Wrap Up


City finally coming to end of multi-year water, sewer project

Holiday events get underway around the area

Mandated by state, city’s century-old infrastructure updated By Jessica Evans Harbor Light Newspaper

When Tom Richards sat down at his desk three years ago on the first day of his new job as Harbor Springs City Manager, a letter was waiting for him from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Water Resources division. The letter plainly stated the City of Harbor Springs was in violation of Michigan’s Safe Drinking Water Act. Because of this, a building permit ban was being placed upon the city to prohibit any construction from taking place in Harbor Springs or West Traverse Township until the problems were resolved and the city was in compliance with the act. “This was given to me on day one,” Richards said with a chuckle. “Though I have to say I wasn’t blindsided by it. Michigan had been working to increase rigorous inspections of city water systems across the state for the protection of residents, and we were one city whose system required such changes.” The two main violations that the DEQ cited as being out of compliance with the act had to do with inadequate pumping capacity of the city’s water source wells and also not having a distribution system to meet peak city water demands. Benchmark Engineering was contacted shortly after this to update a reliability study that would identify deficiencies in the water system and set about coming up with a plan to make the improvements. “Our first step was to work with Benchmark to determine the highest priorities for the city water system and develop a plan that would be acceptable to the DEQ,” Richards said. The water system in place had been built around the turn of the century, with much of it constructed for the newly built brick high school on the bluff. According to Bench-CONTINUED on page 9

Thanksgiving Greetings from

from your friends at the Harbor Light Newspaper

The Harbor Springs Christmas tree was set up downtown Monday, November 19. The 38 foot tree was donated by Petoskey residents Steve and Cheryl Hooley. The couple is doing some landscaping and said it made sense to donate the tree so it could be enjoyed for Christmas. The Hooleys lived in Harbor Springs for a few years before moving across the bay, and said they have always enjoyed attending the Christmas tree lighting. Evergreen boughs and colored lights adorn shops up and down Main Street, as businesses prepare for the holiday season. Local merchants will be competing for the best decorated storefront; this year’s theme is “Snow.” Winners will be announced during the tree lighting, set to take place this Saturday, November 24 at 5:30 p.m (see inside for related story).

Giving from the heart, giving locally Alternative Gift Fair supports area organizations through much needed donations By Kate Bassett Harbor Light Newspaper

“Anything that takes us out of the commercialization of the season and brings attention to the true meaning of this season is a step forward in understanding the goodness of our hearts and souls.”

While it’s something to strive for in every season, operating in a mode of abundance seems like the key to joyful holidays.

that will provide 300-pounds of food for the Harbor Springs Food Pantry.” Since its inception, the Alternative Gift Fair has raised well over $200,000. Last year alone, it raised some $40,000. It’s a day many in the community have come to consider their “holiday kick-off.” “Anything that takes us out of the commercialization of the season and brings attention to the true meaning of this season is a step forward in understanding the goodness of our hearts and souls,” said Jan Mancinelli, executive director of the Women’s Resource Center. “I was raised in a big city and I have always marveled at the bounty that comes with what a small community experience has to offer—knowing and caring for your neighbors, feeling there is a connectivity to things greater than oneself.” Part of the unique nature of the Alternative Gift Fair is the festive atmosphere it entails. Having all the nonprofits together in one room is a rare and wonderful chance for connection. “In addition to receiving many wonderful donations during the AGF Fair, we get the opportunity to talk with many people from the

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and local communities are gearing up to set our favorite small town traditions in motion.

Community Organizations Foundation awards more than $110,000 locally The Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation recently awarded $110,242 to local organizations through their fall competitive cycle. “This cycle we are able to help local organizations provide important services,” said Sara Ward, program officer,

“in addition to contributing to projects that will move our community forward.” “Collaboration is definitely a highlight of this cycle,” noted Ward. The Up North Trails Collaborative through LIAA will work to improve communities across the re-

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

Here’s a poem for this season by Tim Nolan, of Minnesota. Once we begin to be thankful for things, there are more and more things to be thankful for.

Thanksgiving Thanks for the Italian chestnuts—with their tough shells—the smooth chocolaty skin of them—thanks for the boiling water— itself a miracle and a mystery— thanks for the seasoned sauce pan and the old wooden spoon—and all the neglected instruments in the drawer— the garlic crusher—the bent paring knife— the apple slicer that creates six perfect wedges out of the crisp Haralson— thanks for the humming radio—thanks for the program on the radio about the guy who was a cross-dresser— but his wife forgave him—and he ended up almost dying from leukemia— (and you could tell his wife loved him entirely—it was in her deliberate voice)— thanks for the brined turkey—

gion by better promoting remarkable recreational trails; Beyond the Scoreboard is teaming up with the Women’s Resource Center and North Central Michigan College to bring a highly regarded speaker on building respect, character, and responsibility through youth sports; Getting Kids Outdoors is a collaborative effort that promotes unstructured outdoor play for children and will bring nature-based workshops to the community. According to Ward, “Collaboration is how these requests were funded, too.” The Community Foundation has funds which committee members allocate based on current community needs. Donor Advised Funds serve as a charitable checking account for individuals and families to contribute to nonprofit organizations in whatever way they choose. Through the Community Foundation, these Donor Advised Funds can participate in the grant cycle and recommend dollars to specific requests. In this cycle, more than half of the grant requests were funded by multiple funds. For example, the Community Free Clinic needs funding to provide medication to patients; this $5,000 request was fully funded by the Community Endowment, the Healthy Youth and Seniors Field of Interest Fund, the Baiardi Family Foundation Fund, the Buzzelli Family

Charitable Fund, and the David H. Irish Charitable Fund. “This joint effort epitomizes the purpose of the Community Foundation,” explained David Jones, executive director of the Community Foundation, “connecting donors to community needs in order to improve the quality of life here in Emmet County. We’re proud to be a partner in this community.” To view the complete list of recent grant awards, learn more about applying, or read about the impact of past grants, visit or call (231) 348-5820.

Char-Em United Way Helps Families Cover Prescription Costs Char-Em United Way and FamilyWize announced that their partnership has saved the people living and working in Charlevoix and Emmet Counties more than $200,000 on everyday prescription costs. The free FamilyWize drug discount card is distributed by Char-Em United Way. “No one should be forced to choose between paying for food, rent or medicine because of the high cost of pre-

scriptions. That’s why we’ve partnered with FamilyWize to distribute free prescription discount cards to everyone in Charlevoix and Emmet Counties”, said Lisa Luebke of Char-Em United Way. Distributed through United Way, the FamilyWize card lowers the cost of medicine by an average of 35-percent or more for people without insurance or who take medications not covered by their plan.

community. By explaining our mission, talking about our volunteers and the many things they do, and sharing how we meet the needs of our families, we spread the word to others and hopefully encourage them to get involved with our pantry or another local organization,” Pfeifer said. Connecting with area nonprofits can mean much more than making financial donations. Many organizations have added to their volunteer list following the fair, and encourage shoppers to remember gifts of time can

be equally important. To this end, the children’s area will give the youngest shoppers an opportunity to experience such giving, and will have “gifts of time” cards available to create and decorate. Once again, Julienne Tomatoes will be serving lunches for shoppers, with proceeds going back into the community. Rounding out the traditional alternative gifts-which can be personalized by calligraphers during the event-- a handful of locallybased nonprofits with global outreach will also be at the event, selling hand-crafted

goods to support missions like the Harbor Springs-based SAME (South African Medical Expedition). In the end, long-time Alternative Gift Fair Participant Jan Mancinelli said the spirit of the day, as well as the tremendous benefits it brings local organizations, makes it a must on the holiday calendar. “The Gift Fair brings together many community organizations who provide critical services in the community. I always like the feeling that we are together to provide members of the community a close up look of the all we

do to provide a safety net for those who need a hand up. We all compete for community dollars, and it is heartwarming to be together, united in a cause that helps us all.” The Alternative Gift Fair will take place on Saturday, December 1 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the United Methodist Church in Petoskey.

ering the cost of medication enables more people to get the medicine they need and increases patient adherence. Taking medication as prescribed reduces illness, complications, disease progression, and related healthcare costs. These reduced costs to the patient, the family, the employer and the community are far greater than the cost of the medicine. These cards can be used by everyone in the community, not just people without insurance. They can even be used by people with health benefits, including Medicaid or Medicare. It’s easy. It’s just like a coupon you can keep using every time you need to fill a prescription. All you have to do is present a FamilyWize card at a local pharmacy to get the savings. 1,000 United Ways in all 50 states have helped to save $420 million on prescriptions in their communities as of October, 2012. “The FamilyWize card provides immediate savings on prescription medicines with no paperwork or forms to fill

out,” said Dan Barnes, Cochair of The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership. FamilyWize cards can be obtained from the Department of Human Services, Friendship Centers, Community Free Clinic, Petoskey and Charlevoix Public Libraries, Manna Food Project, K-Mart Pharmacies or by calling United Way, (231) 487-1006. People with internet access can go to or to to print a card, look up drug prices and obtain a list of participating pharmacies. Local businesses and employers can also get cards to give to their employees. Locally, the FamilyWize prescription drug discount cards are accepted at Kmart, Rite Aid, Meijer, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Huff’s, Glen’s, and Kelbel Pharmacies, East Jordan Family Pharmacy, Indian River Village Pharmacy, Central Drug Store, McLarenNorthern Michigan Pharmacy, and R and R Prescription Services. They have no usage or age limits.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 In this week of Thanksgiving, with so much to be thankful for, hopefully the football, food and thoughts of Friday sales won’t overwhelm the reason for the holiday I know that I have to sometimes remind myself how lucky I am and how grateful I should be. I am grateful in this time of economic uncertainty that I have not one, but two jobs that I actually enjoy. Too many people don’t have that right now. I am thankful that I have a roof over my head; it may not be the Taj Mahal, but it keeps me warm and dry and it meets my needs. Do I wish I had the money to make all the author of improvements that I would like to? Absolutely. But am I satisfied in the meantime with what I have? You betcha. And I am thankful that I don’t have to go to bed hungry; too many people around this world do. I am grateful that I grew up when and where I did. I know that it often sounds like many of us idealize the experiences of our youth, but I truly don’t think the memories are being tinted by the rose colored glasses that I am often accused of wearing. It was that good. We had fewer rules, more freedom and more options. We had many more beaches to visit and we could camp on most of them without anyone caring. Riding bikes and skiing didn’t require helmets and if we were late coming home, it wasn’t that big of deal. Houses weren’t locked, keys were always kept in the car and for the most part, I suffered no ill from talking to and trusting strangers. I understand that time marches on and that change is inevitable and I am not saying we didn’t have problems or that some of the changes mentioned above weren’t made for a reason. I’m just

glad my time was before they took place. For example, we had our bullies; I spent most of my senior year literally in my locker (lockers were bigger and I was smaller.) The biggest difference is that the bullying had to be done in person; there no sneaking around sending nasty text messages or leaving snide comments on facebook. If we did get in trouble, unless it was egregious, the police were far more likely to take you home and let your parents deal with you than do anything official. I am thankful for the teachers along the way who helped shape who we have become and taught us to think for ourselves. If not for Ann Wilderom, Betty Jezisek, and Michael Gow, I’m not certain I ever would have started writing. Dorothy Heminger, Leroy Garber, Ed Kelbel, Tom McDonald, Joe Flynn, Joe Jezisek, Edith Irish, Bob Snideman, Glenn Bonkosky, Jim Likins, Ed Beer, Jim Zylstra, Rick Rossi, Nancy Brookfield Paige, Noreen Kolinski, Paul Pollack, Ray Terpening, Judy and Ethan Strouf, Kay Gremel, Charlie Paige, Marsha Barber, Doug White, Irene Morrison, Charlie Dickinson; these are just some of the names that come to my mind when I think of people that have impacted my life, most of them in a positive way. I am grateful that my time in school was spent with George Menzi at the helm; he understood that some of us didn’t fit into a cookie cutter mold and encouraged our individuality. I am grateful for the lifelong friends that growing up in Harbor Springs afforded me. There is something about someone who has always been there with you and who will always be there for you. I am privileged to have friends that I literally cannot

remember not knowing and I am thankful for those who are no longer with us because we at least had the honor of knowing them. I am thankful for the new friends that have come into my life along the way, each one bringing their own enrichment. Jobs along the way may not have always lasted, but so often the friendships made at those jobs have and for all those friends, I am grateful. I may not always express it to them, but I am thankful for my family. Sibling issues are not always easy, but when push comes to shove, it’s nice to know they are there. I don’t have children of my own and I am grateful for my many nephews and nieces (and the greats and great-greats) for giving me the opportunity to do some surrogate parenting over the years and for filling my life with joy (and sometimes for teaching me patience.) I truly appreciate the values and habits that my parents instilled in me; they offered unconditional love, they taught me to work hard for what I want and to always try to be kind. I’m thankful that I married into a loving and caring family; the evil mother-in-law doesn’t exist in my personal experience. I am thankful that I have had the privilege of knowing so many of the wonderful families in this area that offered such grand examples of how to live life. If I start naming names, I know I will miss many people, but I know that we had so many sterling examples to emulate; people who married for life, loved their families more than anything, worked hard and provided the that they possibly could and enjoyed the lives that they had. I’m even grateful for those


men who, in the words of a country song, done me wrong along the way. (You know who you are.) If I hadn’t learned the lessons that I had over the years, who knows if I would have been in a place, literally or figuratively, to meet my husband, for whom I thank God every day. And I thank my husband for talking this former cat lady into a drooly dog with a smashed-in face; now I can’t imagine my life without my boxer babies. So in between the food and the football and the sales, take a moment to look around and appreciate everything that you have. Even facing a future without Twinkies, life is good and as we appreciate our blessings, hopefully we can share with those who may not be as lucky. And as we mention couples who offer much to emulate, a very Happy Anniversary this week to Ed and Judy Meyer, celebrating forty-eight years together. Congratulations and may you celebrate many more.

Happy Thanksgiving birthdays to Susan Horn Short, Ted Kelbel and Rick Coors. On Friday, November 23, Happy Birthday to Alison DeCamp, Janna Marquardt Reinsmith and especially to Marilyn White, who is celebrating her 80th at her new home in Independence Village in Petoskey.

Grant to assist local growers in providing school lunches A new grant will make it easier for local growers to get their fruits and vegetables on to the school trays of thousands of students in northern Michigan—helping local agriculture while teaching kids the importance of local food and healthy eating habits. The USDA awarded the Michigan Land Use Institute a two-year, $100,000 grant for expanded education efforts and to help local growers scale-up their operations and infrastructure to make it easier for them to meet school needs. The project, “Scaling Up: Healthy Kids & Thriving Farms,” expands on MLUI’s existing efforts to promote local food in school cafeterias. “Schools, farmers, local food distribution company

Cherry Capital Foods, the economic development community—they all want to see farm to school programs grow here,” said Diane Conners, senior policy specialist in Food & Farming at MLUI. “What we needed were small but strategic investments in infrastructure, education that turns kids on to eating healthy local food, teacher involvement and school marketing. The National Farm to School grant fills these crucial gaps.” The grant allows MLUI to partner with eight local districts and area farmers to invest in cold storage and processing equipment to scale up local food procurement by the schools. It also allows MLUI to expand the cafeteria tastings, local food

curriculum in classrooms, and the school garden activities that it currently operates in six schools as the regional site of the national FoodCorps program. Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District is a key partner in the project, with plans to develop farm to school support for teachers. Other project partners include Michigan State University Extension and other members of the Northwest Michigan Food & Farming Network. Participating districts are: Traverse City Area Public Schools, Benzie County Central Schools, FrankfortElberta Area Public Schools, Suttons Bay Public Schools, Northport Public School, Leland Public School, Glen

Lake Community Schools and Central Lake Public Schools. Food service directors have identified a need for washed, dried and bagged salad greens and cut vegetables, but the many smaller farms in the region that typically grow vegetables—as well as some larger farmers—don’t have the capacity or infrastructure to meet the needs of the region’s schools. The grant will help secure new, centrally located equipment for commercial-scale vegetable washing and preparation, making it possible and more cost-effective for growers to scale up vegetable production to benefit schools. The MLUI grant is one of 68 awarded by the USDA to organizations in 37 states and

Washington, D.C., to connect schools with local agricultural producers. These are the first USDA Farm to School grants, designed to help schools respond to the growing demand for locally sourced foods and to increase opportunities for producers and food businesses. “When schools buy food from nearby producers, their purchasing power helps create local jobs and economic benefits, particularly in rural agricultural communities,” said USDA Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan. “Evidence also suggests that when kids understand more about where food comes from and how it’s produced, they are more likely to make healthy eating choices.”

Caribou Summer at Carnegie Nov. 26 The Friends @ the Carnegie, will welcome Jim and Kathy Bricker, long time naturalists and hikers, and their live narration and video program Caribou Summer: Secrets of the Tundra, on Monday, November 26, 7:00 pm in the Carnegie Building at 451 E.

Middle School Basketball 7th Grade Wednesday, November 14 vs. Kalkaska Harbor Springs 42, Kalkaska 23 Nick Bonter had a double, scoring 10 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. Cole Ketterer led the team in scoring with 11 points. Chris Erxleben had eight, followed by Joe Claramunt and Drew Lafolla both with six. Three players had double digit rebounds, Bonter had 13, Claramunt and Lafolla each had 12. Coach’s comments: 7th grade basketball coach Brad Reed said, “The team played really energized basketball and their hustle is evident when looking at our number of rebounds. Before the game we put up a goal of not being out rebounded and the team really came through on that goal. Across the board our team played well; we had really good ball movement and moved well without the ball. We limited our number of turnovers and got good clean looks at the basket. It was a great team effort.” The next game is on Monday, November 26 at home against Charlevoix. 8th Grade Wednesday, November 14 vs. Kalkaska Harbor Springs 40, Kalkaska 29 Rams were paced by Jack Vandermus with 14 points.

Health Department offering flu shots and immunizations at Emmet County office With flu season in full swing, and with vaccine-preventable diseases still making headlines, the Health Department of Northwest Michigan is holding a special Flu Shot and Immunization Clinic on November 26 at its Emmet County facility in the J.R. Watson Community Resource Center, located at 3434 M-119, in Harbor Springs. Appointments are available between 8 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. on that date, and walk-ins are welcome. “The single best way to prevent getting the flu is to get vaccinated every year,” said Joshua Meyerson, M.D., Medical Director for the Health Department of Northwest Michigan. “That’s why the Health Department offers these immunization clinics throughout the four-county health district.” Pat Fralick, the Health Department’s Director of Family and Community Health, says

Labor Day Weekend Sale Everything fun for your kitchen

the charge for a flu vaccine is $25, and charges for additional vaccines vary. “We can also bill Medicare, Medicaid, and several private health insurance companies for immunizations,” Fralick added, noting that the Health Department does not turn away anyone age 18 or younger who is uninsured and unable to pay for immunizations required for school. Anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. While walk-ins are welcome, Fralick recommends making an appointment. “We do quite a lot of preparation to make sure people can get in and out as quickly as possible,” she said. “When we know how many are coming, we can be sure we have enough vaccine on hand and have adequate nursing staff. We can also identify any other vaccines individuals may need by checking the Michigan Care Improvement Registry in advance, and we can administer them during that same appointment.” Influenza viruses are spread when someone who is sick with the flu coughs, sneezes

or speaks, releasing viruses into the air for other people to breathe. When these viruses enter the nose, throat, or lungs, they begin to multiply, causing disease. The viruses can also be spread when a person touches a surface with flu viruses on it and then touches his or her nose or mouth. 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. For more information or to schedule an appointment during the Flu Shot and Immunization Clinic on November 26, call (800) 432-4121.
