Homesick black bear treks 90 miles back to Northern Michigan town after DNR relocation – MLive.com05.31.21

TRAVERSE CITY, MI A black bear that caused mischief in Traverse City for months before it was relocated in April apparently got homesick, the Associated Press reports.

A radio collar indicates that the bear trekked 90 miles back to Grand Traverse County from the Alpena area, according to AP and the Traverse City Record-Eagle.

The bear had raided bird feeders and trash cans, and evaded several capture attempts by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources before he was finally lured by birdseed in April. Wildlife officials gave him a lip tattoo, ear tag and an electronic collar before he was taken to the less populous eastern Lower Peninsula.

The DNR used weekly plane flyovers to track the collar heading back west.

For some reason he likes the Lake Michigan coast, said Steve Griffith, a wildlife biologist for the DNRs Traverse City office.

Sightings of the ear-tagged bear have been reported by residents, but there hasnt been any plundering any birdfeeders or trashcans.

Hes stubborn. But hopefully hes a little bit reformed, Griffith said. Well keep our fingers crossed.

In April, Griffith said the DNR might have to consider euthanasia if the bear showed up in neighborhoods again.

Michigan is home to approximately 12,000 black bears. About 10,000 live in the Upper Peninsula, while 2,000 are in the Lower Peninsula, according to the DNR.

The bears can be attracted to residences by the smell of birdfeed even if the feeder is currently empty grills, trash and pet food, Griffith said.

DNR: Traverse City’s west side bear returns to Grand Traverse County – Traverse City Record Eagle05.31.21

TRAVERSE CITY The bear came back. The very next month.

State wildlife officials in April trapped a black bear notorious for raids on bird feeders and trash cans on Traverse Citys west side. They gave the bruin a lip tattoo, some ear tags, removed a tooth to determine his age, fitted him with a radio collar and carted him in a metal, tube-shaped trap 90-some miles away to nearly Alpena to release him.

Since then, the bear slowly marched his way back to Grand Traverse County. Experts with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources tracked its radio collar during weekly plane fly-overs and the bear is now known to be back in Grand Traverse County.

For some reason he likes the Lake Michigan coast, said Steve Griffith, DNR wildlife biologist from the Traverse City office.

This bruin is the sole male of the species with a radio collar in Michigan; all the others are sows in the states orphaned cubs adoption program.

But Griffith said the male bears return is likely less to do with Michigans sunset coast and more to do with learned habits on familiar territory. Most black bears avoid humans, but this one seems unbothered by proximity to people if it means easy-to-come-by meals, he said.

Hes got a sweet tooth or a lazy bone or I dont know what, Griffith said, laughing.

The bears reputation is to raid trash cans and bird feeders, slurping down every suet block found across Traverse Citys west side. But its being well-behaved during the saunter back to Grand Traverse County, Griffith said.

A couple of sightings of the ear-tagged bear have been phoned in by up north residents, he said, but no problems have been reported regarding birdseed feeders or trash can destruction.

Hes stubborn, Griffith said. But hopefully hes a little bit reformed. Well keep our fingers crossed.

The biologist said theres been talk among state wildlife officials about re-capturing the bear and relocating it as far away as into the Upper Peninsula, should it become a marauder again. But there are wildlife disease factors to consider in that equation because the Straits of Mackinac form a natural barrier between Upper and Lower Michigan for black bears, he said.

Euthanizing the bear would be a last resort, Griffith said, and placement at wildlife preserve would be preferable before that.

Biologically, its an astonishing characteristic of wild animals to be able to navigate themselves back to preferred territory, he said, as this particular bear has done.

Traverse Citys birdseed bandit isnt the only bruin on the move right now.

Griffith said wildlife officials are receiving a lot of calls about bear sightings and run-ins. There likely is some substance to anecdotal reports of more-than-normal bear activity in the region, he said.

A bear was photographed in a suburban front yard in Holiday Hills. Bears were spotted in recent weeks southeast of town near the Brown Bridge Quiet Area. Elk Rapids Police even warned of a bear loafing around an in-town neighborhood in the middle of the day Thursday.

Griffith said birdseed is a major attractant for bears, and they can even smell its past presence in empty bird feeders why feeders should be brought indoors, not just left empty.

And they will definitely smell outdoor grills and, of course, trash and even pet food left outside, he said.

Complicating this time of year are bear sows that have chased off their yearlings, especially the males, which often find themselves being chased away by other bears with established territories, Griffith said.

They are being bounced around, looking for a place to call their own, he said, adding they wont pass up an easy meal if they are hungry enough.

Glen Lile said for the first time in 49 years of living in Holiday Hills he recently came across a black bear while out walking his neighborhood, a daily habit hes kept for about the last seven years.

I walk from one end of Holiday Road to the other end and back again, he said.

Lile said he enjoys watching for wildlife along his exercise route, often snapping photos of deer that wander through the area. He was looking off toward the hillside as he walked along and when he turned his head back straight ahead, there was a small bear standing near a house about 50 feet away from where he stopped dead in his tracks.

It was pretty exciting, lets put it that way, Lile said, adding that he used his mobile phone to snap a couple of photos.

About that time he decided to run up the hill, Lile said. It was very exciting to see and I didnt really feel threatened.

Lile later remembered he had pepper spray with him that he carries in case aggressive dogs chase him, but I never thought of that until the whole thing was over, he said, laughing.

Lile said hes bringing in his birdseed feeders every night to reduce the risk of the bear returning to his part of the neighborhood.

Griffith said DNR wildlife managers have requested an increase in hunting licenses for black bear in the Baldwin bear management unit. That unit includes Benzie, Leelanau, Grand Traverse and parts of Kalkaska counties, as well as the areas stretching south along the Lake Michigan coast through Muskegon County.

Our goal for the near future is to have zero population growth to stabilize the population, Griffith said.

Rachel Leightner, DNR wildlife outreach coordinator, said Michigan is home to approximately 12,000 black bears: 10,000 in the Upper Peninsula and 2,000 in the Lower Peninsula.

Statistics show hunters took 1,726 bears during last years hunt, up from 1,680 killed during the hunt in 2019. Both years 7,080 licenses were awarded through a lottery to hunters and this year only 7,001 licenses will be issued, Leightner said.

The bear license application period remains open through June 1. Drawing results will be available July 6.

Michigans black bears tend to live about 10 years, with males typically roaming a 100-square-mile area and females sticking to smaller, 20-square-mile territories. Bears are omnivorous and prefer large, continuous hardwood and conifer forests as habitat; females can grow to 250 pounds and males as much as 400 pounds.

Beyond food that bears glean from humans, they feed on skunk cabbage, sedges and grasses, while fruits and berries are key to their summertime diet. Bruins will feast on insect larvae such as ants and beetles, and will even eat roadkill and other carrion.

Body art ordinance brought into the 21st century – C&G Newspapers04.22.21

ST. CLAIR SHORES After encountering a taboo on tattoo parlors located within 1,000 feet of a business that sold beer or alcohol for consumption on the premises, City Council has approved a new Body Art Facilities Ordinance to take the place of a Tattoo Establishment Ordinance enacted in the mid-1990s.

Our ordinance was very old. It did not factor in the fact that the state of Michigan, essentially, passed legislation several years ago that really took over, in large part, the regulation of what we all know as tattoo parlors but what the state calls body art facilities, St. Clair Shores City Attorney Robert Ihrie said at the April 5 City Council meeting.

In addition to typical tattoo parlors, however, the city ordinance also covered permanent makeup and microblading establishments. The outdated ordinance came to the attention of City Council because facilities offering permanent makeup were seeking to open within 1,000 feet of restaurants in the downtown area of St. Clair Shores, which sold alcohol.

Microblading is a tattooing technique wherein a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin for eyebrows. Permanent makeup can be used on the eyes, brows and lips.

Shanel Hill, of Body Sculpting Spa, 22811 Greater Mack Ave., has operated a medical spa in St. Clair Shores since 2013. When she wanted to offer permanent makeup, she called the city, the county and the state and was told she didnt need to do anything to add that service. Hill said there must have been some sort of mix-up, however, because when Shanneal Tate, the owner of Precise Micro Beauty, 23000 Greater Mack Ave., sought her certificate of occupancy in downtown St. Clair Shores, thats how I was discovered, Hill said.

I was in shock, because Ive been operating for years with no drunk people coming to get permanent makeup, she added.

The updated Body Art Facilities ordinance, Ihrie said, will allow St. Clair Shores to continue to regulate the businesses while mirroring the state law. Having the ability to charge a violator under a local ordinance instead of the state law, he said, allows the city to keep more of the penalties and fines than if the violation was charged under state law.

In addition, he said the state law is enforced by the county health department, so if, for example, a police officer enters a body art facility and sees someone smoking a violation of state law the officer would have to contact the county health department for enforcement, versus having the ability to issue a citation on the spot for violating the city ordinance.

I drafted it to give us more authority, as opposed to less, he explained.

While the prior ordinance prohibited the location of a tattoo facility within 1,000 feet of any adult amusement device center, establishment where beer or liquor is sold for consumption on the premises, hotels or motels, billiard halls, pawn shops, public lodging house, second hand stores, or other tattoo parlors, the new ordinance removes restrictions on where the businesses can be located.

The new ordinance, however, does establish allowed hours of operation. Ihries initial draft called for hours to be restricted to 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., but Councilman Chris Vitale said he wanted to see the time frame extended.

I understand, and respect and agree with the idea of not having all-night tattoo operations (but) this also includes microblading, which ... I see this as more of a beauty shop issue, and Im sure beauty shops start work before 11 a.m., he said.

He suggested the allowable hours of operation be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. City Council voted 5-0 to approve the new ordinance with those hours of operation, with Councilwoman Candice Rusie and Mayor Kip Walby absent, but excused, from the vote.

Hill is happy the city has updated its ordinance to help other businesses like her own.

Im proud that we were able to make this change because, obviously, it was outdated, she said. Ive been operating as a medical spa, and Id already got my body art licensing ... I thought I was good to go.

I always play by the rules. I love my city. I love my business.

Michigan family mourns death of son they say was pushed to the breaking point by stop in high school sports – MLive.com01.31.21

NORTON SHORES, MI Brennan Dethloff could always count on hockey to help him in his battle with depression and anxiety.

But when the coronavirus pandemic took hockey away, it was too much for Brennan to take.

The 18-year-old senior at Mona Shores High School died Jan. 18. His parents believe his death was linked to his depression.

Brennan was excited to be back on the Sailors varsity hockey team this season. Slipping on that No. 22 sweater alongside his teammates meant everything to him, said his parents, Brian and Rona Dethloff. His hockey team was an extension of family and it carried a far greater impact than any win or loss ever could.

It was his outlet.

But once winter high school contact sports seasons were pushed back not once, but twice, that in turn pushed Brennan close to his breaking point, according to his parents.

You could see it in his face and his body language and his demeanor that it just took it out of him. We both noticed it and did what we could and ultimately that night, something set him off, said Brian Dethloff. You know, unfortunately, he chose to do what he did.

In the days since Brennans death, the Dethloffs have been filled with grief and they search for explanations as to why high school sports and young peoples lives are still being interrupted even though coronavirus numbers are on the decline.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has barred ice hockey, boys and girls basketball, wrestling and competitive cheer from competition. All winter contact sports are only allowed to perform non-contact activity during team practices. Until Jan. 22, winter contact sports were set to resume in full capacity on Feb. 1. However, the MDHHS extended those orders until Feb. 21. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said high school sports could return in a matter of weeks or days.

During a virtual press conference Friday, Michigan High School Athletic Association executive director Mark Uyl said he believes that now is the right time to take the next step and allow those aforementioned four winter sports to begin immediately.

While the Dethloffs say they are proponents of the Let Them Play movement, which is a voice of students, coaches, administrators, parents and fans who want the games to go on, they are trying to be careful as to not point a finger in blame at any specific person or group.

An emotional Rona Dethloff said she wishes Brennan could have realized how loved he was and how much he meant to others, but he carried a burden and pain in his heart.

We want people to know that they shouldnt be ashamed of (depression and anxiety) and that they should talk about it and get help if they need the help, she said.

On the surface, Brennan Dethloff seemed to have everything going for him. School came easy and he carried a 3.8 grade-point average. Sports came more difficult, but he worked for his spot on the Mona Shores hockey team as a gritty defenseman who had his teammates backs. His parents described him as an extrovert, who enjoyed playing disc golf and video games with buddies, as well as hunting, fishing and jet skiing. He would go for beach drives as a means of escape.

Brennans No. 1 quality was the way he looked out for others before himself, according to his parents, but it also came as a detriment. It was difficult to tell how much he was hurting on the inside.

His parents knew it, but others may not have recognized it.

You always think, What could we have done different? or What didnt he have that would have helped? It wasnt anything about that. It was about, he truly had a depression issue and we helped as much as we could, Brian Dethloff said.

But, at the end of the day, everyone on the outside thought he had everything going for him and What did he have to worry about? So, I think thats what the message really is: You dont know what somebodys going through. You dont know everybodys backstory.

Last year, Brennan got a tattoo over his ribcage that read WARR;OR. His mothers stepbrother, Luke Forton, is a tattoo artist and he did the work. The semicolon in place of the letter i in the tattoo was the focal point, a symbol of solidarity designed to fight the stigma around suicide, depression and mental-health issues.

As Rona Dethloff stated, a period ends a sentence, while a semicolon means youre not done you continue on, and your story is not over.

Brian Dethloff said his son was a warrior, and that the tattoo was a constant reminder of that when Brennan looked in the mirror at himself.

An important thing for me, and I said it a while back, we never wanted his depression or his anxiety to define who he was, you know. He was so much more than that, Rona Dethloff said as tears filled her eyes and she became choked up. " But it was a part of him and, you know, we werent ashamed of it.

Its nothing to be ashamed of theres so many kids struggling right now and its not their fault, she continued, emphasizing that point through inflection. You know, they dont ask for it they didnt ask for anything thats happened this last year and theres so many people who will listen and who will do so much for them, but they just have to they have to reach out and its hard its hard to tell people that youre struggling and that things arent as perfect as they might seem and that you want everybody to believe that they are. So I think it was easier for him to kind of pretend things were OK you know, help everybody else and pretend he was fine.

Carter Dethloff is not pretending everything is fine. He looked up to his older brother. Even though they were opposites in many ways, there was a mutual admiration and respect. They loved each other.

Carter, 16, is a tall, athletically gifted goaltender, who played Triple-A hockey for the last four years. He opted to join the Mona Shores team this season so that he could play hockey with Brennan for his senior year. He will not get that chance now, regardless of when or if the puck drops on the Sailors season.

One week after his brothers passing, Carter Dethloff tweeted that he was going to honor his brother this season by wearing No. 22 and his brothers nameplate.

It will mean the world to me its playing for something, someone, more than just playing the game, Carter said. He was someone I could trust as a player and someone that you could come to and just trust.

Carter also had some strong words in the tweet directed at the decision-makers, calling into question the science being used and hopping on board the Let Them Play movement.

Let Them Play is hosting a rally at noon today at the State Capitol. The organization is urging the state to reconsider and re-open all winter sports.

Brian Dethloff is confounded by what he sees as a lack of transparency when it comes to the decision making behind suspending high school sports and he said some groups do not understand the ramifications and mental-health impact that those interruptions are having.

You can call any one of your local health departments, mental health departments, Health West or wherever youre at, and theyll tell you the stats. Theyre there and its unbelievable the difference its been over the last year and actually the last six months, the amount of cases of depression and suicide. Where are those numbers? They dont show em, he said.

We want (Brennans) story to help shine a light on what is actually going on. What he needed was what all these kids needed -- a little bit back to normalcy and to get his life back.

The Dethloffs have been moved by the outpouring of support from the community, family and friends.

More than 1,000 people attended Brennans visitation, while 340 showed up for his funeral and 150 more watched live online.

From the Mona Shores hockey team posting on Facebook a plea for people to place a hockey stick on their porches in honor of Brennan, to the Sailors football team wearing helmet decals remembering Brennan during their state championship game last Friday at Ford Field, to dozens of hockey players from nearby schools showing support outside the church, plenty of love was shown for Brennan.

He always looked out for others, but now it was time for an entire community to wrap its collective arms around Brennans loved ones.

Brian Dethloff knows his family has a difficult road ahead, but he takes some solace in the fact that Brennan will continue to watch over them.

Friday, Carter looked out the window as his father spoke about his brother and saw a cardinal in the backyard.

(Brennan is) listening, Rona Dethloff told Carter with a reassuring tone.

It wasnt the first indicator that Brennan is still with them in spirit, according to Brian Dethloff.

Rona was down in the hot tub down below our deck a couple nights ago, or last week. She was down there by herself, the lights off, fire was on, talking to Brennan, Brian Dethloff said. When she got out we have lights that line underneath the deck and they werent on and as she was leaving one light just flashed. Not all of them, she didnt turn them on one flashed and that was it. Just saying, Im here with you, I heard you.

In lieu of flowers, the Brennan Dethloff Memorial Scholarship Fund has been set up at ChoiceOne Bank, 1030 W. Norton Ave., Muskegon, MI 49441.

Anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, which is a 24/7 service.

Illinois CEO, tattoo artist among those arrested at US Capitol riot – Fox 5901.09.21

by: Mike Lowe and Nexstar Media Wire

WASHINGTON (WGN) Two men from the Chicago suburbs were among those arrested amidst the chaos at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday.

Brad Rukstales, CEO of tech company Cogensia, was one of the people arrested by police after entering the Capitol building.

No one answered the door at Rukstales home on Thursday. Several neighbors declined to speak on camera, but one told WGN News Rukstales had a Trump campaign sign in his yard recently.

Campaign finance records shows Rukstales made several donations to Trumps campaign.

Rukstales holds an MBA from the University of Michigan and is an expert in data-driven marketing strategies, according to Congensias web site. His bio was removed from the site Thursday afternoon.

Brad Rukstales, as an employee of Cogensia, was acting as an individual during his arrest, nothing related to Cogensia. Were currently taking the situation seriously, and were working with our attorneys and were investigating it, and hes currently on an indefinite leave of absence from the company, a Cogensia spokesperson said.

Another suburban Chicago man was arrested in the aftermath of the storming the Capitol.

Police said 48-year-old tattoo artist David Fitzgerald, from Roselle, was also arrested. He posted on his Facebook last night that he was under arrest and to tell my wife.

Fitzgerald has been charged with unlawful entry and breaking curfew at the Capitol.

Other Chicago area residents who took part in the chaos are suffering the consequences.

No charges have been filed yet against Chicago real estate agent Libby Andrews, who posted a selfie saying stormed the Capitol. On Thursday, her employer, At-Properties, fired her.

The FBI is now asking the public for tips, information and videos that will help them identify people involved in the insurrection at the Capitol.

On Thursday night, Brad Rukstales apologized and issued the following statement.

In a moment of extremely poor judgment following the Jan. 6 rally in Washington, I followed hundreds of others through an open set of doors to the Capitol building to see what was taking place inside. I was arrested for the first time in my life and charged with unlawful entry.

My decision to enter the Capitol was wrong, and I am deeply regretful to have done so. Without qualification and as a peaceful and law-abiding citizen, I condemn the violence and destruction that took place in Washington.

I offer my sincere apologies to the men and women of law enforcement for my indiscretion, and I deeply regret that my actions have brought embarrassment to my family, colleagues, friends and fellow countrymen.

It was the single worst personal decision of my life; I have no excuse for my actions and wish that I could take them back.
