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.

    This picture brings back memories. The Falling Waters Restruant and Lodge. The boat in this picture was owned by
    Ross Lang. The restruant use to be owned by
    Jack Hollanger (sp) and the lodge was owned by his mother Lauren. Ross Lang and his black lab named Captain went out daily fishing for white fish which he would sell to Bill Carlson. This one picture holds a life time of memories for me.
