Caro councilman on microdistillery: ‘We stopped business’ BY ANDREW DIETDERICH Editor

Caro City Council member Joe Greene accused his fellow elected officials of discrimination, overstepping its bounds, and colluding to effectively run a $1.2 million investment out of town. Joe Greene, member, Caro City Council, even took an opportunity to step away from the council’s table to address the board and those in attendance as a member of the community – a first in his 10 years as an elected official. His message? Caro elected officials blew an opportunity presented to them by Scott Romain – a Caro native who

proposed to build a $1.2 million rum microdistillery/restaurant in downtown Caro, a project many have recently said would bring much needed business activity into town. Instead, Caro City Council voted Sept. 19 against recommending the project receive the necessary liquor licenses. The official reason given to the state was that it was too close to a church. “When we did this, it came to be that we were taking on the state’s responsibility to approve the liquor license – we said it was within a certain distance of a church or school,” said Greene, who cast one of two votes recommending

Romain be granted the licenses. “We were the judge and jury before they even had a chance to move that far,” Greene said. “We stopped business.” “I feel like we don’t have the attitude of ‘Yes we can help people come to Caro to open a business’ because it was a great investment,’” Greene said. Still, Caro City Council voted Monday to form a committee to reconsider and further evaluate Romain’s plans. The committee includes several city department heads, Romain, and four council members, which means the meeting is open to the public. See MICRODISTILLERY A4

REESE

Fairgrove Twp. selects Newcomers seek election engineer for wind project to Reese Village Council BY DEBANINA SEATON Reporter

Fairgrove Township has become the third township in Tuscola County to approve a Saginaw-based engineering firm to oversee a planned $200 million wind turbine project. Fairgrove Township Board of Trustees approved Spicer Group Inc., an engineering and land surveying company from Saginaw, to plan and review services for wind project Tuscola III Wind Energy Center. The decision was approved by Fairgrove Township Board of Trustees at its monthly meeting Monday evening.

Fairgrove Township Supervisor Keith Aeder studies the Spicer Group proposal at Monday night’s meeting. Township board members approved the proposal, making it the third township to select the Saginaw-based company to review the proposed Tuscola III wind farm.

Spicer Group’s proposal included a schedule of the overall progress of the project which included the developer -Juno, Florida-based company NextEra Energy Resources L.L.C -- submitting a special land use permit application that would provide escrow to Fairgrove Township. Spicer also will help the Fairgrove Township Planning Commission develop

schedules for upcoming meetings regarding the Tuscola III wind farm and assist officials in developing public hearing notices. NextEra Energy Resources deposited $60,000 in escrow funds into the township wind turbine account, increasing the monies in the account from $923 in August to about $61,000 as of Sept. 30. “I know them from the work I did with them in Gilford Township and the way that they put all the data, and informational diagrams and everything else in the computer system that they brought,” said Township Treasurer John McQuillan, who explained work the company completed in Gilford Township during the Tuscola II wind farm. “It made it very easy to respond to questions associated with ‘how far is this from my house, what are the sound levels, what is the shadow flicker.’ They could pull all that stuff and project it. And so I didn’t think there’d be any reason to switch as well as the fact that I don’t know anyone else around qualified to do that work.” Spicer’s fee for project work is about $40,000 including attendance at the public hearing and site plan reviews for each turbine at about $1,700. “They did a good job for us last time around,” said Supervisor Keith Aeder. “I have no reason to think they won’t do a good job for us this time around.” McQuillan said Alan Bean of Spicer Group had already helped the Fairgrove Township Planning Commission in the process of rewriting the township zoning ordinance. McQuillan said rewriting the zoning ordinance will be placed on the backburner until after the wind project is complete. This month, Almer and Ellington townships approved for Spicer Group to review their parts in the Tuscola III wind project. See FAIRGROVE A5

Reese Village Council could see some fresh new faces if seasoned trustees don’t prevail in November’s election. Brian Weihl and Jamie Comer, both employees for Janson Equipment Co. in Reese, have decided to run for Reese Village Council Trustees for four-year terms. Both seek one of the three open trustee seats on the council, and are running against each other, as well as against three council members with several years of experience. In all, five candidates will be on the Nov. 8 ballot for three, four-year trustee spots. Denise Fielbrandt, Pete Bouvy and John Weber are also running for trustee. Bouvy and Weber both were appointed to the council in 2012 filling vacancies held by Vickie Rummel and Bob Godi. Fielbrandt has served on the council since 2003. Reese Village Manager David Tatrow said this year marks the first time since he has been manager there will be an actual race, as opposed to appointing trustees to fill the vacancies. “I think it’s great that you can get people in a small town to step up and run for office,” said Tatrow. “I think it’s wonderful.” Tatrow has been in office since August, 2011. The newcomers, Weihl and Comer, are both first-time candidates, married with families and both work at Janson Equipment Co. in Reese as agriculture equipment salesmen. Weihl, 45, considers himself the “hometown guy with hometown values” being raised in Reese and making his permanent residence there in 1995. Weihl lives with his wife, Liz, his three children – Alaina, Sean and Alexis – and believes his roots in Reese will help him win the residents’ votes. “The reason I’m running is because I really like politics,” said Weihl who attends Trinity

Lutheran Church and attended Reese Public Schools. In the past, Weihl said he was pleased with the work the council was doing from what he saw at the meetings he attended and wants to keep everything running smoothly and honestly. “I really want to see our village become the best (village) in the area. I’m an upfront person, and I’m going to do everything the honest way,” said Weihl. Weihl feels the major issues facing the village are WEIHL residents’ safety, communicating with the local law enforcement and keeping the village clean. Comer, 39, lives in Reese and has resided there most of his life, he said. He is a homeowner, married to his wife, Leah, and they have one child, Gavin. COMER Comer said making a difference in the community was his main reason for running for office. “I’ve lived here all my life pretty much and I just feel now’s the time to give back,” he said. “I know they had some trouble in the past with the (assistant fire chief Gerald Ellison). I know they were looking for people so I donated my time.” On Sept. 17, The Advertiser reported former Reese Village Council President Ellison was sentenced to 11 months in Midland County Jail for stealing about $48,000 from his former employer. Ellison served Reese as assistant fire chief and treasurer of the Reese Volunteer Fire Department. Though co-workers with Weihl, Comer said he isn’t fazed or influenced by his fellow agriculture salesman hindering his campaign. See REESE ELECTION A11

WATERTOWN TWP.

Watertown Twp. race comes closer with trustee challenging supervisor BY DEBANINA SEATON Reporter

With the primary election over, the race for Watertown Township Board of Trustees supervisor is on. Incumbent Danny Quertermous is looking for a third term as supervisor, but is pitted against Watertown Township Trustee Frank Worvie in the November general election. Quertermous, a Democrat, has served as township supervisor for eight years and said he isn’t fazed he’s contested. “I welcome the competition,” said Quertermous. “It gives the people of Watertown Township as many options as possible and lets them decide. I’m sure QUERTERMOUS the Watertown Township voters are intelligent people and they will make a wise decision as to what is best for the township.” According to city-stats.org, Watertown Township has a population of more than 2,100 residents and is 49 percent Republican and 48 percent Democrat and the remaining 1 percent consider themselves Independent. Quertermous’ opponent -- Worvie -- won the Republican nomination against challenger Ruby Stark 130-39 in the Aug. 2 primary. If he didn’t win, Worvie could have lost the chance to challenge Quertermous as well WORVIE as his current trustee position on the board. Worvie said he never felt he needed to become supervisor, but felt now is the right time. “I’d like to be more accessible to constituents,” said Worvie.

“To me talking with voters in the area, they would like to have a voice that will (speak for them). They would like to get home phone calls answered -- to have someone actually speak to them rather than speak to an answering machine.” Quertermous said he considers himself a public servant in his supervisor position and at work -- as a corrections officer at the Michigan Department of Corrections. Quertermous said both jobs qualify him to be the best candidate for the job because they allow him to serve the township. Quertermous said as supervisor, he was faced with difficult decisions like disbanding the township police department, which he said resulted in better police coverage from the Tuscola County Sheriff’s Department and Michigan State Police than a solo officer that worked 40 hours a week. As for his accomplishments he said he is proud of his work in maintaining roads, which he feels continues to be the biggest issue in the township, and succeeding in the day-to-day

Trick-or-treating hours set for Tuscola County BY DEBANINA SEATON Reporter

Tuscola County trick-or-treating times are set for Oct. 31, but the time periods are so quick it’s scary. Several villages have only one hour for children to trick-ortreat, so starting on time is important. Caro trick-or-treaters are reminded the alarm will sound at 6 p.m., and at 7:30 p.m., it will go off again alerting kids and parents time is up. Villages like Kingston, Mayville and Fostoria will have hours only from 6 to 7 p.m. Some villages and cities have extended

times to an hour and a half like Marlette, Cass City and Deford. The Advertiser contacted several townships for trick-or-treating times and several noted the township shares hours with the largest nearby populated city or village. Millington and Arbela townships share the same times with the village of Millington which has hours from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The longest times gathered were in Unionville, Gagetown and Sebewaing from 5 to 7 p.m. Some townships did not respond to The Advertiser by deadline to provide trick-or-treating times. Debanina Seaton is a reporter for The Advertiser and can be reached at debanina@tcadvertiser.com.

MICRODISTILLERY Story continued Continued from A1

The first meeting is tonight (Wednesday, Oct. 19) at 6 p.m. at the Caro Municipal Building. Romain says he plans to participate and isn’t ruling out the business for Caro, though he is being courted by other jurisdictions. As The Advertiser reported June 4, Romain, 30, originally planned to open Thumb Rum & Brew by the end of the year at 119-121 North State Street in Caro (most recently the location of Anna’s Attic). Because rum is derived from molasses, the microdistillery would be able to take advantage of close proximity to the Thumb region’s massive sugar beet growing and processing operations. Romain’s plans included a restaurant called “The Destination,” which is why he painted “What’s Your Destination…2017” in the windows, though the “2017” is now gone. On Sept. 19, Caro City Council voted 5-2 against approval of two motions, one involving recommending a license for the microdistillery and another for the restaurant. Caro Mayor Dick Pouliot, and Councilmembers Gordon Taggett, Brian Rickwalt, Mike Henry and Charlotte Kish voted no while Greene and Richard Lipan cast the yes votes. Official meeting minutes from the Sept. 19 meeting state that Pastor David Dietzel, Caro Assembly of God, voiced opposition on behalf of the organization’s board to “establishment of a distillery and place for alcohol consumption.” Diane Romain, Scott Romain’s mother, asked the council on Oct. 3 how representatives of the church knew to prepare a statement ahead of the Sept. 19 meeting. Snider stated she didn’t know how Dietzel knew but that he came in the Friday before the Sept. 19 meeting and “asked if he could get a copy of (the agenda).” “Rumors spread in Caro faster than the wind blows, so…” Snider said at that meeting. “People talk,” Henry said. On Tuesday, however, Pouliot told The Advertiser it was he who reached out to the church on Sept. 13 – six days before the meeting of the council vote, and three days before Snider said Dietzel “asked if he could get a copy” and the agenda was supposedly available to the public. Pouliot said church representatives contacted him in June after news of Romain’s plans broke. They asked what was happening and if they could be alerted ahead of time to when the microdistillery would be on the agenda. When Pouliot received a draft agenda for review on Sept. 13, he said he gave church officials notice the same day. “That is what I believe is my responsibility to the people of this community when they ask me a question…to answer that question and tell them how the public process works,” Pouliot said. “I replied to their inquiry,” Pouliot said. “In all honesty, why wouldn’t I do that with anyone in the community?” Romain said he believes other issues factored in.

“I think the town is aware of the mayor's position on alcohol,” Romain said. “He has stood in the way of a few businesses. What I was unaware of is the length he was willing to go. “What went on behind my back should be a red flag to other business leaders...he just did not like my idea for the town.” The day after alerting church members, the Caro City Council went to Mackinac Island for the Michigan Municipal League Convention, which took place Sept. 14-16. Caro City Council members seem to agree it was a topic of discussion amongst them throughout the conference, though there is debate over the extent to which it was discussed. Greene said Monday and Tuesday that it was discussed in-depth at dinner settings. Greene also flat out accused Henry of “making plans to try and get other people to come and kill this.” “You and Mr. Pouliot were talking about it constantly and not including others” Greene said to Henry Monday. “And you knew it was on the agenda and we never saw the agenda before.” Pouliot said it was discussed more in passing and informally. Pouliot also said that while at the Mackinac conference, he asked Olson a specific question about the entertainment aspect of Romain’s plans. The Advertiser asked Pouliot why the Sept. 19 vote wasn’t tabled when there were clearly such detailed questions days before the meeting. “That’s a valid point,” he said. Meanwhile, Romain said he was preparing for something quite different to happen at the Sept. 19 meeting. Romain said he was contacted by former City Manager Jared Olson on Sept. 2. Olson invited Romain to present his idea under the guise of being the “Business Spotlight” for Sept. 19 – a section of the meeting during which businesses and nonprofits often present themselves on an informationalonly basis. An email obtained by The Advertiser shows the manner in which Romain was invited to the meeting. “Any way that you could make that meeting and be the City Councils (sic) Business Spotlight?” Olson said in an email to Romain. “The council usually reserves five to ten minutes for a new business to come in and explain their business, backgrounds, goals, and sometimes answer any questions that the board may have. “Along with you being the business spotlight, you could also stick around in case they have any questions on the two resolutions that you need.” Romain said Tuesday that because of the way it was presented he didn’t expect any board action at the meeting. On Oct. 3, Henry defended the overall action of the council taken on Sept. 19, blaming Romain for not being prepared to answer detailed questions about wastewater, fire suppression, and other technical aspects of the plan. Henry said the council was “forced” to vote the way it did because council members didn’t have enough infor-

mation “to make an educated decision.” Pouliot said Tuesday that it “would’ve helped” if Olson had better handled the plans. He also explained that Romain’s proposal represents “unchartered territory” for the council, which typically sees plans after they have been through the city’s planning commission. “Knowing the governing body, information up front would’ve been critical,” Pouliot said. Greene said Monday it should’ve never happened this way. Instead, he said the council should’ve approved the recommendation and left the determination of how close the microdistillery would have been to a church up to the state’s Liquor Control Commission. If they had determined it was within the limits, Greene said, the state would have reached out to representatives of the affected church and they would have had 15 days to respond. Further, Greene said, forming a committee to handle Romain’s plans sets a dangerous precedent. “Once we set up this committee, we’re saying any new business that wants to come to town will have to come before this committee,” Greene said. “We have nothing to hang our hat on…it’s discrimination,” Greene said. Pouliot said Tuesday that it’s “unfortunate” how the handling of Romain’s project has caused a rift among council and the community. “Nobody sits at that table to cause hardships, divisiveness, or animosity, or hurt people and somehow that’s happened,” Pouliot said. “Any of that is wrong and that’s unfortunate. “I respect and appreciate and love this community and I’m a stakeholder in this community,” he said. “And right now, it hasn’t been good for the community and that’s unfortunate.” Andrew Dietderich is editor of The Advertiser and can be reached at andrew@tcadvertiser.com

Mastadon skull found in Mayville

(Photo by John Cook)

The search for prehistoric remains continued last weekend at The Fowler Center for Outdoor Learning near Mayville. During the second weekend, the crew found something big -- the top half of a mastodon skull and several other pieces of the prehistoric mammals body. Daniel Fisher, director of the U-M Museum of Paleontology and leader of the dig, called it “the most complete Michigan mastodon skeleton in many decades.”

CASS CITY Story continued

Demolition of Reese Middle School started

Continued from A1

“All we are doing is listening to (Cass City’s) pitch,” Romain said Tuesday. “There is a building in downtown Cass City that needs repair and they wanted to show us.” Cass City Village Manager Peter Cristiano did not return several messages left by The Advertiser Tuesday. Steve Erickson, executive director, Tuscola County Economic Develop Corp. and Cass City council member, could not be reached. However, Nancy Barrios, also a member of Cass City Village Council, said she was the one from Cass City who reached out to Romain to determine his interest in Cass City. “I would be excited and thrilled if they would bring it to Cass City,” Barrios said. “When I read in the paper that they are having a hard time in Caro, and also being pursued by Vassar and Bay City, I thought ‘Well, you know, Cass City’s got a lot to offer.’” Barrios said initial discussion with Romain has included highlighting Cass City’s status as a “nice, clean community.” She highlighted a number of business investments in the works already, too, including Cass City Market, being developed by Mark Molter. Molter told Tuscola County Board of Commissioners last week that the project is now valued at $5.2 million (as opposed to $4 million), due to slight changes in the original design. “We’re growing, we’re finally getting our grocery store back, we’ve got the (Dairy Farmers of America) plant expansion, and the (Hills & Dales) hospital expansion,” she said. “We’ve got a wonderful school district, we’ve got large streets that are wide and can accommodate traffic and we have storefronts and

buildings that are available. “I think it would be wonderful,” she said. As The Advertiser reported June 4, Romain, 30, originally planned to open Thumb Rum & Brew by the end of the year at 119-121 North State Street in Caro (most recently the location of Anna’s Attic). Because rum is made from molasses, the microdistillery would be able to take advantage of close proximity to the Thumb region’s massive sugar beet growing and processing operations. He said plans included a restaurant called “The Destination,” which is why he painted “What’s Your Destination…2017” in the windows, though in the last two weeks someone has erased the “7” from 2017. He has said the project could ultimately create 30 new jobs. On Sept. 19, however, Caro City Council voted 5-2 against approval of two motions, one involving recommending a license for the microdistillery and another for the restaurant. The reason given to the state was close proximity to a church, though officials have since said there were “other reasons.” Since then, frustration levels have grown in Caro and the city council has agreed to reconsider the plan – a process that begins with tonight’s meeting. As of Tuesday, Romain said he isn’t committed to one location yet (though he did buy the Caro building of the proposed site in April). “I will keep all options open until my team and I are satisfied with a location,” Romain said.

Rubble continues to roll in Reese Tuesday morning as workers from R. C. Hendrick & Son Inc., 2885 S. Graham Road, Saginaw, raze the former Reese Middle School. After finding no potential buyers for the property, Reese School Board members approved that the building would be demolished. Middle school students now share a building with Reese High School, 1696 S. Van Buren Road, a transition that began after the 2015-2016 school year. Here, red lockers matching the district's school colors are dingy in the October sun as the building continues to come down. Since merging with the high school, Reese educators and board members said the sixth-through-eighth grade students can now receive programs they wouldn’t have had, including robotics, choir and astronomy.

plan to the Tuscola County Economic Development Corp. (TCEDC) Tuesday. The goal is to not have the storefront closed for any length of time. Customers can expect to see increased coffee, coffeebased drinks, and smoothie offerings, a refined menu to include sandwiches and other items such as hummus (homemade), along with increased hours (yet to be determined). Brown said as she learns more about Caro customers’ preferences, the menu and other offerings are subject to change. During Tuesday’s EDC meeting, she fully acknowledged the differences she will face operating in Caro versus Frankenmuth. “I’m very excited about Caro,” Brown said. “I think there’s so much opportunity here. “Looking at the current Intermission Deli…there are a lot of things we saw immediately right away that can increase traffic.” Mark Ransford, co-owner of Caro-based Ransford-Wasik L.L.C., which b o u g h t Intermission Deli about four years ago, said Brown has exciting ideas and her team can dedicate the kind of resources needed to run a successful foodbased business in downtown Caro. RansfordWasik will retain ownership of the Shannon Brown, owner, building and Frankenmuth’s Harvest lease it to Coffeehouse & Beanery, plans to H a r v e s t open a second location in Caro in Coffeehouse. coming weeks. “Our passion is buildings in downtown Caro and the history that’s here,” Ransford said. “We love the infrastructure, but we’ve never been interested in running a restaurant. We’re not restaurant operators. “To have someone like Shannon come in from Frankenmuth, who’s a proven operator, knows how to do that, and lets us do what we love while she does what she loves – Caro’s going to benefit,” Ransford said. Brown said her family purchased Harvest Coffeehouse – located across the street from the

Frankenmuth Visitor Center – in June 2013. “Since then, it’s continued to grow,” Brown said. “The previous owners (of Harvest Coffeehouse) had filed bankruptcy twice prior to our purchasing.” Harvest Coffeehouse offers specialty coffees and coffee-based drinks, such as espresso, cappuccinos, mochas, breve, and lattes, just to name a few. Brown said her company plans to soon begin roasting coffee beans in Frankenmuth – a move that she said will cut costs and improve flavor by offering “fresh-roasted coffee.” The same beans (Photos by John Cook) An interior shot of Intermission Deli, which will soon become Harvest will be used in Caro, she Coffeehouse & Deli.

other services, for nine local school districts. The intermediate school district operates the Highland Pines School along with the Tuscola Technology Center, both in Caro. The audit for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016 shows total expenditures of $25,334,290 – with a fund balance of $14,401,894. As a rule, local school districts – educating students from kindergarten through 12th grade – are advised to keep a surplus in the general fund equal to 15 percent of a school district’s expenditures, Hartel said. But intermediate school districts, providing special-education services – mandated by the state and federal governments – “typically don’t go with that ’15 percent’ rule,” Hartel said. “The intermediate school district’s general fund isn’t even its biggest fund,” Hartel said. “The special education fund would be far bigger than the general fund.” The intermediate school district’s $14.4 million fund balance “is secure but it’s reasonable,” Hartel said. Tuscola Intermediate School District Superintendent Gene Pierce said about $3.9 million of the $14.4 million fund surplus is “spoken for,” meaning portions of the savings are designated to pay for roof improvements, a new parking lot and other projects. Included in the portion of the fund equity that’s “spoken for” is $1.25 million the district will use to pay back a zero-interest government loan, Pierce said. “That figure of $14 million is not accessible money. There is $10,509,696 accessible to us,” Pierce stressed. Pierce said the size of the fund equity – as a percentage of the district budget – would be smaller if one uses the Michigan Department of Treasury method of comparing the fund balance to a school district’s revenues instead of expenditures. Using that method, the Tuscola Intermediate School District fund balance amounts to about 49 percent of the district’s budget. Hartel reported the size of the fund balance increased by 14 percent from the end of the prior fiscal year – going from $12,682,219 to $14,401,894. Pierce said the intermediate school district is fortunate to have the $14.4 million fund balance. “We respect that and we don’t blow money on things,”

Pierce said. “I want to make sure this ISD is solvent for years to come, and we want to be of service to our local districts.” A smaller fund balance at the intermediate school district could create financial trouble for local school districts, he said. “If I don’t have that fund balance – and special-education costs are out of sight – let’s say I’m sitting on $2 million (as a fund balance), and we go through that (Photo by Tom Gilchrist) money,” Pierce said. “Now Gene Pierce, right, Tuscola Intermediate School District superintendent, we’re into a ‘bill-back’ situ- addresses board of education members including, from left, James Brown and ation, because it’s not our James Welke, on Monday night. option to provide specialeducation services, it’s our Saginaw County’s Buena Vista Township.

“Anything personal I don’t take to work with me,” added Comer. “I leave my personal life outside of work. The fact that I want the best for my community. I don’t have any personal gain for this. I’m not doing this for personal gain - I believe doing this is being part of the community and being a part of it.” Weihl said he feels the same way. “We truthfully don’t talk too much about it, but I don’t see it being a problem at all,” Weihl added. One of the recurring issues Reese has faced is the Meadows Mobile Home Trailer Park controversy. For several years, Reese Village Council has combated to have the residential trailer park pay back delinquent sewer monies and bankruptcy payments. The park, owned by Park Lane Management Inc. in Bay City, owes the village about $30,000 in funds, but this month village attorney David Fisher will send off a 45-day notice to the park owners concerning the delinquent bankruptcy payments while waiting for another village attorney — David Meyer — to draft a notice giving the village 30 days to pay the sewer bills off. Weihl said the mobile park issue has

the village in a difficult situation. “It’s kind of (like) our hands are tied,” said Weihl. “But it would have to be something to look into the owners with it. Just sit face-to-face with the owners and get (the park) to where it was 20 years ago. It could be a very nice park for people to live in, but unless we get in some meetings with them, we will probably be in the same situation 20 years from now.” For Comer, the Meadows situation is being dealt with the best way it can. Handling other residents’ livelihoods is difficult, he said, and the worst thing is evicting anyone from their homes.

PUMPKIN ROLL Story continued Continued from A1

Roll drew more than 3,000 visitors to Vassar – a record crowd according to Ben Guile, the Vassar police chief directing the event. Though the Pumpkin Roll – founded by former Vassar police chief John Horwath – was in its 22nd year, Saturday marked the fifth year it offered $500 to anyone sending a pumpkin up the ramp and into a barrel. Steve Cook of Vassar’s Cook GM Super Store, who sponsored the chance to win the money, gave the prize money to Luna and her mother, Marie VanSipe, on Tuesday. The Pumpkin Roll was founded to try to dissuade local vandals from rolling pumpkins down the hill, destroying the orbs that sometimes wound up in traffic. Slightly more than 2,600 pumpkins were tossed this year – for 50 cents apiece – with proceeds going to the Vassar Parks and Recreation Commission. The number of pumpkins rolled “came real close” to a record number, Guile said. “It’s right up there with the best of them we’ve ever had,” said Guile, who has worked at the Pumpkin Roll for 18 years.

Vassar firefighters Dennis Fent, right, and Dave Hall, stopped rolling pumpkins on the M-15 hill in Vassar, and placed them in the back of a truck for transport. If pumpkins weren’t damaged on the initial trip down the hill, Pumpkin Roll workers brought them back to the top of the hill to be rolled again.

The high temperature reached about 70 degrees Saturday, proving warmer and drier than in past years. “We decided to move the event up a week in October to catch some better weather, and it worked,” Guile said. Vassar City Manager Brian Chapman rolled a pumpkin himself Saturday, and new Vassar Public Schools Superintendent Dorothy “Dot” Blackwell tossed the first pumpkin. “I think in general the new businesses in town (this year) have brought some more people to the city, but I

think when it comes to the Pumpkin Roll, the Pumpkin Roll really holds its own,” Chapman said. Visitors interviewed by The Advertiser on Saturday came from Bay City, Saginaw County, Lapeer, Clio, Deford and Brown City. “The scope is getting a little broader every time,” Guile said of the participants. More activities were added as part of the Pumpkin Roll this year, including the Zombie Walk organized by Mike More than 3,000 visitors attended the Vassar Pumpkin Roll on Saturday, the Sanders, which drew about 30 walkers wearing largest crowd in the 22-year history of the event.

MMA Story continued Continued from B1

The 34-year-old father of two has been training in MMA for about seven years, before that, he trained in Judo and JiuJitsu. "In order for me to show that my judo is effective, I use it in a cage, which is a legal way to do it," Eschtruth said. "Fighters are fighters, if you want to test yourself, then go and train and do it the right way — people will have more respect for you that way." Eschtruth happened upon martial arts thanks to a concussion he suffered after high school graduation. A four-sport athlete at Kingston, Eschtruth planned to continue his football career as a walk-on at Saginaw Valley State University. But before he got there, Eschtruth made an all-Michigan high school football team, and traveled to Australia to play in the Down Under Bowl — an annual football tournament which is the largest American football tournament of its kind outside of the United States. "I got injured, I was playing football down there and I got hurt," said Eschtruth, who suffered a concussion and was told by doctors to avoid physical contact for eight months to a year. "And I needed to do something, so I did judo at SVSU, and I've been doing it for about 12 years now. "I fell in love with it." Now, Eschtruth trains others as well. He finds time in his busy schedule to instruct at three different locales — in three different parts of the state. Despite working full-time, on third shift, at Stone Crest Assisted Living in Freeland, Eschtruth still puts in several hours a week, training himself — and training

others. "I teach almost everyday out of the week, work all night and train," Eschtruth said. "It's almost like three full-time jobs." Eschtruth, who resides in Saginaw, instructs at Che Ko Tae Kwon Do, Brett Spardella MMA in Clare and Scorpion Fit System in Brighton. Just in case Eschtruth doesn't become the next Conor McGregor, he has a back-up plan. Eschtruth received an associates degree in business management from SVSU, but plans to return to school to get a teaching degree.

Cass City man comes out on top in Week 8 of Advertiser Football Contest The tiebreaker wasn't enough to give David Barrios, of Cass City, a win in the eighth week of The Advertiser's Football Contest. He needed another stroke of luck. Barrios was one of four contestants tied with a 91 record last week, and he was one of two who chose 46 points in the tiebreaker — the total amount of points in the Reese at Cass City contest. Barrios then won a random drawing to earn the $50 prize. The final score of Reese/Cass City was 26-22. Nathan Kain, of Clearwater Beach, Florida, also had nine selections correct and chose 46 for his tiebreaker total. Dawn Currie, of Millington, and Diane Prusi, of Fairgrove, also correctly picked nine of 10 games. All four nine-win contestants incorrectly picked Hale to beat Akron-Fairgrove. There were 51 participants in last week's contest.

Unionville-Sebewaing Area 42, Vassar 0 VASSAR — The Patriots achieved a pair of milestones with their Friday night win — a first outright Greater Thumb West title since 2005 and first victory over Vassar in the programs’ history. Since entering the GTW in 2008, the Vulcans have won all eight meetings between the two, but the Patriots' Tanner Foley helped make sure the streak didn't get to nine.

The Vikings (1-7, 1-5) host Burton Madison Academy Friday.

Frankenmuth 43, Caro 8 CARO — The Tigers led 8-7 after one quarter of play, but Frankenmuth wouldn't let them in the end zone after that. Caro's Michael Graves scored on a 73-yard punt return, then ran in the subsequent two-point conversion to give the Tigers thoughts of an upset. But the Eagles went in front 22-8 at halftime, then scored three touchdowns in the third to complete the game's scoring.

Kris Roche had 14 carries for 152 yards and two touchdowns and quarterback Jared Davis added 107 yards on the ground, on nine carries, and a TD. Zach Jacobs also ran for a pair of scores, part of his 43 yards rushing. Davis was 3-of8 passing for 65 yards and a 32-yard touchdown, all of which went to Grant Bronner. Hunter Schluckebier led the Eagles with seven total tackles while Dan Stone and Josh Moore contributed five each. D.J. Daniels had 23 yards rushing, on eight attempts, for the Tigers, who were led defensively by Michael Hobson and Graves' eight total tackles apiece. Kyle Fetting had an interception for Caro.

Marlette 47, Memphis 6 MEMPHIS — The Red Raiders rolled and picked up their first win of the season. Marlette led 13-0 after one quarter and 34-0 at halftime of the Greater Thumb East affair. Chorben Chisholm led the way for the Red Raiders with 214 yards rushing, on just 10 attempts, and four touchdowns. Marcus Armstrong added a pair of touchdowns, on a 19-yard pass from quarterback Ethan McKenney and on an interception return. Dylan McLemore scored Marlette's last touchdown on a five-yard run. Chisholm also led the defense with

nine total tackles. The Red Raiders (1-8, 1-4) host Armada Friday in Week 9.

Millington 48, Bridgeport 8 MILLINGTON — The Cardinals, the No. 4 team in Division 6, led 22-0 after one quarter and 35-0 at halftime of the Tri-Valley Conference East game. Kohlton Sherman touched the ball just six times, but he found the end zone on four of them, rushing three times for 100 yards and two scores and catching three passes for 97 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Brady Payne added 86 yards rushing, on 14 attempts, and a touchdown. The Cardinals other two touchdowns were scored on interception returns — both by Drew Germain.

The Cardinals (7-1, 5-1) finished in second place in the TVC-East and host Chatham Ursuline College, from Canada, Friday.

Dryden 50, Mayville 8 DRYDEN — Dryden turned the tables on the Wildcats, avenging an early season loss. Mayville beat the Cardinals 36-14 on Sept. 16, but that didn't matter much in Week 8 as Dryden rolled to a 38-8 halftime lead. One good thing for the Wildcats — the earlier game counts towards the North Central Thumb League rankings while last week's game does not. Quarterback Jared Hoag scored Mayville's lone touchdown on a twoyard run, than added the two-point conversion on a QB sneak. He finished with 118 yards passing, on 9-of-19 attempts, and ran for 53 on 13 carries. Daniel Redford had two catches for 53 yards while Nick Phillips added three receptions for 49 yards. Ben Hulley and Zach Lefler led the Wildcats defense respectively with 7.5 and 6.5 tackles. Mayville (3-5, 2-2) hosts rival Kingston Friday in the first matchup of the two since 2011.

health Coping with the side effects of cancer treatments Affecting people all around the world, cancer does not discriminate based on gender, age or ethnicity. A cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatments can be overwhelming. Medical teams work together with patients and families to choose the best treatment plans. But while treatments are often highly effective, coping with both the emotional and physical side effects of cancer treatments is a big part of winning the fight against this disease. The National Cancer Institute says cancer treatments cause side effects because treatments not only affect cancerous cells, but also healthy tissues or organs. Side effects vary from person to person, even among those who get the same treatment. Side effects are particularly common among recipients of chemotherapy. According to The Mesothelioma Center, fatigue is the most frequently reported side effect of chemotherapy, affecting up to 96 percent of cancer patients. Nausea and vomiting also occur in 70 to 80 percent of chemo patients. Cancer patients dealing with side effects like nausea, vomiting and fatigue can focus their efforts on feeling the best they can despite these effects. Nausea can occur during both radiation and chemo treatments. Patients undergoing treatments for cancers of the brain may also experience nausea, says the American Cancer Society. Patients can discuss alternative treatment plans with their

physicians if nausea becomes overwhelming. Furthermore, there are medications designed to staunch the feelings of nausea that may help alleviate vomiting spells. Patients should always speak with their cancer care teams about how nausea or vomiting is affecting them, especially if it’s impacting how much nutrition they are able to receive. Fatigue is another common concern. MD Anderson Cancer Center says that fatigue is treatable, but many patients fail to discuss fatigue with their doctors. Cancerrelated fatigue can have a trickle-down effect that leads to sleeping disorders; emotional distress, including depression; and added stress. A healthy lifestyle can help fight fatigue, and such a lifestyle includes healthy eating and exercise. Exercising while undergoing cancer treatments can be challenging, but even a 20-minute walk during the day can help reduce stress and increase energy. People experiencing fatigue should resist the urge to nap too frequently. One 30-minute nap may be all you need to recharge. In addition, maintain a fatigue journal, which can help doctors identify potential fatigue triggers. Emotional effects of cancer treatment can be overwhelming, and some patients may not be eager to share such side effects with their physicians. But seeking help for depression, anxiety, fears, and any of the other myriad

feelings that cancer and its treatments can produce can make a world of difference. Trained therapists who specialize in helping cancer patients routinely work with individuals to assist them in coping. When emotional health is in check, it’s much easier to focus on physical health. Cancer treatments may come with side effects. But these effects can often be mitigated so patients can direct their energy and focus to fighting the disease more effectively.

Fatigue is one of the most common side effects of cancer treatment. But cancer patients should know that fatigue is treatable.

Health problems that can Health benefits of meditation affect premature babies The period of time before a child is born is an exciting one for expecting parents. As mothers' due dates draw nearer, that anticipation only grows. But some babies arrive early, quickly turning parents' excitement into anxiety. Thankfully, according to March of Dimes®, an organization dedicated to preventing birth defects and infant mortality, continuing advancements in medical care means even babies born very prematurely are now more likely to survive than ever before. The following health conditions are some problems that parents of premature babies should be on the lookout for, alerting their health care providers about any conditions their babies have. · Apnea: Apnea is a temporary cessation of breathing, and some premature babies may experience pauses in breathing for 20 seconds or more. Apnea may be accompanied by a slow heart rate. · Respiratory distress syndrome: The March of Dimes notes that respiratory distress syndrome, or RDS, is most common in babies born before 34 weeks of pregnancy. RDS occurs in infants whose lungs have not yet fully developed. The U.S. National Library of Medicine cites lack of surfactant, a slippery substance in the lungs, as the main cause of RDS. Surfactant, which is present in fully developed lungs, helps the lungs fill with air and keeps the air sacs from deflating. · Intraventricular hemorrhage: Stanford Children's Health notes that intraventricular hemorrhage, or IVH, is most common in premature babies with very low birthweights, especially those weighing less than 3 pounds, 5 ounces at birth. IVH is bleeding inside or around the ventricles,

which are the spaces in the brain containing the cerebral spinal fluid. It is unclear why IVH occurs, but it may be linked to the fragile, immature and easily ruptured blood vessels in premature babies' brains. · Patent ductus arteriosus: Patent ductus arteriosus, or PDA, is a problem related to the baby's heart, namely an unclosed hole in the aorta. According to the American Heart Association, before a child is born, the fetus's blood does not need to go to the lungs to get oxygenated. The ductus arteriosus is a hole in the aorta that allows the blood to skip circulation to the lungs. This hole is supposed to close when the baby is born so the blood can receive oxygen in the lungs. When it does not close, the baby may experience difficulty breathing or even heart failure. · Necrotizing enterocolitis: The Children's Hospital Los Angeles notes that necrotizing enterocolitis, often referred to as NEC, affects the intestines of nearly 1 in 10 infants born prematurely. NEC occurs when the wall of the intestine is invaded by bacteria, resulting in local infection and inflammation that may end up destroying the wall of the intestine. That destruction can cause the intestine to become perforated and lead to the spillage of stool into the infant's abdomen, which can cause infection and possibly even death. The March of Dimes notes that NEC sometimes occurs two to three weeks after a premature birth and may produce symptoms such as problems feeding, a swollen belly and diarrhea. Learn more about premature babies at www.marchofdimes.org.

Why dental hygiene is essential for overall health The importance of maintaining clean teeth and healthy gums goes beyond having fresh breath and a white smile. Many people are surprised to discover that oral hygiene plays an integral role in overall health. Research indicates that oral health mirrors the condition of the body as a whole. Also, regular dental visits can alert dentists about overall health and pinpoint if a person is at a risk for chronic disease. An oral health check-up also may be the first indication of a potential health issue not yet evident to a general medical doctor. Heart disease According to the Academy of General Dentistry, there is a distinct relationship between periodontal disease and conditions such as heart disease and stroke. Joint teams at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom and the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, Ireland, found that people with bleeding gums from poor dental hygiene could have an increased risk of heart disease. Bacteria from the mouth is able to enter the bloodstream when bleeding gums are present. That bacteria can stick to platelets and subsequently form blood clots. This interrupts the flow of blood to the heart and may trigger a heart attack. Brushing and

flossing twice daily and rinsing with mouthwash can remove bacteria and keep gums healthy. Facial pain The Office of the Surgeon General says infections of the gums that support the teeth can lead to facial and oral pain. Gingivitis, which is an early stage of gum disease, as well as advanced gum disease, affects more than 75 percent of the American population. Dental decay can lead to its own share of pain. Maintaining a healthy mouth can fend off decay and infections, thereby preventing pain. Pancreatic cancer In 2007, the Harvard School of Public Health reported a link between gum disease and pancreatic cancer. In the ongoing study, 51,000 men were followed and data was collected beginning in 1986. The Harvard researchers found that men with a history of gum disease had a 64 percent increased risk of pancreatic cancer compared with men who had never had gum disease. The greatest risk for pancreatic cancer among this group was in men with recent tooth loss. However, the study was unable to find links between other types of oral health problems, such as tooth decay, and pancreatic cancer.

Alzheimer's disease Various health ailments, including poor oral health, have been linked to a greater risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. In 2010, after reviewing 20 years' worth of data, researchers from New York University concluded that there is a link between gum inflammation and Alzheimer's disease. Follow-up studies from researchers at the University of Central Lancashire in the United Kingdom compared brain samples from 10 living patients with Alzheimer's to samples from 10 people who did not have the disease. Data indicated that a bacterium - Porphyromonas gingivalis - was present in the Alzheimer's brain samples but not in the samples from the brains of people who did not have Alzheimer's. P. gingivalis is usually associated with chronic gum disease. As a result of the study, experts think that the bacteria can move via nerves in the roots of teeth that connect directly with the brain or through bleeding gums. These health conditions are just a sampling of the relationship between oral health and overall health. Additional connections also have been made and continue to be studied.

Water essential to human health Many adults have had the virtues of drinking enough water extolled on them since childhood. Though recommendations as to how much water a person should drink each day have fluctuated over the years, it's still safe to say that drinking a significant amount of water every day is essential for your health. Water keeps the body healthy in a number of ways. But the body loses water in a number of ways as well, each of which is part of normal human function. For instance, a body loses water when a person breathes, sweats, urinates or has a bowel movement. The body must replace this lost fluid in order to stay healthy and avoid dehydration. In addition to fending off dehydration, water helps the body flush out wastes and maintain a healthy body temperature while reducing the risk of developing kidney stones or becoming constipated. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, water also helps lubricate and cushion joints and protects the spinal cord and other sensitive tissues. The body needs water every day, but there are certain instances when the body will likely need more water than usual. If you spend ample time in especially hot climates, your body will need more water, just as it might during periods of physical activity. In addition, your body will need more water when suffering from certain ailments or conditions, including fever, diarrhea or vomiting. Though many people feel drinking caffeinated beverages, including coffee and sodas, dehydrate the body, experts say moderate caffeine consumption won't dehydrate the body. A 2000 study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that healthy people who consume moderate amounts of caffeine don't lose more fluid than those people

who abstain from caffeine. Overconsumption of caffeinated beverages might prove problematic, but moderate consumption can provide the body with the fluids it needs without causing harm. It's best to consult a physician if you suspect you aren't getting enough fluids, but there are also some indicators men and women can notice on their own. One such indicator is the color of your urine, which will be clear or pale yellow if your body is getting enough fluids. Urine that is dark yellow indicates the body needs more water. Constipation or hard bowel movements may also be the result of a body that isn't getting enough fluids. While it's true there is such a thing as too much water, it is rare that a person drinks too much water. Endurance athletes are most susceptible if they only drink water during competitions. That's because consuming too much water will dilute the amount of sodium in the body, creating an imbalance that can cause confusion, seizures and possibly even coma. That's why many endurance athletes drink a sports drink that contains sodium, sugar and electrolytes during competitions. But even athletes who will be competing or exercising for more than an hour might want to choose a sports drink instead of just water to

protect themselves and avoid an imbalance. Many people find they don't drink enough water by accident. One way to combat that is to bring a bottle of water with you wherever you go. Another way is to drink water throughout the day at your office, which also gives you an opportunity to get up and stretch your legs over the course of the day. If you find water especially bland, add a slice of lemon or lime to give it more flavor. Drinking a sufficient amount of water each day helps the body function properly and fight off a host of ailments.
