XLFD replied to Willy's discussion Business of the year award 2014
"My presumption is that the public at large can submit a nomination on any business that meets the criteria.  The nominators of McDonald's Bakery were Eleanor Anderson (who I believe is a nurse) and Mary Lynn Kuhn who at 76 years…"

"That's what I meant by "who" nominates and "how" the process works. The link didn't mention if a person had to be a member of the Chamber or someone from the public at large could nominate a candidate. Neither did it…"

Is Ludington City Manager John Shay Required to Take an Oath of Office?

While they have never stated anything until this last week, I always have got the impression that the various city leaders are totally indifferent that Ludington City Manager John Shay has not ever taken an oath of office in his nearly thirteen years of service. City Attorney Richard Wilson made a somewhat compelling argument as to why the nearly sixty people who hold the office of Ludington City Attorney do not have to swear an oath of office, but the argument regarding the city manager has…See More

"It would be interesting to know the speed limit in that intersection too. It appears to me from the video, that if it's indeed about 25-30, that cop was speeding around 40-45mph. That alone could have caused this disaster, with reaction time…"

    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.
