VANDERBILT – If there’s
one thing Black Bear Golf
Club General Manager Ian
Murphy would like folks to
know, it’s very simple: “We’re
here, we’re open, we’re fun
and we’re very affordable.”
The popular Black Bear
19-hole course opened to
the public in 1996 and has
been a favorite destination
of local and visiting golfers
ever since. The Black Bear,
one of the founding mem-
bers of the Gaylord Golf
Mecca, is located just eight
miles north of Gaylord and
directly off Exit 290 on I-75.
It has maintained a strong
local connection that con-
tinues to this day.
Murphy is a 1997 Gaylord
graduate who cut his teeth
on the local courses growing
up. His first job, in fact, was
picking the balls at the
Michaywe driving range for
Mike Husby back in the day.
Ian was employed in various
capacities at Marsh Ridge,
The Loon and The Tribute
prior to being hired a few
years by former Black Bear
GM and Golf Pro Jack Clark
to serve as Jack’s assistant
GM. After being groomed
personally by Jack, Ian took
over as the Black Bear GM
about halfway through last
summer and now oversees
the whole operation.
Black Bear PGA Teaching
Pro Jade Wambold is also a
Gaylord product and a for-
mer wrestling star for the
Blue Devils and legendary
coach Jerry LaJoie.
Wambold, a U.S. Navy veter-
an and 2001 Gaylord grad,
also shined on the golf links
for the Blue Devils under
longtime coach Tom
Johnson.
Black Bear Superintendent
Ryan Holmes is also a
Gaylord product and a for-
mer standout golfer and
skier for the Blue Devils.
“We’re all locals and we’re
all very familiar with the
golfing industry in the area
and the needs and wants of
the golfers we serve,”
Murphy said. “We have a
great product here and we
extend a warm invitation to
those who haven’t visited us
yet to come and see what we
have to offer.”
The course features a mix
of Scottish links and the tra-
ditional Alpine holes with
the elevated tees. There are
four tee boxes of varying dis-
tances for each hole. The
Black Bear is known for its
undulating hills, its majestic
views and its very challeng-
ing greens. The diversified
terrain also boasts the tree-
lined fairways that northern
Michigan courses are noted
for.
The course is not the
longest in the region (6,663
from the black tees) but it’s
challenging enough to give a
low-handicap golfer a very
good test, especially with the
irons and putter, and at the
same time it’s an excellent
course for beginners to the
sport.
“From tee to green, no
matter what tee box or abili-
ty level, it’s a great course to
play,” Murphy said. “It plays
differently from each of
those (tee box) positions. It’s
just a fun course; you get to
use all the clubs in your bag.
There are a few blind tee
shots which add to the diffi-
culty as well. And the greens
are very challenging.”
The signature hole of the
course is the par-4 17th,
which plays 378 yards from
the black tees, 350 from the
white, 308 from the gold and
239 from the red. From the
tee box, there is a scenic
view of the rest of the course
and also of the surrounding
Sturgeon River Valley.
The Black Bear consistent-
ly gets high ratings from
golfers and has achieved a 4-
star rating from Golf Digest.
A comment that appeared
recently on the Black Bear
Facebook page from Ronald
Hoig Jr. is typical: "Best golf-
ing course in all of Michigan.
Good for the pros and begin-
ners. Can’t wait to get out
there to play. Love it."
Another distinct feature of
The Black Bear is the 19th
hole. Golfers get a free par-3
practice hole prior to playing
the first tee.
There is also a full-service
practice facility on site,
including a putting green
and a driving range.
The Black Bear Grill is a
full-service restaurant and
bar and grill noted for the
half-pound hamburgers and
chilled beverages. The views
from the clubhouse are
spectacular.
The Black Bear is also
technologically equipped.
It’s the only course in the
area to offer free GPS to
golfers via a Smart phone
app. The GPS allows golfers
to track measurements to
the pin or to a bunker on a
particular hole. It also pro-
vides a live leaderboard,
scorecard, hole tips and
social media interface.
“Right now we’re running
some specials: $35 during
the week and $45 on the
weekend for 19 holes,”
Murphy said. “We’d love to
see you.”

GAYLORD – The Gaylord
boys cross country team
returns three varsity runners
in Josh Green, Sterling
McPherson and Collin
Monusko to a state-qualifying
team the last four years.
We've been one of the top
15 teams in the state the last
four years and we look to con-
tinue the trend this year. Our
region is a bit weaker than it
has been and qualification for
the state finals will depend on
our No. 4 and No. 5 runners.
Who will that be? That's the
big question we'll answer in 80
days.
The Blue Devils have a
number of possibilities to fill
these key slots with some
returning JV runners who have
put in summer miles or some
freshmen boys. I believe Josh,
Sterling and Collin all have a
shot at "all-regional" status –
top 15 at regionals – and state
qualifier status, but that's not
our goal; our goal is to qualify
once again as a team.
The Gaylord girls’ squad will
have some new faces this sea-
son.
After graduating four-year
varsity athletes Katelynn
Dreyer, Maria and Noelle
Warren and Geena Duff, we
will be a different team this
year. Captain Erin Borgeson
returns for a fourth season
along with varsity runners
Grace Porta and Mallory
Marshall after putting in some
great summer training miles.
They'll be joined by new
recruit Lauren Pallas who is
coming off a fine track season
for her first year of cross coun-
try. There are also two transfer
students, Alexis and Katelyn
Smith, who have moved to
Gaylord from Wyoming. These
twins had an outstanding
freshmen season out west and
we're welcoming them with
open arms to our girls team.
The Blue Devils also have a
number of incoming fresh-
men who could make an
impact this season. Last year
as eighth graders the girls
team was nearly unbeatable.
These girls have some great
racing experience and could
step right in to a varsity posi-
tion!
Gaylord harriers young
but strong
GAYLORD – There are sev-
eral significant rules changes
introduced by the Michigan
High School Athletic
Association for football start-
ing this season:
-- Pass interference is no
longer is an automatic first
down if against the defense,
or does it result in a loss of
down if against the offense.
Both are a 15-yard mark off
from the previous spot, and
the down is replayed except
when the penalty against the
defense results in a first
down.
-- If a player’s helmet
comes off during a play, it is
illegal participation and a 15-
yard penalty if that player
continues to participate in a
play; and a personal foul and
a 15-yard penalty if a player
from the opposing team ini-
tiates contact with a player
whose helmet has come off.
-- On a catch, an airborne
receiver whose forward
progress is stopped and is
carried out of bounds by a
defender will be ruled a legal
catch. If the airborne receiv-
er is contacted and driven
out of bounds, the result of
the play is an incomplete
pass.
-- Following a penalty on
the kicking team for kick
catch interference on a fair
catch play, the receiving
team can opt to take a free
kick after the 15-yard penalty
has been enforced.

interference

Some large salmon has been taken also;
good catches of bluegill and sunfish have also been reported in area
Northwest Lower Peninsula
Fishing Report
Some good catches of
bluegill and sunfish have
come from inland lakes in
the area. Bass and pike catch-
es were decent.
Harbor Springs: Is produc-
ing lake trout 100 to 110 feet
down around Harbor Point.
The occasional salmon was
caught up near Five Mile
Point. Try blue and char-
treuse spoons and blue meat
rigs. Those targeting small-
mouth bass caught a mix of
legal and sub-legal fish when
using crawlers, crank baits or
tube baits.
Petoskey: Lake trout were
the most abundant fish
caught however a couple
large salmon were also taken.
The salmon were 80 to 100
feet down in 120 to 130 feet of
water and hitting on spoons
in fire-tiger or glow. Baitfish
were marked in 70 to 130
feet. Lake trout were caught
on spoons 95 to 110 feet
down between Bay Harbor
and the pier. Those fishing off
the pier caught rock bass, a
couple bluegill and sub-legal
smallmouth bass.
Bear River: It is true; there
are some salmon and steel-
head jumping at the dam.
Fish have been caught by
those drifting flies or spawn
bags. A couple brown trout
were caught but the fish were
small. Those fishing down
near the mouth caught steel-
head on spawn.
Charlevoix: Pier anglers are
still catching bass but many
are sub-legal. They are fish-
ing near the bottom with
crawlers, leeches and min-
nows. A couple rock bass
were also caught. Salmon
were caught on spoons 70
feet down near the Cement
Plant and North Point. Some
heading down to Cathead
Bay caught a few fish. Lake
trout were caught 100 to 110
feet down in 120 to 140 feet
or suspended about 60 feet
down in 125 feet of water.
Traverse City: Lake trout
were caught in the East Bay
by those trolling in 90 to 130
feet of water. Salmon anglers
were not taking a lot of fish
however the chinook were
over 20 pounds. Try spoons,
plugs or flies 70 to 90 feet
down in 150 feet of water.
Those trolling in the West Bay
caught lake trout and the
occasional chinook salmon
in 100 to 130 feet. Depths
were variable but most were
fishing 50 to 90 feet down.
Smallmouth bass were
caught near the drop-offs.
Elk River: Anglers have
caught some nice small-
mouth bass and rock bass on
plastics, crawlers, or leeches.
Boardman River: Had a few
reports of smallmouth bass
and rock bass hitting on
crawlers.
Northeast Lower Peninsula
Fishing Report
Rogers City: Bad weather
has scattered the fish. When
anglers can get out, they
might want to try up near
Forty Mile Point or south
near Adams Point and Swan
Bay. Baitfish were reported in
40 to 70 feet. Anglers are
using downriggers, lead core,
copper and dipseys about
halfway down. Keep the lines
away from the boat. Good
colors were green, orange,
light blue and silver, yellow
and green or black and white.
Anything that glows was
good early or late.
Presque Isle: Anglers are
heading straight out of the
harbor from the red can and
north between the lighthous-
es. Salmon, steelhead and
walleye were caught about
halfway down in 45 to 130
feet. Focus more on structure
and baitfish instead of water
temperature.
Rockport: Fishing was dif-
ficult as the fish were scat-
tered. Once you find them,
stay in that area. Because of
the strong wind and storms,
there is no pattern at this
time. A few more walleye
were showing up. Scatter
your lines and fish deeper.
Alpena: Walleye fishing in
Thunder Bay was not good as
the fish are scattered and
they have moved out to
deeper water. A couple wall-
eye were caught in 90 feet or
more. Anglers will want to
scatter their lines throughout
the water column.
Thunder Bay River: Catch
rates were slow with only a
few smallmouth bass and
small walleye caught.
Harrisville: Walleye have
been caught in deeper water.
Those able to get out far
enough did catch steelhead.
Try near the surface in 60 to
80 feet. Salmon should start
coming in soon. Lake trout
could be anywhere in the
water column as they tend to
travel to where the baitfish
are.
Oscoda: Catch rates were
hit-or-miss for those heading
straight out, north or south of
the river. Steelhead could be
found near the surface along
the scum lines in 65 to 85
feet. Salmon were caught but
the fish were small at 6 to 10
pounds. Walleye were hitting
on spoons in 80 to 140 feet of
water. Lake trout are top to
bottom. Hot colors were blue
and silver, orange and silver,
or black.
Higgins Lake: Lake trout
were caught by those jigging
Swedish pimples, sand kick-
ers and 5/8 to one ounce
spoons along the bottom.
Those trolling are fishing just
off the bottom in 80 to 100
feet. Perch were caught
around Treasure Island,
Sunken Island and along the
west shore when using min-
nows in 30 to 40 feet. This is
the time of year to catch a lot
of rock bass.
Upper Peninsula Fishing
Report
St. Mary's River: Walleye
were caught in Raber Bay
near Carlton Creek. Anglers
are trolling crawler harnesses
with blue blades. Those
trolling in 28 to 30 feet along
the shipping channel caught
walleye when using bottom
bouncers and crawler har-
nesses. Most of the fish were
caught between Buoy 25 and
the old bell buoy.
DeTour: Chinook, lake
trout and steelhead were
caught between Frying Pan
Island, the No. 3 green can,
the lighthouse and the #2 red
can. Anglers are using silver
and green flashers with small
flies or spoons in black and
chartreuse, purple and yel-
low, white with a red nose, or
green with black dots.
Drummond Island: Had
good catches of walleye and
smallmouth bass in Scott Bay
when fishing on the north-
west side of Peck Island. A
few walleye were caught
around Bay Island in Maxton
Bay when drifting or jigging
crawler harnesses just off the
weed beds in 8 to 12 feet. For
pike, anglers are trolling or
casting chrome spoons in the
weed beds around Grape
Island. Moving west of
Maxton Bay to Sims Point, a
few yellow perch were caught
in 8 to 14 feet around Arrow
Island.
Cedarville and Hessel:
Anglers are targeting perch in
8 to 12 feet of water around
Haven Island. Some nice
catches were reported in
front of the marina dock and
from the east end of Hessel
Bay. Fair catches were taken
in Musky Bay, Middle
Entrance and the Moscoe
Channel. Pike fishing was
very good in Hessel Bay,
Snows Channel, the west end
of Musky Bay, and
Government Bay. Most are
still-fishing chubs. Bass fish-
ing is good all over. Salmon
were fair in the Yacht
Entrance in 40 to 70 feet.
St. Ignace: When they can
get out, boat anglers are fish-
ing from the old fuel tanks,
the flats and the Coast Guard
Station. Fish have been

FIFE LAKE – The gates
opened for another Flyin’
Friday night at Cherry
Raceway, the fastest dirt track
in the state. Fans packed the
grandstands for the program
which included action from
the Auto Value UMP DIRTcar
Late Models, Weller Truck
Parts UMP DIRTcar
Modifieds, Pro Streets,
Factory Stocks, Four-
Cylinder Warriors,
Crossroads Chevrolet
Compacts, and the Hirams
Lightning Sprints.
The Crossroads Chevrolet
Compacts hit the raceway for
their 15-lap main event. The
front row consisted of Jimmie
Brown and 16-year old Calvin
Ingleston. The green flag
dropped and after the open-
ing circuit it was actually 16-
year old Rheanna Doberstein
leading the field. There
would be several cautions in
the early going, but that
would not stop Doberstein as
she held on until the end and
picked up the big win.
This was the Interlochen
driver’s fourth win of the year
in her Cliff’s Auto Repair &
Exhaust / Saturn. Ricky
Wilson, 16, finished second.
Defending track champion
Chris Casey, 14, with
Ingleston, and Brown making
up the top five. Ingleston
won the lone heat race.
Jeff Chalker and Kevin
Newberry led out the Pro
Streets for a 15-lap feature.
Chalker jumped out front
with the lead. He would be
able to remain there until lap
10 when Newberry would
make the pass for the top
spot. Newberry would be
able to pull away from there
and go on to the checkered
flag.
This was the third win of
the year for the 49-year-old
determined driver from
Gaylord in his Diamond
Performance / Chevrolet.
Chalker had to settle for sec-
ond. Joe Fisher, defending
track champion Allen Oyer of
Mancelona, and J.J. Arbour
rounded out the top five. The
lone heat race was won by
Fisher.
The Hirams Lightning
Sprints were then released
for a 15-lap affair with Chuck
Erickson and Justin Ward
making up the front row.
Ward would jump out with
the advantage after lap one.
The race would end up going
caution free and Ward would
maintain a healthy lead over
everyone else and would lead
every lap and get the win.
Ward scored the victory in
his Geno’s Sports Bar and
Grill machine out of
Benzonia. Riley Ramoy took
second. Mack Erickson,
Chuck Erickson, and Paul
Erickson were the rest of the
top five. Ramoy won the lone
heat race and Bruce Dezelski
took the four-car dash.
The Four-Cylinder
Warriors were out next hold-
ing a 15-lap A-main. The
front row was made up of
Jeremy Tulick and Bob
Craycraft. Tulcik took the
lead after lap one. Craycraft
would manage to take the
lead right after that on lap
two. A fierce battle would
continue up front and on lap
eight Andrew Austin of
Manton powered his way to
the front. However he would
suffer mechanical issues and
have to retire, which gave the
lead back to Craycraft, who
went on to win the feature.
This was the first win in the
career of the 53-year old from
Traverse City in the Mojo’s
Coffee-To-Go / Dodge. Tulick
was second. Jim Luhtanen,
Nick Olds, and Austin fin-
ished off the top five. The
heat race was won by Jeremy
Wood.
It was then the Factory
Stocks’ turn for a feature
event which lasted 15 laps.
Peni Lalonde of Lake City
and Richard Cebula Jr. led
the field out to the green flag.
Lalonde was able to take the
lead in the early stages.
However on lap 12 the 2011
track champion Emery Smith
would stride his way up to
the front of the field and he
would not be stopped from
picking up the feature win.
The 41-year old from Fife
Lake scored the win behind
the wheel of his Superior
Inspection Service /
Chevrolet. Lalonde finished
second. Kevin Stricker, Dan
Wierman, and Jeremiah
Woebbeking capped off the
top five.
The Weller Truck Parts
UMP DIRTcar Modifieds
went head-to-head in a 20-
lap contest. John Goodrich
and Greg Gokey made up the
front row. Gokey pulled out
as the leader after the first
lap. He would hold that posi-
tion until lap 16 when he was
passed by Dennis Taghon.
However, two-time track
champion Larry Cade was in
the mix as well and he made
the pass for the lead on lap 18
and then went on to victory
lane.
Cade, the 62-year old from
Buckley, won in his Bisballe
Forrest Products / BMS
Chassis machine. Second
place went to Taghon. Gokey,
Jeremy Metdepenningen,
and Paul Buckler rounded
out the top five. Heat race
wins went to Gokey and
Cade. Buckler set fast time in
qualifying with a time of
14.864.
Finally it was time for the
Auto Value UMP DIRTcar
Super Late Model 20-lap
main event feature. Adam
Erickson and Butch Straight
led the field of cars down to
chief starter Steve
Sherwood’s green flag. Five-
time track champion Eric
Spangler of Lake City was
able to take the lead after the
opening lap. He would
remain there until lap seven,
which was when 2007 track
champion Dona Marcoullier
took the top spot away and
went on unchallenged to vic-
tory lane.
Marcoullier the 29-year old
from Houghton Lake, earned
the victory in his brand new
Northside Towing / Rocket
Chassis. Spangler settled for
second. Erickson, Jim Billett,
and Steve Niewenhuis com-
pleted the top five. Erickson
and Andy Nickerson III took
the heat races. Marcoullier
set fast time in qualifying
with a time of 13.430.

CRAWFORD COUNTY –
Federal dollars are ignit-
ing a new conservation
partnership in northeast
Michigan. Huron Pines, a
nonprofit organization,
recently received $171,000
from the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service’s Joint
Venture Habitat
Restoration and
Protection Program (Joint
Venture Program). The
Great Lakes Restoration
Initiative funding will be
used to plant 2 million
jack pine seedlings in
Kirtland’s warbler man-
agement areas, streamline
community outreach pro-
grams and offer landown-
ers cost-share opportuni-
ties.
The Joint Venture
Program specifically
funds projects that use
innovative partnerships to
complete conservation
work in priority bird areas.
This project marks a new
method of collaboration
with the State of Michigan
in that Huron Pines, act-
ing as the fiduciary, will
provide funds to the
Michigan Department of
Natural Resources (DNR)
offsetting the annual costs
of jack pine planting.
Michigan Audubon
Society (MAS) has a long
history of involvement
with Kirtland’s warbler
education efforts, and will
also be a key partner in
completing the proposed
scope of work. MAS' expe-
rience will be central to
increasing awareness and
support of the warbler’s
incredible story through-
out the state and Great
Lakes region.
Through its Private
Lands Program, Huron
Pines will provide
landowners living in areas
of jack pine ecosystems
technical guidance, better
planning tools and cost-
share opportunities to
achieve their individual
stewardship goals while
blending ecosystem-
appropriate strategies.
This strategic partner-
ship falls in line with the
goals of the Kirtland’s
Warbler Initiative, a pro-
gram developed to usher
the warbler off of the
Endangered Species List
and into a future of suc-
cessful, sustained sur-
vival. Once delisted, fed-
eral funding specifically
provided through the
Endangered Species Act
for Kirtland’s warbler pro-
grams will be allocated to
the needs of other endan-
gered species.
“Recovery of the
Kirtland’s warbler has
been rooted in partner-
ship, and this opportunity
to work closely with
Huron Pines to develop an
innovative funding strate-
gy like the Joint Venture
proposal demonstrates
that continued support
for the warbler can be gar-
nered through the
Initiative and that non-
profit organizations have
the ability to lead the
way,” said Russ Mason,
DNR Wildlife Division
chief.
Joining intensive and
dynamic community out-
reach with on-the-ground
restoration efforts rounds
out the scope of work and
provides built in sustain-
ability for the programs.
Commitment from all
partners has been under-
scored by their agreement
to provide matching dol-
lars from the value of staff
time, travel costs and
seedlings to be planted.
“The commitment by
DNR and MAS to provide
in-kind match means
we’ve already increased
the investment in north-
east Michigan to over
$300,000 with this grant
award,” said Abigail Ertel,
Kirtland’s warbler coordi-
nator for Huron Pines.
Daniel Kennedy, endan-
gered species coordinator
with the DNR Wildlife
Division, added, “The
department understands
that management of pub-
lic lands is a key factor in
the quality of life and
economy of northeast
Michigan and is excited to
provide this up-front
commitment to the area.”
Huron Pines is a conser-
vation nonprofit working
to conserve the forests,
lakes and streams of
northeast Michigan. With
a proven track record of
bringing together multi-
ple partners to complete
high-impact conservation
projects, the organization
leveraged investment in
the region to over $2 mil-
lion annually.
Funding for the
Kirtland’s Warbler
Initiative is made possible
through a grant from the
National Fish and Wildlife
Foundation. For more
information on the work
Huron Pines is complet-
ing as part of these grants

LANSING – The
Department of Natural
Resources announced this
week the totals from its
annual walleye rearing
pond harvest and stocking
of walleye fingerlings. The
DNR Fisheries Division
stocked 4,160,502 walleye
fingerlings in 120 water
bodies located throughout
Michigan this spring and
summer.
Walleye ponds are a criti-
cal component of the DNR’s
coolwater fisheries manage-
ment and have been used
extensively since the mid-
1970s. A total of 30 walleye
ponds located throughout
Michigan were used this
year, and most rely heavily
on the support of local
sportsmen organizations.
These organizations assist
with the ponds’ finances
and supply volunteers to
help with fertilization, pond
maintenance and fish har-
vest.
Eggs are taken from adult
walleye from the Muskegon
River and Little Bay De Noc.
These eggs are hatched at
Thompson and Wolf Lake
state fish hatcheries. A few
days after hatching, the lar-
val walleyes are moved from
the state fish hatcheries to
walleye ponds. Walleye are
reared in these ponds for 50
to 60 days, where they eat
tiny aquatic animals called
zooplankton. They are then
harvested and stocked into
public waters when they are
1.5 to 2 inches long. These
fish will grow to legal size in
four to five years.
"We appreciate the many
local angling groups that
join us in rearing and stock-
ing walleye," said Gary
Whelan, the DNR's fish pro-
duction manager. "These
annual efforts allow us to
enhance fishing opportuni-
ties in Michigan."
Several of the DNR’s fish-
eries management units are
still rearing walleye to be
stocked this fall at an even
larger size. To find out if
walleye were stocked in
your favorite fishing spot,
visit the DNR’s fish stocking
database at www.michi-
gandnr. com/fishstock.

ROSCOMMON – The
Department of Natural
Resources will host an open
house on Sept. 11 in
Roscommon to provide
information and receive
public comment on pro-
posed forest management
treatments for 2015 in the
Roscommon management
unit, which includes
Roscommon and Ogemaw
counties. The open house is
set for:
Wednesday, Sept. 11, 4 to 7
p.m.
Roscommon Field Office,
(just off I-75 exit 239, behind
the Roscommon Operations
Service Center) at 8717 N.
Roscommon Road
Each year, DNR personnel
evaluate one-tenth of the
state forest. The inventory
provides key decision-mak-
ing information for foresters
and wildlife, fisheries and
other resource managers.
The age, health, quality and
quantity of trees and other
vegetation are assessed to
enable DNR staff to make
informed decisions. Timber
management, wildlife and
fisheries habitat, minerals,
archeological sites, recre-
ational use, wildfire potential
and social concerns are just
some of the topics taken into
consideration during this
review.
Because the forest is inven-
toried approximately two
years in advance, a year of
entry is assigned to indicate
when treatments will be pre-
pared. Information currently
under review has a 2015 year
of entry. This means that
treatment activities on lands
being reviewed this year will
actually begin in 2015.
Proposed treatments,
which may include timber
harvesting, replanting and
other management activities,
are designed to ensure the
sustainability of all forest
resources.
Bill O’Neill, chief of the
DNR’s Forest Resources
Division, said these open
houses are a good way for
interested residents, neigh-
bors and stakeholders to
learn – well in advance –
about the DNR’s proposed
treatment plans and to share
input toward final decisions
on those treatments.
“This is an excellent
opportunity for the public to
weigh in on what the DNR is
doing to sustainably manage
Michigan’s state forest land,”
said O’Neill, who also serves
as state forester. “Interested
folks can take a look at pro-
posed management plans
and talk face-to-face with
foresters and biologists
about their questions and
concerns. Having active part-
ners in the management of
our state forests is crucial to
meeting the recreation, eco-
nomic and conservation
needs of current and future
generations.”
To more easily and effi-
ciently oversee the forest
resources, the DNR divides
each management unit into
smaller units or "compart-
ments." This year, the com-
partments under review are
in Lyon, Lake, Gerrish,
Higgins, AuSable, Richfield,
Backus, Nestor, Roscommon
and Denton townships
(Roscommon County); and
Foster and Rose townships
(Ogemaw County).
Maps and information
regarding proposed treat-
ments will be available at the
open house. The information
can also be found at
www.michigan.gov/forest-
plan. Compartment review
packets for the 2015 year of
entry can be found by select-
ing the shown map and click-
ing on the “Roscommon”
button. Records of decisions,
recorded timber harvests and
other treatments for past
years are available on this
page.
On Oct. 23, the DNR will
complete its formal compart-
ment review to decide on
final treatment plans for
these areas. That review will
take place:

Many anglers would agree
there's an excitement that
comes when you're using top-
water techniques to target bass.
There's something to be said
for seeing a bass strike your lure
with your own two eyes.
But how do you fish for this
species on top of the water? It
mostly comes down to location
and lure selection.
Target areas that provide
good cover for the bass that
have a few feet of water over
them, such as weedbeds, logs,
big rocks, etc. Cast a floating
lure next to the cover and play
with a bit before reeling it in.
When it comes to lures, select
those that float and are
designed to resemble the
favorite foods of bass, such as
frogs.
Also, top water fishing for
bass works best in low-light
conditions such as early in the
morning or late in the evening.
For more information on
fishing for bass in Michigan,
visit the DNR's Michigan Fish
and How to Catch Them web-
site.
DNR fishing tip
Catching bass on top
of water
Location and lure selection are key for using

The 2013 Ford Focus earned a Top
Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance
Institute for Highway Safety. Focus is one
of six vehicles in the small car segment to
achieve IIHS’s highest rating.
Top Safety Pick is a new category in the
IIHS ratings. Vehicles must earn a “good”
rating for occupant protection in four
evaluations: moderate overlap frontal
crash, side impact, rollover, and
seats/head restraints. The tests are
scored “good,” “acceptable,” “marginal”
or “poor.” In addition, vehicles must
achieve “good” or “acceptable” in a fifth
test – small overlap frontal crash. Focus
was rated “good” in each of the first four
tests and “acceptable” in the small over-
lap frontal crash.
“Ford is committed to designing vehi-
cles that help keep people safe,” said
Steve Kenner, global director of Ford’s
Automotive Safety Office. “We are con-
stantly seeking innovative ways to help
drivers avoid accidents and keep occu-
pants safe when an incident does occur.”
With families in mind, Ford took a
holistic approach to safety when design-
ing the Focus – from its ultra-high-
strength steel structure to advanced safe-
ty technologies. This approach also
helped the small car earn top safety rat-
ings from the federal government. The
2013 and 2014 Ford Focus sedan and
hatchback, and the 2013 Focus Electric
were each awarded a five-star Overall
Vehicle Score from the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration.
The body structure of the Focus is
engineered to be highly protective. It
makes extensive use of high-strength and
ultra-high-strength steels that to help
protect the passenger cabin in a colli-
sion. Boron steel in the Focus’ structure
absorbs and redirects crash forces to
protect vehicle occupants in the event of
a crash.
Focus also features Ford’s MyKey®
technology, an industry exclusive. MyKey
is designed for families with teen drivers
and can be programed to limit audio sys-
tem volume, to limit top vehicle speed,
and to encourage teens to wear their
safety belts with the use of chimes and
by muting the radio if the front-row safe-
ty belts are not buckled. MyKey is stan-
dard on the 2013 Focus.

Outdoors, an open deck overlooks the fabulous grounds,
which include a fire pit, children’s play area, fenced garden area
and even a custom birdhouse. While this certainly feels like the
heart of the country, it is also just a short distance from town.

Clear the
Clutter and
Sell Your
House
Compliments of Ed Wohlfiel
Part 1 of 2
You don’t have to be a minimalist when it
comes to your decor but if you want to sell
your home, your chances improve greatly if
you get rid of the clutter.
While curb appeal speaks volumes, once
potential buyers enter your house, you want
them to be able to picture themselves in it.
And they can’t do that if your stuff is spilling
out all over the place. Clutter is confusion to
prospective buyers and that puts you at a
disadvantage right away.
If you’re living in a cluttered home, you
may not be able to see disarray. You see sen-
timental things, memories of your beloved
grandparents, or knick-knacks from a great
vacation; the buyer, on the other hand, sees
chaos. They can’t separate the house from
the clutter and in a market where there are
more homes than buyers, you need every
advantage you can get.
Even if your house is clean, having stuff
crammed in every nook and cranny is visu-
ally unappealing.
What to do?
Well, you don’t need to hire a stager, at
least not initially, but you should consider
renting a storage space and clear everything
out.
Make the house neutral. Make it possible
for buyers to mentally move their own
belongings in.
As with any type of decluttering project,
make piles of things you’re going to save,
things you’re going to donate, and things
you’re going to throw away. Be ruthless.
There’s a lot of money at stake, after all,
especially if you need to sell your house fast.
Call a local charity to pick up your items or
drop them off yourself. If you can absolutely,
without a doubt have a garage sale or sell
items, you can do that as well but it might be
best if you can just say goodbye to what you
don’t need any more and give to a charitable
organization. Yard sales take time and
organization that you might not have during
the selling process.
Keep what you’re going to save and store
it. You’re not getting rid of it, you’re just get-
ting it out of sight.
And throw things away. Really. It's time.
