Looking back in Benzie County: Beulah village president retires amid Sunday movie dispute

The latest development in the village council controversy came this morning when the president, W.E. Daines, filed his resignation with the clerk to take immediate effect. Last Monday being a regular meeting night and no quorum being present, Mr. Daines was about ready to call upon the governor of the state asking for the removal of the continuing absent members. When this became known one of the members, who has several tardy marks, interviewed the president and faithfully promised he would attend any meeting called thereafter, and seeing that a majority of the members might attend, a meeting was arranged for Friday evening. It began to look as though the final curtain had been drawn on the council “movie” dispute. The climax to the present situation probably came Wednesday night when one of the council members, who was a staunch supporter of the resigning president, was stopped by the traffic cop for speeding and told to appear before Justice Rose the following morning. When a warrant was requested by the justice, Crawford the traffic cop sought to obtain one from the prosecutor (the same Mr. Daines) but was not successful and then he too, Crawford the cop, handed in his resignation and the charge was dropped. Just what the outcome will be is rather difficult to state at this time, but it is understood that a meeting will be held Friday night. The resigning president when called upon for a statement gave the following reason for his action: “I wish to announce that I have tendered my resignation as village president to the village clerk on the 10th day of August, to take immediate effect. My reason for this action is as follows; that there has been no meeting of the common council since the first Monday in June. The law requires the council to meet regularly at least once in each month. Two regular meetings and one special meeting have been passed up on account of the deadlock in the council on the “Sunday movie question”, Paul, Harris, and Barker being absent each time. Important business is pending and the village is suffering because this business is not transacted, and I believe that my resignation as village president will have the effect to harmonize the conflicting elements on the council and will be for the best interest of the village at large.”

Is This the Best Ice Cream Shop in Michigan?

Once again, a Michigan creamery has been ranked among the best in America. But what do you think, are there even better spots for ice cream in the Mitten State?. Don't get me wrong - I love Moomers Ice Cream in Traverse City! We actually got a multiple-tier ice cream cake from Moomers for our wedding! Highly recommend! Especially because prior to the wedding, we got to head out to their sprawling farm and creamery and try a TON of different flavors - yum!
