With the combined effect of increased ice formation between the Grand Isle, VT-Crown Point, NY, ferry crossings, as well as increased traffic at both the Northern and Southern crossings, we will be closing the Charlotte, VT, to Essex, NY, ferry crossing, until ice conditions permit in the spring. The new, free, 24-hour crossing from Chimney Point, VT, to Crown Point, NY, began on Monday. It will run 24 hours a day, every day.Lake Champlain Transportation said that relocating the vessels at this time allows it to restore the Grand Isle crossing back to its normal operating schedule, and ensures that there is duplication of service at Crown Point during heavy ice conditions.The last day of service at the Charlotte, VT –Essex, NY, crossing is Wednesday evening, with the last departure from Vermont at 5 pm and from Essex, NY at 5:30 pm.Source: Lake Champlain Transportation. 2.2.2010
AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena — For most Michiganders, they know the drill when it comes to voting in a primary election.For new voters and voters moving from a different state, it might not be as crystal clear. On the partisan part of the ballot, a citizen will see a Democratic candidate column, a Republican candidate column, and a Libertarian candidate column. A voter cannot vote in different parties. They need to stay in their lane.“When we say stay in your lane, we mean from the governor choice on down to your county commissioner, that all has to be in the same party,” said Dottie Haase, President of the League of Women Voters in Alpena County.The importance of voting in the party a voter’s views aligns with is so the vote will not be declared invalid. For example, voting for a Republican governor candidate and a Democratic state representative would throw away the vote. Voters can vote on non-partisan races like candidates running for a judge. These races are located in a separate column, under no party affiliation. Ballot issues are separate as well and don’t fall under a specific party. Michigan has a closed primary. Haase sees this primary having the potential to attract more voters ahead of November.“More women are running than ever before and we’re excited about that so it’ll just be interesting to see if we have a bigger turnout,” said Haase. “I’m hoping Alpena County has a huge turnout, more than normal.”To learn more about your local elections and what will be on your ballot on August 7, visit the Secretary of State website to navigate to your area (https://www.michigan.gov/sos/).For more on the League of Women Voters of Alpena County, visit the website (http://www.lwvalpenacounty.org/index.html).AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious What’s Trending for July 17Next What’s Trending for July 18
