News from the Week
The week’s top story was news that WiMAX Internet Service coming to Leelanau & Traverse City area. WiMAX has a non-line-of-sight range up to 30 miles, is considered especially effective in rural, hilly areas and operates at speeds 100 times faster than a dial-up modem. We also posted results, photos & video for the 2006 Tour de Leelanau bike race (great video from Chris Burda of the start added yesterday!).
