Special meeting on Arcadia Harbor reopening

The folks of Arcadia have started the ball rolling towards re-opening Arcadia harbor. This would not only aid the local community, but the county and adjoining counties, and afford a harbor refuge between Onekama and Frankfort. Charles A. Boyer, State Representative and Keith Wilson, Water Commissioner, will be guests Monday night at the Community Dinner which will be held at the Lutheran Parish Hall at 6:30 p.m.

First hunting accident reported

The first shooting accident of the deer season in this county was reported yesterday afternoon when a Copemish youth shot off a toe. The wounded youth was Rudolph Isacson of Copemish. While hunting near M-55 with his brother, his gun was discharged accidentally and the shot severed the second toe on his right foot.

Horse bot campaign

A horse bot campaign will be organized again this year in Manistee County. A group plan of treating will be carried on which will include 20 horses in a community. When the test is returned to the county agent’s office the local veterinarian will do the treating with carbon disulphide. The cost will be 50 cents per head when 20 or more horses are signed up.
