City Council approves repaving on Stromer Road and Shore Drive

T

BY LINDA HENDERSON

he New Buffalo City Council held a special meeting Monday, July 2, to revise the street repaving plan, authorize a payment and accept a bid. The council approved pay request No. 8 from Pajay Construction for the North Whittaker Street Redevelopment Project in the amount of $504,492.29 for the work that has been completed through June 6. The work included paving, brick pavers, sidewalks, lighting installation and clean up. To date, Pajay has been paid $1,218,316 for the $4.3 million project; however, this is not the final payment, as there are punch list items that are still being performed. Councilmembers approved the following street repaving revisions: Stromer Road will be milled and gravel/sledge will be placed on the road surface from west of Redman’s Dog Care to Sand Road at a cost of $50,000; Northern Construction Services will mill and repave Shore Drive in Sunset Shores at a cost of $85,000; and South Norton and South Jamison streets were removed from the repaving plans for this year. The council accepted a $66,690 bid from Rieth and Riley to repave the fire station parking lot on North Harrison Street. Arndt Asphalt Sealing, Inc. also submitted a bid in the amount of $70,500.

Harbor Commission learns of dredging in the channel

A

LINDA HENDERSON IN NEW BUFFALO

t the New Buffalo Harbor Commission’s regular Thursday, July 5, meeting, Chair Doreen Kral reported that the US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) had recently completed soundings of the federal channel. With regards to the soundings, Kral added that the information has not been provided to the commission at this time. Boaters report shallow areas to the west of where the Jamie Lynn barge moors and outside of the mouth of the channel. The Emergency Dredging Fund (EDF) has a balance of $ 289,501.63. The fund is comprised of voluntary contributions from eight harbor entities: Dunewood Condominium Association, Harbor Point Shores and Harbor Landings Condo Associations, Lake Michigan Yacht Club, Oselka Marina, Pleasure Isle Marina, South Cove Condo Association and The Moorings Condo Association and the City of New Buffalo. Letters requesting donations are being sent to the participants this week. Kral reminded boaters that when mooring at the city’s Transient Marina, all boats must face into the slip, as backing in is not allowed because the engines can cause damage to the infrastructure. The city boat launch has experienced a very busy season and parking is typically full, leaving only the last lane possibly available for beach overflow parking. The Transient Marina has also had a busy season this year. Currently, there is no information available regarding the planned dredging of the cove area to the east of the channel by the USACE. In June, the Corps received $275,000 from the federal government to dredge three additional Michigan harbors, with New Buffalo being a last-minute addition. The USACE will bid and manage that dredging project, with the spoils being deposited on the beachfront in Sunset Shores. A press release stated: “In April, Congressman Fred Upton reached out directly to Assistant Secretary of the Army (Civil Works) R.D. James asking to include critical operation and maintenance funding for the dredging of these specific harbors. Under the new Work Plan: Saugatuck Harbor/Kalamazoo River is to receive $375,000, South Haven Harbor is to receive $365,000 and New Buffalo Harbor is to receive $275,000. St. Joseph Harbor has already been allocated $765,000 for commercial dredging.”

LARA Director Approves Eleven New “Debilitating Medical Conditions” for Michigan Medical Marihuana Patients

he Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) Director Shelly Edgerton has approved adding eleven new medical conditions to the list of debilitating medical conditions set forth in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008. “With the changes in state law to include marihuana-infused products, and the advancement of marihuana research, and upon the recommendation of the panel members, I’ve added these eleven conditions to the approved list,” said Edgerton. “I’d like to thank the members of the review panel for their hard work in discussing these petitions and making their recommendations.” The following conditions were approved by Edgerton after a majority of the Medical Marihuana Review Panel members recommended approval:

Arthritis Autism Chronic Pain Colitis Inflammatory Bowel Disease Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Parkinson’s Rheumatoid Arthritis Spinal Cord Injury Tourette’s Syndrome Ulcerative Colitis

The following conditions were denied by Edgerton after a majority of the Medical Marihuana Review Panel members recommended denial: Anxiety Asthma Brain Injury Depression Diabetes Gastric Ulcer Non-Severe and Non-Chronic Pain Organ Transplant Panic Attacks Schizophrenia

Social Anxiety Disorder

The Medical Marihuana Review Panel made their recommendations to Edgerton after receiving citizen comments in April and May related to the petitions to add these particular medical conditions to the list of debilitating medical conditions identified in the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MCL 333.26423). The approval or denial of the petitions by Edgerton are considered final department actions. Effective immediately, these eleven conditions are now added to the following current list of debilitating medical conditions already approved for medical marihuana in the state of Michigan:  Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Cancer Glaucoma Positive status for Human Immunodeficiency Virus Acquired Immune Deficiency

WORDS AND PHOTOS BY LAWRENCE VON EBELER

erhaps it sounds boring, but it’s never that. The Lakeside 4th of July parade sponsored by the Lakeside Association is not what you would expect in a parade; it’s better than fire engines and floats. Better, because it’s a compilation of kids, parents, grandpas and grandmas gathering each year for decades since 1969 to form a rare, simple, quaint, and true demonstration for our freedom of expression and way of life here in little ol’ Harbor Country. Some have attended this iconic parade from the very first, and are now in their 80’s and 90’s. There are kids on their bicycles decorated with flags, streamers, and crepe paper in their bicycle spokes, and puppies being pushed in decorated strollers. Participants don lots of flag colored hats, outfits and many wear costumes in red, white and blue. Participating marchers are motivated by nothing more than the the simple concept of having their very own parade with the focus just on them, with no bands, no fire engines, no motorcycles, and few floats (except for one or two toggled together by the parents and their kids). There are a few antique cars, and Debra and Al Taylor’s traditional yellow Jeep leading the parade, but no fire engines, fancy floats, motorcycles, nor sirens are tolerated in this parade. At the end of the parade there are children’s games and contests sponsored by the Association, led by the perennial Jan Tomecek in the children’s post-parade fun and games for 15 years. Her husband Frank earns his stripes by selling Lakeside Association T-Shirts for $15.00. Monies collected go toward their five One Thousand Dollar scholarships that are given each year to college-bound students from River Valley High School and Lakeside student residents. As the Lakeside T-shirts state: “Tradition Woven Into the Fabric.” Indeed, one can see that is true, and can easily say the Lakeside 4th of July Parade, is a parade that never changes, and never wants to.

ARENA sports

From the Bleachers COLUMN BY KURT MARGGRAF IN CHICAGO

I

traveled up to Minneapolis to watch a couple of my grandsons compete in their postseason baseball tournaments this weekend and I came away with a few thoughts that I want to share with

you. Before I get around to my general thoughts, please allow me to indulge myself with some personal observations. Both of my grandsons played very well, as did their teams, playing tough, hard, winning baseball. I witnessed four games and “my guys” won three of them. They batted wonderfully, one of them getting a walk off, game-ending hit. They drove in and scored runs. They fielded flawlessly, making all the plays possible. They pitched perfectly and with fine fielding behind him, with one of the boys closing out a game and being the winning pitcher. Most importantly, both boys exhibited a good knowledge of the game and were great sports and great teammates. Which made me proudest of all. Seeing four little league games in three days gave me a good feel for what is happening with youngsters and our national pastime. It seems like every year, you see or hear some parent, coach or player exhibiting poor sportsmanship. While I’m aware that this happens, let’s put it in perspective. There are over 2 million little leaguers worldwide. That’s an awful lot of people who are involved in playing, coaching, umpiring and parenting. The overwhelming majority of these people are great sports, cheering for their kids and their team, while offering congratulations to their opponents when they make good plays. I did not witness one person exhibit poor sportsmanship. On the contrary, I was impressed with everyone whom I came across and my faith in humanity began to be restored. So, I started thinking about how a few people’s words and actions affect the masses. There are a huge majority of good politicians out there. It’s hard for me to believe that I just said that, but it’s true. Countless people devote their lives to helping their communities be a better place to live. There are also some politicians who are corrupt, greedy and power hungry, and they are the ones we hear about all the time. I’m sure the same can be said for policemen, lawyers, salesmen and every other profession that is getting bad press. We have to start realizing that most of us are good, honest, hardworking people and we shouldn’t let the words and actions of a few have such a profound effect on us. My son thinks that a third political party, one that was more in the center, would go a long way toward bringing our country back together. He also thinks that term limits would weed out the corrupt and I believe he may be correct. Anyway, the next time someone does something stupid, remember that there are many, many people out there trying to do the right thing. Cory Booker said, “Small acts of decency ripple in ways we could never imagine.” Be careful out there. Make good choices. Keep smiling. Talk to you next week. Peace, love, and happiness.

We’re all brothers and sisters and we should treat everyone kindly no matter the situation? -The Applicant

School Board opposes new development, approves employment of PAC director

N

BY FRANCESCA SAGALA

ew Buffalo Area Schools Board of Education members approved a resolution opposing the construction of a manufactured home development at their Monday, July 9, meeting. The Harbor Crossing development would be located at the corner of Hoder and Maudlin roads in New Buffalo Township. Board members approved the resolution in a 5-1 vote, with trustee Lisa Werner being the dissenting vote. (Trustee Loren Croskey was absent.) Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Leslie said the development would have approximately 254 units. He said that, if they were an “in formula district,” he would approve of the development; however, currently, the district is out of formula. The district currently levies 18 mills on non-homestead property, which provides for a large percentage of its funding. Leslie said that manufactured home developments usually pay “very little” to the schools in taxes. Board President Chuck Heit concurred with him, adding that since the development was “basically” a trailer park, the person who owns that property would be paying very little in taxes. Leslie added that the district may not be able to “absorb” the possibly large influx of students that would come from such a development. He added that the district would need to hire more teachers, which could be costly for the district. Current classroom sizes may also be affected. The large number of students, combined with the fact that the district would be receiving no corresponding increase in revenue, led Leslie to feel the development would be “no benefit” to them. Werner questioned why they would oppose the development when board members had recently been discussing ways to attract more students to their district, such as by lowering the tuition rate. She also asked if they would be asked to pass a resolution approving or opposing every new development that entered the district. Heit explained that some members of the community were saying that the development would be positive for the district, which would be true if they were in formula. The resolution was stating that, in the school’s interests, it wouldn’t benefit them. He added that they also control the tuition rate, unlike with the scenario of a new development. Vice President Frank Magro added that, while they weren’t opposed to increasing their enrollment, they wanted to do it in a “timely manner” and not have it all “dumped in their lap all at one time,” leaving them to “scramble over” what to do with so many new students. Also at the meeting, board members approved the employment of Dwayne Whitmyer in the position of Performing Arts Center director. Whitmyer will be replacing Donn Edwards, who’s retiring after being the director since the middle/high school was built in 2001. Leslie said they had received approximately 15 applicants for the position. He added that Whitmyer was the current PAC director for Southwest Michigan College, and that he had done more than 150 shows. In addition, Leslie said Whitmyer had experience in audio and visuals, in building sets and with props, as well as a variety of information technology skills. Board members approved the employment of Kelsie Schutz as the 20182019 junior varsity volleyball coach, pending background clearance. Board members did a first reading of Board Policy 6150 – Tuition Income. Leslie reminded everyone of the new starting times for the upcoming school year. The elementary school start time would be pushed to 8:20 a.m. and the dismissal time would be 3:40 p.m. Meanwhile, the middle/ high school start time would be 8:30 a.m. and the dismissal time would be 3:50 p.m. The times were included in the new teacher’s contract, which was approved by the board in the spring.

SHOCKED IN POOL WHEN LIMB FALLS ON POWER LINE

F

irefighters and paramedics responded to an electrical scare involving a New Buffalo area woman reporting she was shocked in a swimming pool. According to the New Buffalo Township Fire Department, an ambulance from Medic 1 responded July 1 to the area of 11661 Marquette Dr. Upon arrival, a tree branch was spotted on some power lines at the lakefront location just east of the New Buffalo public beach. New Buffalo Township Fire Chief James Flick said the power lines were not broken nor were they touching the ground. But, somehow, responding units reported the unidentified woman swimming in the pool was shocked. She refused offers by paramedics for medical treatment at the scene but she had somebody from the residence take her to a local hospital, Flick said. Firefighters remained on the scene until crews with American Electric Power Company arrived and removed the tree branch. — STAN MADDUX

Warhol comes to the shore at Lubeznik Center

T

E

he Warhol Exhibit at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts was featured at a well-attended opening reception Friday, July 6. The Warhol: Icon & Influence will be on display through Oct. 13, 2018, in the Hyndman Gallery and promises to be a popular exhibit. Original Andy Warhol works are on loan from the Drew and Wendy Levenfeld private collection, as well as from the Brauer Museum’s permanent collection at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana. Warhol (1928-1987) is widely recognized as one of the most important artists of the 20th century. More than 50 original works will be on display, including a substantial collection of black and white photographs, Polaroids and large color screen prints that include the famous Campbell soup can and other iconic images, like The Moon Walk and Annie Oakley. The works on display will span from the late ‘60s through the late ‘80s of Warhol’s career. Warhol frequently used the Polaroid portraits he made for making his well-known large-scale screen prints. The community will have the opportunity to view these works and learn more about Warhol and his impact on the global art world. Much of his well-known subject matter of the mundane, such as the Campbell’s Soup Cans, was easily recognizable and accessible to the public, giving his work a democratic sensibility. The Art Story website states, “Andy Warhol was the most successful and highly paid commercial illustrator in New York even before he began to make art destined for galleries. Nevertheless, his screen-printed images of Marilyn Monroe, soup cans and sensational newspaper stories quickly became synonymous with pop art. He emerged from the poverty and obscurity of an eastern European immigrant family in Pittsburgh to become a charismatic magnet for bohemian New York and to ultimately find a place in the circles of high society. For many, his ascent echoes one of pop art’s ambitions: to bring popular styles and subjects into the exclusive salons of high art. His crowning achievement was the elevation of his own persona to the level of a popular icon, representing a new kind of fame and celebrity for a fine artist.” An invited group of emerging and mid-career artists whose work has been guided by Warhol’s legacy will also be on exhibition. Warhol employed many strategies in his artwork, which many contemporary artists utilize today in their art practices. An exploration of these strategies will be examined in several categories, such as celebrity, gender identity and popular culture. Artists on display will be: Christopher Cosnowski, Dominic Sansone, Robyn Day and CJ Hungerman. Exhibition Gallery and Gallery Shop hours of operation are weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. On Thursday, they are open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. (from Memorial Day to Labor Day). First Friday is a special artist reception from 5 until 8 p.m. All times are Central Standard Time. Admission is free, but a $3 donation is always appreciated. Lubeznik Center for the Arts is located at 101 W. Second St., Michigan City, Indiana. For information, call 219-874-4900. — COMPILED BY LINDA HENDERSON

he visiting mobile petting zoo and the children’s art interaction were both huge hits at the Thursday, July 5, New Buffalo Farmer’s Market. The line was long for children to get an opportunity to meet and greet the adorable farm pets brought to the market by Mary’s Country Critters in Gun Lake, Michigan. The friendly barnyard menagerie evoked “oohs” and “ahhs” as well as a few high-pitched screeches from the visiting children. The children were able to pet farm animals that many have never seen before, or certainly that many have not been able to touch and talk to up close. Welcoming everyone was Jennifer the donkey, Autumn the miniature horse, Quakers the Mallard duck, Red the rooster, a darling shiny black bunny rabbit, Sissy the mama goat with her two kids, Frosty and Forester and Baa Baa the soft, curly sheep. Sponsored by New Buffalo Township Library, the petting zoo was a part of the library’s summer reading program. Elsie Earl Studios also provided art opportunities for the budding young artists population. Children seemed to thoroughly enjoy the activities and offerings at the market this past week. Everyone is invited to enjoy fresh produce and fruit, bakery, crafts, jewelry, clothing, food, live music and camaraderie on the beautiful new North Whittaker Street every Thursday evening in downtown New Buffalo through Labor Day. The farmer’s market is sponsored by the New Buffalo Business Association.

Emergency blood shortage: Red Cross issues urgent call for blood donors

n emergency blood shortage is prompting the American Red Cross to issue an urgent call for eligible donors of all blood types – especially type O – to give now and help save lives. The Red Cross escalated its call for blood and platelet donors after a difficult Independence Day week for donations. More than 550 fewer blood drives were organized by businesses and other community groups last week than during a typical week as individuals across the country celebrated the holiday and enjoyed summer activities. This could equate to as many as 15,000 fewer donations than needed, causing donations to now be distributed to hospitals faster than they come in. “Each and every day, individuals across the country depend on blood and platelet donations for lifesaving treatments and emergency care, so it’s critical that people donate now to meet these needs,” said Cliff Numark, senior vice president, Red Cross Blood Services. “Whether you’ve never donated or give a couple of times a year, you’re needed to give as soon as possible to help save patient lives. Yours may be the donation a patient is counting on.” This need is especially critical for type O blood donors. Type O is the most in-demand blood type and often the first be depleted from hospital shelves during a shortage. Type O negative is the universal blood type and what emergency room personnel reach for when there is no time to determine the blood type of patients in the most serious situations. Type O positive is the most common blood type and can be transfused to Rh-positive patients of any blood type. To schedule an appointment to donate, use the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). The Red Cross has added about 6,500 additional appointment slots at donation centers and community blood drives across the country over the next few weeks to accommodate more donors. Donation appointments and completion of a RapidPass online health history questionnaire are encouraged to help reduce the time it takes to donate. Because of generous donors, the Red Cross is able to provide blood products for patients like 9-month-old Krew Anderson. Krew is a happy, laid-back baby boy. His wide grin frames two tiny teeth. He likes to play with balloons and just experienced his first boat ride and fireworks show, but Krew has faced more challenges in the last four months than many people will experience in a lifetime. In March, Krew was diagnosed with acute

myeloid leukemia, a type of cancer that causes bone marrow to produce a large number of abnormal blood cells. Since then, he has gone through four rounds of chemotherapy and received 15 blood and platelet transfusions to date. “The first time he got [a transfusion], I was just super nervous and didn’t know really what was happening,” said his mother, Stephanie Anderson. “Now, when he gets one, I’m like, ‘Yes, please, get him some blood to help him get more energy and back to normal.’” Krew’s father, Richard Anderson, donated blood a couple of times a year prior to his son’s diagnosis, but after seeing Krew receive blood, he now plans to give as soon as he’s eligible again. “For me, just knowing that if it happened to me, it can happen to anyone. I want to make sure there’s enough blood out there for everyone, and that there’s no shortage,” he said. Missing Types sees encouraging increase in new donors – all donors needed now Facing a decline of about 80,000 new Red Cross blood donors each year for the past several years, the Red Cross launched the Missing Types campaign in June to encourage new donors, and those who have not given recently, to donate blood. While the campaign has already inspired thousands of new donors to give, the Red Cross is now calling on all eligible blood and platelet donors to roll up a sleeve as soon as possible to overcome the emergency blood shortage. Through the Missing Types campaign, which runs throughout the summer, the letters A, B and O – letters used to identify blood types – disappeared from corporate logos, celebrity social media accounts and favorite websites to illustrate the critical role every blood donor plays in ensuring blood is never missing from hospital shelves.

Blueberry Picking Time

OPEN HOUSE

D

BY STAN MADDUX

ean Ott expects to have twice as many blueberries for people to pick as last year on his two farms outside New Buffalo near IndianaMichigan state line. The picking season just recently got underway at blueberry farms throughout Harbor Country. Ott has 52 acres at Stateline Blueberries at 9957 Frontage Rd. just off 1000 North three miles west of Indiana 39 in northern LaPorte County and at nearby Wilk’s Blueberry Farm along Indiana 39 a few hundred feet south of the Michigan line. He opened for picking June 29 or about 10 days behind his normal schedule. ‘’This cold, wet spring kind of put us behind.  We’re picking up steam, though,’’ Ott said. Ott doesn’t expect a bumper crop this season but said it’s probably above average and way better than last year which he called the worst in the 20-years he’s owned the farms. Pollination was much better this year from ideal weather between periods when it was a bit too cold and rainy, he said. Ott predicted 160,000 pounds of blueberries will come out of his fields this year or about 20,000 pounds more than a typical season. The yield from his bushes was 83,000 pounds in 2017. An excellent crop is also expected at Mike’s Blueberry Farm in New Buffalo Township at 11160 Farina Road. Mike Heibel has raised blueberries there for close to 40-years. His crop wasn’t quite ripe enough for picking by July 4th but should be prior to the the middle of the month. Heibel said he has mostly late season varieties and from what he can tell so far it should be one of his best seasons. ‘’It’s a good crop.  Excellent to great,’’ he said. Blueberry picking is something many families do together. For example, Al and Linda Anderson took their 16-year old granddaughter, Sarah, to Stateline Blueberries on July 3. It was their first experience at picking blueberries for the Chicago area people vacationing here for the week.  ‘’I love it.  It’s fun.  Nice and fresh blueberries,’’ Mrs. Anderson said. Heibel also didn’t have a very good crop last year.   He blamed much of his problems on a large population of locusts eating his blueberries. Initially, Heibel said he was worried about this year’s crop because of his blueberry bushes being dormant for an extended period from the long, cold spring.  But, once the weather returned to more normal conditions, ‘’the fruit started to really come out,’’ Heibel said.

arbor Country Hikers is joining forces with Chikaming Open Lands for the first installation of a uniform trail marking system at Robinson Woods Preserve on Saturday, July 14. The work on installing the signage begins at 10 a.m. as part of the COL stewardship day and HCH will be taking an inaugural trek down the newly marked trail beginning at noon.  Under the leadership of its president Pat Fisher, HCH has developed standards NG for a uniform trail marking system to be used on trails in and around Harbor ERY County with the cooperation of local governments and funding organizations.  On July 14, COL Executive Director Ryan Postema will have the needed tools and materials for the beta installation.  “The trail markers include more than just arrows and after learning how to *317933* navigate one trail, you’ll be willing and able to try them all,” Fisher said.  The system includes access signs with maps and trail rules, trail markings and QR Codes with website support, all with an element of built-in safety. Robinson Woods is at 8016 East Rd., Three Oaks, between Red Arrow Highway and Three Oaks Road.  Harbor Country Hikers is a 501c3 organization formed in Spring 2017 as a recreation and learning resource to complement the area’s parks and preserves through trail stewardship and education about local geology, history and plant and animal life. Although membership is encouraged, the events are open to all and children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Membership is $20 for individuals or $30 for families. For further information about HCH or to request a membership form, visit harborcountryhikers.com. — STAFF REPORTS DINE IN • CARRYOUT • CATERING EVENT SPACE • GOURMET GROCERY DOWNTOWN THREE OAKS

Registration closes July 31 for annual Labor Day bike ride

B

icyclists have approximately one month left to register for the annual DALMAC bike ride: The Dick Allen Lansing to MACkinaw bike tour, sponsored by the Tri-County Bicycle Association (TCBA). This year’s DALMAC offers five-, four-, three- and two-day route options. Traditional routes start from East Lansing, with cyclists heading north over five or four days to reach Mackinaw City.  Riders camp at high schools along the way, using locker room shower facilities and cafeterias for dinners and breakfasts. Those interested in riding fewer miles can still experience DALMAC with threeor two-day options that hook up with riders making their way north. “The DALMAC is great for anyone interested in a first-time multi-day ride,” said Joel Wickham, DALMAC tour director.   “Seasoned DALMAC riders are tremendously supportive.  Many friendships have started as a result of this ride.” This year, all routes will end in Mackinaw City.  Plans are underway to make this year’s finish big and exciting. Among the different routes, riders will be overnighting in: Alma, Boyne City, Cheboygan, Elk Rapids, Gladwin, Grayling, McBain, Petoskey and Vestaburg.  Information regarding routes and how to register can be found at dalmac.org.  DALMAC is an entirely volunteer-run event, with proceeds going to the TCBA and the DALMAC Fund.  The DALMAC Fund provides grants to promote and improve bicycling throughout Michigan. — STAFF REPORTS

LINDA HENDERSON IN NEW BUFFALO TOWNSHIP

he Pokagon-New Buffalo Local Revenue Sharing Board held a brief meeting on Tuesday morning, July 10 in order to review Specific Actual Cost (SAC) request from the eligible municipalities. The requests are due to the board by August 1, 2018. To-date no requests were received from any of the entities. Township Clerk Judy Zabicki, who was sitting in for member Pete Rahm, stated that the New Buffalo Township will submit a request for the Maudlin Booster station, as they do each year. The delay in the application is because they are awaiting for the final utility costs for the month of June. It was reported that all of the 4029 tax forms were submitted from the municipalities that receive reimbursement for Payment In Lieu of Taxes (PILT). Those that receipt PILT are: New Buffalo Public Schools, New Buffalo Township, Berrien County, Berrien County (RESA), Lake Michigan College (LMC) and New Buffalo Township Public Library. The PILT payments represent 65% of the funds distributed, after the SAC awards. The Four Winds Casino is located within New Buffalo Township on Pokagon Tribal sovereign land and they do not pay property tax. The Pokagon Band agreed to make Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) annually to governmental bodies that would have benefited from assessed taxes on that property prior to their ownership. The total distribution comes from two percent of the “net winnings” derived from the electronic games at the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, not including Promotional Free Play revenues. In 2017, The Pokagon-New Buffalo Area Local Revenue Sharing Board distributed $4,517,860.17 to the local communities on Friday, October 13, 2017. Through 2017, the LRSB has distributed $54,990,969.25 from Four Winds New Buffalo Casino revenue sharing funds to the municipalities. This total does not including The Pokagon Fund distributions, which is a separate non-for-profit organization, who are also supported by revenue from the Four Winds Casino-New Buffalo. The next meeting of the LRSB is Tuesday, August 14 at 8:30 a.m. at New Buffalo Township Hall.

HOR0SCOPE JULY 12-18, 2018

AS INTERPRETED BY SANDY “STAR” BENDT ARIES MARCH 21—APRIL 19 Don’t get discouraged if you need rework some creative ideas this week. Career and public relations will work well together regardless of previous pitfalls. The important thing is to lead and direct others while being part of the team at the same time. All the hard work will start to pay off now.

LIBRA SEPTEMBER 23—OCTOBER 22 You will need to step it up this week and take control of situations at work. Work or career goals could easily be put on the back burner to go have fun with friends, but if you just stick with projects and see them through to completion you will have a much better time at the beach.

TAURUS

It’s time to clear the air and confront any issues you have with others directly. Be open and honest. Don’t lie or halftruth to please others. There is no shame in the truth. There is no reason to be mad. The truth stands regardless. Get it off your chest and go enjoy a day at the beach.

SCORPIO OCTOBER 23—NOVEMBER 21 Authority figures may not totally get all your creative ideas, but they will be open to trying new things if you present it right. So, take some extra time when drafting your proposals. You will have a definite wander lust this week and won’t feel like putting in any extra time, but it will be worth it.

GEMINI MAY 21—JUNE 21 This is a great time to start a new budget or financial plan. If you are thinking of investing in real-estate or changing residence be sure you talk things over thoroughly with partners and double check any information you receive from experts. There is a possibility of confusion here.

SAGITTARIUS NOVEMBER 22—DECEMBER 21 There is a lot of fear around being dependable this week. Whether you are counting on someone else or are going out of your normal routine to help someone, there will be a sense of uneasiness. Be sure to call first or remind people so you don’t get let down.

CANCER JUNE 22—JULY 22 You may feel a bit overpowered or imposed upon this week and it’s important to be more assertive. Being assertive doesn’t mean defensive. It means sticking up for your own best interest. Any conversations you have should go well, so be up front about your limits.

CAPRICORN DECEMBER 22—JANUARY 19 Guard against feeling overly responsible for everything this week. There is a good chance you are taking on way too much of other people’s responsibilities and overextending yourself. Look at situations honestly and don’t get overly emotional about it or too involved.

LEO JULY 23—AUGUST 22 This is a very productive and opportune time for you. The important thing is to not get caught up in the idea that your work doesn’t hold real value. There seems to be a possibility of self-sabotage this week. Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you’ll still end up in the stars.

AQUARIUS JANUARY 20—FEBRUARY 18 The vibrations coming your way are very slow and methodical, which could not be more boring. Also, it will be hard to get projects off the ground this week. This is a better time for gathering supplies or doing research. Taking a nice afternoon nap may also be in order.

VIRGO AUGUST 23—SEPTEMBER 22 Friends will bring out your emotional side this week and you may come to understand that most of your social fears or anxieties are unfounded. But relationship issues will be the thing that seems to sabotage your sense of self the most now. Be honest with yourself and others.

PISCES FEBRUARY 19—MARCH 20 The Lunar vibes coming at you now will spark your creative and romantic sides. This is a great time to go out and mingle. If attached spend some time with your someone special at the blueberry patch. If single hit the beach and the space next to you will be occupied soon.

APRIL 20—MAY 20
