Time to bring out your ideas for downtown

Triathlon set for Sunday By GRAHAM GETTEL


Harbor Light Newspaper

Local sponsorship, organization, and promotion are all characteristics of the Little Traverse Triathlon, making the July 15 event a rare gem with lots of “local flare”. The fourth annual Triathlon is scheduled to begin at 9:00 am Sunday and typically hosts 150 to 180 participants. The race has three components: a 600 meter swim just off Zoll Street Beach, 19.6 mile bicycle ride on M-119 parallel to the Lake Michigan shoreline, and a four -CONTINUED on page 12.

The Harbor Springs Downtown Development Authority has put out the plea: if you make one meeting about the future of downtown Harbor Springs, let it be during the the Wade Trim/living Lab visioning work sessions taking place July 11-14. Wade Trim/living Lab is the planning group that was selected by the DDA to develop a Downtown Enhancement Plan to guide any changes or economic strategies in Central Business District. This “community information blitz”-- starting Wednesday, July 11 and culminating with a visioning celebration at the Performing Arts Center on Saturday, July 14-- is more than just a creative collaboration. The information gathered during this time will be used to design the DDA’s plan, and may, in large part, help determine the very nature of downtown Harbor Springs in the coming years. -CONTINUED on page 18.

Booming business reported over Fourth of July holiday By DANIELLE MCINTOSH and KATE BASSETT Harbor Light Newspaper

The weather was close to perfect, downtowns were packed, and cheers for the fireworks lasted well after the last light exploded over Little Traverse Bay. It was, in many ways, a quintessential holiday weekend in the Harbor Springs area. While the crowds have slightly dissipated, the afterglow of Fourth of July is still going strong for area business owners. “I have to say, ‘wow!’ What a fantastic week,” said Keith McGlaughlin, owner of Toski Sands Market and Deli. “It started on Thursday and carried through to Sunday, with record breaking sales. It was just non-stop with people having fun. This is what I would call a ‘chamber

While Hanni Gallery has become known for its evening hours, Yothers said the Fourth of July week was worth keeping his lights on well past 9 p.m. “Some nights we stayed open as late as 10 or 11. We had an awesome week. We saw lots of people and were -CONTINUED on page 3.

Letters to the Editor Job well done... To the Editor: I must compliment the city on a job very well done. I was amazed on the fifth of July how beautiful and clean the city looked after an extremely full and busy Fourth. Thank you for your hard work, Carol Menzi

In support of libraries To the Editor: I read the article entitled, “City to connect with Alanson District Library,” published in the Harbor Light Newspaper of June 13, 2012, and written by Danielle McIntosh, with special interest. I currently serve as president of the Petoskey

District Library (PDL) Board and am particularly sensitive to local library issues. Like my colleagues on the PDL Board, I am in favor of and supportive of good libraries wherever we can find them and wherever people are considering establishing them. I met with Bob Sanford, the Chair of the Harbor Springs Area District Library (HSADL) Board specifically to voice our Board’s support of the HSADL concept. The HSADL Board’s plan is to build and operate a new library for the citizens of Harbor Springs and its neighboring townships. I met, informally over coffee, with Mr. Sanford to offer whatever support would be appropriate for our organization to offer the HSADL. The HSADL Board concluded that it was more appropriate and far less costly for West Traverse Township,

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

I’d guess that many of you have looked at old snapshots taken of you by doting relatives and tried to recall what it was like to be that person in the picture who seems to be you yet is such a stranger today. Here Linda Parsons Marion, who lives in Knoxville, Tennessee, touches upon the great distance between then and now.

Snapshot My mother sends the baby pictures she promised— egg hunting in Shelby Park, wooden blocks and Thumbelina tossed on the rug, knotty pine walls in a house lost to memory. I separate out the early ones, studying my navel or crumbs on the tray, taken before my awareness of Sylvania Superflash. Here I am sitting on the dinette table, the near birthday cake striking me dumb. Two places of wedding china, two glasses of milk, posed for the marvelous moment: the child squishes the fluted rosettes, mother claps her hands, father snaps the picture in the face of time. When the sticky sweet is washed off the page, we are pasted in an album of blessed amnesia. The father leaves the pine house and sees the child on weekends, the mother stores the china on the top shelf until it’s dull and crazed, the saucer-eyed girl grips her curved spoon like there’s no tomorrow. American Life in Poetry is made possible by The Poetry Foundation (www., publisher of Poetry magazine. It is also supported by the Department of English at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

the City of Harbor Springs, as well as for the other townships functioning under HSADL direction, to contract with the Alanson Library at $3.00 per person per year rather than to contract with the PDL during the time between now and the day the new HSADL will be built and opened for the public service. We of course respect the HSADL Board’s decision, though we are disappointed in the reasoning behind it. The HSADL Board has reasoned that it will take approximately $2.5 million to build their own new library facility and then concluded they must levy three-tenths of a mill to operate it during its development into a full service district library. Those numbers may be optimistically low, but certainly supportable and far more costly than is reflected by the $3.00 per card holder fee they are willing to offer the Alanson Public Library. The Petoskey District Library renovated and added on to the 1940 Bell Building in 2004, at a cost to the citizens of Petoskey of approximately $4.5 million. Currently, The PDL serves 6,933 card holders. That number is down 930 from last month’s count due to decisions made by several township and city officials north of Petoskey to connect with the Alanson Public Library rather than with the PDL for library services, beginning July 1, 2012. PDL card holders, support 14,568 users, and have over 80,000 items available them. The PDL actually circulated over 123,000 items in 2011, drawn from its own collection, as the result of collaborations with other libraries across the State of Michigan, and through its unique high-tech, computer generated services. The PDL will continue current services to residents of Bear Creek Township and Resort Township, provided the residents of those two townships agree, on August 7, to a four-tenths of a mill levy for operational support, only. Given our experience at the PDL, we believe that the HSADL ‘s appeal to the residents of its potential service area is a reasonable appeal and deserves support. We wish those who are leading the HSADL effort well. Dale Hull,

To the Editor:

Wow! What a Fourth of July! Each year, our little town is an amazing host to so many people! The Paul Revere Run was another success. I think it broke records for participants. The parade was fantastic. Despite all of the candy handed out by the Bango brothers (THANK YOU from all the kids), we didn’t make the fireworks, but understand they were amazing! As I drove through town the next morning, I was shocked by the lack of evidence of such an incredible party. Everything was already cleaned up, and downtown was back to looking like a typical summer morning. Thank you to all who make this town such a fantastic place. Days like the Fourth of July serve as great reminders-so many people go beyond the call of duty to make Harbor Springs a truly special place. Thank you! Jeanne Benjamin

Have you tried to use your Petoskey library card since July 1? If so, you’ve discovered that you must now pay $95 a year to continue using that public library. Your alternative is to go to the Alanson public library, which now has a contract with the City of Harbor Springs and several townships to provide library service for residents. Cross Village Township has made a similar arrangement with the Mackinaw City library. Because there is no public library in our area, the City of Harbor Springs and five townships (Cross Village, Little Traverse, Pleasantview, Readmond and West Traverse) are paying these libraries a perresident fee under contract to provide library service. According to state rules, penal fines (traffic fines) go to a public library within the county. So fines generated in our district are now going to Alanson and Mackinaw City. Adding the contract fees and the penal fines, $50,000 in local money is being sent out of our area this year because we have no public library here. How could we keep from

driving to Alanson for library services AND keep those penal fines here to benefit our own population? By having our own district library. That way, we would get the convenience of a full-service local library large enough to serve our district’s 7,000 fulltime residents plus seasonal visitors. And we would be able to utilize allocated funds that will otherwise be sent out of our library district. Diane MacKenzie Harbor Springs Note: A breakdown of the $50,000 figure, as provided by Friends of the Harbor Springs Area District Library, is as follows: $21,000 is going from the six participating municipalities to public libraries for contract fees --$3 per capita to Alanson and $4 per capita from Cross Village to Mackinaw City -- and penal fines vary. $39,441 was paid in 2011 but is being estimated at $30,000 to be conservative. This financial breakdown was provided by Friends of the Harbor Springs Area District Library board chair Judy Harvey from information she said was available from each municipality.

far this summer. “People are buying more expensive items and shopping around a bit more. We had a good June, and that has turned into a great July.” Jeanne Regentin, owner of Between the Covers Book Cellar in Harbor Springs, agreed. “I feel like I should lie down and fan myself,” she joked. “Business was the way it was before 2008. We were extremely busy, and I had the sense that people who come here each summer are making an effort to buy locally. It was like a shot in the arm after four years of marginal sales.” Across the bay, Petoskey merchants had similar reports. “It was a fabulous weekend,” said Jennifer Shorter, owner of Grandpa Shorters in downtown Petoskey. “We saw lots of new and existing fans. People seemed to come into town with the rain on Tuesday and were in good spirits whatever the weather. They were happy to be out and busy. We saw lots of big family groups too.” “We’ve had business own-

Spice Harbor owner Sarah Moglovkin said, “This year was definitely different than last with the Fourth in the middle of the week.

The fireworks were the best I have ever seen.

We rocked the 5th, 6th and 7th,” she said. “Our new kitchen renovation on the deck allowed us to serve quicker and a more varied menu which helped with the holiday crowds.” Josh Baker, owner of the Outfitter, said the week can be summed up in one word: great. “We saw lots of familiar faces, and met new people too. The harbor was busier than I can ever remember. The weather was incredible. The fireworks were unbelievable. The city crew did an amazing job-- everything ran smooth and people were having a blast.”

Harbor Springs...Now and Then By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 Hollywood lost two luminaries over the last week. Ernest Borgnine brought us years of laughs as McHale and won an award for his work in Marty, but I think the passing of Andy Griffith probably touched many more of us on a more personal level. I saw a sign last week saying that what we need today is more Mayberry and less Jersey Shore. I couldn’t agree more. Many of us feel that we more or less grew up in Mayberry, in a town where everyone knew everyone else’s business and that was okay because, for the most part, we had nothing to

hide. And besides, sometimes it is comforting to know that someone is watching out for you. When I lived in town in Harbor, I had two wonderful ladies across the street from me and nothing got by them. Sometimes I would barely be in the door before my phone started ringing with Mrs. Truman calling to tell me UPS had left me a package. Once my phone rang in the middle of the night, it was Edna Swiss calling to tell me someone had just stolen my bicycle. Okay, maybe a call before they drove off would have been more helpful, but the thought counted for a lot. I loved the fact that these ladies had my back. We had most of the characters. We didn’t have Floyd, but we had Earl (Heminger), Al (Spencely) and Stan (Huffman). We didn’t have Goober and Gomer, but we had John (Cameron), Frank (Keller), Charlie (Backus) and John (Standish), Garth (Vorce) and Mr. Phillips (I could never have called him by his first name.) We didn’t have Ellie at our drug store, we had Wes (Hovey). We had Mert at her restaurant instead of Juanita at the diner, and speaking just for myself, I think we had several Miss Crumps in Ann Koontz, Kitty Marquardt, Noreen Kolinski and Nancy

Obituaries Alfred Fisher, Jr. Alfred J. “AJ” Fisher Jr., a longtime winter resident of Palm Beach, FL. and pioneer in the auto safety industry, died Tuesday, June 19, 2012, in Grosse Pointe, MI. he was 91. He was born and raised in Detroit, the son of one of the two founders of the Fisher Body Co. He attended the University of Detroit and the Cornell School of Engineering. During World War II, he served his country as an officer in the U.S. Navy. After the war, he returned to Detroit and in 1947 founded the Alrowa Metal Co. with his two brothers, Robert and Walter. Alrowa manufactured metal parts, including transmission components, ash trays, outside trim parts, brake bands and metal fasteners. During the Korean War, Alrowa made parts of rocket launchers. The company eventually became Fisher Industries. In 1964, with his brother Walter, Mr. Fisher founded General Safety Corp., a manufacturer of automotive safety belt systems. Little more than a decade later, another family company, Fisher Dynamics, was established with the development of the seat-back latch. Mr. Fisher eventually bought his brothers’ interests in all the companies, and sold General Safety to Allied Signal Corp. in 1995. The successor companies, Fisher Dynamics Corp. and Fisher and Co., continue to supply the global automotive industry. With his wife of 69 years, the former BettyJane Jacobs, Mr. Fisher divided his time between his homes in Palm Beach, Grosse Pointe and Harbor Springs, and aboard his boat, Kingfisher. In Michigan, he was a member or former member of the Bayview Yacht Club, the Country Club of Detroit, the Detroit Athletic Club, the Grosse Pointe Club and the Harbor Point Golf Club. In addition to his wife, Mr. Fisher is survived by his daughters Judy Knudsen and Christine “Tina” Grow; sons Alfred III and Michael Fisher; his brother Walter Fisher; his sister Trude Costello; sons-in-law Peter Knudsen and Richard Grow; daughters-in-law Barbara and Beth; and 11 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

your own minds, I’m sure you have your own nominations for those role. Our town was full of Aunt Bees, my mother and most mothers would have fit, but for some reason I keep drawing up Dorothy Heminger in my mind when I try to name one. They were physically similar but I have no idea whether or not Mrs. Heminger could cook. My favorite Mayberry character was Ernest T. Bass and I can’t say we had anyone close to him; more’s the pity, he was very entertaining. For some reason I keep thinking of Elmer Daniels, did he look like Ernest? He certainly didn’t act like him. And we were all Opie. None of us were perfect, but we were raised to know right from wrong. The best part of the Andy Griffith Show was the fact that there was always a moral dilemma and no one made bad choices that couldn’t be fixed. The worst thing Opie ever did was shoot a bird with his bb gun and has a child ever felt worse about a transgression? I think not. The show offered a scenario where it did take a village to raise a child and that was the way we grew up. I daresay my husband probably took as many swats at the hands of Judy Meyer as he did at home and I know Helen Marihugh or Rosie Warner or Esther Kuhns or Luanne Murchie never hesitated to discipline me when I was at their homes, any more than my mom would have with their children. I’m not advocating child abuse or any thing of the sort, but our parents didn’t have to worry that the other parents would come

back on them; it was never a case of “my child wouldn’t do that.” To the contrary, if any of our parents found out that we needed to be disciplined, we’d probably get it twice as bad when we got home. I wish I could whistle, I think that is an almost obligatory way to end a conversation about Mayberry, but I’m sure that song in playing in your head already. Very sincere condolences to Kathryn Vieau Coe, whose husband Scott passed away over the weekend. All of our thoughts go out to Kathy and to their children at this time. Congratulations to Jeremy and Liz Clare Mullens who welcomed Tristan Robert Mullens to their family on June 28. Can only imagine how excited big sister Evie at her brother’s birth. Congratulations to Grandma JoAnn Clare, too. I missed a couple of birthdays over the holidays, hope that Sophie Carpenter (7/1) and Jackson Wells (7/11) both had absolutely wonderful birthdays. This week, let’s begin by wishing Happy Birthdays to Garett Paige and Paige Ranney on the 14th and to Lana Hamlin Tompkins on July 15. On Monday the 16th, we send birthday wishes to Chris Johnson, Mike Simkins, and Catherynn Spierling and on Tuesday to Jon Werden, Carolyn Kalbfleisch and Kristie Blanck Dickinson. Finally, on July 18, Happy Birthday to Marc Sprague and Jolene Kosequat Ester. Share your news with Cynthia, 231.56.7842

Good Lovelies to perform at Bay View Friday, July 13

Petoskey Farmers Market report...

Funny and upbeat, with just a pinch of sass, the Good Lovelies‘ textbook three-part harmonies, constant instrument swapping, and witty on-stage banter have enlivened the folk music landscape since they joined forces in 2006 for their first show at Toronto’s funky Gladstone Hotel. Now they will come to Bay View after

The Petoskey Farmers Market is in full swing with more and more local produce and products arriving each week. On Friday, July 13, the market will host a tasting day from 10:00 a.m. until noon. Samples of products from 25 farms will be available for a free tasting. Recipes and meal suggestions will also be available at each

a successful performance at last year’s BlissFest, bringing their charming, feel-good show back to the area for an encore performance on Friday, July 13 at 8 p.m. The performance will be held on the lawn in front of John M. Hall Auditorium (inside if rain threatens), so lawn chairs, blankets, etc. are all welcome.

Tickets for The Good Lovelies are $20 for adults (children under 18 are free) and can be purchased at the Bay View Box Office, by phone at 1-800-595-4849, or at www. For more information call Chris Ludwa at 231-347-4210 or email com.

Week of July 11-17, 2012 farmer’s booth. The market runs each Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. through September 28. The location of the market is Howard Street, between Mitchell and Michigan Streets. Any recipe ingredients not available for purchase at the Farmers Market can be found at The Grain Train Natural Foods Market. Local musicians create a fun ambience

providing entertainment each Friday morning. A committee of local growers works with the Chamber to support the growth and success of the market. This success benefits the growers, and also gives the residents and guests of Downtown Petoskey a chance to buy quality farm, fished, and foraged products.

For Carbeck, the reasons she began getting involved in community service were similar to many other students, but the outcome was different. “I joined the National Honor Society because that’s what involved honor students did, but little did I know that I would fall in love with giving back,” Carbeck professed. Carbeck said she found that she loved supporting communities, and areas of greatest need, by working with people of all ages. This love started in her first volunteer trip to South Africa during spring break of her sophomore year. The main project she worked on was building water fountains for families. During this project, she gained a deep respect and bond with the parents she worked alongside, and loved playing with the children of the towns she worked with on her SAME (South African Medical Expedition) trip. Visiting Africa may have served as the main inspiration for her devotion to the community, but growing up in Harbor Springs also played a large role. Carbeck said she’s been influenced by the nature of the community. “People are so caring about each other in Harbor Springs,” she noted. Even though it is a small town, Carbeck said she did not feel any limitations placed on her ability to volunteer. “There are so many opportunities, even in a small community,” Carbeck explained. Moving on from Harbor Springs to the University of Michigan will not change Carbeck’s view on community service. She said she plans to make the most of all the different opportunities college has to offer, one of those being service groups.

Harbor Springs Community Food Pantry June Report: 933 family members served The Harbor Springs Community Food Pantry served 355 families, with 993 family members, during the month of June. For the first half of the year, the pantry averaged 87 families per week. Fresh vegetables are always in high demand-and are most difficult for the food pantry to obtain. In this season of plenty, food pantry coordinator, Pringle Pfeifer, noted any shared harvests are greatly appreciated. “If there are any gardeners out there who have bumper crops of almost any fresh produce in the coming months, our families would love to help them out. We get some produce from Manna, Glen’s and Bill’s, but not nearly enough for everybody, and it is very expensive to buy,” she said. The pantry opens its doors at 8 a.m. every Monday morning and start serving at 9:30 a.m.. “Ideally, any produce could be delivered between 8-9:30 a.m., but we might be able to arrange a pickup on Monday morning if needed. We have very limited space to refrigerate fresh produce, but some crops do ok for a few days just out in the basement because the basement is fairly cool,” Pfeifer said. Interested in donating or have a question? Contact Pfeifer (231) 526-8737.

In the end, Carbeck said her service to others is equally beneficial to her. “I like working with people because seeing them smile is really rewarding for me,” Carbeck said.

Little Traverse Triathlon Golf to take place Sunday -CONTINUED from page 1.

a four mile run out and back on Beach Drive through Wequetonsing. The transition space is in Jean Jardine Park, between City Hall and Zoll Street Beach. The finish is also in Jean Jardine Park, and makes for a great spot for spectators. The event’s brevity compared to many other triathlons-- and the ability to have a three person team (one for each leg of the race)-- helps people of all levels, from triathlon first-timers all the way to experienced triathletes, participate. “This is a family fun but yet competitive event,” said Tom Behan, triathlon race director and Bay Tennis & Fitness owner. While the race is designed to be accessible for all, experienced triathletes are sure to attend. A Harbor Springs local, Mike Kilbourn, has been a previous triathlete of the Triathlon. Currently 68 years old, he said he will “absolutely” be returning to race in the event. Kilbourn competes in about eight races a year, four of which are triathlons. From years of experience, his knowledge of triathlons is impressive, and he noted the Little Traverse Triathlon is different and exceptional. “It’s a beautiful triathlon,” he said. Additionally, the relay feature of the event allows for participants to choose their favorite sport and and split up the rest of the race with friends. The only qualification for the race is that the participants must be age 15 and older or be accompanied by a parent. The event hosts a Mini Kids Race starting at 8:15 a.m., which consists of a short wade/swim, 100 yard bike, and a 100 yard run. The kids race is free and available to

with Cynthia Morse Zumbaugh

Ted It says volumes about where we are as a society to realize that this movie won the box office the week that it debuted. I wish that I could be morally superior and say that it completely disgusted me, but I can’t. It made me laugh, though I am not particularly proud about enjoying the humor in a story about a profane, fornicating teddy bear. If you appreciate the humor of Seth McFarlane, writer and star of Family Guy, you will enjoy this movie. If you are not familiar with the particular brand of humor that is Mr. McFarlane, be prepared. There is no situation too low if it might result in a laugh, he strives to be equally offensive to everyone and everything and if you shock easily, this isn’t for you. John Bennet (played as an adult by Mark Wahlberg) is hopelessly lonely child, yearning pathetically for a friend. When his parents give him a very large teddy bear for Christmas, he names the bear Ted and makes a wish that the bear will come to life and be his forever friend. Magically, he does just that. For a time, Ted enjoys fame as a walking, talking teddy bear, but as this movie opens, it is twenty-seven years later and Ted and John are still best buds, leading slacker lives while lounging on the sofa smoking pot and watching Flash Gordon reruns. This doesn’t make John’s girlfriend, Lori (Mila Kunis) very happy. Eventually, after their non-stop juvenile behavior drives her to the edge, Lori gives John an ultimatum; her or the bear. Add to this mix Lori’s lecherous boss (Joel McHale) and a psycho father (Giovanni Ribisi) trying to steal Ted for his spoiled child and you have a very muddled (and predictable) plot, but with some definitely good laughs thrown in along the way. It’s not a career making performance for any of the stars, but Wahlberg and Kunis are both so likeable they make it work and McFarlane’s Ted is obnoxious beyond all belief, but he remains pretty hard to dislike. If you are into eighties nostalgia, this movie is for you. With guest appearances by Sam Jones and Tom Skerrit, a good soundtrack and lots of eighties references, it is a lot of fun in that respect. Rated R, and they are not kidding. Yes, there is a cute little bear, but this is absolutely not for children; there are sexual situations and innuendo, non-stop profanity and frequent drug use.

Books of Note THE BUDDHA IN THE ATTIC by Julie Otsuka

This elegantly, poetically written book is one voice telling the story of a people who struggled to come to America, who struggled to become American, only to have America turn away from them, take their freedon and all that they had struggled to earn. The sadness is that not one voice opposed or even questioned America’s decisions toward the Japanese. The Japanese were imprisoned because of the country they came from, the way they looked, the climate of the time - and not because of anything they did in this country. The story of the young women brought from Japan to San Francisco nearly a century ago is told like a song, a chorus of women’s voices - there are no heroes or heroines and little dialogue. The picture Ms. Otsuka paints so skillfully is of the plight of an entire group of people. The story is one we should be reminded of lest we make the same mistakes again. The story contains sadness and defeat, but also bright moments of happiness and success. It is so expertly written that it flows and carries you along until you feel a part of the moment, the time. The Buddha in the Attic was a National Book Award Finalist, A Best Book of the Year by the Boston Globe and Vogue and a New York Times Notable Book. This book is an excellent choice for book groups because of the timely issues it raises. It is a story that holds meaning for many generations and is steeped in history. It is such good use of your reading time!!

Now we completely switch gears! This irreverent, hilarious tale revolves around the nameless narrator who has found the meaning of life in Robert Louis Stevenson’s work, Treasure Island. She determines to model her life after Jim Hawkins and her core values will be: Boldness, Resolution, Independence, and Horn-Blowing! Our narrator may have a bit of a problem carrying out her newfound core values - she works part-time at a pet library (yes, you check out pets and return them at a later date!), she relies on her family and her long-suffering boyfriend for financial support, and her idea of boldness is to steal from her employer’s petty cash to buy a parOpen rot! Never mind Daily that her boss was saving that money for an operation for her atmother!! 4pm Our narrator, while intelligent, believes that the world revolves around her and can’t begin to understand why friends and family get so annoyed with her. This is a perfect book for the beach or porch - take it with you for a fun time with funny characters! Reviewed by: Judy Cummings

In addition to open office hours and large community gatherings, there will be several “group specific” events (like summer residents, year round

residents, business owners, community groups, 20 and 30-somethings, etc), as well as work sessions geared toward goals like architecture, waterfront, and streets. The events will officially

share thoughts throughout the week. Contact Harbor Springs city manager, Tom Richards, (231) 526-2104 for additional information or to coordinate barrier-free accomodations.

Springs the past few years. Councilmember John Cupps was pleased to approve the license request. “It’s great for the city to offer commercial fishing,” he added. A second application belonged to Tim Patton, with a request to transport customers for the new Depot Dining Club and Restaurant on Bay Street. Patton plans to use his personal boat to pick up customers on anchored boats, or those using the courtesy deck, Walstrom Marine Basin or Irish Boat Shop docks. Where Patton will drop customers off was not part of Council’s approval. No fee is being charged for the service, but it still needed Council’s approval as an enterprise of a restaurant. Councilmember Rick Holdorph recommended that both approved applicants be subject to inspection of the Coast Guard and city’s marine patrol to regulate safety. Richards noted that both charters hold liability insurance and the city is insured on these plans. Both licenses were authorized by council .The next council meeting will be July 16.
