News from the Week

Stories from the week included news that Lutz remains interested despite listing of Sugar Loaf, a look at Leland’s Regional basketball run (they won the title last night), a flashback to Leelanau in the 1930s (courtesy the Leelanau Enterprise) with a photo of the old Leland breakwater and a photo of Lake Michigan from Northport Point. Due to a calendrical miscalculation, we also have a feature on last month’s Glen Arbor Winterfest that includes the winners of the perch fishing and chili cookoff.
