Clydesdales Coming to Fremont
Heroes United is a special event as part of United Way of the Lakeshore’s season of caring and their annual campaign. This year, they are paying special tribute to heroes. For the tribute the Budweiser Clydesdales & Local Veteran Community Groups will participate in the parade.
“Heroes United is a celebration of veterans,” says UWL President & CEO, Christine Robere. “It is also a celebration of United Way. This special event is a thank you to people that have been heroes in serving this community and our veterans who have served this country. There will be two parades. The first will be held November 10th in Downtown Fremont, and the second parade will be held November 11th in downtown Muskegon. Our hope is that everyone will feel welcome to view the parade and honor the parade participants. Following the Muskegon veteran’s parade, we will also hold a concert at Mercy Health arena.”
The Fremont Heroes Tribute Parade will occur Wednesday, November 10th beginning at 4 PM. The parade route will begin on S. Stewart Avenue, turn down Main Street, and end at the Veterans Memorial Park where food trucks, snacks, and refreshments will be available.
“This celebration is a very special event at the mid-point of United Way of the Lakeshore’s annual campaign. As part of our season of caring, we make it a priority to show our community that there are wonderful ways to participate as volunteers and/or as donors. We hope the community will join us in celebrating all our heroes.”
City Manager Jon Schneider:
“The State of Michigan has very strict regulations regarding lead and copper as it relates to drinking water systems. Under Michigan regulations, there are requirements to inventory the different types of pipes in a water system and over several years eliminate certain pipes and components that could contribute to lead being present in the water.
“The City of Newaygo has very good water and meets all state requirements regarding the chemical makeup of the water. However, we are still required to visually verify and inventory the pipes in our water system, which is an expensive process since it requires digging many holes throughout town to expose and verify pipe type.
“We are grateful to the State of Michigan for awarding a grant of $86,423 to offset the cost. The grant was awarded under their Drinking Water Asset Management (DWAM) program.”
The City of Newaygo Police Department (NPD) along with their staff are excited to announce its completion of the Michigan Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission (MLEAC) accreditation process.
The Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police (MACP) and the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association (MSA) have pursued this concept and the development of the MLEAC. The attitudes, training and actions of personnel of Michigan’s law enforcement agencies best reflect compliance with the 108 standards contained in this program. Newaygo Police Department was the thirty-seventh accredited agency, state-wide.

River Hills growth continues; New houses to start at $260K
Newaygo, , October 18th - On this cool crisp mid-October Monday morning about 30 or so folks from a number of entities throughout the county gathered along the back section of the River Hills neighborhood in Newaygo to celebrate the fruition of a groundbreaking (in the most literal sense of the word) effort.
Sable Homes, in cooperation with project consultants Fishbeck, the City of Newaygo, Newaygo County, and the Michigan Land Bank Authority, kicked off phase two of the expanding neighborhood in Newaygo with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The celebration marked the official welcoming of a pilot program designed to increase Michigan’s housing stock and help alleviate the region’s housing crisis.
Nearly 4 years ago N3 reported on their phase one ribbon cutting during a cold December day. At that time Sable Homes had just begun the process of revitalizing the long dormant neighborhood. Today the streets are lined with houses nestled into the wooded surroundings and exuding the vibrancy found in similar mini-communities.
Speakers at today’s ribbon cutting featured those who have been working on the project for the past two years, including John Bitely, president of Sable Homes; Jon Schneider, Newaygo City manager; Emily Doerr of the State Land Bank Authority; and Susan Wenzlick of Fishbeck.
Though often competing with the productive sound of the work being done on the houses surrounding the event, the quartet of speakers delivered on helping to tell the story of this innovative project to those of us gathered for the event.
John Bitely: “When we took over this project in 2017, we had no idea what we were up against in terms of labor and material costs, creating an exorbitant price range for these homes – which was the opposite of what we wanted to do here in Newaygo. “We knew we had to come up with a creative way to make this a viable neighborhood without breaking the bank. And through our conversations with the state Home Builders Association, city and county officials in Newaygo, the Michigan Land Bank Authority, The Right Place and Fishbeck, a Grand Rapids environmental and engineering company, everyone came together to make it happen.”
Susan Wenzlick: “Once Newaygo County’s Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, Newaygo City and Sable Homes had agreed to the project concept, we developed the Act 381 brownfield TIF plan, which authorizes the brownfield authority to offer TIF as an incentive to developers for projects that the authority determines are in the public good, like new housing to help meet local need. “This now allows Sable Homes to be reimbursed over 12 years for site preparation and infrastructure funding gap, plus interest and the cost of developing the brownfield plan.”
Emily Doerr: “This approach had never before been used for housing, but state and local government stakeholders were all on board.We held on to the property from fall 2020 to early 2021. During that time, the property taxes were reset to zero, slightly increasing the amount of tax revenues that could be used to repay Sable Homes for its eligible expenses. We will be reimbursed from tax revenues for participating in the project, and the county will keep some of the tax increment revenues for a county brownfield revolving fund after Sable Homes is reimbursed. It’s a win-win.”
Jon Schneider:“We have a great community here in the city of Newaygo with residents who enjoy living and working here. But for many of our residents, it’s hard to find new housing that’s affordable. We are grateful that John Bitely understood the housing need here and worked with state and local officials to find a way to bring affordable new homes to our area. We hope what we’ve done here will gain some notoriety and help close the housing gap in other areas of the state.”
New homes in River Hills Estate will start at $260,000

College and Career Night Out Celebrates Post-Secondary Opportunities
A record number of colleges, job training programs, military organizations, and community resources were represented at College and Career Night Out on September 30 at Fremont High School. More than 50 organizations were on-hand to help local students explore their post-secondary options.
After shifting to virtual visits and events in 2020, this year’s event drew students and families from across Newaygo County to learn more about post-secondary education, career opportunities, and financial aid. WE CAN! Newaygo County—the local career and college access network—and Fremont Area Community Foundation organized and sponsored the event.
Melissa Miller, Supervisor of Early College and Student Success Services for the Newaygo County Regional Educational Service Agency, said that the event was designed to spark curiosity and connection regarding college and career opportunities for local students.
“With so many factors that can influence a student’s decision to pursue higher education or training after high school, this event continues to serve families in this process by bringing numerous resources and representatives under one roof,” said Miller. “Families are able to make connections, get their questions answered, and hopefully realize there are many resources to support them as they navigate this selection process.”
Attendees enjoyed pizza and were able to attend informational sessions on financial aid, choosing a college, the Promise Zone, and career preparation through apprenticeships.
After informational sessions concluded, a college and career fair in the gym allowed students to speak with representatives from a wide variety of public and private colleges and universities, military branches, trade schools, and career training programs. Partners from Early College Newaygo County, Gerber Foundation, Newaygo County Area Promise Zone, Newaygo County Career-Tech Center, and Fremont Area Community Foundation shared more about the resources their organizations offer to students and families.
Event organizers extend their thanks to their hosts at Fremont High School, the community members and students who volunteered during the event, session presenters, and the local businesses who supported food and beverages, including Bill’s Shop N Save and Walmart.

Re-Scheduled event at Brower Park introduces new trail portion and celebrates already finished mileage
Stanwood, MI: Consumers Energy is hosting a family fun event on Friday, October 8, from 2:30 - 6 pm, at Mecosta County’s Brower Park to celebrate the Consumers Energy Foundation’s recent $200,000 grant and other partnerships bringing Michigan’s Dragon at Hardy Dam (Dragon Trail) to life. The event was originally scheduled for August, but regional storms forced the schedule change. The Dragon Trail, when complete, will be an estimated 47-mile non motorized, multi-use trail forming a loop around the Hardy Pond Reservoir.
“Each step along the journey to complete this epic recreational trail is worthy of celebration,” said Carolyn Bloodworth, secretary/treasurer of the Consumers Energy Foundation. “We’re hoping for a huge public turnout Friday which we promise to make fun for all including dedicated mountain bikers who want to check out excellent riding opportunities the trail already offers and for families looking for fun activities outdoors in beautiful northern Michigan.”
This free event, which is open to the public, will feature food and refreshments, kids’ activities, and more, all complements of Consumers Energy. There will be a brief welcome ceremony at 2:30 pm. Brower Park is located at 23056 Polk Road, in Stanwood.
Plans for the Dragon Trail have been ongoing for more than a decade, and ground was broken on the trail in fall 2019. The project is estimated to cost around $3.7 million in total, and Consumers Energy Foundation has helped to commit to this work by providing a $200,000 grant for trail construction. By the end of 2020, a total of 14.6 miles had been completed, and 2021 construction is well underway. An additional 4.5 miles have been completed so far this year, which another estimated five miles still to come.
“Visitors are already enjoying the new mileage opened up starting at Brower Park,” said fundraiser Jodi Albaitis. “We have a long way to go in fundraising and construction, and it’s critical we keep up the momentum. We’re grateful for partners like Consumers Energy to help us make progress and open up new segments for bikers, hikers, runners, and more.”
Of the 11 total segments planned on the Dragon Trail, completed portions are segments eight through eleven, from Big Bend Township Park to across Hardy Dam. Segments two and four have portions of trail open. 2021 construction starts at the north end of segment four and continues through segments five and six, in Mecosta County around the northeast portion of Hardy Pond. More information about the status of open and upcoming segments can be found at thedragon.us.

More than 19 miles now open for mountain biking, hiking, running, and more
Stanwood, MI: Another 4.5 miles have officially been opened on Michigan’s Dragon at Hardy Dam—the Dragon Trail—in Mecosta County. This brings the total of current miles open to just over 19, with another estimated 5 miles still to come in the 2021 construction season.
The newly opened trail can be found starting at Brower Park, at 23056 Polk Road, in Stanwood. Last year a 1.3-mile loop was completed within the park, and this year an additional mile was added earlier this summer, and another 3.5 miles opened as well. The recently completed portion includes an additional bridge and multiple boardwalk crossings over small tributary creeks of the Muskegon River Watershed.
Once complete, the Dragon Trail will be around 47 miles in length forming a loop around Hardy Pond, in both Mecosta and Newaygo counties. Visitors have been enjoying the open trail in large numbers daily and will be able to continue to do so all year long.
“Though much of Brower County Park will be closing for the season in early October, the newly installed Dragon Trail Parking Area within Brower Park will remain open year-round,” said Mecosta County Parks Superintendent Jeff Abel. There is a fee pipe payment station in the park that visitors can use to park there. Vault toilets will be available during the off-season months; however, riders are encouraged to bring their own water and other needed supplies.
Trail users can find an updated and printable map at thedragon.us, complete with QR codes directing visitors to trailheads and parking.
Funds are still needed to complete construction. Sponsorships of trail components for companies, foundations, individuals, and families are still available. To learn how you can help build or maintain the Dragon, or make a gift, visit https://www.thedragon.us/support-the-dragon trail/donate/.

DHD#10 has received numerous reports from our local healthcare systems that individuals not in need of medical attention, including students, are going to their local hospital Emergency Departments seeking testing for COVID-19.
It is important to note that Emergency Departments are not the appropriate place to go for walk-in COVID-19 testing unless you are experiencing life-threatening symptoms such as difficulty breathing, chest pain and pressure, new confusion, pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips or nail beds, or the inability to wake up or stay awake.
Due to increased testing requirements by schools and employers, testing supplies are becoming increasingly limited. Consider checking with local pharmacies and Meijer locations for testing. You can also find testing sites in Michigan by calling the MDHHS COVID-19 Hotline at 888-535-6136 (press 2) or their online Test Site Finder.
You can also screen for a COVID-19 test by going to Spectrum Health’s website.
Health Dept. inundated with inquiries
From our friends at DHD#10:
September 21, 2021 – District Health Department #10 reports that calls and emails have been flooding in from individuals wanting to receive a COVID-19 booster dose. Recently, the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) voted to recommend the FDA grant Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for a Pfizer Comirnaty booster dose in individuals 65 and older, individuals at high risk for severe COVID-19, and healthcare workers. While the recommendation was given by the FDA, full approval has not yet been given, and it is anticipated that the FDA will make its decision in the coming days. VRBPAC did not vote in favor of approval of a booster dose for the full population.
Additionally, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is scheduled to meet on September 22-23 to discuss recommendations for COVID-19 booster doses in individuals 16 and older.
DHD#10 will inform the public when the final decisions and recommendations are announced and ask that you please refrain from calling to see if you qualify for a booster dose.
“We understand that people are anxious to receive a booster dose for increased protection against COVID-19 and its variants,” stated Kevin Hughes, Health Officer for DHD#10. “We ask for patience as the FDA and ACIP make their final determinations on who should receive a booster dose and of which vaccine type.”
At this time, a COVID-19 booster dose of either Pfizer or Moderna is only recommended for people who have:
Anyone who meets these criteria can schedule a booster dose at www.dhd10.org/schedule or contact us at 888-217-3904 for assistance.
LANSING, MI – The Early Childhood Investment Corporation (ECIC) announces nearly $1 million in grants from the first Child Care Innovation Awards benefiting five Michigan communities — Detroit, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Leelanau, and Newaygo County.
ECIC’s Child Care Innovation Fund is designed to reimagine child care through common-sense financing and business solutions. Earlier this summer, ECIC issued a call for applications from communities seeking to fund unique solutions to Michigan's child care shortage. ECIC received 147 applications, from more that 50 percent of Michigan counties, requesting more than $23 million in support.
“We know accessible, affordable and high quality child care is essential to Michigan’s recovery and future economic vitality,” says Joan Blough, Director of the Child Care Innovation Fund. “And clearly the need to fund new ideas exists. Interest in this program was unprecedented.”
By piloting new business and financing models, the Child Care Innovation Fund will create blueprints for scalable solutions to take advantage of future federal funding opportunities for child care.
The first cohort of Child Care Innovation Fund Awards range from $75,000 to $318,000 per community:
Newaygo County – a coalition led by Newaygo County RESA will pilot a supply-building hub in a “child care desert” that engages economic development entities and employers to support child care business development.
Detroit – a partnership between Development Centers, IFF and Trinity Health, with support from The Cody Rouge Community Action Alliance, will pilot a community-based approach to building the supply of quality child care in a “child care desert,” with a special focus on expanding access to infant-toddler care and to extended hours of care for working families.
Grand Rapids – a group led by Steepletown Neighborhood Services will scale up an early childhood educator registered, paid apprenticeship program, combining academic instruction with on-the-job training, in community with a child care shortage.
Kalamazoo – a partnership between the Kalamazoo Literacy Council, Southwest Michigan Child Care Resource and the YWCA will scale up a neighborhood-based career pathway that creates full-time child care jobs with competitive wages in a community with a child care shortage.
Leelanau – a collaborative effort led by the Leelanau Early Childhood Development Commission, with key partners Leelanau Children’s Center and the Leelanau Peninsula Economic Foundation will scale up a county-based model that supports culturally and economically diverse eligible adults to successfully start and operate profitable home-based child care businesses, which provide infant and toddler and extended hours care for working families.
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with these communities on critically needed solutions that benefit working families, child care business owners and early educators,” says Blough.
Applications for a second round of funding opportunities through the Child Care Innovation Fund are expected to open in the fall of 2021.
