n To the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy which, with a $15,000 Coastal Zone Management grant from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and a matching gift from the Huckle Family Foundation, is working to chart a route along the Chain of Lakes leading to East Grand Traverse Bay. The trail is designed for small, non-motorized boats including kayaks and canoes.

n To the Michigan Legislature for approving a bill that will give bicyclists another way to signal a right turn.

n To the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy for hosting a “Coastal Shipwreck Story & Hike” over the weekend.
