Council discusses pool upkeep, maintenance

The Marquette City Council, minus Megan Dauer, met Tuesday, Jan. 8 for their regular monthly meeting.

Public turnout was light, with only a handful of people present.

Fred Peterson asked councilman Dixon Johnson the results of a recent visit from several people connected with a company that is interested in locating a hydroponic vegetable growing operation in Marquette. Johnson reported that four people looked at locations. He asked the group about their water needs for the growing operation and was told the water is recycled and used again and again, lowering the need for great quantities of water.

The Marquette Learning Center, located in the old Marquette Elementary School is slated to open this month.

The Marquette Learning Center is almost a reality, according to director Chelsea Graber.

The MLC, located in a portion of the old Marquette Elementary School, is expected to open this month, with 38 children pre-enrolled and nine staff members hired. The inspections are being completed and the toys and furniture have been unpacked and prepared.

According to Graber, the facility recently had its boiler inspection. After repairs are made to the boiler which will take about a week, the next step will be for the state fire marshall to inspect and approve the premises so MLC can receive its permit to occupy the building.

Put your nutcracker to use this holiday season

Snacking is as much a holiday tradition as turkey, tree lights, parties and shopping.

Those heaping plates of treats rarely provide healthy options, but few people complain, at least not until the New Year, when they realize they gained a few extra pounds.

Actually, though, a healthy holiday alternative might have been there all along, just ignored because of the more enticing sugary treats surrounding it. Many snack trays include healthy nuts of various kinds (after all, this is the season of the nutcracker), but data shows that the typical American is more apt to reach for cookies, candy and chips. And it’s not just a seasonal thing: six out of 10 Americans don’t eat any nuts on a given day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
