AQUAMAN replied to XLFD's discussion Harbor View Marina Renters Scram Early, State Asks City to Take Over
"I had always heard that this lease for Harbor View was for only the first 20 years, not 25, but that's window dressing. The fact is, this whole lease of a DNR/State owned and financed marina was the first of it's nature ever tried, no…"

"This is EXACTLY why the city turned their back on the trouble around the Bayou and spent the money elsewhere! What is funny/odd is that the 2 main culprits, Shay and Krauch packed up and left town! If Schuette had the public in mind these guys may…"

Harbor View Marina Renters Scram Early, State Asks City to Take Over

Be prepared to subsidize another marina. Around 60 years ago, private marinas sprung up in Ludington's harbor, nestled or near the Pere Marquette Lake Bayou.  The success of these ventures led to the city considering it's own…See More

"Yet, I think Bill Dustman doesn't have the best skill set for being mayor, if that makes sense.  I think he would be more effective as a councilor.  Mayor Holman declared she wouldn't seek another term as mayor after candidates…"

First They Came for the Tree Fines...

At the Ludington City Council meeting on June 13, 2016, the minutes reflect that the city had the first reading of an ordinance that would create a Tree Advisory Board to 'protect trees' and 'establish an urban forestry program'.  The minutes also reflect that I made a comment warning anybody who was listening that the City…See More

"Very well thought out and said X, you hit the nail again and thanks for the heads up on the Mayoral candidates. The only problem is, will the voters see all this before voting?"

"The choice is clear between both candidates for mayor.  One is unapologetically conservative, the other is evasive about his core beliefs (which are decidedly progressive if you review his posts over the years) One has no problem talking about…"

"As stated in another post, people will travel to get it. Back 55 years ago my teen friends smoked the weed, I never did smoke anything, I drank beer. Where have I heard that before?  Where they got it? don't know, never wanted to know.…"

"Dustman isn't running like a real candidate, he's running in the DARK, no signage, no nothing. If he is really serious, he needs to do his homework, now, or never!"

Freedom Seeker replied to XLFD's discussion Steve Miller's First Public Scandal
"WOW!  Unbelievable!  Mant thoughts come to mind.  First, thanks for the excellent research, X.  Secondly, I pray for the future of the city if Miller is elected Mayor with this example of lack of ethics.  And former mayor…"

Steve Miller's First Public Scandal

2018 could be Ludington Mayor Candidate Steve Miller's year as he seems the prohibitive favorite to claim the top spot on November 6 and lead the city for the next 4 or more years. He definitely started off the year on a successful note in his career as WMOM's sale and marketing director, scoring a lucrative deal valued over $5000 for the soon-to-be-declared Michigan radio station of the year.…See More

"Maybe the Badger can offer ''Spark One Up'' cruises this summer where they will take a bunch of Cheesers into Michigan waters to indulge while being legal.  The snack concessions alone should make this a profitable venture."

Barney Reinberg replied to AQUAMAN's discussion LHS Football in the group Sports Central!
"Currently, all teams in class B that have qualified for the playoffs. Ludington has the lowest total play off points. Even with a win against MCC, I doubt ludington will get a home playoff game. If they are lucky they will only travel to manistee.…"

AQUAMAN replied to AQUAMAN's discussion LHS Football in the group Sports Central!
"last playoff, corrected, was only a few years ago, but we lost, out of town. This time we may have home field advantage, if we win at MCC next Friday, it's a 7-2 record, and we "may just get Home Field" advantage to operate from, and…"

    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…
