Word of the day: animadversion (an-uh-mad-VUR-zhuh n) which means an unfavorable or censorious comment. Animadversion can be traced to the Latin animadvertere “to heed, censure” with the root animus meaning “mind, spirit, courage, passion, wrath.” It entered English in the mid-1500s.

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

 

To Lucas and all our listeners, Dr Charles Mayo wrote, “worry affects the circulation-the heart, the glands, the whole nervous system. I have never known a man who died from overwork, but many who died from doubt.” So stop worrying and get working.

 

On a lighter note, what did the shy pebble wish? Just that she be a little bolder!

Current Events Update for July 13, 2016

Posted Posted in News Update

WVBI Community CalendarToday is Wednesday July 13th, 2016. I’m Greg Doig with today’s WVBI Community Calendar.

Global news from FSN

NEWS

Lots going on, especially at CMU Biological Station.

Dave Schuberg stopped by for some updates. Let’s take a listen.

Audio

Peaine Twp mtg wed july 13th 7pm at Township hall.

Here’s an update on the EMS and air ambulance situation on the island.  There is a meeting tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 pm at Peaine Township Hall to discuss the future of EMS on the island.  Meantime, it appears that as of next Tuesday, barring any change, there will be no paramedic on the island and thus no way to initiate an air ambulance flight from the island without getting a paramedic here first—essentially calling an off island provider to do the transport rather than using Island Airways.  The result is that there could be a substantial delay in getting the patient to the hospital. We’ll have a reporter at the meeting and expect to be able to provide more information on Friday.

Note from the Chamber of Commerce

UNDER THE RADAR MICHIGAN COMING TO BEAVER ISLAND

 

Looking to arrive on the island Tuesday afternoon, July 19th and depart Thursday late morning the 21s

“Under the Radar” is an Emmy Award winning PBS television program that features the cool people, places and things that make Michigan a great place to be. It’s fun … fast paced … and we talk to real people, and tell real success stories. We pack a ton of positive information and energy into every program.

 

Everyone is invited, all ages to attend the July Anime/Manga drawing workshop held at BIDL on July 19 at 2 p.m. Dan McDonough will be sharing his expertise in the art form of Manga and Anime and participants will get to try their hands at it too. Materials and instruction is free!

Word of the day: tweedle (TWEED-l) which means 1) to lure by or as by music 2) to produce high-pitched, modulated sounds, as a singer, bird, or musical instrument. Tweedle is imitative in origin, though it may also be influenced by the verb wheedle. It entered English in the late 1600s.

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

 

To Lucas and all our listeners, we sometimes face a decision that can appear to be insurmountable. Carlyle, the Scottish Philosopher once said, “The block of granite which was an obstacle in the pathway to the weak becomes a stepping stone in the pathway of the strong.” So solve the problem and move on.

 

On a lighter note, why did the banker quit his job? He lost interest!

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

 

To Lucas and all our listeners, we can find security in the things we are called to do, by learning and doing things, as well as we can possibly do them. We may not achieve this ideal, but that security lies within each of us. Like most things worth having in life, it is earned.

 

On a lighter note, What’s the difference between a well dress person on a bicycle and a sloppy dressed person on a tricycle? A tire.

Current Events Update for July 5, 2016

Posted Posted in News Update

Today is Tuesday July 5th, 2016. I’m Greg Doig with today’s WVBI Community Calendar.

Global news from FSN

NEWS

Yesterday was a fantastic celebration of our Nation’s Independence Day, right here on Beaver Island. From all the great parade floats and participants, to the thousands that lined the streets of the route, it was a great family and friend time here on the best place in the country to celebrate the 4th of July.

WVBI had some of its family in the parade and had the honor of bringing BIROBOT and the team, to the event. All the floats and vehicles were outstanding. I may be a little bit biased on this, but BIROBOT was one of the big hits of the parade. It dazzled the crowd with its speed and maneuvers and made all the kids that had candy thrown their way delighted. The team members had a fun time and loved seeing the great response to them and their robot from all in attendance. Don’t forget to visit their Facebook page BIROBOT for updates and the website birobot.org for some videos and pictures over the next few days.

Again, the fireworks last night were a blast, pun intended and it also is one of the great events here on Beaver Island that amazes and delights those that watch, each and every time.

Thanks also to Denis Winslow and Phil Becker for their live broadcast out front of the BICC and the great production of the reading of the Declaration of Independence by all that read and to Kevin Boyle for producing that splendid show. Thanks to all at WVBI and all here on Beaver Island that support WVBI, the parade and make the 4th of July what it is, Great!

 

Get Your tickets for the soon to be world famous Beaver Island Music Festival. It’s already famous but moving up, go to the website bimf.net and mark your calendars for July 14,15, and 16th

After almost 30 years of service to us, Joe has retired. This is something he’s wanted to do for the last two years, but kept postponing because he put the needs of the island ahead of his own. Words can’t describe his dedication, the countless people he’s helped and the service he’s given us. Thank you, Joe. Your skill and dedication will be sorely missed.

Condolences

Joyce Bartels passed away peacefully days short of her 91st birthday. Born in Flint, Michigan to Thomas and Edna Ackerman and raised in Grand Blanc, Michigan. She was valedictorian of Grand Blanc High School class of 1943 and studied civil engineering at Purdue University.

 

She was preceded in death by her husband; Harold, her brother; William, and two half-sisters; Margaret (Peggy) Ashbury and Ruthie Wadsworth. Joyce was the mother of Elizabeth, Karl (Sandra), and Amy (Richard); grandmother of Galen, Karen, and Melissa; and great grandmother Connor, Payton, and Emma.

 

She was a member and/or officer of numerous local and national civic, historical, conservation, and environmental organizations and a tireless volunteer. Memorial services will be held at a later date at Haslett Community Church and on her beloved Beaver Island. The family is being served by Gorsline Runciman, Lansing Chapel. On-line condolences may be shared at www.grlansing.com .

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

 

To Lucas and all our listeners, a quote from Ben Franklin seems appropriate today, “Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

On a lighter note, What kind of tea did American Colonists thirst for? Liberty!

Traffic

Still no delays to report.

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

 

To Lucas and all our listeners, it is often the common and everyday things that we miss and some are so simple, yet for some, too hard to follow. One that sticks out often is the Golden Rule. So today and every day that follows, let’s all try and stick to it.

On a lighter note to end the week, I once heard that a cow with 3 legs is better known as lean beef.
