"That's quite the troubling background of Austin Billings, Ludington Firefighter. Is this a volunteer or paid position? Maybe Henderson overlooked the felonies and drug use to rehab him sort of as community service? If so, not the best place for…"

"I think the big question here is, why was he hired and who promoted his hiring? Is he a relative of another member of the LFD or of the City Hall establishment? Something fishy going on regarding his hiring. I can see forgiving a minor infraction…"

The Felonies and the Firefighter

Many occupations in Michigan bar felons from working in their profession through the licensing process through "good moral character" provisions that need to be met before a license to work is granted.  Among these licensed jobs which effectively ban ex-cons are police/correction officers, teachers, and many health care positions (dentists, nurses, etc.).  It may be good policy…See More

"From my recollection, the new elementary construction was a little more than 40% of the $101 million school bond, the new construction at the high school/middle school project was a little less, and around 25% was for other stuff involving buses,…"

"Thanks Willy for the picture worth a thousand words! How true being stuck outside town and what a mess with the traffic (or a hiccup as some like to hope). I categorize this whole $100 million dollar mess by hoping that those who voted yes, sit in…"

"Well stated X. You covered all the bases in this topic. The fact that traffic safety has not been addressed shows that the only thing supporters of this wasteful school project care  about is the fact that they have a glittering new building to…"

Michigan's Democratic Party Slams Parent's Role in Education

State Democrats had to walk back a controversial post made on their official Facebook site early this last weekend.  Surprisingly, the post had been up for around two days, received a couple thousand 'likes' and 'loves', and even more 'shares', before it was ultimately taken down, so one might think that the post reflected the thoughts of many who frequent that site.  One might say the post related the unsaid or quiet thoughts of this political party, and trumpeted it loudly and proudly for…See More

"The news branches of the Big Three networks are more likely to side with the municipality nowadays.  Power-hungry, uncaring corporations like other power-hungry, uncaring corporations (if they're not in competition with them). "

"Actually, this should be a national news story for the ABC, CBS, and NBC networks to broadcast. They would have a field day with this imho."

When the State of Michigan took some drastic measures to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 in early 2020, a lot of businesses were negatively affected, especially those not considered 'essential'.  One…Continue

    Migration Update

    The elves of the Ludington Torch were hopeful that we could move from our current Ning 2.0 network to the Ning 3.0 network shortly after our five year anniversary, but we have got news from them back that they are not currently doing any new migrations to the higher platform at this time.  We surmise that there has been problems with the migrations of other Ning sites, because some things do not transfer very well or at all, including videos and group modules. 

    As they continue to…

    Spammertizing

    Over the last couple of months our members have swelled due to an advertising push by those who join, post an ad, provide a link, and possibly send messages to other members advocating some product or action.  While these are basically harmless if you ignore them, the Torch tech wizards cannot fully protect against the intruders.  I have eradicated about two dozen of these infidels, and will make it a practice to do so in the future.

    Downloading Videos

    Want to download videos for a thread or just to add to our Videos library, but are having a hard time figuring it out?  It's not hard once you know how to do it.  First you will need the Video's "Embed" code; on a typical video site like Youtube they will have a "share" button you need to click, you will then see an "Embed" button you need to click.  You will see the code all in blue, you need to "copy" (as in copy and paste) this code by going to your copy command.

    Now go to the…
