I LOVE Ernie's! It's such a great place. When we were kids, my dad would bring our toys that we were finished playing with, and Ernie would fix them up and give them to needy kids. At least I think it was Ernie. What a great guy! Nice to see his place on the pastycam. Good job guys!

Mornin Ernie's Gas Station, when my boys were young I always knew where to look for them, at Ernie's. Wonder how he is, know he has to be well up there in age now. Scott & Darren used to help him work on bikes, pump gas & chat with him. If anyone is going to heaven it will be Ernie with that big heart he always had for kids. He sure made hundreds of kids that didn't have much happy at Christmas with all of the toys he & the Knights of Columbus collected,fixed & bought for them for the Christmas parties at St Cecilia's. My two boys were the two elves that helped Santa at the parties so many years ago. Ernie is one of the old timers still around to remember the good in the world.God Bless him. To that I wish everyone a beautiful day..Sun is comin up beautiful in Gwinn.

Take a moment today to remember the great San Francisco quake that killed so many people one hundred years ago today.Maybe one of our geology experts could give us a little history lesson.

I received this email this morning and feel it
is important.


Attention Bicyclists, Walkers, Runners, etc.(non-motorized user groups)
Tomorrow night Tuesday (April 18th) at 6:30pm the DNR would like your
attendance and input regarding non-motorized use along the M-26
cooridor from the Portage Lake Lift Bridge to Lake Linden. The
discussion will involve whether paved highway shoulders or a
rail trail along that route is the preferred option for that
This feedback is VERY important in determining what is in the best
interest of the non-motorized user groups within our communties. The
DNR and MDOT will be using this input to examine what the course of
action should be for that route. Even if you've already sent a
of support to MDOT for the paved shoulder project, its important to
additional feedback to the paved rail cooridor option.

Sorry for the short notice but please consider attending the meeting
find out more about and show your support for non-motorized
along M-26.

The meeting will be held in the Begg Conference Center at the Hockey
Educational Center attached to the SDC at MTU beginning at 6:30pm.
Please forward this information to any interested parties.

When Gary and I were kids in LLHHS....and driving clunkers..('36 Buick convertible) ....if we had a problem we would ask Ernie and he always managed to have a solution that didn't cost anything and kept us on the road....he is a special, kind man....God Bless Ernie..

Morning All.
-Bobg- Is there a way or someone to contact to e-mail our support of these plans?
Just noticed that the Lift Bridge has been raised allowing boat traffic on the channel. Sure sign of spring in the 'CC'. Enjoy the day everyone.
