AQUAMAN replied to XLFD's discussion COLDNews Grows Colder: Dumps Delivery Drivers Without Notice
"I'm quite surprised the LDN has much reliable and efficient staff left there nowadays. The way the locals are profiled, COL leaders praised and adored, tourist related projects promoted, while infrastructure crumbles, and the way employees are…"

"Remember the COLDNews massacre at the very end of 2011, where the newspaper released three seasoned employees without notice shortly after the paper was sold to a media conglomerate? Why are those who work at the COLDNews always the last to get the…"

"Yeah I get it, tbh wouldn't mind seeing the rag fold! Living near a big mall where its staple store that helped build it slowly close is hard to watch. All I can say is at least the workers had some notice at my local Sears. Not giving any is…"

"Just a start of what's to come. The print newspaper business is a dinosaur. Home delivery of a printed publication will soon become a thing of the past. This has been seen already in many communities. Eventually, the Ludington Daily News…"

"Not too surprising as Begnoche has always been liberal.  In fact, I believe his daughter worked for Governor Granholm."

"I don't believe getting the news paper delivered by the postal service is a new thing. Back when I was a kid 60 years ago , my parents got the paper delivered by the mail man. Always a day late. I thought then it was dumb. "

COLDNews Grows Colder: Dumps Delivery Drivers Without Notice

Yesterday afternoon, Laura McClellan brought a bit of news to the public's attention in a social media post on Facebook, that has yet to be unrefuted by the local newspaper, known affectionately/disgustedly here as the City of Ludington Daily News (COLDNews).  In an emotional post she stated:She added some details:  Drivers, carriers, and those who knew both commented on her post or elsewhere talking about how the COLDNews handled this conversion to USPS by axing their employees without telling…See More

"The COLDNews seems to be living up to their name.  Giving their loyal carriers the news that they are immediately fired this weekend.  That move blindsided a bunch of employees who now find themselves without a job, many who probably have…"

"I think the LDN is having financial problems. It seems to me that the most reliable way to deliver the paper is from a daily route.  The post office is less reliable especially when it comes to the delivery of bulk mail."

"Another thank you Dave, I see the same thing now on FB, and it's sickening to believe all those contracted carriers can be fired on a non-working work day of Saturday. Sorry for the workers and families affected in a negative financial…"

The August 13, 2018 Ludington City Council meeting had a light agenda considering the council hadn't met for 3 weeks.  Nevertheless, it was attended by the cream of Ludington's plutocrats including…Continue

    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…
