I learned this week that I will be receiving the “Outstanding Writer” award in the Marquette County Arts Awards. I feel very honored and pleased to be recognized by the community I have sought to promote through my writing. In the letter I received, I was told I was chosen because:

Advisory Committee as the winner of the “Outstanding Writer” award.
This award is given to a working community writer who has consistently
made an impact in his artistic discipline.The committee believes your
success as the self-publisher and author of The Marquette Trilogy and My
Marquette as well as your leadership roles within regional writers
groups highly qualifies you for this award.

    Congratulations Tyler. How wonderful for you! In doing my research on the Thoneys – thanks to your help I found a Supreme Ct. 2 page hearing which explains Thoneys Pt. Also are you familiar with a book called “Call it North Country” – Upper Michigan by John Bartlow Martin. It contains a one line sentence re the Thoneys Liquors in Ishpeming. Again, congratulations and Thanks again for your help.
