Experts: State’s recession is over Unemployment rate in Mecosta County has dropped 3 percent in past year
LANSING — New government figures released Tuesday show what many economic experts have suspected: Michigan’s deep recession is over.

pace is uncertain. Recent national slowdowns in auto sales, manufacturing and hiring have raised fears of a double-dip recession. But many economists caution that the hiccups are caused by temporary problems, such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and high gas prices. They expect the economic recovery to regain momentum. Michigan’s economic growth this year could range from 1.9 percent to 3 percent. “It’s going to be a slow recovery,” Grimes said. In 2010, Michigan’s real gross domestic product – the value of goods and services produced in the state, adjusted for inflation – totaled $345 billion, up from $335 billion in 2009. But the state’s economy still has a ways to go to make up for losses this past decade, when 857,000 jobs were eliminated. Michigan’s economy is 7 percent smaller than it was in 2000, with the number of employed people down 17 percent, according to Charles Ballard, an economics professor at Michigan State University. And it’s no secret that the state’s unemployment rate is still stuck in the double digits. And the housing crisis shows few signs of abating soon. “Technically we’re in recovery because the economy is growing,” Ballard said. “But for a lot of people, as long as you are below where you were, you are still in a recession.” Much of the growth in Michigan’s economy last year can be traced to the recovery under way at the Detroit automakers and their suppliers, which have been hiring thousands of workers and ramping up production. Durable goods manufacturing – including auto production – accounted for 1.5 percent of the 2.9 percent increase in the state’s real GDP. Other key growth industries for the state were wholesale and retail trade and the manufacturing of nondurable items such as food. Industries that shrank the most last year were real estate and government. Michigan is not an anomaly. Durable goods manufacturing also led the nation’s economic recovery last year, according to the BEA. On the flip side, the construction industry continues to be a drag on the U.S. economy, declining for the sixth consecutive year. Like Michigan’s, the U.S. economy returned to growth last year. It expanded by 2.6 percent, after shrinking by 0.3 percent in 2008 and by 2.5 percent in 2009. Last year, North Dakota had the fastest growing state economy, with a 7.1 percent increase in real GDP. Wyoming brought up the rear, with its economy contracting by 0.3 percent after leading the nation with a hefty 9.8 percent gain in 2009. The only other state with a shrinking economy was Nevada, which saw its real GDP fall by 0.2 percent.

they continue their education while juggling personal, family and financial responsibilities. The good news is that there are many tips and resources available to help ease stress and make balancing work and school manageable. 1. Capitalize on flexible class scheduling. An increasing number of colleges and universities are tailoring education to suit working students’ schedules. DeVry University, for example, offers flexible scheduling in a “mix and match” format that allows students to enroll in a combination of onsite or online courses during the day or evening, based on convenience. 2. Make a schedule and stay organized. A calendar that outlines upcoming work and school projects, meetings and deadlines takes little time to create and can make a busy schedule feel under control. “Time management is an essential quality and core competency for most professionals, and this will be a good test of one’s mettle,” explained Jeffrey Greenberg, director of career services for DeVry University. “This skill gets easier over time and will ensure that your work does not pile up, preventing you from meeting deadlines.” 3. Address your stress. The weight of multiple obligations can be overwhelming. It’s important to take breaks to obtain a fresh perspective. Exercise and social interaction provide the perfect opportunity to relieve stress and refocus your thoughts, allowing you to return to coursework with a clear mind and renewed sense of energy. 4. Take advantage of your school’s resources. The network of classmates and professors your school offers can provide support and advice for balancing work and school. The economic recession has led many schools to launch career services departments or strengthen existing ones. 5. Create a support network. Harness the support of friends and family, and see if they can help you accomplish your goals. This support could be something as simple as meeting with a roommate to plan household chores or meals for the month. It is important to remember that the hard work and sacrifice required to balance work and school often lead to career success.

decrease your gas mileage and create excessive heat inside your tires. * When driving on sand, point your vehicle’s wheels straight ahead when starting off. This will help reduce the effort required by your vehicle to move forward. * If you get stuck in the sand, reverse out. Gently reverse on your own tracks and then try to slowly move forward again. Before trying to reverse out, remove sand build-up from behind the tires or under your vehicle. * Once you get home, remove all traces of sand, dirt or salt from your vehicle after a beach trip. When hosing your vehicle, pay special attention to areas like the mudguards and any other nooks and crannies where sand can get trapped. * Make sure to check your tire pressure on all four tires and your spare at least once per month and before every long trip. Be certain to keep them at the recommended pressure level. Firestone Complete Auto Care also realizes that rising gas prices might keep you and your family from embarking on a summer road trip to the seashore.

After two years of shrinking, the state’s economy grew 2.9 percent last year, faster than the national average of 2.6 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. That’s a dramatic turnaround from declines of 4.3 percent in 2008 and

5 percent in 2009. Last year, Michigan was the 15th fastest growing state in the country, a huge leap from its 48th spot in 2009. Michigan’s economy also expanded more rapidly than any other Great Lakes state except Indiana, which grew by 4.6 percent.

The increase in economic activity is being driven by the rebound in manufacturing of durable goods such as automobiles. This kind of bounce back normally occurs after a severe economic downturn, said University of Michigan economist Donald Grimes.

“We’re back to the future,” he said. “It’s a very good beginning to the recovery.”

In Mecosta County, manufacturers are gaining more confidence in the marketplace and creating more jobs after seeing increases in production orders, said Bill Mrdeza, executive director for the Mecosta County Development Corporation. Unemployment figures in the county are down to 10.1 percent in April 2011, compared to the same time last year at 13.4 percent in April 2010. “We now have a little more certainty to move forward,” Mrdeza said. “Companies that had to downsize in the last couple of years, are now settled into their place in the new economy and saying, ‘We can continue to be profitable and move forward to manufacturing levels that we haven’t seen recently.’ ... I think it’s a little early to rejoice, but I’m optimistic we’re heading in the right direction.” In Osceola County, unemployment has declined from 15.8 percent in April 2010 to 11.7 percent in April 2011 – the most recent month data was available.

Make Your Money Go the Extra Mile
(NewsUSA) - Is the cost of household items getting you down? During tough times, families are forced to cut their spending down to only the bare necessities. Yet, even the basic essentials can take a big bite out of a financial budget. The key to trimming your bottom line doesn’t mean skimping on necessities; it means saving money on them. So when shopping for your must-haves, make your dollar stretch even further with these money saving tips: Switch to LED lightbulbs. The electricity used over the lifetime of a single incandescent light bulb costs five to ten times the original purchase price of the bulb itself. LEDs last up to 10 times longer than the typical bulb, and although they’re more expensive than others, the cost is recouped over time and in battery savings. Invest in a water filter. Don’t like the taste of tap water, but spending wads of cash on bottled water? A quality water filter can cut the costs of your waterdrinking tremendously. A Brita filter costs around $20, but you must refill when it runs out. A family of four who drinks two gallons a day combined can save upwards of $2,500 a year by using a filter. Install a programmable thermostat. This handy device is a crucial addition to your long-term money-saving strategy. Ranging in price from $30 to $130, it allows you to automatically regulate your home’s temperature at certain times of the day. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save 10 percent on energy costs a year by setting your thermostat back 10-15 degrees for eight hours out of the day. Buy HP Ink. When stocking up on office supplies, make sure you’re getting the

As an MSU Extension educator heading up economic development in Osceola County, Dan Massy said he sees the reported unemployment decline, along with business openings this year – the PGW plant in Evart, the Hersey Roller Mills Store as well as several restaurants – and the construction of Yoplait’s milk process facility as indicators of an improved business climate. “Manufacturers, the ones that I have been dealing with, have said they’ve been more busy,” Massy added. The state’s economy returned to growth last year, with economic output expanding by nearly 3 percent, according to new figures released Tuesday by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). Whether the state can sustain this

Before Summer Fun, Make Sure Your Vehicle Can Handle the Heat
(NewsUSA) - If you ask anyone, whether it be your friends, your neighbors or your colleagues, all will tell you the best things about summer are the surf and the sun! For many of us, a day at the beach is like a minivacation, but if you’re not prepared, your lovely day trip can turn into your worst nightmare! The team at Firestone Complete Auto Care would like to offer the following tips to get you ready for your summer beach trips: * Make sure your vehicle’s fluids and filters are fresh and the air conditioner is working properly, as this will help keep your vehicle cool in the summer heat. * Avoid overloading your vehicle, as too much weight in the vehicle can

And while HP ink cartridges had no failures, the overall failure rate for the refilled cartridges was 72 percent, according to the study (http:// www.buyerslab.com/news/viewarticle. asp?article=74815). Companies like HP offer online options (www.shopping. hp.com/supplies) for purchasing new cartridges with ease. Additionally, ink cartridge recycling programs, such as HP Planet Partners (www.hp.com/ recycle), help reduce the environmental impact by diverting cartridges from landfills. Skip the grocery store. Amazon.com helps you save not only on books and movies, but groceries, too. It has a program called “Subscribe & Save,” where you can sign up to automatically receive grocery staples every one, two, three or six months. That bag of Splenda that costs $10 at your local grocery store is only $6 on Amazon and ships to your home for free -- saving you time, gas and money.

year from diarrheal diseases caused by contaminated water -- more than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined,” says Dr. Greg Allgood, director of P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program (CSDW), a non-profit organization focused on the critical, global need for clean, safe drinking water. Some organizations and companies, however, are stepping in to help. Pantene, the world’s leading hair care brand, has announced a charitable partnership with CSDW. Pantene launched Healthy Hair for Healthy Water (HHHW), a global program that supports CSDW in helping women, children and their communities access safe drinking water. The program hopes to prevent 20 million person-days of illness and save an estimated 2,500 lives by providing half a billion liters of clean drinking water every year by 2020. The Pantene HHHW initiative is part of Pantene’s ongoing commitment to making meaningful improvements in sustainability through its products, operations and social responsibility programs. Pantene is working toward creating innovative, beautiful products that are better for the environment, without trade-offs for consumers in performance, aesthetics or price. They expect to launch the HHHW program in several regions around the world over the next five years and are currently working toward the next introductions in Brazil and Indonesia. Consumers can participate by purchasing Pantene products from the

P&G eStore at www.pgestore.com/ Pantene/pantene,default,sc.html. For each bottle purchased from the eStore through February 28, 2011, Pantene will donate 10 cents to CSDW. Ten cents is enough to buy one PUR packet, which transforms contaminated water into clean water. Just one PUR packet can turn 10 liters of contaminated water into safe drinking water.

* Apply vitamin C. Your skin contains more vitamin C than any other antioxidant, including the muchtouted vitamin E. To keep vitamin C at an optimal level, make sure you are applying a skincare formula that contains plenty of vitamin C.

Tips to Put a Stop to Early Aging
(NewsUSA) - Dermatologists can’t stress it enough: How you treat your skin now will affect its future appearance. While it may seem silly to worry about wrinkles long before you have any, it’s true that preparation pays off. According to dermatologists, more women in their twenties are asking for anti-aging tips. So, what can you do keep your skin looking young and healthy? Kiehl’s Since 1851, a company that specializes in skin and hair care formulas derived from natural ingredients, offers the following tips: * Rest up. There’s a reason “you look tired” and “you look great” aren’t synonymous. But did you know that the position in which you sleep can also affect your looks? If you sleep facedown, fluid can collect beneath your eyes. Try sleeping face-up with your head slightly elevated with pillows. If you do wake up with facial swelling, try tapping the skin beneath your eyes or applying a cold compress.

“Vitamin C helps keep skin even and bright, and it offers potent antioxidant protection from environmental stressors, such as pollution and sunlight,” said Dr. Adam Geyer, fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, Instructor in Clinical Dermatology at Columbia University and Kiehl’s Brand Ambassador.

Safe Water Program Aims to Save Lives

Two of Kiehl’s products, “PowerfulStrength Line-Reducing Concentrate” to improve tone and texture all over the face and “Line-Reducing EyeBrightening Concentrate” formulated specifically for the eye area to boost radiance and minimize wrinkles, contain A 10.5 percent vitamin C. Unlike many c retinol products, they won’t cause e photosensitivity and irritation and are gentle enough for twice-daily use. Apply p t them after cleansing, both day and h night to obtain the greatest results.

(NewsUSA) - A growing crisis is threatening families every day as contaminated drinking water spreads contagions and diseases to households worldwide. But contaminated water is not only making people sick, it is also leading to early mortality.

c * Reduce your sodium intake. You can C make your doctor and your skin happy B e at the same time! When you eat too c

much sodium, you can cause your body to shift fluid into extracellular spaces, especially beneath your eyes. Avoid excess sodium intake to benefit both your health and your skin. For more information, visit www.kiehls. com.
