Ruth Bloomquist headlines Zellie’s Opry House concert

Zellie’s Opry House has waited a long time to book just the right band with a “female front and lead singer” and they’ve finally found the little lady with the big voice and talent to match! Fresh off their European tour, Ruth Bloomquist, the first half of the Ruth & Max Bloomquist duo, has delighted audiences throughout the Midwest. Backed by the musicianship of her husband Max on upright bass, Dan Seabolt on fiddle, and John “Sky” King on guitar, this bands packs a powerful presence.

Blue Water Ramblers to Open Lakeview’s 2010 Music In The Park

NEW MEMBERS

Lakeview’s Music In The Park Concert Series will kick off it’s 16th season of great “lawn chair music” at the Village of Lakeview’s Lakeside Park located on the shores of Tamarack Lake, Wednesday, June 30, at 7 featuring the popular MIchigan folk group, The Blue Water Ramblers.

It includes lake shanties, lumberman ballads, union rallying cries, farmers’ paeans, Michigan humor, ‘60s civil rights and protest music, love songs, gospel music and children’s ditties. Everyone agrees that these combine into a versatile repertoire to the delight and entertainment of their audiences. “I think my hero, Woody Guthrie, would approve,” opined BanjoJim. “We’re singing the people’s songs about the people’s lives and they can join right in and sing along.” This year’s Music In The Park series has expanded its schedule from eight to 10 concerts, featuring some of the country’s finest touring professional musicians as well as providing a showcase for the area’s local talent. MIP is a free community event sponsored by the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce and made possible by the generous contributions of area businesses, service organizations and local patrons. Grab your lawn chair and join your friends and neighbors at Lakeview’s Music In The Park, a Wednesday night summer tradition. 2010 Lakeview Music In The Park Concert Schedule All Concerts at the Village of Lakeview’s Lakeside Park begin at 7 p.m. June 30 — The Blue Water Ramblers Folk Songs That You Know July 7 — Still On The Hill Voted the Ozark’s Folk Group July 14 — David McIntire and Steve Albert Two of the Area’s Finest Folk Performers July 21 — Mulebone Traditional Blues from New York City July 28 — The R.F.D.

Panhandle chamber welcomes newest members
This week the Panhandle Area Chamber of Commerce is welcoming Steel Wheel Farms to its increasing membership. From dairy farming to now growing chemical free produce George and Gaye Alverson, Jr., and family have vested their love of agriculture into raising varieties of vegetables, fruits, and cut flowers. Located approximately 5 miles outside Howard City at 6050 Whitefish Road, you’ll find a quiet stand of Michigan hardwood forest surrounding fields sown with a bounty of many crops to come. At the entrance of this haven a set of steel tractor wheels welcomes you to a historical past. “These steel wheels came from my grandfather’s first tractor and have been here for a long time. They are a unique representation of our family’s farm. The name became a good fit.” -George Alverson Jr. Selling their produce at the Newaygo, Howard City, and Belmont markets, CSA shares, and a stand right at the farm, buying local has never been so easy. “We have always enjoyed eating out of our own garden and want more reliable sources for our food. We are looking forward to providing that with sustainable, chemical free growing practices, for anyone else who has also been looking for peace of mind when purchasing fresh produce.” –Steel Wheel Farms As CSA’s, community supported agriculture, and farmers markets alike are emerging from every corner of Michigan’s agricultural community there is much to chose from. The family’s enjoyment of trying different vegetables and occasionally getting carried away in the seed catalogues, has provided delicious heirloom and new varieties of salad and braising greens, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, herbs, eggplants and much more, to be harvested this season from the farm’s 2 acres of planting beds. So while following their motto, ‘Bringing you what was good way back when, with a few of something new’, Steel Wheel Farms welcomes all to take a taste and find what’s to your liking either at the farm stand or their Web sitewww.steelwheelfarms.com.

4-Hers hosting groundbreaking ceremony
The Montcalm County 4-H Fair Association invites media members, 4-Hers, leaders and community members to the ground breaking ceremony for the new Montcalm County 4-H Fair Grounds. Festivities will begin at 7p.m. on Monday, June 21, 2010. The ceremonies will be located near the Peck Road entrance to the new fairgrounds. (This is next to Jay’s Muffler Shop, just east of M-91.) “While most people believe the ground breaking marks the beginning of a new project,” Pat Schuster fair board president said. “To me it is finally very visible proof of the years of commitment and planning by fair board and community members to bring this new facility to Montcalm County.” The ground breaking ceremony signals the beginning of phase one of the $4,000,000 building project. This phase includes site work, drainage, wells, septic, installation of utilities and roughing in the camp ground. Phase two which includes the construction of the horse arenas, horse and livestock barn(s) will begin almost simultaneously; and will proceed as funds allow. “We are beginning this work with the proceeds from the purchase of our lease for the current fair grounds,” Mike McGonigal construction committee chairperson explained. “Raising funds to complete the project will be an ongoing process. We have already had several generous donations from individuals and businesses such as Consumer’s Energy

and Isabella Bank. We also have several grant submissions in process.” Schuster and other construction committee members admit that the project will probably not be completed by the 2011 fair, but all of the committee members are confident that the project will be far enough along to host a successful fair. “Two or twenty tents, four or forty port-ajons, we will be here in 2011,” commented Schuster.

Nearly three quarters of a million pre-owned vehicles were destroyed during the Cash For Clunkers campaign. With lower bank rates and the economy on the best uprise in years, customers have turned to purchasing certified pre-owned vehicles to receive the most vehicle for their money.This, in turn, has caused a severe shortage of pre-owned vehicles nationwide. This has made it nearly impossible for Ed Koehn Ford to purchase high demand vehicles from the auction houses. We must restock our pre-owned inventory right now. If you have a pre-owned vehicle, regardless of condition, age, or amount owed, we need your trade in. We will also pay off your loan completely regardless of what’s owed on it. We are prepared to offer thousands above market trade in value on your trade. In order to take advantage of this unprecedented offer, you must bring this invitation to Ed Koehn Ford Lincoln Mercury during event hours. We promise: 1) A great selection of New and Quality Pre-Owned vehicles. 2) Great service and helpful sales staff. WE 3) Follow up after the event.

Keeping your pet safe from pests
North AmericAN Precis syNdicAte
With the return of warm weather, everyone — including the family pet — is likely to be spending more time outdoors in the coming months. But pet owners need to be especially cautious, as insects like fleas and ticks can pose a serious health risk to dogs, cats and other animals during the spring and summer. Fleas, for example, are not just an itchy annoyance. Known for leaving itchy red bumps, their saliva can cause anemia and dermatitis and transfer tapeworms. “Fleas are known for their quick breeding capabilities and a handful on your pet can quickly turn into hundreds in your home if left unchecked,” said Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). “Their small size and mobility make it impossible to detect them on surfaces such as carpets and linens, but a pest professional can help eradicate an infestation.” Ticks can be equally hazardous to family pets. Female ticks can attach near a pet’s spinal cord, causing “tick paralysis.” The condition causes muscle weakness, loss of coordination and in some cases death from respiratory failure as chest muscles become paralyzed. The NPMA recommends these tips to help reduce your pet’s exposure to fleas

and ticks: nCheck pets frequently for fleas and flea dirt. Be aware of excessive scratching, licking and nibbling grooming behavior in pets. nAvoid walking in tall grass, where there is a greater chance of fleas hitching a ride. nAvoid tick habitats such as low-growing brushy vegetation along the edge of the woods or a trail. nBathe pets after walks or playtime with other animals. nWash pet bedding, collars and plush toys. nWash bed linens and vacuum carpets, floors and furniture frequently.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
TO THE EDITOR: Dear Edge Students, Parents, Staff, Community and Village of Howard City Employees, It has been my pleasure to oversee Edgerton Upper Elementary School for the past twelve years. I have been blessed to have such wonderful, kind and generous people to work with. I am most proud of the growth and success Edge students have made while in our care. As many of you know, I will not be returning for the 2010-2011 school year. The “Edge” is special; a cohesive group of individuals who grew their school from the bottom up and six years ago was designated as a Michigan Blue Ribbon Exemplary School. This was a monumental milestone for everyone connected with the school and the community as well. We had our last Walk In The Park (aka Walk-A-Thon) on Friday, May 21, 2010. The Village of Howard City and the Edge collaborated once again to host a successful fitness walk. We are always so grateful to have such wonderful support from our students, parents, and community. 207 Edge students pledged and participated in the Walk. Collectively our students walked 3,875 laps (equal to 1,291 miles). Not even the rain could put a damper on their spirit and determination. 5th grader Lucas Prater walked the most laps (29 laps) in a little under 2 hours. Five classrooms (Singleton, Spach, Bolf, Nunley, and Stellini) had 100% participation and earned $50 to spend as they wished. Mrs. Bolf’s class walked the most laps (469 laps), while Miss Stellini’s class raised the most money ($841 total). In total, students raised $3,866.53. After prizes, incentives and a donation to the Village of Howard City to help continue with improvements to our beautiful Ensley Park, the Walk produced a net profit of $2,385.67 to be used toward new technology at Edgerton. Several staff (including myself) will not return to the Edge next year. Mrs. Readle, PE/Health teacher, will teach Science and PE at the high school. Mrs. Ouzts, 5th grade teacher, will move to 1st grade at MacNaughton. Mrs. Ketchum, Special Education teacher, will also join MacNaughton’s team. Mrs. Chatman, 4th grade teacher, has been affected by the budget cuts and likely will not return to Tri County. Mrs. Snarski, Administrative Assistant at Edgerton, will also move to a new position at the high school. Lastly, Mrs. Elder, 4th grade teacher at the Edge for many years, will not return due to health concerns. All of these staff will be greatly missed at Edgerton. We wish all of them the VERY best in their new endeavors and opportunities. The teachers and staff remaining at the Edge will successfully reinvent the Edge to meet the needs of their students. It has been a wonderful twelve years for me. The Edge will forever hold a special place in my heart and I know the staff will always strive to make it the very best it can be for the students.

Cheney in attendance, also held in Washington, DC, the 2003 Miss Kentucky Pageant, and the 2005 National Convention for the National Exchange Clubs of America. A three octave range, a voice alive with the dynamics of faith and experience, a clear and winsome testimony, and a deep-seated commitment to the Christian message make a Jim Worthing concert inspiring, challenging and uniquely unforgettable.

Getting your teen driver ready for the road
North AmericAN Precis syNdicAte
There’s good news for parents who have a teen who’s ready to begin driving. There are practical steps you can take to keep your teen safe when he or she hits the road. Not only is it important for your new driver to know how to be a safe and responsible driver, it’s equally as important to know the basics about the car itself and what to do in an emergency. Here are some tips: n Take the time to get to know your vehicle. Whether it’s brand new or a well-used family vehicle, have your teen take the time to review the owner’s manual. n Show your teen driver how to check the oil, transmission and steering fluids, and point out where the engine, battery, air filter and radiator are located, as well as the reservoirs to fill for the radiator and windshield washer. n Teens can be notoriously hard on vehicles when driving, and they don’t always adhere to good maintenance practices. Those are compelling reasons to upgrade to one of the new generation of motor oils. For instance, high-performance lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple formulates its synthetic motor oil to achieve extremely high oxidation stability. This allows for more miles between oil changes and provides an extra degree of protection against haphazard maintenance. Royal Purple’s lubricants have also been shown to improve fuel economy, which can save you money on fuel. n The exterior of the vehicle is important, too. Make sure the headlights and taillights are all in working order. Check that the wiper blades are properly cleaning your windshield. Invest in a tire pressure gauge, which, in addition to the traditional pencil style, is now available in digital models. n In the event of an emergency, make sure your teen driver knows where the registration and insurance cards are kept. An easy-to-access place is the glove box. Glove box organizers or registration wallets are great ways to keep those important docu-

ments together. n While parents can’t control other drivers or situations that teen drivers might encounter on the road, they can at least provide the basic tools in a Roadside Emergency Kit. Memberships to auto clubs and a GPS on a cell phone can be helpful, but not always accessible depending on where the incident occurs. Preassembled emergency kits are avail-

able for purchase, but even if you create your own kit, make sure you review with your teen how to use each item in it, such as roadside flares, a quart of oil, a small first aid kit, extra fuses, a flashlight, a multipurpose tool that includes pliers, wire cutters, pocketknife, bottle opener, saw, screwdrivers and files, a tire inflator, rags, a pen and paper, and a help sign or white cloth to signal for help.

Three Medicare Reforms That Affect Your Medicine, and Maybe Your Life
Drugs and donut holes. Part D of Medicare’s four insurance sections covers drug costs for people over 65. Right now, D insurance covers the first $2,830 in drug costs. Then you pay 100% until you’ve spent $4,550 yourself. The amount you pay goes up each year! The gap between $2,830 and $4,550 is called ‘the donut hole.’ Well, the donut hole is shrinking now… Medicare insurance covers everyone age 65 and older. Details on the March, 2010, Federal Health Care Reform legislation on Medicare are in and the news on prescription drug costs alone is just what the doctor ordered.

In 2010 anyone in the donut hole receives a $250 rebate. Then starting in 2011 brand name medications are discounted 50% (50%!) and there’s a 7% discount on generic meds. And every year from 2012 through 2019 the discounts increase until 2020 when the donut hole is eliminated. Medicine for everybody. About time.

Preventing sickness. Preventive medical services are covered under Medicare. But copays and deductibles make them inaccessible to some. Starting 2011, no more deductibles or copays for preventive services and annual checkups. This early detection and prevention means early treatment. Early treatment means fewer complications of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and emphysema, just to name a few. Fewer complications? Lower costs, better health. Three reforms that improve the quality of life for someone you know. And lower the government’s cost. It’s a beautiful thing.

Three Quick and Easy Steps for a Beautiful Exterior A
a beautiful exterior. Here’s how: Step 1: Control the moisture around your home. Keep shrubs, plants and mulch away from exterior walls. Trim any branches or tree limbs that touch the outside of your home. Clear gutters and drains of any leaves or debris. Redirect sprinklers and rotate hanging planters to prevent water from regularly collecting on exterior surfaces. Also, make sure rain water is not collecting near your home’s foundation. Repair leaks and extend downspouts away from the foundation. Step 2: Clean dirt and stains off of your home’s exterior with a house cleaner that contains an EPA-registered

Step 3: Make outdoor furniture look like new again. Patio tables, chairs and other outdoor furniture collect dirt and stains, giving your outdoor living spaces an unappealing appearance. Get rid of tough stains on vinyl, plastic and wood with a product like JOMAX Mold & Mildew Stain Remover. Just spray on, wait 5 minutes and wipe off to reveal “like new,” dirt and stain-free surfaces. Here’s one last tip from the pros: Maintain the look of your cleaned surfaces by preventing mold and mildew from growing throughout the warm months. Try JOMAX Mold and Mildew Shield on outdoor vinyl and plastics such as siding, trim, fences and furniture.

Leaky Gut Syndrome
This is a condition that traditional medicine does not really recognize as legitimate. The underlying premise is that the “pores” in the lining of the small bowel become damaged and begin to allow large particles of partially digested food to enter the blood. When this happens your body begins to make antibodies against these “foreign” particles. This is the basis for food allergies and some of the auto-immune diseases that we experience. For example, casein is the protein in milk. It is a large protein molecule. To get nutritional value from this protein it has to be broken down into Amino Acids. When you drink the milk and it goes into the stomach. The Hydrochloric Acid in your stomach converts pepsinogen to pepsin and this enzyme (pepsin) begins to break down the casein into polypeptides. The polypeptides are moved into the duodenum (first portion of the small intestine). There enzymes from the pancreas (protease) break down the polypeptides into peptides and finally into amino acids. If the polypeptides or the peptides get absorbed into the blood, antibodies begin to form because these are not supposed to be there. Nasal congestion, post nasal drainage, headaches, Fibromyalgia, joint pain, irritable bowel, reflux, irritable bladder and many more symptoms can develop. The most common cause of Leaky Gut Syndrome is an over growth of yeast in the intestines. Reduce sugars and starches, take Probiotics, avoid antibiotics, avoid chlorine, avoid steroids, cortisone, and hormones, and use a bowel cleanse at least once per year. Then the lining of the bowel can return to normal, removing all the symptoms of the Leaky Gut Syndrome. Put Your Health in Your Own Hands. Bob Huttinga PA-C. 989-352-6500.

AVALANCHE by Patrick McManus

I would recommend this book. It is a very good read and quick. Sandra

My Michigan Hero
Written by Johnny Newell “Son”
I have lived for ten years with only my mom to take care of me. My dad was diagnosed with cancer and died when I was threeand-a-half. My dad was an extraordinary man who fought cancer for five years. My father grew up on a dairy farm, the oldest of four boys. Every morning he woke up at 4 a.m. to milk cows. He always said that is what gave him his work ethic and his strive to become better. He learned as a farmer that to accomplish anything worth having takes hard work. He followed in his father’s footsteps who also served as a marine. He was very proud to wear the U.S. Marines uniform. He knew that by serving his country, he could follow his father’s footsteps and earn money for college. While my father was in the marine corps, he was stationed at West Loch Naval Magazine Base. There, he was a guard for weapons coming off the U.S. Naval ships before entering Pearl Harbor. Due to this service, he contracted leukemia, he was only 22. When my father was diagnosed with leukemia, his family was told there was no way for him to survive, but he prevailed. He refused to stop fighting and lived for five more years. While in remission, my father started college, completed his pre-med, and was accepted to the college of optometry. He worked several jobs, including a job as an S.L.A. (structural learning assistant) instructor. As an S.L.A. instructor, he helped many students pass difficult classes from pathophysiology to advanced math’s. Due to his hard work, in 2007, a scholarship in my father’s honor started at Ferris State for outstanding students who are applying for the optometry program. My father relapsed, his cancer came back, before he was able to start the college of optometry. When my father relapsed, he didn’t feel sorry for himself, he only thought of his family. He was determined, against a less than five percent chance of survival, to undergo a non-related bone marrow transplant so that he could have even the slimmest chance to see me and my sisters grow up. While my father was undergoing his bone marrow transplant, he never lost his faith in God. No matter how sick he was, he always made time for me and my sisters. Sometimes all he could do was barely lift his arm to throw me a ball. He never felt sorry for himself, and still tried to help others. He would talk to the other patients and their families, giving them hope or helping them to understand some of the medical jargon. He had a wonderful sense of humor, even during the worst of times. He would always make jokes and try to make everything seem normal to me and my sisters. My dad was a wonderful person and I will never forget him. The reason he is my hero is because he never gave up, no matter how painful or difficult it was for him to keep going. I was more important to him than anything in the world. He left behind broken hearts, yet memories that have challenged all of us to be the best that we could be!!!

Director’s Report: Janice W. reported there was a good turn-out for the first day of the Summer Reading Program for Kids. This year’s program, “Make A Splash, Read!”, will continue through the week of July 21. She reported we need to get the word out about the August millage. She reported there will no longer be inter-loan of AV material (DVDs, videos, audio books and CDs) between Lakeland libraries. This is due to budget constraints.

Publicity Report: Arlene B. reported she will be putting up posters for the Quilt Raffle that will take place during the Harvest Festival in September.

John of God
www.johnofgod.com

Our pet this week goes by Bernice, and she’s the biggest of the big dogs, a St. Bernard. She’s just one of the many dogs and cats available for adoption at the Montcalm County Animal Shelter in Stanton. Bernice is about 3 years old, weighs around 100 lbs, and eats enough food for an army. She was brought into the shelter as a stray on June 14, and unless her owners come to claim her she’ll be available for adoption i i d l starting June 21. Bernice needs a large home with a large yard to roam around and play - no apartments for this dog! Her fur is brown/ black/white and her shelter ID# is 10/06/41. Many other dogs besides Bernice are available to be adopted, and plenty of cats too. Go online to for a full list of adoptable animals. There is a $40 adoption fee for dogs, $20 for cats, as well as a refundable spay/neuter deposit ($50 for dogs, $25 for cats) unless the animal is “fixed” already. New animals are brought into the shelter on a daily basis, so if the one you want is gone by the time you call, the Montcalm County Animal Shelter will do its best to find you a dog or cat that matches what you’re looking for. The Montcalm County Animal Shelter is open to the public Mon.-Fri. 12:30 pm to 5 pm, except Wed. 12:30 pm to 7 pm. Call (989) 831-7355 or (616) 225-7355 for more information.
