks. “I am so excited that our YAC was given an award for our focus on fund development this year,” said Kelsey Nuorala, a recent graduate of Petoskey High School who served as a YAC officer last year. “We are very good at considering requests and giv-
ing Youth Endowment grant dollars away, but until this year we didn’t know much about what it takes to bring dollars in,” Nuorala added. The CMF Youth Philanthropy and Service Camp is an annual gathering of youth grantmakers and their advisors with a focus on best practices, youth empowerment, grantmaking, and fund development. This June 450 young people attended the joint conference that included service learners with the LEAGUE Michigan. YAC members Sydney Chambers, Claire Fleming, and Max Meyerson attended with YAC Advisor Sara Ward at Central Michigan University. Former YAC member Ellen Lively, in addition to Ward, served on the Michigan Community Foundations Youth Project Committee to plan the conference.

Featured artist named for Women’s Club Art Fair at Nub’s Nob Al Dicken of Northern Rock has been chosen as this year’s Featured Artist for the Nub’s Nob Art Fair, sponsored by The Women’s Club of Northern Michigan, to be held on July 9 at Nub’s Nob Ski Area in Harbor Springs from 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. In choosing stone as his artistic medium, Al remarks that “Stone is natural, beautiful and forever. Owning a Northern Rock table brings a distinctive piece embracing the beauty of nature to your home.” Al is a former high school teacher, administrator and coach. He attended college in Iowa but Michigan has always
been his home. Al has always enjoyed finding and restoring antique furniture. When he and his wife retired to northern Michigan, he expanded this skill and has created a unique use of cut stone as a replacement for standard table tops. In addition to using antique wood and metal table bases and custom log tables, Al has added a line of custom manufactured metal table bases to his inventory. These tables have removable legs to make shipping them easier. All metal tables can be used year round both inside and outside of your home. Each northern Michigan table
is a unique piece, highlighting the beauty of natural stone. The material Al uses is mostly Michigan rock though some pieces include rocks from Canada. Each slice of stone is individually cut and then tumbled for several hours to remove the rough edges. Cement board is cut to fit the top surface of the table or in some cases a cut-out insert into a wood table. The cut stone is then artfully arranged, mudded in and grouted using high-end tile grout. A drop-edge of cut stone is added to some of his table designs.

Thanks to the efforts of several friends of North Country Kids (NCK), the children involved in NCK programs will have the opportunity to tend and nurture three garden plots this summer. Board members Norma Brown, Ginny Walden and Liz Rodham spearheaded the project with the help of several friends, and Christian’s Renolda nursery donated vegetables and flowers to help get the gardens off to a great start. This will be a fun, ongoing summer project for the kids! North Country Kids really is a great place to be a kid!

The pathology reports revealed stage four cancer, and Tyler immediately began researching his options While looking for alternative treatment procedures, Tyler’s sister Bree Phillips and friend Jason Dika recommended starting a ketogenic diet, which he started within a week of surgery. This diet is a high-fat, adequate protein, low-carbohydrate diet meant to starve the cancer cells of glucose and increase the use of ketones for energy, in an act called ketosis. Rovin also recommended Tyler to colleague Dr. Ken Schwartz, who is currently doing a Ketogenic diet study at Michigan State University which Phillips could take part in and is still considering this option. As additional pathology reports were received, it was discovered that Tyler has a particular gene IDH1, that makes him a candidate for a second, more extensive (and risky) surgery to clean up more of the cancer cells. Currently, Phillips is still weighing this option. His sister Bree recently moved to Marquette from Portland, OR to be with her brother and assist him in any way possible, including cooking, maintaining a fundraiser web page, and traveling with him to and from doctors visits. As of last week, the outpouring of love and support for Tyler and his family has been astounding. As of press time the fundraising website has reached $8,900 of its $20,000 goal. The Marquette Climbing Co-op threw a party raising over $1,800. Tyler has been recieving much needed items for his specific/expensive diet from an Amazon.com wishlist. Tyler’s employer, the Marquette Food Co-op, has also allowed him to work when able and take the necessary time off to visit the doctors and make sure he receives adequate rest. The community of Marquette, and friends traveling from Harbor Springs, descended on the Ore Dock Brewing Company last Wednesday, June 18, Tyler’s birthday, for a “Toast to Tulip!” fundraiser that raised an additional $12,000. “We believe around 250-300 people attended the fundraiser,” said Tyler’s mom Diane Munson. “It was a huge success and surpassed our expectations. Anjila, the manager of Ore Dock Brewery, headed this event with help from the Marquette Co-op and people that just wanted to help. Anjila knew Tyler and contacted us wanting to do this. She has put more planning and effort into this than anyone. We are so very thankful. Forty one people showed up just to help set it up.” The event included music by local musicians, seed bombs and starters from MQT Growth and Seeds and Spores, a silent auction of art-work donated by local artists, a kimchi (a traditional Korean side dish made of fermented vegetables) station set up by the Co-op to demonstrate how its made and help package it for Tyler, pulled pork from The Fitzgerald of Eagle RIver, MI, and much much more. “Tyler has remained so very

Stormwater Runoff: Slow It Down, Spread It Out, and Soak It In
Discovering ways to preserve our most precious resource
Keeping vigilant in minimizing impact of stormwater runoff on area lakes and streams Editor’s Note: We take the gift of our natural resources very seriously here in northern Michigan, and we ask our guests and visitors to do the same. Keeping this area as pristine and protected as possible is a privilege we all share. We can be good stewards of our greatest gift-- the lakes and rivers of this region-by taking simple steps to lessen the impact of stormwater runoff, the biggest source of “nonpoint” pollution our waters face. Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council has taken the lead in reducing this threat, and we checked in with expert Jennifer Gelb who shares insights and ways to help.
By Charles O’Neill Harbor Light Newspaper
For those of us fortunate enough to live and work along the shores of Lake Michigan and all of the glittering inland lakes and waterways, taking for granted the health of waters may come a bit too easily. They look so blue and clear. And, for the most part, they are healthy. But vigilance, doing our part every day in keeping those waters clean is an
important responsibility. Guardians of the waters-- the folks at the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council-- have plenty on their plate. But one of the most important messages, one they try in myriad ways to reinforce, is the negative impact of stormwater runoff and what we all can do to minimize its damage. Given the heavy snowfall this winter, and the wet spring, evidence of the power of runoff could be seen in
roaring rivers and flooded roadways. According to the Watershed Council, stormwater runoff is considered one of the main sources of water pollution nationwide. “Stormwater runoff is generated when precipitation from rain and snowmelt flows over land or impervious surfaces (paved streets, parking lots and building rooftops) and does not soak into the ground. Stormwater accumulates debris, chemicals, sediment, nutrients and other pollutants that adversely affect water quality of nearby lakes, streams and wetlands,” the Watershed Council notes on its website. In addition to just being aware of runoff, people can take small actions, like washing your car on the grass
Spreading it on
Over-application of fertilizers is a significant source of pollution to water. Use the proper amount of fertilizer to keep your lawn green and prevent algae blooms in our lakes and streams. It’s a waste of money to apply fertilizer to your lawn it if doesn’t need it. The only way to know how much fertilizer your lawn needs is to have your soil tested. Contact your MSU Extension for a soil test kit that will help you determine which, if any, nutrients your soil needs. Visit their website at http://msue.anr.msu.edu/resources/soil_test_kit_self-mailer for details. Avoid overwatering your lawn, too. Consider using a soaker hose instead of a sprinkler. If you have an irrigation system, be sure rotors are watering the grass and not your driveway or sidewalk. Excess water flows off your lawn picking up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants and carries them to nearby lakes and streams. A greenbelt buffer of mixed native vegetation along shorelines will prevent sediments and excess fertilizers from washing into waterways.
instead of the driveway, that add up to positive, large-scale change. Gelb is a big advocate of creating rain gardens for those who live in urban settings or near lakes and streams. “A rain garden is an attractive, sunken landscape bed of native plants that captures stormwater runoff so it can be absorbed into the ground and cleansed of pollution,” the Watershed Council website explains. Rain gardens can serve as habitat for birds and butterflies. They can be designed as part of formal landscape amenities, or part of a larger garden. “They help put in practice the stormwater principle of: slow it down, spread it out, and soak it in.” Gelb said such gardens can reduce the runoff from residential roofs that would otherwise go into the storm sewer or into a nearby lake or stream. The Watershed Council can provide some guidelines, and a few local landscape contractors know how to build them. Gelb noted the gardens are not that difficult to construct (there are a plethora of resources online and on the Tip of the Mitt’s website). One of the bigger rain garden projects completed by Gelb and the Watershed Council was for the Charlevoix Public Library. Gelb has also worked with the Bay View Association and said she is hoping for a grant that could provide an example rain garden in Petoskey or Harbor Springs. Rain gardens are not something everyone needs to consider. A home in the country with plenty of open land probably does not need a rain garden. Gelb and the Watershed

What’s the Best Location for a Rain Garden? Rain gardens can be planted in either sun or shade, or somewhere in between. Locate them at least 10 feet away from any building to protect the foundation and never on top of a septic system. You will want to make sure the site has good drainage, too. Don’t be tempted to put the rain garden in a part of the yard where water already ponds because the goal of a rain garden is to encourage infiltration, and soggy areas indicate where infiltration is slow. How Big Should My Rain Garden Be? You may want to consult a professional or other rain garden resource to determine the space requirements, but a general rule of thumb is it should cover the area equal to about 20-30% of its contributing drainage area. The depth of the rain garden also depends on a number of site factors, but a typical rain garden depth is about 8”. How Much Does A Rain Garden Cost? The cost of a rain garden depends on its area, the types, sizes, and quantity of plants, site preparation, as well as the added cost of any additional features, such as accent boulders. An average cost of a rain garden is about $8 per square foot. How Do I Maintain A Rain Garden? Rain gardens require similar maintenance to other landscaped gardens. Most of the effort will go into the first year, when it is important to nurture the garden with regular watering, weeding, and mulching. You’ll find after the first year that maintenance is limited to mostly weeding and periodic mulching. As for fertilizing needs: there are none! Refrain from applying fertilizers - your rain garden will be getting plenty of nutrients from the runoff! From Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council Council are happy to provide more answers about rain gardens for folks in urban or shoreline settings, in particular.

10th Annual Little Traverse CROP Hunger Walk to take place June 28 Registration for the 10th Little Traverse CROP Hunger Walk begins at 8:30, this Saturday, June 28, at Evelyn Hall, Bay View. For nine years the communities around Little Traverse Bay have walked in the CROP Hunger Walk to honor those who must walk each day to get food and water. Over $200,000 has been donated. More than $50,000 has gone to The Manna Food Project whose clientele has doubled during that time. The remainder helps Church World Service provide aid to those suffering from natural and manmade disasters. During the past four years, CWS has continued to aid earthquake victims in Haiti. They have spent $2 million in material
aid and initiated solid, sustaining programs. Here in the United States, they have recently been on the scene to help mudslide, flood, and tornado victims in Colorado, Illinois and Oklahoma.
Grand Marshals for The LittleTraverse CROP Hunger Walk, June 28, 9:00, Bay View are: Dave Kring (Dave Kring Chevrolet-Cadillac), John Johnson (Fletch’s GMC, Buick Auid), and Steve Brown
(Brown Motors). They will lead the walkers across the Sky Bridge accompanied by Scott Thornburg’s trumpeters and Pat Sehr’s ensemble, while rockers enjoy the music on Evelyn Hall’s shady porch.
