News from the Week
The top story was the passing of former President and Michigan native Gerald R. Ford. Ford brought common sense and fair dealing to Washington at a time when our country was sorely tested. Other stories included a look at how folks wrote 100 years ago in Leelanau, a grant to cover some needed repairs at the Grand Traverse Lighthouse and severe weather damage to crops in 2006.
