News from the Week

The week’s top story was a report that the former owners of the King’s Challenge golf course (adjacent to Sugar Loaf) are suing the current owners (Sugar Loaf Development LLC) to foreclose. I think I probably speak for a lot of folks around here who wish that there was some kind of governmental agency that would step in and sort this endless mess out. It’s like a game of Monopoly except for the fact that millions of dollars every year are lost from Leelanau’s economy. Other stories included a report on what we’ve been up to when we were supposed to be bringing you Leelanau stuff, a preview of Empire’s Winterfest and an explanation of how you can get updated Leelanau wallpaper/computer backgrounds and photos.
