Picture Tells the Story That Police, Media Won't

When it comes to a motorcycle accident, the police and media almost always seem to avoid telling what exactly happened in order to make a negative statement against the victim.  They may omit facts, they may make misleading statements, and/or they might fabricate a narrative.  They did at least two of those in relating a crash that happened last night, Tuesday, October 20th in the Grand Rapids area.  WYOMING, Mich.

Access and Denial: Two Good Things to Come from the October 12th Council Meeting

Frankly, after many years of attending and chronicling Ludington City Council meetings, I often have nothing good to report since the tendency of the City appears often to veer towards the absurd,…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.

    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.
