MONDAY MORNING IN MARQUETTE & ALGER COUNTY!!

Back on the horse for another week!  The snow seems to have stopped in Marquette County, but Alger County is still getting quite the beating.  A listener called in today to let us know that where they live in Alger County, they had received over 30 inches of snow since last Friday night!

At least all of the snow resulted in a successful UP 200 and Midnight Run for the year.  Thousands came out to see the start of the race in downtown Marquette and Munising was packed for the finish of the Midnight Run!  You can get all of the results by clicking “HERE“.

THE FUTURE OF MARQUETTE LOOKS BRIGHT!!

Thanks to Marquette Mayor John Kivela for stopping by the Sunny Studios  for an update on projects and plans underway, and in the works, in the city.  The mayor also shared some thoughts on the Federal Economic Stimulus plan and getting some of the money to projects slated for Marquette.  Click “HERE” for the mayor’s comments and click “HERE”  to go to the City of Marquette’s website.

Main Street Monday “Classic Cartoon Trivia” was a smash today with dozens of entries.  It made for quite a messy MSM Victory Toss, but it’s worth it.  Congratulations to Don M. of Ishpeming.  He knew the answer was “Mr. Magoo.”

SPECIAL NOTE:  R.I.P. SOCKS the CAT.

The late, great SOCKS the Cat!

The late, great SOCKS the Cat!

Sad news for political cat fans.  SOCKS the Cat passed away from cancer last Friday at the age of 18.  SOCKS was the cat that was a pet of the Clinton family when they occupied the White House.  SOCKS was a very popular cat and we’re sad to see him go!

Until next time,

CHEERS!
