Bus Rules

Ok... I just have to say this...So only 6 children( Children do not seriously get the virus, pass it on or die from it except in rare cases) can be on the bus at one time so essentially there will be no bus service? ( another strategy to shut down schools and piss parents off) BUT... the South American fruit and farm workers can FILL up a bus every other day and head to WALMART to do their shopping. Mask less I might add. So the other day , I went to Walmart, although I try to avoid that place…See More

You have probably heard about the Leelanau County Road Commissioner who used a racial slur denigrating those of a certain race in Detroit, blaming them for the current state of affairs.  Commissioner Tom Eckerle was asked why he wasn't wearing a mask at a commission 'zoom' meeting.  Unfortunately, neither was he wearing a gag, for his…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.
