Stage play
brings area
families
together
Christmas is certainly a time when most
people gather with family and friends for fun
and frivolity. Its just a given nowadays. Fami-
lies look for creative ways to enjoy the tidings
of the season. Some volunteer their time at a
soup kitchen, some might wander their neigh-
borhood streets singing Christmas carols and
some might hop in the car one evening and
drive miles just to look at thousands of Christ-
mas lights.
But, for a small group of people in northern
Kent County, theyve chosen to celebrate their
Christmas holidays by taking to the stage. The
cast and crew of The Christmas Carol, which
numbers well over 40, is comprised largely of
people who just happen to be related to each
other.
The production director boasts that its
truly a family affair.
Its wonderful to see so many families in-
volved in such a fashion, said Terri Riggle,
production stage director. Theyre having fun
and spending a lot of time together in a worth-
while project.
Ebenezer Scrooge, is played by Rockfords
Virgil Hubbard, and his wife, Kathleen, whos
making her acting debut on the Kent Theatre
stage, is playing the wife of the character Fred,
Scrooges nephew. Cedar Springs resident Russ
Cole, whos Bob Cratchit, is also given singing
direction under the guidance of his wife Carol-
ee, whos the productions music director, and
Laura Johnson, who plays Christmas Present,
also enjoys being on stage with her son, Tom,
who plays Young Scrooge.
And the list continues. There are two
mother and daughter combinations, Judy and
BreAnna Schulz of Howard City and Eva Wal-
ters and her daughter, Mystic also from How-
ard City. Then theres the Price family, all from
Cedar Springs, who have four out of their fve
members involved in the play. Jon, the father,
is playing dual roles of Mr. Fezziwig and the
Ghost of Christmas Future, his wife, Tammy,
is Mrs. Fezziwig, son Jordan is Dick Wilkins

Ed was born July 29, 1927, in
Sand Lake, the son of Glenn and

up on a small farm just outside the

family of 10 brothers and sisters: Au-

in the Army for two years after he
graduated from Sand Lake School.
When he returned home, he married
Marian Wulff on Nov. 29, 1947. Ed and Marian were
always together with smiles on their faces. They were
a match made in heaven. Ed and Marian raised their
fve children, John, Larry, Bill, Steve and Susan. During
his childrens younger years he was a Boy Scout leader,
helped with youth boxing and coached baseball teams.
We all remember Ed as a hard worker. He worked as a
welder at a few small companies. He worked in main-
tenance at Wolverine World Wide. He served as union
president. He retired after 20 years of dedication. He
was an active man. Prior to his diagnosis of Parkinsons
disease, he stayed busy. He loved the outdoors, hunt-
ing, fshing, camping and golfng. He spent many win-
ters in Florida where he could enjoy them year round.
Like most of the Goulds he loved his tractors, JOHN
DEERE tractors. He also enjoyed visiting Buckley for
the annual Antique Tractor Show. Ed was a family man.
His grandchildren were his life. Grandpa and Grandma
Goulds house was visited often. It was where memories
were made. Taking us on trips to the cabin in Idlewild,
smelt dipping and camping. John Edward Goulds leg-
acy is strong.

Bureau and the South Ensley United Methodist Church

opportunity to speak at the 1994 graduation com-
mencement, where he dared students to have faith in
the Creator, in their dreams, to share their possessions,
and to be thankful for the country they live in. Harry
will be remembered for his strong faith, smile, laugh,
kindness, energy, love of family and friends, incredible
love for life, and his tenacity in work. He was a public
servant. Harry was a very, very special man and an in-
tegral part of the community. Harry left us a legacy of
good faith, good works and good will. He was an impor-
tant part of our lives, simply a good man. God will say
Well done, good and faithful servant. He was always
the same positive, easy-going person, who brought
smiles to everyone.

A big thank you
Thank You Another successful
feat for the local VFW Post 3306. On
Nov. 13th, they put on a Thanksgiving
dinner for Veterans from the home
in Grand Rapids and local Veterans.
Commander Dennis and his crew are to
be commended for the work and dedi-
cation they put into this. They have a
band playing at the Veterans enter and
throughout their meal, after their meal
they play Bingo. What a rewarding
evening for all. Thank You Dennis and
crew. Dee Becker
Looking for support
TO THE EDITOR:
When you read this I am sure a few
of you will say; there she goes again. but
that is fne, I do believe that when our lo-
cal VFW Post 3306 under the leadership
of Commander Dennis and his honor
guard Rick, Bill, Bob, Al, Tony, George,
Elmer, Jim, Dick, Dee, and Steve put on
a Veterans Day Service of any kind that
more of the community could show up
and pay respect by attending these ser-
vices. After all if it wasnt for these men
and women you would not be living in
a free country. On Memorial Day they
put on a Memorial Service at 4 cemeter-
ies and 2 memorials, they are in parades
throughout the year. They are to be com-
mended for the job they do, as they pass
in review it would be great if you could
salute, put you hand over your heart, re-
move your hat or stand and just shake
a hand or say thank you. I would like
to thank the Kindergarten through 2nd
grade classes for the wonderful banners
they made and are on display at the Post
Home. Thank You.

Montcalm County possesses some
startling statistics. According to the
Michigan State Police Crash Statistics
for 2010 there were 960 vehicle crashes
involving 10-16 year olds under the infu-
ence of alcohol in the State. In Montcalm
County there were 76 vehicle crashes
involving 10-16 year olds with 1 fatality
and 40 serious injuries. Further, accord-
ing to the Michigan Profle for Healthy
Youth surveys, during the past 30 days,
for Montcalm County high school youth,
15.6 percent of our 9th graders and 22.3
percent of our 11th graders have had fve
or more alcoholic drinks in a row within
a couple of hours. This is called binge
drinking episodes,. Local community
surveys indicate that 31 percent of our
parents don,t know if there is an alcohol
problem here. Obviously, since so many
of our teens are participating in binge
drinking this is defnitely a problem.
In an attempt to address youth access
to alcohol and tobacco, a series of Alco-
hol and Tobacco Compliance Checks with
businesses selling Alcohol and Tobacco
have recently been completed. Working
as a team with Law Enforcement offcers
and underage decoys (buyers), we were
able to complete a number of compli-
ance checks. All efforts in this project are
greatly appreciated. During the Tobacco
Compliance Checks 67 sites were visited
with 9 selling (13.43 percent) and during
the Alcohol Compliance Checks 32 sites
were visited with 5 selling (15.63 per-
cent).
Each of the underage buyers pos-
sessed a valid driver,s license or State ID
with RED lettering indicating the date
they would be legal to purchase the sub-
stances. In most of the cases the clerk did
not ask for the ID. In a few cases, how-
ever, they actually looked at the ID and
still sold to the youth.
We would like to acknowledge those
businesses that PASSED the compliance
checks and thank them for working to
prevent the sales of alcohol and tobacco
products to underage youth.

Tri County School News
ACADEMI CS ARTS ATHLETI CS ACHI EVEMENT
November 28, 2011
By Olivia Barrett
On October 28, Tri County High School welcomed published author and
Pierson native Bruce Jenvey. He quickly settled into the library, where a sign
was posted in his honor, and spoke to different students each period of the
day. Jenvey talked about everything from the production of his book to his
career prior to writing. After earning a degree in advertising from Michigan
State University, he worked in the eld and, after changing his career path
once more, eventually landed in writing. His story, however, comes with a bit
of a twist - Jenvey was so secretive about writing his rst book that his wife
thought he was having an affair!
Jenveys book, Angelas Coven, is currently available as an e-book. The
book sold more copies in its rst week than its publishing company ever has.
Call us crazy, but wed say hes pretty successful. TCHS students seemed to
agree, as they listened intently to his every word and asked intelligent, well
thought-out questions after each class periods speech. The event was part of NHS and the TC administrations efforts to
show students that graduating from TCHS should be seen more as a privilege than a disadvantage.
Tri County Middle Schools Student Council has kicked off their
annual Toys for Tots campaign. Last year the middle school collected
over 1,000 toys. Those toys were distributed directly to Montcalm
area children. Each year there seems to be a shortage of gifts for older
children at the middle school age range. While you are out doing
your Black Friday shopping grab an extra gift for a child and drop it
off at the middle school collection box located in the ofce or in your
childs classroom. Put a smile on a childs face this holiday season.
Preparing for the holidays? Got some shopping or baking to do?
Come check out McNaughtons Christmas Community Showcase
and accomplish both. Crafts, handmade items, Scentsy and Premier
Jewlers to name a few. There will be a Toys for Tots drop-box available
if you would like to donate an unwrapped gift. The shop is open on
December 2, from 5 p.m. 8 p.m. at MacNaughton Elementary.
MacNaughton Elementary celebrated Veterans
Day by raising a new American ag donated by the
Howard City, VFW. In recognition of the VFWs
donation the staff and students wore red, white, and
blue, recited The Pledge of Allegiance and quietly
watched as principal Tim Goheen and Sergeant Matt
Teesdale, raised the new ag. MacNaughton students
showed their appreciation for veterans everywhere,
by making Thank You banners, which were
presented to the VFW on Thursday.

Tri County School News
ACADEMI CS ARTS ATHLETI CS ACHI EVEMENT
November 28, 2011
The Tri County National Honor Society
(NHS) needs your help. They are looking to
create an alumni wall of success with portraits
and information about TC alumni who, after
graduation became outstanding in their career/
eld/college, or have a successful career in
an unexpected eld, or made extraordinary
contributions for the community. They want to
inspire the current students that they too can
excel after graduation. In order to complete
this project, they need help nding the names,
stories, and even contact information for some
of TCs outstanding alumni.
If you know someone whose story/
accomplishments would be perfect to
demonstrate how TC grads can achieve great
things, please contact Sandee Babb at the high
school: sbabb@tricountyschools.com or at
231-937-4338.
If you have construction, printing or
metalworking skills or resources and would be
interested in helping the NHS with the building
of this project or have materials or resources to
donate for the alumni wall installation, please
contact Mrs. Babb to go over the plans and
what is needed. The NHS would love to have
community members involved in helping make
this project a source of pride at Tri County.
By Olivia Barrett
On Wednesday, November 2, the yearbook students and other students
interested took a trip to Ferris State University for a day of journalism.
Students took classes in Interviewing for Journalistic Writing, Storytelling
With Photography, Sports Writing and Interviewing, and Storytelling
With Cinematography in the morning. Afternoon classes were Writing
as a Career and School Newspapers. Lunch and a t-shirt were included.
Attendees enjoyed the workshop because it showed them sides of the
journalism eld not often shown in school.
Prior to lunch, students chose two of the four aforementioned morning
classes. Storytelling With Video taught them about the three stages of
quality cinematography (pre-production, shooting and post-production/
editing). The importance of knowing how to compose eye-catching photos,
particularly the rule of thirds and framing, was preached in the Storytelling
With Photography class. Because many area students dont often have the
opportunity to write or interview for topics like sports, the Sports Writing
and Interviewing class was popular. Interviewing for Journalistic Writing
was also a full class. In the afternoon, many TC students attended the
School Newspaper class. They enjoyed this class because, at the present
moment, our high school is lacking a newspaper of any sort; it presented
them with new ideas and outlets to create one. To wrap things up, the
vast majority of TCHS students attended Writing as a Career. All in all,
TCHS students enjoyed their FSU journalism trip because it taught them
to think outside the box with new forms of media (digital) while still
highlighting the importance of the old school forms.

Hunter Harrassment Overview
Agency: Natural Resources
Hunters in Michigan have the right to enjoy their sport free from unreasonable and
deliberate interference from those opposed to hunting as a legitimate use of public
land and other natural resources.
Michigan law prohibits individuals from obstructing or interfering with the law-
ful taking of animals. The Department of Natural Resources supports hunting as a
legitimate form of recreation and as a useful tool in the management of the wildlife
resource. Michigan conservation ofcers are committed to protecting hunters from
the intentional disruption of the hunting experience.
Individuals, whose hunting is being obstructed, should promptly report the viola-
tion to the DNR toll free complaint line at 1-800-292-7800, a local conservation
ofcer, or the nearest DNR ofce facility.
Hunter harassment is a misdemeanor offense. Law enforcement ofcers may issue
a citation for violations which take place in their presence, or may arrest with a war-
rant obtained on information provided by the affected hunter. Acting in cooperation
with each other, the hunter and the conservation ofcer can be an effective team in
ensuring the full protection of Michigans hunters.
In order for an enforcement effort to be effective, the hunter should be prepared,
pay attention to details, contact a law enforcement ofcer and most important, be
willing to take the issue to court and provide credible testimony in any court pro-
ceedings.
Hunters should note the following points; who, what, where, when, and how when
reporting any physical or other deliberate hunter anti-hunter confrontation. The
hunter should not under any circumstances become involved in a physical confron-
tation with any individual. Hunters being harassedshould inform the harasser of
their feelings and request the
harassment to stop.
The burden of proof in any
criminal prosecution is on
the accuser. To successfully
prosecute any person for ha-
rassment of another, it must
be proven beyond a reason-
able doubt that the person
intentionally or knowingly
committed the violation.

Game Heads, Mammals, and Fish
To all you great Deer Hunters! Just a few eld tips for your trophy
Buck. If its not below 32 degrees you need to cape your deer as soon
as possible, no more than one day. Three days if it is. Cut around the
deer behind the shoulders, cut the front legs off just above the knees
and skin the deer up to the head and cut off. Put in plastic bag and
freeze it or take to your taxidermist. I will be happy to do it for you if
you bring it to me. Good Luck, and safe hunting. ~ Steve Pritchard

In Michigan in 2010 there were 55,867
reported car-deer crashes with 11 mo-
torists killed and 1,277 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 six in
the states 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:
Dont swerve!
Brake rmly
Hold on to the steering wheel.
Stay in your lane.
Bring your vehicle to a controlled stop.
We at Hills Body Shop have noticed an increase in deer hits in the month of October through December
and a big surge directly after the end of Daylight Savings, because more people are still on the road at
sunset.
If you have had the misfortune of hitting a deer, Hills 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 its 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 unethi-
cal to cheapen your vehicle repair to save your insurance company money. Youre our customer, not
your insurance companys. Hills Body Shop, Inc. has always and will always provide the nest repairs
available.
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/

Smartphones are computers. Computers on the
move. They are easily accessible to you and to
every recipient person, computer, phone, or social
networking site that sees a picture sent from your
smartphone. Typically data about your phone and
where it is geolocation-wise travels with pictures
you send. Once the photos make it to a social net-
working site, its easy to nd your home location
from there. Even for non-nerdy folk. Amazing.
Orwellian.
Their convenience exacts a price. The price of
this amazing technology can be high. Because
they are computers, some form of computer virus,
worm, or malware could damage or disable your
smartphone. A hacker could make your phone
retrieve programs or information from another in-
fected system to be used by the hacker later. They
can obtain personal data about you, for their own
gain think identity theft. Some Apps (Applica-
tions) have been purposefully developed to allow
the programmer access to your Smartphones user
information, such as a credit card numbers used to
buy over the phone, or social security numbers or
your private account passwords.
How will you know your phones been taken?
Its highly unlikely youll know when your smart-
phones been hacked. But on rare occasion clues
appear: What you see on the screen may seem
suspicious. Your phones capabilities may be com-
promised, it might work slowly, might not feel
just right, or could be refusing your commands.
If your phone has a mind of its own, perhaps an
outsider is in control. Does your phone turn on or
off by itself? Are there too many calls in your log
from numbers you dont recognize?
Smart users protect their phones. As soon as you
get your rst smartphone,
Install an anti-virus program. Always keep
the AV software current. Use it frequently. Search
for anti-virus programs on your computer, research
their efciency and performance. Google offers
AVG Antivirus, and SMS AVG Mobilation for
Droids. Opera, WhatsApp Messenger, MyMobile
- many others, some free, most low-cost.
iPhones have the luxury of built-in protec-
tion from worms and viral Apps because
all iPhone Apps are available only through
Apples iTunes. And TrendMicro offers
Smart Surng, an App that prevents infec-
tion for iPhone users who frequently surf the
web.
Before downloading an App, check it out. Is
it reputable? How often has the App been
reviewed? Whos the manufacturer?
As boring as it seems, read the Terms and
Conditions for the App to see how much
information you will share with the manu-
facturer. Choose Apps that want only the in-
formation needed to perform their function.
Dont give out your social security number.
Use a proven, reliable, backup program to
store your telephones contents in the clouds.
Unless youre a fearless risktaker or have the
nerd gene, dont try a backup by jailbreaking
or rooting your phone, which invites worms
(for sure if you didnt understand this sen-
tence).
Always turn off your GPS and geolocation
when you arent using it. Most Droids have
an icon to do this. Or use your privacy set-
tings.
Simplest of all, but maybe hardest to manage,
dont let your phone get away in someone
elses pocket.

Hypnosis
Last year Barb and I took some training in Hypnosis. The purpose was to use this to help discover some of our own issues
and to bring back tools that we can use to help others who come to The Healing Center.
Having mentioned this to some friends, someone commented that Hypnosis scared her. This is actually a very common
reaction. Why? Most of it is because of movies, television, or stage hypnosis. We have all seen the scary movie or TV show
in which someone is hypnotized into a zombie who does horrible things to others. Or we have seen stage hypnosis where
someone is made to cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog while jumping around on stage. We must remember that this is all
entertainment.
Others are afraid of this because of their religious upbringing. I was raised to think that Hypnosis was a tool of the devil.
Mom told us that during a hypnotic trance demons and entities could possess us. Of course, what person wants to be
possessed? I always wondered how this could be the devils work if it was used to help people stop drinking, stop smoking,
loose weight, overcome stress / anxiety / anger and heal themselves?
Think about some normal things that happen every day in our lives. We have all experienced that fuzzy state when we
were between being awake and asleep. Frequently we daydream. Have you ever been driving a long distance and suddenly
woke up, not really knowing how you got to this exit? During a shower, or while working on a factory assembly line, we do
these things so automatically that our mind goes somewhere else. How many of us watch television or movies and become
entranced (that is what the advertisers count on). What about when we become engrossed in a book? Did you ever have the
feeling of drifting off during church even though you were not tired?
These are all normal everyday events that are actually hypnotic states. When tests were done with EEG (brain wave tests),
it was found that our brain produces four different kinds of brain waves. Beta brain waves occur when
we are wide awake. Alpha waves happen when we day dream, do repetitive work, during prayer,
when we drift off to sleep, every time we have a dream (5-6 times per night), within 5 minutes of sitting
down to watch a movie or TV show, and during hypnosis. Theta waves occur during deeper sleep,
during extreme pain, and during anesthesia (for dentistry or surgery). This state is also associated with
some nerve pills and sleeping pills. Finally Delta waves occur during the deepest sleep.
We all have automatic habits, and repetitive emotional reactions to things. If these behaviors help us
in our daily lives, we will want to keep them. If they are harmful and limiting, we may want to change
them. The subconscious part of our mind is what controls all of our behavior and reactions, good or
bad. Hypnosis is a nice way to get into that programming part of our brain to change some of those
less than benecial activities.
We should be excited. We now have tools to learn to manage this part of our mind.
