Each December Marquette Rail brings its Santa Train to towns along its route from Grand Rapids to Manistee. The short line railroad that in 2005 took over operations between Grand Rapids and Manistee is essential to several Manistee industries.

The Marquette Rail brings more than Santa to Manistee
“We’ve had a very good year,” Smith said of the railroad, adding that business downturns made 2009 a tough year, however expansions at Martin Marietta, new business from PCA, and the addition of American Materials, have brought tonnage back to 2008 levels. Short line railroads have become known for offering better customer service than the giant railroad corporations, however most things shipped and received also rely on rail companies beyond the Marquette Rail system. Smith said that all of the railway systems are working on improving customer service. “We have really worked hard with CSX, our main interchange partner, to re-created the whole scheme of how freight from our businesses is handled,” Smith said. “We all know that we don’t lose responsibility for what happens to the freight just because it is beyond our line.” Smith said. When something happens to a shipment, it’s the fault of, quote, the railroad,” Smith said. The Santa Train has become wellappreciated gift Marquette Rail gives to the communities it serves. “I saw the Santa Train for the first time last year and I was impressed with the reception it got in each of the towns,” Smith said. “But, then, I grew up in Chicago where there was a Santa on every corner, so it was an eye opener for me since kids in the smaller communities we serve don’t see Santa that often.”
Last Saturday Marquette Rail celebrated its fifth anniversary by bringing its annual Santa Train to the communities it serves. Since 2005 Marquette Rail has been leasing the tracks and running the railroad between Grand Rapids and Manistee — and it continues to be an essential service for several Manistee industries. “Manistee is actually our biggest customer base on the railroad,” said Al Smith, Marquette Rail’s director of business development. Four industries are Marquette Rail’s main Manistee customers — American Materials, Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties, Morton Salt and Packaging Corporation of America. American Materials started its aggregate and asphalt business earlier this year on property purchased from Seng Dock and Trucking just northeast of Reitz Park. The company uses special heated cars to ship and receive liquid asphalt. According to Smith, this new business added approximately 600 car loads to the railroad’s business. During the Manistee Manufacturers Council plant tours held in August, Jim Reithel, Martin Marietta plant manager, said his plant depends on the railroad because it brings in 1,000 tons per day — 10 rail cars — of one of its main raw materials, lime, from a quarry in Northwest Ohio. Reithel said that Martin Marietta also ships about half of its finished product by rail.

A customer for life
Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce
What would you do to please a customer? What would your frontline employees do? This week, when it’s snowy and cold and our customers are busy, is a perfect time to provide the over-the-top service they’ll remember years later. How many customers for life will you gain this week?
Years ago, I was en route to west Michigan for vacation. It’s a 16-hour drive from Boston, so we stopped overnight in a small town just over the Michigan/Ontario border. I was tired of driving and didn’t know my way around, so for dinner, we decided to order pizza and have it delivered to our hotel room. After we ordered the pizza, the order taker asked if we wanted pop with our order. “Good job up-selling,” I thought and I asked if they had Vernor’s which I love and which is not available in the northeast. They didn’t, but the young man on the phone offered to stop at a convenience store on the way and get some for me. Wow. All these years later, I can’t remember what the name of the town was, but I remember the name of the pizza chain. I don’t remember what the pizza cost, but I remember that I gave a big tip. I don’t remember how much they charged me to bring the Vernor’s, but I remember how cool it was to have it delivered. And in all the years since, I’ve chosen that company over other options because the product is good, but the customer service is great. I’m a customer for life.

Ramsdell Theatre this winter. Rick Plummer and John Bell have volunteered their time for labor and are asking for volunteers to help with this project. As a major cultural asset for our community, the Ramsdell is important for both our community and your businesses. The stage floor has many uneven places at the old dangerous elevators, the old scene storage recess and the covered footlights. Rolling scenery is next to impossible and dancing is dangerous. The plan is to remove the old elevators, remove all uneven flooring, remove the old dangerous stairs to the sub stage, and install new joists, subfloor and new 1” x 4” T&G clear Douglas Fir stage flooring as well as installing a circular stair to the sub stage area. The first phase will involve demolition and removal of the elevators, damaged flooring and the old stairs. Volunteers are needed for this demolition, as well as to help once reconstruction is started. Demolition will have to be scheduled; plans are for the third week of December or the first week of January. If you want to volunteer, contact John Bell, belljohn@ charter.net
the Glorious Forest. As in past years, the trees on the grounds of West Shore Medical Center will be lit and the lobby will be festively decorated. The names of Glorious Forest honorees will be prominently displayed in the hospital lobby throughout the season. Honorees will be publicly recognized in two new ways. First, names of those honored and remembered will be listed at gloriousforest. org. This site will be accessible to anyone, anywhere, throughout the year so memories can be shared with family and friends around the globe. Finally, honorees will be included in a beautiful full page ad in the Manistee News Advocate on Christmas Eve. For more information or to make a gift, contact Brooke Stevens, Executive Director of West Shore Healthcare Foundation, at (231) 398-1270 or visit gloriousforest.org.

DNRE increases hatchery production of walleyes
The Department of Natural Resources and Environment has begun gearing up to return hatchery production of walleyes to historic levels. The DNRE plans to take some 50 million eggs this spring to produce fry for pond-rearing and direct stocking, an eight-fold increase over the last two years. Since 2006, the DNRE has cut back on most of its walleye rearing activities because of the presence of Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia (VHS) in the brood-stock waters. Now, after several years of testing, a technique has been found to disinfect walleye eggs and prevent spreading VHS. As a result, the DNRE will now resume large-scale rearing and stocking of walleyes. “In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have cut our walleye fry production,” DNRE Director Rebecca Humphries said. “But the specter of bringing VHS into our hatchery system or transferring VHS to new waters was just too risky. The ecosystem is constantly changing and our management practices must change with it. We are pleased that an effective treatment for walleye eggs against VHS has been found and we’re ramping up our production accordingly.” The DNRE expects it to take two years to return to full production of walleye fry. A number of the rearing ponds, which have been idled for the last several years, are in need of maintenance before they can be brought back on line for production. Nonetheless, the DNRE expects to produce at least 80 percent of the total capacity for walleye fry in 2011 and be back to full production in 2012.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environment is committed to the conservation, protection, management, and accessible use and enjoyment of the state’s environment, natural resources, and related economic interests for current and future generations.

Living through a Northern Michigan winter is always a challenge
“Oh the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, And since we’ve no place to go, Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow” “Let it Snow” song by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne
A lot of Manistee County people may have been humming those words last weekend when we were hit with the first big snowstorm of the year. There really wasn’t a lot we could do about it. Those of us that have lived our entire lives in this part of Northern Lower Michigan have come to realize over the years that along with the beauty comes the other side of Mother Nature in the winter. Although I am sure the snowmobile and ski enthusiasts thought the sight of the white snow coming down was pure heaven. It never ceases to amaze me the crazy things people do when a snowstorm hits this area. It often makes you wonder what were they thinking when they did it. I overheard someone say that there wasn’t any way they were going out in this weather to drive because it was “just too dangerous to be on the roads.” However, in the next sentence they spoke about the media, and everyone with the exception of someone living in a cave is exposed to it. But ... let the first snowflakes start to pile up and everyone has this surprised look on their faces like they are saying, “Where did this come from?” It sends every tennis shoe wearing grandma into the car in the direction for the store because they can’t survive without getting an extra quart of milk or loaf of bread. To me what is even crazier is I heard of this one guy who just “had to run out” to purchase some cigarettes. It makes you kind of wonder why you would risk your life driving in that weather to get something that is going to kill you anyway. What drives me crazy about the winter season is the number of layers of clothing we must put on to go into the outside to stay warm. It seems the older I get, the thicker the padding it seems to take to keep me warm. At this pace, someday in the distant future when I hit 70, they will be able to just roll me out the door because there are so many layers of clothing surrounding me. Of course, like the proverbial little kid who should “have went” before they left for the car trip, it always seems to happen with the rest of us when put on all those layers of clothes. That means taking it all off again, and then starting all over which usually means the desire to go outside by that time has diminished. I am sure there are others like me who run into what I call the “snowplow syndrome.” Last Sunday when we had the big snowstorm I was out there shoveling like crazy for 90 minutes and then went in, took off all of the winter gear to hear that familiar roar of the snowplow going down the street. That allows me two options to the problem. I can either put all those winter clothes back on and clear out what the plow threw in, or let it sit and freeze at the end of the driveway. If I let it freeze that means working twice as hard the following day to try and remove it. Then there are what I like to call the “attention seekers.” These
plans to curl up on the couch, watch some football, and order in pizza. Huh? When I heard those words it made me think you will not go out to drive in this weather, but you think nothing of asking some young kid delivering pizza to go out there in his beat-up car and bald tires on those icy roads. Another thing that amazes me is with the weather technology at our disposal today. They actually predict almost to the hour three days in advance when a storm will hit. It is plastered all over
are the people that will pop on a pair of shorts in a raging blizzard, and walk around in stores just begging for someone to remark about what they are wearing. If you ask them if they are cold they say “no, not at all” even though they are shivering like crazy when you ask. I swear that there was one guy in a store last week that had sandals and no socks on and his feet were almost purple. But ... he was cool — literally. Usually stormy weather has everyone looking and begging for cancellations. Every kid and teacher wants school called off and the same can be said for meetings and other gatherings. What amazes me is they have blizzards in big cities where everyone is urged to stay off the roads. They can’t make it to work or anywhere else, but 70,000 can make it to a football stadium where they will sit outside in blowing snow and windchills of 10 below zero to watch a football game. Kind of makes you think — doesn’t it? Something else I find interesting is the way people drive in extreme snow conditions. They will either go very fast or so slow that

Keep pets warm and safe during winter months
Looks like winter has found us. As we strive to keep warm, dry, and cozy, let’s not forget our pets need our help to be the same. Our pets belong indoors with us, but if you must keep them outdoors, make sure they have a dry, draft-free shelter. Use straw rather than blankets as they get wet and freeze. Make sure they always have fresh, clean water and good nutritional food. When they come in, get the built-up snow off their feet. Make sure the sidewalk salt you use is pet safe. As we’re getting our homes ready for the holidays, let’s keep our pets safety in mind. Tinsel and wrapping ribbons appear quite attractive to a playful pet but can be harmful if swallowed. Keep your breakable ornaments up high. As guests are coming or going, make sure your pet doesn’t escape and all pets should have a name tag on. If your pets appear nervous around a group, they might prefer to be in a room with a few of their toys. If you are planning to give a pet as a gift, please make sure the recipient is ready, willing and able to care for it. If your house is going to be busy, maybe a gift certificate for a pet would be better. After the holiday, they can come pick one out. Sometimes busy holidays are not the best time to introduce a new pet to a household. Speaking of name tags, you can get a great one at Lucky Lizard and part of the cost will come to To date they have donated over 5 tons of bagged food and almost 900 cans. There have also been donations paid on our account at Parkdale. This is a wonderful way to help us. We will be having an adopt-athon at Sports Ink/Lucky Lizard on Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. We have a great variety of pets that would love nothing more for Christmas than a “forever home.” They have all been so good and don’t understand why they had to move out of their homes. We always need volunteers to help us out, especially the morning cleaning. They begin at 8:30 every morning, 365 days a year so if you’d like to come help out, we’d appreciate it. If you’re unable to clean, the animals love company and would like someone to just sit and spend time with them. You can do this any afternoon we are open, Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday noon to 4 p.m. All of us at Homeward Bound — the four-legged ones and the twolegged ones who have the privilage of caring for them — would like to thank all of our wonderful supporters who have helped keep our shelter going. Homeward Bound is their home, however long or short their stay is. Our desire is to keep them as healthy, happy and loved as long as they are there. We wish all our friends a very Merry Christmas!
KEN: FROM PAGE 3
there are 45 cars backed up behind them. What is even more ineresting is the number of people driving fast who still have a cell phone glued to their ear. Don’t you think they could put it down long enough to have two hands on the wheel? I guess it does come in handy when you run across from them a few miles down the road in the ditch, as they are calling for a wrecker. One of my personal favorites is the impatient drivers who will pass anyone in front of them including a snowplow. It makes me wonder if it ever crossed their mind that the roads might be in a little better condition behind the plow instead of in front of it. Ah yes, Northern Michigan, in the winter where men are men and women are too. However, the sobering thought is it’s only December and there is plenty more winter well beyond the time I...

HOMEWARD BOUND ANIMAL SHETLER
Homeward Bound. She has a nice selection of tags to choose from. A name tag could very well be your pet’s ticket home. You can help your pet, as well as the pets at the shelter. Our Sleighbell raffle was a success. We would like to thank Corky at Reusch’s for all their help, as well as the donors of the great prizes. The winners were Don Olsewski who won first place, a beautiful diamond ring donated anonymously; Annie Hunt who won second place, a charter fishing trip donated by Hamilton Charter and Karen Roberts won third prize, a watch donated by Reusch Jewelry. Congratulations to them and thanks to all who bought a ticket. Did you know that if you donate pet food to the shelter and take it to Parkdale Animal Hospital, they will match it? Pound for pound, can for can. This has been a huge blessing for us. Thanks to them and those of you who have brought food to them or to the shelter. We have not had to buy dog food in more than a year.

SOCKED BY THE SNOW
A LOOK BACK AT THE SEASON’S FIRST BIG SNOWSTORM
Maple Street in Manistee was covered with snow Sunday morning — and pretty slippery. (AT LEFT) The wet, windy snow that hit Saturday night plastered everything, including road signs, with a layer of the stuff. (BELOW) The bushes in front of the Dempsey House on Maple Street in Manistee normally “weep” a bit, but the heavy snow helped them sag even more than usual.
PHOTOS BY DAVE YARNELL NEWS ADVOCATE
Many limbs (ABOVE) were down in Manistee, and throughout the county, sometimes bringing power lines with them. This is on Sycamore Street in Manistee.
Come Celebrate the Advent Season and the Birth of Our Savior Jesus Christ
The Catholic Community of Manistee invites you and your family to celebrate with us this Blessed Christmas Season. Do you know that God has chosen you for this time and in this community? He has need of y and so do we, to help spread the Gospel you, l me ic message of His Son, Jesus Christ. The Catholic Community of Manistee is a community of believers striving for a more spiritual and prayerful relationship with God. Over the years some of our brothers and sisters in the Manistee area have moved, drifted, or walked away from regular Sunday worship with us and have left the Catholic Church. This fact saddens us and we miss your presence with us. This Advent and Christmas Season we invite you to come home! Come home and once again celebrate the Catholic beliefs of your youth and join with us in the participation of the Holy Sacriﬁce of the Mass. It is our fervent prayer that you will want to share this experience of God’s love for all of us. Come and worship with us and re-discover God’s love, truth and grace as witnessed and practiced in the Catholic Church.

student of the month. He pushes himself to do the best he can academically. Warner wants to get an ‘A,’ but more importantly, he wants to fully understand the subject matter. I am truly appreciative of his dedication and integrity.” Bigalke, a senior at Manistee Catholic, is the daughter of Joseph and Jan Bigalke of Manistee. She has a 4.0 grade point average and has been involved in Quiz Bowl, Science Olympiad, cheerleading, basketball, track and field, volleyball, softball, Relay for Life, Las Posadas, band, National Honor Society, Youth Advisory Council, Washington Group and more. On her nomination form for the award, she wrote, “In life, I am always trying to challenge myself and try new things. I want to reach the outer limits, experience new possibilities, and do as much as I can with whatever opportunities I have placed before myself. After graduation ... I want to continue to stay involved, go outside my comfort zone and continue to take chances with new things. I want to discover what I can be.” Etheridge, also a senior at Manistee Catholic, is the daughter of Dean and Janet Etheridge of Manistee. She has a 4.0 grade point average and has been a teacher’s aide and a member of the Washington Group and the softball, volleyball and basketball teams. In nominating her for the award, teacher Maria Bennett wrote, “ ... her accomplishments demonstrate her dependability, service, and leadership. Academically ... she goes beyond the basic coursework and takes classes from our college prep program and at the local community college. She is very thorough in her assignments and works very hard to complete projects in a timely manner. Brooke is committed to her academic success, her school through such things as extracurricular and sports involvement, and her spiritual and moral growth with her dedication to her faith and community and by her willingness to share herself with those in need.” Payne is a senior at Manistee High School and the son of Randall and Julie Payne of Manistee. He carries a 3.96 grade point average and has been a member of the National Honor Society, National Youth Leadership Forum on Law and CSI, his class president, a student mentor, and a member of the football, track, basketball and wrestling teams. MHS teacher Joe Hendges, in nominating Payne for the award, wrote, “It is with great delight that I write this letter as Zak has proven to be one of the finest student athletes we’ve had here at MHS. He is the type of student that, because of having him here, our school is a better school than it was four years ago when he walked through the doors for the first time. Soon it will be time for Zak to go on to do great things everywhere like he has done here, and he will be missed.”
