Students Hate Trump’s First 100 Days Accomplishments… Until Learning They’re Obama’s Accomplishments tag:ludingtoncitizen.ning.com,2017-04-28:4689834:Video:344604 2017-04-28T13:59:24.020Z XLFD http://ludingtoncitizen.ning.com/profile/TheLudingtonCitizen <a href="http://ludingtoncitizen.ning.com/video/students-hate-trump-s-first-100-days-accomplishments-until"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/404xgKZtqKENYIiM-prbWKOvZx2NmZy6Ym5BEhUlg0zCLma5RSBuiE3JpCxOSCKUu*-7gyeY2u173w45c3UxHt8P5XQEIY0Z/1273084013.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>As we observe the 100th day of Donald Trump's presidency this Saturday, April 29, it's instructive to observe this video of the perceptions of young folks attending an institution of higher learning, George Mason University.

The interviewer first establishes that these aren't Trump fans, then asks them their opinions on what was accomplished the first 100 days.<br /> Predictably, the students pan the "apology tour", the stimulus package, the relaxation of lawsuit regulations while nazifying Donald Trump in the process of stating their views. Until they are finally informed by the interviewer that those deeds were accomplished in Barack Obama's first 100 days. Oops.

Love sunsets? Love lighthouses? Dreamed of being a lighthouse keeper?<br /> The Sable Point Lighthouse Keepers (SPLK) nonprofit is looking for volunteers to man three of its iconic Lake Michigan lighthouses this summer.<br /> <br /> The organization invites you to "step back in time and fulfill your dream."<br /> <br /> SPLKA has summer openings for volunteer keepers at Big Sable Lighthouse in Ludington State Park, the Ludington Breakwater Lighthouse in Ludington and the Little Sable Point Lighthouse in Silver Lake State Park. Volunteers at the Big Sable even sleep at the lighthouse.<br /> <br /> Big Sable will celebrate its 150th anniversary this summer. It is one of the oldest continuously working lighthouses in Michigan and the second tallest on Lake Michigan's eastern shore. Anniversary events will take place monthly from May through October.<br /> The Ludington-based association preserves and promotes four lighthouses in total.<br /> <br /> SPLKA relies on volunteers to man and operate the lighthouses to help fulfill the mission of keeping the lighthouses accessible to the public.<br /> <br /> Volunteers have included teacher, business executives, college students and retirees -- the one thing they have in common is a love for lighthouses and dedication to preserving maritime history.<br /> <br /> Volunteers responsibilities include but are not limited to working in the lighthouses' respective gift shops, greeting guests, cleaning and maintaining the grounds and sharing Michigan's maritime history from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.<br /> <br /> No wages are given for working at the lighthouses. Instead, volunteers are "paid in sunsets," as former SPLKA Director Nancy Jones eloquently put it in October 2015.<br /> <br /> Volunteers serve for two week tours from May to October at Big Sable and one week tours at Little Sable and Breakwater.<br /> <br /> SPLKA provides housing and training for all positions.<br /> <br /> Volunteers must be 18 years and older and must be able to climb steps. There is also an association fee. Room is included but volunteers supply their own food and bedding. A washer and dryer are available at the sites.<br /> <br /> For more information, contact Rachel Bendele at splkaoperations@gamail.com, 231-845-7417.
