CROP/HUNGER Walk Meeting set for July 28

The final meeting to prepare for this year’s CROP/HUNGER Walk is set for July 28 at 7 p.m. at Heritage United Methodist Church. This is a community event organized by volunteers and supported by several local churches. The walk has become an annual charity fund raiser here in the Panhandle region of Montcalm County. CROP, which stands for Communities Responding To Overcome Poverty, is a nationwide event with each community establishing their own walk. The goal is to raise money to help

feed the hungry. The money donated goes to fund a variety of programs nationally and worldwide. However 1/4 of all monies raised stays in our local community. It will be donated to Help- ing Hands, our local food pantry. Anyone interested in becoming involved in this very worth- while event is urged to attend the upcoming meeting. Walk organizers hope to match last years outstanding success. They stress that this is a community event and that community sup- port is essential. Volunteers are needed to make it happen.

Free Fair to host Agricultural Commission hearing

IONIA — Farmers across Michigan will have a unique opportunity to discuss their agricultural interests and concerns at an influencial level at this year’s Ionia Free Fair. 70th State House District Rep. Mike Huckleberry, (D-Greenville) chairman of the Michigan Standing Committee on Ag- riculture, will hold a special committee hearing July 23 at 2 p.m. in the fair’s Mer- chant Building. Attendees will hear presentations from the Michigan Potato Industry Commis- sion, Michigan Corn Growers Associa- tion, the Michigan Soy Bean Association, and E.J. Brown of the Michigan Fairs and Events Association. Jim Byrum, president of the Michigan Agri-Business Association (MABA) en- dorsed Huckleberry’s efforts to reach out and give voice and opportunity to farmers’ concerns. “Rep. Huckleberry truly understands how important agriculture is to Michigan workers and our economy,” Byrum said. Linda Curtis, assistant manager of the Ionia Free Fair, said scheduling of the of- ficial state hearing underscores the fair’s focus on its commitment to represent ag- riculture as a major part of fair activities. “We are excited and honored that Rep. Huckleberry has gathered such a diverse group of agricultural industry representa- tives to address the concerns of the Michi- gan farming community,” Curtis said. “This really is the heart and soul of what county fairs are supposed to be about.” Curtis said anyone wishing to pres- ent written testimony at the official state hearing will need to supply 30 copies for distribution to commission members. Dates of this year’s Ionia Free Fair are July 22 – 31.

The Stadtkapelle Wertingen Jugen- dorchester will visit the Howard City/ Sand Lake area from August 11 through the 14th as part of the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp International Exchange pro- gram. Members of the 74 piece wind band will stay in private homes while visiting, according to Howard Wilson, chairman of a committee that is making the ar- rangements for the group’s visit. While here, the group will perform

a special “Music in the Park” concert on Thursday, August 12 at 7 pm. They

will perform works by classic composers as well as works by more contemporary band composers. The group hails from Wertingen, Germany which is just to the northwest of Munich. They will travel to Blue Lake and perform a concert there on August 13th as well. Blue Lake is best known for the Fine Arts Camp that it operates each summer about six miles east of Whitehall. Over 5,000 talented young musicians—mostly from Michigan and other Mid-Western states are expected to attend Blue Lake this summer.

Over 6,000 high school musicians from BLFAC have visited 650 communi- ties in Europe since the program began in 1970. In return, nearly 10,000 members of 450 European and Japanese bands, orchestras, choirs and dance groups have come to Michigan to perform here and throughout the Midwest. While touring Europe, Blue Lake groups also stay in private homes with host families, just as the visiting groups do here. Nearly 1,000 young American and European musicians are expected to par-

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Reader encourages voters to cast ballot for Tillman on Aug. 3

TO THE EDITOR:

I’ve been worried about government spending for many years. We

watch Glenn Beck as often as we can, but I feel republicans are just as re- sponsible for our current fiscal problems as democrats. I do feel we have options but they will mean democrats and republicans both working for spending cuts. Scott Tillman is a candidate for state representative who has spoken extensively about reducing the size of government. Scott is

a republican who understands government must live within its means.

I am voting for Scott Tillman August 3rd and I hope enough people will support him so we can finally get some responsible representation. AnDREA BlAcHfORD newaygo

Do You Recall?

Compiled by Virginia Tully

1950 – Marshall Bill Hawkins of

Morley, a former cowboy and rodeo contestant from Texas, is beginning a new part-time career as a rodeo judge after deciding that the actual ropin’

and ridin’ belong to the younger gen- erations. Carl Mero is the new Rural Route 2 Post Carrier for Lakeview replacing William Raglin who recently passed away and is still greatly missed.

1960 – Lakeview’s Little Pee-Wee

baseball team continued their victory streak by winning three ball games in the past two weeks. Army Pvt. William Ogg of Mor- ley recently qualified as expert in fir- ing the carbine rifle. He is currently serving with the 3rd Ordinance Com- pany on Fort Campbell, KY.

1975 – Marine Lance Corporal David

Schuttle of Lakeview has completed a training deployment at the Marine Corps Air Station, Kaneohe Bay, Ha- waii, where he was taught survival techniques. Trufant has received a $100,000.00 project grant to expand

the local telephone office, now serv- ing more than 1,100 customers.

1995 – Whether it was straight line

winds or really a tornado is of little matter to the folks of Amble as Sat- urday’s afternoon storm did enough

damage to be either. An old time block party was held recently at Townline Lake with enough food to fill several Thanks- giving tables along with plenty of toe-tapping music.

Not Wanted — Michigan Feral Swine

What is a Feral Swine?

Feral Swine (Sus scrofa) is defined as a free-ranging pig and is considered to be an exotic animal that is a public nuisance. The appearance of feral swine may vary greatly as they are be- lieved to be derived from several sources which may include: the wild European boar, escaped domestic swine and/or hybrids of the two types. The goal for Michigan is complete removal of feral swine.

Current Law in Michigan -

New law in Michigan as of June 1, 2010 allows individuals

to pursue and harvest feral swine at any time. House Bill 5822 (H- 2) enacts Section 4a of Public Act 328 of 1976, which concerns animals running at large, to do the following:

n Declare that swine running

at large on public and/or private property are a public nuisance.

n Permit a local animal con-

trol officer or a law enforcement officer to kill a swine running at large on public or private prop- erty. n Permit a person with a concealed pistol permit or a val- id hunting license to kill a swine running at large on public prop- erty.

n Permit the property owner

or other authorized person to kill a swine running at large on pri- vate property. The land owner does not need a hunting license.

n Note: If you plan to pursue

and harvest feral swine it is im- perative that you follow all regu- lations of the respective open hunting season in which you may be pursuing feral swine. For open seasons and regu- lations, you may view the most current Michigan Hunting and Trapping Guide. www.michigan. gov/dnr

Distribution: Feral swine have been identified in 40 states ranging from California to New Jersey and from Texas to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. In Michigan, feral swine have been reported in 68 of the 83 counties. To view a map with feral swine locations visit www.michigan. gov/feralswine.

Validated

Concerns in regards to Feral Swine

Disease: It has been report- ed that feral swine may carry at least 30 viral and bacterial dis- eases in addition to a minimum of 37 parasites that affect people, pets, livestock and wildlife. Reproduction: The time to

take action is now: Feral Swine are very efficient reproducers and are capable of breeding at 6 months of age. The gestation pe- riod of a sow is around 115 days.

Furthermore, depending on conditions, a female is capable of having 2 litters of piglets per year with anywhere from 4 to 12 piglets per litter. The young are typically born with a 1:1 male to female sex ratio.

Food Services

Feral Swines are omni- vores, meaning that they will eat both plant and animal mat- ter. It is safe to say that feral swine are opportunistic feeders and will eat just about anything that they can get their mouth around. Therefore, feral swine are directly competing for food sources with livestock and wild- life. Food sources may depend on what is seasonable available and may range from a variety of agricultural crops including:

corn, wheat, soybeans to acorns, grasses, fruits, vegetables, roots, insects, snails, earthworms, rep- tiles, birds, eggs, carrion (dead animals), as well as live mam- mals given the opportunity.

Armed and Damaging

Feral Swine can be relatively aggressive when confronted, es- pecially if the animal is a boar

or a sow with piglets. There- fore, caution should be used when confronting feral swine. Additionally, feral swine can be extremely destructive to the en- vironment and ecologically sen- sitive habitats. Behaviors such as rooting, tramping, digging and wallowing near water leads to bank erosion, muddying of wa- ter, creating algae blooms, and potentially destroying aquatic vegetation, therefore lowering overall water quality.

sightings, kills, and damage us- ing the contact information be- low:

Worry

Worry is something most of us have experienced at least a few times in our lives. I can recall as

a child worrying when my parents were away from home. I remember making a bright vivid movie

in my mind of Mom and Dad in a car accident, lying in a ditch somewhere or in the hospital, half dead. Even as an adult, I sometimes feel myself going down that road. But instead of anxiety, I have learned to create a better calm empowering situation.

It is important to know that we can learn this. There are internal and external triggers for worry. The outside things are often beyond our control, although sometimes it is a situation we have created ourselves. Sometimes we are innocently ignorant, or lazy, or defiant, or forgetful and we neglect things. For example, if we do not pay our taxes, we will have something to worry about. We created the situation and now some one else is going to take care of it. This creates much worry. Sometimes it is internal things that worry us. For example an illness can make us worry a lot. The solution to worry is on two fronts: If there is something you can do, do it now. If you have not paid a bill, call the creditor and work it out. Stop putting it off, fix it now. If there is nothing you can do outwardly, then you have to learn to make internal changes. Anxiety and emotions from worry are from chemical changes in our body. Learning to relax and meditate helps

a lot. Writing down the end solution, not thinking about how it will get

done; just writing down the final outcome will set your creative mind to work to bring about a solution. This will also allow you to have some peace of mind because you are thinking about it being over, not about being stuck in the problem. Remember to pray the solution, not the problem.

the problem. Remember to pray the solution, not the problem. Fix it, change it, let the

Fix it, change it, let the problem go, and focus on the best outcome.
