CROSS VILLAGE — Two kayakers were rescued from Lake Michigan north of Harbor Springs at 6:37 a.m., today, Thursday, July 15.

The kayakers, both 18-year-old men, departed from Bliss Beach north of Harbor Springs at about 6 p.m., Wednesday heading toward Waugoshance Point in Wilderness State Park. The pair were stranded because

of weather and were forced to overnight camp along the Lake Michigan shoreline. After a missing persons call was reported locally at 5 a.m. Thurs-

MDOT mulls dead-ending west Pickerel Lake Road Ryan Bentley 439-9342 -

Two options under consideration by the Michigan Department of Transportation could allow for a long-sought traffic signal’s installation along U.S. 31 North. If either is followed through, the west leg of Pickerel Lake Road intersection would be blocked off at U.S. 31 in the process. MDOT recently has been reviewing possible options for the intersection with Bear Creek Township officials and the Emmet County Road Commission. The intersection — where U.S. 31 crosses Pickerel Lake Road at an angle — is one where Bear Creek officials have sought the state’s consideration for a traffic signal in years past, citing safety concerns about the crossing’s layout. Because of the lay of the land in the area, MDOT doesn’t believe a traffic light would be workable for the intersection in its current form. With westbound motorists on Pickerel Lake Road moving

Group files to get Tea Party on ballot LANSING (AP) — The Michigan secretary of state’s office received 59,400 signatures Wednesday to place the Tea Party on the state’s November ballot, but Michigan Republican Chairman Ron Weiser said the move is a trick by GOP opponents to confuse voters.

“In a Hail Mary-style last ditch effort, desperate stooges” of the Democratic Party “have attempted to confuse Michigan voters by hijacking the name of the Tea Party movement,” Weiser said in a statement. “Every true Tea Party organization has disavowed this effort and identified it for what it

is: base political maneuvering.” Michigan Democratic Chairman Mark Brewer said his party is not involved and that he doesn’t know the men listed on the filing. “We don’t have anything to do with this,” Brewer told The As-


New efforts under way to stop spread of Asian carp Rachel Brougham 439-9348 -

United States senator Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., led a senate subcommittee hearing Wednesday afternoon to hear updates on the effort to stop Asian carp from reaching the Great Lakes. In June, an Asian carp was found in Lake Calumet, an Illinois lake that is just beyond an electric barrier set up by the Army Corps of Engineers. The carp was found just six miles from Lake Michigan, and was the first detected past the barrier.

competing with other fish such as walleye and salmon. By entering the Great Lakes, they would pose a threat to Michigan’s $7 billion a year fishing industry and Michigan’s $16 billion recreational boating industry. Dr. Leon Carl of the United States Geological Survey, who testified during the hearing, said the carp found in Lake Calumet was approximately 6 years old. But Carl said there isn’t enough infor-

“I would strongly urge the closure of the locks in Chicago until we can figure this all out,” Stabenow said during the hearing. “While I do very much appreciate the intensity of all the work being done, and it’s clear the monitoring is doing what we needed, we still have a long way to go.” Some species of Asian carp can weigh up to 100 pounds and eat up to 40 percent of their body weight a day in plankton, so they would be

mation to firmly say how the fish reached the lake. “It’s very unlikely the fish would be able to pass through the electric barrier the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has set up — this is an optimal system,” Carl said. “I think it’s unlikely the fish swam through the barrier, but it’s hard to speculate.” There is also concern that Asian carp could soon reach Lake Erie. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday it will put up a mesh net across a section of marsh in

Foreclosures set to jump

Jobless rate down slightly

Bank bill set to pass

LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than 1 million American households are likely to lose their homes to foreclosure this year, as lenders work their way through a huge backlog of borrowers who have fallen behind on their loans. Nearly 528,000 homes were taken over by lenders in the first six months of the year, a rate that is on track to eclipse the more than 900,000 homes repossessed in 2009, according to RealtyTrac Inc.

LANSING (AP) — Michigan’s unemployment rate has continued to drop while total employment is largely unchanged. The seasonally adjusted figure for June released Wednesday by the state Department of Energy, Labor & Economic Growth is 13.2 percent, down fourtenths of a percentage point from May. Unemployment declined by 21,000 people in June but total employment increased only 1,000.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A sweeping overhaul of the nation’s financial regulations stands on the verge of reaching President Barack Obama’s desk after a year of partisan struggles and delicate cross-party courtships that promised more and delivered less. Only three Senate Republicans say they will vote for the bill. But the bill bears the fingerprints of many others in the GOP.

BP works to fix valve leak on cap that could choke off oil

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — BP engineers working to choke the flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico found a leak on a line attached to the side of the new well cap and were trying to fix it Thursday before attempting to stop the crude. BP said Wednesday evening it had isolated the leak and was repairing it before moving forward. It wasn’t clear how it would affect the timing of the operation, or whether oil continued to be slowly closed off into the cap. Work started earlier Wednesday after a day-long hiatus to allay government fears that the disaster could be made worse by going forward with the tests to determine whether the temporary cap can withstand the pressure and contain the oil. It was the best hope yet of stopping the crude from streaming into the water for the first time since the April 20 explosion on the Deepwater Horizon rig that killed 11 people. The process began with BP shutting off pipes that were funneling some of the oil to ships on the surface so the full force of the gusher went up into the cap. Then deep-sea robots began slowly closing, one at a time, three openings in the cap that let oil pass through. Ultimately, the flow of crude will be blocked entirely. All along, engineers were watching pressure readings to learn whether the well is

intact. The first two valves shut off like a light switch, while the third works more like a dimmer and takes longer to close off. The leak was found in the line attached to the dimmer switch, but live video footage showed that oil previously spewing from other sources on the cap remained closed off.

While you’re at it, make sure they aren’t cracked, which also can lead to a flat.

— TENTS: Even if camping only takes you as far as your backyard, properly caring for your tent will help it last. That starts with selecting flat spots to pitch the tent and using a ground cloth the same size as its floor to protect it from abrasion and moisture. If there’s no shade, use the fly to protect the fabric from sun damage. When you get home, unpack the tent, inspect it and remove all debris. If necessary, clean it with a nonabrasive sponge, cold water and non-detergent soap. Do not machinewash it or use household cleaners because their scent will attract critters and some substances can reduce the tent’s ability to repel water. Above all, make sure your tent is dry before putting it away. If there is any sign of moisture, set it up and let it air dry. Avoid storing a tent in a damp basement or hot attic. — PATIO FURNITURE: Many sets are designed to be left outside all year, but it’s best to cover all outdoor furniture when you’re not using it, accord-

In Brief

Court: Data mandate on Michigan schools is illegal

LANSING (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court says it’s illegal for school districts to be forced to collect data without the state paying the bill. In a 4-3 decision, the court said Wednesday that a 2000 executive order and subsequent law violated the Michigan Constitution because lawmakers didn’t cover the costs of the new burden. The court says the costs were not minimal. The school districts’ lawyer says they aren’t entitled to money for past work. But he says they can’t be forced to collect data for the Center for Educational Performance and Information unless they’re paid. The court’s three conservative justices disagreed with the decision, saying schools didn’t offer specific proof of their costs. The Education Department isn’t commenting.

One down, one to go Lauer sentenced to prison in Antrim County drug case; scheduled for sentencing on other case in Emmet County Christina Rohn 439-9398 -

ANTRIM COUNTY — A Petoskey man was sentenced to serve 4-20 years in prison Monday in Antrim County’s 13th Circuit Court, after pleading guilty in June to a lesser charge of delivery of a controlled substance (fentanyl). James Jeffrey Lauer, 49, was originally charged with second-degree murder and delivery of a controlled substance causing death — both life felonies — for the death of 27-yearold Amanda Brookz Harding in September 2009. According to James Rossiter, assistant prosecuting attorney for Antrim County, Lauer reportedly traded Harding one fentanyl patch for two packs

of heroin outside a Glen’s market in Mancelona. T wo d ay s a f t e r the exchange, Harding was found dead in her van outside the g rocery store. Lauer Au t o p s y r e s u l t s indicate that her death was a result of mixed toxicity from both the fentanyl and heroin. During his sentencing July 12, Lauer reportedly expressed emotion while reading a statement to the court. “He said that he knew this had cost him a lot and the family of Amanda a lot,” Rossiter said. “He expressed remorse and regret, which is not unusual to hear from a defendant at sentencings ... he was crying,

sniffling ... there was a show of emotions.” Rossiter said the real victims in this case are the ones who haven’t been given a voice. “The true victims in this case are (Harding’s) children who don’t have a mother now,” h e s a i d . “A l l t h e c o n t ro l l e d s u b s t a n c e v i o l at i o n s a re n’ t victimless crimes.” Rossiter said this case should act as a war ning to Norther n Michigan residents about how the prescription drug problem is growing in the area. “This is an example that the traf ficking, trading and selling of phar maceuticals is becoming a problem,” he said. “This really drives home the point that just because (a prescription drug) is prescribed at some point, it doesn’t make

them safe — these are no less dangerous than drugs like heroin.” In a separate case in Emmet County, Lauer took a plea deal from the Emmet County Prosecutor’s Of fice, and pleaded guilty June 25 in 57th Circuit Court to possession of methamphetamine, a 10-year felony. He was originally set to face trial July 19-20 in circuit court for five felony drug charges, as well as habitual offender third offense, which could have double his maximum sentence, after police in February discovered a marijuana g rowth operation in his home, as well as meth, fentanyl, ritalin and suboxone in his possession. Lauer will now face sentencing at 9 a.m. Aug. 9 in circuit court for this crime.

Tall ships stop in Bay City on Great Lakes tour

A Pellston man, who admitted in May to using a hidden camera in his home to obtain s e x u a l ly e x p l i c i t i m a g e s o f three victims, had his sentencing delayed for a second time Monday, July 12, in 57th Circuit Court. Initially, 36-year-old Jaimie Emanuel McDonald, who admitted to using a hidden camera in his bathroom to capture

the images of three victims taking showers and using the toilet, was s ch e d u l e d t o f a c e sentencing on June 28 for two felonies, but this hearing McDonald was delayed a first time and reset for Ju ly 1 2 at t h e re quest of his court-appointed attorney, Bryan Klawuhn. According to court documents, McDonald was ordered

to have a sex offender assessment completed prior to his first sentencing date, June 28. This was until Klawuhn informed the court, prior to the hearing, that McDonald had not yet completed this assessment because his first available appointment was July 7. Klawuhn subsequently requested an adjournment, which was granted. The most recent sentencing delay, however, which pushed McDonald’s hearing from July

12 to 8:30 a.m. on July 21, was explained only as “at request of attorneys” in court files at the Emmet County Clerk’s Office. McDonald is facing sentencing for two charges — one count of eavesdropping - installing/ using device, a two-year felony; and one count of using computers to commit a crime - maxim u m i m p r i s o n m e n t o f t wo years or more, but less than four years, a four-year felony. He reportedly has no prior criminal record.


BAY CITY (AP) — A fleet of tall ships is stopping in Bay City as part of an effort to draw attention to Great Lakes conservation. The Great Lakes United Tall Ships Challenge is scheduled to be in the city along the Saginaw Bay from Thursday through Sunday. It’s one of six stops scheduled for this summer at Great Lakes port cities. Earlier stops included Toronto and Cleveland. Organizers say stops are planned in Duluth, Minn.; Green Bay, Wis.; and Chicago. The event is a partnership between the U.S.-Canadian advocacy group Great Lakes United and the American Sail Training Association.

Obama to promote electric vehicles in Michigan

WASHINGTON (AP) — Facing fresh criticism of his handling of the economy, President Barack Obama travels to Michigan today to promote investments in the electric vehicle battery industry, a sector the administration sees as a bright spot in the sagging recovery. Obama will attend a groundbreaking ceremony for a plant that will manufacture advanced batteries for Chevrolet and Ford electric cars. The Compact Power plant in Holland, Mich., is the ninth factory to begin construction following the $2.4 billion investment in advanced batteries and electric vehicles Obama announced last August. An Energy Department report to be released Thursday says the investments will increase U.S. production of advanced batteries from 2 percent to 40 percent of the world’s supply by 2015, creating thousands of jobs along the way.

Venetian seating policy revised Steve Zucker Charlevoix Courier Editor

CHARLEVOIX — Organizers of the Venetian Festival have instituted a new seating policy for the Rhythms of Venetian concerts during this year’s festival. The new policy will require concert-goers to remove all chairs, blankets and other property from the seating areas at the Odmark Pavilion venue at the end of each night’s performances. Property left behind will be collected by security staff and stowed in a secured area nearby where items can be claimed the next day. The policy also prohibits people from placing chairs, blankets or “other means of reserving space” prior to noon on Tuesday-Friday and prior to 8 a.m. on Saturday. The policy also creates a “blanket zone” in the level, g rass area immediately to the nor th of the stage. In this area only blankets and chairs no higher than eight

inches from the ground will be allowed. The policy also requires that people sitting in the terraced seating areas, use the space in such a way that spectators may sit “at least two rows deep.” In explaining the new policy to the Charlevoix City Council at its July 6 meeting, festival board president Dan Barron said the policy was developed in response to problems that have cropped up in recent years where people have been staking out their seating area on Tuesday and leaving their items there for the rest of the week. H e s a i d t h e n e w p o l i cy w i l l n o t o n l y m a ke f o r a more f air and orderly opportunity for spectators to obtain seating locations for the concerts, but it will also make daily clean-up of the grounds easier.

City restores Venetian funding Steve Zucker Charlevoix Courier Editor

CHARLEVOIX — The Charlevoix City Council has restored $3,000 in funding to the Charlevoix Venetian Festival that it had cut during budget discussions earlier this year. At its July 6 meeting, the council, by a 4-2 vote (with council members Greg Stevens and Dennis Kusina voting no) agreed to restore its contribution to the festival to the $15,000 amount it has paid in the past instead of the reduced $12,000 amount it approved at the time the budget was passed in the spring. The change came on the heels of a request from Charlevoix Venetian Festival, Inc. board president Dan Barron. In late June, Barron came to the Charlevoix Downtown Development Authority board asking for the extra money. That board said it would make the contribution if the city council declined. The downtown development authority took that path based on the recommendation of city

treasurer Rick Brandi who said that, if the additional money were to be offered, it could be better absorbed by the city’s general fund promotions budget than the authority’s budget. Brandi noted that the downtown development authority’s budget will be “tight” for the next couple of years as bond payments will be due on work that took place in Bridge and East parks. The council also voted to halve the $6,500, it expects to bill the festival organization for trash removal by city crews. That measure passed by a 5-1 margin with Stevens voting no. In other business, the council choose not to take action on a proposal by city manager Rob Straebel to hire two additional season employees to help with brush pickup around the city. Straebel said the additional help would cost the city about $3,300. He said he brought the proposal after fielding some complaints from city residents about how long brush piles have been remaining on some city curbsides.

Political math, political passion

Frustrated by the politics of unemployment Americans are eating political drama by the bucket. Mitigating the environmental disaster in the gulf resulting from BP’s oil spill has been slowed as both sides try to bolster their stance on offshore drilling. The damage being done as we wrangle over who could benefit most from disaster is disgusting. But it isn’t isolated to the Gulf. This politicking disaster has reached your neighborhood. It’s simple, this recession is nowhere near stable yet political factions are controlling the flow of necessary benefits for over two million unemployed workers. Democrats are sitting back and refusing to pass the extension without a string of “related” bills that Republicans and Tea Partiers have dubbed “controversial tax and spend add-ons.” Republicans have fought back and a new stripped down bill is close to being passed but what about those workers who have waited for a government dripping in agendas that have nothing to do with the hurt they are feeling at home? Beginning in June, hundreds of thousands of workers unemployed for more than six months started losing the weekly checks. Yes there is a deficit. Yes we should demand fiscal responsibility from our government but this battle isn’t about how to take care of people. It’s about political power. Is this a government for the people? A government that would rather your family go hungry than find consensus? On the table now is a stand-alone six-month extension of unemployment benefits at a cost of $33 billion. According to a report by Associated Press writer, Andrew Taylor, those who lost benefits will get them retroactively. Let’s get this passed and bring some needed relief to many people who were disappointed in the lack of direction their elected officials were able to provide. Wow, that’s right, an election is just around the corner. I hope you take the time to get to know who you are putting in office. Some day it could be your table they are taking food from. Julie Witthoeft, online editor, Petoskey News-Review

Reply Ron Moore: Both parties feed us “stupid” by the bucket full and ladle it with a shovel. If it wasn’t unemployment it’s education or some such crap. They use the media to spread misinformation, “left wing and right wing.” They say one thing and do another and right in front of our face and know that their followers will shout down to opposition. A good case in point is the Obamas going to Maine for vacation, after Michelle touted going to the Gulf.

Much obliged To the unknown honest man in Petoskey Editor: My wife and I were on a motorcycle trip north of Petoskey when we stopped for breakfast at a diner in Pellston. When the time came to pay the bill, I discovered my wallet missing and went into a panic. Good thing my wife had money to pay for breakfast but soon after we were headed back to Petoskey to the credit union where we stopped on the way through to cash a check earlier that morning. They said nobody turned in a wallet but that they would call if somebody did. This was just great, our day was ruined so we were headed home, but first we needed a pit stop at the gas station down the road. We were sure everything was lost and I would have to spend a day canceling credit cards and trying to replace my credentials and all that sort of stuff. As soon as we got off our motorcycle, my wife’s cell phone started ringing. It was a call from home telling us to call the Petoskey city police and that someone turned in my wallet and they were trying to contact me. What a surprise. My wife called the officer who agreed to meet us at the gas station and return the missing wallet. When he got there we thanked him and offered to buy him lunch but he would have none of that because he was just doing his job. He was very professional and courteous as he explained that an off duty tribal policeman found the bill fold at an intersection we went through and that it was run over a few times and the contents were scattered around. This person went through the trouble of gathering the contents of my wallet at this busy intersection and turned it over to the city police so they could contact

Alternative celebration a success Editor: Thank you to the organizers of the alternative Fourth of July event for veterans held at the Knights of Columbus hall in Petoskey. This letter is from the father of an Army soldier that shipped out July 3 for Afghanistan, and the proud father of his younger brother, our Marine that served in Iraq honorably. Success is not always measured by large numbers, but sometimes by smaller almost immeasurable benchmarks. Our son, our Marine, slept through the night! No nightmares. No hitting to the deck, no night sweats. Why? The celebration you put on was a pleasant reprieve from what most of you take for granted, Fourth of July fireworks! Those of us that have not faced war and all that it implies need only to look in to the faces of our soldiers recently returned from combat to see the discomfort in their eyes.

WASHINGTON — If the midterm elections were held now, Republicans would likely take control of the House of the Representatives. It’s as hard these days to find a Democrat who’s not alarmed as it is to find a Cleveland Cavaliers fan who’s cheering for LeBron James. Worse for Democrats: They face two very different challenges, and addressing one could make the other worse. The outcome of the 2010 elections thus depends in large part on whether they can find a solution to a set of simultaneous equations before November. On the one hand, independent voters are turning on them. Democratic House candidates enjoyed a 51 percent to 43 percent advantage over the Republicans in 2008. This time, the polls show independents tilting Republican by substantial margins. But Democrats are also suffering from a lack of enthusiasm among their own supporters. Poll after poll has shown that while Republicans are eager to cast ballots, many Democrats seem inclined to sit this election out. The dilemma is that arguments that might motivate partisans could further alienate the less-ideological independents. The classic formulation holds that the party can either move left to excite its base or move to the center to win back independents. If there is an answer to this conundrum, it lies in the reality that many voters — partisans and independents alike — are not particularly ideological. They respond to facts as they see them (a stalled economic recovery) and to a party’s performance (the Senate Republicans’ obstruction ends up hurting Democrats because they are supposed to be in charge). The GOP’s gridlock strategy was well thought out and has paid enormous dividends. Republican leaders understood that delay was their friend because the immediate elation over President Obama’s election was bound to wear off. And while Republicans erected their blockade, they insisted that all the nastiness arose from Obama’s failure to reach out to them. The politics of passive-aggressiveness worked twice over. Independents hated all the fighting. And even when Democrats won on health care and other issues, they emerged less with a renewed sense of purpose than with feelings of exhaustion and frustration over all the compromises it took to eke out victory. Turning all this around is a White House mission, and the president’s campaign stops last week in Missouri and Nevada previewed his effort to paint Republicans as both extreme and recalcitrant. His speech in Kansas City included one major innovation, an echo of a legendary 1940 assault by Franklin D. Roosevelt against his political opponents in Congress — “Martin, Barton and Fish.” Obama went after the alliterative trio of “Barton and Boehner and Blunt,” references to Reps. Joe Barton of Texas, John Boehner of Ohio and Roy Blunt

Airline fees make it hard to shop for best deal

Contact your reps Rep. Gary McDowell

Joan Lowy Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON — Finding the best deal on a flight has become a lot more difficult, thanks to hefty baggage and service fees that consumers often don’t know about until they show up at the airline counter, congressional investigators say. Those fees are not part of the ticket price, meaning they can easily go unseen until it’s too late for the consumer to shop around. The fees, amounting to billions of dollars for the airlines, also go untaxed, and some lawmakers want to reclaim that money for the treasury. Airlines, travel agents, online travel services and other ticket distribution channels should be required to disclose fees for checked baggage, changed reservations and other services in a clear and consistent manner, the Government Accountability Office said in a report out Wednesday. The office is Congress’ financial watchdog and its report preceded a congressional hearing into the matter Wednesday. Since 2007, many airlines have been charging for services that were traditionally included in the price of a ticket. That’s improved airline bottom lines in a tough economy but raised the ire of travelers who find themselves nickeled and dimed to


In this photograph taken June 7, an American Airlines sign listing the fees for checked baggage is shown, at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle. The Government Accountability Office recommended in a report released Tuesday, July 13, that the government improve the disclosure of airline fees, not only by airlines, but also by travel booking services. substantially higher costs. Besides checked bags, some airlines charge fees for seat selection, extra leg room, prime spots in boarding lines, blankets, pillows, drinks and meals. “Those fees can be an unexpected shock totaling hundreds of dollars,” said Charles Leocha, director of the Consumer Travel Alliance. In the last budget year, 10

U.S. airlines collected $7.8 billion in such fees, congressional accountants say. The leader was Delta Air Lines, the world’s largest airline, with $1.6 billion. Airlines say fees benefit passengers because they allow airlines to keep ticket prices down and consumers pay only for services they use. “This is a deregulated in-

dustry and this is an industry that should be able to charge whatever it opts to charge for services,” said David Castelveter, a spokesman for the Air Transport Association, which represents major airlines. “There is no reason why one passenger should subsidize another for a service he or she doesn’t consume,” Castelveter said. He said

simultaneous equation puzzle: It must benefit all it can from Tea Party organizing without getting tarred by its members’ frequently radical outbursts. But there is an intangible: Passion counts in politics. It motivates a movement’s most fervent followers but can also carry along moderates attracted to those who promise change and profess great certainty about how to achieve it. Barack

Obama got himself elected president by understanding this. Passion may come especially hard to Democrats this year, and even in the best of times, it can be difficult to muster among liberals. As the philosopher Michael Walzer observed in his book “Politics and Passion,” liberals by their very nature highly prize skepticism, irony and doubt. Walzer argued that “administrators do well

airlines already disclose the fees consumers are most concerned about, like checked bag fees, on their websites. American, Continental, Delta, US Airways and United all charge $25 for the first checked bag, and $35 for the second, according to the booking website Kayak. JetBlue charges $10 and up for additional legroom. AirTran charges $6 for passengers to get seat assignments in advance, and sells exit row seats for $20 extra. Snacks at most airlines run $2 to $5, meals a bit more. The Transportation Department is considering requiring airlines to disclose two ticket prices to passengers: a “full fare” with all mandatory charges like taxes, and “full fare-plus” with the extras. The government charges a 7.5 percent excise tax on airline tickets to pay for the air traffic system. The IRS ruled last year that optional fees aren’t subject to the excise tax. The report says the government could have raised $186 million last year if the checked bag fees alone had been taxed, an amount likely to grow as airlines charge more fees.

DIONNE FROM A4 of Missouri. Challenging them for their resolute opposition to every Democratic approach, Obama asked “if that ‘no’ button is just stuck.” He hopes that this Republican trinity can do double duty. It creates a tangible group of foes against whom Democrats can rally. And it reminds independents that a Republican vote this fall would not simply be a rebuke to Washington but

also an affirmative ballot for Republican leaders who are none too popular themselves. Democrats are counting on a similar twofer from their attacks on the current brand of Republicanism as being too doctrinaire and too extreme. The energy that the Tea Party provides Republicans could be offset by a negative reaction in the electoral middle to the new movement’s ferocity. This is the GOP’s

when they follow their rational convictions,” but “political activists must be more passionately engaged, or else they will lose every struggle for political power.” On paper, Democrats have a rational solution to their political math problem. They must still find the passion that executing it will require.

Initial claims for jobless benefits drop sharply Christopher S. Rugaber AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — New applications for unemployment benefits fell sharply last week as General Motors and other manufacturers skipped their usual summer shutdowns. The Labor Department said Thursday that new claims dropped by 29,000 to 429,000, the lowest level since August 2008. It was the second straight week that initial claims dropped sharply and the third drop in the last four weeks. Claims fell by 17,000 in the previous week. Nor mally, such a sharp drop in claims would be seen as a positive sign that the job market is improving. But economists will need to see the downward trend continue for several more weeks before drawing conclusions. Another concern is that t h e l a t e s t d r o p m ay b e the result of temporary seasonal factors. A Labor Department analyst said manufacturing companies reported fewer temporary l ayo f f s t h a n u s u a l t h i s time of year.

retool plants for new car models. T hat usually causes a spike in temporary layoffs and jobless claims in early July. Other manufacturers also reported fewer temporary layoffs than expected, the analyst added. Claims had been stuck above 450,000 all year, after dropping steadily last

year from a peak of 651,000 in March 2009. In a healthy economic recovery with rapid hiring, claims usually fall below 400,000. Meanwhile, many of the long-term unemployed are continuing to lose benefits as a result of a congressional impasse over extending emergency jobless aid. The number of people

receiving extended benefits plummeted by about 250,000 to 4.3 million in the week ending June 26, the most recent data available. During the recession, lawmakers added up to 73 weeks of extra benefits, paid for by the federal government, on top of the 26 weeks typically provided by states. But those extensions expired in late May, leaving about 2 million people witho ut u nemployment aid, according to the Labor Department. That figure could grow to 3.3 million by the end of this month if Congress doesn’t act. The Obama administration and Senate Democrats are pushing le gislation that would renew the extended benefits through November. The Senate is expected to have the votes next week to pass the measure. Senate Republicans have blocked previous attempts, citing deficit concerns and arguing that the cost of the bill should be offset with other spending cuts. Those emergency figures don’t include the people continuing to receive benefits from state programs. T h a t f i g u r e j u m p e d by 247,000 to 4.68 million, the department said.

Argentina legalizes gay marriage in historic vote Michael Warren Associated Press Writer

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Argentina legalized same-sex marriage Thursday, becoming the first country in Latin America to grant gays and lesbians all the legal rights, responsibilities and protections that marriage brings to heterosexual couples. After a marathon debate, 33 lawmakers voted in favor, 27 were against it and 3 abstained in Argentina’s Senate in a vote that ended after 4 a.m. Since the lower house already approved it, and President Cristina Fernandez is a strong supporter, it now becomes law as soon as it is published in the official bulletin. The law is sure to bring a wave of marriages by gays and lesbians who have increasingly found Buenos Aires to be more accepting than many other places in the region. The approval came despite a concerted campaign by the Roman Catholic Church and evangelical groups, which drew 60,000 people to march on Congress and urged parents in churches and schools to work against passage. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio said “everyone loses” with gay marriage, and “children need to have the right to be raised and educated by a father and a mother.” Nine gay couples had already married in Argentina after persuading judges that the constitutional mandate of equality supports their marriage rights, but some of

these marriages were later declared invalid. As the debate stretched on for nearly 16 hours, supporters and opponents held rival vigils through the frigid night outside the Congress building in Buenos Aires. “Marriage between a man and a woman has existed for centuries, and is essential for the perpetuation of the species,” insisted Sen. Juan Perez Alsina, who is usually a loyal supporter of the president but gave a passionate speech against gay marriage. But Sen. Norma Morandini, another member of the president’s party, compared the discrimination closeted gays face to the oppression imposed by Argentina’s dictators decades ago. “What defines us is our humanity, and what runs against humanity is intolerance,” she said. Same-sex civil unions have been legalized in Uruguay, Buenos Aires and some states in Mexico and Brazil. Mexico City has legalized gay marriage. Colombia’s Constitutional Court granted same-sex couples inheritance rights and allowed them to add their partners to health insurance plans. But Argentina now becomes the first country in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide, granting gays and lesbians all the same rights and responsibilities that heterosexuals have. These include many more rights than civil unions, including adopting children and inheriting wealth.

Baker sees café as jolly good opportunity

Award-winning cookies featured Brittney Moody Staff writer

Keith Jolly has successfully opened the doors to his new downtown Petoskey business, Jolly’s Cookies & Café. Its doors opened June 17 at 440 E. Mitchell St., with a selection of cookies offered to customers. Since then, many items — including sandwiches, salads and other treats — have been added to the menu. “I was fortunate enough to find people with experience where I’m lacking,” said Jolly, who provides much of the baking expertise.


Keith Jolly is seen behind a cookie display case at his new downtown Petoskey business, Jolly’s Cookies and Café. When careers in automotive photography and advertising were taking a fall, Jolly took the opportu-

nity to look into new ventures. “I had been watching the real estate in this area for

years,” Jolly said. “When we finally star ted this, everyone from downstate was envious.” Jolly and his wife, Betsy, who spent most of their life together in the Detroit area, had been coming to Petoskey during the summer for nearly 16 years. The thought of owning a café, according to Jolly, would only work well in an area like Petoskey. “As part of my work in advertising I traveled a lot, and every time I went to coffee shops and cafes, I looked at how they operated and decorated,” Jolly said. “Jolly’s is a mix and match of San Francisco to Ohio.” H i s i n t e re s t i n c a f é s stemmed from friends and

Retail sales drop 0.5 percent in June

■ Report offers

more evidence of slowing recovery

WASHINGTON (AP) — Retail sales fell in June for the second straight month, more evidence that the recovery will slow in the second half of the year. Spending on retail goods dropped 0.5 percent in June, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday. That followed a 1.1 percent fall in May. Excluding autos, spending was down 0.1 percent in June. Pulling down the overall June figures was a drop in auto sales and declining gas prices. When taking those out, sales would have risen 0.1 percent for the month. S e p a r at e ly, t h e C o m merce Department said that business inventories rose 0.1 percent in May.

But sales dropped 0.9 percent, the first decline since March 2009. Americans are spending less and that could threaten the pace of the recovery. Consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity. But consumers have held back because of high unemployment and other signs that have dampened their confidence, such as the volatile stock market and a struggling housing market. “June’s retail sales figures add to the growing batch of evidence suggesting that the economic recovery shifted into a lower gear towards the end of the second quarter,” Paul Dales, U.S. economist at Capital Economics, wrote in a research note. “Activity at the end of the quarter was much weaker than at the beginning.” Dales said he was not

looking for the economy to slip back into recession. But he expects overall economic growth to be disappointing for the rest of this year and into 2011. One encouraging sign for the economy is that companies are spending more on technology. Intel, the world’s No. 1 semiconductor company, this week reported its biggest quarterly net income in a decade. The company’s second-quarter earnings figures showed that large corporations are now buying more computers that use Intel’s most expensive chips. June is typical a time when stores clear out their merchandise to make room for fall products. But stores were forced to deepen discounts even more than planned to draw recessionscarred shoppers. The overall decline in

retail sales was dragged d ow n by a 2 . 3 p e r c e n t plunge in auto sales, the biggest monthly drop since auto sales fell 2.5 percent in February. Also, falling fuel prices pulled down gasoline stations sales by 2 percent. Some industries showed signs of strength in June. Department stores sales posted a 1.1 percent gain. The larger category of general merchandise stores, which includes such big retailers such as Wal-Mart, posted a 0.2 percent increase, but that followed a 1 percent drop in May. Sales at speciality clothing stores were up 0.6 percent in June. Sales at appliance stores posted a 1.3 percent advance. But there was weakness at hardware stores, where sales dropped 1 percent, and at furniture stores, which saw a decline of 1.1 percent.

Literate Matters



Nussbaum advocates for liberal arts

Martha Nussbaum starts with a simple assumption in her new book “Not For Profit.” Nussbaum, professor of law and ethics at the University of Chicago, assumes the purpose of education is enlightened citizens, capable of navigating the difficulties of a constantly shifting political and social landscape. From this vantage point, Nussbaum argues for the necessity of a broad based liberal arts education, rather than a narrow focus on math and science. Subtitled “Why Democracy Needs The Humanities,” Nussbaum’s slim Glen volume examines Young the history of liberal arts education, not only in the United States, but abroad as well, principally India. Nussbaum focuses on Rabindranath Tagore, an early 20th century Indian educator and artist. John Stuart Mill likely exerted a lasting influence on the Nobel Prize winner for literature in 1913. Tagore, Nussbaum tells us, believed deeply in the “religion of man,” while Mill espoused a “religion of humanity.” These intersecting ideas both, she points out, put the student at the center of the educational equation. Nussbaum believes, “Given that economic growth is so eagerly sought by all nations, especially at this time of crisis, too few questions have been posed about the direction of education.” Nussbaum does not argue that science and math should be jettisoned, but that the liberal arts are “at risk of getting lost in the competitive flurry,” and that the skills learned here are “crucial to the health of any democracy internally, and to the creation of a decent world culture capable of constructively addressing the world’s most pressing problems.” Early in her treatise, Nussbaum does acknowledge, “The national interest of any modern democracy requires a strong economy and a flourishing business climate.” These goals, however, must be counterweighted with the idea that, “Democratic participation makes wider demands.” The ability to empathize with others is the crux of solving these pressing problems, Nussbaum argues. “The ability to imagine the experiences of another … needs to be greatly enhanced and refined if we are to have any hope of sustaining decent institutions across the many divisions that any modern society contains.” Nussbaum links her premise to the historically viable “Socratic Method,” which relies on the teacher as facilitator, rather than as a delivery mechanism for linear information. So called because Socrates is said to have taught this way, this method is de rigueur in humanities classes, but less commonly applied in other classrooms. Other, less student-centered approaches, are usurping Socratic Method, however. “To the extent that standardized tests are becoming the norm by which schools are measured, then, Socratic aspects of both curriculum and pedagogy are likely to be left behind.” Ultimately, Nussbaum argues, “Young people must gradually come to understand both the differences that make understanding difficult between groups and nations, and the shared human needs and interests that make understanding essential if common problems are to be solved.” Her detractors believe Nussbaum is naïve, but in “Not For Profit,” she offers a compelling argument for how the arts are necessary to sustain democracy.

Help needed to send support to local troops Rachel Brougham 439-9348 -


OYNE CITY — Julie Howard of Boyne City knows first hand how hard it is to be away from her family and friends while serving overseas. So Howard, a U.S. Army veteran who served in Desert Storm, hopes to send local troops a little love from home. “We have so much stuff to send to our troops, but we just don’t know where we need to send it,” Howard said. “We’re asking the community for a little help.” Howard and other members of the American Legion Post in Boyne City, recently received several thousand dollars worth of items to ship to area troops. But because of privacy issues, they are having a hard time gathering information about where to ship the packages. “We’re just trying to get in touch with all the people in the area who have family members in active duty,” Howard said. “We’re looking to collect names and addresses of those serving overseas, like in Iraq or Afghanistan, or even those serving stateside. Those serving stateside are still away from home and need to know they are appreciated.” Care package items came from a regional donation drive held by Edward Jones Investments. The company collected everything from clothing, to CDs, toiletries, food, batteries and cell phones. “Someone even donated a bunch of fudge made here in Northern Michigan,” Howard said. “So we’ll be able to send that off and give someone a taste of home.” The American Red Cross of Northwest Michigan is assisting in the collection of names and addresses. “We’ve also been having some problems tracking down information on where to send items to local military personnel serving overseas,” said Lori O’Neill,

BAY VIEW — “If there is one thing crucial for the survival of classical music in the future, it is getting kids excited while they’re young,” noted Chris Ludwa, artistic director of the Bay View Music Festival.

Following the short scene, the Bay View Wind Quintet, accompanied by a narrator, will tell the musical tale of Peter and the Wolf, in which each instrument represents a different character with a memorable musical theme. This concert also includes a preview of Carrie Newcomer, a folk singer who will perform with author and humorist Philip Gulley at 8 p.m. Monday, July 19. The evening will conclude with selections from the awardwinning Broadway musical The Secret Garden, in which a cast of Bay View artists will present the climax and finale of this story of redemption spurred by love and support from loved ones.

personnel from the area receive a care package. “We want all our soldiers to know that we at home are thinking of them,” Howard explained. “We just need a little help in making sure everyone from our area receives a little love from home.” If you have a family member deployed overseas or on active duty stateside, call the American Legion Post in Boyne City at (231) 582-7811, or e-mail Julie Howard at snjhoward96@yahoo. com, or the Red Cross of Northwest Michigan at info@arcnlm. org.

Football’s Woodson among guests at Bay Harbor home which burned Christina Rohn 439-9398 -

BAY HARBOR — Green Bay Packers cornerback, Heisman Trophy winner and former University of Michigan defenseman, Charles Woodson, escaped a house fire in Bay Harbor Saturday, July 10. According to Joe Nachtrab, a Bay Harbor resident who witnessed the fire, Woodson was one of several guests staying at the multi-million dollar home, located at 6774 N. Preserve Drive, which is at the western end of the luxury resort community, when it caught fire early Saturday. Wo o d s o n t o l d t h e A s s o c i ated Press in a phone interview Wednesday that he was, in fact,

one of the guests at the home. John Calabrese, director of the Petoskey Department of Public Safety, said occupants reportedly smelled smoke around 4 a.m., but didn’t call it in. He said it wasn’t until a fire alarm began going off around 4:43 a.m. that emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene. The home was soon engulfed in flames, and by 7:30 a.m., it was declared a total loss. Chris Etienne, community relations director for Bay Harbor, told the News-Review in an e-mail Sunday, July 11, that the owners of the home had been celebrating a large donation and the naming of the University of Michigan Women’s Hospital the night before, along with many guests.

According to a Dec. 17, 2009, news release from the University of Michigan Health System, Ted and Jane Von Voigtlander’s Foundation donated $15 million to the health system for a new women’s hospital, which would be known as the University of Michigan Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital. Gwen Haggerty, Von Voigtlanders’ daughter, is reportedly the owner of the Bay Harbor home which caught fire. Etienne reported that the owners, along with 14 guests and three children, were in the home at the time that the fire broke out. All were able to escape with no injuries. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the blaze.


“It would almost act like a launching ramp,” Radulski said. He added that a couple of redesign options — each of which would involve blocking off the west leg of Pickerel Lake Road at the intersection — could help pave the way for a signal. “We’re trying to work with the community and give different options,” Radulski said One of these options — one which MDOT believes could be challenging to complete — would involve a southward extension of Konle Road, a north-south route that currently runs between M119 and Pickerel Lake Road, to link U.S. 31 with the area to the north. The proposal would extend Konle Road southward for a few hundred feet, linking it with U.S. 31 just west of the Pickerel Lake Road intersection. The west leg of Pickerel Lake Road would then be closed off at U.S. 31 — possibly with the installation of a berm — leaving a three-way intersection


day, a helicopter was dispatched by the U.S. Coast Guard station in Sault Ste. Marie, said Coast Guard Operations Specialist 2nd Class Chris Babcock. “They (the kayakers) were able to stay warm by starting a fire,” Babcock said. The men were spotted by the Coast Guard helicopter on the beach. The Emmet County Sheriff ’s Department, as well as EMS and local fire department support, established a mobile headquarters near Cross Village during the search. Both men were flown to Harbor Springs Municipal Airport, before being released without requiring medical attention.

where a traffic light would more workable. But if Konle Road was extended toward U.S. 31, Radulski said officials would have to address a steep downhill grade as the new road approached the state highway. Building the new link with a safe design could be costly, Radulski said, and right of way would need to be secured from property owners in the area. Another option would be to proceed with the closure of Pickerel Lake Road’s west leg at the U.S. 31 junction without developing an alternate route. Bear Creek Township supervisor Dennis Keiser said township officials previously have taken a stance against this type of closure if it doesn’t involve a replacement route — and expects they would continue to do so. MDOT hopes any work to reconfigure the intersection could take place in 2013, Radulski said. The agency also would have the option of leaving the intersection

as-is, he added. A speed-limit reduction on Pickerel Lake Road may not be an option to resolve the safety concerns standing in the way of a traffic light. The traffic-flow data which Michigan State Police standards call for in speed-limit reviews must be gathered along a straight stretch of road, Emmet County Road Commission engineer-manager Brian Gutowski said, and there’s not a straight segment on that part of Pickerel Lake Road that’s long enough to collect them. This week, Gutowski said he planned to contact property owners near the intersection to get their input on the redesign options. If officials decide they’d like to move forward in blocking off the Pickerel Lake Road leg, Gutowski said a road abandonment process — which would require the road commission to schedule a public hearing — would need to be followed.

CARP FROM A1 Northeast Indiana. The marsh, known as Eagle Creek, often floods and then serves as a temporary connection between the Wabash and Maumee Rivers. Asian carp have been found in the Wabash River system and the Maumee River is a tributary to Lake Erie. The hope is that the mesh net will stop the carp until a more permanent solution can be developed. “This is a serious situation and we should avoid having the fish get into Lake Michigan, but having them get into Lake Erie is even worse,” Carl explained. “The carp habitat in Lake Erie would be exceptional for them because it is shallow and full of plankton.” Carl went on to say that if the carp make it into Lake Erie, it would only be a matter of time before they migrate to the rest of the

Great Lakes. A new effort is also under way to harvest the invasive species. On Tuesday, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn announced his state will enter into a partnership with a Chinese meat processing company to harvest 30 million pounds of Asian carp from Illinois rivers. The meat will then be shipped to international markets where it is considered a delicacy. The partnership is expected to create 180 jobs. Quinn called the agreement, “one of the most aggressive efforts to address the Asian carp problem, and a critical step to long-term economic sustainability and the success of the commercial fishing industry.” Quinn also believes harvesting Asian carp will take some pressure of the electronic barrier set up by the Army Corps of Engineers.


sociated Press. “I’m focused on getting as many votes for Democratic candidates as I can in the fall, and leave these other parties to their own devices.” Tea Party candidates on the November ballot could draw votes away from other party’s nominees. Some Republicans see Wednesday’s filing as a ploy to trick voters into picking Tea Party candidates rather than Republican ones, even if the official Tea Party candidates have little in common with traditional tea party values. T h e sig natu re s we re file d Wednesday after noon by Eric Tincher of Kalamazoo. Mark Steffek was listed as the party chairman and John Roby was listed as secretary. Steffek registered The Tea Party as political party

committee with the secretary of state’s office in May. A message seeking comment was left Wednesday for Steffek, who lives in Reese in Tuscola County. A phone number couldn’t be found for Tincher. The number of signatures filed Wednesday is far more than the 38,013 needed to get a new party on the November ballot. If the filers also met the requirement to get at least 100 signatures from at least half of the state’s 15 congressional districts, they could nominate candidates to run in the general election. Those candidates would have be nominated by Aug. 3, the date of the primary election, said Kelly Chesney of the secretary of state’s office. The last time a political party that wasn’t already

qualified for the November ballot filed petitions was in the 2000 election cycle, when both the U.S. Taxpayers Party and the Green Party filed, she said. An umbrella group called the Michigan Tea Party Alliance says on its website that the tea party groups it represents aren’t interested in creating a separate third party. “We are not associated with any attempts to for m a third party in the state of Michigan,” the alliance said in a statement. “We believe that such efforts are unproductive and unwise at this time. The history of third party movements in this country is one of division and defeat.” Weiser said the Michigan GOP continues to work with tea party activists on a variety of issues.

Fed eyes steps to bolster sputtering recovery

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve officials cut their forecasts for growth this year and signaled they stood ready to take new steps to keep the recovery alive if the economy worsens. A new document, released Wednesday, revealed a more cautious mood among the Fed policymakers in light of Europe’s debt crisis, a volatile Wall Street, a stalled housing market and high unemployment. With risks growing, Fed officials at their June 22-23 meeting saw the need to explore new options for bolstering the economy. That’s a turnaround from earlier this year when they were moving to wind down crisis-era supports. No new specific steps were disclosed or agreed upon at that time. However, if the recovery were to deteriorate, Fed policymakers

have options. They could revive programs to buy mortgage securities or government debt. They could lower the rates banks pay for emergency Fed loans. The Fed also could create a new program to spark more lending to businesses and consumers in a bid to lure them to ratchet up spending and grow the economy. The economic and political hurdles for taking such action would be high, economists said. “If the economy takes a nasty spill, then yes, it would take new policy action. But if we continue to see kind of mediocre, ho-hum growth, then that won’t be enough for them to move,” said Michael Feroli, an economist at JPMorgan Chase. In the end, Fed Chairman Ben Ber nanke and his colleagues agreed at the June meeting to

hold a key interest rate at a record low near zero to help energize the economy. And they repeated a pledge to keep rates there for an “extended period.” At that time, Fed policymakers said they didn’t think the slowing in the economy seen thus far warranted new stimulative actions besides those already in place, according to the minutes of the June meeting. However, Fed officials said the central bank “would need to consider whether further policy stimulus might become appropriate if the outlook were to worsen appreciably,” the document stated. Fed officials concluded that the “economic outlook had softened somewhat.” In fact, one-half of Fed officials saw “risks to growth as having moved to the downside.”

Alpenfest begins GAYLORD — It’s that time of year in Gaylord. It’s time for carnival rides and street food. For music, dancing and games. For saying “Now This is Swiss.” Gaylord’s 46th annual Alpenfest started Tuesday and continues through Saturday in the heart of the Swiss-inspired town. The festival began in 1964 to celebrate the city’s new look and the opening of U.S. Plywood, which later became Georgia-Pacific. Since then, Alpenfest revelers have celebrated by wearing traditional Swiss garb, including lederhosen, dirndls and blumen kranzes — or leather shorts, dresses and flower wreaths. N e w t h i s ye a r is the “Alpenfest Idol” contest where singers and musical performers can show off their talents during tryouts Friday for a shot to perform during the finals Saturday on the Alpenstage. This year also features the inaugural “Alpenfest Stone Throw” where competitors will try to hurl a 122-pound granite rock as far as they can. A smaller, 44-pound stone is available for women and children to throw. Alpenfest culminates Saturday with the Alpenfest Idol finals and a concert by Bob Seger tribute band, The System. The Petoskey Steel Drum Band will perform at 2 p.m. Saturday under the Pavilion on Court Street.

Some preventative screenings may be no-cost to patients

WA S H I N G T O N ( A P ) — From counseling for kids who struggle with their weight, to cancer screenings for their parents, preventive health care will soon be available at no out-of-pocket cost under consumer rules the Obama administration unveiled Wednesday. That means no copays, deductibles or coinsurance for people whose health insurance plans are covered by the new requirements. The Obama administration estimates that 41 million Americans will benefit initially, with the number projected to rise to 88 million by 2013. Many large company plans, which usually offer solid preventive benefits, will be exempt from the requirements for the time being. Better preventive coverage is one of the goals of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law, part of a shift to try to catch problems early, before high cholesterol can lead to heart disease. “Services like these will go a long way in preventing chronic illnesses that consume over 75 percent of the health care spending in this country,” said first lady Michelle Obama, announcing the new benefits at a Washington hospital. Better preventive care may be an investment, but it still carries an upfront cost. Premiums will go up by 1.5 percent on average, as spending for the services is spread broadly across an entire pool of insured people. Fo r i n d iv i d u a l s wh o are diligent about their checkups, that can mean considerable out-of-pocket savings. For example, a 58year-old woman at risk of heart disease could save at least $300 out of her own

Cheney has heart surgery

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Vice President Dick Cheney disclosed Wednesday that he has undergone surgery to install a small pump to help his heart work, as the 69-year-old enters a new phase of what he called “increasing congestive heart failure.” “The operation went very well and I am now recuperating,” a stillhospitalized Cheney said in a statement. The kind of heart pump that Cheney received can be implanted Cheney next to the heart to help its main pumping chamber, the left ventricle, pump blood through the body. Such devices are used mainly for short periods, to buy potential transplant candidates time as they await a donor organ. But they are being studied for use as a permanent therapy for people with severe heart failure who aren’t transplant candidates. The surgery took place last week at Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Institute in Washington’s Northern Virginia suburbs, where Cheney was receiving care Wednesday. A longtime face of the Republican Party, Cheney has dealt with heart problems much of his adult life, suffering five heart attacks since age 37. He said the latest step, the implanting of a pump called a left ventricular assist device, will allow him to resume an active life. About 5 million Americans have congestive heart failure in which the heart weakens over time — often as a result of heart attacks — and cannot pump enough blood. Heart transplants are one solution, but few patients find a donor and many are too old or sick for a transplant. The heart pump Cheney received, known as an LVAD for short, is not a cure, said Dr. Samer Najjar, medical director of the heart transplant and LVAD division at Washington Hospital Center.

budget on recommended tests, ranging from diabetes and cholesterol screening, to a mammogram and a flu shot. Research has shown that people tend to skip recommended preventive care if cost is an issue, and even a modest copayment can make a difference. Cost-free prevention was one idea that received widespread support during the contentious health care debate last year in Congress. The prevention require-

ments take effect for health plans renewing on or after Sept. 23, which means most beneficiaries will see them starting Jan. 1. Coincidentally, that’s also when Medicare recipients get access to most preventive services at no out-of-pocket cost — another change under the health care law. Under the requirements announced Wednesday, health insurance plans have to cover four sets of preventive services at no additional charge to their

members. These include: — Screenings strongly recommended with a grade of “A” or “B” by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent advisory panel. Among them are breast and colon cancer tests, screening of pregnant women for vitamin deficiencies, tests for diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, as well as counseling to help smokers quit. — Routine vaccines from childhood immunizations

to tetanus boosters for adults. — Well-baby visits to a pediatrician, vision and hearing tests for kids, and counseling to help youngsters maintain a healthy weight. These and other services are recommended under guidelines developed by the government and the American Academy of Pediatrics. — Women’s health screenings, also to include test called for under guidelines that are still in development and not expected to be be

announced until Aug., 2011. Large employer plans will not be affected by the new requirements if they are “grandfathered” under the health overhaul law. Lawmakers created that exception so Obama could deliver on his promise that the law would not force wholesale changes in existing insurance plans. However, as employers make changes to their plans, many stand to lose the exemption, meaning they would eventually have to comply.

Proposed $1.1 million Burt Lake Trail concept closing in on funding, fruition at the corner of East Burt Lake Road. Ideally, both sections would eventually connect by about 2012. “But that means we get our easements, we get our grant and we get our donations by that time,” Street said. “There are usually delays with projects like this.” This trail committee will look for about $150,000 in donations by September to match a Michigan Natural Resource Trust Fund grant of about $500,000. A separate Michigan Department of Transportation Grant of about $450,000 is also being sought. The initial sections are expected to cost about $1.1 million. Engineering firm C2AE from Gaylord completed a preliminary engineering study for the trail in 2009, identifying safety issues and potential properties where residents would be asked for easements. Burt and Mullet townships are both currently involved in the planning of the project. During the coming months, the Top of Michigan Trails Council will provide oversight and community experience for the Burt Lake Trail project. “We are particularly excited about working with the Burt Lake Trail Committee,” said Jeff Winegard, executive director of the Top of Michigan Trails Council. “It is great to be work-

BRUTUS — A proposed 17mile recreational trail from Topinabee to Brutus following the Burt Lake shoreline could become more than a concept before the fall. The effort, being spearheaded by the Burt Lake Trail Committee and the Top of Michigan Trails Council, would essentially laterally connect the North Central Trail spanning from Gaylord to Mackinaw City to a similar, former railway trail from Petoskey to Mackinaw City. While the exact route is still in the planning phase, organizers plan to develop a crushed limestone, non-motorized trail which could potentially run along Brutus, Douglas Lake or Riggsville roads, as well as Hogsback Road, East Burt Lake Road and Topinabee Mail Road. The concept was developed by the Burt Lake Trail Committee in 2008, but has been moving slowly to involve the surrounding community and residents. “We’re going to do this in phases,” said Gary Street, Burt Lake committee chairman, who lives on the proposed trail route. “To get all the money to do this all at once would be a horrendous task.” The first phase, Street said, would begin at Maple Bay Campground and go to Hardwood Road. A second phase would begin near Hoppies Tavern

ing with a group of committed volunteers trying to improve their community with a beautiful, safe trail. Our role is to make their life easier by providing them with technical advice and


administrative support.” Committee chair man Street said at this point, the most important phase of the project will be getting the support of residents to build the trail along the

various property lines. “We could probably get the donations we need from a few people,” Street said. “But, we want to get lots of small donations and gain the support of the area resi-

dents who will be using the trail.” For more infor mation about the Burt Lake Trail, go to the Burt Township website at

Swat Valley blast kills five MINGORA, Pakistan (AP) — An apparent suicide bombing near a bus ter minal in Pakistan’s Swat Valley killed five people and wounded at least 58 on Thursday, officials said, a sign that Islamist militants remain active in the

northwest region despite a massive army operation. The explosion went off around noon in Mingora, the main town in the onetime tourist haven that was largely overrun by Taliban militants in 2007. Pakistani TV foota g e

showed vehicles bent and twisted due to the force of the blast. Some men were desperately trying to open the doors of a car to reach a wo m a n a n d m a n s i t ting in the front who were bloodied and appeared unconscious.

Strom comes from behind to win Women’s Open

Road block

■ If Tigers are to

contend, they’ll have to play better away from home Larry Lage Associated Press

DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers have been tough to beat at Comerica Park, dominating the competition with an American Leaguebest 32-13 record at home. Away from the Motor City, the Tigers have been pretty bad with a 16-25 mark, and manager Jim

Leyland said that has to change. “We have to play better on the road if we’re going to contend for anything in the second half,” Leyland said. The quest starts in Cleveland, where the Tigers will play Friday night in their first game after the All-Star break. Detroit will resume play a half-game behind the surging Chicago White Sox and three games ahead of the defending division champion Minnesota Twins. “I know we are a good team,” AllStar closer Jose Valverde said. “But we have to prove that on the road.” The Tigers haven’t done that yet. They’re averaging 5-plus runs at home while giving up just under four a game. When Detroit hits the

road, opponents are averaging 5.2 runs while it scores barely more than four times a game. Leyland called the post-break schedule “grueling” because the Tigers will travel to play AL Eastand AL West-leading New York and Texas, along with Tampa Bay and Boston outside of matchups in their competitive division. He wished the team had another reliable starter, or two, some help for Valverde in the bullpen and perhaps some more punch toward the bottom of the lineup. The Tigers will look to acquire a reliever by July 31 — the last day to trade a player without securing waivers — to try to make up for losing Joel Zumaya to another season-ending injury.

Re-start WHAT: The Tigers open the second half of the season with a three-game series at Cleveland. SCHEDULE: 7:05 p.m. Friday, July 16, and Saturday, July 17; 1:05 p.m. Sunday, July 18. TV/RADIO: All three games on FSD/WMKT-AM 1270, 92.1 FM Whatever happens, Leyland is confident the team will give its fans a reason to watch the rest of the season unfold for the fourth time in his five seasons in charge.

THOMPSONVILLE — Lisa Strom of Huntersville, N.C., drained a clutch 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole Wednesday to win the Michigan Women’s Open on the Mountain Ridge Course at Crystal Mountain. Strom, 33, finished the 54-hole tournament with a 2-under par 214. Suzy GreenRoebuck of Ann Arbor, who led after each of the first two rounds, finished at 1-under 215. Strom won her first Michigan Women’s Open in 2007. Green-Roebuck, 42, entered the final round with a threeshot cushion, but gave away a stroke on the first hole with a bogey, the first of four during the round. She had just three combined bogeys through the first 36 holes of the tournament. Strom collected $5,500 of the $40,000 purse. She now heads out to the Duramed Future’s Tour for three events and then back to the LPGA Tour when it returns from Asia. Elaine Crosby, 52, of Jackson and Sue Ertl, 52, formerly of Ionia, finished tied for third at even par.

Vanderbilt coach retires


The ‘Biggest’ House ■ Expansion puts

Michigan Stadium back atop heap Larry Lage Associated Press

ANN ARBOR — The University of Michigan made a lot of changes to the Big House, erecting luxury boxes and club seats in towering structures that loom along both sidelines as part of a $226 million renovation. It also increased the seating capacity to 109,901 for this season — up about 2,000 — to reclaim the distinction away from Penn State of having the largest football stadium in the country. Athletic director Dave Brandon is already envisioning the iconic venue getting even bigger. “We’re already looking at future expansion,” he said Wednesday after the media and public got a chance to tour the new-look stadium. Brandon said the project — which started a day after the 2007 season ended — is on budget and time. He said revenue generated by suites and club seats have already covered costs. “It’s already a financial win,” he said. But the school still has some selling to do before the opener Sept. 4 at home against Connecticut. Twenty of the 81 suites are availSee STADIUM on PAGE B3

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt coach Bobby Johnson retired abruptly as the Commodores’ head coach for what he called personal reasons. Vice Chancellor David Williams announced the news in a post on the university’s athletic website just before a news conference. Minutes later, the 59-year-old Johnson stepped up to a podium and said he was retiring from college football. Johnson called it a very difficult decision but one not prompted by health concerns for either himself or his wife. Williams announced that Robbie Caldwell will be the interim head coach after serving as assistant head coach.

Labadie and coach Rich Rodriguez were among the seven people who received a letter of reprimand from the school for playing a role in what the NCAA

SISTERON, France — Andy Schleck of Luxembourg is leading defending champion Alberto Contador by 41 seconds as the Tour de France riders begin the 11th stage of the three-week race. The route Thursday is a 114-mile trek from Sisteron to Bourg-les-Valence, which features a category 3 climb up the Col de Cabre about 35 miles after the start. The rest of the stage is mainly flat and should favor sprinters. Spain’s Contador has won the Tour twice, while Schleck is looking for his first triumph after finishing second last year ahead of seven-time champion Lance Armstrong. The American was 31st before stage 11, more than 17 minutes behind Schleck.

that charged Rodriguez with a failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance in his program. Brandon has said it would be “a significant leap” to say Michigan gained a competitive advantage from the violations and the school shouldn’t be tagged as a repeat offender despite a 2003 scandal in the basketball program.

Both will be key arguments at the hearing because either one would almost certainly lead to harsher penalties from the NCAA. Michigan has received nearly $500,000 in bills for legal and other expenses related to the investigation and so far, the Veritas Insurance Co. has paid all invoices.

the amount of time it said it exceeded NCAA rules. It also trimmed the number of assistants — the so-called quality-control staff — from five to three and banned them from practices, games or coaching meetings for the rest of 2010.

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy watches his third tee shot during the first round of the British Open, Thursday, at St. Andrews in Scotland. ASSOCIATED PRESS

McIlroy rips through a defenseless St. Andrews ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — The Old Course was defenseless and no one took advantage of it more than Rory McIlroy. T h e 2 1 - ye a r- o l d f r o m Northern Ireland tied the major championship record Thursday by shooting a 9-under 63 in the opening round of the British Open. One of golf ’s brightest prospects, McIlroy started his romp with an eagle at the 352-yard ninth, where he drove the green and rolled in the putt. He then made six birdies on the homeward holes for a 30 that tied the tournament’s back-nine record. McIlroy became only the eighth player to go so low at the British Open, equaling a mark from 17 years ago

by the late Payne Stewart at Royal St. George. Overall, just 22 players have shot 63 in one of the four major tournaments, including Greg Norman and Vijay Singh, who each did it twice. The last to do it: Tiger Woo ds at the 2007 PGA Championship. “I didn’t get off to a flying start,” McIlroy said. “The eagle on 9 really sort of turned things around for me, and I just got going from there. It was great to get into the rhythm of the round and get into a flow. And yeah, it was a very pleasant round of golf.” McIlroy had a chance to claim the record all to himself. A brilliant approach at No. 17, the famed “Road Hole,”

left him with a 5-footer for birdie. But the putt slid wide of the cup, and McIlroy rolled back his head in disappointment after tapping in the par, knowing that he had squandered a chance at a truly historic score. While no one ever expects to shoot 63 in a major, it was certainly a day for posting a low number. The birthplace of golf played like a muni, with hardly any wind blowing in off St. Andrews Bay and only a sprinkling of rain. In fact, the sun popped out just as McIlroy was finishing up, and competitors were able to strip off their jackets and play in short sleeves. When the expected storms didn’t materialize, at least for the morning starters,


The King reminisces ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — Arnold Palmer gazed out the window from Russacks Hotel on Wednesday morning and felt the clock turn back a half century. He saw the people walking toward the Old Course, mowers preparing St. Andrews for practice, the expanse of a golf course with all its humps and mounds. The King grew emotional talking about it later, and he had every right. The British Open might not be what it is today without Palmer. The U.S. turned into a golfing power after World War II, yet few Americans bothered to play golf ’s oldest championship — partly because links golf was foreign to them and the prize money couldn’t offset travel costs. Palmer, who raised golf ’s profile in his own country, was determined to play. “I felt that if you were going to be a champion, you couldn’t be a champion without playing in the Open and hopefully winning the Open,” he said. “So that was part of the whole program for what I was doing.” Palmer won the Masters and U.S. Open in 1960. On his way to St. Andrews for his first British Open, a conversation with sports writer Bob Drum led Palmer to effectively create the modern version of the Grand Slam. He finished one shot be-

hind Kel Nagle. Palmer won his claret jugs at Royal Birkdale in 1961 and Royal Troon in 1962. E ve n s o, S t . A n d rew s remains a big part of his life. Palmer was given an honorary degree at the St. Andrews University on Tuesday. The only disappointment was not getting to play in the “Champions Challenge” because of bad weather Wednesday. That brought back memories, too. “It’s nor mal,” he said, referring to the wind and rain. “In 1960 — that’s the one thing that’s the same — the weather was just like it is now on one of the days of that championship. The wind blew, it rained. I said something about it then, and got the same answer. ’Hey, this is Scotland. You’ve got to expect it.’ And I loved it.” CINK AND THE CLARET JUG: Stewart Cink returned the claret jug that he won last year at Turnberry, and he made sure it was clean. That took more work than it might have for other past champions. The first drink poured from the jug was Guinness. Then there re was some fine wine for Cink and his wife, soda for his sons, even barbecue sauce. Turns out he used the jug to hold the sauce during a Fourth of July cookout at home in Georgia.

TIGERS FROM B1 “We’ve been pretty consistent for the most part, but we’ve got to do a little bit better in the second half than we’ve been and better in the division if we’re going to compete,” Leyland said. “I think we’ve given the fans a pretty good show since I’ve been here. “We had that one burp in ’08, but overall we’ve been pretty entertaining. I don’t think we’ve embarrassed anybody. We’ve got a superstar (Miguel Cabrera) and a horse pitcher (Justin Verlander). We’re OK. We’re not a great team, but a pretty good team.” Detroit played in the 2006 World Series — for the first time since 1984 — in Leyland’s first season, won 88 games the next year, then lost 88 two seasons ago. Last year, they lost the division

lead in the 163rd-game tiebreaker at Minnesota. Slugger Johnny Damon didn’t sign a one-year contract with Detroit just to extend his career, but because the veteran thought he could play on a championshipcontending team just as he did in recent years with the Yankees and Red Sox. But if the Tigers fall short of making the playoffs, he said the franchise’s future is bright with rookies such as Brennan Boesch, Austin Jackson, Danny Worth, Alex Avila and Robbie Weinhardt. “A bunch of these guys are maturing in front of our eyes,” Damon said. “This team is going to be good for a while even though some of us older guys won’t be around years down the road.”

Cink has more than 1.2 million followers on Twitter, and he thinks that helped create the idea there was never a dull moment with golf ’s oldest trophy. “It was really busy for the first two months or so, and then it sat in the house different places, got moved around,” Cink said. “The kids decided where it went sometimes. I realize now how much attention it draws everywhere around the world. We definitely put it to good use, and it was an honor to be in possession of it.” TIGER TALK: Top officials from the first two majors this year have criticized Tiger Woods. That hasn’t been the case at the British Open — so far. Royal and Ancient chief executive Peter Dawson has kept his thoughts to himself, saying only that he is glad Woods is playing and that he hopes he finds his game at St. Andrews. Asked if he shared Payne’s sentiments, Dawson said: “ We l l , yo u n o t i c e w e haven’t made such a statement. So I’ll just leave that one there.” Pressed further, Dawson said, “I think Tiger regrets many of the things of the past and, as he’s said, he is trying to put them right. And I believe he is doing it and I believe he’s succeeding, actually.”

there were red numbers all over the place. John Daly matched the best score of his Open career with a 66, a number that was equaled by Scottish journeyman Andrew Coltart. Woods shot a 67, showing this might be the week for his first victory since being tar nished by a sex scandal that had the British media speculating as much about his personal life as the prospects of him becoming the first player to win three Open titles at St. Andrews. The world’s top-ranked player romped to dominating wins in 2000 and 2005; a third straight would give him 15 majors titles, just three shy of Jack Nicklaus’ career record.


The world’s top-ranked player romped to dominating wins in 2000 and 2005, and he’s again a heavy favorite again. But Woods has yet to win since returning in April from a five-month layoff stemming from the sex scandal. Going with an iron, he knocked his first shot safely down the left side of the fairway and wound up with a par. He birdied the second hole and just missed another at No. 3, leaving his putt hanging on the lip of the cup. As always at the British Open, the weather figured to be the biggest factor. Daly was among those taking advantage of the favorable conditions early on. Fog hung over the course, but there was little wind and just a few sprinkles. Daly has been dogged by alcohol problems, failed marriages, financial woes and battles with weight, but the 44-year-old has managed to occasionally show off his considerable golf skills at the most opportune times. He won the 1991 PGA Championship as an unknown alternate, then captured the ’95 Open at St. Andrews in a memorable playoff with Costantino Rocca. Now, six years removed from his last win and after threatening to quit last season, he showed signs of putting together another unlikely performance. Mickelson had an afternoon tee tie.

STADIUM FROM B1 able and about 80 percent of the 2,952 club seats haven’t been sold yet. Brandon said he’s optimistic that giving people a chance to sit in comfy club seats and walk into posh suites — an opportunity they had for 14 hours Wednesday — will be great marketing that should boost sales. Season-ticket holder Ken Close, a 60-year-old resident

of Toledo, took advantage of the public tour because he doesn’t expect to have the money or a friend rich enough to see the premium seats again. “I think this is great,” Close said. “I know some traditionalists didn’t want to make these big changes, but I think they’re wonderful. We’ll make new memories here. You have to grow with the times.”

Danica humbled by struggles in stock cars Chris Jenkins AP Sports Writer

JOLIET, Ill. — Those who know Danica Patrick mainly for racy photo shoots and commercials are seeing something decidedly different in her public persona these days: humility. For a high-profile driver trying to make the transition from IndyCar to NASCAR, responding to high expectations by running outside the top 20 is a formula for modesty. “I just have a lot to learn,” Patrick said. “I don’t want to make excuses. It’s hard. So I think it’s been OK. I don’t know what else to say. I’m learning. I’m learning what I’m supposed to be doing, I’m learning with people watching — which is hard. But it’s just the way it is and I’m lucky that people are watching.” Patrick finished 24th in Friday night’s Nationwide series race at Chicagoland Speedway, her best finish in five starts in NASCAR’s second-tier series this season. Despite her tough transition, Patrick remains upbeat that she’ll eventually have success. Even if it’s going to take more time than she might have thought going into the season. “I’m starting to realize this is really challenging, it’s really hard,” Patrick said. “And I need to not be so hard on myself and I need to just stay upbeat and take every lap as an i m p r o ve m e n t f r o m t h e one before and just keep marching forward. I feel kind of bad that it’s not more amazing out there, and I’m not higher up and it’s more entertaining for fans and it’s a better story. But it’s just very hard, and I think it speaks volumes about how good these drivers are in stock cars, and how challenging it is.” In a sport where a driver and crew chief need precise, clear communication to make a car handle properly, Patrick doesn’t even really speak the language yet.

Rahal rejoins old team Associated Press

Graham Rahal finally has a regular ride. One of America’s best young drivers, the 21-yearold son of a racing legend is reteaming with Newman/ Haas Racing for six of the final eight IndyCar Series races, starting this weekend in Toronto. Rahal will drive the No. 02 car in five of the six races for Quick Trim, his sponsor at this year’s Indianapolis 500. Rahal, son of 1986 Indy 500 champ Bobby, was considered one of the best upand-coming IndyCar drivers while driving for Newman/ Haas from 2007-09. He became the youngest winner in series history at St. Petersburg in his IndyCar debut in 2008 and became the youngest pole sitter at the same track a year later on his way to finishing seventh in the season standings. But sponsorship issues left Rahal without a ride this season, forcing him to bounce around as a fill-in driver. He drove for Sarah Fisher in three of the series’ first four races, with a best finish of ninth at St. Pete, then joined up with his father’s Rahal Letterman Racing team at Indy, where he started seventh and finished 12th. Rahal will join Hideki Mutoh.


NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Danica Patrick looks around during the Dollar General 300 auto race at ChicagoMaking suspension adjustments on an Indy car has little or nothing to do with making suspension adjustments on a stock car, so Patrick can’t do much to help crew chief Tony Eury Jr. find the right setup at this point. “Is it a spring, is it the camber, is it the bar, is it geometry? I don’t have any idea,” Patrick said. “No idea. So I’m not very good at helping Tony Jr. go in a certain direction. All I can say is what the car is doing. I wish I could help out more with that, but that’s just going to come with time.” Although some established NASCAR drivers expressed annoyance about the amount of attention Patrick received at the beginning of the season, nobody’s really

knocking her for not running up front in stock cars right away. But some wonder if she’ll have to commit full time to NASCAR — and give up on IndyCar — to make the most of her talents. “Right now, she’s very limited because she’s still committed to the IRL schedule,” Kurt Busch said. “This is just a work in progress. We’ll have to wait and see the final product when she decides what road she’s going to go down.” Busch expects Patrick to eventually make a full-time move to NASCAR — “She’ll probably have a one-hour ESPN prime-time special when she wants to announce it,” he joked — and expects her to perform better once she does.

land Speedway in Joliet, Ill. Patrick has found modest success in stock-car racing. “I think once she commits full-time to NASCAR, she’ll have a better understanding of the flow and the feel, not just with the schedule, not just of the race car, but everything that has to happen,” Busch said. “It’s just not jumping in the car and wheeling it. You have to handle all the different areas of sponsor appearances, media requests and time with the team.” Adding to that argument is the sense that she has taken a step backward in IndyCar this season. Patrick insists that her part-time NASCAR schedule isn’t hurting her IndyCar efforts. And while she acknowledges that going to NASCAR full time probably would help her in the transition, she doesn’t think it

would make a huge difference. “If you want to be really good at anything, you have to obviously centralize your focus,” Patrick said. “But at this point in time, I have a tremendous amount to learn. If it was full-time would it be going better? Maybe. But it wouldn’t be some big, dramatic — I don’t think — difference.” Patrick intends to stick to her current plan through 2011. “We’re going to do the schedule like this for this year and next year, and then we’ll sort of assess where we’re at and what we want to do in the future,” Patrick said. “And maybe it’ll be more of both, maybe it’ll be one or maybe it’ll be the other. I’m really not sure.”

Dale Jr.’s No. 3 car displayed at NASCAR Hall of Fame CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The famed No. 3 car Dale Earnhardt Jr. drove to victory in this month’s Nationwide race at Daytona was added as a temporary display at the new NASCAR Hall of Fame on Wednesday. The Wrangler-sponsored yellow and blue Chevrolet, which honors his father, the late Dale Earnhardt Sr., will stay at the downtown Charlotte facility through Sept. 19. The car carries extra significance because Earnhardt, who didn’t attend the unveiling, has said he doesn’t plan to drive a No. 3 car again. “That was Dale’s meaning around it, a tribute to our dad,” said Kelley Earnhardt, Dale Jr.’s sister and co-owner of JR Motorsports. “So it’s not something he wants to do every day.” Earnhardt entered the No. 3, a replica of the car his father drove in the 1980s, in the July 2 race to honor Dale Sr.’s induction into the Hall of Fame’s first class. Earnhardt then ended an 85-race winless drought in points races in an emotional night at the track where his father died in a last-lap crash in the 2001 Daytona 500. Getting the car to the $195 million Hall of Fame, which opened in May, had been a goal of director Winston Kelley for months. “Winston had asked me a couple months ago, actually

when he did the unveiling up at JR Motorsports, ’Can we have that car in the Hall of Fame?”’ Kelley Earnhardt said, smiling. “And as soon as Monday rolled around after the win, he was asking again.” The economics of JRM’s Nationwide team means it will be a temporary display as it searches for full-time sponsors and a permanent

driver for 2011. After its stint at the Hall of Fame, the body of the car will be cut off and hung at JRM’s shop. The chassis will be reused in future races. “We’d like to take the whole car, but we’re a Nationwide team,” Kelley Ear nhardt said. “That’s $150,000 sitting there that we can use somewhere. As long as we have the body we’ll be in good

shape.” Getting the car is a coup for the Hall of Fame, which is hoping to boost attendance to reach goals. “Whether they’re Dale Earnhardt fans or not, they love the history of the sport,” Kelley said of NASCAR fans at the unveiling. “This is this history of the sport and this helps validate what we’re all about.”

Do resentments, and hate produce illness? The Rev. Chuck Manker, BA, MA, ThB., MDiv.

In our quest for the “Abundant Life,” I again ask the question: Is the right thing always the healthy thing? Is the Kingdom of God in our tissues? As we have discovered God’s master design evidenced in the universe, orderliness, laws, by our scientists, has he written a moral law within us? Is there only one way life will work, as in chemistry, math? Last week we discovered, He has! There is a “moral The Rev. law within” as Chuck Kant, German Manker philosopher, discovered. The laws of the Kingdom of God are the very laws of our own nature. When we sin against God, we sin against ourselves. Psychologists and physicians are saying the great enemies of human personality are resentment, fear, self-centeredness, and a sense of guilt. The four things disrupt our lives, make us unhappy, unhealthy. Thus, Jesus message to us was love, faith, unselfishness, moral integrity, forgiveness. To him inward enmity does more harm than an outer enemy! His insistence on love is no mere sentimentalism, for life won’t bear up under hate, resentment. Most accept the destructive force of hostility in personal, domestic and social relationships, but we raise the question, does hate, grudges, resentments, produce illnesses. While doctors disagree as to percentage, the American Medical Assoc. has indicated that to be 40-50 percent. The British Medical Journal states: “There is not a tissue in the human body wholly removed from the influence of the spirit”. Then it does matter what our habits, attitudes of the spirit are! We don’t sin (hate, anxiety, fear, self centeredness) and “get away with it,” our sick spirits infect our bodies: Anger, hostility affect our digestion, aggravate ulcers, contribute to asthma, arthritis, mucous

colitis, heart and other diseases. The antidote? Jesus said, “love your enemies,” “do good to those who hate you”, “pray for those who despitefully use you”. I know, I know, some of you are saying, “but you just don’t know the abuse, belittling, nagging, meanness, betrayal, I’ve suffered”. The hurts are “so deep, unbearable”! I’ve heard so many such anguished stories in my counseling — and beyond these. What’s the way out? (a) Fix firmly in your mind an axiom that ALL hates, resentments, are wrong; justified or unjustified. (b) Surrender your resentment to God and ask His help in removing it. Don’t fight your resentments; surrender them. It will amaze you how He will heal the wounds. (c) Pray for the person who has hurt you. Actively forgive the one that has so deeply hurt you. Not only forgive, but tell them so. The telling is the catharsis, the cleansing. (d) Get on top of it! LOVE! But how, you ask? Here is the centnility of our Christian Faith: Jesus not only said, “Love God” and “Love your neighbor as yourself ’, we can experience God’s forgiving love in hearts. It’s real! Ask God, even now, to pour his love into your heart. When we commit our lives to him, he comes and fills our hearts with his transforming love. In our strength alone, we just can’t do it, but “with his love flooding our hearts by faith” we can overcome all the hates, bitterness, and hostilities that come into our lives. When Jesus began his ministry, he read from Isaiah until he came to the words, “the day of vengeance of our God.” Then he closed the book. You do the same. Leave vengeance to God. Use only redemptive goodwill. To indulge in hate, resentment is too expensive — for you. Jesus said, “I am come that ye may have life, and have it more abundantly!”

The Rev. Chuck Manker of Petoskey earned a bachelor of arts from Asbury College, a bachelor of theology from Owosso College (now Indiana Wesleyan University), a master of arts from the University of Michigan, and master of divinity from Drew University.

A friend in need The Rev. Curtis Alexander From the crucible of war come many stories of friendship. Under the stress of battle many have learned — and taught — lessons of unselfishness and self-sacrifice. Two soldiers became inseparable friends, though they hadn’t known each other prior to combat. They helped and protected each other across 200 miles of European battlefields. But one day, the two were separated, and one was stranded in no-man’s-land, wounded, unable to make it back to the shared foxhole, crying for help. The enemy crisscrossed the open land with a withering blanket of machine gun fire. It was sheer suicide to go to the suffering soldier. But his friend was determined to try. Before he could get all the way out of the foxhole, his sergeant shouted at him to put his head down; under children’s Sunday school for the summer. Gertrude Fairbairn will be the guest organist. Sunday afternoon Bible study begins at 12:30 p.m. with a potluck lunch. Vacation Bible school runs from 9 a.m.-noon Monday through Friday, July 19-23. Call (231) 526-2414 to register.

Curtis Alexander An encouraging word

no circumstances was he allowed to try a rescue. “It’s too late. You can’t do him any good, and you’ll only get yourself killed!” But in wartime, there are sometimes higher orders than a sergeant’s — or even a general’s. As soon as the noncom turned his back, the frantic friend leapt from the foxhole and rushed toward his wounded buddy. Minutes later he returned, mortally wounded himself, carrying his nowdead friend. The sergeant was furious, but deeply moved by the heroic act of friendship. “What a waste,” he blurted. “He’s dead, and you soon will be. It just wasn’t worth it!”

With his final breaths, the hero replied, “Oh, yes it was, Sarge. When I got to him, all he could say was, ‘I knew you’d come!’” True friendship is about more than self interest, more even, than survival. It’s about keeping a trust, being faithful, whatever the cost. “There is no greater love than this,” the Bible says, “that a man would lay down his life for his friend.” And one line in “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” is disputed, but both wordings speak volumes: One version says, “As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free.” The second version says, “ ... let us live to make men free.” Live or die, a real friend is such a treasure that no cost is too high.

The Rev. Dr. Curtis Alexander is adjunct professor of comparative religions at North Central Michigan College, and pastors Bliss Church in northern Emmet County.
