Today: Cloudy with numerous rain showers with possible snow showers and freezing rain in the morning, then partly sunny with scattered rain showers in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 30s. West winds 5 to 15 mph with gusts to around 30 mph. Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the lower 30s. South winds 5 to 10 mph with gusts to around 30 mph. MARINE REPORT *****  SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 PM EST THIS AFTERNOON ***** Today: SW wind 10 to 15 knots with gusts to around 25 knots. Numerous showers early int he morning. Waves 2 to 4 feet. Tonight: South wind 10 to 15 knots with gusts to around 20 knots. Mostly cloudy. Waves 2 to 3 feet.

 

On this date of December 5, 1945 – The so-called “Lost Squadron” disappeared. The five U.S. Navy Avenger bombers carrying 14 Navy flyers began a training mission at the Ft. Lauderdale Naval Air Station. They were never heard from again.

 

Did you know that the number 1 reason why people purchase a mobile phone is for safety?

 

Word of the day: campanology (kam-puh-NOL-uh-jee) which means the principles or art of making bells, bell ringing, etc. The Late Latin noun campāna (plural campānae) meant “bell,” so called because bells were made in Campania (which means “wide, level plain”), whose chief city has always been Naples.

 

About 400 A.D. St. Paulinus of Nola (c354–c431), bishop of Nola, commissioned a large bell to be cast to summon Christians to worship. The Italian word for bell is campana, which has the derivatives campanile, the distinctive bell tower of an Italian church (as opposed to a steeple) and campanilismo, local rivalry, usually petty, sometimes fierce.

 

The word entered English in the 1820s in the sense “the art of bell ringing.”

Condolences

The death has occurred of Nora (Hannah) DUFFY (née Collins)

Highfield Park, Galway City, Galway / Rathkeale, Limerick

 

 

John, Nora and children came to the Island several times when John was practicing medicine in Chicago in the 70’s. Many of us have fond memories of them on Jewell and Rita’s porch or in Mary Bert’s front yard and Bing getting a piece of plywood to lay in the yard for dancing. Some of us who have been to Ireland would see John, Nora or some of the children. She has left a hole in many hearts…Marie

 

Kathryn L. “Kathy” Blalock, age 68, passed away peacefully November 28, 2016 at Borgess Medical Center.

 

She loved the outdoors and especially loved Beaver Island and spending time at their Sand Bay cottage on the island. Kathy was an avid sailor and enjoyed boating and fishing, playing golf, hiking and a good book.

 

A memorial service to celebrate Kathy’s life will be held on Monday, December 5, 2016 at Langeland Family Funeral Home, Westside Chapel, 3926 South 9th Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49009. The family will greet friends for the hour prior to the memorial service, 10 AM – 11 AM, followed by the memorial service at 11:00 AM with a luncheon immediately following the service.

 

For anyone wishing to make a memorial in honor of Kathy’s life, please consider the Beaver Island Rural Health Center Endowment Fund, c/o Charlevoix County Community Foundation, P. O. Box 718, East Jordan, MI 49727, or any charity of your choosing. For obituary and condolences, please see Kathyrn’s personalized page at www.langelands.com.

Hey, Let’s be careful out there. Especially in the school zone.

 

To Lucas and all our listeners, most of us have areas in ourselves, where we can continue to develop. This should be a never-ending process and is the best investment we can make.

 

On a lighter note, what’s the best thing about Switzerland? I’m not sure, but their flag is a big plus!!!

Word of the day: laicism (LELY-uh-siz-uh m) which means the nonclerical, or secular, control of political and social institutions in a society (distinguished from clericalism). Laicism is formed from the adjective laic, from the Late (Christian) Latin adjective lāicus, which in turn comes from the Greek adjective and noun lāikós “of the people, common, unofficial, a layman.” It entered English in the late 1700s.

2016 Kubota Winner is George Neal of East Jordan, Michigan!

 

Congratulations George, and a special THANK YOU to all who participated!

 

Your support of the Preservation Association of Beaver Island,

the BIC Center and WVBI 100.1FM, the Voice of Beaver Island,

is greatly appreciated!

 

 

Just a reminder to stop by the Health Center on Thursday. We are offering free EKGs, free blood pressure checks and free blood tests that require just a finger-poke for blood glucose, cholesterol and hemoglobin. (You will probably need to change into an exam gown for the EKG.)

This is a low-key way to do a “systems check” before we head into the holidays – New Year’s resolution time will be here before we know it!

Even if you don’t want any tests, stop by to say hello and pick up information on heart-healthy living for adults and kids. We have door prizes including pocket-size first aid kits, cookbooks and pedometers.

No appointments are necessary – first come, first served. Give us a call at 231-448-2275 if you have any questions. Thank you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JL-I will continue to do Deer Checks and can also be reached at 448-2220.

I have patches to hand out to successful hunters when you get your deer checked. Does and Bucks.

 

I will probably do some deer checks on the 28th and 30th at the boat as well.

 

Help us monitor our herd and make management decisions. Get your deer checked!

 

 

 

 

 

Resale Store – The winter schedule is in effect. We are open Thurs., Fri., and Sat. Each week from noon until 4:00. During those hours we will gladly accept your donation of “gently used, barely used, like new” items. If you have questions about shopping or donating, please call the shop at 448-2534. All proceeds from Island Treasures are used to purchase equipment for BI Fire Department and BI EMS .  Thank you for your support.

I have plenty of time for any extra practice, for anyone who wants it!

To Lucas and all our listeners, knowing who you are and what you want to do is the key to having a purpose. Having a purpose can fill you with energy and lead to better health. If you haven’t found a purpose there’s time, it’s now.

Did you know that the most popular toothbrush color is blue?

 

Word of the day: toggery (TOG-uh-ree) which means 1) clothes; garments; togs 2) a clothing shop. Toggery is likely a shortening of togeman(s) or togman meaning “cloak,” which, in turn, traces to the Latin toga. The -ery suffix is used in formation of nouns denoting goods or products, place or establishment, or occupation. It entered English in the early 1800s.

Hey, Let’s be careful out there. Especially in the school zone.

 

To Lucas and all our listeners, if you are not happy with the results you’ve achieved in life so far, change them. Build the kind of life you will enjoy and put the past behind.

 

On a lighter note, it’s weird how we don’t think about our umbilical cords since we were once so attached to them.

Do you have a fire place, wood stove or campfire pit?

Would you like to buy fire starters? They make great gifts.

 

One bag costs $3.00 and there are 12 starters in a bag.

 

Here’s how to use them. First of all you need to get small sticks and then light the fire starter on fire and put in the pit or wood stove. You don’t need any paper to start your fire! They burn a long time!

 

You can find them at Beaver Island Community School. Call 231-448-2744, ext. 303. Or email bethc@beaverisland.k12.mi.us

Beaver Island passengers may call 231-582-6900 or our toll free number 800-918-3447 for service. Calls will be received between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Same day calls are accepted but it’s best to make advanced reservations.

There have been problems with the 800 number for scheduling the transit. Here is their report.

We have been in the process of tracking down the problem with the 800#. It appears that this number has not been available for use for some time. While we’ve advertised the number for as long as I’ve been at CCT, this is the first time we’ve had reports of it not working. Our IT people are trying to find out why the number isn’t working and hopefully we’ll have it, or another 800 number operational soon. Until this is resolved, riders can use the regular 231-582-6900 number.

 

Additionally, we now have an online reservation tool that can be used. To access that tool, go to the Charlevoix County website and either go to the Transit page or to the Online Services tab and then choose the “Existing Customers Schedule Transit Rides” hot button. This takes you to the webportal where the customer can create their user name and password. After we approve the submission, they’ll be able to request rides online.

 

This is the link to that on-line system.

Phyllis Moore Report

Right now it’s 38°, mostly cloudy, wind is at 3 mph from the NW, humidity is at 96%, pressure is steady at 30.03 inches, visibility is 6.8 miles, sunrise will be at 7:56 am and sunset will be at 5:02 pm. Today: Numerous rain showers in the morning, then scattered rain showers in the afternoon. Highs in the upper 30s. West winds at 10 mph. Tonight: Numerous rain and snow showers. Lows in the lower 30s. Light winds. Gusts up to 20 mph after midnight. MARINE REPORT Northwest wind 5 to 10 knots. Scattered showers. Waves 2 feet or less. Tonight: Northwest wind 5 to 10 knots. Scattered showers. Waves 2 feet or less.

 

On this date of November 25, 1867 – Alfred Nobel patented dynamite.

 

Did you know that sound travels 15 times faster through steel than air? Sound travels faster and farther through steel because the molecules are closer together. The vibrations are then more easily transferred from molecule to molecule. Also, the sound waves don’t have to contend with air currents that keep moving the molecules around. In some old western movies you may have seen a character place his ear to a railroad track to determine if a train was coming, because the vibrations from the train travelled farther through the steel rail than the sound of the engine through the air.

However, the quality of the sound is different travelling through the steel, because the steel molecules do not vibrate the same as air molecules. So some portion of the sound (some wavelengths) are removed or muffled.

So, sound waves travel faster and farther through steel, but the resulting sound doesn’t sound as good.

 

Word of the day: schlockmeister (SHLOK-mahy-ster) which means a person who deals in or sells inferior or worthless goods; junk dealer. Schlockmeister is an Americanism whose first element schlock stems from Yiddish shlak “apoplectic stroke, evil, nuisance, wretch.” The second element comes from Yiddish mayster or German Meister meaning “master craftsman.” It entered English in the mid-1950s.

On this date of November 24, 1903 – Clyde J. Coleman received the patent for an electric self-starter for an automobile.

Did you know that clothes dried outside smell better because of a process called photolysis (sunlight breaks down compounds that cause odor)?

Word of the day: boon (boon) which means 1) something to be thankful for; blessing; benefit. 2) something that is asked; a favor sought. Boon can be traced from Middle English to the Old Norse noun bón “prayer, petition.” The senses gradually developed from “prayer of petition, favor requested” to “answered prayer, granted favor” to “gift, benefit received.”

There have been problems with the 800 number for scheduling the transit. Here is their report.

We have been in the process of tracking down the problem with the 800#. It appears that this number has not been available for use for some time. While we’ve advertised the number for as long as I’ve been at CCT, this is the first time we’ve had reports of it not working. Our IT people are trying to find out why the number isn’t working and hopefully we’ll have it, or another 800 number operational soon. Until this is resolved, riders can use the regular 231-582-6900 number.

 

Additionally, we now have an online reservation tool that can be used. To access that tool, go to the Charlevoix County website and either go to the Transit page or to the Online Services tab and then choose the “Existing Customers Schedule Transit Rides” hot button. This takes you to the webportal where the customer can create their user name and password. After we approve the submission, they’ll be able to request rides online.

On this date of November 22, 1718 – English pirate Edward Teach (a.k.a. “Blackbeard”) was killed during a battle off the coast of North Carolina. British soldiers cornered him aboard his ship and killed him. He was shot and stabbed more than 25 times.

Did you know that the sun has a diameter of 864,000 miles?

Word of the day:equipoise (EE-kwuh-poiz) which means 1) an equal distribution of weight; even balance; equilibrium. 2) a counterpoise. 3) to equal or offset in weight; balance. Equipoise is a shortening of the phrase æquall-poize “equal distribution of weight.” Its first element, equi- derives from the Latin adjective aequus “equal”; poise derives from French pois, poise, peis “weight” and finds its source in the Latin verb pendere meaning “to weigh.” It entered English in the early 1600s.

To Lucas and all our listeners, it’s been said and worth repeating in this week of Thanksgiving, that to get we must give. But, we must put aside the thought of what am I going to get when giving.

 

On a lighter note, how many pieces of pie did the turkey eat on Thanksgiving? None, he was already stuffed,

While we’ve advertised the number for as long as I’ve been at CCT, this is the first time we’ve had reports of it not working. Our IT people are trying to find out why the number isn’t working and hopefully we’ll have it, or another 800 number operational soon. Until this is resolved, riders can use the regular 231-582-6900 number.

 

Additionally, we now have an online reservation tool that can be used. To access that tool, go to the Charlevoix County website and either go to the Transit page or to the Online Services tab and then choose the “Existing Customers Schedule Transit Rides” hot button. This takes you to the webportal where the customer can create their user name and password. After we approve the submission, they’ll be able to request rides online.

 

This is the link to that on-line system.

 

I have not tried the on-line system.

I just tried the online reservation system. It was very intuitive. I’ll demonstrate how to sign up and book a trip at the COA Dinner on November 20. Bring your laptops or tablets if you’d like to follow along with your own profile and trip.

If you are looking for information on all island events, find it on the new WVBI Community Calendar. Just head on over to the WVBI website and click on Calendar on the top menu.

We’ve tried to include everything, but if we’ve missed your event you can easily add it yourself by using the handy “Post Your Event” button in the upper right of the calendar or by sending an email with the details to¬†calendar@wvbi.net. And, we can make it easy for your events to show up in a nice calendar on your website, too, so you only have to post them once. Your website can show only your events or those plus other categories from the calendar that you choose.

Did you know that rain contains vitamin B12?

Word of the day: duende (DWEN-de) which means 1) charm; magnetism. 2) a goblin; demon; spirit. Duende comes via French from the Old Spanish phrase duen de casa, dueño de casa “master of the house,” originally, in the late 1600s, referring to a household deity, fairy, pixie, or imp. By the mid-1900s, it acquired the sense of impassioned, inspired artistry.

Hey, Let’s be careful out there. Especially in the school zone.

 

To Lucas and all our listeners, taking a wanting to know more approach to life, far exceeds an I know all I need to know approach.

Keeping our enthusiasm for life helps us and those around us.

 

On a lighter note, what’s black and white and red all over? A pilgrim covered in cranberry juice!!
