It's almost been a year since Ottawa County snagged Ludington's erstwhile City Manager John Shay to fill it's deputy county supervisor role, but it looks like that county's police force may be giving…Continue

My report on this meeting will unfortunately be incomplete due to the rather extraordinary coincidence that I did not stay for the full meeting (only the second time I have needed to leave such a…Continue

A Legacy of Love Ludington

I risk quite a bit in pointing out problems that the Ludington Downtown Ludington Board/Downtown Development Authority (synonymous, will use DDA henceforth) has with bidding practices. On Valentine's Day in 2011 I pointed out that the Community Development Director Heather (Venzke) Tykoski's fiancé, and current husband, former city councilor, Nick Tykoski, did over $15,000…See More

Distracted to Death

Accidents happen, people die.  Yet some accidents do not need to happen, some people do not need to die.  If just one of those involved was paying a little more attention to the serious responsibility of operating a several ton machine hurtling down a street, lives could be spared every day.  Each distracted missile fully capable of snuffing out vulnerable users of the roads on bicycles, motorcycles and afoot.  Yesterday was a very sad day in Kent County.  An accident where a bike path and a…See More

No Justice for Local Roadworkers Killed on the Job

An accident much like what killed an Oceana Co man and his daughter happened in the latter part of the summer up in Manistee County.  Unlike in that case, where an elderly truck driver left the side of road and struck the two pedestrians lawfully on the shoulder of that road, in Manistee an elderly car driver drove across the center line and struck…See More

Louise, in the upper right corner of the main page you will see your name and an "inbox (1 new)" link under it.  Click on that and you'll see a message from me.  Click on that, and then reply in that same space.  This will be private messaging between you and me.  I will use my resources to try and verify your claims; our sheriff's office is remarkably cloaked in secrecy (more so than the COL) since KIm Cole assumed the position of sheriff.

I’m not sure how to message you, other than this way...sorry not good with computers. I have no evidence or proof. I’m sorry I wish I knew how to verify the claims all I can tell you is the names of the officers I heard about

Ive heard that a local corrections officer got fired for sleeping with an inmate while on duty and another got fired for falsifying his time card, also A deputy Sargent recently got demoted. What is going on at our local sheriffs office and why is none of this being reported?

I'm curious about something and have not been able to find an answer. I'm hoping you may know the answer. Is it 'usual practice' to use a person's full name in the body of an op-ed?

What I don't understand about the shop with a cop program is where you come up with the $900 plus amount that is not accounted for. Also why is the same $250 card number on two separate receipts? I'm not very good with math and bookkeeping so I'm curious.

Thank you for the nice welcome :)
