Now, 37 years later, he’s up to 15 machines, 17 people and in dire need of additional space to store things and add to his shipping and receiving capabilities. Fortunately for the Village of Baroda and for Schaller and his sons Adam and Nevin, who are both in the business with him, everyone concurs that the 8,000 square foot addition planned by Lakeshore Die Cast, Inc. is the right thing to do, and a great move for the continuing growth pattern the village is seeing on many fronts these days. Village trustees unanimously approved a 12-year, 50-percent tax abatement on the real property involved in the expansion project which is expected to lead to another 1 to 2 jobs in the next couple of years for the zinc and aluminum die caster located at 8829 Stevensville-Baroda Road in the village. The $260,000 project was presented on the Schaller’s behalf by Joe Sobieralski, Executive Director of the Southwestern Michigan Economic Growth Alliance based in Niles. Schaller is President of Lakeshore Die Cast, Inc. which manufactures aluminum and zinc die castings for a widely diversified clientele of more than 70 different customers in various industries from hardware to automotive, from construction trades equipment to the U.S. military. In fact, Schaller says they produce a number of proprietary products for the U.S. Air Force, Navy and the Marine Corps. Lakeshore Die Cast is a “short run” specialist crafting parts in runs of anywhere from 250 to 500,000 pieces per project. Schaller is proud that they work with a lot of family- run businesses where they have long-term relationships including businesses where he started doing work for men whose sons are now running the business. Lakeshore also prides itself on the broad array of customers, saying a lot of little pieces make up a nice size pie. After the meeting at the Baroda Village Hall, Schaller said, “Baroda is a great example of what a small town can do.” He noted that when 45-percent of the die casters in America went out of business in recent years, “Those who stuck it out have all done well.” He says that American manufacturers are producing almost more die casting work than the industry can handle, and that means he and his sons are very fortunate to have survived and will, “Keep doing what we’re doing,” well into the future. Work on the expansion is expected to being almost immediately.<br /> <br /> Sharon Peden of St. Joseph grew up on a farm in a family of ten. They needed to live on a farm in order to provide the food to sustain family members. She vividly recalls her mother’s days as an avid garage-saler. When she, herself, was little, she loved it. As a teen, she hated it. Now, as a retiree from the world of education she is back to not only loving it, she readily answers to any of several monikers from “trash-picker” to “dumpster-diver.” Now, however, she has turned her hobby into a business. Peden quietly opened up her new Share In Joys Consignment Boutique at 2250 W. John Beers Road in Stevensville over a recent weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the turnout and the reception she enjoyed by simply opening her doors. Peden retired from education three years ago and has been substitute teaching in the Muskegon area ever since. She and her husband moved to St. Joseph seven years ago, and he still commutes daily to his job as Superintendent of the Mona Shores School District in Muskegon. That will end when the year does, however, as he, too, is retiring from education at that time. Because they had a three-bedroom home filled with stuff to unload, Sharon decided it was a great time to rekindle her passion for taking old things and bringing them back to life again. Her hobby of collecting castaways and making them useful again is at the core of her new business wherein she offers upscale resale, refurbished furniture, collectibles and consignments. She accepts vintage, new, modern and antique furniture, household items, jewelry and the like, but the only clothing she will entertain is truly vintage wear. You will find Share In Joys Consignment Boutique open every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday in the house from 10am until 5pm. She is closed on Sundays and Mondays, and Thursdays are her best search days for garage and estate sales so she will not be open on Thursdays, either. You can reach her by phone at 616- 730-1070 or by email at shareinjoys@yahoo.com. Look for a Grand Opening celebration in early December.<br /> <br /> They have promised big things for Benton Harbor since taking on the task of maintaining the community’s parks, and now the Benton Harbor Parks Conservancy hopes to see you at City Center for their inaugural Community-Wide Holiday Lights Celebration. Stephannie Harvey- Vandenberg is President of the Benton Harbor Parks Conservancy. She says, “In the spirit of this holiday season, we are proud at how our local downtown businesses, public library and organizations have come together to begin a new tradition for the City of Benton Harbor.” She adds, “Our goal is to begin to renew and strengthen our local, neighboring and regional communities and their families.” The first-ever Benton Harbor Holiday Lights Celebration is slated to begin at 4:30pm on Friday, November 21st, at the Benton Harbor Public Library and will be capped off with the official lighting of the city Christmas tree at 6:00pm in the Dwight P. Mitchell City Center Park. Thanks to a generous partnership with the professional team of a Kalamazoo-based holiday decor company, a stunning display of holiday lighting will illuminate the entire downtown area. Christmas Decor by Naylor Landscape of Kalamazoo is in charge of the technical aspect of the showcase. To launch the festivities, live performances from local organizations will be paired with free hot chocolate, hot apple cider and donated Cinnamon-Stix from Pizza Hut. Additionally, a special message from the City’s Mayor James Hightower will be delivered. At the center of the attractions will be an 18 to 24 foot Christmas tree with a star, and Christmas lights will be strung along Main Street, extending all the way from City Center to the bridge over the St. Joseph River. The Benton Harbor Arts District will also be extensively lit throughout the holiday season. All light displays are designed to remain in place through the second week of January. Vendor opportunities during the celebration are available to interested parties, who can reach the division of Parks & Recreation Services at (269) 927-8420.<br /> <br /> Vandenberg says that the Benton Harbor Public Library will host Christmas Story readings by local celebrities from 4:30pm to 5:45pm, and the lighting ceremony is slated to run from 6pm to 6:45pm at the Dwight P. Mitchell City Center Park. The public is invited and encouraged to join in the festivities with family and friends on Friday, November 21st.<br /> <br /> That’s it for this week, kids.
