Cognitive Effects of Too Much Lead in the Water on City Officials

In the years following the Flint water crisis, which began in 2014, the issue of lead in the water has cropped up in many other Michigan communities.  What generally happens is that elevated lead levels (ELL) either show up in the blood of kids being tested or in building taps undergoing testing.  Suspicion turns to the long-time water utility provider, usually the city corporate, who has been providing water to residents for well over a hundred years and has had no need to replace many of the…See More

"Pretty unusual case for a MSP man in these parts of Michigan, sad. I hope he gets the treatment and help needed to correct his actions for the future too."

The Oceana County Press ran a story about an Off-duty state trooper arrested for drunk driving.  This Michigan State Police (MSP) trooper seems to have driven his Chevy Cruze early Sunday morning (October 6th) around 1 AM off the road and hit several trees after failing to negotiate a…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.

    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.
