When 24 year-old Grayling resident, Eli
Van Nuck, climbed out of his kayak on
the Au Sable River this past summer, lit-
tle did he suspect he was about to find a
hidden message that pre-dated his age
by ten years.
“I was kayaking near the golf course,”
Eli recalls, “got out and began walking in
swampy area. I saw few bottles in the
water, and started thinking about mes-
sages in a bottle. Five seconds later I
picked one up and much to my sur-
prise…there was a message in it!”
The message read simply:
“from Teresa McKimmy. I’m 8 and I
have one sister Ellen is 9, two brothers,
one is Dave…he’s 16, one is Toby…he’s
13. I’m the littlest…you call me tele-
phone number ------------. I got a cat, a
bird, a fish…..”
Not exactly a find which will grant
three wishes, but the message intrigued
Eli enough that he searched the letter
writers name on internet, and asked his
cousin, who is a private detective, to try
and locate Ms. McKimmey. He did.
“I was very surprised to hear someone
had found it,” Teresa (McKimmey) Coats
said about receiving that call. “They
called my sister on Thanksgiving Day.
She called and said a private detective

Sgt. Donald Starks, of Grayling,
joined fellow Army volunteers to

Things will be heating up for a cool time
next weekend in Mackinaw City as the 20th
annual Winterfest celebration kicks off three
days of fun indoors and out from January
17th through the 19th, framed by the gor-
geous beauty of the Straits area.
All during the Winterfest weekend,
Mackinaw City will be bustling with activities,
events and competitions. Outdoor festivi-
ties will include amateur snow carving
(weather permitting), a poker walk, the
always popular Outhouse Race,
sleigh/wagon rides and lots of games and
activities for the kids. There will be plenty
going on indoors as well, including a
euchre tournament at Mancino’s, a chili
cook off at the American Legion Post, a 3 on
3 Ice Hockey Tournament and a family
skate night at the
Mackinaw Recreation
Complex Ice Rink, plus the
Mackinaw City Area Arts
Council will be featuring at
least 10 area artists in an
exhibit at Mackinaw
Clothing.
There will be a $1,000
grand prize this year for
the winning Outhouse
Race team. The Outhouse
Race begins with a hilari-
ous “Parade of Outhouses”
with judging in several cat-
egories. The races, with
one person inside the out-
house and four people out-
side pushing or pulling, will
begin after the parade. The
races are open to both adult
and junior teams. This year
the prize money is sponsored
by several area businesses.
Those wishing to enter the race can call 1-
800-301-1965 or visit www.mackinawout-
houserace.com for details.
Another highlight of Winterfest is the
Audie’s Black Tie Scholarship Ball, “Polar
Nights,” which will take place next Saturday
evening January 19th, from 8pm to midnight.
Attendees enjoy live music, a cocktail recep-
tion and Chef Nick’s gourmet hors d’ oeuvres
and silent auction. For additional details call
Audie’s at (231) 436-5744.
Most Winterfest activities are free with the
purchase of a three-dollar 2013 Winterfest
button, available at the Chamber of
Commerce (new location at
226 E. Central Avenue),
Candy Corner, the Dixie
Saloon, Audie’s and various
businesses in town. A bonus
to purchasing a Winterfest
button is that if the number
on the back of the button
matches winning numbers
posted at the Winterfest
Sound Trailer, Candy Corner,
and at the Ice Fishing
Contest, the winner takes
home between $1 and $20 in
cash! Winterfest button win-
ners must claim their win-
ning envelopes at the
Chamber Office by Friday
January 25th.

a complete schedule of
events, visit www.mackinaw-
chamber.com or call (231)

had called looking for me, so she gave me his
number and I called him and he read it to
me and I remembered writing it.”
Teresa recalls that the letter was written in
1978, when she was a young girl vacationing
with her family at the Yogi
Bear Park near Grayling.
While she is amazed her
message in a now vintage
Faygo bottle was found after
34 years, Teresa also points
out,
“I would not recommend
people to go out and send
messages in bottles. If I
would have known at the age
of 8 how precious our water-
ways are here in Michigan I would not have
thrown a pop can in the water.”
Still, Eli’s chance find gives hope for those
who may be stranded on a deserted island
somewhere…

encourage them to stay motivated and not
quit, and apply those skills to their game. We
were a part of pre-game show, and I tossed
the coin at start of game.”
U.S. Army Sgt. Donald Starks, a 2004
Grayling High School graduate, understands
commitment, motivation, and bravery.
Starks was awarded a Silver Star from U.S.
Army Gen. David H. Petraeus for his bravery
and leadership demonstrated during an
insurgent attack on Command Outpost
Margah in eastern Afghanistan on October
30th.
“Six of us were on a hilltop and were
attacked at about one in the morning,”
Starks recalls. “We had to fight our way off
the hill to get back to our main camp.”
A release on the Defense Video & Imagery
Distribution System website details that
Starks, the fire team leader for C Company,
2nd Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat team,
was in charge of the team located on a hill-
top observation post and that the attack
against that team involved approximately 25
insurgents. Overwhelmed and running low
on ammunition, Starks lead his team
through enemy fire approximately five kilo-
meters back to COP Margah where the
injured soldiers were treated.
Incredibly, about a week later, Starks was
wounded in another attack.
“A rocket hit in front of me and another
soldier,” he relates. “We were awarded
Purple Heart Medals.”
When I asked Starks how, in face of such
adversity, he is able to continue forward in
his mission to serve his country, he replied
without hesitation.
“It is part of who I am…how my parents
(Dan and Linda Starks of Grayling) raised
me, and the values learned from my
wrestling coach in high school. It is a mes-
sage that I and the other soldiers communi-
cated to the All American Game players; to
stay motivated and don’t quit. The experi-
ence we all had during that week leading up
to the game, meeting and mentoring to
those talent football players, was a great
one!”
About the game; during its 12-year history,
the U.S. Army All American has produced
175 NFL alumni, 12 Super Bowl champions,
five Rookies of the Year and one Heisman
Trophy winner. The results of this year’s
game; East 15, West 8.

her well through her many volunteer contri-
butions to the community over the years. I
retired in 2006 and continued to be
impressed with Rosie in her volunteer
efforts, and at last month’s FOP meeting, I
nominated her for our Citizen of the Year
recognition.”
In his nomination letter, Dye noted “I
believe a citizen of the year is someone who
connects with their community and goes
above and beyond to make a difference;
Rosie has clearly done that. She continues to
be the first to step forward when an organi-
zation needs help planning an event or
rounding-up volunteers. Her focus is often
the children of our community and, with
them; she passes on the legacy and impor-
tance of volunteerism. We should all be
thankful for the time she has given and the
lives she has touched.”
Many in the Otsego County area are aware
of Rosie Warner’s extraordinary work as chair
of the Community Giving Program, and her
steadfast determination this past Christmas
season to ensure the success of the Toys for
Tots program after a devastating fire at the
Alpine Plaza destroyed many toys that had
been collected. What is absolutely amazing,
however, is the list of organizations she has
lent her volunteer talents to over that last
several years. Among those are:
Girl Scouts USA where she was the Special
Events Coordinator for 23 years, the Day
Camp Director for 20 years, a Leader for 17
years, the Service Unit Director for 7 years,
and a National Convention Delegate in 1999.

St Judes Bikeathon Fundraiser
Rosie, who was married to Ray Enderle for
several years, has a “blended family” that
includes five daughters, three sons and 18
grandchildren. Many of the above volunteer
efforts were accomplished while Rosie was a
single mother and working a full time job
plus two part time jobs.
“Most of work I do is for or with children,”
Rosie observes, “because I strongly believe
that every person has value and that as
adults we need to build a strong community
for children to thrive in. Working with the
Girl Scouts was large force in my life. I’ve
always said that has given me far more than I
can ever give back. It is a group of people
who are like minded in thoughts about chil-
dren and their possibilities and the ability to
build their confidence, character and
courage.”
When Rosie was told she was selected as
FOP Citizen of the Year, she relates “I was
absolutely shocked when they called to tell
me. The reward for me is being able to work
together with people and see the fruits of our
labor.”
She adds, “So many people in our commu-
nity quietly do so much more than I do. I feel
I am just a citizen in this community, one of
a large group of neighbors who care for each
other. We need to take care of each other,
and abide by the principle that ‘there but for
grace of God go I.’ Hopefully we can teach
our children to share in that respect and
responsibility for those in their community.”
Congratulations Rosie Warner (Enderle)
for being selected as the 2012 Citizen of the
Year by the Carl L. Darling, Jr. FOP Lodge

Camp Warm Hearts is a Weekend winter
camp on February 1, 2, and 3rd for children
and teens, ages 5-15, who have experienced
the death of a loved one. Hospice of Helping
Hands and Mid Michigan Home Care are
bringing bereaved children and teens
together to warm their hearts.
Staffed by volunteers and employees of
each of the collaborating
agencies, at camp children
will be assigned to rooms
based on gender and age. In
each room children will
build a bond of friendship
and support as they tell sto-
ries and participate in grief
activities. Many kids don’t
talk about their loss at school
because it makes them feel
separated from their peers.
Camp allows them to see
they are not alone and
teaches them it is okay to
grieve. However, talking isn’t
the only way children grieve.
They also grieve through
play and will have the oppor-
tunity to do lots of fun activi-
ties such as sledding, octa-
ball, pool, ping pong, arts &
crafts and much more that
will keep them busy all
weekend long.
On the last day of camp, the children will
participate in a balloon release. This activity
symbolizes them navigating a changed rela-
tionship with their loved one and letting go.
Camp will take place at “The Springs”
between West Branch and Gladwin on M-30.
To attend Camp, the child must have experi-
enced a significant loss such as loss of a
grandparent, parent, sibling, aunt or uncle.
There is no fee for a child to attend camp.
However, due to limited space, we can only
accept a maximum of 55 children between
the ages of 5-15. Camper registration can be
initiated online at
www.HospiceofHelpingHands.com.
Registration deadline is January 14. After
completion of the online form, parents will
be contacted by phone to complete the
camper registration process. If you would
like to donate to Camp Warm Hearts, register
a child for camp, or would just like more
information, please contact the Hospice of
Helping Hands’ office at 800-992-6592.

The Salvation Army Family Store and
Donation Center in Gaylord is a win-win for
both area shoppers and for the local com-
munity. The shop, one of six being rolled out
in the organization’s Eastern Michigan divi-
sion between 2012 and 2014, opened on
October 26th of last year, and is operated
under the direction of Tim Schroeder, Thrift
Store Manager and and Maria Alsobrooks,
Assistant Store Manager.
“The inventory we carry comes from com-
munity donations,” Schroeder explains, “and
we rotate that inventory consistently to keep
it fresh for our customers. Our revenue, after
expenses, is utilized to help fund the work
the Salvation Army does in this community
for those in need.”
Brian Pearson, Business Manager for
Salvation Army in Otsego County, notes, “In
Otsego County, much of the funding we
receive is used to help residents in need of
assistance for paying utility bills. We work in
cooperation with First Call for Help and the
Otsego Housing & Homeless Coalition and
other community service organizations in
assisting individuals and families in need.
We also provide disaster assistance for shel-
ter and food, and on a more limited basis, we
offer help for paying for prescriptions and
gas vouchers.”
Revenue from the Gaylord Salvation Army
Family Store is critical in supporting the
Salvation Army’s mission of “Doing the Most
Good.” The store also provides employment
for 20 people. Shoppers are impressed with
the stores clean, well lit and organized
atmosphere, as well as the outstanding val-
ues that can be found among the huge vari-
ety of items ranging from mens, womens
and childrens clothing, books, DVD’s, house-
hold and kitchen ware, toys, and even large
items such as furniture, televisions and
appliances.
Schroeder points out, “Our assistant man-
ager, Maria Alsobrooks, has many years of
retail experience. She has done and excel-
lent job arranging the items in our store and
regularly reorganizes that inventory so shop-
pers find something new when they visit. We
also offer a 15-percent discount for Senior
shoppers every Wednesday, and a15-percent
discount for those serving or who have
served in the military on Thursdays.”
Shoppers will also find half-off specials
each week, and the store offers pick-up serv-
ice for donated items. In keeping with the
organizations mission of “Doing the Most
Good,” clothing items that aren’t sold are
baled and sent to 3rd world countries.
“Many people don’t realize that the
Salvation Army is a church,” states
Schroeder. “We are Christian mission and a
Christ-center organization. We are about
helping others.”
The Salvation Army Family Store is located
at 919 S. Otsego Avenue in Gaylord, and is
open Monday through Saturday from 10 am
until 7 pm. For those wishing to drop off
items for donation (this is especially wel-
come during the slower first few months of
the year), they can stop by between 9 am
and 7 pm Monday through Saturday.

As an investor, how can you avoid
making mistakes? It’s not always easy,
because investing can be full of poten-
tial pitfalls. But if you know what the
most common mistakes are at different
stages of an investor’s life, you may have
a better chance of avoiding these costly
errors.
Let’s take a look at some investment
mistakes you’ll want to avoid when
you’re young, when you’re in mid-
career, when you’re nearing retirement
and when you’ve just retired.
When you’re young …
Mistake: Investing too conservatively
(or not at all) — If you’re just entering
the working world, you may not have a
lot of money with which to invest. But
don’t wait until your income grows —
putting away even a small amount each
month can prove quite helpful.
Additionally, don’t make the mistake of
investing primarily in short-term vehi-
cles that may preserve your principal
but offer little in the way of growth
potential. Instead, position your portfo-
lio for growth. Of course, stock prices
will always fluctuate, but you potential-
ly have decades to overcome these
short-term declines. Since this money is
for retirement, your focus should be on
the long term — and it’s impossible to
reach long-term goals with short-term,
highly conservative investments.
When you’re in mid-career …
Mistake: Putting insufficient funds
into your retirement accounts — At this
stage of your life, your earning power
may well have increased substantially.
As a result, you should have more
money available to invest for the future
— specifically, you may now be able to
“max out” on your IRA and still boost
your contributions to your employer-
sponsored retirement plan, such as your
401(k), 403(b) or 457(b). These retire-
ment accounts offer tax advantages that
you may not receive in ordinary savings
and investment accounts. Try to put
more money into these retirement
accounts every time your salary goes up.
When you’re nearing retirement …
Mistake: Not having balance in your
investment portfolio — When they’re
within just a few years of retirement,
some people may go to extremes, either
investing too aggressively to try to make
up for lost time or too conservatively in
an attempt to avoid potential declines.
Both these strategies could be risky. So
as you near retirement, seek to balance
your portfolio. This could mean shifting
some of your investment dollars into
fixed-income vehicles to provide for
your current income needs while still
owning stocks that provide the growth
potential to help keep up with inflation
in your retirement years.
When you’ve just retired …
Mistake: Failing to determine an
appropriate withdrawal rate — Upon
reaching retirement, you will need to
carefully manage the money you’ve
accumulated in your IRA, 401(k) and all
other investment accounts. Obviously,
your chief concern
is outliving your
money, so you’ll
need to determine
how much you
can withdraw
each year. To
arrive at this fig-
ure, take into
account your cur-
rent age, your pro-
jected longevity,
the amount of
money you’ve
saved and the esti-
mated rate of
return you’re get-
ting from your
investments. This
type of calculation
is complex, so you
may want to con-
sult with a finan-
cial professional.
By avoiding
these errors, you
can help ensure
that, at each stage
of your life, you’re
doing what you can to keep making
progress toward your financial goals.

"Vhcrc Vc Mukc
Cur Bu)ing Fun"
By Jim Akans
Riding high at the top of the NFC South,
with a 13-3 season record, the Atlanta
Falcons football team is heading into the
playoffs this coming weekend, facing the
Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at the Georgia
Dome at 1 pm (on FOX TV). Area residents
tuning into this weekend’s game can take
some Northern Michigan pride in knowing a
1994 Gaylord St. Mary School graduate, Dr.
Joe Krzemien, serves as the Falcon’s official
team chiropractor; keeping them tuned up
and playing strong for this weekend gridiron
battle.
“This is my second season as the official
team chiropractor for the Falcons,” Dr.
Krzemien told me during a telephone inter-
view. “My practice, Georgia Spine and Sports
Rehab, is located near the team headquar-
ters. My specialty is soft tissues, so I work on
a lot of leg tendon injuries and I’ve worked
with pro athletes for many years, from virtu-
ally every sport. That combination was a
good fit for what the Falcons were looking for
in a team chiropractor.”
And how is the team’s health?
“We have stayed relatively healthy through
the regular season,” Krzemien affirms.
“During the game, I start about four hours
before the game working on the players and
am on the field during the game if needed.
The team trainer assesses any injury situa-
tion and evaluates who will take care of the
problem among the sports med team on the
field.”
Krzemien completed his undergrad stud-
ies at CMU in 1998, moved to Atlanta for
graduate school, and earned a degree from
Atlanta’s Life University College of
Chiropractic in 2002.
He laughs, “I kind of like the weather
down here! Though I do miss the Northern
Michigan area. My family is up there and I
try to get there when I can…preferably in the
summer.”
As for this Sunday’s game; “Everybody on
the team is very excited about the game. We
had a great season and we all felt we would
make the playoffs and take our run to the
Super Bowl.”
The Seahawks come into the playoff game
with a 12-5 record. The two teams have
never met in a playoff game. As of press time,
“The Linemakers” website has the Falcons as
2-point favorites for this Sunday’s game.
Be sure to put your back into it Atlanta!
Hey, Kids! Are you Battle-Ready? Kick-off for the Battle of
the Books team reading program begins at 10 am Saturday,
January 12th at the Otsego County Library.
Form a five-member team (comprised of any combination
of 4th- 6th grade boys/girls from any Otsego County school or
homeschool) or register individually. Teams will compete in
quiz-like “battles” using their reading skills to successfully
answer questions about ten exciting books they have read.
Top Otsego County Library teams will battle teams from other
libraries for this year’s championship.
During the first meeting, teams will meet their coaches,
design a team t-shirt logo and receive the set of Battle Books
to read. Volunteer adults who would like to coach or assist are
encouraged to contact the library now.
Sponsored by Gobbler’s Restaurant, Trinity Lutheran
Church and the Friends of the Otsego County Library, this
exciting program runs through March 23. Registration closes
on January 10th. Contact the library at 989-732-5841 for more
information.

Ice dams occur in climates with freezing temperatures.
When the temperature in the attic is above freezing, snow on
the roof melts and runs down the sloping roof. When the
snowmelt runs down the roof and reaches the colder eaves
(overhang) and gutters, it refreezes.
After several days of melting-freezing cycles, the freezing
snowmelt builds up and forms a dam of ice, behind which
water ponds. The ponding water can back up under the roof
shingles until water enters the attic and eventually does dam-
age to the interior ceilings, walls, and contents along the exte-
rior walls.
Research has shown sun exposure in the winter has little
effect on attic air temperature. Warm air from living spaces
below penetrating into the attic is usually the culprit in the
formation of roof ice dams. The presence of significant icicles
along the gutter or eaves may be an indication of roof ice
damming.
There's no way to guarantee an ice dam will not damage
your home, but you can reduce the likelihood of an ice dam
forming in the first place:
•Thoroughly clean all leaves, sticks, and other debris from
rain gutters and down spouts. This allows melting roof snow
to flow into gutters and through down spouts.
•Strive to keep snow on your roof to a minimum. Long-han-
dled devices called "roof rakes" let you stand on the ground
and pull the snow off the
roof. Keeping heavy snow
loads off your roof reduces
the chances for both ice dam
formation and roof failure
due to the weight.
•Keep gutters and down
spouts clear of snow and ici-
cles all winter.
•Evaluate the insulation
and ventilation in your attic. Most experts agree attic insula-
tion should have an R-value of at least R-30 (R-38 is preferable
in northern climates). In addition, good airflow from under
the eaves or soffit area along the underside of the roof and out
through the roof vents is essential. The insulation prevents
heat loss from the interior of the home. The venting allows the
attic air to stay cold enough to prevent or minimize the
freeze/thaw cycle on the roof. Consult a reputable roofing
and/or insulation contractor about these improvements.

Located just far enough off the beaten
path to embrace a gorgeous, peaceful wood-
ed setting, yet only about ten minutes from
downtown Gaylord, Michaywe’ Inn the
Woods restaurant provides the perfect spot
to enjoy a delicious dining experience that is
both comfortably casual, and memorably
elegant.
The menu offers a moderately priced and
nicely varied selection of traditional
American cuisine, highlighted by freshly pre-
pared soups and salads, specialty sandwich-
es and burgers, house favorites including
New York Strip steak, hearty Beef Pot Roast,
Danish Baby Back Ribs, Lake Superior
Whitefish, Chicken Frangelico and more.
The restaurant also offers lighter fare, includ-
ing Homemade Pizza’s and a selection of
tasty appetizers such as Bacon Wrapped
Scallops, Flatbread Bruschetta and Boneless
Buffalo Wings.
Chef John Kaye, who learned his culinary
craft at Oakland Community College and
apprenticed at the prestigious Orchard Lake
Country Club, oversees the kitchen at
Michaywe’ Inn the Woods, and has accumu-
lated over 25 years of experience as a chef in
leading northern Michigan area resorts and
downstate country clubs.
He states, “We take a ‘food-first’ approach
here at Michaywe’ Inn the Woods. Flavors,
textures, seasonings and freshness are our
priorities. We purchase as many of our
ingredients locally as possible, and we even
have our own herb garden right here on the
grounds. We believe that the little details
make the difference for our guests.”
The Michaywe’ Inn the Woods setting is
simply superb, with a wall of windows along
two sides of the main dining area beautifully
capturing the views of the surrounding
woodlands, the graceful walking bridge arch-
ing over Lake Michaywe, and the open fair-
ways of the Pines Golf Course.
Outside dining is available, as are two
large banquet rooms; the Terrace Room,
which accesses a huge outdoor deck over-
looking the lake, and the Bridgeview, room
with a vista that frames the walking bridge
across the lake. Each of the large facilities
are utilized regularly for wedding receptions,
rehearsal dinners and business or organiza-
tional meetings and gatherings. Michaywe’
Inn the Woods also features a separate cock-
tail lounge area with a full selection of wines,
beers and spirits and flat screen televisions
strategically placed for optimal guest view-
ing.
Michaywe’ Inn the Woods is open year
round with the exception of a two-week peri-
od in early April for spring-cleaning. Winter
hours of operation are Monday
through Thursday, 4 pm until 9
pm, Friday 4 pm until 10 pm,
Saturday noon until 10 pm, and
Sunday from noon until 8 pm.
“We offer monthly menu spe-
cials throughout the summer
season,” notes Jeff Schneider,
Food & Beverage Director, who
has over 22 years of experience
in the restaurant industry. “We
also offer half-orders on most of
our menu selections for those
who prefer downsized portions.”
“Michaywe’ Inn the Woods
offers a truly unique dining
experience in a beautiful north-
ern Michigan setting,” Schneider
adds. “We firmly believe that
after visiting us the first time,
guests will return again and
again.”

January 10, 2013 Choice Publications ... The Best Choice! • Page 11
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, McDonald’s, and P.F.
Chang’s).
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.

THURSDAY: Job 33:4-6 New English Translation (NET) 4 The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the
Almighty gives me life. 5 Reply to me, if you can; set your arguments in order before me and take your stand! 6
Look, I am just like you in relation to God; I too have been molded from clay.
FRIDAY: 1 Corinthians 1:18-21 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those
who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, “I will destroy the
wisdom of the wise, And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside.” 20 Where is the wise man? Where is the
scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in
the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the
foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
SATURDAY: 1John 3:4-8 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 4 Nicodemus *said to Him, “How can a man be born
when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” 5 Jesus
answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the king-
dom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not be
amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound
of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
SUNDAY: John 9:35-38 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 35 Jesus heard that they had put him out, and finding
him, He said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” 36 He answered, “Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in
Him?” 37 Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you.” 38 And he
said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped Him.
MONDAY: Acts 2:21-24 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 21 ‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of
the Lord will be saved.’ 22 “Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by
God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you your-
selves know— 23 this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to
a cross by the hands of godless men and put Him to death. 24 But God raised Him up again, putting an end to
the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held [g]in its power.
TUESDAY: Acts 4:10-12 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of
Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—
by this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 He is the stone which was rejected by you, the
builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no
other name under heaven that has been given among men
by which we must be saved.”
WEDNESDAY: Romans 5:6-9 New American Standard Bible
(NASB) 6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time
Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will hardly die for a
righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone
would dare even to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own
love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified
by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God
through Him.

PASTOR’S PERSPECTIVE
Bob
Moody
Joy Fellowship -
Assembly of God
A person could give a host of answers none of which would be suffi-
cient to secure your admission into heaven. The reason they wouldn’t
work is because they would be judged according to God’s perfection.
For instance if my claim was because I took care of the poor it would
fall short of how God would do it. If I claimed my personal righteous-
ness it would fall short of God’s righteousness.
The situation is hopeless as long as we give an answer based upon
us. However, when we call upon the Lord for his mercy the situation
passes from dark to light; from death to life; from defeat to victory.
How does this transformation come to pass?
That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in
your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it
is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your
mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, "Anyone
who trusts in him will never be put to shame." For there is no differ-
ence between Jew and Gentile--the same Lord is Lord of all and richly
blesses all who call on him, for, "Everyone who calls on the name of
the Lord will be saved."
Romans 10:9-13 (New International Version)
Take the time at the beginning of this new year to consider this pas-
sage from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Roman church. Make sure
that when called upon by God to tell why he should let you into heav-
en you are ready with the only answer that will make the grade.
Thoughts on...If God were to say to you, "why should I let
you into my Heaven?", what would you say to Him?
The power of endowment is evident as the
Otsego County Community Foundation
reflects on the amount of grants awarded in
2012. "Over $100,000 in grants was awarded
to local organizations and students pursuing
higher education in 2012." said Dana
Bensinger, Executive Director.
Bensinger notes that the majority of these
grants were from endowed funds, which can
be compared, to a savings account or a retire-
ment savings plan. “You can make donations
to an endowment and the funds are invested
with growth as a goal. From the income,
grants are made and the principal of the gift
always remains intact.”
The Otsego County Community
Foundation originated in 1994 as an affiliate
of the Grand Traverse Regional Community
Foundation. Today it is home to 51 charitable
funds, established by forward thinking local
philanthropists benefiting many different
causes.
"To think that our grantmaking was possi-
ble in 2012 because people invested gifts
ranging from $1 to thousands, as many as
eighteen years ago, paints a pretty clear pic-
ture of endowment concept." stated
Bensinger
Thirteen students received scholarships for
higher education and the following organiza-
tions and programs benefited from grants for
a variety of needs:
- Otsego County Community Christmas
Giving Program
- Gaylord Evangelical Free Church
- Big Ticket Festival
- Gaylord Community Schools
- Vanderbilt Schools
- St Mary Cathedral School
- Big Brothers Big Sisters- J-L Bigs in School
- Children's Bereavement Network- Camp

- Otsego County Sportsplex
- Otsego Memorial Hospital Foundation
- Otsego County Food Pantry
- Gaylord Area Council for the Arts
- Gaylord Athletic Boosters
- Otsego Wildlife Legacy Society
To celebrate this county wide accomplish-
ment the Otsego County Community
Foundation will be having an open house on
Thursday, January 10, from 9:30-10:30 am at
Otsego County Community Foundation
Office located in the lower level of the Fifth
Third Building on Main Street in Gaylord. All
are welcome.
The mission of the Otsego County
Community Foundation is to enhance the
quality of Life by building endowment,
awarding grants and convening leaders. To

Gaylord Council for the Arts
“Northern Stars” Open Mic contest
at Seams Like New in January
January is the month when temperatures
dip, snow begins to pile up and the annual
Hot Reads for Cold Nights winter reading pro-
gram returns to the Otsego County Library.
With the bustle of the holidays behind us,
there is nothing more relaxing than settling
down and enjoying a good book.
Beginning Sunday, January 13th, Otsego
County readers are invited to join the fun.
Persons who register will receive a free
advance copy of a forthcoming book and a
tasty chocolate covered dipping cookie to
enjoy with a steaming hot cup of their favorite
beverage (while supplies last). The program
will run through Saturday, March 9.
To participate, pick up an official entry
form at the main library in Gaylord or
branches in Johannesburg and Vanderbilt.
There are only two requirements:
1) You must be 16 years old or older and
2) The books you read or audiobooks you
listen to must be those checked out or down-
loaded from the library.
Read or listen to four books for a chance to
win hot prizes, such as mugs, booklover’s cal-
endars, book lights and messenger bags.
Prizes will be awarded weekly and everyone
who finishes will be entered into a grand
prize drawing.
“This is the fourth year we’ve offered an
adult reading program and popularity has
grown each year,” says Maureen Derenzy,
Library Director. “We’ve had regular patrons
asking about it since mid-December, so I’m
happy to announce that Hot Reads is back
and better than ever.”
There is no shortage of good reads to bor-
row from the Otsego County Library, with
new books added daily, a well-stocked back-
list of your favorite authors, a diverse selec-
tion of magazines, and another 45 million
items available through MeLCat, the
statewide resource sharing program. A
library card is free to any Otsego County resi-
dent and there is no cost to participate in
library events.
For more information about Hot Reads for
Cold Nights or other services and programs,
persons may contact the Otsego County
Library at 732-5841 or visit the website at
www.otsegocountylibrary.org.
Exposure to a dangerous, odorless, invisible gas –
radon – ranks as the number one in-home hazard for
Americans, according to a recent Harvard University
study. Radon is a naturally-occurring, radioactive gas that
disperses in open air, but can become a serious threat
when trapped in a home or other building. Hazardous
radon levels are detected in one out of 15 American
homes, and radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for
non-smokers.
January is Radon Action Month. The Health
Department of Northwest Michigan offers radon test kits
at a cost of $15 to help families check for and eliminate
this silent killer from their homes. Test kits can be picked
up during regular business hours at Health Department
offices in Bellaire, Charlevoix, Petoskey/Harbor Springs
and Gaylord. A Property Tax ID number is required at the
time of purchase, to help map radon levels in the four-
county Health District. Radon maps can be found at
www.nwhealth.org under Programs and Services >
Environmental Health Services > Radon.
According to Scott Kendzierski, the Health
Department’s Director of Environmental Health Services,
testing is the only way to know if you and your family are
being exposed to dangerous levels of radon.
"Fortunately, testing for radon is easy and inexpen-
sive,” he said. “If you discover that your home does have
a problem, the Health Department can provide free con-
sultation and, if needed, help you find a contractor to
correct the problem."
Kendzierski says radon mitigation systems are readily
available through local contractors and are widely used,
with excellent results that can decrease the presence of
radon in a home by as much as 99 percent. Depending on
the size and type of home, systems can range from a few
hundred dollars up to about $2,500.
“It’s peace of mind to know your home doesn’t have a
radon hazard,” he added. “And if it does, then fixing the
problem now is essential, even if you plan to sell your
home in the future.”

By Deb Hagen-Foley
The New Year's Resolution to lose weight is one of the most
popular. It is appropriate that January is National Healthy
Weight Awareness month. According to the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention, Michigan has the fifth high-
est rate of obesity in the United States at 31.3%. Mississippi,
with nearly 35% of obese residents, ranks number one for the
sixth straight year, followed by Louisiana, West Virginia and
Alabama. Colorado had the lowest percentage of obese resi-
dents, 20.7%. In 2010, about 35.7% of U.S. adults, almost 78
million persons, were obese.
Obesity is defined as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) over
30%. You can get an estimate of your BMI using the tool avail-
able at the CDC website (www.cdc.gov/healthyweight). The
BMI is calculated by dividing weight (in pounds) by height (in
inches). Normal weight for adults is defined by a BMI ranging
from 18.5 to 24.9. BMI of 25.0 to 29.9 is considered overweight
and 30 and above is obese. For an adult 5'9" tall, a BMI of 18.5
to 24.9 translates to a weight of 125 to 168 pounds.
This technique provides an estimate of BMI, but does not
allow for variations by sex or age. Females and older persons
tend to have a higher percentage of body fat than males and
younger persons. In addition, among highly trained athletes,
additional weight could rep-
resent greater muscularity
rather than higher levels of
fat.
A more accurate method
for identifying BMI is electri-
cal impedance. In this proce-
dure, an electrical current is
sent through the body and
the resistance is measured.
Muscle is a better conductor of electricity than fat and the
BMI measurement will also estimate the percentage of weight
attributable to muscle or fat.
Why is it important to maintain a healthy weight?
Obesity contributes significantly to many negative health
outcomes, including increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardio-
vascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and some types of
cancer. Excess weight can lead to high blood pressure, high
cholesterol and increased strain on your joints. Excess body
weight and obesity account for about 10% of U.S. medical
expenses. Then there are the emotional costs of low self-
esteem, depression and guilt.
High levels of overweight and obesity persist despite 45 mil-
lion Americans dieting and spending more than 33 billion
dollars annually on diet and weight loss products. You now
know the incidence of and consequences of obesity.
Next week, I will cover techniques for attaining and main-
taining a healthy body weight.

Oncologist-Hematologist Philomena M. Colucci, D.O. has

As part of a collaboration between Otsego Memorial

“We welcome Dr. Colucci to our medical staff and are excit-
ed that patients will have continued easy access to specialty
care at the hospital,” said Barb Miller, vice president of
Physician Services at Otsego Memorial. “Close to home care is
important during a battle with cancer and we believe patients
will appreciate her expertise and the same great OMH
Oncology and Infusion Center staff they have come to know
and trust.”
Dr. Colucci is board certified in both hematology and
oncology with expertise in cancers of the breast, bladder,
colon, esophagus, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, prostate, and
other areas of the body. She is a graduate of Michigan State
University School of Osteopathic Medicine and performed
her residency at Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin.
Joining Dr. Colucci in practice is Lori Schiller, nurse practi-
tioner, who has an extensive background in the care of cancer
patients. Schiller is oncology certified. She is part of a dedi-
cated, top notch team working to provide the highest level of
care and comfort for patients.
The OMH Oncology and Infusion Center is located at 701 N.

offers ten treatment chairs, two private treatment rooms, an
on-site lab and pharmacy, and an easily accessible patient
