Leelanau (and Leelanau.com) in the News
In today’s featured story on Leelanau.com we have a roundup of some recent regional & national media coverage Leelanau has gotten recently that includes a video report on M-22 that Leelanau.com was a part of. We’ll keep bringing you these stories, and if you have links, email us or share them on the Leelanau.com Facebook!
Leelanau County Election Results
The results are not final, but probably the biggest news is Republican Ray Franz beating incumbent Democrat (and Leelanau resident) Dan Scripps for the 101st District State House. The Record-Eagle’s Leelanau County Results page says that the new 86th District Court Judge will be Mike Stepka and that Larry J. Nelson looks to be the new Leelanau County Probate Judge. The parks request in Suttons Bay failed, but Fire & Rescue Millage in Leland & Elmwood and the solid waste and recycling proposal rolled to passage. School bonds in Suttons Bay and Leland passed as well. If you click through to Leelanau.com you can see your new slate of County Commissioners and don’t miss this feature on Leland School’s regional student mock election.
Sugar Loaf Rumors
Discussion about Sugar Loaf has been heating up over the last couple of weeks about a mysterious “2nd buyer” – tune in on the Leelanau Blog.
On Absolute Michigan we’ve posted out November Michigan Event Calendar with all kinds of great things to do around the state. We also kick off a month-long focus on ships & shipwrecks today with a feature from SeekingMichigan.org on Gordon Lightfoot’s song about Michigan’s most famous shipwreck.

It’s 43 degrees with light rain and north winds at 10-20 at 5:40 PM at Leelanau Coffee Roasting in Glen Arbor. The record high for a November 4th was 76 degrees set way back in 1896 with a record low of 13 from 1966. Expect north winds gusting up to 35 bringing scattered showers and maybe up to 2″ of snow by tomorrow morning (yes, I used the “s” word!). The weekend outlook calls for a chance of light snow and rain Friday with partly sunny skies and 40s on Saturday and mostly sunny skies and 50s on Sunday!
