There have been enquiries about how to start or operate a home based ‘cottage’ food business.

We’re all used to seeing farmers market roadside produce stands but what about baked goods?

Michigan Department of Agriculture has a comprehensive Q&A web site which will answer many of your questions and put you in touch with food safety staff who can fill in the rest.

Also here’s a direct link to their PDF

Hold the community of Prescott in your heart

Bear Lake Township Fire Department would like to share this post from their web site.

NBC 4 in Los Angeles has posted information of how you can donate to the families of the 19 Prescott Granite Mountain Hotshot members who lost their lives.


“Funds have been set up for the families of 19 firefighters, including four from Southern California, who were killed while battling a wildfire in Arizona.

Of the 19 men killed, 14 were in their 20s. Many are survived by wives and young children.

Donations can be made to a Chase Bank account No. 987218757; or via check by mail to:

United Phoenix Firefighter’s Association
ATTN: Granite Mountain Donations
61 E. Columbus

Donations also can be made online using a PayPal form on the Prescott Firefighter’s Charities website.

“We strive to help the families of the victims,” Tyler Brown said, an intern with the Prescott Police Department who also volunteers with the fire department.

Brown said all proceeds made to the Prescott charities will go directly to the firefighters’ families.”
