Create Arts Studio closing Feb. 1; Final exhibit is tonight
Create Create: Community Arts Studio, a nonprofit arts and social service organization, this week announced that on February 1st the studio will be closing. A statement from the board of directors said: "We are extremely honored to have served the community these past 5 years, and the decision to close was certainly not an easy one."
The statement noted that the studio "has offered dynamic and innovative programming to the community. Create has been led by a group of dedicated volunteers and a tireless board who invested their time, energy and hearts into the studio."
Tonight, Thursday, the studio will be hosting their final Gallery: 151 Winter Art Show from 5-7 p.m. with an Artists Reception & Awards Ceremony at 5:30. On exhibit will be works of art by the Artist in Residence Program, Art Lab, Sketch Club and K-5 After School Program. The studio invites everyone who has been a part of Create to join them for the show to celebrate together.
"Thank you to our past board members and volunteers for your ongoing support, to the organizations who partnered with us and strengthened our mission, to our generous donors, and the talented artists who all contributed to the success of the studio," the board statement said. "The most important part of the studio was the children who filled the space with their love and creativity and taught us the importance of freeing your imagination and making time to dream."
Create: Community Arts Studio is located at 151 Ray St. in downtown Boyne City.

Celebrate all that is chocolate at Chocolate Covered Boyne
Chocolate Boyne There are many reasons to spend the day in Boyne City, but nothing as sweet as chocolate indulgences throughout downtown. Chocolate Covered Boyne is your chance to experience chocolate treats and good deals at participating businesses on February 14 & 15 during regular store hours, in celebration of Valentine's Day. This event is a great way to chase away the winter blues and indulge in delectable creations, all conveniently located in downtown Boyne City.
The event culminates in a CHOCOLATE DESSERT CONTEST from 11 a.m to 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 15, at the Boyne City High School Hospitality Program classroom in the downtown Education Center building across the street from the library. Enter through the door on Main Street. This "tasty" competition, hosted by last year's winner, the Hospitality Class, is open to the public. Be a part of the action as our guest judges sample desserts prepared by local restaurants.  Dessert tasting will be free and the Hospitality students will have lunches available for purchase. There will be both a judges award and people's choice award, and the winners take home a trophy and chocolate bragging rights.

Friends and family raise funds for Kelsie and Joe IVF effort
Baby footprints Friends and relatives of Kelsie King-Duff and her husband Joe have organized a GoFundMe page and a fund-raising event to help the couple pursue in-vitro fertilization with donor eggs as a way to have a family. The fund-raiser will be a fun afternoon of playing euchre from 2-6 p.m. Saturday, January 25th at the Boyne City Eagles Hall at 106 River St.
Joe and Kelsie did not want to ask friends and family for money, but we all know what great people they are and how they are always giving back. Both serve their communities everyday - Joe is a Michigan State Police Trooper at the Gaylord post and Kelsie is the executive director for Boyne City's downtown organization. 
Here is their story from the GoFundMe page: Joe Duff and Kelsie King-Duff were so excited to welcome their first child last year. Up until their 18-week appointment, everything was going great. They found out they were having a boy, but also that there were major concerns with brain development. On June 25, 2019, their sweet baby boy, Jack Michael Duff, was stillborn at 23 weeks. It was determined Jack had L1 Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. After months of testing, Kelsie and Joe learned that Kelsie is a carrier for this disorder. Since it is so rare, it is not tested for in any genetic screenings so this could not have been known prior to pregnancy. Because Kelsie is a carrier, it is likely this disorder would be passed down with each pregnancy. 
They are now working with The Fertility Center in Grand Rapids, which has doctors who specialize in in-vitro related to genetic disorders. Kelsie's sister Kirsti King, who has tested negative for the disorder, has generously offered to be an egg donor for Joe and Kelsie. Although they are thrilled, this process is very costly. Costs total $20,374.30 even with insurance kicking in about $6,500.
> Please email Donna Duff,  soldierlover91@yahoo.com, to RSVP  for the Saturday fund-raiser event at the Eagles Hall. 
North Central Michigan College named finalist for national award as a result of  "win-win partnership" with Precision Edge
NCMC North Central Michigan College has been named a finalist for an American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) award in the category of "Outstanding College/Corporate Partnership." AACC has selected North Central as a finalist based on the college's long-standing partnership with Precision Edge Surgical Products.
In 2014, North Central launched a mobile digital fabrication lab, the "Fab Lab," to increase the level of workforce training available to employees engaged in producing high-end medical cutting tools at regional Precision Edge Surgical Products locations. North Central and Precision Edge quickly involved the Northern Lakes Economic Alliance and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation in a unique partnership that leveraged state support for the project once hiring targets at Precision Edge were achieved. North Central bore costs to develop the program and its curriculum and worked closely with all partners to ensure curricula met industry needs. 
This project has since spawned additional manufacturing and grant collaborations between North Central and the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, among others. 
The winner will be announced at the 2020 AACC annual convention, held March 28-30 in National Harbor, Maryland. Full press release.

The program, titled "Conspiracies: What 'They' Don't Want You to Know," features a filmed interview with Ross Hemsworth, a well-known radio personality and speaker at conferences addressing conspiracies and conspiracy theories. "I think those people with exploring minds are the ones interested in conspiracy theories," Hemsworth says during the episode. "For me, when I meet people who are into this subject area, they are exploring everything. They are inquiring minds, and they just want to know the truth that's out there." During the episode, Lifetree participants will be given an opportunity to share their opinions of commonly reported conspiracy theories including the JFK assassination, UFO landings, and genetically engineered viruses.
