Newaygo County
Mental Health staff
raises funds for local
organizations
Just before Christmas, board mem-
bers and staff of Newaygo CMH sat down
to enjoy a holiday lunch. This was no or-
dinary lunch. Those staff and board mem-
bers brought items to auction to raise
funds for TrueNorth Community Services
and Love, Inc. The items included every-
thing from cookies to a guided fshing trip
to a wall mirror.
The room was packed with eager bid-
ders, and at times, the bidding was like
watching a tennis match. All participants
had a great time before returning to work.
By the end of the fun and food, $3,000
was collected which will be split between
TrueNorth Community Services and
Love, Inc.
“Love, Inc., and TrueNorth provide
food and other resources to many of
the people we serve,” said Mike Hamm,
NCMH board chair. “It was time for us to
give back to help restock the depleted food
resources and other needs they meet.”
“We are astounded and proud of the
generosity of our staff. They gave items,
dollars, and energy all to give to those
agencies we work so closely with on a
day-to-day basis and who help those we
serve. Our hope is that these dollars will
help put more food in the cupboards and
help the residents of Newaygo County in
need.” Greg Snyder, Executive Director of
Newaygo CMH stated, “Newaygo County
Mental Health wishes to thank all com-
munity partners for their wonderful ser-
vice to the residents of this county. Also,
thank you to all those we serve for your
continued trust. This is a great county to
live in and serve.”

New owners
The Crystal Fountain restaurant
in Blanchard has reopened under new
owners, Dale Olger and Mendy Keim.
Dale and Mendy are both long time resi-
dents of the Blanchard area and knew
that no one wanted the restaurant to
close.
“We wanted to take care of people in
the area,” Mendy said.
Dale had been eating at the res-
taurant for 30 years and he especially
didn’t want the restaurant to close. Dale
and Mendy feel blessed that the excel-
lent staff will be staying with them.
“They hadn’t found new jobs yet.
The staff is excited. They just wanted
their jobs back,” Dale said.
Crystal Fountain restaurant will now
be providing great service and great
food seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 7
p.m. Breakfast will be served all day and
daily specials will be offered. They plan
on keeping the same menu but are using
fresh, locally-grown meat daily.
So, come on up, sit down, have a
seat and enjoy some home cooking
at the Crystal Fountain restaurant in
Blanchard. Call (989) 562-2212 and
have your order ready when you get
there ... you’ll feel like you were going
home.

The week leading up to Howard City Winterfest
2012 is designated as International Snowmobile

ommended for all snowmobile operators. In the
state of Michigan you must successfully complete a
snowmobile safety course if you are:
n A person who is at least
12 but less 17 years of age oper-
ating a snowmobile without di-
rect supervision of a person 21
years of age or older must have
in their immediate possession
a valid snowmobile safety cer-
tifcate. A person who is at least 12 but less than 17
years of age may not cross a highway or street with-
out having a valid snowmobile safety certifcate in
their immediate possession.
Many people in Michigan look forward to enjoy-
ing the outdoor activity of snowmobiling. There is
responsibility that comes with riding snowmobiles
that are capable of high rates of speed. Training is
an important factor in safe and responsible snow-
mobile operating.
The West Michigan Snow Runners snowmobile
club, in cooperation with Howard City Winterfest,
is offering a safety course on Saturday, Jan. 21. The

CARSON CITY — The frst baby
to be born at Carson City Hospital
(CCH) made a grand entrance at
10:21 p.m. on Jan. 5. Kristen Bar-
ber and Jesse DeWald of Crystal are
the proud parents of Lila DeWald,
weighing six pounds and 12 ounces
at birth.
CCH staff presented the Barber-
DeWald family with a gift basket
full of baby items donated by several
hospital departments and communi-
ty businesses, including: the Carson
Apothecary and Gift Shoppe, Michi-
gan One Community Credit Union,
Lola’s Flower Garden, Alley-T, Carson
Village Market, Barnes Hardware,
the Center for Women’s HealthCare,
and hospital departments: Volunteer
Services, Pediatric and Adolescent
Specialists, and Public Relations.
“We were surprised to have the
frst baby born at CCH. We thought
there would have been at least one
other baby born here before Lila,”
said Barber.
Lila was delivered by Dr. Erin
LeGrand of the Center for Women’s
HealthCare. “It was such a pleasure
to be a part of this exciting moment
for our hospital and the Barber-De-
Wald family,” said Dr. LeGrand.
“They have a beautiful baby. We are
very happy when we have a healthy
little baby and happy parents. There
is always something special about
the frst baby that is born in the new
year.”
For more information about CCH,
please visit online at www.CarsonC-
ityHospital.com or visit the hospital’s
page on Facebook.
Preparation for any outdoor event can be a
challenge, but an especially big challenge when it’s
Winterfest, and there isn’t any snow yet.
The Winterfest Committee wants to make sure
that everyone knows there are events to be attend-
ed even without snow. Beginning with the fsh fry
at the VFW post on Thursday evening, to Friday
evening at Zellie’s Opry House with Friday Night
fun and Latitudes entertainment tent with food
and fun. No snow needed.
Saturday holds many events that do not depend
upon the white stuff. There is the warming fre, kids
playing at the obstacle course, and fort building
(with non snow blocks.). There will be a bed race
on casters, bowling using balls, vintage snowmo-
bile show and swap meet. No snow needed. Euche
and Roy Rill’s art show is at the VFW post, viewing
and auctioning the business’ decorated snowman
cutouts, all not dependent upon snow. The lug nut
race and tire toss at PEN’s Auto Repair will be a fun
new event. The penguins will still race, the treasure
dig will be held and the food vendor will still sell
goodies.
So, plan on attending the third annual Winter-
fest Jan. 19-21, downtown and around town, How-
ard City. For a full schedule of events, visit www.
panhandlechamber.com.
Oh. Oh.
Where’s
the snow?

Freedom is not
free
TO THE EDITOR:
I am writing this letter to
thank all the people that have
supported me and my family and
the other families that our super-
visor and his board have chosen
to persecute. It is nice to feel the
community’s support everywhere
I go.
You may recall, a month or so
ago, a letter to the editor in re-
gards to property I have been us-
ing to store materials on and off
for nearly 30 years. I recently pur-
chased property from my father-
in-law with the idea of continuing
to grow my business and neither
of the past two township supervi-
sors had an issue with doing this.
However, my attorney has stated
to me that I had a small chance of
winning in court on Dec. 1. I have,
over the past three years, tried to
resolve this situation and had even
agreed to allow the township to
rezone the property any way they
wanted to. Our township supervi-
sor, Keith Grannis, and our then
zoning administrator, Bob Dolan,
said they could do this at no cost
to me. They stated it would take
some time and I stated that it was
fne with me as long as I am not
getting a citation. Keith assured
me in that meeting there would be
no citations given and they would
move forward with the rezoning. I
shook both their hands and stated
to them, “So we are all set then
and everything is settled.” Shortly
after this meeting our township
supervisor, I assume he may have
had the support of the board, fred
Bob Dolan and hired yet another
zoning administrator, his third
one since taking offce. It seems I
am not the only one who cannot
get along with the supervisor.
Well, as you have read, I have
received six citations from the
township and was scheduled to
go to court on Dec. 1, so much for
the word of the supervisor and a
handshake. If he makes a state-
ment contrary to what I have
written he is an outright liar.
If the judge would have ruled
in their favor, I would be forced
to pay citations and move my
stockpiles to a new location. I
have been invited to other town-
ships and am strongly consider-
ing these options. This would of
course mean more tax revenue
leaving Reynolds Township. I be-
lieve Reynolds Township supervi-
sor, clerk and at least two board
members have declared war on
me and my family. We have cho-
sen to concede our property rights
on the south side of M-82, as my
attorney suggested, but I can as-
sure you we will win the war in
the end, for us and others, to re-
gain our personal property rights.
I have spent a lot of my family’s
money trying to preserve my
property rights, but these people
who think they are going to dic-
tate every, single thing you can do
on your own property will lose in
the end. I am considering starting
a group called, “Citizens for Per-
sonal Property Rights.”
If you are interested please
call my offce at (231) 937-5014,
cell (616) 813-0316 or e-mail at
powells@oneisp.net.
Remember, freedom is not
free.

Refinancing or selling. Perhaps you’re
planning to sell your home? February is the
best month to list your home because people
have more time to shop in the winter, and they
want to buy, close and move in before the
good summer play weather comes. They also
want to get the first crack at new listings. Or
maybe you’re considering refinancing. Now
is an excellent time to refinance. Most experts
are not expecting interest rates to drop much
more, if at all. And some think the first part of
2012 will bring small increases in most lenders’
home loan rates before leveling out by summer
again.
The necessary appraisal. If you’re selling, your
buyers will probably need a home mortgage
loan for part of the purchase price. Their lender
will want an appraisal of your home showing
it’s worth 75-80% or more of the loan amount.
Refinancing involves the same type of appraisal.
Typically your financial institution will loan you
75% of your home’s value in a refinance, 80%
in select cases of better-than-excellent credit.
You can help. The MSN networks, several
online news ‘stations’, and the realtors’
associations have recently shared things you
should do before having the appraisal done,
things you can do at almost no cost, to maximize
your homes’ value. I’m listing them in order of
most often mentioned:
Clean inside. Clean the carpeting, wash the
crayon off the walls. Clean and wax the floors.
Dust and wax the furniture. Wash throws. Wash
comforters. Put away all clothing. Clean sinks
and toilets. No food out except that lovely bowl
of fruit on the kitchen table.
Clean outside. Remove all the plastic toys,
extra bicycles, toy wagons, dog food bowls.
Cut back tall hedges. Mow, or shovel the snow
way back.
Clear the clutter. Put the books on their shelves,
toys in the toy boxes, shoes in the closet, toaster
in the cupboard, makeup in a drawer.
List your improvements. Make a list of all
the improvements you made. For example:
Replaced shingles on rear side; new insulation;
replaced toilets with water-savers – everything
you’ve done in 15 years.
List nearby sales. Homes sold-by-owner would
not show on the appraiser’s multiple listing
service. Find out what those homes sold for.
Give the appraiser a list.
Peeling Paint. For whatever reason, peeling
paint peeves potential purchasers. Scrape it off.
Give it two new coats – even just spot repair
helps.
Bright lights, bright rooms. Window treatments
open. Show the house in the daytime. Make sure
all the lights work.
Working utilities. The toilets have to flush,
taps work, no drips under the sink.
Handrails. Wherever there are stairs, inside
and out, appraisers expect firm handrails.
Leave. Leave the appraiser alone. Have
questions? Leave the appraiser alone. Need
information? Leave the appraiser alone. You’ve
done your part – Let her do hers.
One last important thing. When you receive
a buyer’s offer, have your lawyer look it over
before you sign it. I’d say that more than
1 in 4 people will save money by getting
an experienced real estate lawyer’s help in
evaluating any buyer’s offer. Do it before you
sign, because once you’ve signed, there’s no
going back.

Greenville Fifth
Graders Participate in
Mini Medical School
GREENVILLE – On Thursday, Jan. 12
and Thursday, Jan. 19, ffth graders within
the Greenville Public School system will
experience something few – if any- 10 and
11 year olds do – performing surgery.
The Mini Medical School lasts approx-
imately four weeks. During the frst few
weeks, students build replica body frames
and organs out of everyday materials, such
as clay, pipe cleaners and Paper Mache.
The ffth graders are assisted by parent
volunteers, school nurses and art teachers
to complete their human creations. The
Mini Medical School concludes with sur-
gical staff from Spectrum Health United
Hospital in Greenville coming into the
school setting and coaching students in
performing mock surgeries on the replica
bodies.
For more information, please con-
tact Jennifer DenOuden, Director of
Marketing & Communications, at (616)

Zellie’s Opry House
welcomes the Midnight
Cattle Callers on Satur-
day, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m.
Seth and Dee Sutton
(that cute couple who
appeared at last year’s
Old Fashioned Opry
Show) are hitting the
stage with their vintage
band, the Midnight
Cattle Callers.
The Midnight Cattle
Callers boast tradition-
al sounding country
drenched in western
swing--toss in a little
1940s sound, a little
Bennie Goodman, a lit-
tle Dixieland and you’ve
got an evening of lively
entertainment.
Joining the Sutton
duo is the critically ac-
claimed guitarist Roger
Brown, who has worked
with Ringo Starr, Fred-
dy Fender and Jerry
Rafferty, among oth-
ers. Brown was also a
founding member of
the popular 70’s group,
Stealer’s Wheel. Brown
has toured throughout the world and
has appeared at numerous interna-
tional festivals. Joining Brown on stage
is Indiana fddler, Sean Hoffman, who
has also toured throughout the U.S.
and Europe with the popular Goldmine
Pickers. Adding to the vintage sound
from the 50’s and 60’s is clarinetist,
Keith Hudson, a member of the Grand
Rapids Symphonic Band. Local musi-
cian Luke Gitchel rounds out the group
adding banjo and mandolin.
It’s WinterFest weekend in Howard
City, so c’mon on in where the music
will be sizzlin’ and swingin’ hot. Zellie’s
doors will open at 6 p.m., pre-show
with the Zellie’s Opry House Band at
6:10 p.m., Midnight Cattle Callers at 7
p.m. Tickets are available for the “low
dough show” price of just $5/ea. Addi-
tional information is available at www.
zelliesopryhouse.com or (616) 260-
3032.

Congratulations to Bridget Inman and Hailey Small on their first place
finishes in the Voice of Democracy Contest. The Voice of Democracy is
sponsored by the local Veterans of Foreign War Post 3306. This year Mrs.
Simmons' speech classes wrote and performed their speeches before submitting
them to the contest. Hailey and
Bridget submitted a written
and oral essay on the topic,
"Is There Pride in Serving in
our Military?" They both have
received $100 for finishing
first and will be honored at
a banquet on January 7 in
St. Louis, Michigan. Other
winners were: second place
($75) Nicole Newell and Kayla
Vos; third place($50) Natasha
Azure and Steven Rainwater.
The Kent Theatre will play host to a student written and directed play
by the talented Tri County senior, Shayna Gross, in collaboration with the
Tri County Theatre Group. Her clever comedy is titled "Two Idiots and a
Cheat."
Both Shayna Gross, the Kent Theatre and the Tri County Theatre Group
have worked together for the past four years to present performances of
horror, family comedy, British Classics and now a sure fire hit, a political
satire, targeting the foibles and follies of those seeking office. Each scene
presents the characters in a light in which they need display their charm and
wit, which may or may not add a positive tone to their political aspirations.
Nevertheless, they never fail to amuse. Even if politics puts a pit your
stomach, Shayna Gross' quick-witted humor will surely fill it with laughter.
The performance dates & times: January 19, 20 and 21: 7:00 p.m. There will
also be a matinee performance January 21 at 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 with
student identification and $10 for all other seats.

The Winter Blues, Cabin Fever, SAD
Humans are mammals. Many mammal species “hibernate” for the winter. This means that everything in the body
slows down to conserve energy to get through until spring. In nature, this is seen in bears, bats, raccoons and many
others. Ancient man did the same. They would gather food and fatten up all summer and then they would hole up
in a lodge, cave, or earth dwelling to survive the winter, only going out if they absolutely had to for survival. There,
they did a lot of sleeping. Although it is fiction, Jane Auel’s books, Clan of the Cave Bear and the rest of her “Children
of the Earth” series, depict some of this winter activity of our pre-historic relatives. In our culture, we often do the
opposite of nature. We slim down in the summer because we are more active and fatten up in the winter. And instead
of listening to our body, we push on through, working and taking care of life, often not getting enough sleep.
As a result of the natural, genetic, biological cycles, many of us begin to feel the slow down by January or February.
The Psychiatrists and scientists have named this Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or Seasonal Depression. This simply
means some people get a “little nuts” by mid winter. The big boys want us to take medications like Prozac and Paxil,
and sometimes that is necessary.
But, there are many other things to do first. At least eight hours of sleep per day, sometimes more, are needed in
the winter (10pm to 6am is ideal). You must get some sunshine. Actual sunshine is the best. Even a week spent in the
sunny south in February can totally recharge our sunlight battery, so things do not look so bleak. Sunshine penetrates
the skull and stimulates the pineal gland in the brain. This increases the production of melatonin which is one of the
serotonin neurotransmitters. If you cannot go south, sit with your head in the sun whenever we do get a sunny day.
In the absence of sunshine, tanning may help, as long as you do not burn and peel. One can also buy a full spectrum
lamp or install full spectrum fluorescent tubes in your work area to simulate sunlight. If you do
get a lamp, place it directly over your head, and sit under it for two to four hours per day.
Supplements like 5 HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophane [this is what is in turkey that makes some
people sleepy]) can be very useful. Taken at bedtime it helps improve sleep. It is converted into
serotonin, the mood elevator. For some, St. John’s Wort is quite good for dealing with the Winter
Blues. Vitamin D3 is highly beneficial. Most of us are deficient in Vitamin D and supplementation
with 2000-4000 mg per day is recommended if you do not get any sunshine. Homeopathic
Aurum Mur. Nat. 12 C, one pellet once or twice per day had been a great help for many.
Exercise is highly important to balance the chemistry and remove sluggish waste products
from the body. Do something fun! Find a fun winter activity that will balance out the blues. Make
your own sunshine.

at the time of adoption. Male cats are 70.00 which includes FVRCP vaccine as well as
a rabies vaccine and the neuter Surgery. Females are $75.00 which includes all of the
above. In some cases an animal may need extra treatment such as for ear mites or fleas or
an injury, in that case the adoption price may be more.
Have lots of love but not a
lot of room?
Volunteers are always appreciated!
Little Bitsy was found as a stray
and if her owners do not claim
her she will be in need of a good
home. She is a very small little
dog so for her safety, we need
to find her a family without
small children. She seems to do
well with other dogs and enjoys
sitting on any open lap. She will
make a great apartment dog or
a good dog for someone look-
ing for a close companion. She
will be available for adoption
on Jan. 11th, stop in and meet
her today!
e currently have many healthy, loving dogs, and
cats available for adoption. Go to our site
www.montcalm.petfinder.com
to view the wide variety of animals that are waiting for you
to take them home.

In Michigan in 2010 there were 55,867
reported car-deer crashes with 11 mo-
torists killed and 1,277 injured. About
80 percent of all car-deer crashes take
place on two-lane roads between dusk
and dawn. (Of the reported car-deer
accidents Kent County is number one
and Montcalm County is number six in
the state’s highest accident rate).
What can you do?
• Stay aware, awake, alert, and sober.
• Remember, safety belts are your best
defense in any collision.
• Be alert for deer in spring and fall,
especially at dawn and dusk.
• Heed deer crossing and speed limit
signs, particularly on two-lane roads.
If a crash is unavoidable:
• Don’t swerve!
• Brake firmly
• Hold on to the steering wheel.
• Stay in your lane.
• Bring your vehicle to a controlled stop.
We at Hill’s Body Shop have noticed an increase in deer hits in the month of October through December
and a big surge directly after the end of Daylight Savings, because more people are still on the road at
sunset.
If you have had the misfortune of hitting a deer, Hill’s Body Shop, Inc. is here to help restore your ve-
hicle to its pre-accident condition. Your insurance company may refer you to one of their “preferred”
repair facilities. These body shops have an agreement with your insurance company to keep down the
cost of your vehicle repair in exchange for referrals. We believe it’s not in your best interest to take
your vehicle to these contracted repair shops. We believe safety and quality should come before cost,
whereas these “preferred” shops seem to put cost before quality and safety. We believe it to be unethi-
cal to cheapen your vehicle repair to save your insurance company money. You’re our customer, not
your insurance company’s. Hill’s Body Shop, Inc. has always and will always provide the finest repairs
available.
For more information about what you can do to avoid a car-deer accident and what to do if you do have
a car-deer accident, please visit our website http://www.hillsbodyshop.com/
