Last parade driving ‘the Mack’

Holiday Festivities Around the Bay Small town celebrations are alive and well in northern Michigan, with plenty of patriotic traditions to choose from during the Fourth of July holiday week. Parades, parties, art fairs and fireworks can be found in communities all around Little Traverse Bay starting Wednesday, July 3 and continuing through July 6. Here’s a go-to guide for all the red, white, and blue events happening here:

On July 4, the Village of Bay Harbor parade will take place on Main Street in the Village beginning at 11 a.m. The parade will be led by the Petoskey High School Marching Band, followed by festive decorated GEM cars and automobiles, bicycles and our equestrian horses as well as lots of candy and favors for the kids.

July 4 | Harbor Springs Festivities will begin bright and early with the annual Paul Revere Run, which benefits the Harbor Springs track and cross country teams. The three and 10-mile run is open to all ages abilities. Registration takes place from 6:30-7:30 a.m. at the Harbor Springs Police Station. The 10 mile race will begin at 8 a.m. at Zoll Street Park.

For nearly every Fourth of July for the past 24 years, John Cupps, Sr., has driven the Harbor Springs Area Fire Department’s red, 1948 Mack fire truck down Main Street in the Harbor Springs Fourth of July parade. The truck, now long retired from fighting fires in the area, has been with the Department since it was purchased in 1948 under the command of Fire Chief L.E. Juilleret. This will be the last year Cupps will drive the “the Mack” in the parade. The long time Harbor Springs resident, current city council member and businessman will retire from the fire department after serving 42 years as a volunteer firefighter here. Cupps possesses a special level of dedication as a firefighter, risking his life over the years to serve the people of the community, and also saving countless lives along the way. “The first fire I fought was at Club Ponytail here in Harbor Springs,” Cupps recalled. “I was just helping out at the time, and a month after, Joe Juilleret, who was Fire Chief then, put me on the department.” Fighting fires back then was vastly different than it is today, Cupps noted. Today, volunteer firefighters are required to complete some 327 -CONTINUED on page 8.

INSIDE this week Just as we love opportunities to celebrate longtime residents and businesses in our pages, we are excited to share with readers the stories of the young entrepreneurs of Coolhouse Labs, who are making their home- and launching their tech-based companies-- in Harbor Springs this summer. This week, we’re featuring Every Last Morsel, a community marketplace for locally grown foods. Turn inside to read more.

Following the sustainable path By Jessica Evans

in explanation of how the business started. “A time came when I was between jobs and wondering what I should do, so I decided to design a couple of coffins to see how it would go, and since, I’ve designed more.” Matt produces a variety of coffins, including those made from all locally sourced pine and walnut hardwood. Coffins are available stained or unfinished, and with the option for an interior, woven by a local weaver in Alanson, as well as the bed and pillow, sewed by Matt and made with organic cotton produced in the U.S. Even the coffin lid fasteners use wool from sheep raised, sheared, and spun down the road from the family. -CONTINUED on page 7B.

“Live so that you need less, and what you do need, buy consciously.”

Matt and Mary Hohlbein believe in sustainability. They not only believe in it, but practice it in their everyday lives. A large garden and hoophouse provide the family with fresh, healthy produce. Chickens fertilize the garden and also supply the family with eggs and poultry. The Holbein’s 10 acres of property in Bliss is also home to a small herd of goats, which they use for meat and milk. It’s no wonder then, to see this lifestyle extend into their business, Nelnamar (which combines Mary’s name with their two young daughters, Nancy and Nell), creating sustainably produced wooden caskets, and most recently, lightweight custom kayaks. “A friend of ours who is a Hospice nurse told us that there is a real need for affordable coffins,” Matt said Nancy Hohlbein, age 8, ducks into one of the custom lightweight kayaks her family created.

The Downtown Development Authority in Harbor Springs continues to meet on a monthly basis with an overarching goal of long-term sustainability and vitality for downtown. DDA Chair Rob Mossburg said the authority is “continuing to make progress” on the DDA plan, which includes hiring a director (part-time contracted position to start), following the “Four Points Main Street Program” to open up funding avenues for projects via the Michigan Economic Development Council, and working on business recruitment and retention. He said the DDA has already seen the implementation a private entrepreneurial business incubator in town (Coolhouse Labs) and added information on downtown development to the City’s website. “We are also implementing a wayfinding plan for downtown Harbor Springs and developing a Waterfront Enhancement project,” Mossburg said. “These are priorities selected by the DDA after review and consideration of the Wade Trim Downtown Vision Plan.” The plan Mossburg referred to came from a massive communitywide information gathering that -CONTINUED on page 8.

Local Foodie Report: Farmer’s Market and Edible Main Street

Letters to the Editor ‘Creative input rather than roadblocks, negativity....’ To the Editor: I was greatly disappointed to learn that the vote to remove the city tennis courts had failed, especially after the city council looked as if they were in support of replacing them with green space. It seems as hard as we try to come up with ideas to improve our city, those who just don’t want ANY change step up to object and bring a halt to any progress we’ve made. As a tennis player, I can understand why these courts are seldom used. With no dark background, it’s very hard to see the ball against the backdrop of the water or the white buildings on other side. And visitors to our waterfront, whether arriving by land or by water, are currently greeted by acres of blacktop and a two story cyclone fence that says “stay out!”. Removing or relocating the courts would offer a beautiful open space where everyone could enjoy the view of the water or some food and beverage, community concerts and festivals, or just a quiet spot to gather with friends and/

or family. The fact is that a very small percentage of the population has had the exclusive use of the heart of our town for the last 30 years. Isn’t it time they share it with the rest of us, locals, resorters and visitors alike? I would urge those of you who feel the same way to contact Mayor Dika and/or a city council member and let them know that you DO support reasonable changes to our downtown area. We urgently need to renew and re-energize our downtown, and we need everyone’s support and creative input rather than roadblocks and negativity. I think we all want what’s best for Harbor Springs, but it needs to thrive in order to survive for future generations! You only need to look at other cities around our area to see that change is absolutely what is needed to accomplish that. Sincerely, Jim Offield

‘Leaving Harbor Springs with hard feelings...’ To the Editor: Congratulations to the Harbor Springs scholarship recipients, class award winners, high honor, honor and military students of the Class of 2013. Your parents and families should be very proud of you! ALL the students are fantastic young men/women who will go on to do many wonderful and exciting things in their lives. Regrettably an issue needs to be brought to attention though. That is the unhappiness of the parents and others in the district of the failure to recognize the High Honor/ Honor students at Senior Convocation. We understand that the ceremony went long but for those students to be left out with no recognition is unacceptable! These students worked hard for their A’s & A’s/B’s. Weren’t their achievements worth mentioning? When it was asked why this happened it was stated, “we ran out of time” and “well their names were in the program.” Really? We would’ve stayed to see them acknowledged. Being ignored told them “Sorry, you were good, but not good enough.” We all hoped that it would be corrected at the graduation ceremony, but it wasn’t. Then there is the issue of the students who signed up for the military being overlooked that night too. The parents, active military and veterans in this community are livid! These young men/women swore an oath with their lives to protect our country. Why weren’t

Week of July 3-9, 2013

they acknowledged? When that question was posed, the reply was, “only two were here, it wasn’t worth it.” It wasn’t worth it?! Are you kidding me?! What happens if, God forbid, one of them comes home in a casket? The time could have and should have been taken to recognize them before they left. So, we waited hoping that something, anything, would be said. Maybe at the graduation ceremony? Once again, it appears, they like the High Honor/ Honor students were not worth it. A lot of this class, now Harbor Alumni, are leaving this town with hard feelings. Someone once said “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” Ask those young men/women how they felt about being overlooked for their straight A’s & A’s / B’s. Ask those young men/women how they felt about being ignored about the oaths they took to protect us. We can pretty much guarantee that you won’t like the answer. And for the record, this isn’t just a parent of slighted student writing this letter. This is a compilation, acquired over time, of unhappy parents, students of the class of 2013, retired teachers, and community members writing this letter. And we’re asking you, don’t do to the present/ future classes of Harbor what you did to the class of 2013. Amy Peters Harbor Springs

The 4th of July is upon us ~ time flies! Our vendors are planning ahead for two busy days at the market so expect them to have your favorite items, and lots of them! Wednesday, July 3, will be the perfect day to get your meats for grilling on the Fourth ~ locally grown and yummy. Everything you need for the perfect salad, the delicious dessert, the scrumptious nibbles will be available for you to pick up, no slaving in a hot kitchen needed. And on Saturday, July 6, you can come down with friends, shop a little, chat a little, and listen to the Spectrum Bass Quintet, back for another morning of music. We loved them last Saturday and we hope you will, too. Market Sprouts will be in full swing on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. with a holiday theme. The kids have been loving it and are running off to their favorite vendors to spend their fruit and veggie tokens. And please remember....when the barricades are up, the street is closed. For the safety of our vendors and customers, please honor the barricades! Also, starting on July 8, for the months of July and August, the Market will be adding something to its repertoire! We will be joining Fairview Plaza on Monday nights from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. with an evening “mini market”. In addition to the live music and carriage rides, you will be able to pick up fresh food and other goodies from our market vendors. We will still be downtown on Wednesdays and Saturdays, this is just a little EXTRA!

Edible Main Street

It’s not your imagination! The window boxes in downtown Harbor Springs, at Fairview Plaza and the IGA are blooming with fruits and vegetables. As part of Farming for Our Future’s Edible Main Street project, our local merchants, nurseries and some very generous local individuals have come together to offer residents and visitors a “taste of local” ready to pick and eat. As you stroll the streets, browse at Fairview

Plaza or drop into the IGA, you will see little oases of delectable treats free for the picking. We have seen strawberries, peas, tomatoes, lettuce, parsley, oregano and many others growing around town...And we are encouraging you to pick them! We WANT you grab a snack while you are shopping, snip some herbs or nasturtiums for your dinner, cut some lettuce or pick some tomatoes for a healthy afternoon salad ~ eat them yourselves, share them with friends, but take an opportunity to remember what fresh picked produce really tastes like. Our only request is that you pick only what you plan to eat and leave some for others. If you pick lettuce, remember that you should use the outer leaves first, leaving the inner leaves to continue growing. The springs in Harbor are an added bonus, you can rinse your bounty on nearly every corner for immediate gratification. Edible Main Street brochures will be found at local stores and the Chamber of Commerce, listing the participating merchants. Senior volunteers will be also be around town caring for these treats. You may spot them wearing Edible Main Street aprons, ready to answer your questions or direct you to a window box or pot. Farming for Our Future is an organization that believes everyone should know where their food comes from and have the opportunity to experience the amazing taste difference of food picked when it is ready to eat, not just “ready to ship”. In addition to Edible Main Street, FFOF supports school field trips to the farm where several hundred children get first hand farm experience every year, as well as the local community garden in Petoskey and the Harbor Springs Farmers’ Market. Meet you at the market, Cyndi Kramer Market Master

Quotable Moment “It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

When it comes to fireworks safety this Fourth of July, Harbor Springs police chief Dan Branson said all advice boils down to this: “Don’t blow your hands off, and don’t set your property on fire.” Since the state passed a law allowing individuals to own, possess, and set off fireworks that were once illegal in Michigan, Branson said these rules need to be taken extra seriously. “Fireworks that were prohibited here for a number of years are now allowed to be used the day before, on, and after a national holiday,” Branson said. “That means more people are using bottle rockets, cherry bombs, and other similar fireworks. The law does state you must be 18 or older to do so.” With a long stretch of dry weather in northern Michigan, Branson stressed the police and fire departments are equally encouraging folks to take extra precautions when lighting fireworks of any kind. “The woods and fields are definitely dry, and on a recent drive along the bluff, I noticed how dry things are there too. Even sparklers need monitoring, and we’re just asking people to be very aware this year, even if we get a bit of rain before the Fourth.” In addition to fireworks safety, Branson said he always like to remind those in town to celebrate Independence Day to be aware of increased traffic, to remind children biking or walking to use caution around street corners and crossings, and to think -CONTINUED on page 8.

I’m always torn at this time of year between wanting to get out and see everyone and celebrate the Fourth in high style and wanting to cocoon myself at home and avoid all the crowds and traffic. Even though I understand how important this holiday is to all of the local businesses and that the huge crowds are a good thing, sometimes I miss having the holiday a little more to ourselves. Remember when the parade consisted of little more than the high school band, the Drum and Bugle Corps, some horses, firetrucks, the little league teams, the kids with their fancy decorated bikes and usually some classic cars, including Mr. Hovey, Mr. Cosens and Mr. Kilpatrick

MIKE PIERCE D.D.S. New PatientsFor Week: 7/3/13 Welcome

showing off their fine rides? It is much more elaborate and time consuming now, definitely much more worth the effort with the floats and the various entertainment selections, but wasn’t it also nice to be able to even come late and still get a decent spot to watch the parade? Now there are chairs set up twenty-four hours in advance. One memory that stays with me vividly is how awful those scratchy wool uniforms that we wore to march with the high school band. The grey ones were the worst, but the black ones weren’t much of an improvement and we wore them regardless of the heat. I can remember the way the smelled by the end of the march and that is not a particularly pleasant memory. Where those things ever cleaned or just handed out to new troops each year as is? It’s funny how the Fourth can mean different things as you age. Probably the fireworks are the first big impression; even the little ones like to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah.’ Next comes the parade, first as a spectator and then as a participant when you get old enough to ride a bike or march with a little league team. There are always the picnics and the family fun; I remember

what a huge deal it was to be able to picnic at the park above the football stadium and then hit the beach. Some years we would take a quick trip up the shore to visit the park at Good Hart; that was even better because there were swings and slides there. My mother always took the time to explain where Devil’s Elbow and Horseshoe Bend got their names when we took that drive. Later on, it was all about the party. I’m guessing that at least some of you out there remember trying to get into Bar Harbor that night, fighting the crowds of people that most assuredly exceeded any fire department regulations. Once inside, you hoped you liked the people around you because moving was pretty much an impossibility and hopefully you weren’t too thirsty because that endeavor was generally a lost cause. I remember watching the fireworks from the roof of Bar Harbor one year; best view in town but not an easy seat to get to. One thing that I hope is that at some time during your holiday, at least some recognition is given to the history of the holiday. It doesn’t hurt to remember those 56 brave men who sat in a hot, crowded

room in Philadelphia and assured our future freedom by risking their own lives and signing such a radical document. It is also worth acknowledging those men who, almost a century later, gave their lives on a battlefield in Pennsylvania. Almost 8,000 men died on the fields at Gettysburg, with another 27,500 wounded; such a pivotal battle in the Civil War and such a costly day in our history. A tradition that my husband and I have for the week of the Fourth is to try and watch movies related to the day; 1776, Yankee Doodle Dandy and Gettysburg are three of our favorites. I hope everyone spends the day making their own traditions and wonderful memories. Amid the holiday merriment, we have some sad news to share. Rodger Pellegrom passed away over the weekend and we send our sincerest condolences to Mary, Margaret, Howard, Dan, Tom, Steve and the entire Pellegrom family. Rodger touched many

lives during his long tenure at Boyne Highlands and later while helping out at Out to Lunch and he will be missed. Now, on to our many birthday acknowledgements for this week. On the 4th there will be double celebrations for Amanda Gisel and Stanley Petoskey and a Happy 2nd birthday to Aria Kilmer. On Friday, July 5, we send birthday wishes to Dan Warner, Sr., Pam Whitaker Bielas, Sue Boyer, Tim Markey, Wendy Wilkins Ziegler, David Zyble, Jud Silveous,Vivian Hartman and Stephen Zumbaugh (and a Happy Anniversary wish to my husband.) On Saturday, July 6, Happy Birthday to Chris Jerichow and on the 7th to Cynthia Laughlin Baten and Julie Seamon Kuchnicki. Monday, July 8, I want to send a very special birthday wish to my Aunt Patsy LaCount and on July 9 to Tom Sterly, Velda Krieger and the eternally young Diane Fairbairn. Finally, on July 10, Happy Birthday to Tom Burley and to Dennis Lechowicz.

At your service... Harbor Light reader Scottie Lansill was driving by the Colonial Inn at check-in time recently and noticed a young bellhop wearing quite an outfit. The bellhop, Timmy Brown (son of the inn’s owners, Tim and TriciaBrown), was dressed in a colonial tradition-- something that hasn’t been seen at the hotel in many years. According to Tricia Brown, the hotel used to have a doorman in George Washington attire to greet customers and help with luggage and opening doors for the guests. Lansill said she remembered this from visiting as a little girl. “Well, my son Timmy, whose favorite subject is history and proclaims his desire to follow as third generation in the family business of owning the Colonial Inn, revived this tradition,” Brown said. “We found the old coat and three-pointed hat in the attic, brushed off the dust and instigated bellhop service once again on busy nights.” (Courtesy photo) Puzzle brought to you by:

Celebrate with caution over the holidays

Thank You!!!

-CONTINUED from page 3.

Pictured above: An old postcard shows the 1948 Mack fire truck in use for a pump performance test on the dock in Harbor Springs. Cupps noted that “the Mack” actually has more pumping capacity than their trucks do today.

twice about bringing dogs to crowded events. “It seems like there has been an unfortunate uptick in drownings in northern Michigan this year,” Branson added. “Use common sense out there. This is a national holiday week, and there will be lots of traffic in the harbor. We like to see people using the water and having a good time, but please, be very safe, especially when it comes to things like ensuring children are wearing lifejackets.”

-CONTINUED from page 1.

hours of training, while back then, Cupps was simply trained at the fire hall. “We were fighting fires in tennis shoes and shorts back then,” Cupps said with a chuckle. “We did have some rubber boots and long black coats and antique helmets,” he added, “but we weren’t much for safety. Today, it’s a lot better. The guys don’t go without being fully suited up and with air tanks on.” “The Mack,” which is how Cupps fondly refers to the old fire truck, was actively in use for nearly 50 years, and fought its last fire in 1997. The truck, (which has no top), was used year-round to fight fires throughout the Harbor Springs area and even as far as Cross Village. “It’s unreal, we used to take the old Mack to fires in the

winter,” Cupps noted. “We used to cover Readmond Township, as well, since there was no department there at the time. The area we cover now is a lot smaller than it was. We used to cover a lot of ground. “ Cupps said he has enjoyed working with his sons over the years, who both serve on the department. John Cupps, Jr. has been part of the fire department for the past 22 years and serves as assistant fire chief, and his brother Matt, has also served as a firefighter for the past 10 years. “Getting to work with my kids is fantastic,” Cupps said with a smile. It hasn’t always been easy serving on the fire department, he noted. “There were some really bad ones,” Cupps said solemnly of

the fires he’s fought. “We lost three kids during the time that I’ve been here, and that’s been really tough. But you go out there and you’re able to save someone and that helps.” When asked if he will miss serving on the department, Cupps becomes a bit emotional and pauses a moment. “It’s going to be tough,” he finally said. “It takes a lot of time as a volunteer firefighter, but I still plan to help out with the department in the future.” Cupps said he has liked being part of the fire department over the years and noted that it has been important to him to give back to his community. “I think it’s important to help out,” he said. “I’ve met a lot of great guys while I’ve served and I’ve really enjoyed it.”

Junior sailors perform well in recent Laser Championship sailing regatta On June 22 and 23, Harbor Springs hosted the 2013 District 19 Laser Championship Regatta. The event was hosted by Irish Boat Shop and the Little Traverse Sailors. Top Laser sailors from across the state converged on Little Traverse Bay for two days of racing. “We had a good showing from local sailors along with a few junior sailors that deserve recognition,” said organizer Tom Trautman. “Recently, the Little Traverse Sailors have introduced Laser sailing to both the sailing school and

junior racing program. The boats are fun, fast and allow the juniors to compete locally in our Laser Summer Series. The Laser is a legendary one-design sailboat and the most popular Olympic sailing class. It is a challenging boat that rewards athleticism, subtle steering and trimming techniques as well as tactical excellence.” Out of 16 competitors, in the end it was local sailor Graham Miller (age 17) finishing in 8th place overall and taking home the trophy for top finishing Junior (18 and under).

DDA progress noted... -CONTINUED from page 1. took place in Harbor Springs last summer. Wade Trim consultants were on-hand for a week of brainstorming and discussion sessions, as well as physical, commercial, and residential inventories that resulted in a nearly 100-page plan of action for Harbor Springs. Likely the most visible work of the DDA in the near future will be hiring a downtown director to help guide the mission of the authority, and to help with downtown-related events/opportunities. “As soon as funding is secured for a director, the position will be advertised,” said Tom Richards, Harbor Springs city manager. “The DDA is moving forward on many fronts, to respond to


the ‘vision’ provided by our community and consultants.” While not all of the suggestions provided in the Wade Trim report were met with great fanfare, the DDA has latched on to several of the ideas, including a redesign of the waterfront. While City Council recently voted down a motion to accept a bid to remove the waterfront tennis courts-- which has been the center of much of the waterfront renovation discussions-- a design committee is continuing to move forward with possible renderings for what the city’s waterfront could look like in the future. The DDA also recently recommended City Council adopt a redevelopment dis-

Every Last Morsel: Editor’s Note: The Harbor Light Newspaper has been following the progress of 2004 Harbor Springs High School graduate Jordan Breighner’s innovative new technology business accelerator, Coolhouse Labs, since its early 2013 inception. Located on Main

By Kate Bassett

Street in downtown Harbor Springs, Coolhouse is officially up and running with five startup companies in town for the first summer cohort. We started featuring these companies last week. Presented here is Every Last Morsel.

dreaming of an “app” that could help him better organize his responsibilities. “I wanted something to keep track of where my gardens were, what was growing, what was ready to harvest. I realized on a larger scale, this idea could really empower people in their own communities to easily find and access fresh produce.” The idea utilizes already popular social media and marketplace sites like Etsy (an online market for crafters) and Facebook, flipping the concept into something totally new-- and potentially game changing for the local foods movement. “When I started changing the way I eat, I went online to research. And then, I went to Whole Foods and Traders Joes,” Zimmerman said. “I grew up with some knowledge of farmers’ markets, but still, the experience of trying to eat healthier, and buy locally grown foods, it can be really overwhelming. We want to aggregate all this information about local growers and harvests into an easily searchable site. We’d like to become a driving force in building networks within communities that use a digital platform to transpose into real world relationships.” Mock-ups for the website are easy to navigate, allowing users to do everything from search a certain product, like “tomatoes,” (all available tomatoes in their area display with harvest dates, availability, and the ability to purchase online) to farmer or user profiles that display information, photos, and even microblogs where folks can post recipes, updates, and stories. “You can get to know a farmer or gardener online, and then get to know them

When sitting with Todd Jones and Emma Zimmerman, it’s easy to forget what’s happening around them. Homemade wooden signs display a pitchfork and salad fork, swiss chard, beets. A poster, “Honey, if you need me, I’ll be in the garden,” leans on their desk. The Coolhouse Lab space carved out for Every Last Morsel feels more farm office than technology startup, but that’s exactly why Chicago-based Jones, 29, Zimmerman (marketing director, 22) and Al Johri (lead developer, 20) are working in downtown Harbor Springs this summer. As one of five companies in Coolhouse Lab’s first startup accelerator summer cohort, the trio is here to harness the power of the Internet with the power of local food. Their end goal is as simple and complex as their company’s name: Every Last Morsel. The website they are designing will connect communities with gardeners and small farms. Jones’s dream? To see Every Last Morsel of food grown be put to good use. “People can think of it like an online farmers’ market,” said the company’s founder. “What we’re trying to do is use technology to connect farmers (and gardeners) with customers. We want to democratize production, allow people with small backyard gardens to sell their excess produce, and to be able to shop for groceries within their neighborhood. That’s where the idea for Every Last Morsel originated, and it’s grown organically from there.” Jones started out as a backyard garden designer and manager. A self-proclaimed “tech geek,” he said he started

in person from there,” Zimmerman said. “A lot of small farmers, especially, need that extra value. It can be costly and difficult to get to enough markets or to set up meetings with local restaurants or organizations. Every Last Morsel allows growers to focus on what they do best, while reaching the most people possible.” Jones said the idea of creating community is never far from his team’s mind, which is why tools like microblogging are available to not only the farmers, but also, site users. “We want this to be more participatory for more people. Anyone can add value to the community.” On the production end, tools like the ability to track crops from season to season will help cut down legwork and logistical planning for farmers, Jones noted. “We are starting with small producers, even just backyard gardens, but our end goal is to help small businesses and farms in general be more financially sustainable,” he said. Every Last Morsel’s ideals felt like a perfect fit for Coolhouse Labs, whose motto is “small town, big ideas.” “In addition to this place being beautiful, our whole mission is focused on connecting with small communities, so we couldn’t be in a better spot,” Zimmerman said, adding with a smile, “We were pleasantly surprised to see all the food being grown downtown.” “The greatest benefit has been access to all the mentors,” Jones said. “We’ve been working with incredibly talented, experienced, successful people who have been helping us challenge our ideas and assumptions.”

JULY 6, 1 PM

Through the 1990s, the well loved and critically acclaimed comedy TV series Mad About You was a staple in households across the country. This Saturday, July 6, Mad About You fans will have the chance to see one of the stars of that show, Paul Reiser, in a performance at the John M Hall Auditorium in Bay View. Reiser was born and raised in New York City and became involved in stand-up comedy while studying music at Binghamton University. While performing in New York City comedy clubs, he stumbled upon what would be his future career. “While I was doing standup in New York, I accidently walked into the casting office for the movie Diner,” Reiser explained in a telephone

Paul Reiser

interview this week. “This opened a lot of doors and life really began to change for me.” Reiser ended up landing a major role in the film and from there, he began starring in other movies including Beverly Hills Cop (I and II),

Alien and several others. Reiser would become a household name in the 1990s with the advent of the popular comedy series Mad About You, (1992-1999) which he created with Danny Jacobson and starred in with Helen Hunt. “It was a great experience. I loved everything about it, and the show actually ran parallel to my own life in many ways,” Reiser said of the show. “With Mad About You, I created the kind of show that was relatable, one that I would enjoy watching myself.” The show boasted a number of well-known guest stars that would regularly make an appearance. Reiser noted he has felt lucky to work these actors and actresses, including Carol Burnett, Mel Brooks, Jerry Lewis, among others. -CONTINUED on page 3B.

traordinary – the awe – within what is commonly perceived as our ordinary world.” Frances noted she agrees with Marcel Proust’s observation: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” “When I photograph, I find myself ‘opening up’ to my environs. In a way it feels as if the veil of this world is lifted, and I am getting glimpses of the wonder that surrounds us all.” Izze Frances is the pseudonym used by Elizabeth Fergus-Jean for her photographic work.

Of his co-star, Helen Hunt, Reiser noted, “I met Helen through a friend of my wife and she was just a Godsend. I was in the middle of writing the show and thought she’d be really great for the part, and she was. She has great strength, is lovely, funny and emotional. The show was on the air for seven years, and we are both very proud of it.” Reiser is also an author and has published three books, Couplehood, Babyhood and Familyhood. In 2010, he joined singer Julia Fordham

for a musical collaboration and the duo produced a CD together. Currently, Reiser has his hands in numerous other projects, including writing and producing for TV shows and spending time with his family. He plans to continue acting and will start shooting for a new film in July. Reiser recently made the decision to get back involved in stand-up comedy. “A year ago I just got this urge to do stand-up again, and so I called the local comedy club and told them what I wanted to do. They told me I’d go on at 10 p.m. and I asked, ‘At night?!’ That seemed late to me, but I guess that’s how you know you’re getting older,” he said with a laugh. “Anyway, I started doing stand-up again and it felt great. I really hadn’t done much stand-up since college, so I had to get in the swing of it again-- kind of like spring training,” he continued. “It’s a lot of fun and lets me be creative. A lot of the people come to see me because they watched the show and enjoyed it, so when I’m up there, I feel like I’m talking to people who know me; like I’m with family.” Reiser will provide audience members with an evening of laughs during his stand-up show on Saturday, July 6 at 8 p.m. at the John M Hall Auditorium in Bay View. The auditorium is located at 1725 Encampment Avenue. Tickets prices are $25-45 and can be purchased online at or by calling 231225-8877 or 231-347-4210.

D’Art for Art June 11 Featured artist announced

Plein Air Artist Louise Pond

Beyond the Blue exhibit opening at Three Pines Louise Pond is a plein air pastel artist from Elk Rapids, who recently won “First in Show,” from a pastel group called, The Light Chasers, in Sarasota Florida. Her work was also recently chosen for the Dennos Museum Show, The Art of Sleeping Bear. In her exhibit, Beyond the Blue, Pond states, “ Outside my window and beyond the blue of Lake Michigan, lies my passion as an artist. With a strong need to express myself creatively, I have landed on the process of painting from life with the vibrant medium of soft pastels. I have come to this process later than most, and have no time to waste. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time.” My quest is to be fully engaged, putting in the hard work to hone my skills as a plein air artist. I strive to capture the truth of what I see, a moment in time-- a shadow cast on a barn or the calm reflection of the sky resting upon a lake. My hard work is paying off and it is tomorrow’s work I am most excited about. I am blessed in having this work, God’s love and the support my wonderful family and friends.” The opening reception takes place on July 6 from 2 until 7 p.m.


Since its founding in 1971, Crooked Tree Arts Center’s mission has been to create, stimulate and perpetuate the arts in northern Michigan. One of the many ways the arts center fulfills that mission is through its premier fundraising event D’Art for Art. What makes D’Art for Art unique is that guests select a beautiful piece of art to add to their own collection the night of the event. All the artwork is created by artists of local, regional and national acclaim. Each year Crooked Tree Arts Center (CTAC) chooses an artist to feature, whose work inspires the theme for D’Art for Art. This year’s D’Art featured artist is owner of Otis Pottery, June Otis. Her stoneware, “noshi” is the highlighted artwork. noshi, stoneware kimono wall June and David Otis moved to sculpture by June Otis. the United States from Germany 25 years ago after receiving a notice of a pottery studio for sale in northern Michigan.

Editor’s Note: Writer Maureen Abood, a life-long seasonal resident who recently decided to call Harbor Springs home, is the author and photographer behind the blog Rose Water and Orange Blossoms. Her culinary musings are often tied to the fields and tables of this area, and we are excited to feature a regular series of her essays in the Harbor Light. Through Maureen’s words and photos, we will find common connection of food, family, community. Read her blog online at

It’s for them, and for all that is finite, that we tear up each time we hear the familiar drumbeat that signals the start of the parade. Life changes, the generations pass into history. The only thing we can do about that is respond with a big measure of grace.


he 4th of July picnic menu here on Main Street is always a great topic of discussion in my family, one that entertains us not just in the days leading up to the 4th, but throughout the year. We kick around whether we need a tent, how many hot dogs to buy, which soda is preferred (Diet Coke is second only to bottles of water), what kind of cookies to make (bar cookies are much smarter than drop cookies for a crowd, I always say). Should we make the baked beans again? One year my dad sent out actual paper invitations, and it’s been fodder for our 4th-talk ever since. Funny thing about this extended, savored discussion is that in the end, the menu rarely changes; except for once or twice here and there, the parade party has been the same for the last 40-odd years. When we’ve gone all out for a catered picnic, it’s sure been easier, but it’s just not the same as our homey spread.

And this day, the 4th of July in Harbor Springs, is all about that homey tradition. Those of us coming here from somewhere else, we crave the nostalgic Harbor 4th. Those of us who live here, we also crave that big-day-in-a-small-town moment, even though this place is ours all year long. What I’d give to swoop around town and hover over the multitude of picnics that will happen on the 4th, and see what’s what on people’s tables. We know it’s a hot dog day, but other interesting things pop up. Our table is always graced with Carolyn Grin’s super-delicious picnic salad, one she says is her goto for alfresco eating because there’s no mayo to worry over in the hot sun. I love it not just because it tastes so good, and

This picnic salad is as healthy as it is delicious. Perfect all summer long.

We’re thrilled to see peppers and other vegetables finally come into season up north. (Photos courtesy Maureen Abood)

not just because it is such an ultra-healthy salad on a day when not much else I put in my mouth could be called that (I justify it all, as many of us do, by running the Paul Revere first thing. Not the 10-mile like my brother Tom, but 3 miles do the trick). I love the salad because I can count on its presence, right there with Carolyn’s family who come rain or shine. When I asked Carolyn to share her salad recipe, she said yes with delight, but she hoped that didn’t mean we’d be making it ourselves this year for the 4th. She wants to make the salad and bring it over as she always does. She wants to keep her tradition. For years we enjoyed the presence of Carolyn’s parents

Carolyn Grin’s Picnic Salad This salad can easily be doubled; here I’ve given half the amount Carolyn typically makes. The ingredients are fairly flexible too—add some goat or feta cheese, some chopped herbs like basil and parsley, or throw in some carrots or whatever veggies look great at the farmer’s market. Serves 15-20. ½ lb. pearled barley (1 ¼ cup uncooked) 1 red, orange, or yellow bell pepper 1 cup finely chopped Vidalia onion 2 cups or 1 can rinsed cooked chickpeas 2 cups or 1 can rinsed cooked black beans 1-2 tablespoons minced garlic ½ cup oil-packed sun dried tomatoes, chopped 1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon pepper ¼ cup pesto (purchased or homemade) ½ cup purchased Italian dressing, or homemade vinaigrette Cook the barley in a small saucepan. Cover with water, bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes. Rinse in a colander. Coarsely chop the pepper into 1-inch pieces. Line a sheet pan with foil and scatter the peppers, skin side up, on the prepared pan. Place under the broiler until the peppers are roasted, charred in places, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir well to combine. Refrigerate for at least one hour and up to one day to allow flavors to meld.

A Vocabulary of Place

By Wil Cwikiel

Words of Appreciation for the Little Traverse Bay Region

Odawa Words Below you will find a list of 20 words in the Odawa language to give you a sense of the vocabulary used to describe this place prior to European settlement. The phonetic pronunciations provided are from Odawa Language and Legends: Andrew J.Blackbird and Raymond Kiogima, edited by Constance Cappel, Ph.d.

The Waganakising shoreline, south of Good Hart, looks much today like it did hundreds of years ago. (Photo by Wil Cwikiel)

Those Who Came Before By WIL CWIKIEL


ver the past year, each month this column has focused on one aspect of our rich natural resources (dunes, forests, lakes, etc.) with the intent of sharing information and helping readers develop a vocabulary so that as a community we may better understand and appreciate this place. In keeping true to the original conception of this column as a one-year series, this is the last installment. As I was considering how to end this series, I thought it might be insightful to consider the vocabulary of this place from the perspective of the first language that was used to describe this area—words in the language of the peoples who have known this place since before the Europeans knew it was here: Odawa. Since the only word I know in any Native American tongue is megwich (thank you), I sat down with Eric Hemenway, Director of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Department of Repatriation, Records, and Archives to learn about the words used to describe this place by those who have been living here for centuries. Eric is a walking encyclopedia regarding the history of the Little Traverse Bay Bands Eric Hemenway, Director of LTBB of of Odawa Indians. To start, Odawa Indians Department of RepaEric explained that the Odawa triation, Records, and Archives. people, and their close kin, the Ojibwa and the Potawatomi, migrated to the Great Lakes from the Northern Atlantic Coast long before European contact. These three nations formed an alliance known as the Council of Three Fires and called themselves Anishnabek. The Odawa language is referred to by some as a dialect of Anishinaabemowin (known by westerners as Algonquin). Another way to think of this is to consider Anishinaabemowin as the mother language of Odawa, just as you’d think of Latin as the mother language of French or Italian.

Skilled navigators and mariners The Odawa people settled Manitoulin Island in northern Lake Huron. Being skilled navigators and mariners, the Odawa had established trade networks throughout the Great Lakes (from Manitoba to Montreal) before they encountered Samuel de Champlain in 1615. The French found a great partner in the Odawa and together built a working relationship in the fur trade. Because of their positive relationship with the French, the Iroquois of New York threatened to destroy the Odawa settlements on Manitoulin. To avoid war, the Odawa moved their settlements to the west—ranging from the Straits of Mackinaw and the shoreline of what is now Emmet County to Chequamegon (near what is now Bayfield, Wisconsin)—all the while maintaining their role as Great Lakes traders. The Odawa found the area that is now called Emmet County a wonderful place to call home. Eric explained that prior to the arrival of Champlain; the Odawa expelled another tribe that had taken up residence here—the Mush-co-desh. The story goes that the Mush-co-desh, who had been cooperative trading partners for many years, waged insults upon a war party returning from a battle in Wisconsin. Chief Saw-ge-maw returned this insult with a battle party fortified with warriors from Manitoulin Island and expelled the Mush-co-desh from Emmet and Charlevoix counties. As Eric continued sharing the history of his people, I was struck by the tumultuousness of this region over the past four hundred years: the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, negotiating treaties,

and responding when they were broken. Through it all, the leaders of the Odawa had to guide their people through the rocky waters of shifting geopolitical forces (French, British, and Americans) and forced cultural changes while maintaining a foothold on the place they called home. Speaking of home, the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa inhabited the shoreline of what is now Emmet County from Cross Village to Harbor Springs. This collection of small villages was referred to as Waganakising, referring to an ancient pine tree bent out toward Lake Michigan that marked a safe landing for their large trading canoes known as jiimaan. The French dubbed this place “L’Arbor Croche,” or Crooked Tree. Cross Village was known as Ahnaumawitokomeg, or Place of the Prayer Tree. Harbor Springs was known as Weekwitonsing, or Little Bay Place. Working your way around the bay, you’d come to Mukwazibing (Bear River—now Petoskey) then to Agaming (Across the waterway—now Bay Shore) and then to Zhingwakzibing (Pine River—now Charlevoix).

Thriving in Waganakising For hundreds of years, the Odawa thrived in Waganakising. The rich waters of Lake Michigan provided an ample supply of whitefish, lake trout, and sturgeon. Garden plots provided corn, beans, and squash. The forests provided game, berries, and other edibles. For the most part, the small villages that made up Waganakising were inhabited mainly in the spring, summer, and fall. Many families moved south in the winter to spend time with family and friends in southern Michigan. With the riches from their trading success and their delicacies of dried fish, maple sugar, and berries, I’m sure they were welcome winter visitors! As our discussion turned back to the first language that was used to describe this place, the music of the words rang in my ears. Gitchi-gami was the word used to describe all the Great Lakes…not just Lake Superior as made famous by Gordon Lightfoot. This underscores the hydrologic fact that these waters are one great ecosystem. The Odawa and their large birch-bark jiimaan spent a lot of time island hopping, and so of course each island in the Beaver Island archipelago would have a unique name: Amikgokenda (Beaver Island), Ketiganiminis (Garden Island), Nisiwabigong (High Island). Some of the place names, or the names of places, remain. For example, the Odawa term for a village is ooden, and we have the Village of Oden. The term cheboigan describes a waterway between two lakes, and we have the County and City of Cheboygan. And, adjacent to Harbor Springs is a resort community named after the original name for Harbor Springs: Wequetonsing. Wawatam Township, located just west of Mackinaw City, bears the name of an Ojibwa Chief who saved the life of British fur trader Alexander Henry when Fort Michilimackinac was captured during the Pontiac War. The town of Petoskey was named in honor of Odawa leader Ignatius Petoskey. My absolute favorite place in the county, Waugoshance Point, takes its name from the Odawa word for fox. When the area we know as Emmet County was originally organized in 1840, it was named Tonedagana after an Odawa Chief from the Cross Village area. Three years later, the county’s name was change to honor Robert Emmet, the Irish nationalist and leader of a failed rebellion against British rule of Ireland. Unfortunately, he was captured, tried, and executed for treason before he ever had a chance to set foot in North America, let alone enjoy the spectacular beauty of this place (not to mention have his family live generations here like Tonedagana). Though I don’t want to take anything from the hibernophiles nor discount the contribution of Irish settlers and residents (I’m one of them), I can’t help but feel that we lost an important connection to the history of this place when Tonedagana County became Emmet County. Listening to Eric, I was stuck by an incredible sense of time and connection to place. For hundreds of years, his family has lived, loved, and died along the Lake Michigan shoreline. As a student of the ecology of this place and someone who has lived here permanently for only 23 years (but spend the previous 25 visiting this place), Eric opened my eyes to a whole different way of knowing the waters, woods, and shorelines that I love. The story of the Odawa people is one of skilled traders, epic

Unfortunately, the story of the Odawa is not well known. As I was leaving Eric’s office, I asked him how I could learn more. He mentioned how his department is engaged with the National Park Service, Emmet County, and the States of Michigan and Indiana on projects to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, conflicts in which the Odawa played a significant role. The Civil War exhibit is currently on display at the Michigan Historical Center in Lansing and the War of 1812 exhibit, titled “Turning Point: The War of 1812 from the Native American Perspective” will be displayed at the Harbor Springs Historical Museum until October. These exhibits, along with a trip to the Andrew J. Blackbird Museum in downtown Harbor Springs, are definitely worth a visit. In addition, Eric recommend three books: Odawa Language and Legends: Andrew J. Blackbird and Raymond Kiogima, edited by Constance Cappel, History of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan, by Andrew J. Blackbird, and The Way it Happened (Gah-Baeh-Jhagwah-Buk): A Visual Culture History of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa, by James M. McClurken. I encourage you to put your hands on a copy of these books and read them while you are enjoying the beautiful beaches along Waganakising this summer. They just might help you better understand and appreciate this place that we all love.

Integrity, Quality, Service.

The Hohlbein family, Matt, Mary and daughters (r-l) Nell, 6, and Nancy, 8, stand inside Matt’s workshop where he creates hand crafted wooden frame kayaks and sustainably produced coffins. The family lives on 10 acres in the small village of Bliss.

Simple, sustainable, creative: A Northern Michigan family’s lifestyle -CONTINUED from page 1A.

Matt’s newest creation, what he calls the “Michigan coffin,” takes his desire for a sustainable product one step further and forgoes all nails and glue to put it together. Instead, he uses wooden pegs and sliding dovetails to build the casket. “This type of coffin makes the most sense from an ecological standpoint, which has as little impact as possible since we’re able to do away with the nails and glue,” Matt said. Since the coffins are ecologically friendly, building them has become a family affair. His daughters Nancy, 8, and Nell, 6, help in various aspects of the building process. Matt noted the amount of steel, concrete and formaldehyde put in the earth every year via caskets is something he hopes to avoid by producing the coffins without these materials. “It’s a little insane, and it’s something that doesn’t seem very sustainable over the long term,” he said of the combined levels of such substances. “We realized that with this business, we have the power to make good choices for the environment,” Mary added. “There’s a way to strike a balance, and we’re trying to do that by producing an ecological product and one that’s affordable to people. That’s also very important to us.” Costs for the coffins range from $950 to $1,650, drastically lower than most conventionally produced coffins. Matt got started in woodworking during high school, and worked in various cottage industry manufacturing jobs over the years. He ended up taking some boatbuilding classes and now, in addition to the coffins, is starting to build custom made wooden frame kayaks, as well. The ultra-light kayaks are made from wood and ballistic nylon (the same material bulletproof vests are made from)

Matt Hohlbein builds sustainably produced and affordable coffins made of local materials. His newest project, called the “Michigan coffin,” forgoes all nails and glue, and instead, uses wooden pegs and sliding dovetails to piece it together.

and weigh approximately 30 pounds for an adult sized boat. Matt is keen to share his knowledge with others and recently hosted a kayak building workshop on his property. There was no cost for the workshop and participants only paid for the cost of materials. As if kayaks and coffins aren’t enough, Matt has also recently started making shoes. So far, he has made pairs for himself, two daughters and is in the process of making them for other family members and friends. “He’s an inventor kind of guy,” Mary said with a smile. “I

don’t think he’s happy doing just one thing.” With regard to the family’s lifestyle, their business fits in fairly well, they said. “It’s nice to be at home and have a flexible schedule and do something where the whole family can be involved,” Matt said. “It’s also great to have the freedom to make all my own choices when it comes to design and materials.” When it comes to buying from their neighbors and supporting a local economy, the Hohlbeins are the epitome of community builders. Matt said he doesn’t have much desire to market their product nationally, or really outside of the region. “If towns had carpenters doing something like this within their own communities, people would have more options when it comes to products like this,” Matt said. “I feel very strongly about local economy. It makes sense on so many levels to shop local. There’s a vested interest when you’re selling something to your neighbor instead of on a global scale, and you’re more likely to produce a better product.” This mindset defines their family values and guides their daily life. “Live so that you need less, and what you do need, buy consciously,” Mary said. “In our lives, that translates into fixing things versus buying, cooking and baking from scratch, and most importantly, having fun doing things like riding our bikes 17-miles round trip to a friends’ house and camping in their backyard!” For more information about the Hohlbein’s business or any upcoming kayak workshops, go to, email or call 231-537-2196.

and David began teaching pottery classes there. “It is so important, as a local artist, to become involved with the community,” June said. “You really need to have a good support system.” In continuing their involvement with CTAC, June and David were the recipients of the eddi award in 2007; an award which honors local individuals and organizations who work to keep the arts alive in northern Michigan. June’s inspiration for “noshi” came from growing up around Kimono fabric; both of her parents came from Japan. Traditionally, Kimonos are displayed from the back so that the majority of the clothing can be shown. “Kimonos are very free and have lots of diversity,” explained June. “They are amazingly beautiful

Every 11 years the Sun goes through a cycle that includes an increase in the activity of sunspots, and the year 2013 is a solar maximum year. “So far it’s been a pretty low maximum, but things are about to get exciting, and Shawn will tell us why,” Adams said. “It is worth noting that Shawn is fresh from the wild success of her recent time-lapse video of the Northern Lights over Northern Michigan, called ‘North Country Dreamland’ which includes footage from March

The evening’s program will include an indoor presentation of Stockman-Malone’s photography, followed by outdoor, naked-eye and telescopic night sky viewing. Meet at the Beach House first. The program is free and open to the public and no reservations are needed. Even though it’s summer, it’s advised that guests dress warmly as it’s typically cooler along the Lake Michigan shoreline than inland. And if you bring a flashlight, please be sure it has a red filter, as the white light of flashlights and smart phones disrupts the night vision.

The Heat Finally, a comedy that actually made me laugh and didn’t show all the best gags in the previews. It started a little slow and I was beginning to be disappointed, but when it hits its stride, there is no turning back No real new ground is broken, except that it is a female “buddy” movie, but as always, there is one straight-laced, by-the-rules cop and one who makes up her own rules and flies by the seat of her pants. The personalities of the stars (Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy) are strong enough to revitalize this tired story line. Ashburn (Bullock) is a good FBI agent; she gets the job done, she closes cases but no one can stand her. Mullins (McCarthy) has a good arrest record, but she loses cases by breaking the rules and, coincidentally, no one can stand her (actually, they’re a little afraid of her.) Ashburn is sent to Boston to interview a drug dealer who has just been arrested by Mullins. They start off rocky and go downhill from there, but they are ordered to work together and that is where the fun begins. If you are a fan of Sandra Bullock and you are used to seeing her as America’s sweetheart, be prepared to see a different side of her. This is more a Melissa McCarthy type movie, raunchy and profane, but given a little time, Bullock keeps right up with her on these points. The saving grace of this movie is not just some funny lines but the ability of these actresses to add a little humanity to their clichéd characters. McCarthy especially has the uncanny ability to take the most unlikable role and give it an unexpected touch of sweetness and pathos. We learn early on that Mullins sent her own brother (Michael Rapaport) to prison for drugs, but we also learn that she was, in her own way, trying to save him. Her family doesn’t credit her good intentions and they definitely are not of a forgiving nature. Bullock and McCarthy are both excellent in their roles and they have some fine support, notably Rapaport, Marlon Wayans and the always funny Jane Curtin as Mullins’ mother. As I said, this is not a typical Sandra Bullock comedy. There is a lot of profanity, some violence played mainly for laughs and plenty of sexual conversation and jokes. Rated R, not for the young ones.
