SPREAD THE WORD!!!
County Road 407 will be opened tonight, Saturday August 11th at approx. 9:00 p.m.
There will be a strictly enforced 45 mph speed limit.
CR 414 to 410 will remain closed and manned barricades will be in place.
We request that residents returning to their homes remove ribbons from their 911 signs and leave a porch or outside light on at all times when staying in the area.
These precautions will greatly assist emergency personnel in the event of another evacuation.
Those with cabins and camps in the area will be allowed to return to check on properties, but are strongly advised to not remain overnight until further notice.
The fire is still active in this area and travelers on CR 407 will encounter large equipment, especially between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
Please remember the 45 mph speed limit and drive with your lights on.
M-123 remains at a 25 mph speed limit and all evacuations in the Chesbrough Lake and Widgeon Creek areas are still in effect.
- Cathy Clementz
- 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!
