On November 10, the Crime Watch Programs of Big Prairie, Ashland and Ensley Center Townships took part in a tour of Christmas Party Sale

The evening began with a dinner that was attended by an estimated 70 to 80 residents of these townships. At 6 p.m. all of
us proceeded to White Cloud. Once there, we were met with more residents who did not attend the dinner. As we entered the FREE Presents To Be Given Away!
entrance to the jail, we were greeted by Deputy Phil Green, who attended the dinner, Under Sheriff Brian Boyd, and Lt. Tom
Greer. We then split into groups and different officers took the groups to tour different areas of the jail.
The tour started out at the Control Room, which monitors the inmates in the cell blocks. Lt. Greer explained all of the
procedures, why the cell blocks have TV’s, why inmates are allowed to make phone calls using pay phones, and how meals are
brought in. We learned about the federal inmate program, how this helped build the facility and how this jail is self supporting.
Next stop was the Visitor’s Room where we were told how the inmates visited with family and friends via a monitor and
phone system. We then proceeded to see the reception area, offi ces, interview room, evidence room, conference room, offi cer’s

The evening ended with cake, coffee, and great prizes were given away in a drawing. It was a very informative and inter-
esting evening. All of us residents need to be proud of our Sheriff’s Department and the new facility that we have. Big Prairie
Township Trustee’s Mary Anderson and Jan Westfield were extremely pleased with the large turnout for this tour. Monday
We wish to extend a big, heartfelt thank you to Deputy Sheriff Phil Green, Under Sheriff Brian Boyd and Lt. Tom Greer
and Lt. Chad Palmiter for making this tour possible. Also we want to give a big thank you to Barb Ryder and staff who set up the Nights

• Universal (school-wide or district-wide) screening of academics and behavior

• Multiple tiers of increasingly intense scientific, research-based interventions that
are matched to student need.
• Use of a collaborative approach by school staff for development, implementation,
and monitoring of the intervention process.
• Continuous monitoring of student progress during the interventions, using
objective information to determine if students are meeting goals.

The Attitude of Gratitude


In reflection of Thanksgiving Day: It is a day set aside to be thankful for our blessings. According to history, this was started by Auto., AC. Great Gas Mileage! V6, auto., loaded.

some early settlers in Massachusetts to celebrate a great harvest and blessings in spite of the hardships of coming to the “new
world”. Today this holiday is full of football games and over-eating. We should stop and think for a few minutes about being
thankful for many great people and things.
$ $
All of the great religions teach gratitude as an important part of our spiritual welfare. Being grateful to God is of highest
importance, and being thankful also has mental and emotional benefits. Our self esteem or self worth is extremely important
for sound health. How we feel about others is reflected in how we feel about our selves. When we have good self esteem we 2010 Jeep Wrangler 2009 Dodge Journey
will naturally see more worth in other people and we will be more grateful to others, just for being or for what they do for
us.
It is important that we appreciate our family, even though we may not like some of them and we always get in a fight over
Thanksgiving Dinner. That relative that we do not care for is here to teach us some kind of lesson. As soon as we learn the
lesson, then they will move away or become nicer and we do not have to fight any more. What really happens is that we
change and they simply were following along.
We must be thankful for our work. Work is an amazingly beneficial activity. It also increases our self worth, because we
can look back and see what we have accomplished for the day and feel good (most of the time). We must be thankful for
the men and women who produce the businesses that provide everything that we use in our daily lives. These producers Unlimited. 4 dr., V6, new 3-1/2” lift kit, new tires & wheels, 20,000 mi. AWD, auto., A/C, third row seat.

provide services and jobs, so we can eat and care for ourselves and our children. These business people are grateful for the
consumers who buy their goods and services. For the unemployed, it is a difficult time. But this is also a time to be grateful for
the assistance from others in our community and in our churches.
Last week I had a man in my office who was complaining that President Obama was a socialist. I laughed out loud (lol). I
knew he was on Social Security disability, Medicare and Medicaid. His defensive comment was that he 2006 Honda Ridgeline RTL 2006 Chrysler 300
had been injured and “could not help it if he could not work”. He finally understood that he should be
thankful for the social programs and socialist Presidents who have started these programs for people
who temporarily need help. In spite of lots of complaining about our government and the country, we
still live in the best place in the world. Be thankful you live in America.
It really does not matter what our situation is, we can be grateful about many things. We just need
to look at things in a different way. I would like to challenge everyone who reads this to stop for a
few minutes, and think of at least twenty things for which you are thankful. Write them down and tape
them to your May 2011 calendar. Then after six months, sit down with your list for a few minutes and
see what has happened to the items on your list. You will see that many good things have happened V6, auto., 4x4, leather, loaded. Touring, V6, auto. Sharp car!

Whistles, Windsynth & Other Toys…
Cal is a player of music, a maker of jewelry, a teller of stories, and a self-described “Jack of a Few Trades.”

Involved in music since childhood, it remains one of his core passions. Call is proficient on a wide variety
of wind, brass, keyboard and stringed instruments, using that ability to craft original sons, as well as arrange-
ments of hymn tunes and popular classical pieces.

He performs on a number of unusual instruments, including Irish low whistles, recorders, ocarina, me-
lodica, and an electronic instrument call a Wind Controller or Windsynth. The Windsynth sends digital
information about notes, expressions, etc. to a sound module which allows Cal to emulate the sound of

30 RIVER VALLEY NEWS SHOPPER • MONDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2010

Michigan Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm has proclaimed October as


“Michigan Car-Deer Crash Safety Awareness Month.”
In Michigan in 2009 there were 61,486 reported car-deer crashes with 10 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.
