Ludington City Council Meeting, December 10, 2018: Between Hey and Grass

The city council chambers of Ludington usually don't see a lot of people in the audience for a December meeting, but it was filling rather quickly this night for some reason that wasn't immediately clear.  The 2019 city budget was scheduled to be passed, but such meetings usually are avoided, even when there's plenty of salaries scheduled to jump.  Only a couple of things were scheduled to be passed regarding cemetery rates, modestly going up.  Not a crowd-drawer.  Everything else was normal…See More

MSU Student Government Gives Minors, Aliens the Right to Vote

Local governments can get a little crazy sometimes in trying to go around federal or state laws, we see that happen all the time in Ludington; but sometimes these little fiefs can go plumb loco with their own delusions of power.  Like most colleges and universities, Michigan State University (MSU) has their own student government, the Associated Students of MSU or ASMSU.  This local quasi-government group has some real power over the 50,000 plus students attending that university, and can…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. 

    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.
