Upper Peninsula basedsinger/songwriter Bill Jamerson will present an hour-long musi-cal program about Michiganlumberjack history on Thursday,May 2nd at 6:30 pm at theOtsego County Library. The pro-gram is co-sponsored by theFriends of the Library and theOtsego County HistoricalSociety. The title of the pro-gram, “It’s Daylight in theSwamps,” was a phrase shoutedby cooks at lumberjack campsover a hundred years ago to wake up the men in the morn-ing. With guitar in hand,Jamerson sings traditional lum-berjack songs and tells storiesand tall tales about life in thelumber camps. The program isfamily friendly; children may beinvited to come on stage to winprizes.The lumberjacks were a color-ful lot, mostly immigrants whobrought a zest for living and ahunger for the American dream.Most of them came to Americato become homesteaders. Incamp, lumberjacks entertainedthemselves in the evening by reading, sewing, playing card

By Jim Akans“New Challenges, New Solutions” is thetheme for the 33rd recognition of NationalCrime Victim’s Rights week, which is being held from this past Sunday, April 21st,through this coming Saturday, April 27th.During the week, communities throughoutthe country will honor crime victims andthose advocating on their behalf, and specialemphasis will be placed on promoting vic-tims’ rights.First established as “National VictimsRights Week”back in 1981,PresidentRonaldReagan des-ignated that weeklong event wouldbe held dur-ing themonth of  April. A few  years later, the passage of the Victims of Crime Act in 1984 was instrumental in estab-lishing a platform for providing aide andassistance to victims in the face of the finan-cial, physical and emotional impacts of being the target of a crime. Yet crime statistics remain staggering. In2009, 20 million crimes were committed inthe United States, and approximately 4.3million of those were considered violent innature. Surprisingly, youth ages 12 to 24 were reported to have the highest rate of vic-timization. One of the fastest growing crimesegments is that of identity fraud, with near-ly 11 million adults becoming victims of thisemerging transgression in 2009. This year’s National Crime Victim’s Rights Week theme; “New Challenges, New Solutions,” reflects the Office for Victims of Crime’s initiative “Vision 21:Transforming  Victims Services” strategy for the 21stCentury, which began in 2010. That missionis aimed at addressing the many new chal-lenges such as funding cuts, globalization,changing demographics, new types of crimesand changes brought aboutthrough advancing technol-ogy.The emotional and physi-cal range of crime victimiza-tion is as wide as the diversi-ty of criminal acts that pro-duce such damage. NationalCrime Victims’ Rights Week helps to promote the recog-nition of victims’ rights inthe court process, post sen-tencing, possible restitution, and in assis-tance through counseling. Victim’s Advocates in communities acrossthe nation work to help crime victims’ work through what can be a very confusing process. That includes understanding thecourt system, explaining the intent andmeaning behind a litany of processes suchas the arraignment, pre-trial, preliminary examination or a scheduling conference.Crime Victim’s Advocates also work with thevictims to assist when they have suffereddamages other than the emotional, and infiling restitution orders with the court. Thereare also funds available for crime victims. While much progress has been made overthe last 30 years, crime victims’ rights are notuniversal and are often not enforced.National Crime Victims’ Rights Week reminds us that many challenges remain.For additional information about NationalCrime Victims Week and the Victims’ of Crime Act, visit http://ovc.ncjrs.gov/ncvrw/

It’s spring! Time to open the windows, air outthe house, and clean those dirty corners and clut-tered closets. In the process you will find oldreceipts, junk mail, old tax forms and bank state-ments – stuff that must be tossed, but should betossed with care. In 2012 Michigan ranked 4th inthe nation in identity theft complaints per capita,according to the Federal Trade Commission. Whenit comes to your personal information, you cannever be too careful.That’s why Crossroads Industries in Gaylord isexcited to announce that it will be holding a FreeResidential Shred Day on Saturday, May 11th from9 a.m. until 1 p.m. People can drop off up to threefile boxes full of paper and Crossroads will shred itall – for free! There is no need to remove clips, staples or rub-ber bands from the papers, and those who aredropping things off can even watch as their confi-dential information is shredded to the size thatthe IRS requires for its own document destruction.The confidential information will never be recov-ered since the paper is pulped down and madeinto new products such as tissue and the outsideof cereal boxes. Saturday, May 11th is also the date for this year’sFree Electronics Recycling Day event.Held at the Gaylord Department of Public Worksfrom 9 am to 1 pm, folks can bring in just aboutanything electronic, with the EXCEPTION of devices containing Freon gas such as refrigeratorsand air conditioners. So those old televisions,DVD or VCR players, microwave ovens, game con-trollers, handheld electronic devices, computers,monitors and printers, copiers, fax machines, cellphones and regular phones…they can all be dis-posed of in an environmentally friendly way.New this year, people can also bring batteries,stoves, ranges, water heaters, washers and dryersto be recycled. Sponsored by the City of Gaylordin partnership with Vintage Tech Recyclers…theFree Electronics Recycling event is a great way toget rid of worn out equipment…and make somemore room in the house during spring cleaning.So start sorting now and be ready for these twoexcellent and FREE community events. The FreeResidential Shred Day will take place atCrossroads’ main facility at 2464 Silver Fox Trail inthe new industrial park in Gaylord. The FreeElectronics Recycling event will take place at theCity of Gaylord Department of Public Works,located at 102 East Seventh Street.
