Recognition of Blogging

This blog was reported in the The Michigan Municipal League's magazine The Review. The September/October 2009 Edition of The Review, page 28 and 29, contains an article about blogging as a tool of local government, including my comments about my blogging experience. The article includes comments from bloggers in Auburn Hills, Coopersville, East Lansing, Jonesville, Quincy, Roscommon, and Rogers City. All agree that blogging is an excellent tool to communicate about local government, promote a community, and encourage a civil dialogue--all very much needed in our society today. It is also fun!

I hope those of you who read this blog, enjoy it and find it useful. Drop me a line anytime with your comments, suggestions, etc.

Pure Maritime

Rogers City is the Nautical City because we are home to Great Lakes freighters, sailors, and captains going back for generations. To get a better understanding of our pure maritime heritage check out our local museums, lighthouses, ports, and coastal views (like the one above). It is a great time of year to visit the Nautical City.
