To the editor:
In regards to David Hunter’s letter supporting Patricia Soutas-Little; I agree her record stands for itself.
She voted two times not to lower taxes, once to increase them. She was found guilty of violating the Open Meetings Act.
“If an error was made, we all learned from it.”
– Empire Village trustee Sue Carpenter in response to a claim that the Council had violated the Open Meetings Act by limiting public comment.
I’ve been seeing a lot in the national news over the past couple of years about pollsters using “educational attainment” as one of the key predictors of how people stand on certain political issues and how they may vote.
While we are cautious about supporting property tax requests for longer than three or four years, the millage before voters in the Glen Lake Community Schools district on Nov. 6 is demanded by the state Constitution. So we support the 15.0696 property tax renewal for non-homestead properties.
About one month ago we wrote that the Suttons Bay- Bingham Fire and Rescue Authority millage comes with an asterisk.
The asterisk remains, but we still recommend supporting the request. It’s needed for the Fire and Rescue Department to continue providing the level of service residents need and expect.
Organizations wishing to have their public events listed in this calendar can email Amy Hubbell at email@example.com or call The Enterprise, 256-9827, before 5 p.m. Friday.

Sail on a scary ship
Michigan law requires local governments to inform their citizenry through public notices published in newspapers of record for their communities. These notices provide residents with an easy path for following the work of their elected officials. Public notices for Leelanau County can also be accessed online at Leelanaunews.com.
The family of Linda Morton would like to Thank everyone for your prayers, kind words and support during this difficult time. A special Thank you to Lake Leelanau EMS, Martinson’s Funeral Home and Staff at St. Mary Catholic Church.

Services were held yesterday at Beeler-Gores Funeral Home in Middleville for Daniel Ray Bush of Cedar who died Oct. 17.
He was 71.
Daniel was born Feb. 15, 1947 in Hastings, the son of John Coolidge and Della Mae (Cutrer) Bush. A man of many talents, after high school, Daniel served his country in the Air Force from 1967 to 1971.
Local high school students are encouraged to apply for the Northwestern Michigan Chapter of Military Officers (MOAA) 2018 Scholarship Program.
A PROJECT is already underway for residents of Sunset Shores, where yesterday Mary Taylor and “Saanyu” were taking a walk. DTE is installing underground gas along the privately owned road. Taylor’s husband, Pete, has been instrumental in organizing lot owners for a community sewer project that they will eventually own.
While records set in 2017 for the number of homes sold and total value look like they’ll stand, one mark is in danger of falling.
That’s the median price for home sales, which bumped above $300,000 for the first three quarters of 2018.
The Leelanau Enterprise, named Newspaper of the Year last spring by the Michigan Press Association, also received top awards this month in the National Newsaper Association’s Better Newspaper and Adverising Contest.
The Enterprise placed fourth in “general excellence.” among 117 newspapers in 33 states.
Good news about several affordable “workforce housing” projects in Leelanau County reported last week was bolstered this week by even more good news.
Leelanau County has been awarded $103,672 from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority for a housing rehabilitation program.
Much of Leelanau’s autumn agriculture is hanging by a vine. This time of year, many area growers are focused on picking vine-based crops like pumpkins, winter squash and, of course, grapes.
Whether wine connoisseurs prefer sipping cabernet or chardonnay, the harvesting process is the same — it’s tricky.
Just ask Bel Lago Winery vineyard manager Tomas Moreno.
Major upgrades to the Elmwood Township Marina will likely get underway in the spring with the infusion of nearly $1 million in state grant funding to help pay for an estimated $2 million project.
