A recent visit of the U.S. Navy’s hospital ship USNS Comfort to Peru allowed two people with strong Leelanau County ties to meet for the first time.
Navy Lt. Commander Michael Bushey, RN, is serving as a medical officer aboard Comfort. He is the son of Betty and Dennis Bushey of Elmwood Township.
One of the best reasons to shop locally, Traffic. It is really nuts out there, and most of them are Christmas shopping.
I always enjoy reading the “Looking Back…” column in the Leelanau Enterprise. Now that I’m in my second decade of doing the Omena News, I wondered if it might be fun to look back at Omena. I wish I had the files from the years when Debby’s uncle Preston (Perc) Smith did the column in the 1980s.
The Little Garden Club is now seeking letters of application from nonprofit organizations seeking financial assistance with special gardening and environmental projects.
Since 1995, the Leelanau Countybased club has issued more than 100 grants, funded in recent years by the club’s biennial garden tours.
A total of 157 students grades 6-12 are listed on the honor roll for the first quarter marking period at Suttons Bay Midle and High School.
Following a public hearing at a special meeting last week, the Suttons Bay Village Council adopted an ordinance to “opt out” of allowing any “Marihuana Related Establishments and Facilities” in the village anytime soon.
A 48-unit apartment complex designed as affordable “workforce housing” just south of the Village of Suttons Bay was the subject of a public hearing last week in which neighbors and members of the Suttons Bay Township Planning Commission expressed some concerns about the project.

Larry and Jan Esch of Lake Leelanau and Mount Dora, Fla. will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary tomorrow.
Theodore “Larry” and the former Janis Elaine Bronner exchanged vows on Dec. 14, 1968, at Peace Lutheran Church in Saginaw, the Rev. Lorenz F. Weber officiated.
Traditions old and young don’t die easily in Leland.
That goes for both the Riverside Inn and the 10-year-old Santa Brunch set for Sunday that has quickly became a family favorite.
Kate and Barb Vilter represent the seventh family to own and run the Riverside Inn, whose operation was once previously dramatically changed by fire.
Kate Vilter can be prone to impatience, a common— and at times, useful — trait among successful restauranteurs.
So dealing with paperwork, contractors and insurance reps while fire-damaged Riverside Inn sets idle has been … trying.
ST. MARY PRESCHOOL recently began a new theme; The Sights and Sounds of Winter. They began the theme by focusing on instruments and Christmas Carols and asked parents if any of them played an instrument. Jean LaCross, grandmother to Oliver LaCross, invited her neighbor Joe Bottenhorn to play for the preschool class.
Hundreds of people visited the Veterans of Foreign Wars hall in Lake Leelanau on Saturday for the 7th annual Provement Arts and Crafts Show.
The show featured artwork and handmade crafts from 42 vendors and two non-profit organizations.
Although the General Election was held last month, the Northport Village Council will need to select another member.
The two events are related.
Just-seated village president Steve Wetherbee vacated the second two years on his four-year term on the Village Council. While presiding last Thursday over his first meeting, Wetherbee presented his plan for filling the empty seat.
MICHIGAN GOVERNOR-elect Gretchen Whitmer, second from left, met Friday in Lansing with leaders of 11 of the 12 United Tribes of Michigan including representatives from the Leelanau County-based Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians.
Northport Village still has a harbor master without a contract.
The Village Council last Thursday did not approve a contract negotiated by its administrative coordinator with Susan Holtz, the wife of former harbor master Mark Holtz. He died just as the 2018 boating season was getting underway.
Members of the Class of 2021 at Leland Public School donned festive attire and helped Santa Claus make Christmas bright for scores of younger kids and their families.

Kromkowski is replacing Judge Larry J. Nelson. A retirement party was held for Judge Nelson on Friday at the Government Center.
