Ludington City Council Meeting, September 24, 2018: Assessing the Situation

The September 24, 2018 meeting of the Ludington City Council had a few items on the agenda, none of which appeared controversial, and as if to bolster that image, all votes were unanimous for the various items this evening and no acrimony surfaced between any of the city officials, only levity and goodwill. A controversy was introduced during the latter public comment period, but even that was dismissed as unreasonable.…See More

"If the prevailing attitude taken by Ludington's educators were credible then most of Ludington's structures should be replaced.  Replacing buildings because they have reached a particular age is just plain idiotic or should it be…"

"I also noticed that Kennedy stated that the current LSAD debt won't disappear until the 2022-2023 school year. That means the current debt won't be paid for at least 4-5 years now. And they still want more millage now, before they pay this…"

    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…
