Water contamination advisories issued for 5 areas in Sleeping Bear Dunes.
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is posting signs warning people that water quality advisories have been issued for five sites within the park’s boundaries.
Elevated bacteria levels were measured late last week at the sprawling park, headquartered in Empire.
The river and creek outlet contamination does not extend into the larger, connecting Lake Michigan, according to information from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
The contamination spots are listed on the DEQ’s Beach Guard site.
Friday, the man and his wife were playing nine holes with several church couples at Arbor Hills Golf Club in Spring Arbor Township, as they often did.

"They are humble, Christian people and they have served in our church for many, many years."
The 80-year-old is also a church elder.
Friday, their companions from the course accompanied them to the hospital.
