‘Welcome to our kitchen’ Inspired by her mother, 11-year-old Kora Hiddema serves up sweet community spirit with Pentwater Pies by David L. Barber PTW Writer

Just in case her sparkling eyes and slightly-drawn smile didn’t say all that needed to be said, the young pie baker turned and pointed toward her mother, who was standing behind her. No words were spoken. None had to be. “So, Kora, who inspires you the most?” And just that quick – some might say with the flash of a smile, though it was a did-she, or didn’t-she Mona Lisa smile – 11-year-old Kora Hiddema turned and pointed to her mother, Mary. Not that she needs to, but Mary On the cover: Mary Hiddema and her 11-year-old daughter, Kora, were only too happy to enjoys standing over her daughter’s show off two pies the youngster recently baked in the kitchen of their rural Pentwater home. shoulders to watch – and give guidThis page: When asked who inspires her the most, all young Kora, above, had to do was to ance, when needed – as Kora goes turn, smile and point at her mother, Mary.

We talk, a lot.” Early on, Kora wanted to bake enough “She really takes her time to make her pies that she could buy materials to pies,” said her mother. “She’s careful, build a loft bed in her bedroom. But, she’s thorough. She doesn’t make too once things took off, she also wanted many mistakes – not any more.” to bake pies that would raise money The latter statement caused Kora to for various local non-profits and chari- laugh, out loud.

Cheshire Cat grin. “Mom, what did we call that first blueberry pie I made?” Kora asked as her face turned slightly red. “Oh yeah, I remember that,” said her mom, “That was quite a fiasco. Didn’t we call that our ‘blueberry blowout?” Again, Kora laughed. “Yep!” And so for the next several minutes, as she went about preparing the ingredients to bake an apple pie, Kora talked about all those things she enjoys doing. Spoiler alert: she’s quite an energetic 11-year-old youngster. “I like doing crafts,” said Kora. “I like playing with my dog, Dutch, and riding my horse, Maddie, who likes licorice – red licorice.” Both Mary and Kora laughed how “thankful” they were that Maddie prefers “the generic licorice, not the name brand.” “That saves us a lot, right there,” said Mary. As she sifted and stirred the ingredients, and pinched and pulled at the crust, Kora kept pace with the step-bystep process it takes to prepare, and bake a pie. “Mom, for 30 seconds?” she asked as she put a stick of butter in the microwave. “Yes ma’am,” her mother responded. And so goes the communication between a mom and her daughter when the younger one is standing at the kitchen counter – laughs and giggles, and reminiscing about this and that is interrupted only now and then by an exchange of how-tos, and when and why. They joked that for all the pies Kora can bake – apple, pumpkin, blueberry and more, and some with a sugarcookie topping that is Kora’s specialty – her personal favorite dessert is a “frozen banana covered with chocolate and peanuts.” They talked of the time Kora was baking pies at such a pace that the family

was running out of refrigerator space in which to store them. “So my brother bought me a small refrigerator for Christmas,” said Kora. “That was really thoughtful. I liked that.” They talked about what her mom’s “official job” is when Kora is at her pie-baking station. “Oh, that’s easy,” said Mary. “I’m the taste-tester.” Kora laughed, and said, “oh, you do more than that.” “Well, I’m the delivery person, too,” said Mary. “And I drive her around, to wherever she has to be.” As Kora finished putting together her apple pie before putting it into the oven, her mother continued to stand

close by, like mothers do. And just over her left shoulder a heart-shaped sign read: “Welcome to my kitchen, open 24 hours.” “It can be a lot of work, but it can be a lot of fun, too – if you make it that way,” said Mary. “We enjoy being in here (in the kitchen), together.” The apple pie put together and placed in the oven, Kora and her mother walked out into the family’s back yard where Kora gave Dutch – a chocolate lab, hence the name “Dutch” chocolate – a friendly hug. She then took the reins to lead her appaloosa mare, Maddie, on a walk. “She shows Maddie at a few shows,” said Mary. “She’s just now getting into that and she seems to be enjoying it.”

July 29-Aug. 5, 2021 - PTW - 7


Hug Dutch – check! Walk Maddie – check! There was one more thing to do before Kora stepped back into the kitchen to check on how her apple pie was doing. Grabbing two rings on the swing set she swung back and forth, and then turned circles – literally, she turned circles, turned upside down and every which way, all the while laughing. Closing in on a decade of teaching preschool children – in the Hart school system for several years before taking on those responsibilities in Pentwater – Mary has been, and continues to be, a person who cares deeply about the well-being of her friends, neighbors and others. She has been an active member of the Pentwater Junior Women’s Club for many years, has worked vigorously with the Pentwater Mobile Food Truck, and more. And of course, being the mother of two keeps her busy, too. Her son, Brendan, is active in scouting, sports and so much more, and, you’ve read what Kora is interested in – a long list of things that you can now add baking vegetable quiche and cake pops, to. All of which explains why, when asked “who inspires you,” Kora didn’t have to say anything, at all.

At top, Kora Hiddema carefully does a lastminute check of the recipe for her apple pie. Above, Kora’s mother, Mary Hiddema, checks on her daughter’s pie. At right, Kora leads her horse, Maddie. Opposite page: Kora pays close attention when mixing ingredients. 8 - PTW - July 29-Aug. 5, 2021

Planted in Pentwater Why doesn’t my hydrangea bloom? by Mary Stiphany

PTW Contributor

I brought home my first hydrangea, full of luscious blooms in shades of purple, pink and blue. As I carefully placed it into the rich soil, I whispered to this Endless Summer variety, “You’re on probation, bloom like you’re supposed to or you’re outta here.” It bloomed that first summer, and I was cautiously optimistic, murmuring lovingly, “You look like a keeper.” The hydrangea survived the winter winds and hungry deer here in Pentwater. In early April, I trimmed back the dead blossoms and dead looking branches. Healthy leaves appeared by July, but I still had no flowers; August was the same. I began sending threatening looks to the very green leafed bush, trying intimidation as a last resort; reminding it that summer was almost over and its remaining time in my landscape was looking grim. Instead of tossing out the plant, I did some research and corrected my mistake. What went wrong? In my case, the pruning was too aggressive as the Endless Summer variety grows on old wood. (Lack of enough sun is another reason for a hydrangea to be “bloomless.”) Why does old wood matter? Hydrangeas grow on old or new wood and the pruning for each is radically different. Don’t leave your garden center without understanding which type of wood your new plant grows on.

Big Leaf Hydrangea - Endless Summer buds are formed for next year’s blooms during the current growing season. Pruning in the fall or early spring will sadly remove those buds, preventing the growth of colorful blossoms for the next year. Step away from your pruners except to remove only dead blossoms and dead stems in the fall or early spring. Wait to remove dead canes at ground level in early July or late June after flowering has begun, as although those canes may look dead in early April, they could produce blossoms in June. NEW WOOD Hydrangeas that grow on new wood produce flower buds on young growth. Prune in the fall or early spring to the ground level or 1/3 of the plant.

CATEGORIES OF HYDRANGEAS • Big Leaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea Macrophylla) varieties include mophead and lace cap and grow on old wood.

ture. An example of the mophead category is Endless Summer, while a lace cap type example is Blue Billow.

• Climbing Hydrangeas (Hydrangea Petiolaris) bloom on old wood. It needs partial sun, is slow growing, and needs a support to climb on. This author has never seen one in the Pentwater area but would love it if someone who has experience in this plant to share his or her knowledge with me at mcstiphany@yahoo.com

• Panicle Hydrangeas (Hydrangea Paniculata) grow on new wood, and can be heavily pruned in the fall or early spring. Examples of this variety include Bobo, Limelight and Little Quick Fire. Panicle Hydrangeas are the most sun-tolerant hydrangeas; needing five to six hours of sunlight. Although drought tolerant, it still needs adequate moisture. • Smooth Hydrangeas (Hydrangea Arborescens) grow on new wood. Examples of this category are Annabelle and the Incredible Series. Sunlight needs are at least four hours a day. Direct afternoon sun is hard on most hydrangeas and causes them to wilt. • Oakleaf Hydrangeas bloom on old wood. Oakleaf hydrangeas are heat tolerant and can reach heights of 6 feet. The oak leaf looking foliage turns reddish bronze in the fall. It needs full sun in the morning and some shade in the afternoon.

Climbing Hydrangeas

• Mountain Hydrangeas (Hydrangea Serrata) grow on old wood and new wood. Like most hydrangeas, they prefer morning sun and afternoon shade. They are similar to lace cap hydrangeas, but have smaller flowering habits. Examples include the Tuff Stuff Series. Fertilization: Choose a 5-10-5 fertilizer for hydrangeas according to Monrovia’s expert Nicholas Stadden. The middle number references phosphate which is needed to increase blooms.

Pentwater as we know it today is more of a tourist town. The population swells and drops seasonally and it is full of things like restaurants and bars, ice cream shops, art studios and marinas. But this wasn’t always the case. There was once a time when the number of sawmills rivaled the number of shops, not that there were very many of either, and the population stayed near a steady 300, rather than being in a constant state of flux. Specifically, I’m referring to April 20, 1861, when the first newspaper press was established in Pentwater. Pentwater then, as it is now, was defined by its relationship with the lake. Only instead of being used for leisurely cruises and a general admiration of beauty, it was used as a means to transport lumber. That’s right, as hard as it may be to imagine, Pentwater in the latter half of the 19th century was a booming lumber town. In fact, it was this lumber trade which attracted a certain Chicago based lumber baron whose name many of you might know, Charles Mears. Mears arrived in 1855 and made a number of improvements to the town to aid the lumber trade in the area and the booming industry did what booming industries do best; It attracted more people. As the population continued to grow it became apparent that Pentwater needed a newspaper, and so the Oceana Times was created in 1861, only six years after Charles Mears arrived. The newspaper at this time cost only $1 a year and was published weekly. If you wanted the paper delivered to


your home, it would run you an extra 25 cents. The Oceana Times lasted until 1880, when it was replaced by the Pentwater News which continued to run for another 81 years before finally shutting down in 1961. Fifty of those years were spent in a building on Hancock Street, across from what is now the Village Marina. If you are familiar with Pentwater, then you probably recognize this building as the Brass Anchor today. Imagining the Brass Anchor being filled with printing presses and newspaper reporters, more than anything, probably illustrates how different the Pentwater of today is from the Pentwater lumber town of old. If the history of the newspaper or the town interests you at all, you are in luck. The Pentwater Historical Society has over 100 years of back issues on microfilm, all you have to do is talk to the museum director about accessing them. This could come in handy for anybody writing articles or doing research on Pentwater’s past. The historical society also has plans to digitize their library, allowing the microfilm to be better preserved while also making general access much, much easier.

A summer in Pentwater seems pretty relaxing by itself, but any visitors (or locals) needing a break from all the bustle and activity on Hancock Street could do worse than beach yoga, available five mornings a week at Charles Mears State Park from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. The practices, as they’re known, are run by Cindy Beth Davis-Dykema, who discovered the joys of beach yoga while going to college at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and decided to introduce them to her home of West Michigan. “Basically the idea was just because we have a gorgeous shoreline and it’s a good reason to get people onto it, get out and moving in the morning,” DavisDykema said with a smile. ‘Yoga’ can sometimes seem like an intimidating word, perhaps conjuring up images of fitness enthusiasts performing impossible stretches that would crack an average person’s limbs. That’s

not what Davis-Dykema’s practice is about, though. “A lot less thinking and doing and a lot more being and feeling, is what we say,” Davis-Dykema said. “A lot more celebration and a lot less judgment. It’s all about gentle movement and mobility. “It’s about the sensory experiences, what you’re hearing on the shore, what you’re seeing and what you’re smelling, even tasting the fresh air. Touching the sand between your toes and your fingers.”

Her practices, which cost $10 per session, have proven to be quite popular; over the nine seasons she’s run them, attendance has grown from “one or two people out here and me” to a reliable attendance of 10 to 20 people as long as the weather cooperates. Some visitors are Pentwater regulars who enjoy the practices so much that they tell DavisDykema they’re part of the reason they chose to buy nearby property, and others are fresh faces. Thursday’s practice involved about a


dozen visitors. This particular practice included all women, but anyone of any age or gender can participate, and often do. Davis-Dykema said she’s had kids as young as four in the practice, as well as “a gentleman in his 80s” and “folks who have had four knee replacements.” “It’s really a practice that meets you wherever you are,” Davis-Dykema said. Visitors can pick up relaxation and self-care techniques at the beach that they can then use in everyday life. A three-part breath cycle “that’s a conscious chest, ribs and belly breath”, Davis-Dykema said, can be used to take a moment to absorb and regroup if needed. Self-awareness is emphasized, as well as community. “We teach a lot in this practice about meeting yourself where you are and being conscious and aware of what your limitations might be,” Davis-Dykema said. “They might be physical, or it might just be that you have less energy today because you have a toddler that was up all night, or you were sleeping in a funny bed at a cottage you rented. It’s

really about building awareness, building community and building self-care and self-kindness.” Davis-Dykema, who also works with Kalon Arts and Yoga Company and the Michigan Lighthouse Conservancy, says jokingly that her only long-term plan for her beach yoga practice is to stay “until they kick me off the beach”. In addition to her weekday sessions in Pentwater, she runs a Saturday morn-

ing practice at Silver Lake State Park in Mears. She’ll also hosts a sunset yoga practice on the Charles Mears beach the Friday evening of Pentwater Homecoming, Aug. 13 at 7:15 p.m., which costs $15. “I hope to be six days a week until I’m too old to do it anymore, or they won’t let me,” Davis-Dykema said. “That’s kind of my goal.”

Coffee/Smoothie Bagel Bar

It was the slow tempo of the song, and the high crystalline voice of the singer, constantly distorted by the vanishing radio signal scuffing his voice like the scratches on a fine gem as he sang the words “Give me time,” in the air conditioned car with the windows up that concealed you from the oppressive waves of heat, which left you feeling as though you traveled in a self-contained bubble, insulated from the world, and caused you to think that time had expanded, like the notes in the song, like the moods in the car, like the view of the road outside the windshield. You knew that the car doors would be opened at your destination and you would step out, relishing in the immediate change of climate and smells, and in this feeling, which you’ve had before in the previous seasons, which you knew that you would have again throughout all of the summers in the years to come and you felt for a moment that this was not one point along the line of your life, but many, all one in the same, coming up again and again like a needle stitching a thread of contrasting color in the fabric of your life. It was one recurrent scenario that wrapped you up in the airs of nostalgia, greeting you as an old friend, but being unchanged by the years, more unchanged than any person could ever be by time, and you knew you would see this friend again. But for now, your father was angry, your mother was crying, and you were missing. You rode on in your self-contained bubble, splitting the world in two.

All will all be considered – be creative. The chamber is looking for photographs from all seasons to showcase Pentwater in all its glory. Photographs submitted by the July 29 deadline will be ju-

ried by chamber volunteers. Images selected for the calendar will include a photo credit and a listing of the photographer’s website if available.

Pentwater Civic Band continues into its fourth concert of the summer by McKenna Golat PTW Intern

The Pentwater Civic Band is still going strong as its fourth concert was given on the village green, Thursday, July 15. “We love it,” Anna Frazier, a concertgoer, said. “It’s a tradition; we come every year, and we enjoy it.” The Pentwater Civic Band was started in 1947. The age range of the band goes from late-80s to as young as 12 years old. Some of the members have been playing since the band was created. The band does not have a director, instead, the first trumpet will call out the number of a music piece and they will play from there. They mostly perform marches or polkas. Civic Band President Terry Cluchey said he hopes more

young people join the band. “It’s hard to get people out of high school, or even in high school, to come play with us in summertime,” he said. Many people came to the village Green to see the band perform. Children danced with family members as the band played. Concertgoers were happy the weather was nice. Many said they were glad to be able to see live music again after COVID-19 restrictions. Frazier, who is from West Virginia but has family in Pentwater, likes that the band still plays every year. Her favorite song the band usually plays is “Stars and Stripes Forever.” “It’s a great tradition that they’ve continued to do for many years, and I hope they continue to do it forever,” she said. Another concertgoer who was happy the band is still playing is Kalamazoo native Jacob Hopson. He has been coming to Pentwater and watching the band play for 35 years. He hoped the band would play American classics like the

“Star-Spangled Banner” and “Dance with the Flame.” Hopson also said he looked forward to the band playing “The Chicken Dance,” as that song is always a hit with the kids. He loves the musicianship and artistry of the civic band. “I think it’s a great thing,” Hopson said. “They’ve been around doing this for nearly 100 years or so and I just love that history.” The concert lasted for a full hour. The Pentwater Civic Band will continue to play on the village green for the remainder of the summer. Concert are scheduled for Thursdays at 8 p.m.
