As local health departments continue vaccinating seniors and essential workers, some health care workers are still waiting.

Cheboygan resident, Sharen Lange is contributing to the national effort of providing face masks for people in need.

 

Lange said she's a part of a Facebook network of seamstresses called Sew You Care.

 

The group takes requests, then once made, face masks are sent to people in need including medical workers, military bases and immunocompromised individuals. 

 

A $1.5 million project has begun to redevelop a vacant hardware building on a former brownfield site in downtown Cheboygan.

The project will add two commercial spaces and six market-rate apartments.

Cheboygan may not be the city it is today without the work of Ellis Olson.

Fisheries biologists are bringing back a program to help combat sea lamprey in Michigan waters.  

Biologists said beginning Monday evening they’re releasing one-thousand sterile male lamprey into the Cheboygan river system.

Over the next few weeks, they’re planning to release three-thousand more sterile male lamprey into the river system.

Fisheries experts said the release is expected to interfere with the creature’s reproduction.
