Harbor Springs

City Council addresses parking; funds connector trail

First review of downtown ideas set for August 15


Final plan review set for Sept. 4

Harbor Light Newspaper

Summer visitors bring busy store fronts, and long lunch lines to the quiet town of Harbor Springs, and with them, the topic of parking seems to rise to the surface as an increasing concern. Harbor Springs City Council was handed not one, but two parking issues on Monday night’s meeting agenda. The first addressed revising the Zoning Code for City Ordinance 383 regarding parking requirements for full line restaurants. Revising the code would make it possible for the restaurant to provide off site parking, utilizing an off site lot that is owned or leased by another party. The Planning Commission recommended council approve the revision. City Manager Tom Richards noted that this is not the end of the planning commission’s plan to examine city parking standards. Mayor, Al Dika, said “It is a small step in the right direction.” Conversely, no change was made regarding the second parking issue. The discussion was brought forth by property owners living above the New York Restaurant in second floor condos. The owners explained that they are forced to constantly move vehicles, walk a significant distance or pay parking tickets due to the city’s three hour summer parking restrictions. The property owners inquired about a parking permit similar to the one given by the marina for the vehicles of boaters. Council did not take action on the request, but Mayor Al Dika encouraged the residents to present concerns to the Downtown -CONTINUED on page 2.

In 2010, while sitting in the LAX terminal en route to Australia, Michigan State University (MSU) junior Josh Graybiel (also a 2007 graduate of Harbor Springs High School) began talking to a fellow traveler who hailed from the Caribbean. The man explained that he worked in the field of aquaponics, a combination of aquaculture and hydroponics. Graybiel, who was working on his BS in fisheries and wildlife, was naturally intrigued. After his chance meeting with the stranger, Graybiel spent much of his 13hour flight thinking about the field of aquaponics. By the time he reached Deakin University in Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia, for his semester abroad, his interest was sparked, and encouraged. “I met a student named Jango, who had a lot of good ideas. We got assigned to a

group project together,” Graybiel said. “He had an aquaponics set up going at his house and that was the first time I was really introduced to it. Australia is big into conserving water and being as efficient as possible.” Upon returning to MSU, Graybiel put his research on aquaponics aside, but said it continued to linger in the back of his mind. “I was still thinking about the aquaculture, but then I had an assignment to -CONTINUED on page 8.

With the “community visioning blitz” behind them, the planners at Wade Trim/living Lab are now focused on developing a downtown enhancement strategy for Harbor Springs. This plan, which will be used to guide the Downtown Development Authority’s creating a more vibrant year-round community, will be presented in a preliminary way on August 15 during the DDA’s regular monthly meeting. -CONTINUED on page 3.

The signing ceremony will take place at North Central Michigan College beginning at 4:15 p.m. It will be held in front of the new Jack and Dorothy Harris Health Education and Science Center, which the Governor will tour privately after the ceremony. The Dark Sky legislation was known as House Bill 5414 before being signed into law by Snyder on July 2, 2012. The bill was originally introduced by 107th District State Rep.

Saving the lives of homeless animals By DETER RACINE Little Traverse Bay Humane Society executive director

At Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, our goal is simple: to save the lives of homeless animals. No animal wants to call a shelter “home,” yet it’s a reality for so many unwanted animals. For every one animal adopted, there are five more who need homes. This is precisely why our staff and board of dedicated animal lovers work tirelessly to improve the lives of our four-legged friends. And while our goal is to give every animal a happy ending, some of their stories literally bring tears to our eyes. Such was the

day that Sheila and her eight puppies arrived at the shelter. Prior to arriving at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, Sheila, a sweet two-year-old Shepherd mix, was pregnant and abandoned in the woods. She gave birth and carried two of her puppies to a nearby road – both still with their little umbilical cords! Fortunately, someone saw her and followed her into the woods to find six more puppies! The family was rescued just in time. When Sheila came out of the crate of the transport car, we could see the desperation in her eyes - something that became more apparent when she didn’t even want to leave her puppies to go outside to go to the bathroom. It was her amazing will to be sure her puppies had a second chance that strengthens our resolve to give each of them just that. When animals come to our shelter, they are neutered, vaccinated, groomed, trained, exercised and loved unconditionally until a permanent,

I am very fond of poems that don’t use more words than they have to. They’re easier to carry around in your memory. There are Chinese poems written 1300 years ago that have survived intact at least in part because they’re models of succinctness. Here’s a contemporary version by Jo McDougall, who lives not in China but in Kansas.

caring home can be found. The average cost to prepare each animal for adoption is more than $450 – and may be more than $1,000 for animals who have been rescued as a result of hoarding, abuse, neglect and abandonment – situations that are on the rise even here in Northern Michigan. Because our shelter is 100 percent donor funded, our members and events are crucial to ensuring that every animal who comes through our doors receives exceptional care. For the past 12 years, Howl at the Moon, our biggest annual fundraiser, has been an exciting and fun-filled evening with one goal: To raise essential funds for Little Traverse Bay Humane Society. And this year, we hope to do just that with the help of our amazing community of animal lovers. Howl at the moon will take place on Thursday, August 23. Guests will enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live music and the thrill of bidding on unique silent and live auction items at the Harbor Springs airport! In addition to the auction items, 100 raffle tickets are available for Michigan shaped Adirondack chairs painted by artist, Aaron Kirby, a lead animator for the Shrek movie series, Shark Tale and Gnomeo and Juliet. Tickets are available for $100 each. The winner will be announced at Howl at the Moon on Thursday, August 23. We believe every animal

Although plans for a Harbor Springs area district library are currently on hold, I would like to clarify the public versus private definitions that continue to confuse the issue. The Friends of the Harbor Springs Area District Library state their goal of establishing “an excellent public library in the Harbor Springs area”. This goal reveals their belief that the current Harbor Springs Library is neither excellent or public. Webster’s New World Dictionary defines public as being “for the use or benefit of all” Although privately funded, the current century-old, millage-free Harbor Springs Library is open to anyone in the Harbor Springs area. So in terms of function it can certainly be considered public. However, I would suggest that we leave the determination of its level of excellence to its patrons and supporters and not to the Friends of the Harbor Springs Area District Library.

Development Authority and Placemaking committees as these groups proceed with downtown planning in accordance with the downtown enhancement plan. “We don’t have a plan yet, but parking will be part of this visioning project. If we do something temporarily it may impose on people downtown,” Dika added. In other meeting news, council awarded Harbor Area Regional Board of Resources (HARBOR, Inc) $4,375 to finish a connector trail as part of the Little Traverse Wheelway. Directional signage and trail head parking will be the most noticeable addition to the already existing path in Kosequat Park (baseball fields) across from Lake Street. The connector trail is meant to help guide people into downtown Harbor Springs, the safest and easiest route possible, explained HARBOR Inc. director Rachel Smolinski said. This part of the trail will also lead to the new Hoyt Trail; construction will start on that project this month. Council also discussed display of goods by downtown merchants which has typically been regulated by the Planning Commission.

Council decided to pass along the duty to the DDA, as they are the group that “should determine what is appropriate for our town”, said City Manager Richards. Richards also presented to the council the option for the city to become a member of the Tree USA program. Requirements of the program include a community forestry program that requests a $2 per capita minimum fee ($2,400 for Harbor Springs), a Tree Board, Tree Ordinance, and an Arbor Day Observance by the city. Council agreed to explore the possibility by public postings seeking interested parties that may be interested in serving on such a board. Gow Litzenberger, who attended the Monday night meeting, announced that his company, Litzenberger Landscape, plans to plant 20 substantial trees each year in the city of Harbor Springs until they have planted 200 trees. Litzenberger is a proponent of the program.

First review of downtown strategy and ideas set for August 15 -CONTINUED from page 1.

City manager Tom Richards said the meeting was moved to 7 City Hall’s City Council Chambers to also include members of the Planning Commission. The more “official” presentation of Wade Trim’s final plan will be held on September 4. “The August 15 meeting is more to say ‘here’s what we’re thinking’ and I anticipate there will be some discussion with the Planning Commission about Wade Trim’s suggestions. It’s a check-in to make sure everyone is on the same page. September 4 is really the meeting when there will be an official presentation,” Richards said. Richards added he expects there to be a printed version of the presentation for public

record, and that community members will be able to view the recommendations this way as well. “The DDA has to have a plan in place to begin capturing income, particularly if they are looking at any Tax Increment Financing options. That’s the state law. What Wade Trim presents, however, will not be the DDA’s actual plan. That has to be set by the members of the Authority. This is more to set the direction, to offer up key points, and to provide professional guidance about goals and objectives.” Part of the benefit of a community having an active Downtown Development Authority is that once a plan is in place, the DDA has the ability to do a variety of things-- from owning buildings to hosting

events-- without needing to go through an approval process at the City Council level. DDA’s also qualify under the federal tax code as a public purpose, allowing the Authority to receive tax-deductible donations like a non-profit organization. Richards noted the DDA has already accepted such funds, which were used to fund the Wade Trim study. “Everybody is excited about how successful the community input gathering sessions were,” Richards said. “I’ve heard words from Wade Trim like ‘there were two or three times more people that we expected,’ which I think is fantastic. It can only help this process; we gave people the opportunity to be heard before creating a plan, and many took advantage of it. It

makes the process authentic, because it really does represent the views of lots of different groups of people.” All meetings of the Harbor Springs Downtown Development Authority are open to

the public. The DDA’s next meeting is August 15 at 7 p.m. The formal Wade Trim presentation of a Downtown Enhancement Strategy will take place on September 4.

Governor to visit Petoskey -CONTINUED from page 1. Sky Park in May 2011. The Headlands, located in northwest Emmet County, is the seventh International Dark Sky Park in the United States and just the 10th in the world. “Tourism experiences of all types are important for Michigan and our region, including enjoyment of a pure, undiluted night sky,” Foster said, upon introducing the legislation. Foster will join the Governor for Thursday’s ceremony, along with Emmet County Commissioners and local dark-sky advocates; the public is invited to attend the signing ceremony. Public Act 251 does not place any requirements on land owners; it simply requires that any lighting on the included public lands be directed downward so as not to interfere with the view of the night sky. While the legislative action will not require homeowners or businesses to

change their lighting practices, it is intended to encourage more residents and visitors to protect the night sky as a resource that sets Emmet County apart, according to Lyn Johnson, Emmet County Controller. Mary Stewart Adams, the county’s Dark Sky Park Program Director, said she is thrilled the Governor is supporting efforts to protect the night sky. “A deep, dark night is a vanishing resource for inspiration and creative genius that is largely overlooked in the developed world,” Adams Old sport said. “The State of Michigan can be proud of its leadership role in recognizing the necessity of protecting such a resource.” Along with covering nearly 21,000 acres of state land in Emmet County, PA 251 also encompasses several hundred acres of state land in southern Michigan.

PUBLIC NOTICE CITY OF HARBOR SPRINGS ORDINANCE NO. 382 ORDINANCE NO. 383 An ordinance to amend Chapter 50 of Title V of the Code of the City of Harbor Springs, by amending and restating Section 50.301(4)(c) therein. WHEREAS, the Planning Commission of the City of Harbor Springs has studied the existing provisions of the Zoning Code pertaining to the off-street, off-site parking required for a full line restaurant that has been approved as a special land use under Section 50.1202(3) of the Zoning Code, and whether it would be advisable to permit any such restaurant to satisfy the off-street parking requirement by using off-site, off-street parking spaces under an agreement or agreements that are otherwise satisfy existing Zoning Code Section 50.301(4)(c), but which agreements are terminable, and has determined that changes to the Zoning Code are desirable; and, WHEREAS, the Planning Commission conducted a public hearing on June 21, 2012, on the proposed amendment to the Harbor Springs Zoning Code, as contained in this Ordinance; and, WHEREAS, after said public hearing, on July 19, 2012 the Harbor Springs Planning Commission recommended the adoption of the zoning provisions contained in this Ordinance; and, WHEREAS, the City Council has studied this matter, accepts the recommendation of the Planning Commission, concurs therewith, and finds that the adoption of the within Ordinance is necessary for the health, safety and welfare of the City of Harbor Springs, NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY OF HARBOR SPRINGS ORDAINS: Section 1 Chapter 50 of Title V of the Code of the City of Harbor Springs is hereby amended by amending and restating Section 50.301(4) (c) in its entirety to read as follows: “(c) With the approval of the Planning Commission, the location of off-street parking spaces required under this Chapter may be varied off-site of an owner’s premises if the off-site location, in the determination of the Planning Commission: (i) Is within sufficient proximity of the property owner’s premises such that the property owner, the property owner’s employees, customers, clients or members, will normally utilize the off-site parking spaces rather than public parking spaces or facilities. - or (ii) is made available for parking to the public at large and is within sufficient proximity of the property owner’s premises that parking congestion within the vicinity of the property owner’s premises should be reduced. No off-site parking space shall be approved under this Section 50.301(4)(c) if the space or spaces proposed for use are already committed to off-street parking for the owner of such spaces or are committed or dedicated to another off-site property use under this section. If the off-site location is not irrevocably committed or dedicated to the property owner’s benefit, or to the public at large, as the case may be, the property owner must: (i) reserve sufficient space on the property owner’s property (to be indicated on the property owner’s Site Plan) to meet the off-street parking requirement should the right to use the off-site location terminate. If the right to use the offsite location is terminated, the property owner shall forthwith provide the required off-street parking spaces in conformity with this Chapter; or, (ii) in the case of a full line restaurant in the CBD that has received special land use approval under Section 50.1202 (3) of the Zoning Code, the property owner must sign an agreement with the City of Harbor Springs that will be prepared by the City Attorney that shall provide that if the right to use the off-site location is terminated, the property owner shall immediately terminate any restaurant service except as expressly permitted under Section 50.1202(3)(c) of the Zoning Code; and that the property owner shall pay all costs of enforcement of such agreement and this Section of the Code, including the City’s attorney fees; and that if such fees are not paid by the property owner within 30 days after billing, all such fees shall be assessed against the property on the next City tax roll, pursuant to City Charter Section 2.2(s). A violation of these requirements shall be deemed a violation of this Code.” Section 2 The provisions of this ordinance are hereby declared to be severable, and if any clause, sentence, word, section or provision is declared void or unenforceable for any reason by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining portions of said ordinance shall remain in force. Section 3 This ordinance shall take effect ten days after its adoption and publication. Section 4 A copy of this Ordinance may be purchased or inspected during normal business hours at City Hall, 160 Zoll Street, Harbor Springs, Michigan. We hereby certify that the foregoing is a true copy of an ordinance adopted by the City Council of the City of Harbor Springs at a regular meeting held on August 6, 2012. Al Dika, Mayor Ronald B.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 Much of the world, it seems, is stricken with Olympic fever and I count myself among that number. I admit it; I have become an Olympic junky. The USA has had incredible success thus far, but even if that weren’t the case, it’s always great to watch the competition. It’s impossible not to feel real joy for the winners and sympathy for the disappointed, whether or not they are on “our” team. This year has had some questionable elements to the games, though. One thing

Thursday, August 9th at 5:00 p.m., to welcome

Dr. Michael J. Hightower He’ll be signing his new book, THE PATTERSONS.

I’m noticing this year is that it certainly doesn’t seem to be about competition and sportsmanship for a lot of these teams. Have there ever been this many scandals and disqualifications and appeals before? Maybe I have selective memory, but this just doesn’t seem right. (And let me go on record as saying that I think Gabby Douglas AND her hair are beautiful and that those who would criticize her need some serious help.) And maybe I was doing a Rip Van Winkle for a couple of decades or something because I don’t remember when all of these new “sports” were added. I’ve almost been expecting them to pull out a Twister mat and play that for the gold. Watching the flashbacks during the telecast bring back some wonderful memories. The first Olympic memory that I have is of Peggy Fleming; she was so beautiful and so graceful, I wanted to be her (the fact that I can’t skate a lick and have no grace whatsoever did not deter me.) I don’t think that I really remember seeing Tommie Smith and John Carlos raise their fists in the black power salute, but I certainly remember discussing it in school that fall. The 1972 Olympics are burned in the memories of anyone who watched them.

For most of us, this was our first taste of terrorism and it was frightening. Almost as frightening is the fact that I was talking with two teenagers last week, 16 & 19, and when I mentioned the Munich Olympics and what happened there, neither of them had ever heard of it. Some stories need to be told and retold and we owe it to those fallen athletes that we don’t forget. That was also the year we were first treated to the pigtails and brilliant smile of Olga Korbut as she charmed us on her way to Olympic gold. It was also the year of Mark Spitz and his seven gold medals. Be honest, how many of you had that famous poster hanging on your wall? It was also the year of the men’s basketball debacle; I hate sour grapes, but 40 years later, we still were robbed of the gold. Four years later, Olga was back but she was eclipsed by the quiet perfection of Nadia Comaneci. Nadia was as restrained as Olga was exuberant, but when she won, the smile that lit her face was amazing. (And if you are into love stories, how about the fact that she met her future husband in fellow gymnast Bart Connor at the Olympics and years later, after her defection from Romania, he

contacted her and invited her back to Oklahoma and they eventually wed.) In the winter games, Dorothy Hamill won the gold and had an entire nation mimicking her haircut. I was working at the ski school at Boyne Highlands during those winter games and that was the year of Franz Klammer and all lessons had to be scheduled around his races. That was also the year that saw a pre-Kardashian Bruce Jenner prove that he was the greatest athlete in the world as he took back the decathlon title for the U.S. Everyone has their favorite and unforgettable Olympic images. Who can forget the USA Hockey team defeating the USSR on their way to gold in 1980, Mary Lou Retton bouncing and smiling and Carl Lewis winning everything he entered, or so it seemed or Greg Louganis, incredible for so long before the frightening head injury during a dive. The disappointment of favorite Mary Decker after her collision with Zola Budd, Edwin Moses gliding over hurdles with seemingly no effort, the courage of Kerri Strug on the vault and the “Dream Team” making their basketball debut and wowing the world; these are images that remain and will now be joined by the smiles and ex-

Petoskey Farmers Market Aug. 10 The summer crops are coming in and there’s no better time to visit the Downtown Petoskey Farmers Market. On Friday, August 10, the market will host another tasting day from 10 a.m. until noon. Samples of products from 25 farms will be available for a free tasting. The market hours are 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. every Friday through September 28. The location of the market is on Howard Street, between Mitchell and Michigan Streets.

cellence of Gabby Douglas and Missy Franklin. Speaking of smiles that will be remembered, I would be remiss if I did not mention the passing of Myrtle (Mert) Johnson. This woman was such a part of the backbone of Harbor Springs, her restaurant was a landmark and her pies were legend. So many people worked for or with her over the years and they all remember her with such joy, that grin and that sparkle in her eye. She didn’t suffer fools and she wasn’t one to put up with nonsense, but she had a heart of gold. I didn’t know her as an employer, I knew her first as my friend Kay Shepler’s grandma (step) and I have wonderful memories of visiting her house and playing in the barn or sneaking in the restaurant after school because she knew Mert would slip us some kind of snack. Very sincere condolences to Dixie, Sharon and Myrna and to all of Mert’s family; what a loss this is for the community. I don’t have permission to mention this next event, but once again, easier to ask forgiveness and Eric isn’t the one to ask for recognition, so here I go anyway. Each August for the past five years, Eric Wilde has ridden in the Pan Mass Challenge, which from what I read is the most successful

bike-a-thon in the nation, raising money for cancer research and care. Eric, class of ’77, first rode in memory of his friend, Kathy Shepler. Over the past five years, he has sadly added to the dedication to include Maggie Miller, Steve White, Eddie Kelbel and most recently, Rick Olson. I just wanted to mention this and suggest that anyone wishing to donate in any of their memories can do so by visiting and choosing make a donation for a rider and typing in Wilde. It is certainly a wonderful cause and a way to remember some wonderful friends. Lots of birthday wishes going out this week, the first to Kevin Cranick on Thursday, August 9. Saturday, 8/11, will see Diane Morris Kabat, Carolyn Wilson and Brenda Sproule celebrating and on Sunday, wish a Happy Birthday to Gale Kepford.

Talking History with Tom Graham

Graham is a wealth of information (and stories) about these grand ghosts of Harbor Springs resort history. Tom’s program will begin promptly at 5:30 pm but we invite you to join us at 5:00 pm for a light wine and cheese reception. The talk will take place in the second-floor Anton Library at the Harbor Springs History Museum, 349 E Main Street. Admission is $5 per person and free to current Historical Society members. The Harbor History Talks are presented ten months out of the year by the Historical Society and are sponsored in part by Graham Real Estate. For more information, visit www.HarborSpringsHistory. org or call the Historical Society at (231) 526-9771.

The Harbor Springs Area Historical Society invites you to take a walk through the historic hotels of Harbor Springs on Thursday, August 9 beginning at 5:00 pm. Our “concierge” for this Harbor History Talk is Tom Graham, local resident and historian. Tom’s presentation includes great historic images of Harbor Springs, our waterfront and a number of the old hotels. During his presentation, the audience will look through the lobby of the Ramona Park Inn, learn about the various names of the short-lived Kensington Hotel, and take a peek inside some of the resort hotels that operated into the 1960s.

Harbor grad starts up sustainable, local ‘aquaponics’ farm business here

Graybiel opens fish tank to check on the yellow perch that make up the second half of the aquaponics system. -CONTINUED from page 1.

research and present a unique aquaculture design of some sort,” Graybiel said. “That’s when I presented a multi-trophic aquaculture design that was really aquaponics. Australia gave me the background, then my teacher, Amber Peters, gave us the assignment in class and it really stuck.” Graybiel continued learning more and more about aquaculture when he work at the Oden Fish Hatchery last summer, giving tours as an interpreter. “The manager of the fish hatchery gave me a huge book with aquaponics-type research that had been done, and that really started me in the right direction,” Graybiel said. He attended the First Annual Aquaponics Association Conference in Orlando, Florida in September of 2011. “That had a lot of great support and great people who were very open with their information. It’s kind of a lifestyle for people who really enjoy it,” Graybiel said. Moving forward with his plan to pursue his own aquaponics setup, Graybiel wrote a business grant for one of his senior classes which outlined a business start-up for a sustainable aquaponics setup. The idea for an aquaponics business kicked into action when his friend, and fellow Harbor Springs graduate,

Teddy Griffin called him with an opportunity to put his goal into action. “Teddy gave me a call in December and said he had been thinking about what I’m doing, and found out his school, Loyola University, was doing an adventure capitalist business plan competition,” Graybiel said. “It was due in March so I had some time. I was just graduating from State and I had somewhat started on a business plan in the grant writing class.” From there, Graybiel said it was all about solidifying his plan and working it out on paper. The best place to do to put inspiration into an actual plan for the future, he decided, was Marquette, Michigan. “I moved up to Marquette and decided to work on it up there, which was a good place to be, a lot of good people to see,” Graybiel said. “There was the Peter White Library, which gave me countless hours to concentrate. It is so cool watching snow come in and fog come off the bay. It was just such a great place, so I felt even if I didn’t win, I was able to hang out there for a while.” The countless hours of hard work and dedication indeed paid off, however, when Graybiel and Griffin took first place in the competition, earning $5,000 to put their business plan into action. “I don’t know how many people entered the competi-

tion but I believe there were five finalists, and most of the plans were centered around sustainability,” Graybiel said. Shortly thereafter, Graybiel was introduced to Mari Schumaker, director of the Community Schools programs and Performing Arts Center for Harbor Springs Schools, and also, owner of the Red School Farm. Schumaker offered him a work exchange for some room in her greenhouse. “She really helped provide a great opportunity for me to get this going,” Graybiel said, of Schumaker’s offer. By the end of April, 2012, he was busy building five 4x16x1-foot deep grow beds, one named for each of the Great Lakes, digging out a tank for the yellow perch and setting up a pump system for the operation. “Basically, when you’re looking at an aquaponics system, what you have is fish in a fish tank, and the water that they’re living in is pumped out into a grow bed of some sort,” Graybiel said. “The design can change within an aquaponics system, but I’m working with a floating raft system, so basically, there are raft boards with holes in them that I have put plants into and the water reaches the roots there. The plants clean the water, filtering the nutrients from the water, and then it is drained back into the fishtank and the fish have clean water.” “What is going on in the water is something else. It is a biological filter; there is bacteria converting ammonia and it is going through a nitrification cycle and the final step is nitrate. In order for that to happen, a natural balance has to stabilize a colony of beneficial bacteria.” It took about a month for the filter to become able to colonize and convert the ammonia into nitrate. Graybiel is growing leafy greens such as lettuce, kale and other herbs due to the fact that they need alot of nitrate. “What I am looking forward to is seeing how long I can just be in a greenhouse, because as the ground gets colder you can’t plant seeds,” Graybiel said. “But the water should stay warm, because water at capacity doesn’t change temperatures that quickly. I have about 4,000 gallons of water in my system so I’m hoping that will be able to stay warm for a while.” Graybiel explained each failure should in turn be a success in the long run, as

the learning process adds experience. His main goal is building a model to work from to show the system’s success economically, environmentally and socially in the first year. He also adds that it is a good skill that he will have with him for the rest of his life. The second half of the system is raising fish that will eventually be processed and sold to markets or restaurants. Most systems of this sort use tilapia due to their resilience, but he has chosen yellow perch because of both ties to the area and popularity in the local restaurant industry. He said yellow perch are very

fickle and tough to raise, but he’s enjoying the task. “The reason I chose yellow perch is because I can have them in water that is below 50-degrees and they still be ok, but tilapia can’t go below 65 or 70,” Graybiel said. “Really, if I am providing local produce I would like to have a fish that is really iconic to fish frys in the area.” Graybiel obtained an aquaculture license for this project so he can raise and sell fish, as long as it is processed at a certified location such as Bliss Gardens Community Kitchen. Grabiel has also been speaking with Rob Sarrine of Traverse City about work-

ing with the ‘food hub’ in progress. “Rob Sarrine is really trying to create a food hub down in Traverse City, and that has potential for people interested in aquaponics to learn and even to just see large scale farming,” Graybiel said. “I can definitely see there being an education part and a consulting part to this in the future.” “There are a lot of great people out there doing a lot of great work, trying to create a local michigan economy,” Graybiel said. “I believe aquaponics can help service a unique market where you can efficiently grow produce without any inputs -CONTINUED on page 9.

Graybiel holds up one of his lettuce plants to show the root structure that sits in the water and works as a filter in the aquaponics system.

Top right: Graybiel checks the growth progress of the plants in his nursery set up. Once the plants are mature enough he will move them to larger, more dispersed rafts in the aquaponics system. Bottom left: Graybiel pours topsoil over clay balls out of which the roots of plants will grow to reach the water below the rafts picking up nutrients and filtering the water for the fish at the same time. Bottom right: Graybiel uses test strips to check the levels of nitrogen in the grow beds before adding them to the full aquaponics system. The aquaponics raft system produces high levels of nitrogen making it an ideal system to grow leafy greens such as lettuce, spinach, kale and other herbs.

Coastal Crawl results

The 2012 Coastal Crawl was a success, despite threatening overnight weather that passed during early morning hours just before the race got underway. Some 200 swimmers participated in the annual open water event. The three-mile race was cancelled due to high winds and risk for volunteers in boats and kayaks; however, all three-mile swimmers switched to the two-mile event. “It is hard for the swimmers to get a good line of sight, as they really can’t lift their heads high enough to see where to go and our kayakers have a hard time seeing the swimmers in the larger waves,” said race organizer, Marilyn Early. She added that dozens of swimmers who had hoped to swim the three-mile event were thankful at the end of the two-mile race, as conditions for that course were difficult enough. Near Harbor Point, high waves and wind pushed swimmers into shore, which made swimming in a straight line a serious challenge. The one-mile and the kid’s halfmile saw pretty calm water. Race winners were Jacob Bahl, 32, Lansing, time 49.22; Garden Peas Erica rose, 30, Ann Arbor, time 43.48; Blake Howe,Harvested 18, from our Lansing, time 20.37; Reghan Boldt, 15, Hamlake, MN, time Daily.

That’s not LOVE. Excessive texting and calling is a form of control.

The History of the Odawa Homecoming Pow Wow

Golf Hole-in-one Congrats to Howard Canada who made his first Ace on #17 at Harbor Point Golf Course on Friday during the Mens Play. Way to go Howard.

The Odawa Homecoming Pow Wow is August 11 and 12. Little Traverse Bay Band Tribal Citizen, Winnay Wemigwase, shares the history of the event as printed in the Tribal newsletter. By WINNAY WEMIGWASE LTBB Tribal Citizen The first “Indian Naming Ceremony,” which served to honor those who helped Native people and their causes, was held near what is now the Harbor Master’s office in Harbor Springs, MI, in 1934. At these ceremonies, nonIndian individuals were “adopted” into the tribe and given Indian names. These ceremonies continued for eight years with one person adopted each year. No ceremonies were held due to the war from 1942 to 1945. The ceremonies resumed in 1946. On November 9, 1947, the Michigan Indian Foundation, Inc. was founded. The purpose of this group was to preserve Native culture and to help the local Native community. With the continual increase of spectators at the Indian Naming Ceremonies, the foundation initiated construction on an updated amphitheater in the spring of 1948. This outdoor theater would be known as the Harbor Springs Ottawa Indian Stadium. The naming ceremonies came to an end approximately 10 years later. These large

scale events changed from the Naming Ceremonies to a yearly production of the play “Hiawatha.” These pageants were described as very elaborate and involved a lot of local Native families, dedication and work. The Hiawatha Pageant was performed in the Ottawa Indian Stadium until the 1960s. In 1992, the First Annual Odawa Homecoming Pow Wow was held at the Ottawa Stadium in downtown Harbor Springs. It was hosted by the Andrew J. Blackbird Museum, and the committee was chaired by Shirley Naganashe-Oldman. It served to bring our people back to the stadium for singing and dancing and to educate the local community about who we are as contemporary Odawak. The Homecoming Pow

Wows were held there yearly through 2001. The pow wow moved from the Ottawa Stadium to the current Pleasantview Road location in 2002. The current location brought the pow wow to tribal property and to the center of our community. It sits adjacent to the LTBB Governmental Center and our Natural Resource Department building, both places being central to the daily business of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians (LTBB). As hosts of the Annual Odawa Homecoming Pow Wow, the LTBB community continues its tradition of celebrating who we are through song and dance and its tradition of “Sharing the Circle.”

A recent article by Graham Gettel in the Harbor Light Newspaper sparked some fond memories for reader Anne Muckerman. She kindly sent a 1940 photo of NM 3; Muckerman is on right at the tiller and Johnny Ford is “standing with his stopwatch telling the crew when to come about for the start of a race.”

Local riders compete at dressage and jumping competition in Suttons Bay Submitted by KARIN OFFIELD Over the weekend in Sutton’s Bay, Michigan, Black Star Farm hosted the July Stepping Stones Dressage and Jumping competitions. Horses and riders trained by Karin Offield won Champion and Reserve ribbons in five

divisions. Summer intern, 18-year old Rachel Hughs of Muskegon, Michigan rode Karin Flint’s flashy Celle Francais gelding, “Ivanhoe” to the Introductory Dressage Junior Championships. Her scores were 61.675, 72.500 and 68.500 respectively. The up and coming rid-

ing star was twelve year old Mary Otto, the daughter of Mary and Bob Otto of St. Louis, Missouri and summer residents of Wequetonsing. Aboard Brek-n-Ridge Farm trained “Box Car Annie”, Otto took home the Introductory Dressage Children’s Championships (her scores were 71.875, 69.375 and 62.500) and the Cross Rail Equitation Division’s Championship. Making a debut into the Novice Hunter division, Otto guided the green pony to a third, fourth, fifth and a sixth place win. Brek-n-Ridge Farm’s employee Andrew Figures earned high marks in the Training Level of Dressage culminating a summer’s worth of work in the high 60 percentiles. His horse “Twister” is a Spanish Norman, a breed known to carry Knights in Armor. Polishing off the Championships was Harbor Spring’s high school student 15-year old Marjori Boldt, the daughter of Laura Lenkey. Boldt’s wins on her newly purchased “Covenant” earned her the Reserve Championship in the Open Equitation and the

Championship in the Open Hunter Division. “Covenant and I have already learned so much together,” Boldt said. “We have




traveled to a Pony Club Rally, a Pony Club Super Camp, and I preformed a Pas de Deux with only a few months under our belt.”

Books of Note LET THE DEVIL SLEEP by John Verdon

Those of you who have met Retired NYPD Detective David Gurney know that he isn’t taking to retirement as his wife hoped he would. In Verdon’s first mystery novel, THINK OF A NUMBER, Gurney is pulled out of retirement to help an acquaintance who is being threatened. Gurney is a crime junkie who needs the adrenaline rush of the chase. In Verdon’s second novel, SHUT YOUR EYES TIGHT, Gurney is again drawn into a case so intriguing that to walk away from it is unthinkable, even though his wife Madeleine wishes he would, but somehow knows he can’t. LET THE DEVIL SLEEP finds Gurney once again drawn into the familiar and adrenalinefueled world of murder. Naive Kim Corazon is writing and filming what she hopes will be a tv documentary. It will focus on the other victims of the Good Shepherd murders - the families and children. These murders occurred exactly ten years ago and have remained unsolved. Kim has the enthusiasm and idealism of the young as she begins her interviews for The Orphans of Murder, the title of her documentary. Someone doesn’t want her unearthing any more information and bizarre things start happening to her and to Gurney, as he becomes more involved. The author skillfully sets up the story so that midway the reader is questioning everyone as a possible suspect and it isn’t until the very end that all the pieces of the puzzle come together. In this novel Gurney’s son Kyle is featured more prominently and works with his father on the case and also works to establish a relationship with his father. Kyle and Kim become romantically involved and they too are possible suspects. There are great characters throughout: Jack Hardwick, the rough-talking cop who assists Gurney even while insulting him; Rudy Getz, the slimy tv executive; and Max Clinter, a militia-type obsessed with finding the Good Shepherd. This is another perfect summer read full of twists, mystery, action, danger, good guys, bad guys, fires, blood trails, and of course, the FBI! Reviewed by: Judy Cummings
