To the editor:
Do you believe in Santa Claus?
Journalism is a pretty good career for a skeptic, which may explain why I’ve been doing journalism in one form or another for nearly my entire adult life. Personally, I’m an agnostic when it comes to Santa.
Have you seen him? Have you seen Santa?
He’s been here in Leelanau, spreading gifts and hope and love. In fact, Santa through his spirit and helpers has been all over:
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem… When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
Organizations wishing to have their public events listed in this calendar can email Amy Hubbell at email@example.com or call The Enterprise, 256-9827, before 5 p.m. Friday.
10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. — Beginner Tai Chi Class (free); Leelanau Township Fire Hall, Northport.
The Leland Township Library will host a holiday open house Friday, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Michigan law requires local governments to inform their citizenry through public notices published in newspapers of record for their communities. These notices provide residents with an easy path for following the work of their elected officials. Public notices for Leelanau County can also be accessed online at Leelanaunews.com.
Karen J. Laskey Died December 11, 2018
CEDAR -- Karen Jean Laskey left this world to be with her Father in Heaven on December 11, 2018 at the age of 77. She was surrounded by her loving husband and family at the time of her death.
LAKE LEELANAU – Leonard Albin Denoyer, 93, of Lake Leelanau, passed away Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018 at Grand Traverse Pavilions.
Leonard was born Sep. 10, 1925 in Lake Leelanau the son of Alfred and Clara (Bussey) Denoyer. On Jan. 20, 1945 at St. Mary’s Church of Lake Leelanau, he married Phyllis (Couturier) Denoyer, who survives.
Jerry was born in St. Paul, MN, April 25, 1941 to Agnes and Earl Bergman. At six weeks of age, the family moved to Kalamazoo, MI. Jerry graduated from Kalamazoo Central High School and then attended Western Michigan University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree.
L. Jean Schmidt of Suttons Bay died Thursday Dec. 6 in Traverse City.
She was 86.
Memorial contributions may be directed to Munchkins’ Mission, P.O. Box 764, Suttons Bay, MI 49682.
Marilyn Wittus of North Port, Fla. died last month in Florida.
She is the mother of former Lake Leelanau resident Leese Wittus.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Reynolds- Jonkhoff Funeral Home in Traverse City for Lois Anne Henry of Glen Arbor who died Dec. 14.
She was 90.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday in West Bend, Wis. for Michael J. Danaher of Northport and Milwaukee who died Dec. 10.
He was 75.
The county’s Solid Waste Council appears no closer to finding a new recycling drop off site to serve Leland and Lake Leelanau but got some good news this week from the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians.
With Christmas approaching and winter outdoor sports stuck with a bare ground venue, snow matters.
“Having snow on the ground helps,” said Tom Bartholomew, who oversees skiing operations at The Homestead near Glen Arbor. “When people see snow, they think about outdoor activities.”
More progress appears to have been made this week toward the revival of Sugar Loaf Resort.
Closed and decaying for the past 18 years, the resort will undergo an environmental assessment early next year at taxpayer expense before demolition and redevelopment begins in the spring. In addition, underground petroleum storage tanks will likely need to be removed from the property.
A group organized just last week has wasted no time in organizing a non-profit group to keep the Bay Theatre alive in Suttons Bay.
The Bay Community Theater was scheduled to file paperwork with the State of Michigan today, which will allow the group to legally takeover the theater Jan. 1.
