BOYNE FALLS With a


successful tournament run
from both East Jordan and
Boyne Falls, the Charlevoix
County sports fans had their
basketball season extended
for a few weeks as both teams
captured district crowns and
the Red Devils also bringing
home their first regional title
in over 50 years.
This regular season saw
Boyne City, Boyne Falls and
East Jordan put together outstanding campaigns, with the
Ramblers going 18-1 and the
Loggers 17-1, with both
squads posting undefeated
records in the Lake Michigan
and Northern Lakes Conferences, while the Red Devils
finished their regular season
15-4 and a second place finish
in the LMC.
With post season accolades
pouring in for our area athletes, the Charlevoix County
News is proud to announce
the 2013-14 Boys Basketball
All-Area Dream Team.
This seasons Dream
Team has an array of talent,
varying from all-around athletes that can play all five positions, to lightning quick
guards that can get to the rim
with the slightest opening, to
high flyers and perimeter
threats that can knock down a
triple from the moment they
enter the gym.

After going over all the necessary statistical information


and each student-athletes importance to their team and
what those individuals faced
every night on the court, the
selection for regular season
Player of the Year goes to
Boyne Falls sophomore, Marcus Matelski, while postseason Player of the Year goes to
none other than East Jordans
Noah Bacchus.

(#32) MARCuS MAtELSki


(#32) Marcus Matelski in
his third season on the Logger varsity, averaged an area
high, 26 points per game,
while hauling in nine boards,
dishing out three assists and
making three steals per contest. Marcus also shot an
amazing 63 percent from the
field, while knocking down 86
percent of his free throws.
He played more point
guard for us this year which
probably hurt his scoring a
little but made us a better
team, Boyne Falls coach Tim
Smith said. The thing that is
amazing about Marcus is that
he sees junk defense in almost
every game and still puts up
unbelievable numbers while
only playing a little more
than half the game in many
instances. He does this because he really knows how to
play the game without the
ball. He is a tremendous rebounder and can score every

possible way a player can


score, and he is a tremendous
defensive player who has the
versatility to defend all five
positions.
Matelski was recently selected to the AP Class D AllState team.
Being selected to the allstate team as a sophomore is a
great accomplishment, coach
Smith noted. But the neat
thing about Marcus that he is
the first to tell you that all of
his accolades are really team
awards. He understands that
without team success he probably doesnt get the recognition he has earned.

(#10) Noah Bacchus enjoyed
an outstanding regular season where he averaged 19
points per game, was plus 26
in the assist to turnover ratio
(85 assist-59 turnovers), made
34 steals and led the team in
rebounding with 105. The 5-9
guard also shot 42 percent
from the floor and 83 percent
from the free throw line. He
finished with a game-high 38
points in a win over Kalkaska
earlier in the year.
In my opinion, the best
guard in Northern Michigan, East Jordan coach Darrin Weber said.

biggest team contributions would come during


the Red Devils march to the Class C quarterfinals. It was during the tournament where Mr.
Big Shot would take over and lead his team,
averaging 20.2 points per game, including game
winning/buzzer beating shots against
Charlevoix and Beaverton, both coming in
overtime. He had game-highs of 28 and 27
points in those contests.
Noah carried us through the tournament,
coach Weber added. Throughout the course of
the season, he learned to trust his teammates,
but when the games on the line, we want the
ball in his hands.
Joining Marcus and Noah on the 2014 AllArea Dream Team by alphabetical team
order are; Brendan Matelski and Andrew
Stevens of Boyne Falls; Cole Butler, Ryan Carson, Bradley Fouchia, Corey Redman and
Maceo Vroman of Boyne City; Charlevoix is
represented by Nate Moon, Justin Pearl and
Austin Putman; Donny Cutler and Jordan
Weber of East Jordan and Ellsworth Diamond
McPherson and Nate Veldboom.

Boyne Falls

Andrew Stevens

Boyne Falls

Cole Butler

Boyne City

A four-year starter for the Loggers, averaged


12 points per game, while grabbing five rebounds, making three steals and handing out
two assists per contest.
Brendans scoring was down this year, but
his defense was outstanding, coach Smith
said. He guarded all five positions and was exceptional in doing so, he brought a toughness
to our team and was our leader.
Brendan compiled a 75-12 record during his
career, winning three conference titles and a
district title. His toughness showed during the
Loggers regional tournament run as he played
with a broken wrist.

(#3) ANDREW StEVENS, JuNioR.


Stevens, in his second year on the varsity,
ran the point for the Loggers and averaged
seven points, five assists and three rebounds
from his guard position. He connected on 40
percent of his three point shots, while knocking down 72 percent of his free throws.
Andrew is like a coach on the floor, coach
Smith noted. He is as intelligent as any player
I have ever coached. He finished with a 3 to 1
assist to turnover ratio and turned himself
into a good three point shooter.
He is a championship player who make
great decisions and never falters in the big moments as he proved in district final when he
made four straight three point shots in third
quarter.

The sharpshooting wingman, seemed to get


the Rambler offense kickstarted many times in
games during the season, whether it be taking
it too the hoop for an easy two or knocking
down a triple.
Cole averaged 10 points per game and was
Boynes best spot up shooter according to
coach Nick Redman.

(#10) RyAN CARSoN, SENioR.


Whether it was a triple from downtown or a
high-flying slam dunk, Ryan often times got
the Rambler crowd jumping out of their seats
with his athletic play.
Carson led Boyne City with 13.5 points per
game and 6.5 rebounds, while shooting 59 percent from the floor and 72 percent from the
charity stripe. He poured in a season-high 30
points in an overtime victory over TC St. Francis in late January.
He will take his skills to the next level in the
fall as a member of the Lake Superior State
men;s basketball team.

Bradley ran the point for the Ramblers and


used his quickness and ball handling skills to

roam around the perimeter and take the open
three when the opportunity presented itself.
Bradley finished the season averaging 9.5
points and 2.5 steals per game.

from beyond the arch. He put together a huge


game against Joburg in the district semifinals,
scoring 27 points on seven shots and shooting
12-of-12 from the charity stripe, while, grabbing nine boards and dishing out four assists.

(#54) MACEo VRoMAN, JuNioR.


The 5-9 guard was the Ramblers best on ball
defender and was in charge of disrupting the
opponents ability to get into their offensive
flow.
He averaged eight points per game for
Boyne, picking up a career high of 19 against
Class D ranked Cedarville in the Ramblers regular season finale.
Each member of our team sacrificed their
own individual stats this year for team success, Boyne City coach Nick Redman said. It
wasnt easy, but once they saw how well balanced scoring was working, we think they got
the idea.

Austin filled some big shoes this season, as
he stepped in for the injured Zach Hankins and
did not disappoint.
Putman led Charlevoix with 11.7 points and
eight rebounds per game. His physical style of
play would make things difficult for opponents.

Justin was in charge of running the show
for the Rayders this season. He averaged 4.5
points and six assists per game from his point
guard position.

East Jordan
(#12) DoNNy CutLER, SoPhoMoRE.
The cat-like quickness of Cutler, created
nightmares for opponents on both sides of the
ball. Donny would often times get to the rim
without hesitation, while creating havoc for
the opponents best ball handler.
Donny seemed to pick up his play as the
tournament went along, handling pressure situations as if they was nothing on the line at
all. He finished the season averaging eight
points per game, he led the Red Devils with 43
steals and was second on team with 60 assists.
Donny was the best defender on the team,
Red Devils coach Darrin Weber said. He really improved as the year went on.

(#32) JoRDAN WEBER, SoPhoMoRE.


Jordan finished second on the Red Devils in
scoring this season with a 15 per game average,
while shooting 80 percent from the free throw
line.
Jordan had a game-high of 36 against St.
Ignace late in the season, connecting on eight
triples in the contest.
He is a great perimeter shooter, making 54
threes this season, coach Weber added.

Ellsworth
DiAMoND MCPhERSoN, SENioR.
Diamond finished second on the Lancers in
scoring this season with a 7.6 average, while
also hauling in 3.8 rebounds and dishing out
2.2 assists from his guard position.
Diamond also shot 37 percent from the floor
and 74 percent from the charity stripe. He had
a season-high 23 points against Alba late in the
season.

NAtE VELDBooM, SENioR.


Nate led Ellsworth with 13.3 points per game
this year, while grabbing 7.8 rebounds and
making 2.4 steals per contest.
Nate also shot 59 percent from the floor and
had a season-high 20 points against both Alba
and Alanson during the season.

Coach of the Year - Regular season


Coach of the Year honors go to Boyne Citys
Nick Redman. Coach Redman helped lead the
Ramblers to a 20-2 record, including an 18-1
regular season which saw Boyne go 14-0 in the
Lake Michigan Conference, winning their first
conference title in 16 years.
Proud of how the guys handled being
ranked in the top 5 in the state all year, coach
Redman said. To play a tough schedule and
get everybodys best shot every night and still
win 20 games and go undefeated in our conference is something everyone should be proud
of.
Really happy with how our program has developed over the past three years, winning 48
games, a district and conference championship, he added. Thanks to all the players
for being focused and working hard, all the
coaches from our youth programs on up and
all the support from our community and ad-

ministration. It has been fun to be part
of.
The Ramblers will say goodbye to
graduating seniors, four year veteran
Ryan Carson along with Bradley
Fouchia.

Health of Northern
Michigan Hospitals

McLaren Northern Michigan


By Norma Jean Babcock

To complete our series on the


Health of Northern Michigan Hospitals we spoke with McLaren
Northern Michigan in Petoskey to
find out what challenges and successes they have met with in light
of recent government mandated
health care changes.
McLaren Northern Michigan
covers the eastern Upper Peninsula
and a large portion of northern
Michigan. The hospital offers acute
Emergency Department services
and has specialists available for
this care around the clock which
differs from various other local hospitals and makes it necessary for
McLaren to serve 10 different counties when it comes to emergent
care.
The hospital is the largest facility
in the area which houses 202 beds
total. The hospital also focuses on
outreach specialty care and provides patient clinics in 20 communities in the region. Due to its size
and the amount of people McLaren
cares for, the hospital has faced
challenges in light of the Affordable Care Act.
We spoke with Patricia Sewarch,
the Director of Strategic Sale and
Business Development for McLaren
Northern Michigan who shared

with us the problems and triumphs


that the hospital has faced. She explained that the hospital has dealt
with continual changes in government regulations and the reduced
reimbursements from insurers recently. In addition they have struggled with bad debt and increased
charity care.
To meet these challenges,
McLaren Northern Michigan must
carefully reduce and control costs
while focusing on providing awardwinning care, said Sewarch.
In fact, part of the recent decision to partner with McLaren
Health Care in 2012 was actually
due to the impending changes that
the hospital saw coming in the future. The hope is to be part of a
larger system that may help offset
high costs while maintaining a
strong hospital for the northern
Michigan area.
Our decision to become an affiliate of McLaren Health Care in 2012
was based on our understanding of
looming market changesthis affiliation has enabled us to continue to
build our specialty strengths in
northern Michigan while reducing
operational costs, explained Sewarch.
This partnership has indeed
made it possible for McLaren to
focus on its specialty services,

which is proved by the recent national recognition given to the hospital for its transcatheter aortic
valve replacement program by the
Michigan Heart and Vascular Specialists in 2013. The success rates
for the program are higher than the
national average, and thoracic surgeons have earned Three-Star
recognition in both 2012 and 2013.
This recognition places those surgeons in the top 10-15% of thoracic
surgeons nationwide and is the
highest level of recognition by the
Society of Thoracic Surgeons for
bypass surgery.
The hospital hopes that by focusing their attention on extraordinary specialty patient care the
challenges created by the Affordable Care Act will be weathered
gracefully, and that although recent
challenges have led to cutbacks in
staff, they will do their utmost to
keep the medical care top quality in
future years.
Throughout our series we have
focused on how our area hospitals
are doing in light of the issues created by the Affordable Care Act,
overall each hospital has faced
their share of struggles but is doing
their utmost to maintain impeccable care and reduce costs to focus
on patients and not finances.

New healthcare plan in Michigan


By Jessica Boyce

There has been a lot of talk


lately about Obamacare and all of
the controversies surrounding this
topic, but something you may not
have heard about is the new
Healthy Michigan Plan. This is a
plan that has health care benefits
available to individuals at a low
cost.
Even if you have heard about
this new plan that became available April 1st, you may want to
know a little more about it before
you decide if its right for you.
A basic question when it comes
to a health care plan is whether or
not you qualify for it. For the
Healthy Michigan Plan you have to
be between the ages of 19 and 64,
have income at or below 133% of
the federal poverty level (16,000 for
a single person or 33,000 for a family of 4), dont qualify for or are not
enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid,
are not pregnant at the time of application, and are a resident of
Michigan.
Another common question is
what the plan actually covers. The
Healthy Michigan Plan covers the
federal healthcare law essential

benefits as well as other services


and benefits. Some of these benefits include emergency services,
hospitalization, prescription drugs,
preventive and wellness services,
and pediatric services for 19 and 20
year olds. Other medically necessary services as appropriate are
also covered. For a full list of what
is covered under this plan, visit
www.michigan.gov/healthymiplan
and check out the Healthy Michigan Plan Handbook.
The actual monthly fee that you
pay for this healthcare plan is evaluated and determined based on the
services that you receive in the
first six months that you have the
plan. The individuals that have an
annual income between 100% and
133% of the federal poverty level
are required to contribute 2% of
their annual income for cost sharing purposes. A list of co-pays associated with the plan is also
available in the Healthy Michigan

Plan Handbook.
If this healthcare plan is something that you want to apply for,
you can do so online (www.michigan.gov/mibridges), over the
phone (855-789-5610), or in person at
a Department of Human Services
office.
After you have enrolled in the
Healthy Michigan Plan, you need
to do two things: complete the
Healthy Michigan Plan Health
Risk Assessment which can be
mailed to you or found at michigan.gov/healthymiplan under the
After Enrollment tab, and schedule a check-up with your doctor.
You will want to take the assessment form with you to this doctors
visit because your doctor will sign
the form for you. If you need help
completing the form, you can call
the Beneficiary Help Line at 1-800642-3195.
This plan could be good news for
people who want healthcare but
cant afford anything else. If you
want to look into the Healthy
Michigan Plan for yourself and see
if it is right for you, visit michigan.gov/healthymiplan and take a
look at all of the details.

KNOCK
DOWN
CANCER
TODAY
By MiChAEL RoiZEN, M.D.,
AND MEhMEt oZ, M.D.

Cancer rates around the


world will skyrocket 57 percent in the next 20 years, says
a sobering new report from
the World Health Organization. What you may not
know: In North America, despite amazing advances in
treating cancers, the number
of cases will increase dramatically -- up 52 percent in
Mexico, 55 percent in the
U.S., and 66 percent in
Canada! But this doesn't have
to happen.
One-third of common
cancers can be prevented by
adopting an improved nutrition and weight-loss plan, getting regular physical activity,
managing stress and avoiding tobacco -- everything we
outline in "YOU: On a Diet."
If everyone followed those
recommendations it would
eliminate 374,000 new cases
of cancer annually, including
38 percent of breast cancers,
11 percent of prostate cancers, 50 percent of colon cancers, 36 percent of lung
cancers and 24 percent of
kidney cancers. And, according to researchers from the
University of Michigan and
the Fred Hutchinson Cancer
Research Center in Seattle,
each of these healthy steps
can reduce your risk of dying
from cancer by 10 percent; do
them all, and your risk plummets 61 percent.
In many corners of the
world folks can't get the
screening tests for colon,
prostate or breast cancer that
catch precancerous growths
and cancers in their earliest,
most treatable stages. But
here, in North America,
these screens are more readily available. And you're getting them regularly, right?
We bet you're also smart
enough to follow these powerful cancer-dodging steps:
Stop smoking. Tobacco is
the world's leading cause of
cancer deaths. So if you've
tried to quit before, try again.
Smokers try, on average,
eight to 10 times before they
quit for good. (Go to sharecare.com for help.)
Move, move, move. Get 30
minutes of activity minimum daily. We suggest walking. Build up to 10,000 steps a
day and add in 30 minutes of
weights two to three times a
week. Then ease into cardio.
You'll reduce your cancer
risk by boosting immunity
and stopping your body's
overproduction of cancer-fu-

eling compounds like insulin,


prostaglandins and some hormones.
Load up on produce; and
choose 100 percent whole
grains. Fruit, veggies and
grain are loaded with fiber
that boosts immunity and
helps keep your gut bacteria
in a cancer-fighting mood.
Plus, they deliver phytochemicals that cool inflammation
and protect your DNA. Eat
nine servings of produce,
and three to four of whole
grains daily, and you'll get
cancer-fighters like indoles
from broccoli and cabbage,
lutein in tomatoes (cooked
tomatoes are best), anthocyanins in blueberries and
raspberries, and lignans and
phenolics in grains.
Go easy on red meat, eliminate processed meat and
moderate your alcohol consumption. A red-meat-heavy
diet raises colon cancer risk
28 percent and your risk for
many other cancers almost
as much. Processed meats
may be even unhealthier. If
you drink alcohol, stick with
one drink or less per day for
women, two or less for men;
excess alcohol can raise risk
for cancers of the colon, liver,
breast and mouth.
Give these food felons the
heave-ho. Added sugars and
syrups and refined flours increase inflammation and cancer-feeding glucose levels,
and they push cancer-fighters like fresh fruit, veggies
and whole grains off your
plate.
Whittle your middle. Carrying extra pounds, especially at your waist,
increases odds for cancers of
the breast, colon, kidneys,
esophagus, pancreas and gallbladder. Hormones released
from fat cells encourage development of tumors and
stimulate their growth, while
bodywide inflammation fuels
cancer development. The best
belly-busting foods? Nonfried fish rich in omega-3 and
omega-7 fatty acids, fiber-rich
100 percent whole grains and
veggies, and walnuts, almonds and avocados.
Ask your doc about lowdose aspirin. Meta-studies
show that daily low-dose aspirin cuts risk for colon,
lung, pancreatic, ovarian and
eight other cancers by 20 percent to 40 percent. Aspirin
also cuts the risk that a cancer will spread by 35 percent.
Ask your doc if aspirin is
right for you (it can be a risk
for digestive bleeding). We
take 80 milligrams twice a
day, with a half-glass of
warm water before and after
to reduce negative side effects.

Here are some of the most common


reasons buyers are turned off by a
particular house, so make sure these
are addressed before lopping thousands of dollars off the asking price:
Put on a good show
This is the second biggest reason a
home isnt selling. Buyers often talk
of connecting to a house. This is
not likely to happen if your house is
not company-coming-over clean and
ready to show like a model. This goes
for the outside as well. If you dont

want to put the effort into doing this,


then youd better adjust your price to
compensate because buyers will only
consider your house because its a
good deal, not because it speaks to
them.
Cant buy what they cant see
If you make it difficult for people to
see your property, then chances of a
sale at the price you want drops considerably. Selling can be a nuisance,
but its a necessary one. If you dont
allow a lockbox or require appointment-only showings, you are the culprit to the house not selling.

Out of your hands


Its not always the sellers fault that
a house isnt selling. Sometimes the
market changes and buyers disappear. Maybe a new home development
has opened nearby and they are
stealing the customers. Or maybe
youve received bad advice from your
agent. Any of these can affect
whether your house sells, which
means you need to consider the reasons and make the necessary adjustments.
