BUSINESS AFTER HOURS Unearth The


Mystery of the
Silver Lake
Creature
An enchanting world awaits young readers
as authors Rose Mitchell and Kayla Obenchain
collaborate in a new book released through Xli-
bris. Wet Willie: The True Story of the Silver
Lake Creature unveils the mystery that lurks
beneath the peaceful surface of an inviting dark
blue lake.
Where he came from, no one knows, but
there is a large creature that lives in Silver Lake
State Park in Michigan. Captivating in its ap-
pearance, the water is in light blue, where it is
shallow, and dark, where it is deep. One day, a
little girl visits the lake with her grandparents.
Swimming only in the light-colored water for
she could not swim, the girl encounters the
mysterious creature. From the dark, deep wa-
ter, the Silver Lake Creature talks to the girl and
tells her that his name is Wet Willie, invitingly
luring her to play with him in the dark water.
But the little girl refuses, making Wet Willie
sad. Nevertheless, that does not stop the crea-
ture from inviting anyone to come with him.
Not long, a group of tourists excitedly wan-
ders through the lake and swims into the dark
water. Unaware of the existence of the lake
creature, one of them is eaten by Wet Willie.
Providing a spellbinding feel of excitement,
Wet Willie: The True Story of the Silver Lake
Creature chronicles the other unfortunate
events that create the mystery of the lake. This
book will entertain both young and adults with
its gripping story and vibrantly illustrated im-
ages. For more information on this book go to
www.Xlibris.com.

Michigan Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm has proclaimed October as


“Michigan Car-Deer Crash Safety Awareness Month.”
In Michigan in 2008 there were 61,010 reported car-deer crashes with 12 motorists killed and 1,648
injured. About 80 percent of all car-deer crashes take place on two-lane roads between dusk and dawn.
(Of the reported car-deer accidents Kent County is number one and Montcalm County is number five in
the state’s highest accident rate).
What can you do?
• Stay aware, awake, alert, and sober.
• Remember, safety belts are your best defense in any collision.
• Be alert for deer in spring and fall, especially at dawn and dusk.
• Heed deer crossing and speed limit signs, particularly on two-lane roads.
If a crash is unavoidable:
• Don’t swerve!
• Brake firmly
• Hold on to the steering wheel.
• Stay in your lane.
• Bring you vehicle to a controlled stop.
We at Hill’s Body Shop have noticed an increase in deer hits in the month of October through December
and a big surge directly after the time change, because more people are still on the road at sunset.
If you have had the misfortune of hitting a deer, Hill’s Body Shop, Inc. is here to help restore your ve-
hicle to its pre-accident condition. Your insurance company may refer you to one of their “preferred”
repair facilities. These body shops have an agreement with your insurance company to keep down the
cost of your vehicle repair in exchange for referrals. We believe it’s not in your best interest to take
your vehicle to these contracted repair shops. We believe safety and quality should come before cost,
whereas these “preferred” shops seem to put cost before quality and safety. We believe it to be unethical
to cheapen your vehicle repair to save your insurance company money. You’re our customer, not your
insurance company’s. Hill’s Body Shop, Inc. has always and will always provide the finest repairs avail-
able regardless of DRP contracts.
For more information about what you can do to avoid a car-deer accident and what to do if you do have
a car-deer accident, please visit our website http://www.hillsbodyshop.com/
