Police funding affects us Governor’s proposal for ‘Smart Justice’ has upside for rural communities Brandon Hubbard (231) 439-9374 - bhubbard@petoskeynews.com

Governor Rick Snyder wants to crack down on crime in the state’s four most violent cities, but while most of the cash and focus is going to Detroit, Flint, Pontiac and Saginaw, the proposed package could impact rural Michigan areas as well. In 2011, the Michigan State Police force across Northern Michigan was largely restructured to a more mobile force to save on the costs of operating brick and mortar facilities. Local law enforcement is

now hopeful the governor’s proposal will help provide additional man power and critical programs to combat drugs in Norther n Michigan. The governor’s proposal calls for a new class of 180 troopers to be held this summer. The gover nor first announced his plan to lower crime in Flint, Detroit, Saginaw and Pontiac — which the FBI has ranked in its top 10 most violent cities — during his State of the State speech earlier this year. But, local law enforcement is hope-

When passersby stick their heads into Grant Dittmar’s place of business and ask if he knows what time it is, they’re sometimes doing so as a joke. Stocking about 700 timepieces in his Dittmar’s Chronotech store in downtown Petoskey, Dittmar has noticeably more sources of this information at his disposal than many people do. “As you can imagine, I get all the time jokes,” he said. He’ll be especially aware of the current time in the coming days, as daylight saving time arrives and necessitates the resetet ting of many of Chronotech’s 200 or so clocks.

Year-round carriage rides in Harbor ? Morgan Sherburne (231) 439-9394 - msherburne@petoskeynews.com

HARBOR SPRINGS — Harbor Springs horsed r aw n c a r r i a g e r i d e s might soon become a year-round offering. Scott Ward, with Ward Family Carriage Rides, and Karin Offield, owner of Brek-n-Ridge Farm in Harbor Springs, had the idea to offer free carriage rides through downtown Harbor Springs. “ We w a n t e d t o h e l p draw people to Harbor Springs in the wintertime,” said Ward, who owns the car riage and team of horses. Recently, people have come from Charlevoix, East Jordan and Indian River, he said. And now, Ward and Offield are looking to extend the rides on a fare basis. “The council wanted to continue to consider h o r s e - d r aw n c a r r i a g e rides even though city code prohibits them right now,” said Tom Richards,

Autism bill clears Senate

LANSIN (AP) — The Michigan Senate soon could vote on bills aimed at requiring insurance companies to cover some types of treatment for autism. The Senate’s Health Policy Committee on Thursday approved a bipartisan package of bills related to autism coverage, sending the bills to the Senate floor. They go to the House if the Senate passes them. One bill sets up a fund to help reimburse insurers for paid claims related to diagnosis and treatment of autism. That provision is included in hopes of lessening opposition from business and insurance groups. Previous efforts to mandate autism coverage have stalled in Michigan. More than half the states require insurers to provide autism coverage. Gov. Rick Snyder says it’s time for Michigan to join them.

Ice shanty Safety drill this weekend removal dates set

On Saturday, March 10, the Petoskey Department of Public Safety will conduct a simulated fire rescue drill at the

former Lockwood MacDonald building on Arlington Avenue in Petoskey. During the exercise, smoke,

emergency personnel, firefighting equipment and simulated rescues may be visible to the public.

The Department of Natural Resources reminds anglers that the dates for mandatory ice shanty removal are approaching. Anglers are required to remove shanties as soon as the ice is unsafe to hold them, regardless of the date. In the northern Lower Peninsula, ice shanties need to be removed by midnight on March 15. Counties included in the northern Lower Peninsula are: Alcona, Alpena, Antrim, Arenac, Bay, Benzie, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Clare, Crawford, Emmet, Gladwin, Grand Traverse, Iosco, Isabella, Kalkaska, Lake, Leelanau, Manistee, Mason, Mecosta, Midland, Missaukee, Montmorency, Newaygo, Oceana, Ogemaw, Osceola, Oscoda, Otsego, Presque Isle, Roscommon and Wexford. In remaining counties of the souther n Lower Peninsula, shanties were to be removed by midnight on March 1. Shanties placed on Michigan-Wisconsin boundary waters must be removed by midnight on March 15. In the Upper Peninsula, shanties must be removed by midnight on March 31. After mandatory removal dates, shanties may be placed on the ice on a daily basis, but must be removed at the end of each day’s fishing activity. Shanty owners who allow the structures to fall through the ice are subject of penalties of up to 30 days in jail, fines (of not less than $100 or more than $500) or both. If a shanty is removed by a government agency, the court can require the owner to reimburse the government for an amount of up to three times the cost of removal.

Woman killed snowmobiling

GRAYLING TOWNSHIP, (AP) — Authorities say a 72-year-old woman from Brighton has died following a snowmobile rollover in the northern Lower Peninsula. The Crawford County sheriff ’s department says the woman was riding Thursday evening with another person near Camp Grayling in Grayling Township, about 45 miles east of Traverse City. The department says she was trying to climb a steep hill with the snowmobile when it rolled, landing on top of her. She was taken to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her name wasn’t immediately released. The crash was under investigation.

Evicted 101-year-old closer to going back home

DETROIT (AP) — The federal government says a 101-year-old Detroit woman who was evicted last year from her foreclosed house is getting closer to being allowed to move home. The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Thursday that work to fix up Texana Hollis’ will begin shortly. Hollis says she’s “overjoyed” by the news. She’s currently living with a caregiver nearby. Hollis was evicted Sept. 12 and her belongings placed outside after her 65-year-old son failed to pay property taxes linked to a reverse mortgage and HUD foreclosed on the home. Two days later, the department said she could return. But that didn’t happen because HUD said the home was unsanitary and unsafe. Hollis had lived at the home about 60 years.

Group wants corporate donors to be revealed

LANSING (AP) — A Michigan group began collecting signatures Thursday for a ballot measure requiring far more disclosure of corporate donations so voters can see who’s making unlimited gifts to special interest groups. The Corporate Accountability Amendment would change the state constitution to require corporations as well as any group receiving corporate donations to identify who gave the money. A 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling enabled corporations and other well-financed donors to give unlimited money to political committees that don’t directly work with campaigns. The decision has resulted in political action committees known as super PACs pouring millions of dollars into the 2012 presidential race. Later court and government rulings have given the groups even more latitude by allowing donors to make unlimited donations with minimal disclosure requirements. Former Democratic secretary of state candidate Jocelyn Benson, who now heads the Michigan Center for Election Law at Wayne State University, is co-chairwoman of the effort to get the measure on the November ballot. Backers have until July 9 to collect the required 322,609 signatures. They say they’re aiming to collect 450,000. “It’s important to be able to see where the money is coming from,” Benson said. “Citizens know instinctively when their voices are being drowned out.” Michigan Republican Party spokesman Matt Frendewey said he can’t comment on the issue until the proposal’s language is known. “We would like to hear specifics, but so far nothing exists,” he said after Benson unveiled the measure at a Capitol news conference. “It was all rhetoric.”

Live from London

PBS makes this ‘Phantom’ phan’s day Babette Stenuis Stolz (231) 439-9351-bstenuis@petoskeynews.com

I

’m not a fan of television and don’t watch the reality shows or the weekly dramas and sitcoms many live for from week to week. I find most of the offerings on TV a waste of valuable time, but one recent show had me glued to the big black box for three hours, even enjoying the commercial breaks. Thank goodness my sister called Sunday evening to tell me to turn on my TV, or I would have missed three hours of pure enchantment — “The Phantom of the Opera” at London’s Royal Albert Hall starring the awesome voices of Ramin Karimloo as The Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine, along with a cast and orchestra of more than 200. This fullystaged televised version of what I consider the greatest show of my lifetime appeared on PBS’s Great Performances. “Great,”

Babette Stenuis Stolz indeed; thank-you, PBS. I’ve seen “Phantom of the Opera” on stage four times ... albeit at less grand venues ... and never, ever tire of the story or the music ... oh, the music! ... “Angel of Music,” “The Music of the Night,” “All I Ask of You,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Think of Me,” “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again,” “Masquerade,” “The Point of No Return,” etc. etc. ... We have none other than Andrew Lloyd Webber to thank for these endearing lyrics and hypnotic melodies. I was in awe of every scene, every special effect and every song performed in the sumptuous Victorian splendor of London’s

Royal Albert Hall. Even the regular breaks for public TV fundraising were entertaining, and a good place to catch my breath. The PBS special was a celebration of Broadway’s longestrunning production’s 25th anniversary. According to broadwayworld. com, on Oct. 2, 2011, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and producer Cameron Mackintosh marked the 25th anniversary of their beloved musical extravaganza, “The Phantom of the Opera,” with a lavishly staged production at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall that was beamed live via satellite to cinemas across the globe. The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall marks the

first time a live performance of the blockbuster musical has been made available for home viewing. Curtain call And, if this theatrical spectacle wasn’t enough, the final curtain call was followed by a special appearance by the man behind the music, Andrew Lloyd Webber himself, who introduced his “angel of music,” Sarah Brightman, and Michael Crawford, the original Christine and Phantom when the show opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London on Oct. 9, 1986. Viewers were treated to Brightman singing the hauntingly beautiful “Music of the Night.” To top off an already outstanding evening, Webber

then proudly introduced past Phantoms, Peter Jöback, John Owen-Jones, Anthony Warlow and Colm Wilkinson. These male vocal powerhouses were joined by Karimloo as they commanded Brightman to “Sing for Me, My Angel!” in a moving rendition of “Phantom of the Opera” that brought tingling goosebumps to every part of my body as Brightman hit those preciously, perfect high notes. This three-hour special was a fitting tribute to a quarter century of extraordinary success of “The Phantom of the Opera.” Every single minute of the time I spent in front of the television Sunday night was time well spent. Who says there’s never anything on TV worth watching? In case you missed it, “The Phantom of the Opera” at London’s Royal Albert Hall is scheduled for rebroadcast 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 14, at the local PBS television station — WMCU-TV.

Obama vs. Israel Priority No. 1? Stop Israel

Our View

THANK YOU, ONE AND ALL F or many, it was kind of like waiting for Santa Claus to arrive on Christmas morning. Last week, after Mother Nature dumped 18 inches of snow across Northern Michigan and knocked out power to tens of thousands across the state, including several thousand in Charlevoix and Emmet counties, it was the utility workers that many anxiously waited to arrive. It’s not often we have a storm of this magnitude in Northern Michigan. But it is a reminder of just how much we depend on each other when the going gets tough. Crews from both Great Lakes Energy and Consumers Energy brought in helping hands from across the Midwest to help get the lights back on as soon as possible. Yes, it did take time, and many were without power for more than six days. While it took time, and lives were disrupted during the wait, it’s unrealistic to think that these power companies can have this type of manpower

on the payroll all the time since these extreme situations are uncommon. With that said, we’re thankful for all those who stepped in and worked for days, many hours at a time, to help us get back to our routine. To the road crews who were out sanding and salting, clearing fallen trees and limbs, and making sure we could get from point A to point B — thank you. And then there was the overwhelming generosity that poured from every community. Neighbors helped neighbors dig out of their homes. Those lucky enough to have electricity opened their doors for friends. And area businesses, such as hotels and restaurants, offered discounts on meals and rooms for those looking for a warm meal and bed. Shelters also opened their doors. Sue Gengle of Charlevoix recorded a 28-inch snowfall at her home on Klooster Road in Charlevoix. And she credits her neighbor, Nate Klooster,

for making sure those living along the road were safe. Gengle said Klooster walked in knee deep snow 120 yards to his barn where he turned on his tractor and headed to house after house to make sure everyone had a safe exit route. Because of his actions, many of his neighbors were able to get to their jobs. “Yes, great things happen because of a 28 inch snow fall in 12 hours — in a good, neighborly way,” Gengle said. This was just one good samaritan story. We know there were hundreds more just like it that took place in the aftermath of this March storm. So to all of those who lent a hand to help to make sure we could get where we needed to go, and make sure we were safe and warm, thank you. Let’s just hope March goes out like a lamb.

This, 14 months after the last group-of-six negotiations collapsed in Istanbul because of blatant Iranian stalling and unseriousness. Nonetheless, the new negotiations will be both without precondition and preceded by yet more talks to decide such trivialities as venue. These negotiations don’t just gain time for a nuclear program about whose military intent the IAEA is issuing alarming warnings. They make it extremely difficult for Israel to do anything about it (while it still can), lest Israel be universally condemned for having aborted a diplomatic solution. If the administration were serious about achievement rather than appearance, it would have warned that this was the last chance for Iran to come clean and would have demanded a short timeline. After all, President Obama insisted on deadlines for the Iraq withdrawal, the Afghan surge and IsraeliPalestinian negotiations. Why leave these crucial talks openended when the nuclear clock is ticking? This re-engagement comes immediately after Obama’s campaign-year posturing about Iran’s nukes. Sunday in front of AIPAC, he warned that “Iran’s leaders should have no doubt about the resolve of the United States.” This just two days after he’d said (to the Atlantic) of possible U.S. military action, “I don’t bluff.” Yet on Tuesday he returns to the very engagement policy that he admits had previously failed. Won’t sanctions make a difference this time, however? Sanctions are indeed hurting Iran economically. But when Obama’s own director of national intelligence was asked by the Senate intelligence committee whether sanctions had any effect on the course of Iran’s nuclear program, the answer was simple: No. None whatsoever. Obama garnered much AIPAC applause by saying that his is not a containment policy

but a prevention policy. But what has he prevented? Keeping a coalition of six together is not success. Holding talks is not success. Imposing sanctions is not success. Success is halting and reversing the program. Yet Iran is tripling its uranium output, moving enrichment facilities deep under a mountain near Qom and impeding IAEA inspections of weaponization facilities. So what is Obama’s real objective? “We’re trying to make the decision to attack as hard as possible for Israel,” an administration official told the Washington Post in the most revealing White House admission since “leading from behind.” Revealing and shocking. The world’s greatest exporter of terror (according to the State Department), the systematic killer of Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan, the self-declared enemy that invented “Death to America Day” is approaching nuclear capability — and the focus of U.S. policy is to prevent a democratic ally threatened with annihilation from preempting the threat? Indeed it is. The new openended negotiations with Iran fit well with this strategy of tying Israel down. As does Obama’s “I have Israel’s back” reassurance, designed to persuade Israel and its supporters to pull back and outsource to Obama what for Israel are life-anddeath decisions. Yet 48 hours later, Obama tells a news conference that this phrase is just a historical reference to supporting such allies as Britain and Japan — contradicting the intended impression he’d given AIPAC that he was offering special protection to an ally under threat of physical annihilation. To AIPAC he declares that “no Israeli government can tolerate a nuclear weapon in the See KRAUTHAMMER on PAGE A5

Much obliged Heart-felt thank you Editor: Brother Dan’s Food Pantry would like to sincerely thank all of our sponsors, bands, volunteers and all who attended our third annual Brother Dan’s Have A Heart Benefit on Feb. 12, held at the Emmet County Fairgrounds Community Building. They all came together in full force and offered tremendous support for a very worthy cause to help the less fortunate in our area. It is so rewarding to see all the hard work come

to fruition, and turn out to be so much fun in the end. It is even more rewarding to know the shelves at the pantry will be filled with foods needed to help the less fortunate in our area. The only way this comes about is the hard work by all of the wonderful volunteers that take the time from their own lives to make all of this come together. Our volunteers work tirelessly to create an event to remember, and they are a terrific crew! They don’t come better! Please look for our advertisement in today’s paper with a full list of

hands of a regime that denies the Holocaust, threatens to wipe Israel off the map, and sponsors terrorist groups committed to Israel’s destruction� and affirms “Israel’s sovereign right to make its own decisions ... to meet its security needs.� And then he pursues policies — open-ended negotiations, deceptive promises of tough U.S. backing for Israel, boasts about the efficacy of sanctions, grave warnings about “war talk� — meant, as his own official admitted, to stop Israel from exercising precisely that sovereign right to

self-protection. Yet beyond these obvious contradictions and walk-backs lies a transcendent logic: As with the Keystone pipeline postponement, as with the debt-ceiling extension, as with the Afghan withdrawal schedule, Obama wants to get past Nov. 6 without any untoward action that might threaten his re-election. For Israel, however, the stakes are somewhat higher: the very existence of a vibrant nation and its 6 million Jews. The asymmetry is stark. A fair-minded observer might judge that Israel’s desire to not go

gently into the darkness carries higher moral urgency than the political future of one man, even if he is president of the United States.

Child Abuse Council receives $1,500 grant from Petoskey/Harbor Springs Community Foundation The Child Abuse Council serving Charlevoix and Emmet counties received a grant for $1,500 from the Petoskey/Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation to support its spring conference on children’s health as it relates to nutrition and physical activity. The Petoskey/Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation awarded the money through the Maude and Gorton Milliken Fund. The grant money will assist the council with keynote

speaker expenses, a book give away and conference scholarships. The child abuse council’s spring conference focuses on issues regarding the mental and physical wellbeing of children. This year’s topic was chosen directly from suggestions by last year’s conference attendees. Break-out sessions at the conference will touch on subjects such as helping kids with diabetes succeed, the stigma of obesity, and linking exercise with aca-

demic achievement. The one-day conference is open to the public. Additionally, the conference will provide continuing education credits to area nurses, teachers and social workers who work directly with local youth.

Petoskey trophy shop will celebrate 30th anniversary in spring Stephanie Stelk Staff Writer

The Trophy Case, based in Petoskey, is g etting ready to celebrate its 30th anniversary this spring. Doug Piehl, a lifelong Petoskey resident and founder of The Trophy Case, opened its first set of doors in April 1982. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being involved in sports all his life, Doug saw a need for an awards and engraving store in Petoskey,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Piehl, Dougâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son and the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current owner. Beginning at a Mitchell Street location, then moving to different Howard Street locations, the Trophy Case is now fir mly planted at 610 W. Sheridan St. With just three employees â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Doug, Mike, and

Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife Nancy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this family-owned and operated business is Petoskeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest-running engraving and trophy business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are other stores in Northern Michigan that do what we do, but not for as long as we have. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen them come and go over the years,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Piehl. The main products The Trophy Case produces are awards, trophies, plaques and engraving services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also do name tags, interior and exterior signage, rubber stamps, vinyl graphics, glass engraving, promotional products, medals, ribbons and more,â&#x20AC;? said Piehl. Through the years, the business has evolved by adding new technologies, products and machinery in order to fit clients needs.

STEPHANIE STELK/NEWSď&#x161;şREVIEW

The staff at The Trophy Case in Petoskey includes (from left) Doug, Nancy and Mike Piehl. When Mike Piehl first joined the business in 1999, The Trophy Case added a laser engraving machine

and a second shortly after in order to keep up with product demands. Later, to expand the busi-

ness further, a vinyl cutter and sublimation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; full color transfer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were added to supplement their sign business and allow for the creation of mugs, mouse pads, photos on metal and multi-color name tags. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About three years ago, we upgraded our rotary eng raving services by purchasing a new machine. This does a lot of out metal engraving and can do cups and bowls,â&#x20AC;? said Piehl. In tough economic times, the shop has faced some challenges, because customers havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the budgets they did earlier. Even so, T he T rophy Case has a dedicated customer base, which helps the shop continue to thrive and expand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A majority of our cus-

tomer base is repeat â&#x20AC;Ś we build trust and confidence in our customers that their order will be done correctly and on time, every time,â&#x20AC;? said Piehl. Piehl added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A g reat deal of pride goes into our work and good communication is important for a lasting customer relationship.â&#x20AC;? The 30th anniversary of the Trophy Case happens to also fall during one of their busiest times of the year, which makes Piehl optimistic for what the future holds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our future looks very bright â&#x20AC;Ś many new products become available every year, giving our customers a lot of affordable options. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very open to new technology in the awards industry,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Maker of Fender guitars files for $200 million initial public offering

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; An instrumental piece of rock and roll history is going public. Fender Musical Instruments Corp., the maker of legendary guitars strummed by the likes of Buddy Holly, Jimmy Hendrix and Eric Clapton, filed papers Thursday for a $200 million initial public offering. Founded in 1946 by Leo Fender, the company created the Telecaster and Stratocaster guitars in the 1950s. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strat,â&#x20AC;? played by Hendrix, went on sale in 1954. It had a sturdy, allwood body that could stand

up to repeated abuse, making it popular in the rock and roll world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fender brand in particular is closely associated with the birth of rock 'n roll and has a strong legacy in music and in popular culture,â&#x20AC;? the company said in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In its filing with the SEC, Fender said it's the country's biggest seller of electric, acoustic and bass guitars. It also makes amplifiers and other instruments including banjos, ukuleles and mandolins, and sells instruments under other brands such as

Squier, Jackson, Guild, Ovation and Latin Percussion. The classic Strat and Telecaster models are still made today, with prices ranging from a couple hundred dollars for a basic model to several thousand dollars for high-end and custom versions. Fender has been through several owners before its push to the public markets. In 1965, Leo Fender sold the company to broadcaster CBS Inc., which sold it to an investor group 20 years later. P r iv a t e e q u i t y f i r m Weston Presidio now owns 43 percent of Fender. Its

distributor in Japan, Yamano Music, holds the No. 2 stake with 14 percent of the company. Launching the IPO will help the company pay down its debt load of $246.2 million. Fender said it plans to use about $100 million of the IPO's proceeds to repay debt, with money left over for working capital. With sales in 85 countries, Fender said revenue could get a boost from growing interest in guitarbased music from emerging markets like China, India and Indonesia. But it warned that increasing popularity of other types

of music, such as rap or house, could hurt demand for its guitars. Guitars and amps make up nearly three-quarters of its sales. I n r e c e n t ye a r s, t h e Scottsdale, Ariz.-based company's guitars have been used by musicians from Bruno Mars to Shakira. The company plans to trade the shares under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;FNDRâ&#x20AC;? symbol on the Nasdaq, but didn't say how many shares the company and its shareholders intend to sell or set a price target on its stock. It also didn't say when it plans to go public.

With the overall stock market now trending up, the conditions for an IPO are improving and investors are looking upon the offerings more favorably. In recent weeks, several companies, mostly in the technology and Internet sector, have made splashes in their Wall Street debuts. Fender said it posted net income attributable to common stockholders of $3.2 million in 2011, from a net loss of $17.3 million the year before. Revenue grew 13 percent to $700.6 million from $617.8 million. J.P. Morgan and William Blair are managing the IPO.

Badger chugs into the harbor after a 60-mile voyage across Lake Michigan from Manitowoc, Wis. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cherished ritual in Ludington, and its days may be numbered. The Badger, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s l a s t wo rk i n g c o a l - f i re d steamship, is under orders from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to stop dumping waste ash into the lake. Coal ash contains low concentrations of arsenic, mercury and other heavy metals, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not classified as hazardous. The ferry discharges more than 500 tons during a typical season from May to October, and operators say thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no quick fix. If the standoff isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resolved, the Badger could be grounded â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a disheartening prospect in its home port of Ludington, which takes pride in its maritime history as do many Great Lakes coastal towns. The ship is also important to the economy, employing about 200 during sailing season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rooted deep in this community,â&#x20AC;? said Fay, 64, whose father, like those of his closest boyhood pals, was a ferry crewman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Badger is the last of its kind. I just hate the idea of losing it.â&#x20AC;? Up and down the shorelines, relics of history draw tourists by evoking nostalgia for a simpler time. The clip-clop of horses pulling carriages is a familiar

been part of their lives and their experience of being here in Ludington,â&#x20AC;? Mayor John Henderson said. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always easy to keep one foot in the past while meeting modern standards. Regulators four years ago gave Lake Michigan Carferry, which runs the Badger, until this December to change its ash disposal method or fuel type. The company says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working on a switch to natural gas but needs more time to retrofit the craft, which launched in 1953. Senior chief engineer Charles Cart says it could take up to five years. Lake Michigan Carferry insists thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little if any har m from the coal ash, which is mixed with water to form slurry and piped overboard. It says an EPAcertified lab found the material is hundreds of times below hazardous levels. Tinka Hyde, water division chief with EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chicago regional office, said the agency has questions about the tests and will review the Badgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s application for an extension. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they want to continue to operate, they will need to be in compliance with the Clean Water Act,â&#x20AC;? Hyde said. Environmentalists say the contaminants add up over time. And supporters of a rival company say the Badger shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect special treatment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting almost 8,000 pounds of ash a day into Lake Michigan,â&#x20AC;? said Steve Warmington, mayor of Muskegon, a city 60 miles south where a diesel-powered ferryboat called the Lake Express is based. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way in the world you can convince

sound on car-free Mackinac Island. In Saugatuck, a hand-drawn chain ferry dating from shortly after Michigan gained statehood in 1837 still traverses the Kalamazoo River. The village of Leland has â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fishtown,â&#x20AC;? a tiny remnant of a commercial fishing village featuring weather-beaten shacks, smokehouses and charter boats. The Badger, a stout vessel with a wide smokestack and an open-air bow popular with sunbathers, is all that remains of a ferry fleet that hauled railcars across the lake for more than a century. Most of the boats met a sad ending in scrapyards by the late 1980s. The Badger survived when an entrepreneur refurbished it for leisure travel.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rooted deep in this community. The Badger is the last of its kind. I just hate the idea of losing it.â&#x20AC;? Jim Fay, son of a ferryman The 410-foot ship now has dining areas and a movie lounge as well as many original features, including a mechanism that allows the captain to transmit orders to engineers below decks by moving brass levers on a dial. Rates vary, but a one-way trip for a family of four and their vehicle comes to about $200. Many townspeople are relatives or friends of former crew members. Others have fond memories of riding the ferries with parents or grandparents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Badger has always

me thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the lake.â&#x20AC;? Badger backers say the Muskegon mayor wants to scuttle a competitor, which he denies. In Ludington, businesses say grounding the Badger would be devastating. It hauls about 100,000 passengers and 30,000 vehicles a year, and many riders stay around long enough to shop, dine or stay overnight. A study by West Shore Com-

munity College near Ludington said the ferry pumps $35 million a year into the economy. Motel owner David Bourgette figures heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d lose 25 percent of his customers without the Badger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I care about our lake. But the carferry isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing that much damage,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If there was one dinosaur left, would we kill it off just because it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mixing in

just right?â&#x20AC;? A large, hand-painted Badger mural decorates the outside wall of Jerry and Sally Coleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown antique shop, where ferry memorabilia are on display in glass cases â&#x20AC;&#x201D; placemats, playing cards, matchbooks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a slew of people who collect these things,â&#x20AC;? Sally Cole said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows how much the Badger means to the area.â&#x20AC;?

Sister makes terrible traveling companion Dear Annie: My niece, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tricia,â&#x20AC;? and I have always been close. Her mother (my sister) had a very traumatic life, and I often came to the rescue to be sure my niece was fed and protected. Tricia is now grown with two adult children and a fabulous home in Arizona. She has reunited with her first childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father after 17 years. They have decided to get married. My sister is jealous of my relationship with Tricia, although I have tried not to overstep. Now Tricia wants me to fly out and help her plan her wedding and select her gown. Twice, I have tried to visit her with my sister, but Sis does not do well in airports. Both times, she caused a scene. The first time, she refused to give up her cigarette lighter and yelled that it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a bomb. You can imagine how well that went over. The second time, she was so drunk, she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand up. So how do Tricia and I enjoy this time without including my sister? I know how important it is for her to be part of the planning, but I

cannot put myself through her raving dysfunction a third time. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to destroy my relationship Annieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with my sisMailbox ter. How do I handle this? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Auntie and Sister Dear Auntie: Your sister seems to be doing a pretty good job of wrecking her own relationships without any assistance from you. Her acting out at the airport may, in fact, be purposeful. Tell your sister you are going to Arizona and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like her to be there, but you will not travel on the same plane. Offer to pick her up at the airport when she gets in. If she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up, be sure to include her by emailing or texting photos of the dresses as you are looking at them. Call for her opinion on whatever plans you are making. Her level of participation is entirely up to her.

What Makes a Good Parent?

HARBOR SPRINGS

Censorship in today’s media Tabitha Jakeway Maggie Kane Harbor Springs High School

HARBOR SPRINGS — We are instantly drawn to the forbidden fruit, whatever its form. Maybe this is what drives us to watch Jersey Shore, read J.D. Salinger and listen to Eminem. Entire shows on TV are peppered with “bleeps.” Books are being removed from schools across the country. Whatever happened to the First Amendment? Did it just fade away with changes in political correctness? “Literature has the power to shape the way we see the world, and this seems especially true with controversial books. They tend to tap into a side of ourselves that sometimes we’d rather not acknowledge is there. This makes it even more important that we bring these topics to the surface,” said English teacher Chelsey Poindexter. On just one website, adlerbooks.com, there are at least 90 books that have been banned from certain American schools at one point in time. As avid readers, we thank the American Library Association for bringing the plight of banned books to light during Banned Book Week. From Sept. 30 to Oct. 6, the First Amendment is celebrated by fighting for challenged or banned books. Because of controversial topics, both classics and current best sellers are feeling the fire. “It’s ridiculous,” said senior Kay Paige. “If you don’t want to read it, don’t check it out.” She also suggests that if a certain

book is required in the curriculum, maybe students can opt out of reading it with parental consent. The successful Harry Potter series has been criticized Tabitha by primarily reliJakeway gious groups for promoting witchcraft. Just four hours away, Zeeland public schools had Harry Potter removed from the shelves of libraries, banned from classrooms and future Potter purchases halted. In the Maggie past, local religious Kane leaders were just as critical of the series, encouraging youth groups to stay away. Harbor Springs librarian Thom Blanck agreed that just by putting a book on a banned list, curiosity increases. “The heart wants what it can’t have,” he said. Another popular kids’ series, The Hunger Games, is also under scrutiny. Because the movie version is being released this summer, its popularity and criticism has soared. Critics’ chief complaints are excessive violence. “As teachers, we have the right to judge an author for creating a moving plot about humanity or just writing for shock value,” said English teacher Chad Broughman. What about media that isn’t meant to enlighten its audience,

but simply to entertain? Aimed at an audience of teens and young adults, the MTV channel attracts 32 million people in America alone. It’s highly unlikely that this massive audience tunes in to hear witty conversations. In our opinion, why watch a television show that is mostly muted or covered with black boxes? “I can’t stand 16 and Pregnant,” said senior Ian Greene. “It’s sad to glorify the bad behavior of young people.” Even the Internet is a target of censorship. The Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect Intellectual Property Acts aim to protect companies from copyright infringement. Because of its vague wording, Big-Brother fears of the government controlling the Internet have been revived. Websites such as Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter would be deeply impacted because of the high content of copyrighted material. “(Censorship) is not necessarily good. It takes away a universal right: freedom of speech,” said senior Neewin Wemigwase. “SOPA and PIPA could have killed the Internet.” Whether it’s a book, a movie, a song, or a website, censorship is limiting freedom of speech and expression. An iron curtain has descended across America, whether for better or worse.

In recognition of Parenting Awareness Month, the Child Abuse Council of Charlevoix and Emmet Counties is sponsoring the annual “What Makes a Good Parent?” drawing and essay contests for area second- and third-graders. Third-grade students were invited to participate in the essay contest with the hope of raising awareness of Parenting Awareness Month itself while encouraging youngsters to express what they feel constitutes a “good parent.” The winning essays are being printed in the Petoskey NewsReview each Friday during March. Second-grade students were invited to participate in the drawing contest using the same theme. The winning drawings are on display at the Petoskey public library this month.

By Reylin Sladics Charlevoix Elementary Do you know what makes a good parent? I know what makes my parents good. I know because they are always there for me and they love me very much. They will always be there for me no matter what. Here is some more ways why I love them. I love my parents because they Reylin Sladics feed me healthy foods. They feed me fruits, vegetables, dairys and grains all to help me grow and not get sick. They only time that I get candy is if I eat something healthy first. Another thing that my parents do for me is buy me seasonal clothes. That means that I wear things like sweaters in the Winter, long-sleeved shirts in the fall, tank tops in the Summer and short-sleeved shirts in the Spring. I would not wear a tank top in the Winter! And last but not least I love my parents because they save money to go on family trips! Every other year my family and my cousins family go to Disney World together. I love them for that because they use all that money to do something fun with us as a family! All of those reasons are why I love my family very much and they love me too. And I think that they love us no what!!!

Reylin is the daughter of Brian and Marcie Sladics of Charlevoix.

By Marissa Page Petoskey Lincoln Elementary They love us to peices but sometimes they need to get away for the weekend because they get stressed alot. They play ketch with us but sometimes our dad throws the ball too hard and we get hit in the nose! You usually run Marissa Page into the house and yell, “Mom, dad hit me in the nose and I think I broke it” and mom says back, “Get some ice.” They give us what we want. If you were at the store and you saw the brand new Lego set and you ask your mom, “Can I get the new Lego set, mom please its only $1.00 because its on sale?” And mom says, “Yes but you need to be good for the rest of the day.” “Okay.” I say. They give us nessedese like food, shelter, and clothing. They help us with our homework because they help us do projects. They help us correct our homework papers. They help us practice multiplication! If we didn’t have parents, we wouldn’t be here right now!

Marissa is the daughter of Elise and Tim Page of Petoskey.

By Hanna Herriman Charlevoix Elementary I think that my parents are good do you? I think my parents are good parents because they give me love and they take me on splended vocations. But the most important that there always there for Hanna Herriman me and when I’m at school and there not next to me it makes me sad cause I don’t get to see them so they can’t give me hugs and kisses. My parents give me medicine when I’m feeling low. They make sure I take a shower 4 times a week. They make sur I’m healthy, neat and clean. See that’s what I think makes a good parent love and kindness and that’s what my parents are like.

Hanna is the daughter of Bill and Kristen Herriman of Charlevoix.

TIME FROM A1 wrote of his frustration at being awakened by the early-morning sun, and offered a proposed remedy. He observed that moving clocks ahead by an hour would let one sleep later, while also saving considerable candlewax by pushing back the time of sunset. National Geographic News noted that the concept didn’t enter widespread international practice until the World War I era. Looking to preserve energy resources for the war effort, Germany was the first country to adopt the practice in that era, with allies and enemies following suit. In the United States, federal law established standard yearly starting and ending points for daylight saving time in 1918. In those days, individual states could decide for themselves whether to adopt daylight saving time. But with resource conservation coming to the forefront again in the World War II era, the federal government made the practice mandatory nationwide — on a year-round basis, rather than just in the warmer months. Following the war, daylight saving time became optional again for the states, but today, all but two — Arizona and Hawaii — observe it. Indiana was the most recent state to adopt daylight saving time in 2006. The year-round daylight saving time schedule was scaled back in the postwar era, too, but made a return appearance during the 1973-74 Arab oil embargo. At that time, the policy helped the nation achieve a modest savings in electricity use. Starting and ending times for daylight saving time have varied through the years. Most recently, congressional action provided for a monthlong extension of daylight saving time starting in 2007. Energy conservation was once again the aim of the extension. But National Geographic notes that studies in recent years have shown mixed findings as to

whether the policy delivers the desired energy results. Some advocates of daylight saving time see it as a way to promote healthier lifestyles by making it easier to schedule physical activities in daylight, National Geographic News notes, while others see potential for adverse health impacts. For example, studies by Till Roenneberg, a chronobiologist in Germany, indicate that circadian body clocks — guided by light and darkness — never adjust to the “extra” hour of sunlight at day’s end during daylight saving time. He noted that many people in the developed world are chronically overtired because their optimal circadian sleep periods don’t mesh with their sleep schedules — and believes the use of daylight saving time aggravates this.

Making the switch Technology in some modern clocks helps users avoid resetting steps when daylight saving time begins and ends. Such clocks automatically adjust to the proper time based on signals they receive from a remote transmitter — a time-saver for someone with a business such as Dittmar’s. All in all, though, Dittmar said his work when daylight savings time begins and ends isn’t as demanding as some might imagine. He figures he spends an hour or so at each changeover resetting some of Chronotech’s major clocks, and tends to the rest as time permits. Dittmar doesn’t even attempt to adjust the store’s much-larger quantity of watches at the changeovers. Occasionally, Dittmar’s shop helps customers repair damage that occurred to clocks during daylight saving time resetting. He noted that this is more common when clocks are moved back by an hour in the fall. “The general rule with an antique clock is, never turn it backward,” Dittmar said.

POLICE FROM A1 ful some of the new troopers will eventually be assigned to Northern Michigan and other rural posts around Michigan. “My understanding is some of the young troops will be coming up here,” said Michigan State Trooper John Ferguson, at the Petoskey Post. Because the Michigan State Police has shifted to a more mobile force, it now relies on greater inter-agency dealings with groups such as the Emmet County Sheriff ’s Office and Petoskey Public Safety on investigations, Ferguson said. “A lot of the way we have done policing in the past 95 years has been changed,” Ferguson said. “It hasn’t decreased our manpower (in Northern Michigan) at all. Our model is just different.” Ferguson said the new regional model helped recently solve a series of larcenies in the Pellston recently. “We see a lot of the benefits for the plan, but having more troopers will certainly help,” Ferguson said. Also critical for Norther n Michigan will be two measures that could have a direct impact on Northern Michigan drug abuse. Governor Snyder’s plan calls for lawmakers to pass new laws giving the Michigan Department of Community Health director

the power to outlaw designer drugs, such as synthetic marijuana replacements, that manufacturers change chemical makeups frequently to skirt state laws making them illegal. “The best way to ensure fulfilling futures for our children is to provide them with safe communities,” Snyder said in statement. “Working together across all levels of the public and private sectors, we’ll make sure the next generation of Michiganders has the rewarding opportunities it deserves.” “That’s going to be huge,” State Trooper Ferguson said. Terry Newton, director at Harbor Hall substance abuse treatment facility in Petoskey, agreed addressing designer drugs would have a big impact for the region. “A lot of K2, Spice and synthetic marijuana is evil,” Newton said. “I think there are enough drugs kids are having problems with, let alone doing this stuff. I support (the legislation) 100 percent.” A second piece of legislation, House Bill 4369, backed by Snyder would give the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs a system for monitoring controlled substances dispensed by prescribers. The department would then be able to identify potential abusers.

TODAY

CROSS WINDS

ABOVE: The steeple of St. Francis Xavier Church in Petoskey is seen Thursday, with one of the arms on the cross atop it bent back by nearly 180 degrees. The damage is believed to have occurred earlier this week. Judy Krussell, administrative assistant at St. Francis Xavier, said church staff weren’t sure what caused the damage, but suspect it may have been wind-related. LEFT: Although the wind blew the cross back into the appropriate position as seen today, Friday, March 9, St. Francis officials say the cross still needs to be fixed and are hoping to get a crane at the location as soon as possible.

paid ventures, the city has had success with similar programs such as Street Musique in the past. “No one on council now knows why that (a prohibition on fee-based ventures) is in there,” said Richards. “These have been successf u l c a r r i a g e r i d e s t h at seem to be a popular attraction for the city.” The council’s discussion is a step toward a trial permission for the operator to see how the business will work. “There will be carriage rides, but it may be more in May and maybe September and October,” said Ward. “We’re not sure what it’s going to be yet. We weren’t going to really plan it out we knew we could.” Other business included the approval of three city planning commissioners to attend a course and the approval of buying office furniture, which had been included in the December budget. Also included was discussion of a special agree-

ment between the city and a homeowner for a special dispensation for a house that had a stone garage and stone retaining wall that goes a few feet into the road right of way behind the sidewalk. The dispensation would allow the homeowner to sell the home with the wall intact. Currently away from city council is council member Michael “Mick” Heinz, who has missed meetings because he is recovering from major surgery. C i t y ch a r t e r d i c t at e s that the seat of members who miss three meetings in a row is considered to be vacated, unless there are special circumstances. Council passed a resolution per mitting his absence because of the circumstances. Finally, Harbor Springs is in discussion with the Alanson library to be the library that provides services to the city until the district library issue has been settled, said Richards.

Entire Pacific nation could move to Fiji Nick Perry Associated Press

Fe a r i n g t h at cl i m at e chang e could wipe out their entire Pacific archipelago, the leaders of Kiribati are considering an unusual backup plan: moving the populace to Fiji. Kiribati President Anote Tong told The Associated Press on Friday that h i s C ab i n e t t h i s we e k endorsed a plan to buy nearly 6,000 acres on Fiji's main island, Viti Levu. He said the fertile land, being sold by a church group for about $9.6 million, could provide an insurance policy for Kiribati's entire population of 103,000, though he hopes it will never be necessary for everyone to leave. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would hope not to put everyone on one piece of land, but if it became absolutely necessary, yes, we could do it,â&#x20AC;? Tong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wouldn't be for me, personally, but would apply more to a younger generation. For them, moving won't be a matter of choice. It's basically going to be a matter of survival.â&#x20AC;? Kiribati, which straddles the equator near the inter national date line, has found itself at the leading edge of the debate on climate change because many of its atolls rise just a few feet above sea level. Tong said some villages have already moved and there have been increasing instances of sea water contaminating the island's underground fresh water, which remains vital for trees and crops. He said changing rainfall, tidal and storm patterns pose as least as much threat as ocean levels, which so far have risen only slightly. Some scientists have estimated the current level of sea rise in the Pacific at about 2 millimeters (0.1 inches) per year. Many scientists expect that rate to accelerate due to climate change. Fiji, home to about 850,000 people, is about 1,400 miles south of Kiribati. But just what people there think about potentially providing a home for thousands of their neighb o r s re m a i n s u n cl e a r. Tong said he's awaiting full parliamentary approval for the land purchase, which he expects in April, before discussing the plan formally with Fijian officials. Sharon Smith-Johns, a spokeswoman for the Fijian government, said several agencies are studying Kiribati's plans and the government will release a formal statement next week. Kiribati, which was known as the Gilbert Islands when it was a British colony, has been an independent nation since 1979. Tong has been considering other unusual options to combat climate change, including shoring up some Kiribati islands with sea walls and even building a floating island. He said this week that the latter option would likely prove too expensive, but that he hopes reinforcing some islands will ensure that Kiribati continues to ex-

ist in some form even in a worst-case scenario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We're trying to secure the future of our people,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The international community needs to be addressing this problem more.â&#x20AC;? Tong said he hopes that the Fiji land will represent just one of several options for relocating people. He pointed out that the land is three times larger than the

atoll of Tarawa, currently home to more than half of Kiribati's population. Although like much of the Pacific, Kiribati is poor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; its annual GDP per person is just $1,600 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tong said the country has plenty of foreign reserves to draw from for the land purchase. The money, he said, comes from phosphate mining on the archipelago in the 1970s.

Four area teams play for district titles tonight Steve Foley (231) 439-9343 - sfoley@petoskeynews.com

DORAL, Fla. — Playing only his sixth round of the year, Adam Scott faced a strong test Thursday at Doral and never looked better. In fierce and relentless wind on the TPC Blue Monster at Doral, Scott kept the ball in play and then hung on for dear life for a 6-under 66 that gave him a share of the lead with Jason Dufner in the Cadillac Championship. Charl Schwartzel and Thomas Bjorn were at 68, while the group at 69 included PGA champion Keegan Bradley and Steve Stricker. Tiger Woods began his round with a tap-in eagle on the par-5 first hole, but narrowly missed the fairways and had a tough time figuring out the wind and whether the ball would jump out of the rough. Woods badly misjudged the line of his chip on the 18th hole and closed with a bogey for a 72.

Two share lead at Puerto Rico RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico — Matt Jones and George McNeill topped the leaderboard at 6-under 66 in strong wind in the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rico Open.

It is the only conference to earn three spots in the same Final Four (1985), the only conference to earn three No. 1 seeds in one tournament (2009), and the only conference to earn 11 berths in the field of 68 in one tournament (2011). That just happened to break the mark of eight berths, also posted by the Big East – three times (2006, ’08 and ’10). Pocono Raceway in eastern Pennsylvania has been a regular racing site on the NASCAR circuit since the 1960s, when it was founded by Joseph “Doc” Mattioli. Doc died in January of 2012, but the track is still owned by the Mattioli family, making Pocono the only remaining family owned and operated track on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule. And get this – in 2008, Doc built a three-megawatt photovoltaic solar energy system at Pocono, making it the largest solar-powered sports facility in the world.

HOROSCOPES For Monday, March 12 HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Family and friends are there for you, no matter what. New opportunities open in the career and education arenas. Get detailed about finances for increased power. Insurance, inheritance, taxes and loans could figure in. Make time for yourself amidst all the hustle. Light candles.

FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE

LYNN JOHNSON

Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is an 8 — Mercury goes retrograde today (until April 4) in your sign. Don’t take it personally. This chaotic frequency that’s broadcasting confusion; it’s not about you at all. Stick to your deadlines. Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is an 8 — Take care of your well-being with plenty of rest and fluids. Patience pays, and slowing the pace forestalls accidents. Watch where you’re going. Hidden talents get revealed.

FRANK & ERNEST

GARFIELD

BOB THAVES

JIM DAVIS

Gemini (May 21-June 21) — Today is a 7 — The next 24 days of Mercury in retrograde throw static into communications, especially in groups. Say it twice. Put it (and get it) in writing. Cancer (June 22-July 22) — Today is a 7 — Today is a 6 — Your professional status could take a tumble. Pick yourself up, dust off and get back to the great service you’re known for. If there’s a mess, clean it up. It works out. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is an 8 — Focus your attention on the things that work, the breakthroughs. Confusion could arise around education, philosophy or writing. Take it in stride. No need to decide.

PEARLS BEFORE SWINE

STEPHAN PASTIS

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is an 8 — You feel balanced and assured, as the rest of the story swirls. Even with breakdowns, things get worked out. Organize at home for greater power. Take it easy.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 7 — Mercury in Aries goes retrograde for you, Libra, in your seventh house of partnership. Sync schedules and reconfirm reservations. Have backup communication plans. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 7 — There could be disruption in service and health today, and over the next month. Prepare and back up what you can, and go lightly. Loving support is close by. Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21) — Today is an 8 — Beef up communication and travel infrastructure to avoid breakdown in the fun zone. Artistic expression, romance, kids and pets could get a bit hectic. Play it loose. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 7 — Mercury affects you in your fourth house of home and roots, muddling family communications or adding travel delays. Persistence and humor carry the day. Aquarius (Jan. 20Feb. 18) — Today is an 8 — For around the next month, expect delays and miscommunications, in general. For Aquarius, communications are even more affected. Doublecheck important ones. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 6 — Go ahead and seek funding (it may take time for it to come in). Expect wacky interruptions, with some energy and chaos involved. Back up hard drives. Check tires and fluids.

An Irish celebration

Boyne City enjoys a flurry of events during Irish Heritage Week March 11 through 18 Rachel Brougham (231) 439-9348 - rbrougham@petoskeynews.com

I

t’s a celebration of Irish heritage and history. The Boyne City Irish Heritage Week will take place Sunday, March 11, through Sunday, March 18, in and around Boyne City. In its fifth year, the week pays tribute and honors the Boyne area’s Irish roots. Hugh Conklin, manager of Boyne City Main Street, said the city was founded by an Irish couple in 1856, and Irish heritage in the community has remained strong. Irish Heritage Week features a variety of events, including music, an Irish dinner and an Irish film festival. In 2011, the event was extended to an eight day celebration because of the overwhelming response. All events are free, unless noted. On Sunday, the events kick off with a Celtic music session from 1-3 p.m. at the Boyne District Library. All musicians are welcome to join in. On Monday, March, 12, the Irish Film Fest will begin, with the showing of “Leap Year.” The film will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Boyne District Library. The film is based on the Irish tradition that allows a woman to propose to her love on Leap Day, and stars Amy Adams. There will be two events on Tuesday, March 13. The first is an Irish history

discussion, “The Battle of the Boyne Reexamined,” presented by George Colburn, a local historian and documentary filmmaker. That will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Boyne District Library. The discussion will be immediately followed by the feature the film, “A Shine of Rainbows,” which will be shown at 7:30 p.m. The film is a poignant story about an orphan boy, his new family and the challenges that confront him. It stars Aidan Quinn. Performers Sean and Patrick Ryan will play Celtic music and Irish folk songs from 8-11 p.m. on Friday, March 16, and 5:309 p.m. Saturday, March 17, at Cafe Santé. A number of events will take place on Saturday, March 17, including the Spring Warm-Up 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Boyne City farmers market, adjacent to the Boyne District Library. The whole family can learn about Alpaca wool, children can plant seeds, watch a spinning wheel demonstration and learn about the maple syrup process. A children’s story time will take place at 10 a.m. at the library, followed at 11 a.m. by “Darby O’Gill and The Little People,” a classic film with more leprechauns than you can count. Those interested in genealogy can take part in a workshop that will help you trace your family lineage with genealogists from the Charlevoix County Genealogy Society. The

event will be from 1-3 p.m. at the Boyne District Library. The highlight of the week, the Irish Heritage Dinner, will take place from 5-8 p.m. Saturday at the Eagles community room on River Street. The dinner features a six-course Irish feast, Irish step dancers, Celtic music and songs featuring the Hooligans. Admission is $15 for adults if paid by March 13, and $20 after. Children ages 6-12 are $8 and those under 6 are free. Tickets are available at the Boyne Area Chamber, Eagles Lodge, Local Flavor and Country Now and Then/ Up the Lazy River. On Sunday, March 18, a Celtic Music Session will take place

from 1-3 p.m. at Freshwater Studio. All musicians can join in. For more information, call the Boyne chamber at (231) 582-

hey may not be foods that are par t of the traditional St. Patrick’s Day feast, but they are definitely foods that are representative of the holiday. From green root beer to shamrock shakes and even a Reuben hot dog, the Bob-In Again has some special menu items to coincide with St. Patrick’s Day, which is Saturday, March 17. “I’ve been having St. Patrick’s Day specials f o r ye a r s, b u t l i ke t o change it up a bit,” said owner, Robert Rogier. Currently, the restaurant has six-pack bottles that are made special for the Bob-In available for take out. And on St. Patrick’s Day, the restaurant will serve its famous, homemade draft root beer with a twist — it will be green. “The bottles really look great and I thought it would be fun to make it available for people to take home,” Rogier said. In addition, the always p o p u l a r g re e n , s h a m rock shake is available through the month. The shake is a mix of the restaurant’s popular vanilla custard and mint. “People just go bonkers for the shamrock s h a ke s, ” Ro g i e r s a i d . “ E v e r y y e a r, p e o p l e come in looking for them as soon as March comes along.” And there is a new item this St. Patrick’s Day. It’s something Rogier spent some time researching, and said he’s

Robert Rogier, Bob-In Again owner ready to introduce to his customers. “I had this idea for a Reuben hot do g,” he said. “I ended up doing a lot of research and it’s not something new, it’s been done before, but I spent some time trying to find the best combinations and it’s really good.” I t ’s a n a l l b e e f h o t dog, topped with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing, cor ned beef and spicy brown mustard. “Reuben sandwiches are always popular, so we t h o u g h t we ’d g ive this a try and gauge the interest of our customers.” Rogier said if the hotd o g g o e s ove r we l l , i t could possibly become a regular menu item or special. “I really like St. Patrick’s Day, I always have,” Rogier said. “It’s fun to try these new things and I’m excited to share them with our customers.

“John Carter” Yes, there is

life on Mars, and it’s deadly dull. These are not words you would expect to use in describing a film from Andrew Stanton, director of the Oscar-winning Pixar favorites “Finding Nemo” and “WALL-E,” who’s making his live-action debut. And yet there they are, and they’re inescapable. Except for a strong cast, a few striking visuals and some unexpected flashes of humor, “John Carter” is just a dreary, convoluted trudge — a soulless sprawl of computer-generated blippery converted to 3-D. Glimmers of “Star Wars” and “Avatar” are evident, but the uninitiated may still find it impenetrable. “Friday Night Lights” star Taylor Kitsch plays the title character, a Civil War veteran who’s suddenly transported to Mars and finds himself in the midst of a different kind of civil war as well as an interplanetary romance. Lynn Collins, Ciaran Hinds, Willem Dafoe and Mark Strong co-star. PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action. 131 minutes. One and a half stars out of four.

“Silent House”Let’s just get

something out of the way: “Silent House” creates the illusion that it’s a hauntedhouse thriller crafted in one long, continuous shot. The camera follows “Martha Marcy May Marlene” star Elizabeth Olsen around a creepy lake house that’s under renovation, and we’re with her for every bump, jump and thump of her heart. This isn’t the case, and husband-andwife directors Chris Kentis and Laura Lau acknowledge as much — they pieced together several long takes to create one seamless featurelength film, a process that must have required a great deal of choreography, breathholding and prayer to pull off. But once you realize that what you’re watching is a trick — albeit one that’s beautifully executed from a technical standpoint — with a final twist that’s really a gimmick, its novelty loses a bit of its luster. R for disturbing violent content and terror. 88 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

3rd Annual Have A Heart Valentine’s Benefit

inners Thurs-Sat D pm 5 Starting at

Brother Dan’s Food Pantry would like to sincerely thank all of our sponsors, bands, volunteers and all who attended our 3rd Annual Brother Dan’s Have A Heart Benefit on February 12, 2012, held at the Emmet County Fairgrounds Community Building. They all came together in full force and offered tremendous support for a very worthy cause to help the less fortunate in our area.

menu, Offering full to on ti di in ad es. ur at fe l ia spec

It is so rewarding to see all the hard work come to fruition, and turn out to be so much fun in the end. It is even more rewarding to know the shelves at the pantry will be filled with foods needed to help the less fortunate in our area. The only way this comes about is the hard work by all of the wonderful volunteers that take the time from their own lives to make all of this come together. Our volunteers work tirelessly to create an event to remember, and they are a terrific crew! They don’t come better! Below is a full list of sponsors of our silent auction and food buffet, and the fabulous bands that made up our entertainment for the day! Without them, we couldn’t do what we do, which ultimately is what it is all about; helping the people in our community who are struggling to make it in a tough economy. You are all the backbone of our efforts, and we cannot thank you enough! [For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink…..] Matthew 25:35
