"They chose O'Neil Newkirk tonight in a unanimous vote.  I am not taking credit for anything, because he may have been the best candidate in their eyes after the interviews, but I used some Machiavellian tactics to get Newkirk to the top as…"

Local State of Hypocrisy

On March 10, 2020, Governor Gretchen Whitmer declared a state of emergency in Michigan.  While the policy's strictness has waxed and waned over the last thirteen months due mainly to the state legislature's attempt to usurp the governor's authoritarian dictates, the governor's policies mostly live on through the state's health & human services department.  Over that thirteen month period, public bodies throughout Michigan have been strongly encouraged to hold virtual, electronic public…See More

"It doesn't seem right, the lesser charge under MCL 257.601 (misdemeanor for causing bodily injury but not fleeing scene) and MCL 257.617 (felony for causing bodily injury and fleeing the scene), but maybe Ansaro sat in the MCC school parking…"

"There's quite a bit of difference.  The charge pursued is a misdemeanor that could result in up to 93 days.  Hit & Run causing serious impairment is a felony that can get you 5 years and $5000 fines.  The unbelievable and…"

Scottville Interviews Three City Manager Candidates

On Thursday, April 15, 2021, the Scottville City Commission hosted an interview of three candidates at a 6:30 PM meeting open to the public at the Scottville Optimist Building.  This was a special meeting of that body for that sole purpose, where once again they approved an agenda without an initial public comment period, as required by Scottville's City Charter section…See More

" So one has to wonder if " COMMITTING A MOVING VIOLATION  " causing injury is a lesser crime than HIT and RUN ?  He knew what he was did or why did he take the back roads towards Ludington? Still something fishy about his…"

    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…
