Woodstove Safety by Tammy Middaugh email: tmiddaugh@rummelinsurance.com · Phone: 989-673-4169

There is nothing like the glow and warmth of a woodstove on a snowy, sub-zero evening. Sitting there with your feet up, petting your canine baby and sipping on a hot chocolate; life is good. Until it isn’t. You notice a smokey smell, but your mind rationalizes that it’s a woodstove and this is normal. After all, your woodstove is in good shape, and your wood is well seasoned and dry. However, as smoke starts filling the house, the whole mood changes! Now, I’m lucky; my spouse is an all-around jack-of-all-trades and knew what to do in this situation by immediately adjusting the vent. It did get me wondering; what if we hadn’t been home? What if we had taken one of our afternoon, no destination, road trips? We would’ve come home to such a mess. I really don’t know how this happened. We did learn a few things through this minor inconvenience: 1. It could have been a major issue. 2. Just because you are doing everything right, doesn’t mean something can’t go wrong. 3. Our smoke detector did not work (that was the scariest of all). We urge you to take a moment and assess your woodstove. Has it been maintained properly? Is there any rust or build up on the pipes or thimbles? Do you have fire retardant material all around it or have flammable materials made their way too close? Maybe you’ve pulled up the rocking chair just to get a little more heat. Is the box of newspaper sitting too close? Do you empty the ash pan regularly? Is your smoke detector working? Do you have enough coverage on your home if something does happen? Just a quick look around can prevent a major loss. When in doubt, call in a professional for helpful tips on keeping your woodstove working and your family safe. And do not forget to have a conversation with your insurance agent to make sure your coverages are up to date, and that you are properly covered.

In case of emergency

If Lansing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act by Dec. 31, it would be a disaster. To avoid that, emergency services director Deputy Steve Anderson asked the county Board of Commissioners on Thursday to pass a one-month state of emergency declaration based on the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The commissioners didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act, pushing the decision to their Dec. 23 meeting in the hope the state Legislature will act to solve the issue. The reason for the declaration is to allow for continuation of virtual meetings for local governments. The current allowance ends on Dec. 31. Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request, however, almost didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it before the commissioners. District 5 Commissioner Dan Grimshaw objected to having it on the agenda. The commissioners had terminated a similar declaration earlier and repeatedly have chafed at state disaster declarations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree that we need to bring it back up,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to counter it. â&#x20AC;Ś.

Michigan Congressman Paul Mitchell submitted a letter to Republican Party leadership Monday QRWLI\LQJ LW WKDW KH LV VZLWFKLQJ SDUW\ DŕľśOLDWLRQ from Republican to Independent. Mitchell, of Dryden, represents Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10th district in Washington, D.C. The district encompasses all of Sanilac, Huron, St. Clair and Lapeer counties as well as northern Macomb County and the eastern two-thirds of Tuscola County. CNN published a copy of the letter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which Mitchell later posted on his Twitter page â&#x20AC;&#x201C; addressed Monday to Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. In it, Mitchell criticizes President Donald Trump, who has not conceded the 2020 Presidential Election despite losing to President-elect Joe Biden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is unacceptable for political candidates to treat our election system as though we are a thirdworld nation and incite distrust of something so basic as the sanctity of our vote,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said in the letter.

Mitchell is in his second House term, having been elected in 2016 and 2018. Representatives serve two-year terms. Mitchell, a former businessman, announced in July 2019 that he would retire following this term, which will end on Jan. 2. He was interviewed on CNN Monday afternoon, the same day that United States Electoral College members met in their respective states to levy their votes for President. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It became clear to me that I could no longer be associated with the Republican Party, that leadership does not stand up and say the process, the election is over, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over today,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then I saw the President tweet out itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not over until Jan. 20 (Inauguration Day) and somehow heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to continue to combat this.
