In a quiet sort of way, the men andwomen of Rolling Thunder more than liveup to their name.Like silent sentinels — vigilant van-guards dedicated to preserving the liberat-ing spirit of those who marched beforethem — they solemnly stand guard overtheir resting and honored comrades.They do little things for their fellow veterans, like serve ‘em ice cream, cakeand coffee.They hold their hands and listen totheir stories. And, at day’s end, they often exchangemeaningful salutes with those veterans— finger tips to eyebrow, their eyes fixedwith a message of appreciation.But it is for the ones who didn’t comeback — the American warriors who arestill missing in action, or even prisoners of war — that cause the members of RollingThunder to roar like, well, thunder.“When one American is not worth theeffort to be found, we, as Americans, havelost,” said John Stocki, former presidentand current member of the ManisteeCounty Chapter of Rolling Thunder.Each year, members of the Manisteechapter present POW/MIA flags to areaschools, governments, businesses andmore. The black and white flag has becomeone of the most recognized and honored

Last week, my hus-and and I visited ouron David, who’s anngineering studentt the University of assachusetts. I lived inhe north of Boston areaor 18 years, but it wasat’s first visit, so it wasun to show him aroundhe “cradle of liberty” andake him to all our favoritelaces.It’s no surprise to any-ne to hear that most of  y favorite places involveood! Parts of our visitere wonderful — Fanueilall marketplace, theemetery where Samueldams, John Hancock andother Goose are buried,twin boiled lobsters forless than $20, the AtlanticOcean, clam chowder, a winning football team — but parts of our trip werenot that great.In the north of Bostonarea, it takes about 20minutes to travel four orfive miles. When you getto your destination, there’sno place to park. Youcannot pahk youh cah inHahvahd yahd! When you finally dopark, you never see anyone you know, even if you’re at your favorite restaurant.I missed home. I’m gladto come home to a place where five miles takes fiveminutes. I’m glad to livein a place where squirrelsaren’t the only wildlife youever see. Most of all, I’mglad to go places and seepeople I know. You know the expres-sion, “it’s a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want tolive there?” For almost 20 years I lived in Boston and visited western Michigan.Now, I live here and visitBoston. It’s so much betterthis way!May your arm be steady and your aim be true this week!

Local Residents in Amazement YesterdayAs Collectors Provide AStimulus Package to Manistee!
By KEN MCINTOSH
STAFF WRITER
ICCA will be placing ads in newspapers, radioand running television spots this week askingpeople to bring in any old silver and gold coinsmade before 1965. Those that do bring in theircoins will be able to speak with collectors oneon one and have their coins looked at with anexpert set of eyes. With the help of these ICCAmembers oers will be made to those thathave coins made before 1965. Oers will bemade based on silver or gold content and therarity of the coins. All coins made before 1965will be examined and purchased includinggold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all typesof nickels and pennies, Those that decide tosell their coins will be paid on the spot.If you are like a lot of people you might havea few old coins or even a coee can full lyingaround. If you have ever wondered what theyare worth, now might be your chance to nd outand even sell them if you choose. They couldbe worth a lot according to the InternationalCoin Collectors Association also known as ICCA.Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins andcurrency for their collections. If they are rareenough, one coin could be worth over $100,000according to Eric Helms coin collector and ICCAmember. One ultra rare dime an 1894S Barbersold for a record $1.9 million to a collector inJuly of 2007. While that is an extreme example,many rare and valuable coins are stashed awayin dresser drawers or lock boxes around thecountry. The ICCA and its collector membershave organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. “Even commoncoins can be worth a signicant amount due tothe high price of silver and gold,” says Helms.Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimesand worth many times their face value. Recentsilver markets have driven the price up on evencommon coins made of silver. Helms explains:all half dollars, quarter and dimes made before1965 contain 90% silver and are sought afterany time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellersmarket he said. The rarest coins these collectors are lookingfor include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coinsand any coin made before 1850. These coinsalways bring big premiums according to theICCA. Silver dollars are also very sought afternowadays.Other types of items the ICCA will bepurchasing during this event include U.S.currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silverbars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreigncoins are sought after and will be purchased.Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewelry, dental gold or anything made of goldon the spot. Gold is currently trading at over$1,100.00 per ounce near an all time high.Bring anything you think might be gold andthe collectors will examine, test and price it forfree. If you decide to sell you will be paid onthe spot – it has been an unknown fact thatcoin dealers have always paid more for jewelryand scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn
brokers.So whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection yourecently inherited you can talk to thesecollectors for free and if your lucky you mayhave a rarity worth thousands. Either way,there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!For more information on thisevent visit the ICCA website at www.internationalcoincollectors.com.
