MANISTEE — It washard to tell if there wasa future Hemingway,Fitzgerald, or Grishamsitting amongst the seaof smiling young faces atthe Manistee IntermediateSchool District Gifted andTalented Program’s YoungAuthors program, but onething that was certain isall of the those aspiringauthors had a true love of reading and writing.The Manistee ISD hasbeen running this popu-lar program for nearly adecade now, and it encour-ages children to exploretheir creative nature. TheISD’s Kim Rinehart saidthat every teacher andstudent takes a slightly different approach to thepopular program whenthey bring it into theirclassroom.“Basically what we doevery year is provide abare book (essentially atotally blank bound book)to every kindergartenthrough sixth grade classin the county and teacherscan use it however they want,” said Rinehart. “Wecelebrate reading monthin March, so in springwe bring in a Michiganauthor or story teller to doa program for the wholecounty. We invite teachersto send two students perclass and then we break them into three groups,with one being kinder-garten and first grade,another being second andthird grade students, andthe last group being fourththrough sixth grade.”Students came tothe program from theJefferson, Kennedy,Madison, Manistee MiddleSchool, Kaleva NormanDickson, Manistee CatholicCentral, Bear Lake, Trinity Lutheran and Onekamaschools to take part in theprogram.The author/storytellerthat the ISD brought inthis year was YvonneHealy from Howell, whogave the children a very entertaining and edu-cational experience. It was something that put asmile on the face of all thechildren, and encouragedthem to continue workingon their writing and read-ing skills.“She did a program where the little kids dida lot of word play, story telling, and acting thingsout,” said Rinehart. “They did a lot of work on read-ing and writing and thenreinforced those thingsthrough storytelling.”Healy brought a very unique perspective to theprogram, as she combinedher skills as an actress, writer, reader and story teller keep the youngminds spellbound for anhour of fun.“There are differentparts of literacy, and one istaking in reading and thenputting it back out,” saidHealy. “Another one is oralliteracy, and these are allpart of the local, state, andnational curriculum.

tion is important from thatpoint of view, and I domuch in the schools andthose types of skills need abump from a story teller.”Healy said it is impor-ant to communicate witheople from all walksf life, and she tries toncorporate that into herriting. She explains tohe children that she readsxtensively stories from allround the world that giveer ideas for stories. Thetories in turn move intoform where she is ableo perform them beforeroups like the ManisteeSD’s Young Authors pro-ram. Another unique aspectf the program is parentsere invited to watch therogram along with theirhildren. It is somethinghat Healy said is a very important part of thelearning process.“I am a walking, talk-ing language person,” saidHealy. “It is important forkids to see these things valued by the community,their parents and families,and not just in the class-room as often becomes parfor the course. However, when they get somethingout of the normal like this,it makes it kind of glamor-ous that they are beingacknowledged for writingthese books, and that issomething that is valued.”Healy pointed out intoday’s high-tech worldthe importance of booksand writing is often over-looked by many children,and even some parents.However, the story tellersaid in failing to learn the writing and story tellingskills it is something thatcould have major implica-tions on their technologi-cal world down the road.“It is easy in the tech-nological age for every-thing like this to go by the wayside,” said Healy.“They will really be stuck as to who will make up thegames unless you know the stories behind them.”She said she works with the children gettingthem to tell more stories, be it from an oral perspec-tive or a written one. It isan outlet that allows themto express their feelings,and the more they openup, the better the story  becomes.The long-time story teller and author said thatshe spent the early por-tion of her career workingas a soap opera actressuntil she married and hadchildren. When others saw her enthusiasm in work-ing with her daughters onimproving their literacy skills they encouraged herto take it to a new level.“People heard meencouraging my childrento take books out of thelibrary, and when I wouldteach Sunday School I would bring these types of things into it,” said Healy.She said she loves theopportunity to travel andmeet people and that itadds to her story tellingrepertoire. It is somethingthat has expanded evento include adults thatshe presents for, and the whole concept is to follow an age-old craft of tellinga good story.Something that a largecontingent of ManisteeCounty students learnedabout this week from oneof the best in the field.n

Smart businesses engage their customers
Last week, thechamber staff (DiannaWall, Janette Virtaand I) decided to graba quick dinner beforea Manistee NationalForest Festival planningmeeting scheduled for6 p.m. We chose RiverStreet Station and fromthe moment we walkedin we found ourselvesmesmerized by man-ager Russell, who glee-fully describes himself as “the surliest serverin Manistee County.”I’m not sure I agreewith that self-descrip-tion, since we laughedthrough descriptionsof the soup of the day,dinner specials anda demonstration of the birthday board— a piece of wood thatpatrons sign before they receive their free birth-day dinner. We were there fordinner on a Thursday,but Russell made surewe knew about $5 lunchspecials and open micnights on Wednesdaysto entice us to return.That’s smart business— to engage custom-ers like Russell at RiverStreet Station did. Welive in a small commu-nity and in late wintercustomers are a bitscarce, so it’s essentialto engage every custom-er that walks throughthe door. We’re in the midstof spring-like weatherthis week and a quick glance at the commu-nity events below willconfirm for you thatManistee County busi-nesses are in full swing,with events, Web sites,awards and other waysto engage customersand friends.The business afterhours on Wednesday at Shay’s Chop House,sponsored by Blarney Castle Oil Company, isa sure sign of spring.Can daffodils and tulips be far behind?
