Volunteer at the Room at the Inn in Marquette

Marquette, MIJuly 4, 2016 — The street was packed with people who joined in the Fourth of July parade celebration. The groups were bright, friendly and some even showed off a lot of exciting sounds! This year, Sunny.fm, 103FXD and WRUP were well represented for Great Lakes Radio. Todd Noordyk, our leader here at Great Lakes Radio Inc., was heading up our vehicles with Adam Carpenter from the Outdoor Show. Adam was driving a stylish Kawasaki Mule from Zambon’s in Marquette with  Miss Pre-Teen Great Lakes State and Miss Pre-Teen Upper Midwest in a boat behind excitedly passing out candy with smiles and waves.

Eric Tasson was manning the 103 FXD truck with Lane Dawson as his co-pilot. Premium Pole Buildings and Storage Sheds was behind them hauling our newest giveaway prize, the Steamin’ Summer Sauna. Bill Tibor was next in the WRUP van with Mike and Walt from the Sunny Morning Show saving the day and completing our line-up in the Sunny.fm van with flashing lights.

There was a all-around great showing of floats and groups on this warm and wonderful Independence Day. The Marquette High School Class of 1971 float especially eye-catching with their VW Van structure and ’70s throwback decorations. Another parade favorite was the veteran and military groups who were well represented and respected throughout the parade.

It’s a wonderful sunny day for celebrating  The United States of America’s independence. Let us know how you celebrated your holiday or any of your favorite attractions from the parade!

St. Ignace/Sault Ste. Marie/Brimley, MI — The Forest Service is notifying local media of possible prescribed burning opportunities in the near future. Current weather forecasts suggest suitable burning weather may occur in the next several days. Prescribed burning is very weather dependent but may occur Saturday, June 18. If conditions are not right, the burns will be postponed until more favorable conditions arise.

The Forest Service’s St. Ignace/Sault Ste. Marie Ranger District is preparing for the South Brimley Grade prescribed burn. The burn would be about 5 miles west of Brimley and about 1 mile north of M-28. A map of this potential prescribed burn is available online. During active burning in the Brimley area, smoke may be visible from Brimley, Highway M-28 west of Brimley, and other points throughout Chippewa County. Due to safety concerns, the fire will only be executed in wind conditions that minimize the likelihood of reduced visibility due to smoke on Highway M-28. Though unlikely, smoke may settle in some areas in the evening hours. If you have health problems that may be aggravated by smoke production, please contact Brenda Dale, Zone Fire Management Officer, at (906) 643-7900 x127, and you will be personally notified prior to any burning activities.

The burn will maintain the 237-acres of wildlife opening to increase blueberry production under red pine, maintaining biological diversity on the Hiawatha National Forest, and in the Upper Peninsula.

This project will improve the overall health and vigor of vegetation and wildlife habitat on the Forest. Openings also serve as natural firebreaks by keeping large accumulations of hazardous fuels away from private homes and property boundaries. Such openings can burn frequently, but are consistent in only carrying or sustaining low intensity wildfires. Firebreak areas help to minimize the spread of larger, high intensity/catastrophic fires. They also provide safe opportunities for wildland fire-fighters to suppress large fires and/or minimize their impact to surrounding resources. This safety aspect is critical when dealing with fires that occur in areas with wildland-urban interfaces that inherently have higher risks and resource values at stake. Openings also help to mitigate those risks and minimize the loss to resource values (i.e. timber products, recreation opportunities, wildlife habitat, private property, and utilities).

For more information about the Hiawatha National Forest’s 2016 prescribed burn plans, visit the Forest’s News & Events page or contact the Zone Fire Management Officer.

MUNISING, MI – Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore’s 2016 “Adopt-a-Trail, Adopt-a-Campsite and Adopt-a-Beach” orientation and training session will be held Saturday, May 28 from 9 am to 10 am.  It will be held at Miners Castle, located approximately 6.5 miles east of Munising on H-58, then north on Miners Castle Road 5 miles.

Under this program, interested individuals or groups can adopt a section of trail, backcountry campsite or beach segment. Adopt-a-Trail, Adopt-a-Campsite and Adopt-a-Beach volunteers will be asked to visit their section of trail, campsite or beach once a month from May through October for light maintenance duties including picking up litter, light brushing, cleaning out water bars, and breaking up illegal fire rings. The park will provide a VIP uniform vest and ball cap, basic tools, gloves, and written guidelines on the work to be performed.

With over 100 miles of trail and 14 designated backcountry campsites, we are so grateful to the citizen-stewards that participated in this program last year, and encourage even more local citizens to become partners with us in taking care of this very special place.

The park’s trail network has 37 sections that are available for “adoption”.  Adoptable sections range from trails that are easily accessible and less than a tenth of a mile to a section of the North Country Trail that is 5.3 miles long.  There is something for every ability and level of interest.

This will be the tenth year for this program and it has been very successful. We have a lot of very dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers who love to hike and are happy to do some work along the way, and we hope they will be back with us this year. Most of all we want people to have fun and enjoy their time spent in the park. This is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and to be a part of conserving America’s first national lakeshore.

If you are interested in participating in the program, but can’t attend the 5/28 meeting , please call (or email) Ron Jones or Susan Reece at 906-387-2607 ext. 208

Lansing, MichiganJanuary 19th, 2016 – All eyes in Michigan were on Governor Rick Snyder tonight. Governor Snyder delivered his Annual State of the State address on the stations of Great Lakes Radio in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
