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!

FIRED DNR OFFICER WANTS JOB BACK

He's suspected of knowingly spending embezzled money
BY SHERI McWHIRTERsmcwhirter@record-eagle.com

BOYNE CITY -- Kevin Lockman wants his state job back.

Others think he should be charged with a crime.

Lockman was a conservation officer with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources for nine years, until Oct. 16, 2006, when state officials fired him for misconduct. He's also suspected of a crime for knowingly spending money his wife embezzled in 2005 from now-defunct Northern Preferred Title Company in Charlevoix County.

But the case has languished on a prosecutor's desk for months without resolution.

"I've never closed it out because I'm waiting to hear back on charges," said Boyne City Assistant Police Chief Jeff Gettel, who submitted an arrest warrant request more than a year ago.

Lockman, meanwhile, awaits an arbitration hearing set for April in his effort to again become a state law enforcement officer, said Mary Dettloff, DNR spokeswoman. The agency fired Lockman after conducting an internal probe.
