ON A ‘MISSION’
Manistee County to kick-off annual United Way campaign

Doug Bell, director of golf and general manager at Manistee National Golf & Resort, has accepted the challenge of chairing the annual fund drive for United Way of Manistee County. “It’s good timing for me to be able to commit time,” Bell said. “We’ve had a good summer and have been very busy finishing the clubhouse and getting that back on line and then it’s been a good busy summer on the golf course.” This year’s goal will be a bit higher than it has been in the past at $250,000, and Bell said he has high hopes that it will be reached. “I know Corey (Van Fleet, executive director of United Way of Manistee County) has a mission to have to have some pretty substantial initial dollars already committed by the time the campaign kickoff breakfast rolls around, which will make our aggressive goal look that much more attainable,” Bell said. “Honestly, this is going to be kind of a learning curve for me,” he continued. “Do I have a set strategy? No, I’d have to say that right up front. Am I thinking of a few different things that I can contribute that might be new? Yes, with my background in golf, I may be able to work with the golf
“It’s an aggressive goal and it’s got some people thinking. Will people in Manistee County give a little more? I think they’re always willing to if they are approached in the right way. I truly think there are a lot of people out there who don’t think about United Way at all. If we can enlighten some folks who would be willing to give, and inform them on all that it goes to, then I think we have a chance.”

Don’t let the bedbugs bite
Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce
Last week, TV networks had one news segment after another about (heeby-jeeby alert!) bedbugs! Over the weekend, the Today show reported that there was an epidemic of bedbugs throughout the country. The report said that college dorms, movie theaters, hotel and buses were common places for bedbugs to be found and that these yucky little hitchhikers traveled all over the country from there. Uh oh… my son just left for college and my husband and I just got back from a mini-vacation where we stayed in a hotel and went to the theater! Should I be freaking out? And is there something crawling on my leg right now? I wanted to get the real scoop on this, so I called Jim Rutherford, from Action Termite and Pest Control, and boy, did I call the right guy! Action travels all over the region and the country to identify and eliminate bedbugs. They’ve even created an organization called the Action Canine Inspection Network to train dogs to sniff out these nasty creatures. The bad news — bedbugs are hitchhikers that eat blood, they’re about the size of an apple seed and they can slip through openings as narrow as the thickness of a credit card, and the females lay four or five eggs a day. Just before I started hyperventilating, Jim gave me some good news. Temperatures above 113 degrees can kill bedbugs, so putting dirty clothes straight from your vacation suitcase in the dryer on high heat can help stop an infestation. I also learned that bedbug detection experts named Jack, BB and Nosy can identify the presence of a single bedbug and the human experts can eliminate them.
I know it’s a gross column, but there’s a reason for sharing it. If there’s an epidemic, it’s good to know that one of the country’s experts is right here in Manistee.

Randy and Patty Spencer, Brethren Bungalows, would like to share an experience they recently had with a fellow member of the chamber. “Last week I had to travel out of Manistee for a family emergency.

Most widely known for his roles on screen, Jeff Daniels has garnered critical acclaim in many films including “The Purple Rose of Cairo” and “The Squid And The Whale.” On stage, he was most recently nominated for a Tony Award in the Broadway play “God of Carnage.” Now, Jeff Daniels is gaining notoriety as a musician for his unique and spontaneous one-man show which returns to the road on Aug. 20. The show will be making a local stop on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at Manistee’s historic Ramsdell Theatre as a part of the West Shore Community College Performing Arts Series. With four albums to his credit, Live & Unplugged, Grandfather’s Hat (2006), Together Again (2007) a collaboration with Jonathan Hogan, and Live At The Purple Rose (2009), Daniels is not just another actor turns singer/songSee DANIELS page 4

writer. “While I’m very aware many come to see the actor from ‘Dumb and Dumber’ or ‘Gettysburg’ or whatever, but they leave saying, ‘I had no idea he could play or sing.’ “I bought a guitar when I moved to New York City in 1976. Lonely and out of work, I dove head first into Stefan Grossman’s Guitar Tablature Books and just started writing and playing away my solitary misery. This little diversion lasted for decades. “So, for those considering doing this kind of thing, I highly recommend rehearsing for 30 years to get yourself ready.” After a 2009 concert at the City Winery in New York City, New York Post critic Dan Aquilante wrote, “(Daniels’) voice is flexible enough to ape Lyle Lovett in one tune and conjure Springsteen in the next. And his songwriting is clever, funny and has an eccentric attitude. “The best moments were when he reprised his song ‘The Dirty Harry Blues,’ which he wrote about his work playing the villain in Clint Eastwood’s film ‘Blood Work.’ In his patter before the tune, Daniels gushed: ‘You don’t know what an honor it is for an actor to get killed by Clint.’ Daniels learned something from the master: At this show he killed, too.” Born and raised in Michigan, Daniels returned

Besides, I’m hardly alone out there. The actor with comic timing and stage presence is with me; the playwright who’s written 14 plays guides the storytelling, the musician who’s taken an acoustic guitar and turned it into an obsession, as well as the director who’s helmed film and stage productions; all those guys are with me. “Creatively, when I grab my guitar and walk out in front of an audience, I feel as if I’m finally using all of myself.” Daniels’ show at the Ramsdell will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $28.50 and can be purchased by calling the West Shore Community College box office at (231) 843-5507 or online at: www.ramsdell-theater.org.

home in 1986 after starring in Woody Allen’s film, “The Purple Rose of Cairo.” There, he realized his dream of creating a professional theater company featuring Midwestern actors, directors, designers and playwrights situated in the middle of America producing plays about middle America: The Purple Rose Theater. To raise money for the Purple Rose, Daniels performs his show for two weeks every Christmas and New Year’s. Nine years and over $500,000 later, he decided his show could travel. “What started out as a way to raise money has now become something I really enjoy doing,” he said. “If I’m having fun out there, so
does the audience. That’s the thing about my show; I never know what’s going to happen next. “Every night, I have a set list with far too many songs on it. If the audience wants to listen, great. If they want to laugh, fine. If the guitar players want to see ‘actor boy’ get up and down the neck, I can do that, too. “Unlike Broadway where the play is pretty much the same every night, the exciting thing about doing this show is embracing the unpredictability of it. It makes playing live alive. Audiences feed off the excitement in that.” When asked why he doesn’t tour with a band, Daniels said, “Scheduling rehearsals is far easier when there’s only one of you.

ferent service clubs, but my duties and responsibilities at the golf course have just been too intense,” Bell said. “So, when I talked with Corey, he filled me in on what the position entails and the team that has been set up and I felt like, if he thought I could do it, then I’ll put my best effort into it.” Bell, who is from the Cadillac area, first worked in Manistee County as the golf professional at Bear Lake County Highlands from 1992 through 1994. In 1999, he joined Manistee National right after new owners purchased the course that had been established as Cobi Pines Golf Course. “There is a good struc-

ture in place for this campaign, so I’m excited about it. If it was, ‘here, Doug, here’s the goal, go do it,’ I don’t know that I would have said yes because I am going to learn. Corey has filled me in quite a bit to this point but the first half dozen meetings I’m going to go to, I’m going to learn a lot more than I know now. “It’s an aggressive goal and it’s got some people thinking,” Bell said. “Will people in Manistee County give a little more? I think they’re always willing to if they are approached in the right way. I truly think there are a lot of people out there who don’t think about United Way at all. If we can enlighten some folks who would be willing to give, and inform them on all that it goes to, then I think we have a chance. People don’t really know how big it is and how many people the organization touches.” Last year, United Way of Manistee County raised $190,000 and dispersed funds to 12 agencies — Alternatives for Area Youth, American Red Cross, ARC of Manistee County, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boy Scouts, CHOICES, Girl Scouts, Manistee County 4-H, Manistee Recreation Association, Salvation Army, Staircase Youth Services and Manistee County 2-1-1. Bell is well known in the golf world. He is a past board member of the Michigan Section PGA and is currently a committee member with the Michigan Section PGA. He has won an award from the Michigan Section PGA as the resort merchandiser of the year and has served as the past president of the Northern Michigan PGA. He has a weekly local radio program, “Golf Talk Thursday,” which promotes all of the charity golf events at local courses. During the peak of the season, Manistee National Golf & Resort employs 65 people in all three operations — two golf courses, a hotel, and the Grille restaurant. Bell and his wife, Ann, have two children — Hannah, 15, and Blake, 13. He is a private pilot, having built his own airplane. “My family enjoys all that Manistee County has to offer as much as we can,” he said.

There are many things seniors can do to prevent sore and painful joints.
Nine ways for senior citizens to relieve joint stress and pain
Whether you’re walking along Manistee Riverwalk, or hiking in the Manistee National Forest, if you’re a senior citizen, such strolls can wreck havoc on your joints. It happens to almost all senior citizens — joint pain from a lifetime of lifting, bending and normal wear and tear. Beyond medication, there are steps you can take to relieve stress while going about your daily activities, according to the Cleveland Clinic. If you’ve lived long enough, inflammation in the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and wrist can cause pain, swelling and limited motion. If you have joint pain or suffer from arthritis, no doubt you’ve already been prescribed medication by your doctor to reduce these symptoms. But there’s a lot you can do yourself — apart from taking your medication — to lessen joint pain. What can you do: 1. Control your weight. Obesity puts extra stress on weight-bearing joints, such as the back, hips, knees and feet. 2. Be aware of body position, using good posture to protect your back and the joints of your legs and feet. Whenever possible, sit down to perform a job instead of standing. Change position often, since staying in one position for an extended period tends to increase stiffness and pain. 3. Conserve energy by allowing for rest periods during the workday and while performing any activity. 4. Respect pain. It’s your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Don’t involve yourself in an activity that puts strain on joints that are already painful or stiff. 5. Use care when getting in and out of a car, chair, or tub, as well as for climbing, lifting, carrying, pulling, or pushing objects. Think before you strain. Tip: Try to always sit in the highest chair in the room, and look for chairs with armrests to make it easier to get up. 6. Use your strongest joints and muscles to reduce the stress on your smaller joints. For example, carry a purse, handbag, or briefcase by its shoulder strap rather than by its handle. 7. Distribute pressure to minimize stress on any single joint. Lift dishes with both of your palms rather than with your fingers, and carry heavy loads in your arms instead of with your hands. 8. Avoid tight gripping, pinching, squeezing and twisting if your hands are affected by arthritis. Ways to accomplish the same tasks

MDCH confirms third human Eastern Equine One good punch leads to one good friendship Encephalitis Case
LANSING — The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) confirmed a third case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in Barry County on Monday. A 52-year-old woman, who first fell ill in late July and was hospitalized, is in a rehabilitation center recovering from the illness. The previous two human cases of EEE are in Kalamazoo County. A 61-year-old man is home recovering from the illness while a 41-year-old man is in intensive care in a Kalamazoo County hospital. All human cases have a history of local exposure to mosquitoes. These are the first human cases reported in Michigan since 2002. No further details about the three cases are being released. The MDCH and the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) are continuing to receive reports of cases of EEE in horses in Southwest Michigan, including Barry, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, and St. Joseph counties. EEE is one of the most dangerous mosquito-borne diseases in the U.S., killing one third of those hospitalized with the infection, and often leaving survivors with lasting brain damage. In the face of this ongoing outbreak, Michigan residents are urged to take precautions against mosquito bites. A virus of birds that is spread by mosquitoes, EEE is a rare illness in humans. Only a few human cases are reported each year in the U.S. People who become ill with EEE may experience fever, headache, chills and nausea. EEE is spread by mosquitoes and causes inflammation of the horses’ brains and leads to death in up to 90 percent of the cases. People cannot get the disease from horses, only from mosquitoes. Steps people should take to protect themselves include: ■ Use repellent: When outdoors, use insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus on exposed skin and/or clothing. The repellent/ insecticide permethrin can be used on clothing to protect through several washes. Always follow the directions on the product label. ■ Stay indoors when mosquitoes are biting: Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn. ■ Wear protective clothing: Wear long sleeves and pants when weather permits. ■ Install and repair screens: Have secure, intact screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out. ■ Keep mosquitoes from laying eggs near you: Mosquitoes can lay eggs even in small amounts of standing water. After all these years, I still get my primary local news, from local newspapers. A few months ago, I read my local hometown weekly newspaper and I learned a childhood friend — a fellow classmate — had died after battling cancer. Gary was one of the nicest guys I’d ever known. Everyone liked him. He was kind, funny, a good athlete and the only problem he and I ever had was our junior year when he unseated me as “Class Clown.” That hurt. My heart sank as I read Gary’s obituary in the Reed City newspaper. I’ve written dozens and dozens of obituaries during my 35-year newspaper career — probably even hundreds of ‘em — and it still hurts to read ‘em. That hurt, too. Funny, the only fist fight I ever got into high school, was with Gary. Just one fist was thrown, ten that week — he always liked them — and he’d always ask me how my David L. kids were doing. Barber Then, if he wasn’t Managing smacking the ball over the Editor fence, he’d smack it off the 398-3113 firstname.lastname@example.org fence and leg out a double, or triple. and it wasn’t mine. All the time, he’d be Did I tell you that wearing a grin as wide as hurt? the infield, itself. Then, that closed fist Good golly, but Gary became an open hand — liked to smile, laugh and an open hand that reached have a good time. down to pick me up.

He became a me what’s happening back pretty good slow-pitch softball player in Reed City, while I became an umpire. Whenever Gary came to the plate, he’d always have something kind to say. He’d comment about a column or story I’d writin Reed City. So when I read Gary’s obituary after the fact — his funeral had come and gone — I was especially crushed. I would have liked to have had the opportunity, one last time, to say thank you, and good-bye. And I would have liked to have told him that it wasn’t his one punch that I remember so much, but that he reached down, to help me up, brush me off and extend an olive branch. After all, I had provoked the fight, and Gary finished it. Then, in typical Gary fashion, he reached down, helped me up, and smiled. I would have liked to have thanked him for doing that, too.
