Lake Street house fire last week draws Harbor, RFC departments A house on the corner of Lake and Hoyt Streets that is well-known (and loved) for its holiday decor-- be it Halloween, Fourth of July, or Christmas-- caught fire in Harbor Springs on Wednesday, November 13. The Harbor Springs Area Fire Dept. was called to a possible structure fire 10:48 p.m. Richard and Dee Lantz’s residence, 693 E. Lake St., and upon arrival, firefighters found heavy smoke and flames inside. The Lantz’s and their children were already safe outside when the fire department reached the house. According to Harbor Springs fire chief Dick Schiller, his department requested manpower assistance from the Readmond Friendship Cross Village Fire Department, due to the size and age of the structure. The Harbor Springs electric department was called to shut off the power to the residence. “Firefighters gained entry into the main floor and quickly knocked down the fire in the living room. Another team made entry into the basement and found heavy fire and smoke and went to work to extinguish the fire there. A third team using ladders gained entry into the second floor and found that the fire had extended into a front bedroom with heavy smoke throughout,” Schiller said. He noted all three teams worked simultaneously and were able to extinguish the majority of the fire. “During this time, firefighters on the outside of the structure were -CONTINUED on page 5.

It was a typical November Sunday-windy, grey, sleet spitting from the sky-- when Charlevoix resident Brook Barney pulled into the driveway. A small gathering of folks made a semicircle around the back of his pickup, waiting to catch a glimpse of the big wooden traveling crate he had with him. Or more accurately, to lay eyes on the stunning Red Tail Hawk inside the crate. Barney, who first discovered the art of falconry in 1990, has been caring for and rehabilitating birds for more than two decades now. “In 1990, I moved to Salt Lake City. The family that I lived with for a month practiced falconry. So I had quite the education; I read every book I could get my hands on. I had an opportunity to go hunting with Steve Chindgren, one of the handful of known falconers. That was it, I was hooked! Next step, I had to get licensed.” Barney has worked with approximately 16 birds over the years. He’s currently caring for Ayla, a large male red tail hawk. Perched on Barney’s Inventory glove, the bird looks like a majestic Clearance work of art, all the rich brown, red, orange, grey hues hardwood Menofand Women forests layered in his feathers. Ayla Hilda cocks his head, fluffs himself up, eyes each one of his onlookers with eyes winter hours 11-5 like endless pools of black night. The Mon-sat power of a Red Tail Hawk, of a bird of prey in general,address is felt in phone the deepest places of muscle and bone-- the primal understanding of the word “hunter.”



“They have such a commanding presence,” Barney noted of Red Tail Hawks. “Working with an immature Red Tail is like having a new puppy. They become tamed and trained very quickly. What I like about flying Red Tails in northern Michigan is that they are capable of taking a fairly wide range of game.” -CONTINUED on page 9.

Brook Barney has been an avid falconer for more than two decades. His current hunting partner, Ayla, is a Red Tail Hawk who will eventually be returned to the wild.

The Welcome, a replica of a 1774 ship originally built in Mackinaw City, may soon find a new home at the Headlands International Dark Sky Park, owned by Emmet County. (Courtesy photo)

The Welcome may be coming home to Emmet County The replica 1774 Armed Sloop Welcome is currently owned and maintained by the Maritime Heritage Alliance in Traverse City. Emmet County has been in talks with the MHA to acquire the vessel, at a cost of $1, for use as a showpiece in a possible new structure at the Headlands International Dark Sky Park. The Welcome is a replica of the 1774 ship that was originally built in Mackinaw City at Michilimackinac by John Askin. At 55 feet in deck length and overall sparred length of 87 feet, the Welcome was built by the Mackinac Island State Park Commission at Fort Michilimackinac to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. For four decades it served as a window to the past, making American history come alive for thousands of people who toured her decks. In 1992, the MHA became custodian of the vessel, with the group’s craftsmen and women spending untold hours rebuilding major portions of the hull and other features. -CONTINUED on page 5.

Remember active duty service men, women during coming holidays, VA urges Thousands of U.S. servicemen and women will be on active duty in locations around the globe during this holiday season, which is quickly approaching. Emmet County Veterans Affairs Director Jim Alton and his “chief of staff” Rick Wiertalla are asking residents to remember these military personnel stationed and at war in foreign countries. “This county has a lot of men and women serving around the world,” said Alton. The Veterans Affairs office helps coordinate care packages and gift items that can be sent to U.S. troops. Alton said troops particularly appreciate food items (nonperishable and nonalcoholic) such as dried fruits and beef jerky. Personal care products are also appropriate items to send. “Even sending cards to our troops to let them know they are cared about is important,” Alton added. To coordinate a care package to Emmet County troops or other U.S. servicemen and women, contact the Veterans’ Affairs office at (231) 348-1780 or email The office is also asking residents to provide the names/addresses of their loved ones so they may receive a care package.

College joins project to train A tradition of supporting local businesses 10,000 older workers for new jobs North Central Michigan College was recently chosen to join the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program, a national effort to train 10,000 baby boomers for new jobs in health care, education and social services. The program is sponsored by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). The college will assist adults age 50 and over in completing degrees or certificates in high-demand occupations that give back to the community. With many adults age 50 and over out of work or seeking to transition to a new career, the program offers skill updates and career makeovers for baby boomers. North Central Michigan College anticipates using the funds to develop an eldercare certificate program by building upon two existing medical programs. “We are delighted to be a part of this program,” said Dr. Cameron Brunet-Koch, president of North Central. “The Plus 50 initiative will support growth industries in our community as well as completion goals for the college.” Two other Michigan colleges join North Central. They are Delta College (University Center, Mich.) and Montcalm Community College (Sidney, Mich.). Since 2008, AACC and its network of Plus 50 Initiative colleges have supported baby boomers coming to college and helped them prepare for new careers. It’s a program that works. Eighty-nine percent of students participating in AACC’s Plus 50 Initiative told an independent evaluator that college workforce training helped them acquire new job skills, and 72 percent attributed landing a job to such training. “Baby boomers who are out of work or want to transition into new career fields need to update their skills. Community colleges are affordable and working to help baby boomers, even if they’ve never stepped on a college campus before,” said Mary Sue Vickers, director for the Plus 50 Initiative at AACC. Vickers added that many of the plus 50 adults who participate in the program also find great meaning and purpose in their work after they get hired. “Jobs in health care, education and social services give baby boomers a way

to give back to society, so plus 50 adults find these careers to be particularly rewarding,” said Vickers. In addition to providing grant funds that augment college workforce training programs, participating colleges gain access to toolkits and extensive marketing resources tailored to reach baby boomers. They also benefit from the advice and support of staff at other community colleges that have successfully implemented programs for older learners and understand the unique needs of the plus 50 student population. The Plus 50 Encore Completion Program is funded with a $3.2-million grant to AACC provided by Deerbrook Charitable Trust. The Plus 50 Encore Completion program supports AACC’s work to increase the number of students who finish degrees, certificates and other credentials. In April 2010, AACC committed alongside other higher education organizations to promote the development and implementation of policies, practices and institutional cultures that will produce 50 percent more students with high quality degrees and certificates by 2020. North Central Michigan College is an opendoor community college based in Petoskey. Through its University Center partnerships, students can take courses leading to certificates, bachelor’s and master’s degrees from participating universities. North Central’s Corporate and Community Education offers workforce training, professional development seminars, and personal interest workshops. In addition to its main campus in Petoskey, North Central offers classes, academic advising, testing and other services in Cheboygan and Gaylord. North Central is an Achieving the Dream Leader College and a MilitaryFriendly School. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the American Association of Community Colleges is the leading advocacy organization representing more than to 1,100 community, junior and technical colleges nationwide. Community colleges are the largest and fastest growing sector of higher education, enrolling 13.4 million credit and non-credit students each year. Learn more at


adies Night in downtown Harbor Springs is always a treat. It’s an evening spent catching up with friends and acquaintances, bouncing between stores, clinking glasses and just enjoying the act of strolling through town. This year, I went with a friend who just moved to town. I loved hearing her reactions and running commentary-- it was such a perfect reminder to be grateful for all the wonder and quirk of being part of a real community.

While Ladies Night only comes once a year (on November 15, opening day of deer hunting’s rifle season), that feeling of belonging to a place, to a collection of people, has stayed with me this week. I’m so glad 30 stores opened their doors, welcomed folks with refreshments, treats, and specials. It allowed a huge gathering of women--and a handful of non-hunting guys, too-- to come together and see exactly what our downtown has to offer. Because the truth is, we have a whole lot of great stuff happening here: great stores with affordable gifts, great people who come to work each day ready to make shopping in person a whole lot more fun than clicking tabs online, and a great atmosphere that only exists when a Main Street (and beyond) is still full of independent, locally owned businesses.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this. How hard many of our local shopkeepers work to have their doors remain open, their employees in a job. And I think it’s worth saying-- Ladies Night is a perfect example of a town banding together to create fun traditions that support business, but in order for traditions like this to continue to flourish, we need these stores to stay downtown. Which means we need to support them, more than one or two times a year. It can be as simple as buying socks (you can do that at Kelbels) or a little hostess gift (Spice Harbor is filled with inexpensive options). It can be walking into Between the Covers instead of staring at the Amazon screen, or treating yourself to a Tom’s Mom’s Cookie, just because. We want to continue growing traditions like Ladies Night, continue finding ways to bring together our community, continue strengthening our connection to our place and each other. As we stretch toward the holiday season, let’s remember our role in that equation-- and make a commitment to shop local whenever we can. Next week, we’ll have our annual special section, Think Local, in this newspaper. While looking through it, celebrate the folks who are living and working in this community, making it the place we all love to call home, no matter what the season. In spirited partnership, Kate Bassett

Alanson council moves to make parks smoke-free The Alanson Village Council has adopted a tobacco-free policy for its four parks. According to Council clerk Iris Lesh, the new policy supports the Council’s belief that tobacco use in park areas is detrimental to the health of everyone using the park system. “Our goal is to demonstrate to youth that tobacco use is not a part of a healthy lifestyle,” Lesh said. “We believe that this policy can play a part in reducing youth tobacco use in our community, which will eventually save lives.” She

added that parents, officials and other community leaders can serve as positive role models for youth by choosing to live tobacco-free. Susan Pulaski, Community Health Coordinator for the Health Department of Northwest Michigan, said she is thrilled to see Alanson joining the ranks of communities and park systems that are formalizing their commitment to healthy, tobacco-free living for residents. “By adopting this policy, Alanson is affirming that tobacco use and secondhand

smoke don’t belong in park areas, where people go to improve their fitness and enjoy nature,” Pulaski said. She noted that Alanson’s policy will reinforce the recentlyadopted 24/7 tobacco-free school policies, and contribute to a tobacco-free environment throughout the community. Pulaski added that the Health Department is looking forward to helping other communities and organizations institute tobacco-free policies throughout Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet and Otsego

Counties. For more information about tobacco-free parks and beaches, contact Pulaski at (231) 347-5813. The Health Department of Northwest Michigan is mandated by the Michigan Public Health Code to promote wellness, prevent disease, provide quality healthcare, address health problems of vulnerable populations, and protect the environment for the residents and visitors of Antrim, Charlevoix, Emmet, and Otsego counties.

Italy next stop for Petoskey Kiwanis Travel Series The Kiwanis Club of Petoskey presents “ITALY: A Journey to Venice, Tuscany, Rome & the Amalfi Coast” with travelogue speaker Marlin Darrah as the next installment of the Travel and Adventure Series. The program will be held on Thursday, November 21at 7:00 p.m. at Petoskey High School Auditorium. Tickets are $8 at the door. Italy is a country with a staggering wealth of history, culture and natural beauty. This filmmaker’s journey showcases the eternal city of Rome, the incomparable gondola-laden waterways of Venice, the Renaissance treasure that is Florence, and finally the Amalfi coast, which is arguably the most beautiful in the world - with its lustrous villages and lemon groves clinging to side of mountains cascading down to the Mediterranean. Some of the places in this explora-

tion include: Lucca, a little Tuscan town protected by massively thick 16th-century walls, featuring some of Italy’s finest medieval and Renaissance architecture; The Douma which inspired the colonnaded tiers of the original structure of the campanile, the Leaning Tower of Pisa; Arch of Constantine and the great Coliseum; The Spanish Steps, on Piazza di Spagna; the Pantheon; St. Pe-

I remember reading somewhere that the true definition of a baby-boomer should not be defined by what year one was born, but rather by their ability to remember this day. I have to be honest, full disclosure, I remember that day vividly, but not because of John Kennedy. My oldest sister was having her first baby that day, the first nephew/grandson for us. I remember Mom picking all of us up at school where everyone was talking about Kennedy, but it sure wasn’t our top priority. John Kennedy was elected in one of the closest elections of that century in the popular vote and while he is remembered very fondly, he was not universally loved at the time; he definitely evoked strong emotions, one way or another. I remember hearing the fear that the country would be run from the Vatican. I’m not an expert, but I think that may have been an unnecessary concern. I have been overdosing on “Kennedy” Week: 11/20/13 television this month; there

has been almost constant programming and some of it is fascinating, especially revisiting history through the prism of time. I heard one man in Dallas interviewed prior to the assassination; he commented that although he didn’t like Kennedy, he was going to watch the motorcade because he liked Jackie. I’ve felt that way about a few of our presidents myself. I will say that, also with the benefit of hindsight, I have come to admire Jackie so much more over the years. She may have been a soft spoken woman, but she was intelligent and strong willed and her devotion to her children was admirable. The assassination itself was dreadful enough, but this was the first really memorable moment to be played out on television in such an immediate fashion. It didn’t end with Walter Cronkite, in his out of character moment, emotionally making the announcement of Kennedy’s death. Za-

pruder became a household name; Life Magazine came out with the frame by frame spread of his film and that famous photo of Oswald at the moment when he was shot was everywhere. Now we have become desensitized to watching drama unfold practically before our eyes; then, it was a shocking experience. I’ve heard it called the first step toward our loss of innocence as a country and I wouldn’t disagree with that assessment. We watched the funeral procession on television. I was six, so my memories are those of a child and thus, I related most to the Kennedy children. I remember Black Jack, the riderless horse, in the procession and the image of John-John saluting as the casket went by. I can see Caroline kneeling with her mother by the casket and I remember feeling so bad for both the children because their dad was killed right before their birthdays. Caroline and I are the same age and I couldn’t imagine what they were going through. I also vividly remember the pink suit with the blood stains, probably because the image was everywhere but also because even then, it was obvious she was making a statement. I’m not a firm believer in the butterfly effect, but one does have to wonder how much the course of our history as a country was shaped in those few moments in Dealey Plaza. Going back and rereading his inauguration address, it is striking how far we have come from, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Would Bobby still have run and been taken? Would the atmosphere have changed during the civil rights movement sufficiently to lessen the tensions and possibly have saved Dr. King? Would we have had Nixon and Watergate and the next assault on our National innocence? We’ll never know and what ifs benefit no one, but it’s only human to ponder the lost possibilities.

One quick note regarding last week’s column on hunting. I had mentioned thatif you bagged a deer that you didn’t need, you could have it processed at the Tannery Creek Market and they would donate it to the Manna Project. I got a call from David Meyer and he wanted me to let you know that the Sunrise Rotary Club in Petoskey also provides this service. You can take your deer to Jurek’s Meats, the Carp Lake General Store, the Walloon Lake General Store or Kruger’s Fish Market in Mackinaw City and they will process it and get it to the Manna Project. Remember that Manna can only accept deer from licensed processors. For more info on this project, you can call David at 347-7390, Andy Hayes at 582-6482 or Rod Niswander at 645-0145 Now we have some belated wishes to get out there. First, I hope that Wally Marszalec had a great day last Thursday and that Mary Ellen Hughes had wonderful birthday on Monday, November 18. More belated birthday wishes going out to Fallon Meyer from her grandparents; she also celebrated on the 18th and congratulations to Dick and Donna Seamon as they celebrated their anniversary this week. This week, Happy Birthday wishes on Thursday to Charlie Paige, Jr. and on Friday to Susan Horn Short, Ted Kelbel and the aforementioned nephew, Rick Coors – Happy 50th, Rick. On Saturday, we send Happy Birthday greetings to that author extraordinaire, Alison DeCamp and on Sunday to Sue Lechowicz and to Tom Wilson from his wife and all his friends at the Village of Hillside. Monday, we send our best birthday wishes along to Tony Keller, Heidi Radle Foxworthy and Mark Clare, on Tuesday to Jeff Sanderson and on Wednesday, November 27, to Kathy Vieau Coe, Kendall Stanley and Sue Richards. Finally, a very Happy Anniversary wish going to Ed and Judy Meyer on Thursday, the 21st.

The family of about six, including the parents, moved into their home at 455 ½ Arbor Street sometime in late August and began socializing and meeting neighbors in September. The four children can be seen daily, frolicking in the backyards in and around wood piles and up and down the big oak and maple trees in the neighborhood. However, it will soon be hard to spot them, due to winter setting in and the snow arriving. Even if they didn’t hibernate during the winter months, they would be hard to see, because they are pure white. They would blend in with the white snow. At first glance, they look a little spooky, white fur coats, fluffy white tails and bright pink eyes. Upon taking a very close look, you will see the

The children seem to be gaining weight, no surprise due to the abundance of fruit from the oak trees and they all scurry around as if they were in top physical shape.

It is not often that our area is under a Tornado Watch but that is what happened on Sunday afternoon as the predicted area of strong, sometimes violent storms raced across the midwest. Many areas, including ours, across the lower peninsula were hit with strong winds and very heavy rain. Power outages were widespread and are still being felt in the hardest hit areas in southern Michigan. We were spared the worst of the storms, but our thoughts are with those who suffered major damage. Things quieted down here by Tuesday morning. We have had periods of light snow but colder conditions have allowed the making of snow on the ski slopes.

Blackbird students host book drive for FreeCycle book Bin project Students from the Blackbird Elementary School collaborated with the Great Start Parent Coalition Leadership Council to host a book drive for the FreeCycle Book Bin project. With the help of the Blackbird Elementary students, more than 550 books were collected by the first and second grade classes during the two week-long book drive. The goal of the FreeCycle Book Bin project is to collect and distribute gently used books to children across Charlevoix, Emmet and northern Antrim counties. There currently are 39 bins within these communities found at locations where families and young children visit. Each colorful bin holds more than 50 books that range from infant board books to advanced chapter books. All books have a sticker on the cover that reads, “This Book is FREE – Great Start FreeCycle.” Parent Leadership Council members and Harbor Spring residents, Amy Lauer and Janey Thorpe, along with the help of Char-Em ISD AmeriCorps Literacy Coach, Kelly Trierweiler, took an active role in initiating the book drive as well as helping students collect and organize the donated books. The Great Start Parent Leadership Council works with parents and the greater community to strengthen families and promote optimal development of all young children. Students were sent home with a FreeCycle bag

asking families to use the bag to donate books. “Great Start is thrilled at the amount of books the students collected and these books are being FreeCycle’d out to children in our community immediately,” said Maureen Hollocker, Great Start Collaborative Director. Books donated by the Blackbird Elementary students will be distributed at the following Emmet County locations: Bayside Family Sports Center, Big Apple Bagels, Bradford’s Coin Laundry, Community Mental Health, Department of Human Services, M Salon, Petoskey Child

Health Associates, Petoskey District Library, Petoskey Pediatrics, Women’s Resource Center, Health Department of Northwest Michigan – Harbor Springs location, Alcona Health Center, Harbor Springs Library, Little Traverse Bay Band Health Clinic, Manna Food Pantry, Hornet Health Center and Northern Dental.

Harbor Light Community Newsweekly  9   Falconry Facts • There are approximately 5,000 licensed falconers in the U.S. • There are approximately 100 licensed falconers in Michigan. • A Red Tail Hawk doesnʼt get its red tail until it is one-year old, and goes through a molt every year. • Game Animals most commonly taken by Michigan Falconers are rabbit, squirrel, pheasant, and duck. • There are three classes of falconry permits: apprentice, general, and master. To become an apprentice falconer, an individual must: be at least 14 years of age, pass a written exam administered by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), obtain the sponsorship of a general or master falconer, and pass a facility and equipment inspection by a DNR conservation officer.

Brook Barney and Ayla recently showed off their cooperative hunting skills near Harbor Springs. As a Red Tail Hawk, Ayla prefers to hunt from high perches, and returns to Barney’s gloved hand at a whistle command. Barney said, like all falconers, sharing his love for birds of prey helps educate people on the importance of their role in the natural food chain.

Flight of the Hunter -CONTINUED from page 1.

Barney places a small band of bells around Ayla’s ankle before stepping into the woods. The bird blends so well with the trees above, he’s hard to see once the hunt begins. As they walk through the woods together, it’s easy to sense the historical connection between humans and birds of prey. Falconry is an art that’s approximately 4,000 years old. Lifting his gloved hand high, Barney signals to Ayla that it’s time to fly, and the bird moves swift and silent to a nearby branch. He pauses, flies to a higher spot, and repeats the process until he’s reached the last thick fingerlings in the treetops. Here, he sits, waiting. After a little while, Barney blows a high-pitched whistle, and Ayla swoops back to his glove-perch, where a treat awaits. After Ayla flies back toward the top branches, Barney walks into a field opening a good distance away. Crunching leaves give way to tall grasses. And then, he waits. “My belief is to engage the hawk in what it naturally does as much as possible, meaning hunting and flying your bird often,” Barney says, adding, “working with Red Tail is truly amazing. Itʼs not as difficult as one may think.” Barney said to become a falconer is a highly regulated process that requires several steps-- but the work isa learning experience that’s vital to being a good steward of birds of prey. “As an apprentice one would need to get licensed; a sponsor who needs to be of a general or master classification must be acquired. Next, build your facilities and purchase a few requirements, then finally, get inspected by a Conservation Officer.” Many falconer rehabilitate birds, but also, trapping in a common way to begin working with a bird. “The type of trap most commonly used is a Bal-Chatri style,” Barney said. He said apprentices get with their sponsors and head out to the ideal habitat. “As an apprentice, the only bird one can have are Red Tail Hawks or American Kestrels,” he explained. “Training starts immediately. First on the

list is a one foot hop to your glove for food, then progressing to several feet. Next is flying your bird attached to a creance (which is a light line attached to the bird and the falconer) outside. At this point you have spent countless hours with your bird. Hundreds of flights to your glove. Once you see the bond developing your ready to “free-fly” your hawk and start hunting as quickly as possible.” Barney said he will usually fly a passage hawk for two or three years, giving them as much success as possible in the field and getting them to a healthy reproductive age. “I release birds always in the Spring. Releasing birds in the Spring gives them an higher abundance of food before the colder months arrive.” It is estimated only 10-percent of birds like a Red Tail Hawk survive their first year in the wild. In captivity, the same birds can live upwards of 30 years. “Concerns for wild birds of prey populations are probably similar to most wild animals, in that land development takes away from their natural habitat,” Barney said. “I do see a high occurrence of electrocution for birds of prey. I also know the American Kestrel is declining, which the Peregrine Foundation is taking steps to help. I think Falconry and birds of prey displays help educate people and gives awareness to their valuable link in the food chain.” Likely to be kind to those who were watching Barney and Ayla hunt in the wet and increasingly windy weather, the falconer called his bird down to a pre-killed meal of whole squirrel. Though Ayla was no where in sight, the whistle promoted an echo of beating wings. Less than a minute later, he’d swooped down with a speed too fast to capture on camera, landing on Barney’s glove. The bird immediately went to work on devouring the entirety of his squirrel meal, bones and all. Watching up close was both unnerving and awe-striking. The feat of engineering that is a bird of prey makes it clear why getting to work with Ayla is what Barney calls a “true honor.”
