Midweek Fourth sparkles brightly By Patti Brandt of the Entreprise staff

TWO BOMBS explode during the Fourth of July Fireworks at Northport. See more Fourth of July coverage, pages 10-11.

Having the Fourth of July fall smack dab in the middle of the week didn’t seem to dissuade anyone from visiting Leelanau County. In fact, it appears that a couple of parades, fireworks displays, a flag raising and even a patriotic sing-along was enough to create a doublebanger — two good weekends

for the price of one. Phil Deering, owner of Deerings Market in Empire, sold tons of beer, pop, sandwiches and other “going to the beach stuff,” not just yesterday, but all week, he said. Instead of having less business for the nation’s birthday, having the holiday falling on a Wednesday bumped up sales, he said. “It actually looks like it’s going to give us two huge weekends,” Deering said. “The park here in Empire was just out of sight. That’s no surprise because of the weather. Once the weather starts hitting 90 degrees you’ve got nowhere to go but the lake.”

Marina parking hits bottleneck Elmwood Township’s plan to purchase the former Brewery Creek development for use as a parking lot across from the township marina on M-22 has hit a major snag. The current owner of the 15-acre development, a Texas financial institution known as Brown Bark I, L.P. is appealing a federal court decision that required the company to pay a $240,000 lien imposed by Traverse City Light and Power (TCLP). “Until TCLP releases that lien the whole deal is in limbo,” Elmwood Township supervisor Jack Kelly said. The development’s purchase is seen as a cornerstone to the township’s efforts to improve and promote the M-22 corridor in Greilickville, billed as the “gateway to Leelanau County.” Peter Doren, a Traverse City attorney representing TCLP, said that if Brown Bark convinces a federal appeals court panel to overturn a previous decision that it must pay off the lien, TCLP might be required to reimburse Leelanau County the $240,000 that came out of the county’s tax revolving fund to cover the lien as well as unpaid taxes on the property. “We already have a federal court judgment against Brown Bark and have already presented oral arguments against their appeal,” Doren

HAVING A BALL It’s a time when residents and visitors are usually sliding over puddles of cherries spilled from trucks on their way to processing plants. Not so in 2012. One story has it that cherries are so rare that farmers are backtracking to pick up spillage. Beyond the levity, the U.S. cherry production forecast, which was released last week, spells out the problem. Only 5.5 million pounds of tart cherries are expected to be picked in Michigan — compared to 157.5 million pounds in 2011. A rare March heat wave brought cherry trees to bloom far too early; seasonal frosts followed. Michigan sweet cherry harvest was predicted at 3,300 tons, down from 18,600 tons in 2011. In a related development, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has declared most Michigan counties as disaster areas, making farmers eligible for low-interest loans. In Section Two of this edition, the Enterprise covers the limited cherry harvest first-hand, and how sweet cherries are being driven across the Continental Divide to Leelanau County for processing.

Preschool tax off the table

By Eric Carlson Of The Enterprise staff

Tart cherry report bitter for farmers

The Bear Paw Pizza & Market in Glen Arbor sold well over 100 pizzas yesterday — a record number, said Lakeshore Stephanie Ewing, co-owner. The attendance store also sold lots of cold drinks breaks June — both alcoholic and non-alcohol- record, page 19. ic.

SARA SMITH, 13, of Climax, was thrilled to catch a beach ball tossed from a float yesterday in the Glen Arbor Fourth of July parade. More pictures and coverage is on Pages 10-11.

An effort to place a millage on the November ballot to fund early childhood education in Leelanau County may lack legal authority, and will likely be withdrawn. Members of a non-profit group closely aligned with the Leelanau Childrens’ Center that runs preschools in Leland and Northport would be breaking new ground should their plan ever be implemented. The Leelanau Early Child Development Commission (LECDC), which recently gained nonprofit status and is County chaired by county commissioner David unauthorized Marshall, was seeking to tax for to use a mix of private and public funding to education. offer “scholarships” worth between $6,000 and $8,000 to parents seeking preschool education for their children. “I don’t believe there is any possible way (the LECDC) board will approve it for the November ballot,” Marshall said. “It’s theoretically possible, but it isn’t going to happen.” The proposal may have received enough votes from commissioners to be placed on the ballot, as Marshall was joined by commissioner Jean Watkoski on the LECDC, and commissioner Richard Schmuckal said at the County Board’s June meeting that he would leave approval up to voters.

Health director demoted due to ‘harassment’ complaints By Amy Hubbell of the Enterprise staff

The director of the Benzie-Leelanau Health Department has been demoted and his salary cut in half amid allegations that he sexually harassed female staff members. The Benzie-Leelanau Board of Health voted 6-1 on June 26 to remove health officer Bill Crawford from the post he’s held since 1999, and reassign him as Female county sanitarian. Action came after a employees nearly hour-long closed session with say former Crawford to discuss director went the allegations. “It was ‘modest’ ‘far beyond’ his sexual harassment, but we had to act role as boss

under the current policy,” said Mary Tonneberger, an at-large representative on the board of health. According to draft minutes of the special meeting, Crawford was accused of having “excessive personal contact” over a period of 1 CRAWFORD ½ years with a specific female employee that went “far beyond” what was needed to perform his job. Activities reported were limited to the Benzie Resource Center in Benzonia. The allegations were contained in a report compiled by Health Board attorney Bryan Graham, (Concluded on Page 19)

ou r opinion

Ode to 400 acres We don’t know exactly how many of the 400 acres in Leelanau County found to have been diverted away from cherry production over the past five years are now in grape production. That will take another survey. But the odds-on bet is that some of the lost orchard land is now planted in vines, but most is not. Wineries just don’t require as many acres to produce a viable crop as cherry farms. Also, the number of tart cherry farms decreased, from 124 to 107. So it was with mixed feelings that we read the quinquennial Michigan Fruit Inventory for tart and sweet cherries. Yes, Leelanau easily retained its title of king of cherries in Michigan, which dominates the tart cherry industry and carries it’s share of the weight in sweet cherries. That’s great, if expected, news. And reluctantly, we’ll admit that producing too many cherries can be damaging to the industry, glutting the market and dragging prices. During good times a couple decades ago cherry plantings sprung up like poplar sprouts. The ensuing glut sunk cherry prices to their lowest levels ever. The industry has slowly recovered by taxing itself to promote the healthy side of cherries, and restricting the number of cherries that can hit the open market. So despite our love of cherry orchards, we recognize that cherries represent an industry. Collectively, they’re a commodity whose prices rise and fall like corn — although anyone who has walked through a cherry orchard in bloom knows the comparison stops there. We could use those lost orchards this year, especially if they produced a crop of tart cherries. Most cherry growers minimize their risk by planting tarts and sweets, hoping at least one type produces a good crop that sells for a fair price. Sweets bloom a week or more ahead of tarts, meaning that frosts and other weather challenges often affect one type of cherry more than the other. The tactic will help many county farms through this next year, as at least some sweets survived a brutal early spring that nipped most cherries in their infancy. We’re hoping orchardists can hold on during the next year, as the state’s tart cherry crop is expected to total only 5.5 million pounds. It was 157.5 million pounds in 2011 — which was considered a somewhat lackluster year for production. We’d like to look back in a few years to find that 2012 represents a low point in the cherry industry, with good crops and good prices following. Perhaps farmers would be inclined to replant orchards that haven’t been busted up for housing. If not, may that light shining on Leelanau hillsides be reflected through wine glasses.

‘Safety’ law should include time restriction on fireworks Our early opinion of that the Michigan Fireworks Safety Act closely resembles the federal Affordable Health Care Act in one important form. That’s right. Its name was meant to impress more than describe. Although the new fireworks law went into effect on Jan. 1, it’s impact is only being felt — and heard — right about now. The Fourth of July has traditionally been all about shooting loud sparkles into the sky. Now those sparkles are on steroids, and they lit up Leelanau’s sky this week. Still, many of those types of fireworks have been going off here for years, especially over our lakes. The bigger impact comes from the law’s cowboy-like lack of any restrictions. Consequently, neighbors can keep neighbors — or an entire village, for that matter — up all night; police officers were given few tools to help. But we’ll live with the legalization of louder explosives. Like a relaxation of the motorcycle helmet law, those shooting fireworks recklessly will be putting themselves in the most danger. Our biggest complaint is that Legislators did not include a time restriction — say, ending their use one hour after sundown. That seems a reasonable concession to the poor souls who have to work through Leelanau’s summers.

Floodplains and FIRMs raise more questions To the Editor: Floodplains and FIRMs — Status? FEMA hosted a Technical Session on the afternoon of June 5. A personal interpretation of what was said follows. My attendance was as County Planning Commission’s Education Committee Chair a) Status of the FIRMs (Flood Insurance Rate Maps). Preliminary maps (already issued) with revised floodplain delineation, subject to some amendments, will be included with RISK maps to be issued supposedly in a few months. One day after the FIRMs (now embedded in the RISK maps) are issued, properties with LOMAs (Letter of Map Amendments) would receive an automatic re-certification or required to resubmit for a LOMA or otherwise obtain flood insurance. Properties without a LOMA, but supposedly in the floodplain, might find it necessary to provide much more data — or compelled to get flood insurance. b) Great Lakes Coastal Study. This study, conducted by the USACE/FEMA will affect the location of the floodplains, but most likely not until 2014. It could lead to a new set of FIRMs. The study has two major aspects: modeling of changes in elevation due to storm surges and waves, and secondly modeling the overland wave actions (erosion, run-up, propagation) and their potential for flooding. Riparian property owners could be affected by the outcome of this study. Those interested in more details, check On a personal note I have sufficient understanding of computer modeling and some of the governing equations to say that based on what was presented at the technical session (albeit in the form of a progress report), I have significant questions on the assumptions inherent in the models, the uncertainty in their predictions, and the lack of convincing validations.

Health care not a fret for college-age kids for now

I don’t have to worry about getting sick. Unfortunately, many young adults between the age of 18 and 26 can’t say the same. I’m part of a demographic that, according to a 2011 Gallup Poll, is the second most likely age group in America to be uninsured. Luckily though, many others and myself have been given the privilege of remaining on our parent’s health insurance policies until we reach 26 years of age. This may not seems like that big of a deal to some, but for myself and other young adults trying to begin our lives, it’s the difference between sinking and swimming. If there’s one thing that’s for certain, it’s that health care is expensive. Even what begins as a minor trip to the hospital can result in a bill that’s nearly impossible to pay. As a student at Central Michigan University, I’m aware that having to cover an unexpected medical bill, or even another monthly payment, would throw a major wrench into my finances. It could even result in having to give up school entirely. College is far from free after all, and missing a tuition or housing payment isn’t excusable. It’s not just students that benefit from this policy however. Though it used to require an individual to be a full-time student (taking at least 12 credit hours) to remain on your parent’s policy, now anyone within the allotted age group can remain on his or her parent’s plan. Is that a bad thing? Should a young adult have to attend school full time to be able to have this privilege? I don’t think so. Going to college isn’t always an option for some people. In fact, spending that kind of money can even be the wrong choice at times. That shouldn’t discredit the amount of effort these individuals put in though, as many of these individuals have put in just as much work at their respective jobs as I have hitting the books. I even have a fair amount of friends that, with school not being for them, decided to enter the work

force right away. Though their bills A column aren’t as hefty as a year’s worth of by tuition, I’ve still Corey seen them struggle with budgeting at Frost times. Having to afford their own insurance or having to cover a medical expense without insurance could greatly impact whether or not they can make rent, afford their car payment or even put food in the refrigerator. With the cost of living constantly on the rise, it’s nice to have a slight edge when trying to plant our feet solidly on the ground. Being included on my parent’s policy will give me enough time to develop a financial foundation, and when the time finally comes, move on to my own policy, better equipped to handle the cost. The most important thing about being able to stay on my parent’s insurance however, is that I can go about my everyday life knowing that if I happen to get sick, I can get it taken care of. I don’t have to stand by and watch a condition worsen and worsen, unable to ask for help because my wallet or bank account simply isn’t large enough. My parents agree — they both sleep better knowing that my younger sister, a sophomore at CMU, and I are taken care of and aren’t putting our long-term health at risk over a bill. I don’t have to worry about the sniffling student next to me in my lecture hall, or refuse to shake my professor’s hands in fear of falling ill and being unable to continue with my normal class schedules. Through this excellent opportunity I’m able to sleep soundly and prepare myself for the moment I leave the nest for good and finally take on all of the costs involved with being an adult. Do you agree that this is a good policy to have? Is it a good thing to allow young adults a couple extra years to remain on their parents insurance, saving them a cost that many would agree just isn’t affordable or should we be required to find our own policy upon turning 18-years-old? Send me an email at intern@leelanaunews. com to tell me what you think.

Snyder’s courtship with more letters to the editor President’s choices going against the laws of the land

labor going nowhere


They are dating. They are working on getting along but marriage is not in the cards. Welcome to the unusual and perplexing dance between Gov. Rick Snyder and organized labor. Since the GOP governor was elected he has huddled about half a dozen times with labor leaders in what one terms as “an open door policy.” And Building Trades honcho Pat Devlin confesses, “I appreciate that relationship (because) when we don’t talk, nothing will come out of it.” But so far labor has walked away from the table with a fat goose egg. Devlin reveals some legislation has been “stalled” with others shoved to the “back burner” but on the biggies labor does not want, there’s been no win. But interestingly Mr. Devlin does not finger the governor. While suggesting that “We’ve been at Holy War and I think the basic rights ... enjoyed by labor have been under attack for a number of years,” he doesn’t think Mr. Snyder is the bad guy. Devlin accuses the GOP legislature. He is praying the governor will eventually stand up to those conservatives? “We’ve been on him about making the right choices,” but Devlin, who is not attending his first political rodeo, respectively sees the governor’s side. “He’s faced with trying to build his coalition and move his agenda forward and with that, sometimes I think he has to do things he might not necessarily agree with.”

By Tim Skubick

Or put more bluntly, the governor has held his nose and reluctantly given in to a bunch of Republicans who look and act just a tad more conservative than him. And Mr. Devlin is not alone in reaching that conclusion as many in this town wonder when and if the governor will “blast the GOP.” Surely you jest. You will see no public blasting from this governor. But if you look closely you can see where he has asserted his will on the GOP. He privately sent word he would not back a 20-week ban on abortion and the provision was left out of an anti-abortion package on the House floor with no explanation given by anyone. The civil rights community is hoping the governor will use his veto pen to nix what Republicans are calling “election reform” aimed at preventing voter fraud. The Detroit Baptist ministers give the governor an ear-full the other day claiming the package seeks to depress the minority vote. Per usual the governor won’t say what he will do as he quietly reviews the bills. While labor and the governor continue to court, the two have a serious spat over the union proposal to guarantee collective bargaining rights. It may appear on the November statewide ballot if he can stand the legal scrutiny of the state supreme court. Don’t bet the farm on that. In a rare and mild rebuke the governor observes, “Union leaders are sort of rolling back the clock on time.” He frets that the war he’s been trying to avoid between labor and business is now at hand, although he adds, “I hope not ... It’s encouraging divisiveness instead of people working together” which is his mantra. Mr. Devlin and others will continue to meet but he’s hoping Mr. Snyder will tell the right wingers to take a hike. “I would love to see it just one time. I haven’t seen it yet. That would make my day. That’s why I go to church as I pray for it. That day’s coming.” Now who is the unrealistic optimist?

NCAC, schools usage agreement misleading

To the Editor:

To the Editor:

Another vacuous Presidential platitude ... ”it’s the right thing to do for the America people!” Surely he’s joking! Intentionally or otherwise, young or old, illegals are illegals but if you’re under 30, with misdemeanors, word of honor you’ve been here five years, then it’s ”bingo you’re in” contrary to America’s Immigration laws! It’s the nose under the tent looking suspiciously like that defeated back door amnesty Dream Act. Presidents choosing to ignore Immigration Laws are welcome signs for illegals! So just when/where will fabricated presidential “choosing” stop? Just what part of the above is the “right thing” for the American people? Senator Obama campaigned quite the opposite but now unapologetically announced he chooses “not” to enforce some Supreme court decisions/laws of the land. These aren’t multiple option choices! Congress legally passes laws, the court validates but this President chooses those he likes and dislikes, then decides if they’re enforced or not! Anarchy from the top, from the Presidency? Law-abiding Americans know this is wrong! It’s against the Presidents oath of office, it’s against American laws, it’s against everything we expect American citizens to do or be, but we’re expected to bankroll, roll over and accept because he thinks he’s King? Mr. President, you’re no King! Your ruling by arbitrary fiat deliberately ignores your sworn presidential oath of office! Shouldn’t a Constitutional lawyer know this? It’s your fault our borders aren’t sealed as your job requires and your campaign pledged! Instead you’re sponsoring and sanctioning unlawful actions, defying America’s Constitution and American laws. Stop pointing accusatory fingers elsewhere and encouraging community chaos. You’re the real problem! Mr. President, do your job ... Article II, Section I in the Constitution and implement your sworn oath “…preserve, protect and defend the Constitution ...” doing otherwise sends Americans the message… “Who Cares ... Get Lost!” Mary L Bowen P.O. Box 116, Omena

Your page two story in the June 28 Enterprise about a new use agreement between Northport Public School and the Northport Community Arts Center is misleading in several respects. If I’m not mistaken, this is the third such story on this subject. Never has anyone consulted with NCAC personnel about any aspect of the NCAC/NPS negotiations. Especially troubling is the assertion that “When people make donations (to the NCAC) they may not have a clear idea of what they are donating to.” While our percentage of revenue from ticket sales and other “earned income” is well above the norm for arts organizations, more than half our revenue is from contributions, grants and other gifts. Because of the manner in which we solicit, every one of our donors knows exactly where their contribution goes. In fact, the management of the NCAC is leaner and more professionally efficient than any arts organization in my experience. The claim that people may not know “what they are donating to” is not only misleading, it is false, damaging and in need of correction. Douglas Scripps, president Northport Community Arts Center Mill St., Northport Editor’s note: The statement in quotes was part of a story that included Northport Public School’s efforts to separate its ownership of the district’s auditorium from the non-profit Northport Community Arts Center, a nonprofit group with the same name.

Park pass return much appreciated To the Editor: On Sunday, my son, grandson and I rode the Trail from the dunes to Glen Haven and back. When we got back to the dunes, I discovered that my park pass had fallen out of my pocket. It was very hot and I had no idea where it could be and didn’t want to retrace the route. I called the headquarters to report this as the lineup to get into the dunes was too long to try to tell a ranger there. Dusty’s assistant, Gary VanDerziel contacted Paul Purifoy to report this loss. Paul said he would call me if the pass was found and arrange to return it. It turns out that Gail Purifoy found the pass on Monday, turned it in to the dune climb ranger post and Paul returned it to me today (Tuesday) This pass is very special because it was one of the first passes given out when the Park was established. It’s return is greatly appreciated. I want to commend Gary, Paul, and Gail for their diligence and graciousness in making sure it got returned. Ann Davey S. Dune Highway, Glen Lake

Road Commission explains renewal To the Editor: On Aug. 7 the voters of Leelanau County will be asked to renew the current one-half mill for road repair and maintenance in Leelanau County. We want the voters to know this renewal is the same one-half mill that has been approved by the voters every two years since 1986. The money raised provides approximately 23 percent of the Road Commission’s annual budget of $4.8 million, and is used primarily for winter maintenance (snowplowing). Each normal eight-hour day in the winter there are 24 snowplow trucks on the road servicing 630 miles of roads, and our plows are able to service each road during a normal eight hour daily work shift. This millage also helps provide night and weekend snowplow service, and money not used in the winter is used for the summer preventive maintenance programs. The Road Commission is very grateful for the continued support and confidence expressed by the County taxpayers. Leelanau County Board of County Road Commissioners E. Eckerle Road, Suttons Bay

New law allows riparian owners to mow beaches without permits “I hope no one abuses the privilege of grooming. We all know the importance that wetlands play in our ecosystem,” Almeter said. Further information on the “do’s and don’ts” of beach grooming is available at www.saveourshoreline. org. “This does not end our fight for private property rights,” Almeter said. More specifically, the law clarifies that the state may not use laws governing wetlands or submerged lands to prohibit “leveling of sand, removal of vegetation, grooming of soil or removal of debris” in typical beach area of sand, rock, or pebbles. The new law also allows the mowing of vegetation below a defined “ordinary high water mark” regardless of soil type. The mowing exemption should help shoreline own-

ers remove the invasive, non-native plant phragmites from their property, according to the SOS. The struggle for relaxed beach grooming rules has gone on for years. “It has been 12 long years, but finally we have an important piece of the relief we have been asking for,” said Ernie Krygier, SOS president. “Under this bill, we expect to see a significant reduction in phragmites, better beaches, and more tourism money flowing into Michigan.” While the law takes away the need for state permits, a permit for many activities is still required from the Corps of Engineers-Detroit District. The exception is mowing, which the Detroit District says it does not regulate. As a result, with the new law, most Great Lakes owners may mow immediately without the need for a permit.

A new law relaxing beach grooming rules will allow most shoreline owners along the Great Lakes to maintain their beaches without first seeking a permit. The law was approved by the state Legislature and signed by Gov. Rick Snyder. Shoreline property owners still will be required to get a permit from the Army Corps of Engineers for beach grooming below the ordinary high water mark elevation. In the past, riparian owners were also required to apply for and receive a $50 permit to alter Great Lakes shorelines. The change was sought by a statewide non-profit organization going by the name of Save Our Shoreline (SOS). Dave Almeter of Bingham Township serves on the SOS board of directors.

WATER LEVELS in the Lake Michigan-Lake Huron basin rose just one inch from May to June, remaining six inches below the level seen during the same period last year and 19 inches below the long term average recorded between 1918 and 2011. Precipitation over Lake Michigan last month and for a 12 month period was described as “below average” in a report released last week by the Army Corps of Engineers hydrology office in Detroit. Water levels are expected to remain 19 to 20 inches below their long term average through December, and range five to eight inches below last year’s levels, hydrologists predict.

Road Commission buys three new trucks By Patti Brandt Of The Enterprise staff

FOUR-YEAR-OLD Gio Nielsen looked a little sleepy as she sat on her dad Scott’s shoulders. The Nielsens were visiting the county from Colorado.

The Leelanau County Road Commission will spend about $450,000 for trucks to keep the roads clear of snow this winter. The Road Commission on Tuesday approved on a vote of 2-1 a bid to purchase three tandem axle cab and chassis trucks from the JX Peterbilt company in Green Bay, Wis., for $107,950. And in June the commission approved a bid of $322,000 from Truck and Trailer Specialties in Boyne Falls to outfit the trucks with wingplows, plow front hoists, material spreaders, fuel and electrical systems, hydraulics, tarps and running lights. The trucks should be outfitted and ready for the snow and ice season by November, said Joe Nedow, finance manager for the Road Commission. John Popa, vice-chairman of the Road Commission, voted against the measure, saying the budget that was approved last year called for two new trucks. If there is extra money it should be put toward the roads or a bulldozer or payloader, he said. “I think we do a good job in managing our fleet,” Popa said. He wasn’t clear on why three trucks were needed instead of two. This year the commission was able to purchase three trucks because the


county got a good price for two trucks that were sold to the Kalkaska County Road Commission, Nedow said. Those trucks, 2002 and 2006 Sterlings, were sold for a total of $160,000. Leelanau County has 24 plow routes, providing 24 hour service on state trunk line roads and service seven days per week on county roads, Nedow said. There are 24 plows in the fleet, with a few spares for when trucks break down or are in the shop for things like oil changes. Trucks are on a 12-year rotation, with at least two new trucks purchased each year, Nedow said. In other business, the Road Commission is gearing up for a millage renewal that will be on the ballot in the August primary election. First approved in 1986, the two-year, 0.5mill property tax costs the average household about $50 per year and brought in about $1.1 million this year, Nedow said, or about 23 percent of the Road Commission’s $4.8 million core budget. County employees have also started work on about 40 miles of roads that will be tarred and chipped this year. Traverse Lake Road was started last week and on Monday workers will start on Townline Road. About two miles of road is done per day, said Herb Cradduck, manager; all roads are expected to be complete by mid-August.

The Leelanau Road Commission also spent Tuesday, June 26, on South Manitou Island doing its annual assessment of 17 miles of roads it owns the easements on. The roads are all twotrack unpaved roads or gravel roads, Johnson said. The island is owned and controlled by the National Park Service and the public is not allowed to use motorized vehicles there.

At this time of year many people are traveling and are often more active trying new outdoor activities. Since the cherry festival and Fourth of July are here I thought I would revisit dental first aid kits. The most common kinds of emergency treatments involve losing a filling or crown, some type of gum tissue injury, or a knocked out tooth. There are a variety of over the counter medicaments that one might consider placing in their first aid kit. For the lost filling or crown there are temporary filling materials available. Three of the common brand names are Refilit, Temparin and Dentemp. They sell for around 5 dollars. For most gum tissue trauma such as burns from pizza there are products like Orajel available. Of course Tylenol and Ibuprophen are appropriate in these cases as well. These products address the pain only and not the underlying conditions. For the well prepared, a tooth saver system is handy for those rare cases when a tooth is knocked out completely. EMT Tooth Saver and Save a Tooth are examples of these systems. A tooth may be stored for up to 24 hours in the nourishing liquids, but in all such cases a tooth should be replanted within 30 minutes for the best long term result. The cost of one of these systems is about 20 dollars. Finally for those with orthodontic retainers there is a product called stay tray that is used to temporarily replace a lost or broken retainer using only warm water. This sells for about 12 dollars. With these products the vast majority of dental emergencies can be made less traumatizing. Questions? Call 271-3315 or like Dr. Mikesell on facebook.

OLD GLORY was raised by members of Cub Scout Pack #111 of Empire yesterday at Old Settlers Park.

Leelanau County’s roads are in just about the same condition they were last year, said Jim Johnson, an engineer with the Leelanau County Road Commission. Some are in good shape, meaning they don’t need any work; some are in fair condition, meaning they could use a little work; and some are in poor condition, meaning they need to be resurfaced or a total reconstruction, Johnson said. Johnson, Mike Woods, from the Northwest Michigan Council of Governments, and Jeff Hunt, a maintenance supervisor with the Michigan Department of Transportation service center in Traverse City, traveled Leelanau County’s primary county roads and state highways — about 300 miles, in all — over two days on June 26-27. Johnson rated each road on a scale of one 1 to 10 on its surface condition, the only characteristic that is assessed. The roads have been rated annually for the last eight years, a process that must be done before November when the snow begins to fall, Johnson said. The information is tallied by the Asset Management Council and used to report the condition of Michigan’s approximately 30,000 miles of roads to the state legislature. A formal report of the assessment will not be available from the state until about February, Johnson said.

What are some dental first aid kit materials?

VISITORS NOW have a new “favorite spot” for viewing sunsets from Leland — a viewing area atop a new restroom in Leland Harbor. These folks enjoyed the sunset Tuesday.

have made a point of ensuring that local units of government first endorse applications for 2-percent funding, and then pass funding through the governmental unit’s financial books before the money goes to the final recipient. The order states that the money must be used for “compensating said local units of government for governmental services provided to the (tribe) and for impacts associated with the existence and location of the tribal casino in its vicinity.” However, the Tribal Council generally pays the money to units of government and nonprofit organizations within its six county service area that provide services directly to tribal members — and is doing so legally, tribal attorneys assert. For example, the tribe has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars since 1994 for the Indian Education program at Suttons Bay Public Schools, which provides services exclusively to Native American students. Money designated by the Tribal Council for the program may not be used by the school district for other purposes. Similarly, the tribe is now partially funding an Anishnabemowin (native language) program at the school after state and local officials agreed to regard it as a “world language” eligible for funding similar to Spanish or Chinese. Almost all students in the Anishnabemowin program are Native American. Some of the tribe’s 2-percent funding is provided to organizations serving tribal members through units of government elsewhere within the tribe’s six-county service area that are located nowhere near a tribal casino. Earlier this year, for example, Chestonia Township in Antrim County approved an application for $30,000 in tribal 2-percent funding intended to benefit a Tribal Elders program based in Peshawbestown. Over the course of several 2-percent cycles, the Tribal Elders group received some $75,000 through the township. After township residents complained to their Township Board earlier this year, and a township attorney opined that the payment was unlawful, Chestonia Township returned its latest 2-percent check to the tribe, according to a report in the Antrim Review newspaper. Officials of the Michigan Gaming Control Board earlier this year told the Enterprise that the only way to ensure the tribe complies fully with the 1993 compact is to take the tribe back to federal court. But that could take years of litigation and millions of dollars in legal fees.

That decision was made by the County Board during a special meeting last week even though the State wants board members learned at the local units same meeting that such payto abide by ments may be “not in compli‘plain ance” with a 1993 federal language’ in court order outlining how the casino pact tribal “2-percent” casino revenue sharing program should work. Payments to nonprofits such as the Leelanau Christian Neighbors group — whose application for two-percent funding was endorsed by the County Board last week — are also “prohibited” by state law unless the county has a contract with the group to provide “governmental services” for the county, according to an auditor from the Michigan Gaming Control Board. County administrator Chet Janik said that if and when the tribal council approves the 2-percent payment, he will see to it that the county has in place an appropriate contract for “governmental service” with Leelanau Christian Neighbors to make the county’s transfer of funds to the non-profit

ministry “legal.” Janik said he “felt sorry” for Leelanau Christian Neighbors after the Suttons Bay Township Board last month turned down a request to endorse the group’s “2-percent” funding application as the township had in previous years. At the request of Suttons Bay Township officials, the Michigan Gaming Control Board earlier this year provided the township written notice that payments to nonprofits that have no contract to provide governmental services to local units of government are prohibited under the law. No such written notice was provided directly to Leelanau County, however. The 1993 federal court order requires the tribe to distribute two-percent of its slot machine revenues twice annually to “local units of government” in the “immediate vicinity” of its two casinos for “governmental services” provided to the tribe. The tribe pays no local property taxes on its casinos in Grand Traverse County and Leelanau County, or on any of the land held in federal trust for the tribe, much of it in Leelanau County. The tribe has interpreted the 1993 federal court order to mean that it may distribute 2-percent funding virtually anywhere within in its federally-recognized six-county service area at its own discretion. According to officials of the Michigan Gaming Control Board, tribal officials have been formally reminded several times since 1994 of the actual provisions of the federal court order, and have ceased giving 2-percent money directly to favored nonprofit organizations as they did in previous years without first going through a local unit of government. In the past decade, tribal officials

David Hicks of the Michigan Gaming Control Board said it is incumbent on local units of government to ensure that they comply with the plain-language meaning of the current federal court order, and are using the two-percent money to fund their own governmental programs rather than simply funneling money to non-profit organizations and programs favored by the Tribal Council. Hicks acknowledged that getting every unit of government within the tribe’s six county service area to comply with the order and stop competing with other units of government to receive 2-percent funding will be a challenge absent a modified court order. After formally endorsing the Leelanau Christian Neighbors 2-percent request at its special meeting last week, the County Board also endorsed a request for $15,200 from the county Equalization Department to help update property tax maps.

contract for governmental services. That change in the Suttons Bay Township Board’s policy came after an auditor from the Michigan Gaming Control Board informed the township that such payments are “not in compliance” with a 1993 court order outlining how the 2-percent casino revenue sharing program should work and are “prohibited” by state law as well. Suttons Bay Township is now asking the tribe for $10,000 to help repair tennis and basketball courts at its “Water Wheel Park” in the Village of Suttons Bay. The township is also asking the tribe for $25,000 to help renovate a building the township plans to purchase in Hansen Plaza for use as township offices. Township officials said they regretted being unable to endorse an application from the non-profit Leelanau Christian Neighbors group, as they had numerous times in the past, after the township was informed recently that such payments were not allowed under the law. Applications for two-percent funding for the latest semi-annual payout were due to the tribe on June 30. The Tribal Council was expected to consider requests for funding from units of government throughout its sixcounty service area at a meeting later this month. Customarily, an announcement of which 2-percent requests will be honored is made in early August. — By Eric Carlson

About 100 entries made their way down M-22 in Glen Arbor yesterday in the 49th annual parade. The parade, which took about one hour, included the usual suspects — fire trucks, politicians and the Glen Arbor Kazoo Corps. There were also a couple of new entries, including the new Glen Arbor Fire Department Rescue and Fire boat, which was 100 percent paid for with community donations. The boat was put into service this year. Stanley Brubaker, the unofficial organizer of the parade, said there were just as many spectators this year as last, despite the fact that the holiday fell in the middle of the week. Temperatures that rose to nearly 90 degrees didn’t keep anybody away either. “There are a ton of spectators,” Brubaker said. “It takes up the whole town.” There were also just as many parade entries, he said. “People started lining up at about 10 a.m. in Glen Arbor,” he said. The Glen Arbor parade has been held every year since 1963.

JOE FIELDS of Northport watches intently with family and friends as fireworks soar above at Will Thomas’ home off Smith Ave.

night above Hancock Park in Leland.

Leland enjoys parade despite heat Despite uncomfortable heat and humidity, the Fourth of July parade in Leland went off without a hitch. Conditions kept some people indoors, however, including the Grand Marshal of the parade, Nancy Telgard, who remained ensconced at an air conditioned restaurant nearby, The Bluebird, with younger relatives who own the place. Bluebird co-owner Lynn Telgard organized the parade again this year as she has for many years given the unavailability of other volunteers. Perennial helpers include Bluebird employee Bob Babich and his wife Sarah Jane Johnson who were named parade King and Queen

this year “kind of by default,” according to Johnson. The heat did not deter 86 year-old Dorothy Egeler Polack from playing her role at the parade — as a judge. She currently lives in Traverse City as she has for many years, and hasn’t been to a Leland Fourth of July parade for more than a decade. “Of course, I used to come every year,” she said. “My mom used to work at The Bluebird and being part of the parade was always a tradition.” A cousin of Clifford Egeler, Dorothy Egeler was born in East Leland and is a 1944 graduate of Leland High School

and was class valedictorian. “It’s great to be back for the parade,” she said. This year’s theme for the Leland Fourth of July parade was “Snapshots of Leelanau.” Chief parade judge John Stanley named winners in various categories for parade entries. “Most Artistic and Best Use of Theme:” VerSnyder Fruits; “Best Musical Unit:” Leelanau Community Band; “Most Patriotic:” Little Finger Post of the VFW; “Spirit Award:” Leland Yacht Club Sailing School; and “Most Humorous:” Snapshots of Leland, known only to the judges as “Unit 13.”

About 5,000 showed up to see the 40-minute fireworks show at Northport. Joe Fields and Charlotte Seagar of Northport were among the Will Thomas family who had one of the closest views of the display, which was shot a few 100 yards away from their home at the end of Smith Avenue. “It’s always great,” Fields said. “And it’s always better than you expected.” “It’s so spectacular that you wouldn’t want to miss it once you’ve seen it,” Seagar added. This year’s fireworks display by the Village of Northport included 24 “more bombs,” than a year ago, according to Greg King, administrative coordinator. “My guess is 5,000 people,” King said. “They were already laying on

blankets this morning. “And now it’s jam-packed.” King called the fireworks “the biggest show on the peninsula.” “For a little place like Northport, this is a big thing,” said Fields, who recalled one year that a shell misfired just over his head. “Each year we keep getting better and better.” Mike Rogers, who was one of the original fireworks guys, said the show has been going since 1976. It was postponed once, due to bad weather, and rescheduled two weeks later. “All you have to do is watch it one time and you’ll be back,” said Hugh Cook Jr., Leelanau Township fire chief. “It goes solid color in the air for 32 minutes and they’re all happy.”

Four diamond gems on elite team By Mike Spencer Of The Enterprise staff

Glen Lake was a dominant force in girls softball and in the Northwest Conference. The Lakers also dominated the inaugural 10-member girls softball/ track Enterprise Dream Team. A quartet of Glen Lake diamond girls, who led the Lakers to a 29-9-1 conference and district championship were chosen to the elite team. Players were nominated by their respective coaches and voted onto the squad by a local officials’ association and the Enterprise sports staff. Seniors Casey Kahler, Paige Picard and Marriah Sobczak along with junior Hannah Schweikart were among the Glen Lake girls softball players chosen. Glen Lake track and field athletes and state qualifiers Lindsey Friend, a senior, and Katie Stowe, a sophomore were also chosen to the squad. Suttons Bay had senior track and field athlete Dana Wessels, junior track and field athlete Katie Tigges and sophomore softball pitcher Jane Hursey elected to the Dream Team. St. Mary’s senior softball player Taylor Moore was also chosen. Glen Lake softball coach Gary Galla said his quartet was truly something special. “I’m happy for these girls,” said Galla of the four who played a key role in the Lakers third league title in the last four seasons. “They have worked extremely hard over the years and it shows in the way they play the game and the way their season progressed. “These four ladies have set wonderful examples for the younger players, plus they set the bar high.” Picard, who was the team’s leadoff batter and centerfielder, led the team in most offensive categories including batting average. Sobczak, who played shortstop and batted second, Schweikart, who played third base and batted cleanup, were also among the offensive leaders. Kahler, who shared pitching duties with freshman Jessica Penny, posted a 20-5 record and struck out 102 batters. Although Galla had a solid ballclub, he wouldn’t mind coaching a full squad of Dream Team softball players. “Players are generally the same no matter what school they are from — they work hard, want to win and want to be successful,” Galla said. Although softball players and track athletes had opportunities for other post-season honors like all-conference, all-district or all-region, Galla said the Dream Team is a great additon. “I think this is a neat opportunity for girls to be recognized in the area and get some attention,” Galla said. “It’s wonderful for the girls to get some accolades for all their hard work and accomplishments. They all deserve it.”

Glen Lake’s Picard repeats as Division 4 All-Stater Paige Picard has been a big hit for the Glen Lake girls softball team the past four seasons. So it comes as no surprise that the 18-year-old senior centerfielder and leadoff batter was a repeat All-Stater in Division 4 softball. Picard was chosen one of the top four outfielders by the Michigan High School Softball Coaches Association. “I had good feeling Paige would make it,� Glen Lake coach Gary Gallas said. “She was last year and her stats were even better this year.� “Making All-State again is really awesome,� said Picard, who quickly added that she couldn’t have done anything without the strong team she played with. “I put in a lot of hard work and it showed.

“I thought I was much improved.� Picard, a career .430 hitter, batted .433 this spring. She had 52 hits, including nine doubles, and she had 61 runs scored. She also had 30 doubles. She finished her career with 144 runs scored, 154 hits and 81 steals. “As a lead off hitter Paige had a combination of great speed and making contact with the ball,� Galla said. “She also had decent power when she needed it. “We would roll if she was on and that’s what got us going as a team.� The 61 runs scored this season, were second to one other player in Division 4. Only striking out 12 times is also an impressive stat. “She had 142 plate appearances which tells you she always made contact,� Galla said. The Lakers finished 29-9-1. They were unbeaten Northwest Conference

champions and won their first district since 2003. Picard, a left-handed batter and fielder, was a big factor with the bat and glove. “What made Paige so special in center was her first step. She really improved her game from a year ago,� Galla said. “If she made a mistake, she had enough speed to overcome it. “She caught several balls in the gap this year that saved several games for us.� “I was able to break some bad habits in the outfield this season, thanks to a lot of repetitions with the coaches catching fly balls,� Picard said. Picard, who recalls playing ball as a 5-year-old, said softball has always been her No. 1 sport. Picard said hitting was her favorite part of playing softball. “Getting on base, stealing bases and

scoring runs,� Picard said. “That was fun and it really helped the team.� The 81 career steals was also quite a rush for Picard. “There’s a lot of adrenaline knowing that you’re going on the pitch and may have to slide and hoping that you are called safe,� she said. “It was fun getting down and dirty.� While Picard will be attending Michigan State University next year, the Lakers will be left trying to fill the void. “You can never replace a player like Paige,� Galla said of his three-time AllConference, All-District and and AllRegion player who led the team in batting all four of her seasons. “The only thing you can do as a coach is find the best person to play center and let her make her own way.� Senior shortstop Marriah Sobczak, who batted No. 2 behind Picard, was an honorable mention All-Stater.

and don’t want to do it,” he said. “But if I push myself, they end up being the best runs.” Maures grew up in the South Bronx and was raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. But he was not interested in running in his childhood days. “The only thing I ran from was cops,” Maures said with a smile. “Maybe I’ve always looked over the shoulder.” Maures played basketball in the inner city, but “you had to be good,” he said. Maures started running in 1975. “It was something that I happened to fall into and like it,” he said. Maures said he likes it because it’s personal.

miles each Saturday and Sunday, starting from his home off M-22. “This morning it was just gorgeous,” Maures said after completing a 10-miler. “I have a 10-mile course south and a 12-miler north. “And usually there’s nobody on the road which is perfect. And it’s cooler this time of the year.” Maures does his weekend runs starting around 6 a.m. His weekday runs come after work. “When I come home from work, the focus is to get out the door and go,” he said. “I just do an easy three miler up here and back.” Maures admits there are days of working hard and keeping up with the younger guys when it’s hard to think about running. “There are days when I’m sluggish

Stephen Maures has run his race for the season — the Bayshore Half Marathon. But don’t expect the 56-year-old Leelanau Township man to rest on his laurels. Maures still pounds the pavement to the tune of 40 miles of week for the health of it. “I focus just on trying to maintain the same thing year round,” said Maures, a local carpenter. “I seldom miss a day of running.” Even in the dead of winter ... including March 3, the morning after the big snowstorm in Leelanau County. “Sometimes that’s the best time to be out there,” Maures said. “It was fun. “To think in your own mind that you are the only one out is even better.” Maures’ year-round training most likely helped his efforts in the Bayshore event on May 26. He finished the course in 1 hour, 24 minutes, 35 seconds. He was 14th overall and first

said. “And it’s great to have a 20-yearold come up to you after a race and ask you how old you are and they go ‘Holly cow! It’s unbelievable.’” Maures said the Bayshore race is the only one he does now. For years, he also ran the Cherry Festival and Grand Rapids 25K River Run. After the Bayshore race, Maures doesn’t let up. “Running is a way of life for me,” Maures said. “I’ve been lucky that I’ve never had problems with knees. “It’s all about how you train, how you run and what you put on your feet.” Maures runs in Saucony’s Minimalist shoes. “It’s made a big difference,” Maures said. While manufacturers recommend changing shoes every 3,000 miles, Maures shoots for 4,000. “It’s like anything, it’s about expense,” he said. “Running is cheap, except for the shoes.” Maures enjoys his summer runs and beating the heating. He runs 10 or 12

among men 55-and-over. “It’s my second best half-marathon,” said Maures, who ran a 1:24.25 in 2008. “But this felt great, especially since as you get older, a lot of people’s times decline.” Maures, who doesn’t time himself when he goes out on his training runs, keeps close tabs on his time during races. “In a race I do because there are certain points that if I want to accomplish or keep that time, I have to meet those boundaries,” he said. “As I get older, it gets more and more difficult.” Maures said the only time he’s serious about running is during a race. “It’s that competitor in me,” he admitted. “I don’t want to be last.” Maures said there is something about getting to the starting line at a race. “Everything that comes up on you, there’s not a better feeling,” he said. “It’s almost like a fear.” He also enjoys the camaraderie. “I love being around the atmosphere. You meet a lot of good people,” he

Why your company needs Aflac now more than ever These days, keeping costs under control while keeping employee morale up can be challenging. That’s why there’s never been a better time for you and your employees to have Aflac.

You can provide Aflac at no direct cost to your company. Aflac policies are 100% employee-paid and are purchased on a voluntary basis. Many companies choose to make Aflac policies available as a cost-effective solution to help employees with the rising cost of out-of-pocket health care expenses.

Aflac helps many companies save on FICA and FUTA taxes. Some of Aflac’s tax-advantaged plans allow employees to use pretax dollars to pay for their policies. And when you lower the taxable income of your participating employees, you may also reduce your overall share of FICA and FUTA taxes.

Northport runner keeps on going Continued from Page 15 “Running is a personal sport,” he said. “It takes lots of discipline because you’re not depending upon on anyone, it’s all about you. “You just can’t say, ‘No! I don’t want to do it.’” Maures said running is a physical and mental activity that puts him in a good place every day. “If a lot of people started running, they wouldn’t need a psychiatrist ... they’d be out of business,” he said. “It’s almost like medicine for the mind.” Despite all the miles he puts on, Maures has no intention of competing at the next level — a full marathon, 26.1 miles. He did a personal one in the county as a fundraiser for a local doctor. “A marathon just doesn’t appeal to

It takes a heckuva lot of dis-

cipline to maintain a certain level.” Maures, a 6-footer, runs best at about 165 pounds. He cross trains, lifting weights and likes to ride a bicycle. And he has no intentions of stopping his daily routine. “Not until I die,” he said. “It’s so much a part of my life.” And he encourages others to stay the course. “If you have a passion, don’t stop,” he said. “Hold onto it. “Sometimes it’s the only thing you have.” Maures also enjoys watching others run. “I love to see people run,” he said. “There’s nothing better for me to see when I’m driving and seeing people on the road. “I don’t care what they look like or who they are.”

The Northport Bay Yacht Club held its annual Stars & Stripes Race on Saturday. The skippers decided on a standard nine-mile course which turned very long due to a lack of wind during the middle of the race. With 10 boats starting the race they were divided into two fleets, but the lack of wind had several boats abandoning the race. Fleet finishes were: Fleet A – first place Lil Boom and first overall; second place Tateki and third overall; Fleet B – first place went to Paradocs

and second overall; second place went to Puff, which was fourth overall. The season started June 23 with the Shakedown Race. Nine boats participated in a sixmile course due to light winds. They were Lil Boom, Kristin B, Callisto, Tateki, Great Expectations, Ragtime, Paradocs, Puff and Asylum. Asylum, skippered by Doug Kilgren, was first overall and the winner of Flight B. Taketa, skippered by Morgan O’Shaughnessy, was second overall

and first in Fleet A. Puff, skippered by Mike Sinclair, was third overall and runner-up in Fleet B. Rounding out Fleet A was Callisto/ John Todd, second, and Lil Boom/The Rogers Family, third. Fleet B finished with Great Expectation/Bob Zwemer in third place. The Yacht Club also held its annual Steakout Dinner & Auction on June 23. The event raised just over $2,900 with half of the proceeds going to the Northport Youth Sailing School.

While Leelanau County celebrated the Fourth of July, it was another day — a hot day — at work for county deputies and fire personnel. Every available deputy was assigned to monitor Independence Day activities from Glen Haven to Northport and everywhere in between. “Everyone worked Wednesday,” said Det. Clint Kerr, who donned his brown uniform for parade duty in Glen Arbor. Kerr usually dresses in plain clothes. In addition to crowd control in Glen Arbor and traffic control in Leland for parades at noon and 3 p.m., respectively, seven deputies were assigned to the fireworks Wednesday night in Northport and five others were on hand for fireworks on West Grand Traverse Bay in Elmwood Township. Marine patrol officers were also out on the water. Some had expected a surge in complaints about private property owners putting on their own personal pyrotechnic shows, there was only one call in the 24-hour period which fit the bill. At 10:44 p.m., Tuesday county dispatchers received a call from someone in Leland, reporting that their neighbors were lighting fireworks and they were afraid their house would catch on fire. Actually, there was more friction documented over the holiday between private property owners and people here to have fun in Leelanau County. Wednesday afternoon a private

property owner in Centerville Township called to report that a pontoon carrying six -to-eight occupant had pulled up on private property near Kelenski Point in Centerville Township and trespassed. The boaters were advised about their misdeed. Elsewhere, in Suttons Bay Township, a property owner north of the village called the Sheriff’s Department to report that their neighbor is using her home as a short-term rental and is violating the township and health regulations. At least three fights were reported to the county Sheriff’s Department over

Tickets for underage drinking and a charge of resisting and obstructing an officer came following a complaint of a “loud party” Saturday morning in Elmwood Township. Deputies were dispatched about 2:35 Saturday morning to a home on Timberwoods Drive where callers heard a party and fighting. Upon arrival, they discovered an underage drinking party underway. Deputies issued four tickets for drinking to youths 16 and younger, and four more tickets for alcohol consumption to subjects between 17 and 20 years old, Undersheriff Scott Wooters said. The ticket recipients were from Traverse City, Interlochen, Elmwood Township and Florida, according to reports.

Visitation up 58% in 2012

The June numbers are in for visitation at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, and they continued a record-setting trend. The National Lakeshore attracted 257,000 visitors in June. The previous record for June was 199,000, said Tom Ulrich, deputy superintendent of the National Lakeshore. “They were immense,” Ulrich said of June’s numbers. “Our June was by far the record highest June ever.” So far some 400,000 people have visited the Lakeshore. That’s a 58 percent jump from last year, Ulrich said, though last year’s numbers were low for the first half of the year due to cold and rainy weather. The Lakeshore did set a record for the last half of the year, from July through December, though low numbers for January through June prevented the park from breaking the record set in 1999, when 1.35 million people

visited. If the pace continues for this year, Ulrich said, the park could attract a total of 1.5 million visitors for this year — and set an all-time record. Though no new employees have been added, Ulrich said park attendants are still emptying the trash cans and cleaning the bathrooms daily. “We don’t have the luxury of being

able to add extra staff,” he said, as the federally-funded park has a fixed budget. “We are prepared to serve our visitors, whether there are 1.1 million or 1.4 million visitors. It may be a little more crowded and it may be a little harder to find a parking spot. But people will still have a great time.”

Midweek Fourth sparkles Continued from Page 1 dance may have jumped a bit from 2011 — which was one of the best attended ever. In 2011, the Fourth of July fell on a Monday. While the Fourth is traditionally the busiest week of the summer, this year was a lot busier than last year, said Ewing, who has owned the market with her husband since 2000. And business is showing no signs of slowing down. “I think the second part of the week is going to be even bigger, but we’ve already had a great week,” she said. Robert Stephenson, owner of the Red Lion Motor Lodge, on M-22 in Suttons Bay, said 2012 might just be the biggest he’s seen in the nine years he has owned the 19-room motel. As for the Fourth falling on a Wednesday? “We were more than full,” Stephenson said. “I fielded all kinds of phone calls for rooms I don’t have. It’s been kind of exceptional.” If someone shows up without a reservation and needs a room, he also makes calls to other places in the county to see if there are any rooms to be had. “A lot of them don’t because if we’re full, they’re full,” he said. “So then we have to send them back to Traverse City. There’s more than 3,500 rooms there. Hopefully they can find one.” Stephenson’s best advice? Make a reservation substantially in advance — weeks or even months ahead, not just a

At the Leelanau State Park in Leelanau Township there are just a few campsites currently open and Say Dearing, a summer ranger, expects them to fill by the weekend. While the vast majority of visitors to the park call ahead for a reservation for one of the park’s 52 rustic campsites, an occasional camper sometimes shows up without calling first. For those people, campground

employees will call around to find open spots somewhere else. “We always try to find a place for someone,” said Dearing, who is working her second summer at the park. “We basically make sure they have a place to sleep for the night.” People can reserve prime spots up to six months in advance, though most usually call a day ahead, she said. “The further ahead you reserve, the better campsite you get,” Dearing said.

Preschool tax off the table Continued from Page 1 But the proposal ran into a legal snag when reviewed by attorney David G. Stoker, whose law firm Cohl, Stoker & Toskey represents the county. “The county does not have authority to run such an education program, and thus would not be authorized to either levy a tax for that purpose or expend county tax dollars for such a purpose,” Stoker wrote in a shortened legal opinion. He is working on a more extensive opinion for the County Board, according to county administrator Chet Janik. Janik, who retired as superintendent of Charlevoix schools earlier this year to work for Leelanau County, said the proposal has been withdrawn from the agenda of the County Board’s “executive committee” meeting set for Tuesday. “There are serious concerns about the legality of the proposal as it’s currently structured,” Janik said. “The board and I had questions about the

finances and structure. But the group has not officially made the decision whether they are going forward or not, and they have not provided any structure to the County Board yet.” Commissioner Melinda Lautner was critical of a plan to levy a tax to pay for preschool when the early education group made a presentation seeking a county-wide millage at the June 12 commissioners’ meeting. Documents provided by the group indicated that a .52 property tax would be needed to implement their plan. Lautner, however, said the extra tax would drive away rather than attract young families to Leelanau County. Her mind has not changed. “You could have young families moving into our county in droves for free early education ... for free everything. But we can’t afford all of that,” she said Thursday morning. She added that such a program should have never been brought before

the County Board, saying it “should be a function of schools.” The responsibility for child rearing, she continued, should remain with parents. “In the bigger picture, this is going after the symptom and not the cause. They’ve kind of thrown their hands up and said parents can’t take care of their kids, so we’ll take care of them for you,” she said. “I understand their passion for what they want to do, but that is not the solution.” Marshall said members of the LECDC remain passionate about early childhood education. He does not expect their efforts to wane with news that the group cannot work through the county to achieve its goals. “There are a lot of ways to skin this cat, and it’s a cat that needs to be skinned,” he said.

Marina parking Continued from Page 1 explained, “but there’s no telling when the federal appeals court will rule on Brown Bark’s appeal or how they will rule. In the meantime, TCLP needs to protect its interests.” The Elmwood Township Board held a special meeting last week to finalize its deal to purchase the Brewery Creek property from Brown Bark. Kelly began the June 27 special meeting by announcing that he had just been in a conference call with attorneys associated with the case, and was hopeful that issues related to TCLP’s lien on the property would be resolved in time to meet a June 30 target for closing the deal. As of this week, however, the issue remained unresolved — and the deal has been postponed for an unknown period. Elmwood Township already has a signed purchase agreement with Brown Bark that requires the Texasbased mortgage speculators to follow through with the deal once Elmwood Township officials sign closing documents. The township board earlier this year approved the purchase agreement pending an extensive “due diligence” effort to uncover any additional information about the property. One of the items uncovered in a detailed search of records showed that the township stood to receive not only the five acres it expected to acquire for use as a parking lot, but also a 91-percent interest in undeveloped common areas — a much better deal than originally anticipated. If the township does acquire the property, it will also become the “successor developer” of the property and may sell off much of the property in the future, possibly y at a substantial profit. In addition, the property also includes a 100-foot easement connecting it to the nearby Leelanau Trail. The township could pay off the lien and go through with the sale, but that’s something township officials have deemed unacceptable. The township plans to use money in its Marina Fund to pay for the property. Money in the Marina Fund comes entirely from marina user fees — not from property taxes or the township’s general fund.

Although the township has more than enough cash in its Marina Fund to pay the $385,000 it would owe on the property, the board decided last week that it would finance the purchase over a seven-year period through Huntington Bank at an interest rate of 2.5-percent. Township officials had solicited bids from several financial institutions. “With interest rates so low, it’s almost stupid to pay cash,” said trustee Terry Lautner. Supervisor Kelly agreed, and noted that keeping more cash in the Marina Fund would allow the township to leverage more matching funds for grants it hopes to receive to improve the township marina. In a 5-1 vote, with trustee Don Gallagher opposed and trustee Dave Darga absent, the board authorized Kelly to sign closing documents for the purchase pending resolution of the TCLP lien issue. That issue remained unresolved, however. Also in a 5-1 vote, with Gallagher opposed and Darga absent, the board approved the proposed 7-year financing deal with Huntington Bank. Darga did not attend the meeting because he has an acknowledged conflict of interest in the issue as an adjacent property owner in the boat storage business. Gallagher said he opposes the deal because he believes it will result only in the township providing another parking lot for neighboring Traverse City. “I look at this as fostering economic development in our township,” Elmwood Township clerk Connie Preston said, “and I hope we can make this deal happen soon.” Back in 2002, developer Devereau Trepp and real estate agent Ted Lockwood envisioned a “village center” project of about 20 shops and office suites on the 15-acre property, with several acres left open near Brewery Creek. Their development company went belly up in 2005 before mortgages on the property were acquired by Brown Bark. Only a few of the lots in the project were sold. One building near the entrance to the property is owned and occupied by a Subway store and the Shaw Chiropractic Center. The other building in the development is owned by the Korner Gem jewelry and rare stone business.

Health director demoted Continued from Page 1 who investigated the complaint. Minutes of the meeting, which was not attended by an Enterprise reporter, go into detail about some of the allegations. The minutes state that board members discussed excessive personal contact that included Crawford: • Waiting in his car until the female employee arrived for work and then walking near her into the office while attempting to engage her in conversation. • Following the female employee to her car at the end of the work day while attempting to engage her in conversation. • Leaving his work area to have direct, close contact with the female “almost every time” she was in the coffee area —at least once while a conference call was in progress, during clinics, during meetings in which the employee was a participant and in the employee’s work area. According to minutes, the personal contact behavior was observed by every employee interviewed as part of the investigation. Those interviewed described the behavior as “obsessive … and very obvious.” During conversations with a number of female employees, it was learned that Crawford has stared or “focused his gaze” on the chest area of those female employees. The behavior took place on nearly a daily basis and was “far more than a random occurrence.” The health board found that although Crawford may not have intended for his behavior to create a

hostile work environment, he failed to recognize how female employees could perceive his actions as “unsatisfactory” from an executive leader. The consequences of the failure were magnified in a small workforce with a large number of female employees. When contacted by phone today, Crawford offered no comment. Meeting minutes indicate he regrets the decisions made by the board and that he believed he could move forward in a leadership position. The demotion will cut Crawford’s compensation by nearly half. As health officer, his salary was $78,412. As a sanitarian, he will be paid $39,702 per year. In addition to the demotion, Crawford was ordered to complete counseling as directed by the personnel committee. A letter of reprimand will be placed in his file and a monitoring program will be establish to ensure Crawford’s behavior is acceptable. He will be required to sign a corrective action plan drawn up by the new health officer, personnel committee and board attorney Graham. Jenifer Murray, personal health director, was appointed to serve as interim health officer. She was scheduled to meet yesterday afternoon with several board members to discuss the process of finding a new health officer. Crawford worked for the Tri-County Health Department from June 1976 through Oct. 1, 1996 when the BenzieLeelanau District Health Department was formed. He was appointed health officer on Jan. 1, 1999.

SWEET cherry pickers By Corey L. Frost Enterprise intern

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

NANO LOPEZ, a migrant worker from Texas, dumps his pail of sweet cherries into a lug at Bardenhagen Farms Monday.

Cherry crops have seen better days, but that hasn’t stopped Jim Bardenhagen from filling as many orders as possible. It’s just taking a little extra effort this year. “We want to get the same quality to our markets as we have in the past,” Bardenhagen said. “But that quality just isn’t on the trees.” Erratic and cold spring temperatures took a major toll on the yield and will definitely cut the season short. while it drove prices up, many would agree that a Leelanau summer without sweets and tarts, well, just isn’t summer. I was able to spend some time with Jim and other members of the Bardenhagen farm, watching the process from tree to market and lending a hand where I could. I learned very quickly that keen attention to detail is required at all stages of harvesting the small, round fruit. My first day at the farm focused on the processes after after picking. When I arrived, a crew of seven was lined up along a conveyor belt flashing their hands back and forth to remove any undesirable pieces. “We take the lugs from the orchards and run them down the belt,” Bardenhagen said. “We’re basically looking for any imperfections like cracks or bacterial cankers and making sure they don’t get into the lugs we send to the store.” After spending some time with the sorting crew, Jim and I took one of the farm’s white delivery vans to Hansen Foods in Suttons Bay to complete an order. We brought five lugs with us. Though Bardenhagen Farms sends much more downstate, Jim feels that shouldn’t be the top priority. “Our main focus is to get fresh produce into the local stores,” he said. “If there’s no need for it at the local level, we’ll send them downstate to get packaged and shipped, but we want to reach our local market first.” One of the biggest concerns locally has been the price. It’s the simple rule of supply and demand, and though the demand for the local staple remains fairly unaltered, supply is far below average. “Only about 10 percent of the sweet cherry crop can be harvested,” Bardenhagen said. “It really var-

MULTIPLE HANDS make sure blemished cherries are removed before they’re sent to market. ies by tree, but normally we get about eight to ten lugs per tree. “This year though, we’ve been lucky to get half to one.” According to Bardenhagen, the largest portion of the price increase is due to labor. Handpicking and sorting undesirable cherries has slowed the process, requiring more hours than normal. Some varieties fared a little better, but others were lost almost entirely. The Sam variety of sweet cherry is among those that were a bit more resistant, yielding between two and three lugs per tree. Tart cherries are in jeopardy though, as most varieties fell below a 10 percent crop yield and won’t be harvested. “We will have some Balatons,” Bardenhagen said. “It’s a very small crop, but we’re going to harvest as much of it as we can.” I was able to get my hands a little dirtier the second day. When I arrived at Bardenhagen’s the conveyor was quiet, but work wasn’t in short supply. Pulling in behind me was a truck picking up lugs


Cherries trucked to processors

Light cherry harvest over quickly By Alan Campbell of the Enterprise staff

Cherry harvest was short and sweet with no hint of tart for the Coldwell family of Leland Township. Janice Dearing of Northport had been waiting. She stopped into the Coldwell farm market, and found sweet cherries selling for $4.50 a quart. “We were surprised because we had heard they were selling for $5 to $8 a quarter,” said Dearing, who was fruit shopping with her daughter Fay. Although the price was well above that paid most years, the Dearings are not about to skip a cherry season. “I may not eat as many, but I’m still going to have some,” said Fay. On the hillside above the farm market at the corner of Eagle Highway and Alpers Road, the Coldwell family — some nine members, including “the boss” 22-month-old Ruby Popp — was reflecting on the harvest as their last truckload of sweets left the farm for the Leelanau Fruit Company.

Fruit growers are accustomed to competing with apples grown in the state of Washington. But cherries? One county fruit processor, mindful of finding a supply of cherries to meet the needs of strengthening demand from consumers, has already received three semi-truck shipments of cherries from Washington. Glenn LaCross, owner of Leelanau Fruit Company located just south of Suttons Bay, has made arrangements to bring “millions” of pounds of cherries across the country to be processed in Leelanau County. “West of the Mississippi fared well, very well. Most of our apples will come from the West, as well as our cherries. So we’ll wear out a lot of tires getting our product to our users,” said LaCross. The cherry harvest in Leelanau County — and across the state — is turning out to be a small percentage of a normal season. LaCross said a few sweet cherry orchards yielded crops, while tarts are even harder to find. “It’s kind of orchard-by-orchard. Up by Northport we are finding a few cherries, so our Northport growers will have a few. We won’t know for sure until we (Concluded on Page 11)

Popp, public relations coordinator for the school. On Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. parish and school families, who host the event, will serve up chicken grilled on an open pit on school grounds, as well as mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, stuffing and pie. The cost is $13 for adults, $8 for children 4-11 years of age, and free for children 3 and under. Money raised at the event, with about 1,800 chicken dinners served every year, supports operating costs of the school. In past years up to $35,000 has been raised, Popp said. And it’s not just about the food. Local artist Fred Petroskey will be on hand at the event at 12:30 p.m. in the school lobby to talk about his painting that is based on the school’s religious sisters. A graduate of the Class of 1952, Petroskey did the original oil painting in 1994. Petroskey has donated his image to produce three renditions of his painting measuring 15.5 inches by 24 inches in celebration of the 125th Anniversary of St. Mary School, the first of which will be on hand for viewing. People can also find out how they can own one of the limited edition prints. There will also still be the usual games for younger children, such as the bounce house, the baseball throw

for older children, and the poker and black jack tents for adults. But this year several activities for middle and high school students have been added, Popp said. Students that age have complained in the past that there wasn’t enough stuff for them to do, she said. New activities include a 30-foot inflatable rock-climbing wall, a 20foot square jousting tent and a dunk tank. In addition, this year $10 arm bands will be sold for some of the games so they kids can pay one price and play all day long. The bingo tent will also be giving away some great prizes, all of which have been donated. Bingo cards are 25 cents each and winners can walk away with an inflatable swimming pool, camping chairs, fans and household and garden goods. The St. Mary Parish Quilters will be on hand once again to show people how old-fashioned hand quilted blankets are made. Quilts will be for sale, and quilts will be raffled off throughout the day, about one per hour. The quilters have always been a mainstay at the event and have raised a lot of money for the school throughout the years, Popp said. There is also the country store, where handmade items can be purchased.

Eight Leelanau County 4-H students have been awarded grants from the Traverse City State Bank. Forty students from Grand Traverse, Leelanau and Benzie counties applied for the grants. Eleven students were selected to receive the grants — eight from Leelanau County. The funds are to be used by students to help with such as the cost of raising farm animals swine, sheep, turkeys and cattle for the Northwest Michigan Fair. Expenses include feed, medicine and veterinary services. “This is our way to encourage and support the entrepreneurial spirit of the 4-H young people,” said Connie Deneweth, president and CEO of the Traverse City State Bank. “They

get the experience of applying, interviewing and ‘selling’ themselves and their cause. For many, it’s their first encounter with conducting an interview.” The bank’s involvement continues after the grants have been awarded. “They stay in touch with us during the summer and keep up apprised of their project,” Deneweth said. Grant recipients from Leelanau County are: • Skylar Gleason and Jolene Therrien — swine • Granite Winowiecki, Collin Oosse and Heather Swinney — sheep • Brittany Hobbins and Kyle Barker — turkey • Nicholas Schweikart — steer.

No business in five-minute BPW meeting The county Board of Public Works (BPW) met for just five minutes Tuesday for its second quarterly meeting of 2012. There was no business on the agenda — only correspondence which included the minutes from the Northport-Leelanau Township Utilities Authority for April 17 and June 19. The board also acknowledged a copy of a “white paper” on the Northport Wind Turbine Project prepared by the Citizens “WTG Study Group.” Board members agreed to file the paper as correspondence but noted they have nothing to do with the project. “It’s been the Village of Northport and a citizen’s group,” BPW chairman Lee Bowen said. The third quarterly meeting of 2012 will be held on Oct. 2.

Nightly Dinner Specials


ROSE O’NEILL, of Suttons Bay, is a 57-year-old operations manager with Business Credentialing Services Inc.

A need to get the word out to voters about the township fire/rescue millage was discussed this week by the Kasson Township Board. During Monday’s monthly meeting the board discussed its request for a 3/4-mill levy to support fire and rescue services. The board voted in May to seek the extra-voted millage. The proposal will be on the Aug. 7 Primary ballot. Kasson contracts with the Cedar Fire Department, which is operated jointly by Solon and Centerville Townships. This year, the standby contract cost is $75,000, up from $60,000 in 201112, plus an additional $6,000 for fire calls. The total represents more than a third of the township’s budgeted expenditures for 2012-13. If approved in the Primary election, the three-year request would generate $64,000 when collected in December, Clerk Kathlyn Feys said. Kasson is the only township in the county without a millage to support fire and rescue services. In other business during the meeting, chaired by Trustee Roger Noonan, the board agreed to sponsor the Maple City Car Show, held annually on the third Sunday in August. Noonan chaired the meeting in the absence of Supervisor Fred Lanham who is recuperating after hip-replacement surgery.

G-L Board adopts new school budget transportation bond this spring. “Money from fund balance will help cover the cost of software, which aren’t allowed with the tech bond revenue,” Groening said. An estimated $7 million is identified for basic programs and support services, up about $100,000 from last year. Operations has a price tag of $3.3 million, up $300,000 from last year. This includes $914,913 for operations/ maintenance, up 14.7 percent from 1112; $613.925 for school administration; $650,486 for general administration; $561,980 for transportation and $431,721 for athletics. The expected fund balance at the end of the school year is $1 million, according to the budget. In other business during the final meeting of the 2011-12 school year the board approved the hiring of three new teachers who are replacing staff members who retired or resigned. They are: Lisa Migazzi, fourth grade; Matthew Soltysiak, high school Spanish; and choir/music Ashley Larimer.

Glen Arbor art group offers beginner’s classes The Glen Arbor Art Association (GAAA) will offer a number of classes this summer for beginning students. With much one-on-one attention, students learn how to hold a brush, draw the human body, or how to mix colors from outstanding artists and teachers. An introduction to oil painting will be offered Monday, July 16 and Tuesday, July 17. Joe Lombardo, a professor at the Columbus College of Art and Design, will expose students to the basics of oil painting: vocabulary, materials and techniques. This class will cover brushwork, basic color theory and design. Paints are provided. Lombardo’s work will also be shown July 20-26 at Center Gallery in Glen Arbor. For those interested in drawing the human figure, the GAAA is offering

“Figure! Something for Everyone” July 23-25. Mary Guntzviller will teach the class which uses live models. Day one introduces the human figure through gesture drawing and flowing lines. Two days of portraiture follow. Charcoal and newsprint are provided. Another class designed for beginners, an “Introduction to Pastels” is slated for Aug. 6-8. Award-winning artist Mary Fuscaldo will lead the class in the introduction to new pastels, underpainting, blending, framing and the instant gratification of applying pure pigment to paper for vibrant, beautiful paintings. This class will concentrate on those new to pastels, but with some experience in other mediums. A complete list of programs in available at, or by calling 334-6112.

Revenue totaling $7.6 million was identified in the 2012-13 budget adopted last week by the Glen Lake Board of Education. The board adopted the spending plan for the budget year which began Sunday during a special meeting June 27. For the sixth consecutive year, board members considered budget parameters that did not include revenue in the form of state per-pupil foundation allowance. Due to the high property value of acreage within the school district and a decline in numbers, Glen Lake went from “in formula” to “out of formula,” a few years ago, essentially reducing the impact of enrollment on the budget and its dependency on state funding for operations. Local property taxes on non-homestead, non-qualified Agricultural property are expected to generate $6,822,355, up about $600 from last year based again on a millage of 15.0696. The revenue side of the budget also

includes $264,411 in state aid; $49,620 in athletic receipts; $338,049 in state categoricals; and $94,485 in special education millage collected by the Intermediate School District. Total expenses for the coming school year are $10.41 million, according to the new budget. The difference between revenue and expenditures will be balanced with $2, 712,135 from the district’s $3.7 million fund balance. Also, no revenues from federal Impact Aid were included in the budget, a source that provided the district about $1 million annually over the last five years. “The district's policy is to be conservative and not plan on federal Impact Aid,” Superintendent Joan Groening said. “We receive it one year and earmark it for expenditures in the next fiscal year.” Much of the transfer will go toward the purchase of software and curricular applications for the across-the-board implementation of a new technology program.

Promise to Northport kids paying off SAVOR SUMMER! Since the first six Northport Promise Scholarships were given out to the Class of 2008, a total of 34 scholarships worth $131,500 have been given out to graduates of Northport Public School. The Northport Promise gives district graduates up to $2,000 per year for four years. Like Basil Stowe, 22, who received $2,000 for each of the two years he spent at Northwestern Michigan College before joining the Coast Guard last year. “It helped a lot,” Stowe, a 2008 graduate of Northport School, said of the scholarship. “Without the scholarship to help all of us, many of us wouldn’t have been able to do the things we are doing.” Stowe had planned to go into mechanical engineering, but then got interested in the aviation program. He was learning to fly planes when he ran out of money, as flight time is very expensive, he said. Stowe is currently stationed in Galveston, Texas. He hopes to get into the Coast Guard’s Avionics Electrical Technician program in November and eventually

Reverse Mortgage If you are 62 or older, a Reverse Mortgage allows you to:

• Retain ownership of your home. All remaining equity stays with your heirs! • Make no monthly payments, and no repayment is due unless you sell or vacate your home • Use your home’s equity for any purpose you choose, such as: supplementing monthly income, in-home health care, medications, travel, offset investment losses, home improvements, paying off debt — It’s your money, you decide!

transfer to the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station in Traverse City. And in six years he’ll return to college on the G.I. Bill, he said. The Northport Promise is modeled after the Kalamazoo Promise, which has been in existence since 2005. There is one difference, said Ruth Steele-Walker, chair of the Northport Promise board. “We don’t have an angel for the Promise,” she said. “We earn money with garage sales and bake sales and raffles.” Several money-making events are held throughout the year, including the chili cook-off held every February, the Northport Follies talent show held every spring, and craft fairs and farmers markets held all summer long. The scholarship depends so much on fund-raising, Steele-Walker said, that a new rule was put in place this year for future recipients. Students, or their parents, guardians or family friends, must participate in a minimum of three fundraisers per year, whether that’s baking something for the farm market held during the summer or making a quilt for the craft fair. Under the new system, students and their supporters will earn participation points; by the time they graduate they will have to have earned at least 100 points to get a full scholarship, SteeleWalker said. “It gets more families and kids helping and that’s a positive thing,” Steele-Walker said. “And they’re finding out that it’s a lot of fun to get involved in these things. Yes, it’s work, but it’s a lot of fun, too.” Board members also felt that it was important that students and families participate in the whole process, she said. “Like anything else, if you have to work for it, it’s more meaningful.” Stowe said the new rule is a good idea, as some students work hard and help out with every event while others slack off. “They all get the same amount of money, no matter how much they do,” he said, which doesn’t really seem fair. The Northport Promise came about in 2007 as an attempt by the community to not only support the school and its students, but to attract families to Northport, Steele-Walker said.

“Northport’s had some tough times and it’s had some good times,” she said. “But one thing people in Northport have always been in support of is this school system Students who have gone to Northport Public School since kindergarten are eligible to receive $2,000 in Promise scholarship money for each of four years. If a student has attended for less than 13 years the scholarship is prorated, though graduates have to have been students in the district for a minimum of four years. The scholarship can be used at any public university, community college or vocational school in Michigan. Students must be full-time, taking at least 12 credits per term. They must also maintain a grade point average of 2.0, though if their grades fall they have a probationary period in which to get them back up and can have the scholarship reinstated. For students, the scholarship has another non-financial benefit, SteeleWalker said. That’s the fact that they know the community is standing behind them, she said. For many who never thought they would go to college, that’s a good feeling, she said.

Northport benefit concert to aid LCC The Northport Lions Club will hold a benefit concert featuring the “Back Room Gang” to raise money for the Leelanau Children’s Center.

Suttons Bay’s bad water found during routine testing Routine testing of the Village of Suttons Bay’s water supply last week revealed potential contamination that required village residents to either boil their water or avoid consuming it for nearly four days. “We certainly recognize what an inconvenience this was to village residents and, especially, a number of businesses in the village,” village manager Wally Delamater said. “But I’m happy to report the problem has been resolved and our water supply remains perfectly safe.” The “boil water notice” affected roughly 500 residents, according to village officials, as well as an unknown number of restaurant patrons who were required to drink bottled water rather than village tap water. “It was an inconvenience,” said Janet Alpers, manager of Boone’s Prime Time Pub and restaurant in downtown Suttons Bay. “In addition to serving bottled water, we also had to serve bottled pop, and we had to buy ice rather than make our own.” An employee at Martha’s Leelanau Table, just up M-22 from Boone’s, noted

that regular coffee could not be served at the restaurant, and that only espresso coffee was allowed during the period the “boil water” notice was in effect. Espresso coffee is made at a much higher temperature than regular coffee. Ben Hursh, the village’s water department manager, explained that his department is required by state law to take samples from its wells and its distribution system on a regular basis, and act according to state protocols if any “positive” readings are taken. “On June 27, during this routine sampling, traces of coliform bacteria were found in two distribution sampling sites which in turn put us over the limit for ‘positive’ samples, and a ‘Boil Water’ notice was issued by the Department of Environmental Quality and the Suttons Bay Water Department,” he said. Coliforms are bacteria that naturally occur in the soil, waterways and other aspects of the environment, and are used as an indicator of the possibility that other bacteria may be present, Hursh said. Village officials acknowledged this week that notification of some village residents and major users of village water did not go as quickly or smoothly as they would have liked. “We need to do a better job of getting

all the right phone numbers ahead of time and informing the right people in a timely manner,” Delamater said, “and we’re working on that.” As for the water system itself, Hursh said, disinfection began immediately. Low doses of chlorine, about one partper million, were introduced to a storage tank and distribution system. Fire hydrants were flushed to draw the chlorine to the end of the lines to ensure the entire system was being disinfected, Hursh explained. State law requires a 24-hour waiting period between water flushing and chlorination, and requires that the process be undertaken at least twice before the “boil water” notice is lifted. “Well samples were taken Wednesday (June 27), the first 24-hour chlorination period began on Thursday, and five distribution samples were taken on Friday and Saturday — both showing “nondetection” of any contamination — before the notice was lifted Sunday morning. Notifications went out via email and phone, and village staff spent as much as six hours going door-to-door throughout the village notifying residents of the problem the day it was detected, Delamater said.

the tax forfeiture process was halted when Suttons Pointe declared bankruptcy in 2010. Phase II of the BayView project, known as Leelanau Hills, was the subject of tax forfeiture earlier this year. Several uncompleted homes and dozens of vacant residential lots up Scott Hill Road north of M-204 are now the property of Leelanau County. The county’s Brownfield Redevelopment Authority and Land Bank Authority are currently considering what to do with that property. The BayView condos, located along the Suttons Bay waterfront off M-22 north of M-204, are partially occupied, however. Phase I of BayView was intended to be a “mixed use” project consisting of four office units and 68 luxury waterfront residential units with initial listing prices of between $560,000 and $750,000. Only 28 units were sold; about 15 more were constructed but not sold; and the remainder have yet to be built. In addition, common areas and other amenities associated with the development remain uncompleted. Also unresolved is the status of a lease between Suttons Point Development and the State of Michigan for use of Lake Michigan bottomlands as a marina directly in front of the condos.

A lengthy and complex federal bankruptcy court case to decide the fate of the BayView condos in the Village of Suttons Bay continued to grind on last week in Flint. Attorneys associated with the case declined to speak on the record, however. Another hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday, July 25. During a hearing on June 25, Federal Bankruptcy Court Judge Daniel J. Opperman denied a motion by bankruptcy court trustee Colleen K. Corcoran to sell most of the BayView property to an Oklahoma-based mortgage speculation firm known as Flathead Michigan I, L.L.C. Flathead acquired about $2.6 million in mortgage notes on the property from

Fifth Third Bank in 2007 but has yet to foreclose on Suttons Pointe Development, L.L.C., the now-bankrupt company that nominally still owns unsold and unbuilt condos in the development. Another major mortgage holder, First Place Bank, based downstate, has already settled its bankruptcy court claims on BayView. At issue is whether Flathead will become the “successor developer” to Suttons Pointe. The BayView Condominium Homeowners Association, a third party in the case, claims that Flathead should be required to become the “successor developer” and be required to complete the development as well as pay off the millions of dollars in liens still owed by Suttons Pointe Development. The bankruptcy court trustee’s proposal to sell the property to Flathead for what is owed on the mortgages was rejected by the court last week. The trustee had also moved that Flathead not be required to become the “successor developer” — a move the BayView Condo Homeowners Association is challenging. Also unpaid are summer and winter property taxes from 2007 through this year, totaling nearly $250,000. Although some taxes are more than three years old, no tax forfeiture has occurred because

If you are in the minority of golfers that don’t carry a hybrid club or two, let me tell you what you’re missing. By definition, a hybrid is a cross between a fairway wood and an iron. By design, the hybrid club has a wider sole and a lower center of gravity. This makes for a more solid strike and higher ball flight. In simple terms, it is just easier to hit good shots.


olfW 7-5-12

Hybrid clubs initially were used as an alternative to long irons, such as the #2, #3 or #4. Now there are complete sets of hybrids. Many hybrid clubs are not numbered but are identified by loft in degrees. The procedure is to decide which clubs are going to be replaced with hybrids. Then find the distance of your lowest iron, say it’s a 5 iron and you hit it 160 yards, you would want to find a hybrid iron that gets you 170-175 yards. Maybe it’s a 23 degree hybrid. Next you want to hit maybe a 19 degree hybrid that gets you about 180-185 yards. And so on until you fill the gap between your shortest fairway wood distance. When you see so many tour pros and top amateurs using hybrids instead of long irons it’s hard to imagine anyone without at least one or two in their bag.

Elmwood Township’s Greilickville Commercial Corridor Task Force met last Thursday to discuss a proposed traffic study and methods the Michigan Department of Transportation will use to take traffic counts at various locations in the township beginning later this month. Township supervisor Jack Kelly said the traffic study will likely begin in the last week of July, and motorists will notice traffic count sensors, similar to rubber hoses, placed across M-22 (S. West Bayshore Drive) and elsewhere for about a week. He said automated traffic counts would also be conducted on nearby Cherry Bend Road, Carter Road and Grandview Parkway. In addition, volunteers and township employees were expected to conduct manual traffic counts in the vicinity of the Great Lakes Discovery Center, the Centerpointe Building, the township marina, and the township’s Greilickville Harbor Park. “This study will be done after the National Cherry Festival but before the Traverse City Film Festival – between the two events, so we can get a more accurate count during ‘normal’ summer traffic periods,” Kelly explained. At a special meeting last week, the Elmwood Township Board also endorsed an application for $35,000 in 2-percent casino revenue funding from the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians to conduct a second traffic study sometime this fall. Traffic studies along the M-22 corridor and in other nearby roads in the vicinity of the township marina on West Grand Traverse Bay were called for in a new Marina Master Plan, completed last year. Township officials will use the traffic data to determine where new entrances and exits to the marina might be located. In addition, the township is seeking to acquire the former Brewery Creek property directly across M-22 from the Grelickville Harbor Park and the marina for use as a parking lot, and the traffic study will be required to understand how best to utilize that property, Kelly explained. The traffic study will also provide information that may benefit numerous businesses and other organizations based in the neighborhood.

The parking lot would have been open for the Fourth of July if not for heavy rain Tuesday morning, which put off painting until after the holiday. — by Alan Campbell

Sailboat OK after washing ashore A 34-foot sailboat moored off Van’s Beach in Leland broke free during a thunderstorm early Tuesday morning, and washed ashore. The boat made a relatively soft landing on the sandy Lake Michigan beach some time around 2:30 a.m., and was not damaged. No one was injured, added Leland harbor master Russell Dzuba. “(The boat’s owner) called us first thing, and we called a tug to come down from Charlevoix,” said Dzuba. “He had a long day.”

There’s been some falloff in slip rentals, but not a dramatic drop, resulting from a steep increase in overnight fees at the Leland Harbor. The Leland Township Board before the season increased slip rates by more than 50 percent, from $1.25 to $2.00 a foot. The new fee schedule was budgeted to bring in an additional $50,000 in revenue from boaters, jumping from $125,000 in the 2011 budget to $175,000 in 2012. “I’ve had people abbreviate their stays because of it,” reported Leland Township harbor master Russell Dzuba. “Boaters from Wisconsin and Chicago are already use to paying that amount. Here, in essence, we run a socialized harbor because the state’s so heavily involved. A group from Boyne City pulled their plug and said, ‘You’re charging too much money.’” Many public harbors in Michigan have been subsidized through state grants in some form, which require them to adhere to a slip payment schedule created by the Michigan Waterways Commission. The state gave permission for Leland to increase its fees to the highest level allowed. That gives Leland the distinction of charging more per slip than all other public harbors that fall under the Waterways Commission’s jurisdiction, Dzuba said. For instance, a 40-foot boat spending a night in the Elmwood Township Marina would pay $50, according to a fee schedule posted online. The cost would be $80 in Leland, which unlike other harbors in Leelanau County only offers transient slips. Will boaters pay that much more to spend the night near Fishtown? “New facility. First class destination. Yea,” Dzuba said. The harbor has been rebuilt over several years, with the final vestiges of work — landscaping — expected to be concluded this month. Extra funds from slips were needed to offset the cost of dredging the mouth of the harbor in the spring because federal funding was unavailable. It cost $175,000 to remove sediment that had accumulated to the point of nearly blocking the harbor entrance. In other Leland Harbor news, a rebuilt and enlarged boat launch did not open on Friday, as Dzuba predicted it would. Instead, the first boats launched Monday evening. Tony Divergilio, who has visited Leland from West Bloomfield for the past 35 years, was impressed. He fought through a busy construction zone to launch a fishing boat on Tuesday afternoon. “It’s a huge improvement because

In all there are 98 parking spots at the Empire Beach park, which was built in 2005 with a grant from the Michigan National Resources Trust Fund at a cost of about $500,000. Five of those spots are strictly for vehicles with trailers; cars without trailers parked in those areas will get a $75 ticket, according to a new fee schedule recently approved by the village. In addition, beach-goers parked in a fire lane will get a $100 ticket, and illegally parked cars with boats and or trailers will pay a $75 fee. Payment said five spots for people with boats is adequate as the beach, with its low water levels, is not a good place to put in a boat. There are just under 400 residents in Empire Township, Payment said. “As you can see there is not enough parking for our residents, let alone the world that is coming to our beach,” Payment said. And there never will be enough parking space. “We will have to spend two or three months out of the year accepting that fact,” she said. She just hopes guests will understand that they may have to do a little walking, she said. Friend agrees. “There’s always going to be a shortage of parking, no matter how much parking you provide,” Friend said. “You could have 300 parking spots and it would always fill up.”


runs down that stretch,” Friend said. The trees have been there for about 20 years, and when cars park under them it compacts the root systems and could cause them to die earlier. People also park around the pump house, which is located near the Storm Hill subdivision, and a large rock was placed near there to keep cars away. About 40 parking spots have been opened up at Johnson’s Park, located at the top of the hill at Lake and Niagara streets. The Lions Club, which owns the park, is allowing the park to be used for parking for the busy beach on a one-year temporary basis. Parking is free, though a donation box has been placed at the park. The plan will be reevaluated at the end of the year, said Linda Payment, village board trustee. “I think it’s working so far this year, as long as we have an attendant,” Payment said.


About 40 parking spots have been added at the Lake Michigan Beach Park in Empire, and a dozen benches and several no parking signs have been placed in strategic areas in a plan meant to get people parking in the right places. Empire village has also hired a beach attendant to patrol parking at the beach and is looking to hire another. Perry Johnson, a teacher in Traverse City, started about two weeks ago and has already been busy writing tickets, said Darlene Friend, deputy clerk for Empire Village. “The new guy is excellent, and very likable,” Friend said. If Johnson sees someone who is attempting to park in a space that’s not for parking, he’ll politely let them know they can’t park there, Friend said.

But if he sees cars who ignore the ‘no parking’ signs, he gets the ticket book out; parking in an undesignated spot will cost a driver $50. “He will write tickets if push comes to shove,” Friend said. Johnson is working out so well, the village would like to hire a second attendant. That way there will be two people patrolling the parking on Friday, Saturday and Sunday — the park’s busiest days — and one each for Monday through Thursday. Both attendants will work about four to five hours per day, Friend said. Parking has been a problem at the popular beach for several years. Four new ‘no parking’ signs were put up on June 28, and earlier this year about a dozen benches were placed along West Niagara Street, leading up to the park. The benches are meant to deter people from parking under the trees. “There’s a nice little row of trees that ▲

ERIC MORA uses a ladder to reach the highest parts of the cherry tree.

ENTERPRISE INTERN Corey Frost helps with handpicking cherries.

Sweet cherry pickers Continued from Page 1 for Bill’s Farm Market in Petoskey. Bardenhagen appeared from the back, pulling a pallet of about 30 lugs. We spent a little time loading them into the truck before departing to Steve Bardenhagen’s to do some orchard work. When we arrived, a truck with a cooling unit was waiting to be loaded. Steve, along with his father Gary, arrived with a couple of employees after only a few moments. They quickly secured a pallet of cherries and Steve lifted it into the back of the truck using a tractor mounted forklift. As they closed the cooling unit’s doors, Jim explained how I should go about picking. “Right now we’re picking stem-on, so you can’t just grab hold of the fruit,” he said. “It’s a little slower, but you have to take it by the stem and tip the cherry to keep it from breaking off. “We try to keep the stem on for most

of our local markets.” Gary armed me with a pail and he and I set out into the orchard where he dropped me off with the nearest group of pickers. The crew was already hard at work. All down the rows of trees, ladders extended upward while lugs sat on the ground, stacked on top of each other. Some were full of cherries, others remained empty waiting for the next picker to return with a full pail. “We start at 7 a.m. and work until about 4 or 5 p.m.,” said Nano Lopez, one of the pickers from Texas. After watching the crew pick for a short amount of time, I was given the opportunity to snag a couple myself. The pail sat just above my hips, clipped to the straps around my shoulders at two off-set points to keep it from tipping over. I reached up and grabbed hold of a low-hanging branch, pulling it toward me to get to the fruit. As instructed, I placed my fingers


where the stem was anchored to the tree and tipped the fruit. It came off easily and I dropped it in my bucket. I repeated this process a couple times over, dropping unusable cherries on the ground. The time moved quickly and it wasn’t long before I was removing the pail from my shoulders. Moving faster though, is the truncated cherry season. “The sweet cherry crop usually goes to about the third week of July,” Jim said. “This year they could be done as early as next week or so.” He urged me to enjoy it while I can and as I left the Bardenhagen Farm, Gary offered me a handful of the product I had picked. I couldn’t refuse. After all, what’s summer in Leelanau County without a handful of sweets?

Cherries trucked to processors Continued from Page 1 get in there,” said LaCross. Cherries mature first in southern Leelanau County, with the harvest starting in Elmwood Township and getting underway in Leelanau Township a week or even two weeks later. From what LaCross has seen so far, the cherry crop won’t come near meeting market expectations. “I don’t think that we’ll produce over 250,000 pounds of tarts. On a normal year, it would probably be six million,” said LaCross. Leelanau Fruit has developed a niche in brine cherries used in ice cream, fruit cocktails, muffins and other products — which makes finding a source for sweet cherries so important to the company. The loss of the cherry crop in Leelanau, which normally produces more tart and sweet cherries than any other county in the nation, is taking a toll on the local economy. Normally the Suttons Bay plant of Leelanau Fruit would need a workforce of 140 people to handle the cherry harvest. Presently, the company has only 40 workers on its payroll. Some growers with few cherries to offer are skipping the commodity market altogether, opting instead to sell crops themselves at farmers markets or at their own farms. They’ll increase their profit by skipping the “middle man,” concedes LaCross. “I just talked to a grower out on Old

Mission who said he had 60,000 pounds of dark cherries. He’d normally take them to a processor, but he has a stand in Traverse City where he plans to sell them. He’ll do well,” LaCross said. Handsome prices, by historical standards, are being paid to growers who have cherries to sell to processors. Cherry

prices have ranged from about 25 cents to 30 cents a pound in recent years. Presently, sweets are bringing 50 cents a pound, while tarts are fetching $1.00 — or more. “One processor downstate paid $1.50 (for tart cherries) on a very selective basis,” LaCross said.

Light cherry harvest Continued from Page 1 shaken from trees will be sold on the commodity market; a few hand-picked cherries are placed in quarts for sale on their own farm.” “We may run out this week,” John Coldwell said. “We picked some for the locals, but that’s about it.” A series of seasonal frosts decimated cherry production in Leelanau County and across the state after buds started nd developed into blooms a month earlier than normal. The Coldwells had no tart cherries to harvest — “we don’t know anybody who shook tarts,” said John — and only a small percentage of their normal sweet cherry production. “Maybe 10 percent,” said Carol Coldwell, who explained that during a normal year between 100,000 and 130,000 pounds of sweet cherries would

come from their 30 acres. “Some orchards would have some; some won’t have any.” Added John, “The tarts are a waste of time.” The Coldwells have six acres planted in tarts. Cherry harvest on the Coldwell farm was completed in four days; it normally takes two weeks. The Coldwells, who have both retired from jobs with the state of Michigan, grow and sell several crops on their farm. Strawberry season is over. Some varieties of raspberries have been ripe for 2-3 weeks, and other varieties will be available through the first frost. Blueberries should be ripe in about two weeks. Normally, sweet cherries would continue to be available through July and into early August. But not in 2012. “We’ll hope for a better crop next year,” John Coldwell said.

have a great dinner at the Marina Park is also a great way to end.” “It has been popular because many different people can enjoy this event together,” Christie said. “A 20-mile bike ride to Suttons Bay is fun and many people are able to do it, however it is riding another 20 miles back home that can be a deterrent to some and this event allows them to enjoy the trail with return transportation.” To help celebrate the milestone, local libations will be available to purchase in Suttons Bay including beer from Short’s Brewery. All adult participants will receive a pair of Tour de TART socks and youngsters under 12 will get spoke beads. “The socks were a big hit last year and with a new design, they are sure to be a success again,” Christie noted. This year’s event, being catered by 9 Bean Rows, also has two food

stops along the trail and mechanics from local bike shops – Brick Wheels, City Bike, and McLain Cycle & Fitness. Tour de TART will be also “zero waste” thanks to composting and recycling provided by Bay Area Recycling for Charities. Pre-registration is encouraged online at, or pick up a registration form at the TART office (415 S. Union St. in Old Town Traverse City) or at local bike shops. The cost is $30 for adults and $5 for children through Thursday, July 19. Late registrants will be charged and additional $5. If spots are available, day of ride registration is also available from 4-6 p.m. The Tour de Tart occurs rain or shine. All proceeds benefit TART Trails. For more event information contact TART at 941-4300 or www.

Raffle for new Volt to help Heritage Trail TART Trails and Cherry Republic have partners to sponsor the “Charge Up the Dunes” raffle to raise money for the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail campaign. The bearer of the winning ticket will drive away a brand new Chevy Volt. The raffle has been limited to 1,200 tickets sold at $100 each or three for $250. The Volt was purchased from General Motors at a significant discount. The Heritage Tail consists of a 27-mile non-motorized pathway that, when finished, will run the length of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

“The ‘Charge up the Dunes’ raffle is a terrific combination of everything good going on in Michigan, and Cherry Republic is really excited to be a part of it,” said Bob Sutherland, Cherry Republic owner. “Partnering with Chevrolet to help raise money for the Sleeping Bear Heritage Bike Trail has been very rewarding. “And combining the Volt with the trail gives people such an easy way to support Michigan’s industry, tourism, quality of life and the environment.” Tickets are on sale at Cherry Republic stores in Traverse City and Glen Arbor, at Crystal River Out-

fitters in Glen Arbor and online at The drawing will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 1 at Cherry Republic’s Glen Arbor location. The Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail campaign must raise $400,000 for design and engineering to extend the trail south from the Dune Climb to Empire. Donors of $1,000 or more will be recognized at a permanent donor plaza located at the Dune Climb. Well-known local artist Glenn Wolff created an illustrated map of the trail and donors of $5,000 or more will receive a limited edition signed print.

The Tour de Tart’s 12th annual ride on the Leelanau Trail from Traverse City to Suttons Bay will be a historic ride this month. The final 6.5-miles from Lakeview Hills Road to Revold has been paved and will be ready for the ride scheduled on Friday, July 27. “It’s really exciting,” said Pam Darling, development director for the Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation (TART) Trails. “The No. 1 comment since the ride was started was ‘Pave the trail.’ “In the 12th year, it is.” “This project is one we have been working on for several years and to see it finally finished is wonderful,” said Hattie Christie, marketing and outreach director for TART. This year’s ride will be capped at 600 riders. Last year’s event drew 560. Registration is underway and is nearly half full. “I’m pretty confident it will fill,” Darling said. “We are currently ahead of registration in comparison to year’s past,” Christie noted. “Depending on the interest, we may begin a waiting list.” Darling said the 19-mile flat course is suitable for cyclists of all abilities and ages. Families with young children are encouraged to start their ride early to allow adequate time for rest stops. The ride begins at 4 p.m. at the old train depot located at Eighth Street and Woodmere Avenue in Traverse City. It ends at Marina Park in the Village of Suttons Bay. Participants will then be bused back to Traverse City with their bikes. Bus service begins at 7 p.m. with the last bus departing at 9:30 p.m. Participants who live in the Suttons Bay area can also get a bus ride from Suttons Bay to Traverse City with their bicycles for the event start. Pre-registration is required, however. The Tour de Tart has been a popular ride since its inception. The ride has been a fundraiser for the paving project in the past. “I think it’s popular become so popular because people enjoy riding a bicycle from Point A to Point B,” Darling said. “And to be able to

Cherry fest coming to Suttons Bay, hort station

Pianist returns for NCAC performance By Corey L. Frost Enterprise intern

Northport will feel the spirits of Chopin and Liszt Saturday when pianist Thomas Pandolfi returns to the Northport Community Arts Center. Pandolfi, who performed in last year’s summer concert series, received high praise for his skill as a musician and ability to interact with his audience. Doug Scripps, president of the NCAC, is enthusiastic about inviting him back. “He’s an elegant pianist,” Scripps said. “A lot of people spoke to me after his Gershwin show and said this is an artist we needed to have back.” After such a positive reaction from those in attendance, it wasn’t a difficult decision for the NCAC. Pandolfi’s skill is impossible to question. He’s performed with European orchestras such as The George Enescu Philharmonic and The Cluj Philharmonic, among others. He’s also performed with several American symphony orchestras throughout the country. Scripps, however, believes that it’s Pandolfi’s personable stage presence that truly makes him unique. “In addition to playing, he takes time to talk to the audience,” Scripps said. “He has a very congenial nature, even funny at times.”

This year’s performance will differ slightly from his Gershwin show. Rather than strictly playing pieces by one composer, Pandolfi will open with six Franz Liszt compositions then return from intermission to conclude with six more pieces by Frederic Chopin. Among those in the line-up are songs such as “Hungarian Rhapsody No. 12 in C-Sharp Minor” and “Nocturne in E-Flat Major.” According to Pandolfi, his upcoming performance and the one last year are excellent gauges of his overall style. “In a nutshell, a lot of what I’m playing in Northport is what I play in general,” Pandolfi said in a recent phone interview. “I play pieces from the mid-19th century and have a particular interest in Gershwin. “Both are very serious but entertaining to say the least,” Last year marked the first time the graduate of The Juilliard School in New York City performed in Northern Michigan. Not only was he impressed by the scenery, but with the reaction he received from the Northport audience as well. “It’s a great place to be at the height of summer,” Pandolfi said. “I got a fantastic response from the audience, so it makes it an easy place to come back to. “I’m looking forward to per-

this are integral to the NCAC’s summer line-up. Scripps says they do their best to include at least one concert of this nature each year. “These performances draw a completely different type of crowd,” he said. “It’s a venue we cherish and would like to continue to build upon, so including artists such as Thomas is a great way to do that.” Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the door before the concert or by calling the NCAC’s office at 231-386-5001.

County residents won’t have to go to Traverse City next week to participate in National Cherry Festival activities. The Northwest Michigan Horticultural Research Center in Bingham Township will be the site Tuesday for the Cherry Connection, bringing together the festival, farm and fruit. The event, sponsored by the Michigan Cherry Committee, will feature a visit of the extension’s 100-acre farm. Besides the guided tours, there will be exhibits and samples of the newest cherry products and technology inside the station. There will be all sorts of “cherry” fun for kids, including a petting zoo, hands-on experiments, kids poster coloring contest and many other activities. Cherry Connection begins at 10 a.m. Next Wednesday, July 9, Suttons Bay School will host the cherry festival’s Mid-American Competiting Band Directors Association’s preliminary finals. The event, to be held on the football field at the school, begins at 6 p.m. Gates open at 5 p.m. Bands scheduled to appear include the Sound of Sun Prairie, Renegade Regiment and the Shadow Armada. “It’s not something a school our size typically gets to experience,” Suttons Bay band director Emily Morgan said. “It’s a great opportunity for the kids to see what’s out there.” For the third year in a row, Suttons Bay will host a band from Oregon, Wis., who will stay at the school during the competition. Tickets are $10 and seating is general admission. Suttons Bay Band Boosters and students will be running the concession stand with proceeds going to a band trip to Disney World in spring 2013.

It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just the summer temperatures that are heating things up in Omena. The mayoral elections are now in full swing. There are already two calico cats, one Brittany spaniel, a golden retriever, and a Lhasa Apso who have thrown their hats in the ring. Speculation is hot and heavy on whether the current mayor, Tucker Joyce, will run for reelection. If not, will his son, Parker, try to maintain the family dynasty? Applications are due July 12, and we probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know until then. In 2009, about 20 Omena pets competed for the honor. Check out the board in front of the Putnam Cloud Tower House to read all about the candidates. Do you often think your family pet could do a better job than our elected ofďŹ cials? If your pet is a year-round or seasonal resident of Greater Omena, now is your chance to prove it. Applications are available on the Omena Historical Society (OHS) website, www. For more information about applying contact Helen Putnam Bradley at The event is a fundraiser for OHS. Voting will begin on Saturday, July 14, and votes are $1 each. The new mayor will be announced on Saturday, July 21, as part of Omena Village Days. Omena Village Days is a fundraiser for the Omena Village Preservation Association (OVPA) and OHS. The day starts with OVPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s giant tag/yard sale at the Barth House on M-22 across from the Omena Church. Donations of items can be dropped off at the Boscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s red barn every day between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. The mayoral parade is at 11 a.m. on Isthmus to the Omena Point Road, with food and family fun following at the Barth House. If you have questions about the tag sale or need help moving items, call Marcia Biskupski, 386 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7278. This Saturday there is an open house

to celebrate Bea Kimmerlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th birthday. It will be at Blessed Kateri Catholic Church from 2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;5 p.m. Thanks to Alice Hauske and Margie Meacham for helping Beaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family plan this event. There will be a special program Tuesday, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Exploring Omenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Historyâ&#x20AC;? from 7â&#x20AC;&#x201C;9 p.m. at the OHS Museum. The presenters are Joey Bensley and Alice LittleďŹ eld. They will show some of the artifacts in the archives, and share samples of interviews and information that have been collected over the years. Our sympathies go to Joan Kalchik TenBrock of Omena and Sam Middleton of Northport and their family on the death of their mother, Dorothy Middleton, this past Sunday. Dorothy was 97-years-old and had been an active member of the Northport community all of her life. She was one of eight children of Eli and Emma Carlson Firestone. She was involved with the Leelanau Township Community Foundation for 42 years, and a member of the Friends of the Library for 37 years. Her family and friends were important to her. Music was one of the things she really enjoyed, and she shared that with her children, taking them to the Traverse City concert series when they were young. She will be missed by the many people whose lives she touched. The Northport Promise Summer Sizzler RafďŹ&#x201A;e drawing will be held at Music in the Park this Friday at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for the $5,000 cash rafďŹ&#x201A;e, and a maximum of 2000 tickets will be sold.

THE GLEN HAVEN Canning Company, where area farmers sold some of their produce (1926): Much like today, Port Oneida women and others picked up spending money during the cherry harvest by helping pick and process the fruit. This snapshot of her coworkers was taken by 15-yearold Laura Basch with her prized Kodak Brownie camera. She recalled that during harvest time the crew worked from 8 a.m. – midnight, with no breaks except for lunch.

Editor’s note: We continue a series of stories adapted from the “Images & Recollections from Port Oneida” book series, based on oral histories by Tom Van Zoeren. Here’s another one about Ole Thoreson, based on information provided by his son Leonard, of Glen Arbor. The Thoresons had the only commercial orchard in Port Oneida while Leonard was growing up during the 1920’s-‘40’s, with about 75 cherry trees. Leonard remembers them as quite a nuisance: “Well, you had to spray ‘em, and that was usually just about the same time as haying season. That was a job I hated. All we had was an old barrel sprayer. You’d sit there and pump that. You had to get pickers, too. That was a job, to get the pickers. Neighbors would come and pick — women and kids — whoever we could get.” The cherries were taken to Lake Leelanau or to D.H Day’s Glen Haven Canning Company. “I remember my dad and I going up there to Day’s Cannery. I might have been eight years old, going up there. We picked cherries that day. We loaded ‘em in the back of the car, so it probably was 20 lugs, at the most. And we hauled ‘em up there. On the end of the building was a platform. You’d unload the cherries up there. Then they weighed them on the old beam scale. And then Dad took me in there and showed me the canning factory. I thought, Oh, man! It was so hot in there from that old boiler and all that steam and everything! The cans were running on the racks up there, rattling, clatter! Holy—I didn’t like that,” Leonard laughed On the other hand, there could be drawbacks to other crops as well. “Shortly after my Dad bought the farm from his dad, a lot of people raised potatoes in them days. He was gonna make a big killing on ‘em. Well, that field south of the pigpen — the hills up in there? Just west of the Thoreson Road? Yup, it was all new land, just cleared recently. It was going to be his first crop of potatoes. In the fall of the year when he dug ‘em they were $2 a bushel. And Dad says — my dad told Grandpa John, ‘I want to sell them potatoes for $2 a bushel.’ Grandpa says, ‘No,’ he says, ‘you better hang onto them. They’ll be worth more money in the spring.’ “So when the spring came around, after handling the potatoes three or four times — sprouting ‘em and sorting ‘em — I don’t remember how many bushels he had; probably a hundred bushel

that he was going to sell. They put ’em in sacks. He had sold ’em. Some buyer came in from Chicago and bought the potatoes. Dad was supposed to have ’em down at the dock on such a certain date and a ship would pick ’em up. The boat would take ’em down to Chicago. Well Dad says he could have got $2 a bushel for ’em in the fall — and in the spring he got 50 cents a bushel. He said he hauled ‘em down there and put them on the dock, and the last he knew they were still settin’ on the dock. The sprouts come right up through the sack. He said the last he heard they pushed them all over into the bay.” One of Ole’s wintertime occupations was sorting the beans he had grown the preceding summer. “I remember, if it was storming, you couldn’t do a thing outside. After he got done doing chores, he’d take a bag of beans and carry them up to the house and sit there and sort beans all day. It was a little green bean. I don’t know what they called them.” Ole would sit by the window and sort the beans with his bean sorter, which consisted of “a little box. You’d dump them in, and it had a belt on there. You pumped it with your foot and you’d pull some more beans up. You’d pick the bad ones out and you’d pump it again. The good beans would go down the chute into a sack. It was nice workmanship and had a nice finish on it. I wish I’d have kept it.” Leonard remembers one bad storm when his dad finally exclaimed, “‘I’ve been settin’ here sortin’ beans for three days now, and this is the first time I’ve seen Millers’ barn (next door)!’ It was storming that bad — for three days. Oh, the wind used to blow up there in that place!” In addition to peddling his beans door-to-door along with other products, Ole marketed them as “Uncle Ole’s Beans” at his brother’s Traverse City store. “They were good beans. People would come in the store and say, ‘Can I have some more of Uncle Ole’s Beans?’”

She was chosen Thursday night from a field of 17 regional candidates. *** Leelanau County, with a total population of 8.600 persons, now has 4,400 registered voters, according to a telephone poll of township clerks made yesterday by this newspaper. *** One of the best commercial catches in several years was reported Monday by a fishing crew at Leland. Henry Steffens, his son Henry Jr., and Leo Stallman lifted 1,400 pounds of chubs from 20 nets in 400 feet of water in the Lake Michigan channel between Leland and North Manitou Island. *** Floating debris on Suttons Bay and Grand Traverse Bay constitute a real hazard to all power boat operations and should be removed by boatmen and property owners along these watercourses when ever possible, the Suttons Bay Boat Club warned today. High waters have reached far back from the normal shoreline to pick up logs, stumps, planks, old railroad ties and fenceposts and scattered them over the water. 115 YEARS AGO July 1, 1897 Philip Portner has purchased a fine 80acre tract of land from Antoine Ance. *** The Ide E. brought in two large scow loads of wood for L.J. Grobben this forenoon. *** The steamer Tiger will sell tickets on July 3rd, 4th and 5th for half fare for the round trip. *** The North Manitou resort is fast filling up with resorters. *** Remember that Leland will celebrate the 4th on Saturday.

5 YEARS AGO July 5, 2007 If they come, they’ll have plenty to do. But will they come to Leelanau? The Diversions section in this week’s Enterprise is chock-full of events planned for the Leelanau Peninsula despite having the Fourth of July fall dead in the middle of the week, on Wednesday. *** Leelanau Township fruit grower Tom Van Pelt is the exception — not the rule — when it comes to the 3-year sweet and tart cherry survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Michigan Field Office of the National Agricultural Statistic Service. He planted 500 tart cherry trees last year, making him one of the few to do so between 2003 and 2006. *** Mike and Linda Bartlett aren’t afraid to show their “true colors.” Red, white and blue can be found all over the barn at their family’s 1908 farmstead and yard south of Northport. It’s hard to miss. “We’re very patriotic,” said Bartlett, who represents the third generation of owners of the home and barn. 10 YEARS AGO June 4, 2002 A 7.22-acre tract with more than 1,000 feet of frontage along the Crystal River has been purchased by the Leelanau Conservancy. The property, known to locals as the tip of the “Oxbow,” was put up for sale by the Leelanau School in October. Funds for the property were provided through a new Great Lakes Revolving Loan Fund backed by the Mott Foundation. *** Bobby Atkinson of Maple City has played his accordion right into the Michigan State Music Hall of Fame — Polka Category. He will be inducted at the Cedar Polka Fest before the thousands of polka enthusiasts who annually swell the community just after the Fourth of July. *** While the National Park Service admittedly looked into closing down the Dune Climb near Glen Lake to protect sensitive areas, the option now preferred calls for improved public access on the popular climbing hill. That word comes from Mike Duwe, Park Service specialist who is helping organize the process of writing a new General Management Plan for Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. 35 YEARS AGO July 7, 1977 Leelanau County came through the long Fourth of July weekend in good shape this year, with no major accidents recorded on either land or water despite a big influx of visitors and temperatures up into the 90s. Chief Ranger Charles Parkinson of the National Park Service said 17,060 persons were counted during the

Children enjoy coming to our Gardens to play “boats.” Their “boats” are little branches of trees which they place in the water of the streams. They run along beside them and follow them as they go downstream. When the water runs rapidly, the “boats” move rapidly. The little “boats” are carried along, under the control and direction of the water. What’s true of those boats is true of the believers who wrote the Bible. They were carried along, under the control and direction of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, “Men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” That’s inspiration!

Great Places Still Available for Summer SULLY SEYMOUR, 5, of Glen Arbor took the opportunity to climb into a fire truck at the Glen Arbor Firefighters Association’s annual pancake breakfast Sunday.


THE MCFERRAN family from Phoenix was in the county visiting relatives for a long weekend and attended the Glen Arbor Firefighters Association annual pancake breakfast. Pictured from left are Connor, 7, his mother Christine, sister Kendall, 4, and their father, Lincoln.

More than 500 adults and a good number of children enjoyed pancakes, sausage, applesauce and cherry sauce at the Glen Arbor Firefighters Association annual pancake breakfast Sunday. “That’s a little down from usual, but we usually hold it on the Sunday of the July 4th holiday,” said Stan Brubaker, former member of the department’s Emergency Services Advisory Commission. “But with the holiday in the middle of the week, it’s a little low ... seems to be quite a lot of people in town though.” The event is held annually to support the purchase of equipment or the cost of training that has not been funded through the fire millage. The department’s ladder truck was available for inspection. The Glen Lake Fire Department will host its annual open house on Saturday, July 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the fire station in Glen Arbor.

A rebuilt 1970s cottage in Omena, a re-purposed church and a four-story post and beam barn home overlooking the peninsula are part of the Northport Home Tour. In all, five homeowners will open their doors and let people take a look at their unique homes in the annual tour, a Northport Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club event that raises money for local young people, from preschoolers to high school graduates. The tour will take place next Wednesday, July 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available from all Northport Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club members, as well as from The Business Helper in Suttons Bay, Leelanau Books in Leland, Tamarack Gallery in Omena, Dolls and More in Northport and Anchor Cottages in Suttons Bay. Tickets are also available at each home on the day of the tour. Docents will be in all the homes to direct tour-goers and to answer any questions, said Rita Lecy, president of the Northport Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club. The tour has been going on for about 10 years and has always been popular, Lecy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People like to see the different

Men's & Women's Shoes 50% to 70% off

styles, the different ways people like to decorate their homes, the different materials people use to build their homes,â&#x20AC;? Lecy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just different ways of doing things that makes each one unique.â&#x20AC;? One home is decorated in orange, red and pink, Lecy said. Another has a sink made of maple wood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know you could make a sink out of maple,â&#x20AC;? Lecy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the kind of thing people like to see. Each one is distinct and unique and fits the person that is in there.â&#x20AC;? In past years the event has raised up to $12,000, money that is used for scholarships for students in the Northport area, for the Northport Promise Scholarship and for the Leelanau Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center. Scholarships are given to students who are well-rounded, not just those who get good grades, Lecy said. The decision to give part of the money that is raised to the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center came about because of a club vote several years ago, Lecy said, because it gives youngsters a good start. The group is hoping to raise $8,000 or $9,000 this year, she said. For more information on the tour, call Lecy at 386-7076 or Patty Noftz at 386-9936. Here are the homes that will be fea-

â&#x20AC;˘ Farrell Home, 615 N. Warren St., Northport â&#x20AC;&#x201D; When Marjorie and Walt Farrell walked into the former St. Gertrudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church in Northport, they knew they were home. The couple, who moved to the area in 2011, had long wanted to live in a repurposed church, library or schoolhouse. And St. Gertrudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fit the bill. The church was purchased by Gertrude Lord in 1978, who remodeled it to live in. Many of the original details, such as the hardwood floors and painted tin panels on the ceiling, were kept. A choir loft at the steeple entrance was added, as was a kitchen and loft sleeping area. The Farrells have not made any major changes to the house and use the 16-foot tall rooms to display their extensive art, tapestry and photography collection. The choir loft is used to display some unusual musical instruments, with windows that soar up into the living space, providing natural lighting for all of the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collections. â&#x20AC;˘ Marjoras Home, 1000 Rudy Dr., Northport â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Built in 2001 by Barbara and Themie Marjoras, this barn home

They took the house down to the studs, keeping the original floor plan. Built of cedar and glass in 1970 by Henry and Barbara Schneidewind, the house now has a galley kitchen and a palette of misty grays and sea-glass greens. Interior doors are modeled after those seen in a Sausalito hotel the couple stayed in while on vacation. Slate tiles integrate interior and exterior spaces, which, coupled with the glass wall on the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lake side, gives the small house a sense of openness and a spectacular view of Omena Bay.

It was very cold with about three feet of snow on the ground when Marjorie and Walt Farrell first walked into their Northport home, the former St. Gertrude Catholic Church. Even so, sunlight was streaming through the eight-foot-tall windows, lighting the interior of the church-turned-home with a sense of peace and serenity. The Farrells knew they were home. “When we walked in everything was like it should be,” Marjorie said. “We love Northport, we love the area and we love the house.” That was in April 2011. Since then, the couple has done some landscaping and added some bookshelves that act to partition off a foyer, some office space and a small reading area that holds a futon for overnight guests. The house is also full of their collections of Inuit prints, sculptures, photography, masks and Gamelan instruments for Walt’s Indonesian music hobby. Though the Farrells have always wanted to live in a former schoolhouse, library or church, they’ve spent all of their 28 married years in pretty standard housing. The closest they ever came to living in a home with a different original mission was when they rented a duplex purchased by a policeman in an auction. The decrepit house, held together by a few nails and a shingle or two, had apparently once been a stage coach stop and tavern. But unlike their present home, it had no visible signs of its past life, said Walt, a retired computer programmer for IBM. Marjorie is originally from Washington; Walt was born in Traverse City. As a child he lived all over the country, though he attended elementary school in Empire and Glen Arbor. His mother was born in Northport and when his parents retired, they made Northport their home. The Farrells spent a lot of time with them and decided to also move to the area. Their one bedroom, 1,100-squarefoot former church has its challenges. There’s no garage and there are fewer closets, though the closets they do have are fairly good sized, Walt said. The couple had to downsize when they moved in. “There’s a lot more room for books and art, but still not quite enough,” Walt said. Some of their things are in storage. Some they just decided they didn’t need. “When choosing between a sculpture and an extra couch, we left the extra couch,” said Marjorie, a retired photographer and photo researcher. It is also impossible for one of them to watch television or talk on the phone if the other one is listening to music.

THE HIGH ceilings and loft make a perfect backdrop for the Farrells’ collection of masks.

THE FARRELL Home is the former St. Gertrudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church in Northport. Glen Arbor. While here, Todd and Beth would drive to different areas of the county, still dreaming of owning a piece of it. In 2008 they began searching for that special place and when they walked up the driveway they knew they had found their home. The house was built in 2005 using engineered 2 by 4â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throughout. The landscaping was later updated and a fire pit installed; the Hooglands can now watch the sun go down on the lake while sitting beside a campfire.

Couple at peace in old church Continued from Page 3 But even that has its positive side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The acoustics are excellent. We can sit in any part of the house and whisper to each other,â&#x20AC;? Walt said. There is also the fact that â&#x20AC;&#x153;everybody in town knows where we live,â&#x20AC;? Marjorie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People stop us all the time at the grocery store and tell us, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We got married in your house,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Our children were Christened in your house,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was an altar boy in your house.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? But the 16-foot-high ceilings cov-




ered in tin salvaged from the old Kalkaska County courthouse, the original wood floors which still show marks where the pews used to be and the choir loft with the arched window make up for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really does have a peaceful feel to it,â&#x20AC;? Marjorie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt that way in a house that was traditionally built.â&#x20AC;? Though the Farrells are not particularly religious, they are spiritual. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely feel a respect for what this place was,â&#x20AC;? Marjorie said.

Continued from Page 2 was designed by Traverse City architect George Moutsatson. Built on a 10-acre hill that was once part of an orchard, the four-story home with a three-story skylight and cupola gives a beautiful panoramic view of the Leelanau Peninsula. The barn design of the home fits in well with its pastoral surroundings and is based on a drawing by the late Curtis Leece, a Northport resident who had been the photo and graphics editor at the Saginaw News. The barn house features extensive use of cedar, pine, hickory and maple in post and beam construction. The home is decorated with collections of antique furniture, art glass and paintings of noted Detroit artists, as well as with impressionist Leelanau landscapes done by the homeowner. â&#x20AC;˘ Walter Home, 7225 N.

Paciorka Walterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family has had ties to the area for more than 100 years, and she has been a weekend and summer resident since the 1970s, when her parents bought the property adjoining Fox Hill. The Walter couple spent months studying house plans, finally settling on a Craftsman-inspired home with an open floor plan designed by architect John Robinson. The house has many personal touches, such as the fieldstone fireplace made from stone gathered from her great-uncleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm in Northport, and the fireplace mantle made from a solid piece of black walnut that her father had stored in his barn for 20 years, waiting for the right project.

DETAILS SUCH as the intricate twig work and stonework set the Howard house apart from others on North Lake Leelanau.

North Lake Leelanau lodge turned into a work of art Beth Howard and Clark Southwell sat on the shore of north Lake Leelanau and made plans to build a lakeside cottage for Howard and her husband, David. Four years later, the Howards moved into what they affectionately call the “possum lodge.” It’s unlike any other home in the county. “It was originally supposed to be our cottage on the lake,” said David Howard, who had been living on Lake Michigan south of Leland. “But it expanded so much that we decided not to have two houses and to move here.” Why not. The four-bedroom home and adjacent bunkhouse are the culmination of the work of more than a dozen local craftsmen and is truly a work of art. Southwell, a Suttons Bay building contractor, had previously remodeled a kitchen for the Howards and was approached when the couple began talking about the building project. “I’ve always been interested in architecture,” the design/build contractor said. As a youngster, Southwell was first exposed to the construction process when spending summers in Minnesota. At age 11, he helped build a home on

an island. “I had a great time doing that and later traveled East and saw the architecture out there,” Southwell said. The Suttons Bay contractor said he has been inspired by Lake Ann artist Clifton Monteith and Suttons Bay architect Roger Hummel. However, it’s the influence of northern Michigan timber frame builder Robert Foulkes that is most evident to those walking through the handcrafted front door. Huge exposed wooden beams support the ceiling lends themselves to the open floor plan of the home. Although Beth Howard worked more closely with Southwell on the design, which literally began with scratchings on the back of an envelope, the creators did follow David’s request that the home be constructed of wood. “It reminds me of some of the architecture I saw in Austria and Bavaria,” he said. “There’s no drywall, it’s all wood.” The home is built in the architectural style of Adironack camps which were prominent in upstate New York in the 1800s. Construction combined rustic materials from the forest such as log beams, stone fireplaces and elegant imported items. “That’s where the inspiration for the twig work rails came from,” Southwell said.

It took two men an entire day to produce just one segment of the railing that runs the length of the home’s 50-foot lakeside porch, the upstairs loft and the exterior walkways. “It’s like a jigsaw puzzle. They had to put it all together and make sure it was still to code,” Howard said. To avoid having to run the mechanicals through the five-inch wooden walls, crews installed them in the floor under which plastic tubing was also placed to heat the home. Electrical outlets are built into the baseboards. “It all had to be mapped out,” Southwell said. The home features handcrafted doors, birch bark ceilings, black walnut counters in the bath. But it’s the open floor plan that David Howard enjoys most. “We’ve had homes with formal dining rooms which never got used,” he said. “No one ever went in there.” A giant circular table — also of wood — sits in front of huge windows that provide great views of North Lake Leelanau. Nearby there’s a bar area

which a hand-built dining table and chairs of walnut and cherry sit. Attention to detail was also extended to the masonry. Once selected, the stones used were placed in a truck with a wooden bed to avoid leaving scratches and rust marks on the building products. “I was pretty naive about the talent here,” Howard said. “People from all over Leelanau County were part of this process. I’m just in awe of the talent in this county.”

where the grandchildren can eat, all within the same living space. “That’s the most significant part for me,” Howard said. “Everyone in the same room.” But when needed, there is a space where family members can get away. Attached by a stone walkway and roof overhead is a guest house with a loft occupied most often by the Howard’s grandchildren, ages 5, 7, and 9. Outside, large stone pillars, similar to those seen on medieval castles in Europe, support a 50-foot porch on

The Howard’s “possum lodge” is just one of five homes featured in the Leland Women’s Civic Club 2012 Home Tour, Aug. 8. The biennial event includes distinctive homes in and around Leland; two are in the village of Leland and the Howards are on the eastern shore of North Lake Leelanau. Featured homes are: • Stanley and Ralph (Bo) Reahard III, 1027 N. Leland Estates, “The Promised Land” — Several generations of Reahards have known and loved this scenic Lake Michigan bluff property. Before anything was built here, it was a favorite family picnic spot which was always called “The Promised Land”. In the summer of 2004, Bo and Stanley inherited the family house, built in 1978 by Bud and Barbara Reahard. They refurbished Barbara’s gardens and enjoyed pieces of furniture made by Bud in his woodworking shop. With Suttons Bay architect Susan Walter, they began years of planning for an addition and more. Started in 2009 and finished in the spring of 2010, the new carriage house guest quarters became home while the main house was renovated. Chad Bufka of Northport was general contractor and Little Fish Woodworks in Lake Leelanau built the custom cabinetry. The project was completed in the spring of 2011. • Sue and K e v i n More Burns, 101 S. Grand St., than 600 Leland, “A people are D r e a m True” expected to Come — The Burns have participate lived in the in the tour. house for more than 20 years and have had lots of time to compile a wish list for their perfect home. The recently completed addition is 1½ times bigger than the original house. The Burns’ new kitchen features Craftsman style handmade woodwork by Little Fish Woodworks, which looks as if it is original to the house. There’s a hand-crafted copper hood and sink which were added by local artist, Darin Fetter of North Shore Iron Works. Along with a new master bedroom and bath, the addition includes a media room and a new dining room, which opens onto a patio with a pergola. • Mike and Beth Grosvenor, 78 Oak Street, Leland, “Art, Color, and the Carp River” — A folk art driftwood rooster and two brightly colored, handcarved snakes, made by homeowner Mike Grosvenor, greet visitors as they stroll up the walk to their home. The home features beautiful views of the Leland River and a colorful art-filled interior fashioned by Beth. She selected rich, deep-toned colors for the walls which make a perfect backdrop for their selection and collection of Michigan art. • Kris and Dr. Peter Sneed, 5325 Sugarbush Lane, “All About Family” — The original home on the Lake Michigan property was razed, leaving

JANET VANTIMMEREN of Rockford checks out the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s screen printing and embroidery business website from her makeshift office inside her fifth wheel at the Lake Leelanau RV Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to put up with the transients coming in and out every week and the loud music and stinky campfires. My site is very peaceful.â&#x20AC;? The RV Park is open May 1 through Oct. 31. The VanTimmerens, who leave their RV at the park year-round, usually arrive once school is out the first of June and stay till mid-August. The VanTimmerenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modest RV has two bedrooms and two small bathrooms. The kitchen area also serves as office space for Janet, who works during the summer from her RV. The VanTimmerens have owned and operated Chaser Apparel, a full service screen printing and embroi-

dery shop since 2000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has its challenges,â&#x20AC;? Janet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a landline and a cell phone. Internet ... on good days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I get my work done.â&#x20AC;? The VanTimmerens have made the most of their seasonal summer home. The two oldest children, Anne, 23, and Lauren, 19, took driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education at Leland. Both of the girls also had summer jobs. Anne is now married and living in Kansas. Lauren is attending Grand Rapids Community College. Michael, 15, works odd jobs around the RV park to pick up spending money like mowing lawns.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since Michael was little, my husband wanted him to love football and baseball ... anything but fishing,â&#x20AC;? Janet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But he started fishing at an early age and the sickness got worse every year.â&#x20AC;? The VanTimmerens claim the environment is â&#x20AC;&#x153;family friendly,â&#x20AC;? from having immediate access to the lake to allowing children to roam freely on streets with six miles per hour speed limits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Occasionally weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Slow down!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually very little traffic,â&#x20AC;?

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.

Janet VanTimmerenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cribâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Lake Leelanau pales in comparison to the size of her spacious 4,800-square foot home back in Rockford. But the 48-year-old woman wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trade her 35-foot fifth wheel with a bunkhouse for anything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really funny, but when we pulled in this year, I felt as much at home here as I do at home,â&#x20AC;? said Janet VanTimmeren, who shares the RV with her husband, Tom, and three children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is my whole world here. This is Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously the space is kind of an issue, but I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care. You are in and out all day long.â&#x20AC;? Janet and her kids have spent most of her summer days in the last decade at the Lake Leelanau RV Park off S. Lakeshore Drive. The VanTimmerens had been visiting LL RV Park as â&#x20AC;&#x153;transientsâ&#x20AC;? for a few years before deciding there was no place better for their three children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We took our trailer here and to state parks and other campgrounds,â&#x20AC;? Janet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we kept asking ourselves â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we just here because this is where we love to be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simpler. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to hook up and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pack up.â&#x20AC;? The VanTimmerens made the move from transient to seasonal occupants at the park at a pivotal time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our kids were 4, 9 and 13,â&#x20AC;? Janet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This sort of suited our lifestyle very nicely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No chaos. Just come in and be done.â&#x20AC;? The VanTimmerensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lot is located on a corner of Interlochen Street in an area dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;the hill,â&#x20AC;? because of the landscaping they have done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it here,â&#x20AC;? said Janet, who also has a 2.5-acre home in Rockford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not land-locked. We have lots of space.

JANET VANTIMMEREN gets her Labrador retrievers Maysie and Rose on a leash and ready for a walk and dip in the water at the Lake Leelanua RV Park.

At home in fifth wheel on lake Continued from Page 7 The VanTimmerens also have two Labrador retrievers, 10-year-old Maysie and 6-year-old chocolate Rose. “I take them to the water in the park, but it’s less of a hassle to take them to a public access down the road,” Janet said. “They swim there every day usually. “They have had the very good life.” And so does Janet. “For me, it’s a good balance,” she said. “My kids are happy, my husband is happy and we’re making memories that we wouldn’t at home in Rockford.” The VanTimmerens have three water crafts, including one fishing boat that is for sale, available for recreational enjoyment. They also have a golf cart to help haul necessities to the dock for a day out on the water. “It is the best environment you can imagine for raising kids,” Janet said. “It’s fun all day long. “Today, my 15-year-old isn’t pounding on me to do something. He had three friends over for lunch and now he’s fishing or tubing.” “It’s a kids’ paradise,” Michael said. “I love fishing, tubing and just boating around the lake.”

Michael, who once landed a 23-inch smallmouth bass while fishing the lake, fishes whenever it’s possible. “Whenever I have worms,” he said laughingly. “ ... and a way on the water.” Living at an RV Park vs. owning a summer cottage has its advantages, Janet is quick to point out. Because of the rules at the park, visitors who can’t squeeze into the RV to sleep, can’t stay the night. “They don’t want a tent village and there would be additional stress on the resources from people who didn’t have to pay anything,” Janet said. “And I understand that.” But not all the VanTimmerens’ family and friends would concur. “I’ve had people say ‘That stinks,’” Janet said. “But the rules are in place to protect us.” Janet, who said she knows other folks who have cottages and can’t get rid of their summer guests, loves to entertain family at the RV Park. “I’ve said all along that I’d love to take you out on the boat every day, but you need to stay somewhere else or have your own trailer,” she said. Janet credits the Wilson family, which owns and operates the RV Park, for keeping the

They are constantly creating things for us to do,” she said, noting the pickleball and tennis courts among the improvements in the last decade. “It’s so fun here.” The RV Park also has ice cream nights, wagon rides and even organizes a Fourth of July kids’ parade. “That’s the cherry on top of the whipping

cream,” she said. “It makes it easy to be here, too.” Although the VanTimmerens do not have waterfront property at the park — most of that is set aside for the transients — that really doesn’t matter to them. “We’re not looking at the water, but we’re in close proximity and the boat is in the dock,” Janet said. “I can slide it out and I’m in the water in five minutes.”

IT TAKES just the right mortar mix is needed for a stone house to withstand Leelanau County winters. The Skiba farmhouse was built in 1921 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and its walls have never cracked.

Old stone house a rock for the ages BERTHA AND Alen Skiba love their familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stone farmhouse off South Lake Leelanau Dr. Did we mention the house comes with a nearly full basement? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly full with family items, canned fruit and vegetables, and of course a place to stack wood after itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conveniently handed downstairs through a small window. Access to the basement can be a problem for the unfamiliar, as lighting is poor heading down the stairs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One, two, three, four, five, six,â&#x20AC;? Bertha said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I count the stairs so I know when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at the bottom.â&#x20AC;? Two of the four upstairs bedrooms are used for storage. Another is a favorite of one of Skebaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s granddaughters. And one comes complete with bedside typewriter. The Skeba house feels warm and comfy, lived in and laughed in. Practical and personal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the greatest place in the world to grow up,â&#x20AC;? Alen Skeba recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We swam all summer long â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and we

never came in.â&#x20AC;? The home may have never been built had it not been for a fire that destroyed the original Skeba home, according to Bertha. The original farmhouse was closer to the road and south of the present home. Larry Skebaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Eva Plamondon of Traverse City, recounted the story of what happened to Bertha. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Plamondonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother) said she was

in her garden and looked up, and the house was on fire,â&#x20AC;? Bertha Skeba said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They lived for awhile in the grainery while they were building this house.â&#x20AC;? Larry Skeba served stateside in World War II, then returned home to farm. Bertha was working with one of Larryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sisters in Traverse City for (Concluded on Page 10)

Bertha Skeba doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how many square feet are in her house. She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you exactly how tall the ceilings are in her kitchen, although they look to be a good nine feet from the linoleum floor. And as to how much insulation is in the attic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even worth asking. But ask the wife of the late Larry Skeba about raising kids in the grand, old stone farmhouse at the corner of Otto and South Lake Leelanau roads, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got plenty to say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were nine children in my husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family,â&#x20AC;? said Skeba, now 79, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we had three. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good house.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still raising children, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our grandson wants to come up over the Fourth, and he wants to bring his tent and camp,â&#x20AC;? Skeba said. Her grandson is Joseph Houdek, music minister with Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Grand Rapids, who will be coming with his wife, Kathleen. The Skeba farm is up to the task of playing host. It comes with a big metal barn, outbuilding, historic split rock foundation barn, and the centerpiece of it all â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a stone house built in 1921. The homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stonework is irreplaceable. The house emerges from the

ground with four courses of split face granite, which supports an array of round stones that at one time were stacked alongside fields cleared for farming. The rocks come in all types, shapes and colors, creating a mozaic of Leelanau County. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how those stones were assembled that has allowed the Skeba farmhouse to stand up to the ages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a footing, they just started wider and worked up,â&#x20AC;? said Alen Skeba, who is taking over the farm for his father. Larry Skeba died on June 25, 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are no cracks in it.â&#x20AC;? Alen Skeba inspected the stonework for the umpteenth time in his life, and found it still perfect after 91 years of exposure to the elements. He appears entertained, as some new part of the design seems to emerge with each of his visits. The house remains a perfect fit for Bertha Skeba, especially with her daughters Jackie Herman and Vicki Houdek and her son Alen all living within a five minute drive. It comes with little maintenance, especially after a metal roof was installed a couple years ago, and is relatively cheap to heat due to a wood-burning stove in the basement.

Old stone house a rock through the ages

A FORMER school house at the corner of Otto and Maple Valley Rd. bears the same stone design as the Skeba farmhouse less than a mile away.

Another house just a stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throw away Bertha Skeba and her son Alen wish they had written down more information about the Skeba farm. They hope others avoid their mistake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knowing what we know now, we would write it down,â&#x20AC;? said Bertha, whose husband, Larry, died about one year ago. Gone with Larry was a deep knowledge of the history of the family farm, including the name of the mason responsible for the fine stone workmanship on the farmhouse. Stone buildings were commonly built in Leelanau County in years past, as farmers had access to plenty of building material after clearing fields. Such construction is rare today. A home owned by the Grant family off South Lake Leelanau Drive bears a strong resemblance to the Skeba farm, right down to rows of small stones over and under windows and doors. They are about one-half mile apart. A nearby schoolhouse converted into a home carries the same design. So was it one mason, or one family of masons, that built the stately structures? Some more research turned up the

answer. The Skebas believe the Sharnowski family of Cedar was responsible. A few phone calls later put this reporter in touch with Pauline Walters of Suttons Bay. She is the niece of Peter Sharnowski, the mason who was responsible for many stone homes and buildings in the Cedar and Lake Leelanau areas. Sharnowski, who served in World

War I, was also responsible for the stone building that once served as the auditorium and gymnasium for St. Mary School. Actually, there were two Peter Sharnowskis living in Leelanau County at that time, and the two should not be confused, Walters said. The mason Peter was from Cedar; his cousin was a farmer whose land off French Road is now farmed by the LaCross family.


that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leak air were installed, and a bathroom and sitting room were built to â&#x20AC;&#x153;square offâ&#x20AC;? the house. It was common to build farmhouses that were not square, but instead left out corners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then the laundry came upstairs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which was good,â&#x20AC;? Bertha said. One thing hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed at the farm â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a need for an outside source of income to keep it running. Larry Skeba worked in construction, and Alen is doing likewise. With the cherry crop all but wiped out by spring frosts, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll gain little income from the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25 acres of orchards. One thing that can be assured â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that the farm will be kept up. The outbuildings receive regular paintings, with red paint, of course. Especially the big old barn built over a stone foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad was always proud of that barn. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he kept it up. How did he say it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You never get paid for having a nice barn, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth it. Every seven or eight years, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d repaint it,â&#x20AC;? Alen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just walking by it the other day and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What wonderful workmanship,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Bertha added. It never ends.


Continued from Page 9 Michigan Bell, and eventually Larry and Bertha hooked up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a good guy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just super. He was so honest, and he worked hard,â&#x20AC;? said Bertha of her husband. She, too, was used to hard work, a big family and farm life. Her parents were Peter and Julia Osga of Almira. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were 14 of us in my family. Some times we had three in a bed. You wonder how we all got along. But we still get along. There are 10 of us left,â&#x20AC;? Skeba said. While sturdy, the Skeba home was a little drafty after Larry and Bertha were married on Oct. 25, 1955. Luckily, they were newlyweds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then it was kind of cold. But we had the woodstove in the living room. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the furnace like today. But we were just married,â&#x20AC;? Bertha said. Alen recalls getting special treatment in his bedroom selection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were two registers upstairs, one in the hallway and one in my bedroom. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how I was lucky enough to get the register,â&#x20AC;? he said. In 1974, the porch was built. And in 1978, the Skebas recalled a major remodel at the home. New windows

Oops! WEATHERING HAS taken its toll on the Kraitz cabin. The NPS has sealed its doors to prevent passers by from entering. by 20 feet, measuring 1.5 stories tall with a loft running the length of the cabin. To reach the loft, the cabin features a steep stairway along one of its walls. Six inch by six inch beams were mortised into the walls to form floor joists for the loft. According to the NPS, there’s no evidence of a fireplace within the cabin and was most likely heated with a wood stove. The roof of the cabin was constructed of round cedar posts, measuring four inches in diameter. The roofing itself was created using one-inch thick boards with asphalt shingles,

however there appear to be traces of older shingles constructed of wood. “As you can see there have been a few additions over the years,” Mann said. Originally the cabin had two doors measuring 73 inches high, but according to the NPS two more doors were added over the years by enlarging windows. In fact, the floor of the cabin was extended at one point to add more rooms. “These additions were frame construction, which is a later technique when sawmills produced boards,” Mann said. “These structures were put together with nails.” The cabin remains in fairly good condition. Though weathering has taken its toll, much of the structure remains. According to the NPS, this is due to the cabin being put to continuous use since its construction. Francis Kraitz lived in the cabin on the homestead farm and it remained on the property after Kraitz’s son Wenzel built a wood frame on the homestead. In keeping with Bohemian tradition, it acted as the “grandparent’s house” and was used for members of the extended family. In 1945, John Kraitz moved the structure beside School Lake before moving it again to its current location only a few years later. According to the NPS, several modifications were done to the home during these moves. “It’s a great piece of history,” Mann said. “We’re lucky to still have it in such great condition.”

From the road it doesn’t look like much. In fact, it could be mistaken for a 1940’s cottage, but beneath the green clapboard siding lies the oldest home in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. At least it was once a home. “When we first came into possession of it, we thought it might be an abandoned cottage,” National Park Service Architectural Historian Kim Mann said. “It wasn’t until further inspection that we realized how old it was.” South of M-22, the Kraitz Cabin sits about 100 feet off the east side of CR-669. The doors are screwed shut and the roof could use some work, but the structure remains a testament to the first white settlement in Cleveland Township and a history that dates back over 150 years. “Structures like this are usually hard to date,” Mann said. “But based on design similarities we can narrow it down to a relatively accurate time frame.” Built around 1856, the cabin is believed to be the first permanent home to occupy the Francis Kraitz homestead in the North Unity settlement. Kraitz likely selected the homestead, originally located across from St. Joseph church about a mile south of the cabin’s present location, because of its level, well-drained and fertile land. “It’s a hewn log cabin which is one of the first construction types found in this part of Michigan for European settlements,” Mann said. “This technique is done by hand with timber framing tools and something other than nails was used during construction.” The cabin’s construction is similar to the Shalda cabin, located on M-22 inside the Port Oneida Rural Historic. Logs were fitted as closely as possible so that each rested on the one below, allowing only the occasional gap. At the corner notches, logs were dovetailed with a saw to create a tight, sturdy fit. “The idea, when the settlers first got to North Unity, was to build a temporary home to get them through winter,” Mann said. “Then in the summer they’d focus on building permanent houses.” The Kraitz cabin measures 16 feet

Lori Lyman says it has more of a prairie influence as well as a little Frank Lloyd Wright. An overall contemporary feel was important, but she was adamant about creating a woodland look. Inside the house maintains the same type of vision. Very simple and clean, you won’t find any shelves or ledges in need of dusting. What you will find is beautiful quilts on the beds and natural looking grass cloth on the walls. The interior is efficient as well, touting Energy Star appliances in the kitchen and low-flush toilets in bathrooms. Lyman also used marmoleum linoleum flooring in the bathrooms, another very eco-friendly material. Lori Lyman’s ultimate goal is to build a similar home on the lake property. This one however, will be built in hopes of earning a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification. To accomplish this, Lyman will work closely with other professionals on all levels of the home. From insulation to plumbing, each person will provide input to reach the highest levels of efficiency. “The idea is that if two heads are better than one, than six is better than two,” Lori said laughingly. “The garden house and this one are both little prototypes to establish materials and figure out what works best for when we build the other house.” This move to go green is important to both Lori and Michael as they progress toward their LEED certification. “If you look at the impact on the global economy, it only makes sense to do your fair share to minimize your

carbon footprint,” Michael said. Lori was in agreement. “We all need to take responsibility and it’ll only happen through education,” Lori concluded. “That’s what the LEED process is all about.”

Lori and Michael Lyman are taking great strides to go green with their new home. As a landscape architect, Lori Lyman had clear direction when she and her husband Michael began building off Burdickville Road. The vision was to take steps in reducing their carbon footprint while preserving and restoring the integrity of the property they were building on. “It had to be ‘Up North’ materials, but with a different twist,” the 50-yearold Lori said. “I don’t think you’ll see this anywhere else.” Lori, who’s has been vacationing in Leelanau County since 1969, bought property on Glen Lake in 2009 before purchasing the property for their current home in 2010. Lori knew what she was looking for, and handled the design and drawings of the house. She also consulted with other architects throughout the process. “I’ve worked on a lot of really large custom homes,” she said. “I have a really good background in building construction and design, so I’m not the average bear.” The first step she took in developing both properties was to remove black locust trees, an invasive species. Nine of the trees were taken from the lake property; she spent another two years removing trees from the property on Burdickville Road. “We used the locust trees to build the deck on this house and on the garden house by the lake,” Lyman said. “The rest was donated to the National Lakeshore and was used to construct boardwalks and other things.” This was just the start of her plans for the eco-friendly home. Lori Lyman has made efforts to incorporate native and adaptive plants in her landscaping. She’s not going to plant a lawn, instead focusing on keeping the property natural looking. The walkway leading to the porch is made of stone recycled from another site, sparing it from being thrown away. The roof was designed with PAC-clad aluminum made of 85 percent recycled material. The 40x40-foot house is quite the spectacle as well. The clear grade cedar siding and unique design has drawn curious people passing by into the short gravel driveway. “It’s a custom cut,” Lori said. “Though it is a tongue and groove cedar, it has a custom bevel so you see more of a horizontal shadow line while getting a stronger reveal. “As far as the style, I wanted to go with something contemporary, clean and simple.” The uniqueness has drawn comparisons to some Asian designs, though

THIS HOME at 187 West St. in the Village of Northport has been on the market for two years. The home is in Leelanau County’s affordable housing program.

Northport’s low-income housing looking affordable now By Patti Brandt Of The Enterprise staff

After two years on the market, one county-built home in Northport has sold and another may have a buyer. The homes are part of Leelanau County’s affordable housing program. Ron Crummel, housing coordinator for the county, said he is waiting to hear if a perspective buyer for the home at 187 West St. qualifies for a mortgage. Over the last couple of years the houses have been shown 27 times and 17 prospective homeowners have applied for loans, Crummel said. Some decided against the two-story home because they were elderly and it has too many stairs, they had young children and there was not enough of a yard, or because the garage was built for just one car.

built in Lake Leelanau, all of which sold without problems. Another three homes were built in Suttons Bay at the same time the Northport homes were going up, Crummel said. The Suttons Bay homes were similar in size to those in Northport, though they had a different design because the Northport homes were built into a hillside. All three sold for $132,000 before they were even finished, he said. He attributes that to the fact that Suttons Bay is a little closer to Traverse City and it’s a “walkabout community” with amenities such as restaurants, shops and a theater, he said. The people who have purchased the homes — about half of whom are single moms — have been happy with them. “We’ve had families who have said

they never thought they would be able to afford a house,” he said. The homes are built in part with a grant from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority. Buyers typically spend much less on purchasing the homes than it costs to build them. To qualify a single person must earn less than $38,800; a two-person household less than $44,400; a three-person less than $49,900 and a family of four must earn less than $55,500. But they also must earn enough money; banks use a formula in which housing costs should be below 35 percent of a family’s monthly gross income. “There are a lot of people in this county that don’t make that income and they’re not able to purchase a home,” Crummel said.

do not have the greatest credit rating, she said, something that holds them back from home ownership. The original sale price of the two homes was set at $115,000; the home at 183 West St. went under contract this month for $99,000, Crummel said. In November of 2011 the home was appraised at $151,000; in June it was appraised at $100,000. It’s a sign of the times. In 2008, Crummel said, it was difficult to find a home for sale for less than $125,000. “But the market has really created affordable housing, which is a big reason why we’re not selling it,” Crummel said. The county has been in the homebuilding market since 2002, he said. Four homes were constructed in Empire, three were built north of Cedar and an eight-unit condominium was

“Their personal preferences and the characteristics of the home didn’t match,” Crummel said. “But the biggest problem was the people being unable to get a mortgage.” Sales fell through because hopeful buyers had income that was too low, credit ratings that weren’t high enough or they didn’t have enough time in on their jobs. Most standard lenders require people to have worked at their jobs for at least two years before qualifying for a mortgage. Denise Branch, a broker with Northern Leelanau Real Estate, said she has shown the homes several times. “They are really great houses,” Branch said. “People love them. They’re brand new three bedroom, two bath homes that have never been lived in.” But people with lower incomes often

For this week’s “What We’re Thinking” feature, we asked residents and visitors in Northport: In Michigan, homes that are not the primary residence of their owners are taxed at a much higher rate than “homesteads” — a two-tier system of taxation that greatly affects properties in Leelanau County. Do you agree with this concept of property taxation based on use?

“No. It should be taxed at a lower rate in fact because it’s not used as much. You’re not using roads and other things as much, so from that standpoint it’s not fair.” Janet Bunt, Windsor, Ontario with Janet Douglas

“I don’t think it’s very fair, probably due to the fact that (those with a second home) have little to no voice in the matter, so I’m somewhat against it because of that.” Fred Powell, Brooklyn, Mich.

“I think you should get taxed at a higher rate. If you’re not living in the area, you’re not really supporting the local economy all year round by buying groceries and other goods that would help local business.” Dinah Harwood of Cambridge, England pictured with Trish Dickens

“I agree they should be taxed at a higher rate than primary residencies because there’s a lot of money put into second homes and there’s no tax base on those homes. It’s as much a money shelter as it is an investment.” Patrick Burguard, Leelanau Township

“To some extent. Whether what is being charged now is equitable for people, I’m not sure because I’ve heard different view points. But I think there should be some charge because it does help support schools.” Colleen Cooper, Leelanau Township pictured with Katie Tajer, London, England

PAUL AND Janice Richards home on MacFarlane Road in Empire Township is a curiosity for motorized and non-motorized passersby.

Empire’s round house energy-efficient SAVOR SUMMER! Paul Richards is known to think “out of the box.”

And that’s just what the Empire Township man did when he built an octagonal home in Suttons Bay in the late 1980s and a round house about 20

years later on MacFarlane Road. “I’ve always been an ‘out of the box’ thinker,” said Richards, who moved into his round home in December 2008. “This (round) house has a kind of Native American bent because of the circle, it signifies the circle of life to me.” The home, located just east of Burdickville Hill, replaced a 1940s cottage which had seen better days. “It was on a crawlspace which filled with water each spring,” Richards said. “Mold became an issue so we had to take it down.” Richards, who established the Suttons Baykery in the 1980s, decided on a round house design for its energy efficiency and to take advantage of the technological improvements made over the past two decades. The home, which measures 50 feet in diameter, rests on a block foundation. However, the six-inch thick walls are made of insulated concrete forms (ICF) and have an R-value of 51. “They are six times stronger than a conventional wall,” Richards said. The one-story home features a cupola at the circle’s center around which Tibetan prayer flags are draped. The remainder of the home has 10-foot ceil(Concluded on Page 16)

Empire’s round house Continued from Page 15 ings, which provide ample room for Richards’ 6’9” frame. “There are no load-bearing walls so that allows for a lot more flexibility if you decide to remodel,” he said. Richards and his wife, Janice, lived in a rental next door during the construction process which, because they did much of the work themselves, took about a year. Not wanting to have carpet, the Richards selected polished concrete floors under which heat tubes were installed. “It’s polished concrete seeded with stones — all from Michigan,” Richards said. “The concrete floor made more sense long term.” The interior walls of the home are curved, which the Richards said added some time to the installation of the kitchen cabinets, but it wasn’t anything he’d consider a “challenge.” Adding interest to the cabinets are their hardware which are metal butterflies and dragonflies Countertops are also curved, covered in laminate. Although that too will be converted to concrete as time and money allows, he said. Energy efficiency of the home has proven impressive. “We’ve cut our utility cost by twothirds,” Richards said. During the winter, the round house holds heat for days. And in the summer, maintains a constant temperature of

about 78 degrees. “It’s been 104 out here on the patio and it was 78 in doors,” the home owner said. “In the winter, it’s been close to 20 below outdoors and it stays about 68 in the house.” The exterior of the house doesn’t lend itself to the application of customary materials such as wood or vinyl. Richards covered the exterior in stucco. The circular house and nearby “guest house,” also a circle but smaller, are a curiosity to passersby, including many cyclists attempting to climb Burdickville Hill. “We hear everything. Most of the time it’s ‘What is that?’” Richards said. Another repeated query is how the Richards arrange furniture in a home with round walls? The response is simple. “Every room has at least one 90-degree corner,” he said, smiling. Like any homeowner, Richards said there are a couple things he’d like to add to the mix. “The attic has extreme temperatures and new technology will allow me to warm our water by running it through the attic,” Richards said. The only thing he’d change? “I’d have the vegetable garden I didn’t plant this year because the deer keep eating it,” he said. “We may end up putting in fruit trees and the vegetables behind the house. A 10-foot fence to keep the critters out (on the front lawn) wouldn’t look that great.”
