Access and Denial: Two Good Things to Come from the October 12th Council Meeting

Started this discussion. Last reply by XLFD on Monday. 4 Replies

Frankly, after many years of attending and chronicling Ludington City Council meetings, I often have nothing good to report since the tendency of the City appears often to veer towards the absurd,…Continue

When Strong Town's civil engineer Charles Marohn visited Ludington earlier this year, he made quite an impression on city leaders, and on me.  Marohn has a natural awareness of what makes a city…Continue

Picture Tells the Story That Police, Media Won't

When it comes to a motorcycle accident, the police and media almost always seem to avoid telling what exactly happened in order to make a negative statement against the victim.  They may omit facts, they may make misleading statements, and/or they might fabricate a narrative.  They did at least two of those in relating a crash that happened last night, Tuesday, October 20th in the Grand Rapids area.  WYOMING, Mich.

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.

Sure hope to hear these names! Bullies need exposed!

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?

Idk how to use this site sorry but hopefully you could help or point me the right way

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 :)
