DOING BUSINESS

2016

Business of the Year

State of the Art Framing and Gallery, LLC

Steve Loveless concedes that he has been a little slow to accept his status as a “successf ul businessman.” As a photographer, he’s always identified more with his creative side, but like many artists, he’s found it doesn’t hurt to have a side vocation, especially when that vocation doesn’t take him too far from his art. In the case of his State of the Art Framing and Gallery business, his work is itself is a kind of art. “Frames can be beautiful, creative objects,” Loveless says. “Framing is really about bringing two pieces of art together. You’re using form, color,

dimensionality to focus the viewer’s attention on a piece. Many times, the frame is what really completes a piece of art.” Loveless started State of the Art Framing and Gallery back in 1985, when he was just 30 years old, leaving a comfortable position as head of the framing department at DeYoung’s wallpaper and paint store in downtown Traverse City. He remembers vividly how he felt on his last day at DeYoung’s, before taking the leap to start his own shop. “You clock out for the last time and it really does hit you that this is

Business of the Year

FINALISTS it: Any dollar I make, I have to make for myself. When you have a job, it can be a busy day or a slow day, and you still get a paycheck. When you’re in business for yourself, it’s all up to you.” Loveless is grateful that he never had that worrisome moment many small businesses face, when, on their first day, they flip the sign to “open” and wait nervously f or the f irst customer to arrive. His reputation as an expert framer enabled him to create a stack of orders by the time of his grand opening, and his career as a small business owner snowballed from there. Within a year, he had enough clients to be able to hire an employee; a few years further on and he moved into a larger Traverse City location. Later yet, when his wif e suggested opening a second location near their new home in Benzie County, the Beulah store seemed to develop a client base as quickly as the first Loveless came to f eel, however, that in the course of building his framing and gallery business he had left too much of his photographic art behind. In 2007, he decided to “simplif y his lif e,” by closing the larger store in Traverse City to f ocus on the shop closer to home in Beulah. By then it had evolved into more than a framing shop: He and his wife, Ann, who sews fine-a t mosaic quilts, both use the storefront as a personal gallery. State of the Art Framing and Gallery became a tourist destination af ter Ann won the top award at Grand Rapids’ 2013 ArtPrize®, the nationally renowned public art competition. The couple then won for a joint artwork in 2015. News of the awards has “brought a remarkable number of people to Benzie County,” Loveless says. “TheChamber still gets calls wanting to know where ‘that gallery is that won ArtPrize®.’ Then once they come here, they’re likely to stop somewhere and get lunch or come back later on vacation. It’s a big win for Benzie County, and we’re really proud of that.” Running a framing and gallery business been a fascinating ride for Loveless, who, over the years, has seen remarkable works of art pass through his hands. He has f ramed originals of Ansel Adams, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol, but also he never lost sight of the importance, the responsibility, of creating a worthy display for personal mementos, like a scorecard memorializing a personal best on the golf course. (He’s done more than one of those.) Loveless’s story as a businessman recently came f ull circle when he was honored with the 2016 Benzie Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Business Member of the Year Award. Shortly thereafter he began moving forward to devote more time to his photography and other projects with the announcement of the sale of the gallery. Patty Wolf, is an employee and a Beulah native who Loveless credits for doing much of the heavy lifting at State of the Art Framing and Gallery for years, has become the new owner of State of the Art Framing & Gallery, LLC. Loveless, however, won’t be disappearing from the gallery anytime soon. Both he and his wife will continue to exhibit their artwork there, in part to maintain the venue as one of Benzie County’s surprising new attractions. “The e’s that f amous Groucho Marx joke: You won’t notice the difference, outside of the improvements,” Loveless says, laughing. “And Patty is doing an amazing job making the shop her own. She loves the work and working with customers, and most importantly she’s as happy as I always was.”

The purpose statement for the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Business Member of the Year reads as follows: “To advance the general welfare and prosperity of the Benzie area, so that its residents and business community will prosper.” Our 2016 recipient, State of the Art Framing & Gallery, LLC and the other finalists certainly fit that description.

AJ’S EXCAVATING AJ Zirkel started his small business as a teenager and has grown it into an enterprise that takes care of the families and businesses of Benzie County with regard to their excavating needs. They provide quality service at a fair price. The company also supports many local events and nonprofit organizations through donations and volunteering. AJ’s Excavating is continuing to grow, with a new location and expanding retail landscaping sales.

LABADIE’S SUMMER PLACE CASUALS America’s largest single location retailer of quality outdoor furniture, Labadie’s strives to provide premier quality items that are designed to withstand the harsh Michigan climate. Their motto is, “Quality Doesn’t Cost, It Pays.” In 16 years of operation, they have continued to expand their product line and square footage to showcase their inventory and plan to continue expanding in those ways. Founder Norm Labadie and his family proudly promote Benzie County through marketing, networking and charitable giving.

STEFANSKI DENTAL Dr. Julie Stefanski opened her dental practice in Benzie County in October of 2015 after she relocated from Manistee because her family has roots here and her children attend school in Frankfort. She and her husband, who is also her business partner, developed a plan and turned their dream into a reality. In addition to running a thriving practice, the couple and their team also run programs on dental health at local schools, support sports teams and sponsor many local events.

GOVERNMENT ˜ e partnership of the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance was established based on the premise that many common legislative issues impact northern Michigan businesses and that these issues should be addressed regionally to maximize the political in° uence of this 12-county chamber alliance and its over 6,500 members. ˜ e Alliance partners include the Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce, Benzie County Chamber of Commerce, Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce, Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce, Gaylord Area Chamber of Commerce, ˜ e Lake Superior Community Partnership, Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce, Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce and Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce, all of whom have identiÿ ed legislative areas that should be monitored and advocated to elected o˝ cials on the local, state, and federal levels. ˜ e Alliance has also added several associate members, which include the Boyne Area, Cheboygan, East Jordan, Elk Rapids and Harbor Springs. When deemed appropriate and in support of Chamber Alliance positions and recommendations, member advocacy and grassroots activities will be developed and promoted using this legislative agenda as a basis for taking position on legislative policy. ˜ e Alliance believes that it is important for our legislators to work together in a bi-partisan manner, as cooperation and consensus are important elements needed to assure that all legislators work toward the betterment of the region. • Make it easier for businesses in Northern Michigan to be proÿ table. • Help strong business sectors remain strong in our region. • Make sure we have a workforce educated and prepared for the future needs of our communities. • Promote investment in our public transportation and business infrastructure. ˜ e complete Alliance Legislative Agenda can be viewed on our website at www.benzie.org.

HEALTHCARE

‘Best Little Hospital’ is a Welcome Surprise to Residents and Visitors Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital has been called a lot of good things over the years, but this summer a visitor declared it to be “the best little hospital this side of the Atlantic. Th y may be small in size, but they have the biggest heart. I was in the area for three plus months and the care was truly caring.” “Obviously, we really enjoy getting those kinds of comments f rom patients,” said Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital President Peter Marinoff. “But that kind of reaction doesn’t happen by accident. This community and Munson Healthcare have invested heavily in our hospital so we can offer great health care services you wouldn’t expect to f ind in a small town. Even more noticeable is the sincere warmth and friendliness of our staff. Th y really do care about each person, and it shows.” Another summer visitor wrote that during her unexpected trip to the Emergency Room “everyone was warm, f riendly and simply amazing. Th y did not rush or skimp on a procedure. Thank you for letting me enjoy the rest of our vacation.” “In a vacation mecca like ours, it’s very reassuring for people to know we can handle most emergencies right here and get them back to doing what they came here to do,” Marinoff said County residents, too, are sometimes surprised to learn about the comprehensive services provided at Paul Oliver. When Joyce Lawson of Beulah had a severe allergic reaction after eating shellfish she didn’t know where to turn. When she didn’t find an Urgent Care listed in the phone book, she recalled there was “some sort” of a hospital in Frankf ort. “As far as the Emergency Room, I didn’t even know that was there,” she said. Her trip to the Paul Oliver Emergency Room that night likely saved her life. “By the time we got to the hospital I was petrified ” Joyce said. “When I couldn’t breathe, that was really, really scary.” Emergency Room nurse Stephanie McCarthy, RN, was one of the staff members on duty that night. “When Joyce came in it was pretty clear she was in some immediate danger. We see allergic reactions, but not to the severity that Joyce’s reaction was.” “I was just thanking God f or them because they were great,” Joyce said. “I could have died that night. Munson Medical Center is close, but in my situation, Paul Oliver was closer and thank God it was. I had no idea, no idea that such a gem was sitting right over there in Frankfort.”

In November, Paul Oliver was one of only 18 rural hospitals in Michigan to be recognized by the National Organization of State Office of Rural Health for excellence in quality, and one of just eight rural Michigan hospitals honored f or excellence in f inancial strength. Paul Oliver also was named a 2016 Press Ganey Guardian of Excellence Award winner for outstanding patient satisfaction. “We are f ocused on serving our community, and these awards demonstrate the dedication of our staf f to providing the best care,” Marinoff said In addition to an award-winning Emergency Room, Paul Oliver has state-of -the-art diagnostic services and convenient specialty clinics staffed by Munson Healthcare specialists. Physicians travel to Frankf ort to hold specialty clinics so patients don’t have to drive f ar for expert specialty care. Visiting specialists include those in cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, physical medicine, and podiatry. Tucked away on a hillside overlooking Lake Michigan, Paul Oliver offers stunning views for people receiving dialysis at the new Elizabeth C. Hosick Dialysis Center, and for residents of the fi e-star rated Paul Oliver Living and Rehabilitation Center. “I am thankful for staff and physicians who provide 24/7 care for our patients, and for volunteers, board members, donors, and our community who value this facility and offer their strong support for rural health care,” Marinoff said. “Munson Healthcare has been promoting close-to-home, expert care for 31 years. Nowhere is that more evident than at Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital. We are really unique f or a small hospital. Despite challenges in health care, we’ve been able to grow and be successf ul largely because our community has been so supportive through generous charitable giving and by using the services we offer here.”

PHOTO COURTESY OF BENZIE CENTRAL SCHOOLS

EDUCATION

Small Schools, Big Opportunities Speak to educators in Benzie County about the region’s schools and all they have to offer, and one word will repeatedly stand out from the rest: community. When Matt Olson decided last year to accept the position as superintendent f or Benzie Central Schools, he acknowledges that the research he conducted was as much for the education of his school-age children as for his career. “I moved here, I moved my family here, to be superintendent,” Olson says. “And I would not have moved to a district that I wasn’t comfortable putting my own children in.” What Olson and his wife found in Benzie Central inspired him. ˜ ey are both arts-oriented people: He was a musician, she was a dancer, and they were so gratiÿ ed to see that the school district had managed to avoid the arts program cuts many schools have had to make. “We have one of the largest auditoriums within a 50-mile radius,” Olson says. “We have a thriving theater program. We have a band and choir program. We have an art program. Oftentimes, you’re not going to ÿ nd those things in a smaller school.” For Benzie parents and students, robust arts o˛ erings, and academic assets that include AP courses and high school/college dual enrollment opportunities, are educational amenities they’ve come to expect. Benzie Central Schools have the awards to verif y parents’ high expectations: ˜ e Mackinac Center, a conservative Michigan think tank, ranked all four of the district’s elementary schools in the top 15 percent statewide; Benzie Central High School has earned a silver medal rating f rom U.S. News and World Report; and the state department of education recently counted Benzie Central among the Top 25 districts that are “beating the odds.”

Sharing Benzie County’s educational mission is the neighboring Frankf ort-Elberta district, where superintendent Je˛ Tousley sees a similar commitment to keeping educational o˛ erings and standards high. Lately, he’s been contemplating ways to bring more secondary education opportunities to the area, but not only in traditional academic pursuits. Tousley would like to see his school tap into the nation’s renewed interest in vocational education, opening opportunities f or students to train for careers in trades or advanced manufacturing while still in high school. “It may sound funny coming from a school administrator, but I really believe there are avenues kids should explore other than a f our-year university degree,” Tousley says. “I’m ÿ nding there isn’t really anybody in the pipeline for many of the trades like plumbers or electricians, and those are good-paying, meaningful jobs. So we need to be able to branch out and show our students what all is possible.” One of the biggest things both districts have to o˛ er is a strong sense that the community stands ready to support the schools, say both Tousley and Olson. Residents in the Frankfort-Elberta district recently approved a millage that puts laptops in the hands of all students beyond second grade. Benzie Central’s Matt Olson calls this the ‘X f actor’ of smaller schools, the invisible element that makes them thrive. Even though Benzie’s students and families are spread throughout the county, “there’s a real family feel to both the community and the school,” Olson says. “We rally around each other, we go to the Friday f ootball games. ˜ at feel is intangible, but when you have it, you know it.”

Northwestern Michigan College For decades, Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City has filled a valuable niche for those seeking postsecondary educational opportunities, whether that is students looking to earn affordable transfer credits or area residents pursuing their lifelong learning goals. In more recent years, NMC has added a bounty of new and noteworthy offerings to its strong lineup of associate degree programs, including a culinary arts program and maritime academy. For those interested in pursuing a four-year degree without leaving the area, NMC’s University Center campus offers both classes and degree programs from several of Michigan’s top four-year universities.

Life in Benzie

RECREATION ˜ose who call Benzie home know Michigan’s smallest county packs some of the state’s premier natural wonders into a tight space. Tops on the list: 25 miles of prime Lake Michigan shoreline, sporting everything f rom epic 400-f oot-high dune cli° s to easy-to-access city beaches. Much of that sand-and-water nexus is publicly accessible: Benzie shores include a big swath of the celebrated Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and most of the Arcadia Dunes nature preserve. ˜is land makes a perf ect home base f or those who want the beach to be an everyday after-work getaway. Further inland, the big water and beach of the lakeshore give way to the rolling mix of forest and farmland that is Benzie’s rural charm. Here you’ll ÿnd more than 50 inland lakes, including the 15-squaremile Crystal Lake, a renowned Midwest destination for boaters, sailors, swimmers and ÿsher man. Not one, but two, clean rivers twist through

Benzie’s valleys on their way to Lake Michigan: ˜e Platte River, which is hallowed ground for canoeing, kayaking, tubing and ÿshing; and the sleepy Betsie River, which wends its way through a remote state game refuge that delivers just the dose of nature and solitude we all need to feel refreshed. Fall and winter here can be as captivating and dramatically beautiful as summer. ˜e region’s mix of hills and valleys, carved by retreating glaciers more than 10,000 years ago, make Benzie County one of the North’s most alluring venues f or hiking and mountain biking amid fall’s brilliant reds and oranges. When the snow falls, locals and visitors head for the slopes at scenic Crystal Mountain and trace miles of crosscountry ski trails. Benzie County also o° ers over 135 miles of some of the best groomed snowmobiling trails in the Midwest.

The county’s most renowned cultural resource is the Michigan Legacy Art Park, a contemporary sculpture park set in a forest at Crystal Mountain, the works of art connected by an enchanting, winding trail. The park also hosts a popular summer concert series at its amphitheater amid the woods. You’ll f ind the area’s other major anchor arts institution, The Oliver Art Center, in downtown Frankfort, not only hosts nearly a dozen exhibitions a year, it’s also the county’s premier destination for classes in everything from ceramics and painting to poetry and the wellness arts.

Benzie County’s rich and diverse agricultural offerings, such as orchards, vineyards, and farms, finds delicious expression in the county’s rising food scene. Benzie eateries include charming local diners where the offerings are all-American good and comfort-food satisfying, ethnic eateries that bring Asian and south-of-the-border fla ors to our palates and upscale eateries where inventive offerings define the menu. Regardless of where restaurants stand on the culinary spectrum, there’s a good chance that the ingredients are as fresh as possible, and from a farm not far down the road. Among the county’s restaurant highlights: Frankf ort’s Fusion serves up an eclectic menu starring creative takes on Thai and Chinese cuisine juxtaposed with Western classic desserts like crème brûlée and f ried ice cream. The combined f orces of the Thistle Pub & Grille and Wild Tomato Restaurant & Pub, both at Crystal Mountain, offer upscale f are. The f ormer is one of the region’s f ine dining gems, while the latter curates a menu shaped by the inventive street food concept. For a classic diner vibe, settle into Honor’s Platte River Inn, f amous f or its burgers, fried fish and log cabin interior. And in Elberta, the Cabbage Shed offers a hip menu in an old warehouse that really was used as cold storage

NATURAL RESOURCES, CAREER, ARTS/CULTURE

Rounding out the arts scene, Benzie has a symphony orchestra, a seasonal Shakespeare theater and a community chorus. Movie buffs will find a continuous stream of indie and first- un films at the Garden Theate , a 1920s-era Frankf ort movie house that was restored and reopened in 2009. For live music, try the Cabbage Shed, in Elberta, and Stormcloud Brewing, in Frankfort, for a mix of local acts and touring up-and-comers. St. Ambrose Cellars in Beulah along with Lake Ann Brewing Company in Lake Ann also offer live music events throughout the year. During the warmer months, don’t miss Beulah’s laid-back summer concert series on the shores of Crystal Lake.

WORK Tucked in Benzie’s southeastern corner, the tiny crossroads village of Th mpsonville has a bar, a church, and a post offi , and a small clutch of homes. So when Richard Anderson, co-owner of craft distillery Iron Fish, recently opened down a dirt road a few miles outside of town, on a farm that had been abandoned 15 years, you can understand people’s surprise at their choice of such an off-the-beaten-path lo ation. In a field of craft distilleries that’s growing more crowded by the day, Iron Fish stands apart by growing about 20 percent of the grain that ends up in their premium spirits, the only farm-based distillery in the entire Great Lakes Basin to do so. “People get all the way out here and say, ‘How did this happen?’” Anderson says, laughing. “Little did we know, we’d create a craft cocktail scene in Springdale Township.”

Some of that “scene” certainly comes f rom being just a mile f rom Crystal Mountain, one of the Midwest’s premier ski and golf resorts, but just as important has been the support of the local community in the successf ul launch of the distillery. When Anderson thinks about that support, all of those community connections, there are so many he barely knows where to begin. Sleeping Bear Farms put hives on the distillery f arm property, harvested honey, and the honey barrels have been used in making bourbon. Griner Sugar Bush sold maple syrup to the distillery and the product was used in spirits and the barrels used to age bourbon. Grow Benzie has stopped out with its f ood truck to serve distillery customers. Beyond that, “We were so overwhelmed by well-wishers, visitors and customers that we ran out of spirits our first weekend and had to close a couple days,” Anderson says. Iron Fish has also tapped into the broader agricultural community, sourcing as much rye, corn and barley as possible from nearby farmers. “We’ll use a couple hundred thousand pounds of grain this year, so it’s really creating some demand,” Anderson says. “We really could not be more delighted by the support we’ve seen from the community and from plugging into that local food hub.” For people choosing to open a business or build a career here, that kind of support and those kinds of connections, become a rich and enduring part of life, and a crucial element of financial success

YOUR PARTNER IN TOURISM ˜ e Benzie County Area Convention & Visitors Bureau’s (CVB) mission is to promote Benzie County as a tourism destination utilizing the funds collected through State of Michigan Legislation (PA59), which allows for up to a 5% (currently 2% in Benzie County) assessment to be collected from overnight visitors staying in one of the CVB’s 23 lodging property members. Each year the CVB’s Board of Directors and sta° create a marketing plan for the implementation of these funds to promote our area. ˜ e CVB works with their lodging property members, local businesses and organizations to attract visitors year round. In 2015 the Benzie County CVB secured a registered trademark for their Northern Michigan Preserved® tagline, which is used in marketing the natural resources of the area. ˜ e marketing programs of the CVB consist of regional partnerships, magazine advertising, brochures, public relations, travel and trade shows, and ÿ nancial sponsorship of local events. In addition, radio, television, electronic advertising, social media and inf ormation services are also avenues for their marketing. ˜ e CVB’s four-season marketing plan for 2017 consists of advertising in 23 printed publications, 10 electronic advertising venues, three printed brochures, 11 travel and trade shows and regional partnerships. ˜ e CVB also retains a public relations ÿ rm, which has resulted in numerous articles being written about Benzie County in state, regional and national magazines, newspapers and online publications. ˜ e value of these articles in 2016 was over $600,000.

Television advertising with commercials developed f or all f our seasons, utilizing the Northern Michigan Preserved® call to action, air in southeast and southwest Michigan and in suburbs of Chicago; to view these commercials visit www. northernmichiganpreserved.com. ˜ e CVB also gives back to the community by helping to ÿ nancially sponsor over a dozen local events that bring visitors to our area. For 2017 that investment will exceed $10,000. One of the most important and successful partnerships is the joint operating agreement between the Benzie County CVB and the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce. Not only is this a ÿ scally sound partnership for both organizations, but also it beneÿ ts our members and provides them additional opportunities. ˜ e CVB services all areas related to tourism, including leisure, business, events and group travel. What does this mean to our local economy? Well over $20 million annually, according to conservative estimates based only on visitors that spend the night in a CVBmember lodging property. If you consider visitors who also stay with family and friends, camp, and stay at other lodging properties in the County or nearby communities, or just visit for the day, that impact amount is easily four or more times that amount. For more inf ormation on the Benzie County CVB you can visit their website www.visitbenzie.com, call them toll free at (800) 882-5801, or stop by our visitor’s center located at the corner of US-31 and M-115 in Benzonia where they are proud to share space with the Benzie County Chamber of Commerce.
