An ice rink installed in downtown Ludington for the winter that requires little maintenance because the ice is synthetic, sounds like a dream.  But that dream came true this winter when the DDA…Continue

A Local City Councilor to be Proud Of

In the eleven years I have been following the Ludington City Council, there hasn't really been a time that I can remember where I was 100% proud of a councilor.  There have been times where I have been inspired by a seemingly random act of good judgment or of courage, where a councilor breaks the hive mentality at least for a fraction of a meeting, but then they always slink back to the herd.  I have seen almost all councilors over the years have a shining moment in the sun, unfortunately their…See More

Louise, in the upper right corner of the main page you will see your name and an "inbox (1 new)" link under it.  Click on that and you'll see a message from me.  Click on that, and then reply in that same space.  This will be private messaging between you and me.  I will use my resources to try and verify your claims; our sheriff's office is remarkably cloaked in secrecy (more so than the COL) since KIm Cole assumed the position of sheriff.

I’m not sure how to message you, other than this way...sorry not good with computers. I have no evidence or proof. I’m sorry I wish I knew how to verify the claims all I can tell you is the names of the officers I heard about

Ive heard that a local corrections officer got fired for sleeping with an inmate while on duty and another got fired for falsifying his time card, also A deputy Sargent recently got demoted. What is going on at our local sheriffs office and why is none of this being reported?

I'm curious about something and have not been able to find an answer. I'm hoping you may know the answer. Is it 'usual practice' to use a person's full name in the body of an op-ed?

What I don't understand about the shop with a cop program is where you come up with the $900 plus amount that is not accounted for. Also why is the same $250 card number on two separate receipts? I'm not very good with math and bookkeeping so I'm curious.

Thank you for the nice welcome :)
