There's a tick boom in Michigan - Here are 5 things you should know

There's a tick boom in Michigan - Here are 5 things you should know | Traverse City Businesses | Scoop.it
On today's Environment Report, we talked about ticks. Michigan State University entomologist Howard Russell told me that tick season is booming in Michigan
Michelle Hazard's insight:

"In an article for MSU Extension, Russell tells us just where these buggers are showing up:

"...more and more blacklegged ticks are showing up along the west coast of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula from Berrien County north to Grand Traverse County. Deer ticks have also been recently found in Ingham, Ionia and Genesee counties."

This happens to be the school where we send our ten year old boy, (and where my wife teaches).  They do an incredible, and seamless, job of teaching each child the importance of healthy food in their lives. It's always a pleasure to show up at the school and watch as the children prepare food, which came directly from the garden they planted.

Don't Take That Broadband for Granted, Northern Michigan | The Ticker

Don't Take That Broadband for Granted, Northern Michigan | The Ticker | Traverse City Businesses | Scoop.it

Though high-speed Internet is now available to more than 96 percent of Michiganders, some pockets in southern Grand Traverse County remain in the dialup era.

 

The areas that continue to be most affected include near Kingsley, Interlochen and around the lakes between Kingsley and TC.

“Several providers have expanded and fired up new towers just recently,” says Thomas Stephenson, a community tech advisor for Connect Michigan, the state-contracted agency helping expand broadband Internet coverage.

 

Fewer than 60 percent of area residents had high-speed Internet in 2010, according to a Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce study.

 

The organization has not measured since then, but there has been noticeable progress, says Doug DeYoung vice president of business development. He points to gaps in Leelanau, Grand Traverse and other nearby counties that should be addressed.

 

Charter Communications, the long-established Internet provider in the area, is available to more than 1.1 million homes in Michigan. Of those, 97 percent can receive broadband, says company spokesman Bill Morand.

 

“Our goal would be 100 percent,” he tells The Ticker. “We continue to look at these areas (that do not have broadband service) and find ways to bring it.”

 

Companies traditionally have not been able to justify broadband investment in large, rural areas, though current national statistics say 94 percent of all Americans now have access to high-speed Internet.

 

Mi Spot, based in the state’s Thumb area, is one company expanding into the Grand Traverse region, while other players are beefing up their coverage. The company could plug some of the holes in coverage here, but will also compete in areas that have long-established coverage.

Michelle Hazard's insight:

Don't forget that there will always be a segment of rural Michigan who won't be able to run flash and watch streaming content or sometimes even a YouTube video if you make your website totally animated/and or layered you are missing a market.

So how many of you have an 8 year old hero.  I do.  Carter is full of abundantly rich, teeming with life, awesomeness. My family does our best every week to make sure he's building strong leg muscles too. We fill our bucket full of kitchen scraps and leave it on the front porch for him to sling as he rolls through Midtown.
