Otsego Countys Recycling program is get-
ting ready to take a giant leap forward. After
voters in the county approved a millage pro-
posal on last Novembers general election
ballot to provide funding for the establish-
ment and maintenance of drop-off stations,
the Otsego County Recycling Committee and
the County have been hard at work securing
locations for those stations. Those sites are
in the process of getting set up; and Otsego
County Administrator John Burt hopes they
will be on-line as early as next month.
We are waiting for the snow to melt so we
can take care of the site preparation, he

It may very well be one of the tastiest
fundraisers of the year. Next weekend, April
12th and 13th, prepare those appetites for a
feast because that is the date for the 2013
Chefs Challenge event, a fundraiser for the
non-profit Challenge Mountain of Walloon
Hills, Inc. Taking place at Boyne Mountain
Resort in Boyne Falls, the annual Chefs
Challenge event has been heralded as
Michigans premier epicurean gathering,
focusing on Michigan made dishes prepared
by area chefs and culinary students, plus a
tantalizing assortment of local wines and
beverages from microbreweries. What a deli-
cious way to sample some of the finest foods
and drinks our wonderful state has to offer.
The 6th Annual Chefs Challenge weekend
kicks off on Friday, April 12th, with the
Future Chefs competition starting at 6 pm
in the Vienna Room of the Grand Lodge.
High school student teams will prepare
appetizers and pastries that will be evaluated
by panel of celebrity judges and a Peoples
Choice award will voted on by attendees.
Event attendees will also have a wonderful
opportunity to enjoy fantastic food, friends,
and mingle with the celebrity chefs and
panel of judges.
Saturday, April 13th will begin with a series
of food seminars and demonstrations at the
Boyne Mountain Civic Center from 9 am
until noon, and this event is free for the pub-
lic to attend. The Taste of Michigan chef
competitions at the Civic Center will take
place from 11 am to 4 pm, and will feature
three competitive categories: College and
University; Professional Center-of-the-Plate;
and Michigan Desserts. Teams will prepare a
entre paired with a Michigan wine and

Choice Award" and a select panel of judges
who determine the "Chop Challenge" com-
petitors.

four teams selected by the judges from the
Taste of Michigan competition, and it will
take place from 2:30 to 4 pm. This competi-
tion will feature three rounds; Appetizer,

petitor eliminated in each round. The top
team will walk away with the highly coveted
Taste of Michigan award. Be sure to save
some room, as the Dessert Challenge will
take place from 4:30 to 6 pm.
The 6th annual Chefs Challenge event is
designed to raise both funds and awareness
for Challenge Mountain a non-profit
501(c)(3) organization providing adaptive
outdoor recreational opportunities, free of
charge, to people with special needs and
their families. For more than 25 years,
Challenge Mountain has been dedicated to
providing a venue for sports, outdoor recre-
ation, and leisure skills to those with physi-
cal disabilities or mental challenges.

Michigan food and drink products and their
creative applications in a meal. It is an excel-
lent opportunity for Michigan establish-
ments to showcase their talents and gain
valuable exposure while raising funds for
Challenge Mountain.

WEATHER:
The next time you are with a group of people,
there is a good chance someone in that group is
the survivor of sexual assault. An exhaustive gov-
ernment survey found that nearly one in five
women surveyed said they had been raped or had
experienced an attempted rape at some point in
their lives. Every two minutes, someone in the
U.S. is sexually assaulted with 44% of victims
under the age of 18.
These numbers do not tell the full story. Sexual
assault remains one of the most under reported
crimes, with 54% still being left unreported, as
stated in a recent National Crime Victimization
Survey. Under reporting of sexual assault typically
results because:
Survivors feel they will not be believed
Survivors have feelings of shame or embarrass-
ment
The perpetrator is well known or in a position
of power/authority over the survivor or in the
community
The victim is threatened or manipulated into
silence by the perpetrator
Sexual assault is defined as any unwanted sexu-
al act or contact that is attempted or completed
by force, threat of force or coercion. In Michigan,
the legal term for this type of crime is Criminal
Sexual Conduct. Sexual assault and abuse may
also include verbal, visual or anything that forces
a person to join in unwanted sexual contact or
attention such as exhibitionism and sexual
harassment.
Because of continuing misconceptions, it is
important to stress a few basic facts about sexual
assault:
It is a crime of violence and control, not an act
of passion.
Women and girls of all ages, races, socio-eco-
nomic groups, neighborhoods and lifestyles can
become victims, as well as men and boys.
It is often committed in the victims own home
by someone the victim knows or a person in a
position of power or trust a relative, friend,
neighbor or other acquaintance.
You may wonder what you can do to help pre-
vent sexual assault. The National Sexual Violence
Resource Center suggests parents start talking to
their children about healthy sexual development
early on. Some suggestions might be:
Young children:
Teach body parts using the correct name for
each. This builds knowledge, empowerment and
helps avoid shameful feelings about ones body.
Perpetrators will often use shame as a means to
silence victims.
Teach appropriate personal boundaries and
the difference between wanted/unwanted touch.
This builds understanding of privacy, how to
interact appropriately with peers/others, and that
their body belongs to them and they can say no to
unwanted touch.
Preteens:
Talk about physical changes during puberty
and provide age-appropriate information on
reproduction and sexuality. This will let them
know these issues are topics that can be discussed
openly, without shame.
Encourage critical thinking and build the skills
to differentiate fact from fiction in media images
and representations of sexuality that young peo-
ple are exposed to 24/7. Messages from advertis-
ing, films, television and video games provide a
distorted view of normal, healthy relationships
and sexuality and help create an environment for
widespread and increasing violence against
women and children.
In addition to holding sexual assault offenders
legally responsible for their behavior and actions,
we must also do a better job of listening to and
supporting survivors without blame.
If you, or someone you know is the victim of
sexual violence, contact the Womens Resource
Center of Northern Michigans 24-hour crisis and
information line at (231) 347-0082 or for long dis-
tance callers (800) 275-1995.
Sexual assault is a difficult issue to discuss, yet if
we choose to be silent we help enable its exis-
tence.
April is National Sexual
Assault Awareness
Month
Connecting Women in Business (CWIB), a group of the
Petoskey Regional Chamber of Commerce has launched its
2013 summer GO Grants for Girls. The next round of awards
will support participation of young women in activities tak-
ing place between June 1 and September 30, 2013. The appli-
cation deadline is April 15th.
GO Grants, or Girls Outreach Grants, reach out to young
girls in our area who have an idea and passion to try some-
thing new. Grants range from $100 to $500, and can be used
as resources in any field of endeavor. Thus far, the program
has awarded 46 grants totaling $20,875 since 2010.
Grants have provided a range of opportunities to the
recipients including: attending the National Youth
Leadership Forum on Medicine, robotics camp at Lawrence
Technological University, voice, dance and watercolor les-
sons, even purchasing and raising a pig for 4H, according to
Lisa Hoyt, Petoskey Chamber of Commerce Membership
Director. The programs goals are to improve the self esteem
and skills of young women."
The purpose of the grants is to provide small grants to girls
in grades six to ten in the Char-Em ISD service area of
Charlevoix, Emmet and northern Antrim counties. The
grants will allow the applicant to pursue a special interest
gain or improve a skill, participate in an outdoor experience
and more. CWIB encourages applications that will be chal-
lenging to the applicant.
Applicants work with a mentor to complete the applica-
tion. In the process they learn about submitting a grant
application while working with a teacher, relative or other
adult who work with the girl to help her achieve her dream.
The mentor also works with each girl to submit her final
report on her completed activity and what it meant to her.
The ideal applicants are girls who have not received
awards for outstanding achievements. CWIB is seeking girls
who do not ordinarily apply for awards, but instead under-
represented girls who need more support to realize their
potential. Girls need to clearly state their financial need, as
well as describe a special interest that will spark their imagi-
nation, creativity, or follow a dream that they may not imag-
ine possible.
The application is available at the Petoskey Chamber of
Commerce website or at the 401 E. Mitchell Street office.
Individuals wishing to donate to the GO GRANTS program
can send their donation to the Petoskey Chamber office at:
Include GO GRANTS in the memo line. For additional infor-
mation, please contact Lisa Hoyt, Membership Director, at
231-347-4150.

Recycling Continued...
relates. Some of the sites require more
work than others, so they will each be
brought online as soon as each is ready.
That work includes items such as removing
top soil and putting gravel down, and fenc-
ing the sites. We have a contractors lined
up for the work that needs to be done, and
will get each site open as soon as possible,
and expect all the sites will be ready by
sometime in May.
Locations for the recycling drop-off bins
are strategically situated in five areas,
designed to encourage residents to utilize
the new facilities within convenient reach
of each sector of the county. Those loca-
tions are;
1. Otsego Recycling West: 71 Hayes Tower
Road just south of Hayes Township Hall
2. Otsego Recycling North: 621 Garfield
Street, northeast of the Village Hall in
Vanderbilt.
3. Otsego Recycling Central: 931 S.
Otsego Avenue, near the Gaylord Discovery
Center.
4. Otsego Recycling South: 247 Old State
Road across from the Otsego Lake
Township Cemetery.
5. Otsego Recycling East: Northwest cor-
ner of M-32 East and Rock Road, which is
also the Charlton/Chester/Dover Township
Transfer Station location.
The sites will be open 24-hours a day,
seven days a week, and overseen by the
Otsego County Conservation District.
Emmet County Recycling was the success-
ful bidder to handle the recycle material
processing and hauling. Emmet County
has dual-stream recycling with papers,
boxes and bags in one recycling bin and
glass, plastic and metal containers in the
other bin.
The only thing in the way now is some
lingering snow from a winter that doesnt
seem to realize that it is time to head back
to the North Pole.
John Burt agrees, Its great we had lots of
snow this winter. If we were implementing
these sites last spring we would be much
farther along by now. But after working on
Otsego Countys recycling program for four
years, waiting another month to get these
drop-off stations going isnt too bad.
A wide variety of materials will be
accepted at these recycling drop-off sta-
tions. For a complete list of materials that
are and are not accepted, or a bit of recy-
cling etiquette, please visit
www.OtsegoRecycling.org.

Hunter Education
Continued...
The class, which is taught by 10 certified
instructors, is a hands-on learning experi-
ence that will cover all the requirements for
obtaining a hunting license for firearms.
That includes an expertly supervised live
fire for shotgun, .22 rifle, black powder and
bow. Tree Stand Demos and instruction in
Orienteering in the great outdoors will also
be covered during the sessions.
Parent signature is required for partici-
pants under the age of 18, and a parent
must be present during the entire class if
the participant is age 9 or under.
Registration for the class is mandatory,
and will take place at the Northland
Sportsmens Club on Friday, April 12th,
from 6 to 8 pm. The class is free, though
donations may be made to the Northland
Sportsmens Club.
To pre-register for the class, and for addi-
tional information, contact Jim or Judi at
(989) 732-9164.
Committee (YLDC), states, We have about 20 kids in the
program, though only those ages 12 and older will be at the
Pizza Hut Fundraiser, so we will have about 14 participating
on Tuesday. They all work very hard to raise money for edu-
cational materials for completing their projects that will be
submitted to judges for grading at our Achievement Day on
April 27th at the Armory in Cheboygan.
Once those projects are graded, the kids are on their way
to displaying at the annual Cheboygan Fair this summer,
where in addition to presentations by all the 4-H clubs, 4-H
Youth Livestock program participants display their animal
projects for show or for auction.
Leigh Ann Theunick, 4-H program coordinator for
Cheboygan County, states, These are the two primary
events each year on the 4-H Youth Livestock program calen-
dar. Achievement Days, which is open to the public, is like a
practice run for the youth in getting used to having someone
evaluate their work. At that event, they are graded more on
presentation than on content. The Cheboygan Fair is much
more detail about what the youth accomplished with their
projects.
Theunick adds that Cheboygan County 4-H has several
projects going on at any given time. At the Cheboygan Fair,
4-H participants display livestock, horses and a variety of
animals, as well as fruits and vegetables, and a diverse
assortment of artwork.
While 4-H animal presentations are the traditional
ones that many people know about, she relates. We
also have arts and crafts type clubs, a Sew On and So On
club (just about everything except animals), a home-
school club that does robotics; other science oriented
projects, as well as arts. We also have an afterschool
club; the Lean Green Wolverines, and they received a
grant last year for a greenhouse that we plan to finish this
spring.
Above all, she points out that all 4-H programs are
about learning life skills.
For example; for livestock projects they keep a journal
and learn budgeting skills. The participating youth must
go out and find a sponsor and a buyer. That helps them
learn business and marketing skills.
Both Theunick and Williams strongly encourage area
residents to stop by Pizza Hut, located at 1102 S. Main
Street in Cheboygan, (in front of Walmart), for a dinner
the whole family will enjoy while helping to support the
Cheboygan 4-H Livestock Youth in their fundraising
efforts.
Theunick relates, Our livestock committee is just getting
up and going again this year, so this is a great opportunity to
raise some funds. We are so grateful that Pizza Hut is allow-
ing us to hold this fundraising event.
For information about Cheboygan 4-H, visit Cheboygan
County MSU Extension on facebook or call (231) 627-8815.
The Otsego Conservation District, Louis M. Groen Nature
Preserve, Alpine Master Gardener Association, and the Seed
to Harvest 4-H Junior Master Gardener (JMG) Club will be
busy planning and installing a native plant demonstration in
the coming months. This is all thanks to funds from the
Lorrie Otto Seeds for Education Grant Program administered
by Wild Ones: Native Plants, NaturaLandscapes.
The native plant demonstration will be installed at the
Louis M. Groen Nature Preserve in Johannesburg. The plan-
ning, construction, and planting of the native plant demon-
stration will be undertaken by children and volunteers
involved in the Seed to
Harvest 4-H JMG Club. The
project will serve as a learn-
ing experience for the chil-
dren while also functioning
as an educational tool for the
community and visitors to
the preserve. Signs will be
installed that explain the
importance of native plants
in the landscape for wildlife,
erosion control, and water
filtration, while also helping
individuals learn about the
specific native plants used in
the planting.
Seeds for Education grants
include technical assistance
and advice from local
experts. The grants honor
Lorrie Otto who originated
the modern era of school
garden projects in the 1970s
in the Milwaukee area. The
Otsego Conservation
District, a local government-
agency with a mission to
assist the people of Otsego
County in the wise use and
management of their natural
resources for a healthy environment and sustained econom-
ic growth, will partner with Wild Ones to supply native plants
for the demonstration through their native plant nursery.
Wild Ones is a non-profit educational association dedicat-
ed to encouraging the use of native landscaping for its inher-
ent beauty and for the benefit of the environment. For more
information see their website at www.wildones.org.
For more information about the project or to get involved,
contact Justin Burchett by calling (989) 732-4021 or emailing
jburchett@otsegocountymi.gov.

In 1984, the Challenge Mountain 501 (c)
(3) non-profit organization was founded to
raise funds to develop an adaptive ski pro-
gram to allow physically and mentally chal-
lenged individuals enjoy the thrill and
excitement of the sport of downhill skiing
free of charge. With a motto of If I can do
this I can do anything! the Challenge
Mountain organization grew over the years
to include Summer Games, Day Camps,
Overnight Camps, Camp Quality, Winter
Games and much more.
Challenge Mountain Resale Shops, located
in Boyne City and Petoskey, offer a wide
range of donated clothing and household
items for sale with proceeds utilized to help
support Challenge Mountains ongoing mis-
sion. The 6,600 square foot facility in Boyne
City and 4,200 square foot facility in
Petoskey each present a seemingly endless
array of mens, womens and childrens cloth-
ing items, books, music, furniture, linens,
glassware and other household items to
select from.
The Boyne City store is located at 1158 S.
M-75, just east of Boyne City toward Boyne
Falls (where the facility was actually once
located), and the Petoskey store is at 2429 US
31 North across from Houghton Gas.
Each store is open Monday through Friday
from 10 am until 4 pm, and on Saturdays
from 10 am until 3 pm. For additional infor-
mation about Challenge Mountain, please
call (231) 582-5711 or visit www.cmski.org.

Dear Editor,
The Womens Resource Center of Northern Michigan is
grateful for the wonderful show of support during our
annual FUNdraiser held at cava Bar & Grill in Bay Harbor.
The event is instrumental in raising funds which help
ensure the continuation of programs and services for
women, children and families in our 5-county service area.
We thank the staff at cava for the beautiful venue and
delicious hors doeuvres. We are grateful to the many busi-
nesses and individuals who so graciously donated items to
the silent and live auctions. We also thank our hard-work-
ing board members for promoting and attending the event
and for helping secure so many great auction items. We
appreciate the time and effort of many staff and volunteers
who helped in numerous ways from those who checked in
guests to our awesome auctioneer, Jason Guthrie. Finally,
we thank those who attended the event, bid on auction
items and shared a festive Wednesday evening with us!
We appreciate the ongoing support of our community
and your confidence in the work we do every day.
Sincerely,
Deb Smith

People often tell us we are the friendliest
and the most honest coin and scrap gold
dealer in the north, states Roger Martin,
who along with his wife Dianna, own Alpine
Gold & Silver Exchange, located on M-32
West (next to Mancinos) in Gaylord. And
while Roger has been in this line of business
for over ten years, including once having a
store in nearby Grayling, the shop in Gaylord
is celebrating their one-year anniversary this
month. Roger and Dianna affirm they have
enjoyed serving customers throughout
northern Lower Michigan during their first
year of operation.
We know that once people stop by, Roger
affirms, they will come back to see us again.
I believe people can read people when they
meet them, and we are confident our cus-
tomers will see that we are honest, will pay
the highest value for their coins and scrap
gold, and we are extremely knowledgeable
about our business. We also have a nice vari-
ety of collector coins available for purchase.

Roger recalls that he first became interest-


ed in collecting coins back when he was just
a third-grader in school. A kid brought in
one of those blue Whitman penny collection
books and he had three silver Lincoln pen-
nies in it. I was hooked then and there.
Roger points out that if people have old
coins at home and are curious about the
value of those coins, Alpine Gold & Silver
Exchange offers a free appraisal service.
We encourage people to come in and
have us take a look at them, he relates. We
will look at the grade and condition, series
and key dates, and give them a fair estimate
of what they may be worth. I always advise
people not to clean any old coins they may
have, as that can ultimately diminish the
value.
Alpine Gold & Silver Exchange also buys
scrap gold and broken or unwanted jewelry
items. A regional business publication
recently named Alpine Gold and Silver
Exchange the number one gold buyer in
Northern Michigan for offering the highest
value for those trading in used silver and
gold items. Roger states that over the years
he has earned a reputation for offering cus-
tomers the best value for those items.
He notes, We often pay up to 60 or 70
percent more for those items than people
will receive at an event type traveling sale.
We have earned a solid reputation for our
honesty, fairness and knowledge over the
years. We firmly understand that word of
mouth referrals are our best promotion.
Whether interested in purchasing coins for
a collection, selling old coins, scrap gold or
silver, stop by and visit Roger and Dianna
Martin at Alpine Gold & Silver Exchange in
Gaylord, and be sure to congratulate them
on their first anniversary of their Gaylord
store. The shop is located at 1363 W. Main
Street (M-32), is open Monday through
Friday from 9 am until 6 pm, and Saturdays
from 9 am to 2 pm, and can be contacted at
(989) 448-2400.

Choosing a locally owned store
generates almost four times as
much economic benefit for the
surrounding region as shopping at
a chain, a new study has conclud-
ed. The analysis also found that
eating at a local restaurant pro-
duces more than twice the local
economic impact of dining at a
chain restaurant.
The research firm Civic
Economics analyzed data from fif-
teen independent retailers and
seven independent restaurants, all
located in Salt Lake City, and com-
pared 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, McDonalds, and P.F.
Changs).
The study found that the local
retailers 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 printing. 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.

The only way to end poverty is to build community
Underneath everything we are, underneath everything we do, we are all people.
Connected, Interdependent, United.
And when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all.
That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.
MANCELONA Mancelona High School
students have put one of the community's
most important intersections on the map.
Child and Adolescent Health Centers: At
the Intersection of Health and Education
was the theme of this year's School-Based
Health Center Awareness Month, recognized
by the School-Community Health Alliance of
Michigan (SCHA-MI). Members of the
Ironmen Health Center's Teen Advisory
Council and students from Mrs. Guerriero's
1st-hour art class collaborated to create an
artistic 3-D collage of their own photos,
assembled to reflect the 'intersection'
between health and education in
Mancelona.
The Ironmen Health Center entry compet-
ed with entries from other school-based
health centers throughout Michigan, and
was awarded third place in the state. It was
displayed with the other winners' works in
the State Capitol rotunda in Lansing during
the first week in March. First and second-
place awards went to teen health centers in
Pontiac/Waterford and Muskegon.
Erika Van Dam, who oversees the Ironmen
Health Center and serves as a SCHA-MI
Board member, says the achievement should
be a source of pride for the entire
community.
"These students brainstormed a work of
art," she said. "Not only does it speak to the
connection between their school and the
Ironmen Health Center, it also shows that
they care about Mancelona. They see the
value and the opportunities. We're thrilled
for them, and proud to be a part of their
community."
The Ironmen Health Center is a school-
linked health facility operated by the Health
Department of Northwest Michigan, in col-
laboration with Mancelona Public Schools,
and is located in the Mancelona Family
Resource Center at 205 Grove Street. It offers
health care and prevention services to any-
one age 10 to 21, as well as information for
parents and guardians on nearly any topic
related to adolescent health. It also provides
families with assistance in completing
MIChild and Healthy Kids applications.
Appointments are available year-round, and
walk-ins are welcome. All services are FREE.
The Health Department of Northwest
Michigan is mandated by the Michigan
Public Health Code to promote wellness,
prevent disease, provide quality healthcare,
address health problems of vulnerable popu-
lations, and protect the environment for the
residents and visitors of Antrim, Charlevoix,
Emmet, and Otsego counties. For more
information, visit www.nwhealth.org or call

If you traveled on US 131 this winter, just
south of Petoskeys city limits, it was hard to
miss the twenty foot snow sculpture.
That would be Frosty, who has coffee
cans for eyes, half of a 55-gallon barrel for a
hat, a nose made of a miniature orange safe-
ty cone, and tree branches for arms.
Mike Daniel, a Petoskey electrician, built
the giant snowman on his mothers (Ellen
Daniel) land.
Shes the reason we went that big, says
Daniel of his moms fun-loving side.
Daniel enlisted two buddies an excavator
and a builder as well as a dozen or so
neighborhood children to bring Frosty to life
for the third time in four years. Daniel says
he was motivated to encourage others, espe-
cially youngsters, to go outside [during win-
ter], and see all there is to do.
To date, Frosty has rated his fair share of
attention from tourists and passersby who
frequently snap his photo. Traveling snow-
board instructors from Oregon built jumps
around him, while a local television news
crew filmed him.
But, due to the rising temperatures and
rains, Frosty was looking a little ragged this
(grey) Easter.
Like the chilly weather, he was still hang-
ing on, but its clear his days are numbered.
But dont you cry, because if Mike Daniel
has his druthers and Old Man Winter coop-
erates, Frosty and his magic touch will be
back again someday.

Part of Companys Promise to
Support, Care for
Communities
Four northern Michigan community organizations
focused on the importance of early childhood development
as an essential ingredient for a successful future are receiving
$71,000 in support from Consumers Energy.
The research is clear: Support for early childhood pro-
grams promoting reading, social skills and ready-to-learn
activities is one of the best investments we can make in our
states future, said David G. Mengebier, president of the
Consumers Energy Foundation. Caring for our kids is an
essential part of caring for the communities we serve. Thats
our promise to Michigan.
The grants were announced today as part of the Great
Start, Great Futures Summit in Traverse City, which attracted
more than 150 community leaders from the region. The
grants come from a donor-advised fund established by
Consumers Energys parent company, CMS Energy, and held
by the United Way of Jackson County.
Consumers Energy will make the following grants from its
donor advised fund to support these early childhood pro-
grams:
$30,000 to Great Start Traverse Bay/Manistee for childcare
scholarships
$20,000 to Great Start Wexford/Missaukee for a parent
education program
$11,000 to Great Start Collaborative of Cheboygan, Otsego
and Presque Isle for preschool scholarships
$10,000 to Great Start Collaborative of Charlevoix, Emmet
and Northern Antrim Counties for childcare scholarships
and a parent education program
Since 2008, Consumers Energy has provided $1.6 million
in grants supporting early childhood programs. This is part
of the companys nearly $500,000 in support this year for
similar programs across Michigans Lower Peninsula.
Mary Manner, coordinator of Great Start Traverse
Bay/Manistee, said the grants are deeply appreciated by each
of the groups.
A recent study commissioned for our area found investing
in early childhood is a key strategy for achieving long term
economic success, Manner said. There is a clear path to a
brighter economic future, and it depends on how we raise
our youngest children.
These four Great Start collaboratives of northwest Lower
Michigan have been working together for several years on
common, strategic goals which include increasing access to
quality childcare and early education and expanding parent
education opportunities for all families. The strong partner-
ship has led to sharing resources, exchanging information at
all levels, and adopting a
regional communications
plan based on a simple
motto: Strong families,
thriving communities begin
with a Great Start. Together
they are working to make
Michigan a great place for
families and businesses to
grow and thrive.
The Consumers Energy
Foundation is the philan-
thropic arm of Consumers
Energy. It provides funding
for a variety of areas includ-
ing education, community,
civic and cultural develop-
ment, social services, the
environment, and emerging
issues. For more informa-
tion about the Consumers
Energy Foundation and its
support of Americas Promise, visit our website at www.con-
sumersenergy.com/foundation.
Consumers Energy, the principal subsidiary of CMS
Energy, provides natural gas and electricity to nearly 6.5 mil-
lion of Michigans 10 million residents in all 68 Lower
Peninsula counties.
Portable generators are useful when temporary or remote
electric power is needed, but they can be hazardous. The pri-
mary hazards to avoid when using them are carbon monox-
ide poisoning, electric shock or electrocution, and fire. The
United States Fire Administration (USFA) would like you to
know that there are simple steps you can take to prevent the
loss of life and property resulting from improper use of
portable generators.
To avoid carbon monoxide hazards:
- Always use generators outdoors and away from doors,
windows, and vents.
- NEVER use generators in homes, garages, basements,
crawl spaces, or other enclosed or partially enclosed areas,
even with ventilation.
- Follow manufacturers instructions.
- Install battery-operated or plug-in (with battery backup)
carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in your home, following man-
ufacturers instructions.
- Test CO alarms often and replace batteries when needed.
- NEVER cook inside or heat your house with a gas, wood
or charcoal grill.
- PAY attention to flu-like symptoms, especially if more
than one person has them. Headache, dizziness, confusion,
fatigue and nausea are all common symptoms of carbon
monoxide exposure.
- MOVE outside to fresh air immediately if a carbon
monoxide leak is suspected. Go to the emergency room or
call 911 if you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning.
To avoid generator electrical hazards:
- Keep the generator dry. Operate on a dry surface under
an open, canopy-like structure.
- Dry your hands before touching the generator.
- Plug appliances directly into generator or use a heavy-
duty outdoor-rated extension cord. Make sure entire exten-
sion cord is free of cuts or tears and the plug has all three
prongs, especially a grounding pin.
- NEVER plug the generator into a wall outlet. This prac-
tice, known as back-feeding, can cause an electrocution risk
to utility workers and others served by the same utility trans-
former.
- If its necessary to connect the generator to house wiring
in order to power appliances, have a qualified electrician
install appropriate equipment. Or, your utility company may
be able to install an appropriate transfer switch.
To Avoid Fire Hazards:
Before refueling the generator, turn it off and let it cool.
Fuel spilled on hot engine parts could ignite. Always store
fuel outside of living areas in properly labeled, non-glass
containers. Store fuel away from any fuel-burning appliance.

Administration website at www.usfa.dhs.gov/

The Otsego County Historical Society (OCHS) has received
a $3,232 grant from the Great Lakes Energy People Fund.
The grant will be used to complete an updating project at the
Historical Museum in downtown Gaylord, a major compo-
nent of which will be the replacement of the 1970s era car-
pet in the rear portion of the museum.
Stacy Jo Schiller, president of OCHS, states, We are very
excited and so grateful to Great Lakes Energy for granting
these funds so we can install new carpeting and get ready for
the Museum grand opening celebrating our 50th anniver-
sary.
The Otsego County Historical Society was founded in
1963, and is built upon the extensive legacy of the Pioneer
Society, which was formed in 1886. OCHS found a home to
display Otsego County historical artifacts collect over the
years in 1992, when Gordon and Marlene Everett donated a
former print shop, located at 320 W. Main Street in Gaylord,
to the Society to serve as a
historical museum. In 2011,
an extensive two-year updat-
ing project got underway at
the museum aimed at
preparing the facility for a
50th anniversary celebration
in 2013.
We are very proud of
what the Historical Society
has accomplished over the
years, notes Schiller. The
downtown Gaylord museum
has become a destination for
area residents and visitors to
Northern Michigan, presenting
a place to view a wealth of arti-
facts, photographs and refer-
ence materials dating back to
the founding of our county.
The Historical Society is also
focused on the preservation of
those items for future genera-
tions.
The Otsego County
Historical Society is a 501(c)3
non-profit organization, and
funding for their operations is
primarily through annual
Historical Society member-
ships and donations. Without
the grant from the Great Lakes
Energy People Fund, the com-
pletion of the museum updat-
ing and flooring project would
not have been possible this
year.
Members of the Great Lakes
Energy support the People
Fund by voluntarily rounding
up their utility bills to the next
highest dollar. The rounded up
amount is distributed to non-
profit organizations and chari-
table activities that benefit
people in communities served
by the cooperative.
For additional information about the Great Lakes Energy
People Fund, contact Great Lakes Energy at (888) 485-2537
or visit www.gtlakes.com. For additional information about

A new state law banning novice teen drivers from talking
on the cell phone while driving went into effect on Thursday,
March 28th.
The new law, referred to as "Kelsey's Law," is named for
Kelsey Raffaele, a 17-year-old Michigan resident who was
killed while talking on her cell phone and driving. Under the
law, which was signed by Gov. Rick Snyder on Jan. 8, teenage
drivers with a Level 1 or 2 license will have to comply with
cell phone restrictions.
Numerous studies have shown that new teen drivers are
far more likely to be involved in cell phone-related crashes
than older, more experienced drivers. AAA strongly encour-
aged passage of the law.
To help new teen drivers and their parents AAA offers a
web site, TeenDriving.AAA.com. This comprehensive
resource provides extensive state-specific information and
useful tools to help teens improve their driving skills. New
drivers will find interactive exercises, quizzes and games as
well of videos of experts and teens talking about safety.

You probably arent too worried about
it, but April is Stress Awareness Month.
Each year, the Health Resource Network
sponsors this month to inform people
about the dangers of stress and to share
successful coping strategies. Obviously,
its important to reduce stress in all
walks of life including your invest-
ment activities. How can you cut down
on the various stresses associated with
investing?
Here are a few possible stress-
busters:
Know your risk tolerance. If youre
constantly worrying about the value of
your investments, your portfolio may
simply be too volatile for your individ-
ual risk tolerance. Conversely, if youre
always feeling that your investments
will never provide you with the growth
you need to achieve your long-term
goals, you might be investing too con-
servatively.
Know what to expect from your
investments. Uncertainty is often a
leading cause of stress. So when you
purchase investments that are mysteri-
ous to you, you shouldnt be surprised if
they perform in ways that raise your
stress levels. Never invest in something
unless you fully understand its charac-
teristics and risk potential.
Be prepared for market volatility.
Over the long term, the financial mar-
kets have trended upward, though their
past performance cant guarantee future
results. Yet for periods of months, and
even years, these same markets can
sputter and decline. So when you invest,
be aware of this volatility; if youre pre-
pared for it, you wont be shocked when
it happens, and you should be able to
better keep stress at bay.
Maintain realistic expectations. If
you think your
investments are
going to earn a
very high rate of
return, year after
year, you are more
than likely going
to be disappoint-
ed and you
could easily get
stressed out.
Youre much bet-
ter off, from a
stress standpoint,
not to expect eye-
popping results.
Diversify your
portfolio. If you
were only to own
one asset class,
such as growth
stocks, and that
particular seg-
ment took a big hit
during a market
drop, your whole
portfolio could
suffer, and it could
take years to
recover causing you no end of stress.
But if you spread your investment dol-
lars among a range of vehicles stocks,
bonds, government securities and so on
your portfolio has a better chance of
weathering the ups and downs of the
market. (Keep in mind, though, that
while diversification may help you
reduce the effects of volatility, it cant
prevent losses or guarantee profits.)
Think long term. If you only measure
your investment success by short-term
results, you can feel frustrated and
stressed. But when you stop to consider
your objectives, you may find that the
most important ones, such as a com-
fortable retirement, are all long-term in
nature. Consequently, it makes more
sense to measure the progress youre
making with your investments in peri-
ods of years, or even decades, rather
than days or months. Instead of fretting
over your monthly investment state-
ments, compare where you are today
versus where you were 10 or 15 years
ago. The results may well surprise and
help de-stress you.
Stress Awareness Month will come
and go. But by making the right moves,
you can help take some of the stress out
of investing for a long time to come.

It was a wonderful winter for the Ice Tree situated in front of the Otsego County
Courthouse, resulting in a colossal sculpture of frozen water that is truly mammoth in both
size and even in appearance. While area residents and visitors have certainly enjoyed the
gradual build up of this downtown Gaylord icon this seasonmany also eagerly anticipate its
demise with the approaching warmth of spring.

This years 5 on 5 Dodgeball tournament
and fundraiser, which featured a record 45
teams and was held on March 23th, benefit-
ted needy youngsters in Central America.
The annual event - now in its ninth year -
took place at the North Central Michigan
College gymnasium and was organized by
Genesis Church. It attracted participants of
all ages, from middle school students to a
57-year-old, mainly from northern Michigan,
but from as far as Ann Arbor.
Dan Hasty, the student pastor of Genesis
and organizer of the event, estimated that
about $1500 was raised for Orphan Helpers,
a multi-denominational Christian non-profit
organization which ministers to orphaned,
abused, and incarcerated children in
Honduras and El Salvador. Hasty said that
participating in the lighthearted competition
with a serious purpose allows people to be
part of something bigger than themselves.
Norm Byers, Genesis Churchs lead pastor,
added: Its a value of our church to care for
the most vulnerable in society.
Its no small commitment to pull off this
event which brought in hundreds of people.
Pastor Byers said that it took 40 volunteers to
do everything from sell concessions to dis-
tribute flyers to work the crowd. Walmart
and B.C. Pizza were among the area busi-
nesses that donated the goodies presented to
the winning teams.
This year the Boys 2 Men team, of
Petoskey, were the 2013 champions of the
bracket-style tournament. The team of five
was awarded a large wrench - a nod to an
oft-quoted line (If you can dodge a wrench,
you can dodge a ball.) from the movie,
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.
Psalm 91, also of Petoskey, won the conso-
lation Toilet Bowl competition. Those five
players were given a gold-colored toilet seat.
Other participants in this years Dodgeball
tourney, with creative names and getups,
included: Zombie Tac Force, Chucking
Norris, and Rockn4 the Man.

Medicaid Expansion is a Fiscally
Sound Decision
By Stephanie Riemer-Matuzak, CEO, Mercy Hospital
Grayling
To the Editor
Legislators in Michigan have an important decision to
make for patients, businesses, the local economy, and
Michigan's budget by expanding the Medicaid program,
they will make basic, cost-effective health care services
available to those who would otherwise go without.
With a belief that health care is a basic human right and
that expanding access to it is both a moral and practical
imperative, Trinity Health and Mercy Hospital Grayling
have long advocated that expanding access and coverage is
an essential element of health care transformation.
Republican and Democratic governors nationwide
Michigan included recognize that Medicaid expansion
will save state taxpayers and businesses money while pro-
viding health insurance and care to millions of uninsured
adults.
It is the right thing to do for patients. It's estimated that
expansion will provide insurance to 450,000 uninsured
adults in Michigan. According to a New England Journal of
Medicine study published in September 2012, state
Medicaid expansions to cover low-income adults were sig-
nificantly associated with improved health status and
reduced mortality.
It is the right thing to do for businesses and the local
economy. Healthy citizens have improved quality of life
and contribute more to the economy. Without Medicaid
expansion, Michigan will continue to see high numbers of
uninsured seeking uncompensated care, the cost of which
is shifted to businesses as well as to insured families who
end up paying more in health care premiums. Medicaid
expansion is also critical to the financial security of local
hospitals, which provide needed jobs and vital services to
the community.
Finally, it is the right thing to do for the state budget. As
the federal government will finance 100% of expansion
through 2016, and 90% in 2020 and thereafter, the financial
commitment of expansion to the state is minimal. In fact,
Michigan is expected to see about $1 billion in savings if
Medicaid is expanded enough to fund expansion for 20
years without using any state general funds.
Expansion is strongly supported by physicians, hospitals,
health plans, consumer groups, business groups, employ-
ers, and many others because it is a sound fiscal decision.
Trinity Health and Mercy Hospital Grayling support
Medicaid expansion because it will save money and save
lives.
We are part of a large and growing coalition
(www.ExpandMedicaid.com) working to win the Michigan
Legislatures approval of Medicaid expansion in the states
FY 2014 budget, which takes effect October 1. Please visit
our website and join us in urging the Legislature to pass
Medicaid expansion and save Michigan money and save
lives.

How To Test Your Home for Harmful
Substances
By Debbie Johnson
Danger may be lurking in your home. In fact, millions of
homes have some kind of environmental hazard lurking inside
them ranging from minor allergens to carcinogens. If one or
more family members are exhibiting the slightest of recurring
symptoms, your house should be tested.
The American Lung Association (ALA) reports that those who
are most susceptible to hazardous substances in the home are
the ones who spend the most time at home: children, pregnant
women, the elderly and people with lung disease. The ALA fur-
ther warns that most contaminating substances give no warning
of their presence and produce vague symptoms that are hard to
pin down to a specific cause.
Over the years, several indoor air pollutants have been identi-
fied and tests have been established that allow residents to test
their own homes for these dangerous substances. Check with
your local health department to test for such substances. Also, if
youve been subject to any of the symptoms described below,
see your family physician.
Below is a list of many common home pollutants:
Molds: Found in soil, on dead plants and on food, there are
over 250,000 types of molds. Mold is often identified as a white
or colored furry fungus on surfaces. Health problems that have
been associated with mold are allergies, a chronic cold, con-
junctivitis, asthma, sneezing attacks, exacerbated eczema, red
eyes, and shortness of breath. Possible sources of mold include
wallpaper, glue, books, leather objects, food and wooden
objects. Mold grows best in poorly ventilated areas.
Pesticides: Domestic pesticides are used in products aimed
at ridding the home of a variety of pests. Other possible sources
of domestic pesticides are wood surfaces that have been treated
with modern wood preservatives and carpets treated with pesti-
cides. Some pesticides can damage the central nervous system.
For not-so-serious pest problems, non-toxic detergents or
mechanical controls are a better choice than pesticides.
Ozone: This is found in summertime smog and in polluted
outdoor air. However, it can also be a problem inside the house.
Some sources of ozone are ultraviolet lamps, laser printers and
photocopiers. Overexposure to high levels of ozone can cause
damage to the immune system and have adverse effects on lung
function, especially during physical exertion.
Organic solvents: This term describes a wide range of
potentially volatile substances. Once the odor is inhaled, it is
spread through the lungs and nervous system. Exposure to
these solvents may cause allergies, headaches, migraines, sleep-
ing disorders, dizziness, shortness of breath, bronchitis, cough-
ing and eczema. Possible sources of exposure to organic sol-
vents are open fires, tobacco smoke, exhaust fumes, turpentine,
paint and coatings, bath salts, bubble bath, correction fluid and
nail polish remover.
Dust mites: Incredibly, these tiny arachnids are found in
every bed. They attach themselves to dust, freely move around
the house and are easily inhaled. Once inhaled, allergens pene-
trate the mucous membranes. Possible adverse health effects
include a constant cold, conjunctivitis, asthma, sneezing
attacks, reddened eyes and shortness of breath. Dust mites can
be found in mattresses, upholstered furniture and pillows. If it is
determined that exposure to dust mites are the cause of health
problems, you should thoroughly clean and remove dust traps
and frequently wash and change bed linens.
Formaldehyde: This colorless gas has a pungent smell and is
a carcinogen. Exposure to formaldehyde provokes allergic sensi-
tization and irritates mucous membranes. There is often a gen-
eral feeling of ill health and airway disorders. To diminish the
effects, remove all furniture containing formaldehyde and use
formaldehyde-free disinfectants, varnishes, textiles and cosmet-
ics. Wash textiles and materials before using them.
Formaldehyde is found in chipboard, furniture, soft fiberboard,
foams for door frame attachments, cavity and roof insulation,
floor adhesives, carpets, parquet floor sealing and tobacco
smoke.
Tobacco smoke: With about 5,000 different chemicals, this
pollutant can cause substantial health problems. The smoke is
carcinogenic and has one hundred times the concentration for
passive smokers. It can also cause vascular diseases, airway dis-
orders, allergies, and osteoporosis.
Radon gas: This radioactive substance is given off when soil
or rock, with trace amounts of uranium or radium, decay. The
gas seeps into a home through cracks in the foundation floor
and walls, drains, sump pumps, joints and other openings. The
United States Environmental Protection Agency estimates that
one out of every fifteen homes has been contaminated with
radon. The gas is responsible for thousands of deaths each year
and is the second-leading cause of lung cancer. A state-certified
or EPA qualified contractor can be hired to test for the gas.
Home testing kits are also available.
Carbon monoxide: This poisonous gas can kill easily.
Because it is a colorless, odorless gas, its presence isnt always
noticeable. It can cause fatigue, headache, confusion, nausea
and dizziness. An alarm, simi-
lar to a smoke alarm, can be
purchased and plugged into
an electrical outlet. If levels
are too high, the alarm goes
off.
Asbestos: A known car-
cinogen, this substance can be
found in older homes. Check
with your local health depart-
ment for tests and removal
procedures, as well as for the
proper treatment for those
who have come in contact
with it.

Could you have gluten sensitivity?
By Deb Hagen-Foley
Celiac disease is a digestive condition
resulting from the consumption of gluten.
Celiac disease impacts nearly one-percent of
Americans, more than two million persons.
Gluten is found in foods containing wheat,
barley or rye. Bread, pasta, and cookies con-
taining wheat, barley or rye have gluten.
Gluten is also found in many unexpected
places, like salad dressing and vitamins.
Persons with celiac disease who eat foods
containing gluten experience an immune
reaction in their small intestines, as the body
attempts to digest the food. This immune
reaction causes damage to the small intes-
tines and leads to an inability to absorb some
nutrients. Normally, the lining of the small
intestines is lined with tiny, hair-like projec-
tions called villi. These villi absorb the nutri-
ents from food and supply these as needed
throughout the body. Celiac disease results in
damage to the villi, impairing the ability of
the small intestines to utilize nutrients.
Nutrients are eliminated from the body
instead of being absorbed.
Symptoms of celiac disease include
abdominal pain, diarrhea and bloating. Less
obvious symptoms are anemia, joint pain,
muscle cramps, skin rash and mouth sores.
The causes of celiac disease are unknown. It
appears to run in families, so if a relative has
been diagnoses with the disease, there is an
increased likelihood of close relatives con-
tracting celiac disease. Untreated celiac dis-
ease is associated with a significantly higher
risk for gastrointestinal cancers. Testing for
celiac disease can be as simple as a blood test
for specific antibodies or may require a biop-
sy of the small intestines. Celiac disease has
no cure, but the symptoms can be effectively
managed through dietary changes. Gluten-
intolerance, a less severe version of the condi-
tion, has similar symptoms.
Treatment of celiac disease requires adher-
ence to a gluten free diet. A gluten-free diet
means avoiding products containing wheat,
rye and barley and their derivatives. As the
demand for more gluten-free products
increases, more gluten-free options are
becoming available. More restaurants are
adding gluten-free options to the menu as
consumers are requesting these choices. It is
often difficult to know whether products con-
tain gluten as no universal labeling currently
exists for gluten.
Is a gluten-free diet right for you? Gluten-
free diets are becoming increasingly popular
for persons without celiac disease. According
to one survey, 29% of 1000 respondents
reported wanting to reduce the amount of
gluten in their diets, the highest percentage
since they began asking the question in 2009
(NPD Group, 2013). Celebrities such as Miley
Cyrus and Gwyneth Paltrow have advocated a
gluten-free diet. Eliminating gluten entirely
for three weeks or longer will demonstrate
whether you have gluten sensitivity and if a
gluten free diet supports your health.
