Presently, there are two apartments located above Star Vision. The business has seen plenty of changes in 25 years, morphing to keep up with the needs of customers. “We went from prescribing and fitting eyeglasses and contact lenses to additionally treating eye infections, taking out foreign bodies, performing diabetic eye examinations, monitoring molecule degeneration and treating glaucoma,” Starling said, adding that Star Vision has kept up with the fast pace of today’s life by offering evening

DANIEL EUGENE HERMAN UNIONVILLE Daniel Eugene Herman of Unionville, age 87, our patient, gentle, dignified, and devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and friend was born into eternal life on Sunday, June 3, 2018 with his family by his side. Danny was born on March 2, 1931 in Unionville, the son of the late Daniel and Laura Eugenia (Ackerman) Herman. Danny was a proud Boy Scout. While on the bus in high school, Danny met the former Eva “Jean” Gainforth. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on November 28, 1953. Together they shared nearly 65 years, four beautiful daughters, and countless memories. In 1954, Danny answered the call of his country and proudly served in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict. Upon returning from the Army, Danny carried on his father’s legacy working the family farm; harvesting sugar beets, corn, beans, and wheat. He liked to scuba dive, was an avid golfer – with three holes-in-one to his name, loved traveling across the world, and vacationing in Florida for 20 years. Danny was one of the Founding Directors at Independent Bank in Unionville, a Board Member of Sebewaing Sugar Beet Growers Association from 19741994, a 32 Degree Mason of the Grand Chapter Royal Arch Masons of Michigan, and a member of Wisner United Methodist Church. Danny will always be remembered for his love of the outdoors, especially at dusk. He will be missed dearly.

“And in addition to that, Ms. Kern didn’t pay a lot of the taxes that were due and owed to the federal government, and that has had far-reaching repercussions on them as well. They find themselves not only out this money, but in a position where they have to negotiate with the federal government – for everything that they have – to hold onto.” Andria Kern’s lawyer, Sandusky attorney John E. Melton, said Kern “indicated that she, unfortunately – as she described to the probation department – has a serious gambling addiction problem, and this kind of snowballed into this huge amount of restitution.” Melton said Kern has indicated she is receiving counseling for her addiction. Prior to sentencing, Melton told Judge Gierhart that Kern wanted the judge to “consider a sentence that would let her put the fruits of her labor towards paying this money back; she indicates that she has some money available


to pay back today” as a “down payment” on what she owes her in-laws. Kern indicated to the judge that if she’s sent to prison, that will hurt customers waiting for her services. “I do have a business and I’m coming up on the … wedding season, which – I make wedding cakes and a lot of those people have booked years in advance, and that would just be more people that I’ve let down,” Kern said. Gierhart stressed that in typical embezzlement cases, the goal is to “make the victim whole” via restitution paid back to the victim. “Well, I don’t think that realistically that’s ever going to happen here,” Gierhart said. “And so, I have to evaluate that versus the goal and objective of punishment and making a statement to the community that regardless of a person’s background or criminal history, if they engage in this kind of behavior, they’re going to be punished.”

Melton, however, noted Andria Kern’s supporters “all indicate that she’s a very hard-working person,” and Melton added she is “obviously extremely remorseful about what happened here and what she did.” Melton noted Kern’s crimes have been “devastating to her family, and she’s got to live with that.” Wanink asked the judge to send Andria Kern to prison for a minimum of two years. The judge asked Gierhart “not to ignore the amount of money that was taken here.” “That is really unacceptable for this defendant, that she – to this degree – manipulated her relationship with her in-laws to steal this much money,” Wanink said. “And it’s an amount that shocks the conscience.” Gierhart called Kern’s crimes “one of the most egregious embezzlement cases I’ve ever seen, because of not only the amount, but the relationships involved here.”

Andria Kern, 38, of Vassar Township, is shown following her sentencing Monday in Tuscola County Circuit Court. Prosecutors say Kern embezzled about “half a million” dollars from her in-laws, Randy and Carol Kern, over several years. Tuscola County Circuit Judge Amy Grace Gierhart sent Andria Kern to prison for 13 months to 15 years.

“Tuscola deputies attempted to stop the vehicle which quickly turned west onto Bliss Road going approximately 98 mph,” the release states. “The vehicle then turned south onto Bruisee Road without stopping at the stop sign (at the corner of Bliss Road and Bruisee Road) and continued to flee. The driver crashed into the ditch north of M-46 and the person immediately fled on foot.” The crash occurred near Bruisee Road. The case report states that two Tuscola County officers then pursued Diem on foot. One of the officers fell while running after the fleeing suspect on the blacktop road causing small lacerations on his palms. He also had an abrasion on his right knee. After exiting the wrecked vehicle, a

Brandon Lee Diem, 21, of Mayville, allegedly crashed this 2006 GMC Sierra into a ditch Saturday around 12:45 a.m. north of M-46 near Bruisee Road in Indianfields Township. The truck reached speeds of 98 mph before the crash, according to police.

2006 GMC Sierra, Diem ran across the road into a grassy, wooded area. During the chase, one of the officers yelled “stop, police” a number of times to Diem, who ignored the commands and kept running. Moving through a ditch on Sanilac Road (M-46), an officer drew his Taser then yelled “stop or you will be Tased.” Diem did not stop; a Taser was deployed, resulting in Diem complying and placed in handcuffs. Diem was examined at McLaren Caro Region Hospital for injuries and released to the deputies, who lodged him at the Tuscola County Jail. Hospital staff reported Diem had no broken bones or major injuries. During the traffic crash investigation, Diem told deputies that he had consumed


four bottles of beer at the Colwood Bar, in Elmwood Township, where he said he arrived at 10:30 p.m. and left at 11:30 p.m. The initial investigation indicates the fleeing vehicle left the roadway and struck a mailbox and post in the 3400 block of Bruisee Road. “The truck went into a skid and crossed over the entire roadway,” the case report states. “The vehicle went into the west side ditch and struck several medium sized trees, causing significant damage to the vehicle.” It was approximately 300 feet from where the truck left the roadway to its location in the ditch. Diem was issued a citation for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, speeding and disregarding a stop sign.

“We place (the rash of crimes) up on the importance level because of the firearms that are missing, plus also when you have this many people impacted by it,” said 1st Lt. Patrick Darrow, commander of the state police post at Caro. Darrow said Trooper Dennis Lapan, who’s investigating the crime spree, “has at least 10 (vehicles) that were gone through, but they didn’t have something that (the culprit) deemed they wanted to take.” Investigators “could see where (the vehicles) were rifled through and some things were moved around, and misplaced and tossed around, but it wasn’t of value to whoever it was who was in the cars,” Darrow added. Darrow said there were “three or four” victims of the Thursday night crime spree who lost valuables or had damage to a vehicle. Many of the cars were left unlocked, he said. “There was one car that was vandalized as a result,” Darrow said. “(The perpetrator) smashed out the window and the purse was stolen. Lapan recovered the purse. We believe somebody had scared the people off, and the purse was recovered, and … all the contents were still there, but she has damage to her vehicle, so that would be a crime.” The stolen handguns belonged to owners with valid licenses to possess a concealed pistol, Darrow said. “We’re always fearful of where those guns end up, and what they’re used for, if they’re placed in the wrong

hands,” Darrow said. “If they’re sold somewhere and you never know where they’re going to (end up). That’s how we recover these things is sometimes after a crime. “I came from the Tri-City Post and we investigated a rash of these up through the Bay County area one time and saw the same circumstances: valid concealed-pistol-license holders and they just get complacent. “They get comfortable with it and they know it’s there. Sometimes you forget the responsibility that you undertake by carrying a gun around on you every day; you have to be responsible for it and for the security of it.” Firearms owners should never leave such firearms in their vehicles, Darrow said, and troopers remind car owners to lock their vehicles at all times and limit the number of items left inside the vehicles. Mayville Village President Barbara Valentine agrees with Darrow’s take. “We share his concern and frustration, absolutely,” Valentine said. “I’m a carrier. I have a (concealed pistol license) and my husband Randy has one. If I left my gun in an unlocked vehicle and it got stolen, I’d run away from home, because my husband would have my head on a stick.” State police are working with Mayville Police Chief Louis Cook in investigating the crimes. Valentine said Cook was a part-time officer for Mayville who took over as chief on Friday after Mayville Police Chief Tony Coln resigned the Mayville

chief’s job to take a police officer’s job in the village of Stockbridge in Ingham County. Coln’s last day as chief was Thursday, Valentine said. “What we typically see with this type of incident, when it’s isolated – and these were all isolated to the village of Mayville – (the culprit) lives within that same community, and the age range is normally a younger juvenile or somebody just above a juvenile status,” Darrow said. “In this case scenario, it kind of is pointing that way, too, but you can’t really rule out anybody.” Valentine said she takes the crime spree “very, very seriously, because if (the culprit) is a child or young kids, somebody’s walking around with weapons – two of them.” Valentine said her neighbor’s car alarm went off at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, adding that “he sent me a text and asked if I could keep an eye on his house (Tuesday), so I’ve actually gone by there a couple of times.” Valentine said a village resident came into the village office Tuesday morning because “she noticed some things missing out of her truck,” though Valentine noted the woman “doesn’t use her car very often” and that the woman could have been another victim of the crime spree Thursday night. Darrow urges Mayville residents to “keep their eyes and ears open” for suspicious activity, particularly late at night, and to report any incidents by calling 911.

By definition, first- and third-degree CSC charges involve penetration with first-degree CSC carrying the possibility of a life prison sentence. First-degree CSC carries a maximum sentence of life in prison while second-degree CSC and third-degree CSC carry minimum prison sentences of 10 and 15 years respectively. Wolverine Human Services was founded in Grosse Pointe in 1987, and according to its mission statement “We take part in a mutual effort assisting those in need to overcome social and economic barriers, to capitalize on their personal strengths, and to contribute to their own healing.” Wolverine owns Pioneer Work and Learn, 150 Enterprise Drive, in Vassar, which houses and provides a variety of educational and treatment programs for both male and female youths, generally ages 12 to 19. Tuscola County Prosecutor Mark Reene wasn’t sure of Schmidt’s exact position with Wolverine, but that she was “obviously somebody that is in a position that it would never enter your mind that this kind of conduct would occur.” “We’re already trying to address a variety of things (with Wolverine clients),” Reene said. “And now you have this. In terms of unbelievable decision making, it’s off the spectrum.” Reene said following Schmidt’s March arraignment that the alleged incidents took place at Wolverine, and that Schmidt is no longer employed there. Reene alleges the incidents occurred in “close proximity, time-wise” in early March, adding that the issue was brought to light when the youths reported the alleged assaults to Wolverine officials. Reene said on Tuesday he doesn’t expect Schmidt to be charged with sex crimes against additional youths at the facility, but didn’t count out the possibility. “At this point and time, no additional information has come forward,” Reene said. “But the information we have received has come forward in stages. Until there’s some passage of time, we’re not going to be comfortable in thinking all of the information has been obtained.” A preliminary exam on the most recent charges is set for 8:30 a.m. on June 11. Schmidt is presently lodged in the Tuscola County Jail with a cash bond of $75,000.

Herpes Can Happen to Anyone Share Facts, Not Fears

Did you know that the virus that causes “cold sores” or “fever blisters” on or around the mouth can also infect other areas of the body? The infection is caused by the herpes simplex virus. And it’s very common. Most people with herpes infection don’t even know it. They may not have symptoms or not notice them. For people who do have symptoms, a herpes infection may show up as one or more blisters. These can be on or near the mouth, eyes, genitals, or rectum. After the blisters break, they turn into sores or ulcers. These sores are painful and take about a week to heal. Once someone is infected with herpes simplex, the virus goes into hiding and stays in the body for the rest of their lives. The virus can re-emerge at any time and cause an outbreak. Some people have outbreaks several times per year. Tingling or burning in the area can signal that an outbreak is looming. There are two types of herpes simplex viruses: HSV-1 and HSV-2. HSV-1 is often transmitted during childhood. You can get it from close contact with someone who has the infection. For example, a family member with a cold sore may kiss a child. HSV-1 is the main cause of herpes of the mouth or eyes. Although it’s possible for HSV-2 to infect the mouth or eyes, it’s usually found in the genital area. There’s no cure for herpes. But anti-herpes medicine can speed healing of the sores. If taken every day, this medicine can also lower the risk of future outbreaks. “It’s the first episode that is particularly important to treat,” says Dr. Jeffrey I. Cohen, a herpes infection expert

at NIH. That’s because the first outbreak is often the most severe. In addition to sores, you may have a fever and body aches. Also, the nearby lymph nodes might be swollen and painful. A doctor may suspect a diagnosis of herpes from looking at a sore. But lab tests on a sample taken from the sore is needed to confirm the diagnosis. A blood test for HSV-1 and HSV-2 is also available to confirm if someone has been infected. Researchers are working to develop herpes vaccines. “There are two different types of vaccines being developed for herpes virus,” Cohen explains. “One is a vaccine that would prevent infection in people who have not been infected with the virus.” Cohen’s research team at NIH is working on this type of vaccine. “The other type of vaccine is for people who are already infected,” he says. “The idea is that we could boost their immune system so that they have fewer recurrences.” The fact that most people don’t know that they’re infected makes vaccines especially important. When someone is diagnosed with herpes, they may feel anger, sadness, or shame. They also may fear rejection by romantic partners. Keep in mind that herpes outbreaks can be managed. People can lower the risk of infecting someone else by avoiding direct contact during an outbreak. For those with genital herpes, using anti-herpes medicine every day and condoms during sexual activity also reduces the risk of infection for a romantic partner. Talk with your doctor if you have questions about preventing or managing herpes. And help fight the stigma of herpes by sharing the facts in the Wise Choices box.

Did you know? According to the American Psychological Association’s 2017 Stress in AmericaTM survey, 53 percent of Americans look to physical activity as a means of coping with their stress. Exercising or walking was the most popular form of physical activity cited, with 46 percent of respondents indicating they looked to these activities to cope with their stress. In addition, more people seem to be looking to yoga and meditation to help them deal with their stress. While only 12 percent of respondents indicated they practice yoga or meditation to deal with stress, that marks a sizable increase from a year earlier, when 9 percent of respondents cited yoga and meditation among the methods they used to cope with stress. While they’re not physical activities, listening to music (47 percent) and prayer (29 percent) were other mechanisms people relied on to cope with their stress.

Did you know? Sleep is restorative and essential for ensuring our minds and bodys operate at peak capacity. But many kids are not getting enough sleep. According to WebMD, bedtimes have gradually become later as children must contend with social, family and school activities. This is especially true for older children. WebMD says that most 12-year-olds now go to bed around 9 p.m., getting an average of 9 hours of sleep, even though 12 hours is ideal for kids who are 12.

Michigan DNR seeking environmentally sensitive lands for habitat restoration Goal is to encourage more monarch butterflies, pheasants, ducks and grassland birds to frequent southern michigan Starting Monday, June 4, 2018, the United States Department of Agriculture will accept offers from rural landowners in 41 southern Michigan counties who want to voluntarily restore pollinator and wildlife habitat on their property. The solicitation is through the USDA Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) State Acres for Wildlife Enhancement (SAFE), Southern Michigan Pheasant and Monarch Recovery, in partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Pheasants Forever, Inc. “Any landowner in an eligible area is invited to visit their nearest Michigan USDA Service Center to learn about the Conservation Reserve Program and the pheasant and monarch recovery effort,” said DNR Director Keith Creagh. “We will accept up to 40,000 acres of environmentally sensitive land for the program, and work closely with the USDA, partners and landowners to improve wildlife habitat.” SAFE is a federally funded voluntary program that assists agricultural producers and landowners with the cost of restoring, enhancing and protecting certain grasses, shrubs and trees to improve water quality, prevent soil erosion and reduce loss of wildlife habitat. In return, participants are provided annual rental payments, cost-share assistance and other financial incentives. Eligible Michigan counties include Allegan, Arenac, Barry, Bay, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Clare,

Clinton, Eaton, Genesee, Gladwin, Gratiot, Hillsdale, Huron, Ingham, Ionia, Isabella, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Kent, Lapeer, Lenawee, Livingston, Mecosta, Midland, Monroe, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana, Ottawa, Saginaw, Sanilac, Shiawassee, St. Clair, St. Joseph, Tuscola, Van Buren and Washtenaw. “Working with our partners at the Michigan Department of Natural Resources ensures producers have access to programs that continue to protect pollinators while ensuring agriculture is a sustainable business,” said USDA Farm Production and Conservation Under Secretary Bill Northey. The additional 40,000 acres allotted for Southern Michigan Pheasant and Monarch Recovery are designed to increase diverse native grassland and wetland habitat for a variety of rare or declining species and species of significant social importance, including monarch butterfly, ring-necked pheasant, grasshopper sparrow, Henslow’s sparrow and mallard. The DNR identified these species and habitats as priorities in Michigan’s Wildlife Action Plan and the Michigan Pheasant Restoration Initiative. The Michigan CRP SAFE, Southern Michigan Pheasant and Monarch Recovery effort consists of three practice focuses: buffers, wetlands and grasses (practices CP38A, CP38B and CP38E). Interested producers can find out more information from the Michigan DNR or from any USDA Farm Service

Wildlife Habitat Grant application period opens June 1 June 1 through July 23, the Wildlife Habitat Grant Program will be accepting applications, with projects enhancing game species habitat enhancement given a priority. “This is an exciting opportunity to partner with others in the state to increase the habitat available for game species in Michigan and to enhance the existing habitat for the benefit of hunters, trappers, and wildlife viewers,” said Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Division Chief Russ Mason. Funding is available for local, state, federal and tribal governments, profit and nonprofit groups, and individuals through an open competitive process. Minimum grant amounts will be set at $15,000 with the maximum being the amount of funds available for that grant cycle. The 2018 overall available grant amount is approximately $1 million. The Wildlife Habitat Grant Program, which began in October 2013, is funded from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses. The DNR administers the program with the main objective to enhance and improve the quality and quantity of game species habitat in support of the Wildlife Division’s strategic plan. The application period begins June 1. Applications must be postmarked no later than July 23 to be considered for

funding. Successful grant applications will be announced by Oct. 1. The detailed program handbook and application are available at or For more information, contact Clay Buchanan at 517-614-0918 or Chip Kosloski at 517-284-5965.

Caro wins boys’ track state Future Oakland teammates title with school-record time cap high school careers with in 3,200 relay girls’ track state titles By ADAM SMITH


COMSTOCK PARK — Caro’s state championship in the boys’ 3,200-meter relay from Saturday’s Division 3 track and field state finals was the first of the high school careers for three out of the four members of the group, including juniors Caleb Cotton, Bryden Miller and Aaron Hulburt. The lone remaining team member, junior Yami Albrecht, has won each of the last two Division 3 cross country state titles for the Tigers, but the track state title was his first. Albrecht’s leadership paid dividends to open the race, as he passed the baton to Cotton with a sizable lead that Cotton was able to lengthen. Next in line, Miller was able to maintain the Tigers’ edge over its closest competition from Harbor Springs, and they held on to win with Hulburt fending off Harbor Springs’ final runner Jeremy Kloss by nine tenths of a second.

COMSTOCK PARK — The way Millington’s Hannah Hall and Marlette’s Emily Schaub see it, you can’t pen a better script than the one that played out for them in winning Division 3 girls’ track and field state titles on Saturday at Comstock Park High School. Hall’s state title in the high jump was the second of her career while Schaub’s 100-meter hurdles state title was her first. The achievements mean the Thumb area standouts will have more in common than just their future Division I team when the Oakland University signees arrive on campus in the fall. A clearance of 5 feet, 3 inches in Saturday’s high jump was enough to tie Hall, who also won a high jump state title in 2016, for the best effort at the meet. To break the tie, Hall and eventual runner-up Emily Hollenbaugh of Quincy were first asked to attempt 5-5. When that height went uncleared, the bar was progressively lowered an inch per round until such time that one competitor cleared a mark the other couldn’t. Hall went 5-2 and Hollenbaugh couldn’t match her.

Cass City wins first baseball district since 2014 By ADAM SMITH Sports Editor

Luke Stern, just like the rest of his Cass City baseball teammates, went into Saturday’s Division 3 district tournament at Caro High School with a chip on his shoulder. Despite having just three losses all season, each of those setbacks came during Greater Thumb West play to cost the Red Hawks their shot at a league title. Despite sweeping GTC West champion Vassar in a doubleheader, Cass City got swept in its own right by Reese and split with Laker High, forcing it to settle for second to the two-league loss Vulcans. “We expected a lot of ourselves coming into this season,” acknowledged Red Hawks’ junior Luke Stern, in his third year on varsity. “It’s nice to get a part of what we felt we deserved, because (winning a district’s) been the only thing on my mind since we lost our shot at a league title.” What hurt at the time was of benefit to the Red Hawks in the district, as they knew they were better served focusing on the future as opposed to lamenting any of their past shortcomings. Cass City had little trouble with Sandusky in its Saturday semifinal, winning 9-3, and maintained its offensive energy in the finals to knock off Bad Axe 11-5. The Hatchets defeated last year’s Division 3 state semifinalist Caro in the first Saturday semifinal, 3-2. The district title was the first for Cass City’s current players and coaching staff, as Josh Stern assumed control of the program the year following its last district title. “None of these guys have felt this before, so that was great for them,” said Josh Stern. “They’ve worked hard this season and deserve everything they get.”

Millington sets new singleseason HR mark en route to winning third straight district SAGINAW TWP. — Top-ranked Millington established a new school record for single-season homers (40) with four on its way to winning Saturday’s Division 3 softball district at Saginaw Valley Lutheran. Darrien Roberts led the way with two of those homers, which contributed to a 6-0 win over Reese in the semifinals and also a 172, four-inning mercy of the host Chargers in the finals with one in each game.

Caro can’t string hits together in district finals’ loss

Caro’s Ashlin Murphy winds up for delivery to the plate during opening-game play at Saturday’s Division 3 softball district the Tigers hosted. Caro defeated Bad Axe 13-1 in the semifinals, but fell short of a district title with a 4-2 loss to Sandusky in the finals. By ADAM SMITH Sports Editor

Caro’s 4-2 Division 3 softball district finals’ loss to Sandusky on Saturday in Caro was tough for the Tigers to digest for more than just the obvious fact that it ended their season. That’s because, as Caro coach Reney Kreger pointed out following the game, the Tigers outhit the Redskins 12-6 but left 11 runners stranded on base. Those totals included two runners left on base in their final at-bats in the top of the seventh inning, which ended with the final out of the potential go-ahead run at the plate. Sandusky accounted for a three-run homer in the first inning and an unearned run in the seventh that proved to be enough, as Caro could only muster a pair of second-inning runs. “I had no concerns at all,” said Kreger of being faced with an early 3-0 deficit. “The girls had been ripping the ball well all day, but we weren’t able to string hits together in the finals. “We probably left two runners on in six of the seven innings,” she added. “When we

get runners on like that, we have to be able to advance them. Most of our losses this year have come from close games like that.” Ashlin Murphy took the loss in the finals, allowing three earned runs over six innings. Olivia Bringard had a double among her team-best three hits and drove in both Tigers’ runs, Murphy matched her teammate with three hits, Kaytlyn Kunse had two hits with a double and Melissa Kreger also had two hits. Caro reached the finals with a 13-1, fiveinning mercy of Bad Axe in its Saturday opener. Leading the Tigers’ 17-hit barrage was Hannah Dennis with four hits including a homer, four RBIs and three runs scored, Kreger had three hits with a double, three runs scored and two RBIs, Meredith Moore’s three hits included a double and two runs scored, Morgan Eremia had three hits and three runs scored, McKenzie Smith had two hits and two RBIs and Murphy also contributed two hits. Murphy was the winning pitcher, allowing a run on one hit with a walk and 11 strikeouts over five innings.

Cass City held just a three-run lead over Bad Axe at 8-5 heading into the top of the seventh inning in the finals, but gave itself some much needed breathing room with three unanswered runs to secure its first district title since 2014. Luke Stern was the winning pitcher in relief, as he moved from his regular catcher position to the mound in place of Zack Beecher to record the game’s final four outs. “Our pitching’s been a game-changer for us,” said Luke Stern. “If we didn’t have the caliber of arms that we do, none of this would be possible.” Beecher accounted for two outs as a followup to five innings from the Red Hawks’ starter Kendall Anthes that yielded four earned runs on seven hits with two walks and 10 strikeouts. Luke Stern was also a key offensive contributor to the win with three hits including a triple, three runs scored and two RBIs. Anthes chipped in two hits, a run scored and an RBI, Beecher had two hits, an RBI and scored twice, Kenton Wiseman had two hits with a double, a run scored and an RBI and Tristan Swiderski provided a double and two RBIs. Wiseman anchored the Red Hawks to their win over the Redskins, allowing no earned runs on four hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts over seven innings. He was also his best source of offense with three hits including a double and three RBIs, and Sandyn Cuthrell had two hits with a triple, three runs scored and an RBI. “We have some strong arms, and our bats have been pretty good for us, too,” said Josh Stern. “You combine those things, and this is where we end up.” Cass City held a 5-3 edge until it was able to open the game up some with a four-run bottom of the sixth. The Red Hawks (17-3-1) advance to play Madison Heights Bishop Foley in a 10 a.m. Saturday regional semifinal at Brown City.

the game due to reaching his pitch count. Cerda proceeded to strike out the only batter he faced, earning the save, and securing the Vulcans’ first district title in seven years. The 8-7 victory also pushed Vassar’s record to 267, tying a program record for wins in a season. Vassar scored all eight of its runs in the championship game in the third inning, giving ace pitcher Steven Hecht plenty of cushion. But Hecht didn’t start the game with a cleanslate pitch count, as he had started the Vulcans’ semifinal contest against Reese about two hours earlier. Beginning last year, the Michigan High School Athletic Association implemented a new pitch count rule for baseball pitchers. A hurler may throw 105 pitches in one day if he hasn’t pitched in the past three days. Hecht tossed the first two innings against Reese, then reached the 105-pitch count with two outs in the fourth inning of the title game, and was removed as pitcher. Fortunately for the Vulcans, the monster third inning staked the squad with enough runs for the win. In the championship game, Collin Bowden and Kukulski paced Vassar with multiple-hit games. Kukulski and Ethan Dunham combined to pitch the final five innings for Vassar in the win against the Rockets. Bowden, Brennan Dunham, Cerda, Hecht and Kukulski each provided multiple hits for the Vulcans in the semifinals, with Bowden leading the way with three hits and four RBIs.

SAGINAW TWP. — For the first time since 2011, the Vassar baseball team is a district champion. But it didn’t come without a little drama. After rolling to an 11-4 win over rival Reese in Saturday’s second semifinal, the Vulcans seemed on their way to an easy win in the championship game after grabbing an 8-0 lead through four innings against Division 3 district tournament host Saginaw Valley Lutheran. That’s when things got a bit dicey. The Chargers scored five runs in the fifth inning, and two more in the seventh. With two outs, and runners on first and third in the seventh inning, senior Abraham Cerda replaced pitcher Max Kukulski after the latter was forced out of

“I’m very proud to be able to say that I’m a two-time state champion,” said Hall. “I’ve worked so hard for that dream of mine to come true, and it’s a great way for me to end my senior year and high school career.” Two other state finals’ high jump entrants also made 5-3, but needed more attempts than Hall to do so. A four-time state qualifier, Hall and Hollenbaugh were both perfect on their attempts all the way up through 5-3 to create the need for a tiebreaker. “It was different, but I still knew what I had to do,” said Hall of having to quickly adjust to the tie-break stipulations allowing no margin for error. “You only get one attempt at each height, so it was all about jumping clean (and not missing). “I came into the meet with a lot of confidence,

and I’ll continue to have that same confidence while going to Oakland,” she added. “I know I’ll be in for a challenge as a freshman, but I’ll give it my absolute best and work to earn everything I get.” Both Hall and Schaub got congratulatory messages from their future coach with the Golden Grizzlies after the meet. “It shows what kind of talent Oakland’s got coming for next year,” said Hall of her and Schaub’s state titles. “I’m excited to have (Schaub) on my team (at Oakland).” The state titles won by Hall and Schaub have only added to their sense of anticipation for what the future at Oakland holds. “It’s pretty cool that two of us from the Thumb won (state titles) and are able to continue on at the same school,” said Schaub.

The winning race time was 8:05.71, which established a new school record by four hundredths of a second to add to the feeling of accomplishment. “To win a state title and break a school record in the same race was very exciting,” said Schember. “We as coaches always had the belief they could do it. “When we ran an 8:06 at (MITCA) team states (the week before the state finals), that 13-second drop solidified for us that we had a really good chance and boosted everyone’s confidence,” he added. “It was a very good tuneup for us against top competition (at the MITCA meet), and I told them they’d have to put in the same type of effort at the (MHSAA) state finals.” Hulburt is the lone new addition to

National Dairy Month The benefits of including dairy in your diet A well-balanced diet has long been touted as a necessary component to a healthy lifestyle. When combined with routine exercise, a well-balanced diet can improve quality of life and reduce a person’s risk for various diseases. No well-balanced diet is complete without dairy. While many people may immediately associate milk with dairy, dairy products are much more diverse than that. In fact, including various dairy products in your diet can provide a host of diverse health benefits.

Dairy products are nutrient-rich

The United States Department of Agriculture notes that dairy products provide a host of nutrients that are vital to overall health. · Calcium: The nutrient most often linked to dairy, calcium is vital for building strong bones and healthy teeth. Dairy also helps to maintain bone mass, helping men and women combat age-related bone loss. · Potassium: Dairy products such as yogurt, fluid milk and soy milk are good sources of potassium. That’s beneficial because diets rich in potassium help men and women maintain

healthy blood pressures. · Vitamin D: Like calcium, vitamin D is widely associated with dairy, particularly milk. Vitamin D helps bodies build and maintain strong bones, and products such as fluid milk and soy milk are great sources of vitamin D. Yogurts and cereals fortified with vitamin D also can be great sources of this valuable vitamin.

Health benefits

Osteoporosis is a condition in which a person’s bones become fragile and brittle due to loss of tissue. Age is a risk factor for osteoporosis, but a poor diet that does not include sufficient amounts of dairy also can increase a person’s risk for osteoporosis. The Department of Agriculture notes that dairy can help men and women lower their risk for ailments other than osteoporosis. Adequate dairy intake has been associated with a reduced risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Athletes may be especially motivated to consume dairy, as

its effect on bone strength and maintenance can help them reduce their risk for injury while practicing and competing. Adolescents and children can benefit greatly from diets that contain adequate amounts of dairy. Bone mass is built during childhood and adolescence, so foods such as dairy that promote bone health can help children and teenagers develop strong, healthy bones. In regard to which dairy products to include in one’s diet, the Department of Agriculture notes the importance of avoiding foods that are high in saturated fat. Dairy products high in saturated fats can contribute to high amounts of “bad” cholesterol in the blood, increasing a person’s risk for coronary heart disease. Low-fat dairy products make for a healthy alternative to dairy that is high in saturated fats, and men and women can discuss such products with their physicians. No balanced diet is complete without dairy, which benefits the body in myriad ways.

Tips to making delicious ice cream at home Ice cream is a favorite dessert across the globe. The average American consumes more than 23 pounds of ice cream per year, says the International Dairy Foods Association. Even though a trip to the local ice cream parlor can yield many different opportunities to indulge, making ice cream at home is easier than one may believe. Also, creating homemade ice cream can be a fun way to experiment with unique flavors and textures. It is easy to customize concoctions based on what everyone likes best. Making ice cream also is a fun way to bring t h e family

together with the reward of a tasty prize for all of the effort. Here are some tips for making ice cream at home. · Buy quality ingredients. Choose fresh, high-quality ingredients. Real vanilla beans or extract can produce better flavor than imitations. Select in-season berries and other fruits and, if possible, use organic milk. All of these ingredients will blend together for fresh flavor. · Freeze equipment early. Cold equipment is necessary to produce ice cream. Store the bowls of an ice cream maker in the freezer to keep them frozen and ready for when the mood strikes to make a batch of ice cream. · Avoid ice crystallization. According to Food 52, a foodie equipment and recipe resource, ice crystals in the ice cream can ruin texture by making ice cream crunchy. Freezing ice cream quickly at very cold temperatures is essential. That means freezing the bowl and keeping the ingredient mix cold. Spinning the ice cream and transfering it quickly to the freezer helps keep ice crystals small.

· Keep mix-ins small. Mix-ins, like cookie pieces or cake crumbs, can add a different dimension to ice cream. Chill the ingredients and make sure they are small (roughly the size of chocolate chips). Add them after the ice cream is entirely frozen. · Watch alcohol usage. Alcohol can create a tipsy ice cream experience, but adding too much can interfere with ice cream’s ability to freeze. Therefore, use alcohol sparingly.

· Store ice cream smartly. According to David Lebovitz, author of “The Perfect Scoop,” store ice cream in a shallow container to keep it softer. Also, cover the surface of the ice cream with plastic wrap to prevent ice crystals from forming. Homemade ice cream will last for roughly a week in the freezer. Making ice cream can be a challenging but rewarding endeavor.
