Ludington City Council October 11, 2021: Bright Lights and Big Noises

The agenda packet for the October 11, 2021 meeting of the Ludington City Council showed no action items, but it did offer a presentation and a public hearing, and a few people in the community took the opportunity to comment on things that concerned them.  Mayor Steve Miller almost bypassed…See More

"A force of 35-40 would be an awful lot for the COL, but more than half of those are just based here and deal with issues throughout the county.  Ideal size of local police forces is generally an issue decided by city councils and county…"

"Willy, again you make more astute observations. If there is any manual to follow for police dept. sizes, the ones they got here have been completely ignored, or just put in file 13. Both forces, LPD & MCSO, are both way over budgeted with double…"

"X. Even if they officers were on a different call there were still 3 of them at one location. Were they all driving separate cars? I have to ask, what was the purpose of tax payers dishing out hard earned tax money for body cams and microphones if…"

"Aquaman, you bring up some good points. Just how many officers are needed for a town the size of Ludington? Is there a manual with directions for cities to follow regarding the size and make up of local police agencies? Does the size of the force…"

"That's a very astute observation Willy. I have been saying for many years the LPD has way too many officers on patrol. The dept. employs about 35-40 officers in total to my understanding. For a population  like ours, about 8,000 ppl.. We…"

    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…
