The Edmund Fitzgerald

  #

1975 - A powerful storm brought high winds across Lower Michigan, toppling trees and power lines. A tornado was spun up by the storm, damaging mobile homes and a barn in Allegan County. 
 
The Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior during the storm, with a crew of 29 men. There were no survivors.

The ore carrier left Superior, Wisconsin on November 9 loaded with 26,116 tons of taconite pellets. The cargo was to be delivered to Detroit, but the ship ran into winds of at least 60 mph and high waves and foundered at about 730 pm north of Whitefish Point.  more...

MUSKEGON — Hank Carpenter rode his personal watercraft across Lake Michigan last weekend, all in the name of adventure and generating awareness for a disease.

Little did he know when he departed Muskegon on Friday morning that the loosely thrown-together stunt would result in more than 19 hours on the lake on a 9-foot-long Sea Doo. In the end, he completed the feat, traversing the 160-plus miles to Milwaukee and back, and returned safely home Saturday night.  more...

Where is your favorite spot in Michigan for the fall colors?

  #

It’s that time of the year again when Michigan’s landscape explodes in a beautiful palette of color. My two-year-old daughter and I have already started collecting some of the wonderfully hued leaves from the silver maples in our back yard.

Tall Ship Manitou – Respite from Our Hectic Life

  #

By: Jerry Kunnath
Previously published in the Michigan Streamside Journal


Manitou – A Balance between Nature/Life – A Spirit

We left the dock mid-evening, with a brisk breeze blowing from the south-east as it laid its amphoral hand onto the waters of the bay. The wind rippled the water in sun sparkled crystalline capped waves, making a light gurgling splash as it kissed past the sleek hull of the schooner. The crew members, followed their Captains orders, which he shouted masterfully from his place at the cherry wood spooked helm. They unfurled the sails from their resting spot on the jibs hanging off of the two giant spruce masts. Two crews of ‘volunteer’ crew members, those of us that wanted to participate, started to pull lines together in a measured cadence of ‘Heave To’ set by the crew, and watched in land-lubber amazement as the sail rings rose on the masts and the wind flowed into the rising massive white sails, emitting an audible thump as they filled. more
