cine. In 1936, he started Carson City Hospi

 vice area. The deadline to submit a design isNov. 29, 2010.“It’s so fascinating to think back onDr. Binkert having a vision for this hospi
-
tal, and to look at its humble beginnings in
small home compared to the state-of-the-art health-care facility we have today,” saidJennifer Churchill, Carson City Hospital’s
Public Relations Manager. “I think Dr.Binkert would be proud.”

-ebration is “Caring for Generations,” andthe contest is open to any student, K-12, ina public or private school in the Carson City Hospital service area, which includes por-
tions of Clinton, Gratiot, Ionia and Mont

Newaygo High School band preps for state competition
Congratulations to the Newaygo High
School Marching Band on their rst-place victory at the West Shore Invitationalheld on Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Rock 
-
ford High School. The Marching Lions
Band also brought home all three captionawards for best music, best marching,
and best general effect. This was their
third competition in the MCBA (Michigan
Competing Band Association) where they 
competed with bands representing Kent
City, Hartford, Comstock Park, Parch
-
ment, Watervliet, Belding, Grant andGodwin Heights. After this competition,they are ranked rst in the state goinginto state nals to be held on Saturday,Nov. 6 at Ford Field in Detroit.
The Michigan Competing Band As-
sociation is a Michigan non-prot corpo
-ration dedicated to the promotion of in-strumental music education in Michigan
schools. Bands are divided into Flights based on their school enrollment. This isadjusted every year based on how many  bands commit to competing in MCBA.
They split bands into four “Flights,”
Flight I, II, III, and IV.
MCBA competitions are scored slight-ly differently than scholastic competi-
tions. The judging starts at 0.0 and thereare seven judges: music individual, music
ensemble, music effect 1, music effect 2, visual individual, visual ensemble, and
 visual effect. The music and visual indi
-
 vidual judges are on the eld with the stu
-
dents, while the remaining judges watchfrom the press box area. The music in
-dividual and music ensemble scores are
added together for the music total. The
same goes for the visual individual and
 visual ensemble scores. The music effects
scores and the visual effect score are add-ed together to create the general effectscore, and then the three totaled scores
are added to reach the nal score. Awards
are given for best music, best visual, and
 best general effect.
There is a state championship held
each year. The top 11 scoring bands in
each Flight are invited to participate in
these nals. These top 11 bands are de
-termined by their Championship Average
Score.
