It's been gorgeous up here the last few days - took the grandson out for a 4 wheeler cruise this morning. Still amazed he's over 3 now, parents make sure you treasure them while you can the time flies by.

I get what you're saying but I'm perfectly okay with not having any grandkids for a good 10-12 years.

To be fair, Mio and male performance issues go hand in hand. Heh.

Annual weekend sale to provide relief to areas in need

Don't miss the chicken dinner.....

MIO –– The 51st annual Northern Michigan Relief Sale is expected to bring thousands to Oscoda County Aug. 4-5 in an effort to provide assistance to needy areas around the globe.

The two-day event is overseen by the Mennonite Central Committee, which disperses the funds raised to ongoing relief projects such as assistance to hurricane survivors in Haiti, providing fresh resources to areas without clean drinking water, and to refugees from Syria, Ukraine, Turkey and Iraq, according to relief sale Director Carl Dube.

“One of the things that MCC has done is worked at finding ways that safe water can be provided for a village or town somewhere that otherwise wouldn’t have that,” Dube said. “So many diseases are waterborne that can devastate a community in a short amount of time. In Michigan with all the rain it almost seems like water is a nuisance, but it’s so precious in their areas.”

The event will begin Friday, Aug. 4, with a garage sale, used book sale, baked goods sale and silent auction. There will be food for sale throughout the day including several hundred gallons of soup, according to Dube. Later on in the day there will be a concert performed by two bands, The Gospelmen and the Foresters, who perform southern and traditional gospel music.

A relief sale run will be held Friday with registration beginning at 6 p.m. The run is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Dube said there will be categories for male and female runners with breakdowns of different ages and runners of all ages and ability are welcome. Medals will be awarded to finishers in each category following the race.

“We understand from counting we usually get 1,000-1,500 people to attend Friday throughout the day, and on Saturday (we get) somewhere in the range of 2,000,” he said. “Last year, our total amount raised before expenses was $178,000, which was just amazing. Out of that number we sent $145,000 to MCC. So we sent that away for them to do their relief and development work and that type of thing.”

Live in Mio and your dreams can come true - you can garden with a cop!!

Family events to be held at Oscoda Community Garden

LIST OF EVENTS --
July 26 –– Organic Gardening

Aug. 2 –– Gardening With a Cop

Aug. 9 –– Miracles in a Single Grain of Wheat

Aug. 23 –– Parents Share Their Wisdom

Aug. 31 –– Make Your Own Herb Butter

MIO –– Organizers at the Oscoda Community Garden will host a series of summer events throughout July and August to promote healthy lifestyles for residents.

The events will be hosted for the first time, and coordinator Deb Nurse and assistant coordinator Kris Elliott are overseeing the project.

“Working with the children we do, we’re focused on getting them to participate in the community and getting them more involved,” Elliott said. “We’ve got some great people in our community and they have their wisdom, and it would be great to share that with them.”

In one event in particular, Gardening With a Cop, participants will get to spend a few hours learning with a police officer.

“Police officers can be scary to children,” Elliott said. “So maybe after working with an officer, the children will feel safer and realize (cops are) good people and they’ll be willing to try new things overall.”

The workshops will also include information and hands-on experience with organic and healthy gardening options, building a worm composter, learning about wheat’s contribution to natural nutrition, making natural bug spray and homemade butter and more.

I'll suggest it. The homemade butter is going to be lights out - raw milk - none of this sissy pasteurized stuff.

Grayling is a madhouse, 15 minutes to get through the light at M72.

I've got peach cobbler, snickerdoodles and am about to fire the grill up for Ribeyes.

Anyone coming to go bridge running about midnight?

Meanwhile - between Mio and Grayling....

At Camp Grayling, six nations train for war at Northern Strike exercise

The units are spread across the 147,000-acre Camp Grayling complex, which includes land in Crawford, Kalkaska and Otsego counties. It's the largest National Guard training facility in the country.

Flights are launching from Alpena and Selfridge Air National Guard Base near Detroit for the exercise, and one mock helicopter rescue mission takes place as far away as the western Upper Peninsula.

On Friday, Aug. 4, much of the activity was happening on hilly terrain northeast of Grayling, where ground troops and air units practiced synchronizing mortar fire on the largest joint artillery range east of the Mississippi River.

A Jimmy Buffett tribute band? The boomers will be lined up for miles trying to get in. Might be a good place to set up a table to sell knock-off Sperry boat shoes.

Badges for a Cause 5K to return to Mio for 11th year

MIO –– The 11th annual Badges for a Cause 5K race and walk will take place Aug. 12 to raise funds and awareness for cancer research, education and services.

Sheriff Kevin Grace said he expects the same number of attendees this year as compared to previous years.

“Usually we get anywhere from 75-100, and generally all ages from young to old and in-between (participate),” he said. “So it’s more of a fun race than it is a competitive one.”

Grace said he believes the people who attend usually have something in common.

“I think a lot of the people either have somebody that’s involved in some kind of cancer or surviving or have somebody that’s been taken as a result of cancer, so I think that’s kind of a little healing process for some and it’s kind of a feel-good run.”

Grace recommended pre-registering for the event in order to guarantee receiving the correct size of T-shirt, although he said the organizers usually buy extra as well. It costs $20 to register by Aug. 5 or $25 to register the day of.
