"Very accurate account of these proposals, hope most read it, and understand what is at stake too. But, I wouldn't be surprised to see a rebuttal on Monday or Tuesday of it by someone like Cain or Moonbeam that tries to derail that with more…"

Councilor Castonia Throwing His Hat in the Ring for Mayor

Just a couple of hours ago, Councilor Gary Castonia declared his intent to run for Mayor of Ludington. If successful, who will serve the last two years of his city council term, you may ask? Whoever the current council picks.

Charter Amendments Fall Short on Accountability, a Newspaper Editorial

A hearty thanks to the new managing editor of the Ludington Daily News, Patti Klevorn, for publishing in its entirety an essay I wrote regarding the proposed charter amendments, and how they were not a good fit for the community in today's newspaper at the top of page 5. Whereas, plenty more could be added explaining why these…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.

    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.
