Ice Cream Shoppe
opens in Ensley Center
Auto repair and ice cream may not appear
to have much in common, but in Ensley Center
they now do. When the Woodard family of the
Ensley Center and Sand Lake area opened their
second family business this past weekend they
came together, but only slightly. The Woodards
have owned and operated B&T Car Sales and
Repair for the last 25 years. When they part-
nered with the Cason family to open a second
business next door, they went in a different di-
rection to say the least.
Shortys Ice Cream and Pizza, LLC is now
open from 1-9PM seven days a week, and offers
a wide variety of cool treats to beat the summer
heat. They are now serving traditional hard
and soft serve flavors, as well as flavor bursts,
flurries, shakes, and malts. Slushies, Glaciers,
and Ice Burgs are coming soon. They are also
hoping to expand even further and have pizza
available for carry out by late summer, or early
fall.
So whether you are out for a nice Sunday
drive, or heading to the lake stop by for a sweet
treat at 12024 Cypress Ave, Sand Lake or call,
(616) 636-5621. It is a great way to kick off the
summer.

Ensley Park and appeals to the community to come out
and support this event. This is a fundraising event for the

chased and paid for a new site and has accumulated over
$28,000 in its building fund. It is the organizations goal
to reach a $150,000 level prior to the construction of its
anticipated 3,200/sf facility.
Last years Miracle Sunday service raised approxi-
mately $7,000 and Helping Hands is hoping to exceed
this amount for 2012. Fred C. Plath, Treasurer of Help-
ing Hands said that it will be a challenge to get to the
$150,000 fund raising goal, but that the church, busi-
ness, and overall community has been very faithful to
Helping Hands and that Gods timing is always perfect
and the project will be accomplished in His timing. Small
donations, or even large ones, in support of this project
can be made to PO Box 532 Howard City, MI 49329.
Please be sure and specify building fund on any such
donations.
Helping Hands consistently services well over 100
families each month and continues to be very grateful to
the community for its faithful support of its ministry.
Miracle Sunday will include various musical enter-
tainment and more information on the Helping Hands
ministry outreach. Please bring your own chair and come
out and support the service that Helping Hands provides
to our community. Questions may be directed to (231)

Classmates reunited in celebration of
50 years since graduation. Ours was the
last class to graduate from HCHS prior
to consolidation forming the Tri-County
School System.
Our reunion day began by meeting
for a wonderful brunch at The Edgar
Farm, owned by our classmate Frances
Kaye (Arbogast) Carlson. She served a
delicious meal in the home that has been
masterfully restored.
We reminisced for hours and formed
a circle outside in the yard as each class
member gave a short summary of our
lives for the 50 years since graduation.
Arrangements had been made to
have our old High School on Edgerton
unlocked so we could take a walk down
memory lane as we viewed the familiar
hallways and classrooms during the late
afternoon.
At 6:00 PM we went to Heritage
Church in Maple Hill to attend the
Alumni Banquet. The group photograph
on the steps included those attending
the brunch. The four separate photos
are classmates who attended the Ban-
quet only, and not included in the group
photo taken at the brunch.
Special appreciation to Don Boez-
winkle and Glenda (Cisney) McComb
for their hard work in the successful
planning of our reunion; as well as Fran
(Kaye) (Arbogast) Calson for hosting the
brunch in such a beautiful place.
Glen Hackbardt is in the process of
making a movie of our high school years.
Our classmates are looking forward to
the release of that movie with great an-
ticipation.
HCHS provided a wonderful educa-
tion and foundation for each of us in
our life and career journeys; as well as
the close bonds of friendship that were
formed during those years.
This special day of being reunited
was wonderful in every way. May God
continue to bless us during the rest of
our journey.

LANSING Memorial Day
kicks off the grilling season as
Michigan residents enjoy deli-
cious, fresh from the garden
fruits and vegetables and Michi-
gan-made dishes. Before grilling
or planning your outdoor picnic,
the Michigan Department of Ag-
riculture and Rural Development
(MDARD) reminds you of some
basic food safety rules to keep
you and your family healthy this
summer.
Wash your hands in warm,
soapy water before, during, and
after handling food. Use sepa-
rate utensils, cutting boards, and
serving dishes for raw and cooked
foods, and wash them thorough-
ly with warm, soapy water before
re-using. Never serve grilled food
on the same dish that held raw
meat, poultry, or fsh.
Foods should be marinated in
the refrigerator, not on counter-
tops or outdoors. If the marinade
will be used as a sauce on the
cooked food, set a portion of it
aside before adding the raw meat,
poultry, or seafood; do not reuse
marinade used for raw meat.
Ensure your meat has been
properly cooked by using a meat
thermometer to test the internal
temperature. Using the color of
the meat as a guide is not enough
to ensure proper cooking. Insert
the thermometer horizontally
into the center of the meat for
10-15 seconds to register the in-
ternal temperature. Hamburg-
ers should be cooked to 160F;
poultry to 165F; pork to 160F;
and large cuts of beef to 145F
for medium rare, and 160F for
medium.
A general guideline to fol-
low is keep cold foods cold and
hot foods hot. Keep foods cold
by storing them in the shade in
a lid-covered cooler with a cold
pack inside. Do not leave perish-
able food out of the refrigerator
for more than two hours; when
temperatures reach 90F, food
should not be left out of the re-
frigerator for more than one
hour.
For more information on
food safety, visit http://www.
michigan.gov/mdard or http://
foodsafety.gov/.
Simple food safety guidelines can help
keep your family safe this summer

- PRESS RELEASE -
White Creek news release
Grand Re- opening.
White Creek Lumber and Hardware is holding a grand
re-opening event to celebrate something that is over-
due.
The Lumber and Hardware has been located at its
current site since 1988 when it was built under previ-
ous ownership. In 2005, the store was purchased by
current management and was renamed White Creek
Lumber and Hardware by the new owners. We never
had time to have a Grand Opening said one of White
Creeks owners, Jane Gosling, whos been a part of
the company since its inception.
A private formal ribbon cutting was held on the rst of
June and festivities are continuing Friday June 8 and
Saturday June 9.
A drawing for four tickets to a NASCAR event held in
Talladega Alabama was held in early May. The event
signies a new chapter in the stores history, whose
founder opened a store in Grand Rapids in 1948. Our
pricing structure will be considerably different and
highly competitive. We think customers will like it a
lot. We are keeping the same quality reputation thats
served us well through the years Gosling added. Sev-
eral other door prize drawings will be held during the
two-day event and specially discounted merchandise
will be offered. Representatives from Andersen Win-
dows, Azec Trim and Decking, Camo Hidden Deck
Fastening System, Atrium Windows, and Simpson
Strong-Tie Connectors will be part of the festivities.
One lucky customer will win a Stihl Chainsaw. Digni-
taries attending include Cedar Springs City Manager
Chris Burns, Orgill Manager Mike Gould, Art Probst
owner of Probst Floor Covering and Draperies repre-
senting the Cedar Springs Lions, and Rotary Presi-
dent Denise Gates. White Creek is located at 13861

NORTH AMERICAN
PRECIS SYNDICATE
When it comes to protecting
the environment, the younger
generations involvement is
sometimes limited to recycling
paper and picking up trash. At
4-H, however, youth are tap-
ping into their math, science,
engineering and leadership
skills to make a positive impact
on their environment.
Birch Run High School in
Saginaw County, was paying
to remove the used cooking oil
from the cafeteria without any
thought as to how it could be
reused.
Five teens in the schools 4-
H Club came up with a plan to
collect the used cooking oil and
turn it into bio-diesel fuel that
could run some of their school
buses.
The community joined in
by donating its used cooking
oil and the program now has
2,500 gallons of used vegetable
oil to turn into bio-diesel fuel.
In San Leandro, Calif., an-
other group of 4-Hers decided
to reduce its communitys en-
vironmental footprint. Califor-
nians use hundreds of thou-
sands of tons of polystyrene
each year for packaging food,
which accounts for a large per-
centage of the litter recovered
from storm drains.
By educating restaurants,
consumers and public officials
about the negative effects of
using non-biodegradable plas-
tics, the 4-Hers convinced the
community to use alternative
products.
Across the country in Ox-
ford County, Maine, 200
students at the 4-H Camp &
Learning Center are building
underwater robots to identify
milfoila weedlike substance
that grows in fresh water. As an
invasive species in the regions
11 lakes and ponds, milfoil can
prevent fishing and swimming,
and contaminates clean drink-
ing water.
The 4-Hers use a video
camera and GPS technology to
identify the milfoil, so they can
deal with the problem.
These 4-Hers also do their
part to educate the public
about the environmental dan-
gers of not cleaning off boats
properly-the leading cause of
milfoil buildup.
According to The 4-H Study
of Positive Youth Development,
conducted by Tufts University,
compared to their peers, youth
in 4-H are nearly two times
more likely to plan to go to col-
lege, are three times more like-
ly to contribute to their com-
munities, and are more likely
to pursue studies or a career in
science, engineering or com-
puter technology.
4-Hs positive youth devel-
opment programs are devel-
oped by the nations 111 land-
grant universities, and provide
young people with first-hand
experiences in learning how to
limit humanitys impact on the
environment. By taking part,
youth are prepared to make a
difference. For more informa-
tion, visit www.4-h.org.

Chicken Pox and Shingles
This article is revised from a column by Dr. Mercola.
By giving vaccines, trying to prevent all children from experiencing chickenpox naturally, we may have actually created a NEW
epidemic not in children but in adults, especially elderly adults. There is mounting evidence that vaccinating children for
chickenpox may very well be causing a shingles epidemic. I am seeing this in my own practice in Lakeview, Michigan.
Before the live virus chickenpox vaccine was licensed in the United States in 1995, most children acquired a natural,
long-lasting immunity to chickenpox by age six. For 99.99 percent of healthy children, chickenpox is a mild disease without
complications. Less than 100 children died per year from complications of chicken pox.
Chickenpox and shingles are related. They are caused by similar viruses; both are in the herpes virus family. After you recover
from chickenpox, the virus can remain dormant (asleep) in your nerve roots for many years, unless it is awakened by some
triggering factor such as physical or emotional stress. When awakened, it presents itself as shingles rather than chickenpox.
Shingles is marked by pain and often a blister-like rash on one side of your body. Other symptoms can include headache
and u-like symptoms. Although very painful, most people who get shingles will recover without serious complications and will
not get it a second time. However, in people with weakened immune systems, shingles complications can be severe. The most
common complication is post herpetic neuralgia, or PHN, where the pain may last for months or even years after the rash has
healed. The pain is caused by damaged nerve bers, which then persist in sending pain messages to your brain.
Nature has devised an elegant plan for protecting you from the shingles virus. After contracting and recovering from
chickenpox (usually as a child), as you age, your natural immunity gets asymptomatically boosted by coming into contact with
infected children, who are recovering from chickenpox. This natural boosting of natural immunity to the varicella (chickenpox)
virus helps protect you from getting shingles later in life.
In other words, shingles can be prevented by ordinary contact, such as receiving a hug from a
grandchild who is getting or recovering from the chickenpox. But with the advent of the chickenpox
vaccine, there is less chickenpox around to provide that natural immune boost for children AND adults.
As hard as scientists try to come up with ways to improve human biology, they just cant outsmart
Mother Nature. In trying to tinker with the natural order of things, we tend to destroy processes that
God has masterfully orchestrated to keep us healthy. This dance between chickenpox and shingles is a
perfect example.
If you get shingles there are both traditional and natural treatments that work well. Many parents are
now opting out of the chicken pox vaccine for their children. It is time we think for ourselves and not let
the government and the drug companies dictate our health care. Remember it is not nice to fool with
Mother Nature.

Paid in 2008. In 2008 a certain Ms. Ferrero, 63 years
old and permanently disabled since 1998, owned a
home in Walton Twp., Michigan. She paid her prop-
erty tax bill in 2008. And when she led her 2008
Michigan State income tax return in April 2009, Ms.
Ferrero claimed a homestead property tax credit.
Refunded in 2009. Because Ms. Ferrero had no state
income tax liability, the State could not reduce her
state tax liability by the amount of the homestead tax
credit. And because Michigan law 206.520(3) pro-
vides that if the credit claimed under this section . .
. exceeds the tax liability for the year or if there is no
tax liability for the tax year, the amount of the claim
not used as an offset against tax liability shallbe
approved for payment, without interest to the claim-
ant, the State paid Ms. Ferrero the amount of the
homestead property tax credit, without interest, by
check, outright. So in 2009, Ms. Ferrero received a
$1,093 refund check.
A 2009 exemption? In 2009 Ms. Ferrero had only
$9,732 from Social Security, for income. She thought
she would qualify for a property tax exemption from
the Township. In 2009, people with income below
$10,400 were exempt from having to pay property
taxes.
Exemption Denied. But the Walton Townships
Board of Review denied her request, saying that the
2008 homestead property tax credit refund she had
received in 2009 was income which, when added
to her social security income, placed her above the
$10,400 limit.
Always appeal. Appalled, Ms. Ferrero appealed. But
the Michigan Tax Tribunal agreed with the Board.
Ms. Ferrero appealed again and the Court of Appeals
agreed with her.
Are tax refunds income? The Court of Appeals
reasoned that the State Tax Commission has already
set the bar. It dened income as including: wages
and salaries, net receipts from self-employment, reg-
ular payments from social security or public assis-
tance, alimony, pensions, scholarship, and dividends,
interest, in Bulletin number 5 of 1995. Nothing was
mentioned about tax refunds.
Rebate, not refund. The Court then said that despite
some courts holding that a tax credit can function
like a tax refund in some cases (see Universal Oil
Products Co v Campbel, a 1950 case), The home-
stead property tax credit does not confer income nor
is it a program to transfer new monies to individuals;
rather it is to rebate a portion of the property taxes
a person has already paid. This is easily seen in the
context of a taxpayer whose income tax liability ex-
ceeds the amount of the homestead credit for which
they qualify. In such a case, the taxpayer does not re-
ceive a refund check; rather they receive their rebate
in the form of an equivalent reduction in the amount
of income tax due. The amount of money received
and the basis upon which it is received is identical
whether it is received as a reduction in income taxes
due or payment of the amount of the rebate that ex-
ceeds the individuals income tax liability.
The Courts majority decided that the $1,093 prop-
erty tax credit was a rebate which was a return of
excess money paid in even though Ms. Ferrero paid
no money in, thus the credit check should not have
counted towards Ms. Ferreros income. Mudfuddle
soup, I say. Of course the problem is that for 2008
Ms. Ferrero received $1,093 because she owned land
and didnt owe any State income tax. And in 2009
she owned land, didnt owe any State income tax, and
didnt have to pay property taxes either, as it turned
out.
A dissenter. Even though this might be a fair outcome
in trying times, when people have little money with
which to pay more taxes, I appreciate the plain old
good sense of Justice Owens lone dissent. He seems
to think that $1,093 put into a pocket that already has
$9,732 in it, means theres $10,825 in it.

Lighting The Way
By Craig W. Armstrong
Many of us take our vehicles for granted. We
jump into them, start them up and take off. But,
do you ever stop to think how hard it would be
to go anywhere at night without headlights?
Sure, most streets are lit, but it would be very
difcult to drive at night without illumination.
There are many types of headlights available,
and while you get your vehicle ready for
spring, you may want to consider your op-
tions.
The incandescent headlight is the most com-
mon used by America car manufacturers. The
light comes from the lament. As an electrical
current runs through the lament, it glows and
gives off light.
Another popular type of headlight is halogen.
Halogen is a newer technology. It shares the
use of a lament with the incandescent light,
but its differences make it better. First, it uses
a thinner lament. This allows the light to pro-
duce brighter white light than its incandescent
cousin. Second, it is lled with halogen gas.
The gas allows the lament to burn longer and
thus extends the life of the headlight.
The next evolutions in gassy bulbs are xenon
headlights. Like halogen, xenon headlights use
gas to achieve a whiter light. Unlike halogen,
xenon headlights dont use lament. They
use electrodes instead. These electrodes are
encased in a bulb lled with xenon gas. This
technology also allows the bulb or headlight
to burn much longer. As you can imagine,
xenon headlights are more expensive.
Standard driving lights provide a visual range
of about 1,000 feet. Pencil beam headlights
can double that range. The bulbs are usually
for off-road use, and in many states, they are
not street legal. They burn so bright that they
are considered a danger to other drivers.
Fog lights are another type of headlight. Its
all about the angle for fog lights. They are
designed to be pointed downward to increase
visibility during rain, snow or fog. Light is not
reected off the elements and back into the
drivers eyes.
As you begin your spring car care, think about
your headlights. You have many different op-
tions. Make sure the light that lights your way
is right for you.

Spring is here and every-
one wants to enjoy the
warmer weather that in-
cludes animals. Each year,
there are more than a mil-
lion auto accidents involv-
ing animals, accounting
for an estimated 10,000 in-
juries and 150 deaths each
year. The average amount
of property damage caused
by animal collisions is
$2,500 per accident.
Where you live determines
which animals you might
encounter. Animals like
deer, moose, elk, horse
and cows often wander
onto highways or roads.
The most important thing
a driver can do to stay safe
is to be alert.
Reducing your speed is
key to avoiding an animal-
related accident. The more
time you have to react,
the better chance you will
have of avoiding an acci-
dent. In areas animals are
known to habitat, get into
the habit of scanning the
roadway. Use your high
beams whenever possible.
This will help you see the
animals eyes reected in
the light.
Keep in mind that many
species of animals travel
in groups. When you see
one deer bounding across
the road, chances are there
will be several more fol-
lowing. Be extra cautious
when driving near farms,
wooded areas, open elds
and water. Many times you
will see signs advising you
of the animals known to
cross the road in that area.
Take these signs seriously.
Make yourself known.
Use your horn to warn the
animal of your presence.
Honking your horn is the
most effective way to get
the animals attention. If
are in a situation where an
accident with an animal is
inevitable, dont swerve.
Swerving to avoid an ani-
mal can cause more dam-
age and injury than hitting
the animal.
Apply the brakes hard,
honk your horn and try to
maintain control of your
vehicle. If there are ve-
hicles behind you, pump
your brakes and sound
your horn. As with any-
time you get into a vehicle,
be sure to use your seat-
belt. If you do have a col-
lision with an animal, stay
in your vehicle, as getting
out increases your chances
of being hit by another ve-
hicle. Report the incident
to the police immediately.
Animals dont get issued
drivers licenses, but they
do share the road with you.
Drive defensively, stay
alert and be safe.

Travel For Less
By Tresa Erickson
Youve never been one to splurge on some-
thing like a nice vacation and for good reason.
You couldnt afford it until now. Youve come
into a bit of money recently, and the time is
right for a trip. You dont have quite enough to
go where you would really likeor do you?
Consider the following to cut costs.
Find a good travel agent
Yes, travel agents sometimes charge nominal
fees, but the savings they can get you will of-
ten make up for it. Find an experienced travel
agent, let them know how much you can afford
to spend on the vacation of your dreams and
see what they can do to assist you. They may
be aware of discounts and deals youre not.
Shop for deals
Whether youre tackling the planning yourself
or leaving it up to the travel agent, youll want
to shop around for deals on everyday needs
like food and entertainment. Go ahead and
download as many coupons as you can for
area attractions and restaurants. Find out if
what specials are available and use them to
your advantage.
Invite a pal along
Do you have a friend or family member with
cash to spare who loves to travel? Invite them
along. Youll never have to dine alone, and
youll have twice the fun! Youll also save a
great deal by sharing the expenses. Imagine
how much more youll be able to do on your
vacation if you have to pay for only half of the
expenses.
Go during the off-season
You may miss out on some events and the
weather may not be as ideal, but the rates will
be signicantly lower during the off-season.
There will also be fewer tourists, allowing you
easier access to all of the hot spots.
Make some sacrices in accommodations
Forgo the luxurious resort for a less expensive
hotel room or rental. The fact that you dont
have three-star accommodations will matter
little if you are out and about most of the day.
Dine in as much as you can. Stock up at the
nearest grocery store, eat breakfast in and pack
a sack lunch for trips out.
These are just some of the steps you can take
to reduce vacation costs. There may be others,
such as booking early or driving to your des-
tination rather than ying. Consult with your
travel agent and do what it takes to pull of the
vacation of your dreams. You deserve it!
