Sculpture to pay tribute to Scottville Clown Band, ag Harold Cronk has role of lead sculptor SCOTTVILLE — During the annual patriotic concert of the Scottville Clown Band Tuesday night, the next installment of the Mason County Sculpture Trail was revealed, a sculpture that will pay tribute to the Clown Band and the agricultural heritage of Scottville. Earlier this year, the Scottville Sculpture Committee commissioned local artist/ filmmaker Harold Cronk to create the trail’s first Scottville sculpture, “Forward

March.” The sculpture will feature cartoon-like clowns dressed in hobo outfits, similar to outfits worn by the original band members in the early 1900s. At least two of the clowns will be playing musical instruments in a “round,” which will move and will be located in front of the Scottville Clown Band Shell near the Scottville Optimist Center. The sculpture will feature buttons that visitors can push to play Clown Band music, and the arms and legs of the figures will be moveable. The sculpture will also include hidden elements that reveal the town’s history. SEE SCULPTURE, PAGE 3

Welcome to Summerfest

E

ach summer, the city of Scottville hosts its annual Summerfest celebration in the heart of the city’s downtown area. Residents flock to South Main Street for cherished events like the classic car show and the rubber ducky race, and every so often a new event pops up to bring new life to the festival. This year is no different. Summerfest will take place in downtown Scottville on Friday, July 7 and Saturday, July 8. There are several old tried and true favorites on weekend’s schedule, from Saturday’s Strawberry Social at the Scottville Senior Center to the beer tasting at Bottle & Can, now in its second year. But Summerfest also has

something new in store — Saturday’s Kids Power Wheels Derby, an event first introduced at the 2016 Harvest Festival, has been amped up by sponsorship from TNT Demolition Derby, and added to the Summerfest

schedule. “TNT Demolition Derby is sponsoring the Kids Power Wheels Demo Derby at noon near the railroad tracks, just south of Tom’s Barber Shop,” Scottville City Manager Amy

Williams said. “We first debuted this at last year’s Harvest Festival and it was so popular that we wanted to bring it back. Amy Williams, In the Scottville wake of the City Manager Harvest Festival being called off for 2017, Williams said the inclusion of a high-quality children’s event was particularly important to this year’s festivities. “We feel that this is a great addition to the line-up as it is something for the kids to do and also to watch,” she said. In addition to the demo derby, the traditional Rubber Ducky Race has also undergone something of a makeover.

After years of reliable use, the original fleet of rubber duckies is being retired and a new batch has been purchased. “These duckies came all the way from the United Kingdom,” Williams said. “They made it across the pond and now they’re going to race down the Pere Marquette river.” To help raise money to offset the cost of purchasing new ducks for the popular event, the old ducks will be available for purchase Saturday at Riverside Park. “The old ducks will be sold three for $1,” Williams said. “We thought they’d be a nice memento... a nice piece of memorabilia.” Scottville Summerfest starts at 5 p.m. Friday with registration for the classic car show, and activities continue through Saturday’s 3 p.m. Rubber Ducky Race.

SCULPTURE: A kinetic, interactive work that draws on Scottville’s history FROM PAGE 2

For example, the bass drummer’s mallet will be accented by an apple. The sculpture’s moving parts will be operated by items such as old tractor and implement parts. A fourth clown will be relaxing on top of the roof of the band shell, his leg slowly swinging back and forth. The Scottville Sculpture Committee includes representatives of city government, the Scottville Clown Band, the Scottville Optimist Club, the business community and residents. “We wanted to create a sculpture that represented the best of Scottville,” said committee member Rob Alway, who is also a resident, business owner and treasurer of the Scottville Clown Band. “We also wanted to commission a sculptor who knows our community intimately and understands the spirit of Scott-

ville, its past, its present and its future. The committee members believe that Harold Cronk was a natural for the job.” Cronk said “Forward March” will be a fun, interactive sculpture that will keep the visitor coming back to discover more of its secrets. “‘Forward March’ is a kinetic interactive work that draws on Scottville’s rich history with the goal of inspiring both our youth and the young at heart to lead the way into the future,” Cronk said. “There are several artists who have had an indelible influence on my work. Alexander Calder, Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendak and Walt Disney are just a few of my favorites. For me, the common thread drawn through the heart of each of theses amazing artists is their unrelenting embrace of their child-like spirit. In a world wrought with strife and political upheaval, we desperately need

Therefore, the mechanics of this work will be created from and powered by agricultural elements. The structural supports, or, ‘pillars,’ of the piece will reference some of the great men and women who are responsible for laying the foundation for Scottville.

SCULPTURE: Film artist returns to love of sculpture in plan to create area’s next piece FROM PAGE 3

“It points to the future. It speaks to our ingenuity. It celebrates our ability to forge ahead. It will play music. and it will march. “And lastly, the position of the sculpture at 2 p.m. on the first day of the Harvest Festival points to a clue that leads to the long lost treasure of Hiram Scott.” The members of the sculpture committee said that they wanted to make the Clown Band the primary theme of the sculpture while still playing homage to the town’s agricultural roots. “While agriculture has played an important role in the history of Scottville, the Clown Band is known throughout Michigan and beyond,” Alway said, adding that the Clown Band has already become one of the first major donors of the sculpture.

How to help THOSE WISHING to contribute to the sculpture may send a donation to Scottville Sculpture, Community Foundation for Mason County, P.O. Box 10, Ludington, MI 49431. The sculpture will be located in front of the Clown Band Shell, with tentative plans of placing it in a newly designed green space that is currently part of the parking lot. “Our intention is to make the sculpture and the band shell the gathering place for the town,” said Scottville City Manager Amy Williams, a member of the sculpture committee and the Scottville Optimist board. “We, the members of the committee, believe that this sculpture will be a major attraction for our town and will help cre-

ate a revival, of sorts. In order to help accomplish that, we knew we needed to give the sculpture its own space. We are hoping that the band shell property evolves into a park setting.” Williams and Alway said the sculpture committee has been holding conversations with the Scottville Optimist Club board on ways to create a visually appealing space that will benefit not only the city but the Optimist Club as well. “This project goes beyond just the sculpture,” Joe Knowles, president of the Scottville Optimist Club and also a member of the sculpture committee, said. “The goal of the Scottville Optimist Club is to update the building’s exterior and interior to make it a facility that will serve the modern needs of the community.” “This sculpture could be a turning point for Scottville’s

economy and create a new point of pride for the town,” said Kathy Maclean, executive director of the Ludington & Scottville Area Chamber of Commerce. “The sculpture offers a different perspective than what we have seen to date on the trail and it certainly is symbolic of Scottville.” Harold Cronk is a 1993 graduate of Mason County Central High School and a graduate of West Shore Community College. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Central Michigan University, where he majored in art and K-12 education with an emphasis in sculpture. He taught high school art at Evart High School for four years before changing his career to filmmaking. He and his wife, Amy, moved to Los Angeles in 2004 where he worked on several film projects. They eventually moved back to Mason Coun-

ty and he began 10 West Studios with partner Matthew Tailford and also EMC Productions with Scottville native Edgar Struble. Cronk directed the movie “God’s Not Dead,” one of the highest grossing faith-based films of all time. “I have enjoyed my career in film and find it very challenging,” Cronk said. “But, my first love is sculpture and it’s an honor to have been asked to create this piece for my hometown. I keep coming up with new ideas to add to this sculpture. It’s really an amazing challenge. I think this is an opportunity for Scottville to shine.” While Cronk is the lead sculptor, he said he has been collaborating with others to design the mechanics of the piece. “I am relying on people like John Holcomb to help use their engineering skills on making the sculpture move and be interac-

Proud to support our

tive,” he said. The Tuesday announcement of the sculpture was also the launch of the fundraising campaign. “We have received a financial boost from the Ludington/Mason County Cultural Economic Development Task Force, along with some local businesses, organizations, and individuals, but we have a long way to go to reach our fund raising goal,” Alway said. “We are estimating that the sculpture itself will cost about $70,000 and we have about $25,000 committed so far. We are hoping to raise additional funds to help enhance the green space and possibly the Optimist Center itself.” Those wishing to contribute to the sculpture may send a donation to Scottville Sculpture, Community Foundation for Mason County, P.O. Box 10, Ludington, MI 49431.

MCCEF announces inaugural Spartan River Run

BECOME A SPONSOR

BY RILEY KELLEY DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER SCOTTVILLE — The annual rubber ducky race will not be the only opportunity to make a splash at this summer in Scottville, thanks to the Spartan River Run, a canoe and kayak race that will take participants along the Pere Marquette River from Custer Bridge to Scottville’s Riverside Park. Sponsored by the Mason County Central Educational Foundation and Paddle Sports, the first ever Spartan River Run will give the community a fun and fresh new way to contribute to MCC schools. The inaugural river run — a 9-mile canoe and kayak race along the Pere Marquette River from Custer to Scottville — will take place on Aug. 19. The race will begin at 10:30 a.m. at Custer Bridge, and lead to Scottville’s Riverside Park, where an award ceremony for the winners will be held at about 1 p.m. Event organizer and MCCEF

Scottville celebrates businesses BY RILEY KELLEY DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

RILEY KELLEY | DAILY NEWS FILE PHOTO

Laurie Cozart had the winning hand in the Celebrating Success poker run and took home this $500 Evoke kayak.

Loving Life At Every Age!

SCOTTVILLE — In early June, the people of Scottville took an evening to appreciate the local success stories of the past year at the annual Celebrating Success festival. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky on June 6 when the downtown area filled with residents, business owners and community leaders, gathering to commemorate a fruitful and healthy year of economic growth in the community. This year, there was plenty to celebrate. During the past 12 months, Scottville has seen the arrival of three new businesses: Honest Helpers, Matthew Knizacky’s Farm Bureau Insurance and Pool & Spa Center. “We are excited because we had these new businesses,” City Man-

ager Amy Williams said. “But it’s not just about those new businesses, but also those others that have been here and been established in Scottville for many, many years. “We want to celebrate the people who stayed with us,” Williams said. Representatives from several local businesses set up booths along both sides of Main Street in Scottville to honor the newest members of the downtown business community, as well as the veteran businesses that have stuck around for so long. Henry’s Landing was among the long-term businesses participating in Tuesday’s festivities. The Henry’s Landing booth hosted a poker run in which participants received playing card stamps from other booths with the hopes of winning a $500 kayak donated by the businesses of downtown Scottville and pur-

chased from Paddlesports “(The kayak) was purchased by all of the businesses here that are participating today, and we’re going to continue to do this. We picked five businesses this year, and we’ll pick another five next year, but everyone contributes to it,” said Sandra Johnson of Henry’s Landing. “The best hand wins the kayak, and the lowest hand wins a Wesco gift card.” At the end of the evening, the best hand and the kayak went to Laurie Cozart, while Agnes Graham received a $25 Wesco gift card. Other special activities for the event included a beer-tasting, held by Bottle and Can, a bounce house sponsored by Smith & Eddy Insurance, face-painting and children’s crafts hosted by FloraCraft and pizza samples handed out by North Country Café.

The Michigan State University Extension office brought back their famous Fender Blender — a stationary bicycle that powers a smoothie-making blender — to highlight the 4H Tech Wizards science and technology mentoring group that MSU Extension brings to Ludington, Mason County Central and Mason County Eastern school districts. “We’re kind of getting away from that cliché that 4H is just, as we put it, ‘sows, cows and clowns,” said Aaron Meyers of MSU Extension. “We do so much more than just animals at the county fair, and Tech Wizards, as our newest program, really exemplifies that.” Live musical entertainment was provided by Cats & Jammers.

MEETING THE NEW BUSINESSES Honest Helpers is a home health care agency owned by U.S. Air Force veteran Nate Mohr and his sister Danyal Englebrecht. The office, located at 141 S. Main St., opened its doors on March 1, and held its official ribbon-cutting ceremony during Tuesday’s event. Mohr, a certified nurse assistant, currently works with his sister and a small but growing staff to provide a variety of services, from basic homemaking care to direct nursing and clinical care. “Currently I go out into clients’ homes and care for them,” Mohr said, “from direct medical care … to just going in and spending time with clients.” Mohr and Englebrecht say that Scottville has been a supportive and welcoming environment for their business. “It’s ben very positive,” Englebrecht said. “Everyone’s been very responsive to what we do. Everyone has been just wonderful.” Mattew Knizacky’s Farm Bureau Insurance is a well-known entity in the area, as he has operated an office in Manistee for many years. The Scottville office, located at 106 S. Main St., opened in July 2016. Knizacky says it’s been a good year. “I’m really happy I’m here,” Knizacky said. “We’ve been growing, and meeting new people, and

Matt Knizacky’s Farm Bureau Insurance 106 S. Main St., Scottville (231) 398-3000 Honest Helpers 141 S. Main St., Scottville (231) 923-8258 I’m really enjoying it here.” The Pool & Spa Center moved in early May from its former location on U.S. 10 to 128 S. Main St. in Scottville. “It’s pretty recent, so not a lot of people know about it,” owner Lori Buchholz said. Buchholz made the decision to re-locate to downtown Scottville because she feels the storefront property on Main Street brings in more foot traffic and casual shoppers — even on slow days — than her previous location did. “I think it’s easier to find. Being on the highway, I would still get customers who would call and say, ‘I can’t find you, I’ve been up and down the road and I can’t see where you’re at.’ If you blinked, you missed it,” she said. Buchholz also works at Holden’s Home Emporium, right across the

street from her new location, and has a child attending Mason County Central Schools. “It just made sense,” she said. Live music at the Clown Band Shell As Celebrating Scottville came to a close, Andy Thomas and Kevin Kimes took the stage for summer’s first live music night at the Scottville Clown Band Shell at 7 p.m. Thomas and Kimes performed a series of covers, as well as original compositions. The summer concert series will continue at the Band Shell every Tuesday throughout the summer.
