Willy replied to XLFD's discussion Developments in Manistee: Riverfront Apartments
"I guess the third time is a charm. What ever happened to the days when private enterprise was just that, private and not propped up with tax dollars. So, taxpayers in Ludington, after being soaked for $100 million in new education debts,  are…"

"Nope, no new plans to save Foster or any of the other soon-to-be-abandoned schools, just another analysis of a rather shady practice by GMB Architecture to make renovating school units seem an unattractive option, by inflating the cost to do…"

shinblind replied to XLFD's discussion Raising the Roof, Local School Version
"Am I missing something in all of this? Is there a new plan to keep Foster School? Or is the plan moving forward to abandoned the school and within that context  of not being able to sell it to possible raze it?And then have the taxpayers on…"

"The MCC price is more in-line with how much roof replacements actually cost in the area, the one quoted by the GMB architect is totally out of the realm of reasonable, and would have to come with a lot of those marble gargoyles and gold leaf to…"

"After two failed attempts to make the Glik's Building into apartment housing complexes, it looks as if this property instead will get an occupant, but not one that would pay property taxes.  West Shore Community College haspurchased the…"

Willy replied to XLFD's discussion Raising the Roof, Local School Version
"Could the paper have gotten the price of the roof repair wrong. It doesn't seem possible that there is such a huge difference between Ludington's bid numbers and Mason County's cost? If the figures are correct then we have a huge…"

"Deja vu all over again? Nick Wroble arrested and arraigned for breaking and entering (much like a previous charge of home invasion).  This violated his probation and he's back in a familiar place."

Freedom Seeker replied to XLFD's discussion Raising the Roof, Local School Version
"More than the roof, the $100plus million is exorbitant. It seems that there is enough padding in the $100 million for extreme misuse of funds, showing the few examples you have on bloated bidding, X. It was in the marketing to the public to pass…"

Raising the Roof, Local School Version

Last night, the Mason County Central (MCC) School Board in Scottville approved a bid for premium roof repairs to be done on most of their high school.  Four companies submitted bids and the superintendent was rather pleased with the low bid, as noted in the weekend local paper:…See More

"I have done a little more investigation this morning, and as I stated earlier, I am by no means defending anything about what happened in 2014 with Blackburn, nor with the court at that point. What does concern me is what happened in 2019 after his…"

Willy replied to XLFD's discussion Villains and Victims
"If the reporting of the story is true it sounds like Blackburn got off easy again. He's destined for a lot of time in jail the way he is going. All I have to say is that the police are not going to be wrong all of the time and it may be that…"

Willy replied to XLFD's discussion Which County has the Worst Roads in the State?
"Below is a photo I took while touring Florida some years ago. I call it the quilted road. There is not even a square inch of of the road that does not have a patch. Of course this road is located in an isolated and rural area."

AQUAMAN replied to XLFD's discussion Fuzzy LASD Bond Math
"I just wonder how many of the LASD board members are from Lud. originally. We already know Sup. Kennedy is an outsider, and bet there is alot more, including many teachers. Nice graph Willy, shows why we have been stagnant and losing for many years."

Willy replied to XLFD's discussion Fuzzy LASD Bond Math
"Harsco's leaving is significant. If many of it's employees leave the area with their families the population of Ludington will fall below the 8,000 mark. A number not seen for over a hundred years. Ludingtons growth has been mostly…"

This is a sad but true black comedy of a black-hearted man named Blackburn and the blackguards of our local justice system.  It features no valiant heroes, only villains; it has no victors, only…Continue

    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.
