For historic war re-enactors, the authenticity of the uniform is critical. So much so that many reenactors spend thousands of dollars to compile their outfits, paying attention to every last detail, even the belt buckles and buttons. The Times caught up with two Civil War enthusiasts who will be among the nearly 600 reenactors at this weekend’s River of Time Living History Encampment in Bay City to ask them about their uniforms.

BAY CITY — To crack down on prescription drug abuse, law enforcement officials in Bay County will conduct an event Saturday to collect old, unused and unwanted pills. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., pills can be dropped off at the Bay County Law Enforcement Center, 501 Third St., List of drop-off and the Michigan State Police collection sites, A2 Bay City Post, 405 N. Euclid Ave. and in Room N-101 at Delta College, 1961 Delta Road in Frankenlust Township. The effort, dubbed the Controlled Substance Take-Back Initiative, is a coalition between the Bay City Police Department, Bay County Sheriff’s Office, Michigan State Police and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. Sheriff John E. Miller said disposJohn E. Miller ing of unneeded medication is an important measure in curtailing the increasing rate of prescription drug abuse. “Young people raid the medicine cabinets of their parents and grandparents for these drugs,” the sheriff said. “A lot of times they can be injured as well as getting high, sometimes to the point of expiring from taking the drugs. If not being used, it’s best they’re destroyed to keep from getting into our young people’s hands.” Liquid medications and syringes will not be accepted as part of Saturday’s collection. Joel Strasz, services manager for the Bay County Health Department’s Environmental Health Division, said proper disposal of pills is important. “A lot of times, people throw old prescriptions down the toilet and the chemicals … cannot be treated and can often find their way back into the water table,” Strasz said.

BANGOR TWP. — Camryn Werner has been through a lot during her first five months of life. Camryn, the daughter of Jeff and Beth Werner of Auburn, was born with esophageal atresia, a rare condition in which an infant’s esophagus is not connected to the stomach. One in 4,500 infants suffers from the condition, according to Jeff Werner, who works as an information technology employee for Booth Mid-Michigan — the company that publishes The Bay City Times, The Saginaw News and The Flint Journal.

yards away, we’re usually happy,” he said. Started in 1990, River of Time is an annual weekend festival in which re-enactors dress in authentic period clothing, live in tents and showcase life as it was from historic American eras. The festival includes historic artifacts and live musical performances. Following a day of visits from area school children, the opening ceremony for this year’s event begins at 7 p.m. Friday. It serves as the official kickoff to a weekend of re-enactments from major U.S. military efforts, including the Civil War and both World wars. Jan Rau, event chairwoman, said the number of re-enactors planning to participate this year is up from the typical 400 who turn out. “It’s a great way to learn about history because you can actually look and touch what you would otherwise just read about,” she said. Saturday offers a full slate

DRUGS Collections will take place at several housing complexes

“On the one hand, we don’t want old prescriptions just laying around because of the potential for abuse by the non-prescribed population. On the other hand, we Thomas Pletzke can’t follow the old suggestion to just thrown them down the toilet. “The best thing we can do, and the legal remedy for this, is to have community collections.” Strasz said several studies have shown the negative effect flushed drugs have on an ecosystem. “Analysis of surface water in certain areas often pick up traces of

possibility of somebody abusing them,” Miller added. As part of Saturday’s collection, officers from the Bay City Police Department will visit several area housing complexes to collect pills from residents. “We’re actually going to high rises for people who don’t have the ability to bring (their pills) down here, to give them an avenue for personal service,” said Bay City police Deputy Chief Thomas Pletzke. Pletzke said he hopes Saturday’s effort will be the first of an annual or biannual event. Pills can be turned in anonymously and with no questions asked, according to law enforcement officials. Medications do not need to be in their original containers.

Drop-off and collection sites Unused and unwanted medications can be dropped off from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the following locations: • Bay County Law Enforcement Center, 501 Third St. • Michigan State Police Bay City Post, 405 N. Euclid Ave. • Delta College, Room N-101, 1961 Delta Road, Frankenlust Township Bay City Police officers also will visit the following sites to pick up medications:

method still will be able to purchase a recreation passport sticker — also placed on license plates — at the state parks, according to Carl Lindell, Bay City district supervisor for the DNRE. The cost for the coming year — Oct. 1, 2010 through Sept. 30, 2011 — for permits purchased at the state parks will be $10. The cost the following year will be $15 and the third year will be $20. Lindell said the increase in future years is to encourage people to purchase their passports through the Secretary of State. In the first year of the program, a transition period will be built in to accommodate the period between Oct. 1 and the date when residents’ plates come up for renewal. This period will allow visitors free access to the parks before they renew their tabs. For example, if your tabs expire in January but you want to visit a park in December, you will be able to enter the park for free at that time. After January, however, you will need a recreation passport to enter. The program is an attempt to raise money for the cash-strapped park system, which hasn’t received tax dollars since 2004. The state hopes the new program, which became law earlier this year, will bring in $12 million annually to maintain the 98 state parks and recreation areas.

BENEFIT Family has been squeezed financially by high cost of baby daughter’s treatment Bangor Township Schools and one of Beth Werner’s colleagues, from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday at John Glenn High School, 3201 E. Kiesel Road in Bangor Township. The dinner is called “A Touch of Italy” with a menu including spaghetti with meatballs, baked ziti with Italian sausage, veggie lasagna, pizza, salad, breadsticks and dessert. Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for children. Takeouts are available. The event includes live music, a silent auction and a 50-50 raffle. DJs from Impact Sound Entertainment will provide music from noon to 3 p.m., when the band Jedi Mind Trip takes the stage. The auction will take place from noon to 4:30 p.m. Items include a poster autographed by Detroit Red

Wings legend Gordie Howe and gift certificates to local businesses. Beth Werner said she and her family have been “overwhelmed” by the outpouring of support from the community. “The support that we’ve received from back home has exceed my expectations, by far,” she said. “The amount of cards we’ve received, e-mails, phone calls, text messages and just from what I’ve been hearing how the community is reacting, it has really, really helped us to get through this. “We just want people to know how tough our little girl is and everything she’s been through. She’s a fighter.” Help also has come from those living in the Boston area.

The Werners have been afforded a guest house by the First Baptist Church of Weston, located in a suburb of Boston. A member of the church also accepted the Werners’ other daughter, Brooklyn, 2, into her nursery school program free of charge. Despite everything she’s been through, Camryn is in good spirits, Beth Werner said. “She’s progressing well,” Beth Werner said. “It’s just a really slow process. Her vitals are great and she laughs a lot. “She does things you’d expect of a five-and-a-halfmonth-old baby.” To help the Werners, send donations in the form of a check to “Camryn's Fund,” First Baptist Church of Weston, 657 Boston Post Road, Weston, MA 02493.

because she’s never been able to eat like most other people, instead relying on a feeding tube. Jeff Werner said he and Beth, a teacher at Christa McAuliffe Middle School in Bangor Township, chose to go to Boston after University of Michigan doctors suggested pulling the infant’s stomach up to her neck and cutting off her esophagus completely — a strategy the couple was not comfortable with. “It’s been the most stressful thing I’ve ever been through. But it’s something you’ve got to do,” Jeff Werner said. “And if the best doctor for it was in Cambodia, that’s where I would’ve went. “So at this point we’re not worrying about ourselves, it’s just whatever it takes to get (Camryn) taken care of.” Camryn’s operations and extended stay has put an economic strain on the Werners, who are insured but are now facing out-of pocket expenses and major costs in the future for Camryn’s care. “Our insurance isn’t quite what it used to be. A lot of things don’t get picked up,” Jeff Werner said. “The big thing is there’s no way my wife can continue to work with Camryn’s condition. We can’t take her to day care because she can’t eat or anything like that. So my wife’s looking at probably taking the whole school year off, unpaid.” A benefit dinner for the Werners has been organized by Lynne Moore, personnel and benefits secretary at

Miller said the method of the drugs’ disposal is confidential, but explained it is done according to DEA protocol, which dictates at least two officers are present at every disposal, with the process being signed off by a commanding officer. “We eliminate the

vehicle permit — which will now be called a “recreation passport” — drops to $10 for Michigan residents. But you have to buy one if you want to visit a state park, because the daily $6 motor vehicle permit is being discontinued. “We’re really trying to appeal to people that have used state parks once or twice in the last few years,” said Mary Detloff, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment. “A lot of folks might not ever want to camp. But they might want to come and use the beach or use the trails.” Cost for a motorcycle permit will be $5 and outof-state passes will remain at $28 for an annual permit and $8 for a daily pass. The way the annual permits can be purchased also is changing. The DNRE is encouraging Michigan residents to buy a recreation passport when renewing their license plates with the Secretary of State. The renewal forms that residents receive each year in the mail will have a box that residents can check to “opt-in” to the new program. The permit fee will be added to the license plate renewal fee and the letter “P” will be added to the plate renewal sticker, which will serve as the state park entrance permit.

Second-grade teacher Jennifer Lazarz places pinwheels in the grass in front of Pat’s Food Center, 7620 Midland Road in Freeland. Freeland Elementary School and Freeland Learning Center teachers, parents and students placed nearly 1,000 pinwheels. All of the kindergarten through sixth-grade students from the two schools made pinwheels for the Pinwheels for Peace project.

Pinwheels promote peace

Freeland students participate in International Day of Peace project TOM GILCHRIST FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES

FREELAND — Nearly 1,000 handmade pinwheels were on display this week outside of Pat’s Food Center in Freeland. Freeland Elementary School and Freeland Learning Center teachers, parents and students were behind the pinwheel project to mark Tuesday’s International Day of Peace. Kindergarten through sixth-grade students from the two schools made the pinwheels. Xavier Magyar and his brother, Thorin, did some art work and some leg work while helping create the pinwheel display in front of the food center, 7620 Midland Road. Xavier, 10, and Thorin, 8, sons of James and Sonni Magyar of Tittabawassee Township, came before school with their dad to help set up the display. “My brother is the greatest artist in my family,” Thorin said of his older sibling. “He can copy off a clone trooper’s head in, like, a minute.” Thorin’s colored pinwheel, as well as Xavier’s, promoted an antiviolence theme. Thorin’s pinwheel showed a giant “X” going through a bloody fist, among other symbols of confrontation. Other pinwheels, such as ones made by kindergartner Logan Mann and sixth-grader Sydney Dennis, sported an array of colors from edge to edge. The International Day of Peace, established by the United Nations in 1982, takes place each year on Sept. 21, encouraging individuals, communities, nations and governments to end conflict. The Pinwheels for Peace project, started in 2005 by two Florida high school art teachers, features pin-

BAY CITY — Now you can donate food to charity when renewing your license plate tabs. Secretary of State offices in the Great Lakes Bay Region are accepting food donations as part of the Michigan Harvest Gathering, an annual food drive conducted by the Lansingbased Food Bank Council of Michigan. The Food Bank is hoping to raise $800,000 and collect 300,000 pounds of food during the drive. Food can be dropped off at Secretary of State offices in Bay City, Saginaw and Midland through Dec. 10. “We know that unemployment is up, and poverty rates are higher than ever,” said Jane Marshall, executive director of the Food Bank Council of Michigan. “We just have a great need in our state this year.” Marshall said the goal this year is the highest her agency has set, and she hopes to break it. So far, $159,590 has been raised. Lois Thomaszewski, treasurer of the St. Vincent de Paul Society in Bay City, said fall is one of the biggest times of need for families, because utility costs increase and school is back in session. “They have to supplement. They don’t make enough. Food is one thing they cut,” she said. “People have to have money to get their children back to school.” One in 12 families will

The following Secretary of State offices are accepting food donations as part of the Michigan Harvest Gathering: • Bay County PLUS office, 1007 N. Euclid Ave., Bay City • Saginaw County PLUS office, 4404 Bay Road • Saginaw South office, 4212 Dixie Highway • Midland office, 1832 Saginaw Road

struggle to put food on the table this fall, and one in six children is at risk of hunger, according to Food Bank Council of Michigan statistics. With the state’s unemployment rate the second worst in the nation at 13.1 percent, food pantries around the state are seeing new families and individuals all the time, Marshall said. “There’s always new people coming in and out of our network,” she said. “As unemployment goes up, people need help.” Marshall said most donations come through individual and corporate donors, but a lot of food is donated through the Secretary of State offices. Ken Silsven, spokesman for the Michigan Department of State, said branch offices are accepting only food, not money. He said the department collected more than 14,000 pounds last year. “It’s been a tradition we’re very proud of,” he said. “It’s the right thing to do.” Residents also may donate by going to the food council’s website, www.feed michigan.org, and hitting the “Donate to MHG” tab.

The pair spotted a red backpack in the woods and on approaching it, discovered Parks’ body nearby, Runde said. Runde said there have been many rumors surrounding the incident. “Most of them are not true,” he said. Though an autopsy was scheduled for Monday, authorities have not revealed the exact cause of Parks’ death.

Midland native killed while helping Filipino orphans

Man may have been target of anti-American organization GUS BURNS

BAY CITY — A “Polka Meets Classic Rock” benefit will be held from 8 p.m. to midnight Friday at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 360 S. River Road. Music will be performed by The George Brothers Band and the DynaKrueExpress Polka Band. The event features a cash bar, food, door prizes and a silent auction. All proceeds go to the Bob Nadolski family. Cost is $15 for adults and free for children age 13 and younger. For more information, call (810) 941-9008 or (810) 941-9009.

Kindy planned to bring video footage back to the United States to show to charities and churches, hoping the images would spur them to offer assistance to combat the plight of the orphans. He left the U.S. from Chicago in August with an open-ended return trip. “He was a very outgoing, loving, gregarious man and had a very strong faith,” Smith said. “He was very comfortable with himself. He made a difference; he made a difference in all of our lives.” Smith said her nephew grew up in Midland and raised his family in Saginaw. A bit of a comedian, the Bullock Creek High School graduate loved nature, hunting morel mushrooms and playing music, Smith said, and often entertained with his mother, a violinist, and his stepfather, also a guitar player, at area senior-living facilities. “He knew there were dangerous areas over there,” Kindy’s aunt said. “But he didn’t let fear run his life.”

BAY CITY — Construction crews had hoped to be putting the new clay tiles on the roof at Bay City Hall by now, but a delay in one of the shipments has pushed back that work. Two of the three shipments of the terra-cotta tiles have been at customs in Detroit for about three weeks, said Brian Droptiny, project superintendent for Gregory Construction Co., the general contractor for the project. Customs officials won’t let the two containers continue to Bay City until the third container arrives at customs, he added. The tiles are coming from Norfolk, Va., and went through Canada to get here, Droptiny said. He and Bay City Commission President Christopher Shannon, 1st Ward, said it is unknown what has delayed the third shipment of tiles. They are hopeful it will come through customs this week. “It would be nice to have them here, but it’s not delaying the project,” Droptiny said. The $1.6 million project replaces the clay tiles that have been on the roof since the 1890s. The project is expected to be completed by midNovember. Droptiny said crews from Mihm Enterprises, the Hamilton-based company doing the restoration work, are busy prepping the roof for the tiles. He said once the tiles arrive, extra crews will be brought in to stay on schedule. “It’s unfortunate, but what are you going to do?” he asked. Bay City Mayor Charles Brunner said talks have perked up around City Hall about potentially auctioning off the old tiles at fundraisers. “We’ve had conversations about it, but nothing official yet,” said Brunner. “I think it’s worthwhile, and there are people that would like it as a souvenir, especially because the whole project has been highly talked about.”

It would be nice to have them here, but it’s not delaying the project.” Brian Droptiny

OUR VOICE

Bay County is starting to get jobs in all the right places

Our motor’s really running with news this month that Bay County employers are adding and planning to create jobs in all the right places. Leading-edge industries and health-care employers are expanding, with all the help that local governments can give them. How do polymer truck springs grab you? Renosol Corp., with a factory of 35 people at 621 River Road in Portsmouth Township, aims to add as many as 125 jobs in the next five years to produce revolutionary springs for vans and light-, mediumand heavy-duty trucks. The springs, made of glass-reinforced polymer, weigh 70 percent less than the traditional steel springs that have been used since the days of Henry Ford and Billy Durant more than 100 years ago. In the automotive industry, where lightweight materials are the name of the fuel-efficiency game, this product of the Saline-based manufacturer promises to be a real gamechanger. And it’ll be made right here in Bay County. Thanks in no small measure to Bay Future Inc. and Economic Development Specialist Megan Trask. Bay Future Inc. board chairman and Bay County Board of Commissioners Chairman Brian Elder singled out Trask for her two years working with Renosol to bring those jobs here. Clinching the deal is a $3.1-million federal economic stimulus bond allocation that the County Board approved for Renosol last week. The county will loan the federal money to the company at a low rate of interest. Of course, no region of Michigan is in a position during this long recession to sneer at any job. But Renosol’s product in particular is exciting for its cutting-edge position in automaking.

COURTESY | FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES

This is the new type of leaf spring for suspension systems in vans, trucks and trailers that Renosol Corp. is planning to produce. It puts our region right where we want to be, inventing and making things, and providing services that aren’t made or offered anywhere else. It positions our region as a place to which the rest of the world will beat a path. With such an investment into this enterprise, we’ll expect Bay Future and county leaders to keep on top of this development to ensure these expected jobs materialize. A short hop away from Renosol is another, smaller project at Mersen, formerly called Carbone Lorraine, which plans to add four jobs and retain 120 with a tax abatement that the Bay City Commission granted for a new machining cell at the highperformance materials manufacturer. The tax break is on a $490,000 investment that we hope will help grow this longtime Bay City manufacturer. Downtown, and in Bangor and Hampton townships, it’s medicine — one of the fastest-growing industries in the nation — that’s providing new jobs. In Bangor, Saginaw Bay Dermatology has added four new employees

after a move to 4497 Sheffield. Downtown, Children’s Medical Group is adding two employees with a move to a new medical building kitty-corner from City Hall on Washington Avenue. Also in that building will be the Sound Asleep Sleep Diagnostic Lab with five employees. Finally, near Bay Regional Medical Center two sisters, Dr. Mary A. Durbin and Dr. Becky A. Lang, earlier this year opened their gynecology and obstetrics office in Hampton with nine employees. With these welcome, new jobs and prospects for more, it’s clear that Bay County and local municipalities are getting jobs in all the right places. These are industries that experts have been saying will lead the future of employment. Taken together, these recent developments are just a drop in the bucketful of jobs that our area needs. But just like the steady rain of jobs we hope they foretell, they are a very welcome start. Many thanks to these employers making their homes in Bay County, and to the governments helping them happen.

FROM THE WEB

Renosol Corp. looks to revolutionize leaf spring industry by investing in facility near Bay City http://www.mlive.com/business/mid-michigan/index.ssf/2010/09/ renosol_corp_looks_to_revoluti.html The Bay City Times Story posted Sept. 19 on MLive.com PORTSMOUTH TWP. — A Portsmouth Township company sees a bright future in creating better leaf springs, parts long used in the suspension systems of many vehicles. Renosol Corp., a specialty foam and polyurethane design company, is looking to transform the leaf spring industry by producing a new type of the spring here in Bay County. “We think it will revolutionize — basically — the weight savings and minimize the fuel usage,” said Douglas E. Peck, Renosol chairman and chief executive officer. “We think it will lead to

increased profitability.” A leaf spring is typically made up of plates of spring steel bound together. They attach to a vehicle’s axle and work with its suspension system. Saline-based Renosol wants to invest $3.1 million in its manufacturing facility at 691 River Road to produce glass-reinforced polymer leaf springs, which can cut the weight of the part by 70 percent. Peck said the project will use innovations in chemical polymer technologies. The investment is expected to create 125 jobs over five years, he said. Peck said Renosol, formed in 1981 from the Chemical Specialties Division of Hoover Universal, made a name for itself in 1987 by providing foam products and other applications to the automotive industry. “I think the automotive industry is going through severe recession and I think we will emerge from this recession because we have a good future,” Peck said. Renosol has 35 employees at its facility in Portsmouth Township.

Voice: Pat Huddy, Disability Services Resource Center, Bay City It has come to our attention at Disability Services Resource Center (formerly known as Bay County Crippled Children and Adults) that there has been a telemarketing campaign that is saying that we are no longer building wheelchair ramps. Nothing could be further from the truth. As I am writing this letter, there are approximately 30 individuals in our workshop from Nexteer who are doing a ramp “pre-build.” These three ramps will be installed on Sept. 25. On Sept. 18, there were three ramps installed by the United Way of Bay County, all materials and plans provided by Disability Services Resource Center. We continue to be a strong, viable, nonprofit organization that has served Bay County since 1933. We have built approximately 30 ramps, all with volunteers, in this past year alone. Bay County can look forward to our continued success. If you know anyone who is in need of a wheelchair ramp, hospital equipment or assistance in getting disabled children into our sports program, please call us at either (989)399-7509 or at (989)895-5444.

DREAM Act would help illegals, hurt taxpayers Voice: Edward S. Davison Jr., Tawas City For the sake of every person who has had his or her identity stolen by an illegal worker, and for every parent who has had to compete with an illegal worker, and every taxpayer, please keep the DREAM Act amnesty out of the defense authorization bill. No one has ever explained why illegals don’t have time to learn basic English reading and writing skills and be able to say the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America. If the government cannot secure our border, you’re not much of a country. Supporting the DREAM Act amnesty on the Senate floor would increase hardships on American men and women who have paid into Social Security and for health care, as well as unfunded legal immigrants, who are struggling to keep their homes and meet their families’ essential needs. How many Americans can travel to and from Mexico every year, and winter in the sun paid for by American food consumers? If you are considering supporting such an anti-American bill, at least make sure that it does not provide confidentiality for potential terrorists and criminals, requires the DHS to pursue and act on reports of fraud, mandates the use of E-Verify (to take away an incentive for another mass influx of illegal aliens) and eliminates the chain migration category for parents and adult siblings (to prevent this amnesty from ballooning into a mass influx of legal immigrants who will compete with unemployed Americans). Millions of Americans are counting on Social Security entitlements for retirement. Many people argue that children should not be forced to pay for the sins of their parents. Unfortunately, the DREAM Act rewards the illegal, law-breaking parents as well as the “innocent,” illegal “youths.” Legal American youth are ignored/ punished by the law. All of this so Sen. Harry Reid can win the Hispanic vote in Nevada. Fifty-nine percent of Americans support the Arizona law. Vote smart

Recent accidents show need for closer scrutiny of older drivers

Two recent crashes involving older drivers raise concerns about Michigan’s licensing policies. Last week, an 80-year-old Midland woman drove her car through the wall at the Third Street Station deli in Pinconning, where Standish-Sterling Central High School Principal Roger Fritz and several others, including some students, were on hand for a Rotary Club meeting. Fritz was taken to the hospital, but escaped with only minor injuries. One of the students was later taken to the hospital by her mother, again with minor injuries. No one else was hurt. Also last week, in downtown Bay City, a 75-year-old woman’s car struck three parked cars, a bench, light post and building while traveling in reverse. Amazingly, no one was injured.

We have to wonder if these sorts of accidents might have been avoided if Michigan started scrutinizing older drivers to ensure they are up to the rigors of the road. As it stands, all drivers, regardless of age, can renew their licenses through the Secretary of State every four years, with the option to renew by mail once during an eight-year span. Eight years is a long time between in-person visits, especially for older drivers. While it’s true that, statistically speaking, older drivers as a group are involved in fewer accidents than their young counterparts, they do pose a risk to themselves and others. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of motor vehicle crash deaths

per capita begins to rise for both men and women starting at age 70-74. By 80, the fatal crash rate per mile traveled increases notably. As people age, their vision changes as do their reaction times. This is why several states have implemented accelerated renewal dates and other provisions for older drivers. Michigan does allow family, concerned citizens, police, medical personnel and others to request a reexamination of a driver they suspect is unable to safely operate a vehicle. This is better than nothing, but to truly improve safety for older drivers and the rest of us who share the road, HOLLYN JOHNSON | THE BAY CITY TIMES Michigan should do what 26 other Dennis Nicklyn of Hammer Restoration works to clean up states and the District of Columbia have damage at Third Street Station where a driver drove her car done and implement more-stringent licensing provisions for older drivers. into the building last week.

Overpass closed for repairs

Arenac County drivers must use another route for a few months ANDREW DODSON adodson@bc-times.com | (989) 894-9649

LINCOLN TWP. — A Standish businesswoman hopes the recent closure of the U.S. 23 overpass into downtown Standish will help advertise the autumn scenery of Arenac County. Friday, a dump truck from Billy’s Contracting in Saginaw struck the U.S. 23 overpass while southbound on M-13, south of Standish. The overpass feeds traffic from Interstate 75 into Standish. The U.S. 23 overpass will remain closed for the next two to three months to repair what Michigan Department of Transportation spokeswoman Anita Richardson called “severe damage” to the deck of the overpass. The entire deck has since been removed and must be replaced on a section of the overpass. “Basically, it’s going to be a few months before that overpass opens again,” said Richardson, who said it will cost about $58,000 to fix the deck. “We hope to get the repairs in before the ice and snow come in.” Arenac County Sheriff Jim Mosciski said the driver of the dump truck

The bridge will be closed for several months. forgot to drop the truck’s dump down while traveling on M-13. The driver was cited for careless driving for ignoring the height limit of the overpass. With fall foliage around the corner, Ruth Caldwell, vice president of the Standish Chamber of Commerce, said she will make the best out of a bad situation. “It’s a little bit farther of a drive, but it’s a pretty drive for all of the visitors,” said Caldwell, who owns Pleasantries, a scrapbook and gift boutique at 108 E. Cedar St. in Standish. “Pine River (road) is a beautiful trip with all of the trees and the golf course.” Caldwell said motorists heading north on Interstate 75 to Standish,

Caldwell said that she hasn’t heard any complaints from local businesses at this point. “We’re lucky that we do have two exits,” she said. “We’ll just need people to use M-13, or drive to that second exit.” Frank Cloutier, spokesman for the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, said the out-of-service overpass shouldn’t be a huge hindrance for the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino in Standish.

Dog poop actually is quite illuminating

JAY LINDSAY

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — It stinks and it’s a hazard to walkers everywhere, but it turns out dog poop has a bright side. Dog poop is lighting a lantern at a dog park as part of a monthslong project that its creator, artist Matthew Mazzotta, 33, hopes will get people thinking about not wasting waste. The “Park Spark” poop converter is two Matthew steel, 500-gallon oil tanks painted Mazzotta a golden yellow, connected by diagonal black piping and attached to an old gaslight-style street lantern at the Pacific Street Park. After the dogs defecate, signs on the tanks instruct owners to use biodegradable bags supplied on site to pick up the poop and deposit it into the left tank.

Bill targets welfare recipients at casinos LANSING — The Senate sent to the House legislation aimed at preventing welfare recipients from withdrawing taxpayer money from ATMs while at casinos. Michigan uses a debit or “Bridge” card to deliver food and cash benefits to public assistance recipients. Many automatic teller machines accept the card to withdraw cash benefits. Republican Sen. Bill Hardiman of Kentwood said most people would agree that gambling with taxpayer dollars “isn’t an appropriate use.”

said the deal is for one hourlong debate the evening of Oct. 10. It will take place at the Detroit-area public television station in Wixom and be sponsored by the Center for Michigan. Commercial and public television stations around the state will

Megachurch pastor denies sex claims ATLANTA — The prominent pastor of a 25,000member megachurch denies allegations in a lawsuit that he coerced three young men from the congregation into sex, his attorney said. Lawyers for two of the men, now 20 and 21, filed the lawsuit against Bishop Eddie Long on Tuesday. The third lawsuit was filed Wednesday. The men who sued were 17- and 18-year-old members of the church when they say Long abused his spiritual authority to seduce them with cars, money, clothes, jewelry, trips and access to celebrities.

Court strikes down gay adoption ban

JOSH REYNOLDS | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A woman plays with dogs at a dog park in Cambridge, Mass. Behind them is the “Park Spark,” which powers a connected gas light with the methane gas given off by droppings collected at the park. People then turn a wheel to stir its insides, which contain waste and water. Microbes in the waste release methane, an odorless gas that is fed through the tanks to the lamp and burned off. The park is small but has proven busy enough to ensure a steady supply of fuel. Dog owner Lindsey Leason, a

29-year-old Harvard student, said she was all for seeing poop in a new light as she watched her two dogs play at the park. “Since I have to pick up dog poop a lot, I think I’d rather have it be useful,” Leason said. The project was funded by a $4,000 grant.

ANN ARBOR — A Jackson man was arrested in Ann Arbor after a fight with the pet parrot carried in his backpack. Police said witnesses reported the colorful bird was shaken so violently that its feathers were scattered. Three 911 calls were made after the Tuesday night incident. Lt.

Abbott recalls Similac powder

WASHINGTON — Drugmaker Abbott Laboratories is recalling millions of containers of its best-selling Similac infant formula that may be contaminated with insect parts. The voluntary action affects up to 5 million Similac-brand powder formulas sold in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Guam and some Caribbean countries. The company said the products may contain a small beetle or larvae, which could cause stomach ache and digestion problems. The recall does not affect any liquid formulas or other Abbott-brand products. A company spokeswoman said Abbott uncovered the insects last week in one section of a Michigan manufacturing plant. “We immediately shut down that one area and began an investigation,” said Abbott’s Melissa Brotz. Abbott manufactures Similac at several U.S. sites. Brotz said the company has been consulting with the Food and Drug Administration, which determined there was no “immediate health risk” from the contamination. The company has set up a website and consumer hot line at (800) 986-8850. Consumers may enter the lot number on their containers online to determine if they are subject to the recall. The products should be returned to Abbott for a full refund. The affected products were sold in plastic containers and in various can sizes, the company said, including 8-ounce, 12.4-ounce and 12.9-ounce.

MIAMI — Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said the state will stop enforcing its law banning adoption by gay people after an appeals court ruled it unconstitutional.

BAY CITY — Bay City Police officers still are on the hunt for the culprits who stabbed two Saginaw men during two brawls at the Prime Event Center in the past month. And now, venue officials say they have canceled all plans for future “urban” events. The first stabbing occurred in the early morning hours of Sept. 5. Following the Labor Day Bash at the downtown Bay City entertainment venue, 1201 Washington Ave., a fight broke out outside. During the fracas, a 22-year-old Saginaw man was stabbed once in the back. Witnesses told responding officers the stabber was an 18-year-old Saginaw man. “That incident is still under investigation by the Bay City Police Department,” said Bay County Prosecutor Kurt C. Asbury when asked if a suspect had yet been arrested or arraigned. A second stabbing happened at the center in the early morning hours Saturday. Speaking with officers at Bay Regional Medical Center, the victim said a fight erupted inside the building. On attempting to leave, he claimed to have been struck from behind and stabbed three times. Because of these recent incidents, Stephen J. Coppler, chief executive officer of Adoreable Promotions Inc., the company that handles events at the Prime, said changes have been made to the entertainment lineup. “We’re no longer doing any urban events,” said Coppler. “All of them have been canceled.” Urban events — such as rap/hip-hop acts and dance parties — were featured at

BAY CITY — Court proceedings for a Millington High School principal and varsity football coach charged with drunken driving in Bay County have been delayed. Roger E. Bearss II, 45, is charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, a 93-day misdemeanor, and a civil infraction of driving down the wrong way of a one-way street. A pretrial conference scheduled for Friday has been pushed back to Oct. 29, court records show. The adjournment is the result of attorneys handling the case seeking additional time for investigation, records show. Bay City Police officers arrested Bearss on July 25 after he allegedly drove the wrong way on Veterans Memorial Bridge, court records show. Court records indicate the defendant registered .17 on a portable breath test for alcohol. The legal limit in Michigan is .07. Bearss pleaded guilty to operating while intoxicated in 2003 in Benzie County. At that time, he was employed by the Frankenmuth School District. Bay County District Judge Dawn A. Klida will preside over Bearss’ hearing. Bearss is being defended by attorney Michael J.

Saginaw woman waives hearing LINCOLN TWP. — One of three Saginaw residents facing drug charges in Arenac County has been bound over to circuit court to plead or face a jury. Deidra R.

A grand olde tyme Bay City hosts Vintage Base Ball state tournament

BAY CITY — When Ron O’Laughlin heard there was a local team playing vintage baseball, he was curious. O’Laughlin attended a Bay City Independents practice in 2006 just to see what Vintage Base Ball was all about. By the end of the day, the 66year-old was part of the team. “I got talking to (team captain Jayme Johnson) and I went out there for one of their practices,” O’Laughlin said. “He asked if I wanted to hit a few — and I hadn’t swung a bat in a long time. Then he asked me to play.” This Saturday, O’Laughlin and the Independents host the Michigan State Base Ball Championship at Carroll Park. Games start at 9 a.m. and finish around 5 p.m. The tournament is free to the public. This is the third year of the tournament, which features the same four teams that participated in 1865: Saginaw Old Golds, Greenfield Village Lade-dahs, Rochester Grangers and the Independents. The first game of the day features the defending champion Old Golds

against the Grangers, while the Independents take on the La-de-dahs. Saginaw has won at least a share of the Michigan State Championship the past two years, sparking the rivalry between Bay City and Saginaw. “They’ve gotten the better of us the last two times we’ve played them,” said Johnson, who organized the Independents in 2005. “They really want to beat us, and we really want to beat them.” Richard Curry, the manager and catcher for the Old Golds, said it is usually a good game when the two Bay City Independents pitcher Ron O’Laughlin play against each other. pitches during a Bay City Independents “It’s a competitive rivalry, and we Vintage Base Ball game. both respect each other,” Curry said. “They’re a fine ball club and we both the ball and bats and talk to them have a competitive nature.” about the rules,” Curry said. While every team wants to win, There are a few differences between many Vintage Base Ball teams focus the way base ball was played in 1865 on the education aspect of the game as and the game people watch today, the well.

ALLEN PARK — If you want a real appreciation for the blazing speed of Detroit Lions rookie running back Jahvid Best, watch him in super-slow motion. The true testament of TOM Kowalski Best’s speed — along with his vision, balance and FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES explosion — is best viewed one click at a time. As impressive as Best was on the stat sheet — 78 yards rushing, 154 yards receiving and three touchdowns — he was even more impressive on the game film. Best turned in several excellent plays in Detroit’s 35-32 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but a review of the Lions at Vikings game tape Sunday: Detroit (0-2) at shows three Minnesota (0-2), 1 p.m., FOX stood out Sponsored from the othby ers. The first came early, on Best’s 33-yard run. The offensive line did a good job sealing off the left side, leaving tight end Tony Scheffler alone to block linebacker Ernie Sims. Scheffler got a good block, but safety Quintin Marshall was coming from the backside. It should have been a tackle, but Best’s speed allowed him to simply outrun the hit. Then, with receiver Bryant Johnson blocking a cornerback on the outside, Best cut behind him, using Johnson’s position to effectively “block” two players. That ability to cut back at full speed without surrendering a step allowed Best to gain an additional 19 yards. Average running backs have to slow down to change direction; the great ones can do it at full gallop. See LIONS, B4

he wants in Saginaw. He and his staff have done that through liberal trading, free-agent scouting, and draft savvy. This year’s 27-player roster consists of 13 draft picks, 10 players acquired through trades and four signed as free agents. Less than half of those players were on the team’s roster at this time last year. The focus in building the roster, Watson said, is bringing a host of players with different styles, but who all have

“It’s not just about drag racing,” Bowker noted. “A lot of the cars that show up on Saturday are street cars. Everybody is invited.” Bowker will show off his red 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible. While he used to race, he won’t be this weekend, deciding to have a car that’s more classic than fast. “It’s something I always wanted to have,” Bowker said of the car, which he bought from a junkyard and restored over a six-year period. On the opposite end of the spectrum is Rodriguez, who is bringing his red ’56 Chevrolet Bel Air for both the show and the drag racing. The Chevy was wrecked in the 1970s before Rodriguez fixed it up and turned it into a dragster with the addition of a bigger motor, bigger tires and safety equipment. “You’ve got to see it to believe it,” he said.

BASE BALL Teams gather for vintage Base Ball state tournament

Johnson said he wants the games they play to be living examples of history, so they’ll use the correct language of the time and show the fans the difference between the game today and how it was played over 100 years ago. Johnson and O’Laughlin have become unofficial historians for old-time Base Ball in Bay City. They spend the winter searching old newspapers and books to find interesting stories of players from the Bay City area. Johnson and O’Laughlin use the stories to put together an eight-page newspaper they pass out at different matches throughout the year. “It’s done for education, we are educating baseball fans on the way Base Ball was played in Bay City at one time,” O’Laughlin said. When it comes to playing, O’Laughlin is still a gamer. “On the field, I can’t run like I can in my head, and that’s a very frustrating thing,” O’Laughlin said, but added

Bay County Cross Country Leaders

that he has never heard any negative comments about playing on the team. “I’m just one of the guys out there, and that’s something I never quite expected and it still amazes me after five years. These guys are by far the best group of people to play with.” The Independents aren’t O’Laughlin’s only team. He played on Midland’s vintage Base Ball team this year as well as a 60-and-over softball team. He hasn’t been without his bumps and bruises, including plans to get his right knee scoped in October, but O’Laughlin still plans on attending a Detroit Tigers fantasy camp this spring and playing with the Independents next year. “I go out there to have a good time. I’m 66 and I get to play Base Ball,” he said. “I told (my daughters) that if I die while playing Base Ball, don’t feel sad about it, just bury me behind second base. I can’t think of a better place to go if I have to go.”

SPIRIT For three years, the Spirit have exceeded expectations

a strong work ethic and play with aggression. And lately, the team’s moves have signaled a win-this-year mentality. Twice during the summer, the team traded away draft picks for overage players, defenseman Matt Ashman and goalie Mavric Parks, who won’t be with the team beyond this year. Instead of starting the season with two inexperienced goalies, Watson went out and acquired Parks from the Barrie Colts, who had the league’s lowest goals against average last year. Watson has said

the team will be buyers, not sellers, in the trade market as the season goes on. While the team got off to a hot start last year and sat in third place nearly three months into the season, Watson didn’t think the timing was right to load up for a run. This year, though, the Windsor Spitfires are expected to take a step back, opening up the race for the Western Conference title. While Kitchener is widely

regarded as the frontrunner to win the West, it’s anything but a foregone conclusion. Watson just smiles when he talks about where people pick his team to finish. People have been picking Saginaw to finish in the league’s basement every year since he came to Saginaw. But for three years, he’s been beating the expectations while building a talent-laden roster. And soon, he says, people will see it.

Outside the huddle After two weeks, you would think the Outside the Huddle crew would have a clue. But they are as confused as Keith Olbermann at a Tea Party. “Olbermann and Dan Patrick were the best ever at ESPN,” Lee “T” Thompson said. “I wonder whatever happened to Olbermann? Did he die or something?” He was probably just

another Detroit Lions fan who, after years of frustration, went into hiding ... or to MSNBC, which is pretty much the same thing. Lee T. isn’t about to go into hiding, although he’s 0-2 on Detroit Lions picks, one of the reasons he’s tied for last place with “Stone Cold” Kyle Austin and Willy B. Wright. Still, Lee has made worse

decisions, like when he was a 12-year-old baseball player and tried to hide two chocolate bars by sitting on them or when he crashed a bachelorette party and left the seat up. Paul “The Professor” Neumeyer and Hugh “The Mad Bavarian” Bernreuter remain tied for first place after 8-7 records last week and own

a three-game lead over the three last-place contenders. “Don’t worry Lee,” the Professor said. “ESPN may not have Olbermann any more, but at least they have Matt Millen.” Lee smiled a little, knowing that Millen was now only dangerous to people who actually believed in his “expert” analysis.

Golden Helmet Award The Coca-Cola Bottling Co. and The Bay City Times are in their 46th year of presenting the Golden Helmet Award, given weekly to four top performers throughout the high school football season. Each winner becomes eligible for the season-ending Golden Helmet Player of the Year honor.

Garrett Bowker, Bay City All Saints 6-0, 165, Senior, TE/DB It’s not too often an All Saints receiver gets a chance to shine, but Bowker is making the most of his opportunities. The senior gave the run-dominated offense a spark through the air, catching four passes for 136 yards and a touchdown in a 51-8 win over Bad Axe. “We’re not a spread offense by any means,” All Saints coach Eric Gust said. “But when we do pass, we know we can go to Garrett and something is going to happen.” Bowker also had five tackles and an interception on defense and booted a PAT.

Chris Guinn, Essexville Garber 6-0, 185, Senior, RB/LB The Dukes have suffered from some setbacks of youth this season, but they saw a glimpse of the benefits of experience Friday when Guinn helped Garber score 29 first-quarter points on its way to a 43-6 rout of Bridgeport. Guinn rushed for a team-high 104 yards and two scores, while adding seven stops on defense. “He’s what we call our bulldog, our dirtdog,” Garber coach Jake Coquillard said. “He gives everything he has, and he loves the contact of the game. He definitely means a lot to our offense as he’s one of our best running backs.”

Austin Pichiotino, Bay City Western 6-1, 175, Junior, QB When it comes to dream games, it’s difficult to even imagine a better night than Pichiotino’s 500-yard, nine-touchdown performance. The reigning Golden Helmet Player of the Year accounted for 56 points in Western’s 57-27 win over Saginaw. Through the air, he completed 13-of-19 passes for 175 yards and five touchdowns. On the ground, he was good for 326 yards and four TDs on 17 carries. “We see it every day in practice, so it really didn’t take our breath away,” Western coach Bruce Mann said. “But then when you see the numbers, you see that it was a big deal.”

Cody Somerville, Reese 6-0, 185, Senior, RB/LB In a battle of Greater Thumb West unbeatens, Somerville emerged as the difference-maker in Reese’s 41-20 victory over Vassar. He rambled for 169 yards and four touchdowns on 26 carries on one side of the ball and rang up seven tackles with a pair of sacks on the other. “He’s been a darn good player for us,” Reese coach Bob Saylor said. “He’s got decent size and great speed, so when he breaks into the open, he might be gone.”

Western boys soccer team tops Central, 3-1 THE BAY CITY TIMES

Boys Tennis

BAY CITY — Bay City Western coach Jeff Swears was nervous. With fifteen minutes left in the game, his team was clinging to a 2-1 lead, but he could feel the momentum of the game shifting over to Bay City Central. Central’s Connor Lemiesz had just missed scoring the tying goal with a shot that bounced off the post. But with about six minutes left, Western moved the ball into Central’s end of the field. That’s where Tyler Gilbert found Alex Dardas about 15 yards out, and he buried a shot to take some of the pressure off of the Warriors. With the win, Western moves to 9-32 (3-0-2 Saginaw Valley League) while Central falls to 5-2-2 (3-1-1 SVL). Central got on the board first when Connor Lemiesz battled off a Western defender and put one past Western’s Taylor Schumann. Western came back ten minutes later when HOLLYN JOHNSON | THE BAY CITY TIMES Brandon Awad put home a rebound.

Dantonio will watch Spartans from his living room this Saturday

GREG JOHNSON

FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES

EAST LANSING — Michigan State linebacker Greg Jones said it felt like his heart dropped when he heard coach Mark Dantonio had suffered a heart attack. “It was rough initially, but I realize now he’s going to be OK,” Jones said after hearing Dantonio had been discharged from Sparrow Hospital. “He’s living, he’s going to be healthy and he will be back coaching us when he can.” Dantonio, 54, and in his fourth season as Michigan State’s head coach, underwent a surgical procedure early Sunday morning in which a stent was used to open a blood vessel leading to his heart. The heart attack happened about 30 minutes after his team’s 34-31 overtime victory against Notre Dame late Saturday night. Michigan State, 3-0 and ranked for the first time this season at No. 25, hosts North-

Big difference for Robinson? His ability to throw the ball

PETE BIGELOW

FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES

Minnesota coach Tim Brewster hasn’t seen Denard Robinson in person — the Gophers fell off Michigan’s Big Ten schedule in 2009 and 2010 — but he’s awestruck by Robinson’s development. “The thing that has really struck me about Denard is how Rich (Rodriguez) has brought him along as a passer,” Brewster said Tuesday. “I’m kind of amazed at his numbers. He’s obviously a very special player.” In 2009, Robinson completed 45.2 percent of his passes while throwing four interceptions in 31 attempts. Through three games in 2010, Robinson has completed 69.7 percent of his attempts for 671 yards, four TDs and one interception.

team’s past three experiences against FCS opponents: they escaped with a 42-37 win against UMass, drubbed Delaware State, 63-6 and lost to Appalachian State, 34-32. “It’s so hard to schedule a nonconference home game that schools are reaching,” Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez said about dipping down into the I-AA ranks for opponents. “But you’ve got to be careful. You’ve got to make sure your guys are ready to play.” Entering Saturday’s game, Rodriguez thought the Wolverines were ready. He thought the team had a good week of practice before shoddy defense nearly cost the team a win against UMass. “You worry about the letdown after a good win and you’ve got an FCS opponent coming in,” he said. “I was surprised that, defensively, we didn’t play very well.”

LIONS In slow motion, Best’s moves are even more spectacular

Later, on Best’s 14-yard touchdown run, his speed was on display as he split defenders not once, but twice. Excellent blocking made it a significant gain, but the speed turned it into a touchdown. Best’s finest move came on the 75-yard touchdown off the screen pass, a play that didn’t look like it was going to go anywhere. After Best took the pass, it appeared he wanted to race to the outside because a linebacker was waiting. However, Best slowed down because Calvin Johnson failed to maintain his block

Here are college football’s early winners, losers Winners and losers as the first month of college football approaches a close: Winner — Trent Richardson, the Alabama running back who started for injured Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram the first two games, one of them a blowout in which he saw limited duty and averaged 105 yards, confirming how little the Crimson Tide lose when they go to their NFL-ready backup. Losers — The 20 Football Bowl Subdivision teams that average fewer than 105 rushing yards per game. The 120th out of 120 teams, Wyoming, averages 24.3 yards. Winner — Mark Dantonio, the Michigan State coach whose profile shot up almost immeasurably within the span of a few moments late Saturday and early Sunday. First, when he stepped out of character and called for the overtime fake field goal that torpedoed Notre Dame, then when he suffered a mild heart attack in the aftermath of the victory. Congratulations to Dantonio on the football side and best wishes on the health side. Loser — Butch Jones, who followed

both Dantonio and Kelly at Cincinnati, where he is off to a 1-2 start, with Oklahoma coming to town Saturday and the only win coming against Indiana State. DAVID Winner — Denard Mayo Robinson, the Michigan FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES quarterback who leads the nation in rushing and total offense and has shoved himself to the front of the Heisman Trophy discussion. Someone will figure out how to shut him down, because U-M doesn’t have enough weapons around him, but it sure hasn’t happened yet. Losers — Houston’s quarterbacks, most notably Case Keenum, who was a Heisman Trophy candidate until he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament while making a tackle Saturday in a 31-13 loss to UCLA and was lost for the rest of the year. Keenum, the fifth-leading passer in NCAA history with 13,586 yards, was replaced by Cotton Turner,

pass went incomplete. • On fourth down, the entire offensive line got bullrushed and left tackle Jeff Backus gave up the most ground, to defensive end Trent Cole. (Right tackle Gosder Cherilus was also blown off the line of scrimmage by Juqua Parker, just not as bad.) With Backus backpedaling toward him, Hill was forced to throw as he was backing up. His pass didn’t have the velocity he wanted and tight end Tony Scheffler, who was running a crossing route in the middle of the field, had to slow down for the pass. That allowed cornerback Joselio Hanson enough time to react and break up the pass. The Lions had the ball, the momentum, plenty of time and the opportunity to win the game. They just didn’t have any playmakers at crunch time.

who incurred a broken collarbone and concussion in the same game and likewise is out for the rest of the season. Winner — Bobby Petrino, the Arkansas coach who took a wide-open offensive system, inserted former Michigan quarterback Ryan Mallett and produced a Southeastern Conference-contending team with a Heisman Trophy-contending quarterback. Winner — The SEC has the best nonleague record among BCS conferences (19-3), including wins by Alabama against Penn State. The Big 12 (27-5) is second, followed by the Big Ten (26-6). Winner — No. 3 Boise State, which also has national championship aspirations from outside the BCS mainstream, has received decent support from the Western Athletic Conference, which is 12-10 in nonconference games. Loser — No. 4 TCU and No. 13 Utah have designs on a national championship and major bowl bid, respectively, except their brethren in the Mountain West haven’t helped them gain any respect.

looks at the tape to really understand what Best did and how he did it. In the space between the 25- and 26-yard line—just three feet—Best went right, cut left, then cut back to his right again. He planted his right foot to cut left and then, after a small hop, planted his left foot to go right again. He never stopped moving. Best used so much torque making the move that it appeared he might stumble, but he never lost his balance. In the next step, he was at full speed again, and it was a foot race the Eagles could not match.

Rookies could be big part of Tigers CHRIS IOTT FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES

DETROIT — On Opening Day next season, the Detroit Tigers could use rookies at seven of the eight positions in the field. They won’t do that. But they could. The challenging part for general manager Dave Dombrowski and manager Jim Leyland this offseason will be deciding which rookies are ready to make an impact on an everyday basis — and who isn’t quite ready for prime time. The Tigers have played well down the stretch this season, and Leyland said it is important not to let a strong finish distort the team’s offseason needs. The Tigers will go through a transition this offseason, with several big contracts coming off the books and several positions in the field unsettled. “You don’t want to downplay what these kids are doing, but you don’t want to get carried away either,” Leyland said. “You want to keep the fans positive — they’re excited about some of the young guys now — but you have to be realistic. “I think there are some ingredients here that are pretty young that can handle the job at this level, for sure. But if you think you can just take all young guys and go walk through a division, that’s not going to happen. You’re going to get your (butt) beat.” A team expected to be young at the start of spring training ended up even younger as the season wore on, but the rookies have made key contributions. Outfielder Austin Jackson appears to be the front-runner for the American League Rookie of the Year award, while Brennan Boesch got off to a scorching hot start and Alex Avila has settled in as the starting catcher. The Tigers’ rookies entered Tuesday night’s game with a combined 481 hits, the franchise’s most since the 1929 team had 590.

Detroit Tigers right fielder Casper Wells dives but is unable to catch a fly ball off the bat of Kansas City Royals batter Billy Butler in the fifth inning Tuesday in Detroit. The ball landed for a single in a game the Tigers lost, 9-6. Their combined six hits Monday night pushed them past the 1954 Tigers team, which had 475 hits. Despite the contributions, Leyland said it is important to temper enthusiasm and be realistic about what each young player has to offer in the short-term. “If you remember right, four months ago, people were talking about Boesch as Babe Ruth,” Leyland said. “All of a sudden that’s gone away, and they’re talking about Will Rhymes and Casper Wells. You’ve got to be careful with all that. “You’ve got to make sound judgments as an organization.” When Rhymes hit his first major-league home run Monday night, he became the seventh Tigers rookie

TRAVERSE CITY — Many questions remain unanswered as Mattias Ritola makes the transition to the NHL after three seasons with the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins. Will he play with the Detroit Red Wings this season? Is he ready to play at this level? Will he become a productive second-line winger one day, or is he destined to be a third- or fourth-line grinder? Whether he stays in Detroit could be determined in a couple of weeks, following the Red Wings’ eightgame exhibition schedule, which started Wednesday in Pittsburgh in the inaugural game at the Consol Energy Center. Detroit has one forward too many and likely will choose between Ritola and Drew Miller, barring a longterm injury. Both were in the lineup Wednesday. Ritola is out of minor league options, so he must either make the Red Wings’ roster, or be traded or waived. The 6-foot, 205-pound Ritola is described as a thick-bodied, two-way player who can hang on to the puck down low. He has some offensive ability, but posted modest numbers in the AHL with season-highs of 19 goals and 42 points. “He’s very strong on his feet, great hands and has some real good instincts,” Griffins coach Curt Fraser said during Red Wings training camp at Centre I.C.E. Arena. “I think Matt will do a lot better at this level. I think he’s built for this. “He’s worked hard the last couple years for this opportunity. There’s some serious competition for those last three spots, so he’s going to have to play exceptionally well to give himself a good chance. I think he’s more than prepared to step in and help the Detroit Red Wings.” The Red Wings signed Ritola, 23, to a three-year contract in May, but he realizes that doesn’t assure him of a roster spot. “I need to show that I want to be here and I’m willing to take the puck to the net and shoot the puck more,” Ritola said. “I feel like I have the skills, but I need to use them.” Red Wings general manager Ken Holland called Ritola a work in progress, and said the former Swedish junior star tends to hang onto the puck too much on the perimeter instead of taking it to the net. “The thing he’s learning in the transition from Europe to North America is to get to the front of the net,” Holland said. “He does a lot of things with the puck, makes a lot of nice plays. It looks good, but not enough happens offensively.” Said Red Wings assistant GM Jim Nill: “He hasn’t shown the natural tendency to want to be a goal-scorer. He plays more of a safe game.”

The Minnesota Vikings have signed free agent receiver Hank Baskett to a one-year deal. Baskett practiced with the team Wednesday, one day after being released from the Philadelphia Eagles. He comes to a team in desperate need of healthy receivers. Sidney Rice is out for at least another month after having hip surgery and Percy Harvin has a strained right hip that leaves his status in question for the game Sunday against Detroit.

Coach Mike Tomlin picked Batch over Byron Leftwich, who is recovering from a sprained knee ligament.

Former Italy coach Giovanni Trapattoni said he is hoping fans will look back on his reign in a different light after the arrest of former referee Byron Moreno in New York. The Ecuadorean, blamed by Italian fans for the Azzurri’s elimination from the 2002 World Cup, was caught on Monday at John F. Kennedy Airport with bags of heroin attached to his body, according to U.S. federal prosecutors. A judge jailed Moreno without bail on a drug smuggling charge. Moreno ejected Francesco Totti for an alleged dive 13 minutes into overtime in the second round of the 2002 World Cup, and South Korea used the man advantage to score and win 2-1.

Reid changes mind, will go with Vick THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The decision to make Michael Vick the starting quarterback means Andy Reid wasn’t fibbing about one thing: the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t in rebuilding mode. After insisting all along that Kevin Kolb would start when he returned from a concussion, and one day after saying Vick was going back to the bench despite two dazzling performances, Reid changed his mind. Why? Vick gives the Eagles (1-1) a better chance to win in a division that lacks a dominant team. A three-time Pro Bowl pick with Atlanta, Vick is playing at an even higher level now, even though he missed two years and saw limited action last season. The Eagles play at Jacksonville (1-1) on Sunday. “There’s not a thing that changed with Kevin Kolb,” Reid said Wednesday. “This was all about Michael Vick and the way he has played the game. It’s that simple. He has played as outstanding as any quarterback in the league to this point.”

Each season the Lions talk about how they have to get the ball to Calvin Johnson, yet he’s Bruce invisible Gunther for long stretches of games. I’m starting to wonder, is it the team or the receiver? Funny how the good teams figure out ways to use their weapons.

ers include a passed tray of hors d’oeuvres — carpaccio of beef on black olive toast point, zucchini pinwheels and salmon roulades — domestic cheeses with baked breads and crackers, and an Escargot station with imported snails sautéed in white wine, chicken stock and garlic butter and garnished with puff pastry. At the carving table is glazed pork loin stuffed with fresh vegetables and spicy Italian sausage, with whole-grain mustard sauce. And after a grilled lettuce salad tossed with sweet Dijon vinaigrette comes a buffet featuring an autumn chicken roll-up, stuffed with asparagus, prosciutto, sun-dried cherries and gouda cheese, topped with hollandaise sauce and served with braised micro carrots; herb-crusted sun-dried tomato lamb chops, accompanied with Russian fingerling potatoes and garlic Madeira sauce; filet of sole almondine, served with sauce almondine and rice pilaf, and a medley of oven-roasted vegetables — squash, zucchini, eggplant and red onions. Guests also can take a sneak peek at the museum’s new exhibit, “Artists Portray Artists,” on loan from the Kresge Art Museum at Michigan State University. “This is our sixth year, always ‘Saints, Sinners’ and another ‘S’ word that changes every time,” Wheaton said. “For us, it’s a great reason to get 300 people to the museum, and raise money for our education and exhibition programs.

Artists for art’s sake

SVSU hosts exhibit with an interesting angle SUE WHITE

FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES

In the offices at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum at Saginaw Valley State University hangs a portrait of the famed sculptor, painted by one of his peers, John S. Koppin. Elsewhere in the gallery is a bronze bust, again created by one of his fellow sculptors, John O’Hara. And in those pieces, says director Marilyn L. Wheaton, lies the inspiration behind securing the museum’s latest exhibit, “Artists Portray Artists.” “In every exhibition, we try to find something that has to do with Marshall or sculpture,” she said. “I’ve known about this one for a long time; it sparks the imagination, artists capturing artists in their works. “It was a natural for us.” While the original exhibit at Michigan State University’s Kresge Art Museum was a two-part show, featuring works from the 16th through the 19th centuries, then from the 20th century, the show loaned to SVSU includes 35 etchings, See ARTISTS, PAGE 16

‘Wall Street’ sequel shows greed can still be good CHRISTY LEMIRE

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW — WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS Released from prison, fallen stockbroker Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) looks to repair his relationship with his estranged daughter (Carey Mulligan) by aligning himself with her fiancé (Shia LaBeouf), a young Wall Street trader on the rise. Rated PG-13 for brief strong language and thematic elements. BC8, FSC, MC, S12

a brutal takeover. Just listening to him describe why he has a particular Goya painting in his office is intimidating. Most of the time, simply through the sheer enormity and force of this juggernaut, it all works. “Money Never Sleeps” looks fantastic — the work of Oscar-nominated cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto (“Brokeback Mountain,” “Broken Embraces”) — with its shimmering aerial shots of Manhattan. The place rises from the Hudson River like Oz, an idealized, bustling city of endless possibility (although Stone didn’t need to add split screens and tickers running through skyscrapers to magnify the sense of movement). Every sleek high-rise office and modern loft offers dazzling views; every character is expensively dressed. As if there weren’t enough ego and testosterone bursting through, Jacob and Bretton even race Ducati motorcycles

through the fall foliage to escape the reality of the stock market plummeting. Yes, it’s over-the-top like that. But fun — for a while. Eventually, “Money Never Sleeps” goes soft and loses its way. The romantic subplot between Jacob and Gekko’s estranged daughter Winnie, of all people, feels needless, even though it does allow for the radiant presence of Carey Mulligan. It also raises some questions: As Gekko himself so astutely wonders, if Winnie hates her father so much, why would she get involved with a man who does the exact same thing, which she found so reprehensible? Jacob’s dream of funding an alternativeenergy company is intended to redeem him somewhat, but really, he gets that same gleam in his eyes when it comes to the prospect of getting rich. And what happens in the last couple of scenes espe-

cially stands as a stark and almost laughable contrast to where these characters began and what they’re supposedly made of. Then again, as the song goes, money changes everything. “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” a 20th Century Fox release, is rated PG-13 for brief strong language and thematic elements. Running time: 133 minutes. Three stars out of four.

biting and propulsive, and the hugely esteemed ensemble cast is a kick. Besides Douglas, who’s better than ever even as a toned-down snake, Shia LaBeouf is solid as an ambitious young trader — he feels like a grown-up, finally — and the two stars have a couple of electric exchanges. But there are plenty of showy supporting roles, as well. A beefed-up, suspendered Frank Langella provides both gravitas and humor as founder of the powerful Keller Zabel Investments; he also serves as a father figure to LaBeouf’s Jacob Moore. Susan Sarandon chews up the scenery as Jacob’s tacky, talkative mother, a former nurse who’s been enjoying the good life as a high-end Long Island real estate agent. And Josh Brolin is a formidable villain as Bretton James, a billionaire partner at a rival investment bank who ruins Keller Zabel with rumors of debt, then arranges

Oliver Stone was making a statement on the glibly money-hungry times when his “Wall Street” came out in 1987 and, with it, the iconic figure of Gordon Gekko declaring that greed, for lack of a better word, was good. Twenty-three years later, greed is still getting a lot of people into a lot of trouble. The entire country, in fact. And so Stone’s latest, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” is the rare sequel that not only feels relevant but necessary. Of course, his hindsight is 20/20. Everyone’s is. But here, Stone takes the economic collapse of 2008 and places Gekko — played masterfully by Michael Douglas, returning to the role that earned him an Academy Award — in the middle of it. Having been released from federal prison after serving time for securities fraud, money laundering and racketeering, Gekko is now free to swim among even more dangerous sharks than he ever dreamed of being himself. The question becomes: How will he react? Will he use his shrewdness to try to beat them at their game, or will he actually have found a moral center during his time behind bars? That story line alone could have provided the basis for one meaty, worthwhile movie. “Money Never Sleeps” also crams in a father-daughter story, a few different mentor-protege stories and a romance. It’s big and loud and brash in an almost operatic way — and knowingly, joyfully so. For a movie about a depressing topic that we’re all-too familiar with, “Money Never Sleeps” is surprisingly entertaining. The dialogue from Allan Loeb and Stephen Schiff is

“It’s not really hot,” Wall said of the sauce, offering a spoonful in a dining room filled with framed newspaper articles, trophies, ribbons and World War II memorabilia. “After you take a taste, you might sit back and think ‘That’s got some kick to it.’” The best way to check out the restaurant’s true flavor — a recipe that had some 500 people in Reno waiting in line for a taste — is the sampler platter, featuring ribs, brisket and pork, along with two sides. Smaller appetites might consider Bone Daddy’s Favorite, a sandwich stuffed with a pound of sliced beef

brisket or pork shoulder. Or you can try the explosive Dynamite version, with grilled fresh peppers and onions, sliced brisket, cayenne pepper sauce and pepper jack cheese. And about once a month — look for it in late-October — there’s tri-tip steak, a marinated morsel that Wall calls the best thing he’s ever tasted. Wall comes in around 6 o’clock every morning, he said, to prepare for the lunch crowd, and then he reloads for dinner, cooked fresh for the day’s second round, and any catering jobs. He comes by his love of barbecue naturally, growing up working with his father, Bill Wall of “Billy Bones” fame. “He set the standards in the industry,” Wall said of his dad. “He used professional cuts of meat and always served quality food. He also taught me how to keep my feet on the ground.” Sweet Baby Ray looked Wall up in Reno this year,

“and here is the man who has the corner on the market, and remembers me as the kid who carried the projector to my dad’s barbecue seminars,” he said. “He told him that my dad is the one who inspired him to go into barbecue. That really hit home.” In time, Wall developed his own style, working in Texas and Colorado before returning to Michigan. It was grilling for his friends while building houses in Colorado that gave him the nickname, as in “what’s on the menu today, Bone Daddy?” “I learned some different things — most barbecue is stolen secrets anyways — but there’s still a lot of pressure when you know you’re representing Saginaw, Bay City and Midland to the world,” he said. “This is what we call northern-style barbecue, like the dry style of Memphis, the mesquite of Texas and the vinegar style of the Carolinas. I’m proud of Michigan, and of using what’s available

here. And now it’s put us on the map. “Facebook and Twitter takes old-school barbecue to a new school level and it brings us up to date. It lets everyone know what we’re about.” Some of the more traditional competitors in Reno got a little scowly, Wall said, when a Yankee pulled the trophy away again. But he has news for them. He’s feeling right at home now, in the town where he married his wife, Kim, some 19 years ago, and he’s ready for more. Next August, he’ll shut the restaurant down again so he and his crews can defend their title in Reno. “I need the labor force, and they’re very good at what they do,” Wall said of his employees. “It’s nice to have that kind of support; it gives us the bragging rights. “And now that we’re back, we didn’t change a thing. If 30,000 to 40,000 people tell us it’s the best, we’ll take their word for it.”

enactors, fittingly from the southern counties in Michigan, have created a large presence at many Civil War commemorative events such as one recently in Jackson where 40 members turned out for a big show. “I think they will send at least 18 here for the River of Time, and with some others will be able to do a number of battles,” he said. The 5th Texas men will man one ship in the river during a naval battle on Saturday, Davis said, and then combine with others to launch an attack on a combined army of Union regiments on Sunday. The number of re-enactors will be large enough this year to fill much of the southern end of the park, from the Trombley House south. Facing off against the Texans and

their cohorts will be elements of the Great Lakes Division including the 114th Pennsylvania Zouaves, the 14th Michigan Infantry, 16th Michigan Infantry, 22nd Michigan Infantry, 102nd U.S. Colored Troops and the USS Michigan Guard. “We will have something new, also, on the Union side with Berdan’s U.S. Sharpshooters,” Davis said. “These are the special forces wearing the distinctive green uniforms and firing Sharp rifles. There will be at least 40 to 50 of them so it is quite a large contingent.” The artillery will be represented by two cannon from the Hudson’s


Battery and a returning favorite of many River of Time visitors, the Williams Gun of Steve Graves. “It is a breech loader which fires rapidly, and is quite popular,” Davis said. “There will be a number of demonstrations.” Many people aren’t aware of just how the soldiers in the field get their ammunition, food and equipment before and during a battle, Davis said. “This year we have two Civil War wagons which made freight deliveries to the troops,” Davis said. The canvass-covered wagons are similar to the Conestoga wagons used by settlers. The re-enactors form a quartermaster company, showing all of the equipment needed on a battlefield and other materials for setting up a military camp. The unit was formed by Tom Patton and Brian Kennedy, of Ubly. “We’ll also have Fred Priebe and his wife portraying Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln,” Davis added. “We also hope to have other figures, possibly

will get it and understand. The network whittled at them and broke them down.” That sort of dumbing down of television is a theme throughout the play, says codirector Mike Dunckel of Bay City. “It was the time of McCarthyism and censorship,” he said. “People were watching shows like ‘Ozzie and Harriet’ and ‘Father Knows Best,’ simple shows.” The show is seen through the eyes of Lucas Brickman, aka Simon, who not only participates as a writer but reaches out to the audience as the storyteller. Kyle Betzold of Kawkawlin,

making his debut on the Players stage, takes on the role of the young Simon. “The role really relates to me,” he said. “I’m the newcomer Lucas, and I’m the newcomer to the play. It’s awkward.” Starring as the only female on the writing team, Mary Lee of Bay City plays character Carol Wyman. The role is based on writers Selma Diamond and Lucille Callahan. “It’s actually fun being one of the guys,” Lee said of her character. “She says she wants to be considered one of the guys. She wants to be a good writer and that means becoming one of the guys.” Lee says the entire cast

couldn’t stop laughing while going through their lines at the beginning of rehearsals. But, Lee assures, they have it all under control now. And while it’s a funny play, it does contain strong adult language, Sills warns. To complete the backdrop of the 1950s, the Players lobby will be decorated with “Your Show of Shows” photos and the show itself will be playing — in black-and-white, of course. Tickets are $17 for adults and $15 for students and senior citizens. For more information, call (989) 893-5555 or log on to www.baycityplayers.com.

Theater turns game shows into dramatic experience PATI LALONDE

FOR THE BAY CITY TIMES

Can you name that tune? Do you know if the price is right? How about the $64,000 question? For everyone who ever wanted to be on a game show but never had the opportunity, head over to the Van Buren Street Theatre for a performance of the original comedy “The Great Game Show Fiasco.” The show is on stage this Saturday and Oct. 8-9, 15-16, 22, and 29-30. A dinner show is planned for Oct. 23. Written by Bay Cityans Mike Asiala, owner of the theater, and Jessica Booth, the show brings members from the audience on stage to play such favorites as “Name That Tune,” “The Dating Game,” “Jeopardy,” “The Price is Right,” “$25,000 Pyrmaid” and “The Gong Show.” “Everyone loves these shows,” Booth said. “A lot of people want to go on a game show and don’t get the chance. This is a fun way to do it.” Just like on TV, there will be a game show host — Mike Olk of Bay City. “He’s the star,” Asiala said. “He’s Bob Barker, Drew Carey. He has that ‘I’ve got my own trailer’ attitude. He’s very friendly because he has to be, but behind the scenes, he’s pompous.” Straight from his starring role in the locally produced feature film “Meltdown,” Vern Zaucha of Essexville plays himself as the celebrity half of the “$25,000 Pyramid.” “It’s me,” the former firefighter said. “I’ve got some ideas on how to play it.” And no game show worth its salt is complete without a behind-the-scenes announcer

What: “The Great Game Show Fiasco” When: Show only, 7:30 p.m. this Saturday and Oct 8-9, 15-16, 22, 29-30; dinner show at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23 Where: Van Buren Street Theatre, 701 N. Van Buren St. Tickets: Show only, $19; dinner show, $36 Info: (989) 893-9399, vanburenstreettheatre.com — in this case, Ed McMannhein, played by Chris Gouin of Kawkawlin. “He’s a cross between Max Headroom and an overbearing guy,” he says of the character. Booth will be taking on a variety of roles, including game show hostess Lana Black. And yes, there will be prizes, and some lucky person will go home with a grand prize. What prizes? Sorry, that would be telling too much. “It’s a game show on a budget economy,” warns Booth. Anyone wishing to participate may leave his or her name at the ticket desk upon entering. A handful of those signing up will be invited on stage to play the games, except for “Name that Tune.” For that portion, audience members will vote one person from each table to play. Tickets for the show only are $19. Dinner show tickets are $36. Other dinner shows may be added if there are enough requests. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (989) 893-9399 or log on to www.vanburenstreettheatre.com.

they broaden their scope,” he said. “And we’re bringing in people from around the world, internationally known names, to speak on the subject of art.” It’s different this year, too, Seyferth said, because people now know what to expect when they hear of ArtPrize. “It’s gratifying to me to see the city so com-

pletely engaged,” DeVos said. “The artists are physically involved, installing their works. You hear the voices, people talking with the artists about their works and responding to their artistic visions. “Leave your car, hop on a shuttle with your map in hand, and give yourself at least a full day to take it all in.”

Advice

Don’t let anyone drag your self-image down Hi, Carolyn: I divorced, found myself again, and I’m out there dating. After a lot of dead ends, I’ve met someone with whom I really connect. He has been separated about six months after 15 years of marriage. I know he likes me (a lot), but he also says he’s not looking for a long-term relationship. Eventually I do hope to find a partner, though if I don’t I’ll still be fine enough. But I don’t want to be Rebound Girl. What to do? It seems like a hopeless scenario, but I don’t want to give up the best thing I’ve had in a long while. — Washington

If you do think you can handle it — if you’re not afraid to feel like roadkill if this flops — then take the chance and see where it goes. You’ve recovered from a divorce, so you can recover from this. The question is whether he’s worth that kind of effort. In fact, try to think less of how he feels about you, and more of how you feel about you. Don’t date him, or anyone for that matter, past the point where it’s dragging your self-image down.

Dear Carolyn: My boyfriend and I have been casually looking at engagement rings for him You have to take him at his to see what I like, but word. If you don’t think you I’ve asked him if I can be can handle sharing or losing involved in picking it out, him, then you need to back off, and he has agreed.

When I mentioned this to my mother, she told me I was greedy, ungrateful and “You’re lucky you’re getting anything.” It hurt my feelings to no end. Now, she didn’t get an engagement ring from my father, so I’m guessing this is colored by jealousy a bit, but ... I feel horrible. Am I an ungrateful wench because I want something on my finger I’m not allergic to and would actually like to look at for the rest of my life? — N.Y., N.Y.

tough on you? I can see her disagreeing, fine, but “Ooh, I hope you didn’t hurt his feelings when you asked that ...” would have gotten her point across without trashing your character. That phrasing also would have allowed for the possibility that there wasn’t anything wrong with it, and left you room to explain your rationale. To answer your question, your rationale sounds fine to me. You can be pragmatic without being presumptuous. That said — when you presented this to your mom as a matter of avoiding an ugly ring, that might not

Videos

“Alien Autopsy” Humorous reconstruction of the 1995 scandal when two British lads were accused of having faked a documentary from the Roswell incident in 1947. Starring Bill Pullman, Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly. Rated PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity, language and some disturbing images.

“Robin Hood” An action bloodbath having almost nothing to do with any Robin Hood you may be familiar with. Actually a prequel to the Robin Hood legends, it has Robin as

a mercenary home from France and leading a revolt against the tyrannical King John. Cate Blanchett is Marion, not a maid but a widow, and the film is a good deal darker than the title might lead you to believe. The third act is largely violence of the sort we have seen over and over and over again. Rated PG-13 for violence including intense sequences of warfare, and some sexual content.

“Secret of Moonacre” A 13-year-old girl discovers that she is the only hope for banishing an ancient curse from a magical kingdom. This is an adaptation of author Elizabeth Goudge’s 1946 children’s book “The Little White Horse.” Starring Dakota Blue Richards, Ioan Gruffudd, Tim Curry, and Juliet Stevenson. Rated PG for some mild peril and language.

ARTISTS Exhibit at SVSU features work with a unifying theme

photographs, lithographs and paintings from the contemporary collection. “At the Kresge, we were always trying to use our collection in interesting ways,” said former Kresge Art Museum director Susan Bandes, who assembled “Artists Portray Artists.” “We had self-portraits, from Rembrandt, for example, but I started looking at how artists portrayed other artists. It became a much more interesting collection, rather than a bunch of heads, and it was surprising, the variety of ways the artists were portrayed.” Working on the concept for several years, Bandes was able to purchase significant pieces for the Kresge, filling in the spaces. And in 2003, it debuted 150 works that included self-portraits as well as portrayals of peers. “Jim Dine has a piece in the exhibit, and from the bathrobe in the picture, you know it’s him,” she said. “It’s the same with Cindy Sherman; you know it is her, even though she says otherwise.

From Page 12 —

What: “Artists Portray Artists” When: Noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Opens Friday and continues through Jan. 29. Where: Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum, Saginaw Valley State University Admission: Free Info: (989) 964-7125 “John Copeland has one of his torso when he was in his 70s, and while it’s not appealing, it’s absolutely direct.” That same candid approach comes through in several of the works, Bandes said, which include portrayals of writers, musicians and dancers as well. Isadora Duncan is portrayed in one, Martha Graham in another. And Ralston Crawford’s portrayal of the jazz scene in New Orleans is riveting, she said. “In most cases, they are portraying themselves through their work,” she said. “This wasn’t done for posterity; it is focused on the subject.”

That includes some very abstract pieces, she said, as well as photographs. And some, with a little investigation, reveal much about the artists, those portrayed as well as the creators. “We have one from Robert Longo that is simply titled ‘Eric,’ so that you could look at the piece without reading more into it, but we recognized actor Eric Bogosian,” Bandes said. “Larry Clark is another, sitting there with a gun. He was into the drug culture of the 1980s, but people may not know that part of his life. He’s gone past it.” It all works, she said, because it’s so easy to get into portraits, and the varied approaches, once there, take the viewer beyond the original idea. And she will give more insight in a pair of gallery talks, held at 5 and 7 p.m. Oct. 27 at the museum. Both are free and open to the public. In all, said Wheaton, “this is a fine example of two of Michigan’s state universities partnering to bring interesting works of art to a broader audience.”
