The Open Meetings Act (OMA) may have been violated by the Empire Village president when he “gaveled down” an audience member during public comment at a meeting earlier this month.
So says village resident Meg Walton who raised the question Tuesday night to the Empire Village Council.
About 300 students from Leelanau County’s four public schools, plus two private schools, appeared in the Leland Public School gymnasium for the school’s 17th biennial Political Rally and Mock Election.
Suttons Bay is having a party and giving back to the community at the same time.

Under its winter wrapping and safely tucked into its berth at Discovery Pier, the historic sailing vessel Madeline last week became the “haunted schooner” -- a trick-or-treat destination for scores of young Halloween revelers.
A group that studied the feasibility of a wastewater treatment system was thanked last week by the Empire Village Council.
But there is no support to pursue a municipal sewer system at this time.
As cooler temps return to Leelanau County, exercising outdoors can be less appealing to some.
One solution to the post-summer slow-down is creating a home gym. A basement, garage or even a spare room with some basic equipment can help build a solid foundation for personal fitness.

A prestigious award was given to Black Star Farms.
At the 19th annual Canberra International Riesling Challenge on Friday, Oct. 19, the award for the Best Wine of 2018 Challenge was given to the Black Star Farms 2017 Arcturos Dry Riesling. This is only the second time in CIRC’s 19-year history that an American wine has come out on top.
Sometimes history is just too important to forget. That’s certainly the driving force behind one Leelanau County resident’s decision to purchase a 139 year-old building.
Like finding a treasure stored in a dusty attic, Glen Arbor resident Turner Booth sees the grist mill building and the milling equipment housed inside as things worth saving.
Local fourth graders will have a snowshoe adventure at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore thanks to a grant from the National Park Foundation (NPF).
The Lakeshore has been selected to receive a 2018-2019 field trip grant which will provide a snowshoeing adventure for free and learn about winter ecology, snow science and other handson experiences.
Archery season has shown a small number of deer around the hunting areas in Leelanau County.
