Grant Winners from Love Ludington

The Love Ludington mini grant contest has announced its $500 winners.  

The public has voted for "Dog Friendly Projects by Mason County Mutts" and "Rain Activated Art in Downtown Ludington".

Dog friendly projects would put bowls, leash tie-ups, and bag stations in downtown Ludington.

The rain activated art would be applied to sidewalks as fun sayings or phrases that would appear when wet.

In true Ludington fashion, the ideas didn't stop there. Local donors have stepped up with offers to fund $500 to these following projects as well.

Mason County Eastern Outdoor Classroom - Putting a good use to their currently unused courtyard.

Occupy James Street - To beautify James Street for our visitors.

Workshop Wednesdays at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts. - For Kids to explore their artistic talents.

Family of 5 Wild Bears Living Near Ludington

A family of 5 bears has been caught on camera just 20 miles east of downtown Ludington. A trail camera in Fountain has captured images of a mother bear and her 4 cubs stopping to eat at a bait pile in the woods. Be weary of these wild animals as they may be crossing roads or hunting in nearby woodland areas. If you see this family of bears, do your best to keep your distance; mother bears are known to act viciously if they feel their cubs are being threatened. 


Evan Jensen MISSING After Electric Forest Festival

A 21 year-old man is missing after the Electric Forest festival in Rothbury this past weekend. Evan Jensen was last seen around 5:00 A.M. Monday morning but has since disappeared. He and his friends had planned to leave the festival around 6:30 A.M. that morning to drive home to South Dakota. When he didn’t show up, they started to call; when he didn’t answer, they started to worry.

There has been one reported death at the festival each of the last three years.

Jensen’s friends are in possession of his backpacks, clothing, and belongings. They report that Jensen has nothing but the clothes on his back and whatever was in his pockets when he went missing. Police currently consider him a "voluntarily missing adult," so no formal search is underway. 

Evan is 5' 9, weights 125 pounds, has thin blonde hair and green eyes. If you have any information regarding Evan or his location, please contact the State Police at (231) 873-2171. 

UPDATE: Hart Police Troopers have recieved credible intel that Jensen was seen at local businesses Tuesday during the day completely unrestrained. This information furthers the belief that he is missing by his own will.
