Ran into an old friend at work today who works part time for the St. Clair County Sherriff's Marine Division. He told me that they had received word this week that the Army Corps of Engineers will be turning the title to Gull Island over to the Michigan DNR at the end of this year. It's the DNR's intent to turn the island into some kind of wildlife sanctuary. Kinda thought it already was.

Anybody heard anything on this? He's not the kind of guy to start rumors or pass on unsubstantiated BS.

First I've heard of this. Can't imagine someone trying to have control over the island.
Thanks for sharing that...

that island has been there for sooooo long, and just NOW the dnr wants to make it a wildlife sanctuary ???
hmmmmm, wonder if it has ANYTHING to do with the recent PUBLICITY that jobbie nooner has been getting,(news 4)
over exposing it.... since there are actually 200 jobbies that go to this party anymore, and 10,000 others wich half of them are brain dead.
nice......
some sour puss don't like anyone to enjoy themselves
i don't even want to get started on the gull island controversy, the people that come out with bottles on it and throw them carelessly in the fire, water ect !


and trash the island, start fights ect.....

I read this a few weeks back on the JN site, or on MDB. I dismissed it as a rumor, only bcause I haven't heard much about it.

Smitty. Worked with him for several years. Lost my job in 2000 and yesterday was the first time I'd seen him since. Smitty is a good guy and I was happy to see him again.

Problem is that the a$$holes still need to go somewhere, and instead of a remote island of debris, they will head to the moot. Thanks Channel 4

Everybody.......listen up!

First of all, I don't believe anything other than T&A on a porn site. (jobbienooner.com is a porn site!)


The day I believe any of these rumors that happen every year is the day that the island is gated and posted no trespassing. Or the day that it is printed in a lagitimate news paper stating the sale of the island. In the meantime, all this talk is rediculous.
So, let's enjoy the island and have a great time out there.

I agree, but to also add to it. Lets be a little more responsible out there people. Please no broken glass and take your trash with you. Lets all pitch in and pick up after ourselves to make this island fun for everyone.

Convincor, I agree with you but I do tend to believe a Marnie sheriff in the county the island is located in. Noone is more upset about it than me but I really don't see us being able to do anything about it.

The sheriff talking to his buddy who tells his other buddy than he tells his other buddy...............heard that same story last year.


When the sheriff tells the Detroit News or channel 4, only then will I listen.

Not bashing you Rerun. I am sure you are sick of the stories and rumors too?
