Health Resource Fair held in Lewiston
Professionals in health care were on display at Lewiston’s Health Resource Fair on Oct. 12 at the parish hall for St. Francis of Assisi. Most services were offered free of charge, and visitors had the opportunity to learn about massage, flu vaccines, eye care, extended care, health and fitness, physical therapy, Alzheimer’s, medical equipment and organ donation.

Those in attendance could have their hearing, vision or blood pressure tested or enjoy the therapeutic value of a massage. Free raffles took place for two bicycles and two bicycle helmets. Some entities with displays include Up North Prevention, Wal-Mart Vision Center, Wal-Mart Pharmacy, Otsego Memorial Hospital, Michigan State University Extension, Northsport Physical Therapy, Hospice of the Sunrise Shore, Alzheimers’ Association, His Love Family Resources, Tops 1132, Munson Home Health, Montmorency County Commission on Aging and Region 9 Area Agency on Aging.

Commissioners proclaim October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Commissioners in Montmorency County have proclaimed October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. At the regular county board meeting, Oct. 11, Katy Conklin, executive director for Hope Shores Alliance, provided information about the largest domestic and sexual violence service provider in the state.

With 28 staff members, Hope Shores serves Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Montmorency and Presque Isle counties with counseling, advocacy, emergency shelter and survivor programs. The organization operates two thrift stores, and a transitional housing program utilizing 17 units is currently providing homes for more than 40 children.

“The need is great,” Conklin told board members. “We appreciate all your help and donations.”

Hillman Airport runway may need to be shortened due to trees
If owners of property at the south end of the airport in Hillman don’t agree to remove trees obstructing runway airspace, the village council will have to reduce the length of the runway. A survey has revealed numerous trees must be topped or cut down.

“If we don’t get any cooperation, our only option would be to pull back the runway to make sure we have proper clearance,” David Post, village manager, said in a recent interview.

Without cooperation, the runway would have to be shortened from the existing 2,500 feet to 1,730 feet. Post said the reduction in length would not have a significant impact on small aircraft flying into the airport. There are plans to meet with the property owners to discuss the matter.
