News from the Week

The week’s top story was the sad news of the passing of Hanley Denning, founder of Safe Passages, an organization that seeks to help very poor children who live in the dump of Guatemala City. The Safe Passage organization draws a lot of its support from the Leelanau/Traverse City area and folks around here are seeking help to keep the organization going. Other stories included a report that the BayView development in Suttons Bay may include an office district and a listing of projects to be funded by Grand Traverse Band 2% grants.
