Wind project underway in Juniata Township, despite questions about proper procedure By John Schneider Editor

Construction of base supports for wind turbines has begun in Juniata Township, despite questions from residents about whether the company building them has the proper permits to do so. NextEra Wind Energy Resources, based in Juno Beach, Fla., owns the Pegasus Wind project, which upon completion would result in 57 wind turbines to be placed in Fairgrove (30), Juniata (23) and Gilford (4) townships. This is the third NextEra wind farm that will exist in Tuscola County, following the Tuscola Bay Wind project and Tuscola Wind II. See JUNIATA A10

FORT HOOD, Texas – On Sept. 11, 2001, 2,996 people were killed after 19 men hijacked and crashed four U.S. commercial airplanes bound for West Coast destinations. It was a day that forever changed America. U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Darren Werner graduated from Mayville High School in 1985 and is the commanding general of the 13th Expeditionary Sustainment Command (ESC) at Fort Hood in Texas. He spoke with The Advertiser on Tuesday about what he recalls from

that day and the effect it had on the military. At the time of 9/11, Werner was 33 years old, a major in the Army and stationed at Fort Hood as part of the 4th Infantry Division as a material readiness officer. “I got into my office that morning and there were a couple of folks already there,” he said. “The morning news was on the radio and I can remember the broadcaster talking through what was happening. The way they described the first plane was a small unidentified airplane that was off course. As the day unfolded, it went from a plane in distress with mechanical problems to something

that changed everything from that point on and the world we live in today.” Werner said his division was preparing for a monthly readiness review on the equipment that day. “We had a whole new sense of importance when we sat down that day,” he said. “We knew we would be, in short order, loading the equipment up on a ship somewhere.” On 9/11 all military installations in the U.S. were placed at Force Protection Condition (FPCON) Delta and restricted to only military personnel.

For Lizzy: Meal helps pay for Caro girl’s funeral By Tom Gilchrist Reporter

They say Elizabeth M. “Lizzy” Stec could sing a song, whether it was the national anthem before Caro High School sporting events, or Chris Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey,” a tune she considered singing at an upcoming audition for the TV show “America’s Got Talent.” Lizzy Stec, 14, of Caro, was known for playing keyboard, being silly, devouring Chinese food and Takis tortilla chips, loving her dog Henry and lifting others’ spirits. She looked forward to driving a car, learning the guitar and choosing a song

she’d soon sing at a recording studio. They called her “artistic by nature” in her obituary, one of several reports in the past 17 months about Tuscola County teenagers who – like Lizzy Stec – took their own lives. “She was amazing,” said Travis Stec, 39, of Tuscola County’s Gilford Township, father of Lizzy Stec, who attended Caro High School last school year and also attended Akron-Fairgrove Schools at one time. “She was very talented, and always was willing to help other people out when they were going through problems,” Stec said. “She never really worried about herself.”

‘Very proud’: Tuscola County clerk reflects on special year for local officials By John Schneider Editor

(Courtesy photo)

Tuscola County Clerk Jodi Fetting was honored with the “President’s Award” from the Michigan Association of County Clerks in August. Fetting is one of four Tuscola County officials presently sitting on a board of directors of a state organization.

Last month, Tuscola County Clerk Jodi Fetting received the Michigan Association of County Clerks (MACC) President’s Award, given each year to the clerk that serves as president of the group’s board of directors. But before speaking about the honor, Fetting pointed out that she was one of four Tuscola County officials presently serving on a Michigan board of directors. In addition to Fetting, Tuscola County Commissioner Matthew Bierlein is president of the Michigan Association of Counties; Tuscola County Friend of the Court Director Sandy Erskine is president of the Michigan Friend of the Court Association; and Tuscola County Prosecutor Mark Reene serves on the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan Board of Directors as the immediate past president, having served as president of the association in 2017. “It’s unheard of,” Fetting said. “I think it’s a good representation of this county in that we service not only locally, but we take our issues to the state level and represent them


Cass River Greenway looking for volunteers for Saturday cleanup

Volunteers walk in the Cass River last year with a canoe filled with trash collected from the river. The Cass River Greenway will host an event Saturday to pick up old tires in and along the river.

The Cass River Greenway has a Cass River cleanup event scheduled for Saturday. The group – dedicated to the upkeep of the Cass River – plans to remove about 100 vehicle tires along a three-mile section of the river. The tires were stacked or identified for removal last month. Cass River Greenway is looking for volunteers to help with the cleanup, which will begin about 9 a.m. Volunteers are asked to meet at 9 a.m. at Kappen Tree Service, 2675 Hurds Corner Road, which is between Caro and Cass City. Cass River Greenway will provide canoes, HAVE hand tools, gloves and bottled water.

There will be a brief safety meeting prior to embarking on the cleanup. Volunteers are encouraged to wear clothing that can get wet and dirty, and shoes that can maneuver well on a wet, rocky riverbed (no flip flops). The cleanup event coincides with National Cleanup Day, which is Sept. 15. To volunteer or to have questions answered, contact Gene Suuppi at 989-3251548 or Nancy Barrios at 810-358-5755.

there as well. “I’m very proud that we have this much involvement.” Fetting received the award on Aug. 21 at the MACC’s annual summer conference at the Park Place Hotel in Traverse City. The honor is four years in the making. Fetting was first elected as Tuscola County clerk in 2012, and was re-elected to a second fouryear term in 2016. She was nominated for the MAAC Board of Directors – which includes representation from each of Michigan’s 83 counties – by her peers in 2014. After being elected to the board, Fetting served as third vice president in 2015, second vice president in 2016 and first vice president in 2017. Next year, Fetting will serve her final year

on the association’s board as the immediate past president. Teamwork, Fetting said, is key to the MACC. “I work with the board a lot, I think it’s important to involve everybody,” Fetting said. “Because you have so much more experience that way.” MACC clerks meet quarterly (four times per year), Fetting said, but a handful of extra committee meetings have been held in 2018 due to a task involving new legislation. “The association in general looks to the Board of Directors to work on legislation for elections or court-vital records,” Fetting said. “So we’re always working with lobbyists to get things improved.”

New commander named at MSP Caro Post lieutenant, detective first lieutenant and first lieutenant. “I was here in Caro as a sergeant back in 2012 and that was my first experience with working out of the Caro Post,” Pennell said. “I love the area and love the community ‒ the people and the counties that we cover. After I promoted again, my goal was to always come back as the post commander. There are a lot of opportunities here for developing our younger troopers.” Pennell’s post-secondary educational studies include criminal justice and business administration at Delta College and the University of Virginia. He is also a graduate of the FBI National Academy. Pennell resides in Saginaw where he has resided with his wife and three kids since 2000. “I’ve been at bigger posts, I’ve been on undercover teams in plainclothes assignments and I think I can bring some of that back to help our troopers and law enforcement partners work together and build better partnerships,” Pennell said. In 2007, Pennell, then a trooper at the Flint Post, was named the Gerstacker Trooper of the Year, which recognizes the MSP trooper or sergeant who symbolizes outstanding professional ethics, dedication to duty and a concern for giving back to their community.

There’s a new commander in town. The Michigan State Police (MSP) has announced the reassignment of Detective First Lieutenant Ryan Pennell.

Born and raised in Rose City, Pennell enlisted with the MSP in 2000 and graduated as a member of the 119th Recruit School.

A project to replace the current runway lighting and controls with LED lights is set to begin in September at the Tuscola Area Airport. The low bid in the amount of $329,850 was received from County Line Power of Sanford and accepted by the TAA Authority Board and the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Office of Aeronautics, according to TAA Authority Board Treasurer Joe Greene. The Tuscola Area Airport, located southwest of Caro, is categorized as a “local general aviation facility” by the Federal Aviation Administration. The airport covers an area of 260 acres and has two runways. The asphalt runway is 4,300 feet long by 75 feet wide and the turf runway is 2,300 feet by 110 feet. Over 10,000 takeoffs and landings occur each year at the airport, with 48 aircraft calling Tuscola Area Airport home. Mechanical maintenance of aircraft and flying lessons are also available at the airport. As mayor of the city of Caro, Greene is looking forward to the completion of this project. “What’s good for the airport, is good for the communities it serves,” Greene said. “If you build a mile of road, you can travel that mile, but if you build a mile of runway, you can travel the world.”

Once the Army was able to better understand the circumstances of what happened on 9/11, Werner said the focus went from securing Fort Hood to preparing for war if the military was called upon. In November 2003, Werner and the 4th Infantry Division were sent to Iraq. He served as a battalion executive officer during Operation Iraqi Freedom and later with the 4th Support Battalion as the battalion commander in 2007. “The 4th Infantry Division J.W. Hunt, an equal opportunity employer, is looking for did not send any soldiers to FULL and PART TIME Afghanistan,” he said. “At that time, it was principally light infantry.

FPCON DELTA, the highest alert, describes a situation when a terrorist attack is taking place or has just occurred in the immediate area. Additionally on 9/11, the entire airspace of the U.S. was closed by order of the Federal Aviation Administration. “Right after the planes went into the tower, the whole country shut down,” Werner said. “Fort Hood closed up – nobody in or out until we figure out what is going on.

reasoning is tied to their emotions and on the anniversary, there are some countries around the world that may not have the same ideals, who in some cases, celebrate the attacks on the U.S. I’ve been in some countries where that has been the case.” Prior to moving to Fort Hood earlier this year, Werner worked at the Pentagon, the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense, for two years. On the morning of 9/11, American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the side of the Pentagon, resulting in 189 fatalities. Werner’s office inside the Pentagon was on the first floor, approximately 100 yards from the point of impact. “There were many people I worked with who were in the Pentagon that day and I’ve had conversations with those individuals,” he said. Last year on 9/11, Werner attended a ceremony at the Pentagon Memorial outside of the Pentagon where the president and secretary of defense spoke. “There was definitely a significant recognition of the individuals lost in the Pentagon during this annual ceremony they do,” he said. Werner is the youngest of seven children, three of whom live in Mayville – Stacey, Elisia and Douglas.

On Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Iron Horse Bar & Grill in Akron, area residents can help the family of Lizzy Stec at an all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner to raise funds for her funeral expenses. The cost is $10 per person, with those younger than 16 paying $7, and the meal coming free for children younger than 4. There’s also a silent auction at the event at the Iron Horse at 3592 Main St., and those who can’t attend it may visit and search for the “Funeral expenses for Lizzy” page. Travis Stec is searching, too – for answers – and asking questions, following his daughter’s Sept. 2 death and other suicides of teenagers. “I don’t know how you stop it, but that’s what we’ve been trying to figure out,” Stec said. “We’re kind of working with some people, because there were three (teenager suicides) in the last two years that were actually friends of Elizabeth.” Lizzy’s mother, Dalia Nuncio, 37, of Caro, said her daughter didn’t have close relationships with the other teenagers who died in recent months. “They were not necessarily friends, but just people that (she) knew, that either they went to school with or they hung out with one day or two days. It was people that she had met or that she had talked to.” Travis Stec figures online bullying played a part in his daughter’s death. “I don’t understand it nowadays,” Stec said. “Back in my day, if you wanted to say something, you went up to their face and took care of it. And you became friends.” A Facebook post on Sunday by Travis Stec shared a message he said his daughter wrote online “on a account I obviously was blocked from so I couldn’t see it or things would have been different …” The message refers to those who insult others with derogatory slurs. “They all laugh at you until you had enough then you just end it all…” the message states. “Then what do they do? ... they care and feel bad … why couldn’t they … care or feel bad while they were doing it before you … killed yourself??” Nuncio said she doesn’t believe online bullying played a part in her daughter’s Sept. 2 death, noting Lizzy Stec – who lived with Nuncio – wasn’t able to go online that day. “I don’t think that (contributed) because she didn’t have her cellphone on Sunday (Sept. 2). She got in trouble Saturday night so she had her phone taken away Sunday, so she didn’t even have access to her phone,” Nuncio said. Nuncio said there were no indications her daughter was struggling, emotionally, in the days prior to Sept. 2. “There was nothing recent,” Nuncio said. “She had trouble before with bullying, maybe a year before this, but when we did find out, we acted on it. She was pretty good at either telling things to me or her sister (Yasmine Stec). If she couldn’t tell me, she definitely would tell her sister, and


if she didn’t tell her sister, she would tell me.” Though Lizzy Stec attended ninth grade last year at Caro High School, “she was going to home-school this year,” Nuncio said. “We already had all her books, we had her all set up, through (an online public school),” Nuncio said. Nuncio said Lizzy looked forward to a November audition in Detroit for the TV show “America’s Got Talent,” which offers performers a chance to compete for a top prize of $1 million. “She had learned of a new song that she wanted to learn, but I liked the way she sang ‘Tennessee Whiskey’ by Chris Stapleton,” Nuncio said. “She would add a little twist to it when she sang it. She would give her touch to music, or to songs.” Nuncio said Lizzy adopted a puppy, Henry, in August, and that she and her daughter had talked about Lizzy taking driver’s training classes, and picking a song to have recorded when Lizzy sang it at a studio. “Lately, in the last month or so, she just seemed so happy,” Nuncio said. “I hadn’t seen that in a long time with her. I can’t even remember the last time she actually got in trouble besides Saturday night (Sept. 1).” Even on Sunday, Sept. 2, Lizzy played the electronic keyboard in her upstairs bedroom, Nuncio said. “I keep going over everything and I guess I never expected it, because I’ve seen her depressed a lot worse than she was that day,” Nuncio said. Dr. Richard Horsch of Tuscola County’s Dayton Township, a retired physician and vice chairman of the board of directors for the Tuscola County Health Department, worries about the effects of advancing technology on selfconscious teenagers. “The social pressures that are put on our kids now through all these (cellphones) and the way teenagers send photos and messages – it’s more than a kid can handle,” Horsch said. “It’s just a scary situation. We have an epidemic of suicides among teenagers, not just here but across the country.” In Missouri, an analysis of state data by The Kansas City Star found that in 2016 in that state, 73 teenagers killed themselves – the most on record for Missouri. Lizzy Stec leaves behind her parents and her 17-year-old sister, Yasmine, and her 8-year-old brother, Tristan Stec. A Sept. 9 post by ChynaMarie Torrez on the Facebook page for the 629-member group entitled “Stop bullying in Caro Michigan and everywhere” refers to Lizzy Stec’s departure. “I have never been so broken over some one that has passed,” the post states, adding that “It may take us a while, but if we come together as one and stop bullying we can make a change. Make a change and BE THE CHANGE before another young teenager who we care about takes their life.” Travis Stec said community members have been

The Tuscola County Board of Commissioners seeks applicants for a spot on the five-person board overseeing the Tuscola County Road Commission. The vacancy was created by the Aug. 19 death of Michael Zwerk, 75, of Denmark Township, a member of the road board since 2008. Zwerk “was a really good board member and he will be sorely missed by us, for sure,” said Mike Tuckey, road commission finance director. Any applicant for road commissioner has until 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18 to submit a letter of interest, and a resume. County commissioners plan to interview applicants Sept. 24 at the Tuscola County Board of Commissioners’ Committee of the Whole meeting that starts at 8 a.m. that day. Applicants are asked to submit a

letter of interest, along with a resume, to Tuscola County Clerk Jodi Fetting, whose office is in the Tuscola County Courthouse. Applicants may mail the letter, and resume, to: Tuscola County Clerk, Jodi Fetting, 440 N. State St., Caro, MI 48723. Applicants also can email those documents to: jfetting@tuscolacounty. org. The job doesn’t come with healthinsurance benefits. The chosen successor to Zwerk would join road board members Jack Laurie (chairman), Gary Parsell (vice chairman), Julie Matuszak and Pat Sheridan. By state law, county commissioners appoint a person to the vacancy on the road board until a successor is elected in November of 2020. The winner of that election serves on the road board until the expiration of Zwerk’s term, which is set to end in 2022. Zwerk owned Zwerk and Sons Farms until his recent retirement. He was a former chairman of the Michigan Bean Commission, and former

president of the American Dry Bean Board, in addition to serving on the board overseeing the Tuscola County Road Commission. Under state law, road commissions exist to maintain safe and efficient roads and bridges for the public, according to the County Road Association of Michigan. The association states that a county road commission or road department has employees that may include snowplow drivers, maintenance workers, weighmasters, foremen, mechanics, office and administrative staff, financial administrators and engineers. According to the association, the responsibilities of a road commission include building and maintaining a variety of roads; constructing roads, bridges and culverts, and maintaining those features; maintaining roads in winter via methods such as snow removal and road-salting; conducting preventive roadside and gravel-road maintenance; and ensuring safe and steady traffic patterns.

Dalia Nuncio of Caro carries this framed photo showing her late daughter, Elizabeth “Lizzy” Stec, 14, who died Sept. 2. Lizzy Stec had attended ninth grade last school year at Caro High School and had attended Akron-Fairgrove Schools in the past.

“amazingly supportive” in the wake of his daughter’s passing. Lizzy’s obituary notes she was active in the Caro High School choir, adding her powerful voice “could leave goosebumps on anyone blessed to hear her.” “She touched a lot of people’s lives, that’s for sure,” said Stec, noting his daughter “was funny – she loved to goof around a lot.” “She was silly,” Nuncio added. “I don’t think she ever really had a serious moment.” Laura Miller, writing on the GoFundMe page raising funds for Lizzy’s funeral expenses, called Lizzy Stec “a beautiful soul.” “You will be truly missed,” Miller wrote. “Fly and sing with the angels.”

“Construction on the Pegasus project is underway,” NextEra Manager of Communications Bryan Garner confirmed. “We have a goal of building this project by the end of the year.” NextEra needs multiple permits in order to erect the Pegasus project. Its first order of business was to get approved for a special land use permit (SLUP) from the Juniata Township and Fairgrove Township planning commissions, which NextEra did in January and December, respectfully. The next step in the process, receiving a notice of “no presumed hazard” from the Federal Aviation Administration, has not been completed. Because of the proximity of several prospective turbines to Tuscola Area Airport, the FAA must issue approval for the turbines to be constructed. In February, the FAA issued a notification of “presumed hazard” for 46 of the what was then 62 turbine locations associated with the Pegasus project. “Before we can build the project, the FAA will have to issue a notice of ‘no presumed hazard,’” Garner told The Advertiser in February. “(A ‘presumed hazard’) notice basically indicates that the turbine locations didn’t meet the FAA’s guidelines for automatic approval.” Since February, NextEra has been in the process of working with the FAA for approval. “We’ll consult with the FAA and address each of the issues they raised with regard to our turbines and submit a plan on how the Pegasus Wind project and Tuscola airport can coexist with safe operations for both,” Garner said in February. If NextEra receives FAA approval, which Garner expects it will, the next step will be to file for the proper permits with Tuscola Area Airport and the state Office of Aeronautics which issues Tall Structure Permits. At a special Tuscola County Board of Commissioners meeting on Thursday, Aug. 30, the board addressed a concern from Juniata Township residents that construction has begun on the Pegasus project without key permits. At the meeting, Tuscola County Controller/Administrator Michael Hoagland said that Curtis Stowe, a building inspector for South Central Michigan Construction Code Inspections, which is contracted by Tuscola County, told him recently that all buildingcode permits have been properly issued for NextEra to begin initial construction on the turbines, even the ones nearest Tuscola Area Airport. “My goal was to get a feel for Curtis’s confidence level, so I asked him basically five questions,” Hoagland said. Hoagland asked Stowe if he was confident that he followed all

enforcement and permit procedures, if he had thorough records and documentation of approval, and if he stood by it. Hoagland asked him if he treated all reviews and approval with NextEra as with all other wind projects he’s been involved with, if Stowe had the necessary experience in permitting wind-turbine projects, and lastly, if SCMCCI is properly registered to deal with such a project. Stowe, who did not attend the board of commissioners meeting, said yes to all questions, Hoagland said. Hoagland added that it takes an experienced person or firm to deal with all the paperwork involved in a large-scale wind project, and that neither he nor the members of the board of commissioners had the experience necessary to pass judgment on whether Pegasus Wind is being constructed in coherence with the permitting process. Which is why Tuscola County contracts with SCMCCI. “It’s difficult for me and (the board) to understand all the intricacies of this type of enforcement procedure,” Hoagland said. “You have to entrust your entities to do this, and I got all assurances from Curtis and full confidence that he has done that.” At the board meeting, members of the Concerned Citizens of Juniata Township asked why NextEra has commenced with construction of Pegasus despite not having permits from the Tuscola Area Airport board or Michigan Tall Structure Permits to do so. “The heart of the issue here is (Tuscola County) oversees the airport ordinance,” said Juniata resident and Concerned Citizens member Garrett Tetil. “Just reading off the first page of the (airport) ordinance, ‘No structures shall be constructed,’ and we already have construction going on in some of the critical zones, ‘or altered in the airport zone area unless a determination of no hazard has been issued by the FAA or Michigan Tall Structures.’” The Concerned Citizens say that since Tuscola County rules over the airport board, and that SCMCCI is a contracted company, the board of commissioners could order NextEra to halt construction. “Our contention is zoning permits should not have been given,” Tetil said. “And perhaps should be pulled because the conditions in our county’s airport ordinance have not been met. “I think they’re rushing the job, I think there are safety issues here – and they’re putting these in zones they may never get a variance for.” Pegasus is presently headquartered on M-81, between Sheridan Road and Ringle Road, in Juniata Township. One of the points of contention is the wording on the Tuscola Area Airport ordinance. The Concerned Citizens group claims that no construction is allowed without approval, while NextEra argues that it’s alright to begin construction, as long as it’s at ground level.

Pegasus Project Manager Erico Lopez spoke to the board at the Aug. 30 meeting, and said that NextEra is proceeding lawfully. Lopez stated that all that is being constructed at the present time are the base portions of the turbines. “We are not constructing any turbines currently,” Lopez said. “Any construction is currently being done at ground level, so the ordinance is being met.” Lopez added that until the FAA issues a determination of “no presumed hazard,” there is no reason to file for permits with Tuscola Area Airport or the Office of Aeronautics. “Until we have the FAA approvals, the determination of ‘no hazard,’ we really don’t have anything to talk about with the current airport zoning administrator,” Lopez said. “We have, however, sat down to talk with the new airport zoning administrator just to talk about the project moving forward. As soon as we get our determination of ‘no hazard,’ which we are very confident we are going to get, we will continue with the project.” Garner told The Advertiser last week that he, too, expects to get FAA approval, along with the remaining permits necessary to complete the Pegasus project. “Once we receive those determinations from the FAA, we will file the appropriate applications for permits with the Tuscola Airport and for Michigan Tall Structures,” Garner said. “Our goal is to ensure that the project does not interfere with the operations and safety of the local airport. “Once constructed, the Pegasus Wind project will be our third wind energy center in Tuscola County. It has the potential to deliver good jobs, tax benefits, landowner payments and clean, homegrown energy to the region.” On the Concerned Citizens of Juniata Township Facebook page, several residents have complained about the nuisance of a large Pegasus Wind workforce within the township. Meanwhile, some of the comments on the page have caused concern for the wind farm workers. On an Aug. 30 post, a person wrote, “Assassination is the only possible answer.” While another says, “Use a high power rifle.” Both comments are seemingly in reference to stopping the wind project. The comments caused one Pegasus worker to fear for his safety and file a police report, Garner said. Both comments have since been erased from the Facebook page. The Aug. 30 meeting ended with the board of commissioners agreeing to gather more information and to address the subject at a future board meeting.


Breathe easier: Dealing with bad air quality

Even though you can’t see it, the air you breathe can affect your health. Polluted air can cause difficulty breathing, flare-ups of allergy or asthma, and other lung problems. Longterm exposure to air pollution can raise the risk of other diseases, including heart disease and cancer. Some people think of air pollution as something that’s found mainly outside. They may picture cars idling or power plants with smokestacks. But air pollution can also occur inside – in homes, offices, or even schools. Whether outdoors or indoors, the effects of air pollution are most obvious for those who already have difficulty breathing. “All people are likely susceptible to the adverse effects of air pollution. But people who have chronic lung diseases such as asthma are more susceptible,” explains Dr. Nadia Hansel, who studies lung problems at Johns Hopkins University. Researchers with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are working to understand and reduce the impact that air pollution – both outdoors and indoors – has on health.

What’s Outside

set up at over 1,000 locations across the country. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency uses these monitors to produce the Air Quality Index (AQI). The index can be found online at (link is external). People who are sensitive to outdoor pollution may want to use the AQI to track when levels are high. This information can help you make choices about when to do outdoor activities.

Improving Air Indoors

Indoor air pollution can be harmful, too. It can come from many sources. Secondhand tobacco smoke contains tiny particles that can hurt your lungs. Gas stoves and appliances can create harmful gases. Pets and pests (such as mice and cockroaches) can shed substances, called allergens, that cause allergies. Mold and dust mites also produce allergens. Even furniture and cleaning products can release harmful compounds into the air. In recent years, researchers have learned a lot about how exposure to indoor pollutants contribute to disease. “Studies are now asking: What do we do about it? What sorts of things can help reduce some of these exposures?” Zeldin says. Several NIH-funded researchers are looking at ways to reduce harm from indoor air pollution. Hansel studies the use of air cleaners (also called air purifiers) to improve the air quality for older adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This condition makes it hard to breathe and puts people at increased risk of dangerous lung infections, such as pneumonia. “Studies have shown that high pollutant levels inside the home can make breathing harder for people with COPD,” Hansel says. Hansel’s team is now testing whether using air cleaners with special filters in the home can decrease COPD symptoms. The filters they’re testing remove both particulates and nitrogen dioxide, a gas pollutant produced by cooking.

Several different types of pollutants can affect your health. When the weather is warm, an invisible gas called ozone can make it harder for some people to breathe. This gas is created when sunlight triggers a chemical reaction between oxygen and certain pollutants from cars, factories, and other sources. Ozone can irritate the lining of your airways and lungs. People with asthma and other lung conditions are more likely to feel its effects. “When people with poorly controlled asthma are exposed to low levels of ozone, the amount of inflammation in the lungs goes way up,” explains Dr. Daryl Zeldin, a lung and environmental health science expert at NIH. “As a result, air passages narrow, which makes it much harder to breathe.” Another type of outdoor pollutant that affects health is particulates.

The researchers will compare COPD symptoms in people who use the filters with those who don’t. They hope the use of the filters will also reduce hospital visits. Research has shown that improving indoor air quality in the home can improve the health of kids with lung conditions, explains Dr. Wanda Phipatanakul, a children’s health expert at Boston Children’s Hospital. But while air quality in the home matters, children can spend more than eight hours a day indoors at school. Improving air quality in schools has the potential to improve the health of many children at once, Phipatanakul adds. “Home-based interventions help individual families, but targeting schools could help all the kids that are there, and has much more potential for impact,” she says. Phipatanakul is running an NIH-funded study in about 40 schools. The intervention includes air cleaners in classrooms to remove particles and special pest control strategies to reduce allergens. The researchers are tracking children with asthma at the schools over the school year to see if the intervention improves their symptoms. Research has shown that, in addition to improving health, improving indoor air quality can also boost how well kids do in school. “Kids who come to school and aren’t as sick are going to do better. So that’s kind of the overall goal,” Phipatanakul says.

inside air has a chance to escape. “Ventilating your house, such as opening windows, can actually lower the air pollution levels inside, and it really doesn’t cost anything,” Hansel explains. This strategy may not work on days when outdoor pollution is very high, she says. Paying attention to the AQI or other measures of outdoor air quality can help you decide when to let inside air out.

Advertiser Football Game of the Week Football roundup: Kowalski clicks at From TVC to GTC, Caro-Vassar to resume QB, leads Reese shutout of Vassar annual football rivalry after four-year drought By Adam Smith Sports Editor

There was never any question the long time rivalry between Caro and Vassar would live on despite the Vulcans leaving the TriValley East after the 2007 season for a new home in the Greater Thumb West. The schools have faced each other more than any other program, with Caro owning a 39-23-2 advantage in the 64game series. The Tigers and Vulcans continued to schedule each other for an additional six (File Photo) seasons following Vassar’s Caro’s Caleb Graves (3) follows the block of depature from the TVC, but the series has been on hiatus teammate Isaac Joslyn (58) looking for running since a Vassar 47-6 victory room during the Tigers’ 14-12 Greater Thumb in 2013 that was its third West defeat last Friday at USA. consecutive over Caro. night, and this should be a good game, After a decade apart in different conferences, Caro recently but if we don’t get some things fixed we followed Vassar’s same path to the could be in for a long night,” said Caro Greater Thumb West, where the teams coach Mike Muron of the mentality will once again have the opportunity to coming off a 14-12 road loss to USA in face off annually and continue to grow the Tigers’ Greater Thumb West debut. their rivalry.

With starter Adam Fisher lost for the season due to injury, Jake Kowalski took over at the quarterback position for the Rockets in Friday’s Greater Thumb West game with visiting Vassar, and he didn’t disappoint in leading Reese to a 24-0 win. Kowalski factored into all three of the Rockets’ scores, first on a 21-yard pass to Gabe Robinson in the opening quarter, then on a 1-yard run in the second quarter and lastly, on a 21-yard pass to Connor Goka that also came before halftime. A 39-yard field goal from Robinson, whose point-after try kicks on each of Reese’s scores were good, came in the third quarter to complete the scoring. Kowalski finished 9 of 14 passing for 134 yards with two TDs and an interception. Tanoah Palmreuter contributed 49 rushing yards for Reese while Logan Rocha ran for 37 yards, helping the Rockets amass 191 of their 325 yards of total offense on the ground. Robinson led the Rockets’ receivers with four catches for 77 yards. Vassar turned the ball over four times on its way to tallying just 119 yards of total offense. The Vulcans lost three fumbles and threw an interception. Vulcans’ quarterback Ricardo Macon ran 21 times for 68 yards and was 7 of 16 passing for 59 yards. See FOOTBALL ROUNDUP B4

“I’ve seen them on film and they’ve got a good QB (in Ricardo Macon) running their spread (offense). He’s a tough runner for them, so we’ll need to play smart, disciplined ball.” Caro enters the game at 1-2 (0-1 GTC West), with its lone victory thus far a 57-14 Week 2 win over Capac. Vassar played returning playoff team Hemlock tough in Week 1 before dropping a 22-14 decision, but has failed to reach the same form in follow-up losses to Bad Axe in Week 2 and Reese on Friday for an 0-3 (0-2 GTC West) start to the season. It was back to the drawing board for the Vulcans after their latest 24-0 road setback to the Rockets, but both Vassar and Caro are seeking their first conference wins of the season. “What’s bad about winning a game like we did against Capac was it gave us a false sense of security,” said Muron. “Until we learn to play mistake-free football, it’s going to be a struggle for us each and every game. If we’re mentally sharp and physically ready to go, we’ll have a chance to compete in every game” Noting the two-point difference in Caro’s loss to USA, Muron highlighted the Tigers’ loss of a fumble inside the Patriots’ 5-yard line just before halftime. Instead of taking control of the game at that point, the Tigers went into halftime deadlocked in a scoreless tie. From there, just under three minutes into the second half, allowing a long touchdown pass to USA’s Braylon Ballard added to the Caro adversity that it ultimately (Photo by Greg Hall) couldn’t overcome.

Activities planned at senior home for National Assisted Living Week

(File photos)

Vassar Fields Assisted Living, shown here, has several activities planned for residents and their families for National Assisted Living Week which is Sept. 9 to Sept. 15. By Alex Szwarc Reporter

As a way to celebrate National Assisted Living Week, Vassar Fields Assisted Living has several activities planned for residents and their families. Established by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) in 1995, National Assisted Living Week begins tomorrow and lasts until Sept. 15. The NCAL website states the week provides “A unique opportunity for residents, their loved ones, staff, volunteers, and the surrounding communities to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities.” “Every day we have something going on,” Vassar Fields Administrator Rachel Morgan said. “We are doing a family picnic with our residents and their families. Also, every day we are doing a ‘guess who’ game where all the families gave us old pictures of the resident and the residents will guess who is who.” The annual observance encourages assisted living communities around the country to offer a variety of

Activities planned at Vassar Fields Assisted Living, pictured here, include a family picnic and a ‘guess who’ game where residents look at old pictures of fellow residents and guess the identity. National Assisted Living Week is Sept. 9 to Sept. 15.

events and activities to elebrate the individuals they serve, as well as to help educate members of the public about this distinctive aspect of long-term care. Vassar Fields, located at 5380 Frankenmuth Road, just south of Vassar in Tuscola Township, opened in May of last last year. Since opening, Morgan said the community has been appreciative. “One thing that always sticks in my mind is one of our residents used to tell everyone that came in for a tour ‘I’ve lived in a lot of places and on a scale of one to 10, this place is a 12.’” Paul Meisel, along with his wife Terri Meisel own Vassar Fields. They have also owned and operated Auburn Fields Assisted Living in Auburn the last nine years. “Paul decided to open one here and there wasn’t anything in the area,” Morgan said. “We had been open for six months and our facility has been full since then.” There are three room options for residents – standard private studio (290 square feet), large private studio (370 square feet) and one-bedroom suite (580 square feet). Morgan said there are 20 residents in Vassar Fields and

17 workers on staff. Features and amenities at Vassar Fields include a formal dining room, individual room heaters, free public Wi-Fi and religious services. In the spring of 2019, Morgan said Vassar Fields will be breaking ground on a new 20-room facility. “We are putting another addition on,” she said. “Half of it will be a memory-care unit.” When asked what Vassar Fields philosophy is on operating a successful assisted living facility, Morgan said “We always say the care of our residents always come first, no matter what.” The public frequesntly asks Morgan what activities are offered for the residents and what is available for meals. “Everything is homemade here for the meals and we do activities with them every day whether it be bingo or an exercise game or crafts,” she said. For additional information about Vassar Fields, call 989-882-9495. The theme for this year’s National Assisted Living Week is “Capture the Moment,” which hopes to inspire residents to realize their dreams and seize the day.

Understanding dementia a key to compassionate care Alzheimer’s disease is one of the more prominent forms of dementia, but there are many additional types of dementia that also can cause both physical and cognitive alterations. Understanding the complexity of dementia can be beneficial to both dementia sufferers and their caregivers. Dementia is a general term used to define a decline in mental ability severe enough that it can interfere with daily life, offers the Alzheimer’s Association. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia. Dementia is not a disease but a term used to describe a wide range of symptoms. The words “senility” and “dementia” often are incorrectly used interchangeably. However, serious mental decline is not a normal part of aging. Dementia presents itself through various symptoms, and memory loss alone is not enough to lead to a dementia diagnosis. Dementia can affect thinking and social abilities, but the Mayo Clinic notes that some dementias may be reversible.

The following are some common symptoms of dementia:

• Trouble communicating or finding words. • Difficulty completing complex tasks. • Challenges with planning and organization. • Episodes of confusion and disorientation. • Memory loss, which is often noticed by a third party. • Personality changes that can include agitation, anxiety, inappropriate behavior and even hallucinations. Apart from Alzheimer’s disease, which is a progressive disorder most common in people age 65 and older, there are other types of dementia. The second most common is called “vascular dementia.” This results from damage to vessels that supply blood to the brain. This damage can be the result of stroke, smoking and other blood vessel conditions. Brain imaging can often detect blood vessel

problems implicated in vascular dementia. Dementia with Lewy bodies, or DLB, is another dementia that laymen may mistake for Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer’s Association notes that people with DLB often have not only memory loss and cognitive problems common in Alzheimer’s, but they also display initial or early symptoms such as sleep disturbances, well-formed visual hallucinations, slowness, gait imbalance or other Parkinsonian movement features, which can lead to misdiagnosis. If physicians suspect dementia was caused by various factors, a person may be diagnosed with mixed dementia. Unfortunately, there are no cures for progressive dementias that are linked to plaque tangles in the brain and changes in the way the brain processes the protein alpha-synuclein. Patience and

various medications may be needed to help those with dementia live fuller lives. Cholinesterase inhibitors are mainstays in dementia treatment. These medications prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, a chemical messenger important for learning and memory. Acetylcholine supports communication among nerve cells by keeping acetylcholine levels high. Physical therapy and cognitive therapy may be used in conjunction with medication to assist those with various dementias. Helping individuals with dementia remain comfortable is a priority for caregivers, and understanding the symptoms and treatments can help caregivers make patients and loved ones as comfortable as possible.
