"That's the point, Willy.  As a public facility, they cannot allow one class to use the pool freely (slip holders at either of the two public marinas), one class to pay a monthly stipend (as they do for owners of the condos to the north),…"

"I think the policy the COL is trying to put forth is that the facilities are open to the public but only to those that pay the necessary fees. It could be argued that if a fee is not established for use then the facilities would be swarmed with…"

"Thanks very much Freedom Seeker.  Fair judges are getting harder and harder to find, but I won't mind an unfair judge who will show their true colors and agree with the city attorney's legal theory that a couple of minutes of fully…"

"I hope you prevail, X. The fees are ridiculous extortion and may be coverup for wrong doings. Getting a fair Judge now may be a hurdle. Will be praying for justice for the people (as you represent)."

Lawsuit Against City of Ludington Seeks Relief Against Unlawful FOIA Fees

At the beginning of my second comment at the June 10th, 2024 meeting of the Ludington City Council, my process server gave the city clerk the defendant's copy of a lawsuit I filed against the City of Ludington (COL) in the local circuit court on June 6th.  The complaint, shown in full below, was accompanied by a court summons and a motion to…See More

A Public Meeting in Ludington Where the General Public Cannot Attend

It's been about four years since a civil rights crisis broke out in Ludington right in the midst of the worldwide COVID social experiment, but a recent announcement forces us to look back again on those times.  In the middle of summer, the virus had subsided enough to enable most of the local tourism industry to get back to normal, among these was Harbor View Marina (HVM).  Over the prior winter, the marina went from being a state-owned, privately-ran facility to being managed instead by our…See More

    Migration Update

    The elves of the Ludington Torch were hopeful that we could move from our current Ning 2.0 network to the Ning 3.0 network shortly after our five year anniversary, but we have got news from them back that they are not currently doing any new migrations to the higher platform at this time.  We surmise that there has been problems with the migrations of other Ning sites, because some things do not transfer very well or at all, including videos and group modules. 

    As they continue to…

    Spammertizing

    Over the last couple of months our members have swelled due to an advertising push by those who join, post an ad, provide a link, and possibly send messages to other members advocating some product or action.  While these are basically harmless if you ignore them, the Torch tech wizards cannot fully protect against the intruders.  I have eradicated about two dozen of these infidels, and will make it a practice to do so in the future.

    Downloading Videos

    Want to download videos for a thread or just to add to our Videos library, but are having a hard time figuring it out?  It's not hard once you know how to do it.  First you will need the Video's "Embed" code; on a typical video site like Youtube they will have a "share" button you need to click, you will then see an "Embed" button you need to click.  You will see the code all in blue, you need to "copy" (as in copy and paste) this code by going to your copy command.

    Now go to the…
