YIKES!!  IT’S THE END OF JULY ALREADY!!!  WHERE THE HECK IS SUMMER??

So here it is, the end of July in Marquette County.  Tomorrow is August and it feels like it’s still spring around here.  What a wild season.  Oh well, I guess it’s part and parcel of living here in the glorious U.P.!  And really, I guess it could be a lot worse, so I best zip my lip and take it as it comes!

CASH FOR CLUNKERS!!  TO THE EXTREME!!

"YEAH, UH...JUST DROP 'EM OUT BACK DERE, EH?"

"YEAH, UH...JUST DROP 'EM OUT BACK DERE, EH?"

Check out this uniquely ostentatious display from a Petoskey Chevy dealer.  Our own Major Discount, Todd Noordyk, took this picture yesterday while traveling though the area.  I have to wonder if this is what they meant when they said, “Just drop off your clunkers here!”  If that’s a drop off, they’ve got some strong people in Petoskey!  HA!  I’d hate to see what they do with these vehicles after they get to the dump.

TALKING FARMER’S MARKETS AND MORE IN DOWNTOWN NEGAUNEE.

THE EVER MELLOW MARKET MASTER BILL BRAZIER.

THE EVER MELLOW MARKET MASTER BILL BRAZIER.

Thanks to our old friend Bill Brazier for stopping by this morning to tell us about the new farmer’s market and the flea markets being held in downtown Negaunee.  He discussed the effort and how the city is trying to increase interest and activities in the downtown area with events such as these and more.  For more details and how you can take part, click on Bill’s interview “HERE.”

HEY, IT IS THE WEEKEND!

Get out and enjoy it, even if it’s going to be a little wet occasionally.  The light rain will just keep the dust down, right?  Catch you all back here on the information superhighway next time!
