News from the Week

The week began with Valentines Day and a card showing the fashions of 1912. In addition to posts on the upcoming Northport Winter Carnival and the musical group Barefoot Tango, we started our post on the 2008 boys and girls basketball tournaments which we’ll keep updating as long as Leelanau teams are in the chase. We also had a feature on the February 20th eclipse and Ed Hahnenberg’s Lake Leelanau observatory. Although we didn’t get clear skies up here for the eclipse, but other parts of Michigan had a great view – check out photos of the eclipse at Michigan in Pictures!
