Daley tops Senate race

BAY CITY – Kevin Daley is back serving the state of Michigan, just in a different office. The Republican and former 82nd District state representative defeated Bay County Clerk Cynthia Luczak to win the 31st District state Senate seat in Tuesday’s general election. Daley had 63,396 votes to Luczak’s 41,832. In Tuscola County, Daley won, 14,545 to 7,059. The 31st district also includes Lapeer and Bay counties. “I was pretty satisfied, obviously,” Daley said. “I felt pretty comfortable that we had done a good job through the campaign and that we were doing pretty well in the district, especially in Bay County, which was my opponent’s home. We did respectively well in Bay County and did really, really well in Tuscola and Lapeer. That’s what we needed to do to win, so we were very happy with how it turned out.” See DALEY A12


Tax hikes pass in Arbela, Novesta, but not Denmark Township By Tom Gilchrist Reporter

Voters in Tuscola County’s Denmark Township on Tuesday rejected proposed propertytax increases to pay for a new township hall and to finance road improvements, though tax increases passed in Arbela Township and Novesta Township. “I became township clerk in 2011, and I’ve been working on a plan since then, but today it got shot down,” said Charles Heinlein, Denmark Township supervisor and former township clerk, after voters defeated a 0.85mill, 10-year tax proposal that would have built and furnished a new township hall.

Election results in recall of trio of Juniata Township officials By John Schneider Editor

Juniata Township Board of Trustees meetings will look a little different following Tuesday’s recall election. Three members of the township board – Supervisor Neil Jackson, Treasurer Andrew Stark and Clerk Heidi Stark – faced a recall Tuesday and each was defeated at the polls. Supervisor candidate Garrett Tetil defeated Jackson 516294; Brenda Bigham received more votes (411) than Heidi Stark (280) and candidate Renae Thornton (122) for clerk; and Judy Cockerill won the treasurer position with 441 votes to Andrew Stark’s 259 and candidate Michael Warchuck’s 115. In February, paperwork containing over 200 signatures for each of the three was delivered to Tuscola County Clerk Jodi Fetting, putting into motion the potential of a recall vote for the trio in the May 8 Tuscola County election. However, each of the three appealed the recall, which pushed the possibility of a recall vote to the November general election. A fourth Juniata board member,




Trustee Elaine Schunn, was named in a recall petition, but the Tuscola County Election Commission dismissed Schunn’s recall paperwork saying it didn’t contain the proper language for consideration. The fifth member of the Juniata board, Trustee Brenda Wachner, was not named in recall filings. In December, Tetil told The Advertiser that the recall is due to the Juniata Township Planning Commission’s handling of a special land use permit (SLUP) request submitted by NextEra Energy Resources L.L.C. for an upcoming project, called Pegasus Wind Energy Center. At the time, the Pegasus


project called for the construction of 63 wind turbines – 32 in Fairgrove Township and 31 in Juniata Township. In January, the Juniata Township Planning Commission approved NextEra’s SLUP application, to the dismay of many Juniata residents. In Juniata Township, although planning commission members are not susceptible to recall, they are appointed by members of the board of trustees. If board members are recalled, new board members could replace members of the planning commission. See JUNIATA A6

Pot proposal fails in county vote

Incumbents Mitchell, Kildee to continue representing Tuscola County in Washington

By Mark Haney Staff Writer

LANSING – Starting sometime later this month, marijuana use will be legal in Michigan. The ballot measure passed, 56 percent to 44 percent, in Tuesday’s general election. Once the election totals are certified, which should happen later this month, the new law will go into effect. The measure failed in Tuscola County, however, with 10,026 voting in favor and 12,178 against. The measure will allow adults over 21 to possess, grow and use small amounts of marijuana legally. Adults also will be able to grow up to 12 total marijuana plants at home, possess 2.5 ounces in public and store 10 ounces in their residence – in addition to what they grow legally. Portions of the new law allowing for licensed businesses to grow, process and sell cannabis to consumers will come online over the next year. State regulators will issue business licenses for cultivators, processors, testing labs, secure transporters, retail outlets and

cannabis businesses. Cities and towns will be able to regulate or ban commercial marijuana activity. “The Proposal 1 campaign boiled down into one of fact versus fear,” Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Spokesperson (File photo) Josh Hovey said The Station, a marijuana provisioning center on in a press release. “The data from the M-15 in Vassar, currently provides cannabis-related products to those with medical needs.

Green wins House seat By Mark Haney

CARO – The Green legacy in state government continues. Phil Green, son of former 84th District state representative and current 81st District state senator Mike Green, was elected to represent the 84th District – made up of Huron and Tuscola counties – in Tuesday’s general election. Green, a Republican, defeated Democrat William Shoop, 63, of Vassar, a retired teacher, 23,214 to 11,418. Green beat Shoop in Tuscola County, 14,152 to 7,421. “I am humbled to be selected to represent the people in the 84th district of Huron and Tuscola counties,” Green said in an email. “The confidence that the residents of the 84th have placed in me amazes me! I promise to go to Lansing to work for our district and to fight for the forgotten peninsula.” “I was not totally surprised by the outcome but I was a little surprised by the margin,” Shoop said. “I hope Mr. Green is going to take into account there are a lot of citizens who do value public education and health care and that he truly represents all of us in Huron and Tuscola counties. “I wish him the best of luck. We’re going to need some leadership and I hope he provides it for us.” Green defeated Matt Bierlein and Dean

The following statement from Battel was first published by The Post on Wednesday. “While reporting The news, journalists must put their opinions aside and focus on facts. I was not reporting the news when I made derogatory statements about Mr. James and his campaign. That was 100 percent my opinion, and I did not expect that it would be for public consumption. I obviously have regrets and am embarrassed that it was released. “But while doing my job, which was to gather and report the facts, I did not let my opinions interfere with telling the truth. I proved that in every news article I wrote for the Huron Daily Tribune.� Battel left the message on Monday afternoon. Later that evening, the Tribune issued a statement explaining that Battel’s

“Michigan is now the second largest state in the country to legalize marijuana for adults,� Marijuana Policy Project deputy director Matt Schweich said in a press release. “This is a victory for sensible marijuana laws that serve the interests of public health and public safety, and the Marijuana Policy Project is proud to have helped lead this campaign.� “Obviously the results of today’s election were not what we hoped for,� Scott Greenlee, president of Healthy and Productive Michigan said in a statement. “It is important to note that more Michiganders voted no on Proposal 18.1 than on the other two proposals. While our side lost tonight, it is important to recognize the level of responsibility that now rests on the shoulders of those who have voted Yes.

“I would like to be the first to remind those who voted Yes of the heavy responsibility that comes with this new policy. By legalizing recreational marijuana we are giving permission to the product everywhere throughout our great state. Now is a time for vigilance among citizens – in every community.� Greenlee also indicated Tuesday’s vote wasn’t the final word on the subject. “Our committee will urge and support local communities who have a desire to opt out and actively explore all legislative, policy, and legal options,� he said. “We will continue to educate Michigan citizens on the harms of marijuana commercialization.�

Several Juniata residents expressed that they wanted the planning commission to issue a moratorium to take more time to look at the SLUP before making a decision on whether to approve or deny it.

A8 — Saturday, November 10, 2018, The Advertiser

Celebrating 150 Years The Tuscola County Advertiser celebrates its 150th birthday in 2018. To commemorate, The Advertiser will feature stories retyped word-for-word, advertisements and photos from a different year in each Saturday edition.

This article was in the Nov. 1, 1978 edition of The Advertiser, when it was published weekly on Wednesday. Stories in that edition, like this one on a Vassar City Council recall vote, were focused on elections held 40 years ago.

3 councilmen recalled; Vassar split on drain VASSAR – Three city councilmen were narrowly recalled by voters here Tuesday, indicating that Vassar residents are split right down the middle on the Moore Drain issue. Council members Mayor Harold Lane, John Miller and Keith Moore were recalled by margins ranging from 1 to 29 votes. George “Bill” Clark, Jr. was retained by voters. All four were named on the recall ballot for their decision to recommend continuance of the controversial $2.3 million drain renovation project in the city of Vassar. Lane was recalled by the narrowest of margins – 518 to 517. Miller was recalled 531 to 502 and voters revoked Moore 531 to 504. Clark was retained 531 to 500.

Clark also ran for county commissioner in District No. 6, but was defeated by incumbent Bob Russell. So Clark will remain on the Vassar City Council. Voters in Vassar also elected councilmen to fill two open seats. Incumbent Jim Fox, who voted “no” on the drain project goahead and was therefore not named on the recall ballot, polled 475 votes (24 percent), the highest in the field of five. He’ll serve a three-year term. That would seem to indicate that Vassar residents are in favor of abandoning the project. But Dr. James Hilligan, who has publicly supported the drain renovation, finished second at 458 votes (23.5 percent) and he’ll serve a two-

year term. The incumbent Moore finished third with 388 votes (20 percent); recall chairman Walter Pasch polled 327 votes (17 percent); and anti-drain candidate Thomas Asperger received 295 tallies (15 percent). Fox, Hilligan and Moore received heavy support from voting precincts No. 3 and No. 4. Pasch and Asperger got relatively greater support in No. 1 and No. 2. On the recall, No. 1 and No. 2 voted in favor of all four councilmen in every case except one (No. 2 voted “no” on Miller. Precincts No. 3 and No. 4 voted “no” on the recall on all four candidates. A special election to fill the two empty council seats will be held.

This election summary appeared on the front page of the Nov. 8, 1978 edition of The Advertiser. The race for 40th Circuit Court judge is notable for the election of Patrick Joslyn, who would hold the position for 33 years before retiring in January 2012.

Recount demand, races liven election

Tuscola County voters, spurred by a number of controversial state proposals and numerous local office races, defied early projections and turned out enmasse for Tuesday’s colorful off-year general election. Unofficially, 61.2 percent of the county’s eligible voters cast their ballots in Tuesday’s election which represented 17,438 of the 28,500 voters. This means that only 11,062 shied away from the polling places. Election experts had forecasted a 50 percent turnout. CLOSE RACE As expected, the most interesting contest was the race for the newly-created 40th circuit judgeship which was won by Tuscola County prosecutor Patrick Joslyn who defeated district judge John Spires with 51.6 percent of the total vote of Lapeer and Tuscola counties. Joslyn’s biggest support came from his own county which backed him 60 percent. He also captured 44 percent of Lapeer’s vote. Elsewhere at the local level, most contests went as expected with incumbents winning re-election without too much difficulty. The lone exception at the county-level was in Commissioner District No. 6 where incumbent Bob Russell edged challenger Bill Clark by only two percentage points. Tuesday’s election was not without its controversy. Possible recounts are expected to be requested in two townships and the city of Vassar where voting ran extremely close.


RECOUNTS DEMANDED Three recalled city councilmen may be expected to demand recounts. In Vassar, Harold Lane was recalled by only a one vote margin, while councilmen John Miller and Keith Moore were ousted by margins of 29 and 24 votes. MALFUNCTION! A malfunction of the computer punch card machine has prompted a recount request by Republican Letitia Tarrant who lost by a 2 to 1 margin to incumbent Ken Kennedy. Losing township candidates are also expected to demand the recount. The problem reportedly was created when the machine began bending the punch card ballots, possibly resulting in voting errors. The probable recount involves a clerk candidate in Novesta Township who lost by only 3 votes. DEMS GAIN SEATS Another interesting highlight of the township election is the fact that Democrats gained two supervisorships, both in Watertown and Ellington, and won two Republican seats for clerk and treasurer of Novesta Township.

Tuscola County voters, with few exceptions, followed the pattern of voters state-wide. Local electors stayed with the state trend in approving proposals B, C, D, E (close and questionable as of press time), G, K, and M, and voted with the state trend to reject proposals A, H and J. The only deviation involved Proposal R (Railroad bonding) which county residents favored while the majority of the state shot it down. County voters also endorsed governor Milliken, secretary of state Richard Austin, attorney general Frank Kelly, but differed by endorsing GOP incumbent senator Bob Griffin while most of Michigan elected Democrat Carl Levin. LEGISLATIVE CONTESTS In local legislative races, voters reinstated all incumbents.

Small town times two: New Reese Subway proprietor buys into rural business ownership By John Schneider Editor

REESE – Susan Reese may live in Saginaw, but she is certainly familiar with the pace of smaller communities. After five years of owing the Subway restaurant in St. Charles, Reese in July purchased a second Subway franchise, in the similar-sized village of Reese. “(Reese) is kind of like St. Charles, it’s a small-town atmosphere and I really like that,” Reese said. “I like knowing my customers and building relationships. I haven’t got to know everyone yet, but I’m working on it.” That shouldn’t be too difficult for Reese, who said she isn’t an “owner-owner,” but a “worker-owner” who spends Monday through Friday, and some weekends, building submarine sandwiches and wraps for customers at the restaurant at 2015 Gates St. Before purchasing the Reese Subway – the village’s only fast food restaurant – Reese spent her days helping customers at the St. Charles restaurant. She has been a part of the company for eight years, the first three as a consultant and the last five as owner-operator.

“As a consultant, I traveled to different Subways to write reports on them,” Reese said. “After meeting with a lot of owners I decided ‘I can do this.’ That’s when I took the plunge and got my first Subway. I built that one up and decided ‘OK, it’s time for a second one.’” Reese, who retained the entire crew after purchasing the restaurant, said that once she gets a manager trained, she will return to spending time at each of her two Subways. Reese is married with two 20-somethingaged sons. She has been in the restaurant business her whole life. “I’ve opened up probably eight restaurants all over the United States,” Reese said. “Two of them in North Carolina, in South Carolina, Virginia, Colorado, Florida, plus probably about five or six in Michigan. “I love doing that, I love being in the restaurant business.” The Reese Subway is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. In addition to subs, soups, pizza and wraps, Subway also offers a breakfast menu.

Denmark Township voters turned down the plan for the new hall, 928 to 461. Had the issue passed, it would have raised about $91,000 annually to construct and furnish a hall to replace the existing hall – a former public school built in 1923 along M-15 in Richville. Wheelchair users can’t reach the bathrooms in the building, which are in the basement. Though a chairlift can transport a visitor from the entryway up one floor to the building’s top floor, it doesn’t take visitors to the basement, where Heinlein maintains an office. The building offers only one entrance/ exit point, and utility costs are a problem, according to Heinlein, who noted “I can’t heat it, I can’t cool it, and the insurance (provider) wants steel casement doors in the place.” Denmark Township voters, by a count of 717 to 671, also rejected a proposed 1-mill, six-year tax increase to maintain and improve roads. The proposal sought to raise about $107,000 annually. “I guess (voters) are happy with our roads in our township,” said Nancy Heinlein, the Denmark Township clerk and Charles Heinlein’s wife. “When you can pave only one mile of road a year, and you have 46 miles of roads to cover, eventually they’re going to turn to gravel. It’s very expensive to do one mile of road. We’ll have to go to alternative sources such as chip-and-seal, or whatever.” Voters in Arbela Township approved property-tax increases Tuesday to buy fire equipment, and to repair and rebuild roads. Residents voted 756 to 478 to approve a tax raising about $34,000 annually to buy new and/or reconditioned fire equipment. Elected leaders in Arbela and Millington townships have approved the $371,275 purchase of a new fire truck from Rosenbauer Firefighting Technology. Millington Township leaders said Arbela Township is responsible for 40 percent of the cost. Arbela voters’ approval of the 0.5mill, 5-year property tax for firefighting equipment “will help offset some of those costs,” said Joe White, Arbela Township supervisor and a member of the board overseeing the Millington Arbela Fire

Department. “I think folks recognize the need,” White said. “We have a pretty good fire department and the department has the (medical) first responders, and they touch a lot of people over time, so I think that’s been positive.” Dave Russell, Millington Arbela Fire Department chief, expects the new fire truck to arrive in the fall of 2019, and said the truck should serve as a firefighting vehicle for 30 or more years. “We did a lot of research, and a lot of meetings took place, and I commend the fire department on the job that they did,” said Sharon Keinath, Millington Township treasurer. Arbela residents also voted, 697 to 530, to approve a new 1-mill, five-year tax to repair and rebuild roads. Residents also pay a separate 1-mill tax for road work in the township. “Just between them and us, we just have to keep whackin’ away to improve the roads,” White said. “They just need a lot of help, and it’s getting so expensive anymore to repave a mile of asphalt.” The new road-work tax, and the existing one, each raise about $67,000 annually for road improvements. Novesta Township residents voted 321 to 230 to approve a 1-mill, one-year property tax to buy roadside mowing equipment and machinery. The tax raises $36,000. “The (Tuscola County) road commission only mows the county roads, and in our township those roads would be Cemetery Road, Deckerville Road and Dodge Road,” said Novesta Township Supervisor Chad Daniels. “They’ve always done those roads, and we’ve always done (other) roads, and quite bluntly, our equipment is old.” Novesta Township pays Bob Dickson an

Denmark Township voters also turned down a proposed tax increase to maintain and improve township roads.

hourly rate to mow grass and weeds along township roads. The township has paid for the work a couple times each year, “but at that pace our equipment, being where it’s at, isn’t going to last long and if that equipment dies on us and we don’t do it, I’m smart enough to know people are going to complain about it because they’re used to it,” said Daniels. Daniels said he sent a letter to township residents saying “I don’t care how you vote, but the township board has interpreted it this way: If you vote yes, we’ll continue mowing two times a year, and if you vote no, we’re going to cut it back to one time per year until the equipment dies.”


When asked if brush is cut in ditches, Daniels said Dickson “got down there pretty good with it here lately, because it hadn’t been done really well over the past few years, and he really was aggressive the past couple years, and (cut brush) real deep, knowing that it would take us longer, but once you got it down to a manageable size, it would be easier from that point on.” Voters approved renewals of existing property-tax issues Tuesday in Elmwood Township for firefighting service, and in Koylton Township for improving and maintaining roads.

Kingston claims first ever Regional champs: You wouldn’t like volleyball regional title

USA when it’s angry By A dam S mith Sports Editor

BAD AXE — Unionville-Sebewaing Area hasn’t lost many matches, let alone sets, this volleyball season. But on the rare occasion when the Patriots have let a set slip, it’s angered them to a point where their response has grown to be just as predictable as it’s been dominant. After winning the first two sets with their Greater Thumb West rival Reese in Thursday’s Division 3 regional final at Bad Axe High School, the Rockets gained some momentum back with a win of their own.

You always want a better finish than the one you had last year, unless you’re the state champs. In the case of Kingston’s volleyball team, it’s a high bar to look to reach with the Cardinals already making a deep run last year to the Division 4 regional finals, but that’s exactly what they accomplished with a five-set tiebreaker win over Merrill for their program’s first ever regional title and subsequent quarterfinal berth. Scores were 25-19, 21-25, 17-25, 25-22, 15-12. “As a coach, I had a regional title as a goal in the back of my mind. I didn’t tell my team that until this week,” said Kingston coach Beth Hunter. “I wanted to make sure we stayed in the moment and took care of business every night.

“I’ve been around this program for a long time as a player, as a junior varsity coach and now as the varsity coach, and to have a moment like that last night is such an indescribable feeling,” she added. “I love seeing hard work pay off, and this team has given me everything they’ve had all season. Seeing the emotion from this team (after winning the regional) made everything worth it.” Still unbeaten this year at 20-0, Kingston advances to play Southfield Christian in a 7 p.m. Tuesday quarterfinal at Burton Bendle High School. “I had no clue we’d go undefeated in the regular season, but this group always manages to exceed my expectations,” said Hunter of what’s another first for the program.

Defending state champs hold off North Branch for second straight season By Adam Smith Sports Editor

PONTIAC — For the second straight season, North Branch had the “privelege” of facing Pontiac Notre Dame Prep in the Division 2 volleyball playoffs for what Broncos’ coach Jim Fish has referred to as an unofficial state title match. “We knew this was a state-championship caliber match, and they knew it too,” said Fish. “It’s just for two years in a row now it’s been played at the regional level.” The second-ranked Fighting Irish are the defending state champs, and ended the Broncos’ season in the regional round on Thursday at Notre Dame Prep just as they did in last year’s high-profile meeting between the perennial state powerhouses. Scores were 25-20, 25-19, 25-23. The match featured three of the state’s 10 Miss Volleyball finalists: seniors Allyson Severance of North Branch and Madeline Chinn and Natalie Risi of Notre Dame Prep. Severance will continue her playing career on scholarship at Miami (Ohio), while Chinn has committed to Purdue and Risi to play for Ball State. “Those two players are amazing,” noted Fish of the Division I bound Chinn and Risi. “The other kids we thought we could attack a little bit played pretty well for them too. “We know we’re probably the second or third best team in Division 2, but one of us had to lose.” Max Preps ranks NDP (62-5) as the 25th best team in the country. It’s won 52 consecutive matches to give credence to the claim. “We went in believing we could beat them and were very competitive,” said Fish, whose team ends the season ranked fourth in the state. “Obviously, we knew we had to play above even what we were capable of playing, and at times we were able to do that.” The Broncos were within two points of

their opponent at 21-19 in the first set, but, “good teams pull away at the end, and that’s what they did,” said Fish of NDP setting the tone. Highlighting the North Branch side of Thursday’s match, the last of her highly decorated all-state career, was Severance with 21 kills on 41 attempts for a plus-.500 hitting percentage to go with seven digs and two aces. “To hit .500 for the match against a team like that’s amazing,” said Fish of Severance. “They isolated on her, and she still showed up and played as well as she has all season long for us.” In what was Reese Ruhlman’s second match back from an injury that sidelined her for most of the season, she hit .428 with six kills on 14 attempts. “We did some good things, with just four hitting errors in the entire match,” said Fish. “We had our kids in the right spots, but when you’re a 6-foot-3 kid going to the Big Ten (like Chinn), they just hit right over top of you.” Allison Bryce added seven kills for North Branch (58-9), Hannah Bader had 12 digs, Faith Kotur had 10 digs and Autumn Deshetsky had 30 assists and seven digs. Fish will lose 11 seniors off this year’s team to graduation. “It’s going to be a little different for us next year,” admitted Fish. “You don’t lose 11 seniors and not take at least something of a step back, but we’ve been top five in the state every year for the last 12 years. The kids we’ve got coming back will work hard.” To reach the finals, North Branch earned a 25-14, 25-7, 25-16 Tuesday semifinal win over Detroit Country Day. Severance had 13 kills and nine digs for the Broncos, Bryce had nine kills in just 14 attempts, Deshetsky had 31 assists, Bader added eight digs and three aces and MacKenzie DeLong contributed four kills.

Best Millington run since ‘03 ends with regional loss to USA By Adam Smith Sports Editor

BAD AXE — You wouldn’t have known Millington was making its first regional volleyball appearance since 2003 with how the Cardinals showed themselves against Unionville-Sebewaing Area in Tuesday’s Division 3 semifinals at Bad Axe High School. The state sixth-ranked Patriots won the opening set 25-18, but were reduced to no margin for error in winning sets two and three both 28-26. “The fact we lost in three sets doesn’t really tell the whole picture,” explained first-year Millington coach Michelle

Bouck. “We had game point once each in sets two and three.” Kaitlyn Ill had 21 kills and 11 digs for the Cardinals, Addi Cooper had 41 assists and 14 digs, Grace Kowitz had seven kills and three blocks, Erin Schwab had five kills and nine digs, Kate Cooper had six kills and seven digs, Nevaeh Hendricks had five kills and two blocks and Darrien Roberts picked up 11 digs. Millington’s efforts this year gave a great lift to the direction of the program. “It was a good feeling to win districts and get to regionals. It’s something I knew these kids were capable of all year, and their effort was great,” said Bouck, who loses just four seniors to graduation.

Conversely, Bouck said it was tough to see a season with so much promise end a bit sooner than the upstart Cardinals would’ve liked. “It was tough for the girls, especially our seniors, knowing it was their last opportunity to take to the volleyball court as a Millington Cardinal,” said Bouck, herself a former Cardinals’ player. “That set in for a few of them after the match, but you end your season with a loss unless Become a Member Today

you’re the state champion, and that’s just the reality of high school sports although it doesn’t make it any easier.” Another minor disappointment for Millington was falling a win short of their school-record 42 wins. “The girls really wanted it, but it would’ve taken beating USA to do that,” said Bouck. “We gave it a great shot and came close; you can’t ask for anything more than 2826, 28-26 (in sets two and three).”

Worst-to-first turnaround sees sports editor win Pigskin Prophets It took a year for second-year Advertiser sports editor Adam Smith to get up to speed, but his reward for doing so was a win of this year’s Pigskin P r o p h e t s football picking contest. After finishing last among the sevenperson panel in 2017, Smith took lessons learned from his shortcomings and put them to good use. However, he saw a seven-game lead in the contest with three weeks to go reduced to one by its completion, as two-time defending Pigskin Prophets champ, Let’s Talk Sports

radio personality Scott Bolsby, battled with a champion’s valor. Smith finished 111-32, Bolsby was second at 110-33, Chris Wilcox of Let’s Talk Sports followed in third at 107-36, Advertiser editor John Schneider was fourth at 10340, Advertiser Sports Layout Designer Jess Zieroff and guest picker Roy “Bub” Armstrong tied for fifth at 101-42 and Let’s Talk Sports’ Christian Selich was seventh with a mark of 9845. Wilcox won the final week of the Pigskin Prophets with an impressive 13-1 mark.

Gary Thompson said that with his team now done for the season, he hopes USA can continue its run to at least Battle Creek, site of the semifinals and finals. It won’t be much of a stretch for him to cheer for the Patriots, he said, as it’s certainly something he’ll be doing for both his daughter and Zimmer in their post high-school careers at SVSU. “It’s definitely going to be better rooting for her than against her,” said Gary Thompson of Zimmer. “Teresa’s a good coach with a good team,” he added. “We hope to beat them every time, but when we leave the court, both teams have good kids with good people running their programs. I hope they do well the rest of the way.” The Patriots and Green Devils have faced off twice this year, splitting a twoset affair in pool play at the Brown City invitational with USA winning a twoset, pool-play match at the CroswellLexington invitational. “They’ve got a great hitter in Kendal Muxlow and a great setter, but I think we’ve got a couple more guns we can go to,” said Rose. “Our only losses are to Division 1 and 2 schools. “We’re a legit team that’s going to work hard to get where it wants to go.” USA advanced to the finals with a 2518, 28-26, 28-26 victory over Millington in Tuesday’s semifinals. Reese earned its way into the finals with a 25-11, 2516, 25-19 Tuesday decision over Byron. Zimmer had 13 kills and 13 digs in the semis for the Patriots, Williamson had 11 kills, Allyson Kemp had 10 kills, Schember had 44 assists, Gross had eight kills, Maci Montgomery contributed 20 digs and two aces and Polega finished with three aces. Against Byron, Madi Thompson had 14 kills and 10 assists for the Rockets, Savannah Comstock had seven kills and 11 digs, Peyok had 16 assists, Roberts had eight digs, Danielle Prueter had three aces and Amber Dennis had two aces.

“They compete every day in practice and push each other to get better, and they support each other through the ups and the downs. “To have reached the quarterfinals is great. I’m so honored to be a part of the team to make history at Kingston,” she added. “We’ll take a day or two to enjoy the feeling, and then we’ll get back to work and focus on Southfield Christian. No matter the odds, I’ll always believe in this group and what they can accomplish.” Winning the first set on Thursday was key for the Cardinals’ outlook despite them proceeding to drop the next two for a 2-1 deficit. “We were able to get off to a great start in the first set and play with a lot of confidence,” said Hunter.

Kingston’s winning pedigree wouldn’t allow it to stay down in the face of the 2-1 deficit that followed its solid start. “We may not have the resumé that other teams have, but this team has fought through adversity all season,” said Hunter. “When we got in the huddle before the fourth set, they knew they were still in the match and just needed to start taking over offensively. “These girls step up in big moments, and last night was no different,” she added. “They were determined and refused to give up, and once we got momentum on our side, we just played lights out.” Camryn MacGuire paced the Cardinals in the finals with 36 assists, eight service points, five digs and two aces, Lily

Fifteen-year-old Connor Herford of Cass City (right) was guided by his father, Ryan (left) during the September Youth Deer Hunt in the Thumb, when he shot this outstanding 12-point buck featuring a very unique palmated left antler. Connor used his Great grand-father Armond Herford’s .44 magnum Ruger carbine to drop the buck with one shot at 20 yards on the opening morning. His first thought when he saw the buck was “shoot!” Connor won the first Youth Hunt Big Buck Contest sponsored by the Cass City Gun Club, which provided a free shoulder mount by taxidermist Tim Dorland. Connor was presented with his buck mount on Monday night at the Cass City Gun Club.
