Greenville remembers
legacy of Fred Meijer

4

Owner of Midwest
chain died on
Friday at age 91
GREENVILLE, Mich. (AP) -
Art by famous sculptor Marshall
Fredericks sits in the middle of
Greenville, bike paths connect
neighborhoods and a local hos-
pital has expanded - all due to
the generosity of the small town's
favorite son, Fred Meijer.
The retail pioneer grew up in
the western Michigan commu-
nity and never forgot it. He died
Friday at age 91, decades after his
father opened a store here that
eventually grew into a Midwest
chain ofnearly 200.
Meijer "loved Greenville and
Greenville loved him," Mayor

Kenneth Snow told The Daily
News.
There will be an eight-hour
visitation tomorrow in Grand
Rapids at the gardens and sculp-
ture park that bears Meijer's
name. He died after suffering a
stroke.
Greenville, 35 miles northeast
of Meijer Inc. headquarters in
Grand Rapids, is where Meijer's
father got into the grocery busi-
ness in 1934. The city's welcome
sign says "Birthplace of Meijer."
Fred Meijer was the lead donor
of an expansion at Spectrum
Health's United Memorial Cam-
pus, which added two surgery
suites and 24 patient rooms and
is named for his parents. Over a
10-year period, he made many
donations to the Fighting Falcon
Military Museum.

"When he heard he could do
something for Greenville, he cer-
tainly would do it," high school
classmate Virginia Wood, 91,
said.
Former Mayor Lloyd Walker, a
longtime friend, recalled accom-
panying Meijer on a personal trip
near Saginaw and stopping to get
an ice cream at a new Meijer store.
Meijer handed out coupons for
free cones and introduced himself
to anyone who wanted to chat.
"If you Googled him, you'd
know he was worth $5.2 billion,"
Walker told The Grand Rapids
Press. "But you'd never know it
from meeting him."
He said he relied on Meijer to
personally ease the concerns of
farmers when Meijer and Green-
ville wanted to create recreation
trails in the area.

Series of bombs kill 15
civilians around Baghdad

Violence prevalent
amid planned exit
of U.S. troops
BAGHDAD, (AP) - A series
of blasts struck an area west of
Baghdad on Saturday where day
laborers gather to find work, as
well as a music and clothes mar-
ket in the capital, killing at least
15 people, officials said.
The second day of major
attacks this week in Iraq
underscored the challenges
still facing the country's secu-
rity forces as they approach a
particularly fragile time. All
American troops are scheduled
to be out of Iraq in a matter of
weeks, leaving Iraqi security
forces with sole responsibility
for securing the country.
The first two bombs exploded
in the early morning in an area
where day laborers wait for work

in the mostly Sunni village of
al-Zaidan, near the town of Abu
Ghraib west of Baghdad. They
killed seven people and wounded
11 others, the officials said.
Hours later, three bombs
exploded near the kiosks of ven-
dors selling CDs and militaryuni-
forms in central Baghdad's Bab
al-Sharqi market district, killing
eight people and wounding19.
"I went outside my shop and
saw people running in all direc-
tions trying to leave the market
area. I saw several bodies and
wounded people on the ground,"
said Mohammed Youssef, who
owns a clothing shop in the area.
Iraqi military commanders
ordered all the vendors selling
products in the area to close their
kiosks and move, in an attempt
to clear out the area and make
it harder for insurgents to hide
bombs.
Healthofficials at Abu Ghraib's
general hospital and at three

hospitals in Baghdad confirmed
the casualty figures. All officials
spoke on condition of anonymity
because they were not authorized
to release the information.
Violence has ebbed across
Iraq, but deadly bombings and
shootings still occur almost daily
as U.S. troops prepare to leave by
the end of the year. Iraqi secu-
rity officials maintain that they
are fully prepared for the with-
drawal, which is required under
a 2008 security pact between the
U.S. and Iraq..
On Thursday, three bombs
struck the southern city of Basra,
killing19 people.
Earlier this week, the top U.S.
general in Iraq, Lloyd Austin,
said that there would likely be
some "turbulence" after Ameri-
can troops depart, as insurgents
try to strengthen their positions.
But he did not think there would
be a wholesale disintegration of
security.

Upgrades to
electrical, heating
and security systems
among renovations
OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (AP) -
Theodore Roosevelt had a lot of
stuff.
There's the massive head of a
2,000-pound African cape buf-
falo hanging over a fireplace near
the front entrance of his home,
Sagamore Hill, on the north
shore of Long Island. Next to a
large desk in the North Room
sits a wastepaper basket made
from the hollowed foot of an
elephant. Nearby, there's an ink-
well crafted from part of a rhino.
More than four dozen rugs made
from bearskins and other crea-
tures taken down by the noted
big game hunter adorn nearly
every room.
There are 8,000 books, and
thousands of items from flags to
furniture, busts to baubles and
medals to mementoes.
Everything must go.
The entire contents of Saga-
more Hill are being packed up
and put in storage as the National
Park Service prepares for a three-

year, $6.2 million renovation of
the 28-room, Queen Anne-Shin-
gle style mansion in Oyster Bay.
The 26th president of the United
States, who had the home built for
him in 1885, lived there until his
death in 1919. He used Sagamore
Hill as a "summer White House"
during his presidency from 1901-
1909.
Workers have already spent
nine months packing books and
other smaller items into boxes,
using special care to catalog
every one and place it on a com-
puter spreadsheet. The three-
story home has 15 bedrooms and
three bathrooms, as well as sit-
ting rooms and offices. It sits on
a nearly 83-acre high atop a hill
overlooking an inlet that leads to
Long Island Sound.
Sagamore Hill, which sees
about 50,000 visitors annually,
closes to the public on Dec. 5 so
craftspeople can begin the heavy
lifting in earnest to rehabilitate
the 1885 home that hasn't seen
any major renovations in more
than a half century. A much
smaller display of Roosevelt
memorabilia - including his
White House china- will remain
on display in a smaller building
on the property throughout the
three-year project.

Plans call for upgrades to the
electrical, heating, security and
fire suppression systems through-
out the home, which has been a
National Park Service historic
site since the early 1960s. Exte-
rior work will include a new roof,
gutter and drainage system, foun-
dation waterproofing, and restora-
tion of 78 historic windows, doors,
porches and siding.
Also to be restored are Saga-
more Hill's original rear porch
and a skylight in the center of the
house, both of which were altered
or removed in the 1950s when
the Theodore Roosevelt Associa-
tion owned the property and first
opened it to public visits. The
association ran Sagamore Hill for
abouta decade before the National
Park Service took over in 1962 - a
somewhat fitting custodian for the
home of the manwho championed
the creation of the national park
system. ,
"Theodore Roosevelt's house
is like anybody else's house," said
Amy Verone, chief of cultural
resources at Sagamore Hill. She
joked, however, that not everyone
tackling a renovation project in
their home has to contend with I
finding a place for 10-foot-ele-
phant tusks adorned with silver
inlays.
