The sun has returned, and 80s are right behind. Read on for everything about this week on the Leelanau Peninsula!
Leelanau County 4th of July Extravaganza!
Through a variety of sources including the Leelanau Chamber, Glen Arbor Sun and MichiganFireworks.com, we’ve come up with our Leelanau Fourth of July event listings. Did we miss something? Post a comment letting us know below!
Photo courtesy Rick Lahmann/Leland Chamber of Commerce Somewhere along the line, I lost track of the Sugar Loaf Saga.
Apparently, there is a credible buyer named “Chuck” who may or may not be working with Liko Smith. Sort it out in the Leelanau Blog’s Sugar Loaf forum (52 comments this week alone).
That photo of 2 guys on a Tandem Downhill was taken by NutsyFagan. When people ask me why I think that Sugar Loaf is more than just a piece of property to be shuffled around like a game piece on a board, I think of photos like this.
The Glen Arbor Sun takes a hard look at gas companies who are acquiring mineral rights for “fracking”. If fracking freaks you out or you don’t know what it is, click over for tips about making sure you don’t come out on the wrong end of a deal! There’s also a great tribute to Ernie Harwell by Jack Layne!
|On Absolute Michigan, Weird Michigan author Linda Godfrey told the lighthearted story of Shocking but Scenic Seney. Rep. Bart Stupak and Phil Power told the less lighthearted story of a BP style disaster that is brewing along Michigan’s Great Lakes. You can still enter the Michigan’s Water Photo Contest too!||

We won’t get there today but we won’t get close to the low of 38 from 2001 either! Expect sunny skies with highs near 80 and gusty southwest winds today. More sun on Saturday with highs in the mid 80s. The forecast for Independence day is for partly to mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s and partly sunny on Monday with a chance of showers and 80s again!
