The holidays are
here, which means
it's time for Santa! I
know, most of you
believe Santa
arrives the night
before Christmas,
but he likes to
come out and meet
people ahead of
time too. How else
do you think he
finds out what we
want most off of the
Christmas lists we send him?
Saturday November 30 Santa
will be arriving in Mio. Kids can
come and visit with Santa from
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm at American
Physical Therapy, downtown.
Make sure they let Santa know
what the want for Christmas!
There will be cookies and hot
chocolate for the children to
snack on, and most likely some
goodies for the adults too!
The magnificent Light Parade
starts at dusk, 6:00 pm, long
after the kids are done spending
time with the big guy. Imagine a
parade, floats and all, coming
down the street in the dark, cov-
ered with all kinds of Christmas
lights. That's what you get when
you come to the Holiday Light
Parade. It's an amazing site.
Santa and his wife will be walk-
ing in the parade too. The
parade is followed by Santa
lighting the Christmas Tree at
the courthouse.
It's a great night for chil-
dren and adults, and a great
way to ring in the Christmas
season. Just make sure
everyone dresses warm!

Center Resale Shop
is located at 8888

Stafford’s
Holiday Parade in
Petoskey
By Heather DeLong
An open house was held last Wednesday
night at City Hall to present the proposal to
renovate Downtown Gaylord. The plan is to
transform downtown into a pedestrian
friendly area that will positively impact the
community, bring people together and pro-
mote business growth. Nearly one hundred
people gathered in City Hall, prepared with
listening ears and questions about the pro-
posal.
Plans for the downtown makeover include
a narrowing of Main Street to three lanes,
providing a more people-friendly walkway
for locals and visitors to shop and enjoy a
day on the town. The area will be aesthetical-
ly pleasing, giving businesses new life and
the opportunity to thrive. Downtown will be
transformed into the heart of the growing
city.
Another great addition to the streetscape
proposal includes better parking accommo-
dations, gateways into the downtown district
and a transformation of the Otsego County
Courthouse lawn complete with a fountain
and fire pit.
The estimated $4.4 million renovation cost
was among the public concerns as well as
traffic disruption and whether or not the
community would benefit from the million
dollar makeover, although $2.45 million of
the cost was predicted to be covered by state
and federal grants. The rest of the funds
would come from the local government, the
Downtown Development Authority tax
increment financing and other local sources.
There are mixed feelings about the
Downtown Gaylord renovation upon com-
pletion. Some believe it will greatly increase
local traffic and sales, while others see it as a
waste of resources and can’t envision a posi-
tive turnaround for the community.
Want your opinions heard on the matter?
There will be another open house for the
streetscape proposal on January 15th at City
Hall. The blueprints will be presented to the
Downtown Development Authority March
4th and the City Council March 24th. You
can also visit the Downtown Renaissance
Facebook page to stay updated on the latest
information at
www.facebook.com/GaylordDowntownRena
issance.

ments, questions or concerns, she can be

T’was the night of Thanksgiving, and all bellies were full
Mom was sorting through ads, it was out of control.
The web pages were open, mouses ready for clicking
Only the greatest deals are what she’d be picking.
The children were pulled up out of their beds
While parents put coats on them, hats on their heads.
And daddy in the driveway scraping ice off his car
Had just planned out the store routes-some near, others far.
When on the TV a commercial they see
Said buy a drill set get the second one free!
In a huge rush, we flew out the door
They never heard a sale quite like this before.
The snow on the roads proved driving unclear
Conditions like this made it harder to steer.
But my family was on a mission, we couldn’t stop now
Dodging minivans, missing mailboxes, we followed a plow.
With turkey inside us, we felt a bit queasy
We knew that Black Friday shopping wouldn’t be easy.
Drivers were speeding like it was a game
My dad gestured and shouted and called them bad names.
“You can’t cut me off like that on a left turn!
I swear winter drivers will just never learn!”
We got to the entrance of the store parking lot
And parked in a really tight far away spot.
Once out of the car, we raced toward the door
Running around other people to get to the store.
The doors were still locked for another two hours
So we waited in line underneath the snow showers.
In what seemed like a day the time finally came
Where we would put last minute shoppers to shame.
Fighting through crowds, pushing our way over and under
In almost an instant we found goods to plunder.
Gift sets, electronics, goodies galore
We’d have to load the car and come back for more!
At this point we’re running on little to no sleep
But it’s hard to resist when these things are so cheap!
We filled up our carts to the top ‘til they spilled
My parents were beyond reasonably thrilled!
They found presents for Grandma, Uncle Bob and Aunt Margaret
They continued until they felt they reached a good target.
No one would forget what we got them this year
Better than caroling; better than story time, gifts are the best kind of cheer!
We grabbed our last bags and got ready to leave
Happy we got deals we never thought we’d achieve.
The car ride back home was busier than before
We’d have to deal with poor drivers once more.
My eyes were starting to close, I was ready for bed
But I was glad we got our holiday shopping done way ahead.
As my parents tucked me in under my covers and said goodnight
I couldn’t get adjusted on my pillow just right.
I kept thinking of the hustle and bustle of the holidays
And tried to picture how it used to be in the old days.
Did people always lose sleep just to get to the store?
Or did the holidays once mean something more?
Remember your loved ones this holiday season
Don’t forget, for your shelter and love, they’re the reason.
Stay safe this year and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Looking to create some holiday magic? There’s nothing
like giving a hand-made gift or creating a holiday keepsake
to make it magical. Crooked Tree Arts Center is offering a
selection of classes that can do just that during the first few
weeks of December.
Gingerbread houses are a holiday tradition. Lori Bolt,
Crooked Tree Arts Center art instructor, will teach a class
where students create their own simple miniature holiday
houses with graham crackers, frosting, and candy. If time
allows, students will also make a keepsake ornament. The
class is for student in grades 3-5.
Students in grades 3-6 can create gifts to give in the class
taught by Maggie VanWagoner. Student will be able to make
several different gifts and choose from several options of
what they’d like to create. They may do a needle felting proj-
ect, a painted drinking glass, or something to surprise you!
For students (grades 1-5) who love construction, instructor
Frank Hasseld, teaches 3-D classes. In the upcoming class,
students are going to build wooden sleds. The students will
use simple hand tools in the construction, and if time allows
will decorate their sleds with paint.
Keepsake ornaments for the tree are the theme of instruc-
tor Renee’ Golovich’s class. Children in Kindergarten – 2nd
grade can create treasured ornaments to keep or give as gifts.
Classes for preschoolers also highlight the holidays.
Cortney Beck will be instructing the young ones in an intro-
duction to the Nutcracker. They will discover the enchanting
world of the Nutcracker with age appropriate music, a craft,
and the story. Preschoolers can also learn their manners in
a class especially created to make it fun. The class will end
with a tea party where they get to display what they’ve
learned from the manners class.
There’s also the opportunity to work with Jim Beckering in
Crooked Tree Arts Center’s pottery studio to create a
Christmas bowl. Participants will learn to throw a pot on the
potter’s wheel, fire, and glaze their creations. This class is
offered to anyone ages Kindergarten to adult. Any child
under the age of 8 needs to be accompanied by an adult.
To learn more about the classes and to sign up for them,
go to www.crookedtree.org or call 231 347-4337.

Many Northern Michigan residents are
familiar with the outstanding opportunities
provided by the ongoing work of the
Bergmann Center in Charlevoix. The staff at
the non-profit Center assists in building life
skills for individuals with developmental dis-
abilities, with programs that include on-site
job training and employment opportunities,
volunteer opportunities, community aware-
ness, daily living skills and enrichment class-
es.
What many may not be aware of is that
starting in August of 2010, The Bergmann
Center opened a fantastic Resale Shop locat-
ed right next to their main facility on Ance
Road, offering terrific bargains on resale
goods ranging from clothing, furniture and
other household items, to one-of-a-kind new
products created by local individuals.
The shop has many exciting products
made by individuals at the Bergmann
Center; such as fire starters from recycled
material, furniture painted by a local woman
artist, gazing balls made from recycled bow-
ing balls adorned with donated stained glass,
items from clay, handmade jewelry, love
lights made with clear stained glass and can-
dles, and much more.
In addition to a lot of great merchandise,
the Bergmann Center Resale Shop also offers
a great place for individuals in the Center’s
program to learn skills on
the job, such as running a
cash register and processing
inventory. These are valu-
able skills that will continue to provide
rewards for these individuals for years to
come.
The Bergmann Center Resale Shop is
located at 8888 Ance Road in Charlevoix, and
is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 am
to 4 pm, and the staff accepts item donations
during those hours as well.
For additional information call (231) 547-
9624 or visit www.bergmanncenter.org and
follow the Resale Shop link.

TERRIFIC KIDS
All kids are terrific and here at South Maple Elementary, we are acknowledging kids for good character. The Kiwanis club of
Otsego County is helping us with this endeavor. Students who exhibit good behavior by following our school rules will be
recognized by staff for doing so. One student per class will be selected to receive a “Terrific Kid” award, button, and pencil.
The student names will be announced on our morning announcements. They will also have their picture taken to hang on
our “Terrific Kid” bulletin board. This is an excellent opportunity for staff, students, parents and the community to connect
on a social/emotional level because good character is just as important as good grades!

Advertising funds the
WeekIy Choice
We love to run community
announcements and news
releases about all the things
happening in Northern
Michigan in the Weekly
Choice. We help publicize
hundreds of events and

Readers love the fact that the
Weekly Choice is distributed
free to hundreds of locations.

news and sports. Our only
source of revenue comes
from advertising. If your
business or organization has
an advertising budget, be
sure to include the Weekly
Choice in your plans. Our
advertising rates are far less
than most other papers and
your message will reach
readers all across Northern
Michigan. The Weekly Choice
is distributed free of charge
on newsstands to 40 towns
including Gaylord, Petoskey,
Cheboygan, Grayling, Indian
River, Onaway, Mio,

On 25 November, the Zonta Club of
Gaylord Area fought high winds, cold tem-
peratures and snow to honor the United
Nations’ International Day for the
Elimination of Violence Against Women by
assembling a display on the courthouse
lawn. 128 flags were solemnly placed. Each
flag representing one of the reported Otsego
County victims of domestic abuse or sexual
assault from this past year. The Zonta Says
No Banner was displayed behind the flags.
Jessica O’Dell, Victim Advocate for Otsego
County, provided the statistics used by
Zonta. From 10/1/12 to 9/30/13 there were
11 child abuse, 9 criminal sexual conduct
and 108 domestic assault cases reported in
Otsego County. Gina Theriault, local Zonta
member and Community Corrections
Services Program/Case Manger comments
that “These are recorded numbers of abuse,
and there are many more instances that are
never reported. It is our goal to bring aware-
ness to the situation and work towards
reducing domestic violence within our com-
munity. If you are a victim of domestic abuse
or rape/sexual assault we encourage you to
call the Women’s Resource Center for help.
800-275-1995.” Jan Maninelli, Executive
Director of the Women’s Resource Center of
Northern Michigan commented that “In
addition to the numbers you already have,
the Women’s Center served 23 sexual assault
victims which would be among the numbers
not reported to the police and/or prosecu-
tor.”
Local Zonta members are collecting non-
perishable food items for the Safe Home of
the Women’s Resource Center of Northern
Michigan during the 16 Days Campaign. The
Safe Home serves women escaping abuse
from a five county area including Otsego
County. Staff from Gaylord’s office will drive
Otsego County residents to the Safe Home
located in Petoskey. Last year, the Safe Home
provided 119 domestic abuse survivors and
their children with 3,382 nights of refuge.
Families were provided with more than
10,100 meals, as well as all their daily needs.
Domestic abuse services for survivors are
provided at no cost. The Zonta Club of
Gaylord Area also sponsors an annual schol-
arship through the Women’s Resource Center
to help Otsgeo County Women returning to
school after escaping abuse.
Amber Theriault, President of the Zonta
Club of Gaylord Area comments that “it is
vital we not only support and advocate for
local women, but also for women through-
out our world. It is disturbing that one in
three girls will experience violence. By better
understanding the plight of victims on an
international level we can better understand
domestic developments. Look at human traf-
ficking. It is an international problem that
has become one of the fastest growing
crimes in the United States. Gangs have dis-
covered that it is easier to obtain ‘product’
and that they are less likely to be prosecuted
than when dealing drugs. Zonta
International has worked to inform mem-
bers through annual workshops and confer-
ences so that we can better serve our com-
munities. If you visit a rest-stop along I-96,
you’ll likely to see one of our Zonta
International District 15 posters translated in
three languages with the Michigan Human
Trafficking Hotline phone number. 1-888-
3737-888”
The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender
Violence is an international campaign origi-
nating from the first Women's Global
Leadership Institute sponsored by the Center
for Women's Global Leadership in 1991.
Zonta International’s nearly 1,200 clubs in 65
countries are participating in this effort in
their local communities in support of Zonta
Says NO, a campaign to raise awareness of
and increase actions to end violence against
women and girls around the world through
service and advocacy.
“We cannot and must not ignore the fact
that violence against women and girls is still
pervasive in all kinds of countries and soci-
eties, with one in three girls impacted during
their lifetime,” said Zonta International
President Lynn McKenzie. “It’s in our back-
yard. Zonta International has been commit-
ted to its prevention and eradication for
many years. In 2013, as the United Nations
Commission on the Status of Women focuses
on fighting violence against women, we sup-
port the initiative with ‘Zonta Says NO’.”
Since June 2012, the Zonta International
Foundation has raised more than $600,000
to fight violence against women. Zonta clubs
across the world have organized more than
40 events as part of Zonta Says NO, from
panel discussions on violence against
women and screenings of topical films, to
displaying Zonta Says NO banners and host-
ing charity auctions.
Zonta Says NO began in November 2012
and will continue through December 2013,
focusing on the service and advocacy actions
of Zonta clubs and districts to prevent and
end violence against women and girls in
their local communities. Zonta
International’s ongoing efforts to end vio-
lence against women and girls are carried
out through the Zonta International
Strategies to End Violence against Women
(ZISVAW) program and through Zonta’s part-
nerships with the United Nations and its
agencies.
To learn more about “Zonta Says NO” and
join the campaign, please visit
zontasaysno.com. For more information
about Zonta International and opportunities
to join this global organization of executives
and professionals working to advance the
status of women worldwide, please visit
www.zonta.org. The Zonta Club of Gaylord
Area meets 5:30pm the second Monday of
every month at the Otsego County Airport.
Interested individuals may contact club
president Amber Theriault at 989-731-1841
or info@GaylordZonta.org.
By Deb Hagen-Foley
Happy Thanksgiving! Like many
Americans, you may take this day as an
opportunity to remember the many wonder-
ful things in your life. I noticed a trend
among some of my Facebook friends to
express their thanks every day this month.
Each day, they have posted a status update
recognizing something for which they are
thankful. One day a year is nice, daily for a
month is better - what if every day we start-
ed to notice the abundance in our lives?
How might that change how we think and
feel, for not just a single day, but for every
day?
Each of us projects energy or vibrations,
through our thoughts and emotions.
According to The Secret, that energy is the
source of who we are, our sense of well
being, and what we attract in our lives. "Like
attracts like." If your thinking is negative,
you will attract negative events. If your
thinking is positive, if you anticipate that
positive things are going to happen for you,
your vibrations will be positive and you will
attract positive things.
So, how do we shift our thinking to create
what we want instead of dwelling on what
we don't want? One way to become more
positive in your thinking is to stop thinking
about what is lacking in your life is to recog-
nize all the wonderful things already in your
life. It is easy to fall into the habit of think-
ing that our lives would be better if we could
only get the right job or the right mate. By
thinking that way, we are focused on what
we don't have and that negativity is not
going to attract the job or the mate we want.
If, instead, we spend time reflecting on all
the things that make our
lives great, it helps to create
the environment to be open
to other great things.
One way to change our
thinking is to focus on grati-
tude. Each day, preferably in
the morning, think of five
things that are good about
your world and write those
down. These can take the
form of "I am grateful for. . .
" It can be whatever comes
to mind. For example, "I am
grateful for having a warm
house in a Michigan winter"
or "I am grateful for having
family that love me." They
can be big things or small
things.
As you practice writing
these, you will begin to
notice more and more things
for which to be grateful.
This will start your day in a positive direction
and that momentum will carry you into the
day. During the day, as negative thoughts
enter your mind, think of a gratitude to
reverse the thought. For example, you might
think, "I don't like how I look, I need to lose
weight." Turn that around to something you
do like about your appearance, such as, "I
have beautiful blue eyes."
According to the Law of Attraction, as you
start taking these positive actions, our ener-
gy or vibration will shift in a positive way
and you will attract more positive thoughts
and actions. Thoughts become things!
Think happy thoughts!

against gender based violence

The Great Start Collaborative of
Charlevoix, Emmet and northern Antrim
counties is inviting parents to join the 2014
Parent Leadership Council, comprised of
parents of children 12 and under, that help
strengthen families and support optimal
development of young children.
"The authentic voice of parents is vital to
community planning and growth," said
Maureen Hollocker, Director for the Great
Start Collaborative.
Parent Leadership Council members will
gain personal and professional development,
explained Raeann Dunlop, Parent Liaison
and leader of the 2013 council.
“They will build personal leadership skills,
increase understanding of family strengths
and the community, as well as have the
opportunity to network with parents, com-
munity leaders and other professionals - all
while serving as the voice of parents of
young children throughout the region,”
Dunlop said.
Members will participate in community
outreach by representing Great Start and
sharing materials with others as a parent
voice at community meetings. They will also
help plan and facilitate events and projects
hosted by Great Start, as well as share child
development materials and community
resources with other parents.
Parents within the Charlevoix-Emmet
Intermediate School District that are inter-
ested in becoming a part of the Parent
Leadership Council must have a child(ren)
aged infant to 12, commit five hours per
month from January 2014 through
December 2014, and attend the Great Start
Parent Leadership Council Orientation. To
eliminate barriers to participation, parents
will receive a monthly honorarium of $50
upon completion of hours and the monthly
Leadership Council reporting form, and
transportation assistance via fuel cards.
Application and additional information
can be found by visiting www.greatstart-
forkids.com. Application deadline is 5 p.m.
on December 20, 2013. Completed applica-
tion forms can be mailed to: Great Start
Collaborative, 08568 Mercer Boulevard,
Charlevoix, MI 49720; faxed to: 231-582-
8082; or e-mailed to: gspc@greatstart-
forkids.com
The Great Start Collaborative is currently
made up of more than 30 different partici-
pants and organizations from around the
community. Representatives from business,
health, education, human services, legislative,
higher education, non-profit, court systems,
and parents are committed to creating a
movement in our area that seeks to involve
the entire community in supporting families
as they raise their young children to succeed
in school and in life.
On Tuesday, November 12, Governor Rick
Snyder signed legislation that extends the cur-
rent homestead property tax exemption for
disabled military veterans to a veteran’s
spouse if the veteran passes away before the
tax break is granted. The existing property tax
exemption eases the cost of home ownership
for military veterans who were honorably dis-
charged and are disabled and unable to work.
This exemption is only available to 100%
Disabled Veterans or those Veterans with
Individual Unemployability or, if the veteran
has died, to their un-remarried surviving
spouse who owns and uses the
home as their homestead. The
disabled veteran or their surviv-
ing spouse must be a resident of
the State of Michigan. Assessors
are advised that eligible dis-
abled veterans will be able to
apply for a 2013 exemption at
the December 2013 Board of
Review. An exemption will can-
cel the July and December 2013
taxes, but will not cancel any
taxes levied before 2013.
The Act requires an Affidavit be filed. Call
the Cheboygan County Department of
Veterans Services 231-627-8833 to schedule an
appointment to review if eligible to obtain the
tax exemption. Veterans must present their
annual VA Benefits Statement and/or most
current Rating Decision stating 100% Disabled
or Individual Unemployability and Michigan
driver’s license in order to obtain the Affidavit.
The Affidavit must be given to the Veteran’s
Township Supervisor by December 6, in order
to receive the homestead property tax exemp-
tion for 2013.
GAYLORD - The Gaylord Elks Lodge is
hosting its annual Soup and Sandwich
Luncheon on Tuesday, December 3, from
11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Elks Lodge, 116
Grandview Blvd. in Gaylord. Cost for the
luncheon is by donation with all proceeds
going to The Salvation Army of Gaylord.
The event is open to all.
“We are grateful the Elks host the
luncheon and take an active role in help-
ing The Salvation Army do the most good
for people in Gaylord and Otsego County,”
said Brian Jergenson, Gaylord Business
Manager.
The Annual Soup and Sandwich
Luncheon contributes to the overall suc-
cess of The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle
Campaign, an event that kicked off last
weekend with the familiar bell ringers at
several Gaylord locations. The Salvation
Army is seeking volunteers to ring bells at
kettle locations at Walmart, Family Fare,
Big Lots and Hobby Lobby on Friday and
Saturday through the Christmas holiday
season.
Bell ringers are encouraged to show
their Christmas spirit by singing or play-
ing holiday music while staffing the ket-
tles. The Salvation Army invites local
sports boosters, service organizations and
churches to sponsor kettle locations for a
day-long ringing rally. Social media fans
can become an integral part of the
fundraising efforts by hosting an Online
Red Kettle and encouraging donations
from friends and family. For more infor-
mation go to www.onlineredkettle.org.
All funds raised locally in the Red Kettle
Campaign go directly to support the pro-
grams and services the Salvation Army
provides in Otsego County. To sign up,
contact the Gaylord Service Center at 989-
731-5959 or via email at brian_jergen-

As the outdoor temperatures in
northern Lower Michigan slip well
below freezing, home heating systems
are hard at work keeping families
warm and cozy indoors. Making sure
those heating systems are operating
efficiently, and safely, is a top priority
for keeping the cold outside, and the
family protected inside.
With experience in the heating and
cooling industry since 1979, Kevin
Westcott, who established Family
Plumbing & Heating in Gaylord back
in 1995, knows the importance of
keeping heating equipment running
at peak performance. His company’s
longstanding tradition of expertise
and excellence in customer service
has established a loyal customer base
throughout northern Michigan, and
his factory-trained team of techni-
cians is at the ready to perform a
home heating system tune-up for just
$89.
“Service is our niche,” affirms Kevin
Westcott, “and at this time of the year,
making sure our customer’s heating
system is operating safely and effi-
ciently, as well as evaluating any
potential for impending breakdowns
is our top priority. Most people don’t
realize how inexpensive a home heat-
ing system tune-up from Family
Plumbing & Heating is, and how it can
help save money on their utilities bills,
keep their furnace running safely, and
help to avoid system breakdowns in
the middle of the night.”
In addition to maintenance proce-
dures such as testing system igniters,
flame sensors, fan motor lubrication
and checking belts and filters,
Westcott notes that a heating system
tune-up will also involve several safety
checks points.
“Problems such as plugged chim-
neys or defective heat exchangers will
cause deadly CO2 gas to leak into the
home,” relates Westcott. “While hav-
ing a yearly system tune up will save
the homeowner money on their utility
bills and increase the life of the heat-
ing system, the most important reason
to have a system checked regularly is
to minimize the risk of CO2 poisoning
inside the home.”
And if you act soon you will have a
chance to win a $2,000 Vacation Get-
Away! Simply have Family Plumbing
& Heating perform a furnace tune-up
for you and you will be entered in a
drawing for a $2,000 Vacation
Certificate that can be utilized toward
a vacation get-away destination of
your choice. Don’t delay; the $2,000
Vacation Get-Away drawing will take
place on December 20th, 2013.
For those with aging heating and
cooling system equipment, this is also
a great time to consider upgrading
that equipment with new, more ener-
gy-efficient models. “If someone is
looking at replacing an existing fur-
nace or air conditioning system,”
Westcott states, “we will run the num-
bers for them and see how the utility
savings will pay back over time.”
Family Plumbing & Heating is locat-
ed at 519 W. Second Street in Gaylord,

Choosing a locally owned store gen-
erates almost four times as much eco-
nomic benefit for the surrounding
region as shopping at a chain, a new
study has concluded. The analysis also
found that eating at a local restaurant
produces more than twice the local
economic impact of dining at a chain
restaurant.
The research firm Civic Economics
analyzed data from fifteen independent
retailers and seven independent restau-
rants, all located in Salt Lake City, and
compared their impact on the local
economy with four chain retail stores
(Barnes & Noble, Home Depot, Office
Max, and Target) and three national
restaurant chains (Darden, McDonald’s,
and P.F. Chang’s).
The study found that the local retail-
ers return an average of 52 percent of
their revenue to the local economy,
compared with just 14 percent for the
chain retailers. Similarly, the local
restaurants re-circulate an average of
79 percent of their revenue locally,
compared to 30 percent for the chain
eateries.
What accounts for the difference?
Independent businesses spend much
more on local labor. They also procure
more goods for resale locally and rely
much more heavily on local providers
for services like accounting and print-
ing. This means that much of the
money a customer spends at a local
store or restaurant is re-spent within
the local economy, supporting other
businesses and jobs.

Gluten free is really a buzzword these
days. You can't go a day without hearing
someone talking about it, seeing an ad about
it, or walking by a gluten free section in the
grocery store. Just a decade ago most of us
hadn't even given gluten a second thought.
If you are actually new to the term, gluten is
a product from grains, like wheat, that is
used in many processed food items to make
it “stick.” Most popular items with gluten
include breads and pastas.
It may be surprising to some that there is a
company in northern Michigan producing
gluten free foods. Mrs. Glee's Foods is locat-
ed in Hillman, MI. They run a facility that is
dedicated and certified gluten Free, by the
Gluten Free Certification Organization. This
means that they don't make non-gluten free
items in the same place as their gluten free,
so there is no fear of cross contamination.
They are also Kosher certified by Michigan
Kosher.
Jim LeCureux, Operations and Sales
Manager, tells about how Mrs. Glee's began
creating gluten free goodness using beans; “A
group of navy bean producers were looking
for alternative markets for their crop and
connections were made with the University
of Nebraska Food Science staff. They in-turn
recommended that we meet with the Celiac
Sprue Association. At that time gluten free
foods were low in fiber and protein and very
high in carbohydrates. Beans are good
sources of protein and fiber so it appeared
that beans/bean flour would be a great alter-
native flour for those that are intolerant to
wheat/gluten.”
Currently Mrs. Glee's has bean flour, a
multi-purpose flour and many pastas. They
also have some wonderful cake, bread, cook-
ie, and more mixes available. LeCureux says,
“We are always looking for new ideas and
products that consumers would like.
Currently we are increasing our co-packing
capabilities. Since gluten free requires a
facility where there will not be cross contam-
ination, Mrs Glee's is adding several clients
that MGF will source, process and package
for others.”
Mrs. Glee's generally has two types of cus-
tomer, according to LeCureux. There are
those that are truly gluten intolerant and
those that think the gluten free life style is
healthier, or that it makes them feel better.
He adds that, the number of people with
gluten intolerance “is growing as people
become more aware of the issue.”
Mrs. Glee's is available locally at Neiman's
in Alpena, Amish Country Natural Products
and AuSable Market in Mio, and Moore's
Bulk Foods in Grayling. You can learn more
about Mrs. Glee's foods at their website,
www.mrsgleesfoods.com, or by phone, (989)
742-4446 .

Christmas is a time of giving. It is better to
give then to receive, after all. If you aren't
sure where to give, or what to give, here is a
list of places in need of donations this holi-
day season.
St. Mary's Catholic Church in Mio
St. Mary's has several opportunities to
share Christmas with local people in need.
The Giving Tree has tags with a number that
represents a person or family, and a gift
they've asked for. Monetary donations help
to purchase the gifts on any tags not taken.
The deadline for The Giving Tree is
December 8. Gifts for Veterans in the
Saginaw VA Hospital are being collected until
November 30, at the church. It can be any
small items that someone could read or use
while in the hospital. A "Home Needs" bag is
available until December 1 for people to take
home and fill with home cleaning and paper
products. There is also the Disaster Relief
collection that folks can give to at any time.
It will be sent to Catholic Relief Services to
help in the Philippines. The food pantry can
always use canned or boxed food donations
that will help for Christmas, and all year
long. For more information on any of these
donation options, contact Julie Slasinski,
826-3404 or Cathy Kuba, 826-1673.
Fairview Mennonite Church
The Fairview Mennonite Church, along
with a number of other churches and organi-
zations in the county, participate in the
Community Giving program through DHS.
Contact Oscoda County DHS for more info.
Something new the church is doing this year
is to have a Christmas Open House for the
families they were given through the
Community Giving program. They are going
to buy a variety of gifts, including ones they
requested, so they can choose and wrap
their own gifts for their kids and the kids can
choose for the parents. They
will also be decorating
Christmas cookies, enjoying
refreshments, and more.
Though the church doesn't
normally ask for outside
donations, if anyone would like to give
towards buying food, gifts and things, that
would be welcome! The contact phone is
848-2953 and mailing address is PO Box 100,
Fairview 48621.
Love INC in Fairview
Love In the Name of Christ of Oscoda Co.
is always in need of monetary or other dona-
tions (call to find out what they are in need
of currently). These donations would be
used to help people in need of firewood,
winter clothing, food, and other things. Call
848-2020 to find out how you can help.
Mio Church of God
Every year a list of families that need help
with Christmas comes to the church. Let's
give JOY in the name of Jesus to someone we
may not even know! If you would like to
adopt a family, shop or deliver gifts; please
call the church 989-848-5247. You can also
join them for wrapping in the Fellowship
Hall on Tuesday, December 17 at 6pm. They
also have Operation Christmas Child, where
they send boxes of gifts that may include
toys, personal care items, pencils, and more
to those in the community that have chil-
dren that do not have the funds for gifts, or a
holiday meal. If you would like more details
on about Operation Christmas Child please
call the church and speak to Shelly.
We Can Food Pantry
We Can Food Pantry, located at the Oscoda
County Fairgrounds, is always in need of
donation for their monthly giveaways.
However, the holidays seem like an extra
special time to make a donation, if you can.
Since they only get a very small donation
from government grants, they rely greatly on
donations and fundraising events. The
pantry accepts both monetary and food
donations in order to help the hungry in
Oscoda County. They welcome prepackaged
meat items, boxed cereal, canned goods, and
other shelf stable items. Monetary donations
are used to buy bulk food through the Food
Bank of Eastern Michigan. Those who
receive food from the pantry have either
received assistance through the state’s Bridge
Card program, or they need to prove they are
below the poverty level, with proof of resi-
dence and income. Donations can be
arranged through Sarah Ridpath, 989-848-
5293.
University Center Gaylord (UCG) has recently added
another regional resource to its list of accomplishments by
becoming a Professional Testing Center.
UCG staff have attended training and become official
proctors for exams by companies that include Pearson VUE,
ISO Quality, Kryterion, Comira, TD testing, Nocti, Castle, and
Smart Proctoring. Other testing companies will be added to
the list so that individuals have the widest possible options
for completing required computer-based and paper testing,
without having to drive to major urban areas where such
exams were usually only available.
UCG is a partnership of eight colleges and is also an ideal
regional meeting place for organizations and businesses with
its modern classroom space and advanced technology.
Community education classes are also offered for life-long
learners.
By becoming a Professional Testing Center, University
Center Gaylord is the most convenient geographic location
for people throughout the region, saving them automobile
fuel and hours of travel time.
For more information, call 989-705-3700.

By Jamie Woodall
Have you ever wondered why we humans
complain so much? It seems to be our natu-
ral propensity. We are creatures of comfort
and want things a certain orderly way in our
lives, don’t we? The weather is too hot, or
too cold. No snow or too much snow. Some
days the weather is just right. But even on
those days there are usually fifty to a hun-
dred things
we can find
that aren’t
right allow-
ing it to sab-
otage our
spirit. Let’s
face a brutal
fact; most
often we
don’t walk
through life
with a 100% thankful spirit.
It’s appears to be against our nature to
turn to God and give thanks for everything in
life. But that’s what he desires. And that’s
what is best for our lives. It alleviates stress,
and makes us people that others enjoy to be
around. ‘Positivity’ is good, powerful, and
infectious. Every year Thanksgiving helps
me evaluate my general life attitude.
Did you know that Thanksgiving is actually
about giving thanks? Check out the words of
an ancient Psalmist: Enter his gates with
thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give
thanks to him and praise his name. For the
Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all gener-
ations (Psalm 100).
Now, reread it more slowly. This always
helps in digesting Scripture. For these peo-
ple in this ancient time there were gates of a
temple court where they would go to praise
and worship God for all he had provided for
them. Why? Because he is
good and his love endures
forever. He is faithful and
walks with us through all the
mess if we allow him to do
this.
As I consider this more
carefully, the words of the
biblical writer James come to
mind, Every good and per-
fect gift is from above, coming down from
the Father of the heavenly lights.
I remember thinking about this little
nugget a few years ago while I stood in the
streets of Sao Paulo Brazil. We had just visit-
ed whole families living in one-room cement
box houses and shanties. Trash littered
sewer water ran under the sidewalks. In the
100-degree sun it smelled like dog poop.
Small children were everywhere barefoot
and shirtless. Sexual disease was rampant.
Normal was completely broken. Run-away
dad’s hung out smoking dope on street cor-
ners. It was hard. Yet as I walked into a
small “garage church” those people were
singing praises to God louder and more filled
with charisma than any church I could think
of in the US.
I came home from Brazil ashamed to go
back to our four-bedroom carpeted home
with air conditioning. If you’ve been to a
third-world place then you know the feeling.
I have so much more than I ever need. A
new level of gratefulness welled up in my
heart. I wanted to give more, and care more.
I forgot about what I once thought I didn’t
have. I wrestled with my kids and remem-
bered… “Every good and perfect gift is from
above, coming down from the Father of the
heavenly lights.”
This Thanksgiving season I want to
encourage you to focus your mind on the act
of giving thanks to God for everything. God,
thank you for my health. Thank you for my
family. Thank you for a home with running
water. Thank you for being faithful even
when I’m not. Thank you for your mercy.
Thank you for your love. Thank you for giv-
ing me purpose in life. Thank you for the
sun. Thank you for the rain. Thank you for
the snow. Thank you for difficult times that
can build my character. Thank you for
friends. Thank you for life. Thank you for
freedom. Thank you for being a God who
desires to meet me in my deepest pain when
I don’t understand. Thank you for being not
just a God who is out there, but one who is
near me. Thank you for your son Jesus.
Thank you, God. Thank you. Thank you.
No matter what challenges you face, being
sincerely thankful will change your life. God
is good. He hurts with you, and desires a dif-
ferent world as well. We can trust him, and
give thanks.
Have a grateful Thanksgiving.

Christmas in Indian River this Friday
Complain or Give Thanks?
Thanksgiving is almost here. If you
have the financial resources to provide a
comfortable life for your family, you
have reason to be thankful. And if you
can afford to share some of your “boun-
ty” with charitable organizations, you
may want to be as generous as possible
— because your gifts may allow you to
both give and receive.
By donating cash or other financial
assets, such as stocks, to a qualified
charity (either a religious group or a
group that has received 501(c)(3) status
from the IRS), you help benefit an
organization whose work you believe in
— and, at the same time, you can
receive valuable tax benefits.
To illustrate: If you give $100 to a qual-
ified charity, and you’re in the 25% tax
bracket, you can deduct $100, with a tax
benefit of $25, when you file your 2013
taxes. Therefore, the real “cost” of your
donation is just $75 ($100 minus the $25
tax savings).
Furthermore, if you donate certain
types of non-cash assets, you may be
able to receive additional tax benefits.
Suppose you give $1,000 worth of stock
to a charitable group. If you’re in the
25% bracket, you’ll be able to deduct
$250 when you file your taxes. And by
donating the stock, you can avoid pay-
ing the capital gains taxes that would be
due if you had eventually sold the stock
yourself.
To claim a charitable deduction, you
have to be able to itemize deductions on
your taxes. Charitable gifting can get
more complex if you choose to integrate
your charitable giving with your estate
plans to help you reduce your taxable
estate. The estate tax is consistently
debated in
Congress, and the
exemption level
has fluctuated in
recent years, so it’s
not easy to predict
if you could even-
tually subject your
heirs to these
t a x e s .
Nonetheless, you
can still work with
your tax and legal
advisors now to
take steps to
reduce any possi-
ble estate tax bur-
den in the years
ahead.
One such step
might involve
establishing a
charitable remain-
der trust. Under
this arrangement,
you’d place some
assets, such as
appreciated stocks
or real estate, in a
trust, which could
then use these assets to pay you a life-
time income stream. When you estab-
lish the trust, you may be able to receive
a tax deduction based on the charitable
group’s “remainder interest” — the
amount the charity is likely to ultimate-
ly receive. (This figure is determined by
an IRS formula.) Upon your death, the
trust would relinquish the remaining
assets to the charitable organization
you’ve named. Keep in mind, though,
that this type of trust can be complex. To
establish one, you’ll need to work with
your tax and legal advisors.
Of course, you can also choose to pro-
vide your loved ones with monetary
gifts while you’re still alive. You can give
up to $14,000 per year, per individual, to
as many people as you choose without
incurring the gift tax. For example, if you
have three children, you could give
them a cumulative $42,000 in a single
year — and so could your spouse.
Thanksgiving is a fine time to show
your generosity. And, as we’ve seen,
being generous can be rewarding — for
your recipients and yourself.

T H I S PA G E S P O N S O R E D B Y T H E F O L L O WI N G A R E A B U S I N E S S E S
By Curt Hagedorn
The word “spa” is bandied about a lot
these days. There are “spa” personal care
products and “spa” towels and “spa” robes
and entire “spa” bathrooms: bathrooms
filled with those luxurious products and
fluffy white cotton towels and robes. And
don’t forget “spa” cuisine which even
extends to “spa” frozen dinners. But if you
really want to get to the bottom of the
resurgence of spas and spa treatments,
just look at our over-scheduled and
stressed out lives. We all need a little more
pampering on a daily (or at least weekly or
monthly) basis.
The idea of a spa harks back to the turn
of the last century, when the very wealthy
traveled to places like Baden Baden and
Nauheim in Germany to indulge in the
supposed healing properties of the natural
springs there. Over time, the meaning of
the word spa has expanded to include all
manner of pampering mixed with healing:
mental, physical and spiritual. And of
course, when it comes to the very wealthy,
nothing has changed very much.
For example, one of the oldest spas in
the United States, the Golden Door, offers
guests a chance to “fulfill your dream of a
perfect week in paradise” with programs
designed to ‘rejuvenate mind, body and
spirit.’ This kind of experience naturally
does not come cheap, requiring a non-
refundable deposit of $1,000 per person,
to which you’ll add an additional $6,500
per week for a personalized fitness and
treatment program, spectacular accom-
modations, gourmet meals created from
the bounty of the Golden Door’s own gar-
dens, and a great deal more. In the world
of spas, however, the Golden Door is hard-
ly the most expensive. Resorts around the
world have jumped on the spa bandwagon
and offer a wide variety not only of exer-
cise, classes and meal plans, but programs
designed to reduce stress, improve your
emotional and spiritual health, raise your
self esteem and, in general, prepare you to
be the ultimate warrior in your chose field
of endeavor when you go back to the out-
side world. But just
because you don’t live a
“rich and famous” lifestyle,
doesn’t mean you don’t
deserve that little some-
thing extra that rejuvenat-
ing spa treatments can pro-
vide.
If you’re looking for
something a little more
close to home (and a lot
less pricey) there also “day
spas” cropping up all over
the country, many times
connected with either
gyms or beauty salons or as
freestanding franchises, so
it’s more than likely that
you’ll be able to find the
genuine healing properties
of a spa treatment just around the corner.
And spa treatments don’t have to be
expensive. On a recent walk around my
own neighborhood with a stressed-out
friend, a local day spa was offering a spe-
cial half-hour massage, pedicure manicure
for only $30.
A word to the wise: do a little research
on spa treatments to find out what they
entail and what kinds of products they
use. Though there should be very little
risk, it’s possible that, since many spas use
all natural ingredients (even vegetables
and fruits) to create their proprietary
products, you might be allergic. Like in a
restaurant, it’s always best to ask. Also,
massage and other physical therapists and
teachers often have licensing and other
requirements they must pass. Look for
these before you put your body in their
hands. In general: if you are paying for
classes or treatments it’s a good idea to
have a resume and references up front
which, fortunately, most spas however
large or small provide. Remember, if the
services and treatments are as effective as
they say, there should be plenty of people
willing to sing their praises. Also, ask your
friends, colleagues, and of course your
hairdresser or other beauty professional
for recommendations. Your local hair
salon may be offering a variety of services
from manicures and pedicures to mas-
sage, facials and body wraps that you
never even knew about.
Finally, even if you can’t indulge in a
week of spa treatments, a simple half hour
chair massage, a facial or other treatment
can often provide just what you need to
relieve the stress and anxiety of your
everyday life, and in most cases you can
purchase the healing products to take
home, and your local spa practitioner
often offers classes or other advice on how
best to use them between visits as part of
a stress-relieving program of yoga, medita-
tion or other exercise that emphasizes
stretching and breathing. Most of us
never take the time to really relax and be
pampered. With more spas and spa treat-
ments available than ever before, it’s time
we started.
