Old Raven's Building Declared Unsafe by Building Inspector

"Major renovations is one thing, but did they just want to repaint and put in new lighting, and new drywall? If so, then that's NOT major at all! Wtheck's the deal? Or is the building structure in major need of repair?"

Old Raven's Building Declared Unsafe by Building Inspector

"The code violation105 is not having a building permit to do renovations, the 116 is for not paying the $500. application fee . I have found Fulker to be fair in his inspection work. Somebody didn't take him serious about following the rules.…"

"Xlfd, do you know if "last meeting minutes" can be commented on in agenda time by the public? Specifically, would it be considered 'agenda,' item for me to rebut Krauch's end-of-meeting comment about my miscalculation of…"

General John Kelly Destroys Lies About Trump’s Call to Widow of Fallen Soldier

"I was thinking of posting this video earlier, because I think General Kelly did a very good job of defending the president versus a very politically-motivated attack.  It's quite sad when a grieving widow is exploited by an empty barrel,…"

    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.

    Now go to the…
