Freedom Seeker replied to XLFD's discussion Ludington City Council Meeting July 8, 2019: Freedom, Fireworks, and Fifth Wheels
"I agree, Inquiring Mind. And it seems the police should be happy to enforce the ordinance to pay down their pension rather than have the taxpayer foot the higher tax. Perhaps another instance of "for the tourist and not the residents.""

"Your not comparing apples with apples. When you have a rocket launch or test a engine the noise doesn't continue for hours and is not usually done at night. Some years I would have gladly paid the police department myself to go and find the…"

"Tom I think your way off on this problem. People that set off fireworks all night have no consideration for other people. Just as an example how would you feel if you had a medical emergency or severe accident and you knew that your Doctors and…"

"That will be done eventually.  Great point, shinblind, although I can estimate from what I've seen that few of those addresses tested were in the worse problem areas-- most of the houses tested seemed to be in the more recent houses in…"

"It would be interesting to compare the addresses used for previous water tests with the area they were taken from, the pink, orange or green. "

Ludington Water Assets and Liabilities

Last week, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) hosted virtual town halls to provide information to residents on sampling that will be done in communities throughout the state to test the drinking water.  These were held Tuesday through Thursday with each day addressing a different part of Michigan (Southern Michigan, the Northern Lower Peninsula, and the Upper Peninsula).  Ironically, TV 9&10 didn't cover the town halls until they were through on Friday,…See More

"In reviewing the PM Township Zoning Ordinances, I see on p. 64-65 (aka 3-23 and 3-24), I see in 3.34(j) that:   "Dwellings shall be aesthetically compatible in design and appearance with other residences in the vicinity. The compatibility…"

"By quite and peaceful I was referring to the time after fireworks were legalized and we heard fireworks going off for weeks prior to and weeks after the 4th. Allowing limited days makes for more quiet 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.
