Alcona does not become a 2nd amendment sanctuary county

While there is no legality behind this title, it does show that the county supports gun rights for their citizens.Last week 2nd amendment supporters gathered at Alpena’s annex building to do the same thing, however that decision was tabled until later this month. At Alcona’s commission meeting Wednesday morning, supporters voiced reasons why they support this resolution. Chair of Alcona County Republicans, Carrie Mullins said, “It’s not just about hunting. It’s about protecting one’s self, protecting others, and it’s a god–given right. Up here, that’s one of the things we do focus on. Don’t take our guns.” Over a dozen attendees spoke up during the public comment portion of the meeting, and most of them were concerned about current attempts to change gun laws, especially in Virginia.The board of commissioners voted unanimously to approve the resolution, but before they did, there was a significant amendment added. The word sanctuary had been removed. However, the county’s support of the 2nd amendment was made clear. Because the resolution carries no legal changes, chairman of the board, Craig Johnston agreed that this resolution is more of a statement from the commissioners and Alcona’s citizens. “Well I think the statement is that, as the board of commissioners, we will not tolerate infringements on 2nd amendment rights,” he said. “We’ll be very on guard for that happening. I’m sure this group of people will make sure we’re on guard. If anything comes along we will hear from them.”David Adams is a volunteer with Michigan for 2A Counties and he was the one to present the resolution. He said that, overall, he’s satisfied with the outcome. “Here in Alcona County I believe we’re in good shape. The amended resolution will be sent to Lansing and so forth, and I think that was the main purpose to get the word out that we’re not moving on this issue.”While the board of commissioners voiced their support for 2nd amendment rights in their county, it was decided that Alcona will not become a 2nd amendment sanctuary. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alcona County, Alcona County RepublicansContinue ReadingPrevious Huron Pines making the most of the Emily Min Hunt Nature PreserveNext State of Michigan offers resources about auto insurance laws ahead of July 1 changeslast_img read more

first_imgNorth-West Alliance Golf News: EAMONN WINS ALLIANCE CAPTAIN’S PRIZE!A magnificent Captain’s Day was had in Dunfanaghy Golf Club, rightly ranked in the top 100 courses in Ireland. The improved course has been steadily developed by head Greenkeeper Paul McGinley and it is well worth a visit just to see the new remodelled bunkers and tighter fairways. This work has been carried out in-house and the skill with which it has been done is self-evident. Paul, your staff and the greens committee should take a bow.The Captains Day was hosted by Brian Wallace who attended to every possible detail to ensure that the members of the Alliance had a great golfing day, even though the overall scoring was moderate by recent standardsThe winner of Mr. Brian Wallace’s Captain’s Prize was Letterkenny Golf Club member Eamonn McGlinchey.Playing off 6 handicap, Eamonn went around in just three over par, having had 20 points in each nine. Having dropped strokes at the 1st, [par four] the 6th and 11th, his last dropped stroke was at the par five 16th. Eamonn also proceeded to pick up strokes at the par four 4th and the 14th, and although he had a lesson during the week on his swing from Jimmy Gallagher at Letterkenny Driving Range ,it was his chipping and putting that was a joy to behold. Time after time he chipped “dead” to the hole on the few occasions that he missed the green. The reason for the lesson? He is thinking of changing his irons!!!!!. Eamonn, perhaps you need to rethink that idea although maybe the trade-in value of your clubs have now increased due to this Captain’s Prize win.In the nett section, 20 points was the average score for the first nine by the front runners, although Kieran O’Neill had 23pts on his outward nine at this stage, but an indifferent back nine of 16 which included a blank at the 14th par four meant that he had the worst of the 39 pointers. In second place in the “nett” was George McCay who added 20 points to his front nine of 19, yet he also drew a blank at the par five 16th. Kevin Hunter must have thought that he was only there to make up the numbers when, after eight holes he had recorded but 14 points and then, with his putter warmed up after a birdie at the par three 9th, Kevin proceeded to return a level par gross for the next ten holes, gaining 22 points on back nine, to finish on a total of 39pts and, due to a three-way B.O.T.,top spot in the Nett section.In the gross section, the scoring was excellent although only the sixth prize went to a B.O.T.In third place was golfer of the year champion Finnian O’Doherty, fresh from sessions last weekend from the Aspire Ireland coaching team.He was one over for his front nine, two shots in arrears of Marty McDermott who was two under par gross. Finnian was one under for the back nine while Marty was level par which was the reward for four birdies which he had in a row from the 8th to the 11th.His dropped strokes were at the 1st, the 12th and the 18th which gave him an overall one under par round while Finnian was level par for his eighteen holes.An exceptional round of 64 [four under par] on one of his favourite courses came from Michael McGeady.He reeled off five 3’s in a row from the first and had one bogey that at the 6th, that being the only blemish on his card. In all, Michael had ten 3’s, resulting in six birdies!!!. Supreme form indeed. All aspects of his game were awesome from his driving, approach shots to the green and his putter was exceptionally hot. Hopefully, this will set him up for a good season on the tour.FULL RESULTS:NETT SECTION:Ist Kevin Hunter (10) Faughan Valley G.C. 39 pts [b.o.t].2nd George McCay (18) Strabane GC. 39pts [b.o.t].3rd Kieran O’Neill (13) Portsalon G.C. 39 pts [b.o.t].4th Eamonn O’Carroll (12) Letterkenny G.C. 38 pts [b.o.t].5th Alan Chung (19) Faughan Valley G.C. 38 pts [b.o.t].6th Clive Davison (12) Portsalon G.C. 38pts [b.o.t].GROSS SECTION:1st Michael McGeady (scr) North West G.C. 64.2nd Marty McDermott (3) Strabane G.C. 67.3RD Finnian O’Doherty (1) Letterkenny G.C. 68.4th John G.McBride (scr) Portsalon G.C. 69.5TH Seamus McMonagle (scr) Dunfanaghy G.C. 70.6TH Jamie Foley (3) Letterkenny G.C. 71 [b.o.t].Visitor: Graham Cummings (10) City of Derry G.C. 38 ptsSo ended the 2014/15 season and competitions will commence again at Letterkenny Golf Club on 26th September 2015 under the Captaincy of David Forbes of Faughan Valley Golf Club .GOLF NEWS: EAMONN MCGLINCHEY WINS ALLIANCE CAPTAIN’S PRIZE was last modified: March 22nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Alliance NotesgolfNoticesSportlast_img read more
