What WAS it?


Now that the weather
has changed, mosquitos
are out and we are craving open windows and
screened porches.
For the windows and
doors in our homes with
screens that keep insects
out, there can be misery
the moment the screen
becomes damaged. When
a hole is created or the perimeter pushed out of the
frame, those bugs with the
voracious appetite rush to
sneak in.
If the screen itself isnt
patchable and instead requires replacement this
is the tool. The wheels at
either end are designed
to guide a sheet of screen
snuggly into the wooden
(or metal) groove of the
windows frame. New
screen, no more insects,
happy family.
We have the Civil War to
credit with the invention
of screened windows.
When sales of metal
sieves to the Confederate
states plummeted (the

manufacturer being based


squarely in the north in
the state of Connecticut),
the University of Virginia
points out that one of their
employees came up with
the revenue-generating
idea of painting their wire
cloth to retard rust which,
in turn, made it marketable as window screens.
Unlike our contemporary fixation on keeping
out mosquitos, in earlier
eras, the priority was to
keep disease carrying flies
from coming into ones
home. Ultimately it was
such an improvement on
the common practice of
simply using cheesecloth,
that the firm became a
major manufacturer of
screened doors and windows.
In the 1800s, even homes
built of sod were known to
use screened doors.

65th Class Reunion for Evart High School Class of 1951

Taking out the trash


in the old times
By Shanna Avery
Special to the Weekly Voice

Most households have a


trash service that comes
around every week to take
away the unwanted clutter and get it out of mind
and sight. In the old days,
the dynamics pertaining
to trash was largely different.
One large difference between modern trash and
old trash is the trash itself.
In the old days, you did
not have all the plastics,
and styrofoam that do not
decompose.
A lot of the stock came
in wooden barrels, crates,
or paper packaging, which
would eventually rot
and would easily burn.
Items often came in cloth
and canvas sacks, which
could be easily reused
or disposed of. Tin, and
especially glass, were also
very common items for
the trash.
The old saying goes,
One mans trash is another mans treasure.
If a person lives on an
old homestead, or an old
house in town, old trash
may wash up, or become
uncovered.
Years ago, it was very
common for people to
bury trash in their yards.
Items like old dishes, glass
bottles, and building materials such as old square
nails, are some familiar
items people recover.
It is quite a sensation
when some of these old
treasures are touched
by human hands for the
first time in decades being
they were so well preserved in the dirt. A metal
detector can find traces of
these remnants, and sometimes may even uncover a
coin that predates modern
history.
Local community
dumps go back further in
the area than one might
imagine. As early as 1883,
a dump was mentioned in
the Nirvana column of the
April 20, 1883 issue of the
Reed City Clarion, Amos
Bouson has moved into
his new house which he
has built on the north side
of the dump.
The deed to the old
Chase area dumpsite dates
back to 1910. The township
owned this property more
than 100 years, but discontinued as a dump by the
early 70s. It was located
a mile north of Chase on
the corner of Frank Smith
Road and 48th street.
One time a person found
an old bottle still intact
from 1877, labeled slate
eraser.
Also in the old days, the
newspapers were saved

and put to practical use as


insulation between walls
and would also be used
to stuff door and window
casings to keep out drafts.
If items could be reused, they were. Even old
lumber found its second
worth, as indicated in a
1940 article from the Lake
County Star, One of
Baldwins oldest houses,
the Holford House, near
the Star office is being
torn down by Charlie
Johnson, who purchased
the salvage lumber from
Elgar W. Bradford, who
recently purchased the
property. The property
was purchased by C. K.
Radcliffe, then publisher
of the Star, in 1885 and
five years later he sold it
to Laban Carpenter. Ed
Holford, had erected his
barn on the adjoining lots
bought the house in 1907
and lived there until his
death, and after his wifes
death it was sold to George
F. Duffing. More than 55
years old, it contained
some of the real lumber
of the early days when
pine board with knots in
them were a dime a dozen
and any board under 18
feet was a cull. The bill
stuff and sheathing is still
in fine condition.
Trends as far as trash
goes, in early America,
indicate that household
wastes were burned or
dumped into the streets,
alleys and waterways.
By the mid-1700s, it became more common for
households to dig pits to
dispose of their garbage
rather than throwing it
into the streets or alleys.
The government didnt
take an active role in
developing waste management systems. Benjamin
Franklin and his neighbors were unsuccessful
in petitioning the Pennsylvania Assembly to
stop waste dumping and
to remove tanneries from
the commercial district in
Pennsylvania. Franklin
also established the first
street cleaning service in
Pennsylvania in 1757.
Even as late as the Civil
War era, pigs, goats and
dogs were given clean
up duty on the streets,
being allowed to freely
roam. In Charleston,
West Virginia, it went to
the extreme in an 1834
ordinance-prohibiting vulture hunting for the mere
fact that they ate the citys
garbage.
By the early 1800s, towns
began to work together
ordinances to deal with
blight and garbage on the
streets and properties.
By the mid-1800s, more
studies began to correlate

unsanitary conditions of
trash to human illness,
alerting this issue to public attention, action, and
more effort to issue health
codes in towns and cities.
There were no drastic
changes to waste management well into the early
20th century, but increasing urbanization, expanding industry, and people
becoming more consumeroriented, led to trash becoming increasingly overwhelming for local governments and residents to
deal with. This demanded
more solutions.
By the late 20s, transfer
stations came more into
use to transport wastes,
and use of large vehicles,
barges and railroads, were
used to transport wastes
from transfer stations to
the disposal sites.
Local dump sites were
often located near rivers
and streams, compromising water supplies and created extremely unsanitary
conditions.
By 1929, the federal government issued restrictions by recommending
that dumps not be located
near riverbanks.
In the early 30s, more
government issues prohibited practices such as disposing wastes at sea, such
being the case in a 1934
ruling for New York City.
California laws also prohibited garbage disposal
within 20 miles of shore.
The first modern landfill
placed at Fresno, California in 1934 and inspired
by British design, layered
waste with either soil or
other material, instead of
open dumping. This practice gained momentum
and slowly spread across
the nation in the 30s and
40s.
By 1965, the federal
government formed the
Solid Waste Disposal Act
(SWDA). This effort assisted state and local governments with financial and
technical support of managing wastes, and promoting guidelines for waste
collection, transportation
recovery and disposal.
By 1970, Congress
passed the Resource
Recovery Act, to shift
more towards recycling,
resource recovery, and
conversion of waste to
energy, and to deal with
hazardous waste. The
Environmental Protection
Agency came into being.
Over the past 100 years,
the simple days of burying discarded items in the
back yard, snowballed into a complex and scientific
system suited to answer
the demands of a growing
and advancing society.

Evart third-graders ziplining at SpringHill Camp in Evart.

Evart students zip through the final days of school


By Laureen Horan
Weekly Voice

EVART Evart elementary students celebrated


the end of the school year
in the sunshine last week.
For the last eight years,
Evart students between
kindergarten to fourth
grade have spent their last
day of the school year at
SpringHill Camps in Evart.
Its only a five minute
bus ride for us. The kids
get to have a full field day,
said Kelli Elder, paraprofessional at Evart Elementary School.
Students partake in activities such as ziplining,
bungee trampolines, field
games, swimming, water
slides and more. The best
part about the event is that
its completely free for the
students.
Our Parents for Kids
(PFK) group holds fundraising events for this all
year, said Elder. They
raise enough money so
that kids dont have to pay
for anything here.
Fundraisers are held by
PFK for this event nearly
every month, said Engler.
We are always looking
for help and volunteers or
donations, Engler said.
This is something special
we do for them each year,
many kids wouldnt get the
opportunity to come here
otherwise.

Enjoy dairy
for good
health

To some people,
dairys reputation for
contributing to high
cholesterol and weight
gain is a misconception
thats hard to let go of.
But dairys detractors
should know the
right dairy products
enjoyed in moderation
can actually be good
for your health for a
variety of reasons.
Consuming
dairy
products as part of
a nutrient-rich diet
is
important
for
individuals of all ages.
Dairy products have
many nutrients and
vitamins essential to
good health. Calcium,
protein, phosphorus,
potassium,
and
supplemented
vitamins A and D are
all nutrients the body
needs. Calcium, for
example, is necessary
to build and maintain
strong bones.
Osteoporosis,
a
condition
wherein
the bones weaken and
are more susceptible
to injury, can affect
anyone, but it is
particularly common
among women age
50 and older. The
National Institutes of
Health say as many
as half of all women
and a quarter of men
older than 50 will
break a bone due
to osteoporosis. To
keep bones strong,
health
professionals
recommend eating a
diet rich in calcium
and vitamin D both
of which are found in
dairy products.
Eating low-fat dairy
products can reduce
a persons risk of
developing
cancer.
Studies have shown
that populations that
eat a high amount of
calcium-rich
foods
have a lower incidence
of colorectal cancer.

health authority Dr.
Sears, calcium controls
