"My opinion is also that this graffiti-style collage is an absolute eye-sore. It looks like the welcome mat for a heroin party. "

"I heard there were plans at one time years ago to connect Lower-Hamlin, with Lake Michigan. Growing up, I lived in that exact area. It was always my belief that the mining of sand for glass was also part of an excavation process for that future…"

"The mural you show was originally crafted by Andy Thomas of AM Galleries and Starving Artist Breweries fame.  The one across the way from that was outlined by Thomas and Scott Bentz and then painted in 2014 by a FNL crowd, this side was painted…"

The Ludington Dunes Conservancy noted on April 19th (listing media sources) that:"The Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Board has recommended an additional $7.5 million to purchase approximately 337 acres of private land adjacent to Ludington State Park in Mason County.

"I've heard before that Michigan lagged in ethics and don't know how to comment in any positive way on this article. It is depressing that Michigan ranks last in ethics in the nation. Is there any hope, any sunshine in our future? And our…"

"Very true description Willy. Exactly what I've thought of that mural here in Ludington--looks like railcar graffiti. Does anyone know who did the art or how it got there? Is it scheduled for demolition soon?"

ART OR EYESORE

As I was driving thru town the other evening the sun was shining at such an angle that it lit up those murals located downtown on Ludington Ave., as if they were neon. You all know the ones, boxing in the vacant, soon to be, weedy lot.  I'm not an art snob and I do like abstract images, which I create myself as part of my hobby…See More

A Tax Season Reminder

"Robin Hoods story is a classic study in class warfare. If there exists a regime of tyranny such as an overbearing and controlled society by a few ruling class leaders such as what happened in Russia, then Robin would of course be a hero of the…"

The Suicide and the Cherry County Sheriff

It came as little surprise that when a study was done back in 2015, Michigan ranked last on transparency and ethics laws among all 50 states.  While this does not automatically suggest that it is the most corrupt state, it does mean that our state has the laxest rules and rule implementations on the books in order to assess the systems intended…See More

A Tax Season Reminder

Let’s break down the original story for a second.- Members of the monarchy are born into positions of power despite having never been elected.- Peasants are born into a life of poverty, with all of their acquisitions being stolen from them by…

    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…
