“This year, the 'Challenges' theme referred to the issues facing the region and how to address them...
...'What are the things that we are facing?' Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center Director Dan Truckey asked in his introduction. 'The U.P. faces a lot of challenges and opportunities in the future.'
...'Stop the Rocket!' focused on the proposed vertical rocket launch at Granot Loma and the efforts of the group, Citizens for a Safe and Clean Lake Superior, in opposing it.
Dennis Ferraro, a founding member and president of the nonprofit citizens group, said, 'We are dedicated to stopping and preventing a project that proposes to construct a heavy industrial commercial rocket launch site on a beautiful pristine stretch of shoreline about 10 miles north of Marquette near Thoney Point at Granot Loma.'
