LEELANAU COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) — In a continued effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 across Michigan, the Department of Natural Resources and local leaders are now shutting down some boat launches in Leelanau County.
The Leelanau County Sheriff’s Office received notification Thursday, April 2, 2020, that the DNR is closing three boat launches for public use effective April 3.
How ’bout them apples. Who are the so-called “local leaders” that don’t bend knee to The State? Name one that has ever told the DNR to go take a flying one, I’ll wait.
These closures will remain in effect until further notice.
Notice from whom? Sure as hell won’t be from a “local leader.”
The DNR said they are monitoring other popular fishing spots around northern Michigan to make sure people are maintaining a safe distance from one another.
The KDHE is using a GPS program that tracks people’s locations through their cell phones. From the data, the state can tell that a lot of Kansans are not following social-distancing guidelines.
The program the state is using gave Kansas a grade of B Monday but has now downgraded the state to a C. Dr. Norman said some Kansas counties are getting an F grade because of how many people are not observing the stay-at-home order.
The order was swiftly opposed by Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, who argued the May elections should be delayed instead. He cautioned against “decisions made in haste” and asked Whitmer to “reconsider this misstep.”
“Our Governor has authorized the Secretary of State to send absentee ballots to individuals who apply to register to vote without first ensuring proper verification,” Shirkey said. “This unilateral change to how we secure our elections has the potential to invite fraud and security concerns that may last well beyond the circumstances of today.”
Thank you, Mr. President! Americans want to get back to work. This is what real leadership looks like, not like imposing a knee-jerk economic shutdown from Gov. Gretchen “Half” Whitmer using the Democrats playbook to sink our economy by putting Michiganians out of work and shuttering business that bureaucrats in Lansing deem as ‘non-essential.’
“Last week, the Trump administration extended the federal income tax deadline to July 15.”
So basically, greasy forehead Gretchen got herself elected as governor and all she has accomplished for Michiganians is she earned herself a nickname.
I love Michigan, one of the reasons we are doing such a GREAT job for them during this horrible Pandemic. Yet your Governor, Gretchen “Half” Whitmer is way in over her head, she doesn’t have a clue. Likes blaming everyone for her own ineptitude! #MAGA
