|Bench trial continues between Mather Inn, Cognition BrewingABC 10 / 13 d. 15 h. 42 min. ago more|
MARQUETTE — After nearly a month off, the bench trial resumed Tuesday morning between the Mather Inn and Cognition Brewing of Ishpeming. Both sides are suing each other over discrepancies in money that dates back over two years. Cognition rents a space that Mather Inn owns. Brewery owner Jay Clancey took the stand Tuesday morning. He testified in late January he arraigned a meeting with Mather owner Robin Baird to exchange checks the two owed each other. Clancey said despite several attempts to meet up, the meeting never happened. Then on February first, Cognition discovered the entry way to the brewery was filled with a large pile of snow, locking them out. “I was pretty confused. I didn’t know what was happening and what my rights were,” said Clancey. “I expressed regret with how the whole situation turned out with what had just happened. I remember saying something to the effect of with all of this going on, I had no idea what the future of Cognition was going to be.” Clancey regained entry into the brewery 10 days later thanks to a court injunction. Mather Inn claims Cognition owes them money for late rent payments. Clancey denied that on the witness stand, saying Mather Inn owed him money for work that was done to the facility by his electrical company and United Contractors. The trial is expected to continue tomorrow.The post Bench trial continues between Mather Inn, Cognition Brewing appeared first on ABC 10/CW 5.

|Miners open football practice with redemption on their mindsABC 10 / 14 d. 13 h. 3 min. ago more|
NEGEAUNEE — For the Miners football team, last year’s loss in the district finals game against Calumet is weighing heavy on the minds of the players at the first official day of practice. “It was heart–breaking for me. I still think about it to this day,” fullback Jake Hill said. “I just think about all our seniors last year and how heart–breaking it was to lose that game,” said wide receiver Jacob Ennett. “I’ve always been the type of guy that you are only as good as your next game. It’s different team, different year. What’s in the past is in the past and what we have to do right now is do everything we can in our power to be ready for that first game,” head coach Paul Jacobson said. The Miners are coming off their first undefeated regular season since 2004 and much of the credit goes to a stellar senior class that left a lasting impression on this year’s team. “They taught me a lot because I was one of the only juniors that played last year, so I feel pretty good going into my senior year,” Ennett said. “We got to be ourselves. We had lots of senior talent last year. We need a lot of people to replace that senior talent. We got to go out every game like we did last year with no fear and full confidence that we were going to win,” said Hill. The Mid–Peninsula Conference is wide open this season and Negaunee needs this new senior class to step up in a big way for the team to have a chance at a second–straight MPC title. “It’s difficult. You don’t replace a Shane Ring, Neal Violetta, Brock Aho, Jacob Paquette or Michael Pizziola. It’s tough. You don’t do that. But what you have to do is prepare yourself. The new kids in town, the new senior leadership, the new juniors that are going to take their place. They have to try to live up to that tradition that’s been established,” said Jacobson. And with the first day of practice all wrapped up, the team’s confidence is steadily rising. “It feels great. I have been waiting for this day since the last football season ended. I’ve been ready to just get back to work,” said Ennett. “The hardest thing to get into is just the pace. We’re trying to get in as many plays as possible. We’re trying to get a play in every ten seconds. It’s fast paced. Everyone is running around and flying around. There’s coaching in every single direction. It’s chaotic,” Hill said. “They have to just come to work just like last year’s team. They can’t afford to take a step back in a practice. They have to continue to get better and keep pushing each other every practice,” said Jacobson. The Miners will open their season on the road on August 25th against Boyne City.The post Miners open football practice with redemption on their minds appeared first on ABC 10/CW 5.
|Senator Peters travels through UP by motorcycle, discusses jobs and economyABC 10 / 14 d. 13 h. 59 min. ago more|
CHATHAM — U.S. Senator Gary Peters (D-MI) is making his way across the U.P. on his motorcycle to discuss his efforts to grow the state’s economy and create local jobs. Senator Peters was in Manistique and Chatham Monday to talk about Michigan’s agricultural and manufacturing industries in regards to the state’s economy. While in Chatham, the senator visited the Michigan State University’s Upper Peninsula Research and Extension Center to observe its work with small farming operations. With the U.S. Senate soon taking up a farming bill that will set policy for farmers all across the country, Senator Peters said he wanted to make sure the U.P. voice was heard. “I think the most important thing about the farm bill is to understand that agriculture is very diverse,” said Senator Peters. “In the past, a lot of farm bills have been focused on big crops like wheat and corn but we area a state of specialty crops. Michigan has the most diverse agriculture second only to California and we need to have a farm bill that works for farmers regardless of their crop they produce.” In Manistique, Senator Peters visited U.P. Paper Company and chatted about the manufacturing side of things up here as well. His U.P. motorcycle tour will wrap up at the end of next week, adding that if he has to get from point A to point B, it might as well be by motorcycle.The post Senator Peters travels through UP by motorcycle, discusses jobs and economy appeared first on ABC 10/CW 5.

|Senator Stabenow announces expansion to Double Up Food BucksABC 10 / 14 d. 14 h. 34 min. ago more|
LANSING–On Monday, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, & Forestry, announced more than $3.5 million in new federal funding to expand the successful Double Up Food Bucks program in Michigan. The funds come from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive grant program, which Stabenow authored in the 2014 Farm Bill. The grant will be matched by private funding, totaling to $7 million in new investments. “The Double Up Food Bucks initiative has been a success for both farmers and families,” said Stabenow. “In the 2014 Farm Bill, I fought to include innovative opportunities like this to improve access to healthy, local food in communities and create new ways for Michigan farmers to sell their products locally.” Double Up Food Bucks makes it easier for low-income families in Michigan to eat healthy by doubling the value of food assistance dollars spent on fresh, regionally grown produce. This has helped families stretch their food budget while supporting Michigan farmers and rural communities. “Support for produce incentives has energized the field with direct benefits for low-income families and American farmers,” said Dr. Oran Hesterman, President and CEO of Fair Food Network. “Senator Stabenow has been a steadfast champion of this work, which today is garnering support from across the political spectrum. New funding is helping to expand and continue innovating the Double Up Food Bucks produce incentive programs in Michigan, Colorado, and Western New York.” Fair Food Network will utilize the new funds to expand the Double Up Food Bucks program to more farmers market and grocery stores throughout Michigan. Additionally, funding will be used to expand new technology to make purchases easier for families and farmers, and expand year-round rather than seasonal programming at farmers markets and groceries.

|U.P. organization enables courage for disabled veteransABC 10 / 14 d. 14 h. 52 min. ago more|
MARQUETTE — An organization focused on providing individuals and veterans with physical disabilities, an opportunity to explore the wilderness and harness their natural courage, is well into their second year. Nate Denofre has dedicated his life to the outdoors. “We charter from Charter Fishing on Lake Superior. We take people canoeing, kayaking, and backpacking,” said Courage Incorporated CEO, Nate Denofre. Not only does he love being in the outdoors, but also assisting physically challenged individuals and veterans in their pursuit to enjoy mother nature. “We’ve had people with Multiple Sclerosis that came up last year and just walking a couple hundred feet is a big day for them, and we had them walking miles. When they claim they forget about having M.S. for a couple days, we know we’re on the right track,” said Denofre. Nate was born with his own set of challenges, Amniotic Band Syndrome, which left him without legs from the knees down. “I lost my legs at birth,” said Denofre. Although Nate has lived with this syndrome for his whole life, it does not hold him back. “We prove that the only disability is in the mind and it is, I prove it constantly. Not to be tooting my own horn, but it’s possible and you just have to keep moving, that’s what we offer,” said Denofre. Surfing has been a recent passion that Nate has picked up and just one of the many opportunities available with Courage Incorporated. “I’m hooked on surfing, I love it. It’s awesome and extremely physically challenging, I think it’s almost tougher than going 160 days in the woods,” said Denofre. Everything is completely free of charge for participants and like most non-profit organizations, they rely heavily on donations. “We’re 100% non-profit, volunteer based. We rely on volunteers and donations, no one pays and we all get together and help with whatever we can,” said Denofre. Nate is flexible with finding new activities to assist individuals in achieving their dreams. “We do custom trips, if someone has something that society deems as a disability, we’ll figure something out, a trip or fishing tour, anything we can do to help,” said Denofre. If you are interested in learning more about the services offered by Courage Incorporated, one of their biggest fundraisers of the year is coming up at the Junction Jam 2017 event at the Junction 95 Tavern from August 25th through the 27th.

|Study on Asian Carp suggests multi-million dollar projectABC 10 / 14 d. 14 h. 53 min. ago more|
GREAT LAKES — The U.S Army Corps of Engineers are suggesting a $275M dollar project to keep Asian Carp from entering the Great Lakes. The project would call for building an underwater noise-making system to deter fish from entering the waterway near the Brandon Road Lock and Dam in Illinois to keep the fish from escaping the Mississippi River system into the Great Lakes. It also suggests constructing an electric barrier to repel and stun fish that get through the other barrier. Boats that pass through it would be shot with water jets to remove small and stunned fish that might hitchhike on boat bottoms. Building the barriers would cost more than $275 million, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers paying $179 million and seeking non-federal money for the rest. It estimated construction could be done by 2025. The public can comment on the recommendations until September 21st at the Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin study website here.The post Study on Asian Carp suggests multi-million dollar project appeared first on ABC 10/CW 5.
