About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

UPDATE TO PROTECTED FUND ISSUE

After doing some investigating, I found out that the 45 day "hold" on our protected monies stems from Act 279 of 1984. If the proposal to have protected funds had NOT been on the ballot in November and passed, where do you suppose all the money from snowmobiling permits, hunting and fishing licenses, etc would be???

The first section, # 17.52 is the important part for you to read. I didn't copy the whole act, just the pertinant info. Possibly by now, you already know this info. If so, excuse the email and research.
