wasn’t able to get one for
a couple of years,” Massy
said.
Last year, Massy and
the MSHDA staff analyzed housing conditions
in six primary areas of the
county. The other three
were the villages of LeRoy,
Tustin and Hersey, which
were the lesser populated
of the six.
Housing conditions,
density of housing, proximity to community amenities such as shopping and
schools were some of the
values weighed in deciding
which communities would
benefit the most from the
CDBG grant.
For example, Reed City
has approximately 560
houses per square mile
compared to the county’s
ratio of 23 houses.
The aim of rehabbing
houses is to avert deterioration of a neighborhood,
Massy said, adding one
remodeled house may
prompt other homeowners
to maintain their properties.
Another task Massy is
working on is setting the
agenda for the April 15

Superintendent Mort
Meier decided to hold
school based on the notice
from Consumers Energy
that electrical power would
be restored by noon.
According to reports,
icy conditions over night
and early morning led to
several damaged transformers that overheated or
caught fires that knocked
out power in areas of
Osceola, Wexford and
Missaukee counties.
Entire areas of Marion
and McBain were without
power. Schools in McBain
closed at 9 a.m.
Meier said students at

said.

until much later in the day,

In October 2007, I was hit by a pickup truck while cycling. My
extreme injuries included a shattered left tibia, five broken ribs, a
broken pelvis, and a punctured lung. My recovery took over a
year. Afterward, the pain in my leg was so severe that by the end
of the day I was barely able to walk. In October of 2009, I went to
Dr. Roland Hester of Southern Orthopedic Surgeons and asked him to cut my leg
off, due to the pain. On Christmas of 2009, Glenda DeRamus gave me the New You

Local farmer experiments with cover crops
By Kristen Kiluk, NRCS
Soil Conservationist Reed City
Arguably the biggest
challenge in growing
cover crops in Michigan
is establishing them after
the fall harvest. A Lake
County farmer decided not
to wait until fall, instead
he plants his cover crops in
the summer, right next to
his established soybean and
corn crops.
Jack Thornton, 28,
helps out with his family’s
livestock operation in Lake
County and is building
his own sustainable corn,
soybean, and oat production
system. Entering his third
season of experimenting
with cover crops, Thornton describes the biggest
challenge as, “getting them
in early enough to grow to
a certain maturity where
they’re actually doing
something good.” In his
first year, he waited until
after harvest to plant, but
his only viable option at
that time of year was cereal
rye. A single species cover
crop is still beneficial, but
he wanted to establish a
greater variety of cover
crops to fulfill more soil
health goals.
In his second year of
planting cover crops,
Thornton planted mixes of
species between standing
rows of corn and soybeans
in mid-July. Using a modified drill, he was able to
establish a highly diverse
cover crop mix comprised
of species that wouldn’t
have done well in the cooler
temperatures after harvest.
“Different cover crops
produce different benefits
for soil health,” said NRCS

State Agronomist Jerry
Grigar. “Some species fix
nitrogen, scavenge leftover
nutrients in the soil, and
control weeds while others
extend roots and extract
water and nutrients from
deeper in the soil profile.”
Thornton found that
planting cover crops early
did not hinder his corn and
soybean crop. Since the
covers were shaded by
standing crops, they germinated and diverted energy
toward root development
without getting too tall or
interfering with the harvest. “The winter peas and
the cowpeas were only a
few inches tall but as I was
digging them up, they had
nodules on them,” he said. “They obviously produced
nitrogen even though the
plant wasn’t growing in
height.”
This year, he’s going to
plant his cover crops even
earlier – around week 6
through 8 of corn growth. Thornton is also designing a new planter to plant
cover crops, sidedress, and
spray herbicide all in one
pass. “With this machine,”
he said, “I’m hoping for
less compaction, fuel, and
time.” If there’s enough
interest, he may operate the
machine for hire for others
in the area looking for an
efficient cover crop planting
option.
Thornton estimates
that in his second year he
spent about $60 per acre
for seed and establishment
of a cover crop. But with
his other savings and yield
increases, the investment
more than pays for itself. He also found that
switching to no-till planting
has increased his ease of
management. Even though
it takes his un-tilled soils
about a week longer to
reach planting temperatures
than conventionally tilled,
he appreciates being able to
get in the field right away. “With the fuel and time savings,” he said, “I don’t have
to put the time into working
up the fields, so I can be
ready to plant as soon as it
warms up.” To anybody interested
in experimenting with
cover crops, Thornton
recommends cereal rye as
a great cover to begin with
because of its hardiness and
flexibility in planting time
near the end of the growing
season. He also says
farmers shouldn’t panic if
they don’t see it germinate

Take a little time to smell
the roses
Mom isn’t always right
when it comes to flu
Wouldn’t you know on
the last day of winter it
hit me- my first cold since
winter began in December
of 2014. And man this cold
has been a doozy. Runny
nose, sneezing, sniffling
and now a frequent cough
make me want to curl up
in my king-sized bed and
sleep the week away.
Instead, however, I decided to get online and find
out some more information
about colds and flu so that
I was better equipped to
fight the virus next time it
decided to invade my body.
I learned what I thought
I knew about a cold and
flu are actually myths. For
instance:
My mother always told
me to bundle up when going outside and never step
out the door without my
hair dried. Experts now
tell us that being cold or
wet has nothing to do with
contracting a cold or flu
virus. The old wife’s tale,
handed down from generations probably got its start
because most colds and
flu are contracted during
winter months when it is
cold and wet.
Another fallacy is that
a cold can turn in to flu
or pneumonia. It is true
that both a cold and flu
are viruses, but the viruses
are very different. A cold
is caused by one of the
hundreds of subsets of the
adenovirus or coronavirus.
Flu is caused by the respiratory influenza virus.
My mother always told
me the best way to combat
a cold was to drink plenty
of orange juice because of
the Vitamin C it contains.
Experts tell us eating or
drinking Vitamin C foods
will not prevent or stop a
cold. In fact, most studies
have shown Vitamin C to
have no effect on colds,
whatsoever.
Another common fallacy
is that the effect of a flu
shot diminishes if you get
it too early in the year. This
is not true, a flu shot will
last you through the entire
winter.
One of the reason’s
I don’t get a flu shot, is
I’ve been told you can
catch the flu from the flu
shot. In fact, I have many
friends that swear that is
what happened to them.
Experts, however, say that
is not possible. It is true the
vaccine is made from parts
of the flu virus, but those
parts are inactive and it is
impossible to get sick from
an inactive strain
Don’t drink milk if
you’re sick, at least, so said
my mother. In reality milk
or dairy products may be
irritating to your throat,
they do not create more
phlegm or cause your cold
or flu to worsen.
“Starve a fever, feed a
cold.” We’ve all heard this
often. Experts say this is
another fallacy. They suggest you eat normally and
in particular, drink lots of
fluids. Your body will need
all the energy it can get
to fight the virus, so keep
your calorie intake constant
with healthy nutrient-filled
foods.
So let’s as I’ve tried to
beat this cold, I’ve been
doing most everything
wrong. I’ve been drowning in orange juice, even
though I can’t stand the
taste. Every year I refuse a

Reflections
By Roger Campbell Ministries
come together to vote to
close the church.
Angela changed their
plans.
In view of Angela’s
surprising arrival, the
lay minister decided to
postpone the business
meeting and hold Sunday
School. Following Sunday
School, Angela decided to
stay for church, choosing
to sit right up front...unlike
some of the members who
seemed to think the pews
farthest from the pulpit
were the best seats in the
house.
For the next two-and-ahalf years, Angela attended
both Sunday School and
church regularly and when
the matter of closing the
church came up it was
settled with one question:
“Where would Angie go?”
Then good things began
to happen that kept this
country church from closing.
Angela’s family started
attending church services
with her and soon others followed. This caused
people in the neighborhood
to become interested in
what was happening in the
little church that had been
ready to close.
New converts and others
who had been believers for
years but inactive learned
to love one another and
demonstrate their faith by
helping people who were
going through tough times.
Finally the church building wasn’t large enough to
hold the crowds gathering
weekly so it was renovated
health risks are for everybody else not you, right?
Long story short? I
caught something then
complicated things on
March 14 – that long, cold
and windy Irish Festival
Day when I spent the day
“pushing myself” to get
everything done – just like
I have every year for the
last 25 years…
Problem is I’m not in
my forties anymore, not
even close.
By Monday I knew
I had to do something.
Called the doctor, got a
prescription for antibiotic
and some cough medicine.
Stubborn me, I thought
that would take care of the
problem.
But that didn’t work and
by Tuesday afternoon, I
knew I was in real trouble.
I don’t remember much
of anything after 4 p.m.
Tuesday, until I woke up
in the Midland ICU late
Thursday afternoon.
I completely lost two
days and two nights from
my life, and found out a bit
later that I almost lost all
of the time I have left as
well. Daughter Lisa took
my hands in hers and said
through the tears, “I’m just
not ready to lose you yet
Mom.”
She said if I had waited
any longer “to do something,” I wouldn’t be here
now at all.
Friday, I started the long
haul back to “healthy”
hopefully. From here on
out, I have to learn how to
breathe correctly, eat correctly and take better care
of myself for my own sake
as well as for my family. I
just don’t want to see that
look on my son and daughter’s face again for a long,
long time.
I want to be here to see
all my grandchildren walk
down the aisle, if that is
their lot in life, or see them
earn their degree if that is
where life will be taking them. Whatever their
choices are, I want to be
there to see it happen.
I want to spend some
quality time enjoying life,
instead of always worrying over what I have to do
next.
I want years and years
left to spend with the love
of my life.
God willing some of this
will come true. I know I
will remember to be grateful for whatever I am given
from here on out – even if
it only means taking a little
extra time out to “smell the
roses.”
When I got home, there
was another little ceramic
angel waiting for me to go
with the first one. They are
watching over me from
a little shelf in the living
room.
My newest angel is
holding a bouquet of
roses…
Cooking & Recipes
How Angela saved her church
I was disappointed to
learn that a once vibrant
church was about to close.
Learning about those looming locked doors brought
memories of days when
that church had been one
of the most active in the
community.
A youth program had
flourished and missionary
work both at home and
abroad had high priority,
sending people and money
around the world from this
caring congregation.
Too bad that these good
people had lost their vision
of reaching out and had
started focusing on the
faults of their pastor and
other leaders.
Since it’s always easier
to be part of a faction than
to get into the action,
nearly every congregation contains members
who focus on faults rather
than on what Jesus called
the fields that are ready
to harvest. Looking ever
inward results in neglecting the needs of a troubled
world and this has caused
many churches to question
their reason for existing.
Closing the church then
may seem the only sensible
thing to do.
On the first day that
Angela arrived for Sunday
School, the few remaining
members of the church in
her community weren’t
expecting her. Actually,
though they were meeting at their regular starting
time, the members weren’t
planning to hold Bible
classes. Instead, they had
One of the things I
brought home from the
hospital with me Tuesday
was a little ceramic angel,
a gift from friends of son
Don who have “been
through and come out the
other side.”
I know exactly what that
little angel meant to them,
and what it means to me
now.
The length of time we
all have on planet Earth is
so uncertain. God, in his
infinite wisdom, has given
me another chance at life
and I intend to make the
most of it.
I have COPD and used
oxygen just at night for
several years now. Unfortunately I wasn’t maintaining or managing my COPD
like I thought – I haven’t
been sick, at least not to
realize that I was. Haven’t
even had bronchitis (once a
real problem every year) in
about three years.
Now realize that this
is me talking… everyone
around me in the family
could see how much my
breathing had deteriorated
in the past five years or so.
I just didn’t want to admit
it.
It is easy to be complacent – and stubborn. I am a
former long-time smoker,
from the “Mad Men” 60s
era, when everybody lit up
morning ‘til night. You just
never realize, or admit to
yourself what you might be
doing to your body in the
meantime. After all those

Little birds and big trees
We all know that the
logging industry here
is nothing new. It drove
Michigan’s first boom time.
Like much of the rest of the
state, our area was cleared
and settled by those who
worked in the woods. Our
little village of Marion was
founded as a mill site. The
forests and the timber trade
are the reason for many a
Michigan town and city.
And they are the reason that
many of us are here; men
who worked in the woods
founded many a local family, mine included. I am the
fifth generation to know my
particular part of the woods
and I’d like to think that I
know it pretty well. Some of the first
things I had to say in the
Marion Press in the early
1990’s, had to do with the
harvesting of trees in the
vast Jack pine forests of
Clare county. This was part
of the expansion of the
DNR’s Kirtland’s Warbler
project. It was a hot topic in
those days. People sought
to blame the bird for what
they saw as the rape of
the forest. The unaware,
rare and endangered little
warbler was reviled and
unjustly called all manner
of names. The whole thing
certainly was not the fault
of the little bird. It still isn’t
and fortunately, people have
learned that all in all the
harvest of the trees never
was a bad thing.
I will admit that when
it was first done, we were
somewhat shell shocked
over the removal of
hundreds and hundreds of
acres of trees. For a time
we became strangers in a
strange land. And then we
took a good look around and
found the change of scenery
and lessened fire threat to be
good. The vistas didn’t last
long and before we knew it,
the trees grew tall enough
to attract the Kirtland’s.
The purpose of all this is
reaffirmed every summer
when we hear the familiar
song of the singing males
amid the young, green trees.
It really is a win-win.
In Clare County’s
Summerfield Township they
are once again harvesting
vast tracts of over grown
Jack pine, scrub oak and red
pine forest. The Jack pine
and scrub oak forest has a
limited life span and, once
again, it has run its course
in this area. It has opened
up huge tracts of land and
changed the landscape
again. It is a bonus that the
Kirtland’s warbler does just
as the DNR planned and
will nest in the expanded
range. Each year the census
numbers of singing male
Kirtland’s warblers is up.
The removal of so much
dead wood in an area
heavily used by recreational
four-wheelers and dirt
bikes, greatly reduces the
chance of a catastrophic
conflagration. It’s another
win-win.
The Jack pine is a
relatively new comer to the
third-rate sandy soils of
central northern Michigan.
The 1856 survey of this area
does not mention Jack pine
but refers to it as pitch pine.
The forest here consisted
mainly of the white pine,
red pine, hemlock, white
and yellow spruce, cedars
and tamaracks, and various
hard and soft woods. The
pitch pine grew in ‘stands’
and a large area in what
would be Winterfield township was referred to as a
‘pine baron’ where only the
pines grew in the third rate
soils. It is much the same
today.
The Jack pine is a rather
remarkable nondescript
tree. It prefers a mild to
cool summer and a cold
winter with a moderate to
heavy snowfall. The Jack is
considered a ‘pioneer’ tree,
readily moving into burned
and exhausted sites. Much
of central and northern
Michigan was ripe for a
Jack pine invasion after vast
areas of native trees were
lumbered off. Michigan is
almost the southern limit of
the Jack pine’s range and
the central rolling and flat
sandy plains of northern
Michigan suit its needs
quite nicely.
A Jack pine has a relatively short life. A tree of
fifty years is elderly and
mostly dead. It develops
clusters of tight cones and
can retain them for years.
They require a hot summer temperature of over
80 degrees to open. They
will also open after a fire.
Jack pine seeds are favored
by red squirrels (as anyone
with a storage shed with
said squirrel in residence
can attest), some mice
and seed loving birds like
finches, robins and bronze
grackles. Seedlings sprout
rapidly and may attain a
growth of 8 inches in a
single season.
Since the first aspect of
this harvest project began in
Clare County twenty plus
years ago more than 3,400
acres of State and DNR
held lands in Winterfield
and Summerfield townships
have been or are scheduled
to be harvested of overmature Jack pines, black
oak and red pine. This paves
the way for a new Jack pine
forest and the warblers. The
Kirtland’s lays its three to
five cream colored speckled
eggs in a loose nest on the
ground under young Jacks,
six to eighteen feet tall,
interspersed with small open
areas. They require large
tracts of such trees in stands
of 320 acres or more. Each
breeding pair needs 30 acres
to call their own. They are
a shy and solitary creature.
Ultimately this one time
hot topic has proven to be
a good thing. The goal is to
create a strong and viable
breeding habitat for this rare
and most secretive song bird
and it is working. On another timely note,
we welcomed the arrival
of spring with a perfectly
timed standing of the eggs
on the 20th. It is said, and
proven, that at the time of
the official Equinox an egg
may be balanced on its end,
the fat one. The Gardener is
the expert here and, as is his
custom, he lined them up. It
is akin to getting your ducks
all in a row…pun intended.
Happy spring from the
Pines.

Reed City library decides against bond proposal
By Rosemary Horvath
Correspondent
The Reed City Area
District Library Board
of Trustees has decided
to pass on asking voters
to consider another bond
issue proposal intended to
renovate the building at
829 S. Chestnut.
David Bisbee, member
of the board’s new facilities committee announced
there will be no bond
issue at either the May or
August 2015 election.
“We will explore other
options for renovating the
building,” added Christine
Cox, district library board
president, in a phone interview Tuesday.
The library currently
leases a section inside the
Osceola County annex
building but the lease
which has been renewed
several times expires June
2016.
The district library
envisions the former office
building on South Chestnut as a permanent home
once the interior with
small offices is opened up
and made into a suitable
library space.
Voters turned down a
bond issue to renovate
the building August 2014
but approved sustainable
funding for operations for
10 years.

Below are steps in the
New Library Project:
*Solicit proposals from
architects/engineers to
develop specifications and
do inspections for interior
demolition at the South
Chestnut building.
*Request the city of

property through June 9,
2016 with the qualification
that the District Library
Board can initiate the deed
return sooner.
*Separate the used
