Harbor Springs City Council reviews audit; progress on area trailways

Harbor Springs Road construction updates: work continues in area

By Danielle McIntosh Harbor Light Newspaper

Harbor Springs city administrators were complimented for a job well done regarding last year’s finances during City Council’s meeting Monday, October 1. A motion was made to receive and file the 2011 auditors report, which means the audit was accepted and can now be passed along to those who request fiscal information. Ken Talsma, CPA with the firm Anderson and Tackman, explained there were no issues regarding the audit at Monday’s meeting. “Harbor Springs seems to have overall financial health and is weathering the economy with stable finances,” he said. Also during the meeting, Council adopted proposed Ordinance 384, which was suggested by the Planning Commission in an effort to reduce problems for new or expanding businesses to meet off-street parking regulations (see official ordinance language on page 5). The new ordinance reduces off street parking requirements, with the hope it is now easier for new businesses to come into town. “It is a step in the right direction,” said Mayor Al Dika.

Trail construction updates A trail update was given by HARBOR Inc. director, Rachel Smolinski. The Little Traverse Wheelway connector trail in Kosequat Park is paved and awaiting signage. Lane closures on M-119 will continue through the end of November due to construction on the portion of the Little Traverse Wheelway near the Wequetonsing Golf Course. The Hoyt Road Trail, which was slightly short of needed funds heading into construction, has continually run into unforeseen expenses, Smolinski noted. The project is scheduled for completion in the next few weeks. HARBOR Inc. continues to seek donations to cover additional costs. Hoyt Road’s trail was built in partnership with the Safe Routes to School program. Signs and fencing will be place on the trail prior to snowfall to discourage snowmobiles from riding over it throughout the winter months. In other news, Council member Cecelia Johnston expressed con-CONTINUED on page 2.

‘...Our heritage to be able to create tools.’

Local man makes bows and arrows: reconnecting to simpler time By Graham Gettel Harbor Light Newspaper

For some folks, the upcoming hunting season is a chance to stock up on the latest and greatest gadgets. For others, like local bow maker John Riggs, the act is more of a sacred reconnection to simpler time, and serves as an opportunity to honor the most basic needs of survival. “I think it’s our heritage and our legacy as humans to be able to create tools,” Riggs as he sat outside Thorne Swift Nature Preserve, the West Traverse Township-funded park he manages, this past summer. Riggs has been making bows and arrows all his life, learning the trade based on personal research, combined with a lot of trial and error. He said his first foray into this primitive skill came after reading Jim Hamm’s“Bows and Arrows of the Native Americans.” “I started understanding the engineering and the mechanics of bows,” Riggs recalled. From the book, Riggs gained a greater understanding of different types of wood and their ranging physical characteristics. He said knowing that bows are “basically springs” and discovering various materials to create such a tool, was a key part of the discovery process. More than an artistic expression, Riggs said his drive to create naturally-made bows stems from the importance he places on resourcefulness and survival skills. After his first year of college, Riggs traveled into the wild of Roosevelt National forest in Colorado to test his nature-related abilities. “I learned how bad I was at primitive skills,” Riggs joked. While Riggs survived the enlightening endeavor, he lost nearly 35 pounds-- down to just 145 pounds-due to an inability to hunt with much success or gather his own food.

Fall has brought more than just orange leaves in Harbor Springs. It also brings a maze of orange cones and road blocks. City Manager Tom Richards provided the following in road construction updates, noting most projects are expected to be completed by October 20. Coming into downtown Harbor Springs along Main Street from the east, long stretches of one lane traffic closures are due to Michigan Department of Transportation work. This project, called “mill and fill,” is scheduled to be complete around October 15-16. In City of Harbor Springs projects, East Bluff Drive (and Oak Street) is 80-percent complete and on schedule for completion by October 20. Harrison Street (Summit to Lake) has been paved and restoration has been completed. Snyder Street (State to Spring) is now 20-percent complete, and should also see a October 20 completion date. Water Main work continues on Ann Street (Bluff to Lake). Final completion is expected by October 20. Roadblocks on Third Street may continue to create a detour, but the water main work on (Spring to State Streets) is now finished, with curbs to be installed this week. The completion date is still set for October 20. Paving on Arbor Street (Lake Rd. to Kiwanis Park) started this week.

Efforts continue to bring broadband Internet service to entire area By Danielle McIntosh Harbor Light Newspaper

Expansion of reliable, affordable high speed Internet in the greater Harbor Springs area is currently in the works. HARBOR Inc. Broadband Team, a subcommittee of the non-profit organization Harbor Area Board of Regional Resources, has been working for the last six years to bring Internet service to those that are currently lacking service (or those who can only access dial-up service). The committee is comprised of stakeholders representing local jurisdictions/municipalities, as well as area leading employers such as -CONTINUED on page 2.

Letters to the Editor Sees nothing wrong with Harbor Downtown coffee shop will Springs the way it is... To The Editor: an ice skating rink (in July), be missed Regarding the “improve- outside dining area (aren’t we To the Editor: As the Harbor Springs community comes together to decide on the future plan for downtown, we would like to express our heartfelt thank you to Darrell and Kathi Lavender for providing a place to truly experience a sense of community. Over the years at the Woolly Bugger, they have introduced us to many new friends. We will sorely miss the morning camaraderie shared over a cup of coffee, but the friendships we’ve made with the two of them and the wonderful people of Harbor Springs will last for many more years to come. Craig and Susan Corriveau

Start talking about what we do have here... To the Editor: Your coverage of the Community’s efforts to fashion a cohesive plan for the future of Harbor Springs was well done as were your comments on the Front Street Writers program in Traverse City. The points you made in the Editors Corner could well be transferred to our schools in Harbor Springs. Good for you! What the September 26th edition seems to have missed, with Community development in mind,was the grand success of the Taste of Harbor Springs. Although the event was represented by 2 pictures, no mention was made of the 400 folks who attended nor the great restaurants, fine stores and volunteers who came together to make it a Community event. Let us all start talking about what we do have in Harbor Springs rather than what we do not. Respectfully, Jim Hyslop Wequetonsing & Louisville, Ky.

ment” of Harbor Springs, closing Spring Street between the Bank and Graham Real Estate. . . which has sidewalks on both sides . . .to make Main Street “feel” more connected to the waterfront is unrealistic. There are eight public parking spaces on that centrally located street, we have no need for a fountain (always someone’s knee jerk response to what we are lacking) when there is one on the merchants walkway three buildings away; and, most importantly, three businesses access their city mandated private parking spaces from that street … the one the professional city planning firm is advocating closing to make town less confusing. And the thought of losing parking spaces on our centrally located waterfront so that we have more room for benches, band shells, fountains, gathering spaces, statues and seagulls is ludicrous. We will all enjoy that barren windswept landscape in January as we trudge to the Pier/Bar Harbor/ New York from the three-story concrete parking garage behind Burley Insurance, cursing/slipping/ falling/breaking hips. Cars are not mushrooms, they contain people who are hopefully inside a Harbor Springs business spending money. Parking garages are concrete bunkers, lighted 24/7 housing a necessary elevator. Ours will mostly be an empty shell providing shelter for cats, bats, seagulls and any homeless we have. They also make great public toilets …without the need for plumbing. To quote one of my clients “If you make it too hard for me, I’ll just go into Petoskey. I can park at the door at Teddy’s or The Side Door.” If someone absolutely feels the need for benches, band shells, fountains, gathering spaces and statues, why not erect the same in mostly empty Zorn Park. As to the waterfront tennis courts, I have heard proposals for a carousel (very popular w/ the over 6 crowd … and what about liability), the ubiquitous benches and fountain,

really just extending Dudley’s Deck onto public property. . . where’s the kitchen?) outside movies (has to be dark, so why would you need to be on the waterfront?), and the band shell (wouldn’t that block your view?) What has become apparent is that no one can think of anything better to put in that space. The truth is that the courts are utilized quite a bit . . . by all ages and both sexes, by families, adults and most importantly teenagers. Can anyone name another activity that satisfies so many? Do you really want to remove another activity available to the teens in this town? It’s silly to say that the wire screen fence blocks the view of the water and then propose an earthen berm, birch trees and a stone arch. We are an active community and we want more to do, not less. I suggest a putting green to the east of the Harbormaster building. Give people a reason to come into town. Watching anyone play tennis or golf is infinitely more interesting than not feeding the ducks. I appreciate that people are trying to improve Harbor Springs. I just don’t think there is anything wrong with it. Apparently neither do the thousands of residents/ visitors thronging our streets, parking on our waterfront and patronizing our businesses. I am hard pressed to understand how the addition of a band shell, carousel, fountain, statue or larger green space is going to improve business in February for the merchants. Wendy Reeve

City Council... -CONTINUED from page 1. cern regarding bikes on Main Street sidewalks during busy summer months. The city discussed potential signage encouraging people to “walk your bike” may be appropriate, but agreed banning bikes from sidewalks is not a safe option, as it would push all pedalers into the road. Council will explore signage or sidewalk stencil options. Council also discussed placing a drinking fountain in front of the American Legion building near the State and Third Streets intersection. Councilman John Cupps said the Legion will pay for the cost of installation, if the city pays for the fountain with the average near $1,600. City manager, Tom Richards, said because of current water main projects on Third Street, plumbing is now in place that will allow the city the option to place a fountain there. Cupps said he will bring design options to the table soon. In response to a suggestion from the city manager to consider membership of the Tree City program, a Tree Advisory committee will be formed with leadership from council representatives Alan Hegedus and Cecelia Johnston. The committee will be

A decision made by consensus to change the city’s energy contractors to Efficiency United will lessen the load for city administrators. Efficiency United regulates area energy decisions according to the state’s Energy Optimization Requirements but reduces management by city employees. As part of the City Manager’s report, fall hours will be extended at Blackbird Museum to accommodate a growth in fall tourism. The Sk8 Park in Harbor Springs will again host their Community Halloween Trunk or Treat, thanks to approval by council. A letter has been sent out to city water customers explaining the increase in water rates and the water reliability projects that have been high profile this year.

The Zoning Board of appeals will meet October 10, the Downtown Development Authority will meet October 17, The Harbor Commission will meet October 17 and the Planning Commission will meet October 18.

McLaren Northern Michigan and North Central Michigan College. The group drafted a plan for a variety of service-expansion projects like creating hotspots and hosting classes to educate the community regarding technology. A broadband survey for residents was recently conducted, and the 900 respondents will serve as a reference point in attracting potential service providers to the area. “However if this does not happen, HARBOR Inc. will bring in the infrastructure,” noted HARBOR Inc. executive director, Rachel Smolinski. She went on to say the organization can pursue grant funding with the information collected as a result of the broadband survey. Smolinski’s next project is to map out the service area of the residents who responded to surveys. Down the road, a community forum will be held to discuss ideas and educate the public on what has been done to address high speed internet issues. “This is a complex problem and we have to be collaborative to see the results we want,” Smolinski said.

An ordinance to amend Chapter 50 of Title V of the Code of the City of Harbor Springs, by amending Section 50.301(4)(a) and 50.301(4)(b) therein. WHEREAS, the Planning Commission has studied the off-street parking requirements of Article 18 of the Zoning Code of the City of Harbor Springs, as such requirements pertain to the Central Business District and other zoning districts within the City; and, WHEREAS, the Planning Commission engaged Williams & Works, of Grand Rapids, Michigan to study the parking requirements, and the available parking within the Central Business District and other zoning districts within the City; and, WHEREAS, Williams & Works prepared a study dated April 16, 2012, and determined that there is presently adequate public and private off-street parking available to meet the reasonable parking requirements for the commercial uses within the Central Business District; and, WHEREAS, Williams & Works determined that due to shared parking arrangements in the City, the number of required parking spaces in the Central Business District could be reduced by forty percent (40%) without creating a parking problem, and adequately meet parking demand; and, WHEREAS, Williams & Works has studied and reported that uses within adjacent zoning districts, such as the Waterfront and General Business Districts and other business districts within the City are not susceptible to the shared parking concepts because these uses require constant parking in both daytime and nighttime hours, and reductions in the parking requirements for these districts is inappropriate; and, WHEREAS, the Planning Commission has determined, after further study and consideration of parking demand and supply, that a twenty-five percent (25%) reduction of the off-street parking requirement in the Central Business District for new commercial construction, and a fifty percent (50%) reduction of the off-street parking requirement for increases in the intensity of commercial uses within existing buildings would provide adequate parking supply for such increased uses; and, WHEREAS, the Planning Commission has determined, after further study and consideration of the parking demand and supply, that the parking requirement for residential uses within the Central Business District should remain unchanged, because the parking demand created by such uses is not subject to the shared parking reduction concept, because residential demand for parking is constant during both daytime and nighttime hours; and, WHEREAS, the Planning Commission has reviewed and accepts the study prepared by Williams and Works and has determined that it would be appropriate to modify the Zoning Code of the City of Harbor Springs, in the manner set forth in this Ordinance, finding that adoption of such provisions will promote economic development within the Central Business District and enhance employment opportunities within the City; and, WHEREAS, the Planning Commission conducted a public hearing on August 16, 2012, on the proposed amendment to the Harbor Springs Zoning Code, including that which is contained in this Ordinance; and, WHEREAS, after said public hearing, on August 16, 2012, the Harbor Springs Planning Commission recommended the adoption of the zoning provisions contained in this Ordinance; and,

(4) Off Street Parking Requirements. It shall be the duty of both the owner and occupant of any premises to provide off street parking space as required in this Section. Whenever off street parking spaces are required, the off street parking spaces shall be laid out, approved, constructed and maintained in accordance with the standards and regulations specified in this Section and in Article 18 of this Chapter. (a) Whenever a use or an activity requiring off street parking is created through new construction, increased floor area, intensity of activity or number of boat berthing slips, or by structural alteration, or by adding to the cubic content of a building or increasing the intensity of activity in some other manner, off street parking spaces shall be provided and maintained as required in Article 18 for such new construction or change, except as provided hereinafter, and further provided, in the Central Business District (CBD) only, the number of off– street parking spaces for new construction or additions to existing buildings for commercial uses only shall be seventy-five percent (75%) of the requirement specified in Article 18 of this Chapter for the specific use proposed, but for new construction or additions to existing buildings for residential uses in the CBD, on-site, off-street parking must be provided in accordance with the requirements for single family residential dwelling units provided in Article 18 of this Chapter, provided for residential dwelling units containing less than 900 square feet, only 1 parking space need be provided. (b) Existing buildings, as defined in Section 50.201(21), may be utilized to their capacity through structural alteration or rebuilding (excluding basements and additions) for the permitted uses occupying such building on the effective date of the Ordinance adopting the Harbor Springs Zoning Code of 1990 (the “Effective Date”), and shall be exempt from providing off-street parking spaces. Uses requiring an equal or lesser number of parking spaces may be substituted for the principal use of record on the Effective Date, without providing off-street parking spaces. When the basements thereof are converted to uses requiring parking spaces, or when uses requiring more spaces than the use of record on the Effective Date are substituted, then off-street parking spaces for the addition or the change difference shall be provided and irrevocably reserved and recorded in accordance with the standards of Article 18 of this Chapter, provided, in the Central Business District (CBD) only, the number of off–street parking spaces for the change difference shall be fifty percent (50%) of the requirement specified in Article 18 of this Chapter for the specific use proposed, but such off-street spaces shall otherwise be reserved as provided in Section 50.301(4)(c) and in accordance with Article 18 of this Chapter. The foregoing notwithstanding, if an existing building is converted from a commercial use to a residential use, on-site, off-street parking must be provided in accordance with the requirements for single family residential dwelling units provided in Article 18 of this Chapter, provided for residential dwelling units containing less than 900 square feet, only 1 parking space need be provided. Section 2 Except as modified above, the rest and remainder of Section 50.301(4) is ratified and confirmed as adopted. Section 3 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 4

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842 Probably due in no small part to the tougher drunk driving laws, we have seen many of our local “watering holes” morph into some very fine restaurants. Beginning with the Pier way back in the early seventies, places where you would go to drink and never consider eating anything have become some of our finest eateries. Instead of bars that offer food, they are now restaurants that offer drinks. Bar Harbor is a perfect example. When I first started going there, when the McKinneys still owned it, the only thing that I recall eating is that wonderful pickled bologna that was kept in a big jar on the bar. There were times when that bologna was preferable to a fine steak. I whined about it so much when it was gone that the new owner, Jeff Kobierzynski, brought me

my own huge jar and told me to basically shut up about it. That didn’t work, by the way. When the Crow’s Nest was the Crow Bar, it wasn’t quite the dining establishment that it is now. They had food, but I knew many more people who went there to drink than to eat. We went to Legs Inn for dinner a couple times this summer, always had a substantial wait for a table and the young lady told us that if you got there after six, you would usually have to wait. Back in the day, so to speak, there would have been a couple regulars at the bar and some kids playing pool at that time; it never started to get busy until well after nine and no one was there for the food. In fact, we used to wager on the age of the hot dogs going round and round on their little ferris wheel on the bar. The transformation at the

Moose Jaw Junction, a.k.a. the Larks Lake Bar, has been nothing short of phenomenal. I really liked Deacon (I have no idea what his real name was,) but I would never have considered eating there (or using the bathroom unless it was a complete necessity) when he owned the place. Now people travel for miles to eat there and it is a great family atmosphere. I remember being at the Douglas Lake Bar on a Sunday after noon for one of their jam sessions, I was in the restroom and I heard a noise. I looked around and there were some adorable little toads sitting in the corner. Once Hoot Rudolph transformed it into The Douglas Lake Steakhouse, I doubt that you would have found the wildlife inside any longer. Another really major redo was the Side Door Saloon. I

The Waugoshance Lighthouse was constructed in 1851, marking the entrance of the Straits of Mackinac and the dangerous shoals in the area. Abandoned by the United States Lighthouse Board in 1912, Waugoshance has stood up against the harsh elements of Lake Michigan for 161 years warning mariners of the dangerous shoal upon which she sits. Every structure has an expiration date if it is not given some TLC; the time has now come for this historic structure to receive the help of the Great Lakes Community that she has served for so many years. Chris West, President of the Waugoshance Lighthouse Preservation Society said, “I’m excited we are finally moving forward towards restoring this piece of history. For nearly 12 years we’ve been working towards this goal. A donation of any amount will help towards our efforts of obtaining this historical structures report. Waugoshance has served the maritime community for over a century and a half, and it is time for us to give back to this historic structure.” The Waugoshance Lighthouse Preservation Society (WLPS) has the opportunity to obtain a two for one match from the Michigan Lighthouse Assistance Program in order to fund the completion of a Historic Structure Report. We need to submit this report to several federal entities before any renovation work can

proximity to the courthouse as I knew many people who regularly went to the courthouse to pay fines or to meet with someone, then made the short trek across the street. One memory sticks with me, they used to serve drinks in Schooner glasses, more like a bowl than a glass. More than some of the others, today the City Park manages to walk the fine line of restaurant during the day but remaining a popular night spot after dark. I’ll close with the Mitchell Street Pub. Karmol’s was a little hole in the wall that made Leo’s (one of the remaining holdouts) look classy in comparison. The Pub is still a lounge, so to speak, but a much nicer place than it ever was then and their food business has to at least come close to matching the bar sales; they always seem to be busy.

remember thinking when I walked in one day and was seated by a hostess that this was NOT the Side Door that I knew and loved. Those wonderful burgers (and Rosetta Schlappi, my favorite waitress who would chop the big onion slabs for me,) Chuck and Bill behind the bar and Jiffy Pop popcorn never tasted as good anywhere else. The Side Door that I knew was a biker bar and the spot where the baseball, softball and basketball league teams in Petoskey went after the games to replay the games over a beer. I still haven’t adjusted to the new family atmosphere. Park Garden, which was known primarily for the bar for many years, has become the very nice City Park Grill.

The total $30,000, funded by our supporters (you!) and the State, will allow us to pay for the report and then begin renovation on this historic Lake Michigan lighthouse. The deadline for the preservation society to raise these funds is October 12th. The WLPS has set up an easy place to donate to the cause through, an internationally known site that is set up to help organizations like the WLPS.

Athletic Directors Note

With help from the Ram’s Booster Club and a handful of community volunteers, the new trophy cases at Harbor Springs High School were filled. The cases, which span 15 feet from the floor, now house generations of trophies celebrating athletic accomplishments. The trophies were previously in storage, hiding a rich history of Rams success. The new trophy cases span the wall across from the athletic director’s office to the locker room hallway and replace three GIFT CERTIFICATES for any denomina small cases previously made by the wood shop class. The locker room remodeling project at the high school has an anticipated completion date of October 25. For now gym classes can be moved to the Middle School and after-school athletic events are asked to use the restrooms for changing. “It has been an inconvenience, but will be well worth the wait,” Athletic Director, Dave Iafolla, said. Once the locker rooms are completed, the pool will be opened. The pool is scheduled to open October 26 to the public.

He Hunter (Photo courtesy of Shauna Bezilla) will study his choice major, Professional Golf Management at Coastal Carolina University.

These values are inherently in my everyday life.” Board President, Currie R. Weed said, “We are so pleased that Hunter was our first scholarship recipient. He is not only a standout golfer, but an outstanding young person as well. We wish him the best of luck with his schooling.” Pulaski was eligible to receive this award based on his active participation in The First Tee of Boyne Highlands youth development program.

A sweet start to fall: Apple Town By Jessica Evans Harbor Light Newspaper

When Frank Gotts first noticed the 100 year old farmstead property for sale on US 31, just south of the town of Brutus, he saw potential. His wife, Barb, however, wasn’t so sure.

“The first time we looked at the farm, I got a stomach ache just considering the possibility of buying it, as I knew it would be quite a bit of work to fix it up,” she said with a laugh. “Yeah, it was a little rough around the edges,” Frank admitted with a smile, “but I finally convinced her that if we could just fix up the barn and put some effort into it, it would be worth it eventually.” It seems like the hard work has payed off looking at the renovated bright red barn, which is now the site of the Gotts’ apple cider making facility. These days the smell of apple cider and cinnamon sugar donuts waft through the air upon entering the farm, with bright orange pumpkins

creating a cheery backdrop. A large cider press sits on the ground floor of the barn, while the upper portion serves as a viewing area and place to eat freshly made donuts and drink cider. Special events such as weddings are also held in the barn. Now in its’ third year as the areas only cider mill, Uncle Frank’s Apple Town is serving up fun fall activities in addition to cider and donuts. Hayrides, games for children and U-pick pumpkins are all available every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. mid-September through the end of October. For those interested in the cider making process, the Gotts recommends stopped by around 9 -CONTINUED on page 8B

Q:What is a Burpee exercise? Burpees is a funny sounding name which may bring a smile to your face. Smiling, however, is the last thing you will feel like doing after you complete a set of this intense whole body exercise. You will be laughing when you realize the effects it can have on your physique. The Burpee exercise is one of the most popular exercises used by trainers, coaches and military forces throughout world. This simple exercise can deliver a punishing full body workout, with enough variations to make it challenging for both beginners and seasoned athletes. In a short period of time, it delivers the benefits of strength, cardio, and endurance. The Burpee is also known as a squat thrust. According to the Oxford Dictionary, the Burpee is named after Royal H. Burpee, an American physiologist who created the exercise as a simple and quick fitness assessment test as part of his PhD thesis in Applied Physiology in 1940 from Columbia University. The exercise gained more popularity when the military started to use it as a way to assess the physical fitness level of recruits in World War 2. The strength benefits come from working your chest, shoulders, arms, thighs, hamstrings, butt and abs. The fat burning -CONTINUED on page 2B

Local Foods Week set to take place in October By Jessica Evans Harbor Light Newspaper

The Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce is partnering with North Central Michigan College, Crooked Tree Arts Council, PetoskeyHarbor Springs Area Community Foundation, ISLAND and many area businesses to celebrate local foods October 21-27. Local Foods Week will include a local foods sampling event to promote local farms, lectures and discussion forums on food topics, documentaries, among other activities. According to Petoskey Chamber Director Carlin Smith, the event will be informative and a lot of fun. “The local foods movement has taken off not just here in Michigan, but across the country and it goes beyond

just being something trendy. This is here to stay as people continue to better understand the value of local foods and the land that it comes from,” Smith said. “People are taking a more holistic approach to eating, as suddenly people are getting their eggs and local produce from their neighbor instead of a thousand miles away, and that’s very cool. In regard to Local Foods Week, the Chamber congratulates the organizers of this event with all their hard work they have put into it and for continuing to help promote healthy and local foods.” Helen Leithauser, North Central Michigan College Corporate and Community Education Business Training Coordinator, noted that this event is a wonderful opportunity for groups from

all parts of the community to come together to celebrate local foods. “The events are designed to recognize and support our local food growers, and also to strategize as a community ways that we can strengthen our local food system,” Leithauser said. “By strengthening our local foods network, we help preserve our land, our health and our economy. As part of the Local Foods Alliance, we see this as the starting point for growing a stronger local foods system.”” The events, which start on Sunday, October 21, are as follows: Sunday, October 21 Brother Dan’s local foods benefit dinner at Knights of Columbus Hall Monday, October 22 North Central Michigan -CONTINUED on page 3B

How you perform a basic Burpee. 1. Start in a standing position. 2. Sit into a squat. 3. Kick your feet back behind you so you’re in a push-up position. 4. Pull your feet back into a squat position again. 5. Stand and jump up in the air, and repeat. There are several variations of a Burpee. One variation to make it more challenging is to add a push-up when you are in the push-up position. Don’t feel intimidated. As hard as Burpees can be you will not find a better exercise that can target so many muscle groups in such a short period of time. So give it a try and add some Burpees as a finisher at the end of your next workout. Email Glenn with your fitness question:

Blue Jean Day helps Foundation bring attention to breast cancer McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation is asking community businesses to help raise awareness of breast cancer by encouraging employees to “dress comfortably” on Wednesday, October 24. With one in seven women developing breast cancer in her lifetime and men also facing the disease, the key to survival is education and early detection. Blue Jean Day draws attention to the need for early detection and raises money to help provide lifesaving mammograms to women who are unable to afford them. It also helps to unite the community and provide education about the importance of breast health and early detection. “Blue Jean Day is a fun and easy way to show your support for breast health awareness,” said Maureen Babrick, Team Leader of Imaging Services at McLaren Northern Michigan. “We are asking area businesses to help us reach every member of our community to support breast health and early detection. We hope everyone will join us by participating in Blue Jean Day on October 24 to make a difference in fighting this formidable enemy – breast cancer.” Participating is easy. Local businesses give their employees the chance to support the Kathleen Jontz Breast Health Fund through the McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation by purchasing a $5 sticker and wearing blue jean pants, shirts, skirts, etc., on Wednesday October 24. The fund provides mammograms to women ages 40 – 64 years old who have no insurance or are underinsured and supports breast health educational programs in our community. For more information about breast health or to participate in Blue Jean Day 2012, call (231)487.3500.

A Vocabulary of Place

Week of September 5-11, 2012


Words of Appreciation for the Little Traverse Bay Region

Words Here are ten vocabulary words that Professor Ed Voss, author of Michigan Flora, the definitive guide to every vascular plant in Michigan, would have expected you to know. Dr. Voss passed away in February of 2012 after a lifetime of research at the University of Michigan and involvement with organizations such as the Little Traverse Conservancy and the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council. Angiosperms: Flowering plants; the seeds of which are in a capsule that contains nutrition of some sort (e.g., a fruit or nut). Angiospermous trees living in the North Temperate Zone (as in most of the United States) typically shed their leaves in winter and are termed deciduous. These trees are also called hardwoods because their wood is often hard and tough compared to conifers. Anthocyanin: Bright red and purple pigments that we see in fall foliage colors. These are the same pigments we see in beets, apples, and grapes (and in red wine). These pigments are formed in the autumn from trapped glucose. Carotene: Orange pigment that we see in fall foliage colors. Carotene is in the leaf throughout the season, but is masked by the green pigments in chlorophyll. When photosynthesis slows in the autumn, the chlorophyll is absorbed into the plant and the other colors present are revealed. Climate: The generally prevailing weather conditions of a region, including temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind, sunshine, etc. averaged over many years. A region’s climate is influenced by latitude, altitude, and nearby large bodies of water. Climate determines growing period and is a primary factor in determining what type of vegetation will thrive in a region.

The Forest for the Trees In an effort to better appreciate the Little Traverse Bay Region by building our collective vocabulary of the natural elements of this place, this column shares ten words each month. Just as a particular place has a specific vocabulary, activities in that place also have a specific vocabulary.

By Wil Cwikiel Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I’m sure this is a direct result of the trips “up north” when I was a kid and proof of William Wordsworth’s axiom that “the child is father of the man.” My early October birthday was always celebrated on a camping trip to the Tip of the Mitt region and the annual autumnal color show has forever been linked to birthday candles and my mom’s famous German chocolate cake. We all have images that are seared into our mind’s eye; images of special moments, places, or events that serve as the internal photo album of our lives. Many of my most cherished images are of the Northern Hardwoods in October. An early October full moon rising across an open field rimmed with red and orange maples ablaze with the setting sun. Shaking a tamarack branch and watching the gold dust needles shimmer to the ground. Lying on my back watching leaves fall while I was supposed to be writing a high school English paper on the poetry of e.e. cummings. Although a single falling leaf may indeed be a timeless metaphor for loneliness, I like to think of the annual color show and leaf fall as a dramatic turning of the seasonal wheel and a superb salute to the joys of summer and a signal that we need to prepare for winter. If nothing else, it is the forest’s way of saying, “here I am, don’t take me for granted.” Whether it’s taking the dog woodcock or grouse hunting (for the benefit of the dog, of course) or driving my daughter Sadie around to collect leaves for her biology project, I’ll jump at any excuse to get outside this time of the year. Sadie even got me out on the golf course to serve as her caddy! As Sadie and I were hiking the North Country Trail near Sturgeon Bay in search of the perfect oak leaf this weekend, the variegated reds, yellows, and greens of the red maples caught our eye. As we rounded a bend in the trail, the hardwoods gave way to a grove of eastern hemlock with no understory. Sadie commented on the change in the forest type and I repeated the lines from the opening number of Music Man: “You gotta know the territory.” When admiring individual leaves or searching for the perfect leaf for a collection, it’s easy to fall into the trap of not being able to see the forest for the trees. To understand how forests work and why a certain species of tree grows where it does, it helps to know the territory. By territory, I mean the climate of a region (influenced by latitude, elevation, and the proximity to large bodies of water), and the unique soils, moisture, slope, aspect of a particular site within that region. The “territory” determines what community of trees is likely to inhabit an area. Michigan’s climate is conducive to forests. Prior to settlement by Europeans, 95-percent of Michigan’s land mass was forested (today only about 50-percent of Michigan is forested). Northern Michigan’s forests are dominated by two main forest communities: the Conifer Bog and Swamp Community and the Northern Hardwoods Community. The Conifer Bog and Swamp Community exists in the flat low-lying former glacial lake plains or ice-block depressions. For a good example,

take a look at Stutsmanville Bog next time you head north out of town on State Road. The Northern Hardwoods Community occurs on the well-drained areas of glacial till or outwash plain in the county and contains the trees that star in our autumn color show. Although our local upland forest community is referred to as Northern Hardwoods, the species of tree that is most likely to actually grow on a particular site depends on the actual physiography of that specific location. Although average seasonal temperature is most important on a regional scale, such physical aspects as the slope, aspect (direction the slope is facing), soil type, and depth to groundwater create specific conditions that influence the ability of a tree species to out-compete others. For example, on the south and west facing slopes of the sandy ridges near Sturgeon Bay, red oak, red pine, and white pine can hold their own against the beeches and maples, but in the more rich soils of glacial till a bit further away from Lake Michigan, they don’t have a chance. As Sadie and I drive back home (she to press leaves and me to pick up my shotgun for the obligatory afternoon bird hunt with Minda, a brindled Labrador retriever who lives for the autumn waterfowl and bird season), talk goes to how the leaves turn colors. I remember having a discussion with Sadie years ago whereby she just encouraged me to quit using big words and appreciate their beauty. Today, we talk about how the beautiful oranges and yellows come from the same pigments (carotene and xanthophyll) that color carrots and bananas… and how those pigments were present in the leaves all spring and summer, just waiting for the deep green chlorophyll to finish its business of photosynthesis and fade away. Perhaps all of us are like sugar maple leaves: bright and beautiful inside, just waiting for our chance to show our true colors. As Sadie heads for the big books to dry and press the leaves she collected for her high school biology project, Minda the Wonderdog and I head for a secret little spot that was clear cut a few years ago and is now in the process of becoming overgrown with young aspen. This spot is typical of the forest area north of Harbor Springs. The rolling topography contains beeches and maples on the higher ground, and balsam firs, cedars, and red maples growing in the lower areas. It’s a good example of the fact that what is called the Northern Hardwoods is actually an intricate mosaic of forest types interspersed in a pattern determined by subtle changes in physiography. Such areas provide great habitat for a wide range of species, including ruffed grouse and woodcock. The woodcock flushes from the thicket of crimson raspberry canes and climbs through the golden aspen leaves. Its maddeningly erratic flight takes it into a sunlit opening in the aspens. Beyond the aspens are splashes of red and orange from red maples and greens of balsam fir and northern white cedar. The mottled brown bird with the ungainly beak, the golden aspens, the reds and oranges of the maple, all bathed in the golden glow of sunset for one glorious autumn instant. I hear a gentle whine from where the bird took off. Minda the Wonderdog is giving me a look of contempt that is usually reserved for when I miss an easy shot…but the look has a serious touch of scorn since I didn’t even shoulder the gun…just stood there with my mouth open watching the bird fly away. Sure, we will go home with one less bird for the grill tonight, but with another autumn image that will last a lifetime.

Gymnosperm: Seed producing plants in which the seed is not enclosed (gymnosperm means “naked seed”). Gymnosperms evolved much earlier than angiosperms (about 380 million years ago, whereas the flowering plants became widespread about 100 million years ago). Gymnospermous trees living in Michigan are the conifers--cone bearing trees such as pines and spruces that have leaves (needles) that remain on the tree for several years (they lose about 1/3 per year--except for the tamarack that loses all of its needles each year). Conifers are also called softwoods because their wood is typically light and easy to work. Forest Ecosystem: A complex ecological system dominated by trees that is composed of all the living organisms (plants and animals of all sizes and descriptions--from soil microbes to the tallest white pine) and the nonliving physical environment including the atmospheric, hydrologic, and soil conditions. Forest community refers to the distinctive assemblage of plants and animals dominated by one or more tree species. Northern Hardwoods Community: This is the forest community that creates the autumn color show across most of Emmet County. This community includes sugar maple (Acer saccharum), beech (Fagus grandifolia), eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis), red maple (Acer rubrum), basswood (Tilia americana), and white pine (Pinus strobus). Thanks to the varied topography and soil conditions created by the glaciers, what forest ecologists map as Northern Hardwoods is actually a mosaic of forest communities which includes pine and oak forests (though with fire suppression efforts, oak and pine stands are being overtaken by maples and beeches), conifer swamps, and deciduous floodplain forests. Physiography: The physical aspects of an area’s geography. Whereas climate determines the occurrence of trees on a regional level, physiography (elevation, aspect, slope position, water table, etc.), soil composition, and microclimate determine what tree will grow in a particular place. Pioneer Species: Tree species that are the first to become established on a site after a disturbance (such as clear cutting). Pioneer species include paper birch (Betula papyrifera), trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides), and black cherry (Prunus virginiana). The seedlings of pioneer species are not tolerant to shade, and so over time they are replaced by shade tolerant species (such American beech and sugar maple). Xanthophyll: Yellow pigment that we see in fall foliage colors. Like carotene (orange pigment) and tannins (brown pigment), xanthophyll is in the leaf throughout the season, but is masked by the green pigments in chlorophyll. When photosynthesis slows in the autumn, the chlorophyll is absorbed into the plant and the other colors present are revealed.

Main Street Kitchen Apple butter, slow cooked

’m making a lot of an incredibly good apple butter these days, and it all started with the oatmeal. And habits. Which I haven’t always been great at forming. It’s taken some time and thought to recognize this, and to try to correct course wherever possible.

In my journals dating back as far as I can remember, I implore of myself to do certain things. Over and over again I make little lists, and it’s stunning to see how over and over again, the lists have been the same, going back years. I know this because a few years ago, I undertook the exercise of reading through my lifetime of journals. The first of them was a small, pretty book, white with tiny colorful flowers on it and a golden lock, filled with my third-grade musings. Along the way there were both colorful and plain writing booklets and tablets and spiral bound notebooks. But the journal-writing itself was a sketchy habit, with gaps of months or even years here and there. The thing is, nobody told me: go read those journals, it’ll show you something important about yourself. I just happened to do it, and I don’t know what got me rolling but once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. The writing was wicked but it didn’t matter, I was going to eyeball this thing until I eked out every possible byway and highway leading to heightened self-knowledge. Then I saw my lists appearing so regularly that they were like road signs along the way, perched above the road, along the shoulder, off to the side…all quite visible, but having driven that way so many times, I didn’t notice their regular appearance as I wrote. Thank God for the lists though, because otherwise the journals would have probably killed me, the writing was so rough. I don’t recommend going back and reading yours (if you don’t have journals, I envy you) unless you have some kind of subconscious need to go exploring. In which case, take a Sherpa with you. At the top of those little lists peppered throughout my journals was always the reminder to write more. Write often. Write well.

Slow-cooked, apple butter and oatmeal make for a delicious combination on a chilly fall morning. (Photos courtesy Maureen Abood)

Then: Pray more. Pray often. Pray well. Read more, often, well. Find solitude. More often. Eat breakfast. Exercise. Take vitamins. Eat breakfast? Well, yes, misfit as it may seem amid the list-gravitas. It’s as though I thought that habitually listing the eating of breakfast would help me form the habit of actually doing it. The writing, the solitude, the reading, the prayer—those are going to be lifelong worksin-progress; eating breakfast is one I ought to be able to check off my list. I’ve always thought I’d be doing myself a favor if I could find a way to love the oatmeal, to keep me coming back for more. When I worked for a short time in Chicago for an organization that had its own decent cafeteria, there was oatmeal that didn’t at all resemble the gluey

stuff I made on occasion at home. I ate it every day on the job, and it seemed like that was the job. I remember apples, cinnamon and spice more than the oatmeal itself. Now I’m back on the oatmeal wagon, and not because I’ve been digging into journals. It’s because of this intensely good apple butter that I want to make again and again. It has nothing to do with actual butter other than it’s beautiful texture, and the heaven of spreading it over almost anything you’d spread butter on. The slow-cooking reminds me of the lifelong journaling, but I also like it because it works like a charm on the fruit, keeping the whole world subtly infused with the scent of apples and spices for hours. This apple butter is perfection eaten simply off the end of a spoon, and in a bowl of oatmeal every morning, it’s the stuff habits are made of.

Apple Butter This apple butter is like deep, dark gold, it’s so intensely flavorful. Use a sweet-tart mixture of apples, like Honeycrisp, Cortland, Golden Delicious and Granny Smith. The effort to peel, core and slice all of the apples is going to pay off, I promise. You can use a melon baller to remove the cores. Swirl a spoonful into your oatmeal, or spread the butter on something toasty. It’s also delicious with pork, and the best eaten straight from the jar.

A variety of apples can be found at Bill’s Farm Market in Petoskey.

6 1/2 pounds apples – cored, peeled, and sliced 1 cup granulated sugar 1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract Place the apples in a slow cooker and set the temperature to low. In a medium bowl, whisk the sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg cloves and salt. Pour over the apples and mix until all of the apples are coated. Cook on low in the slow cooker for 10 hours (total time is 12 hours), stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown. Stir in the vanilla and cook another 2 hours uncovered to release more of the moisture and further thicken the apple butter. Puree the mixture in a blender or in the pot using an immersion blender. Spoon into clean jars and cool. Cover with lids and refrigerate or freeze immediately—we have not canned for pantry shelf-life. This makes 4-6 cups of apple butter, which will keep for about two weeks in the refrigerator.

At the Movies with Cynthia Morse Zumbaugh

End of Watch I’m a sucker for police drama; blame it on Joe Gannon and Friday, Malloy and Reed, and Furillo and Belker. This is one of the better police buddy/dramas that I’veseen in quite some time. It’s well written and very well acted, actually developing thecharacters and not depending on the action to carry the day. That’s not to say that therearen’t great action scenes, because there are, but the movie is carried on the relationshipbetween the partners. Brian Taylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Michael Peña) are partners, but they are much more than that, they are family. Taylor’s girlfriend, Janet, and Zavala’s wife Gabby are best friends and the relaxed relationship between the two men makes this all quite plausible. This is the story of two everyday cops, neither is on the take nor psychotic nor evil nor almost ready to retire; they are just normal guys, honestly trying to do their jobs. Do they break rules sometimes? Who among us doesn’t? In the course of their daily assignments, they run afoul of a drug cartel and are subsequently marked for death. I’m not going to go into great detail about the plot beyond that because there are too many things I could accidentally give away, but trust me, it is definitely worth seeing. Gyllenhaal is excellent and this is one of the best, if not the best, performance I have ever seen from Peña. Anna Kendrick and Natalie Martinez are very good as the significant others and it was great to see America Ferrera, even in support. End of Watch was written and directed by David Ayer, no stranger to police drama as he proved with the award winning Training Day, among others. His portrayal of life on the street strikes as very real and he quite admirably mixes in humor, compassion and true sadness with the action; his dialogue makes the performances better. Rated R and definitely NOT for kids, this movie is gritty to a fault. Constant profanity, some “watch-through-myfingers” scenes, sexual situations and lots of sexual references and conversations make this one for adults.

TELL THE WOLVES I’M HOME Author: Carol Rifka Brunt In this debut novel June Elbus is fourteen and she doesn’t fit in - she has few friends, she’s shy, she’s odd, and she loves the Middle Ages. She also loves her Uncle Finn, her godfather, and the one person in her life who remembers what it is like to be a teenager, to be different, to not fit in. The time she spends with Finn is magical - he shows her the world of art and the world of music. He treats her, not as an awkward teenager, but as a cherished friend. Finn makes her feel sophisticated, smart, worldly. The bond they have is special. It is the one treasure that June feels is hers alone. The year is 1987 and the AIDS epidemic is becoming a part of the world, part of every conversation. Since it is only the beginning, there is much that is unknown and much that is misunderstood. There are rumors and falsehoods. One thing is certain in June’s young life and that is that Uncle Finn is dying of AIDS. June’s whole life is falling apart as she and her older sister sit for a final portrait painted by Finn. This tender story is about so many aspects of June’s life about her changing relationship with her sister, about learning that her parents had lives before the ones she knows, about the difficulties of growing up, about acceptance, about forgiveness, about being alone, and about all the different kinds of love that exisit in our world. It seems incredible that all these issues could play out so wonderfully, so dramatically, and so lovingly - and yet they do because of the skill of this author. She leads you through these lives and makes you care about them all. She especially makes you care about the unexpected friendship June finds in Toby, Finn’s partner. This is an exceptional book that examines many issues and guides the reader to look at them on a very personal level. This is the kind of book you savor and wish it would never end. This is the kind of book worth your time. REVIEWED BY JUDY CUMMINGS

Apple need to be washed, sorted and rinsed prior to being ground up to make cider. (Photos by Jessica Evans)

Apple Town... -CONTINUED from page 1B

a.m. on Saturdays in October. The 50 acre farm, which, according to the Gotts, used to also function as a cider mill nearly 70 years ago, has 750 apple trees and a variety of other crops. “I love when we get older people in here telling us that they used to come here for cider when they were children and how nice it is that we have preserved that today,” Barb said. “Children love to come out here to learn about making cider and to look around the farm and how to make donuts. It’s a great family friendly atmosphere and we have a lot of fun here.” Anyone growing apples knows that conditions this spring were less than ideal for cider production due to the extremely warm weather in March, causing the apple blossoms to freeze out. A few fortunate growers in Michigan had better luck than others and have a crop this fall. Unfortunately, the Gotts lost the majority of their crop, but are still able to produce cider with apples from the Cheboygan and Kewadin areas. A combination of Honeycrisp, Ginger Gold and Fugi apples are being used to produce Gotts’ cider. “It’s truly delicious,” Barb said. “The com-

Soldiers in the Shadows Exhibit, is open on the second floor of the Pellston Airport. Emmet County and the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, along with collaboration from Petersburg National Battlefield in Virginia, are pleased to announce the opening of the new exhibit. The exhibit tells the story of 1st Michigan Sharpshooters Company K, Michigan’s Anishnaabek, who comprised one of the largest all-Indian units for the Union Army in Civil War, 1861-65. Of these 146 men, 32 came from Emmet and Charlevoix counties. There is no admission fee. The Odawa Exhibit is still open on the first floor of the airport.

Andrew J. Blackbird Museum, the 2012 - 2013 season continues with the exhibit “The Beauty of Quillwork.” Consisting of quilled items from its collection of the very old and traditional to newer and contemporary pieces, the exhibit focuses on the beauty and craftsmanship of each individual example.

After being washed and sorted, the apples are put onto a conveyor-belt like part of the cider press where they tumble into the grinder. They apple mash is then covered with a series of plates and “blankets,” as Barb fondly calls them, and are then compressed. Following this, a waterfall of fresh cider cascades into a holding bin where it is immediately bottled and then served to customers upstairs. Apple Town typically uses Fugi, Ginger Gold and Honeycrisp apples to make their cider.

bination of these three apples goes perfectly together and the result tastes just like nectar. You can’t drink enough of it.” Making apple cider is a seemingly simple process (but done on a larger scale thanks to the Gotts’ industrial-sized press) and involves washing the apples, turning them into a mash with a grinder and then pressing the mash with a press to produce the juice. It then goes into a tank where it is immediately bottled and served. “One important point about our cider is that it isn’t pasteurized, so you can let it harden if you want,” Frank said with a wink. “Or you can let it sit even longer and then have your own apple cider vinegar.” The Gotts noted that they are expecting to have a large number of visitors over the next few weekends. “It’s fun to come out and pick your own pumpkins and watch us make cider,” Barb said. “It’s a great way for people of every age enjoy to come out and celebrate fall.” For more information on Uncle Frank’s Apple Town, call 231-347-8203.
