News from the Week

The top story was unquestionably news that Sugar Loaf may have a buyer. The Record-Eagle reported that Brad Lutz, a seasonal Leelanau County resident, is close to finalizing a purchase agreement (we’ll of course be following this story). In other news, we also looked at the BATA renewal that’s on the ballot for Tuesday. Suttons Bay won the Regional Soccer title last week, but fell to Muskegon Western Michigan Christian 5-1 yesterday. Congratulations on a great season, Norsemen!
