"And the term of Tykoski won't expire for another 3-1/2 years, Dec. 31, 2020, before the chosen one expires. That's a very long appointment if you ask me. If it was another year, or till next election, that would suffice for this…"

This ought to be of interest to you.. I have never seen anything like this before, but it's definitly "Aqua sports"

No, I don't recall the incident, but I am sure it made a mark! It has been my sad experience to "Be there" when a buddy was's a life changing experience, and afterward you have flashbacks for years..

Ray Thompson was a cousin....

Yes, I was looking especially for a "Thompson". I'm not sure if he was a mayor, but he was a VIP with the pm carferry org. Ihe listings don't cover the time period I was interested in, but thanks anyway.

Thank you - Yes Sandy was a mean witch. But we have started the process of rebuilding. She was much worse than Hurricane Irene.

I'm having trouble navigating this site... It will take a few visits and I'll be fine! I thank anyone and everyone for their interest in CARRE. I will be posting the actual lawsuit shortly. Please pay attention to the portion referring to the sour gas leak that took place over a decade ago north of Ludington. I remember hearing about the leak, but do not remember ever seeing the details. I've questioned many others about this, but nobody seems to remember seeing the details about this gas leak in the news. This heavy gas traveled for over 2 days, settling to the lowest point traveling down the Lincoln River, killing nearly 100 head of livestock. It overcame a woman driving over the Lincoln River bridge on Jabavy. It settled in the basement of a daycare center and two of the young children had to be revived and making others ill too. This is in the CARRE lawsuit before Judge Cooper. Our county commissioners, planning commissioners AND the Ludington Daily News are all aware or should have been aware of this if our group was. "Accidents can happen, but what are the odds" is the statement we hear often from Consumers Energy and opponents (most who will not live with the gas lines/wind turbines). The engineer who maintained these lines and the gas company, more than once, has warned the county and Consumers Energy at hearings/meetings not to put these turbines this close to gas lines. As you will see in the lawsuit, the odds for the failure of the safety valves was much great than a trillion to one, yet THREE safety valves FAILED. People in Mason county need to know what our elected and appointed officials are doing. Most of us cannot attend all of the meetings and rely on the local media to report what "actually" transpires at these meetings. In fact, the detailed seriousness of issues that the public should be aware of are not being reported fully. Conflict of interest is an epidemic here. Many in this county are not only "in bed" with others, it's more like an ongoing "slumber party"!!! The last time I saw anything resembling such behavior was in the southern mafia town I grew up in. It was the size of Ludington. I moved because this influence was deterring reputable companies (jobs)from investing in our community. I guess my message here is we all need to be paying attention and demanding accountability from our county government... Have a pleasant week-end and thanks again to those who support our fight we did not invite.... We all have better things to do
