Beach arrested again, resigns Former assistant prosecutor faces second set of alcohol-related charges Zac Britton (231) 439-9398 -

Duane Beach resigned Thursday as chief assistant prosecutor with the Emmet County Prosecutor’s Of fice, following his second operating while intoxicated arrest in less than three weeks on Wednesday evening. “It’s an unfortunate situation,” said James Linderman, the Emmet County Prosecutor. “He did a lot to keep the county safe. A very good prosecutor.” According to 90th District Court documentation, Beach has been charged with two misdemeanor counts following

his second arrest — operating while intoxicated with a BAC (blood alcohol content) 0.08 or higher, a misdemeanor with a punishment of 93 days in jail and $500 fine; open container in vehicle, a misdemeanor with a punishment of 90 days in jail and $100 fine. He was pulled over in a 2005 Pontiac by an Emmet County Sheriff ’s deputy in Springvale Township at approximately 6:51 p.m. on Wednesday with a subsequent blood test showing a .11 BAC. Beach, who has a residence in Springvale Township, remained lodged in Emmet County Jail as of today, Friday.

According to documentation, he will remain in jail until a SCRAM monitor (alcohol tether) is in place and he posts a cash/10Beach percent bond for his set $2,000 bail. A pre-trial hearing has been set for 9:30 a.m. March 6 with Cheboygan County prosecutor Daryl Vizina assigned as the prosecutor. Beach, 62, had been on paid leave following his initial OWI arrest on Jan. 19, although he was in 90th District Court on Jan. 21 assisting in the pre-

liminary examination involving the murder of Lyle Kopenkoskey. Linder man clarified today that Beach’s paid leave involved continuation of benefits and use of accrued vacation time, but “we weren’t technically paying his salary.” He had worked at the Emmet County prosecutor’s of fice since 2006. According to a case file for the Jan. 19 arrest, the Michigan State Police pulled over Beach’s vehicle on Greenwood Road, near Maxwell Road, in Springvale Township southeast of Petoskey. Beach was arrested and released after posting a $200 cash bond at approximate-

ly 6:30 a.m. on Jan. 20. He faces two charges on the prior arrest — operating with a high BAC (high blood alcohol content of .17 or higher), a misdemeanor with a punishment of 180 days in jail and $700 fine; open container in vehicle. That case was reassignment to be prosecuted by Vizina and to be heard in front of 87th District Court Judge Patricia Morse in Gaylord. A pre-trial conference had been set for 9 a.m. on Feb. 20. Pe t o s ke y at t o r n e y B r ya n Klawuhn is listed as Beach’s defense attorney for both cases.

ot some spare time? Do you want to be more involved? If so, your community wants you! As the median age of those involved in service clubs, nonprofit organizations and civic committees inches into the 60s, and membership growth for many has been flat or declining, these groups are seeking new blood and fresh ideas. They are reaching out in new ways to increase their membership and personalizing their approaches to membership retention. Jane Millar, a member of the Rotary Club of Petoskey and immediate past district governor for the Northern Michigan region, said, “Not only Rotary, but all service clubs are addressing the issue of increasing young membership. Service clubs can no longer be how founders started them with prominent men meeting for a meal every week. A big change for some service clubs was the addition of women, so they do change and must continue to change to meet community and member needs.” Rotary International touts 1.2 million members

On Feb. 5, the U.S. Ar my Corps of Engineers released the official news: that Lake Michigan and Lake Huron have officially scraped the lowest levels recorded. Lakes Michigan and Huron — considered one lake connected at the Straits of Mackinac — measured an average of 576.02 feet for the month of January 2013, lower than the previous all-time low of 576.05 set in March 1964. The Army corps still blames higher amounts of evaporation from the lake. The year 2012, which was a year of nearrecord warmth for Michigan, and the warmest year on record for parts of Michigan, wreaked havoc on evaporation in the Great Lakes. “As a whole, evaporation on lakes Michigan-Huron was about a foot more than normal,” said Keith Kompoltowicz, meteorologist for the U.S. Ar my Corps of Engineers, based in Detroit. “To simplify that, if we had normal evaporation rates, we would have one more foot of water on the

lake surface.” Warm water was also an issue the Great Lakes were dealing with: 2012’s record-setting air temperatures heated the Great Lakes to record-setting temperatures. In July, a buoy in Lake Michigan measured a record high — the temperature in that portion of the lake reached 85.1 degrees. “The highest evaporation rates occur when you have very war m water temperatures and very cold air flowing over those warmer waters,” said Kompoltowicz. Kompoltowicz listed the “very hot summer” transitioning into fall as a critical time for the lake levels. “And as you get into early winter, when you get Arctic outbreaks of air, those are the times you get the most evaporation,” said Kompoltowicz. What lake levels might not necessarily be blamed upon, however, is long-term belowaverage precipitation rates.

New York City, New England brace for major storm Bridget Murphy Associated Press

BOSTON — A stor m poised to dump up to 3 feet of snow from New York City to Boston and beyond be ginning Friday could be one for the record books, forecasters warned, as residents scurried to stock up on food and water and road crews readied salt and sand. Before the first snowflake had fallen, Boston, Providence, R.I., Hartford, Conn., and other towns and cities in New England and upstate N e w Yo rk t ow n s c a n celed school Friday, and airlines scratched more than 3,700 flights through Saturday, with the disruptions from the blizzard certain to ripple across the U.S. “This one doesn’t come along every day. This is going to be a dangerous winter storm,” said Alan Dunham, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Taunton, M a s s. “ W h e reve r yo u need to get to, get there by Friday afternoon and don’t plan on leaving.” The snow began falling Friday morning in some areas, with the heaviest amounts falling at night and into Saturday. Wind gusts could reach 75 mph. Widespread power failures were feared, along with flooding in coastal areas still recovering from Superstorm Sandy in October. Boston could get up to 3 feet of snow, while New York City was expecting 10 to 12 inches. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said plows and 250,000 tons of salt were being put

on standby. To the south, Philadelphia was looking at a possible 2 to 5 inches. “We hope forecasts are exaggerating the amount of snow, but you never can tell,” Bloomberg said, adding that at least the bad weather is arriving on a weekend, when the traffic is lighter and snowplows can clean up the streets more easily. Amtrak said its Northeast trains will stop running Friday after noon. The organizers of New York’s Fashion Week — a closely watched series of fashion shows held under a big tent — said they will have extra crews to help with snow removal and will turn up the heat and add an extra layer to the venue. Airlines have cancelled 3,775 flights in preparation for the Northeast storm, according to airl i n e t r a ck i n g we b s i t e F l i g h t Aw a r e. A t N e w

York City’s three main air por ts, most domestic carriers planned to cease operations between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Friday, resuming after noon on Saturday, F lightAware said. At Boston’s Logan and other New England airports, most airlines were to cease operations between noon and 4 p.m., and would restart Saturday afternoon. Blizzard warnings were posted for parts of New Jersey and New York’s Long Island, as well as portions of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, including Har tford, New Haven, Conn., and Providence. The warnings extended into New Hampshire and Maine. In New England, it could prove to be among the top 10 snowstorms in history, and perhaps even break Boston’s record of 27.6 inches, set in 2003,

forecasters said. The last major snowfall in souther n New England was well over a year ago — the Halloween storm of 2011. Dunham said southern New England has seen less than half its normal snowfall this season, but “we’re going to catch up in a heck of a hurry.” He added: “Everybody’s going to get plastered with snow.” Diane Lopes was among the shoppers who packed a supermarket Thursday in the coastal fishing city of Gloucester, Mass. She said she went to a different grocery earlier in the day but it was too crowded. Lopes said she has strep throat and normally wouldn’t leave the house but had to stock up on basic foods — “and lots of wine.” She chuckled at the excitement the storm was creating in a place where snow is routine.

“Why are us New Englanders so crazy, right?” she said. At a Shaw’s supermarket in Belmont, Mass., Susan Lichtenstein stocked up, with memories of a 1978 blizzard on her mind. “This is panic shopping, so bread, milk, a snow shovel in case our snow shovel breaks,” she said. I n N e w H a m p s h i r e, Dartmouth College student Evan Diamond and other members of the ski team were getting ready for races at the Ivy League school’s winter carnival. “We’re pretty excited about it because this has been an unusual winter for us,” he said. “We’ve been going back and forth between having really solid cold snaps and then the rain washing everything away.” But he said the snow might be too much of a

good thing this weekend: “For skiing, we like to have a nice hard surface, so it will be kind of tough to get the hill ready.” The governors of Connecticut and Massachusetts ordered nonessential state workers to stay home Friday and urged travelers to stay home. Ter rance Rodrigue z, a door man at a luxury apar tment complex in Boston, took the forecast in stride. “It’s just another day in Boston. It’s to be expected. We’re in a town where it’s going to snow,” he said. “It’s like doomsday prep. It doesn’t need to be. People just take it to the extreme.”

Man sentenced in assault on gay gas station patron DETROIT (AP) — A man who admitted to assaulting another man at a Detroit gas station because he believed the victim was gay has been sentenced to 18 months in prison. The Justice Department says Everett Avery of Detroit was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Detroit. He earlier pleaded guilty to a hate crime. A message seeking comment was sent Friday to a lawyer for Avery. Authorities say Avery punched Justin Alesna in the face in March 2011. Alesna says he was in line to buy cigarettes when a man told him he was standing too close and directed anti-gay slurs toward him. Alesna says he told the man he was gay and was punched twice. Alesna later posted an Internet video showing his facial injuries from the attack.

Another sewage spill reported in Kalamazoo area KALAMAZOO (AP) — Authorities say another raw sewage spill has been reported in the Kalamazoo area. reports about 1,000 gallons of untreated, raw sewage spilled on Thursday from a manhole on Kalamazoo’s west side. Officials say a blockage was removed shortly after the spill, which was cleaned up. In January, officials reported at least three raw sewage spills in the Kalamazoo area. One was up to 1,500 gallons, another was at least 3,000 gallons and another was at least 300,000 gallons. Officials have said they don’t expect any long-term damage from the spills.

ICE FISHING ON THE BAY Bryce Kucharek of Petoskey fishes for steelhead through the ice on Friday morning at Petoskey’s waterfront. When asked how he fights the hard-fighting game fish through the ice, he said, “Very carefully.”

Court spikes lawsuit over road dust, fatal COPEMISH (AP) — T he family of a teenager who was killed while driving to perform at a high school graduation can’t sue a Northern Michigan road agency over dust blamed for the fatal crash, the state Supreme Court said Thursday. The justices, 6-0, overturned a decision by the Michigan appeals court and directed a judge to dismiss the case against the Manistee County Road Commission. In 2010, Debra Ha g er tyKraemer, 17, was driving to a Mesick High School graduation to perform with the band when she was killed. Her family says she smashed her car into a tree after she was blind-

ed by road dust stirred up by a passing vehicle near Copemish. The lawsuit alleged that the road commission was negligent in how it maintained Litzen Road. A series of Supreme Court decisions, however, has made it difficult to sue government agencies over road conditions. In this case, the court again said the road commission is immune. The justices said a “dust cloud rising from an unpaved road is not a defect” that would trigger the county’s liability. In addition, “an accumulation of gravel, whether natural or otherwise, does not im-

plicate the defendant’s duty to maintain the highway in reasonable repair,” the court said, referring to a key threshold under Michigan law. The decision was delivered in a one-page order, not a formal opinion. Nonetheless, it ends the lawsuit. L. Page Graves, an attorney for Hagerty-Kraemer’s family, said he’s disappointed the court threw out the case without hearing arguments. He believes the justices wrongly applied legal precedent. “ M y cl i e n t n eve r h a d a second in open court to debate these legal issues,” said Graves, who wants the court to reconsider.

House speaker: No mandatory vaginal ultrasounds LANSING (AP) — A bill that would have required women to undergo vaginal ultrasound examinations before they get abortions won’t continue through the House, the chamber’s Republican speaker said Thursday. Rep. Jase Bolger of Marshall issued a statement after introduction of a bill to mandate pre-abortion ultrasound examinations with the most sophisticated equipment available. The measure is House Bill 4187. “While I want to be sure women have access to the best technology available, I have absolutely no interest in forcing a woman to have a transvaginal

ultrasound,” Bolger said. “This House of Re presentatives will not pass a bill mandating transvaginal ultrasounds.” Bolger said he wants to “increase the value of life in Michigan” through better prenatal care, support for women with unplanned pregnancies and better adoption procedures. Similar legislation has failed before. A spokeswoman for Rep. Tim Greimel, leader of minority Democrats in the House, praised Bolger’s statement. “Greimel commends the speaker for standing up to the extremist right-wing members of his caucus and rejecting this proposal to force women

to undergo an invasive procedure that is unnecessary and unwarranted,” Katie Carey, Greimel’s press secretary, said. Another anti-abortion measure is before the Republicanled state Senate. It would prohibit insurers from funding abortions under plans provided by businesses and organizations, but would permit elective abortion coverage. The measure is Senate Bill 138. In December, Republican Gov. Rick Snyder vetoed an overhaul of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan because of an anti-abortion provision. Another effort to pass the overhaul without the anti-abortion clause is under way.

Senators see path to immigrants’ legalization WASHINGTON (AP) — Illegal immigrants might face around a 10-year wait to become legal per manent U.S. residents under sweeping immigration overhaul legislation taking shape in the Senate, negotiators said Thursday. That’s shorter than some current wait times though longer than some advocates might like. Democratic Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois and Robert Menendez of New Jersey discussed the timeline in a roundtable meeting with Hispanic-focused media. The senators and their aides emphasized that nothing has been agreed to and the timeline could change. The timeline refers to how long someone would have to wait in a new provisional legal status before qualifying for permanent residency and a green card. The legislation is expected to immediately grant provisional legal status to many of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants now in the country, but they couldn’t get green cards until the border has been secured, and they would have to meet criteria including learning English and paying fines. The process “is likely to be in the range of 10 years, I say

in the range because we have not nailed this down,” Durbin said. He said various factors go into the timeline, including the need to establish border security first, something Republicans have insisted on. Menendez said a 10-year wait would not be inordinate considering that under current law many illegal immigrants face a 10-year prohibition against returning to the country if they leave. “If you think about it, under current law there is a 10-year bar, so the bottom line is you would have to wait anyway,” Menendez said. “The difference is you would get the opportunity to be here, to come forward, to work, to travel, and in doing so to earn your pathway” to citizenship. A green card is the crucial first step toward citizenship although it takes up to five years for a green card holder to become a citizen under current law. So if it takes 10 years to get a green card, the total wait time for citizenship could be closer to 15, advocates fear. “We understand that bipartisan lawmaking requires compromise. But we think waiting 15 years for a chance to

become a citizen is too long,” said Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice. “We will continue to fight for a clear, direct and inclusive path to citizenship that has achievable requirements and a more reasonable time frame.” The emerging legislation, which faces an uncertain future in Congress, is expected to require illegal immigrants to petition for citizenship behind those already attempting the process. That means some length of wait would be inevitable, although experts said lawmakers could shorten the wait times by making more green cards available. “Going to the back of the line is inevitably a lengthy process because of current backlogs for which there have been insufficient numbers of visas in current law,” said Doris Meissner, a senior fellow at the Migration Policy Institute. Wait times vary greatly under current law for people to get green cards, depending on factors including what country they’re from. For Mexicans trying to join family members legally in the U.S. the wait time can be 12 to 15 years, Meissner said.

Petoskey Schools Board of Education members will consider the appointment of a member to fill a board vacancy during a special meeting Monday, Feb. 11. The meeting be gins at 8:30 a.m. Monday at the Spitler Administration Building, 1130 Howard St. The vacancy on the board recentWaldvogel ly opened when long-time member Jack Waldvogel resigned, citing health reasons. Board president Ralph Tramontini said several area resiReed dents have been floated as potential candidates. But based on her experience and credentials, he added that he’d like to see Kathy Reed — who reTramontini cently left the board after filling in during another vacancy — appointed. “I’m definitely in favor of Kathy in that spot,” he said, adding that some other board members also seem interested in Reed’s appointment. In 2011, the board had appointed Reed to serve in a vacant position — which opened as a result of Tom Rellinger’s board resignation — until it could be filled in an election. Tramontini won that board seat in last November’s election. Noting the recent transitions in Michigan’s election calendar, Reed said last year that she missed the filing deadline for the November ballot. She then ran unsuccessfully in the election as a write-in candidate. Once the board makes an appointment to fill the new vacancy, it will be effective for the remainder of Waldvogel’s term, which runs through 2014.

Our View

New electoral vote approach would present new problems


proposal to change how Michigan’s electoral votes are allocated in choosing the U.S. president is facing resistance from some state policymakers — and we see their response as appropriate. State Rep. Pete Lund, RShelby Township, recently indicated plans to re-introduce legislation for modifying how Michigan’s electoral votes are awarded. It would replace a system in which the candidate prevailing in the statewide popular vote receives all of Michigan’s electoral votes. In large part, Lund’s proposal would award electoral votes based on how candidates perform in the state’s 14 congressional districts. Fourteen of the state’s 16 slots in the electoral college would be divided up based on which candidate prevails in each district, and the remaining two electoral votes would go to electors for the candi-

date who wins statewide. In a state where culture and economics vary considerably with geography, this more localized approach to awarding electoral votes might seem sensible at first glance. One could argue that it would increase the voice for less-populated areas, where political interests may not always align with regions more flush with voters. But when considering the process by which Michigan’s congressional districts are shaped, the proposed allocation gives us some pause. Once Michigan’s populationbased seat allotment for the U.S. House of Representatives is determined based on each U.S. census, the state legislature sets out to draw boundaries for each representative’s district. There’s opportunity here, at least, for a political party controlling state legislature to map the districts in a way that ben-

districts, GOP candidate Mitt Romney would have taken a majority of the state’s electoral votes despite President Barack Obama winning the statewide popular vote by 450,000. Our concern isn’t with one particular party gaining an edge in a state’s presidential vote. No matter which of the parties dominates a state’s legislature, the potential for the controlling party to gerrymander congressional district layouts would bring an air of manipulation to presidential votes if the new approaches took hold. Some state leaders’ recent comments make that prospect seem less likely in Michigan, though. When recently sharing his thoughts on the current winner-take-all approach with reporters, state Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville, R-Monroe, said: “I don’t know that it’s broken,

efits that party in congressional races. Awarding electoral votes based on candidates’ performance in individual congressional districts is an approach that’s recently been discussed in other states, too. Like Michigan, some of these states have trended Democratic in recent presidential elections, while the GOP has shown some strength in congressional delegations and state legislatures. Not surprisingly, there’s been outcry among Democrats about the apparent Republican advantage that the new approach would bring to presidential races. A look at the most recent presidential election indicates the outcome in Michigan would have been different with the district-based approach in place. With Republican voters more plentiful than Democrats in nine of the state’s 14 congressional

so I don’t know if I want to fix it.” Republican Gov. Rick Snyder’s early comments on the proposed change didn’t signal a position for or against, but he more recently noted skepticism about the new approach and questioned its timing. On its own, the concept of dividing presidential electoral votes along congressional district lines may have some merits worth further exploration. Before embracing its implementation in Michigan though, we’d see a critical step to be taken: revamping the process for drawing district boundaries so that partisan advantage is removed from it.

Call Obama’s sequester bluff WASHINGTON — For the first time since Election Day, President Obama is on the defensive. That’s because on March 1, automatic spending cuts (“sequestration”) go into effect — $1.2 trillion over 10 years, half from domestic (discretionary) programs, half from defense. The idea had been proposed and promoted by the White House during the July 2011 debt-ceiling negotiations. The political calculation was that such draconian defense cuts would drive the GOP to offer concessions. It backfired. The Republicans have offered no concessions. Obama’s bluff is being called and he’s the desperate party. He abhors the domestic cuts. And as commander in chief he must worry about indiscriminate Pentagon cuts that his own defense secretary calls catastrophic. So Tuesday, Obama urgently called on Congress to head off the sequester with a short-term fix. But instead of offering an alternative $1.2 trillion in cuts, Obama demanded a “balanced approach,” coupling any cuts with new tax increases. What should the Republicans do? Nothing. Republicans should explain — message No. 1 — that in the fiscal-cliff deal the president already got major tax hikes with no corresponding spending cuts. Now it is time for a nation $16 trillion in debt to cut spending. That’s balance. The Republicans finally have leverage. They should use it. Obama capitalized on the automaticity of the expiring Bush tax cuts to get what he wanted at the fiscal cliff — higher tax rates. Republicans now have automaticity on their side. If they do nothing, the $1.2 trillion in cuts go into effect. This is the one time Republicans can get cuts under an administration that has no intent of cutting anything. Get them while you can. Of course, the sequester is terrible policy. The domestic cuts will be crude and the Pentagon cuts damaging. This is why the Republican House has twice passed bills offering more rationally allocated cuts. (They curb, for

Charles Krauthammer Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist The Washington Post

example, entitlement spending as well.) Naturally, the Democratic Senate, which hasn’t passed a budget since before the iPad, has done nothing. Nor has the president — until his Tuesday plea. The GOP should reject it out of hand and plainly explain (message No. 2): We are quite prepared to cut elsewhere. But we already raised taxes last month. If the president wants to avoid the sequester -- as we do — he must offer a substitute set of cuts. Otherwise, Mr. President, there is nothing to discuss. Your sequester — Republicans need to reiterate that the sequester was the president’s idea in the first place — will go ahead. Obama is trying to sell his “balanced” approach with a linguistic sleight-of-hand. He insists on calling his proposed tax hikes — through eliminating deductions and exemptions — “tax reform.” It’s not. Tax reform, as defined even by the White House’s own webpage on the subject, begins with lowering tax rates. It then makes up the lost revenue by closing loopholes. Real tax reform is revenue neutral. It’s a way to clean the tax code by eliminating unfair, inefficient and market-distorting loopholes on the one hand while lowering rates to stimulate economic growth on the other. Obama has zero interest in lowering tax rates. He just got through raising them at the fiscal cliff and has made perfectly clear ever since that he fully intends to keep raising taxes.

Letters from our readers Community partners provide compassion, caring Editor: While it may seem late to be sharing a Christmas story, this particular story illustrates the kindness, compassion and kinship that exists among local caregivers and emergency responders yearround. This story unfolded just before Christmas, on Dec. 21, 2012. On that wintry day, we at Hospice of Northwest Michigan learned that the residence of one of our inhome hospice patients in Central Lake had lost power. Her family — exhausted from lack of sleep — was trying to care for her, but it became impossible to keep her comfortable any longer. She needed a respite bed, right away. After learning that there was no room for the necessary accommodations at the hospital, we contacted The Brook of Boyne City, an Assisted and Independent

Living Facility. The staff at The Brook was in the midst of preparing for their own Christmas celebration, but they immediately offered an available room for our patient. On a moment’s notice, Boyne City Ambulance agreed to transport the patient from her home to The Brook. The ambulance team made every effort to ensure her ride was gentle and comfortable, and they even helped to get her settled in her room upon arrival. A hospital bed, oxygen and a special mattress were waiting for her, courtesy of Airway Oxygen; all of the equipment was set up and her bed was warmed. After the patient’s arrival, the staff at The Brook went above and beyond to offer care and comfort, taking time during their holiday celebration to check on her and see to her every need. They worked closely via telephone with our snowbound hospice care staff.

In the midst of a winter storm, each of these community partners did their part to help a family spend a few treasured moments with their loved one during the Christmas season, in a place where she could rest comfortably, without suffering. After the family returned home for some much-needed rest of their own, the patient passed away peacefully in her sleep. The loss of a loved one is never easy, but the compassionate care provided by The Brook Assisted and Independent Living Facility — coupled with the generosity of Boyne City Ambulance and Airway Oxygen — makes us proud to be a part of this wonderful Northern Michigan community. They came together at a difficult time to help give a gift no one else could give. We at Hospice of Northwest Michigan are honored to serve alongside them.

Letters from our readers

Editor: The Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce “State of the Community” presentation disappointed many of us in the community because it lacked any mention, or consideration, of the importance of the arts. The Crooked Tree Arts Center, the Northern Michigan Chorale, the Little Traverse Choral Society, the Little Traverse Civic Theater, and the Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra provide the region with an abundance of outstanding arts opportunities. School music and theater programs add exceptional activities for students and the community. The dance program at the Crooked Tree Arts Center has gained a national reputation for excellence and last year the Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra was one of 100 orchestras nationally to receive a National Endowment for the Arts award. Our community is enriched by the vibrancy of the organizations and artists among us. The arts not only provide entertainment, educational opportunities, and inspiration; they have a definite impact on the economy of the region. When considering the state of our community, most importantly, the arts play an decisive role in the quality of life here. Robert Pattengale Petoskey

Ottawa Elementary teachers, staff are angels Editor: Petoskey residents are incredibly lucky to have such magnificent teachers in our public schools. My daughters attend Ottawa Elementary. This is our fourth year at the school and I just have to rave about the teachers there. All of the teachers throughout our four years attending the school have been marvelous. These teachers provide opportunities in all kinds of ways to boost a child’s confidence, provide guidance and TLC amongst the busy schedules

that they must adhere to. How does a parent ever truly express to a teacher what a difference they make in their child’s life? Teachers are absolutely angels plucked from heaven to guide our children through life by providing the tools necessary to make a difference in the world. I am absolutely blessed that both of my girls have and have had such extraordinary teachers in every aspect of their education! These women who have taught my daughters have been pillars of strength, great confidence, extreme creativity, and remarkable inspiration; all of the attributes that every mother would want their child to be exposed to. It’s important to recognize teachers and all who work with children; art, music, gym, media center teachers, health care aides, Title I aides, bus drivers, custodians, secretaries, lunch servers and everyone else who encounters a child during the day. These people make a difference, these people each have a hand in sculpting a child. As a parent I am truly blessed that each person who has had a hand in my children’s education have been absolutely outstanding individuals. I appreciate each one of them more than they will ever know. Maria Spalding Petoskey

Kirtland’s own words Editor: As I wake yet again to the incessant drone of the Kirtland Pellet Plant four miles distant, (No, they have not been “shut down” by the Planning Commission as UpNorthLive reports), I try to make sense of their brief, convoluted history. I am always drawn back to their ‘letter’ in the Boyne City Gazette dated Dec. 19, 2011, where they attempt to allay fears of concerned Boyne City residents. In the letter, they admit that their noise is “objectionable,” and say they were “wrong” in thinking otherwise. Thirteen months later at the January 2013, Boyne City Planning Commission meeting, Kirtland offered a rudimentary sketch, lacking specifics and a time-line, for enclosures for the offending equipment. In the letter they dismiss their “spectacular plume” as mostly “water vapor” and is “safe.” The MDEQ has recently issued a report stating three of Kirtland’s five stacks are emitting particulate matter beyond established limits. Again; Kirtland continues to operate, a mere stone’s throw from the entire Boyne City Public School campus. I urge all concerned citizens to contact your state and local representatives regarding this issue. Michael Smith Boyne City

Petoskey Pointe project unnecessarily delayed

previous mayor Ted Pall. He and our current mayor Bill Fraser, along with some at the time council members supported this group and forced a referendum vote. This vote was defeated, however, it held up the start of the project for close to two years. During this period of time our national economy took a nosedive. The financial markets went into a tailspin. Development money dried up, and banks all over the country quit lending money. This is a well documented fact. As a result of the delay for the vote, Petoskey Pointe developers lost the financial backing they had acquired. Now that the development is dormant our city fathers are concerned about the hole’s safety and aesthetic appeal. It’s really a shame the people responsible for this disaster aren’t held accountable for the damage they caused with this delay. Without this opposition group we residents of Petoskey would have an attractive entrance to our unique and beautiful city. A new condominium complex, conference center, bank and a badly needed downtown parking garage. To paraphrase Paul Harvey, “That’s the other side of the Petoskey Pointe story.” Gary Phillips Petoskey

Now in and inconsistent and illogical move they are considering making the ordinances regarding wind power more stringent than the state guidelines. Might this move not also make the municipality open to future lawsuits? The concerns that seem to be expressed in this regard are with noise pollution. While noise pollution is a serious problem, as evidenced by the plant in Boyne City, it is less of an environmental hazard than the toxic, particulate, air pollution of coal fired electrical plants.

not from the generator? We can’t take down trees to reduce the noise or erect barriers to shield property owners from the sounds of the howling wind? Might we have to consider regulating the decibel levels of all the gas generators that were running 24-7 during recent power outages? We have recently moved to allow the use of fireworks that are well above these decibel levels, and most would agree that a sudden late night explosion is more disturbing than the hum of someone trying to create energy from a resource that is uniquely abundant in our beautiful area. Encouraging, rather than discouraging, green energy could well be an economic boon to this area and bring jobs to the county. I urge the Board of Commissioners to vote consistently with the best interests of the majority of residents in mind rather than a few special interests and fear of future lawsuits.

KRAUTHAMMER FROM A4 sage No. 3: The sequester is one thing, real tax reform quite another. The sequester is for cutting. The only question is whether it will be done automatically and indiscriminately — or whether the president will offer an alternative set of cuts. Then we can take up real tax reform. Reprise the landmark ReaganTip O’Neill-Bill Bradley tax reform of 1986, a revenue-neutral spur to economic growth and efficiency, and to fairness for those not powerful enough to manipulate the tax code. The country needs tax reform. But first it needs to rein in out-of-control spending. To succeed in doing that, Republicans must remain united under one demand: cuts with no

taxes — or we will let the sequester go into effect. The morning after, they should sit down with Obama for negotiations on real tax reform as recommended by the president’s own SimpsonBowles commission: broaden the base, lower the rates. Any time, any place. Geneva, perhaps? The skiing is good. Skeet shooting too.

Ellsworth schools in the ‘Winners’ Circle’ ELLSWORTH — Ellsworth Community Schools has been honored with the prestigious Winners’ Circle award from the Michigan Association of School Administrators. The goal of the Winners’ Circle is to give recognition to innovative school programs that achieve results, and that can be replicated in other districts throughout Michigan. Ellsworth has been honored for its Lancer Leap program which shortens each semester by two weeks in order to offer a special four-week term at the end of the school year. Lancer Leap addresses the needs of both those who are behind and those who deserve a chance to take some demanding hands-on elective classes. Classes offered during Lancer Leap have included canoe building, forensic science, book writing and publishing, theater, dance, vocal music and archaeology. Of the following Michigan school districts honored with 2013 Winners Circle awards, Ellsworth Community Schools received the highest score.

Snyder wants higher hunting, fishing license fees ecutive Director Erin McDonough said. T h e p r o p o s a l wo u l d b o o s t ye a rl y r e ve n u e from hunting and fishing license sales from $48.2 million to $66.6 million — a nearly 40 percent increase, with the biggest hikes imposed on out-ofstate residents. It would create a “base” hunting license costing $10 for most in-state residents, with lower rates for youths and seniors. For out-of-state hunters, the price would be $150. The base license would pay for hunting waterfowl, migratory birds and small game such as rabbits and squirrels. But separate fees still would b e l ev i e d fo r h u n t i n g game species, and some would go up. Tags for deer would rise from $15 to $20, and the bear license would go from $15 to $25. Turkey license fees would remain unchanged at $15

John Flesher AP Environmental Writer

T R AV E R S E C I T Y — G o v. R i c k S n y d e r o n Thursday proposed hiking some of Michigan’s hunting and fishing license fees to raise money for outdoor recreation and wildlife conservation programs. The fees are included in the Republican governor’s proposed budget and would be the first significant increases since 1997, officials with the Department of Natural Resources said. Snyder also requested more money for the DNR from the general fund, the state’s primary checkbook. If the funding package is approved by the Legislature, it would provide more than $28 million in new revenue, enabling the department to hire 41 additional conservation officers and improve parks, waterway, trails and habitat for fish and game. D N R D i re c t o r Ke i t h Creagh said the proposal is fitting considering the role outdoor recreation plays in supporting the state’s economic recovery. “Michigan doesn’t have to take a back seat to anybody on world-class resources,” he said, addi n g t h at t h e p l a n w a s devised in consultation with sporting groups that understand the need for more money. The license fees’ purchasing power has eroded 45 percent since the last general increase, officials said. The Michigan United Conservation Clubs, which represents hundreds of outdoor groups, released a statement that stopped short of endorsi n g t h e i n c re a s e s bu t praised the Snyder administration for providing more infor mation about how revenue generated from license fees is used. “We are currently evaluating the proposal and taking a hard look at current DNR spending,” Ex-

per season. Licenses to fish for particular species, which cost $15, would be eliminated. The fee for a seasonal all-species license would drop from $28 to $25 for instate residents while rising from $42 to $75 for anglers from elsewhere. The price of a one-day fishing license would rise from $7 to $15. The off-road vehicle license cost would rise from $16.25 to $26.25, with the extra revenue earmarked mostly to improve the 3,700-mile trail network, Creagh said. In addition to the fee increases, Snyder is asking for a 57 percent jump in funding for the DNR from the general fund, from $17.6 million this year to $27.2 million in 2014-15. The biggest chunk of new money sought for the department would pay for new conservation officers, boosting their ranks from

173 to 214. Their numbers have dwindled over the years and are expected to fall further without new hires, as 54 are eligible for retirement by 2019. Lt. Gov. Brian Calley said during a briefing for legislators that Michigan ranks 19th nationally in the number of conservation officers. “This is an area ... that’s been sacrificed in the past and we need to continue to make investment in,” he said. Spending also would increase by $1 million for cold-water fisheries habitat improvements and nearly $1 million for more fish rearing and stocking. Grants totaling about $2 million would go to outside org anizations for habitat improvements in inland lakes and streams, while nearly $1.5 million would be distributed for increasing acreage managed for wildlife habitat.

GM bringing out diesel version of Chevrolet Cruze Tom Krisher AP Auto Writer

General Motors is following the Volkswagen playbook by bringing a dieselpowered small car from Europe to the United States. The automaker introduced the diesel version of the Chevrolet Cruze compact on Thursday at the Chicago Auto Show. Volkswagen, which offers diesels in a number of its cars including the Jetta compact sedan, gets almost 18 percent of its sales from diesel-powered models. Last year, the German automaker’s U.S. sales rose more than 30 percent. “We expect to beat the Jetta in terms of price, features, range, even horsepower and torque,” said Gary Aultman, chief engineer for Chevrolet small cars. With the diesel Cruze, GM will sell both performance and gas mileage. Diesel engines usually are about 30 percent more efficient than gas motors because they


The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel is displayed Thursday at the Chicago Auto Show. compress the air-fuel mixture at a higher level. They also have more power at lower speeds, allowing faster acceleration.

The Cruze, made in Lordstown, Ohio, has been a good seller for GM. During some months of 2011, it was the top-selling compact in

the U.S. But that was largely because Toyota and Honda factories were hobbled by an earthquake and their dealers ran short of cars.

GM sold almost 238,000 Cruzes last year, a 2.6 percent increase over 2011. UNDER THE HOOD: A new two-liter turbo diesel with 148 horsepower and ample power at all engine speeds. The car initially will be sold only with a six-speed automatic transmission, beefed up for the diesel’s higher power. GM says the diesel will go from zero to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds, which the company says is better than the Jetta with an automatic transmission. GAS MILEAGE: At least 42 mpg on the highway. City and combined mileage testing not finished yet. An eco version of the gasolinepowered Cruze also gets 42 mpg on the highway with a manual transmission, but GM says it doesn’t perform nearly as well as the diesel. “You’re getting a little tiny performance sedan with superb fuel economy,” says spokesman Tom Read. I N S I D E : Chevrolet’s MyLink touch-screen system is standard. Leather-

appointed seats. OUTSIDE: Aerodynamic improvements, 17-inch alloy wheels, low rolling resistance tires, rear spoiler. PRICE: Starts at $25,695 including shipping. It’s a hefty premium over the base gasoline version, which starts at $17,940, and the eco with automatic, which starts at $21,685. Goes on sale in May or June. CHEERS: Gas mileage and diesel engine experience. Even though GM hasn’t had a diesel model in the U.S. since 1986, it made more than 500,000 diesel cars across Europe, Asia, Africa and South America last year. Forty percent of European Cruzes have diesel engines. JEERS: Price. The diesel is about $4,000 more than the gas-engine eco version, and the mileage is comparable. Price is also comparable to Jetta diesel with automatic transmission. Also, diesel Cruze has less trunk space than gas-engine Cruze due to diesel pollution controls.

Advocates: Michigan should address professional licensing obstacles for immigrants Edith Zou Capital News Service

LANSING – From physicians to architects to barbers, immigrants and other people educated or trained abroad must meet Michigan’s licensing requirements to continue their professional and vocational careers in this country. And difficulties in doing so could impede efforts by the Snyder administration to attract skilled immigrants to Michigan. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 6 percent of the state’s population was born abroad. Ryan Bates, director of the Alliance for Immigrants Rights and Reform-Michigan,

said, “The requirements are complicated. It depends on different types of licenses.” According to the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affair (LARA), all applicants for commercial licenses must meet the same requirements. Applicants for health professions licenses must meet all requirements established by professional boards regulated by the department’s Bureau of Health Care Services. “For example, foreigntrained nurses must have their education evaluated for equivalency to an approved nursing educational program in the United States. And the review must be performed by the Commission on Gradu-

ates of Foreign Nursing Schools,” said Jeannie Vogel of LARA’s communication office. “Others are quite the same, depending on different requirements of different boards,” she said. Vogel said she hasn’t heard any complaints about immigrants’ difficulties in obtaining Michigan credentials. Gov. Rick Snyder said that more skilled immigrants will help speed economic recovery. “ We k n o w w e m u s t continue to welcome innovators, entrepreneurs and skilled workers from around the world. They can help our core industries — automotive, agriculture and

tourism — continue to drive Michigan’s comeback, and help our nation remain an economic superpower,” he said. Shakil Khan, president of the Multicultural Council of America, said his nonprofit organization in Lake Orion helps immigrants with their professional training. “We opened a small private college called Dominican International Institute, which offers students English and professional courses. Students can choose the course they need to pass the exams for the certificates and do short-term training for several months to two years,” he said.

“We have a pay-as-youstudy program to help those who can’t afford the high tuition fee, which allows students to pay their fees by month.” Khan said the council also provides career advice. For example, he cited the council’s advice that a 62-year-old physician from Eastern Europe switch to medical case management. That career pays well and requires medical knowledge without the need to retrain for a Michigan medical license. Both Bates and Khan said the government needs to make the licensing process easier. Bates said, “There are still

PhDs driving a taxi cab. Licensing shouldn’t be an obstacle for those people who come to Michigan pursuing their American dream. It can be improved, and there is potential.” And Khan said “Everyone is saying that immigrants have contributed benefits to society but we don’t see a lot of programs to help us grow. “We keep fighting and keep trying to fulfill the requirements. Civil rights are wonderful on paper but they never perform as they say,” he said. “We’ re not trying to change the laws of the country, but we are showing them a different way, and sometimes they listen.”

STATE BUDGET FROM A1 urged the administration take action. “The dropping lake levels and the need for dredging has become a major priority in recent years and I’m happy to see the governor addressing the issue,” Rep. Greg MacMaster, R-Kewadin, said. “As a scuba diver, I’ve personally witnessed the impact receding lake levels have had on our waterways and the need for dredging to maintain our commerce and tourism industries.” MacMaster, a for mer meteorologist, said he can “confidently state that our lake levels won’t see relief for decades.” “Dredging access points and harbors around the state must be done this year to preserve the mission of the Pure Michigan campaign. It will help our state continue to be a national leader in tourism by ensuring the Great Lakes remain open for business in this and future summers,” he added. In move that picked up support from Democrats, Snyder also formally recommended making 320,000 more residents eligible for Medicaid in 2014, a move he said would initially save $200 million a year because people who receive care from state-funded programs would instead be covered with federal money. That was met with skepticism by Republican legislators who worry the federal government will renege on a promise to cover much the cost after 2017. “Whenever you get their money, we lose any control over what we do and what our recipients get,” said Sen. Mike Green, R-Mayville, who questioned taking the dollars as Washington grapples with deficits and debt. To head off those kinds of concerns, Snyder called for setting aside $100 million a year of savings from Medic-

aid expansion so Michigan can pay a portion of the cost once the U.S. government stops covering 100 percent. “The bottom line is better care at a lower cost. This is not about taking money and spending money from Washington. I don’t believe in that,” said Snyder, adding the biggest factor in his Medicaid decision was uninsured patients visiting emergency rooms because they do not have health insurance. “They’re classified as uncompensated care. They’re still real people.” Democrats, who are outnumbered in the Capitol, applauded Snyder for his Medicaid position but faulted his school budget and said his early childhood initiative does not go far enough. “Are we going to try to address the fact that we are in a deficit when it comes to quality education in our state?” said Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Detroit, the top Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee. Public schools, universities and community colleges would get 2 percent more overall funding in the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. The proposal requires universities to hold tuition and fee increases below 4 percent or lose part of their state aid. During the joint appropriations questioning on the proposed plan, several lawmakers had questions about the school aid funding. “It appears from the numbers I saw and the graphs that the schools will not see much of an increase in their school foundation allowance, and the press and the stakeholders are usually looking at the numbers they can use for general operations,” said Sen. Howard Walker, R-Traverse City. But, “I think that has been a misunderstanding for a long time,” Gov. Snyder said. “The real key is what

are the state dollars going to the educational institution and what is arriving to support the kids? The question of retirement costs has not been properly reflected.” Snyder asked lawmakers to double enrollment of 4-year-olds in a preschool program for kids at risk of failing. Over two years, the number of participants in the Great Start Readiness Program would rise from 32,000 to 66,000. K-12 districts that now get the minimum amount of aid would receive $34 more per student this fall, with the minimum grant being raised to $7,000. Midlevel and wealthier districts would not get the extra money but could qualify for additional funding if they meet performance benchmarks (up to $100 per pupil) or “best practices” ($16 per student). Though the focus traditionally has been on per-pupil funding levels, state budget director John Nixon, said that is not the best gauge of spending because of a change in paying for retirement benefits for school employees. A 2012 law limits the portion of districts’ payroll required to go toward the retirement system, so Snyder is budgeting to spend $430 million for excess liabilities — the equivalent of $250 per student. He also called for higher hunting and fishing license fees, $25 million in tax incentives for movie makers — half what is allocated in the current budget — and hiring a net 107 more state troopers and more conservation officers. He proposed putting $75 million more in the rainy day fund, which would total $580 million. It was near empty when Snyder took office.




success,” he told lawmakers who sit on House and Senate budget committees. “Too often when we tend to come out of a recession, it’s easy to go back to old habits.” Most of the increase over the current $48.2 billion budget is in two areas: transportation and Medicaid, the government health insurance program for the poor and disabled. Snyder proposed increasing the 19-cents-per-gallon state g asoline tax and 15-cents-per-gallon diesel tax to the equivalent of 33 cents for both — a more detailed plan than announced in his January State of the State address. After two years, the fuel tax would begin fluctuating depending on fuel consumption and construction. Annual re gistration fees would rise 60 percent for cars and SUVs and 25 percent for big trucks and trailers. The typical family would pay $120 per vehicle more each year in gas taxes and vehicle fees, a tough sell even if people recognize roads are in bad shape. Snyder said Michigan will be stuck with a much larger bill in the future if lawmakers do not act. He cited repair-shop bills associated with driving on pothole-ridden roads that are dangerous for motorists and said spending more on transportation would create jobs. “This is common sense to me,” he said. An important measure for Northern Michigan will be a $21.5 million proposal the governor made for dredging harbors in Michigan, which are facing major issues as Lake Michigan and Huron water levels dip into a record low period. Northern Michigan lawmakers including Re p. Frank Foster, R-Petoskey, and Sen. Tom Casperson have introduced legislation to spend $30 million on emergency dredging. Other rural lawmakers have also

Asteroid will buzz Earth, no need to duck

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A 150-footwide asteroid will come remarkably close to Earth next week, even closer than high-flying communication and weather satellites. It will be the nearest known flyby for an object of this size. But don’t worry. Scientists promise the megarock will be at least 17,100 miles away when it zips past next Friday. “No Earth impact is possible,” Donald Yeomans, manager of NASA’s NearEarth Object program at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., said Thursday. Even the chance of an asteroid-satellite run-in is extremely remote, Yeomans and other scientists noted. A few hundred satellites orbit at 22,300 miles, higher than the asteroid’s path, although operators are being warned about the incoming object for tracking purposes. “No one has raised a red flag, nor will they,” Yeomans told reporters. “I certainly don’t anticipate any problems whatsoever.”

Impossible to see with the naked eye, the asteroid is considered small as these things go. By contrast, the one that took out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago was 6 miles wide. Yet Asteroid 2012 DA14,

as it’s known for its discovery date, still could pack a wallop. If it impacted Earth — which it won’t, scientists were quick to add Thursday — it would release the energy equivalent of 2.4 million tons of TNT

Manhunt for ex-police officer sets region on edge Elliot Spagat Julie Watson Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — The m a s s ive s e a r c h f o r a for mer Los Angeles police of ficer accused of going on a killing spree unnerved tens of thousands of people across Souther n Califor nia, neighboring states and i n t o M e x i c o : Wi t h i n hours, mistaken sightings of the suspect set off a lockdown of a Navy base and led to mistaken shootings by police of innocent people whose vehicles matched a description. Mexican authorities were ready to shoot to kill if they saw Christopher Dor ner cross the border. On the U.S. side, tens of thousands of loc a l , s t at e a n d f e d e r a l authorities scrambled following a flood of calls from people believing they had spotted the man, who was fired from the LAPD in 2008 and vowed “warfare to those in LAPD unifor m” in a rambling online manifesto. Authorities believe he shot to death the daughter of a for mer LAPD captain and her fiance S u n d ay i n a n I r v i n e parking garage, grazed a Los Angeles policeman during a confrontation T h u r s d ay m o r n i n g i n Corona and shot two Riverside police officers in an ambush a short time later, killing one. The Navy shut down its Point Loma base in San Die go after an activeduty service member at about 9:30 a.m. reported seeing someone matching Dorner’s description on base. Military of ficials said Dorner had indeed checked into a hotel on base Tuesday but left the next day. Navy spokesman Cmdr.

Brian Fagan said the 33-year-old former Navy lieutenant left the reserves with an honorable discharg e F riday, and likely used his military ID to get on base. T h e N av y l i f t e d t h e lockdown about midday after dozens of police officers swarmed the base and failed to find him. Signs of his trail sent authorities scrambling throughout the day from state to state and city to city. In Los Angeles, officers mistakenly wounded two women in suburban Torrance who were in a pickup in the predawn darkness Thursday. One wo m a n w a s i n s t a b l e condition with two guns h o t wo u n d s a n d t h e other was being released after being treated. Minutes later, Torrance officers responding to a report of gunshots encountered another dark pickup matching the description of Dor ner’s, said Torrance Sgt. Chris Roosen. A collision occurred and the officers fired on the pickup. The unidentified driver was not hit and police later realized they had made a mistake, Roosen said. “We’re asking our officers to be extraordinarily cautious just as we’re asking the public to be extraordinarily cautious with this guy. He’s already demonstrated he has a propensity for shooting innocent people,” said Andrew Smith, the LAPD commander. Dor ner is wanted in the killings of Monica Quan, and her fiance, Keith Lawrence. T hey were found shot in their car at a parking structure at their condominium Sunday night in Irvine, authorities said. Quan, 28, was an assistant women’s basket-

ball coach at Cal State Fullerton. Lawrence, 27, was a public safety officer at the University of Southern California. There was disbelief at three college campuses, Fullerton, USC, and Concordia University, where the two met when they were both students and basketball players. O n T h u r s d ay m o r n ing, Dorner’s wallet and photo ID and a law enforcement badg e were found on a street near San Diego International Airport. Dor ner was believed to be heavily armed and wearing military-style fatigues and body armor. Mexican authorities closely watched San Diego’s border with Tijuana and were pre pared to shoot him in a confrontation, said Alfredo Arenas, inter national liaison for the Baja California state police. The FBI and U.S. marshals provided constant updates. “We’ re kee ping tabs w i t h t h e m e ve r y f ive minutes to see if he comes to Tijuana,” Arenas said. “If push comes to shove, they advised us to shoot to the head.” Arenas said the Mexican navy was also watching out. Dorner is suspected of tying up an 81-year-old man and trying to steal his boat at the Southwester n Yacht Club in San Diego on Wednesday night. He fled when he couldn’t start the engine. The yacht club is about five miles from where Dor ner’s wallet was found, San Diego police said. On Monday mor ning, authorities found Dor ner’s police equipment in a Dumpster in the San Diego suburb of National City.

Senate gets ready to renew Violence Against Women Act Jim Abrams Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Senators tussled Thursday over whether Indian authorities should be able to prosecute non-Indians in domestic abuse cases, an issue that has delayed passage of legislation to renew the federal government’s main law in the fight against domestic violence. A final vote on reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act is now scheduled for Monday. The 1994 act expired in 2011, but reauthoriza-

tion was blocked last year by differences between the Democratic-led Senate, which is seeking to extend new protections for gays, lesbians, immigrants and Native American women, and the Republicans in the House, who said the Senate bill goes too far. Advocates of the act have been more optimistic this year because Republicans trying to shore up their losses among female voters in the November election say they are eager to pass a bill. The Senate had hoped to pass its bill on Thursday, but a final vote was put

off so that it could debate, and defeat, a substitute by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, that would have altered the provision on tribal courts. Grassley, saying subjecting non-Indians to Indian courts would raise significant constitutional problems, instead proposed that more federal prosecutors and magistrates be placed in Indian country for domestic violence and sexual assault cases. He would also have allowed tribes to petition a federal court for protection orders to exclude an abuser from Indian land.

Mother turns back on daughter in time of need

My mother told me she doesn’t approve of the way I expressed myself angrily to people who Annie’s claimed to Mailbox be friends of my daughter but proceeded to spread ugly lies about her past. In my grief, I confronted these people and protected my daughter as any parent would have. My mother told me to get mental health assistance, and she refuses to speak to me. I sought advice from a psychologist, who said I seem very aware of everyone’s feelings and there is nothing wrong with me. I simply need time to heal. She thinks my mother is acting unreasonably. Not only did I lose my only child, but I also lost my mother when I needed her most. Is there anything I can do to make her under-

Dear Annie: I lost my beautiful daughter to suicide six months ago. A strong and able firefighter, she was also extremely active in her community. Naturally, I leaned on my mother for consolation, but I didn’t find it. Instead, my mother was distant and uninterested in my pain. It was an effort even to get her to attend my daughter’s memorial service. She said it would be hypocritical to go, because she hadn’t spoken to my daughter for years. I can’t recall what hurt my mother so much that she decided never to speak to my daughter again. Now she says she doesn’t want to hear from me until I am feeling better. I am well aware of my mother’s inability to talk about things that cause her pain. However, I don’t believe pushing me out of her life solves anything.

stand how painful this is? — Heartbroken Dear Heartbroken: Our deepest condolences on the loss of your daughter. Your mother sounds incapable of showing sympathy or providing consolation. She may also be feeling guilty for never having reconciled with her granddaughter, believing that there was plenty of time to do so. We cannot make your mother a more compassionate human being. We can only recommend that you get grief counseling and find support through The Compassionate Friends ( at 1-877-969-0010, an organization for parents whose children have died.

17 Petoskey High students honored for perfect attendance Seventeen Petoskey High School students achieved perfect attendance and had no tardies during the first semester of the school year. Of the 989 students enrolled at Petoskey High School, these 17 students represent less than 2 percent of the student body. Research has shown that attendance is related to student success and graduation rates. A recent study by the Consortium on Chicago School Research revealed that almost 90 percent of freshmen who missed less than a week of school per semester went on to graduate, regardless of their eighth-grade standardized test scores. The Petoskey High School administration rewarded these 17 students with $10 gift cards to the Pit Stop, the school store, as part of its Josten’s Renaissance program. The purpose of the Renais-

‘What Can We Learn from Comic Books?’ Monica Cook Sheridan Elementary School


Sheridan Elementary student Ashley Crothers joins Petoskey Public Safety Officer Randy Davis recently as Davis teaches fifth-graders about T.E.A.M. (Teaching, Educating and Mentoring).

Go ‘T.E.A.M.’!

Police officer shares safety tips with Sheridan students Ashley Crothers Sheridan Elementary School

Officer Randy Davis comes to Sheridan Elementary School on Wednesdays to teach fifth graders about T.E.A.M. (Teaching, Educating and Mentoring). So far this year I have learned about gun safety, fire safety, and different kinds of drugs and how they are illegal. He has encouraged us not to use drugs. We also learned how to keep ourselves safe on the Internet by not putting personal things like address, phone number, last names and relatives on any social pages. We talked about why we

have rules and laws. Anywhere without laws would go into chaos. If Officer Davis didn’t come in, I’m sure that most of the fifth graders would not know Ashley what to do on the InCrothers ternet, or how drugs are dangerous, and that you always have to have a plan if there is a fire.

On Jan. 23, a Mind Zap called “What Can We Learn from Comic Books?” took place at North Central Michigan College with Jami Blaauw-Hara. Professor Blaauw-Hara wanted us to learn how we can become better readers through reading comics. A few kindergarten through fifth-graders from Sheridan Elementary went Monica to the college Cook to learn about comic books. They took quizzes and learned about when comic books came out, and which one was the oldest. Everyone got an empty comic strip and wrote in the speech bubbles. Student Vivian Hartley said, “This place is cool and it’s fun!”

A14 LAKE LEVELS FROM A1 part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, precipitation rates across the entire Great Lakes Basin have been about average for the past 10 years. According to data kept since 1900 and updated through 2011, an average of 33 inches of precipitation falls annually across the Great Lakes Basin. Since 2002, only two years have seen less precipitation than that annual average: 2005, when 32 inches of precipitation fell across the basin, and 2012, when 31 inches fell. The basin saw high precipitation years in 2008, when the region saw 38 inches of precipitation, and both 2004 and 2006, which received 36 inches apiece. The problem comes when evaporation outpaces precipitation, regardless of the rate of precipitation, said Gronewold. He points to a new program the research laboratory has launched, called the Great Lakes Hydro-Climate Dashboard. It plots water level observations, historical water levels, monthly level forecasts and data about the climate. Users can, for example, click up how much monthly precipitation has fallen over lakes Michigan and Huron and compare it to how much water has evaporated from the lake. The last plot point of data on the dashboard was for Dec. 2011. During that month, 4 inches of water evaporated from lakes Michigan and Huron. Only 1.5 inches of precipitation fell. “The precipitation could be going up all you want, but if evaporation is going up at a higher rate, you’re going to lose water,” said Gronewold. “Both have to be part of the story.” According to the release from the Army Corps of Engineers announcing the new record low, that’s what happened to create current lake conditions. Because of lower-thanaverage snowfall during the winter of 2011-2012, the heat wave in March and following hot, dry summer, the seasonal rise of Lake Michigan-Huron was just 4 inches compared to the typical 12-inch rise. And while the region has been receiving snowfall so f ar this winter, the snow must not be lake-effect in or-

der for the precipitation to raise lake levels. “Lake effect is really a net loss to the Great Lakes as far as water levels go,” said Kompoltowicz. “Lake effect is a result of evaporation from the lake surface, and there’s no guarantee that it will make it back to the lake it came from.” The low lake levels have prompted the Army corps to reconsider placing obstructions in the St. Clair River that would slow the outflow of water from lakes Michigan and Huron. Currently, there are two diversions that let water out from the Great Lakes system, said Kompoltowicz. Set by the Supreme Court, Lakes Michigan and Huron lose 3,200 cubic feet per second at the Chicago diversion — about 1 percent of the total outflow of the system. That’s balanced by diversions that flow into Lake Superior at Ogoki and Long Lac from Canada. Together, those diversions contribute an average of 5,600 cubic feet per second to the system. But at the St. Clair River, the system loses, on average, 157,000 cubic feet per second. And that depends on the levels of the Great Lakes: the higher the lakes, the higher the outflow, said Gronewold. Too, back in the 1960s, the Army corps dredged the river, accounting for a one-time net loss from lakes Michigan and Huron of 12-16 inches. Since then, additional erosion at the river has caused another 4-inch loss in lake levels, according to a study completed by the Inter national Joint Commission. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, the Army corps created an authorization to compensate for the dredging. E s s e n t i a l l y, s t r u c t u r e s would be placed in the St. Clair River to slow the outflow of water, potentially raising water levels — if precipitation over the region increases and evaporation decreases. “We believe we still have that authorization,” said Kompoltowicz. “If that is in fact true, then we have to take a look at what budget options are available ... I can’t even begin to speculate if that will happen. Internally, we’re verifying that we still have the authorization.”

Three bills coming down the dredging pipeline Morgan Sherburne (231) 439-9394 -

Since the end of January, three bills have been introduced to garner funding for the dredging of Lake Michigan harbors. The first bill, House Bill 4106, would allow funds to be diverted from the Natural Resources Trust Fund and used for dredging in Michigan lakes and harbors. Representatives introduced the bill just as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was preparing to release the fact that the levels of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron fell below the lowest recorded level ever, since data started to be collected in 1918. Lakes Michigan and Huron — considered one lake connected at the Straits of Mackinac — set their previous record in March 1964, when they stood at a level of 576.05 feet. Their average January measurement was at 576.02 feet, just a third of an inch below the previous record, but below it nonetheless. “I think it’s important, having met with people along Crooked River and Crooked Lake and in Northern Michigan, (to introduce this bill),” said state Rep. Frank Foster. “As the governor is getting ready to talk about roads, we want him to realize infrastruc-

ture is more than that. Waterways are an important part of transportation and recreation in Northern Michigan. ... Some of these rivers haven’t been dredged in decades.” Foster, R-Petoskey, introduced a second bill, House Bill 4197, along with Rep. Bruce Rendon, R-Lake City, which calls for $30 million to be pulled from a “rainy day fund,” known officially as the Budget Stabilization Fund. Sen. Tom Casperson, REscanaba, introduced a third bill, the same day as Foster’s, that has requests identical to Foster’s bill. The $30 million would be immediately available for applications from municipalities requesting funds to dredge harbors or rivers, said Foster. In this way, this bill is different from House Bill 4106 — the bill that would pull money from the Natural Resources Trust Fund. “We believe (4106) would take a constitutional change, and it would go on the ballot,” said Foster. “A vote would go to the people, and we might not see change for a year. These communities need to have these resources now.” Both Foster’s and Casperson’s bills have been referred to the Committee on Appropriations.

DNR says 6 sturgeon landed during Black Lake hunt LANSING (AP) — The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the quota of six sturgeon were landed in less than three days during the annual hunt for the prehistoric fish in Cheboygan County’s Black Lake. The harvest ended around midday Monday. Spearing and hook-and-line fishing were permitted as 268 registered anglers pursued the rare species. The largest sturgeon landed

was a female that weighed 67 pounds and was 66 inches long. The smallest was a male that weighed 11 pounds and was 39 inches in length. Fisheries biologist Tim Cwalinski says ice conditions were good, with little snow present. The DNR, Michigan State University and the Black Lake chapter of a group called Sturgeon for Tomorrow are working to boost the lake’s sturgeon population.

SERVICE CLUBS FROM A1 ate memberships allow people to come to some meetings and work on service projects to see if they want to become full members. Spousal membership allows a married couple to join as a couple and share the meeting attendance. In addition to adding membership category flexibility, the Rotary Club of Petoskey, which meets at noon over lunch, has tried to lower costs by giving a choice of three different meal options — a salad, a light lunch, or the full meal. Rotary International is also re-thinking its weekly meeting attendance requirement to retain active membership. According to Millar, it is looking at dropping the attendance requirement, so if a person wants to be involved in service projects, but can’t make lunch every week, the person can be a member. “What’s more important, that one shows up every week for a meeting, or that they show up on the weekend to help build that playground?” Millar mused. Major service clubs such as Rotary and Kiwanis are varying meeting times. In Petoskey, there is a morning Rotary club with a breakfast meeting, the original noon club, and a newly-organized after-work club that meets at 5:30 p.m. for a quick meeting, so people who don’t want to stay can get home for dinner. Rotary also offers online meetings and e-clubs. Kiwanis offers both breakfast and lunch clubs. Both groups are focusing on membership retention by making sure their members feel valued and heard in the club and personalizing membership experience. Rita Moore, president of the Kiwanis Club of Petoskey, is sure to recognize the service of a different Kiwanian at every meeting. Doug Caldwell, vicepresident and membership chairman of the Rotary Club of Petoskey makes sure someone from his membership committee personally contacts a Rotarian who hasn’t been heard from in a couple of weeks. “When Kiwanis looked at membership demographics, we found that we were lightest in 40 to 50-year-olds. That makes sense to me, because at this time people are most involved in raising children and all their activities. People are involved in life,” Moore said. Kiwanis sponsors three active youth service clubs, Builder’s club at Petoskey Middle School, K Club at Petoskey High School and starting this month the Circle K club at North Central Michigan College with the intent of building a service mentality in area youth. “There are no silver bullets,” Caldwell said. “All service clubs and nonprofits are looking at membership and volunteer is-

Volunteers needed, too Service clubs aren’t the only ones looking for volunteer involvement. Hugh Conklin, Boyne City Main Street program manager said that the communities have expectations for a lot of events to bring people to town and help local businesses. These events require a lot of work, planning and organization. “In Boyne City, we have a core group of leaders who have put these events together. We need to be sure that there are people ready to take the baton, when some of these leaders step down,” Conklin said. “People belong to clubs, because they are friends. They are social. The service clubs in Boyne City each have their own missions,” Conklin said. But there is also room for people who want to volunteer to plan, organize and work one specific event for which they have a passion. For example, a few years ago, the SOBO (South Boyne) Arts Festival was started by a group with that interest. Currently, the Mushroom Festival leadership wants to turn over the reins, to new leadership. Over the years, this event has grown to be a signature Boyne City event. “We have to make sure as these transitions happen, that we have structure, support and accountability in place,” Conklin said. Boyne City is hosting a meeting at City Hall at 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 11, open to all that will discuss several volunteer opportunities and brainstorm the best ways to proceed. Daniel Dewindt, Harbor Springs Area Chamber of Commerce executive, said that he faces the same challenges. “We feel that pain ourselves,” Dewindt said, referring to the continuous search for new volunteers to help with events. “We are blessed with good committee chairs that are willing to serve year after year,” DeWindt said. To encourage new people to get involved, DeWindt and his

committees ask people to do a “one-serve.” This means that those working on an event or in a club ask friends and or neighbors to come out and volunteer for one thing, like setting up tables, manning a check-in or selling tickets. The hope is that once people have fun being involved in an activity, some will want to become more involved. In addition, DeWindt works with the Friendship Center to get volunteers to do mass mailings, for example. Carlin Smith, president of the Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce, pointed out the vital role that Leadership Little Traverse has had in cultivating community leaders and volunteers. Leadership Little Traverse is a series of classes for developing community leaders. Over the past 14 years, it has developed an alumni base of 180 people. Though the program targets developing civic leadership so people become board members, politicians and community leaders, it has been a great bridge to service clubs,” Smith said. Leadership Charlevoix County, modeled after Leadership Little Traverse, is in its second year developing leaders for Charlevoix County. Erin Bemis, president of the Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce, said that in a beautiful retirement area, aging memberships in service clubs is bound to be an issue. However, Charlevoix has been able to diversify membership both on service committees for events and in local service clubs. “We have a young chamber staff, and our board has several people in their 30s on it,” she said. “Here, the younger set are stepping into business ownership, either in multi-generational businesses or as new business owners.” Moore sums up people and service in this way, “When people have time in their lives, they should seize it and give back to the community.” Those who wish to become more involved in their communities by volunteering, serving on a committee, or joining a service club, may start by contacting their local chamber of commerce. All area chambers of commerce have lists of service clubs and volunteer opportunities.

Talking ‘bout my generation Millennials, Gen X serve on their own terms; Jaycees take on Fourth of July celebration Jamie Baumann (231) 439-9350 -


he younger generations of residents are getting involved in the community, but maybe not in the traditional ways. “Anyone who believes that young people don’t want to serve sells them short. Young people care, but their involvement needs to be on their own terms as they juggle family, jobs, and even caring for aging parents,” said Jane Millar, immediate past rotary district governor for the Northern Michigan region. Kerri Finlayson, professor of sociology and anthropology at North Central Michigan College would agree that young people want to be involved but maybe more on their own time, tying their volunteering/civic engagement to an activity. Research shows that young people are more likely to be involved with a leisure activity, running, biking, or triathalons for a cause. They are more likely to get involved serving with United Way or a food pantry. There is more of an individualistic trend to civic engagement among Generation X (born between 1960 and 1980), and Millennials (born between 1981 and 2000), in terms of not joining a set group that meets at noon every week but they are still involved just a little

more on their own terms. Finlayson said that Millennials are interested in serving their community but don’t really know exactly what the traditional service clubs do. Finlayson, 39, found her volunteer niche in Petoskey’s new Jaycees club. “I’ve personally been asked to join service clubs. My dad keeps trying to get me to join Rotary, but I just feel more comfortable in a group of my peers,” she said. The Jaycees, a service club for young adults, started last March, according to Erin VerBerkmoes, vice president, who helped with the club’s organization. “It’s a great outlet for younger professionals,” she said. “A lot of the young people don’t feel comfortable in an older group,” VerBerkmoes said. “The Jaycees offered for me, a breath of fresh air because everyone is between 21 and 40 and we focus on career, service and networking.” Jaycee President Jessica McGeorge said, “Really the attraction to the Jaycees is that it’s our peers. We want to get involved and make our community a better place. For those who are trying to pass the torch for the Fourth of July celebration, we’re the torch catchers.” Traditionally, the Petoskey

Jaycees were the club that sponsored the Fourth of July celebration activities, but the club ended a decade ago. After they disbanded, a citizens committee “Stars and Stripes” took over, but they have been looking for help and growing weary. “We were looking for a signature project, so we’re excited about taking on the Fourth of July celebration,” VerBerkmoes said. McGeorge is also excited about taking on this huge project for the new club. “We have a different learning curve on how to put on events. Having a group like Jaycees of our peers takes the fear out of volunteering,” she said. Similarly in Boyne City, a new group of under age 40 business people has started under the umbrella of the Boyne Area Chamber of Commerce. Local chiropractor Ryan Moskal is the leader of the young professionals group that meets periodically for a drink and to discuss issues relevant to them. Millenials forming their own organizations and serving on their own terms generates enthusiasm for service. McGeorge pointed out that the Jaycees is really a good farm team for other service clubs, as the members automatically “age out” of the group and will be looking for new service opportunities.

Conservation district accepting orders for trees and shrubs through April 5 The Emmet Conservation District is offering a selection of trees and shrubs at its 2013 Spring Tree Seedling and Transplant sale. Most of the species offered are native to the area. In addition to the conifers and hardwoods, a variety of shrubs are also available. Order deadline is Friday, April 5, with pick up at the Emmet County Fairgrounds 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday, April 26, and 8-11 a.m. Saturday, April 27. Conifers for sale include red pine, white pine, blue spruce, white spruce, Norway spruce and northern white cedar. Deciduous trees include red oak, white oak, red maple, sugar maple and American plum. This year, a limited number of Honey Crisp apple trees will also be for sale. Apple trees will be arriving for pick up about 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

What trees should you plant? Native trees planted in an appropriate site are usually the best option. Trees planted on unsuitable sites suffer high mortality, poor growth and are more susceptible to disease and pests. To help ensure a successful planting, consider and evaluate the soil composition before trees are purchased and planted. Tree growth is most rapid where soil drainage is good and competing grasses, shrubs and weeds are controlled. Also, look and see what is already successfully growing in the proposed planting site. Remember apple trees need two varieties for optimum pollination. A crabapple tree can serve as your second variety or even a nearby neighbor’s apple or crabapple tree. Conifers, which include pines, and spruce are more commonly planted on drier, coarser textured and less fertile soils. The pines are the most extensively planted reforestation tree in Michigan and may tolerate more dryness than spruces. Red pines are a great investment as they are highly sought by lumber companies. Hardwoods, or deciduous trees, are usually better suited to loamy and clay/ loam soil types where soil moisture and fertility are generally higher. Large plantings of hardwoods usually require more grass and weed control and more rodent protection when young with various types

Still Petoskey’s current male letterman record holder, Compton was named All-State as quarterback for Petoskey in Luckhardt 1951 and guided the Northmen to an undefeated record in 1951 at 9-0. Also in Compton’s senior season, he helped the Northmen to a record team win, 88-0, over Rogers City while his team received the Best Team award from the Grand Rapids Herald. In track, Compton ran the 100

Compton was a one-time school record holder in the high jump, and in his senior season in basketball helped Petoskey to a regional championship. After college, Compton joined the U.S. Army in 1955 and was head football coach and quarterback for the Army Team at Clark AFB, a league consisting of five Air Force teams and one Army team.

Felix Hernandez, Mariners working on $175 million deal

SEATTLE — Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners are working on a $175 million, seven-year contract that would make him the highest-paid pitcher in baseball, according to a person with knowledge of the deal’s details. The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been completed. USA Today first reported the deal. Seattle would add $134.5 million of guaranteed money over five years to the contract of the 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner, whose current agreement calls for him to receive $40.5 million over the next two seasons. Hernandez’s total dollars would top CC Sabathia’s original $161 million, seven-year contract with the New York Yankees and his $25 million average would surpass Zack Greinke’s $24.5 million under his new contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Northmen get past T.C. West, win 12th straight TRAVERSE CITY — The Petoskey High School girls’ basketball team continued to take another step at a Big North Conference title Thursday. Once again, defense did the trick. The Northmen won their 12th straight game Thursday as they topped Traverse City West, 3616, to improve to 15-2 overall, 9-1 league. Petoskey — who also held Cheboygan to just 16 points in a nonleague win Tuesday after beating T.C. Central, 65-20, last Friday — is allowing opponents to an average of just 29 points against in the 12-game winning streak. On Thursday, senior guard/forward Ke l s e y A n c e f i n ished with a gamehigh 12 points, six rebounds and three steals, while senior center Megan Tompk i n s a d d e d e i g h t Ance points and eight rebounds and senior guard Alyssa VanWerden had seven points and five rebounds. Petoskey, who along with Cadillac has just one league loss, withjust two Big North Conference games remaining in West Branch Ogemaw Heights and Alpena. Both those contests are at home against teams the Northmen have already beaten on the road. “We just looked at this game as one of three league games we have left and it was a tough road game,” Petoskey coach Adam Dobrowolski said. “West really tried to grind the game out and slow the tempo. For awhile there they were able to stay in the game.” A low-scoring first half saw the Northmen take a 13-5 halftime advantage as Ance scored seven of her 12 points in the opening 16 minutes, while defensively Petoskey limited the Titans, 6-10, 6-3, to just a Lauren Ellison baseline jumper and three free throws.

Northmen fall in district final The Gaylord High School wrestling team captured the Division II team district title Thurdsay at the Petoskey High School gym. After opening with a win over West Branch Ogemaw Heights, the Blue Devils defeated host Petoskey, 50-25, in the district final. With the win, Gaylord — which has won five consectuive team district titles — advances to re-

gional competition on Wednesday, Feb. 13, in Mount Pleasant. The win for Gaylord over Petoskey was their second on the season, as they also topped the Northmen, 54-13 on Jan. 16. “We did better than the first dual, but we still lost,” Petoskey coach Nate Gross said. “We only won three matches the first time and we gave up more pins this time, but that is OK. Every

kid was told to wrestle to win. They did that and in taking some chances, we gave up some pins. “At this part of the season, it is win or go home.” For the Northmen, winning matches was James Gazarato, Jordan Haggerty, Trevor Giallombardo, Mike Kibbe and Nick Strobel. See WRESTLING on PAGE B2


Harbor Light tops Alanson; Loggers win ALANSON — Annie Fila scored a career high 32 points for the Harbor Light Christian girls’ basketball team as the Swordsmen pulled in a Northern Lakes Conference win over Alanson, 4934, Thursday. Shelby Donovan finished with 11 points for Harbor Light, who improved to 5-9 overall, 4-5 league, while Emily Lechowicz added 10 rebounds.

Alanson got off to an early lead on the Swordsmen, closing the first quarter with an 11-5 lead. The Vikings would also head to the half with a one point lead, up 19-18. “We just had a poor shooting night to start,” said Harbor Light coach Eric Huffman. “We started cold on both ends of the floor.” The Swordsmen came out fired up in the third quarter, thanks to

Fila’s strong night. The junior guard would go on to score 17 points in the third, making it a 39-23 game, now in favor of Harbor Light. “They got rid of the first half in their minds,” Huffman said. “They understood what was going wrong.” As for Fila, Huffman credited See PREPS on PAGE B2

AUSTIN, Texas — A Dallas promotions company sued Lance Armstrong, demanding he repay $12 million in bonuses and fees it paid him for winning the Tour de France. SCA Promotions had tried in a 2005 legal dispute over the bonuses to prove Armstrong cheated to win before it ultimately settled and paid him. Armstrong recently acknowledged using performance-enhancing drugs after the U.S. AntiDoping Agency in 2012 detailed a sophisticated doping program by his Armstrong’s teams. Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France victories and given a lifetime ban from sports. Now, the company contends in its lawsuit, Armstrong and agent Bill Stapleton lied and conspired to cheat SCA out of millions.

NFL reinstates Gregg Williams

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Gregg Williams thanked NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for reinstating him and he also apologized while taking “full responsibility” for his role in the New Orleans Saints’ bounty scandal. The NFL reinstated Williams on Thursday morning, and the Tennessee Titans hired him as a senior defensive assistant. The league issued a statement saying that Goodell cited several reasons for reinstating Williams, including Williams accepting responsibility for his role in the bounty program, his commitment to never be involved in any pay for performance system and pledging to teach safe play and respect for the rules. Williams, suspended indefinitely last March, is the last person involved in the scandal to be reinstated by league.

WOLVERINE — Brooke Bailey and Courtney Whittaker each scored eight points for the Wolverine girls’ basketball team as they dropped their Northern Lakes Conference meeting with Boyne Falls Thursday. The Wildcats fell to 4-10 overall, 3-7 league, but played the league-leading Loggers tough throughout the night, something that impressed head coach Gary Matelski. “We played even with them for 28 minutes,” Matelski said. “That’s a good team we played, I give them credit. I’m extremely happy with their performance. They’re beating teams by 40 points, we’re winning by three or four.” At the end of the first, the Loggers held a slim 8-6 lead, while extending their lead at the half to 29-12. The Vikings hung tough in the third, making it a 39-22 game after the third quarter of play. Eventually, the Loggers would close with the win in hand. For Boyne Falls, 12-2, 8-1, Emily Matelski led the way with 15 points.

The win makes the Comets run at a league title one step closer as the season nears an end, something coach Adam Stefanski worried about as the season began mostly in part to last season’s high success. “I was a little worried to begin the season, but if anything they’ve stepped up their focus,” Stefanski said. “They’re just a very motivated group.” After opening the game on a 19-0 run, the Comets led 21-4

Kelly Lewis scored seven points for the Hornets, while Breah Carter brought in six steals. The Hor nets, who have struggled with tur nover problems throughout the season, tallied in a seasonhigh 43 turnovers. “ Yo u c a n ’ t g e t aw a y with that against Onaway.

“There were times where we were settling for shots instead of being a little more patient on offense,” Dobrowolski said. “We were playing defense for 30 seconds to a minute at a time and we were taking shots in 10 to 20 seconds and not getting looks we were looking for. “In the second half, we were much more patient, we understood we had to control the tempo and play at our pace.” The Northmen were held scoreless for the first five minutes of the second half before a Hannah Scholten 3-pointer ignited a Northmen run which saw them score 23 points in the game’s final 11 minutes. “West opened the second half and tightened the game

to a possession or two, but Hannah Scholten hit a big 3-pointer for us to get our momentum going,” Dobrowolski said. “We just continued that momentum, we got some steals and some hands on balls on defense and we got out and ran some.” Tompkins scored all eight of her points in the fourth quarter as the Northmen expanded upon their 25-11 third quarter lead. “Megan had three fouls, Kelsey had three fouls, Kati Lewis had three fouls and Amanda Stinger had three fouls,” Dobrowolski said. “But when we were able to put both Megan and Kelsey back on the floor together in the second half we did some good things.” Dobrowolski also lauded

the efforts of VanWerden and Fraser down the stretch with the Northmen battling foul trouble. “They played big minutes for us when we had four different players with three fouls,” Dobrowolski said. “They had to stay on the floor and they did a terrific job in that capacity. Jayme Larson also did a lot of little things defensively and rebounding and did a good job of taking care of the basketball.” The Northmen play host to Ogemaw Heights in a league contest on Friday, Feb. 15. “We’ve got six returning letter winners on this team and at one point last year we won 13 of 14 games,” Dobrowolski said. “One thing we reminded the girls of

was how much we improved from the beginning of February to the end of February last year. “I think they have a good idea of how much better they can even get if they keep a level head and continue to work hard in practice. “Defensively, we’re proving we can limit teams, but offensively we can still do some work and continue to get better and get better looks at the basket.” The Northmen shot 16-of38 (42 percent) from the floor, while West was just 4-of-30 (13 percent) including a 1-for17 clip in the first half.

The NHL lockout of 2012-13 is history, but if the previous lockout of 2004-05 is any indication, the impact on the players will be at least as devastating as it was on fans and businesses. Get this: more than 240 players who took the ice during the 2003-04 season never skated another shift in the NHL after the next season lockout – almost one-third of all the players in the league. One factor that might soften the blow is that this time around an entire season wasn’t lost, as was the case with the 2004-05 lockout by the owners.




No surprise to college basketball fans that early in the 2012-13 season, Duke once again assumed the top spot in the national rankings. It became official in mid-December and lasted at least into early 2013. Incredibly, at that point in Mike Krzyzewski’s 33rd year as coach, the Blue Devils had played only 141 games as an unranked team, against more than 209 and counting as the No. 1 team – the only men’s coach ever with that many more games as the topranked team in the nation than as a team not ranked at all.

The Dallas Mavericks have long been known as one of the NBA’s best shooting teams when it comes to three-pointers. Here’s just one piece of evidence. In December of 2012, the Mavericks finally failed to connect on a three-point shot in 13 attempts against the Toronto Raptors. That ended their streak of sinking at least one three-pointer at an amazing 1,108 consecutive games, longest in league history. Ironically, Toronto was second with 986 straight games.

Bumpjumping, skating, snow-filled fun set for Petoskey’s Winter Carnival Mallory VanHorn (231) 439-9399 -


Bumpjumping is the unique winter activity held annually at Petoskey’s Winter Carnival.


inter Carnival is rolling into town on Saturday, Feb. 16. Petoskey’s Winter Sports Park will host a wide array of outdoor activities and competitions that celebrate everything the season has to offer. Unlike last year’s event, which was postponed by a week because of uncooperative weather, the 2013 Winter Carnival is on track to take advantage of the snow and ice. Thus far, “this winter’s weather is looking good … Ice rinks and hills are fully operational at this point,” said parks and recreation programmer Ed Smith. Winter Carnival begins with a bumpjumping competition at noon. Bumpjumping is a downhill race that requires competitors to build and ride a single-ski, single-seat vehi-

cle. Anywhere from 25-40 people will participate in the bumpjumping event; registration begins at 10:30 a.m. As far as organizers know, it is the only bumpjumping competition in the entire country. “It is unique to Northwest Michigan, introduced at the Winter Carnival here in 1932,” said Smith. The Northern Michigan Cancer Crusaders also fire up their cookout at noon, featuring hot dogs, chili and crafts. All proceeds benefit the foundation. A speedskating demonstration by the Petoskey Speedskating Club takes place at 1 p.m., along with a youth hockey game featuring the Petoskey Squirts. At 3 p.m., the puck drops for a Petoskey Mini-Mites hockey game. The youth sledding competition for ages 12 and under also begins; it typically averages about 50 contestants.

After the hockey games, the Petoskey Figure Skating Club performs for audiences at 6 p.m. Winter Carnival concludes with the Cardboard Challenge XIX, a cardboard sled race judged on both speed and creativity. Racers must fashion a sled out of nothing but cardboard, paint and duct tape. This final event starts at 7 p.m. and has featured up to 50 custom-built sleds. Registration begins at 6 p.m. “We will be handing out some awesome prizes to competitors all day,” said Smith. These prizes are donated by sponsors of Winter Carnival, including area restaurants, retailers, organizations and businesses. “It is definitely good family fun and worth checking out.” Petoskey’s Winter Sports Park is located at 1100 Winter Park Lane.

NEW YORK (AP) — David Alan Grier would obviously love to win a Grammy when the awards are handed out this weekend. It’s a small part of his master plan. If he wins in the best musical theater album category, it would be the actor’s initial step in his quest for an EGOT — winning the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. “This is the first brick in the EGOT castle. One down, if we win,” Grier joked recently by phone from his home in Los An-

The fried perch fish basket at Mim’s Mediterranean includes fries and sweet-and-sour coleslaw.

“The tradition of the fish fry transcends generations. It brings people together. And it’s a great comfort food.” Brett Brinkel, general manager Mim’s Mediterranean “is keeping your fryers clean and the oil new.” “I think it’s the batter,” said Scott Luepnitz, owner of the Alanson Depot. “The way we do it, it coats it and it seals it so that flavor doesn’t get out into the oil.” They also fry their fish separately from other food. Meanwhile, at the Moose Jaw, Kruzel said, “I really do think the batter is our advantage.” Sharing a platter of fried fish is more than just a dinner. “The tradition of the

another meatless Friday night he Lenten season is a time of reflection, sacrifice and selfrestraint. It also boosts the Friday sales of crispy, goldenbrown fried fish. Abstaining from meat on Fridays during Lent is a predominantly Catholic practice; it’s popular in Northern Michigan. However, followers are allowed to consume fish and seafood — making the Friday fish fry an ever-popular dinner choice. “We get quite a big upswing in our fish fry sales during Lent,” said Kevin Kruzel, owner of Moose Jaw Junction in Pellston. He credits the historically Polish-Catholic local community for its popularity. Brett Brinkel, general manager of Mim’s Mediterranean Grill in Petoskey, also notices a substantial increase in their fish dinners during Lent. “We sell more fish on Friday than anything else,” Brinkel said. As a member of St. Francis Xavier parish, “a lot of our customers are part of our church family ... We have a lot of the same customers every week.” The secret ingredients to a great fish fry? A good batter, quality fish and a clean fryer. Brinkel said that Mim’s relies on a high quality fish. “In my opinion, freshwater yellow perch is clearly the best fish to fry.” The trick, he said,
