News from the Week

The top story (in my opinion) was the re-emergence of spring peepers and an article we did over at Absolute Michigan all about these harbingers of spring. Other stories from the week included the posting of preliminary input from from the Leelanau Tourism Initiative listening sessions, the latest on Leelanau resident and Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Weaver’s struggle with some fellow justices on the court, how much of a late-year budget bite area schools would face under the latest Senate proposal and a cool old photo of the Merc and Leland’s Main Street from years ago.

The Week’s Weather

The weather was quite nice: lots of sun, most of the rain at night and temps in the 60s and 50s. It looks like a classic case of “In like a lion, out like a lamb.”
