"Amen.  Surprised to hear Wells was taken off of the invented detective position.  I say, "invented" because in her interview on August 8, 2013, with Wells (Bob Ford's sister's interview) Wells apologetically told her…"

"Yup, I just recently heard Wells was back on the squad car beat. I agree X, being a father and good spouse takes work, not ego. Truth and humility are a sore lacking quality in all too many in the hierarchy at city hall these days. "

"Normally, I could care about some Joe Blow being true to his marriage vows, but when it comes to a person in a position of trust it becomes an issue.  Unless his ex-wife is making up stories, this Joe Blow Wells was willing to give up on his…"

"The negative effects of blue lights were understood in 2010 and have their genesis back to 1958.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2831986/ And here is one from 2011 discussing the link between blue lighting, melatonin suppression…"

"Thanks for reminding me Aquaman. What the city told us is that the 34 LED streetlights would cost $880 per pole exactly $29,920. Same thing with the DDA , 66 LED streetlights @ $880 per pole comes out to $58,080. Actual expenditures by the city…"

Mayor Ryan Cox, goodbye crook

"Unfortunately there was nothing redeeming about his term in office. He was the epitome of the go along to get along politician. To bad for the citizens of Ludington but they're the ones who elected him. Again, it is my opinion that very few…"

Mayor Ryan Cox, goodbye crook

"I wouldn't classify him in the crook category, he was more of a crook enabler.  A very ineffective mayor/reserve police officer who thumbed his nose at the city charter and state Constitution all too often just to fit in with the…"

    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.

    Now go to the…
