Fire Board addresses Hartford Township Board
$300,000 donated toward
new $500,000 ladder truck
By Angela Stair
At the August 10 Hartford Township meeting, Dan Dowd, Chairman
of the Hartford Fire Board, came
before the Township officials to tell
them that the Hartford Fire Department is in need of replacing the ladder truck it has and to ask the
Township to put a millage on the
ballot for the general election.
The price of the truck is $500,000.
The department has an anonymous
donation of $300,000, which leaves
a balance of $200,000 needed.
2-year millage proposed
Dowd suggested to the Board a
millage for two years of .73-mill for
the Township, which would cost a
person with a $100,000 home $73 a
year. They plan to approach the City
next.
Dowd said if a millage gets passed,
it would bring in $45,000 from the
City and $45,000 from the Township
for two years. This would be
$ 180,000 for the two years with only
a $20,000 balance remaining.
He felt that could be made up from
the interest on the $300,000 and
their account.
The Board unanimously approved
putting the millage on the ballot.

By Annette Christie
Community residents attending the
Watervliet Township Board meeting
Monday night, August 21, got to
hear the preliminaries on a proposed
ethanol plant to be built in the Red
Arrow Industrial Park by NextGen
Energy, LLC.
Joe Rokicsak, one of the partners in
the project, reviewed a PowerPoint
presentation that highlighted many
of the benefits of ethanol and
ethanol production.
flakes
He said they are proposing a 55million-gallon-per-year plant and
that they would like to make Watervliet their home. They are also
building a plant in McBain, Michigan.
Rokicsak said the proposed plant
would employ 55 people and that
the majority would be hired locally
to work directly at the plant,
However, the economic aspect of
this plant could create 300-600 additional jobs in the local agricultural
and service sectors. It will take nearly 16 million bushels of com to
operate the plant, which can be supported by Michigan farmers.
Trustee Vick Kinzler asked why the
Township officials seemed to be the
last to know the details presented.
Rick Johnson, also a partner in the
project, said there are so many
things that you have to find first
before you can begin talking about
bringing something like this out.
Rokicsak noted that they still do not
have an answer about the CSX
Railroad spur needed to support the
plant but that they are pretty sure
they can get what they need.
Johnson added that they went forward in Kingsley, made announcements, and then had to back out
because they didn't have all the necessary information first and Kingsley couldn't support the plant.
Rokicsak added, "We believe we
can put this together with the rail or
I wouldn't be here.'
Lou Gibson asked about the additional truck traffic that may be added
due to the plant. Rokicsak said that,
during the peak season, there could
be 45 trucks a day hauling in com.
Bob Becker suggested that a road

ready too far to stop now. Hutchins
did ask Berrien County Community
Development Director Dan Fette to
obtain truck counts on Red Arrow
Highway and M-140.
This concern was also addressed in
a letter from Watervliet Public
Schools Superintendent Robert
Gabel on behalf of the Board of Education. He noted that there are
many students who walk to and
from school and there are no sidewalks along Red Arrow Highway,
He suggested in his letter that the
Township seek sidewalks along Red
Arrow Highway as a condition of
granting the plant.
Bud Seymour asked about the odor
from the plant, after reading in the
Tri-City Record that the smell has
been compared to toasted com
and also baked bread. He
asked just exactly would the odor
be.
Rokiczak said he would best
describe it as baked burnt bread but
reminded the audience that everything in the plant is closed and
everything is re-covered. He said
there will certainly be a smell when
unloading com or if the com gets
wet but couldn't say for sure how
much or how strong the odor would
be.
Johnson added that they recently
attended an ethanol conference and
it was amazing to him what a booming industry this is. He said, "We
want to do this right. We intend to be
good neighbors." Johnson admitted
that they may make mistakes, but
they will minimize that as much as
possible.
Becker also asked about the water
discharge. Rokicsak assured them
that the only water that is discharged
is non-contact cooling water, which
will leave the plant, go to a pond and
then into the Paw Paw River. When
asked what temperature it will be
put in the river at, he said the DEQ
will tell him what temperature and
he assured the audience that the
water will be tested.
When asked about the fire protection requirements, Johnson said that
to obtain insurance the plant would
be required to have all of the adequate fire protection.
Hutchins asked about an aerial
truck and Johnson said NextGen
would have to acquire a list of what
Watervliet Township has as inventory of its fire trucks currently and
then go from there. He said the company would work with the Township
to ensure adequate coverage. He
also noted that grain dust is the
biggest concern

Goforth explained that the resolution is required by Michigan State
Housing Development Authority
(MSHDA). It is part of the PILOT
the developer needs to complete
before it would join a project for
low-income housing.
The Goforth Group came before the
Township several months ago with
the plans for a 24- or 48-unit apartment complex to be built on the
Township side of Olds Avenue,
which divides the City and
Township. This would be lowincome housing, requiring that the

him that the plant is lighted at night
but that all of the light is pointed
downward; for security reasons, it is
necessary for the 24-7 operation.
Johnson added that there will be
guard shack, monitoring of the
grounds, and a fence all the way
around the facility.
Trustee Tom Scheid asked about the
time frame for completion and,
while Rokicsak chuckled about what
he would like, it is estimated to be
complete between 12-15 months,
Becker (a member of the Planning
Commission) said, "This is a good
start. We have a responsibility to the
people of the Township. This won't
happen overnight but the sooner we
can get to know each other and the
sooner we can get some plans, the
sooner we can get this going."
Johnson laughed and said, "We are
prepared to spend a lot of time
here."
He added, "The contractors came
here tonight because we take using
locals seriously and we want to use
as much of Watervliet as we possibly can. We've made that commitment wherever we've gone."
Hutchins asked Zoning Administrator Bob Lohr to describe the
process that NextGen Energy, LLC,
will have to still do at the Township
level. Lohr said they will have to
submit a site plan to the Planning
Commission who will then check
compliance. There will be a special
land-use permit needed, which will
require a public hearing; as well as a
possible height variance that will
also require a public hearing.

Youth Fair comes to a
close for another year
By Annette Christie
The 2006 Berrien County Youth
Fair has come to an end, with attendance being under the 2005 number
of 127,335. Fairgoers were down to
116,901 despite sold-out shows in
the grandstand and over 14,500
exhibits.
Youth from all over Berrien County
were able to showcase their talents,
and approximately 2,700 youth did
that.
The grandstand was a popular place
this year, with the demolition derby
selling out on Saturday night and
country stars Blake Shelton and
Miranda Lambert just shy of a sell-
out.
While most of the week was ideal
weather for fairgoers, the look of
rain on Friday may have kept people
away. Of course, the downpour that
finally did hit the fairgrounds around
10:30 p.m. on Friday kept staff and
volunteers busy cleaning up the
aftermath to prepare for Saturday,
the final day of the fair.
It takes approximately 1,000 volunteers every year to make the event
possible.
The animal auctions held on
Thursday and Friday brought in
approximately $318,000 for the 781
animals auctioned off.

Three seats open on
Hartford City Comm.
By Angela Stair
Hartford City Clerk RoxAnn Rodney-Isbrecht said there are three City
Commission seats open for the November 7, 2006, general election,
Deb Keyser's seat will expire and she has filed to run again for her seat.
Bill McLaughlin is not seeking another term, so his seat is open.
Sarah Woodruff of 111 North Center Street has filed a nominating petition
for one of the three available seats this fall.
The third seat available will be that of Mark Scholten who is finishing up
h i s f i r s t t e r n i a s Q xt y Commissioner. He will be running as a write-in candi^ate to reclaim his seat because he failed to file his nominating petition in
time.
Officer Trent DeGroff and Officer
Jason Roe of the Coloma Township
Police Department responded to a
call of a possible suicide by overdose and a possible dead child at
6:09 p.m. Thursday, August 17.
The officers were sent to Ravine
View Estates at 5100 Little Paw Paw
Lake Road in Coloma Township. A
call had been received that, at Lot 7,
a woman was lying on the floor of
her residence and her 3-year-old son
was not breathing and was cold to
the touch.
Officer Roe said a live-in boyfriend
had found Stephanie Morsaw, 22
years old; and her son, Ethan
Nelson, 3. He made the call for help.
At this time, the police are not
releasing his name; but he is not a
suspect.
The officers found Morsaw on the
floor of the residence, unconscious
but still breathing. She was unable to
communicate with officers and was
transported to Lakeland Hospital in
St. Joseph.
The child they observed was not
breathing and was cyanotic. Officers
found no pulse and began CPR until
the Coloma EMS arrived and transported him to Community Hospital
Watervliet, where he was pronounced dead.
On Friday, Morsaw was reported in
stable condition and Coloma Township Police were able to interview
her. Officer Roe said an updated
press release should be released
shortly. Until that time, there is no
further comment.
Coloma Township Police Department is continuing to investigate this
case, with the help of the Berrien
County Homicide Task Force.
Ethan's obituary is on Page 6.
Hit and run
in Hartford
Hartford Police Chief Ramon
Beltran reported that his department
had a hit-and-run accident on
Beechwood Street at South Maple
Street in the late p.m. hours of
August 15 or the early a.m. hours of
August 16. An unknown dark blue
vehicle struck a fire hydrant at the
intersection and left the scene.
Chief Beltran is asking for anyone
with information to please contact
the Hartford Police Department at
(269) 621-3225.
Crackdown on
drunk drivers
Van Buren County Sheriff Dale
Gribler said, "Labor Day is a time
for rest and relaxation, but officers
in Van Buren County won't take a
break from detecting and arresting
drunk drivers. Officers will be out in
full force as summer winds down,
and they certainly won't let drunk
drivers off easy. Motorists should

From August 18 through September
4, Van Buren County is joining more
than 500 Michigan law enforcement
agencies in the statewide "You
Drink & Drive, You Lose" drunk
driving crackdown that includes the
Labor Day holiday weekend that
typically marks the end of summer.
In Michigan, a motorist can be
arrested for drunk driving with .08

Letters & Commentary
Once again, there goes the taxpayers' dollars being wasted.
Renell Watkins
Michigan
governorship
for sale?
Dear Editor,
Is the governorship of Michigan for
sale? If it is, Dick DeVos has the
money to buy it. DeVos boasts about
not taking PAC money. That's good
politics, but the reason he doesn't is
Forbes magazine reported that the
DeVos family wealth is 3.4 billion
dollars. By Febmary 15, DeVos had
already spent 10 million dollars on
campaign commercials nine months
before the election.
DeVos said, "The state business tax
has to go. It's a bad tax."
The facts are the SBT has been on
the books for 30 years. It has survived both Democrat and Republican administrations. It even survived the tax-cutting blitz of the
Engler administration.
Now that the Republican-controlled
administration has irresponsibly
repealed the SBT with no means to
replace the $1.9 billion in lost tax
revenues, how will they balance the
budget?
A year ago the Republican- controlled Legislature voted mostly
along party lines, 55 to 51, a budget
that cut benefits of 266 million dollars. All state departments would be
cut 1%. Forty-five thousand would
be cut from Medicaid. Intermediate
school districts would gel less.
Fewer high school students would
qualify for merit scholarships. There
were other cuts.
If Dick DeVos succeeds in buying
the govemorship of Michigan with
campaign commercials, we can look
forward to paying for the $1.9 billion loss in revenue by the repeal of
the SBT with local, city and school
tax increases.

Surprised to
be honored
Last, but certainly not least, I must
thank my wife of almost 35 years,
Linda; and my sons, Kevin and
Steve, for allowing me to spent the
amount of time away from them that
is necessary to be involved in so
many of these outside activities. The
number of missed suppers, school
plays, ballgames, and other activities is surely too great to count; not
to mention the late night phone calls
or the rotten moods that 1 would
sometimes retum home in after a
meeting that didn't go my way. I
truly share this Community Service
award with them and I hope that this
in some way makes all of their sacrifices worth it.
Coloma is a really unremarkable little town as towns go. No famous
generals were bom here; no past
presidents or senators. Nothing of
note was ever invented here and no
great cure was ever discovered here.
The thing that makes this a great
place to live is the people: common,
everyday, hard-working people who
care about each other and who work
together to help each other and to
leave things a little better than they
found them.
1 see this every day in things like the
community soup suppers that raise
funds to help re-supply the Food
Pantry, huge benefits held for those
in need like Brian Rogers, the volunteers here at the Senior Center who
give up one day a week to drive
those who can't drive anymore to
doctor appointments so that they can
remain in their homes, the Athletic
Boosters who work tirelessly to
maintain our school's sports facilities, the Historical Society that has
done such a wonderful job of preserving our past, and others too
numerous to mention.
Thank you all for allowing me to be
a small part of this truly wonderful
area.
Dear Editor,
On Friday, August 4, I was surprised and honored to be named this
year's recipient of the Glad-Peach
Festival's Community Service Award. While it is truly a rare thing for
any politician to be speechless, this
award took me totally by surprise
and it was all I could do to blurt out
much more than a thank-you lo the
assembled crowd, including my
family and friends.
With your permission, 1 wish now
to "revise and extend" my remarks
so that I can publicly thank some of
the many people that have supported
and encouraged me over the years.
1 have been fortunate to have parents who encouraged all of their
children to get involved and try and
do good. I have benefited greatly
from the good name that they have
passed down to me and that, hopefully, 1 can pass down to my sons.
At a very young age, I was elected
to the Coloma City Commission and
I have always felt that the education
1 received from men like Glenn
Randall. Fred Munchow, Monte
Stemaman, and many others was the
equivalent of any political science
degree I could have obtained.
My years on the City Commission
and Coloma Fire Department also
brought me in contact with men who
were heroes before anyone thought
of policemen and firemen as heroes,
like Ken Unruh, Len Dolezan, Bill

M O R E DUST THAN CUSTOMERS... came through the doors of
Watervliet's Main Street stores Tuesday. Highway crews were busy grinding
off an inch or two of asphalt to make way for new.
While the detours slowed things down and the noise and dust kept many
folks off the sidewalks, others found the stores open and ready for business
by using Church and First streets and the three parking lots downtown.
The downtown's many parking lots are easily accessible from First and
Church streets when Main Street isn't. Each block has a parking lot; the
"Park & Ride" next to the Movie Library services the block on the south side
of the railroad track... access it off First Street at the rail crossing in front of
the Fire Hall.
The "Library Park" lot runs all the way from First Street onto Main St.; its
entrance is at the library. The "Creekside Parking lot" on the east side of
Main St. and right in front of the stairs to Flaherty Park on Mill Creek is
accessible from Church Street as well as Main Street.
Work on Main Street is promised to be completed by the weekend, weather permitting. If that doesn't come true, come on down to the downtown
anyway... there's always plenty of parking!
STILL AT HALF STAFF... Some months ago when there was a mini
brouhaha somewhere about the impropriety of flying the flag at half-staff for
soldiers killed in Iraq, I wrote I would fly my flag at half-staff until the soldiers came home.
I see that won't be anytime soon... President Bush this weekend reiterated
his stand: we will not pull out of Iraq until the new democratic govemment
can stabilize the country, "not while I'm President."
I guess he doesn't realize Iraq is engaged in a civil war and the new democratic govemment is powerless to stop it. It will take a strong man to stabilize Iraq, and the strong man won't be backed by ballots; he will be backed
by guns.
At best, we can expect Iraq to be another Iran, "peaceful" under an "elected" strongman backed by religious fanatics. At the worst, Iraq could be
another Lebanon, with a weak democratic govemment; so weak that a terrorist group runs part of the country complete with its own army.
There doesn't seem to be many options short of killing enough people until
the killing stops... and I don't think it should be up to the U.S., every time,
to be the world's policeman.

Q: Why me?
A: You may be

Our experiences are never just for
us. They are for others as well. They
become a treasure chest into which
has been deposited circumstances
beyond our control, unreasonable
people, personal conflicts, and the
serious trials of life. The longer we
live, the bigger the treasure chest.
And when others around us have
similar encounters of life, we can
open the chest and share what we
have learned... helping others
through the same dark valleys and
around the same dangerous tums in
the road that we have traveled.
Treasures also include the joys of
life - fun things we've done; skills
we've leamed; people we've met;

While many of these kids are out of
school for the summer, this gives
them a great opportunity to leam
about one of the most valuable commodities Michigan has to offer agriculture. These experiences give

responsibly raise them and care for
them.

times too. The longer we live, the
bigger this treasure collection as
well.
In the Bible we find this principle:
"Praise be to the God and Father of
our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of
co.npassion and the God of all comfort, Who comforts us in all our
troubles, so that we can comfort
those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received
from God." (2 Corinthians 1:4 NIV)
When we are entrusted with trouble,
it may because God is trying to teach
us something new about Himself
and how we must personally find
our needs met in Him. But it may
also be that He is trying to teach
someone d s g something new about
Himself, and we are His messenger.
That would be an honored position
of responsibility before God - a
unique privilege.
So as we add to our treasure chest of
experiences, we should remember
that those wonderftil jewels called
"God's faithfulness" and those golden chains called "God's comfort"
are not only our possessions but are
also our legacy. Long after our suffering is done, those treasures will
still be appreciated.

Society meeting
August 28
The August meeting of the Van
Buren Regional Genealogical Society will begin at 7:00 p.m. Monday,
August 28, at Webster Memorial
Library in Decatur.
Wilhelm Kiesselback will be presenting a program on Beginning
German Research. He will be giving
an overview of not only the early
historical reasons for genealogical
research but will illuminate the reasons that eventually led to Germans
emigrating from their country. He
will also provide a time line of
migrations from Germany, information about a variety of genealogical
sources, and tell how to access them.
Kiesselback was bom in Hamburg,
Germany, and was educated at the
University of Hiedelberg in Germany. He emigrated to the United
States from Germany in 1959. Now
retired and devoting his time speaking on and helping others doing their
German research, Kiesselback is an
excellent translator of the German
language.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend this very interesting
program.
You are also invited to come and
share your information with us.

two or three hours during the day.
Then we were to meet Bob and
Karen Wallace, Merle and J. Bujack,
and Dave and Sandy Gearhart and
go to dinner for my birthday. We
were going in Bob's boat for a ride
first, which was OK with me...
except my hair would be plastered to
the side of my head in an attractive
mess, but who cares.
We rode the boat in the channels
over on the Coloma side of Paw Paw
Lake and came upon a large yard
party. In the middle of the crowd, I
saw Amy (Bayer) Loshbough and I
called out. "What are you doing over
here?"
Then, out of all the people there, I
saw grandson Eli running with a
bunch of little kids and soon I began
to realize that this was a family
party.
I could not get out of that bo?t fast
enough. There were so many special
faces and wonderftil people lining
the dock. This was a surprise party
for me.
My birthday is not for two weeks,
so they threw me off with having it
early; but they all came, and it was
so great. Our children and Karl

fit the event. The food was from the
islands, with special salads and even
punch from there. The music was all
in favor of the theme. We all even
had a limbo pole, which I did not
try; but the little kids did well at the
game.
L a t e p h a t ni^ht
party I was sitting in my chair,
counting up all of the guests that
came for the evening. I am so
blessed to have so many wonderftil
friends and such a loving family. It
does not hurt at all to tum 60 when
they give you all of this attention.
I hope you all had as much ftin as I
did. I want to thank my special family - Karl and Amy and Gillian and
Justin and Billy and Sergei and Kris
- for all of their hard work and planning. It was a very special night for
me and you all made it happen.
I cannot believe that 1 did not know
anything about what was going on. I
think I know everything and then
they go and do something like this
and totally throw me for a loop.
Thanks for the food and also a big
thank you to all of our grandchildren
who also worked and planned with
their parents. I am sure it was so
hard to keep it all quiet for so long.
I would like to take the time to
thank all of those who traveled so far
to be at this wonderftil party. I am
still enjoying thinking about all that
went on that day. Also, a big thanks
to all of those who sent a card or a
gift and could not come. You were
missed but 1 know how many times
life gets in the way of having ftin.
Thank you, one and all, for all you
did. You really pulled off a good
one. I love you all and feel as if I am
a very lucky person to have so many
in my life.

many of you at the fair and I am encouraged by the many accomplishments of our youth at such young
ages.
The fair is not only a place for the
auctions, as many of our young people also displayed their creativity
through crafts, cooking demonstrations and horse-riding skills. One of
the things I enjoy most is the good
old-fashioned fair food and touring
the small animal bams. By far, the
pigs were the favorite of my children, Elena and Jack.
I was also pleased to see former
state representative Charlie LaSata,
who is now a Circuit Court Judge in
our County, at the fair, supporting
his girls Anna and Sarah who auctioned several chickens.
Michigan's Great Southwest truly
has an amazing group of youth and
through them I can see great things
for our future. I look forward to continuing our family tradition of
attending the fair for years to come
and watching how our children will
grow and develop by reaching their
goals.

The quartet included: Ray Dlouhy,

great time reminiscing and catching
up on the joys of the past. There was
a lot of laughing and joking between
the four.
Ermine said he remembered "skipping school" while Ray said he
spent a lot of time "just trying to forget it."

Consider These "Words of
Wisdom" about Investing
Many of us are inspired by great quotations. And you can find plenty of
them related to investing. Let's take a
look at some of these quotes to determine what they may have to offer us.
"The four most dangerous words in
investing are: T h i s time it's different.'"
- Sir John Templeton, legendary
investor and philanthropist
Templeton points out that m a n y
investors tend to repeat their mistakes or the mistakes of others. For example,
has the Enron debacle taught us to not
put too much money in c o m p a n y
stock? After all, Enron employees w h o
participated in their company's 401(k)
plan had invested about 58% of their
assets in Enron stock when it lost
almost all its value during 2001. Yet
today, many people are still "overloading" their 401(k)s with company stock.
Of course, Enron w a s an extreme
example. Still, any company's stock
can fluctuate in value. And if these
fluctuations are significant and occur at
the wrong time - such as when you're
retired and want to start taking distributions from your 401 (k) - you could take
some "hits."
As Templeton says, simply hoping that
bad things won't happen again is not a
sound investment strategy. Pay attention to mistakes - and leam from them.
"The individual investor should act
consistently as an investor and not as a
speculator." - B e n j a m i n G r a h a m ,
author and economist
An investor looks for good investments
that are reasonably priced, while a
speculator "bets" on risky vehicles. An
investor holds high-quality stocks for
(B.R.A.I.N.), and from which she
retired after 11 years. She volunteers
at Watervliet's St. Joseph Catholic
Church in religious education and is
also a Euch-aristic minister.
Both Jim and Tina are members of
St. Joseph Catholic Church, Watervliet.

^ ^ v e great-grandchildren.
Jim retired after 32 years at Gast
Manufacturing. He enjoys his family, all sports, and traveling.
Throughout her 19 years of employment, Tina was at Cedarwood
Medical Center, where she worked
in the area of OB-GYN; was an
EMT; and also worked at Berrien
Regional Association in Neurology

Investing in Your Future
By Charles Stein
Investment
Representative
the long term and anticipates gradual
price appreciation. But speculators
hope for rapid gains, so they can sell
quickly and move on to their next gamble. Sometimes they win, and sometimes they lose.
If you want to achieve your long-term
financial goals, you might want to heed
Graham's advice: Be an investor, not a
speculator.
"We simply attempt to be fearful when
others are greedy and to be greedy only
when others are fearful." - Warren
Buffett, well-known investor
How do people act greedy? By chasing
after "hot" stocks in hopes of everhigher gains - even if the stock prices
are not supported by eamingsrand other
key fundamentals. How do investors
express their fear? By trying to "cut
their losses" through selling stocks
when the price drops - even if the
stocks still offer good long-term growth
potential.
As his quote suggests, Buffett has
achieved his tremendous success by
doing just the opposite. If he can find
no good reasons for a stock to be "hot,"
he probably won't buy it. And if a good
stock's price is temporarily depressed,
he'll j u m p in enthusiastically, because
he recognizes a bargain.
In short, Buffett likes to "buy low and
sell high." And that's good advice for
all of us.
Going beyond the Quotes
As we've seen, some investment-related quotes can impart genuine wisdom.
But you can't always make investment
decisions just on the basis of pithy sayings. Your financial picture is not
exactly like anyone else's, so you will
need to create investment strategies
that are tailored to your needs, goals
and preferences. You may benefit from
working with a financial professional
w h o knows your situation and can recommend appropriate solutions.
So, listen to the words of experience but let your own voice be your true
guide.

Michigan State University Extension helps people improve
their lives through an education process that applies
knowledge to critical issues, needs, and opportunities.
About half of MSU's students receive some kind of financial aid and,
overall, the budget calls for student
financial aid increases of $4.2 million, approximately 8.5% more than
last year. All MSU students who
received institutional need-based
grants last year, and who remain eligible, will receive an increase in
those funds for fall of 2006.
Students who do not qualify for
need-based gift aid still qualify for
low-cost federal loans, as do parents
of dependent students. Both students
and parents can borrow through a
special no-fee, no-interest-forseven-years program offered by the
state of Michigan, c&W&^Miqhjgan
Students First. All students are eligible to borrow through this program.
The per-student amount for federal
and state need-based gift money has
not increased for the past five years,
so the increase in gift aid for needy
students can be attributed entirely to
MSU's commitment to these students and to the generosity of
MSU's many donors.
Tri-City Record
marked, "About nine guys piled on
the scaffolding and the entire structure collapsed. Luckily, nobody got
anything hurt but their pride."
Millie remembered "dissecting
frogs right after breakfast."
Harriet said she remembered "playing basketball... I got three stripes.
And I also remember going to the
football games."
The group fondly recalled their senior trip to Detroit. They took an old
school bus that was borrowed from
one of the local churches.
"It wasn't very comfortable, but it
was a big exciting trip." They all
laughed. "We were anxious to get
our hands on a six-pack," the guys
recalled.
Squeezing 70 years into an evening
was a lot of fun, and the "gang" really enjoyed themselves.

SWEET SUMMER GARDENS IN WATERVLIET TOWNSHIP... gets

Sweet Summer Gardens;
hobby now a new business
By Angela Stair
"A hobby that tums into a business
isn't at all bad," Larry and Sonja
Podjan said about their Sweet Summer Gardens business located at
8401 Hagar Shore Road in Watervliet Township.
Sonja said Larry got sick and tired
of all the seedlings in the house, so
last year he made her a small greenhouse. She had extra seedlings and
decided to sell a few. That started it
all, and Sonja said the business just
exploded last year.
Sweet Summer Gardens is an unusual business that not only has
homegrown fruits and vegetables
but also has annuals, herbs, perennials, blueberry plants, yard sun catchers, cement statuaries and much,
much more.
The Podjans have lived on their
farm since 2000.
"Neither of us were farmers when
we bought and took over the farm,
but we have leamed," Larry said. "1
dp. thp, buildfng, byl Sjonja, is the
plant person. She will soon have her
certification as a Master Gardener."
Sonja has designed a large garden
with walkways lined with bricks
from old Colfax Avenue. "I don't
like a garden that has segregated
colors or flowers, so mine is a mix,"
she said. "If 1 don't like it in one
place, I can dig it up and move it. I
love a mix of colors and plants.
They are about 90% annuals."
Apparently the people who stop by
and are invited to enjoy the garden
feel the same way. Many make
retum trips just to walk the paths and
enjoy the serenity.
She also has a large herb garden
with 60 different herbs. Next year
she plans to have 40 or 60 more. All
the herbs she has now are also available for purchase in pots to have
fresh herbs in a garden or on a windowsill to use.
"We have many uncommon plants
and herbs that most people don't
carry," Sonja stated. "I carry dwarf
and miniature conifers too. They
look like standard evergreens but
don't grow like them. The Leprechaun will grow to 1' tall by 14"
wide in 10 years!" She said they are
great for rock gardens and fairy gardens.
Sun catchers, stained glass, and
tramp art are all handcrafted by local
artists and are also available at
Sweet Summer Gardens. Tramp art
is made from things you might have
around, like a shovel or hoe. It is
then sculpted and painted into an
qlyeqt. fish was on display that
had been made from a shovel.
"I have the best job in the world!"
Sonja claims. "I can play with my
plants and it never feels like work."
The address of Sweet Summer
Gardens is 8401 Hagar Shore Road,
but there is also access to them from
M-140 (they are on the comer).
The hours are from 11:00 a.m. to
6:00 p.m. Wednesday through
Sunday. Sweet Summer Gardens is
closed Monday and Tuesday.
The phone number of the business
is (269) 463-5786.

Life in the Ukraine!
EDITOR'S NOTE: Peace Corps'
Chicago Regional Recruiting Office
announced earlier this year that
Jessica Wallmeier of Watervliet had
accepted a position with the Peace
Corps to serve as a Community
Youth Developer in the Ukraine.
She left the United States for training on February 27, 2006; and is
now at her "home" in the Ukraine.
Wallmeier was a Watervliet High
School graduate. She then graduated
in May of 2005 from Anderson
University in Anderson, Indiana,
with a bachelor of arts degree in
political science. She has been a
substitute teacher at Watervliet
Public Schools and a Village Director at Camp Rosenthal, a camp for
inner-city Chicago youth.
As a Community Youth Developer,
Wallmeier will help to define a new
youth development program that
closes the gap between urban and
rural youth in areas such as citizenry, business, and health education.
Following are Jessica's responses
from a list of questions asked of her
as a new Peace Corps volunteer:
What motivated you to serve?
"I want a chance to make a contribution to the international community, to leam about a new culture and
share a piece of mine."
Are there any things about you
that you would like readers of an
article about your Peace Corps
assignment to know?
M
I discovered my love of travel
through Anderson University's
study, serve and share program
working in places like Tanzania,
Africa; painting a school; and studying in the Middle East."
Do you have any additional comments?
M
I am honored and excited to serve
with the Peace Corps in the Ukraine!"
The following is a letter she recently e-mailed to friends and family.
Dear Editor,
Hello! Training with the Peace
Corps was non-stop, but now l am
finally at my permanent site and I
have Intemet access in town! I
somewhat feel like I fell off the face
of the earth for three months.
I think I might have really lucked
out with the location of my site; I am
in a small city called Beregove right
Nearly poked my eye
out with huge knife
V'
Jessica W a l l m i e r
on the border of Hungary, literally a
border town. It's considered one of
the most beautiful parts of the country, especially by other volunteers,
just past the Carpathian Mountains
with rolling hills and gorgeous rivers
and all that jazz.
Different dialects
are "mind blowing"
But four months ago I thought,
naively, of course, that there was a
chance I would have a workable
knowledge of Ukrainian. Well, come
to find out, 1 do... only if I stayed in
the place at which 1 had leamed it
because the dialects in this country
are quite mind blowing; especially
in my new town where not only
Russian and Ukrainian are spoken
(as expected) but 70% of the people
in Beregove speak Hungarian! That
language is NOTHING like the
other two, although I am catching on
to some of the basic words... like
"OK/good" is "Yo" in Hungarian.
I like my new host family, although
I miss my village life and my
"Ukrainian family" from there. I
was just starting to get the hang of
things. There is, for sure, a huge difference as well between city and village life, although 1 still see goats,
cows and the rest in the streets.
The funny thing is, at the beginning
of our service, the Peace Corps told
i ^ vve ; are not allowed the level of
carelessness that we are in the states,
like water and appliances (the stove
is a manual-lighting gas stove); but
here with my new host family the
mom is the definition of carelessness or is just really clumsy.
She's tripped several times over the
kittens and cats in the house, letting
dinner be served off the table instead
of on it, and the first night she nearly poked my eye out with a HUGE
knife as she was waving it around
while telling a story! I don't know
how many times she forgot she left
something on the stove, i.e. charred
meat, exploding teapots and a stove
full of coffee!
She's a riot, that's for sure, and I try
to keep an extra eye out. I just hope
I still have it by the end of these
three months, after which I will be
getting a place of my own (finally 1
can make my own food!).
I have been here in Beregove for
just over three weeks now. Since we
are placed in schools as our main
work site, it's the worst timing
because, just as I arrived, school is
letting out. However, I have gotten a
taste for end-of-the-year celebrations here.
My time is spent making meetings
with different people and groups that
work with the youth here and to start
thinking of project ideas. At first,
time was flying by; but, as summer
comes to full vacation time, the days
have been long and getting a little
boring.
Usually I find the one thing that gets
me out of bed, like needing to buy
toilet paper. Then I start to walk a lot
around the city, explore, and run into
my students to talk to.
Some fun stuff
Some fun stuff has been going to a
great Ukrainian/Hungarian concert;
an excursion to a waterfall with the
eighth-graders; going to the river
with my host family every weekend
(because it's so hot here!); and
spending all day and all night at a
Ukrainian wedding, which was fascinating!
As for the meetings here, they are
one of a kind; like my last meeting
with the Department of Education
and family and youth. Here I am,
trying desperately'tb get something
done; and four people are speaking
all at once. Of course, I can't understand a word.
No one knows for sure what to do
with me so we sit down with a rotating bunch of woman all throwing
papers at me and telling me about all
the things they can think of at the top
of their head; plus people pop in to
ask questions and shuffle papers and
the Director is constantly on the
phone. I thought my head was going
to explode! But that is a typical Ukrainian meeting, come to find out.
Usually, there is a part in there that
has to do with eating a ton and having a couple of toasts too... but not
that day. Also, my family and colleagues look like they want to fall
over dead if 1 dare think of doing
something on my own, like visiting
the local boarding school or meeting
someone new. Of course, I still do it
anyway.
I am also coming to realize that
everything
here
takes
time.
Yesterday, I went to the rehabilitation center for disabled children at
the time the doctor said he would be
there. As usual, no one was there so
I will have to go back every day
until I find someone there.
And things like getting a post office
box is like waiting for a miracle. It
took me three weeks, but I finally
have one after eight visits and a lot
of groaning from the woman who
works behind the desk!
As for the rest of the summer, soon
I will be traveling on a 24-hour train
ride to the other part of the country
for some Peace Corps training for a
week; and then, in July, I will work
at two camps run by other volunteers not far from my city, about 45
minutes away. August is looking
wide open, but who knows?
Something might come up!
But I will end here for now and will
write again soon. I hope everyone is
doing well and having a great summer.
I think about home often now, especially when every person I meet asks
me if I miss home or want to go
home; but that is usually the standard fourth or fifth question. The
first is always "Are you married?"...
followed by "How old are you?"
Next is "What music do you like?" if
"Are you planning on marrying a
nice Ukrainian boy?" doesn't slip in.
- n r / T a i x i / / /»(

,
Then comes the heme question- Talk to you soon. Love and miss
you-all!
Love, Jess

Tarheel State
Quartet concert
August 27
in Keeler
Keeler General Baptist Church,
63627 Territorial Road, Keeler, is
pleased to announce that the Tarheel
State Quartet will be in concert at
the church on Sunday, August 27, at
11:00 a.m.
North Carolina, known as "The Tarheel State," makes it obvious where
this group calls home. The group's
members hail from Statesville,
which is centrally located between
the white sandy shores of the
Atlantic Ocean and the breathtaking
beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Each member making up this
unique group grew up singing
gospel music. Southern-style. Since
1988, the Tarheel State Quartet has
been traveling across the country,
holding true to the Southem gospel
tradition with its incredibly smooth
vocal harmony and toe-tapping,
hand-clapping excitement along
with onfe of the most outstanding
bands in the Southem gospel music
industry.
God has blessed this group beyond
measure, to be able to share the message of GOD and share His love to a
countless number.
Members of Tarheel State Quartet
say it is an honor to sing the greatest
music in the country, the music with
a "positive" message. The group
sings Southem gospel all the way
and is loved by both young and old.
"It does not matter whether we sing
in churches or in auditoriums. God's
presence meets with us and his love
flows among the people, causing
them to rejoice and to be lifted up
and encouraged and to bring the lost
to know the same Lord we serve.
"First, the mission of our group is to
spread G o d ' s message in song
everywhere we go. The group's love
for the Lord and the passion to sing
Southem gospel music has enabled
opportunities to come our way
beyond imagination. God has richly
blessed our singing ministry and we
give Him all praise and honor."
The piano player for the group,
Mark Moore, is also one of the leading songwriters of the industry. As a
member of the Songwriter's Guild,
he has had songs recorded by such
artists as Karen Peck and New
River, George Ammon Webster and
Hartland, By Faith, and many others.
The Tarheel State Quartet consists
of men who have united their talent
as one to bring a unique sound and
style to Southem gospel music. The
smooth vocal harmony is provided
by Ronald Moore, First Tenor; Jeff
Rowland, Lead; Mark Moore, Baritone and Pianist; and Danny Brown,
Bass.
For further information, please contact Rev. Bill Martin at (269) 6212551 or Celeste Phillips at (269)

Tuesday and Wednesday, September
5 and 6, for its fall production of A
Bad Year for Tomatoes. Auditions
will be held at 7:00 p.m. both days in
the Hanson Theatre of the LMC
Mendel Center on the Napier Avenue Campus in Benton Township.
A Bad Year for Tomatoes, written by
John Patrick, is a hilarious comedy
that introduces us to Myra Marlowe,
a famous television actress who
decides to take a break from her acting career by moving to the tiny village of Beaver Haven in New
England to begin writing her memoirs.
Successful in tuming away her
agent's pleas for her to accept a new
role, but not so in dealing with the
nosy locals, Myra invents a mad,
homicidal sister - locked in an
upstairs room but who occasionally
escapes to scare off uninvited visitors.
Her plan is suitable until the local
handyman develops affection for
"Sister Sadie," while the church
women decide it is their duty to save
her demented soul. Hopeless and
desperately desiring to get back to
her writing, Myra decides to end the
ruse by claiming her imaginary sister has been placed in a home in
Boston. Unfortunately, the handyman and neighbors believe Myra has
murdered "Sister Sadie" and they
notify the sheriff.
The cast consists of four female and
three male parts. All interested in
being a part of a production that
should prove to be very funny and
truly entertaining, including stage
crew, should attend the auditions.
Production dates will be November
10. 11, 17 and 18, 2006.
Theatre scholarships for the fall
2006 semester are still available for
those majoring in theatre or those
who will be participating actively in
LMC's theatre productions and/or
classes.
Applications can be obtained
through the Financial Aid Office
(A219) in the main building or
through the Performing Arts Office
(FI29B) in the LMC Mendel Center
of the Napier Campus.

upcoming auditions or scholarships,

ancient Greek priestesses to the
complexities of current technology,
this exhibit promises to include
something for everyone.

LMC introduces
Wellness Center
as part of health
curriculum
Many Lake Michigan College students will experience a holistic
approach to their education this fall
as LMC opens its new Wellness
Center on the Napier Avenue Campus in Benton Township. The 3,000square-foot Wellness Center, located
on the third floor above the library,
features a state-of-the-art super circuit, a cardiovascular training area
with wireless broadcast television
and radio, free weights and weight
machines.
The Wellness Center is available to
anyone 16 years or older who enrolls in one of two one-credit courses, Total Fitness I and Total Fitness
11; or who enrolls in a 15-week noncredit Wellness Center membership.
According to Jill Claeys, Associate
Dean and Department Chairman of
Math, Science, Physical Education
and Wellness, though the Wellness
Center is new, the college's commitment to curriculum that focuses on
healthy lifestyles has been in place
for well over two decades.
"In 1987, we were the first community college in Michigan to require a
Healthful Living course as part of
the requirement for eaming an associate's degree," Claeys stated. "That
course alone has led many students
to make drastic improvements in
their health habits. Our hope is that
through the addition of this Wellness
Center, more students will leam
strategies that will keep them
healthy and active no matter what
age they are."
Students and community members
who sign up to use the Wellness
Center will participate in an orientation and assessment. The assessment
determines an individual's fitness
level and will include blood pressure, resting heart rate, training
range, body composition, trunk flexibility, and abdominal endurance.
Based on the results, the center's
staff will develop a personalize fitness program for each individual
and conduct an orientation that covers the proper use of all the equipment in the Wellness Center.
An aspect of the center that Claeys
is particularly looking forward to
introducing students to is the aerobic
super circuit, which is a combination
of aerobic activities and strength
training.
"By going through a 30-minute
workout that takes the student
through a set rotation of cardio and
strength training stations, individuals can achieve fitness results comparable to that of a running program
without the shock and stress to the
body associated with running," stated Claeys. "This system also eliminates the inconvenience of having to
wait for others to finish with a
machine, since everyone on the circuit moves from station to station in
the same 45-second intervals."
Students enrolling in the Total
Fitness I and II courses for credit
will be graded on attendance, a written paper about their personal fitness
goals for the class, and completion
of the final fitness assessment at the
end of the course.
For the fall semester, the Wellness
Center will be open Mondays and
Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:55 a.m.,
10:10 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., and 4:00 to
6:25 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays
from 9:00 to 11:05 a.m., 12:20 to
2:20 p.m., and 4:00-6:25 p.m.; and
on Fridays from 7:00 to 8:55 a.m.
and 10:10 a.m. to 2:15 p.m.
Those interested in signing up for
Total Fitness I or 11 classes or for the
fall semester Wellness Center membership can call Jodie Littlefield at
(269) 927-8100, extension 5090.

True Value Hardware this year, so
there is new blood in the mix.
Nancy Huffman finished second
last year, in a close race, so she still
is hungry for another championship
herself.
Joe Jason was in the hunt right up to
the end last year but finished third
and is back for some more punishment again this season.
Fourth-place finisher Rob Bunn has
moved from the area so Tom Gear,
owner of Tri-County Computer
Services, has joined the group as a
tenderfoot to try his luck.
Chris Leach from Guy's Marine in
Coloma also returns after a fifthplace finish last year.
Chris had to hold off Jim Edwards
for several weeks, just to stay out of
the cellar, and wants to make it
much different this year.
Speaking of Jim Edwards from
Nancy's Fumiture, although Jim did
finish sixth last season, he almost
pulled himself out of that dam basement but just could not get over the
hump.
It looks to be another exciting year
for football - from high school, to
college and, of bourse, the NFL and our participants cannot wait to
get started.
This week we have just a few
games to choose as the high school
season gets under way.
Next week the college boys will get
into the mix with season openers for
most teams.
So... on with the competition.
is
first-year player
Danielle
Kroboth. Kroboth is a 5'5" guard
that has a lot of athletic ability and
could help the team.
Coach Johnson says that he feels the
teams to beat in the SAC South will
be Watervliet and Marcellus. He
pointed out that Marcellus retums
all five starters from last year's
team.
And, of course, like everyone else,
he feels that Gobies will be the team
to beat in the SAC North.
Coach Johnson will be assisted by
Joe Quigno, while Heidi Parker will
handle the JV duties.
Hartford will open its season on
Monday, August 28, at Schoolcraft
and then will not play again until
after the holiday break when they
will host Saugatuck on September 7.

As far as the Lady Comets are concerned, Coach Mead says they hope
to get better every day with the ultimate goal being to win a conference
championship.
Coloma will start off its season on
Monday, August 28, when they will
host Covert. They won't play again
until after Labor Day when they will
take on River Valley on September

The girls will have their first games
next Monday or Tuesday, depending
on the school.

Watervliet retums seven letterwinners from last year, including all six
seniors on the team.
They are led by three-year letterwinner Katelyn Bryce. Bryce is a
5 ' 6 " guard/forward that averaged
about 7 points per game, 3.6 rebounds per games, 3.3 assists, and
65 steals last year.
Other seniors include 5'3" point
guard Analyse Winans, 5'10" forward/center Rachel Thomas, 5'

from last season.
They include 5 ' 9 " Lizz Sommerford who was the leading scorer on

"We look pretty quick and I am
encouraged with our defense so far,"
he stated.
As far as the SAC South is con-
cemed. Coach Winter points out that
Marcellus retums all five starters
from last year's team. Lawton and
Lawrence should also be strong.
"There is no clear favorite, but we
should be in the thick of things," he
states.
Coach Winter is assisted by Kim
Bryce again this year, while Rebecca
Yazel will once again handle the JV
duties.
Watervliet will open its season next
Tuesday, August 29, at Saugatuck

pleased with start
Watervliet Athletic Director Ken
Dietz submitted a report on the
activities of the School District's
Athletic Department and said he will
continue to do so as the year progresses.
His latest update states that as the
fall season tip-off, kickoff or it simply just starts for the first time, the
Watervliet Panthers are off to a great
start.
Last Tuesday, August 15, the
Panthers had their first student-athlete/parent meeting. Dietz said, "I
was very happy with the participation, both by the student-athletes and
their parents. Our paperwork and
information that we shared got us off
to a great start. Kudos to our coaches as well. They did a great job,
meeting with the parents of their
players."
He added that another big round of
applause goes out to all the parents
who stayed for the Athletic Boosters
meeting. "Our Boosters Club is an
important component in the success
of our athletic program, and the
input and ideas generated from that
meeting was a big help. 1 hope to see
everyone
again
on
Monday,
September 18, for our next meeting."

Tiger Woods won his 12th major
PGA toumament last week, putting
him just six behind the record of 18
set by Jack Nicklaus.
Tiger won the PGA Championship
at Medinah Country Club, outside of
Chicago, last Sunday rather easily,
with his closest threat finishing five
strokes behind him.
Considering that he has been a pro
for just 10 years, it is scary to think
just how far he will go to set the bar
even higher when his career is over.

The Paw Paw Lake Association
(PPLA) will hold its September
meeting at Watervliet District Library on Saturday, September 2, at
9:00 a.m. Please use the First Street
(rear) entrance to gain entry to the
building.
This is the "first" meeting of our
new year and we welcome two new
members, Scott Hoadley and
Barbara Van Hout, to the Board of
Directors. A retuming Director, Len
Metheny, was also elected to the
Board and will continue as an officer, fulfilling the Treasurer's position. Barb will fill another officer
position as Secretary, replacing
Linda Patton who continues as a
Board member and is Chairman of
our important Strategic Planning
Committee.
Other officers elected were Bob
Becker as President and Joe Stepich
as Vice President.
As the year begins, new committee
chairmen will be appointed for the
2006-2007 Association year. As new
chairmen are appointed, they will, of
course, be looking for volunteers to
help them complete their tasks. A
great way to make an impact, meet
new people, and make a difference
is to volunteer to help the various
chairmen.
The PPLA is a volunteer organization. It is those who are willing to
help who do make the lake and our
greater community a wonderful
place to work, live, and play. If you
are willing and motivated to see our
lake and this area continue to flourish and prosper, please attend this
meeting and offer your time and talent.
As the "season" winds down, the
Paw Paw Lake Association hopes all
who have lived in or visited our area
enjoyed a very pleasant experience.

morph into a blaze of color as nature
prepares for the slumber of winter,

County Marine Division to help
make the lake safe, and further work
on our Strategic Planning.
Your Board continues to work with
the various governmental bodies to
assure that this area continues to
grow and that the growth benefits all

Dates to place on next year's calendar are our 10th annual Boat Parade,
July 21; and the 10th annual Dinner

Kenseth holds
off Gordon for
win at MIS
One infield pass for MIS - $150;
Two infield wristbands - $170;
Three straight days of hearing the
roar from the engines of 43 cars PRICELESS.
That pretty much sums up my
weekend at Michigan Intemational Speedway. 1 would recommend every fan try "the infield
experience" just once, and having
your favorite driver find his way
to victory lane completes the
weekend.
Matt Kenseth was able to hold
off the hard-charging Jeff Gordon
during the final laps of the GFS
Market Place 400 to take the
checkered flag.
Kenseth led a race-high 87 laps
of the 200-lap race. It was his
third victory of the season, bringing his career win total to 13. He
maintains his second-place posiion in the points standings and is
now 58 points behind the leader.
Gordon's second-place finish in
Sunday's race vaulted him three
spots in the standings. He is currently sixth, 434 points out of
first.
Tony Stewart followed Gordon
for a third-place finish in Sunday's race. Stewart jumped two
spots in the standings and is now
in fifth place, 406 points behind
Jimmie Johnson.
Kasey Kahne and Mark Martin
rounded out the top five. Kahne is
fighting for a spot in the top 10 to
be eligible for the "Chase," while
Martin is fourth in the standings.
Kahne is just 49 points out of
10th place.
Pole sitter Jeff Burton experienced engine failure during the
early laps of the race. He finished
42nd and fell from fourth to ninth
in the standings, with just three
weeks before 'The Chase.M
The drivers from third place
down in the standings have not
yet mathematically secured a spot
in the 10-race shootout for the
Championship.
NASCAR makes its way to
Tennessee this Saturday night for
the Sharpie 500 at Bristol Motor
Speedway. The race is scheduled
to air on TNT and should start
about 7:00 p.m.
Last year's winner was Matt
Kenseth.

September 7, and run through
Sunday, Sept. 10, the four-day show
draws hundreds of old engine and
tractor enthusiasts from all over the
United States and Canada who exhibit everything from the huge steam
traction engines to the Maytag
engines that used to run washing
machines.
In addition to the numerous tractors
and engines that will be on display,
the Museum has several working
exhibits - like the blacksmith shop,
shingle mill, and saw mill - that will
be up and running for the show.
Other show activities include daily
equipment parades, nightly entertainment, bingo, tractor pulls, a consignment auction, and a large flea

New activities this year include
valve cover races and the retum of
the old-fashioned cakewalk. The
Museum has also opened several
new displays this year - two of
which are in the Old Towne area.
"This summer, we have completed
our 'Farm Equipment Repair Shop'
and also our jail," states Ingalls.
"Both were buildings that use to be
in Casco Township cemeteries and
were donated to us by the Township.
The buildings have been renovated
and transformed into businesses that
"A lot of our visitors come just for
the flea market," states Patrick
Ingalls, President of the Museum.
"We have approximately 200 vendors selling everything from crafts
you would have typically found in a
1920s rural town."
The jail has two cell blocks that
were donated to the Museum and are
said to be the original cells from the
City of Bangor.
Another new exhibit this year is
"Christmas Past." Located on the
edge of town in the log cabin that
was built by Ed and Kathleen Hills,
the display shows how a pioneer
family would have decorated its
rural home for Christmas.

that brought him an

Berrien County Youth
Fair last week. He also
entered a clay pot and
grape tomatoes. Hunter received a WBM
award for his tomatoes
because they

The reason he admitted was because he ate
so many of them before they were entered. He is the son of

New surface for Main St.
By Lynn Attila
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT)
began work Monday, August 21, on 0.5 mile of roadway
on M-140 from Red Arrow Highway to the Paw Paw
River in the City of Watervliet.
"Work should take about five days, barring rainy weather," according to Paul South, Manager of MDOT'S
Transportation Service Center in Coloma. "If the weather cooperates, we should be out in five days. If it should
tum rainy, we may be there until the middle of next
week."
South said the repair process is referred to as "Mill &
Fill," which means the asphalt is actually ground up and
replaced with new asphalt.
During this work, one lane of alternating traffic will be
maintained via flag control through the downtown area.
The $1.3 million project involves Berrien as well as
Cass and Van Buren counties. Work also includes 5.2
Bike paths planned
Red Arrow Highway from Coloma City Limits to east
of the Watervliet City Limits will be getting bike paths
on both sides of the road on September 11. If the weather is rainy this date may be postponed.
There are no plans by MDOT to widen this road at this
time.
The bike paths were made possible by a grant obtained
by the CWAEDC.

Vandalia. Some of the work began July 31.
"This work is part of our yearly Capital Preventative
Maintenance (CPM) program, which includes projects
designed to extend the life of the roadways," said South.
"This project is designed to extend the life of these roadways by approximately five years and improve the ride

smoothly he told them.
Akinwale said the City was fortunate that there were no serious or
emergency issues to deal with during the renovation of the tower. He
said he was very appreciative of the
residents' cooperation and understanding during that time.
"I want to commend Danny Staunton (Public Works Superintendent)
for a job well done when the water
pressure pump failed," Akinwale
said. "It was his quick response that
kept the situation from getting a lot
worse than it could have been.
"I would also like to commend and

P h a s a ' ™ d y approved the
proposal for .73-mill for two years.
Dowd said if both the City and
Township proposals are approved by
the voters, it would bring in $45,000
from each entity for each of the two
years, for a total of $180,000. He
said they have $300,000 toward the
purchase of the ladder truck, which
will cost $500,000. The balance
would be made up of interest on the
$300,000 and other monies.
Mayor Johnson wanted to know if

would do with the old one, and if it
would be larger than the one they

Mayor Ted Johnson asked if the
road would also be paved by then.
Bittner said it would not be paved,
but it would be usable. He said they
would complete the paving after all
the work is completed on Spaulding
too. He said they plan to patch
where they had to cut out the pavement and then they would cap it with
114 inches of cover. They will also
put down any shoulder gravel that is
needed.
Mayor Johnson asked if the railroad
crossing work was done yet.
Bittner told him the roadwork had
been completed and the railroad had
put temporary track down on
Monday. He said they would get the
permanent crossing completed next
week.
Akinwale said that Southwest
