athan Thomas, 15, of Hastings, takes his favorite chicken, Punky, for a ride in the basket of his three-wheeled bicycle. Thomas shows chickens and pigs at the Barry County Fair and is one of many special-needs youths in the area finding pride and success through 4-H programs. Oct. 6 to 12 is National 4-H Week, and clubs will be singing up members for the upcoming year. More than 1,000 Barry County youths and more than 350 adult volunteers participate in the county 4-H program that includes a variety of projects from livestock, to cooking and talent shows, arts and crafts, creative writing, photography, entrepreneurism, engineering, construction and more. There’s truly something for all youths — even those with special needs — in 4-H.

PHYSICAL & SEXUAL ABUSE What is Elder Abuse? Physical abuse is physical force or violence that results in bodily injury pain or impairment of a vulnerable older person. It is non-accidental, and includes not only physical assaults such as hitting or shoving, but the inappropriate use of drugs, restraints or confinement. A vulnerable adult includes anyone over age 18 who is unable to protect him/herself from abuse, neglect or exploitation because of a mental or physical impairment or because of advanced age. Sexual Elder Abuse is contact with a vulnerable adult without their consent. This can include physical sex acts, as well as showing a vulnerable adult pornographic material, forcing the person to watch sex acts, or forcing the adult to undress.

What are some of the signs of Elder Abuse? • Physical signs can include physical indicators such as: • Dislocations, fractures, broken bones • Cigarette burns • Bruising of the arms, inner thighs, torso • Genital or anal pain, irritation, or bleeding • Sexually transmitted diseases Behavioral indicators might include: • Implausible explanations or injury from the senior or caregiver • History of recurrence of injuries • Delay between the onset of injury and seeking medical care • Caregiver refuses to allow visitors to see a vulnerable adult alone • Inappropriate sex-role relationship between the vulnerable adult and caregiver • Panic attacks • Post-traumatic stress disorder • Sleep disturbances, such as insomnia

This message is brought to you by the Barry County Elder Abuse Prevention Work Group. For more information, contact the Barry County Commission on Aging at 269-948-4856

What do I do if I suspect someone I know is being physically or sexually abused? Speak up! Ask the older adult and listen closely to their response. If you believe they are a victim of abuse, report it to Michigan’s Elder Abuse Hotline, 1-855-444-3911. Be specific and give as much detailed information as you can. Your report will be held in confidence, with neither the victim nor the perpetrator knowing that you called. If you have observed criminal behavior, such as theft or assault, rape or battery, contact local law enforcement by dialing 9-1-1

Ask a school official how important a local newspaper is and you’ll get a response like you’ll read here from Tom Enslen. Ask a newspaper reader who lives outside our circulation area how much he misses his own local paper and you’ll feel the frustration of Bob Wilkinson in his remarks on this page. The Reminder and the Sun and News are a key tool for Enslen to tell his community about his district and to fight the negative perceptions in every school district that surround the effectiveness of schools in delivering 21st Century skills to an ever-changing work force. When his work takes him to the Nashville and Vermontville areas, Wilkinson picks up copies of the Reminder and the Maple Valley News and tells folks how fortunate they are to have a local, hometown newspaper that provides a regular tie for readers to their community. That’s what a newspaper does every week and with every article. Because that endeavor gets more financially challenging every week, that’s why we’re coming to you again with our second annual request for your assistance.

Long ago we saw the values of community and the role of a newspaper in drawing it together. Today, our mission remains to continue providing that link to each other through the publishing of our community newspapers. Your contribution to our voluntary subscription program -at whatever level you’re moved to give -- will allow us to maintain our level of coverage to the communities we serve in Barry County and beyond. Enclosed in this issue is a volunteer funding envelope for your convenience. You’re always welcome to drop off your gift in person at our Hastings office located at 1351 N. M-43 Hwy., too. In addition, our online Crowd-Funding site is up and running and can be accessed by clicking on the community funding icon at www.hastingsreminder.com Remember, too, how valued we consider your comments. We’re always anxious to hear your thoughts and ideas. Just as a newspaper is the lifeblood of a community, you are the inspiration that enables us. Thank you

Local newspaper is a school partner Generating accurate and positive perceptions of the realities in our public schools cannot be done without a collaborative partnership with local news agencies. J-Ad Graphics has proven to be exactly that organization and we are grateful for the cooperation we are afforded in delivering the kind of news that serves to lift up our organization. Readers are provided with accurate and up-to-date information regarding board meetings, upcoming events, sports coverage, and evidence of the quality education our students receive. Our students and staff are featured weekly and the good news is often the buzz in the community in the days that follow the paper’s Saturday delivery. We do not have the same partnership with the larger news agencies in the

greater Grand Rapids region. More often, we find ourselves subject to coverage focused on negative components of what all large organizations have to deal with from time to time. Thankfully, the apparent vision of Fred Jacobs and his staff is one of thorough and fair representation of all we do to serve our kids. Our kids, our school system, and our community deserve to be recognized for all of the good taking place in our classrooms. We are thankful for the partnership with J-Ad Graphics, and look forward to a long and productive relationship as we continue down the road of 21st Century education. Tom Enslen, Superintendent Thornapple-Kellogg Public Schools

Always value your local newspaper I’ve been a longtime resident of Jackson where I grew up enjoying a hometown newspaper. That all changed when the Ann Arbor News bought it out. Production moved and the paper started changing ... all the reporters — gone, people I knew. The paper became more like what I call canned news. Local coverage went by the wayside.

I’m a former facilities director and transportation supervisor for East Jackson Community Schools so, when the daily paper went to publishing three days per week, I noticed the news on the kids in the schools and sports really fell off as did the classified sections. I’m also a veteran a president of our local Vietnam Veterans of America chapter. I miss seeing news about my neighbors, about who got married or what the local township is doing — it’s gone ... This is a sad situation in my eyes because we no longer have a hometown newspaper. You do a service to the community with your local newspapers. Jackson moved away from that and it’s a disservice. Bob Wilkinson, Trainer ABC Training and Testing, Jackson

For you convenience, we’ve enclosed a volunteer funding envelope or you can go online at www.hastingsreminder.com and use our Crowd-Funding site to contribute.
