Harbor View Marina Renters Scram Early, State Asks City to Take Over

Be prepared to subsidize another marina. Around 60 years ago, private marinas sprung up in Ludington's harbor, nestled or near the Pere Marquette Lake Bayou.  The success of these ventures led to the city considering it's own…See More

First They Came for the Tree Fines...

At the Ludington City Council meeting on June 13, 2016, the minutes reflect that the city had the first reading of an ordinance that would create a Tree Advisory Board to 'protect trees' and 'establish an urban forestry program'.  The minutes also reflect that I made a comment warning anybody who was listening that the City…See More

Steve Miller's First Public Scandal

2018 could be Ludington Mayor Candidate Steve Miller's year as he seems the prohibitive favorite to claim the top spot on November 6 and lead the city for the next 4 or more years. He definitely started off the year on a successful note in his career as WMOM's sale and marketing director, scoring a lucrative deal valued over $5000 for the soon-to-be-declared Michigan radio station of the year.…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?

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.

Perhaps time to “treat” them to a recall election. Oops, no ---------- way past time.
