Posted June 19, Written June 18th- "the long story of the first adventure":June 18, 2014- We left on the 16th (the day between Father’s Day and Krissy’s 39th birthday) from Sturgeon Bay, WI. We went about 40 miles to Ephram where we found anchorage at Ellison Bay. It was a nice cove protected on 3 sides from the weather (thunderstorms). The following day we had a difficult decision to make regarding our direction. We could either go to Washington Island (only 10 miles or so and then to Rock Island to the night and stay at a dock on the unprotected side of the storm, we could continue north along the shoreline of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (which looked like lousy anchorages and no towns for nearly 50 miles or more) or we could head to North Manitou Island which was about 40 miles from Wisconsin off the coast of Michigan (the route we WANTED to take). The issues were that the outlook was for “potentially severe thunderstorms with torrential rain, high winds, and possible hail” which was to occ ...

So if any of you guys remember, about a month ago I posted a picture of my mom and dad with a heart that had shown up on it. Everyone said that was my dad's sign. Well I think he did it again! I was in the Upper Peninsula today and I was struggling to enjoy everything I was seeing because it's the first year without my Dad on Father's Day. I had taken this picture at Tahquamenon Falls. I think a heart is definitely a sign from my dad! It brightened the day a little!

Okay, folks, last photo of the day. A photo of me (on the left) and older brother Rick with Grandma Skyberg at Tahquamenon Falls in the upper peninsula of Michigan. I'd say this was in the late 50s, but I could be wrong. Might have been in the early 60s.

Published 4/15/13 By William Hanson Musician Randy Tessier’s feet are firmly planted on the ground in Ann Arbor. It wasn’t always so. A military brat, Tessier was born in 1950 in Virginia. The family moved to French Morocco in 1954, before settling in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in 1958, when his father was sent to Sawyer Air Force Base. Young Randy attended Marquette High School, “and many others,” he recalls. “I bounced around a lot, and I never graduated high school.” In 1972, he joined a band called the Walrus, and, like many of his peers at the time, got busted for smoking marijuana, and spent some time in the Marquette jail. “I knew I had to get out of Marquette, so I headed south. The dope capital of the Midwest was Ann Arbor, and it was a good place to be for a musician.” Tessier is bass player and backup singer in George Bedard and the Kingpins. He also fronts the band F.U.B.A.R. The Joe Cocker Tribute Band – devised by studio musician and composer Chris Benjey – pays h ...
3 Holy Men & A Bear A Catholic Priest, a Baptist Preacher and a Rabbi all served as Chaplains to the students of Northern Michigan University at Marquette in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop. One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't really all that hard, a real challenge would be to preach to a bear. One thing led to another, and they decided to do an experiment. They would all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to convert it to their religion. Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their experiences. Father Flannery, who had his arm in a sling, was on crutches, and had various bandages on his body and limbs, went first. 'Well,' he said, 'I went into the woods to find me a bear. And when I found him, I began to read to him from the Catechism. Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with me and began to slap me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water, sprinkled him a ...

I've had a good day today. Chandler had a sleepover last night, so waking up to that happy little boy was the best way to start the day. He and I walked over to the little thrift store near my home and found some excellent bargains (including a gallon-sized Ziploc bag filled with Hot Wheels cars for $2.00 - because you can never have enough of those, right?) I cut the grass, did several loads of laundry and have a delicious dinner ready to pop in the oven to share with David Dagenais after Ben's performance in the Upper Peninsula Youth Orchestra at Reynold's Hall on the NMU campus. Tomorrow I will be a slug, reading all day long.

ICE TSUMANI SLAMS THE UPPER PENINSULA (UP) OF MICHIGAN We ran this story on Action News Saturday morning and I wanted to follow it up with a quick post. The amount of ice that is still on Lake Superior is incredible considering today is Cinco de Mayo! The image below shows the combined total ice coverage of the five Great Lakes (19%). Three out of the five lakes still have ice on them and temperatures are still pretty cold up there with snow on the ground in places. As we move through Spring the strengthening currents begin forcing the ice ashore. The problem is the ice continues to pile up. So now instead of a beautiful view of the lake, the residents here have a view of an 8 to 15 foot high wall of ice instead!

Dennis Coffey remains an unsung hero from the halcyon era of Detroit soul, contributing guitar to landmark records issued on the Motown, Ric-Tic, and Revilot labels in addition to cutting a series of efforts under his own name, most notably the cult classic blaxploitation soundtrack Black Belt Jones. Born and raised in the Motor City, Coffey learned to play guitar at age 13 while visiting relatives in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Though a fan of country music throughout adolescence, while attending Detroit's McKenzie High he also immersed himself in rock & roll, jazz, and blues, drawing inspiration from guitarists from Chuck Berry to Scotty Moore to Wes Montgomery. Coffey made his studio debut backing little-known rockabilly cat Vic Gallon on "I'm Gone," issued on the singer's own Gondola label. From there he played in a rockabilly duo with vocalist Durwood Hutto, eventually signing a recording contract with Jackie Wilson's manager, Nat Tarnopol. Through Tarnopol, Coffey met Motown owner Berry Gordy Jr., b ...

Remember workers April 28, 2014 Jake Edwards , The Mining Journal Save | To the Journal editor: As a local union member I'd like to remind everyone in the Upper Peninsula that today is Workers Memorial Day, a day to remember workers who have been killed or injured on the job. It's also a day to renew our commitment to ensure safety at the workplace. Just a few decades ago job safety could not be assumed. Did you know five men perished during the building of the Mackinac Bridge? And although time has faded the memory, we should never forget the 51 men who died on Nov. 3, 1926, at the Barnes-Hecker Mine disaster in Ishpeming Township. There have been others, too, over the years. Miners, steelworkers, building tradesmen, firefighters, police officers, bus drivers, electricians and many more. And while safety conditions on the job have been improved over the years, due in large part to the partnership between industry and organized labor, we know there are hazards inherent to many jobs and we can never simply ...

Subject: Bad Weather Logistics A much deserved "Well done" to Michigan and all those who have come through this epic winter.Hang tough, spring is just around the corner. This text is from a county emergency manager out in the western part of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan after a severe snowstorm ... The Mining Journal, Marquette, MI WEATHER BULLETIN Up here in the Northern part of Michigan we just recovered from a Historic event --- may I even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" --- with a historic blizzard of up to 44 inches of snow and winds to 90 mph that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of communities and cut power to 10's of thousands. FYI: Obama did not come. FEMA did nothing. No one howled for the government. No one blamed the government. No one even uttered an expletive on TV. Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit. Our mayors did not blame Obama or anyone else. Our governor di ...

Now, let me turn to 2014, in terms of some major items there I’d like to share with you.  More and better jobs.  We have a number of great programs going on in entrepreneurship and small business .   In terms of entrepreneurship, we launched a micro loan program with Huntington Bank, that started with a $5 million pilot.  I’m convinced the pilot will be successful, and it will grow to a $20 million program.  That’s fabulous in terms of micro loans and creating new businesses.   Another great program that got created was Goldman Sachs’ [sic] Ten Thousand Small Business Program.  Goldman Sachs made a commitment of $20 million to our urban areas, to really do education, investment, and networking to help entrepreneurs be successful.   There’s a Smart Zone collaborative I want to recognize, in the Upper Peninsula.  This is about how well people can partner.  We have an instance where we have a Smart Zone with Michigan Tech for a number of years.  They just held their tenth year anniversa ...

Michael Schmidt will be tying at Tie One On! Mike Schmidt is known by all of his friends as a fish junky.every spare moment not on the water is occupied by some aspect of fly tying. From the time he could walk he was constantly being taken out on Lake St. Clair, Lake Huron, up Michigan's West coast rivers, and into the Upper Peninsula in search of fish. These days it would not be a surprise to find him throughout the country wherever there are fish ready to be fed. To put it mildly Mike is a man consumed with the sport of fly fishing and, more specifically, advancing fly design through integration of natural and synthetic materials. When not on the water, with friends or clients, he enjoys travelling the country to put on fly tying workshops, give presentations at clubs and demonstrate tying at fly shows. Mike is a commercial tier and owner of Anglers Choice Flies as well as being a guide, freelance photographer, and writer. In addition Mike is a signature tyer for Orvis and on the pro-staffs for Regal Vi ...

LANSING - A proposed tribal casino in downtown Lansing is officially on hold. A federal appeals court today granted a stay to Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, who sued to stop an Upper Peninsula American Indian tribe from opening a casino adjacent to the Lansing Center. The decision from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati halts any legal proceedings in the casino suit as the state prepares to petition the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the case. That also likely prevents the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, which wants to build the $245 million Kewadin Lansing casino, from applying to the federal government to have the land taken into trust for gaming - a required step before a casino can be built. The state plans to ask the high court to stay the case until after it rules in a separate case involving the Upper Peninsula's Bay Mills Indian Community and a casino it opened off its reservation in 2010 in Vanderbilt, which later was shut down. Schuette believes the case raises ...

Want to thank Teresa Johnson for the best vacation ever, it was so awesome that when I left to go back to work this morning I actually went the wrong way, just passed a sign that said, "welcome to Michigan's Upper Peninsula", if I remember right, one of the things I learned in catholic schools was, "thou shalt not leave the U.P. without sledding first". Not sure which one of the ten commandments it is, but no sense in risking falling out of good grace's with the church, sure hope my work understands!

I'm off to Lansing to stand up and argue for our Treaty Rights. The State is planning on selling off over 11,000 acres of State Forest to Graymont Mining Comapny. This land is located in the Ceded Territory, near Rexton in the Eastern Upper Peninsula. The State will retain their mineral rights and collect a percentage based on profits. I maintain that we too have kept our Treaty Rights to hunt, fish, and gather on this property along with other usual privileges of ownership (Usufructuary Rights). Wish me luck in finding the right words to make them hear and for them to have the wisdom to really listen.

Little history lesson... Chicago and the northern most portion of Illinois was at one time owned by and part of Wisconsin... Did you know that? Michigan and Ohio went to war against each other for access to the Great Lake (Michigan) and of course Illinois at the time also had no access to Lake Michigan... So to settle the matter and end the war that could have evolved into a yet another Civil War in America Illinois northern boundary line was moved north to where it is today and those parts of Wisconsin that had stretched south past Chicago were given to the state while the Upper Peninsula was given to Michigan and Ohio along with Illinois gained access to Lake Michigan water access... So let me tell you something about the Usurper in Chief who resides there in Chicago and uses that former portion of Wisconsin to attack the state with... You better watch your *** bub because if Walker gets elected as US President in 2016 I am going to petition him to annex the UP and that former portions of Illinois back ...

I just drove 300 miles f the worst roads I have ever drove on and that is saying something. Saturday morning I started up to the Upper Peninsula in my little Focus. When I got to Roger City the roads were solid ice. They had closed the bridge for 9 hours on Friday because of high winds. Coming back was a little better but not much. I had to make a stop in St. Ignas to pick up some bear meat for our men's wild game dinner Friday. If you think we have snow you need to go up there. It was level with the windows on most houses. We will see how the roads treat me today.

A new candidate for a Michigan seat on the Republican National Committee wants *** "purged" from the GOP and claims homosexuality is a "perversion" created by Satan himself. Mary Helen Sears of Houghton County in the state's Upper Peninsula, elected vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party's 1st District last year, posted a rant in April on the Schoolcraft County GOP website -- preceded by a warning asking readers to "please use your discretion before taking any decisions based on the information in this blog." In the post, Sears claimed that homosexuals prey on children, argued that "Satan uses homosexuality to attack the living space of the Holy Spirit" and advocated that Republicans "as a party should be purging this perversion and send them to a party with a much bigger tent."

“Among the most indelible American novelists of the last hundred years. . . [Harrison] remains at the height of his powers.” —Dwight Garner, The New York Times, on The River Swimmer New York Times best-selling author Jim Harrison is one of America’s most beloved writers, and of all his creations, Brown Dog, a bawdy, reckless, down-on-his-luck Michigan Indian, has earned cult status with readers in the more than two decades since his first appearance. For the first time, this book gathers together all the Brown Dog novellas, including one that has never been published—the ideal introduction (or reintroduction) to Harrison’s irresistible everyman. In these novellas, B.D. rescues the preserved body of an Indian from Lake Superior’s cold waters; overindulges in food, drink, and women while just scraping by in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula; wanders Los Angeles in search of an ersatz Native activist who stole his bearskin; adopts two Native children; and flees the authorities, then returns across t ...
