‘Annie Get Your Gun’ is all about historical characters
MANISTEE -- West Shore Community College and Manistee Civic Players are teaming up again to produce another blockbuster musical--”Annie Get Your Gun.” The musical is being presented at the historic Ramsdell Theatre in Manistee June 25 and 26; July 1 and 2, at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, July 3, at 2 p.m. Director Rick Plummer says that “Annie Get Your Gun,” like one of WSCC’s and MCP’s more recent popular co-productions, “The Sound of Music,” is also based on real-life figures. The real-life Von Trapp family are dramatized in the popular Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, and the “Annie” from the title of this musical refers to Annie Oakley, the iconic American sharpshooter, who, along with her husband, fellow marksman Frank Butler, were two of the featured acts in Buffalo Bill Cody‘s “Wild West Show. “I’ve always been a history buff,” Plummer says, “and after acting in and directing several big outdoor historical dramas around the country, I went to do my graduate study with the theater scholar who had published the only book on this remarkable genre of drama.” “Annie Get Your Gun” is Irving Berlin’s valentine to show business and to the love between two endearing characters from our past, Plummer continues. The big show number from the score is “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” which has become a popular anthem for theater and theater artists worldwide. The musical is set on the stage of “Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show and Congress of Rough Riders from Around the World.” Cody is portrayed in this production by WSCC president, Chuck Dillon. Annie Oakley, America’s sweetheart straight shooter is played by Dani Stansell. Stansell’s onstage partner is John Reed, who plays Frank Butler, Annie Oakley’s devoted husband and fellow showman and exhibition shooter. John Bell plays Chief Sitting Bull, the Hunkpapa Lakota Sioux holy man who led his people as a war chief during years of resistance to United States government policies and its genocide of Native peoples. Sitting Bull joined Cody’s Wild West Show and toured briefly with it around the world in 1885. “Native people are shown to be heroic, highly intelligent, and sensitive first Americans--in fact, in Sitting Bull’s case, he is depicted as much more intelligent and sensitive than almost anyone else in the cast of characters in the play,” Plummer concludes. Annie Oakley is played by Manistee resident and popular area actress Dani Stansell. Oakley’s amazing talent and timely rise to fame led to a starring role in Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show, which propelled her to become the first American female superstar. Using a.22 caliber rifle at 90 feet, Oakley reputedly could split a playing card edge-on and put five or six more holes in it before it touched the ground. “Everyone loved Annie for her amazing shooting skills, but also for her humility, kindness and generosity. I hope to portray those characteristics and make audiences love her, too,” Stansell said.

Believe me, there are plenty of shopping options in Manistee County
Melissa Reed
Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce

Last week, the chamber received word that the Manistee National Forest Festival brochures were ready and would arrive at the chamber office on Friday, just in time for Memorial Day weekend. That was good news because the earlier the brochures are distributed the more time visitors and residents have to plan their time during this special week in Manistee. Forest Festival is a collection of events and the money raised at these events — like the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast, Lions Fish Boil, Jaycees Aquapalooza and the events at First Street Beach — supports programs and services throughout our community all year long. The challenge was that most volunteers and business owners were too busy getting ready for the busy Memorial Day weekend to help distribute the Forest Festival brochures. So how could we get these brochures out? “If I had a little red wagon, I’d take them myself,” I said to Janette at the chamber office. “We have a little yellow wagon,” she informed me — and so I was off. I visited every store and restaurant on River Street that was open and, take it from me, the county’s largest shopping district is ready for summer and most stores already had shoppers inside.

Guest Columnist

Kaleva, Arcadia and along U.S. 31. Anyone who thinks there aren’t many shopping options in Manistee County just isn’t paying attention.

Full of purpose and buoyed by the chance to greet so many business owners on a beautiful day, I moved quickly (OK, I dallied a little bit at Suvi, but they have some great summer fashions so who could blame me?) and by 1 p.m. I was on my way north to Onekama. In Onekama, I stopped at MacBeth, EZ Mart and Portage Point Inn and several businesses in between and delivered brochures and posters for the carnival. Our beautiful Onekama is at its best in summer and I had the strangest longing to be a visitor and not a resident, so that I could be just arriving for the summer. After a stop at Portage Point Inn (where summer is so perfect it seems like a movie), I headed to Saddle Up in Bear Lake and worked my way south from there and as always the view of Bear Lake coming around the curve of U.S. 31 by JJ Witty’s just takes my breath away. In six hours of delivering Forest Festival brochures, I barely scratched the surface of stores and restaurants in Manistee County and this week we’ll be delivering to

Fashion show and luncheon
Suvi Boutique of Manistee and Bear Lake Manor will be hosting a fashion show and luncheon on Saturday, June 12, noon at Bear Lake Manor. Ladies from the Manistee area will be modeling apparel and fashion accessories during the special luncheon prepared by Bear Lake Manor’s staff. Suvi will also be featuring local designer, Tuley of Pink Label Fashion. Tuley offers fashionable custom attire including Neo Victorian apparel and custom corsets. Plan to attend and bring a friend. Seating is limited; call Jan at (231) 864-2242 to make your reservation early.

Now is the time to protect your biggest asset, your workers
District Health Department #10 can help protect your workers by providing free H1N1 vaccinations — either on-site at your business or at the health department. To encourage employee participation, they are providing a special incentive drawing for all those who participate. Clients that make and keep their appointment will be entered to win a $25 gift card to a local business, to be awarded weekly through the month of June. The health department is asking community partners to help promote the vaccination program by informing clients of the availability of the free vaccinations and the incentive drawings. Getting vaccinated now will only help to boost immunity long term, as the H1N1 virus is here for the long haul. Please call DHD #10, Manistee County (231) 723-3595 for more information. Melissa Reed is the executive director of the Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce.

Hospice of Michigan seeks volunteers
Hospice of Michigan is looking for members of the community willing to donate their time to help provide individuals near the end-oflife quality care. Hospice of Michigan’s Ludington office has 80 volunteers dedicated to providing hundreds of hours a year to helping hospice patients and families in our community. Volunteers are needed for patient care in all service areas in Lake, Benzie, Manistee, Mason and Oceana counties. New programs are currently being developed and volunteer opportunities are available for many differing types of positions. Volunteer hours are flexible, are tailored to fit the volunteer and the patient,

Grower and greenhouse guide distributed
Since 1990, the Manistee County MSU Extension office has promoted local growers, greenhouses and related agribusinesses by producing a guide to help residents and visitors locate sources of local agricultural products. The 2010 guide features listings for 21 local agriculture businesses providing their address, hours of operation, items available, phone and fax numbers, e-mail and Web site information. A detailed map of the county shows the location of each business. Four thousand copies of this free guide were recently distributed to nearly 100 locations including the Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce and Manistee County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

John Reed, a teacher at Ludington Area Schools, has been seen onstage at WSCC for years, most recently in the popular musical, “Forever Plaid.” John states, “Building a character for a stage performance can be a difficult and sometimes challenging process for me. I want the character to be authentic. There have been times in the past I have succeeded doing this and times that I have not been as successful as I would have liked. Having strong characters to portray can help make the process easier. Having to perform historical figures can bring the actor an advantage in creating a character. I find I want to learn as much about the person and the time period during which they lived so I can bring my character to life.” Tickets for “Annie Get Your Gun” are available by calling (800) 836-0717, or 843-5507. Tickets will also be available at the Ramsdell Theatre Box Office beginning June 23, although Plummer cautions those wishing to attend that “this is likely to be an SRO, standing room only, production and tickets should be reserved early.”

Fifth grade students at Onekama Schools receive a grant for $200 from the Spirit of the Woods Garden Club member Phyllis Russell.

Onekama students receive grant
ONEKAMA — The fifth grade class of Jennifer Bromley at Onekama Schools wrote a grant to the Spirit of the Woods Garden Club seeking funds to beautify the school’s new flower beds, and they recently received word that the garden club had awarded them a $200 grant. The students were extremely pleased when Phyllis Russell presented them a check on behalf of the garden club. Russell was also given a tour of the school greenhouse project that is growing greens to be used in salads for the school lunch program. Russell gave the students an inspirational speech, and praised their efforts with the gardening projects at the school. The fifth grade class are the ones that have been in charge of maintaining the greenhouse project. The district is also very active in farm-toschool programs to bring a healthy diet into the lunch program. It is all part of the greenhouse project, and the effort to bring healthier foods to the students.

Choral society planning summer solstice concert
The Manistee Choral Society, Free Spirit and featured soloists and vocal quartets will present a Summer Solstice Choral Concert on Monday, June 21, 7 p.m. at Faith Covenant Church, Manistee. The music will be from American composers, including Copland, Berlin, Ellington and also a premier performance of “Wherever There Is Love” by Manistee Choral Society director Carol Voigts. Guest musicians will include pianist Carrie Selbee, Ginny Foster on violin and Benj Ecker on cello. The entire company will join together for Irving Berlin’s rolicking “I Love A Piano.” The keepsake souvenir chapbook program will feature poetry and artwork of various choral members.

‘ArtSnake’ open studio tour
The 2010 Onekama Area ArtSnake Open Studio Tour will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, June 26 and 27. The tour will include eight artists who will open their working studios to the public to see new paintings, drawings, sculptures and fabric art. The artists are Amanda Acker, Jamey and Susan Barnard, Les Scruggs, Leslie J. Laskey, Richard Kooyman and Melanie Parke, and Lauren Satlowski. The name ArtSnake came from the creative concept that people would “snake” around the curvy Portage Lake as they toured the various artists’ studios. Maps for the tour and further information is available at the Web site www.artsnakestudiotour.

MANISTEE — The Manistee ShoreLine ShowCase committee is continuing the funding drive that makes the June 22 through Aug. 24 summer jazz concerts possible.

The first one, on June 22, will feature a new group, Jive at Five. Levels of support include Diamond ($1,000 plus), Platinum ($500 plus), Gold ($250-499), Silver ($100-249), Bronze ($50-99) and Friend (amounts up to $49).

Planning commission tackles zoning amendments
AssociAte editor
STRONACH – The Manistee County Planning Commission approved several zoning ordinance amendments and heard a very informative report on a variety of meetings and training sessions attended by various planning commission members. One set of the amendments came from the Stronach Planning Commission to clarify the definition of livestock and to add definitions of domestic animal, fowl, fur bearing animal and exotic. The proposed amendments are all wording changes. Manistee County Planner Sue Wagner found that the proposed amendments do not create additional land uses within the township, and she doesn’t find that they will create conflicts with neighboring jurisdictions. The commission voted to inform the Stronach Township Board it may take action on the proposed amendments at its discretion, but may want to consider information contained in the staff report. Several zoning amendments presented by the Filer Township were reviewed by planning commission members William Pettis and Gayle Crampton. The proposed amendments were wording chances only and Wagner reported that she found no conflict with the Manistee County Master Plan. She also reported that no new land uses are being created by the zoning amendment and no zoning districts were being modified to cause conflicts with neighboring jurisdictions. Wagner said that based on her review, the Charter Township of Filer can take action on the proposed amendment at its discretion. They voted 6-0 to approve that action. A request came in from Robert Knowles regarding property No. 51-08-032-17505 for an address for a new home he is building on a private road of High Bridge Road. There are already two addresses issued on this private road, so Knowles was told that the private road would have to be named and his address would be assigned to the new private road. The name he suggested was Wilderness Trail and it resulted in three changes of address. They include: n 7660 High Bridge Road to 13950 Wilderness Trail. n 7614 High Bridge Road to 13879 Wilderness Trail. n 7616 High Bridge Road to 13779 Wilderness Trail. Wagner delivered her monthly report to the board, and in it were several items of interest. She told the board that four soil erosion permits were issued, and nine were closed out during the month. She also said that four new addresses were issued by the department. The planner also reported that the quarterly Brownfield report was completed and that she worked on additional zoning maps for Manistee Township and started writing language for the capital improvements plan. Wagner also gave an update on the remonumentation program in the absence of county surveyor Patrick Bentley. “He sent me a message saying that he and Jim Nordlund have started on this year’s contracts and that on June 21 they will have a peer meeting to review the corners that were done by the Forest Service,” said Wagner. “Pat also told me he is working on getting the 2008 GPS work.” Reports were given by meetings and training sessions. Those that were touched on included a Cooperative Planning meeting in Dickson and Norman Townships, Shared Public Services Initiative, Farm Market GAAMP training and New Economy 101 and 201 meetings. Planning Commission member Roger Smithe delivered a permit application on the Inland Lakes and Streams Act on a request to build a bridge at the Old Stronach Road Crossing of the Little Manistee River. “I went and looked at the bridge, and there presently is two 12-foot culverts,” said Smithe. “I think building a bridge will allow the river to flow more freely.” Planning commission members agreed by a 5-0 vote to send a letter supporting the construction of the bridge. However, the board also voted 5-0 to oppose a United States Environmental Protection Agency Public Notice on an injection well just over the Manistee County line in Mason County. The planning commission opposed the well because they didn’t feel it was deep enough to protect the drinking water. Planning commission member Gayle Crampton is leaving the board to pursue business interests and to seek a seat on her own township planning board after serving four years on the county board. The board passed a motion to honor her service to the board.

Manistee Medical Care foundation off the ground
MANISTEE — The Manistee County Medical Care Facility Foundation is an organization in its infancy that, ironically, was created to help people who are at the other end of the age spectrum. According to Linda Duchon, administrator and chief operating officer of the medical care facility, the foundation was started to give people and organizations an easy method of making contributions toward projects that will help the facility. Larry Bielski is president of the foundation board, Mary Murton is treasurer, and Duchon is secretary. Other board members are Dr. Malinda Bell, T.G. Stege, and Ben Kubiak. Stege said he became interested in serving on the board after spending time at the facility visiting a friend. “I encourage people to stop out and visit,” he said. “They will be surprised how many of the residents they know, and just five minutes will make someone’s day. I guarantee that you will leave here with a jump in your step.” Duchon said there is always a lot going on at the facility and during the recent observance of National Nursing Home Week, there were more activities than ever. They included baseball day, Hawaiian day, hat day, sports day. Girl Scouts handed out cookies. Summer picnic complete with hot dogs and strawberry shortcake, ice cream social, funky sock day, western day. “There is always so much energy and activity here,” Bell said. Currently the medical care facility has 122 residents. Duchon said that there were a lot of visitors during that week; “but always have quite a few,” she said. “We were pleased that during nursing home week even some employees not scheduled to work came in for some of the special events.” Duchon added that one of the improvements made at the facility recently has been very popular with residents, staff and vistors. Major changes were made to the dining area that make it easier for visitors to get something to eat; and residents can find something to eat at any time. “The residents, staff, and visitors really like the new arrangement,” Duchon said. “It’s important that visitors can get something to eat because it’s not unusual for family members to spend the whole day at the facility with their loved ones. Bielski said the foundation board is always looking for specific projects and then contributions to fund them. Currently they are considering purchasing new lift tables for the rehabilitation center in honor of Delores and Harry Tabaczka, replacing tables that are 48 years old. Tax-deductible contributions can be mailed to the Manistee County Medical Care Facility Foundation at 1505 E. Parkdale Ave., Manistee 49660. Further information is availabe by calling Duchon at (231) 723-2543.

Lakeside Shakespeare operates as a 501(c)(3) entity, and all contributions are tax deductible. Directing “King Lear” will be Jessi Hill, a veteran of Chicago and New York Theatre.
