"I hope people are smart enough to not use those cheap glasses there selling to look at the eclipse. It'll be profitable for the optometrist business when kids eyes are burned out."

Reckless Reporting and Investigating in Motorcycle Accidents

I have presented numerous articles where the police and media cooperate in further ruining the lives of an accident victim by misrepresenting the accident so as to shift the blame towards the motorcyclist, bicyclist or pedestrian hit by a vehicle.  Here's another good example out of Ottawa County.From The Holland Sentinel 8-19-17:  "Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office responded to a…See More

The closest I could find for approx. times is for the Muskegon area. Enjoy but be careful of eye damage.…See More

"Thanks X. Do you have any guesses as to why the lighthouse structure is so well lit at that time of the night?"

"Thanks for those pictures X. They show exactly why the beach should remain in it's natural state. The beach is a buffer between development and the Lake. If any improvements are done they will be washed away unless a break-wall is built to hold…"

West End of Ludington Rises Up After Receiving News It's Turning Into a Water Trailhead

Don't mess with mother nature they say.  The same week the city council accepts a $300,000 grant from the MI DNR Trust Fund to help construct a water trailhead at the end of Ludington Avenue, the West End roars back with another idea.  Today, the beach's…See More

Ludington lighthouse

This is a rare photo of the lighthouse lit up at night. I took this photo at night after the sun set. It was dark and the lighthouse was barely visible except for it's lantern. Can anyone guess why the lighthouse is so lit up. It's not Photoshopped.

    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.

    Now go to the…
