News from the Week

This week saw the return of Sugar Loaf to the news with a report that Leelanau County is seeking stuimulus money to facilitate the resort’s redevelopment (Jason has nothing on the Loaf!). Other stories from the week included Gen Netxt, a new group for young professionals in Leelanau County (is it 4 U?), unfavorable reactions at plans to combine MSU Extension & Hort Research Station budgets and then slash them (agriculture is a bright spot, so the state of Michigan will try and kill innovation), a photo of the Glen Haven Canning Co., and the 2009 Boys & Girls Basketball District Tournaments (boys start next week).

    A little Leelanau tie-in with the Obama administration is Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, who is expected to be confirmed as secretary of health and human services.

    The Governor is said to have a “wonkish understanding of health policy” and is the daughter of former Ohio governor, John Gilligan. The family has had a summer home in Leelanau for years and are darn nice folks.

    Congratulations to Kathleen & the Gilligan family.
