New Buffalo man charged with mosque bomb threat

A

New Buffalo man was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday, May 8, on allegations he made a bomb threat at a southwest Michigan mosque. Malik Mohammed Nasir, 36, was still being held Monday, May 6, in the Berrien County Jail on charges of terrorism and making a false bomb threat. He could receive up to 20 years on the terrorism charge and a maximum four years for the alleged bomb threat attempt. Nasir was taken into custody for the April 26 bomb threat at the Islamic Association of Southwest Michigan at 1342 E. Napier Ave. near Benton Harbor. According to Benton Township Police, worshippers inside the mosque were evacuated during a search and allowed to return when no bomb was located. The probable cause affidavit in the case revealed detectives were led to the suspect from the telephone number used to contact a 911 dispatcher and make the threat. The number was associated with Nasir who, earlier that day, had a routine encounter with police. Police said he was arrested at Fairplain Plaza, located just a few blocks from the mosque, after he admitted calling in the bomb threat. Police said a leader of the mosque told investigators Nasir had recently visited the house of worship. According to court documents, Nasir revealed his motive: he was calling for police to come and “lay them all out because they are illegal and here as refugees.” Nasir is scheduled to be in the courtroom for a preliminary exam in the case May 8.

Farmer/veteran killed in farm accident BY STAN MADDUX

uthorities in southwest Michigan are investigating the accidental death of a lifelong farmer and graduate of River Valley High School. Patrick Freehling, 46, was found on May 2 about 7 a.m. inside his barn where he was working near Baroda by a farm worker, according to Baroda-Lake Township Police. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities did not release further specifics about the fatality due to the ongoing investigation into what exactly transpired. “This appears to be a tragic farm incident,” said police, who noted there were no signs of foul play. Freehling was a member of the Berrien County Youth Fair Board and the Baroda Township Planning Commission. His wife, Teri, is vice-president of the Berrien County Commissioners which cancelled their meeting that night out of respect for the Freehling family. “It’s a huge loss,” said Chuck Heit, undersheriff of the Berrien County Police Department. According to Freehling’s obituary, he owned a 180 acre farm which had been in his family for the past 100-years and purchased a number of tractors and a satellite guidance system to guide the tractors in the fields He was a nuclear mechanic at the American Electric Power Company power plant in Bridgman for nearly 20-years. Freehling also owned and operated a drain tile business that put drain tiles in farm fields and parks in Michigan and Indiana. According to his obituary, Freehling showed dairy heifers, steers and welding projects at the Berrien County Youth Fair as a member of 4-H since the age of five. The 1991 River Valley High School near Three Oaks also served three tours of duty in the Persian Gulf and toured much of the South Pacific in places like Hong Kong, Australia and Malaysia while in the U.S Navy. He was also stationed at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii where he was a 2nd class petty officer and gas turbine systems technician fixing engine components on war ships. Among the military awards he received was the U.S Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for professional and superior performances of his duties while serving aboard the U.S.S. Fletcher, according to his obituary. Freehling was described by his family as a tireless worker, loving to farm since childhood and excellent welder, constructing many farm implements from scrap steel. His funeral was scheduled May 8 at Trinity Lutheran Church near Buchanan.

POKAGON FUND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RESIGNS

T

he Pokagon Fund Board of Directors has announced that, effective June 7, 2019, Janet Cocciarelli will resign her position as the Fund’s executive director. In a press release, board chair Rob Gow lauded the dynamic leadership that Cocciarelli brought to The Pokagon Fund during her four-year tenure as executive director. “Janet has implemented with extraordinary vigor and vitality the board’s strategic vision of the Fund as a leader in community development. She has worked closely with municipalities and charitable organizations to support education, assist those in need and enhance community vitality,” said Gow. “It is with a very heavy heart that I resign from my position as executive director of The Pokagon Fund,” said Cocciarelli in the press release. “The past four years have been a love affair for me. I will sorely miss Harbor Country, the fund board and staff and those municipal and community leaders who are so devoted to improving the quality of life of Harbor Country’s residents. I will also miss the close relationship I have had with members of the Pokagon Band and the grantees I have worked with in Harbor Country, Dowagiac, Hartford and South Bend. However, after four years of commuting from Grand Rapids, I look forward to spending more time with my family.” Gow stated that the board deeply regrets Cocciarelli’s decision to resign but understands her decision to devote more time to her family in Grand Rapids. “We wish her the very best with anything she chooses to do in the future,” he said. The Pokagon Fund is a nonprofit private foundation located in New Buffalo. It is funded by revenue from The Four Winds Casino Resort. Grants are awarded to nonprofit and governmental organizations in Southwest Michigan, as well as Hartford and Dowagiac, Michigan, and South Bend, Indiana. Since the organization’s inception in 2007, The Pokagon Fund has provided more than $25 million in grant awards and scholarships to enhance the lives of the families in its service area. — STAFF REPORTS

High lake topples boat slips

A

BY STAN MADDUX

local marine expert hopes private boat slips in New Buffalo that were under water during a recent period of heavy rainfall isn’t a sign of things to come with Lake Michigan at close to record high levels. “It was so bad, dock boxes were floating away down the river,” said Bob Stratton, owner of Service 1 Marine. Stratton said private slips in the D and E docks at The Moorings were covered by almost six inches of water on May 1. He said the docks behind Harbor Grand Hotel were flooded because of consecutive days of heavy rainfall and north winds blowing water into the marina from the near record high lake. Stratton said the rising tide caused ropes that were securing boats to slips to break. Some of the boats were also damaged, he said. Stratton said electrical wiring underneath piers was also submerged. It didn’t take long for the docks to be dry again once the rain stopped and winds became more westerly. If the lake continues to be high, Stratton said he hopes north winds during the upcoming boating season are limited, to avoid the potential for major inconvenience and even danger in The Moorings. There, electrical lines supply power to air conditioners and other appliances on boats, and rising water could become a danger. Slips at The Moorings flooded on occasion last year but Stratton said the lake seems to be a bit higher this year. ‘’It was bad last year but this year is a little worse,’’ he said. New Buffalo City Manager David Richards said there have been no flooding issues in the public slips. The municipal slips can be raised if they start being overtaken by water, he said. ‘’We can adjust the docks, if necessary, but we’re expecting business as usual,’’ he said. Stratton said the private slips in the D and E docks cannot be adjusted in height.

Artists invited to donate to next month’s ‘Chair Affair’

L

ocal artists are invited to create one-of-a-kind chairs, benches, stools and footstools to be auctioned at a fundraiser to support Neighbor by Neighbor, a social service program in its second year of operation linking residents of Chikaming, New Buffalo and Three Oaks townships with resources and social services, at the second annual Chair Affair from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 26, upstairs from the new kitchen and pantry restaurant in Three Oaks (19 N. Elm St.).  This will be a juried event, where a local art critic will select the top 10 chairs to be sold in the live auction. The remaining chairs will be sold via silent auction. A limited number of free chairs are available upon request or artists can secure their own items to donate.   There is no theme and as many different methods as artists can think of can be applied to their chairs. Last year’s Chair Affair had several painted chairs, one with decoupage, one with knots and ropes and one was even made from scratch. They can be purely works of art or they can be functional. Artistic creations can be intended for indoor and/or outdoor display. For more information and to sign up to create an auction item, contact Linnea Berg at 248-990-4685 or leave a message via the Neighbor by Neighbor website or Facebook page (www.nbynharborcountry.org or Facebook @nbynharborcountry).  Primarily funded by The Pokagon Fund, Neighbor by Neighbor served more than 100 people in its first year.

T

he U.S. Post Office will hold its 27th annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Saturday, May 11.

Region of Three Oaks Museum boasts new displays at season opener

pon first entering The Region of Three Oaks Museum, visitors will hardly know where to look first. Guests were treated to a reveal of the museum’s new 2019 displays during a special reception held at the museum the evening of Friday, May 3. “We have about five or six new exhibits,” Nick Bogert, a member of the museum’s board of directors, said. Members of the museum’s Collections Committee designed and constructed the exhibits, with help from Bogert and Sue Harsh. “Take a look at how things have changed - they’re worth looking at,” Judy Jackson, who chairs the museum’s Collections Committee, said to Friday’s audience. Charles Sittig, chair of the museum’s board of directors, said board members work hard researching facts for each exhibit - although the process isn’t without its challenges. “We only know what somebody told us and what we read in the newspaper - and you’re not supposed to believe everything you read in the newspaper and only half of what you see,” he joked. In the stove exhibit is the Roper gas range from 1930, which was donated to the museum from a local resident years ago. Three brand-new stoves have also joined the exhibit,

including the tap and range from the 1940s or 1950s that has a timer on the range that still works. In one corner is an exhibit on the once popular Hunerjager Department Store (which also used to be the site of E.K. Warren’s son’s department store). Jackson said the exhibit also has a unique feature where visitors can guess how much they think something cost years ago. In the farm room sits a new oil painting that came back to the museum from Michigan State University. The painting is believed to be of the son of E.K. Warren (the founder of Three Oaks’ famed Featherbone Factory), Charles Warren, sitting on a horse at Mexico’s Mule Ranch. (His father was one of the largest cattle ranchers in Colorado, Mexico, Texas and New Mexico.) Jackson gave thanks to Ron Jelinek, former District 21 state senator and District 78 state representative, for bringing certain items back to the museum. The items were originally located in the Chamberlain Memorial Museum, which was founded by Warren in 1910 and was located in the Three Oaks Township Public Library. When the museum closed, all the items were shipped to Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. There’s also a new exhibit on the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918. Jackson explained that Three Oaks lost more

citizens than any other city, village or township in Berrien County. Soldiers who came home from Fort Custer in Battle Creek, Michigan, on the weekends played a large role in the flu’s rampant spread. “They didn’t just come home to visit, they came home to bring the Spanish Flu,” Jackson said. Museum board member Randy Miller, who is in charge of the Civil War exhibit, drew attention to the hat band with a number 12 on it that is believed to be from an officer in the 12th Michigan Infantry as well as canteens and other artifacts. Information on Oliver Brockway, an officer in the 12th Michigan Infantry who’s buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Three Oaks, is also on display. “We have several more artifacts but we don’t have room to display them we’re going to expand next year,” he added.

I

n several exhibits are QR Codes, which can connect visitors instantly to more information behind the exhibits. Visitors can access the QR Codes by downloading the QR app on their phones. In the Civil War exhibit, visitors can view a two-minute video via QR Code on how the 12th Michigan Infantry saved Ulysses Grant’s military career during the Battle of Shiloh. In the new military display (which

Bogert curated), visitors can find information on the Red Arrow Division. According to the display, the Army’s 32nd Division, which was comprised of Michigan and Wisconsin National Guardsmen, adopted the Red Arrow logo for their “ability to pierce even the most heavily fortified enemy lines” during World War I and II. A March 26, 1953 New Buffalo Times article on display states that U.S. Highway 12 was renamed Red Arrow Memorial Highway March 22, 1953. Next to the military display is information on the legend of Captain Wessel Whittaker, with a painting depicting his infamous shipwreck by New Buffalo High School student Sonja Heath. Guests can do a “hat drop” and donate to the museum toward the front. “Our museum runs on about $7,000 a year and we’re all volunteers,” Sittig said. Members of The Region of Three Oaks Board of Directors are Sittig (chair), Bogert, Miller, Harold Russell, Janet Hayes, Julie Sittig, and Chris Mitchell. For information on upcoming museum events, visit the new website, www.regionofthreeoaksmuseum. com. The museum is located at 5 Featherbone Ave. in Three Oaks and is open now through October from noon to 5 p.m.

Pitching legend headed to Three Oaks baseball museum

A

BY STAN MADDUX

Detroit Tigers legend who was the last pitcher in the major leagues to win 30 games is coming to the new baseball museum in Three Oaks. Denny McLain is scheduled to be at the Biggest Little Baseball Museum on the second floor of the Three Oaks Township Public Library Saturday, June 22. McLain will also speak at the nearby Acorn Theater. Garry Lange, founder of the museum, said McLain reached out to him with an interest in coming here following the April 13 grand opening of the museum. ‘’I was very excited and very thankful,’’ Lange said. The museum features a vast collection of baseball memorabilia compiled over the last 40 years or so by Lange, who grew up in Three Oaks and now lives in Sawyer. McLain was 31-6 on the mound in 1968 when the Detroit Tigers won the World Series. Lange said he just recently added an exhibit focusing on McLain and the Tigers’ championship season to build upon the enthusiasm of such a legend of the game coming there. McLain, who at 19 made his major league debut with the Tigers in 1963, won two Cy Young awards for his achievements on the mound. He also had two 20 game-winning seasons during a career that was cut short at the age of 28 after he developed problems with his pitching arm following the 1969 season. He was suspended from playing for three months during the 1970 season by then Major League Baseball Commissioner Bowie Kuhn on allegations tied to gambling and organized crime. Ironically, the last hitter McLain ever faced as a member of the Atlanta Braves was all-time MLB hits leader Pete Rose, who’s serving a lifetime suspension from the league for gambling. Lange said McLain has appeared in other small Michigan communities to help keep alive the World Championship season of the Tigers from that era. “I think people will appreciate meeting him,” he said. Lange said a specific itinerary for McLain’s appearance will be developed closer to his appearance. He anticipates McLain being at the museum from 12 to 2 p.m. and then beginning his talk at the Acorn Theatre a half hour later before returning to the museum for another public meet and greet session. Lange said his inspiration for the museum was to illustrate what growing up was like for baseball fans of yesteryear and to give baby boomers a place to briefly get reacquainted with their childhoods. “I just wanted to create a room that allows people to come in and reminisce, reflect, learn and visit and clearly that’s what it has done. People have come in and done those things,” he said.

Doubleday baseball game in Three Oaks

T

BY STAN MADDUX

wo teams dedicated to how baseball was played before the Civil War and the only little person to ever bat in a major league game will square off in Three Oaks. The game May 18 will be on the playing field at Three Oaks Elementary School between the House of David Echoes team from Benton Harbor and a squad from the Eddie Gaedel Society. The House of David Echoes plays the game the way it was in 1858 when the ball was dead, the bats were larger and players didn’t wear gloves. Among the rules back then was players and fans being courteous and every runner crossing the plate reporting it to the official scorer for the run to count. Gary Lange, founder of the new Biggest Little Baseball Museum at the Three Oaks Public Library, is also a member of the southwest Michigan chapter of the Eddie Gaedel Society which meets once a year in Stevensville. He said the game will be more of a demonstration than a competition to reflect how teams played before the Civil War. Other differences in the game then and now include pitchers trying to put the ball where the hitters want it and balls caught on one hop being an out. The House of David Echoes team plays at festivals and other special events annually during spring, summer and fall. The team, for example, played April 28 at their home field at Eden Springs Park against the Miss Blossomtime squad. “They’re historical reenactors,’’ Lange said. For $7, people will receive a picnic lunch beginning at 11 a.m. followed by the match at noon. Members of the Eddie Gaedel Society team include South Haven native Dave Gumpert, a major league pitcher from 1982 to 1987 for the Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals. Dave Rudolph and Bryan McCarty, members of the 1979 River Valley High School state champion baseball team, are among Gumpert’s teammates. The 3’ 7’’ Gaedel stood in the batter’s box for the St. Louis Browns in 1951 in a publicity stunt kept secret until the 26-year old midget stepped out of the dugout. He walked on four pitches and was replaced by a pinch runner. Gaedel, who was from Chicago, never played again because of a ban imposed by Major League Baseball to preserve the integrity of the game. Members of the local Eddie Gaedel Society branch meet every year on August 19, the date Gaedel stepped up to the plate. “He did something that all of us would have liked to have done. He appeared in a major league game. We kind of get together and celebrate his life,’’ Lange said.

From the Bleachers COLUMN BY KURT MARGGRAF IN CHICAGO

W

hat a week. The Chicago Cubs, who started the season by losing seven of their first nine games, swept the St.Louis Cardinals in a three game series at Wrigley Field, and by so doing, moved into first place. Watching the Cubs the first nine games of the season was difficult for their fans. Many friends of mine thought that championship window had closed. Sportswriters and sports talk shows were wondering if it was time to start trading some of the team’s core players and I must admit that I was wondering myself. Well, the team that was playing so poorly the first nine games completely turned it around and won 17 of their next 22, and are now sitting atop the Central division with the best record in the National League. The Cardinal announcers even said that Javier Baez is the best two-way player in baseball right now. The much maligned pitching staff has completely turned it around and are currently the best in baseball by a large margin. Manager Joe Maddon was on the hot seat when the season began, now he once again seems like a genius. The front office barely made any moves last off season and after that rough start, people questioned their competency, but it now looks like they had it right all along. I realize that the season is only about 20 percent complete and there will be a lot of ups and downs before it’s over, but right now the team, and its fans, are sitting on top of the world. The other exciting sports story of the week was the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby. The betting favorite, Maximum Security, seemingly won the race, but after what seemed like an eternity, was disqualified for running out of his lane, giving the victory to Country House. The race was over in approximately two minutes, but we didn’t find out who on the race for another 20. Which brings me to the subject of instant replay. When sporting events started using instant replays, I was all for it. My guess is that the vast majority of players and fans felt the same way. After all, getting it right is the most important outcome. However, after about 20 years of use in the NFL and about 10 years in MLB, I have had a change of heart. First of all, some of the plays are so close, the replay officials sometimes miss the call. Most importantly though is the amount of time it takes to make a decision. Most or all sports now use instant replay to help them get things right. While I applaud the stewards at the Derby for having the courage to change the outcome, the decision took about 10 times as long as the race itself. My wish is that instant replay would be used to correct only the most egregious mistakes and the close calls should remain in the hands of the humans. Comedian Steven Wright said “I was watching the Super Bowl with my 92-year-old grandfather. The team scored a touchdown. They showed the instant replay. He thought they scored another one. I was gonna tell him, but I figured the game HE was watching was better.” Be kind to one another. Keep smiling. Talk to you next week.

Bison drop two to Brandywine BY STAN MADDUX

ood pitching kept the Bison within striking distance but work from the mound turned sour in a doubleheader loss May 2 at home against a strong Brandywine squad. New Buffalo behind starting pitcher Tucker Morse trailed 5-0 when Max Ripley with two outs in the 5th inning took the hill. Ripley shut out a potent Brandywine offense until giving up a run to the start the final inning. The ball was turned over to Andrew Hofstetter who limited the damage by working out of a bases loaded jam for the Bison. On their final trip to the plate, New Buffalo started what looked to be a rally when Ben O’Donnell after reaching first base on an error by the shortstop went to third base on a sharp single to right field by Stephen Margaritis. O’Donnell crossed the plate when Margaritis drew a throw from the catcher on his steal of second base to make the score 8-1. The final out came when Ripley with Margaritis still on the basepaths took a called third strike. The Bison lost the nightcap 14-3. Much of the scoring from Brandywine in that contest stemmed from walks by Bison hurlers. “Our pitchers could not find the plate. We really struggled,’’ said head coach Tyler Wilson. The game was called after just two innings from early darkness caused by overcast skies, sprinkles and temperatures dipping into the upper 30’s.

Harbor Country Hikers to explore ecological restoration next weekend

M

ud Lake Bog will be the classroom for a lesson on ecological restoration sponsored by Harbor Country Hikers at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 18. Hike leader Jack Pizzo will lead the group through the rare geographic feature known as Mud Lake Bog near Buchanan. The bog began as a kettle lake created when the last glaciers retreated about 17,000 years ago. It has evolved through all the stages, or successions, of a bog. Before becoming a nature preserve in the 1970s, the area was used as a dump, officially at some point, unofficially at others. The bog has also survived floods and fires. Pizzo is a landscape architect and ecologist in Three Oaks with more than 30 years experience in ecosystem restoration. The one-mile, approximately two-hour hike includes boardwalks. Comfortable hiking gear and insect repellent are advised. The Mud Lake Bog Preserve is at 905 E. Elm Valley Rd., Buchanan, between Wells and Clear Lake roads, with parking on Elm Valley Road. Harbor Country Hikers events are open to all and children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Membership ($20 for individuals or $30 for families) is encouraged. For weather cancellations, further information about HCH or to request a membership form, visit harborcountryhikers.com. — STAFF REPORTS

DEAR FRIENDS...

t is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation as Executive Director of The Pokagon Fund, effective June 7, 2019. Responsibilities related to family require that I be in Grand Rapids full time. The past four years have been some of the best of my professional life, primarily due to the broadminded, receptive and impartial approach The Pokagon Fund Board has taken in its strategic visioning, coupled with the creativity and commitment of the charitable organizations and municipalities that have striven with resolve and compassion to improve the lives of the persons they serve. During my tenure, the recognition by the Board of support for education as a key goal brought a collaboration with Education Trust-Midwest to offer literacy training for teachers and has also provided significant reading resources to the children of Dowagiac, Hartford and South Bend. The role of the Fund in the establishment of Neighbor by Neighbor to help struggling residents of Harbor Country connect with social services they need along with the Fund’s continuing support of food programs have been key elements in the Board’s strategy to focus on family economic security. The Board also fostered leadership development by identifying, nominating and financially supporting local candidates for the Leadership Accelerator Program in Southwest Michigan. There is also a

heightened desire to reach beyond our service area to partner with diverse private and public entities to benefit the region. The Board’s commitment to community vitality has been at the forefront of The Pokagon Fund’s efforts during my four years and has resulted in significant support for the renovation of downtown New Buffalo, full funding for the renovation of the New Buffalo Township Hall, support for parks throughout Harbor Country, and continuing assistance for the arts. Most recently, the Board’s decision to support a Community Needs Assessment has produced a crossmunicipal collaborative that should lead to revitalization for the area as well as three community-based committees addressing rural broadband, a community center and greater housing options. In collaboration with The Pokagon Fund Board and the Council of Michigan Foundations, I will help to identify a small pool of candidates who have professional expertise within the philanthropic and community development realm. Once I have transitioned back to Grand Rapids, The Pokagon Fund will continue to support the community through the efforts of its Board of Directors and current staff. John Krsul will manage the office until a new Executive Director has been hired and Kaaren Cass will continue to maintain our grant-making process. Please stay connected, and thank you, again. It has been such a pleasure to work with you. — JANET COCCIARELLI, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

BY FRANCESCA SAGALA

r. Andrew Losinieski spent seven years in school. As a result, he said he “missed out” on a lot during his 20s, having to forego traversing the globe like his peers because he was studying to be a neurosurgeon. Once he was fully immersed in his career, his demanding work schedule often put a strain on his relationships. Still, Losinieksi said he wouldn’t trade his career for anything in the world. “I love waking up every morning - I love doing what I do,” he said. Natalie Walter, who was presenting on college athletics, said that she sometimes had to endure taking 7 a.m. classes in her days as a college athlete, having to be briefed on the first 20 minutes of class by a friend, or “buddy,” who’d diligently taken notes for her. “You learn a lot of skills of survival in that sense - but I wouldn’t take it back for anything,” she said. Tracy Hauseman (who was discussing her career with selling vitamins in the e-commerce world) added that some students may have a big question mark in their head about what they should pursue. She encouraged everyone to keep asking questions until they arrived at their answer. “You don’t know what you’ll do now but you will,” she said, adding that she didn’t even know her own career existed years ago. Losinieski, Walter and Hauseman, along with 20 other professionals, took time out of their mornings Friday, May 3, to share their respective journeys to New Buffalo Middle and High School students. The morning began in the New Buffalo Performing Arts Center with a presentation from Nancy Temple, who was this year’s keynote speaker. Temple, who works in litigation law in downtown Chicago as a partner at Katten & Temple LLC, advised latching onto a career that will bring you the most fulfillment - despite the challenges. “Being a lawyer is not easy - it’s a lot of hard work. In school, you have to read a lot of cases,” she said, adding that one of her college professors said that “you’re not a good lawyer unless you’re up and working 24 hours a day.” Temple attended the University of Illinois (where she met New Buffalo High School English teacher Lisa Moillison). From there, she moved on to Harvard Law School. (Former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama were also attending Harvard at that time.) Temple, who’s represented several people throughout her career (such as former Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon), hit a major roadblock when she lost her job after being a partner at Chicago based holding company Arthur Andersen LLP. Andersen went out of business when it was discovered that its audit client, energy company Enron, had committed fraud by lying on its financial statements. People questioned why Andersen hadn’t caught the false statements during its audits. As the lawyer, Temple was accused of obstruction of justice for instructing others to destroy documents (which was false) and was required to testify before Congress in June 2002. (The Supreme Court eventually reversed Andersen’s obstruction of justice conviction.) After becoming entrapped in the Enron scandal, Temple said no one wanted to hire her. Temple had the chance to land a job in business. Several of her friends had jobs in the business world. She had attended business school and had a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. But Temple’s attraction to law proved to be too strong. “I help solve problems for people - I get to help people. Every case is about a different story and client and a different person I can help. I get to learn about school districts and police procedures and how doctors treat cancer, so every case is interesting,” she said. New Buffalo Secondary School Principal Wayne Butler said that this was the fourth Career Day. While it started in the middle school, teachers spent the last couple of years requesting that it move to the high school as well. The feedback from the students was well worth the effort. Just that morning, Butler said a senior had thanked him. “She said, ‘I’m so glad we did this, I got the best interview, I got some great insights,’” he said. Butler said he wants students to understand why they devote approximately seven hours a day sitting behind desks and studying for tests. While he said that both schools are comprised of teachers who “say all the right things” and are “very inspiring,” he figures it can’t hurt for students to see why they engage in the business of learning from people whom they may not hear from very often. “I say, why do we do this thing called school? So we show them some career options that are out there and what they might be working toward,” he said.

New Buffalo float garners two awards at Blossomtime Grand Floral Parade

he float for the 2019 New Buffalo Royal Court certainly went places when it rode in the 113th annual Blossomtime Grand Floral Parade in St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, Michigan, Saturday,

May 4. The theme for this year’s Blossomtime Pageant was “America: The Places You’ll Go.” Each respective southwest Michigan community decked out a float representing one of the 50 states of the United States of America. During the noon ceremony before the parade, judges announced that New Buffalo’s “South Dakota: Great Faces, Great Places”-themed float had won two awards: the King’s Award for its tow unit “exhibiting excellence in the presentation and use of color and harmony” and the Twin Cities Award for the “float exhibiting excellence with the outstanding use, display and floral craftsmanship live flowers and blossoms.” Tracy Tanksley, who co-chairs the Miss New Buffalo Scholarship Pageant with Angela Dupre, said that members of the New Buffalo royalty have been working on the float for at least three days a week beginning the week before spring break during the first week of April. Sunflowers crowded the edges of the float. Lifesize bumble bees encircled two flowers toward the front. Members of the royal court stood against a backdrop of Mount Rushmore, one of South Dakota’s most popular tourist destinations, as they rode down Main Street in St. Joseph. Tanksley said the buffalo head peeking out from a covered wagon at the front of the float was the real showstopper. The head moved up and down as it rode in the parade, while white smoke billowed out of it. “We thought it was appropriate that a bison was leading it (the float), since we are the Bison,” Tanksley, referring to the school district’s mascot, said. Tanksley gave special thanks to Eric Odenwald, who had worked on the float up until the day of

A doggone good time at Harbert Community Dog Park

W

BY FRANCESCA SAGALA

hile the human half of its population was busy toasting to Cinco de Mayo, Harbor Country’s furry residents were taking part in their own celebration at the Harbert Community Dog Park Sunday, May 5. In honor of National Dog Park Day, dogs and their humans were encouraged to visit the dog park for an afternoon of exercise, socializing and prizes. The event was a part of Chikaming Park Board’s Celebrate Chikaming, a series of events during which the Park Board partners with area organizations throughout the year to bring programs and events showcasing the area’s natural features. Doggie gift bags, including bows with cherries on them (for nearby Cherry Beach) and refreshments (with dog treats made by Park Board assistant Sherry Curry) were available. Curry added that gifts were largely made possible through the support of New Buffalo Savings Bank. A $25 gift card from MAK Salon was also being raffled off. Music was provided by Radio Harbor Country. Members of Paws for Hope, a local, all-volunteer animal rescue group that facilities and aids animal adoption, were present with one of their dogs, Tiny, who is available for adoption. Paws for Hope volunteer Irene Weaver said that volunteers work out of their homes, taking in dogs and cats. The group also works with the Chicago, Berrien County and South Bend animal controls. “Whenever we have openings, we pull dogs and bring them into our homes and socialize them and get them ready for a new home,” Weaver said. Chikaming Township Park Board member Jill Underhill, who said the dog park and Berrien Street Beach are her designated properties to stewardship, said Curry, conceived the idea to hold the celebration. “We thought we would celebrate it here at our own dog park and make it a party for the dogs,” she said. Upcoming Celebrate Chikaming events include the Memorial Day Parade from Pier Street to the cemetery at noon Monday, May 27 (sponsored by the Lakeside Association); the four-mile beach hike and safety demo from 10 a.m. to noon from Townline Road to Cherry Beach Saturday, June 1; and Bluebird Education and Raffle from 10 a.m. to noon at Harbert Community Park Saturday, June 8. The park has undergone vast improvements throughout the past few years. Underhill said that the Park Board has a grant project that’s happening down by the fishing pond, where an ADAcompliant walkway and fishing platform will be installed at the edge of the pond. Park Board members have also a fountain, which will go in the pond and will be installed during the groundbreaking for the grant project. Over at the dog park, mulch has been added. The park contains one large, fenced-in area for larger dogs and one smaller one for dogs under 20 pounds. Handmade wooden furniture donated by Mary and Andy Brown from Hearthwood Rustic Furnishings has been added underneath the welcome pavilion across from the Carl Sandburg historical marker at the park’s entrance. Underhill said the Park Board is still looking for teams to practice in the regulation size Little League baseball field near the pond. “We’re still hoping to breathe some life into the ballpark,” she said. To “bridge the gap” between Chikaming Township Center and the park, Underhill said board members also hoped to add a walking trail (with possible adult exercise equipment) beginning near the yellow garage building used for storage. “We just want to get people to use our facilities and not just think of us (Chikaming Township) as a beach place,” Underhill said. Harbert Community Park is located at 13535 Red Arrow Hwy. in Harbert. The park is open from dawn to dusk. For more information, visit chikamingtownship.org/park-board and then follow Chikaming Township Parks, Preserves and Beaches Facebook page.

League to present panel discussion on civil discourse

T

WHAT IT IS, WHY WE NEED IT, AND HOW TO DO IT

he League of Women Voters of Berrien and Cass Counties (LWVBCC) has announced plans to host a public forum on positive civil discourse – also known as “how to disagree without being disagreeable.” Co-facilitators for the program will be a representative of each of the co-sponsoring organizations: Marilyn Klawiter, President, LWVBCC; Kathy Alton, Regent, Rebecca Dewey Three Oaks Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution; and Mary Jo Schnell, Executive Director of the OutCenter of Southwest Michigan. The forum will be held at the Berrien RESA Conference Center, Wednesday, May 15, at 6:30 p.m. and is open to the public.  In announcing this event, LWVBCC President Marilyn Klawiter provided this background: “What works better: Shouted invective or rational argument?  Surely the latter.  Why, then, do we seem to hear so much more of the former these days?  It’s not good.” The organizers noted that we are witnessing a breakdown in cultural norms in how we talk with and treat one another. To address the problem, this event will feature people who are or have been involved in government, the political process, and other roles given to conflict. Panelists will be State Rep. Aaron Miller (59th Dist.), Dennis Smith (Miller’s opponent in last fall’s election), Dave Pagel (former State Rep. from 78th District), and Joey Andrews (ran unsuccessfully in 79th Dist. last fall), They will help attendees understand how civil discourse figures in their work, any changes they have seen over the years, its impact on how they do their jobs, and what they have found to work best.  Audience participation will be welcomed. Summary:  Public forum on civil discourse, Wednesday, May 15, 6:30 p.m., Berrien RESA Conference Center, 711 St. Joseph Avenue, Berrien Springs.  The forum is open to the public. The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization meaning that it never endorses or opposes candidates or political parties.  LWV influences public policy through education and advocacy.  It encourages informed and active participation in government. — STAFF REPORTS

Friends of New Buffalo Library Community Forum to spotlight spiders

A

n understanding of and new appreciation for spiders is the goal of the Friends of New Buffalo Library’s Community Forum talk at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, in New Buffalo Township Library’s Pokagon Room, 33 N. Thompson St. The previously announced May 16 FOL program, “The Underground Railroad in Michigan,” has been cancelled due to speaker unavailability. Known as “The Spider Lady,” speaker Linda Strain will talk about spiders she has known through her lifelong interest and study of spiders. Both children and adults should find this program interesting and informative as she explains the natural place in the world inhabited by spiders. Strain is a retired public school educator with a master’s degree in environmental education from the University of Michigan who has shared her love of arachnids through her programs in schools, parks, libraries, nature centers and botanical gardens. Upcoming Community Forum programs include “Weather, Climate Changes and the Environments of the Future” Tuesday, June 11 and “Walking the Camino de Santiago” Monday, June 24. The Community Forum Series is sponsored by the Friends of New Buffalo Library, underwritten in part by The Pokagon Fund.

AS INTERPRETED BY SANDY “STAR” BENDT ARIES MARCH 21—APRIL 19 It’s go time, baby. Opportunities to make more money or secure luxury items are here but you need to go for it while it’s here. There may be some shifts or adjustments that need to be made to your usual operations in order to get the most out of it but it will be worth it.

LIBRA SEPTEMBER 23—OCTOBER 22 There will be a lot happening with partners or people you work closely with. Take the time to talk things through so they can solve their own issues. Avoid opening your home or over extending yourself at this point. You may not be able to get rid of them once you let them move in.

TAURUS APRIL 20—MAY 20 Start using that one-track mind of yours to focus in on the things that need to be done. It’s important that you stay focused on work and taking care of financial arrangements. Others may not be holding up their end of the deal and you may need to step up and handle it.

SCORPIO OCTOBER 23—NOVEMBER 21 Finances will smooth out nicely this week and you can expect some very good news concerning any legal issues. Talk with partners or close friends and start making plans for the future. Now is the time to open up and tell people what you want out of life. Share your dreams and release your fears.

GEMINI MAY 21—JUNE 21 There will be a lot happening with friends or people you associate with. You may be asked to help financially or commit to helping in the future. Be careful you don’t get taken advantage of or give more than you can handle, out of the need to be liked or accepted.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 22—DECEMBER 21 Be more creative and free spirited this week. This is not the time to get bogged down in details and paperwork. If you have ideas act on them. Go with those flashes of inspiration and let your creations take you to new places. Show off any talents you have and the jobs will materialize.

CANCER JUNE 22—JULY 22 New friends will be made and deeper connections will help you move past any painful memories you are carrying. This week it’s all about releasing the past and breaking out of habitual patterns. Free yourself from drama queens and embrace new relationships with a fresh approach.

CAPRICORN DECEMBER 22—JANUARY 19 You will have a lot of energy and pep this week and it’s important you keep the focus on yourself and not other people. Rather than seeing all the changes others need to make, take the time to see what you need to do for yourself and do it. Perhaps it’s time to pull back and do your own thing.

LEO JULY 23—AUGUST 22 This is the week to explore and try different things. Break out of your usual routines and treat yourself to something new. Don’t get caught up in logistics or trying to get everything organized and planned out. This is about being spontaneous and letting spirit guide you.

AQUARIUS JANUARY 20—FEBRUARY 18 This is a great week to get your home freshened up and your garden weeded. Start thinking about the summer season ahead and what you can do to make your home more relaxing and serene. You may find that some of your friends do not make your place very tranquil.

VIRGO AUGUST 23—SEPTEMBER 22 It’s important that you get recognition for all the hard work that you do. If people are not acknowledging the extra efforts you are giving, it’s time to speak up. Don’t keep giving everything you have, if others are not also contributing like they should be. Stand up for yourself and don’t be taken for granted.

PISCES FEBRUARY 19—MARCH 20 Your workplace could be a little hectic this week and it’s important you take time to decompress at the end of the day. Try to leave work issues at work. Don’t mix business with pleasure now. Avoid gossip at work. When you gather with friends relax. Don’t hash out all that work drama.
