Blade: Surf Pic – Luna Pier
17 April 2011, 2:01 pm

The heavy winds we continue to experience caused some flooding problems along Monroe’s Lake Erie shoreline.  That’s no good. However, the winds were a boon for those who need wind and waves to practice their sports.  Among these are the intrepid group of wind surfers who ply the local waters.  The Toledo Blade published a [...]

Hike Report: Davis Lake Overlook: Oakland County Press
17 April 2011, 9:08 pm

View Larger Map  Through a lifetime of hiking, I have come to realize that there are probably more hiking opportunities in SE Michigan per square mile than any area of the state.  Millions of people live here, so there has been enough tax base to purchase and maintain parks.  These millions have wielded enough political power through [...]
