News from the Week

Most of the news was again fall event listings, but there was a detailed report on the 2007 Tour de Leelanau that featured photos, results, video and a biker’s account of the race. In less than happy news, we also took a look at metallic sulfide mining, a threat to Michigan’s rivers and Great Lakes.


Fall color is coming on fast – more and more yellows and reds (still a lot of green though). The weather was up and down and highlighted by an amazing weekend and a record-hot day.
