USA celebrates 236 years; it’s 25 for kazoo band

Mimi Gass has 50 new kazoos — two for each year the Glen Arbor Kazoo Band has participated in the Glen Arbor Fourth of July parade. “We thought the parade needed a musical group so my sister, mom and I invited our neighbors to meet at Old Settlers Picnic Grounds to practice,” Gass said. “We were the only Peninsula ones who showed up.” The band, which numbered abuzz about 15 that year, has grown to with an estimated 70 and there’s room for more. It will be part of patriotic another star-spangled Fourth of activity July celebration on tap across the Leelanau Peninsula. “I bought 50 new kazoos to mark the anniversary,” Gass said. The “Anything Goes” parade in Glen Arbor is one in a long list of activities making Leelanau County the place to be on the 236th anniversary of the founding of the United States. Whether you’re a patriot or a party-goer there’s something for everyone leading up to and on the mid-week holiday. Festivities begin Sunday morning with the (Concluded on Page 19)

In one of three developments in the race for the 104th district in the State House, the former tribal chair of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians filed his paperwork as a resident of Benzie County, not Leelanau. “Historically, that’s where the Baileys are from,” said Derek Bailey, in explaining his family’s move from Bingham Township to Honor.

Busy Fourth of July planned; hold onto your paper You’ll find this a larger edition of the Leelanau Enterprise full of information about the Fourth of July — which is good, because it will need to last an extra day. Because the Fourth falls on a Wednesday, we’ll go to press with the July 5 edition of the Enterprise a day late. Presses will start to turn next Thursday

afternoon, making newspapers available that late afternoon and evening. Local subscribers will receive the paper with their Friday mail. The extra day will allow us to provide coverage of Fourth of July events by the following day. We hope this week’s edition, all 72 pages, will keep readers busy until then. You’ll find a 16-page

Diversions section completely devoted to Fourth of July activities and themes, right down to a story about local teachers’ favorite signers of the Declaration of Independence. We’ve even included a full page copy of the Declaration for your review.

Still tops in cherries But number of farms, acres fall By Amy Hubbell of the Enterprise staff

BLACK SWEET cherries are going for between $5 and $8 a quart, about double that of a usual year due to a shortage of fruit.

the most we’ll have is 200 to 300 pounds,” Bakker said. Cause of the nearly non-existent crop is topsyturvy weather that hastened the development of fruit, resulting in blooms more than five weeks ahead of schedule. The early end to dormancy opened up dark sweets and all other fruit crops to weeks of frost damage. In addition, those blossoms that were able to withstand freezing temperatures were affected by a lack of pollination. Bees don’t like to work in cold or windy conditions. The Michigan Department of Agriculture is expected to release its cherry estimate today. However, some have suggested state growers lost about 80 percent of the sweet cherry crop this spring. Jim Bardenhagen, farmer and retired Michigan

Leelanau County still leads the state in the number of farms and acres in cherry production. That’s the good news. A just-released survey found that the county is down 400 acres in tart and sweet cherry orchards, and lost several farms over a five-year period. The trend, the survey shows, has been to fewer farms with more acres in cherry orchards. The Leelanau peninsula remains home to 11,250 acres of sweets and tarts, respectively — tops in sweets by a large margin and second in tarts. The only county Leelanau with more land in tarts is Oceana with 7,900 acres. still grows The next highest tallies are 1,500 acres of more sweets and 4,400 in cherries tarts, both in Grand Traverse County. than other The 2011 Michigan Fruit Inventory comcounties piled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service and the Michigan Department of Agriculture was released this week. In general, the survey turned up a slight decline in the number of acres planted in cherries across the state, but revealed a drop in the number of cherry farms.

Despite sting from high prices, cherries are selling The good news is there will be local sweet cherries available for the National Cherry Festival, which begins next week in Traverse City. The bad news: Consumers will pay from $5 to $8 a quart for the fruit. Harvest has begun for the few black sweets that survived a series of spring frosts. “I’ve picked a few for the farmer’s markets … but not many,” said Alan Bakker of Bakker’s Acres of East Leland. “They’re just not there.” Frost Bakker picked a few decimated Caveliers this week, an early variety of dark sweets crop, but ,and expects to harvest a some local few Ulsters for the fresh market, but no where near sweets the typical volume of fruit. “We’d usually have sevsurvived eral thousand pounds and

LUTHER G. STANOW Died June 23, 2012

BINGHAM TOWNSHIP – Luther George Stanow, of Bingham Township, passed away Saturday, June 23, 2012 at his home with family by his side. Luther was born on Dec. 18, 1928, the son of George and Ethel (Tillack) Stanow. On Oct. 2, 1949, in Detroit, he married Dorothy L. Zink, who survives. When Luther and his family lived in Detroit, they would often go camping in Northern Michigan, enjoying the outdoors and fishing. Luther was an avid clock collector and enjoyed rebuilding and refurbishing them. He loved gardening, tending to his vegetables and flowers. Luther was a creative man and enjoyed woodworking and painting and would build Easter baskets for the kids. He would often be seen around his subdivision gocarting as well at the local tracks. Luther was active in his church as a Sunday school teacher and was always handing out Tootsie Rolls to his students. He was also involved with the adult Bible studies. The three best words to describe Luther are: caring, sentimental, and nostalgic. He was always willing to help and was generous with his time and will be greatly missed. In addition to his wife of nearly 63 years, Dorothy, Luther is survived by his children David (Karen) Stanow, Diane (Jim) McIntyre, Laurie Pluhar; five grandchildren, Paul Stanow, Dawn (John) Brookes, Lynn Pluhar, Brian and Joshua McIntyre; a greatgrandchild, John Charles Brookes; and a brother, Gilbert Paul Stanow. Visitation will be held on Friday, June 29 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Martinson Funeral Home of Suttons Bay. The funeral service will be on Saturday, June 30 at 11 a.m. with a visitation held one hour prior at Immanuel Lutheran Church of Suttons Bay. Burial will follow at the Lutheran Cemetery. The Rev. Paul Kuhlman will officiate. Memorials may be directed to Immanuel Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 206, Suttons Bay, MI 49682 and/or to Munson Hospice, 1105 Sixth St., Traverse City, MI 49684. Arrangements are with the Martinson Funeral Home of Suttons Bay.

Northport school, arts group near agreement for use of shared center The Northport school district and the Northport Community Arts Center are nearly finished hammering out a new agreement that will govern use and care of the center, which is located in a wing of the school. The Auditorium Use Committee, made up of three Northport school board trustees and three representatives of the arts organization, has been working on the new agreement since February 2011, meeting about once a month; the agreement is expected to be finished this week. The need for a new agreement came about because the school recently ramped up its arts program. The school hadn’t had much of a program in previous years and there became a need for the drama department to use the auditorium more often, said Bonnie Shiner, board secretary. Tensions started when prior to a

Art benefit for Fresh Food group Friday An art opening benefiting the Fresh Food Partnership will be held Friday at Gallery 22 in Bingham Township. Local artist Kaye Krapohl has created a series of paintings focused on local foods. An opening reception and artist greeting will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. The paintings range in size from 2-by-5-inches to 38-by-38 inches. Larger paintings are framed in uniquely-designed frames built by local furniture maker Matt Joppich and stamped with his seal. Kraypohl received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Michigan. She has been the recipient of the Hallmark National Scholastic Gold Medal, National Endowment for the Arts award and numerous other national and regional awards. She has studied with nationally reknown artistis: Don Rice, Lou Marino, Paul Stewart, David Small and Tekashi Takahara.

school production the drama department repainted the auditorium stage, Shiner said, and made them realize the need for a new agreement that would clearly define use of the center. “It was born out of a need to clarify,” said Shiner, who also noted that the two groups are working together very well. The auditorium is part of a new wing built in 2001 that also includes a gymnasium, music and art rooms, a lobby and bathrooms. The voterapproved $6.1 million project was funded by the sale of about $5 million in bonds and another $1 million in donations raised by the NCAC. Bonds will be paid back through a 15-year, 1.38-mill property tax. There is also a $540,000 endowment from the Warm family that was earmarked specifically for upkeep and maintenance of the auditorium and arts center. That endowment is administered by the Leelanau Township Foundation. When it was built it was agreed that both the school and the arts organi-

zation would use the center equally, Wetherbee said. The school would be responsible for the physical condition and custodial care of the space, and the arts organization would manage the business end, such as scheduling entertainment events, Wetherbee said. “We didn’t want to be involved in the running of a box office and getting shows in there,” Wetherbee said. One of the problems the Auditorium Use Committee is up against is that the non-profit organization and the actual physical facility — which is owned by the school district — are two separate entities, but have the same name: the Northport Community Arts Center. When people make donations they may not have a clear idea of what they are donating to. Also, the school district has an insurance policy on the building, but the arts organization, which owns some of the equipment, may need to have its own policy. The committee is using an attorney to make sure the language in the new agreement is legal and proper.

QUILTED artwork by Empire artist Sarah Bearup-Neal will be featured July 6-12 at the Center Gallery in Glen Arbor.

ou r opinion

Declaration signers have stories to tell We gave teachers in Leelanau County a summer assignment, asking them to pick their favorite signers of the Declaration of Independence. They all get A’s, and we’ll ignore any and all claims of grade erosion. But even the teachers interviewed would concede that the qualities and life stories of their subjects gave them a leg up in the assignment. The story by staff writer Eric Carlson appears on pages 3-4 in the Diversions section. Of course, Thomas Jefferson was the most mentioned signer of the Declaration — as is fitting. His pen was responsible for the bulk of its content. Benjamin Franklin, the Renaissance man who dabbled in electricity and — poor soul — newspaper publishing, would probably have been the most interesting to interview, in our biased opinion. Josiah Bartlett of Massachusetts also drew attention, as his fictitious relative played the role of President in the TV series The West Wing. The original Dr. Bartlett, a gifted physician and sacrificing patriot, was the first member of the Continental Congress to cast a vote to secede from England, and the second signer of the Declaration of Independence. He married his first cousin — it was truly a smaller world then — and the couple had 12 children, nine of whom also became physicians. Of all the answers, we most enjoyed the one provided by Suttons Bay teacher Keven Cross. He picked John Adams for something Adams did years before the Declaration was signed. His strong sense of justice led Adams to lead the legal defense of eight British soldiers accused of murder for firing into an unruly mob on March 5, 1770. The incident became known as the Boston Massacre. He succeeded in having six of the soldiers acquitted; two were convicted of manslaughter. It would have been easier — and politically expedient — for Adams to instead call for a mass hanging of the soldiers. Public opinion cried out for their heads. But Adams, who recognized that the soldiers did, indeed, fear for their lives when killing five people, convinced a jury that their penalties should be based on evidence, not emotion. That the soldiers’ fate should be based on the event itself, not the uniforms they wore. The concept of even-handed justice, although elusive, remains a worthy cornerstone for the greatest nation on earth. Thank you, teachers, for the lesson.

Legislative power play The Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund is widely popular, having been given status in the State Constitution not once but twice by voters. We doubt that such support would exist today had the hundreds of millions of dollars in grants provided by the Fund gone through a combative Legislative process rather than a citizens committee charged with prioritizing and, essentially, choosing projects to fund. That process has unnecessarily come into question by present Michigan legislators including Sen. Dawin Booher (R-Evart), who represents Leelanau County. It’s not as though Mr. Booher and other legislators including Sen. Tom Casperson (R-Escanaba) don’t bring a legitimate opinion to the table in their opposition to a portion of recommended projects for funding in 2012. Simply put, they believe the State of Michigan already owns too much land. Mr. Booher hears from elected officials in Kalkaska and Roscommon counties, who complain that well over half of all of their county’s property is in public hands. He doesn’t mind providing funds for projects that will be owned by local governments. But he wants to draw the line there, and helped lead an effort to take out about $4 million allocated to the Department of Natural Resources to buy lands that might “fill in” an existing state parks or forests. The DNR monies were included in a recommendation from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Board, which overseas a pool of money exceeding $500 million generated from the development of oil and gas on state lands. The Legislative changes delayed approval of other projects including purchase of the 104-acre Clay Cliffs property in Leland Township; generally Trust Fund Board recommendations are approved by the Legislature and signed by the governor in April or even March. We ask Mr. Booher to respect the independence given the Trust Fund Board, and recognize that starting a precedence of hand-picking winners and losers from among its recommendations starts a slippery slope that could turn the process into a political free-for-all. Eventually, northern Michigan could very well be the loser of such a system based not on the merits of projects, but on the political clout of backers. If Mr. Booher is serious about exerting legislative control over the Trust Fund, we suggest he sponsor a Constitutional amendment changing the Fund’s priorities or eliminating the Trust Fund Board. And, in fact, perhaps it’s time for such a discussion. Picking a Constitutional fight is no way to begin.

St. Mary/Leland golf team, staff second to none To the Editor: I am writing as a golf spectator who has attended several meets over the last few years, as well as attending this years 2nd round of the State Championship in Lansing. I felt compelled to congratulate the St. Mary/ Leland Boys team and coaches as they have become to be known as a “class act.” It was a pleasure to be an observer watching the coaches; Jim Varley and Assistant Coach Tim Schaub share their love of the game, which trickled down to the players. The team consisted of Paul Bardenhagen, Ian Duvall, JR Duvall, Joe Pendergast, Nick Shaffran and Joel Sneed. The team was very talented and gifted but yet remained mature, humble and grateful towards their parents, coaches and community. Their passion for the game was very evident. These were just a few words used by the players to describe their coaches; “dedicated, wise, passionate, positive, helpful and supportive.” It was such a joy to witness their coaching style. The golfers displayed the true meaning of “team” and it was evident that the coaches and players had a love and respect for each other. As mentioned to me by a parent “They have developed a bond with each other, and I hope they all keep in touch.” The community came together and joined in a parade and reception Sunday night to celebrate the State Championship Title. The words that were spoken and the messages given came from the heart. What a joyous celebration it was. Congratulations St. Mary/Leland Co-op Boys Golf team on upholding the meaning of a “true gentleman’s game. Kathy Boone Norvick Rd., Suttons Bay

Dog Days on hold for this cat woman I’m really not a cat person. That’s why my friends and family were all pretty surprised last week — shocked, actually — when I decided to adopt a kitten from the Saginaw County Animal Care Center. I’m finding cats, though a little weird, are nearly as cute as dogs. And a whole lot easier to take care of. Tigga is already litter trained, he doesn’t have to be walked, and he hasn’t chewed anything up yet. Newspaper reporters and adopted pets have a long shared history, apparently. Several employees at The Bay City Times, where I worked for 10 years, will attest to that. Many of them had pets at home that they fell in love with when the animals were brought to the newspaper’s photo studio for their glamour shots — a requisite for their turn as Pet of the Week. I adopted my dog, Annie, from the Gratiot County animal shelter when I was doing an internship at The Alma Morning Sun. One of my regular duties was to visit the shelter each week to take a photo of an adorable dog or cat for the newspaper’s pet adoption feature. The animal control officers saw me coming a mile away. Every week they would trot out that week’s pick, knowing I would have a hard time resisting. They told me the animal’s sad tale of being found in the woods, being the last of a litter, or being dropped off by an owner that just couldn’t take care of it any more. Though I worked in Alma all summer, I actually held out until nearly the end of August, about one week before the end of my internship and my return to Central Michigan University for my senior year. That’s when they brought out the puppy that would end up being named for the famous orphan. She was 6-weeks-old, a big-eyed, floppy-eared mix of beagle and Jack Russell terrier. When they handed her to me she laid her head on my shoulder and went right to sleep. I had heard that pets generally pick their owners, but I had never experienced it before. What could I do but take her home? She spent the next 13 years getting into the garbage, digging holes in the back yard and leaving the occasional pee spot on the basement floor. I often told people she was a rare mix of intelligence — inherited from her Jack Russell genes — and instinct, from her beagle side, of course. I could, in fact, often see the two breeds at war in her. Should I behave? Or should I follow this amazing smell? The nose

frequently won out, I’m sorry to say. I had to have A column Annie put to sleep by last month. I can’t help but think about Patti what a long, happy Brandt life she had. And how much joy she brought me and my family through the years. If I hadn’t taken her home she would likely have been destroyed, as 60 percent of the dogs and 70 percent of the cats that enter shelters each year are, according to the ASPCA. When you consider that 5 to 7 million dogs and cats enter shelters each year, the number that is destroyed is staggering, to say the least. And I say destroyed, not euthanized, as euthanasia is defined as “painless killing.” Many shelters use carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide gas chambers, which could not be considered painless by any stretch of the imagination. I found that out recently when I watched the HBO’s “One Nation Under Dog,” a documentary that included a filmed account of the process, complete with sound. I had to change the channel. Gas chambers have been outlawed in nine states; Michigan is not one of them. Destroying animals is also hard on shelter employees and volunteers, who work there, after all, because they love animals. They work hard to reunite lost animals with their owners and to find good homes for animals. They are also unflinching advocates of spaying and neutering, procedures that will prevent future generations of lovable animals from having their lives ended prematurely. So much so that most shelters have policies that every adopted animal must be spayed or neutered. Some shelters have new owners pay a percentage of the cost of the procedure to the shelter, an amount that will be refunded to the owner after the animal has been spayed or neutered. Some shelters have the new owner show proof that they have paid for the spaying or neutering before they can even take the animal home. And many veterinarians will give pet owners a discount on the procedure if the animal has been adopted from a shelter. With time and a lot of patience, Tigga may eventually learn to sit, speak and bring me my slippers. Though to be fair, it took Annie 10 years to learn how to speak and she never did master the slippers trick. And as soon as this little kitten is old enough, he’ll be going in and getting snipped, which is the most humane thing I can do for him.

Popular wisdom about Detroiters isn’t working The term “popular wisdom” is often used in politics when you have no concrete proof that what you are saying is true, so scribes often toss that around and its country cousin, “conventional wisdom,” to add false credibility to what they are writing and what you are reading. Take for example the issue of a Caucasian mayor in the City of Detroit. The popular wisdom would be that African-Americans, who have been electing one of their own to the post since 1974, would never support a white person running their town. Turns out the p.w. is dead wrong and there is proof to back it up. With widespread speculation that hospital administrator and former guru to Wayne County executive Ed McNamara, Mike Duggan, might run for mayor, the survey takers at Denno Research and the Lambert Edwards firm set out to sample the state on the attitudes toward such a game changing development. Question: Would you vote for a white mayor in Detroit? The revealing results shows how out-of-step out-state Michigan is with its brothers and sisters in Motown. Turns out 50 percent of Detroit residents would indeed vote for a mayor who was not one of their own. Contrast that with 40 percent of the rest of the state that figures Detroiters would never do that in a million years. Talk about being out of sync. The numbers get more interesting. While one out of two voters in Detroit are OK with that, only 22 percent of the out-state voters believe Detroiters would actually do that. So add it all up and you could conclude that many Detroiters see themselves as more tolerant of a candidate from a different race while outstate citizens don’t view Detroiters as that willing to consider a different choice.

By Tim Skubick

The polling seems to underscore a divided Michigan which Gov. Rick Snyder has often discussed, but not all the Renlentless Positive Action in the world can rearrange that over night. And the recent episode where the Detroit City Council fatally attempted to block state intervention into the huge deficit mess there, did little to foster the turnaround of anti-Detroit attitudes so prevalent north of Eight Mile Road. The governor’s backers believe that he acted in good faith to avoid the imposition of an Emergency Manager and finally hammered out a consent agreement with the city to send in some badly needed financial assistance while leaving the mayor and council intact. For a precious few fleeting moments, it looked like peace was at hand but then that law suit was filed, long after the ink had dried on the agreement, and out-state citizens had another reason to ill-judge the leaders in Detroit. The governor refused to be drawn into the verbal cross-fire although privately he must have been more than a little miffed at the attempts to undo what he and others had so carefully put together with the help of the very council that tried to renege on the deal at the 11th hour. The city lost credibility even though many thought they were doing the right thing. Now the “deal” is back on track, but the deficit has not moved an inch. Could a white mayor do any better? Detroiters seem to be open to the idea, but their counterparts in other parts of the state, don’t believe it. Which means the governor has a long way to go before we are One Michigan.

To the Editor: Re: Sleeping Bear Trail — Other Options There are other options for width and surface of the Heritage Trail. The trail’s original plans called for a multiuse “trail” for walkers, hikers, mountain and road bikers, people who use mobility assistance devices and skiers. Asphalt is not the only surface that meets those user needs. In fact a wide asphalt trail is not preferable for those who feel that asphalt destroys our natural setting. Janet Zeller, the National Accessibility Program Manager for the U.S. Forest Service, comments “it is important not to change the nature of a setting when integrating a trail.” After all, the setting is the reason people choose to visit an area”. Ms. Zeller states that there are other “NPS bike paths that would serve as better models if the NPS is determined to use asphalt.” She cites that the National Seashore on Cape Cod in Massachusetts has a smaller width even though it has hundreds of bicycle riders on it each day during the summer. Another option is to use other guidelines. The Forest Service developed their own guidelines to “maximize accessibility for all while maintaining the natural settings on new or altered pedestrian trails across the 193 million acres of the National Forests across the country” ( Zeller). The Crotched Mountain Foundation in Greenfield, NH also used the Forest Service Trail Accessibility Guidelines to build an accessible, sustainable and beautiful trail from the top of a mountain, down the mountain and around the wetland bog at its base. The surface is firm and stable, but not paved and all the grades comply with the accessibility guidelines. Management at Sleeping Bear Dunes should view the website: www. for insight into trail building. It offers some alternatives for the NPS when building a trail that is available to all while maintaining a beautiful setting. Nancy Janulis P.O. Box 187, Glen Arbor

Demolition of Sugar Loaf Resort is long over due To the Editor: When I look at the Sugar Loaf Resort Hotel, I recall the words of our late President Ronald Reagan referring to the Berlin Wall: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” Leelanau County residents and seasonal owners should rise up with a similar voice. “Leelanau County — tear down that resort hotel.” The demolition of this property is long overdue. We call upon the citizens of Leelanau County to join us in demanding that action be taken NOW. This deteriorating eyesore is a blemish on the beauty of our peninsula and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. Why hasn’t this property been condemned and demolished? Why the delay? The Sugar Loaf townhouses have endured this mess for over 10 years. This embarrassment must end. Again, we beg and plead with the citizens of Leelanau. Speak out — raise your voice with ours. It is in the best interest of our County. Tony Mattar Co-Manager Sugar Loaf Townhouses LLC New King Street, Troy

Postmistress works hard, doesn't leave mail lying around To the Editor: I am writing in reference to Mr. Conder’s letter about the Leland “Postmistress” who happens to be my wife Laura. Although Laura has some great people that come in a few hours a week to help put up the mail, she is running the Leland Post Office alone. She goes in before 8 a.m. and gets home around 6 p.m., as well as Saturday hours. This said she doesn’t need Mr. and Mrs. Conder calling her at home on the weekend, complaining that their mail doesn’t come to them when they think it should. It has been explained to Mr. Conder by both the Leland Post Office and the Northville Post Office how a forward works. If Mr. Conder gets mail at the Leland Post Office it is forwarded that day. If Mr. Conder misses his Leelanau Enterprise he can pay for premium service, and receive his mail sooner. The Leland Post Office is said to be a small office but they handle over 2,000 pieces of mail a day, not including packages, magazines, phone books, catalogs, and that is just incoming mail. I have seen Laura research letters (on her own time) from children marked “Dad” or “Grandma” that would normally be returned to sender because of unknown address, and hand deliver those letters on her way home. I have also seen her go out of her way to help people that only return her effort with rudeness. She also tells me about some very wonderful people she has met at the Post Office. In all, postal workers work very hard for very little thanks. They take their job very seriously, and do not just leave mail “lying around.” Tobin Sprout P.O. Box 3, Leland

Leland Post Office is simply the best To the Editor: Kudos to Laura Sprout and the Leland Post Office. For 10 years we have had our mail forwarded without a problem. In addition, for five generations, we have always been the recipients of smiles, help, useful information, counseling, or an occasional cookie or dog treat when we pick up our mail. Our post office is simply the best. Perhaps we have been so fortunate because we never get invited to parties. Diana Warner N Manitou Trail, Leland

To the Edtior:

What a terrific article on Mary Sutherland. Mary is one of the few ardent feminists I’ve ever known who is genuinely likeable. Mary’s family and my family arrived in Glen Arbor a year apart. Each family had five boys and a girl and all grew up together. Mary’s husband, Dale, was the principal at Glen Lake High School. He developed cancer and died in the mid 70’s. What a tragedy. But all these years later if you want to meet some terrific young people, meet any of Mary’s kids. Glen Arbor housed lots of standout women in the 70’s — Betty Weaver, Connie Binsfeld, Molly Weeks, Kathleen Wiesen — all leave big foot prints. It was a wonderful time to live there. When I read in your article that she had a bumper sticker saying “this is what a radical feminist looks like” I was grinning from ear to ear. That’s Mary … not one phony bone in her body. Jack Gillen Summit Ct., Traverse City

I have been a builder in Leelanau County for 25 years now and, yes, have had ups and downs with the building code office. The only code office that a person has never had an issue with is the one he has never dealt with. There are three reasons a project would get a correction notice. First: The inspector found something you missed. If you are concerned about quality, safety and integrity, you should thank the inspector for spotting it and giving you the opportunity to correct it. Second: The inspector knows some code that you don’t. The Building Code is over 800 pages of single-spaced text, tables and pictures, it is also revised and reissued every three years. I challenge any builder to have spent as many hours studying the code book as the inspectors. Again, you should thank the inspector for educating you on some point of the code you were not aware of. Third: The inspector interprets the code differently than you. You are free to argue with him or request a hearing to argue your point. I have found the office and all its employees to be extremely helpful, courteous and respectful. The inspectors are a wealth of information and a valuable resource to anyone involved in a construction project. The re-inspection fee is $50, not a budget-breaker for most projects. True you may have delays, a common occurrence in any construction project as any builder will tell you. But it is in the best interest of the homeowner to have their project done properly. The purpose of the Building Code is to “protect public health, safety and welfare.” I think most people would agree to put up with a bit of inconvenience to achieve those goals. Randy Gilmore S. Center Hwy., Suttons Bay

To the Editor: You may be surprised to learn we have in our midst one of the best distance runners for his age of 56. Northport’s Steve Maures, in the Bayshore Half-Marathon which includes the steep McKinley Hill in Old Mission, had a winning time of 1 hour, 24 minutes, 35 seconds. Only thirteen, much younger, of over 700 runners, finished before him. The National record is only about two minutes faster at one hour twentytwo minutes, nine seconds. Steve’s time eclipsed the same age winner of the Boston half-marathon by almost five minutes, the Chicago run by over twelve minutes and the St. Pete’s halfmarathon by over 10 minutes. Steve’s average mile was six minutes and 46 seconds. It takes a rather fast walker to do a mile in 15 minutes. If you travel between Northport and Omena on almost any evening you may see this tall slim figure running at a good clip on the shoulder, which he does after working a full day as a carpenter. As a has been at 96, I want you to know of the modest Steve Maures. Grafton “Mac” Thomas S. Shore Drive, Northport

LECDC, but I do object to their proposed method for funding them. The property owners of Leelanau County owe no duty to the LECDC, yet they, and only they, will be forced to underwrite the operations of the LECDC, at least the first $1,280,000 of the $4,000,000 they claim they require. Which county children would actually be served? Is there a published budget for the $4,000,000? Where will the money go? I tried to learn from the Board and Treasurer where property tax revenue can be properly and legally expended, with no answers. Are not property taxes raised to fund valid governmental functions and activities such as schools, roads, police, fire/ EMS services, water treatment, et al? Non-profit organizations? They are embarking down a very slippery slope if they accede to the LECDC’s request, in my opinion, with the “Law of Unintended Consequences” lurking nearby. I wish them well with their day care ideas, but have no desire to fund their organization with higher property taxes. I believe they should seek their funding through voluntary contributions or grants, as in the past. Property tax payers are already tasked with funding the kids from K-12th grade, pre-school seems a bit much. I urge them to abandon this effort and I urge the Board to reject their request to put this on the general ballot. Curt Raftshol N. West Bay Shore Drive, Suttons Bay

New Construction & Remodeling 7949 W. Day Forest Rd., Empire



SEVERAL PEOPLE have complained that the names, shown above and right, on the new granite slabs at the Leelanau County Memorial Plaza are difficult to read.

New names added to veterans Memorial Plaza hard to read One hundred and thirty nine new names of people who served in the U.S. Armed Forces have been inscribed into one of the new granite slabs at the Leelanau County Memorial Plaza, erected last month in time for a Memorial Day service. The problem, many have complained, is that the names can’t be read. “I’ve experienced a lot of complaints, right from the get-go,” commissioner Richard Schmuckal said at a Veterans Memorial Committee held June 19. “You cannot read them, even when you get down on your knees.” Commissioner David Marshall agreed. “They are all but illegible,” he said. Chet Janik, Leelanau County administrator, also checked out the memorial. “I personally went there and viewed the names and I would agree with those people,” Janik said. “They are difficult to read.” Janik said architect Harry G. Wierenga of Fleis & Vanderbrink Engineering Inc., who designed the Memorial Plaza, has been asked to take a look at the new slabs and come back with some possible solutions. “Out of respect for the veterans we would like to address it so that the names can be viewed properly,” Janik said. “How we do that is the question.” Janik said he is hoping to hear about those solutions by next week. The new slabs were made to match the ones already in place at the memo-

rial, which was completed in 2009 at a cost of about $150,000. The only difference is that unlike the original sections of granite, the new slabs are polished, giving them a high-gloss finish. Wierenga said he visited the memorial this past weekend, took photos and is working with Superior Monument of Muskegon — the company that inscribed the names into the granite — to see what can be done to make the names more readable. “We’re looking at a whole host of options,” Wierenga said. One of the problems with the new slabs is that it can be difficult to see under strong sunlight, he said. “Under certain lighting conditions they read differently,” he said. One solution is to tone down the finish using acid. Another is to discretely paint the names in such a way that they can be seen more clearly, but that keeps the monument tasteful looking. Polished stone was used because it weathers better and holds its character longer, Wierenga said. The text also usually reads better on the polished surface, except when the stone has been wet, he said. The original proposal included using black granite because it is much easier to read, but county officials opted to use gray because it would match the slabs in the original section of the memorial. Upgrades to the memorial, which include four new slabs that create room for future names, their concrete foundations and landscaping, cost about $40,000. Of that amount, engineering costs were bid by Fleis & Vanderbrink Engineering Inc. at $5,000. Commissioners at last week’s


committee meeting said the bills have come in at about $3,000 over budget. Wierenga said there may be some discrepancy and that he is checking into the costs and has every intention of coming in at his company’s bid. The county will also not have to pay for the extra costs of getting the names readable, he said. “The intent is to get something done that is more than acceptable with no additional costs,” Wierenga said. “We’re working diligently to make it the best it can be.” The Historical Wall of Honor, the centerpiece of the Memorial Plaza, is reserved for the names of Leelanau County citizens who were killed in action. But other areas are for names of people from anywhere who served. Any county resident can honor a family member or friend, even if that person never lived in Leelanau County, by having their name inscribed on a Wall of Honor. A name costs $25. Bricks for the walkway that are inscribed with the name of a person that has served can also be purchased for $125.

expenses shows why. Revenue estimates that came in better than expected helped to keep the county in the black. The 2011 General Fund budget anticipated expenditures of $10,505,654 after deducting an anticipated influx of $336,000 from its contingency fund, which was not needed. After deducting the MERS contribution, the county General Fund paid out $10,741,703. A one-time payment of more than $105,000 to a county Sheriff’s deputy sergeant who was awarded backpay and medical expenses in an arbritrator’s decision helped put the Sheriff’s Office 2011 expenditures at $1,950,791. Some $1,734,691 was budgeted, according to numbers provided by the county clerk’s office. Also, some $103,000 was pulled from the General Fund to restock a pool of money used to provide health care to county employees. Higher revenues more than made up the differences, as the county had budgeted to receive $10,468,852 after deducting an expected fund balance transfer. Instead, the county took in $10,844,113 after subtracting the property tax revolving fund contribution of $590,000. Several factors were in play, including an unanticipated rebate in worker’s compensation from past years and property tax revenues of $8,455,298 — about $122,000 more than budgeted. Also, real estate transfer tax revenues provided $154,707; $60,000 was budgeted. Said Peacock of the decline in the General Fund fund balance, “These numbers do not make the auditor nervous. If we had a continued history of burning fund balances, I would be. But we do not.”

The other I’d just as soon go away.” Added Roush: “Our fund balances are good, and no funds were in the red. We just have some internal procedures that we need to work on.” The County Board authorized Roush to hire a financial expert to help prepare for the audit. Padgett Business Services of Traverse City was paid $938 for its

work, according to figures provided by the county Clerk’s office. The cost of the audit did go down in the second year of a two-year contract with Rehman Robson, as the firm did not need to spend as many hours rectifying county books. The audit price for 2011 was $56,436; the 2012 audit cost was $43,525.

The financial shape of Leelanau County looks very good today. It may not look as good in a couple years. That was the overall view provided by auditor Stephen Peacock, a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), who explained that long-term debt for the county’s retirement system will be shown in audits starting in 2014. “The way this pension stuff is going to look like in two years is very different,” said Peacock. Other governments across the nation will also be affected, as the requirements are part of changes mandated by the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB). In comparison, Leelanau County’s books may look enviable, as the county paid a onetime sum of $1,180,000 in 2011 to the Michigan Employee Retirement System (MERS) to draw down unfunded liabilities. Through 2010, the county MERS account showed $18.8 million in liabilities offset by just $13.9 million in assets. Said county commissioner James Schaub at a meeting earlier this month, “If commissioners would have known about that 10 years ago when (the liability) was only $2 million, maybe they would have switched to a defined contribution.” The audit of 2011 books took into account the MERS contribution, of which one-half came from a revolving property tax fund and the other half from the county’s General Fund fund balance. Each fund provided $590,000. Despite the large withdraw, the General Fund fund balance remained robust at $6,985,037. It entered the 2011 fiscal and calendar year at $7,472,627. A review of the 2011 county budget compared with actual revenues and

The annual audit of Leelanau County found its books in a better condition than a year ago — but not stellar. Auditor Stephen Peacock gave the county’s 2011 books a passing grade. “Does this constitute an A minus audit? No. Does this constitute a B minus audit? Possibly,” Peacock said earlier this month when providing his finding to the Leelanau County Board of Commissioners. Peacock is a Certified Public Accountant and a principal in the Traverse City financial firm of Rehman Robson. “It’s not a D, which would be a poor audit,” Peacock continued. “The most important element to cure these findings is communication with everybody in this building ... we’re all on the same team here. I understand legally we all have silos, but we all have to work as a team.” In theory, the county treasurer is responsible for keeping track of revenue received by the county, while the county clerk handles accounts payable. It’s a checks and balance system that follows separate streams of monies that should equal each other. The audit found no indications of fraud, and in general found the state of county finances in very good shape compared to other governments. However, several changes were again suggested in how the county records and accounts for its funds, and the county books were tagged with two “material weakness” warnings — one that was unavoidable, and one that the county treasurer is working to avoid in the future. In all, the auditor flagged four “deficiencies” in county books — down from seven stated in the audit of 2010 county finances conducted by Rehman Robson. County treasurer Chelly Roush took note of the improvements in a letter to the County Board addressing the audit. “I am very proud of the hard work my staff has demonstrated by putting into action the plan that was outlined to the Board last year. As noted in the audit, the plan was effective,” she wrote. She also said that “internal control over financial reporting” — material weakness No. 2 — is being addressed. The weakness required the county ledger to be adjusted in several categories, including the reporting of property tax revenues. Said Peacock, “The good news is that we found areas that were corrected last year ... which showed us that there is effort being made to make this go away.” Material weakness No. 1 would be expensive to correct, as the county would have to keep a CPA on staff. A “significant deficiency,” which is not as severe as a material weakness, was found in the accounting of the county’s affordable housing project because “the county lacks the internal controls for properly tracking and recording the existing outstanding loans.” Also, a second significant deficiency was issued after “several manual journal entries” were found to lack supporting documentation, proper review or were posted in improper amounts. “Most times when this happens, it is some type of hurried journal entry,” Peacock said. County clerk Michelle Crocker was unhappy with deficiencies in the audit. “I’m very bummed we got a B minus. We should be getting an A,” she said. “One material finding we had is a given because we don’t have a CPA on staff.

Leland hires consultant for fire department at $100 per hour The Leland Township Board on Friday approved a recommendation from the Leland Township Fire Board to hire a consultant to advise the township Fire & Rescue Department. Under a six-month consulting contract Richard Royston, chief of the Delhi Charter Township Fire Department located south of Lansing, will be paid $100 per hour for up to 15 hours per month, plus 55 cents per mile, to act as an advisor to the Leland department. Royston will act as an advisor to Acting Chief Captain Geoff Niessink, who was recently appointed head of the department in the wake of the resignation of former captain Michael Fandel. Niessink will remain in the position until

a new chief is hired. Royston worked for the Delhi Township department when it transitioned from an all-volunteer department to one that is paid. In addition, he is experienced with grant writing and feels education is paramount to a department, according to Fire Board members. The Leland department is in the process of hiring a new leader. At its last meeting the township board approved a motion to let Niessink determine the status of Fandel, who has told board members that he resigned as fire chief, but did not resign from the fire department. In the meantime Fandel has not gone on any calls, nor has he been paid any money, according to clerk Jane Keen. awing

Park Service looks at extending South Manitou Island dock

tors walk to the lighthouse, a U.S. LifeSaving Service, a ranger station and several historically preserved 19th century farm buildings. Several trails begin from the dock landing and allow visitors a scenic hike to dunes overlooking the island’s western shore, a natural inland lake, Florence Lake, three campgrounds, and several other natural features. Under the “no action� alternative, the proposed dock extension would not be constructed and the existing dock facility would continue to operate. There would be a continued need for ongoing dredging to support ferry operations. Dredging would be conducted as needed, moving sediment from the dock area to a nearby place along the shoreline. Dredging costs about $35,000 to remove about 3,000 cubic yards of sand, and up to $200,000 for bigger dredgings that are required in some years, Jameson said. Under the preferred alternative, the existing dock would be extended farther into Lake Michigan. The extension would allow boat access in deeper waters and would minimize or eliminate the need for future maintenance dredging. The structure would be built of wood and steel connectors, with

However, ďŹ reworks remain prohibited in all national parks, and there is no exception for parks in states where ďŹ reworks are legal, Schultz said.

A new dock would cost about $200,000 and would take about three to four weeks to build. Work is slated to begin in September. “This allows us to continue to provide access to the park,â€? Jameson said. People can make comments on the assessment until the public comment period closes July 16.

Home sales in county continue to sizzle It’s been a busy 2012 in real estate sales, according to statistics provided by the Traverse Area Association of Realtors and a veteran in the business. Cory Beuerle of Century 21 Northland Real Estate said the main reason for the surge is that home prices stabilized at the start of the year, which for a typical home buyer in Leelanau County was enough incentive to return to the market. “We did ďŹ nally hit bottom at the end of 2011, and we did have to hit bottom to regain conďŹ dence,â€? said Beuerle. “I think we’re in a recovery, and we’re where we want to be. Eventually, the prices will go up.â€? Beuerle said most perspective buyers of Leelanau County homes have a stable income, and have retired or are close to it. They needed to know that the downturn in housing prices had ended before continuing with housing plans that may have been under consideration for years. The Fourth of July is a busy time for

Realtors; Beuerle has a full schedule heading into the holiday. “I’m busy every day. People are coming up, and a lot of inventory is coming on. People are jumping in to sell.� In general, she continued, properties near Traverse City and within or near Leelanau’s villages are drawing more attention than rural areas. “And waterfront is selling very well because the prices are at a point that it’s a very safe investment. I’m not sure anything holds its value as much as waterfront,� she said. Through May, some 120 homes have been sold in Leelanau County by Realtors associated with TAAR — more homes than at least the last six years, and maybe longer. The total value of sales topped $32.8 million, the highest level since 2006. Also, the median price has increased to $211,587, its highest level in four years.

The National Park Service is considering extending its dock on South Manitou Island to reduce maintenance costs. A revised South Manitou Island Boat Dock Extension Environmental Assessment has been released and is available for public review and comment. First released in 2011, the Environmental Assessment describes and analyzes alternative approaches for providing boat dock access to South Manitou Island. While the new document does not analyze new impact topics or additional alternatives in depth, it does clarify some information found in the original document and describes alternatives considered but dismissed early in the planning process. Lee Jameson, facility manager for the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, said the ďŹ rst assessment received little response, but the new one provides more information. The National Park Service must provide for public comment before plans can be carried out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Lakeshore and they have an interest and a stake in what happens there,â&#x20AC;? Jameson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just letting them know what our plans are.â&#x20AC;? The South Manitou Island boat dock lies in shallow water and requires annual dredging to remove sediment. Eventually, the buildup of sediment forms a sandbar beneath the dock that extends out into open water and blocks access. Located on the southeast shore of South Manitou Island bay, the dock is the only reliable access point to the island for public visitors and National Park Service staff. From the dock, visi-

They could shoot and score, sometimes from anywhere on the field. They could also defend like no other. They are the 11-member Leelanau Enterprise girls soccer Dream Team. The elite team, which was nominated by coaches and chosen by Enterprise sports staff with help from the Grand Traverse Area Soccer Officials Association, averaged 10 goals and 5 assists per player. Glen Lake, which had a phenomenal 16-2-2 season that included the Division 4 district championship, have five players selected including keeper Sophie Ewing. The goalie, with help from her defense including Dream Teamers Hannah Wichern and Kira Surber, allowed a state record three regular season goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sophie has a knack for goalkeeping and put in a lot of work to become confident in the box,â&#x20AC;? said Meg Murphy, Glen Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head girls soccer coach the past four season. Joining the three Lakers on the elite team were teammates Logan Popp and Casey McDonough. Four of the Lakers are seniors. Surber is a junior. Popp, a forward, led the team with 15 goals and tied McDonough for the top spot in assists with eight. Other Leelanau County girls chosen to the Dream Team are Suttons Bay seniors Jordan Smith (forward) and Charlotte Seeley and Monni Raphael (midfielders) and Lelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christina Rennie, Lydia Gulow and Whitney Schaub. Rennie is a senior, Gulow is a sophomore and Schaub is a freshman. Gulow was second among county girls with 14 goals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great for all these girls who played so well to get recognition for their efforts,â&#x20AC;? Murphy said of the Enterprise honoring the girls who are not in a league and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compete for individual accolades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes girls are overlooked in certain games, but they may have made a large contribution to their team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to see the unsung hero get the gratitude they deserve.â&#x20AC;? Glen Lake assistant coach Andy Smith said he would enjoy coaching this Dream Team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coaching a dream team like the one put together for Leelanau County would be interesting,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Besides winning the districts and regionals and the school’s first ever state championship, the Eagles also won three invitationals and finished runners-up in two others. “It is starting to settle in and the golf team will have a well-deserved memory for life, from all their efforts and dedication on achieving their goals this season,” Schaub said.

St. Mary and Leland schools organized a parade of champions Sunday in honor of the state’s best team in Division 4. The St. Mary co-op team of six — Nick Shaffran, Joe Pendergast, Paul Bardenhagen, Joel Sneed, J.R. Duvall and Ian Duvall — along with head coach Jim Varley and assistant coach Tim Schaub were paraded from the Leland Country Club to St. Mary High School. Along the six-mile route via M-22 and M-204, the honored guests were surprised to see so many supporters. After the parade a ceremony was held inside the St. Mary gymnasium/cafeteria. About 100 supporters attended the cermony. “I thought it was really great,” said Varley, who has been coach of the co-op team since it was formed in 2006. “While riding over, all of us couldn’t believe all these people were out there watching, especially at cocktail hour in Leland.” St. Mary won the Michigan High School Athletic Association state golf title during a two-day tournament that concluded on June 16. The Eagles came back from a two-stroke deficit on Day 1 to claim the trophy by five strokes over runner-up Kalamazoo Hackett. The Eagles were led by All-Staters Sneed (fourth) and Bardenhagen (seventh). Pendergast, one of two seniors to play all four years, spoke at the ceremony on behalf of the players thanking all the team’s supporters. “Joe did a nice job ... the whole thing was very special,” Varley said. “It was really cool, especially riding in convertibles,” said Sneed, who was one of the reasons the ceremony was delayed. He was in Kokomo, Ind. doing mission work last week. “Winning the state title has kind of sunk in now.” Rev. Michael Janowski, St. Mary’s pastor, gave a prayer and his blessing and Leland Superintendent Jason Stowe also spoke. Bill Hendry, St. Mary’s first-year athletic director who got help from school staff at St. Mary and Leland in organizing the event, appreciated the turnout. “The communities of both our schools came out in full force to support and congratulate the team,” Hendry said. “There were many pockets of cheering supporters.” Hendry said the golf team was more than just a talented group. Half of the St. Mary team earned All-State All-Academic honors for maintaining a 3.5 grade point average or better. “Great golfers, great students and great kids who came together to form one team and achieved their ultimate goal,” Hendry added. Varley and Schaub spoke of the history and the quality of this team and handed out several plaques. When it came to awarding the plaque

“Obviously the talent is there, so it would be fun to run advanced practices and incorporate new tactics. “Each of the girls on the list put great effort into every game and that kind of intensity generates better players all around.” Murphy, who fielded the second-best team in the school’s history, said her five Dream Teamers played a major role in the team’s success. “The talent made it easy because we did not have to focus on the basics,” she said. “We were able to challenge the girls, which helped keep practices enjoyable. “As for the game plans, we knew that if we had to make any changes, these girls would adapt and overcome.” Murphy also noted five standouts pushed others to improve. “With any group consisting of higher caliber players, it brings the entire team up to a better level of play,” she said. “Our practices were tough because every girl wanted to better their skill set and strive to improve. “Our games showed that as a team, we were dangerous in all areas. If a team tried to shut down Casey, one of our other players would step up.” McDonough is the lone Laker planning to play collegiate soccer next season. She has a scholarship to play at Aquinas.

Rachel Reid of Maple City and Rochester was recently honored for her achievements as an NCAA equestrian athlete. Reid, a member of the Southern Methodist University equestrian team, picked up honors for her perfect season record of 3-0 in “on the flat equitation.” She also earned the nod for Most Improved Player on the SMU team after earning a spot on the flat team midway through the season. Reid was undefeated during the regular season and capped the year by defeating topranked against top-ranked Georgia in the NCAA National Championships. “With only eight openings on the roster, I was so honored to be able to represent SMU at the nationals,” Reid said. “The coaches explained that the riders were chosen based on statistics, effort and attitude. Knowing that they believe I uphold these traits means a lot to me.” A 2011 graduate of Glen Lake, Reid is the daughter of Alexis and Jim Reid of Maple City and Rochester.

the place. “But if I didn’t win the first touch, I always tried to get it back off their mistake.” Glen Lake’s Logan Popp, a senior forward, was named to the second team. She led the Lakers with 15 goals and had eight assists. “Logan played a hybrid position this year, which brought some of her numbers down, but at the same time gave her a larger role in our offense,” Smith said. “She was a constant threat all year and gave defenders a hard time.” Keeper Sophie Ewing and defender Hannah Wichern, both seniors, and junior defender Kira Surber received honorable mention recognition. All three combined to yield just five goals all season. “Sophie, Hannah and Kira were rock solid all year,” Smith said. “Our defense was overshadowed by how well our offense did. “But we knew that we could push forward because we had such a strong presence defensively.”

Casey McDonough had a knack for getting to the ball first. And when the Glen Lake senior didn’t win the first touch, she usually recovered quick enough to get the ball back. The relentless pursuits of the 5-foot2 attacking midfielder earned her Division 4 All-State first-team honors from the Michigan High School Soccer Coaches Association. McDonough was the lone Leelanau County player to make the first team. “Watching Casey on the field, you knew she was a difference maker,” said Andy Smith, Glen Lake’s assistant soccer coach. “She worked hard everyday in practice and in games. “She deserves first team All-State recognition.” McDonough, who scored nine goals and had eight assists for the 16-2-2 district champions, made the most of her senior year after being derailed by injury in her junior season. “Teams that played us once, and then came back for a second match would put special marks on Casey to try to slow her down,” Smith said. “Everyone at Glen Lake is proud of what Casey accomplished this year.” McDonough, who has a scholarship to play at Aquinas College this fall, was a third-teamer last year despite an injury. “I was hoping to do better and I definitely worked harder,” McDonough said. “This season was a lot better.” Despite her small stature, McDonough wasn’t one to shy away from bigger opponents. She was often challenging each of them for the ball. “It took a lot of training to get a good first touch,” McDonough said. “You don’t want the ball going all over

Four of the five seniors who were part of 1962 Suttons Bay basketball team that reached the Class D state semifinals were among those attending the 50-year reunion earlier this month. The event, which drew 13 classmates with their spouses and senior class sponsor, Bill Gregory, was held June 9 at the Leelanau Sands Casino in Peshawbestown. Senior class members of that historic team attending the reunion were John Kohler, Dennis Kubesh, Phil Bahle, and Ron Collins, along with coach Gregory. The Norsemen posted a 12-0 season Cherryland Conference record, the first team in the conference to go undefeated. The Norse scored 1,387 points in 19 games, a 73 points per game average. Fellow classmate Patrick Guinan reminded those present at the reunion that Suttons Bay High School was where dreams were made in those very special young years. Quoting Langston Hughes, Guinan combined dreams and memories by saying “When dreams die, life is like a broken winged bird that cannot fly.”

Suttons Bay aims for kayak record Suttons Bay will be filled Sept.1 with what organizers hope will be a worldrecord 2,000 kayaks and canoes in an event benefitting Suttons Bay Public Schools. “A friend of mine had participated in a flotilla in New York last September and she showed me pictures,” Kate Thornhill said. “All I could think was ‘Our water is so much more beautiful.’” Thornhill began thinking that Suttons Bay would be a great venue for a similar event. She spoke with village resident Jan Ostrowski, who coordinates volunteers for the Suttons Bay visitor center. “Jan has always thought a paddling event would be good for the village,” Thornhill said. Thornhill approached Superintendent Mike Murray before classes were dismissed and got his blessing. “He asked, ‘How many do we need for a new record?’ I told him 2,000 and he said, ‘We can do that.’” The current world record, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, belong to a community in upstate New York which organized a flotilla of 1,902 boats. The Suttons Bay Flotilla hopes to

break this record with at least 2,000. Thornhill estimates it will take 200 volunteers, many coming from the school community, to pull off the project. “About half the Class of 2013 has signed on to make this part of their senior project and a number of middle school kids and teachers are also volunteering,” Thornhill said. A safety committee has been established along with a logistics group to ensure a professionally-run event, she said. “There’s a lot that goes into it,” she said. The event is set for Saturday, Sept. 1 in Suttons Bay, with the official boat count taking place at 1 p.m. Boats can be dropped off at one of three locations from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., allowing participants to wander through the Farmer’s Market and food vendors at the Suttons Bay marina. Packet pick-up is scheduled for Aug. 31 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Sept. 1, beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Suttons Bay Public Schools. Online registration is available until Aug. 30 and day-of-registration until 11 a.m. Only those registered can participate

Golfing for funds THE ST. MARY School’s Golf-A-Thon raised $35,850 for the school. The 18th annual event was held at Bay Meadows Golf Course where the golfers put in 100 holes during the day for the school’s operating budget. With 384 pledges, a total of $35,850 has been pledged. Above, Michael Bean proudly points out that he’s No. 1 when it comes to closest to the pin. He won $80 for his good shot. Michael Linguar, a 2004 St. Mary alum, also claimed $80 for being closest to a pin. Both golfers donated their winnings back to the school.

spring, St. Mary golf may be history. But what a great history. Tim and Lucy Schaub deserve a lot of credit for starting the program and head coach Jim Varley deserves some accolades for helping teach the kids the finer points. The Eagles beat out 14 other teams for the top state honor. The championship, however, was not unexpected. The boys were on a mission since winning last year’s regional and falling a little short at the finals, finishing 10th. This spring the St. Mary won just about everything in sight, from three invitationals and several different matches, to the district and regional trophies. I had the privilege of following the players on the course for a couple matches at the Leland Country Club, the team’s home course. The team had so much talent and experience. If one player had a tough round, others would pick up the slack. Even the top spot on the team was won by three different individuals during the season. No wonder oppo-

nents couldn’t figure out a way to beat the Eagles. Not even the Suttons Bay juniorladen squad. The Norse had a phenomenal season by most accounts. Yet in districts and regionals, they had to play second fiddle to the Eagles. The Norse finished seventh in the state and deserve some accolades, too. Winning in a spring sports championship in my book, at least, is the hardest one to achieve. It’s not easy staying focused. It’s the only sports season interrupted by proms and graduations. And, of course, the celebrations that go with it. And some kids forget to hit the books in the final days of their senior years. I know some over the years that had to sit out their final games because of being academically ineligible. But not this St. Mary group. While none of them were valedictorians or salutatorians, half of them were academic All-State. They were focused, talented and now you can just call them champs.

Broasted Chicken To-Go


From where I come from, cooperatives had mostly to do with farming in the Thumb and not much ado about high school sports. Then one day Owendale-Gagetown let Caseville be a part of their football Fridays since Caseville no longer could afford to fund their own gridiron team. That was the extent of A column prep sports by co-ops in Mike my neighSpencer borhood for a long time. Then the Michigan High School Athletic Association started adding new sports like hockey and lacrosse so a few more co-ops cropped up. Still there weren’t many in the 10 counties that I and the rest of the sports department at The Bay City Times covered. So it was somewhat of a ‘culture shock’ to see so many co-ops in Leelanau County after my arrival last June. I still haven’t figured which kids play at which ones. But I will have no trouble keeping straight the St. Mary’s golf team. It’s the best co-op in the state in Division 4 golf. The Eagles — two players from St. Mary and four from Leland Public School — proved it on June 16, winning the MHSAA state championship and capping a remarkable season that will not soon be forgotten. It was the first St. Mary state championship and sadly, will most likely be the only one in golf. The program is folding, mostly because there are no returnees from the St. Mary school. St. Mary seniors Nick Shaffran and Joe Pendergast graduated days before they earned the distinction of being the best in the school’s history. Leland seniors Paul Bardenhagen and J.R. Duvall also are moving on. All that remains from the championship squad are freshman Joel Sneed and junior Ian Duvall. It’s not even enough to post a team score (four are required). While Leland appears to be making an effort to have its own squad next

Making ice cream one scoop at a time

Find the

By Corey L. Frost Enterprise intern


Editor’s note: This is one in a summer series of hands-on activities exploring Leelanau County.

H A P P Y CUSTOMERS Calli Hathaway, from left, Nadia Ihme and Oscar and Nora Ciolek enjoy some of their favorite desserts Monday evening at the Blue Moon Ice Cream Shop in Cedar.

from time to time. The variety comes from several recognizable, Michigan companies such as Ashby’s, Country Dairy and Homemade Premium. “It’s just delicious ice cream,” said Andrew Mustard, a soon to be 9th grader from Maple City who had taken his place in line. As customers began to line up and the baseball jerseys began to appear, it became evident the shop was about to get busy. I tried my hand with a couple of small soft serve cones. I cringed at the slight bulge on my first cone, but there wasn’t any time to spare. “That’s alright,” Pleva said, “put it out.” Bowls were a little easier. I even had the opportunity to craft a dipped cone, soft serve with a chocolate or cherry coating — not to be confused with hand dipped, or scooped ice cream. As the line grew longer, the faster and experienced Pleva and Rennie took over. Customers were receiving orders just moments after placing them, as one server would listen intently as the other took the order through the small window. Crimmins has timed it before, and the small staff of two or three can get through crowds that reach the corner in under 15 minutes. As the crowd dwindled, I took my final order — two Oreo flurries. Under

the supervision of Crimmins, I started with generous portions of vanilla soft serve and added the crumbled cookies on top. Next, I took the two cups to the blender and held on tight while moving the cup up and down to thoroughly mix the ingredients. The trick now was to pull the cup from the spinning rod at the same time I shut the machine off. I moved it down and away, flipping the switch in unison. Chucks of cookie swirled ice cream hit the sneeze guard and landed on my shirt and arm. “It happens, that’s all part of it,” Crimmins said, laughing. My product went out the window to the grateful customers. The success of Blue Moon has Crimmins hoping to provide the same kind of service in Leland, his town of residence. He opened Hullabaloo on Tuesday, kiddie corner from the Leland post office. “I just want to do something to duplicate what we’re doing here in Cedar,” Crimmins said. “I’d really like to serve the community I live in.” That’s what it’s all about for Crimmins. His stress on quality is due in part to seeing how important a successful ice cream shop can be to a community. People of all ages come together nearly every night to socialize and enjoy little more than a good laugh and a small twist, turtle sundae

or cookie dough flurry. “It’s a social thing — a community hub,” Crimmins smiled. “Hearing all the different families and neighbors talking, laughing and interacting together is really an amazing thing.”

Pieces of the small, Oreo flurry flew off the mixer and landed on my arm inside the Blue Moon Ice Cream Shop in Cedar. “You really have to manhandle it,” said owner Bret Crimmins. The reality of the situation became apparent quickly, serving ice cream isn’t all that easy. My evening began about 7:30, allowing just enough time for a crash course in the ice cream business before the baseball games taking place down the road ended. For those who haven’t visited the small shop in the heart of Cedar, the end of these games marks the start of some of the busiest moments. I joined two members of the shop’s staff, Lauren Pleva and Christina Rennie, who were entering their seventh and third seasons respectively. They gave me a short tour around the inside, explaining the functions of each machine. The two even offered me a few important tips for a new employee, most of which surprisingly didn’t have much to do with ice cream. “Remember to say ‘Please and thank you,’” Pleva said. “Repeat the order back to the customer when using the register,” Rennie added. “And if you can, try to pick up on the short-hand we use,” Pleva finished. They assured me that creating menu items simply had to be picked up through experience, and providing quick, friendly service while being accurate with orders was the key to success. It was ice cream, after all, and a slightly lopsided cone wasn’t going to ruin anything. There was little to argue about. Their quality of service has customers from throughout the county going out of their way to stop at the Cedar staple — that and generous portions of ice cream. “There’s ice cream, and then there’s the premium and ultra-premium grades that we use,” Crimmins said. “The difference is in the butterfat percentage and quality items that are used. “Once people try our products, they really start to get it.” Blue Moon offers at least 18 flavors of hand dipped ice cream at a time, though Crimmins admits he’ll add one

Judge in cop case orders sides to explain progress toward settlement Attorneys on both sides of a federal lawsuit filed in March 2009 by sheriff’s deputies against Sheriff Michael Oltersdorf and Leelanau County have been ordered to let a judge know what they’ve done since March of this year to end the long-running dispute. U.S. District Court Judge Janet Neff issued an order June 21 giving attorneys 28 days to file a joint pleading “concerning the parties’ attempt to resolve the case” before a trial is slated to begin in October. The case has been delayed numerous times since 2009, and several attempts have been made to achieve a settlement — but with no success. Deputies allege that the sheriff, undersheriff and Leelanau County vio-

lated deputies’ civil rights by recording and listening to “private” phone conversations made on government phone lines in the county Law Enforcement Center during duty hours in 2008, and for retaliating against deputies for their police union activities. Last week, the Leelanau County Board of Commissioners met in a special closed session for more than an hour to discuss the case with its attorney, as allowed under the state Open Meetings Act. Following the June 19 closed session, the board took no formal action related to the case. Four deputies who filed suit against the sheriff remain on the county payroll although one, Sgt. Michael Lamb, is on disability due to psychological stress he claims prevents him from working in the department. Three other plaintiffs in the suit remain on

the job in the Leelanau County Sheriff’s Department: Deputy Duane Wright, Sgt. James Kiessel and Sgt. Mike Bankey who was promoted to his present rank after the suit was filed. A “third amended case management order” issued by Judge Neff in March indicates a pre-trial conference is slated to occur October 12, and an estimated 12-day jury trial is to begin October 23 in Grand Rapids. The case was scheduled to go to trial in March. However, Neff cancelled the trial while determining whether attorney Christopher Cook should be removed, as had been requested by the deputies’ attorneys. The judge did not remove Cook, who is representing the county. He’s an attorney for Cummings, McClorey, Davis and Acho.

Red, white and blue Continued from Page 1 Glen Arbor Firefighter Association’s annual pancake breakfast which will bring generations together Sunday to start the day right. The all-you-caneat meal includes pancakes, sausage, applesauce and the firefighter’s special tart cherry sauce. But there is more. Much more. For instance, Tuesday at 7 p.m. the Northport Community Band will kick off the Glen Arbor Art Association’s Manitou Music Festival with patriotic music in a free concert outside the Glen Arbor Athletic Club on Western Avenue. And more patriotic music is on tap at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Village Green in Leland as Immanuel Lutheran Church will host its annual Patriotic Song and Hymn Fest. An intergenerational activity, old and young alike grab their lawn chairs and blankets and gather to sing patriotic songs, hymns, American folk songs, hear patriotic recitations and share prayers for the nation. Refreshments will be served. After singing, there is the first of three fireworks displays scheduled over the holiday, starting at Hancock Field in Leland. Boaters on North Lake Leelanau get the best views — and more than a few oohs and ahhs. Fireworks are also scheduled Wednesday over Northport Bay and over West Grand Traverse Bay. The celebration in Northport will begin at 7 p.m. with music by the Village Voices and Northport Community Band. K. Jones and the Benzie Playboys will follow the local groups immediately preceding the fireworks show. Wednesday at 10 a.m., the Glen Lake Women’s Club will host its 36th annual flag-raising ceremony at Old Settler’s Park. Big Glen Lake serves as the backdrop for the All-American event which could be the setting of a Norman Rockwell painting. Summer

residents and locals alike gather at the picnic grounds for the ceremony which will include patriotic music, a speaker and the raising of the colors by Cub Scout Pack No.111. Peter VanNort, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, will be the featured speaker. Another twist is planned for the Glen Arbor “anything goes” parade — it will turn green. The Leelanau Independent Women of democratic Action (LIWdA) and the Glen Arbor Chamber of Commerce have hired Andy Gale, of Bay Area Recycling for Charities, to bring up the rear of the parade and collect six recycling bins that will be located along the parade route. “Andy can literally recycle everything, but paint,” said Laurell Jeris, chairman of LIWdA local action group. “The bins will be placed in different locations and it should be obvious for people to put stuff in.” Can’t make it to the Glen Arbor celebration? A second holiday procession begins at 3 p.m. in Leland. “Snap shots of Leelanau” will be the theme of the parade which begins at Christmas Tree Corner and travels north on Main Street (M-22) over the bridge and beyond the Village Green. For those who prefer to be on the water over the holiday and subsequent weekend, there are two boat parades — one on Glen Lake and the other on Lake Leelanau. The 31st annual Cedar Polka Fest will begin Thursday, July 5, with a flag raising ceremony at 5 p.m. and continue throughout the following weekend. But we reiterate — or will, in the Diversions section of this week’s Enterprise. Suffice it to say that Leelanau County will be busy, fun and draped in red, white and blue for the next week or so. And then summer continues.

State or federal candidate Continued from Page 1 Honor State Bank on June 9, 1917, with W.D. Griffith. “It was one of the few banks that stayed open during the Depression,” he continued, adding that his wife Sonya’s family also hails from Benzie County. In other developments, Bailey has changed campaign managers and learned that his candidacy is not being supported by former State Representative Dan Scripps, who is now working in Washington as an attorney helping energy companies maneuver through federal regulations. Instead, Scripps, who served a two year term starting in 2008 before being unseated by present state House Rep. Ray Franz (R-Onekama), has come out in support of former Manistee County Board of Commissioner chair Allan O’Shea. Bailey and O’Shea are vying for the Democratic nomination in the Primary Election set for Aug. 7. The winner will take on Franz in the General Election on Nov. 6. “It’s kind of interesting because (Scripps) mentioned no word at the Leelanau County Democratic dinner, and spoke very highly of myself and Mr. O’Shea,” Bailey said. “Everybody is entitled to their own opinion.” Actually, it was at that dinner that O’Shea asked for and gained the endorsement, Scripps said. He has a long relationship with O’Shea. “I’ve known Allan since I first ran in 2006 ... he was an early supporter of mine, and spoke to a number of people on my behalf in Manistee County,” Scripps said. He added that O’Shea has “consistently put bringing people together above politics” — which Scripps said is a “sharp contrast” to the actions of Franz. While Scripps did not know if he would have time to come back to Northport, where his parents live, to campaign on behalf of O’Shea, he was open to recording a radio advertisement or providing a statement for

a newspaper ad on O’Shea’s behalf. “I might be a little rusty, but I’ll do anything to help him,” said Scripps. Bailey said he has been busy attending events and raising money in June under the direction of his new campaign advisor, Dave Seman of Chicago. Seman’s family resides in Antrim County, and Bailey expects him to be working in the 104th District nearly full time in July. Rick Coates of Traverse City had served as campaign manager for Bailey, who entered politics with a run at Michigan’s 1st District in the U.S. House of Representatives. In April, Bailey withdrew from the federal race at the same time he announced his intention to run for the State House. Bailey had raised $150,000 in campaign donations for the federal seat. He has been personally calling backers to seek permission to transfer donations to his House campaign. Most have agreed, Bailey said. However, he is not closing his federal campaign account, as by law donations made by Tribal nations can’t be used in a race for a state seat. Those funds, Bailey said, will remain in his Congressional account, and could be used should he seek to run again for the U.S. House of Representatives. “We’re working very hard, bringing Dave on board and others into our campaign circle. Momentum is building daily,” said Bailey. O’Shea announced his intentions to run for the state House at the first of the year. The Primary race will mean both Democratic candidates will need to expend resources before facing Franz, who is running unopposed for the Republican nomination. “We recognize that the Primary is our focus. We do realize, though, that we will have to spend resources to run a successful Primary campaign,” Bailey said. The 104th State House seat includes Leelanau, Benzie, Manistee and Mason counties.

SIGNS LIKE this in Centerville Township advertising fresh sweet cherries will likely be fewer this year due to a shortage of fruit.

Cherries are selling Continued from Page 1 State University extension director, has workers also picking sweets for the fresh market. But not many. “I want to keep the markets I’ve established going,” said Bardenhagen, a regular vendor at local farmer’s markets. “There’s not much out there.” Traditionally, Bardenhagen has been flush in fruit, allowing him to provide fresh sweets to local grocery stores. That won’t happen this year. “We just don’t have the volume,” he said. The lack of fruit is also affecting the method used to compensate those handpicking the fruit. Instead of being paid based on the number of lugs har-

vested, Bardenhagen said the crew handpicking will be paid on an hourly basis. “There’s too much distance between the fruit,” he said. “They’ll be picking a little here and a little there.” Bardenhagen and Steve Kalchik, who has 45 to 50 acres in cherries, will employ mechanical shakers to harvest what little fruit is available for canning. “There are darn few there,” said Kalchik, who anticipates starting to shake Friday. With just 15 to 20 percent of a “normal” crop, Kalchik doesn’t expect the harvest to take long. “The Ulsters and Sams will go for dark canners, the Emperor Francis, for briners (made into maraschino cher-

ries) … I just want to get them off the trees so the birds don’t get used to having them as a food source.” Most years, the Kalchiks hire a crew of nine or 10 for the cherry harvest. This year, they are down to four. “I’ve got four guys and even they are day to day,” he said. The usual week-long sweet harvest could be wrapped up in just a couple days, depending on the number of shakers used, Kalchik said. For the time being, Bakker said there’s been no problem selling fruit, despite a doubling of the price. “I see some people hesitating, but whatever’s there disappears,” he said.

Leelanau still tops in cherries Continued from Page 1 The trend extended here. For instance, in 2006, there were 118 farms on the Leelanau peninsula growing sweet cherries. Five years later the number had fallen to 107 farms. However, the number of acres planted in sweet cherries dropped only slightly during the five-year period from 3,500 to 3,450. According to the survey, tart cherry trees covered 7,100 acres in Leelanau County at the conclusion of 2011, down 300 acres from 2006. The number of farms growing tarts dropped from 124 to 107. Statewide, the number of farms growing tarts dropped from 540 to 450 in the five-year period, although the total acreage remained at 32,000. Don Gregory of Cherry Bay Orchards, one of the largest cherry growers in Leelanau, related the changes to his business. “In our own operation we haven’t planted as many sweets and other varieties,” said Gregory, who provided two reasons. “Our business model with tarts is vertical in that we pit and dry them (under the Shoreline or Cherry Bay label). We have a known market. Sweets are tougher to grow and the profitability is not what we want it to be.” Gregory also wondered if some of the loss in cherry acreage is being replanted in grapes. “It would be interesting to see the amount of acreage which went into grapes over the same period,” Gregory said. Leelanau County is the fastest

growing wine region in the state boasting more than 20 wineries, many of them in the past five years. “A lot of farmers are choosing to diversify their crops. We’ve honed in on doing more apples,” Gregory said. Results from the most recent rotational fruit survey, which would include grape acreage, were not available for publication this week. Overall, 69 percent of land in sweet cherries statewide was found in Leelanau and Grand Traverse counties. Gold, Emperor Francis and Ultster were the top three varieties, accounting for 58 percent of the sweet acreage. Harvest of those varieties began this week in Leelanau County. It’s estimated that this year’s crop will turn out less than one-quarter its usual volume due to an early spring warmup which was followed by freezing temperatures. Tarts were also decimated by spring frosts. Tart acreage declines in the south-

west and west central regions of the state were offset by an increase in acreage in the northwest. For example, between west-central and southwest Michigan, there were a 550 fewer acres planted in sour varieties from the beginning to the end of the study period. Some 4,500 new tart cherry orchards were added in Michigan from 2007-2011. Antrim and Charlevoix counties went from 40 to 34 farms in tarts, but the farms increased in size by 600 acres. “There have been more tart cherries going in the ground there … more so than here,” Gregory said. “I don’t think they’ve had the pressure for grapes we have here. People have also been buying land to put in as grape sites here. That could be one of the reasons for the loss of acreage.” Despite the loss of farms and acreage, Leelanau County remains well above other regions in terms of the sheer volume of fruit in production.

Elmwood native’s art is

KING CHERRY By Amy Hubbell Of The Enterprise staff

County native Dave Hodge went backs to his roots and has found success as an artist. Hodge, who grew up “in the shadow of Cherry Bend Grocery,” is the winner of the 2012 National Cherry Festival Art Competition. “It’s unorthodox, a little kitschy,” said Hodge, a 1984 graduate of Traverse City St. Francis. “Not classic looking … childlike in a way.” His “Royale Parade” submission is painted from above and features spectators who are cherries and parade participants as cherries. There’s even motorcycles being ridden by cherries and marching cherries with trumpets. Hodge, 46, grew up attending the National Cherry Festival with his three younger brothers. “It’s in my blood,” he said. But his childhood was marred by the death of his father, Richard, who died of brain cancer in 1981 at age 35. Hodge was 14. “It was like I lost my mom at the same time,” Hodge said. “She became withdrawn and was never quite the same.” A graduate of Michigan State University, Hodge taught English in Switzerland attended by students from Italy, France, Belgium, Libya and Japan, among others. When his teaching assignment ended, Hodge traveled through 17 countries in Western Europe and North Africa, as well as Greece. “Along the way, I did a lot of writing with the thought of developing a novel loosely based on my experiences,” he said. In 1994, Hodge moved to Seattle, where he would mainly work in publishing. There, he made repeated attempts at another book that evenDAVID HODGE tually became a sci-fi thriller Shadow Gathering, which was solicited by Penguin Publishing in 2003. While trying to flesh out the main character of his novel, Hodge, who had always been able to draw, began to teach himself to paint as part of the creative process. “I was working on my novel about an artist and threw myself into everything I could find as part of my research,” he said. His mother, Dorothy (Duperon) Hodge, died of meningitis in January 2002, when Hodge was 36. Crushed by this, Hodge still managed to produce a calendar of artwork, 13 Moons, which

ARTIST DAVID Hodge, an Elmwood Township native, taps into his love of Leelanau County and cherry country in this piece which depicts the cherries ride in the country. sold in more than 20 Seattle bookstores. “In 2008, at the onset of the Recession in Seattle, I lost my job and began painting again,” Hodge said. “I began to paint things I never thought I was capable of.” He joined LaFamilia Gallery and exhibited at several art shows throughout Seattle until 2011. “When I started out painting, my work was so much like everyone else. Then I began honing in on what makes my work special and unique. The cooperative gallery was a great training ground.” Hodge returned home late last year and began his artwork again. But, this time, it was a little different. “I asked myself, ‘How do I want to be remembered?’” As he began to sketch, Hodge developed animated cherries which took on characters of their own. At one point, the artist said he essentially locked himself in a room and painted 15 hours a day, seven days per week. When he emerged from his painting frenzy, Hodge had 70 acrylic paintings which he transformed into a “A Cherry’s Tale,” a modern fairy tale which celebrates the Grand Traverse

area and its community, and also explores universal themes of love and loss. The plot, developed in February of this year, revolves around “Charlie Orchard,” a cherry, whose entire family is wiped out in Valentine’s Day Blight, orphaning him. “Ironically, I completed the manuscript before the big warm up and the short crop,” Hodge said. Charlie is relocated to the Cherry Refuge Home for Boys. At the refuge, he earns a job tending the hedge maze, which helps him heal and rediscover himself. Later, Charlie meets Chelsea Shores, another orphan who aspires to be an actress. Together, they enjoy the picturesque surroundings and festive events of the Cherry Capital, and their friendship grows. But their relationship is threatened when Chelsea receives an acting scholarship and moves away to fulfill her dream. Alone, Charlie wonders if he will ever see Chelsea again, especially when she becomes a famous film star. Yet Chelsea surprises Charlie by returning home. Inspired, Charlie becomes the artist he always dreamed of being and his bond with Chelsea is secured ever after.

DAVID HODGE won the 2012 National Cherry Festival Art Competition for his submission ‘Royale Parade.’ “One of the biggest regrets in my life is that I haven’t had any children,” he said. “I’ve created something I think will give them joy and fulfilled my mom’s wish by writing something about the bereavement process.” Hodge’s A Cherry Tale has not yet

been published. He hopes to have copies available in 2013. In the meantime, the artist will be at the National Cherry Festival Arts and Crafts fair on Sunday, July 8, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. along Union Street in Traverse City.

Construction picked up a little in the past couple weeks, but the number of building permits issued remains significantly lower than the five-year high of 175 recorded in 2008. Fifteen building permits were issued in the last weeks of June, bringing the year-to-date (YTD) tally to 130-five more than the same time period last year. Up to now there had been a steady decline in the number of permits issued by the county Construction Code Authority for the six months of the year. In 2008, there were 175 recorded by the last week of June. The following year, the number fell to 157 and to 149 in 2010. At this time last year, just 125 permits had been recorded — a historic low. It appears as if activity bottomed out last year. The estimated value of projects was $1,024,302, bringing the year-to-date total to $12,151,421. It’s the highest total in three years when projects with an estimated value averaging $12,380,008 were underway. However, both are well below the same time in 2008 when 175 permits were recorded for $18.5 million in construction. Following is a list of projects for which permits have been issued, listed by the community in which the works is being done: • VILLAGE OF SUTTONS BAY — Albert and Rose Ann Kohler (CRF Construction) commercial alteration at 116 N. St. Joseph St. ($2,000); Patrick and Marjorie Gaudard (Sweetwater Contracting) additions to single-family residence at 260 N. Nanagosa Tr. ($47,950); Leon and Jan Smith Trust (Pine Bay Building and Remodeling) residential roof alteration at 480 S. Shore Dr. ($7,000). • ELMWOOD — Bradley Schichtel (Old School Builders) addition to single-family residence at 9397 E. Lakeview Rd. ( $44,160); Township of Elmwood (Hallmark Construction) commercial addition to Greilickville Harbor Park, pavilion no. 2 ($21,082); Roberto and Tina Corpus (Mission Bay Contracting and Renovations) addition to single-family residence at 13831 S. Windcrest ($32,400); Neumann Realty Inc. (Wayne Tyge Builders) commercial alteration at 12719 S.

Bingham Board adopts budget By Eric Carlson Of The Enterprise staff

The Bingham Township Board last week formally adopted a $371,981 spending plan for the next ďŹ scal year beginning July 1 based on estimated revenues of $351,180. The budget was the subject of a hearing at the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual meeting earlier this month. Unlike every other township on Leelanau County, Binghamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ scal year coincides with that of the local school district. Township clerk Peggy Core noted that although the new budget indicates the township may be running a deďŹ cit in the coming year, the township

expects to end the current ďŹ scal year having spent some $16,000 less than anticipated. She said the 2011-2012 budget, which was expected to run a deďŹ cit, will break even. Whether the 2012-2013 budget adopted last week ends in a $21,000 deďŹ cit by this time next year as expected is another question, however. Township ofďŹ cials noted that there is currently a $382,734 reserve fund balance built into the overall budget â&#x20AC;&#x201D; leaving more in township coffers than necessary even if the new annual budget runs a deďŹ cit. In other business at its regular monthly meeting on June 18, the Bingham Township Board: â&#x20AC;˘ Discussed the need to improve a

portion of Bingham Road near the road end at West Grand Traverse Bay where Bingham Park is located. The board authorized township supervisor Ross Ard to seek a price estimate for improvements from the Leelanau County Road Commission. The topic will be on next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda, Core said. â&#x20AC;˘ Discussed township hall rental fees. Core said fees had been set at $35 per event, with a $50 deposit, at least six years ago. Core said she and treasurer Sandra Grant were looking into guidelines for how best to conďŹ gure township hall rental fees and would bring information back for additional discussion at next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting, Monday, July 16.

Hansen and his wife, Jennifer, enrolled their son into first grade, spending the next two years commuting between their home in Mount Pleasant. Their son graduated from Pathfinder in 2011 and now attends West Senior High School. Hansen, who has a master’s degree in education from Aquinas College, accepted a position as middle-high school science teacher at Northport in 2003. His commitment to improving education garnered the attention of the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District, helping in transition in 2008 as the regional technology integration specialist.

S-B to start school year in black By Amy Hubbell Of The Enterprise staff

A property deal, additional Impact Aid and lower than anticipated utilities and substitute costs has Suttons Bay School in the black going into the 2012-13 school year. The Board of Education voted unanimously Monday night, following a public hearing, to adopt a $7.1 million budget, down from $7.2 this year. “This is the first time in five years our board members haven’t had to lay workers off or had a deficit to make up,” Superintendent Mike Murray said. “Our salaries are down, but our benefits are up.” The budget is based on a blended count of 739.27, which includes 150 “virtual” students enrolled locally and through the district’s learning lab in Jackson. Based on a per pupil foundation allowance of $6,966, up $120 from this year, the school’s state funding is $3.1 million, which also includes “at risk” funding, business manager LeAnn Eustice said. Federal funding of $500,484 is identified in the budget and $114,127 is expected to come from other political subdivisions. Local property taxes of $3,059.153 are identified in the 2012-13 spending plan as is $206,353 from the sale of the athletic property to the Village of Suttons Bay. The sale and the subsequent “re-sale” of the property back to the school district on a land contract, was formalized last week. This, plus a few other fortuitous developments, appears to be helping the district build its fund balance, which is $332,866 going into the coming school year. Murray said the district received an additional $24,295 in federal Impact Aid that hadn’t been anticipated. The cost of substitute teachers was $21,065 lower than expected and the mild winter reduced the cost of utilities by $43,000. “Without these things happening, we’d be at a fund balance of $4,016 going into 2012-13,” Murray said.

“That wouldn’t cover our payroll for July.” Costs of instruction are identified at $3.9 million in the coming year, down from just over $4 million this year. Meanwhile, $3 million is identified for support services. Although salaries are down, the cost of benefits continues to burden the school district. Despite a $77,959 state-payment to help offset the district’s retirement cost, the district will end up paying retirement costs equal to 27.37 percent of employee salaries, up from 24.46 this year. Cost is expected to reach higher than 30 percent in the next five years. In other business during the final meeting of the 2011-12 school year, the board approved a letter of intent to join of a consortium of schools from the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School district to seek health insurance.

Hansen was promoted to supervisor of instructional services, engaging with school across the five-county area and was invited to speak around the state as an educational leader. Most recently, Hansen was a trustee on the Pathfinder Board volunteering to lead faculty in a series of professional development workshops as well as a detailed self-study of the school’s Independent School Association of the Central States accreditation to be renewed this fall. “He truly feels the pulse of Pathfinder and has a contagious desire to bring our school to its highest potential,” said Curtis Kuttnauer, head search committee chair. Kuttanauer said the field of 20 candidates was narrowed down to four semifinalists. “From the four, it immediately became apparent that Rob was the right person,” Kuttnauer said.

The Pathfinder School in Greilickville has appointed Robert Hansen as head of school. Hansen discovered Pathfinder, which teaches K-8 grades, while traveling north on vacation in 2003. Frustrated with what he viewed as “curiosity impairment” of his local school, Hansen connected with Pathfinders approach to teaching. “The constructivist educational philosophy of Pathfinder describes the most effective means of learning,” said Hansen, who takes over the post on Sunday. “The magic of Pathfinder is in its ability to make this philosophy visible in all they do.”

The Northport Village Council adopted new ordinances last week calling for the appointment of the clerk and treasurer. Both ordinances passed 5-2 with Village president Fred Steffens and trustee Donna Groomes opposing. The two members of the Council said they felt the positions should remain elected as they have been since the village was incorporated in 1849. “I don’t think it’s up to us to take away the choice of the people to vote,” Groomes said. “ “I see advantages of both, but I like to have an elected clerk,” Steffens said. “I’ve had one all my life.” The ordinances, which were passed at last Thursday’s Council meeting, go into effect 45 days after their adoption unless a petition signed by at least 10 percent of the village’s registered voters is filed with the village clerk or clerk’s office within the 45-day period. If a petition is filed within the appropriate time frame, the ordinance would only take effect if approved at the Nov. 6 general election. The clerk’s position, currently held by Joni L. Scott, has been controversial since a complaint was filed challenging her residency and whether she held the office properly. “I’m tired of it,” said trustee Chris Holton, throwing his hands up in the air while casting the first vote in support of appointing the clerk. After the meeting, Holton said he

was inundated with phone calls. “I guess I blind-sided a few people with my decision,” Holton said. “But we’ve gone round and round with the idea of having an appointed clerk and I believe this gives us a little more to draw from and possibly a little more control. “It’s time to move on. We needed to do this. I needed to do this and now the decision has been made.” Trustees Barb VonVoigtlander, who resides next to the home where Scott’s residency was questioned, and Phil Mikesell have pushed for having an appointed clerk. “I think at this stage that this would be a good-government issue,” said Mikesell, citing a cost-savings in not having to train a new clerk after every election. Mikesell said the Village of Suttons Bay has gone the same route, and is happy with its arrangement. Mikesell noted that the clerk’s position is an important but is not a policymaking position. “I know that there is some opposition to this for reasons of timing and stuff,” Mikesell said. “But I would hope there is no opposition to this for political argument. “This is an argument for the character of village government and how the village’s interests are best served.” VonVoigtlander, who made the motion to adopt the clerk’s appointment ordinance, reminded the audience that the state laws governing villages had been amended to allow for the appointment of clerks and treasurers.

“We’re not violating any law by suggesting the ordinance,” she said. “All we’re doing is creating the appointed position.” VonVoitlander added that the application process for a new clerk would be down the road. Under the appointment process, the Council president would have the authority to nominate a clerk to fill the vacancy, but the applicant would need board approval. After the meeting, Mikesell said he was pleased that the new ordinance was adopted. “I think it’s the appropriate move and it will serve the village well going forward,” Mikesell said. There were concerns in previous meetings that a petition drive could put the ordinance to a vote at the same time that clerk candidates are on the same ballot. “I have no idea if it will come to a referendum,” Mikesell said. “I didn’t even know how this was going to go.” During public comment period prior to the appointment discussions, resident Rick Burmeister reiterated that the only reason the Council was considering the appointment route was so Scott could keep her job. “You are trying to change the rules that have been in force for years,” said Burmeister, who had originally filed a complaint with the Leelanau County Sheriff’s Deparment challenging Scott’s residency. “Barb, I know you haven’t seen her live there for the last two months. I know it because she hasn’t been there the last two months.

V-C committee to work out windmill decommissioning, indemnity issues By Mike Spencer Of The Enterprise staff

The Northport Village Council last week agreed to set up a committee to hammer out final revisions on a lease with Leelanau Community Energy, LLC which plans to build a wind turbine on village property this summer. The ad hoc committee had hoped to meet with LCE president Doug McInnis or a representative of the group after an engineer said it would cost about $16,000 to decommission and remove the turbine. Earlier this month McInnis had promised to restore the property and set aside $4,000 in an escrow fund to cover the costs. But Jim Schiffer of the Schiffer Group, Inc. of Traverse City, said the project closeout and restoration would cost a lot more. The biggest cost, according to a June 20 memo by Schiffer, would be $8,000 for dismantling and transporting the tower off the site. In addition to a large escrow fund, Village president Fred Steffens said last Thursday during the regular Council meeting that he wants to remove a clause in which the village indemnifies the LCE. Steffens said state law, according to a previous opinion the Council got from Robert Tremp in 2011, prohibits the village from indemnifying anyone. Road construction for the windmill started last week. The LCE had said at the June 7 meeting that it plans to start windmill construction in early August. Steffens said the $16,000 figure was “about what I anticipated.” Steffens had asked village attorney Will Davison for an opinion on decommissioning costs; he referred the village to an engineer. Schiffer has been involved in numerous village projects, including the marina renovation which is also finished. Steffens said the amount does not take into account revenue from recycling scrap. “That shouldn’t be a consideration,” Steffens said. “The consideration is that the general public should not have to deal with this if something happens.” Steffens said the indemnification clause “is going to have to come out

of” the lease. “I think we can sit down and go through this and without making a big fuss over it,” he added. The decommissioning bond was one of many points Davison made in a lease analysis on July 28, 2010 to the former Council. That memo was not reviewed when the new Council approved the lease on June 9, 2011. Trustee Barb VonVoigtlander, who plans to run against Steffens in the November general election, said Davison did not bring up indemnification as an issue. “He never mentioned anything about indemnification,” she said. “Our own attorney doesn’t see that as an issue.” “That’s fine,” Steffens said. “If so, he’s the man that’s on the line.” Administrative coordinator Greg King said footings for the turbine construction will be put in place soon. “What we have to do is make sure that everybody is happy with all the other stuff,” King said. “I don’t think anybody is in a position to say ‘stop.’” “I don’t want to stop them, just clarify,” Steffens said. “And the taxpayers are satisfied that we’re not liable. “That’s where I’m coming from. It’s not earth-shattering. We’ll get it done.” During the public comment period, Mike Cann said he was part of citizens group that studied the lease and prepared a white paper discussing the financial benefits, critical issues on the site lease and problems with the political process that led the lease signing. “The facts (are) that the Village is now stuck with a lease that was approved, in a rush, as a favor for the developers to get a grant,” Cann said. “That’s an understandable thing to help people because I’ve been in this business and understand how it is to get grants. “But unfortunately that grant was never approved.” Cann said “it does not appear that the lease was given the kind of review and attention and negotiation that it should have and frankly it is flawed.” Cann said the revenue the village gets in rent is less than 2 percent of

the projected revenue of $575,000 the LCE will receive. “It appears that the village has not done its fiduciary responsibility to the taxpayers,” he said, noting it was his experience that there are a lot of unforeseen events that take place with owning, financing and developing wind projects. Cann also brought up the point that the village should not indemnify anyone. “I don’t believe with all the discussions you’ve had with indemnification on the prior contracts that this should stand in the contract,” he said. Resident Ron Schobel also spoke, supporting Cann’s analysis. “He has confirmed all the work that we’ve been doing in the past 12 months,” Schobel said. “But what really bothers me, that in at least my count, 15 people that had the opportunity to look at the Davison memo. “Mr. Steffens found out (about the memo) by accident. To not inform this man of what that memo contained ... and to hold Mr. Steffens accountable for signing that lease ... is absolutely absurd.”

“Everybody knows that she doesn’t live here, but yet you are going to try and change the rules so she can keep her job.” Burmeister added it was just wrong to adopt an ordinance to appoint a new clerk. “There’s not one person who can look me in the eye and say that she has lived here. Not one!” he said. The Council, in its two-hour meeting, also: • Heard from King, in his administrative report, that the Michigan Occupational Safety & Health Administration (MIOSHA) had cited the village for infractions totaling $900. King said a $500 fine was a result of Department of Public Works employees not having the proper glasses when dealing with chlorine tanks. “It’s usually $3,000 every time,” said King, who recalled three other inspections. • Heard a complaint that someone may be intentionally chopping off the tip of village flowers on display near the Mill Street Bridge. • Held a first reading of a new ordinance to provide for the elimination of unsafe buildings. The idea for the ordinance came from the June 7 meeting when residents complained about a dilapidated building at 206 W. Sixth St. • Approved a street committee recommendation to spend $31,707 on new asphalt paving. The streets include Warren, Park, Wing, Rose and the DPW Building on Third Street.

The term refers to paying attention to what you are doing. Finish the work in front of you then look to see how well you performed. The effect of Looking -Up early while hitting any golf shot is that the moment your attention leaves the task, your arms slow down, hands speed up, and the body moves out of position early causing unwanted results

Start with the basics. Stable stance, dominant eye over the ball, leading hand has a firm hold on club and leads throughout the stroke. The trailing hand feels the shot. Let your natural instinct dominate the stroke. Make up your mind, believe in your choices, and make a smooth stroke keeping the putter-blade square to the line you intend to roll the ball on. Keep your attention on the line not the hole.


As we age players tend to take too narrow of a stance, slouch more, grip tighter, and swing harder. Be wiser; make sure your stance supports your effort. Start with instep width at or slightly outside hip width, lesson the grip pressure. Work on your flexibility and regain swing length. Slow down the swing and let time build energy. Let the mass of the club head do the work.

An observation deck with a boardwalk and seating benches, as well as a new set of stairs leading to the beach, may be in the works for Old Settlers Park in Empire Township. The deck and stairs would be built by high school students in the Suttons Bay SEEDS Youth Corps program and could be paid for with $24,000 in 2 percent grant funding from the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians. The money will be partially matched by SEEDS to a total project cost of $40,000. The group will not know if they will receive the grant until late July, said Bill Watson, youth development director for SEEDS. The deck will let people get a little closer to nature and to the rare monkey flower that grows there without crushing it. The stairs would replace an aging set that leads to a landing near the beach, Watson said. “The idea is to replace them to make them safer,” said Watson, who oversees after school and Youth Corps programs for SEEDS. The monkey flower, a semi-aquatic plant that flourishes in wet soil, is an endangered species that only exists in a few isolated spots in Michigan. Designed by Lori Lyman, a landscape architect, the 16-by-24-foot cantileverstyle deck will extend over the southeastern shore of Glen Lake. The deck will allow people to see the flower without walking on it. Students will use lumber milled from black locust trees, an invasive species that grows in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The trees, planted by early settlers to the area, spread and grow rapidly, Watson said. They also put out a toxin that kills native plants and trees such as beech and maple that compete against it. The result is a monoculture, Watson said. But while black locust trees may be bad for the Lakeshore area, their wood is very good for building decks, Watson said. The wood is strong, rot resistant and will last three times longer than treated lumber, he said. It’s also non-toxic and safe for children to play on. Under a cooperative agreement with the National Park Service, SEEDS Youth Corps students are able to remove the trees and use them for construction projects. The trees are milled by a local forester with a portable band saw. “We take the logs and we’re milling them into boards and we’re making decks out of this timber,” Watson said. “So we’re taking this invasive tree and turning it into a product that is much better than treated lumber.” The deck will take about three weeks to build, he said. SEEDS students won a national award earlier this year for construction projects on South Manitou Island and in the Leelanau Conservancy’s Teichner Preserve in Cleveland Township. The SEEDS Youth Corps provides after school programs in 12 area schools, including Suttons Bay. Students put in at least 300 hours over the summer working on conservation and stewardship projects. They are paid $7.40 per hour, but also earn a college scholarship worth $2,700. Students learn on-the-job skills, but also take classes to earn certifications in things such as OSHA, first aid and chain saw safety.

Windy Ridge Boys mix in other styles with all the jazz By Corey L. Frost Enterprise intern

THE WINDY Ridge Boys play jazz standards as well as genres such as blues, bluegrass and rock and roll. Together they perform at Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leelanau Table on Wednesday nights. though. The mixture of backgrounds among the musicians gives each of their selections new ďŹ&#x201A;air as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re constantly doing their own arrangements of the popular songs. The group began with Keeling and Bottenhorn. The two found out they play guitar with similar styles after becoming neighbors in 1995. They started with a few gigs, and after playing

together for a little while, met Sparling in 2004. Sparling offered them an opportunity to record in his studio, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long before he was playing alongside the duo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It turned out he could actually play pretty well,â&#x20AC;? Bottenhorn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still in his probationary period though.â&#x20AC;? They added upright bassist Jack

The Windy Ridge Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; use of jazz standards can turn any room into a Chicago nightclub. Their blending of other musical styles and personal humor though, gives them what others can only describe as that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lake Leelanau sound.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the Lake Leelanau sound is,â&#x20AC;? guitarist Phil Keeling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we got it baby.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just us and John Rutherford,â&#x20AC;? Joe Bottenhorn said laughing. Jazz standards are their bread and butter. Playing popular songs from the Tin Pan Alley days up to Cole Porter, the Windy Ridge Boys are sound jazz musicians. Mixing in other styles such as blues, bluegrass and rock and roll however, has made them one of the more distinct groups in Leelanau County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The mixture of music in our repertoire is a lot more widespread than most,â&#x20AC;? Keeling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not that other groups canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play the things we do, but they usually have one style really going for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our set list is eclectic and diverse.â&#x20AC;? They make that apparent by constantly switching up their song selection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just going to bash through a gig and play the same things over and over,â&#x20AC;? keyboardist Tim Sparling said. Selecting songs from artists such as Eric Clapton, James Taylor and Jerry Lee Lewis are a testament to that. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not simply a cover band

Table in Suttons Bay. The group plays through dinner on Wednesdays, starting their sets at 6 p.m. and ďŹ nishing up at about 8:30 p.m. Their diversity seems to have attracted a dedicated following.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just really love hearing them,â&#x20AC;? said Helen SutterďŹ eld during a recent dinner at the Suttons Bay restaurant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They play music from all different eras and I love the style they have â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just beautiful.â&#x20AC;? The Ridge Boys have provided songs for the Traverse City Film Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compilation CD, but have never recorded their own. One is in the works, however, and the group hopes to put it out in the near future. The small-town success is their thing though and remaining popular with their loyal fans is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important to the group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think anyone here has any aspirations of being on the cover of Rolling Stone,â&#x20AC;? Keeling said of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking to get rich doing this, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a lot of fun.â&#x20AC;? Remaining modest, while keeping their humorous undertones, is one of the truly unique aspects of the group. Each member holds a deep appreciation for the fans theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve collected over the years, but will never miss an opportunity to joke around with them between sets or even between songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try not to interact too much,â&#x20AC;? joked Keeling, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we have to keep them quiet.â&#x20AC;?

both of which are in Suttons Bay. Leonard says she welcomes new restaurants to the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are, for a seasonal restaurant, doing pretty good,â&#x20AC;? Leonard said of her restaurants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly we could always use more business, but I believe that the more businesses in the area, the more good restaurants, the more people will be drawn to the area. So the more, the better.â&#x20AC;? Leonard would like to see restaurant owners get together to offer coupons or some sort of restaurant tour to bolster business during the off season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The restaurants that are up and coming are all going to be fun,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all a different ďŹ&#x201A;avor so they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be competition for each other.â&#x20AC;? Though Mark Waldrup has been a resident of Traverse City for the last 25 years, he spent the last ďŹ ve years running a restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyo. The couple has done extensive renovations to their new place, the former Gustoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant, an Italian eatery that closed about a year ago. Their pub will feature chef Scott Williams from Traverse City and serve up seafood and stuffed burgers Minneapolis-style. It will have a sports atmosphere with six ďŹ&#x201A;at screen TVs, and will have live bands and dancing on the weekends, Waldrup said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a little bit of nightlife in Suttons Bay,â&#x20AC;? he said. Leaske, who is from the United Kingdom, says his British-style pub and restaurant will strive to be the living room of the community. A lounge area with comfortable sofas and chairs will have TVs and a library, and true to pub-style, the bar area will have leather-upholstered benches and three hand drawn beers on tap, Leaske said. The restaurant will seat 76, with all of the dining areas on enclosed porches that give a view of Little Traverse Lake across M-22. The kitchen is in the hands of chef Judy Leaske. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be serving up dishes like sauteed whelks, crispy haggis and toad in the hole, which includes Yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes and English-style bangers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to bring the best of my homeland to Leelanau County,â&#x20AC;? said Leaske, who has experience running a tour company and a leather wholesale company.

THE STONY Point Pub, owned by Mark and Juli Waldrup, will open in a few weeks. The Suttons Bay bar and restaurant will have live music and dancing on the weekends.


By Patti Brandt Of The Enterprise staff

A British pub, an Italian restaurant and an establishment that will have folks dancing the night away are either open or set to open in Leelanau County. The Little Traverse Inn in Maple City, the Stony Point Pub in Suttons Bay, and Bella Fortuna North in Lake Leelanau will each offer something a little different to those who work, play and live in the county. And while there are already several established restaurants in the area, the new owners say that offering something unique is the key to being successful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The feedback weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting from the locals is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing something a little different,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Waldrup, co-owner with wife Juli Waldrup of the Stony Point Pub, located on St. Joseph Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to bang down our doors. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do well.â&#x20AC;? Graeme Leaske, who with his wife Judy Leaske, opened Little Traverse Inn on Friday, said he did his research before purchasing the former North restaurant on M-22 and thinks the British-style pub will bring something special to the Leelanau peninsula. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have bought the place if we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it would be successful,â&#x20AC;? Leaske said. Bella Fortuna North, in Lake Leelanau, will hold its grand opening from 1-4 p.m. this Friday and Saturday. Owned by Dr. Bob Hesse and Dr. Jane Fortune, the restaurant will feature authentic Tuscan cuisine. The Leaskes worked feverishly for several weeks to ďŹ nish renovations, tame the garden and get the dusty kitchen sparkling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun when you take a 120-year-old building and remodel it,â&#x20AC;? said Graeme Leaske, who is Scottish and wore a traditional kilt at the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand opening. A bagpiper greeted guests on the porch. Also a bed and breakfast, the 10-bedroom, two-bathroom second ďŹ&#x201A;oor of the business is being remodeled to have six suites and a coffee station. In Suttons Bay, the Waldrups are waiting for their liquor license from the state to come through so they can get the business off the ground. Mark Waldrup is conďŹ dent that will be in about two weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to open,â&#x20AC;? Waldrup said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just waiting on the last piece of documentation from the state.â&#x20AC;? Sally Guzowski, executive director of the Leelanau Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, said having more choices for diners can only help the economy in Leelanau County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very exciting that we have more restaurants because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re deďŹ nitely going to have more people,â&#x20AC;? Guzowski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all great.â&#x20AC;? Pam Leonard is the owner of the Vineyard Inn and Corkyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bistro,

It took Joshua Jacobs a few swings before the bobber plopped in the water. It didn’t float for long before a bluegill mistook a worm for its lunch, and the fight was on. Joshua, even at 5-years-old, was no match for the ‘gill. Soon it was dad Jack Jacobs’ job to remove the hook, and toss the fish back into Kids Fishing Pond at Veronica Valley Park in Bingham Township. The scene was repeated hundreds of times Sunday at Kids Fishing Day, which attracted about 500 young fisher folks, parents and friends. They were entertained by a fly fishing demonstration by DJ Schmidt, raptors presented by Wings of Wonder director Rebecca Lessard, a frogs and turtle display brought by Jim Kacin, a replica fish painting station, hot dogs and pop served by Camelot Construction — and more bluegills than a young fellow could wave a pole at. “We love it,” said Jack Jacobs of Suttons Bay. “We think it’s a great idea. It gets kids away from the TV — it’s a great program.” Committee chair Pete Taylor welcomed a steady group of fishing patrons at the sign-up tent. “We’re going to end up with over 500. We’re close to what we had last year, and I didn’t anticipate that based on the chances for bad weather,” said Taylor. “It’s another magical day.”

Leland boat ramp to open by Fourth

Salmon, clients up for Fishtown charter captains

biologically-rich natural area that features meadows, old growth woodlands, wetlands and lake habitats. On Sunday, the historic DeYoung Farm in Elmwood Township will host a walk that will include a history of the farm house. Participants will hear the history of the farm as it grew with the Traverse City region, including the DeYoung story — and the pioneering Campbell family before them. They will also learn how plans for the farm are progressing. Docents Dave Amos and Judy Smart will lead the 1 p.m. hike. Registration is required for events, and can be made by calling 256-9665.

Regardless, he’s looking forward to running a harbor not under construction. “We’re getting there; there’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” Dzuba said. “It looks like we’re on schedule. I hope we’re on schedule because I’m telling everyone Friday.” — by Alan Campbell


Michigan. Speaking Monday, Crandell had just led a group of clients to nine salmon that morning. He said catches have averaged 8-10 on a half day charter. As for business, captain Jim Munoz reported that reservations are up over the past two years. “I’ve got a good week scheduled. My bookings are better than they’ve been in two years” he said. “If we have a normal year for weather, it’s should be a very good year.”

in past years. Although nine new parking spaces will be created with the makeover, Dzuba expects parking for boaters to remain a problem. For now, he’s directing boaters with empty trailers to park on the former county courthouse property, which the county hopes to sell in September. The boat ramp has drawn concern from charter boat captains who hope to use it to remove their boats at the end of the fishing season. Although it’s been widened to handle two launches at once, the ramp may lack enough depth to handle larger boats, some believe. “I don’t know if we’re going to be able to pull our boats out the way it is right now,” said captain Bob Schlitts, whose 28-foot Omega Sportfisherman is docked in Fishtown. Dzuba said the ramp size and angle was approved by the state Waterways Commission. “The reality is all of that information has been taken into consideration, and that’s (the reconstructed ramp) is the product,” he said.

Charter boat captains working out of Fishtown say salmon catches and clients are both up. “It’s far ahead of normal,” captain Bill Crandell said. “Usually you’re catching lake trout and an occasional salmon might get mixed in. But now the story is salmon.” For some reason, likely an early start to summer weather, salmon started showing up around the Manitou islands in May. Generally, consistent catches don’t start until early or even mid-July as salmon schools work their way north from their wintering grounds in south Lake

“They’re going to pour a lot of concrete this week.” Although he knows an uptick in construction activity in the Leland Harbor will complicate his job, Leland Township harbor master Russell Dzuba is ready to wind down an extended remaking of the public waterfront area. In the planning stage since 2002, reconstruction of the Leland Harbor should largely be completed within the next two weeks — including the pouring of the parking lot leading to a widened boat launch. The launch, Dzuba expects, will be open prior to the Fourth of July as promised. With the Leland harbor launch out, boaters have had to travel to Glen Arbor or Northport to launch into Lake Michigan. Completion of public restrooms, Dzuba continued, would occur the weekend after the Fourth of July. He’s trying to move up the scheduled date for Consumers Energy to connect power — it’s now set for Monday, July 9. Hallmark Construction workers and heavy equipment have dominated the harbor in the past weeks as part of Phase II of the Leland Harbor project, which will cost $940,000. State grants are paying for the bulk of the work, with the township contribution coming from boater fees. One source that will be providing less revenue is launch fees. The township previously charged $5 to launch; however, the state Waterways Commission won’t allow the township to collect the fee from boaters who have purchased a state Recreation Passport with their vehicle’s license plate. The passport is represented as two tiny “P”s on the top and bottom of license tabs, making enforcement difficult at best. Dzuba is considering whether to collect any boat launch fees. The fees brought in nearly $15,000 annually to the harbor coffers

Empire man’s ‘Chickadees’ book a hit with kids up north By Patti Brandt Of The Enterprise staff

Empire resident Bill O. Smith says that when he began writing “Chickadees at Night” he wasn’t trying to write a children’s book. His “picture book for all ages,” as he calls it, just happened. And now that book just happens to be the No. 1 bestselling hardcover book in northern Michigan for 2012, according to Horizon Books in Traverse City. “It’s creating quite a stir in this area,” said Smith, 63. The book is, in fact “flying off the shelves,” he quipped, having sold hundreds of copies. Smith got the idea for the book when he retired and moved to Empire in 2008 to take care of a family member who lived in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore area. They spent lots of time watching the chickadees, which were the first birds to arrive at a feeder in the morning and the last to leave at night. “I just got to thinking, ‘Where do they go at night?’” said Smith, and the book took off from there. After deciding to self-publish, Smith hired popular watercolor artist Charles R. Murphy of Traverse City to illustrate the book. He then created Sleepytime Press, his own company, and published the book. Smith has a sequel written, but says book publishing is an expensive undertaking. He’s waiting for the book to make a little more money before printing the second chickadee book. An elementary school principal in Suttons Bay and Traverse City for 20 years, as well as a natural storyteller, Smith says he has a good idea of what children like. “A great children’s book, it absorbs them into a new world,” he said. It should also be reassuring, he

said. That doesn’t mean there can’t be monsters, but in the end the child should know that all is right with the world. “It’s very tricky to do that without talking down,” Smith said. “Talking down to children is a very common and a very dangerous thing to do. And it doesn’t work in literature.” If the book is written in rhyme, “It really has to be Dr. Seuss spot on rhyme,” he said. “It’s not like song lyrics.” When the book is read out loud, as children’s books often are, it should not be “sing-songy,” he said. “It’s got to have its own flow and rhythm. It takes a good ear, a childlike kind of ear.” While Smith admits the book is a flight of fancy, he says the truth is that 99 percent of adults don’t know what birds do at night.

“People may question what birds do at night, but they don’t really know,” he said. “So an adult can have fun reading this to the child. In fact, it’s meant to be great fun for the reader as well as for the child.” The book sells for about $19 and can be purchased at Treeline Gallery and Gallery 22 in Suttons Bay,

at the Visitor Center in Empire, and at Rich’s Barber Shop, also in Empire. For every book sold, Smith donates a percentage of proceeds to Wings of Wonder, a raptor rehabilitation center in Empire Township. Smith will be signing books on July 11 at the Cottage Book Shop in Glen Arbor; on July 12 at Dog

At the conclusion of their stay, they usually give a public presentation. No fees are charged for the residency but artists are asked, on a voluntary basis, to donate a work which reflects their time here. Thus, a strong collection of over 30 images of this area forms the GAAA’s artist-in-residence collection. Recent additional to the collection will be on view at the library this summer.

A quarter century ago, painter Gene Rantz lost his best painting buddy and friend to cancer. But next week, Rantz will join that old friend’s artistically acclaimed daughter, Deborah Ebbers, in showing their newest original work at the Old Art Building in Leland. The three-day showing starts Friday, July 6. Rantz met Bert Ebbers in Kalamazoo in the early 1960s, before Deborah’s birth, when both were young commercial artists. Bert, born in the Netherlands during WWII, had immigrated to America with his family after the war. Both men longed to become professional fine artists and vowed that when their families were raised, they would leave the commercial world to pursue their dreams. They studied together, painted local landscapes and even took family painting vacations to northern Michigan. Early on it was obvious that Bert’s daughter, Deborah, even at age 6, had uncommon talents, influenced by her father and her mother Mercedes, also an artist. Rantz eventually packed his sailboat, left Kalamazoo and sailed north, anchoring for good in Northport in 1985, where he’s found many friends, patrons and fans of his atmospheric landscapes. Bert died in 1987, at 48, before he could pursue the career he aspired to. But his daughter, Deborah, has achieved a national reputation with her highly-detailed jewel-like oil painting. She grew up in Grand Rapids but moved to Northport in 2006. She shows at the Ann Nathan Gallery in Chicago. Her work is in more than 150 private collections across the nation, as well as 150 corporate collections including Alticor Corp. (Amway’s parent company) in Ada, Mich., Prentice Women’s Hospital in Chicago and SemGroup in Tulsa, Okla. Her work and career were featured in American Art Collector in February 2009 and January 2011. Several of Rantzes’ landscapes grace the corridors of Munson Medical Center in Traverse City. He

Early businesses exhibit reveals Omena’s good old days It was a big weekend in Omena. The Omena Historical Society (OHS) opened its 2012 exhibit, The Early Businesses of Omena, with a reception on Sunday afternoon at the OHS Museum in the Putnam Cloud Tower House afternoon. The exhibit is a replica of what downtown Omena looked like around the 1930’s. Larry Bensley and Jim Miller did an incredible job building all of the replicas. Joey Bensley did the interior displays in the buildings. The exhibit includes many pictures and documentation on that period and the history of each business. Two of Larry and Joey Bensley’s granddaughters, Bekah Bensley from Schoolcraft and Mikayla Roman from Traverse City, were there selling ice cream cones for 5 cents, and dressed as they would have in the days of the ice cream parlor. The exhibit is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from 1–4 p.m. now through August. On Saturday afternoon there was the dedication of the new Omena Village Preservation Association (OVPA) tiled bench in front of the Post Office. The bench project was a fund raiser for the OVPA. The tiles were donated by many Omena families and are a beautiful array of designs that capture different aspects of the community and commemorate current and past residents. Saturday night was also the opening of the summer season at the Northport Community Arts Center. The “Evening with Gershwin” program was a sell out, and the audience enjoyed an outstanding performance by guest artists Claudia Schmidt and Fred Szczepanski, along with the Northport Community Band and the Village Voices and Bobbie Lange on piano. Many Omena residents were in the audience and several are members of either the Village Voices or the Band. The final two numbers, Rhapsody in Blue and music from Porgy and Bess, had the audience on their feet applauding. Band director, Don Wilcox, did an

amazing job of adapting the score for many of the pieces for this performance. The OHS Mayoral elections are coming up fast for any aspiring four-legged residents of Greater Omena. Applications are due by Thursday, July 12, and are available on the OHS website, www. Voting will begin on Saturday, July 14 and go through July 20. On Saturday, July 7, there will be an open house celebration for Bea Kimmerly’s 100th birthday at Kateri Catholic Church in Peshawbestown. Bea turns 100 on July 9. Many of her family members will be in town and they will be celebrating on July 8th, as well. John and Mary Helen Ray are back from a trip to Durham, NC to see Ole and Joan Kiersey. While there, the four of them took a trip to Charleston, South Carolina. John and Mary Helen then headed to Asheville, NC for a reunion of Mary Helen’s suitemates from Denison. Kim and Linda Kemper enjoyed a visit from friends from Barrington, Ill. Their guests’ trip to Omena, however, sounded more like a scene from a Chevy Chase or Keystone Kops movie. Donna Alexander, Sue Griffith, Chris Dunn, Carol Nelson, and Susannah Vandam set out on what should have been a seven hour trip, and arrived about twelve hours later in Omena. After a lost, and then found, hearing aid, and lunch in Saugatuck in the midst of its Film Festival, they finally arrived just before 1 a.m. The ordeal was well worth it, though, with a boat ride in Omena Bay, the Suttons Bay Farmers Market, lunch and fabulous desserts at Martha’s, shopping, touring galleries and a winery. The Kempers, however, warned them: “Remember — what happens in and on the way to Omena, does not stay in Omena — it goes directly to the Omena News in the Leelanau Enterprise!” Ellie Stephenson is here for the summer. Bob and Karen Gelakowski have arrived from Florida. Karen’s mother, Lily Thorpe is also here for the summer with them. Dennis and Kathy Turner are here from Dayton, Ohio. Michael and

Glen Arbor prepares for Fourth with a cautionary note By BILL THOMPSON Phone 334-4486 Fax 334-3546 email: * * *

Here we go, another Fourth of July and my annual plea. The “Glen Arbor Anything Goes Parade” is a definite happening. It is fun and loud and a great time, which it should be. My plea is to the candy, hot dogs, T-shirts and anything else throwers in the parade toss, please throw over the crowd. Do not just throw the candy, etc. into the road. We have been pretty lucky so far and only had one incident, but we could have an accident, parents. Is the candy really that important that you would encourage your kids to run out in the street for a tootsie roll? Keep the kids back and throw over the crowd and I guarantee you will still have a blast. This year I have another plea and I feel that it is very important, I’m sure everyone has been following the forest fire in Colorado and all I can think of is a firework starting a fire in our forest. It would be easy and devastating. Use some common sense and watch the young people with the fireworks. Speaking of fire, the Glen Arbor Fire and Rescue Association annual pancake breakfast will be held on Sunday. Good food, great cause. The annual Flag Raising will be held on the Fourth at Old Settlers Park starting at 10 a.m. Patriotic Bike Decorating will follow at the Glen Arbor Artist Association at 10:30 a.m. The parade will leave Glen Haven at noon, so get there early to line up. The Glen Arbor Kazoo Corps will be marching in the parade for the 25th year. Wear red, white and blue and meet in the Christian Science Church parking lot at 11:45 am. All ages are welcome and Kazoos will be provided if by some chance you don’t have one. For more information call 334-4332. It seems like there are many more bicycles around this year. Most are doing well and staying out of traffic, but

some I have noticed are riding close to the middle of the road and almost daring someone to hit them, don’t be that someone and don’t be that bicycle rider. Congratulations to Lucky Lexi who won a car at the casino. When stopping by or driving by Wild flowers on M-22 in Glen Arbor, notice the landscaping berm that was built and designed by Greg Burgan for his mother, looks great. The Empire Lions Club is holding their Lucky 13 raffle again. Purchase a raffle ticket from a Lions member for $13 and get 13 chances to win either $100 or $300. You are also able to win more than once with the same ticket. There are only 300 tickets available. The 41st annual Glen Lake Women’s Club Art Fair will be held Wednesday, July 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Glen Arbor Township Hall. The proceeds are always used for scholarships, there is no admission charge, lunch is available. There will be about 100 local and nationally known artists who will bring their work to sell. In Empire, round robin play on Saturday’s at 10 a.m. at the Empire Tennis Courts bring a can of balls, racquets are available for loan. A long time resident of Empire has let us know she is moving downstate to be closer to her family. Ann Miller says she “leaves many great friends, a warm community and peace be with all.” The Empire Lions Club will be selling hot dogs at South Bar from the Fourth to the 7th of July. Happy birthday wishes to Les Haney, Pete Stern, Tim Nichols, Bob Ewing and Joan Kilgore who survived 50, trust me it gets easier. Happy Anniversary to Cherrie and Bill Stege. Have fun in the “most beautiful place in the nation,” be careful, don’t burn the forest. Don’t forget to pay at the ramp because you are on camera. Go Sox.

Sleeping Bear Coast Guard stations saved a lot of lives Editor’s note: The following story was reprinted with permission from Glen Arbor author George Weeks. It was taken from his book “Sleeping Bear, Yesterday and Today.”

SUPERINTENDENT RICHARD R. Peterson, center, of the Sleeping Bears Dunes National Lakeshore, was master of ceremonies when the Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Maritime Museum was dedicated on Aug. 4, 1984.

Looking Back in Leelanau County… A preliminary proposal to eliminate whitetail deer from North Manitou Island is drawing criticism from public and private officials who represent hunters. And the chance of actually succeeding in eradicating the island’s deer herd, are slim, according to Sleeping Bear Dunes natural resource specialist Max Holden. 35 YEARS AGO June 23, 1977 Cedar’s third annual Polish Festival still is some two months away, but the Leelanau County community already is getting ready for an event that last year attracted some 12,000 visitors. Selected as Polish Princess in a pageant Sunday was Rita Antoinette Fleis, 18, a 1977 Glen Lake High School graduate. *** Amid predictions that summertime revenue soon will exceed that from winter sports for the first time in its history, Sugar Loaf Mountain north of Cedar will dedicate $350,000 worth of new convention facilities Sunday. *** Leelanau County’s new tax protest organization now has an official name (Leelanau County Citizens for Reasonable Taxation), has developed a chain of command and funding program and has repeated a vow to find out how tax monies are being spent as well as how they are raised. 60 YEARS AGO June 26, 1952 SORRY. Due to the power interruption Wednesday morning and subsequent mechanical failures, the editors

were forced to leave out some of the neighborhood news from this week’s edition in order to meet the deadline. *** The state highway department informed the Leland Township Board by letter Wednesday that state officials are against a general 25 mile speed limit through Leland because it would be too difficult to enforce. *** A violent electrical, rain, wind, and hail storm ripped through the county Tuesday night taking out trees, interrupting electric and telephone service, and causing minor washouts. Winds rose to nearly 70 miles per hour along the Lake Michigan shore. Preliminary reports indicated that damage to the cherry crop was light because most of the fruit is still hard and green. 115 YEARS AGO June 24, 1897 G.M. Dame one of Northport businessmen made us a pleasant call, and while here, Mr. Dame caught two fine pickeral in the river just back of our office. *** Fred McFall of Cedar done business at the court house on Friday. Fred informs us that business is good in his town. *** Harry Hinshaw caught seven large Mackinaw trout in Carp Lake yesterday afternoon in two hours time. *** The steam barge Chipman took a full load of wood yesterday at Gill’s Pier, for C.A. Nelson.

Cause You Gotta Have

Among the artifacts are nautical equipment, a Manby mortar, forerunner to the Lyle gun, and a Fresnel lens from a lighthouse beacon. An entire room is devoted to a simulation of a pilot house of a Great Lakes ship, providing a panoramic view of the Manitou Passage. The boathouse is restored to the first decade of the 1900s. It has two surfboats, one of them an original build in the mid-1880s for a lifesaving station in Wisconsin. The other is a replica. Beebe-McLellan built especially for the museum. The boathouse also has a fully-equipped beach cart, and a variety of other items used in rescues. Tracks leading from the boat house toward the water aided in launching the surfboats.

5 YEARS AGO June 28, 2007 Northern Michigan sweet cherries will be available for the National Cherry Festival this year. And the harvest of tart cherries — a lot of tart cherries — will follow soon after. The state’s tart cherry production is forecast at 230 million pounds, an increase of nearly 21 percent from the 190 million pounds harvested last year. *** The first shovelfuls of dirt are being turned over for the joint Village of Northport-Leelanau Township sewer project. On June 21, bonds to provide upfront money for the $15 million project were issued to the State of Michigan at 1.625 percent interest. *** Why was the head of Leelanau County’s Building Inspections Department fired on June 4? A Freedom of Information Act request filed on June 11 by the Leelanau Enterprise led to the release last week of roughly half a ream of paperwork from county personnel files — but few answers. 10 YEARS AGO June 27, 2002 David Johnson’s “Miranda Ranch, Inc.” has received permission to counter-sue the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians and the Michigan Land Use Institute over their successful effort to block a proposed land exchange on the island between Miranda and the State of Michigan. The fight over the fate of South Fox Island lurched forward Monday in Circuit Court with Judge Thomas G. Power opining that the real issue — whether the Grand Traverse Band’s historic land claims on the island are valid — is being avoided by both sides. *** Those who had been complaining about the lack of “summer” weather better keep their mouths shut. We’ve got what we’ve been waiting for. Temperatures in Leelanau County have skyrocketed in the past week with the average high more than 20 degrees above the same period two weeks ago. ***

The Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station was retired from active service when, on a bright spring day in May 1944, Diz Dean put a padlock on the door and walked away from what in its heyday was headquarters for some of Michigan’s fabled “Heroes of the Storm.” Owned by the Coast Guard until its transfer to the General Services Administration in 1958, the station remained idle until 1971 when it served briefly as the visitor center for the newly-established Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Historic restoration in 1982 and 1983 returned the buildings and grounds to their 1931 appearance, except for the interior of the boathouse and the crew’s bedroom which were restored to the way they looked in the early 1900s. Exhibits and furnishings were installed, and the National Park Service re-opened the station as a maritime museum. It was officially dedicated on, appropriately, Coast Guard Day, 4 August 1984. The exhibits include displays on such shipwrecks as the freighter Francisco Morazan, which ran aground off South Manitou Island in 1960, and the steamer Rising Sun, wrecked off Pyramid Point in 1917.


crew left to go to the South Pacific to help land troops. In its final days, the station had a three-man crew. First Class Petty Officer James W. Fitzgerald was in charge. Others were Second Class Petty Officer-Machinist’s Mate Thomas G. (“Diz”) Dean and Second Class Petty Officer-Seaman Roy P. Burns. They did little more than meet the boat from South Manitou Island, relay phone calls, and maintain their required marksmanship with the sixteen guns that by then had been assigned to the station. “They kept shipping us ammunition like you wouldn’t believe,” recalled Dean.


600 to 700 miles. Also of continuing importance to the Manitou Passage are rescue boats from the Coast Guard station at Frankfort, which has responsibility up to North Manitou Island. To the north, there is a station at Charlevoix. After its move, the Sleeping Bear Point Coast Guard Station became essentially an “eyes and ears” operation, providing shore patrols and relaying communications while leaving rescues to a motorized boat stationed at South Manitou. During World War II, the station closed. In 1943, most of the station’s


Over the years, the need for lifesaving stations lessened. The number of Great Lakes cargo-carrying ships had reached a peak of about 1,700 in the mid-nineteenth century. As power replaced sail, there was less danger of vessels being driven upon the Lake Michigan shoreline. Radio, radar and other technological developments gave ships better means of avoiding danger. Radio beams helped guide ships through the Manitou Passage. Furthermore, the U.S.L.S.S. and its surf rescues evolved into the U.S. Coast Guard and its mission of search and rescue. “Adding power was the most dramatic change,” said Admiral Smith. Motors gave rescue boats greater range than those with only oars and sails. Later, airplanes gave the Coast Guard enormous range for search, and introduction of helicopters provided improved capability for search and rescue. The mostly shore-bound rescuers evolved into a wide-ranging air-sea force. In 1938, the Coast Guard stationed a detachment at the Traverse City Airport with one plane and crew. It was discontinued in World War II. In 1946, the Traverse City Coast guard Air Station was activated, with Willard Smith as its first commanding officer. By 1989, the station had 15 pilots and covered a territory that included all of Lake Superior and the northern half of lakes Michigan and Huron. Among its fleet were three HH-3F “Pelican” helicopters, with a top speed of 130 knots and a range of

A stranger dropped some kittens off in our Garden. They were so cute that we immediately fell in love with them. Each morning when we would leave our home, the kittens would walk in front of us, stop and lay at our feet. They would not move until we petted them and talked to them. Then they would jump up and run to the box we had prepared for them. They were not hungry or thirsty, they simply wanted attention. How like us. We can have everything in life that we could ever want — cars, homes, money, prestige, sound investments and a good income. But we still have the need for love. Everyone has a need for love and God has enough love for everyone. He has a lot of love to give. And not only that, all love comes from God and He never runs out. When we discover the love of God, and make Him the love of our lives, we can be assured that whenever we need His love, it will be there!

CODY POPE sits near gorillas at Bwindi Park, in Uganda. The 2001 Glen Lake grad spent several months tracking and observing the wild animals in 2007.

Ex-GL salutatorian has worldly knowledge By Corey L. Frost Enterprise intern

west side of Manhattan when he began working on his master’s degree. He’s remained in New York, but visits northern Michigan during holidays. He also spends time camping on North Manitou during summers. Leading a life immersed in travel isn’t an easy feat. Though he understands his fortunes, he knows anyone can obtain similar accomplishments. The proper work needs to be put in first. “Travel often and learn a new language,” Pope said. “Learn as many languages as you can. Get out, see the world and remember that Northern Michigan is a great place to visit.” Pope, who played in three sports at Glen Lake and was involved in the student council and newspaper, plans to travel to Mozambique soon to work with the Mareja Community Reserve in Quirimbas National Park, located in the Cabo Delgado province. The reserve focuses on various conservation efforts including invasive plant management, water conservation and infrastructure maintenance. They’ve also put forth efforts to stop illegal logging in the area. For four months he’ll take on a management role, working in the field to help cover the reserve’s rangers successes and failures as they make further efforts to stop logging, poaching and ivory hunting. “I’m excited to do field work again,” Pope said. “With the management position I’ll have at Mareja, I’ll be out in the field helping the rangers and providing coverage of their current activities. It’ll be good to physically be involved with the conservation efforts.”


Cody Pope isn’t a politician, nor does the Glen Lake grad have plans to run. But the 29-year-old knows all about the politics of Central Africa. Pope, who spent time in Uganda observing gorillas as an assistant field researcher, works in New York for a company that specializes in forecasting political and violent risks worldwide. “I focus on the Great Lakes Region of Central Africa, which consists of four countries — Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo,” said Pope, who works for Exclusive Analysis as a writer. “I could write a piece about a specific conflict or political event — such as an election, that could have an effect on business and investments.” Pope, Glen Lake’s co-salutatorian in 2001, started his new job in May. It was just a couple months after receiving his Master of International Affairs from Columbia University. The Farmington Hills native, whose family moved to Empire before his seventh grade, also had a dual major at the University of Michigan in anthropology and zoology and brain, behavior & cognitive sciences. He also minored in French and Francophone Studies. One of the most important aspects of his schooling was time he spent traveling. “I studied abroad twice in undergrad, spending time in Australia and France for a semester,” Pope said. “I’m very proud of all of my experiences traveling.” In 2007, Pope spent time in Ruhija, Uganda watching gorillas in Bwindi National Park. There, he helped maintain a long-term research database, compiling behavioral observations of the 16 wild animals. “I gained a better understanding of people, animals and the environment they share,” Pope said. “Conservation isn’t a simple one-way path. “There are multiple parties that have to be accounted for.” In 2009, Pope moved to the upper

POPE EARNED his Master of International Affairs in February, graduating from Columbia University in New York.

COLONISTS RETURN fire with British soldiers in this battle during the American Revolutionary War.

Teachers tab Thomas Jefferson as favorite signer By Eric Carlson Of The Enterprise staff

If anybody should have some well-formed opinions on the Declaration of Independence and the men who signed it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s those who have been deemed â&#x20AC;&#x153;highly qualifiedâ&#x20AC;? by the Michigan Department of Education to teach American history or government to our youth. A half-dozen such teachers representing Leelanau Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four public school districts responded to a request from the Enterprise to offer their thoughts on the declaration and its signers. A solid majority of the listed Thomas RYAN DEFOUR teachers Jefferson as their â&#x20AC;&#x153;favoriteâ&#x20AC;? signer of the Declaration of Independence. But John Hancock, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and even Josiah Bartlett received honorable mentions. Teacher Ryan DeFour of Leland acknowledged that picking Jefferson as his favorite might not be the most original choice. But Jefferson â&#x20AC;&#x153;did the majority of the writing of the document and his views on independence were bold and consistent,â&#x20AC;? DeFour said. Jeffersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boldness and consistency are the traits DeFour said he admires most, not only in Jefferson but in all the signers of the declaration. Teacher Keven Cross of Suttons Bay had a slightly different take on the question, and said John Adams was his favorite signer. KEVEN CROSS â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me, Adams truly walked the walk, so to speak, of what the new country was to stand for when he volunteered to defend the British soldiers who were jailed for their actions during the Boston Massacre,â&#x20AC;? Cross said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that Adams stood up for the soldiers

Cross said. Fellow Suttons Bay teacher Doug Periard sided with the majority, however, and picked Jefferson because of his ability to take the ideals of the

Enlightenment Era to fruition. Periard described Franklin as â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly a Renaissance man.â&#x20AC;? Teacher Kris Herman of Glen Lake also favored Jefferson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always been fascinated by Jefferson and the political journey that he took,â&#x20AC;? Herman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He started as an Enlightenment thinker who strongly believed in the Natural Rights ideals of John Locke, played a major role in the Declaration of Independence, became an DOUG PERIARD ardent Anti-Federalist who was completely against big government, and then didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really see a reason to reverse some of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;big governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; policies of the Federalists once he took office,â&#x20AC;? Herman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of other people would probably say Franklin, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting, too, but not like Jefferson,â&#x20AC;? Herman KRIS HERMAN said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also thought it was pretty cool that President Bartlett on the West Wing (television show) was written as a descendant of Josiah Bartlett, another signer of the declaration,â&#x20AC;? Herman added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the thing that I admire most about the signers,â&#x20AC;? Herman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;was just their courage to actually go KEVIN through with it.â&#x20AC;? SKARNULIS Northport teacher Kevin Skarnulis said he had two â&#x20AC;&#x153;favorite signersâ&#x20AC;? of the Declaration of Independence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; John Adams and Benjamin Franklin. Adams had a â&#x20AC;&#x153;steady, relentless, and logical approach to the challenges and crises,â&#x20AC;? Skarnulis (Concluded on Page 4)

Continued from Page 3 said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also admire his tendency to jump into an endeavor with both feet, without equivocation, once he made an educated decision. He brought people together in compromise when it mattered most.â&#x20AC;? As for Franklin, Skarnulis said, he was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;renaissance man whose unquenchable curiosity exemplified what it means to be a lifelong learner.â&#x20AC;? Skarnulis said Franklinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s autobiography is one of his favorite books. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also admire his wit and ability to take care of business while still enjoying life to the fullest,â&#x20AC;? Skarnulis said of Franklin. Leland teacher Ed Wodek said that he, too, likes Jefferson, but John Hancock deserves to be noted for his character traits.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You see, Jefferson was indeed the brains behind the document, taking the basic premise from John Locke,â&#x20AC;? Wodek said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which was basically dissolving a faulty government and starting anew.â&#x20AC;? But, for Wodek, something else distinguished Hancock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;John Hancock truly made a statement of his belief about the King and the British Parliament by his signature â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so much larger than the rest to make sure the King could see it without his glasses,â&#x20AC;? Wodek said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ED WODEK F a c e b o o k moment!â&#x20AC;? Skarnulis summed up his thoughts by noting that the conviction, courage and audacity of the signers of the Declaration of Independence are what set them apart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People in their position who failed would have been executed for treason,â&#x20AC;? Skarnulis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were willing to boldly stand up for their beliefs and sense of right and wrong. They also led with their actions as much as their words. Both traits are invaluable and in perpetual short supply.â&#x20AC;?

nesses and clients. Local townships, villages and cities can’t help. The act specifically overrides ordinances, even those that govern noise. The act does not provide setbacks from property lines — meaning someone could light off a “sparkling wheel” within feet of a neighbor’s house — and does not deal with where the debris from an aerial display may land. The law, however, did find space to set a 6 percent tax on the sale of fireworks and place monies collected in a “fireworks safety fund” for dispursement to local units of governments. The first $1 million collected will be used “defray inspection costs with the enforcement of this act.” Local fire departments could receive grants for training. Leelanau County Emergency Services Director Tom Skowronski attended an information conference May 7 in Gaylord sponsored by the Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs department. The conference was attended by an assortment of law enforcement officials and fire chiefs in northern Michigan. Most in attendance were unhappy with aspects of the new law, he said, although Leelanau County will not follow the path that some jurisdictions may follow. Skowronski said some dispatchers in other jurisdictions may tell residents complaining about fireworks to “call their Legislator.” “That’s no way to handle it,” Skowronski said. “What we anticipate

seeing is neighbors calling because people will be shooting them off all hours of the night. As long as people use common sense, and it’s just after dark, I don’t think you’ll see many issues.” The state law provides for fines up to $1,000 for those in violation, and placed some activities off limits. They include: • Fireworks may not be lit on public property unless authorized. • Still off limits are “m-80’s” and “cherry bombs.” • They may not be sold to a minor. • And the person igniting fireworks may not be smoking or intoxicated. Where to buy this expanded array of explosives? When this article was written, no Enterprise staff members had seen fireworks for sale in Leelanau County. Gus O’Brien, owner of Hansen Foods in Suttons Bay, said he opted not to apply for a license to sell the expanded assortment of fireworks now legal in Michigan. The store is, however, carrying the types of fireworks it sold in previous years. An inside display of fireworks was available at Meijer, but store director John Spaulding said the franchise was not expanding its offerings of exploding devices to take advantage of the new law. As in past years, the store has given permission to a local church to use a portion of the Meijer parking lot to sell fireworks as a fundraiser. Spaulding said the vendor representing the church may expand its inventory.

Three fireworks events planned in county Looking for some big-time boombooms? Leelanau County can supply, as three firework events are being planned in and around Leelanau County. First to start off the holiday blasts is Leland, where fireworks will be shot off at Hancock Field on Tuesday. A patriotic song and hymn fest will start activities at 8 p.m. at the Village Green in Leland. Patriotic songs, Christian hymns, folk songs, patriotic recitations and prayers for the nation will be on tap. The Back Room Gang from Traverse City will perform. After the fest activity will move to Hancock Field, which usually fills with fireworks viewers toting portable chairs, blankets and other Fourth of July amenities. North Lake Leelanau will likely also fill — with boats. It’s become a popular venue for viewing

after the display was moved inland from the Leland Harbor. The Village of Northport will host revelers along its waterfront on the actual date of the holiday. A concert by the Village Voices and Northport Community Band will begin at 7 p.m. K Jones and the Benzie Playboys will offer zydeco, cajun and Creole music until dusk, followed by the village’s fireworks display. Fireworks will also be shot over West Grand Traverse Bay on the evening of the Fourth of July, courtesy of a non-profit group that is raising money to ensure that the Fourth is always celebrated with fireworks in Traverse City. The Traverse City Boom-Boom Club is planning to raise $45,000 to put on a half-hour display, which will be 10 minutes longer than previous years.

Donors may attend a party and enjoy special seating in the Traverse City Open Space. The display will also be enjoyed by spectators in Greilickville, who are expected to fill the Elmwood Township park and marina. The Boom-Boom Club was organized by former National Cherry Festival executive director Tim Hinkley. Trevor Tkach, who followed Hinkley as executive director, said the cherry festival is in full support of the non-profit’s efforts. “We’ve been helpful as best as we can be, but at the end of the day they’re doing the heavy lifting,” said Tkach.

THE CHERRY Bomb, left, and M-80 have been banned by federal law since 1966 because of the large amounts of explosive composition they contain.

Tammy Tarsa, RN, BSN Owner and Manager


A new law governing fireworks is clear about which explosives are legal, and which ones aren’t. Determining the difference from a patrol car is another matter. County sheriff’s officers and emergency service personnel have sorted through a fireworks control act signed in 2011 by the state Legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Snyder. They don’t necessarily like what they found, as they will be handing complaints when bigger and louder fireworks are set off — legally — in Leelanau County. They expect noise and dangerous situations to escalate and peak over the Fourth of July holiday. They’re hoping any problems encountered will come and go with the holiday. “Do I like it?” asked county undersheriff Scott Wooters. “Do my dogs like it? No. But it’s usually a once-a year thing.” He and county detective Clint Kerr expect that deputies will be of little help in handling most complaints, as the new law makes legal a new barrage of fireworks that prevously could only be purchased and lit in other states. The law states that people who are sober may light off an extended list of fireworks. But telling if someone is intoxicated from afar is just about impossible. “How are you going to know if they are sober or not?” Wooters continued. “The biggest thing we’re going to ask for is tolerance, and respect for the enjoyment of participants. I’m sure we’ll get a lot of calls, and go to doors, and do the best we can.” Kerr, too, was concerned about handling what may be legitimate complaints about safety. “We hope the people will be safe with the opportunity to use a wide variety of fireworks,” he said. “(Dispatch) will let us know if we get a complaint, but it’s somewhat of an unenforceable situation.” The Michigan Fireworks Safety Act, ironically, offers little guidance for regulating ignition of a wider array of fireworks that are now legal. It instead spends most of its pages laying out the licensing procedure for companies vying to sell fireworks and the nowlegal transactions between those busi-

MIKE DEPUY, a Glen Lake parent, spent part of Father’s Day working on the school float, which will be in National Cherry Festival parades.

Handmade floats all for the love of a parade Festival “princess” Emma DePuy and a 19-year member of the National Cherry Festival (NCF) staff. DePuy is the office manager for the NCF and works in event planning — including the royalty programs, air show and parades. “This year, when the school called and said that Emma was picked, I decided I’d have to step back from the royalty and the parades,” she said. To be sure each school is on a level playing field, the NCF gives them $150. Then they are responsible for securing donations of $250. Glen Lake’s Parent-Teacher organization also contributed $150. The theme of this year’s parade is “America the Beautiful”, based loosely on Good Morning America’s designation of the Sleeping Bear Dunes as the Most Beautiful Place in the country. Each participating school choses a state on which to base its float. Glen Lake chose Hawaii. Depuy and Lisa Davis, mother of prince Alexander Davis, came up with a design for the float, the centerpiece of which is a volcano. Construction was up to the dads. “Some of the other kids’ dads are in

BILL ROBINSON Bill Robinson grew up in Elmwood Township and remembers his mother and his four siblings picking cherries at Frank Kroupa’s farm off Lincoln Road. It was the mid-1960s. “She was 5-foot-1, probably weighed 100 lbs.. and could pick as much as a migrant family of eight,” Robinson said. He and his brother are constructing a float for the NCF as a tribute to his mother, Marcelle Robinson, who holds the unofficial county cherry picking record — 60 lugs in one day. The Robinsons started the cherry

“They help where they can, but they pretty much stick to cleaning up. After all, how much work can you get out of a 7-year-old?,” she said. The float was scheduled to be completed last weekend as DePuy and the other parents consider whether the finish product reflects what they had in mind and perhaps more importantly, whether it’s something of which the school can be proud. “We probably have 22 hours total into it,” DePuy said. “It’s not the kind of thing you can whip out in a day … But if you have a plan, it doesn’t take that long to execute. It’s been a lot of fun.”

Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people in Leelanau County will make a parade part of their July 4 plans next week. Glen Arbor is known for its “anything goes” parade and the Polka Parade in Cedar follows suit. Leland’s annual celebration is a little more formal and has the greatest number of “real” floats. The problem is, not everyone has the time it takes to put ideas on paper and do what’s necessary to come up with something they’d be proud to drive down main street. We talked with a Leelanau County native who is putting a float together as a tribute to his mother for the National Cherry Festival. We also talked with a mother, who along with other parents, are preparing a float to represent their childrens’ school in the Traverse City festivities. Here’s some insight into what goes into constructing a float. MANDY DEPUY “I’m usually in on the planning, not the hands-on type of stuff,” said Mandy DePuy, mother of Glen Lake’s Cherry

the building industry and have the expertise to get it done,” DePuy said. The group has met each Sunday since June 3, building the float in a friend’s barn off M-72 in Solon Township. The first Sunday was spent framing in the float platform on a trailer. June 10, the mothers worked on the papier mache volcano. Father’s Day was spent painting the background and the volcano — which had had a week to dry— and putting on the finishing touches, including huge (artificial) tropical flowers. All this with a group of excitable 7-year-olds to help.

Continued from Page 6 season by getting out in the orchard by 7 a.m., and five minutes earlier for every day thereafter. And she wasn’t afraid of heights, standing on top of a peek-a-boo, 7-foot ladder to get to a fruit-covered limb. “By the end of the five or six weeks, it became a very long day in the orchard,” he said. “She taught me how to work.” To give the public an idea of the enormity of the 60-lug record, Robinson contacted Bruce Price in Lake Leelanau for buckets and lugs. “I wanted to get 120 buckets, because each lug takes two buckets of fruit to fill,” Robinson said. “But I couldn’t find enough.” In addition to the cherry equipment, the tribute to “ Mrs. Robinson” will include banners from Britten Media purchased by Bill and an enlarged copy of an article about her record which appeared in the Leelanau Enterprise. Robinson is also getting help from his daughter, who was involved creatively with Fortune 500 companies. “My mom’s grandchildren and great-grandchild will be on the float wearing red and white,” he said. If that’s not enough detail to identify Robinson’s float, listen carefully. “Simon and Garfunkel’s Mrs. Robinson will be playing over the loudspeaker.”

PARADING the Glen Arbor

By Mike Spencer Of The Enterprise staff


BOONE DOGGIES and Boone Docks floats roll through Glen Arbor’s parade last year.

It may be an election year, but don’t expect politicians to be first in line at the Glen Arbor Anything Goes Fourth of July Parade. Old cars and regular day folks have always been a high priority of parade founder Stanley Brubaker. “It’s a real casual parade and it’s always been that way,” said the 84-year-old Brubaker, who never thought the neighborhood parade he started in 1963 would still be going on or would expand to five miles at one time and include hundreds of people. Brubaker, who said his wife Jo gets credit for the parade’s unique name, says even though it’s an election year, politicians will not get preferential treatment. “Politicians may say we have to be up front, but not ahead of the old cars,” Brubaker said. “They’ll just have to go the end of the line like

everybody else. “This is not a parade to show off politicians ... everybody is the show.” Brubaker started the parade at his home off W. Sleeping Bear Drive in Glen Haven shortly after he moved north in the early 1960s. “We came up from Birmingham and we had parades there,” he said. “I figured we should have one here.” In the early parades, some of the kids were lifted up into a front-end loader and carried down the parade route. “They wouldn’t let us do that today,” Brubaker noted. When old cars were added to the parade, they were put in front and have stayed there. “We’re talking pre-World War II automobiles ... those that don’t have more driven fans or radiators and run on a crankshaft,” Brubaker said. “And we always have some military vehicles.” Participants would also use bed sheets and sign Happy Birthday or other exotic slogans, Brubaker said. “We were a little more casual in those days,” said Brubaker, who rides the entire course in a yellow moped and keeps tabs on stragglers. Brubaker, who was chairman of the Glen Arbor planning and zoning commission in the 1980s, said he was told back then not to change a thing with the parade. “We were told that we’ve got something here in a small country town that attracts tourists from all over the nation,” Brubaker said. “They want to see something different.” Over the years the parade course has gone from a 1/2-mile course from the neighborhood to the Maritime Museum in Glen Haven and back to starting at Glen Haven and going all the way to the Homestead about five miles away. The route expansion to the Homestead was short-lived, Brubaker said. “They didn’t seem to appreciate a lot of excitement and racket,” he recalled. Now it runs from Glen Haven through the village of Glen Arbor, about three miles and lasts about an hour. The parade, which began with a half dozen families and 20 participants mostly on bicycles, now draws hundreds of participants and vehicles. The automobiles stage in Glen Haven, near the corner of M-109 and M-209, starting about 10 a.m. for the noon start there. People that walk the route gather about 11 a.m. at the First Church of Christ Scientist parking lot off Harbor Highway, just west of the village of Glen Arbor. Volunteer Todd Stachnik coordinates the walkers lineup. When the automobiles reach the church parking lot, the walkers are dispersed intermittently. “It takes about 15 minutes to reach the church and then it’s very slow and as the walkers merge,” Brubaker said. “But it’s still a great time and a lot of fun. “And it’s a great way to celebrate.” The Glen Arbor Chamber of Commerce also provides volunteers to sweep the streets of candy thrown by parade entries. “It helps keep the kids from dashing out,” Brubaker said. New this year will be the showing off of the $275,000 Glen Lake Fire Department rescue/fire boat. “ ... unless there is rescue call,” Brubaker said. There is no pre-registration of floats and there are no awards in this parade. “No nothing ... just come and have a good time,” Brubaker said. “It’s truly unorganized and you’ll get a laugh out of it.”

The Leland Fourth of July Parade will look more like a “Snap-Shot of Leelanau.” That’s because this year’s theme is just that. “Over the years, there’s been some good years and some bad,” said Lynn Telgard, parade organizer and a member of the Leland Improvement Association which sponsors the event. “Weather has a lot to do with it and so does whether it’s an election year.” The 3 p.m. parade begins at Christmas Tree Corner on Main Street and ends six blocks later at the Leland Village Green. “It’s pretty simple,” Telgard said. “And it’s very short.” The Leland parade features fun floats by businesses, antique cars and fire trucks, and a kid’s bike parade. “It’s small and silly, but it’s a great event for all of the tourists,” Telgard said. “And generations upon generations talk about it. Although the registration deadline has passed, Telgard said no one who wants to participate will be turned away. “We don’t turn anyone away,” Telgard said. “Some people will come up and say they missed the deadline. “But it’s OK.” Telgard said the pre-registration helps get a handle on participants. “Some years we’ve had 120 entries and some maybe only 60,” Telgard said. With tourists visiting up north for possibly two consecutive weekends, Telgard is hoping for a big turnout. Although the parade doesn’t begin until late afternoon, parade watchers have picked their seats on Main Street as early as 9 a.m. The best floats in eight different categories will receive awards. Telgard, who owns the Bluebird Restuarant and got the volunteer coordinator’s job by default, said anyone interested in taking over the organizing efforts should contact her. “Finding someone to do the organizing has been a little tough,” Telgard said. “I know that if I didn’t do it, it would fall by the wayside. “I would love to find somebody to take it over. All that’s needed is someone with a little computer savvy.”

CLASSIC BOATS were aplenty in last year’s Leland Fourth of July boat parade.

Parades to float your boats in Leland and Glen Arbor By Patti Brandt Of The Enterprise staff

For an eyeful of some classic beach beauties look no further than the annual boat parade on Lake Leelanau. Parade participants — curvy wooden charmers or vintage fiberglass lookers — line up at Nedow’s Bay near the Leland Yacht Club, with the parade starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 7. The boats cruise a leisurely loop around the lake, taking about an hour. Jim Wenstrup, who has been organizing the boat parade for the last couple of years, owns a 1959 Century Resorter and leads the parade of about 20-25 boats. Big crowds gather on the docks, sometimes cheering, as the boats play follow-the-leader. On Glen Lake, the boat parade begins at about 4 p.m. on the Fourth of July, following the regular parade in Glen Arbor. And with about 50 boats, it lasts about an hour, said Molly Connolly, marketing director for the Glen Lake Chamber of Commerce. The parade has been going on for-

mally for at least a decade, Connolly said, and has really grown. “It’s becoming a big thing here in Glen Arbor,” she said. “It’s just like the Glen Arbor parade, except you’re on the water.” Anybody can be in the parade, it doesn’t cost anything, and participants don’t even have to decorate their boats. And there’s a party and cookout afterwards for the boaters, she said. “It’s pretty neat,” Connolly said. “You’re not really parading to anyone. There’s no crowd watching. It’s just a good time.” The Lake Leenanau boat parade has been going on for about 10 years, Wenstrup said, having been started by John Stanley. It was expanded three years ago to include classic fiberglass boats in addition to the older wooden boats. With bright color combinations and flared back ends like the cars from the 50s would have had, the older fiberglass boats are a little more stylish and a little less cookie-cutter, he said. Wooden boats, manufactured by companies like Chris Craft, Century

and Gar Wood, aren’t made any more, said Jim Wenstrup, And that’s part of their allure. “Most of the wooden boats on Lake Leelanau have been here since they were new 50 and 60 years ago,” Wenstrup said. “Most are owned by the same families and they’ve been passed down through the generations.” Most are collectors items. “There’s a nostalgia that this was my grandfather’s boat and now my family is enjoying it,” he said. Wenstrup, who lives in Cincinnati, is a part-time Lake Leelanau resident. His family has been summering on the lake for 74 years, having bought the cabin he still uses in the 1930s. He is the second owner of his Resorter, which was previously owned by a Lake Leelanau resident and has been on the lake since it was brand new. Wooden boats need a lot more care, said Wenstrup. who puts a fresh coat of varnish and paint on his every year. “They need to have a little loving care every year,” he said.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Fourth of July, a time of year traditionally known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amateur Weekâ&#x20AC;? for boaters. And with alcohol flowing freely at many cookouts, parties and events, many a marine officer cringes when boaters take to the lakes. Alcohol and boats donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mix, with alcohol being one of the biggest factors in boating accidents, said Charlie Belanger, marine commander for the Leelanau County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to be clear-headed and operate slowly enough, in a reasonable and prudent manner,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. Deputy Wayne Kalchik says no one has died due to a boating accident in the 17 years that he has been with the marine division. Still, over the years several accidents have revolved around the use of alcohol. And drunken driving on the water is just as illegal as it is on the road, Kalchik said, with all of the same laws applying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to make sure people utilize a designated driver just as they would on the road,â&#x20AC;? Kalchik said. One of the biggest reasons for people getting hurt on lakes on the holiday weekend is the number of boats in the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lakes get pretty congested,â&#x20AC;? Kalchik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of traffic out there.â&#x20AC;? He reminds everyone to operate their boats in a safe manner by showing respect for other boaters and giving swimmers and dock areas plenty of room. Boaters should also make sure they have all the required safety gear on board, especially life jackets. While only children less than six years of age are required to wear their jackets, Kalchik encourages everyone to wear one, as most drowning deaths are from capsized boats or people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve fallen off a boat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we like to see people wearing their life jackets,â&#x20AC;? Kalchik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll end up in the water.â&#x20AC;? Officers get calls almost on a daily basis for a boat adrift, a reckless boat, a boat that is too noisy, or a boat that is going too fast. But Belanger also remembers the plane that went down in

BOATING REGS Some boaters, depending on how old they are and when they were born, may need a boater safety certificate to operate a boat or personal watercraft. Here are the rules: â&#x20AC;˘ Young people aged 12-15 may operate a boat with a motor of 6 hp or more only if they have a Boater Safety certificate or are accompanied by a person at least l6 years old. â&#x20AC;˘ Youths less than 14 may not operate a personal watercraft. â&#x20AC;˘ Youths who are 14-15 years old may operate a personal watercraft only when accompanied by or operating within 100 feet of a parent or guardian. â&#x20AC;˘ Adults who were born after Dec. 31, 1978 must have a boater safety certificate to operate a personal watercraft. Lake Michigan near the Manitou islands, killing six people. It was the middle of the night and if officers hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t known the ins and outs of the waterways near the islands, it could have been much more serious, he said. It is for that reason that officers patrol the lakes on a daily basis, getting familiar with every area under their watch, including the Manitou and Fox islands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest reason for boating mishaps is failure to have a lookout,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no center line, there is no edge of the road. Boats are all over the water. They have to watch where they are going all the time.â&#x20AC;? The Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marine division deputies work every weekend, patrolling Lake Leelanau, Little Traverse Lake, and Glen, Lime and Cedar lakes, as well as Lake Michigan and the Grand Traverse Bay. The division has five boats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; three are kept at Glen Lake, Lake Leelanau and at the bay; the other two are trailered and ready to respond to emergencies on other waters. A marine officer for 40 years, Belanger also teaches a boater safety class that is required for teens aged 12 to 15 who will be operating a boat with a 6 horsepower or greater engine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remind these kids that if you are going 30 miles per hour you are going 44 feet per second,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So you

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much time to avoid an accident.â&#x20AC;? About 100 youths each year go through the class, which is also required to operate a personal watercraft. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year there are a hundred more kids in our county who have the knowledge to safely operate a boat,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. In all there are less than a dozen boating accidents per year, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are safer for the most part now than they used to be. As the years have gone by more and more people have taken these boating classes,â&#x20AC;? Belanger said. Adults do not need a boater safety certificate to operate a boat, but Kalchik said the class is good for all boaters. Plus, he said, those who have taken it may qualify for a discount on their boaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insurance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We encourage anyone who is interested in becoming a safer boater to take the class,â&#x20AC;? Kalchik said. Adults do need a certificate if they will be operating a personal watercraft and were born after Dec. 31, 1978. Tristan Peabody, 15, of Leland, recently took the Leelanau County boating safety class in the hopes that his parents will buy him a personal watercraft. He liked the fact that the class was taught by a seasoned marine officer who told students actual stories about things that have gone wrong on the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It teaches you to be more cautious,â&#x20AC;? Peabody said. Just the day before, Peabody and 15-year-old Kyle Cavanaugh of Indiana, who also took the class, watched a friend get his hand stuck between two boats. The friend had to go to the hospital, they said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It actually can happen,â&#x20AC;? Cavanaugh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He should have taken this class.â&#x20AC;? *** Free boating safety classes are offered through the Leelanau County Law Enforcement Center for boaters who will be at least 12 years old by the end of the boating season. Classes will be held on the following dates: â&#x20AC;˘ July 9, 10, 11 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Glen Lake Yacht Club â&#x20AC;˘ July 23, 24, 25 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Northport fire hall â&#x20AC;˘ Aug. 6, 7, 8 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Leelanau County Law Enforcement Center.

BETTY WEAVER of Glen Arbor, in the Uncle Sam outfit, leads the Kazoo Marching Band in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fourth of July Anything Goes Parade.

There are places where donning red, white and blue appears patriotic as in parades like those held next week in conjunction with the Fourth of July. And there are places where you display the red, white and blue that some might deem inappropriate or unpatriotic, like underwear. But in all cases, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a freedom afforded every American. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has a right to wear red, white and blue anytime in any place,â&#x20AC;? said Glen Arborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Betty Weaver, who appears very flag-like at the annual Glen Arbor Anything Goes Parade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an American right.â&#x20AC;? Even in the case of a Leelanau County high school student who was chewed out for being unpatriotic in some eyes for his red, white and blue underwear in the last decade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the particulars in that situation, but every person has a right to wear the red, white and blue, even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their underwear,â&#x20AC;? said Weaver, the former Michigan chief justice and Leelanau County probate judge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be careful who I was showing it to.â&#x20AC;? The opinion is held by others in authority. Suttons Bay attorney Dean Robb, who is active in the American Civil Liberties

TODD STACHNIK, staging coordinator at the First Church of Christ Scientist parking lot, poses with one his faves Betty Weaver before the start of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parade.

Union, said he whole-heartedly supports the freedom to wear whatever item in red, white and blue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are sort of our patriotic colors,â&#x20AC;? said Robb, who knows judicial friends who adorn themselves in the Uncle Sam suit and hat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I will defend their right to wear those colors anywhere at anytime.â&#x20AC;? Leelanau County Undersheriff Scott Wooters said law enforcement officials are not involved in the ethics of wearing the red, white and blue. But personally he also supports that right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I salute the demonstration of being patriotic,â&#x20AC;? Wooters said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wear the colors at events when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m off-duty because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not interested in drawing any attention to myself.â&#x20AC;? Wooters said the Glen Arbor parade is a great example of patriotism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me Glen Arbor demonstrates faith in the country on the Fourth of July with a sea of red, white and blue,â&#x20AC;? he said. Weaver is front and center about her love of the red, white and blue as the leader of the Glen Arbor Kazoo Corps marching band. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the kazoo in the mouth and the big hat and it is just lots of fun,â&#x20AC;? said Weaver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love a parade and I love to have a good time in a nice way.â&#x20AC;? And she is adamant that wearing the colors is a good thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wearing red, white and blue are three

colors that make people feel good as a rule,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s associated with patriotism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know of any issues with it. I see a lot of good.â&#x20AC;? Weaver said wearing red, white and blue is similar to folks who wear their school colors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At sporting events you see one group with maize and blue and another in green and white showing off their colors,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Sousa’s “Northern Pines” turned out to be the last march he composed. He died on March 6, l932, following a rehearsal at Reading, Pennsylvania. Appropriately enough, the last piece he conducted was the “Stars and Stripes Forever.” * * * Although he didn’t write it, University of Michigan fans and alumni might find it interesting to know that “The Victors” was considered by Sousa to be “the greatest college fight song ever written.” Radio was “the thing” throughout the 1930s and the Enterprise would often print schedules of concerts, their content, and news of other broadcasts. Advertisements also appeared for radio sets which apparently sold well despite the fact they were relatively quite expensive (one sees a similar pattern for TV sets following World War II). There was no local radio station, as has been previously related, in what was then a rather lightly populated area, and reception, particularly in the daytime, could be poor Out East, a radio enthusiast saw the “gap” in the national network of stations and decided there was a future in Northern Michigan. Les Beiderman, with the assistance of his brother and several Philadelphia friends, established the area’s first fulltime radio station at Traverse City. WTCM took to the air early in 1941 and now there would be local music, news and sports, too. A few decades later, Interlochen Center for the Arts (so had the “Music Camp” grown) would establish its own FM radio station. On weekends Sousa marches are often requested – and played. John Philip Sousa understood well how people could be stirred and motivated by music, a fact not always appreciated by historians, who, all too frequently, concentrate on politics and give the fine arts short shrift. Eighty years have now elapsed since Sousa passed on, but his patriotic music is still as vibrant and stirring as when he first composed it.


Patriotic music. This is but one of the ways in which Americans observe the Fourth of July. In the days before radio and television, even the smallest of villages often had its own band. These weren’t high school bands, which came later, but were composed of community members of all ages. There were also numerous “Boys’ Bands” around the Midwest. One of these was the Boys’ Band of Wellington, Kan., formed in 1900. “School bands and orchestras were unheard of in those days,” Norma Lee Browning has written, relating that two brothers, Harry and Joseph Maddy, were among the first to join the Wellington Band. Fewer than thirty years later, Joe Maddy and a few others had established a camp for another generation of young musicians in the pines of Northern Michigan at Interlochen. It would become world famous. Interlochen, never to become more than a village, is said to have been so named because of its location between two lakes. But it was also “interlocked” by two rail lines. One, the Pere Marquette, ran east, and then north, to Traverse City. The other, the Manistee and Northeastern, ran north, looping into Leelanau County before reaching Traverse City. America’s immortal “March King,” John Philip Sousa, doubtless wrote more stirring patriotic music than anyone. He is perhaps best known for the rousing “Stars and Stripes Forever,” but he also wrote the Washington Post March, Semper Fidelis, El Capitan and — literally — scores of others. Finally, he wrote the “Northern Pines March,” inspired, late in his life, by visits to northern Michigan that included Leland. Sousa, who has been called the “Pied Piper of Patriotism,” was once quoted as saying that he thought a good march should “make goose pimples chase each other up and down your spine.”

With all this emphasis on patriotism, it is perhaps appropriate that Sousa was born in Washington, D.C. His father was a member of the Marine Corps Band and John Philip not only walked in his father’s footsteps, but out-strode him. Sousa led the Marine Corps Band for 12 years (1880-92) and was musical director of the U.S. Army during the Spanish-American War. During World War I, he formed bands at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station in Illinois. The Bandmaster/composer also toured extensively with his own band and made several trips to Europe to perform there. The National Music Camp was in its infancy when Sousa, in his later years, paid a few visits and took the podium at the new “Bowl.” It was here, on June 26, 1931, that the Northern Pines March (No. 136) was first publicly played and the event was broadcast. The later was no mean feat, as there was no radio station up here in the “Northwoods.” The Enterprise detailed some of the technical problems that were encountered in accomplishing this. There were, of course, no satellites then to relay transmissions. The newspaper went on to report that before he left the area, Sousa had been the guest, at Leland, of Karl Detzer and his wife. At that time, Detzer was a rather well-known author of light fiction and his work could be found, periodically, in the Leelanau Enterprise. Some years later, Detzer and his wife, Clarice, bought the newspaper, thinking it would be interesting and relaxing. He later wrote that “our only motive was to find a pleasant, easy occupation for our declining years, an interesting hobby.” It proved to be otherwise. “Our first issue, incidentally,” Detzer added, “we finally got out three days late, on a Saturday, with half the people in town trying to help.” Within five years (1948-53), the “hobby” was over and the Enterprise, once again, had new owners.

Treating ovarian cancer with the drug bevacizumab (Avastin) delays the disease and may also improve survival, show the results of an international clinical trial. The findings, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, report that the drug halted the cancer's return for two months overall. However, for women with the highest risk of contracting the disease, the delay was five to six months and in this group, the findings also indicated a strong trend to improved overall survival. *** Aspirin taken within five days of cardiac surgery is associated with a significant decrease in the risk of major postoperative complications, including renal failure, a lengthy intensive care unit stay and even early death (30-day mortality), according to a study in the journal Annals of Surgery. *** Rituximab, (trade names Rituxan and MabThera), a monoclonal antibody for human CD20, was shown to be safe in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) who had an incomplete response to the standard ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) therapy, also known as Ursodiol, in a study reported on in Hepatology. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), PBC—an autoimmune liver disease characterized by inflammation of the bile ducts that ultimately causes bile to build up and damage the liver—typically occurs between the ages of 40 and 60, primarily affecting women. Currently, the standard therapy for PBC is UDCA or liver transplantation in patients who have progressed to end-stage liver disease. However, previous studies have shown that UDCA may be ineffective in up to 40% of PBC patients and 10% could require transplantation or die from the disease. *** Brought to you as a public service by

(70 PU


CHARLES GODBOUT of Empire believes the biggest threat to our representative democracy is the ability of the extremely wealthy to have undue influence over the election process.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really need to have a national discussion about what the appropriate role of government is,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What should government do because it is better, more efficient, or effective at or what must government do because the private sector is unwilling or unable to do it, and what government must do because it is prescribed in the Constitution and laws passed by our representative government.â&#x20AC;? Godbout suggested that equal access to health care is a right for all citizens which the private sector has not been able to deliver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If equal access is a right, evolving from a citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inalienable rights to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;life, liberty and the pursuit of happinessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; then it is our and governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility to insure that equal access is available to all our citizens,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How we execute this responsibility may be open to discussion but whether we should or should not execute the responsibility is not.â&#x20AC;? Jim Fuscaldo of Centerville Township is a retired corporate attorney with a particular interest in history and Constitutional law. He explained that our founding fathersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; belief system was based on the theories of John Locke, an English philosopher, who discussed natural rights in his work, identifying them as being â&#x20AC;&#x153;life, liberty, and estate (property).â&#x20AC;? Locke believed

that such fundamental rights come from God â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not a king. German philosopher Georg Hegel, considered by many to have originated â&#x20AC;&#x153;progressiveâ&#x20AC;? thought, wrote that society is in a constant state of evolution and should be able to adapt laws to meet the needs of society. As German immigrants moved to the United States, the progressive movement took hold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Constitution was a rigid document and was interpreted in such a way to allow those governing to meet the needs of society at that time in history,â&#x20AC;? Fuscaldo said. Loose interpretation of the Constitution is slowing eating away at individual rights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Progressive government gives the people the right to do things explicitly prohibited by the Constitution,â&#x20AC;? Fuscaldo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like going back to the days prior to the Revolution. But instead of a monarch, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a president and a super legislature.â&#x20AC;? Fuscaldo said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a constant erosion of stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights as they look to the federal government for assistance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s federal money involved there are always strings attached,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;States are so dependent on the government to bail them out that they are willing to give up those rights.â&#x20AC;?

White and his wife, Susanna, came on the Mayflower in 1620 with a son. Resolved; Susanna gave birth to son, Peregrine, while the Mayflower was still anchored off the top of Cape Cod waiting for the Pilgrims to discover a place to build their colony. White died that first winter, on the same day as three other passengers. His wife Susanna remarried to Edward Winslow a few months later, being the first marriage to occur in Plymouth.

The Boston Tea Party in 1773 was rooted in growing friction over Parliamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to tax colonists who were not represented in the government. That act, almost 239 years ago, and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Intolerable Actsâ&#x20AC;? put in place by the British in retaliation, set the stage for the American Revolution and the rights established through the War of Independence. Just like the colonists and Tories who differed in their positions on the role of government in the country, there are different takes on these rights and what the Constitution means today. It is because of the efforts of our forefathers that Americans enjoy many rights secured through ratification of the Bill of Rights in December 1791 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; chief among them, freedom of expression. We spoke with two county men who often exercised their freedom of speech. Charles Godbout of Empire is treasurer of the Leelanau County Democratic Party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tea Party was a response to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;taxation without representation,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?said Godbout, adding that this directly resulted in our representative form of government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bicameral format of Senate and House of Representatives, with one man, one vote.â&#x20AC;? Godbout said that the biggest threat to our representative democracy is the ability of the extremely wealthy to have undue influence over the election process. Because of this, he said, expenditures and financial contributions from this group need to be limited to â&#x20AC;&#x153;restore balanceâ&#x20AC;? and voice to the majority of citizens, their voices are drowned out by money being thrown at political campaigns and candidates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Move to Amendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; movement is one avenue being pursued to restore this balance to our election process,â&#x20AC;? Godbout said. While thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about â&#x20AC;&#x153;small governmentâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;big government,â&#x20AC;? Godbout said we, as a country, need to be talking about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right Sizeâ&#x20AC;? government.

Accordions, brass and drum kits give it sound, but it’s the laughter and dancing that make it a polka. Dancers rotate as couples move in unison — one foot chasing the other. The band maintains a lively tempo as the 2/4 time signature sets the pace. According to Cedar resident Agnes Williams, such traits make polka an upbeat genre. “It’s just a happy style of music,” the former band member said. “It’s hard not to smile during a polka.” During the mid 1970’s Williams became deeply involved in the polka culture, playing accordion for her band “Agnes and Her Polka Dotz.” For about 25 years she performed at venues throughout the state including Petoskey, Manistee and, of course, the Polka Fest in Cedar. Wherever they went though, she recalled happiness filling the atmosphere. “People were dancing, smiling and asking for more everywhere,” the 78-year-old said. “It didn’t matter if we were playing for people we knew or not, everyone just wanted to have a good time.” The genre can be traced back to the 1800s, originating in what’s now the present day Czech Republic. It reached widespread popularity in Europe and America throughout the 19th century, as immigrants began arriving in search of work. Overtime, the dance and music changed slightly as different ethnic styles began to blend together. Today, modern American polka might be a couple half steps away from it’s European roots, but the traditional “polka your problems away” mantra remains. “The dancing is so fast paced. The tempo and beat really get people moving,” Williams said. “It’s a perfect way for folks to clear their mind after a long work day.” The carefree message is well represented lyrically as well. Popular songs such as “Beer Barrel Polka” and “Who Stole the Kishka?” are testament to the concept of enjoying every moment. “The lyrics can be about simple things like favorite foods or drinking beer,” Williams laughed, “but they can also be about love, girlfriends or fun times with friends and family. But they’re never sad — it just wouldn’t sound right.”

Over 20 years experience


Former accordion player from Cedar still loves a polka

ACCORDIONIST AGNES Williams is shown with her Cordovox accordion outside her Cedar home. Williams played in a band for nearly 25 years and wrote some original polkas such as “I’m a Polka Loving Grandma.” According to Williams, the lyrics are important, but it’s the rich, organ-like sound of the accordion that really gives the music it’s pep. Though some bands use fiddles and clarinets, the unique sound and look of the accordion make it the most recognized polka instrument. “It has keys on one side, like a piano and on the other there are bass buttons,” Williams explained. “You have to push it together and pull it apart to create the sound.” The motion drives air across reeds inside the bellows, the pleated portion of the instrument. Depressing specific keys and buttons, while changing the bellow’s direction, produces the desired sounds. “It’s quite different,” Williams said of her instrument. “It’s pretty heavy, so you can’t really support it on your own. You have to wear it in front of you by placing two straps over your shoulders.”

Williams career with bands ended in the late 90s, but not before she put together a few polkas of her own. Original songs such as “I’m a Polkaloving Grandma” and “Tennessee Yodel” might not have been played for an audience, but provided her with enjoyment. “The entire polka lifestyle is about enjoying the present,” she said. “There’s all different types of music kids listen to today, but none of them focus on enjoying life and just being happy.” Despite a nagging shoulder injury, Williams plans to attend the 31st Polka Fest for a chance to enjoy the laughter she provided listeners for nearly 25 years. With it being just a short walk from her house, it’s impossible to pass up the opportunity. “I can’t go the whole time, like I use to,” she chuckled, “but I’ll still dance if you ask me to. Just don’t forget to smile.”
