News from the Week
The top story for the week was news that Omena resident Brad Lutz has signed an option to purchase Sugar Loaf Resort from Kate Wickstrom. We celebrated by taking a picture of the Loaf. There was also a bit on the Roy Taghon memorial and news that Traverse City has been named one of top US fishing towns. The fish were understandably less than overjoyed at the news.
