If you thought your December has started badly, consider this fish story.One of Ludington's finest was cruising north in his normal patrol on Washington Avenue near Danaher Street around 2 AM this morning when he saw something fishy along the side of the street. Very fishy, a shark to be exact. But Washington Avenue is quite a ways away from the nearest body of salt water, and they don't generally do a lot of walking on land, so he quickly figured out that it was someone in a shark costume. …See More
Even in the inclement weather conditions, there were basically three major reasons why I chose to go to an away game at Scottville City Hall for their commission meeting rather than go to Ludington's city council meeting being held at the same time just a couple blocks away from my domicile. First, it would be the premiere of 'new' commissioner, Eric Thue, or one could…See More
"I was in the teaching profession for the better part of two decades (as a graduate assistant, associate professor, tutor, and substitute teacher) and seen a fair share of theoretical topics in education that I tried my hardest to digest, but would…"
On November 7, the Mason County Central (MCC) school district held its third election with a $30 million bond proposal on the line, this would be the first time it was split into two fairly-equal-in-cost proposals. The first was mainly concerned with security issues and upgrades at the high school, the second was for auditorium upgrades. Both failed, just like the first two. …See More
"Thanks for the post and information. You are correct about PLC or Professional Learning Communities. What bunch of nonsense. After reading the link you posted on PLC's it makes sense why our education system is so screwed up. The opening…"
The agenda packet for the November 20, 2023 meeting of the Ludington Area School District (LASD) Board only had two actions by the board to take place, both mostly ceremonial and non-controversial in nature, so it was an opportune time to bring forth an issue that should be very controversial and addressed by the board using their established rules. …See More
"Gracias. The problem with the continuing giveaways recurring in Ludington (Lofts on Rowe, 106 Laura, Foster School DPRE (x2) and the two latest low-flying PILOTs) since Mitch Foster has arrived is that it makes the more cynical of us…"
"I haven't heard that song in decades, but it does have a melancholy sound, appropriate for Mr. Bleau's fortunes of late. Perhaps if Mr. Bleau has a comeback so that he can have another fall, I can parody that in the…"
As we begin the week of Thanksgiving, where we celebrate the blessings of the year while watching the Detroit Lions host the Green Bay Packers and enjoying the bounty of the harvest on our dinner tables, folks in Pere Marquette Township have a little bit extra to be thankful for this year. A lot of instability and strife had beset the township over the…See More
Just before the November 13, 2023 meeting of the Ludington City Council meeting they had a reception for outgoing Third Ward Councilor Les Johnson. From past experience, these receptions were always paid for by the taxpayers without their consent rather than by voluntary donations by his co-workers or sponsors, so I avoided it so as not to be a part of the corruption our city is infected with. This may have negatively affected my effort to become the next Third Ward councilor, which would be…See More
"That would be former Mayor Kaye Holman who sadly passed away this year, during the 150th birthday of Ludington. Les Johnson was given a resolution of appreciation this last Monday, remember when Mayor Holman was retiring and had Les hand her…"
"Thank you, Willy. When I finished my resume, I saw that it was rather light on showing experience at the local government level-- but it seemed to me that I've had an incredible amount of experience with local government over the last 15…"
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?
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.
