West Michigan Lake Rated #2 in America

-

Well this hits home for me, literally. I grew up just outside of Charlevoix and went to school there, and spent countless hours on this lake and was next to it nearly everyday in my childhood.

A USA today poll was done, and lake Charlevoix came up at #2. It is a beautiful lake, no question. I was just at it a few weeks ago. Nice as ever. Only Lake Tahoe (Granted, is MUCH bigger) beat out our Lake.  Fine be me.  Keep Tahoe - I'll take a Northern Michigan lake any day!

Happy Birthday Murdicks Fudge

Well look here! Anyone from Michigan knows northern Michigan and fudge. This one is special for me, because from the age of 14-17, I worked at Murdicks Fudge in Petoskey!

There are many different companies selling fudge but it all started with Murdick's Candy Kitchen in 1887 in Mackinac and free fudge today in Mackinac and St. Ignace.

Should Grand Rapids Get a Casino? [POLL]

Well, that's the question.  Battle Creek has one - Mt Pleasant has one - Detroit has 3 - and get ready to add Lansing to the list of bigger cities that will have one... although the governor and attorney general are opposed to it. I don't understand it. Detroit already has 3 - why should Lansing be any different?  For that matter, we have Gun lake 20 minutes away. So I say, why not Grand Rapids? Imagine a casino on the southside of downtown...

Michigan Construction Out of Hand

It's that time of year - Construction season in Michigan.  Normally, we all expect it this time of year, but with the early Spring, the season has already gotten into full swing.

Have you been downtown on Fulton St. Between Monroe and Division? I have never seen so many orange barrels piled into one spot. At night you better know where you are going, otherwise get ready to mow 'em down.
