One of the groups I’m involved with up here is the Wacky Weeders.
We are a group of volunteers who meet Wednesday mornings and help out the Public Works Department by maintaining plantings/gardens in the city parks, the Presque Isle Historical Museum and the 40 Mile Point Lighthouse. We are guided by Deb Stiler a local artist who sends out an email every week so we know what we will be working on.
We meet at 8:30AM and by about 10:00 we finish up our gardening and all go off and have breakfast at Karstens, a wonderful dinner on the Third Street. (During the winter, the Wacky Weeder walks on Wednesday weather permitting and then go and have breakfast.)
Today we prepped the soil in the wildflower garden which I think is technically part of North Shore Park. There are nine parks in this town of 3,000 people. Amazing.
The Wacky Weeders are a fun group. helps keep Rogers City the cleanest neatest city I have ever seen!
Then at noon I went to the lunch meeting of the Zonta chapter. Our snowbird members are starting to come back north so we had a good turnout.
This just in from Chicago. The City Council did approve a revised version of the Infrastructure Trust ordinance. Though there was strong dissent again.
We lost a few of the no votes from the Finance Committee, Aldermen Cochran, Dowell and Lane. But we picked up a few others. So the “Magnificent Seven” who voted no were: Bob Fioretti (2nd); Leslie Hairston (5th); Toni Foulkes (15th); Ricardo Munoz (22nd); Scott Waguespack (32nd); Brendan Reilly (42nd) and John Arena (45th).
So that means, at some point TEN Aldermen said no to the mayor on this issue.
