Addictive drug that can shatter lives

‘is back strong in Jackson’

orced to choose between milk and heroin, Joe Pritchard called his dealer. After years of abusing prescriptionstrength painkillers — Percocet, Vicodin, OxyContin — it took the 39-year-old father of three only a week to develop a crippling heroin habit. He spent $80 to $90 a day on the drug, eventually stealing from family, friends and stores to get high. The heroin addiction gripped him fast and hard. It surprised him. Within Deadly months, Pritchard had drug track marks on his arms Overdoses — a junkie. in Jackson “The County since heroin was 2005 could be just so conas high as 40. suming, you See story on know. If I Page A3 didn’t have a gallon of milk in the fridge, and I had $10, I’d buy a pack of heroin,” he said. “There were times when I would actually be in the midst of shooting heroin, and I’d be thinking to myself, ‘I hope this is good enough to kill me.’” Once confined to dope houses and dens, slithering in the seedy underbelly of American cities in the 1970s, heroin is now a drug abused by all ages, all incomes and all over. In short, heroin is back. “And it is back strong in Jackson County,” Undersheriff Tom Finco said. Between 2000 and 2007, officers with the Jackson Narcotic Enforcement Team, an interagency anti-drug squad policing the county, made 22 heroin arrests. In 2008, they made 24 See HEROIN, on A3

The Citizen Patriot is taking an in-depth look at heroin’s resurgence and the destruction it causes in Jackson County. TODAY: Heroin is back, and it is back strong in Jackson County. Once confined to dope houses and dens, heroin is now a drug abused by all ages, all incomes and all over. MONDAY: Heroin kills. It strains families and destroys lives. The drug lands people in jail, rehab and the gutter. It killed a 24-year-old in May and tore apart a Jackson family of five. TUESDAY: Beating heroin is not a option. Addicts struggle internally, knowing they will square off with the disease for the rest of their lives. Police chase the drug, its users and dealers without end, knowing heroin cannot be eliminated, just contained.


Fa st fa ct s a bout heroi n ■ Heroin is a Schedule I narcotic, meaning it has a high potential for abuse, has no current accepted medical use in the United States and there is not a safe way to use the drug. ■ Heroin is an opiate made from the naturally occurring morphine found in the seed pot of the Asian poppy plant.

■ Heroin in the United States typically comes from Mexico, Columbia, Burma or Afghanistan. ■ Heroin can be a chalky white or brown powder or a black sticky substance known as “black tar” heroin. ■ Heroin has been commonly injected through needles. As purity has increased, however, it can

now be smoked or snorted. ■ Heroin is typically sold in packs of one-tenth of a gram, enough for one use. Packs, also called bindles, can cost between $10 to $20 on the street. — Sources: Jackson Narcotic Enforcement Team, Drug Enforcement Administration, National Institute on Drug Abuse


Tough-talking Lansing mayor wants to be next governor During the auto industry bailout in late 2008 — as Detroit’s carmakers teetered on the cliff — Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero became a fixture on cable news networks, firing off accusations

and talking points with torpedolike speed, and punctuating each with a shake of the fist or a pointed finger. As he sparred with television hosts on Fox News, CNN and CNBC, he mounted a vigorous defense of both union workers and the automakers, while train-

CELEBRITY WATCH Husband: Zsa Zsa Gabor in critical condition — Actress Zsa

Zsa Gabor was in critical condition Friday after undergoing hip replacement surgery earlier in the week, her husband said. Gabor, 93, had injuries to the right side of her body, including a broken hip, after she fell out GABOR of bed last weekend trying to get into a wheelchair at her Bel-Air home, said Prince Frederic von Anhalt, Gabor’s husband. Gabor initially appeared to be recovering after the hip surgery Monday at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, her publicist John Blanchette said. Blanchette said von Anhalt told him Friday that “doctors were working very hard to stabilize her.” “Right now she’s not communicative,” Blanchette said. “Only time will tell.” He said doctors had taken Gabor off morphine and were putting her on another painkiller with the hope that would help the situation.

O P I N I O N Issue: Interim City Manager Warren Renando completes his first six weeks on the job with several ideas in various stages of completion. Our say: For the first time in years, there’s the buzz of activity in Jackson’s City Hall. “The new boss has brought on an urgency that city government hasn’t seen since ... well, the last time Renando was manager, in 2004. He is pushing City Council members and the residents who elected them to take on issues that have lingered or, due to the city’s economic woes, can’t be ignored.”


Judge accused of fixing tickets, dismissing cases — Jackson

3 O

County District Judge James Justin, who was suspended from the bench Monday, is accused of “fixing” traffic tickets and dismissing up to 600 cases “under questionable circumstances.” Justin is not accused of dismissing cases for personal gain or any other reason except to give breaks to people charged with violations. Allegations and Justin’s response are spelled out in a Michigan Supreme Court file that would be secret except Justin asked for it to be open. The Supreme Court ordered Justin’s suspension Monday, lasting until two complaints against him are decided by the state Judicial Tenure Commission. District Judge Joseph Filip filed one of the two complaints against Justin, accusing him of changing Secretary of State records to remove traffic convictions for 65 drivers. The other complaint against Justin was filed by James Hughes, regional administrator of the State Court Administrative Office, accusing Justin of engineering long delays in his cases, improperly using a type of court order called Peace Bonds, failing to order defendants to pay money due to the city of Jackson and “interposing himself” in cases assigned to other judges. The judge contends he did nothing outside his authority, and he dismissed cases only when presented with “solid evidence.”

Most of the movie is being filmed in Michigan cities. The crew filmed a scene in nearby Mason on July 1.

Two sent to prison for robbery — Jackson County Circuit Judge John

McBain sentenced two 19-year-olds to prison Thursday for the Aug. 1 robbery of Buddy’s Mini Mart on N. West Avenue. Devon Glenn Jr. is going to prison for 15 to 30 years and Georval Pennington, 25 to 40 years. According to testimony at the trial of another co-defendant, Kyle Ybarra, the “wheel man,” was waiting for the two in a nearby Malibu, but Glenn and Pennington never got in the car. They took off through backyards. As they tried to get away, they dropped a toy gun, clothes and money. A jury found Ybarra, 17, guilty of two counts of armed robbery and one count of conspiracy. He is to be sentenced next month.

Never stop tri-ing — For Hannah Derr and Kathleen

Conlon, finishing a triathlon was as much a validation of their strength as their courage. Derr, 17, was diagnosed with scoliosis when she was 6, and Conlon, 16, was diagnosed with leukemia three years ago. The pair finished the Clark Lake Triathlon on July 18. “We decided we wanted to do this to show that we could,” Conlon said. In the spring, the longtime friends decided to compete in the triathlon and began training on the Spirit Trail and at the YMCA. Despite putting in two months of effort before the race, they were not worried about their times. Although they finished together, the girls were not side-by-side throughout the race. They completed the swim stage at about the same time, but Derr is a stronger bicyclist and pulled away. Conlon caught up during the run stage, as they expected. The two plan to compete in the event next year.



Donna was referred to the Allegiance Hyperbaric Center and said, “They explained how hyperbaric therapy works and what I could expect from my treatments. It was very easy to talk and ask questions.” She added, “the staff was great, too, and treated me very kindly.”


With her wound now completely healed, Donna is “feeling 100 percent better.”

Law protects nursing moms — A provision, which

became effective immediately upon President Obama’s signature in March, mandates that every business in the country provide a place for employees who are nursing mothers to pump breast milk. It also says that employers must provide reasonable unpaid break time each time an employee needs to express breast milk for her nursing child until that child’s first birthday. The provision only applies to hourly workers. Women who work on salary are not covered by it. The business must provide a place for them to do so — other than a bathroom — that is shielded from view and free from intrusion by co-workers and the public. A fact sheet released by the Department of Labor on Thursday said if a business cannot dedicate a specific room solely for use by nursing mothers, the room it chooses has to be available when needed.

Heroin has been around a long time; ‘it’s not going away’ Continued from A1

arrests, including a major bust of several drug houses, said Michigan State Police Lt. Dave Cook, who heads JNET. That number dropped to 14 in 2009, but Cook does not think heroin is fading. “Heroin has been around for a long time, and it’s not going away,� Cook said. Most of Jackson County’s heroin, produced either in Afghanistan or Mexico, comes from the Detroit area, Cook said. Users and lowlevel dealers bring the drug into the county in small quantities, not trucks loaded with kilos of the powder or tar. Heroin is sold on the streets in packs or bindles, about a tenth of a gram, a single serving or enough to get high once, Cook said. Often folded up in a lottery ticket or a scrap of a magazine page, a pack fetches between $10 and $20. “It’s hitting any race, religious creed, national origin, any age group,� Cook said. “I don’t know why heroin has made such a comeback, but it has.� Heroin’s comeback could be traced to opiate drugs — morphine, methadone, OxyContin, Vicodin — commonly prescribed to treat pain. Connie Gallagher, program manager of the Allegiance Addiction Recovery Center, said people get prescriptions, get hooked and continue to use. Pills are expensive on the street. They switch to heroin. Pritchard’s descent into heroin addiction started nearly 10 years ago with a Percocet. It was his first opiate, his first experiment with hard drugs. As a manager at Kaywood Products and later Kaywood-Textron in Jackson, Pritchard made about $70,000 a year. He went to work every day, spent nights with his wife and family. He fished with his dad and with his children. He played golf. It was a good life, he said. Then chaos started. When Kaywood-Textron closed in 2001, Pritchard went to work for Schrader Machine & Tool until that company closed in 2002. Unemployed for the first time, Pritchard was at a low point in his life. One day, after Pritchard complained about a headache, his late father gave him a Percocet. “I felt great,� he said. “I felt great that day. By the end of the week, I’m eating eight, nine, 10 of them a day, and it just got worse and worse.� Pritchard convinced a doctor to give him a prescription of his own. When that ran out, he stole from friends and family. “I changed a Motrin prescription once to Vicodin and thought that I would get away with it,� he said. He did not. In and out of jail for thefts fueled by his addiction, Pritchard would not stay clean. Even simple traffic tickets, speeding, improper plates, expired insurance or a driver’s license, built into legal headaches as Pritchard refused to deplete his dope fund to pay fines. Once in 2005, he told staff at the

Medical Examiner’s Office: Deaths from heroin since 2005 could be as high as 40 Heroin is deadly. At least eight people have died from heroin overdoses since 2005 in Jackson County, but it could be as high as 40, according to the county’s Medical Examiner’s Office. Toxicology tests done after a possible fatal overdose sometimes detect heroin and sometimes detect morphine, an opiate prescribed for pain relief. Once heroin, diacetylmorphine, enters the body, it starts to break down over the course of a couple of hours into morphine. “If you’ve got morphine in your blood, it could be heroin and it’s a few hours old, or it could just be morphine,� said Josh Gunn, a toxicologist with AIT Labs in Indianapolis. AIT conducts postmortem toxicology tests for the county’s medical examiner office. Heroin travels into the brain much easier than morphine does. Once in the brain, heroin breaks down into morphine, Gunn said. The fact that heroin delivers morphine to the brain makes the drug, in part, so addictive and dangerous. There is a thin line between a deadly heroin overdose and one in which a person survives, said jail he thought he might commit suicide, thinking it would get him out of jail and to the “nut house.� Instead, he spent 14 days detoxing on a concrete floor in a special suit designed to protect him from himself. In September 2009, he tried heroin. He started because a $10 pack of heroin seemed cheaper than a $50 OxyContin. “I failed to realize, OxyContin, that buzz will last 12 hours, where heroin, one pack might last you two hours,� he said. “So within a week, I’m using $80, $90 of heroin every day, every day.� In a matter of months, heroin consumed his life. His wife, Me-

school kids,� Finco said. “It’s pretty unbelievable that these young kids are getting tied into this horrible drug.� Young adults make up a large percentage of the people who stand in front of District Judge John McBain for heroin-related crimes. The trend of 17- to 25-year-olds, he said, is tragic and unfortunate. “It’s a horrendous addiction,� McBain said. “They can start from pot and be using heroin quickly.� It took a 24-year-old woman only a few years to graduate from marijuana to heroin.

lissa, started to use. In November 2009, they were caught trying to steal Christmas gifts from Sears. Melissa Pritchard went to jail and then rehab. Joe Pritchard went to rehab, got clean, and on July 12, came home to try and rebuild his family. Heroin grew in popularity in the late 1970s in dope houses “full of unsightly people shooting up and hookers and stuff,� Finco said. Use dropped off in the county when crack and cocaine came on the scene in the 1980s. Then the drug of choice shifted to methamphetamine. “We used to see it in dope houses, and now you are seeing it in high

Dr. Mark Smith, director of Allegiance Health’s emergency room. Smith said the emergency room sees between 20 and 30 heroin-related overdoses a year. The hospital does not track specific drug overdoses. In 2008, an estimated 200,666 people in the United States went to emergency rooms for heroin overdoses, according to the Drug Abuse Warning Network, a public health surveillance system that monitors drug-related ER visits. “It basically sedates your brain, either mildly if you take a little, or a lot to the point where you stop breathing,� Smith said. “Most heroin overdoses, if they are bad enough, result in death.� If doctors know a patient has overdosed on heroin, they use Narcan to bring the person out of the coma-like state. Narcan blocks heroin receptor sites in the brain and reverses the effects of the narcotic. However, many people who overdose on heroin never make it to the emergency room. They go straight to the morgue. “Usually the patients are found right there with the needle still in the vein,� Smith said. — Aaron Aupperlee

program in September. Her drug use started in her early teens with pot and alcohol. At 16 and 17 years old, she was abusing OxyContin and Vicodin. She soon learned heroin was cheap and available. She started using. “By the time I knew what was going on, I already had an addiction, and I didn’t know how to do anything with it,� she said. “And the pills were expensive, and heroin is cheaper. Heroin was getting more common. It was around town. You could get it quite a few places.� Michael and Corinda Hirst said young adults do not know what they are getting into when they try heroin. The Hirsts’ son, Andrew, died of a heroin overdose May 17. He was 24. The Grass Lake High School graduate abused prescription painkillers, then switched to heroin. He tried to kick the drugs. He went to rehab — three times — and jail for 90 days. Each time, he told his parents he felt strong enough to beat the addiction. He battled, but each time, he lost. Andrew Hirst switched from OxyContin to heroin by 2009. Heroin is cheaper, and his parents think that is why he switched. In 2008, Michael and Corinda Hirst suspected something was awry with their son but did not know what. One day in May, Michael Hirst and his son got into an argument in their driveway. At one point, Michael Hirst asked his son if he “was on something.� His son replied, “absolutely not,� then climbed into his car and sped down the family’s long driveway. Michael Hirst stayed in the driveway and listened. He heard the car stop and turn around at the end of the long driveway. “He told me the story, and we took him straight to rehab,� Michael Hirst said. “He wanted to fight it, and he fought it hard.� Andrew Hirst stayed clean for awhile, his father said, and his father let him come back to work. On May 17, Andrew Hirst was working for his father at the site of the new Baker College. A foreman and Hirst family friend, Dennis Wenzlick, noticed Andrew was gone. He found him unconscious. Wenzlick performed CPR, but Andrew died at the scene, according to his family. Ten days after Andrew Hirst’s death, the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office charged Amanda Ball, 18, of Sylvan Township in Washtenaw County with providing heroin and delivering a controlled substance causing death, a felony punishable by a maximum penalty of life in prison. The case is pending. Heroin is a bigger problem in Jackson County than Andrew Hirst, Amanda Ball and Joe Pritchard. The Hirsts have a list — now with more than 25 names — of heroin users in the communities around Grass Lake. They notice drug deals happening in front of stores. People they have never met call to say their son, daughter, husband or wife is addicted. “It just shocks me how fast it spread,� Corinda Hirst said. “Like wildfire.�

Hold your breath, kick your feet and move your arms around. Of course, swimming lessons at the Ella Sharp Park pool are a little more involved than those three steps, but that’s a start. The pool has been hosting swim lessons since it opened in 1975, and instructors pride themselves on fun and playful lessons

that emphasize safety. “This place is a little gem in my mind,� Stephanie Keith of Mason said. Keith has been bringing her 12-year-old daughter, Rachel, to the Ella Sharp Park pool since Rachel was 2. Keith’s 4-year-old daughter, Hadley, is in the level 1 class, and Keith hopes Rachel will try to be trained as a junior lifeguard. “They are very safety conscious and make learning fun and playful,� she said. “That’s very important.�

Linda Crouch, community center supervisor and head lifeguard at the pool, has worked at the pool for more than 25 years. She said people come from all over the county for lessons. “My staff is wonderful,� she said. The swim instructors, all lifeguards at the pool, make the lessons fun, Crouch said. About 1,000 kids have been coming to the pool each summer to take swim lessons, Crouch said, but the instructor-to-child ratio is kept manageable to give each child a

safe environment in which to learn. Crouch said it’s especially rewarding when children get the hang of swimming. Registration for each two-week session takes place on the Friday before the session begins and must be completed in person. The next registration date is July 30, and the cost is $25. The two-week session will begin Aug. 2. Lessons and registration times are scheduled in 50-minute sessions from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Bernero seeks Democratic nomination for governor and a string of expletives to ensure he got what he wanted. “I’m in this because I care about people,” Bernero said. “The reason I get passionate — when I get impatient — is that we don’t have time to waste. People are hurting.” Bernero, 46, will face House Speaker Andy Dillon in the Democratic primary for governor on Aug. 3. Bernero has trailed Dillon in most polls but has picked up several key endorsements along the way.

Early years In the Bernero household, you came of age by learning how to defend yourself — verbally. Bernero’s parents’ home in Pontiac was the gathering place for extended family, friends and sometimes strangers. And once seated, all in attendance enjoyed traditional Italian dishes, wine and all-out debate. “Family gatherings were debating societies,” Bernero said. “You didn’t turn on the TV or radio when dinner was done. It was always this loud vibrant, boisterous discussion going on around the dinner table.” These discussions weren’t just a chance to spout off; you had to have evidence to make your case. “You didn’t bring up a subject unless you had done some work on it,” he said. He credits his mother, Virginia, for his gift of gab and for his personality. “She spoke Italian, she swore in Italian. She had a hot Italian temper,” he said. His father, Giulio, on the other hand, was a man of few words. But his work ethic — Giulio came to America in 1948 from Genoa, Italy, and started his own produce business — is what Bernero remembers. The youngest of five children, Bernero, his two brothers and two sisters would often help at their grandfather’s grocery store. Other family members helped, too, including his aunt, Betty Fortino, the longtime Oakland County commissioner and now Waterford Township clerk. At just 10 years old, Bernero cut his teeth on her first campaign. “Virgil was a campaigner the day he was born. He just loved everything about it,” Fortino said. “I think he did as much walking and knocking on doors as I did.”

Higher learning Bernero served as class president at Adrian College for three years and strived to be a strong advocate for students. He was unafraid to take on the college president or even the mayor if that’s what had to be done. For example, after students

Bernero contacted Adrian’s mayor, Jim Berryman, and railed against him and the city commission. “He thought that was horrible,” Berryman said in a recent interview. Berryman showed Bernero a state study that said parallel parking was safer, but Bernero was unswayed. The two, who are now close friends, each still think they won the argument. “I loved his spunk,” Berryman said. The following year, during convocation, which opens the fall semester and features speeches by the college and class president, Bernero didn’t pass on the chance to speak his mind. “I used the occasion to talk about some of the shortcomings that needed to be addressed by the administration,” Bernero said. “I was one who believed that the best way to be loyal to your institution was to bring the faults forward and have them dealt with.” Berryman, who was in the crowd that day, remembers watching the brash student lash out at the administration of then-college president Donald Stanton. “This guy’s got a lot of stones,” Berryman said he thought to himself during that speech. “That just shows his passion. He’s very passionate about what he gets involved in.” Stanton didn’t recall the speech, but said he enjoyed having a strong student council president like Bernero. “He did not bow down. I liked that about him,” Stanton said. “He has a sense of self. There was strength.” Even back then, Bernero was intentional about his future, Stanton said. The young student body president told Stanton he would someday like to be president of the United States. “It sounded kind of crazy, but it doesn’t sound crazy anymore,” Stanton said.

Political ambition After earning a bachelor’s degree in political science Bernero found work in Lansing, including a job as a legislative aide to Berryman when he became a state senator. He and Berryman became involved with mental-health issues, because Bernero’s brother had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and he had seen firsthand the failings of the system. For several years Bernero tried to gain a political office of his own, losing two runs to become an Ingham County commissioner. He won that seat on his third try in 1990, but he remembers that Election Day more as the day his other brother, Victor, died of AIDS. “We knew he was fading,” he said. “He wanted me to go and make a difference. I felt that I had to go on, which is what he told me to do.” He spent 10 years on the county commission before winning a seat in the state House. After two years he jumped to the state Senate and soon found himself running for mayor of Lansing in a special election in 2003. He would lose that race by 258 votes, but came back two years later and won the job. Now, as he seeks higher office again, critics have consistently accused him of jobhopping and going against his word to serve out his full term as mayor. “It’s not like I put myself in these jobs. I was promoted,” he said. “The public moved me from county commissioner, to state rep to state senator to mayor, and I’m happy to be of service.”

Mayor Bernero In making the case for how he would lead as governor, he often points to his record in Lansing. He said city government is 20 percent smaller, there are more police on the streets, and they haven’t raised taxes. But friends and critics alike say while he has positives to point to, his relationship with the city council has been a problem.

■ Bernero was class president for three years in high school and three years in college. ■ During his senior year of high school, he won the state championship in debate. ■ He is not a natural athlete. He lasted two weeks his freshman year of high school trying out for the football team. His big athletic passion now is racquetball. ■ He met his wife, Teri, at Adrian College on a Saturday night as he was going door-to-door looking for votes to be student body president. She thought he was a nerd. ■ In 2005, Bernero appeared on “20/20” on ABC with John Stossel after introducing a Senate bill to protect workers from being fired for doing legal activities while not at work. “I am open to another way of doing things,” he said. “But I’m not willing to just stop.” Lansing City Council President A’Lynne Robinson said she and Bernero didn’t start off well when she joined the council three years ago — in part because he endorsed her opponent. “We had a number of hiccups initially,” she said. There were blowups at council meetings and in her office with other members present where Bernero let the vulgarities fly as he made his point. “I have seen a certain tempering of that (recently),” she said. Bernero said he comes from a family of passionate people not afraid to express themselves, and that includes the use of expletives. “I guess I’m that same way. I don’t suffer fools lightly,” he said. “I’m always working on my diplomatic skills. I think we can always get better.” Robinson said they’ve since learned to work together, recognizing they both have strong personalities and different styles. She supports his gubernatorial bid, and would take over as mayor, if Bernero is elected governor.

The ‘angry mayor’ With two General Motors plants in Lansing, Bernero said he wasn’t going to wait to see if Congress would help cities like his as the auto industry teetered on the edge in 2008. So when the U.S. Conference of Mayors wouldn’t help — despite his repeated pestering — Bernero spearheaded

an effort to lead a group of mayors from automotive cities from around the country to Washington, D.C. “I didn’t know what we were going to do ... pound on doors, try to be heard, but I knew we had to fight like hell for our way of life,” he said. The most visible aspect of Bernero’s mission were those frequent TV appearances where he fervently defended the unions and automakers. When his wife, Teri, an elementary school principal, brings up the moniker cable news gave her husband, she rolls her eyes. “The whole ‘angry mayor’ label really doesn’t fit him,” she said. “It’s more I think his passion and people take it as anger. He’s really not an angry man.” The passion he shows on television is just as evident when he talks among friends and people he’s meeting for the first time. What you see on cable, is what you get in real life. Without his hands and arms, which become blurs that frame a myriad of facial expressions, he would likely be rendered speechless — they are vital to his animated, fast-paced storytelling. Teri Bernero believes “America’s mayor” is a more fitting title. Though if CNN or Fox News decided to begin calling him that, she’d find out while sitting in front of a computer, rather than the family’s television. “We don’t even get cable at home so half the time I don’t even get to see him,” she said. “I have to watch him on YouTube.”

of Gov. Jennifer Granholm’s temporary home. If he becomes the Democratic nominee and wins in November, it would be a short move for the Bernero family into the mansion. “It’s 10 houses and a park away,” Teri Bernero said. If given the job, Bernero said he would work to instill a positive attitude and a belief that the tough things can get done in Lansing. It’s an attitude he’s worked to instill in his two daughters: Kelly recently graduated from the University of Michigan, and Virginia is attending Central Michigan University. “You’ve got to be in the frame of mind that says, ‘We can do this,’ then you can start to focus on the ‘how,’ ” he said. “But if you don’t believe you can, you’re doomed.” A healthy dose of trust — which has been sorely lacking at the Capitol, is needed as well, he said. “There’s a lot of leveraging and politicking and posturing. Not a lot of relationship building,” Bernero said. “That’s what I’m going to work on. If you have trust, you can get almost anything done.”

As mayor, Bernero sees himself as the guy in the engine room on a big ship; fueling the fire, keeping it going. “But I’m not necessarily confident that the ship is headed in the right direction,” he said. “And if we’re not, we’re not going to arrive at our destination.” And he wants the next governor to put his hands on the wheel. He feels he is the most able-bodied captain among a sea of contenders. But he also worries whether the job of governor will be hands-on enough for him. “Mayors are on the front lines,” he said. On walks around Lansing with his wife, he looks at the governor’s mansion and points out that as mayor, he is responsible for plowing and patrolling the street in front

A closer look at 7th District GOP debate Tuesday’s debate among the three GOP candidates in the 7th Congressional District was mostly civil, and they mostly agreed on the major issues. But there were times during the debate at Jackson Community College between Marvin Carlson, Brian Rooney and Tim Walberg when some claims were made and questions raised that were left unanswered. I took a look at some of those. The issue: Earmarks What was said: “Tim Walberg, for example, he voted to allow a lobster study to promote dog (treats). Of course, that was necessary for Tim to support that to gain support for the earmarks (he brought to the 7th District).” — Carlson The facts: Walberg said he has always pledged never to be blackmailed into supporting an earmark to gain support for one of his. At the debate, Walberg challenged Carlson to show him the lobster vote. On Wednesday, Carlson provided information about the vote and the roll call number. On July 26, 2007, Walberg was one of 328 members of Congress to vote against an amendment to remove the

lobster research earmark. All 15 members of Michigan’s congressional delegation voted the same way Walberg did. The earmark was to be used to conduct research on creating a dog treat made with lobster. When the full bill came to a vote an hour later, which included the lobster research earmark, Walberg voted against it. So, Walberg was for it before he was against it. But last year, when U.S. Rep. Mark Schauer voted against a lobster research earmark before he later voted for the full bill containing the earmark, Walberg criticized Schauer. He said he did that because in a mailer, Schauer was telling voters that he voted against such projects without stating he later voted for them. The issue: President Obama’s push for energy

legislation known as “cap and trade.” What was said: “CMS Energy says that it will cost each and every one of us 30 to 40 percent more in our individual home heating costs.” — Rooney The facts: Consumers spokesman Dan Bishop said no one knows what the final percentage would be because the bill continues to be debated in Congress. “There is a belief that it would raise electric rates,” Bishop said. In a speech to the Grand Rapids Rotary Club in June 2009, then CMS Energy CEO David Joos said the cap and trade proposal would cost Michigan electric customers about $1.2 billion in the first year. “Our best current guess is that in its current form the draft federal legislation would raise electric rates by about 10 percent by the year 2020,” Joos said in that speech. “But there’s plenty of debate still to be had.” Rooney campaign manager Mike Marzano said Wednesday that Rooney was given the 30 percent to 40 percent figure from two Consumers Energy executives, whom he did not want to name. The issue: Drilling for oil in the Great Lakes

What was said: “We shouldn’t drill in the Great Lakes.” — Walberg The facts: Three years ago, the Michigan Democratic Party drilled Walberg for noting that slant directional drilling under the Great Lakes is not allowed. He went on to say the U.S. imports from Canada almost the same amount of oil that Canada takes from under the Great Lakes. “I don’t understand that,” Walberg said then. His point was that state and federal law ban drilling under the Great Lakes, but we are willing to buy oil that Canada gets from under the Great Lakes. In a subsequent interview, Walberg stopped short of advocating for drilling under the Great Lakes but said he thinks it “has to be on the table in an environmentally sound package.” Also, when he was in Congress, Walberg advocated for Great Lakes restoration and conservation. Walberg campaign spokesman Joe Wicks said Walberg personally does not favor drilling, “but if the people of Michigan through their state legislators decide to lift the ban and if it can be done in an environmentally safe way, he’s willing to take a look.”

Republican candidates for county board seat to debate By Holly Klaft — 768-4917

Republican candidates who lined up for a shot at the Jackson County Board of Commissioners 5th District seat will square off in a debate Tuesday. Candidates Julie Alexander, Kim Conant, Mike Raczkowski and Dale Markiewicz are expected to participate in the debate at 6 p.m. in the Columbia Township Hall, 8500 Jefferson Road. The debate comes a week before the Aug. 3 primary election. The winner of the Republican primary for the county’s 5th District seat will face


Zack Schafer, 12, of Jackson wipes his eyes as the name of his stepbrother, Cameron Jacob Russell, is called from a list of 2010 homicide victims added to the James Francis Metink Memorial on Saturday at Sparks Foundation County Park. The memorial is dedicated to victims of homicide in Jackson County. “It’s so hard,� Jerrold Russell, 33, of Jackson said about his son’s death. “I just hope justice will come someday soon. I know it will.� Cameron died at age 2 from injuries suffered when his head forcibly hit a fixed surface.


Have a question? I’ll get the answer

Democrat Janice Sweet-Fairley in November. Ray Snell, chairman of a county Republican Party committee that is coordinating the event, said this is the first time the committee has organized a debate for county board candidates. Snell said many voters likely know little about the candidates, and the debate should provide a good opportunity for 5th District contenders to talk about where they stand on a variety of issues. The audience will have an opportunity to submit questions for candidates. The Republican Party committee also will ask questions. Candidates will have three min-

utes to answer questions. Some candidates for the seat suggested the debate, and Snell said the county Republican Party is considering organizing debates for other local races in the future. Local Republicans were also moved to hold the debate because of the number of candidates running for the 5th District seat, Snell said. The seat opened when Board of Commissioners Vice Chairman Earl Poleski, a Republican, announced he would run for the state House. The 5th District seat covers Columbia, Liberty and Hanover townships and a portion of Spring Arbor Township.

It is possible the Gulf Stream currents could spread the oil into the Atlantic Ocean, meaning the actual oil from the spill could eventually harm wildlife throughout the coastal United States. Above the water, many workers among the cleanup and repair crews have already reported respiratory illnesses as a result of the volatile chemicals in the oil and in the dispersing agents used to break up the oil slick. There also have been reports of residents along the Gulf having similar breathing problems. In what most consider a highly unlikely situation, Time magazine recently quoted a “global risk specialist� who believes the oil spill could create a tsunami or tidal wave.

Here comes the bride … and the antique cars Classic autos made in Jackson are part of celebration By Bill Chapin — 768-4971

Though the priest conducting the wedding at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Saturday advised the bride and groom that marriage “is not about preserving the past,” outside the Jackson church were five specimens of local history with a starring role in the ceremony. Rather than renting a modern limousine to take the wedding party to the reception, Jonell Hasselback used five of her family’s antique automobiles that were manufactured in Jackson in the early 1900s. “It’s a family tradition to have antique cars in the wedding,” Hasselback, 28, said. “They’re fabulous cars and they’re very rare.” Fewer than 50 of the cars produced by the Jackson Automobile Co. are still around today, which means approximately 10 percent of the surviving vehicles were involved in the wedding. They included four Jackson automobiles and one Fuller — another local auto manufacturer that was bought out by Jackson Automobile.


Jaime Zenker and his new bride, Jonell Hasselback, leave St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Jackson after their wedding Saturday. The cars also served as a tribute to Hasselback’s father, Richard Hasselback, who died in October. He collected the vintage automobiles. “He loved Jackson, he was a businessman in Jackson and he fell in love with the Jackson cars,” Hasselback said. Guests cheered as Hasselback; her new husband, Jaime Zenker, 27; and the rest of the wedding party came out of the church and climbed inside the cars. In order to drive the vehicles, the groomsmen had to know how to drive a manual, unsynchronized transmission. “Shifting gears is a little tricky,” said Hasselback’s cousin, Mitchell Dumond, be-

hind the wheel of a blue, 1916 Jackson. “It sometimes pops out of gear,” which means coming to a stop and starting over in first gear. All five vehicles pulled away from the church without any problems about 6 p.m., puttering down Jackson Street with horns honking.


Usher Terry Sievers laughs Saturday as he honks the horn of an antique car while driving the newlyweds and their 20-month-old daughter, Jayna, from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Jackson to the reception in Spring Arbor. Five antique cars produced by the Jackson Automobile Co. were used in the wedding procession.

Search ends for crash victims LUDINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Authorities called off their search Saturday for four people missing since a small plane plunged into Lake Michigan a day earlier while flying a cancer patient to the Mayo Clinic. The pilot, 66-year-old Jerry Freed of Alma, was rescued following the crash Friday morning several miles off the west Michigan coast. After combing the area for 27 hours, rescuers concluded there was little chance anyone else had survived, said Petty Officer Brandon Blackwell of the U.S. Coast Guardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s district headquarters in Cleveland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can resume a search if credible information is received that persons missing may be alive,â&#x20AC;?

Sure enough, another disturbance already was brewing in the Caribbean, although forecasters said it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to strengthen into a tropical storm. In the past 10 years, an average of five named storms have hit the Gulf each hurricane season. This year, two have struck already â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bonnie and Hurricane Alex at the end of June, which delayed cleanup of BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s massive oil spill for a week. ASSOCIATED PRESS

Beaches drawing large crowds GRAND HAVEN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lake Michigan beaches are seeing some of the biggest crowds in years thanks to water temperatures that are the warmest in nearly two decades.

Larger state parks often fill up first, so many beachgoers seek out smaller county and municipal parks. Revenue so far at Ottawa Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoreline parks is up 27 percent over all of 2009. Some of that increased revenue is the result of higher fees.

No-smoking policy can clear the air You’d be hard-pressed to find any hospital that allows smoking inside. Most also refuse to let people light up on their property. So, tell us again, what’s so excessive about Allegiance Health’s new no-smoking rules? The Jackson hospital in November will take a tougher stance on tobacco. Employees will be barred from smoking while on duty. Patients will not be allowed to smoke either. Excessive, Big Brother-style policy? Hardly. Allegiance joins other hospitals that have taken tough stands that serve the good of people that visit — and the good of the community. From a narrow perspective, Allegiance has only one interest: helping patients to recover from disease or injury. Smoking hinders that process, never mind longterm health. It’s asinine to think patients can heal if their hospital stay is clouded by cigarette smoke. It’s not any more logical to let them wander to the sidewalk along E. Michigan Avenue to get their nicotine fix. The image of patients in hospital gowns puffing away outside leads to the second problem that Allegiance is trying to address: its image. Some have complained that only a second-rate hospital would try to limit patients’ freedom like this, yet Allegiance actually comes out ahead with this change. It joins the ranks of progressive-minded hospitals that are showing no tolerance for smoking. It clears the air all around its campus. The community, of course, has only so much concern for the hospital’s image, but local residents should see they benefit. After all, Jackson County has a serious smoking problem. A higher percentage of local residents smoke than the state and national averages. Tobacco contributes considerably to the many health problems that

Issue Allegiance Health to start a zero-tolerance policy for smoking by patients, visitors and employees.

Our Say If a hospital is a place for healing, tobacco has no place. Ideally, this policy will not leave people feeling punished, but help them to kick the habit. traditionally plague this community. You would have to be blind to the cigarette butts that litter local parks and roadsides to not see that, too. Our hope is that Allegiance can present this zerotolerance policy not as a punishment, but as an opportunity. Rather than turn patients away, the hospital system should be able to help them to kick their habit. Similarly, this could be the incentive for employees (and Allegiance is Jackson County’s largest employer) to start smoking-cessation programs that their health system offers. Sure, Allegiance’s doctors would like to see patients eat better and exercise more, but those are lifestyle shifts that can be accomplished more gradually and in stages. Quitting smoking is a direct, singular goal. It’s tremendously difficult, no doubt, but it can be done. The hospital is the right place to take a stand against smoking. If it can happen anywhere, it should start there. This more intensive smoke-free policy can work, but it will depend on the people of Jackson County acknowledging this is the right approach. Let’s hope they will. Let’s hope they will stop smoking, whether it’s with the help of the hospital or not. Let’s get this community healthier — and maybe not as many people will need to spend time at Allegiance in the first place. — Jackson Citizen Patriot

Hot Air Jubilee should have given refunds ADDISON — I would like to express my disappointment with the Hot Air Jubilee on the evening of July 17. We took our family there, paid the $10 per person to get in, only to have no hot air balloon show. The show that was supposed to be at 7 p.m. never happened. We waited until 8:30 and never heard a cancellation or explanation announced. As we were leaving and trying to get a refund of our money, we were told there would be a show later at 9:30 p.m. and one at 7 a.m. the next day. We could not attend either of these and informed the gate workers of this to no avail. I can fully understand if the event was called off due to safety of the balloonists, but a full refund should have been provided. Shame on the organizers of this event for letting this happen. — Nikki McLouth

A mosque near Ground Zero? They want to build a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero. And the outrage burns like jet fuel: Is it decent, is it morally defensible, for developer Sharif el-Gamal of SoHo Properties to build a Muslim worship center called Cordoba House within walking distance of the place where Muslim men, acting from a perverse distortion of their religion, disintegrated thousands of lives? Sally Regenhard, who lost her son in the Sept. 11 attacks, told The New York Times the idea was “sacrilege.” A man named Scott Wheeler produced an ad accusing Muslims of building the mosque to “celebrate” the murders. And then, there is Rabbi Yaakov Thompson. In an opinion piece for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, he accused Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, leader of the group that would worship at the new facility, of taking chutzpah “to a new level,” even though, he added, “I realize that those behind Cordoba House have no

connection to terrorism.” That bears repeating. Though he acknowledges the people behind Cordoba House are not terrorists, the rabbi still demands New York tell them no. In so doing, he blithely legitimizes the idea that you and I are each individually answerable for the crimes of those who merely look like, talk like, or pray like, us. We should not be without sympathy for those who cringe at the notion of a mosque so near Ground Zero. Memory of what happened there is burned into us all. To put a mosque there would

be unavoidably painful and provocative. But we do not get to jettison our national ideals just because they cause pain or provoke. To the contrary, that is the time they are most severely tested and most desperately in need of defending. Frankly, we ought to be troubled by the easy conflation of Islam and terror over the last decade. Yes, we have been helped in that fall by Islamic terrorists. But we have also been helped by that xenophobic strain that was seemingly born in us. How shameful was it that candidate Obama had to keep reassuring voters he wasn’t a Muslim and that no one thought to say the obvious: What if he was? Are Muslims not Americans, too? Is that what we’re saying now? Yes, putting that building in that place might be painful and provocative, but it would also be a reminder of the very values the terrorists sought to kill. And we seem to need that reminder more every day.

This h past 1 the fun

Investors who buy and hold stocks for the long term may think they have little in common with hedge funds that make money betting on short-term market moves. But they should keep an eye on what those fundsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; managers are thinking and doing. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because hedge funds move markets. The most recent monthly TrimTabs/ BarclayHedge survey of 127 hedge fund managers shows that most people who run hedge funds are not bullish on U.S. stocks. And now they are also losing enthusiasm for U.S. Treasury notes and dollars as places to put capital for safekeeping. Most have turned neutral to bearish on both. Part of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making them such a bearish bunch is the bad luck theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had making money with any kind of asset or strategy so far this year. Investors put more money into hedge funds in each of the first five months of the year than they took out. But the funds lost an average of 3.2 percent, their worst performance in two years. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad for them, and it should remind individual investors how tough it is to make money right now.

Wal-Mart to roll out smart tags on men’s basics

CMS Energy to release 2nd-quarter earnings

By Anne D’Innocenzio The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is putting electronic identification tags on men’s clothing like jeans starting Aug. 1 as the world’s largest retailer tries to gain more control of its inventory. But the move is raising eyebrows among privacy experts. The individual garments, which also includes underwear and socks, will have removable smart tags that can be read from a distance by Wal-Mart workers with scanners. In seconds, the worker will be able to know what sizes are missing and will also be able tell what it has on hand in the stock room. Such instant knowledge will allow store clerks to have the right sizes on hand when shoppers need them. The tags work by reflecting a weak radio signal to identify the product. They have long spurred privacy fears as well as visions of stores being able to scan an entire shopping cart of items at one time. Wal-Mart’s goal is to eventually expand the tags to other types of merchandise but company officials say it’s too early to give estimates on how long that will take. “There are so many significant benefits in knowing how to better manage inventory and better serve customers,” said Lorenzo Lopez, a Wal-Mart spokesman. “This will enhance the shopping experience and help us grow our business.” Before the rollout, Wal-Mart and other stores were using the tags, called radio frequency identification tags, only to track pallets or cases of merchandise in their warehouses. But now the tags are jumping onto individual items, a move that some privacy experts describe as frightening.

Eco-friendly footing Grass Lake resident brainchild behind innovative sandals By Ingrid Jacques For the Citizen Patriot

Jimmy Tomczak, 22, is starting his career as an entrepreneur on sure footing — even though his new line of footwear looks a little on the flimsy side. But it’s supposed to. Tomczak recently launched his business, Paper-Feet, which designs sandals from recycled billboard vinyl. The Grass Lake resident said he aims to give customers the feeling of being barefoot while protecting their feet from the elements. Tomczak is FYI selling them For more information on his webabout Paper-Feet, site, www. visit www.paperpaper-feet. or go to its com, for $9 a Facebook page. To pair. He’s still find out more about finding retail the nonprofit that’s stores to carry helping get Jimmy his footwear. Tomczak on his feet, With Pavisit www.sparkper-Feet, Tomczak seeks to run an ecofriendly and ethical company. Much billboard vinyl goes to waste each year — enough to cover the state of Massachusetts, he said. Instead of contributing to additional waste, Tomczak is creating a product with a life of its own. There’s more to his business model than the environmental benefits. Tomczak said he wanted to create a product that would complement a fun, outdoorsy lifestyle. “Living in the moment with affordable adventure,” is how he describes the philosophy behind Paper-Feet. Studying neuroscience as an undergraduate at the University of Michigan, Tomczak plans to graduate in December. His business plan has received some national attention and assistance. In April, Tomczak was accepted into a competitive program called Sparkseed, a nonprofit based in California.


Apple delays release of white iPhone 4 CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — Apple said the white version of the iPhone 4 will not be available until later this year. Apple had originally said the phones would be available in late July. Apple Inc. said the white gadgets have been more difficult to manufacture than expected. It did not say when the white models will be available. The Cupertino, Calif., company said the black models, which went on sale in late June, are not affected.

Buying with goodwill Question: Can you explain what “goodwill” is? — R.S., Greenwood, S.C. Answer: You’ll typically find “goodwill” on a company’s balance sheet if it has acquired another company and paid more than the acquiree’s appraised net worth (approximately its book value). Imagine that Tattoo Advertising (ticker: YOWCH) acquires Glitter Factory (ticker: SPRKL). If Glitter is considered a gem and other companies would love to acquire it, Tattoo Advertising probably can’t get away with paying just what the company is worth. Offering merely that might trigger counterbids, so it pays a premium, which appears on the acquirer’s balance sheet as “goodwill.” Consider that Tattoo’s book value was $100 million before the acquisition. Glitter was calculated to be worth $20 million, but Tattoo offered $25 million in cash. Tattoo’s value won’t change. It will still be worth $100 million, but it wouldn’t have as an asset on its balance sheet that $25 million in cash that it paid. That sum would be replaced by the $20 million value of Glitter as well as a $5 million value designated as goodwill. Just as capital assets such as factory equipment depreciate over time, with their value decreased eventually to zero, goodwill is also

Question: How many dresses do you have available in the store? R.C.: Probably about 200 dresses.

Question: Why would someone choose your bridal store over a big-box store? R.C.: The customization. With the big-box stores, the dresses arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be unique. (Brides) can get very unique here because the lines that I carry arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be everywhere. I also have the custom veils that make it unique.

Question: What designers do you offer? Why did you choose those manufacturers? R.C.: Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Raylia and Mia Solano â&#x20AC;Ś The quality (of those brands) is very, very good for the price.

Tags raise issues about privacy Continued from A14

Wal-Mart, which generated annual revenue of a little more than $400 billion in its latest fiscal year and operates almost 4,000 stores, has huge influence with suppliers. That makes other merchants tend to follow its lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a first piece of a very large and very frightening tracking system,â&#x20AC;? said Katherine Albrecht, director of a group called Consumers

Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering. Albrecht worries that WalMart and others would be able to track movements of customers who in some border states like Michigan and Washington are carrying new driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licenses that contain RFID tags to make it easier for them to cross borders. Albrecht fears that retailers could scan data from such licenses and their purchases and combine that data

with other personal information. She also says that even though the smart tags can be removed from clothing, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be turned off and can be tracked even after you throw them in the garbage, for example. Wal-Mart officials said they are aware of privacy concerns but insist they are taking a â&#x20AC;&#x153;thoughtful and methodical approach.â&#x20AC;? Dan Fogelman, a Wal-Mart spokesman said that the


smart label doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t collect customer information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wal-Mart is using it strictly to manage inventory. The customer is in complete control,â&#x20AC;? he said. To placate privacy concerns, Wal-Mart, which is financing some of the suppliersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; costs, is asking vendors to embed the smart tags in removable labels and not embed them in clothing. Wal-Mart plans to educate customers with the new program through in-store videos and through signs posted in the stores that educate customers about the program.

Sandals could benefit Third World countries Continued from A14

As one of seven Sparkseed finalists, Tomczak received up to $11,000 in funding, personal business coaching and mentoring, free legal services and a four-day networking summit in Silicon Valley â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all in six months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been incredible,â&#x20AC;? Tomczak said. Sparkseed identifies and invests in undergraduate social entrepreneurs. Young people often have great ideas but often lack the means to start up their businesses, said founder Mike Del Ponte, 27. Sparkseed has helped more than 50 student innovators so far. Del Ponte defined social entrepreneurship as â&#x20AC;&#x153;using entrepreneurial practices to address social problems.â&#x20AC;? And he said Paper-Feet fit right into this category. Del Ponte said Tomczakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charisma, energy and innovative ideas will propel him to success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great guy,â&#x20AC;? Del Ponte said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and a natural entrepreneur.â&#x20AC;? Tomczak said he got the idea for Paper-Feet when he needed a tarp to cover an outdoor project he was working on. A friend suggested he get a hold of a sheet of billboard vinyl. This is not Tomczakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first business venture. Previously, he owned a lawn-care business and was a seller on eBay. But he wanted a business that supported a cause. While his initial focus will

be selling footwear within the U.S., Tomczak is already pushing his idea elsewhere. For instance, since the sandals are made fairly simply from cutout vinyl and Velcro, he foresees his product being helpful in Third World countries where people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much extra income but could use protection for their feet. Each pair his company makes is unique, thanks to a wide range of colors used in billboards. On a recent morning, Tomczak was sporting a pair of two-tone blue sandals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They feel pretty good,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good for everyday exploration.â&#x20AC;? And because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re made from vinyl, Paper-Feet are waterproof, which makes them great at the beach. Each pair of sandals comes with a code that allows customers to share their adventures on Tomczakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also employing social media such as Twitter and Facebook to engage his customers and reach out. Following graduation, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning on building his business before attending graduate school for a degree that will combine his interests in health and global social good. So far, Paper-Feet employs three people. The material for the sandals is cut in Ypsilanti, and the sandals are assembled in Ann Arbor and Grass Lake. Tomczak said he hopes to expand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really rewarding,â&#x20AC;? he said.


Netflix to debut in Canada SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Netflix Inc. will make its international debut this fall when the rapidly growing movie subscription service offers video over the Internet in Canada. The expansion announced Monday resolves the mystery of where Netflix will take its first step outside the United States. The company had laid out plans to move beyond the U.S. borders earlier this year without identifying a target market. The question of how much the Canadian service will cost remains unanswered. Netflixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

most popular packages in the U.S. cost $9 to $17 per month. The company, which is based in Los Gatos, Calif., said it would provide more details in October. On Wednesday, it described the effort in Canada as a test to see where and how it should offer streaming-only services in the future. This will mark the first time that Netflix has offered a service confined to delivering video over high-speed Internet connections. All its U.S. subscription packages combine Internet streaming with DVDs delivered through the mail.

Marathon event helps fight cancer By R.J. Walters For the Citizen Patriot

Logan Brasic never faced a shot as hard as osteosarcoma when he was the goalie of the Jackson Northwest soccer team. But he’s also never come up with as big a save as he has in fighting the aggressive bone cancer. From noon Saturday to noon CITIZEN PATRIOT • JAKE MAY today, the 23-year old Brasic Andy Jordan, 22, of Rives Junction defends and his mom, Lori, proved that against Jackson native Adrian Sharp, 33, on families fight cancer together Saturday night during the third annual Soccer through love, and in their case soccer, with the third annual Round the Clock celebration.

Soccer Round the Clock celebration. More than 400 people signed up to play in 18 games, with a goal of raising $5,000 for metastatic pediatric osteosarcoma research to add to the $14,000 the event raised in 2008 and 2009. While the highlight of the event was the first celebrity game — with the likes of former Michigan State athletes T.J. Duckett and Goran Suton and Food Network star Adrien Sharp on hand — each game was a proud moment for the Brasic family two years after Logan

was told there is no evidence of the disease in his body. Saturday’s kickoff game was no exception, as Logan watched his 74-year old grandfather play goalie against a group of family members and high school friends. His grandfather Barry Saltman said he had never played goalie in his life, but someone had to give it a shot. He was beaming after making a late save on someone less than a third his age. “I kept saying I’ve got to make one stop, and the kid who kicked it was nice enough to not

quite kick it hard enough to get through,” he joked. Each goal scored or save made was also a reminder of the money being raised. Each team paid a $250 registration fee, and there were many generous donations as well. Ferris State University student Lauren Drayton got to know Logan a few years ago when she met one of his friends while at the school, and she had an envelope full of hope for the Brasics. “This year I sent out letters to See SOCCER, on B2



Legendary PBA star Williams in Jackson Sr. Open Walter Ray has 47 PBA titles, is seven-time Player of Year By Mike Pryson — 768-4963

Walter Ray Williams, the reigning Professional Bowlers Association Player of the Year and biggest winner in the history of the PBA, will be making his Jackson debut at the PBA Jackson Senior Open, Aug. 21-24 at Airport Lanes. Williams, who the PBA last year ranked No. 2 (behind only Earl Anthony) on its list of the 50 greatest bowlers of all-time, is scheduled to head a strong WILLIAMS field that is also expected to include current Senior Tour Player of the Year leader and two-time 2010 winner Wayne Webb. “I’m looking forward to bowling in Jackson,” Williams said Friday. “I’ve got a great record bowling in Michigan. Hopefully, that can continue.” Williams, in fact, has a great record just about everywhere. He has won a record 47 PBA tournaments, and he set a record earlier this year when he was named PBA Player of the Year for the seventh time in his 28-year PBA career. Williams has at least one tour win in each of the last 17 years. One of his two victories during the 2009-10 regular tour season was at the Motor City Open in Allen Park. Williams turned 50 last October to become eligible for the Senior Tour for the first time this season. He has bowled in two senior events, winning at Mooresville, N.C.,

Others entered in the Jackson tournament include PBA Hall of Famers Johnny Petraglia, a two-time winner in Jackson; Tom Baker, a four-time Senior Player of the Year; Mark Williams, 2010 Senior U.S. Open winner; and Dave Soutar, who won the 1994 senior event in Jackson. Defending Senior Tour Player of the Year and defending PBA Senior Jackson Open winner Ron Mohr and two-time Jackson winner Dale Eagle are also entered. This will be the 18th senior professional bowling tournament at Jackson. Lon Marshall won the inaugural event in 1992. There was no Jackson event in 2007. The Jackson stop will be the final event of the 2010 PBA Senior Tour season. — 789-1250

For the Koprivica family, swimming is more than just a way to cool down in the summertime. It serves as a platform to learn about discipline and commitment. It’s where friendships are formed, skills are developed, and most important, it’s about having fun. Jovanka, at 14 the oldest child of the Koprivica family, has been involved in the Jackson County Aquatic Club for five years. She will enter her sophomore season this fall as a member of the Jackson High School girls swimming team and has used the club as a way to continue learning and improving in the water. Jovanka is joined by her two younger siblings, Milena, 12, and Angelo, 10. Milena will be a seventhgrader at Western Middle School, while Angelo will enter fifth grade at Warner Elementary School. Balancing different practice schedules and work in the evening has proven difficult for Patty Koprivica, who often needed assistance getting her three children in JCAC to the pool.


Milena Koprivica, 12, does the backstroke at the Ella Sharp Park swimming pool during a recent practice. “It gets busy,” Patty Koprivica said. “It’s not always easy, but there’s great camaraderie with the families, and we’ve relied on them to help get the kids back and forth.” See CLUB, on B5

Fans can vote on www. First-round voting ends Monday. Early favorites include Seth Schwindenhammer, Beamer Weems and Sequoyah Stonecipher.

Baseball highlights ■ Jose Guillen, Royals, homered and drove in two runs, Rick Ankiel also had a pair of RBIs and Kansas City pounded spot starter Sergio Mitre during a 7-4 victory over the New York Yankees. Kyle Davies (5-6) served up a pair of home runs to Mark Teixeira and another to Jorge Posada, but otherwise held the hothitting Yankees in check on a sweltering afternoon in the Bronx. Davies survived 51⁄3 innings to pick up a win for the first time since May 28. ■ Jack Cust, Athletics, hit two home runs, Kurt Suzuki added a homer of his own and the Athletics beat the White Sox 10-2. Suzuki, who agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the A’s on Friday, helped Oakland win for the eighth time in 10 games. ■ Ryan Howard, Phillies, hit a bases-loaded triple and Jimmy Rollins had a two-run triple in a seven-run third inning as Philadelphia handed Ubaldo Jimenez one of the worst losses of his career by beating Colorado 10-2.

Dawson, Herzog lead Hall of Fame class COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (NY) — Andre Dawson stared almost in awe as he watched a brief video biography of his playing career, brushing away tears as familiar faces spoke in admiration of the intense man most still call “Hawk.” “When I think back, there are so many things that flash through my mind,” Dawson said. “How did I ever pull it off? I can only say, ‘Wow!’ ” Indeed. Despite 12 knee surgeries, Dawson was an All-Star eight times and managed to become just one of three major league players to hit 400 home runs and steal more than 300 bases (Willie Mays and Barry Bonds are the others). For that and so much more, Dawson will be inducted today into the Baseball Hall of Fame, part of a class that includes former manager Whitey Herzog, umpire Doug Harvey, broadcaster Jon Miller and sports writer Bill Madden. Now 56, Dawson is the 203rd player elected to the Hall of Fame, making it on the ninth try. Many wondered why it took so long. An 11th-round draft pick by the Montreal Expos in 1975, Dawson quickly made it to the big club in September 1976. The following year, Dawson was tabbed by manager Dick Williams as the club’s starting center fielder and immediately excelled in his new role, hitting 19 home runs, driving in 65 runs, and stealing 21 bases to capture National League Rookie of the Year honors. In 1981, Dawson helped lead Montreal to the National League playoffs for the first time and batted .300 in a five-game victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the division series. Dawson’s best chance at making the World Series was then halted by the Dodgers, who took the NLCS in five games. In just over a decade playing center field on the punishing artificial turf in old Olympic Stadium, Dawson’s knees took a beating. They needed to be drained regularly because of swelling, and he decided it was time for a change when he was asked to take a pay cut. “I was a free agent and I didn’t really know what was going to happen,” Dawson said. “The decision that my agent and I made was there really isn’t going to be offers from teams and we’re just going to have to make an offer that won’t be turned down. We felt the only way a team would listen was if we just gave them a contract and let them fill in the blanks.” Chicago Cubs general manager Dallas Green was willing to do that and ended up pulling off one of the great deals in modern baseball. When Dawson offered him a blank one-year deal, Green filled in the numbers: $500,000 for the season, an extra $150,000 if he stayed off the disabled list before the All-Star break, and another $50,000 for making the All-Star team. That was even less than Montreal had offered, but Dawson felt it was “more about pride and principle” and accepted. He responded by hitting 49 home runs, driving in 137 runs, and winning a Gold Glove at his new position — right field on the soft natural grass of Wrigley Field.

Herzog will be just the 19th major league skipper to make the Hall of Fame. He was elected in December by the Veterans Committee. Herzog managed for 18 seasons, 11 with the Cardinals af-

ter stints in Texas, California and Kansas City. He led the Royals to three consecutive playoff appearances in the 1970s and took the Cardinals to the 1982 World Series title. The Cardinals also made

World Series appearances in 1985 and 1987 under Herzog, who finished his managing career in 1990 with a record of 1,279-1,123, a .532 winning percentage. Managing in an era with

several artificial turf fields and distant fences, Herzog’s teams played the game in a classic manner: “Whiteyball” won games with pitching, speed, and defense — not home runs.

one. “The last three years of my life I’ve walked on eggshells, wondering if he’s going to (have no evidence of disease),” she said. “I wanted to do something for all of the other kids who fought the fight and made it through and knew they could go through it again and again and could end up dying.”

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Juan Pablo Montoya is in a familiar spot at Indianapolis Motor Speedway — out front. A year after a late speeding penalty denied him a victory at the Brickyard, he’s hoping it sticks this time. Montoya has steadfastly denied any lingering bitterness from last year’s nearmiss, or any notion that the Brickyard owes him one. Instead, the pole-sitter for today’s race is treating this visit as an entirely new opportunity. “It’s given me a lot, so I don’t complain,” said Montoya, who won the Indianapolis 500 for team owner Chip Ganassi in 2000. So far this weekend, he’s had little to gripe about. His No. 42 Chevrolet was the fastest of 13 cars at an April tire test here, and Montoya paced both of Friday’s practice sessions. Then he turned a lap at 182.278 mph on Saturday morning to take the top starting spot at the Brickyard. Four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson, who won his third Brickyard last season in part because of Montoya’s gaffe, qualified second with a lap at 182.142. Hendrick Motorsports teammate Mark Martin qualified third and was followed by Jamie McMurray, Montoya’s teammate, Ryan Newman and Clint Bowyer, as Chevrolets took the top six qualifying spots. Greg Biffle was the highest qualifying Ford at seventh, Brad Keselowski was the best Dodge at 11th and Martin Truex Jr. led the Toyota effort at 12th. Former Formula One champion Jacques Villeneuve, like Montoya also an Indianapolis 500 winner, qualified for his first Sprint Cup race since 2007 and will start last in the 43-car field. Four drivers failed to make the race: David Gilliland, Casey Mears — nephew of four-time Indy 500 win-

ner Rick Mears — David Stremme and J.J. Yeley. Attention will likely be on Montoya, who has already had a busy week. His wife, Connie, on Monday gave birth to the couple’s third child, a daughter named Manuela, and Thursday was a trip to the emergency room for middle child Paulina. So getting on track provided some relief from the madness, even though this weekend comes with raised expectations. He led 116 laps last year in a bid to become the only driver to win both the IndyCar and NASCAR races at the Brickyard, only to be flagged for speeding on the final pit stop to drop to an 11th-place finish. Everyone expected a strong effort in his return, based solely on the assumption the No. 42 team wants to grab the victory it was denied last year. But Johnson bristled Saturday at the suggestion that Montoya had the field covered last year. “I think we were the best car last year,” the winner argued. “I think Juan and the team did a great job getting up front and were in clean air. Yes, Juan was fast in clean air, but when he got mired in

traffic, he couldn’t go anywhere. Not taking a shot at Juan, but I’m really proud of what we did last year.” Montoya, of course, disagreed. “If you think about it, I remember (Martin) nearly passed him with two laps to go,” Montoya said. “So (Johnson) definitely didn’t have the superior car. I think I had the superior car; I think (Martin) was the second fastest car. (Johnson) probably had the third or fourth fastest car.” The back-and-forth set the stage for what should be a decent show Sunday at one of the most storied tracks in all of automobile racing. Montoya will be trying to give car owner Ganassi a rare “three-peat” in that he already this season won the Daytona 500 with McMurray and the Indianapolis 500 with Dario Franchitti. Ganassi wants the sweep but was cautiously optimistic. “To be honest with you, if we weren’t up near the front (in qualifying), I would have been pretty disappointed because we were up there during the test and in the practice session,” Ganassi said. “So we’ll see what happens.”

Kelly: Arrested players on a short leash for Irish CHICAGO (AP) — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly’s reach goes well beyond the football field. It has to, because his new job demands it. Well-traveled from meeting Fighting Irish alumni and fans across the country, he knows how his past successes and ability to transform programs at Grand Valley State, Central Michigan and Cincinnati have ramped up the expectations for a storied program hoping to be a championship contender again. “I took the job knowing that full well,” Kelly said Saturday before a fundraiser for his foundation that supports breast cancer research. “We know what is expected when it comes to Notre Dame

football. It had a national following from coast-to-coast. ... I understand the enormous task and responsibility of the position or I wouldn’t have taken it. But I don’t think I get caught up every day thinking about it either.” Kelly made it clear Saturday he was not happy with eight of his players who were arrested last weekend for underaged drinking at a party in South Bend. “We’re certainly disappointed that some of our players didn’t make good decisions,” Kelly said. “We hold them accountable for their actions on a day-to-day basis, just like any parent would for a 17- to 21-year-old. So yeah, we take that serious.”

Among the 11 athletes arrested were backup quarterback Nate Montana, wide receivers Robby Toma and Tailer Jones, linebacker Steve Filer, kicker Nick Tausch, cornerback Lo Wood, and offensive linemen Chris Watt and Tate Nichols. Kelly said he met with the team last Sunday to make sure his players knew how he felt about the situation. “I think with a little bit more time with them, I think they are going to make better choices next time around,” he said, adding the players involved would be on short leashes. “I’m thankful it wasn’t an event that was larger in scale that could have been catastrophic,” he said.

Ordonez breaks ankle in loss; out 6 to 8 weeks By Chris Iott Citizen Patriot News Service

DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers outfielder Magglio Ordonez broke his right ankle Saturday night on a play at the plate in the third inning of a 3-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Ordonez, who is hitting .303 with 12 home runs and 59 RBIs, is expected to be out six to eight weeks. Among Tigers players, only Miguel Cabrera has more RBIs than Ordonez. Ordonez, whose ankle has been bothering him since the Blue Jays 3 Cleveland series right after Tigers 2 the All-Star break, was trying Next: Today to score from first on a double vs. Blue Jays, to the wall by Cabrera. Austin 1 p.m. and Jackson scored from second on 6 p.m., FSN the play to cut the deficit to 2-1, but Ordonez was thrown out at home. He stayed on the ground for a short time before being helped off the field. Carlos Guillen left the game in the sixth inning with a right calf strain. There was no immediate word on a timetable for his return. The injuries to Ordonez and Guillen came just five days after Brandon Inge suffered a broken hand when he was hit by a pitch. Inge is expected to miss four to six weeks of action. The injury will hit the Tigers hard but also will have an effect on Ordonez, who was on pace to reach 135 starts and 540 plate appearances this season. If he reached either number — and it appeared certain he would reach both — it would automatically kick in his $15 million contract for next season. But due to the injury, it seems certain that Ordonez will now fall short of those numbers, and the Tigers will have the option of picking up that year at $15 million or letting Ordonez become a free agent. It seems unlikely the Tigers would pay him that much, although they could let him become a free agent and then try to bring him back at a lower number. No matter what, it is likely that the injury will cost Ordonez millions. The Blue Jays scored single runs in the first and third innings off Tigers starter Rick Porcello to take a 2-0 lead before Cabrera’s double made it 2-1. Toronto tacked on a run in the fifth, and the Tigers cut the deficit to 3-2 on a RBI single in the sixth inning by Scott Sizemore, who entered the game in the sixth to replace Guillen. But the Tigers could not manage to push across the tying run and lost the second game of the fourgame series with the Blue Jays. Porcello (4-8) allowed three runs on five hits and four walks in six innings of work. He did not strike out a Blue Jays batter. Shaun Marcum (9-4) gave up two runs on eight hits and one walk in 52⁄3 innings for Toronto. He struck out five.

The Chukars entered play on Saturday night 13-19 and in fourth place in its division, six games back of league-leading Ogden.



Swimmer gives back to club that helped him when he was younger Nathan Hesche has established himself as a successful collegiate swimmer, but that doesn’t stop him from returning to where it all began. Hesche, who will enter his sophomore season this fall on the men’s swimming team at Wayne State University, continues to practice with the Jackson County Aquatic Club in the summer to stay in shape during the offseason. Hesche joined JCAC in seventh grade and made huge strides in the water until graduating from Jackson High School in 2009. “It was a pretty big influence on my swimming career,” Hesche said. “It’s good to go back and see my old coaches and kids I used to swim with. It’s fun to see how much the younger kids have progressed.” Hesche collected four first-team All-American honors as a freshman for the Warriors. He finished seventh in the 100 backstroke and 10th in the 200 backstroke at the NCAA Division II Championships in Canton, Ohio. Meghan McDonald, another former member of the JCAC, served as captain of the Hillsdale College women’s swim team before graduating in 2009. “These kids are products of Jackson swimming, and we’re real proud of that,” Briggs said. “They have done real well in representing the club at the collegiate level.”


Jovanka Koprivica, 14, laughs while taking a break at the Ella Sharp Park swimming pool during practice.

Club offers lessons in competition, fun About the club The JCAC, which was formed in 2002 in affiliation with U.S.A. Swimming, is a parent-run, nonprofit organization open to any child in Jackson County. The yearround club caters to swimmers 6 to 19 years old and has practices during the summer at 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday at the Ella Sharp Park swimming pool. In colder months, the club shifts practices to Jackson High School. The club has about 40 swimmers in various divisions, depending on age and swimming ability to maximize practice time. The requirements to be in the club are simple: Children younger than 8 must be able to swim 25 yards using any stroke, while older swimmers need to swim two out of the three competitive strokes. Teenagers must also establish goals they want to achieve in competitive swimming. “They start with the basic stuff, and I’ll teach them how to do it competitively,” JCAC swimming coach Pat Briggs said. “I want them there because they want to be there, not because they have to be there.” Fees are approximately $25 to $40 a month per child, depending on age group. In addition to practices, cross-training sessions are open during the summer to anyone, from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday at Jackson High School. The program is designed to develop strength and provide a cardiovascular workout that includes lifting weights, running stadium steps and working out on the track. “It’s hard to get up for, but it’s definitely worth it,” Jo-

vanka said of the morning workouts. “The cross-training really helps a lot when you’re in the water.” Jovanka attends regular swim practices, cross-training sessions and is working on becoming a certified lifeguard. She currently teaches swimming lessons and hopes to become a lifeguard by next summer.


Pettersson shoots 10-under 60 Round breaks Canadian Open record, builds four-stroke lead TORONTO (AP) — Carl Pettersson shot a 10-under 60 on Saturday to break the Canadian Open record, missing a 59 when his 30-foot birdie putt from the fringe grazed the left edge on St. George’s difficult par-4 closing hole. “I hit a pretty good 6-iron in there, but the wind sort of got it,” Pettersson said. “And you can’t go past the hole because then you got no chance. And it was actually a difficult putt to get to the hole because it was very steep uphill. “I hit a good putt. I told myself, ‘You cannot leave this short. You got to give this a chance.’ And I hit a solid putt and it was just hovering right on the left side. ... With 6 inches less pace it probably would have gone in.” Pettersson was trying to become the second player this month and fifth overall to shoot a 59 on the PGA Tour. Paul Goydos did it July

8 in the John Deere Classic and Al Geiberger (1977 Memphis Classic), Chip Beck (1991 Las Vegas Invitational) and David Duva (1999 Bob Hope Classic) also have accomplished the feat. In May on the Japan Tour, Ryo Ishikawa shot a 58 — the lowest score ever on a major tour — to win The Crowns. “Obviously, I’m happy with the round, but I would have loved to have seen that putt go in,” said Pettersson, a three-time PGA Tour winner. “But that’s the way it goes. ... It was just a thrill to have a chance to shoot a 59. How many more chances do you have to shoot 59? But I’m thrilled to shoot 60.” Playing in the third group of the day after making the cut by a stroke with opening rounds of 71 and 68, Pettersson had two eagles, seven birdies and a bogey. The former 32-year-old North Carolina State player from

Sweden finished the round at 11 under, a stroke ahead of second-round leaders Tim Clark and Dean Wilson. “I thought I was going to miss the cut yesterday,” Pettersson said. “We got finished with the round and it was right on the borderline. Me and Jay Williamson were actually watching the computer to see if we were going to make the cut, and had a few Canadian beers in there. That settled me down, I think. Maybe that’s what did it.” Pettersson broke the tournament record of 62 set by Leonard Thompson in 1981 at Glen Abbey and matched by five others, including Brent Delahoussaye on Thursday and Kevin Sutherland on Friday. Pettersson tied the tournament record for relation to par of 10 under set by Greg Norman in 1986 when Glen Abbey played to a par of 72.

SPOTLIGHT ONSTUARD • Tournament: Canadian Open • Course: St. George’s G&CC, Toronto. Third Round • Score: 3434—68 (-2) • Total: 6571-68—204 (-6) • Place: T-25 • Behind leader: 9 • Today’s tee time: 11:15 a.m. • Summary: Stuard put together what might have been his most consistent round of the tournament. He had birdies on Nos. 10, 11 and 13 with a bogey on par-4 12th. He parred the last five holes to finish at 2 under.


The competition The JCAC, also known as the Barracudas, hosted the annual Rose City Invitational on June 25-28 at Ella Sharp Park. The invitational drew 42 teams from as far away as Illinois and Texas. The event also serves as JCAC’s only fundraiser of the year and helps pay for equipment and keeps fees low for kids in the program. The summer event schedule for the Barracudas is winding down. Colin Cogan, Andrew Larson, Hannah Larson, Sydney Bishop and Jovanka Koprivica will all compete in the Long Course State Championship from July 29 to Aug. 1 at the Holland Aquatic Center. Cogan also will compete in the final event of the summer Aug. 6-8 at the Central Zone Championships in Pleasant Prairie, Wis. The JCAC will take August off but will return to the water Sept. 7 for the start of the fall season. The club has been an integral part of the Koprivica family’s lives. Instead of looking at swimming as a hassle, Jovanka, Milena and Angelo embrace the opportunity that awaits them each day in the pool. “I really enjoy it, and it’s a lot of hard work,” Jovanka said. “The best part has really been all the friends I’ve made. All my best friends are swimmers, pretty much.”

Coach eager to come back The Jackson County Aquatic Club has been in full swing this summer but something, or rather someone, has been missing. That someone is Pat Briggs. Briggs, who serves as coach of the JCAC with more than 25 years of experience, suffered a brain aneurysm in late May and spent the next three weeks in Ann Arbor in the intensive care unit. After several months of evaluations and physical therapy, Briggs has been given the green light by doctors to return to his coaching duties Thursday at the Long Course State Championship in Holland. “It’s been a long haul, and my wife has really had a lot of patience,” Briggs said. “It was pretty risky business — I just


thank the Lord I made it.” Briggs, who also coaches the Middle School at Parkside team and the Jackson High School girls swim team, said he has relied heavily on his three assistant coaches — Joe Zessin, Tom Rasmussen and Lauren Flynn — to keep things rolling. Briggs has stayed in contact with his coaching staff and made an appearance at the Rose City Invitational but has found it difficult to keep his mind off swimming. Briggs has received frequent updates on his swimmers’ progress and has already begun planning for the upcoming swim season. “The assistants have really pitched in,” Briggs said. “It’s working out, but I’ll be glad to be back.”

Contador-Schleck: Rivals for years to come? PAUILLAC, France (AP) — The images of Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck climbing the famed Col du Tourmalet wheel-to-wheel and fighting to wrest seconds from each other in the time trial have cycling fans anticipating a long rivalry. They are hoping for years of dueling in the Tour de France between the Spaniard and the Luxembourger. “They have great duels. They are the Anquetil-Poulidor, MerckxOcana, Hinault-LeMond, or Nadal-

Federer in tennis, if you like,” Tour director Christian Prudhomme said. “They are almost at the same level, and that promises new, extraordinary duels. We hope to all find ourselves together next year on the Tour for new stages. They have really accomplished an extraordinary Tour from beginning to end.” Contador and Schleck have been fighting for a while. This is the second year in which they are expected to finish first and second in the Tour,

and this time Contador’s lead over Schleck is much diminished. For a day things got a little testy when Schleck had a mechanical problem during a Pyrenees climb, and Contador failed to follow tradition by waiting for Schleck. Contador later apologized, and the two made up. As both are relatively young — Contador is 27 and Schleck 25 — they are likely to be chasing each other for years to come. Schleck said he saw a major im-

provement in his climbing this time — “It was not like last year when Contador was just better than me; in the climbs we were pretty equal,” he said — and even in the time trial, where Contador has always excelled. “Unfortunately it was not enough to beat Alberto, but he was pretty exhausted at the end,” he said. “I think we had a nice fight out there between him and me today. This gives me again more confidence for next year, and I’ll be back to win this.”


Alberto Contador, wearing the overall leader’s yellow jersey, imitates a pistol on the podium Saturday after the 19th stage of the Tour de France.


Contador primed to win title PAUILLAC, France (AP) — Alberto Contador is set to win his third Tour de France title in four years after keeping the yellow jersey Saturday in the next-to-last stage. Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland won the 32-mile individual time trial, but Contador extended his slim lead over Andy Schleck of Luxembourg, who started the 19th stage 8 seconds behind. “I am very moved. ... It was a difficult Tour, and I’m very happy,” Contador said. After donning the yellow jersey, the 27-year-old Spaniard wiped away tears and took a deep breath. His hand trembled as he made his trademark gesture to the crowd — pretending to shoot with his finger. “I think it’s the first Tour that has given me so much emotion, you can’t imagine,” he said. Schleck now trails by 39 seconds and is to finish second to Contador for the second straight year. “Beating Contador is not easy, but I tried everything,” he said. “I am happy, and I’ll come back next year to win.” Barring a wild turn of events, Contador is all but certain to win the race in the 20th and final stage today — a 64-mile ride from Longjumeau to the Champs-Elysees in Paris. The last stage has become largely ceremonial, and any attempt at attacks likely would be quashed by Contador and his Astana teammates. Seven-time champion Lance Armstrong, who is riding in his last Tour and ruled himself out of contention after crashing and struggling in the first day in the Alps in the eighth stage, will be going out with a whimper. The 38-year-old Texan, who once dominated time trials, finished Saturday’s stage in 67th place, 7:05 behind Cancellara. Overall, he is 23rd — 39:20 behind his former teammate and rival Contador. Armstrong returned to a RadioShack team car and left without speaking to reporters after the stage. Riders set off one by one down a starter’s ramp for the race against the clock that set the final positions on the podium. Cancellara, one of the world’s top time-trial riders, outpaced Tony Martin of Germany, who was 17 seconds back in second place. Bert Grabsch of Germany was third, 1 minute, 48 seconds behind the winner. Contador was 35th, 5:43 back, while Schleck finished 44th, 6:14 behind Cancellara. That 31-second difference allowed the Spaniard to widen his overall lead. In the other race categories — assuming the riders and teams finish today — France’s Anthony Charteau has locked up the polka-dot jersey for the race’s best climber; the 25-year-old Schleck will take home the white jersey for being the best young Tour rider for a third straight year and Team RadioShack is set to win the team competition. The last remaining question lingers over the fate of the green jersey, given to the best race sprinter based on a points system, because today’s stage is likely to end in a sprint. Alessandro Petacchi — a 36-year-old Italian — currently looks likely to win that shirt.

Celebs to the rescue By Sue Manning The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — What do you do when a rescue needs rescuing? When you’re in Beverly Hills, you call an interior designer — or several. Then call stars from “Glee,” “NCIS,” “The Dog Whisperer,” and “True Blood.” Add the leading man on Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” dozens of dogs and have a sold-out fashion show. Stars walked with strays on the runway, trying to find homes for the animals. The well dressed wore doggy couture made from the latest fabrics created by the interior designers called Patterns for Paws, who hosted the show on behalf of a struggling animal rescue, The Amanda Foundation. Jenna Ushkowitz of “Glee” ended the show at the Pacific Design Center with her signature “True Colors.” “My animals keep me See PETS, on D2

Back in 1984, Phil Bickel and a Consumers Power co-worker unexpectedly discovered a mutual interest in Dixieland jazz. “We made a list of employee musicians we knew for a band,” Bickel said. “Except a trumpet.” An article in the utility’s employee newspaper recruited a trumpeter. The Jackson French Quarter Dixieland Band (all Consumers employees) was born. Created from coincidence, the band has shared traditional Dixieland jazz with audiences for 26 years. “In our 25th year, I told audiences that we colored our hair silver to honor the milestone,” joked Bickel, a Spring Arbor

Bickel is the sole remaining original band member. He plays trombone and is the band’s business manager. Saxophonist Richard Kulas, a Parma Township resident, is next in band seniority. Dixieland jazz developed in New Orleans in the early 20th century. The music combines

brass band marches, ragtime, blues and other musical styles with wind and rhythm instrument improvisation. A typical Dixieland band has seven musicians: banjo, clarinet, drums, piano, trombone, trumpet and tuba. “We have nine,” Bickel said. “The saxophone isn’t standard, but it works. And we have a vo-

calist.” The band now includes Bickel’s two sons. Paul, of Grass Lake, plays the trumpet. Dan, of Jackson, plays the tuba. They are the band directors at Western and Michigan Center high schools, respectively. Other regulars are banjoist Dean Pelham of Ackerson Lake, See DIXIELAND BAND, on D2


Woman’s clothing size is no one’s business Recently, Average Josephine was asked about how the concept of “The Average Josephine” came to fruition. While many fashionistas have been reading the column from its beginning nearly four years ago, many newcomers might not know how it all began. According to the Los Angeles Times, one-third of American women wear a size 16 or larger. The average woman wears a size 14-16 dress. And yet women who wear these sizes are often sent to what Average Josephine has coined “the fat chicks’ store” in order to get the latest fashions. When Average Josephine talks about this topic, she inevitably gets an email from someone who is appalled that she is not chastising and ridiculing women for not being a size 4. Average Josephine’s response is that this is not a fit-

ness column — and it’s definitely not a slam women column. It’s a column about fashion. A woman’s size is her own business. Average Josephine doesn’t think you should wait until the day you wear a size that’s someone else’s idea of perfect to feel good about yourself. Average Josephine simply thinks that clothing retailers should not make a judgment about what size is plus and what size is not. And if the average woman wears a 14-16, wouldn’t that make her “average” size? Hence the concept of “The Average Josephine.” One store that gets it right is Fashion Bug. Their sizes run from 4 to 26 — and they’re all on the same rack. Average Josephine does not understand why some stores make the big girls shop on one side and the thinner ones on the other. Seems to Average Josephine that it doesn’t make good business sense

to tell half your potential customers that they are “plus size,” and they don’t get to shop with the “regular size” women. Average Josephine wanted to write a column for the everywoman. A column that includes realistic advice on how to wear (or not wear) the latest trends. A column that believes beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. She also wanted to let women know that they don’t have to buy into a lot of the rubbish that is written by the fashion media. A trend that only looks good on 1 percent of the population (i.e. low rise jeans) is silly and Average Josephine believes the fashion industry needs to be called out on it. Average Josephine thinks good style is about living in the present. If that means wearing something with a little stretch to look good today — go for it.

Dixieland Band


Summer fun based on outdoor adventures I just saw the movie “Grownups,” which is about a bunch of guys like me who aren’t, so summer fun is on my mind. Now I don’t want to idealize my youth or suggest that my generation did summer better than kids today, but we did. Sorry, kiddies, it’s true. Your generation is the indoor generation. My generation, and every generation before it, was an outdoor generation. Now, that might have been because we were obnoxious little brats and our moms didn’t want us inside wrecking the house when there was so much outside that we could wreck, but it’s still true. Some of it’s not your fault, of course. It’s a more dangerous, fussier, tenser world than the one I grew up in. I thought nothing of leaving the house in the morning on my bike and not returning until supper. Do that these days and they’ll have an amber alert out on you. But that doesn’t let you off the hook completely. You could put down your cell phones and iPods for a minute or two and see if there’s a life out there beyond electronics. Trust me, there is. Summer then: Circle block, grab friends for a pickup game of baseball. Summer now: Jump online, play kids in New Jersey or South Africa in a pickup game of “Modern Warfare 2.” Summer then: Dam a creek just for the heck of it. Summer now: Begin damming creek until DNR gets wind of it and issues a restraining order. Summer then: Take off shirt in June, not put it on again until September. Summer now: Put on SPF 150 in June, not take it off until September. Summer then: Turn on AM radio and blare tunes that everybody knew. Summer now: Put in earbuds and blare tunes just for yourself off your salsa rap


changes, but still has fun

Andrew Heller Opinion columnist

dance mix iTunes playlist. Summer then: Leave house in morning with no plans whatsoever, return at dinnertime after a dozen self-made adventures. Summer now: Go to daycare for hours of structured play or attend classes arranged by helicopter parents who can’t stand the thought of an unscheduled moment. Summer then: Paint house because your dad said so. Summer now: Chores? We don’t do no steenkin’ chores! Summer then: Blow stuff up with firecrackers. Summer now: Blow stuff up with firecrackers then get arrested on charges of domestic terrorism. Summer then: Spend hours perfecting the fine arts of armpit farts and grass whistling. Summer now: Spend hours perfecting windmill guitar stroke on “Rock Band II.” Summer then: Gather all the neighborhood kids for a game of kick the can. Summer now: Neighborhood kids? Who are these neighborhood kids of whom you speak? Summer then: Make a stand and sit there all day at the end of your driveway peddling Dixie Cups of lemonade for 25 cents per, netting an amazing $4.25, most of that from your mom.

grown from about 12 songs to 150. “We play ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’ and ‘Bill Bailey’ in nearly every performance,” he said. The band performs at private birthday and anniversary celebrations, reunions, weddings, funerals, for senior citizen groups, and for public events such as their Aug. 9 performance at the Jackson County Fair. They are United Way regulars and they play about once a week. “More than once a

week gets to be too much like work,” Phil Bickel said. “But during Mardi Gras, we do play more frequently.” They’re booked for Mardi Gras 2011. The band performs from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula into northern Ohio, and from Lake Michigan to Lake Erie. One of its more memorable gigs was a New Year’s Eve in a casino. They performed in an empty dining room after the revelers ate dinner and left the room to hit the slots.

The band’s standard fee in the Jackson area is $250 for one hour, and $350 for two hours. They reduce their fee for many nonprofit and private functions. They have made three CDs. Two feature Dixieland jazz and one features songs of faith. For the band, performing is largely about fun. “I tell audiences that if they have half as much fun as we do, we’re having twice as much fun as they are,” Phil Bickel said.

sane. They are my life,” NCIS’s tattooed Pauley Perrette said on the red carpet made of green grass, holding a puppy in need of adopting. Perrette spent 10 years volunteering for The Amanda Foundation, a 34year-old animal rescue that has seen private donations drop 70 percent this year. The night’s profits will all go to the rescue, which saves dogs and cats in their last hours from the county’s 28 shelters. Her escort on the runway was a three-legged terrier mix named Astaire, who needs a home. “Every single person on our show has animals and pretty much all of them are rescues,” she said. “We are all animal fanatics.” Nigel Lythgoe, an “American Idol” pioneer and producer, executive producer and judge for “So You Think You Can Dance,” was the emcee. “Literally, in the last three weeks, I adopted two dogs,”




‘Two-fisted art attack’ gets exhibit By Catherine Tsai The Associated Press

ARVADA, Colo. — Billed as the twofisted art attack, painter Denny Dent made his name creating quick-draw portraits to live music, sometimes before thousands of concertgoers. Using as many as three brushes in each hand, Dent splashed paint over sprawling canvases and himself, with subjects ranging from Jimi Hendrix to John Lennon to President Bill Clinton. Dent was more a performance artist than studio painter, and after his death in 2004 at age 55, people wanting to view his work usually had to turn to YouTube. Now the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities, not far from where Dent lived in Denver, is showing his first career retrospective. “Two-Fisted Art Attack: Denny Dent Retrospective” runs through Aug. 29. Among those who paint to live music, Dent is a Harry Houdini among David Blaines and David Copperfields, said Keith “Scramble” Campbell, guest curator for the exhibit and a painter who works during live concerts. “This guy is the pioneer of this art

NEGAUNEE TOWNSHIP — The Michigan Iron Industry Museum is offering a 3-D look at the Upper Peninsula from a century ago. Photo historian Jack Deo presents “Superior Views: A 3-D Look into the Past” on Tuesday at the museum in Marquette County’s Negaunee Township. The program features the work of Marquette’s Brainard F. Childs, who documented the Upper Peninsula’s landscape with stereo photographs. Those old photos recently were digitized for 3-D projection. The event is part of a seven-week lecture series that runs through Aug. 17 that’s aimed at offering a wide-ranging glimpse into the mining history of the Upper Peninsula. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged. For details, go to www.

Yellowstone reopens Biscuit Basin area YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — One of Yellowstone National Park’s famous geyser basins is open to visitors again. The Biscuit Basin area opened to visitors for the first time this season on July 15. The basin is three miles north of Old Faithful. The area had been closed the past 14 weeks while workers replaced the boardwalk. National Park Service employees and members of the Youth Conservation Corps replaced or built more than 2,400 feet of trail. Federal money paid for the $121,000 project. — The Associated Press


Late performance artist Denny Dent paints a portrait of John Lennon at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland in September 1999. form,” Campbell said. That includes using the whole body to paint. Dent was a high school dropout who grew up without much money

in Oakland, Calif. He got caught up in the “craziness” of the 1960s and was getting by with short-lived jobs in commercial art when a Las Vegas radio station planned a 1981 vigil on the anniversary of John Lennon’s death, said Dent’s widow, Ali Christine Flores-Dent. He asked if he could paint at the vigil as he would often do while hanging out with friends — on the spot, music playing, ambidextrously, talking to people. The station agreed and called him the “two-fisted art attack,” a name that stuck. Dent painted two portraits of Lennon, shouting about what Lennon and his message of peace meant to him. A promoter saw the audience’s response and helped Dent launch a career that had him opening for such artists as the B-52s and Miles Davis, performing in front of about 300,000 people at Woodstock in 1994, painting Clinton’s portrait on the White House lawn. Dent performed shows around the world, some earning him about $20,000. His artwork could sell for around $40,000. He died a week before his 56th birthday from a heart attack.

Study finds cause of pain By Jeannine Stein MCT News Service

Habitual high-heel wearers, your attention, please. You know that feeling you get when you first slip off those impossibly high stilettos (the feeling after relief)? That tightness in your Achilles’ tendons as feet assume a natural position, with heels on the floor? Researchers think they may know the reason for that. A new study in the Journal of Experimental Biology tried to determine why women feel that tautness in the backs of their ankles after wearing high heels for long periods of time. Researchers focused on 11 women who were regular high-heel wearers, and a control group of nine women whose footwear consisted of flats. The women’s calf muscle size was measured via MRI, but no differences were noted, although researchers thought that might be the culprit. “We were expecting slightly smaller muscle volumes in the highheel wearers because we thought that if the muscle is in a shortened position then you are loading it less and the muscle volume should be smaller,” one of the study’s authors, Marco Narici of Manchester Metropolitan University in the United Kingdom, said in a news release. Instead, ultrasound tests found that the muscle fiber length in the highheel wearers was 13 percent shorter than in the control group. MRI scans also revealed that the Achilles’ tendons in the high-heel-wearing women were thicker and stiffer than in the flats wearers. That may have compensated for the shortened muscle fibers while allowing calf muscles to function at their best while walking. Yet this thickening also caused some pain when the women changed from high heels to walking on flat feet. Narici says he doesn’t think women need to give up their sky-high heels, but he does recommend some stretching exercises to avoid those aches.

Fashionable shorts find way to some workplaces By Sara Glassman


MCT News Service

ow can you look stylish when it’s 88 degrees and humid and you’re heading for the office? For Melissa Bohlig, a press specialist at Roepke Public Relations in Minneapolis, the answer is short and sweet: shorts. Bohlig wears Bermudas or looser shorts that hit her at midthigh at least a couple times a week. On a recent Friday, nearly her entire office donned them. Bohlig said the look is de rigueur for her job, which requires her to meet with editors at fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar. While shorts first hit runways a few years ago, every length from hot pants to Bermudas was part of spring and summer collections from Michael Kors, Charlotte Ronson, Derek Lam, Stella McCartney and Carolina Herrera. Stylish shorts have proven very popular among working women in New York City, where stores have been stocking up. According to Women’s Wear Daily, “Retailers report they’re experiencing double-digit increases in the shorts category.” Phillip Lim is showing shorts as part of his fall collections, layered over hosiery. “Shorts are iconic of a trend of taking something casual and dressing it up,” said Gregg Andrews, the Chicago-based fashion director of Nordstrom. He

not embraced by the corporate world. According to representatives of Minnesota-based Target, Carlson Companies and HealthPartners, shorts are not considered acceptable attire. Target, for example, requires business formal or red and khaki Monday through Thursday and business casual on Friday. “Shorts aren’t allowed anytime in headquarters,” said Erika Svingen, a company spokeswoman. The policy is similar at HealthPartners in Minneapolis. “As much as I would love to wear shorts in the office, they are not part of the dress code at HealthPartners,” said spokeswoman Amy von Walter, via e-mail. “Given that our organization includes patient-care areas, our policy tends to be fairly conservative.” Smaller companies in creative fields seem less restrained. Shorts are allowed at Roepke, but they must have at least a 9inch inseam and be worn with flat shoes or a wedge heel, said owner Katherine Roepke. And Bohlig said she wears shorts on days when she’s primarily in the office. She has worn them to a client meeting once, with the design firm Duffy & Partners. “The client is casual, very creative — and they wear shorts,” she said. Kara Kurth is a designer at, a stationery etailer, where even “pajamas or workout clothes” are acceptable, said founder Erin Newkirk. And Kurth said she thinks being allowed to wear shorts gives her an edge. “I really like it, because if I’m inspired, my work will be, too,” she said.


Real men don’t need made-up words for style By Adam Tschorn MCT News Service

Recently I received an e-mail that read, in part: “(W)hether you have a brother, a buddy, or a boyfriend, don’t let your man friend leave home without his man tank, this summer’s essential ... THE MANK.”

Let’s set aside the debate over whether the tank can be considered any more essential to the man of 2010 than the man of 1810. I take issue with the stank of “mank.” I get the idea behind it. The world of fashion and style has a long history of employing such portmanteau words (a term describing these mashed-up words

first employed by a master of the art, author Lewis Carroll), and in many cases it does the job perfectly. We can easily deduce that a “skort” is a hybrid between a skirt and a pair of shorts, and the word “tankini” efficiently conjures up the image of bikini bathing suit with a tank top. But it’s linguistically lazy to

simply “manglicize” (oops, see?) a word to show it’s a male version or man-appropriate, and it can lead to confusion. One of the all-time offenders (of which I’ve been guilty) is “murse.” Depending on the situation, it can mean either “man purse” or “male nurse” — not a misunderstanding you want in an emergency.

So can we all agree to beat our prefixes into plowshares, drop the “man-” act (which may sound like, but is totally different from the Mann Act) and step away from the lexicographical slippery slope? Otherwise it’s going to start making me angry. And trust me, you won’t like me when I’m “mangry.”



Keeping up with Plant

Ice-T accused of driving offense

SACRAMENTO, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger last week appointed actress Geena Davis to a California commission established to promote womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equality. Schwarzenegger named the 54-year-old actress to the Commission on DAVIS the Status of Women. The nonpartisan panel advocates for women and girls in areas such as education and access to health care. Davis, a Democrat, has worked off screen to reduce gender stereotyping. She is the founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in the Media and is a partner with United Nations Development Fund for Women. The appointment lasts four years and requires Senate confirmation. The 17 commissioners receive a $100 per diem.

Singer uses energy, spontaneity on stage

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The bisque is back. The soup stand that inspired the Soup Nazi episode on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seinfeldâ&#x20AC;? reopened in midtown Manhattan last week, six years after its famously brusque owner, Al Yeganeh, shut it down and licensed his recipes to a franchising company. More than 100 people were waiting in line for the reopening SEINFELD of the tiny storefront, including a few regulars who remembered the days when Yeganeh ladled broth and imposed discipline from behind the cramped counter. Much about the shop was the same as in the days before â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seinfeldâ&#x20AC;? made the place famous, including its strict ordering rules, now posted in nine languages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;THE LINE MUST BE KEPT MOVING. Pick the soup you want! Have your money ready! Move to the extreme left after ordering!â&#x20AC;? But some things are different. Yeganeh neither owns nor operates the store now. Like other Original SoupMan stores around the country, it is a franchise.

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; New York City police say they have arrested rapper-actor Ice-T on accusations of driving with a suspended license. Police say the entertainer was driving a ICE-T 2009 Cadillac near West 40th Street and 11th Avenue last week when officers stopped him for not wearing a seat belt.

Plant offered a generous helping of Zeppelin favorites on the tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first two dates in Memphis, Tenn., and Little Rock. The concerts featured a song each for Miller and Griffin, and Plant has plans to include more songs by the band, which also includes multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott, bassist Byron House and drummer Marco Giovino. He wants a revue feel for the tour, his first headlining performances since the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Raising Sandâ&#x20AC;? tour wrapped 15 months ago. This time out he enlisted Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help and put together the band on the guitaristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation. Griffin was a late addition, but one who adds important depth to the new songs on the album and to old favorites on stage. Plant said the two singers have a special connection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can feel it without a word spoken and we sing together like crazy,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; thing.

Strategies Tell husband text conversations with woman need to stop out to keep kids slim MCT News Sevice

A childhood obesity program recently tested by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina is being rolled out nationwide by the insurers’ sister firms, the company said last week. The approach provides doctors with strategies for talking with kids about maintaining a healthy weight and getting adequate exercise. It’s been used in North Carolina among many of the insurer’s doctors since 2007 as part of a broader effort by the state’s largest insurer to tackle rising obesity rates. At one time, Type 2 diabetes almost always occurred later in life. But that’s changed. In recent years, Type 2 diabetes has increasingly been diagnosed in children. Nationally, 4 in 1,000 children have diabetes, and nearly a third of those cases are Type 2, according to an annual health survey. For an insurer such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, the mounting health problems associated with obesity are a huge expense. An economic analysis by RTI International put the medical costs of obesity nationwide at $147 billion a year — much of which includes the hospitalizations, treatments and therapies that insurance companies cover. “When you look at a permember, per-month basis, adults who are obese are 32 percent more expensive than a non-obese person,” said Dr. Don Bradley, chief medical officer at the insurer. “An overweight person is 16 percent more expensive. When you consider that two-thirds of the population is either overweight or obese, that’s quite a lot.” To tackle the problem, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina helped develop a tool kit for doctors to launch interventions with kids and their parents. The approach offers suggestions about healthy diets, regular exercise and less computer, video game and TV time. Dr. Edie Bernosky, a pediatrician from Chapel Hill who helped pilot the insurance company’s effort, said the information in the tool kits helps put the problem in perspective. She said many children and parents are unaware of the serious health consequences of obesity — and the likelihood of severe problems occurring earlier in life. The Blue Cross program provides doctors with an accessible definition of the body mass index, for example, to help frame the scope of the problem for children and their parents. The BMI is a calculation of weight and height, with anything over 25 considered overweight. “We’re talking about the BMI as almost a vital sign,” Bernosky said. “When a child’s BMI is really high, parents are aware of cardiovascular disease in adulthood and adult onset diabetes, but they don’t make that connection of an elevated BMI in childhood leading to the same outcomes.” She said it’s important to make those connections, and to change behaviors. “This is a national epidemic, and what we need to do is take measures and strategies from multiple directions,” Bernosky said, noting that healthy foods should be available and affordable, and exercise should be promoted at schools and elsewhere.

Dear Annie: My 50year-old husband and I have been married for 24 years. “Fred” is constantly texting a 35-year-old divorced woman he used to work with. He insists they are only friends who like to keep in touch. They start texting before 6 a.m. and continue until bedtime. Today, they exchanged 373 text messages. I don’t know how either of them gets any work done. We have had several conversations about the amount of contact he has with this former coworker, but he just doesn’t get it, which means it isn’t going to stop anytime soon. Even our kids keep asking who Dad is texting all the time. I don’t believe he has physically cheated on me, but I’m not sure how long this “friendship” can continue before it grows into a full-blown affair. Maybe if he were to see this in black and white it would finally sink in that he’s on dangerous ground. It may only be a

AT THE LIBRARY For entertainment, and to keep out of trouble, dip into “How to Cheat at Everything: A Con Man Reveals the Secrets of the Esoteric Trade of Cheating, Scams, and Hustles” by Simon Lovell. This book will instill a healthy caution — or maybe suspicion — about anything that seems too good to be true. The reality of addiction and its insidious power is tragically portrayed in “Gripped by Gambling” by Marilyn Lancelot. This loving grandma embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from her employer, telling herself she would pay it back with her winnings. The addictive quality of gambling is again portrayed in “Hats & Eyeglasses: A Family Love Affair with Gambling” by Martha Frankel. This autobiography brutally describes the feeling and behavior of an online gambling addiction. One element both books have in common is the ease of slipping into debt through online gambling. Finally, in these days after Bernie Madoff, the book How to Smell a Rat: The Five Signs of Financial Fraud by Kenneth L. Fisher is an essential read. Many potential frauds will be avoided simply by looking through this material, much less if someone takes a little time to investigate the opportunities that come their way. — JDL staff

Former country boy brings readers to farm You must’ve driven by the lot six or seven times before you stopped, before the gleam of that machine drove you in for a looksee. You don’t need a tractor but sometimes life is all about want, not need. And you want that tractor. Its engine is guaranteed to start in cold weather and the PTO has exactly what you require for farm work. It’s got enough horsepower, too, and there’s a deluxe leather seat in the air-conditioned the cab. Wouldn’t Great-Grandpa be surprised? Probably, since he got his horsepower in the form of horseflesh, as you’ll see in the new book “Horse-Drawn Days: A Century of Farming with Horses” by Jerry Apps. Long before that gleaming tractor was a gleam of an idea, horses were the main mode of transportation, plow-pulling, wagon-hauling, and snowclearing. Everybody, town and country alike, had or used a horse or three to do heavy work. It wasn’t always that way. Oxen were the original “team”, but farmers learned that horses were quicker than a pair of ponderously-moving bovines – even though the oxen ate less and could be eaten themselves. Mules, too, were sometimes found behind a plow, but horses were much more popular. In 1915 — before cars took over the roads — nearly a million horses lived and worked in Wisconsin alone. Apps says that in that year, 94 percent of Wisconsin farms utilized horses. Despite that horses lightened a farmer’s workload, just getting

a team ready was a chore. Harnessing itself took several careful steps before the real work started. Then a farmer could look forward to a long, dusty day walking or pitching, loading or unloading, hauling and stacking. And woe to the farmer whose horses spooked… But it wasn’t all bad; in fact, there are reasons why oldtimers smile wistfully at the memory of farming with real horsepower. Horses were pets, friends, family members, partners, and helpmates, as well as the occasional GPS for a tired farmer on his way home. They were wonderfully, cheaply fuelefficient: hay in, fertilizer out. Unlike that tractor you’re drooling over, a horse always started in cold weather. He never needed expensive gas or oil, he ran quietly without a computer chip, and he never “broke down” when you needed him the most. Know somebody who loved to horse around in the fields? Do you love the smell of horse and old leather? Then this book will be a pleasure. Author Jerry Apps, himself a former farm kid, can tell a story like nobody else – and he does

it here aplenty. Using personal stories, old photos, magazine ads from bygone days, trivia, and recollections from former farmers, Apps practically chats with his readers in this book. That, and the easy images Apps evokes, gives “Horse-Drawn Days” the comfortable feel of a

neighborly visit or an across-thefence jaw-session. For re-creationists, back-tonature sorts, horse lovers, former farmers, or anybody who longs a time when life was slower, “Horse-Drawn Days” is a perfect read. If you’ve got any horse sense at all, you won’t miss it.


REVIEWS By Susan Salter Reynolds MCT News Service

If it is true that women are the heart and soul of a culture, their suffering indicates a sick one. There is a reason why books such as “The Diary of Anne Frank” or “Zlata’s Diary” are used to show the imperative of transformation, the cruelty of certain regimes. Stories, like those reviewed this week, form a critical mass; women and girls gather courage from them, and, our ear, our understanding, is educated and expanded in the process.

Price war, iPad rapidly reshaping market By Jeffry Bartash MCT News Service

The e-book market created by the Kindle just a few years ago already is undergoing a shakeup — and it soon could see a shakeout. Just six months ago, at least a dozen companies were preparing to launch, or had already launched, new e-readers in the U.S. to challenge Amazon and grab a piece of a small but rapidly growing pie. Now, it appears several e-readers will never make it to the market while others could die a quick death. Just last month, for example, iRex Technologies filed for bankruptcy protection owing to poor sales of its e-reader. Another company, Plastic Logic, delayed the release of its own device called the Que, casting doubt on whether it will ever see the light of day. What’s going on? Simple. Prices of e-readers have fallen faster and further than anyone expected. Amazon, for instance, has slashed the price of the popular Kindle to $189 from $359 just one year earlier. The catalyst for the

sudden decline can be directly tied to two companies — the big bookseller Barnes & Noble and the computer and electronics giant Apple Inc. Late last year Barnes & Noble introduced its own e-reader, the Nook, for $259, and it quickly sold out. The Nook had the added advantage of being available in physical stores, which allowed shoppers to actually see and handle the device. Until its recent launch with Target, the Kindle has only been available on the Amazon Web site. Last month, Barnes & Noble cut the price of the Nook to $199, and Amazon responded the same day by dropping the Kindle to $189. While Barnes & Noble has pushed prices lower, the iPad has given consumers another option while setting a ceiling on how much manufacturers of e-readers can charge. At just 1 1/2 pounds, the iPad is the first truly functional tablet computer. It can perform just like a laptop, but it’s much thinner and lighter and costs only $499 — just $100 more than the original Kindle. The revolutionary nature of the iPad — never mind the pricing — immediately cast doubt on the future of
