Engler to keynote annual Republican breakfast

From Staff Reports MOUNT PLEASANT — Former Michigan Gov. John Engler and U.S. Rep. Dave Camp, R-Midland, will be featured speakers at the Fourth District Republican Committee’s annual spring breakfast, to be held Monday at Buck’s Run Golf Club in Mount Pleasant. The breakfast will run from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Tickets are $50 per person. This is the largest fundraiser for Fourth District Committee, with about 300 guests expected to attend. To RSVP or request additional information, call (989) 708-7683 or e-mail ryan.tarrantmi@yahoo. com. Gala. Artworks Gala... is May 20 BIG RAPIDS — Many know fictional British spy James Bond as a tuxedo-wearing man of mystery, who enjoys an active social life and the occasional dry vodka martini, ... shaken, not stirred. Local supporters of the arts will have the opportunity to enjoy an evening of Bond-esque elegance and excitement — minus the dangerous explosions and megalomaniacs bent on world domination — at Artworks’ annual gala.

Nearly 30 donated items will go to the highest bidder during the live auction, including an iPad 2, Blu-ray/DVD player, an overnight golf getaway for two at Manistee National Golf and Resort, items made by Artworks artists, a twonight stay for two at Opossum Creek Retreat in Lansing, W.Va., a Traverse City getaway for four, Pioneer “Editor for a Day,” dinner for a year at the Blue Cow Cafe, a wine-lovers basket, a steak and lobster dinner for eight and a charter fishing trip for six. In keeping with the event’s 007-theme, a James Bond poster autographed by the actors who have played the character in the movies — including Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, George Lazenby and Pierce Brosnan — and actors who played supporting roles and love interests — including Dame Judy Dench, Jane Seymour, Sean Bean and Richard “Jaws” Kiel — will be up for auction. New to the annual fundraiser is a second silent auction held at Artworks. Fifteen items are up for bid in Artworks’ gift shop through May 18. “Most of the items that are in the silent auction here, are works from local artists,” Morgan said. “We’re hoping to drum up some support that way for people who can’t make it to the gala. It also brings people into Artworks to see what we’re all about and spread the word about the gala.”

Raffle” are available at Artworks and online, at www. artworksinbigrapids.com. The winner will receive $1,000 in Downtown Dollars and a $500 Meijer gift card. Ticket are available for $5 each. Tickets for the gala are available for $50 per person at Artworks and its website. Tables of eight can be reserved for $400. For more information about the gala and auction, contact Artworks at (231) 796-2420. Chippewa Hills to host hypnotist as softball fundraiser REMUS – Comedy stage hypnotist Joseph Gelina will appear at Chippewa Hills High School at 6:30 p.m. on May 20 to perform in a fundraiser for the schools’ girls softball team. Gelina, a certified hypnotist, has performed at corporate events, comedy venues and many high schools nationwide. He also is the author of self-help audio hypnosis programs ranging from weight loss to smoking cessation. Audience members at the family-friendly show may expect to see willing volunteers rapidly hypnotized and offered suggestions. Some of Gelina’s favorite suggestions include turning himself invisible and turning volunteers into celebrity impersonators. Tickets are $5 per student or $7 per adult in advance, or may be purchased for $8.00 at the door. Proceeds will benefit the school’s softball team.

Hybrid Cars: The Performance Cars of the Future (NewsUSA) - When most people think of hybrid cars, they imagine practical, mild-mannered vehicles. But could we someday see hybrid racecars burning up the tracks? In March of 2010, Porsche (www. porsche.com/usa/) unveiled three hybrids at the Geneva Auto Show: one for the road; one for the race track; and one that is a genuine Porsche supercar. These innovative new Porsches -- the Cayenne S Hybrid, the 911 GT3 R Hybrid and the 918 Spyder -- show that hybrids can be sporty, fast and powerful. The Cayenne S, Porsche’s first production hybrid car, features a sophisticated parallel full hybrid system with the combined power of a 380 horsepower V6 combustion engine and an electric motor. The car has the potential to significantly enhance fuel economy at high speeds -- when the driver lifts off the accelerator at cruising or highway speeds, the gasoline engine can be switched off and disengaged from the drivetrain. This enables the vehicle to move without combustion or electric power.

Connie Freiberg, owner of the Artworks hosts its 10th annual Blue Cow Cafe, has donated Spring Gala and Auction, “From items for the annual auction for Artworks with Love” event 6 to 10 several years. She supports p.m. on May 20 to at the Holiday Artworks because it provides Inn and Conference Center in a variety or quality programs Big Rapids. and helps make Big Rapids a destination for art. “This is a recognition of arts in the area and the people “I try to come up with something who support them,” said Mary interesting to do for the Artworks Morgan, manager of Artworks’ gala because it is one of my gift shop. “The gala is a major favorite organizations,” Freiberg fundraiser for Artworks. ... said. “(Artworks) doesn’t just Whatever people bid to purchase serve a small group of artists, those donated items at the it serves everybody in the auction, goes into our coffers, community.

The GT3 R’s innovative hybrid technology has been developed especially for racing. The front axle features two powerful electric motors that supplement the car’s 480 horsepower, naturally aspirated four-liter flatsix that drives the rear wheels. Instead of the heavy batteries found in hybrid road cars, an electrical flywheel power generator resides next to the driver to deliver energy to the electric motors. The 911 GT3 R Hybrid competed in the 24 Hours on the Nordschleife of Nürburgring in May 2010, leading for eight hours before retiring

after 22 hours and 15 minutes for mechanical reasons. In the 2010 Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta it finished 18th out of a starting field of 41 cars. With the 918 Spyder highperformance mid-engine concept hybrid sports car, Porsche is displaying its expertise in the field of highly efficient and lowemission drive technology. The 918 Spyder prototype with plugin hybrid technology combines high-tech performance features with electric mobility to produce a fascinating range of qualities. It has an ultra-compact car’s emission levels of 70 grams of CO2 per kilometer, and it consumes just three liters of fuel per 100 kilometers, but can go from 0 to 62 mph in just under 3.2 seconds and reach a top track speed over 198 mph. DeVry University Seniors Learn There’s Value in Pro Bono Work (NewsUSA) - Despite conventional wisdom, the axiom “You don’t get something

for nothing” isn’t always true. It seems particularly untrue when college students provide communities with services on a pro bono or discounted basis in an effort to gain necessary experience. For example, many dental schools have their students provide check-ups to children from low-income communities who don’t have a dentist. There are law schools that encourage students to offer pro bono legal services in the community to nonprofit organizations and lowincome individuals who are in need. Students nearing graduation at DeVry University leave a positive mark on the regional community and provide a pro bono service through their Senior Project course. During a six-month period, students are charged with identifying a project through a process that asks them to examine a local business or technical problem in the organizational context, develop a set of possible solutions and

then select and implement the best solution. In one DeVry University Senior Projects class, teams selected either the Inglis Foundation, an organization devoted to providing independence to the physically disabled, or the New Brunswick Education Foundation, a project focused on helping nonprofit organizations extend their reach within the community. Both teams implemented the management, technology and business concepts they learned in the classroom to improve the respective organizations’ internal processes and increase fundraising. “Senior Projects provide DeVry University students with the opportunity to contribute to the community while applying technical and business knowledge acquired in the classroom to real-world situations,” said Forough Ghahramani, associate dean of DeVry University’s College of Business & Management.

Elsewhere, local organizations partner with colleges to provide much-needed services to local residents. The Piton Foundation, a private foundation that helps lowincome families in Colorado move out of poverty, offers free tax-filing services for qualifying families through its TaxHelp Colorado program. This year the foundation partnered with a DeVry University campus to help prepare returns. To be qualified to participate, the students trained for a month and passed the IRS certification test. “The services that DeVry University students provide are instrumental in effectively helping us serve the local community and help families collect their earned tax refunds,” said Diane DiGiacomo, communications director for the Piton Foundation. and help families collect their earned tax refunds,” said Diane DiGiacomo, communications director for the Piton Foundation.

You have choices in advertising. Let us help you choose wisely.
AM? FM? HD? Satellite? CD? MP3? Your customers have lots of choices when deciding what to listen to. When you need to reach those customers you could choose radio. But should you choose AM, FM, HD, or Satellite? Then which format should you choose: Adult Contemporary, Smooth Jazz, Rock, Hip Hop, Country, Classical, News, Talk, Urban, Oldies, Latin, Religious, or Sports? Once you’ve chosen the medium and the format you’ll need to select the right stations. How many stations do you listen to? Do your customers listen to the same ones? Do you need a 30 or 60 second spot?

2003 Airstream 22’ International CCD $24,500
Call (231)592-8352
This beautiful camper is in excellent condition – used sparingly since bought new. Only one owner. Sleeps 2-3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children. Comes with sway bar, heavy duty hitch, electric jack, and level. Has a wet bathroom, desk, dinette, full kitchen with refrigerator, stove, oven, and many cabinets for storage. Everything works perfectly and is very clean. Has propane heat with a thermostat, air conditioner, and electronic panel for checking fresh, gray, and black water levels. Is approximately 6000-6500lbs when fully loaded. Tows beautifully, you'll forget it's back there. The International CCD is the higher end of the Airstream trailers, so this trailer is built to last and has beautiful finishes. More photos available upon request.
