Police warn of scammers


targeting the area
REED CITY Reed City Police
Department officials are cautioning residents about a new scam
attempt. Individuals claiming
to be from Publishers Clearing
House call or mail a potential
victim a fraudulent check from
Healthcare Partners IPA out of
New York to be used for attorney
fees and insurance.
The Reed City Police have been
in contact with both Publishers
Clearing House and Healthcare
Partners IPA. A Publishers
Clearing House spokesman said
the organization does not award
any large prizes by phone or
mail or ask for any money to be
sent to the company. Healthcare
Partners IPA said the checks are
fraudulent and whoever cashes
them would be responsible for repaying the money to the bank.
Police Department personnel
say that anyone who receives
such a phone call should hang up
immediately and make certain to
not give out any personal or bank
information. Neither should a
person send anyone any money
as a result of the call.
Anyone who receives a check
from this Healthcare Partners
and believes it to be valid should
verify it by calling the company
or checking with the bank before
cashing it. These fraudulent
checks are being printed on
check paper with a watermarks
and security features so they appear authentic.

explains why Relay for Life
fundraising isnt limited to a

encourage year-round activity.
A number of less-publicized
activities take place throughout
the year.
Relay leaders call on businesses to make donations, too. Signs

Event sponsors are businesses,

who donated at least $100 for

dividend paid by investments in

What it it?

No, not a doughnut


cutter; yes, it is from the
kitchen drawer.
This tool is for a single
purpose: de-seeding a
mango fruit.
The oval shaped mango
(globally known as the
King of the Fruits) has
a single prominent large
oval shaped seed. This
cutter has a relatively dull
metal edge, but when one
aligns the fruit standing on
its edge with the cutter, the
gentle downward pushing
action, not unlike an apple
slicer, does the trick of removing the pit or stone.
The mango is sweet and
abundantly juicy when
ripe. It rivals the ripest of
peaches.
The National Mango
Board (and yes, we have
one) is proud to declare
that devouring a single
mango will give you 12 percent of the USDA recommendation for daily fiber,
plus 100 percent of your
vitamin C, and 35 percent
of your days vitamin A.
Add to the mangos benefits high mineral content, flavonoids, and a potent dose of anti-oxidants
which have been linked
to benefits in preventing
breast and colon cancers.
Whats more, nutritionists tout the mango for its
potassium paired with

a minimum amount of
sodium (blood pressure
friendly fruit) and its B vitamin content.
Calories? An avocado averages 289. A mango averages 145. A cup of blueberries is 83 calories; a cup of
fresh mango is 107.
The trick to enjoying a
mango is to wait until it
softens; if you are fortunate enough to snowbird
near a mango grove, the
fruit, which tree-ripens to
the point of having black
spots, is the most decadent.
Mango trees can live to 300
years of age having easily
grown to 90 feet tall while
still in their youth.
Mango lore has long associated the fruit with fertility and prosperity and as
a consequence is often part
of beloved folksong lyrics in the Indian city of
Mumbai (most of us grew

up calling it Bombay), one


particular mango-song is
a must-have on the playlist at almost all wedding
receptions.
What about its family
tree, you ask? The mango
is actually a distant relative to both the cashew and
pistachio nuts. Florida,
Hawaii and California are
primary growing states in
the USA, with Florida far
and away the leader.
Ironically, Hawaiian
grown mangos have been
banned from the mainland
due to fruit fly infestation
concerns leaving fans of
the fruit to rely heavily on
imports.
Worldwide, India is the
primary producer generating 63 percent of all
mangos globally.
Care to try and name
the other top producers?
Mexico, Pakistan, China,

ago, of course, are many of


the villages homes. They
are stately affairs, structures built when lumber
was cheap and plentiful.
The village traces its
roots in fact, to the lumber
era. Famed lumberman
Delos Abiel Blodgett canoed up the Muskegon
during the summer of 1850
and camped at the mouth
of the Hersey. He liked
what he saw there. In the
spring of 1851, he returned
to the spot. He cleared
some land, planted some
potatoes, and harvested
what historians say was
the first crop in Osceola
County. In 1858, he buildt a
sawmill there.
The sawmill and the
areas proximity to the
Muskegon River undoubtedly played a part in
Herseys present day look.
The Muskegon was conveniently located for floating
logs to market. The areas
sawmills used some of the
fallen timber themselves.
By 1885, Blodgett knew
the areas lumbering days
were numbered. He began acquiring land in the
southern states to continue
his logging business. Soon
farming replaced logging
as the leading business.
The absence of trees
and the presence of farms
may be what contribute to
much of the areas charm
today. With the trees gone,
the rolling hills are visible.
Picturesque barns, green

hayfields and pastures containing herds of Holsteins


dominate the landscape.
Old farmhouses stand
sentry near the barns. Few
cars travel the roads. A
person is as likely to see a
woodchuck as he is a Volkswagen Rabbit.
Perhaps the dearth of
traffic is because Hersey
is one of those places you
cant get to. Highways
passed the village by. U.S.
131 is half a dozen miles to
the west. U.S. 10 is a mile or
so to the north. A person
cant go through Hersey
without taking a detour. No
fast-food restaurants clut-

ter up the landscape with


glitzy signs. The villages
lone gas station is a quiet,
unpretentious-looking
establishment. It does little
to upset the quietness of
the street. The farm market, when it is open, might
draw as many shoppers as
the gas station does.
Besides the gas station
at the north end of town, a
person can find the River
Junction Restaurant, the
Hersey Roller Mills Store
and its upstairs neighbor,
The Crafters of the Loft.
Little else is there. The village residents might just
like things that way.

An owl cannily surveying the fairgrounds below
him. A bear standing
upright and holding a

and looking as if he just
stepped out of the pages of

All those beings and

greet visitors to the Osceola County Fairgrounds in

out nearly every one of the

such creations for 18 years.

Chainsaw carver Dayle Lewis froze these beavers in the act of


gnawing down a tree. The chainsaw sculpture is part of a wood
menagerie the carver has left at the Osceola County Fairgrounds.
Lewis answers in a deep,
drawling voice. But he does
admit to having a gift for
looking at something and
duplicating it. Plus, he began woodcarving a couple
of years before he began
chainsaw carving. The
woodcarving gave him the
experience to launch into
chainsaw carving.
If he gives anything else
the credit for his success, it
would be his experience in
industry.
The former industrial
engineer said his work required him to look for creative solutions to problems
and to think outside the
box. When he lost his job in
2002, he picked up a chainsaw and never looked back.
Today, his carvings provide
his income.
A couple of hurricanes
figure prominently in
his journey to chainsaw
carving stardom. After
Hurricane Katrina aimed
its savage blow at the Gulf
Coast in 2005, a New Orleans resident had an idea.
She realized that all the
downed trees would make
great material for carvers.

She created a non-profit


organization and invited
chainsaw carvers to the
area to create and sell carvings for funding relief efforts. Lewis answered her
call. He did the same thing
when Hurricane Ike struck
the Galveston area three
years later and leveled
40,000-50,000 trees. As his
sculptures were scattered
throughout the region,
Lewis became something
of a legend in the area,
and his charity work led to
some for-profit business.
Naturally anyone who
has become as skilled as
Lewis has picked up some
tricks along the way. If an
artist is only as good as the
canvas on which he paints,
a chainsaw carver is only
as good as the blocks of
wood he uses. Lewis likes
catalpa wood. Nobody
wants it, he said. But the
trees unpopularity as a
shade tree just makes the
wood available; it doesnt
make it a good canvas.
Lewis likes to work with
catalpa wood because it is

easy to work. He likes red
cedar for its contrasts.
Lewis is quick to give
safety tips, too. A chainsaw is a dangerous tool,
he said. You cant be
afraid of it, but you have to
respect it. He wears steeltoed shoes, Kevlar chaps
and eye and ear protection
when he works.
When Lewis sees a piece
of wood, usually a concept
pops into his head. Often
the concept involves implied movement. One of
the lessons Lewis picked
up from the competitions

he has entered is that a


carving should be in action.
Lewis has been coming
to the Osceola County
Fairgrounds to attend the
woodcarvers workshops
held there each year for
17 years. At some point,
he started leaving carvings behind. Then fair
officials started asking
him to create pieces for the
fairgrounds animal barns.
Now the property is a regular showcase for his work.
His greatest claim to
fame, though, may lie in

the work he did in the


hurricane-ravaged areas
along the Gulf coast. To
learn more about the man
and the work he did there,
a person can pick up the
book: Galvestons Tree
Carvings. It was written
by Joseph R. Pellerin and
published by Arcadia
Publishing. Lewis also
has a website, www.chainsawsculptors.com. To get
a better idea about the texture of the man, though, a
person might want to visit
the wood menagerie he left
behind at the fairgrounds.

County officials
conducting virtual

REED CITY Through
June 26, Osceola County
Officials will conduct a
virtual exercise designed
to test critical capabilities
that the jurisdiction would
need during a disaster,
Mark Watkins, the countys director of emergency
management, said.
Officials have dubbed the
exercise Northern Readiness. It is intended to be
an independent activity
branching out from other
exercises being conducted
by other agencies around
the state.
The activity is a virtual
exercise with no actual
physical movement of
personnel or emergency
equipment, Watkins said.
All exercise activities are
restricted to radio communications, survey questions or meetings.
NIXLE is a company that
offers notification services
to various government
agencies. The company
was founded in 2007. NIXLE allows police and fire
departments to send alerts

emergency officials will be
testing the NIXLE system.
Officials plan to test their
ability to keep the public
informed during emergencies. Throughout the week
of the exercise, Osceola
County emergency management officials have
been posting daily updates
to a NIXLE message titled
Northern Readiness Exercise. Posting the information allows all citizens
an opportunity to utilize
Nixle for community updates.
During the exercise, only
email, Web, and social media updates will be sent.
We hope that this opportunity will further promote citizen preparedness
and demonstrate NIXLEs
capability to keep the public informed during emergency events. Please share
the messages with friends,
family, or other associates
as to increase their awareness of this system, Watkins said.

Stepping Up Dance Studio held a tap-emphasis summer camp June 15-19. During the week, students worked on a variety of skills including elements of ballet and tap dancing.

step-up their
dancing skills

About a dozen students attended the first Steppin


Up Dance Studio day camp session June 15-19. The
camp had a tap dance focus, but the students also
worked on ballet because ballet skills are important to
other dance styles, Steppin Up owner Carly Weinburg
said.
The studio will sponsor two other dance camps this
summer. A camp with a jazz focus will be held July 2024 and one with a lyrical modern theme will be held
Aug. 10-14. The July and August camps will both have
a ballet core during the morning sessions. The camp
days last from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost of a camp is
$100.
For more information, call (231) 768-3235.
